This weekend brought the first episode of Saturday Night Live in 2017, and the writers had a tough time coming back from break. Hosted by Felicity Jones, the episode started off strong with the cold open featuring the return of Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump, but then it takes a sharp turn into being more than a rough return for the late night sketch show.
We recount the best and worst sketches from the Felicity Jones hosted Saturday Night Live after the jump. Read More »
Though most of Hollywood is interested in remaking, rebooting or retooling the highest rated TV shows and highest grossing blockbusters franchises, some attention is being paid to giving the treatment to cult classic titles. Such is the case with a series adaptation of Guy Ritchie’s crime comedy Snatch.
Snatch has been turned into a 10-episode series at Sony’s free streaming service Crackle (the same company behind Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and the Joe Dirt sequel no one asked for). It doesn’t follow the same story as the movie, but it tries to capture the spirit and style with the chronicle of a real life heist that happened in London. It also features Harry Potter franchise star Rupert Grint and Gossip Girl heartthrob Ed Westwick in the ensemble cast, but will it be enough to get people to watch?
Check out the Snatch TV series trailer below and decide for yourself, but beware it’s slightly NSFW. Read More »
It’s no secret that a new Logan trailer is coming soon. 20th Century Fox is sending out the frames of the trailer to some lucky fans to assemble online (they’re on the way already), and the new glimpse at the Wolverine sequel should be coming shortly thereafter.
In the meantime, director James Mangold is holding fans over with some new images from the set featuring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and franchise newcomer Dafne Keen as X-23. Plus, he’s also release a snippet of the score from The Wolverine composer Marco Beltrami (not Cliff Martinez), and it sounds rather haunting and frantic.

Last fall we got a teaser for The Disney Channel’s new Tangled animated series. Instead of being computer animated like the original movie, this is a 2D stylized animated series that takes place after the events of the hit movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios. But before that series begins, it will be preceded by a TV movie, and the first trailer for it has just arrived.
Tangled: Before Ever After has Rapunzel and Eugene back (voiced again by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi), and while the end of the movie saw the long, flowing blonde hair done away with in favor of a short, brunette style, it looks like that doesn’t last long. Some kind of magic gives Rapunzel back her golden locks, but I’m not entirely sure why that’s a bad thing.

Rumors that Maisie Williams will be in New Mutants remain unconfirmed for now, but we can say for sure she’ll be starring in an upcoming superhero film. Sadly, it’s not as the superhero. Instead, iBoy has her as the BFF / love interest to Tom (Bill Milner), a teenager who gains superpowers after a violent attack leaves him with bits of smartphone embedded in his brain. It all sounds pretty silly, but then again so does “teenager gains superpowers after radioactive spider bite.”
Netflix has just unveiled the first iBoy trailer for you to judge, and you can check it out after the jump. Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get the band back together with Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, ponder what it takes to be a domestic terrorist, put another notch in the bedpost with one more zombie movie, be a teen girl coming of age in front of the camera, and get with the co-creator of Chappelle’s Show for a novel way to tell a joke.
