John Krasinski Is the New Jack Ryan

13 Hours trailer

Not too long after Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit opened in theaters, Chris Pine confirmed that was his first and last time playing Tom Clancy’s hero. Since Kenneth Branagh’s film was the lowest grossing Jack Ryan picture to date, that news didn’t come as a shock to anyone. Shadow Recruit performed well overseas, but the thriller only made around $50 million in the states. The movie itself is a fine thriller, it just wasn’t exciting enough to leave audiences craving more adventures with Jack Ryan.

However, the character will soon return in an Amazon series. Last September, Amazon won the bidding war for the Jack Ryan show, and now they’ve found their star, John Krasinski (13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi).

Short Circuit LEGO

The LEGO Technic line allows master builders to create working robots and other creations with moving parts, but now a custom LEGO Ideas project is hoping to bring a cinematic robot to life with building blocks, just without all the complicated moving parts.

Johnny Five is the lovable, curious robot from the ’80s classic Short Circuit. And while technology would certainly allow for someone to build their own Johnny Five pretty easily today, it would be much easier if you were able to build a LEGO Johnny Five. That’s what master builder PepaQuin is hoping happens with his custom creation, and the good news is this project is already on its way to hopefully becoming an official set. Check out the Short Circuit LEGO below! Read More »

Preacher - Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy 1

We’re only a few short weeks away from seeing AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher. Any fan of the comic book series knows it’s been a long journey for this property. When Preacher was being developed as a film it attracted plenty of talent, but even a director as capable as Sam Mendes couldn’t crack the story. Mendes, however, predicted the story would play better as a television series and that “someone will come along that has a really good take on it and is able to do it.” If the early reviews for the AMC series are any indication, the Road to Perdition director was correct.

Below, watch the latest Preacher teaser trailer.

Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad

Regardless of whether you loved Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or loathed them, the world they exist in probably isn’t one you’d want to live in. It’s dark and dangerous and grimy, and often visited by superpowered extraterrestrials who reduce entire cities to rubbish. But dropping by for a brief visit? Yeah, that could be fun. And you’ll get your chance to do just that this summer.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood and DC Entertainment have revealed that DC Universe: The Exhibit is coming to the Warner Bros. lot, with sets and props from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the upcoming Suicide SquadRead More »

Me Before You Trailer

With Game of Thrones back in full swing, fans are happy to have Emilia Clarke back as their Mother of Dragons. But this summer they’ll see another side of the British actress as she stars in the tearjerking romance Me Before You, based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes. No, it isn’t a Nicholas Sparks movie, but that doesn’t mean it’s not full of sappy, cheesy romance.

The story follows a caretaker named Louisa Clark (Clarke) tasked with taking on a paralyzed young banker named Will Traynor (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games franchise), who is having trouble finding joy in life since an accident put him in a wheelchair a couple years ago. But Clarke’s endless charm just might be enough to get him out and about, as evidenced by a new Me Before You trailer that you can see after the jump. Read More »

Shiloh Fernandez

Hollywood is ready to roll the dice on another board game adaptation. A bidding war has broken out over Monsterpocalypse, a robots-versus-monsters game adaptation that has Fede Alvarez on board to direct. If the concept reminds you a bit of Pacific Rim, you’re not the only one who’s noticed — an earlier version of the project stalled after Guillermo del Toro’s jaegers and kaiju stomped all over theaters in 2013.
