Equals teaser trailer

Kristen Stewart knows a thing or two about forbidden love. She is, after all, still best known for starring in a series of films about a girl and her vampire boyfriend. And Nicholas Hoult‘s done the whole dystopia thing — he’s coming out of the toxic wasteland of Mad Max: Fury Road. Now the two of them are coming together for EqualsDrake Doremus‘ sci-fi love story about two lonely souls who find love in a hopeless place.

Said place is a sterile future where all emotion has been outlawed and eradicated. Or at least that’s what the powers that be are striving for. The truth is that there’s a weird disease going around referred to as “Switched On Syndrome,” which sparks feeling in its victims. Hoult and Stewart play two of the afflicted, who strike up a forbidden passion. Distributor A24 has just dropped the first Equals teaser trailer, and you can watch it after the jump.  Read More »

ZOOLANDER 2

It can be tempting to react to the never-ending torrent of remakes, reboots, sequels, and spinoffs with a knee-jerk groan. Truthfully, though, that’s not always fair. Creed was a spinoff-reboot-sequel combo that restored the long-running Rocky series to its former glory. Ditto The Force Awakens for Star Wars. On the TV side, Ash vs. Evil Dead and Fargo have both managed to recapture the spirit of their respective originals, while also bringing something new to the table.

But if those titles are evidence that Hollywood’s obsession with existing IP can yield excellent results, Zoolander 2 represents the worst-case scenario. Not because Zoolander 2 is the worst movie ever made — it isn’t — but because it’s what we fear every time one of these projects gets announced: a joyless cash-grab more interested in rehashing old ideas than building on them.  Read More »

Danny McBride Boards a Spaceship for ‘Alien: Covenant’

Danny McBride in Eastbound and Down

It was a given that Michael Fassbender would return for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant, and the addition of Katherine Waterston as his new leading lady wasn’t exactly surprising either — she’s exactly the kind of young, on-the-verge star you’d expect to see cast in a big-budget blockbuster like this.

The newest new cast member, however, is definitely unexpected. Danny McBride is reportedly in talks to join the outer-space adventure. It’s a rare foray into dramatic territory for the actor, who’s best known for comedy projects like Eastbound and DownRead More »

Battlestar Galactica

Just as Bill Adama refused to give up on humanity, even after countless Cylon attacks and supply outages and political disputes, Hollywood is not giving up on the notion of a Battlestar Galactica movie, no matter how many false starts they’ve had in the past. The latest team to attempt to try and maneuver this big old spaceship to the big screen will be Michael De Luca and Scott Stuber, who are producing for Universal.  Read More »

Deadpool

Despite the fact that Deadpool doesn’t officially open for another two days, plenty of people have already seen it. Critics began posting their reviews over the weekend, and fans treated to sneak previews were sharing their excited reactions even before that. Still, as we reported earlier this week, there was one major detail missing from those early screenings: the second post-credits sequence.

The good, right, Professor X-approved thing to do here would be to buy a ticket to see Deadpool in theaters this weekend, and see the scene in its proper context. But Deadpool probably wouldn’t be the kind of guy to resist getting the dirty details in advance, and if you can’t either we’ve got them after the jump. (And then you should still buy a ticket to see Deadpool in theaters this weekend, because it’s really fun and even better with an enthusiastic crowd.) Here’s a little clue: it teases the addition of a major new character to the X-Men cinematic universe.  Read More »

Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood

J.K. Rowling‘s original Harry Potter book series ended in 2007, and the Harry Potter film series followed not too long after in 2011. But the Harry Potter franchise is as robust and productive as ever. In fact, 2016 is already shaping up to be a huge year for Potterheads. Not only do we have a spinoff movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, coming this fall, we’ve also got the imminent opening of Universal Studios’ The Wizarding World of Harry Potter this spring and the West End debut of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this summer.

Of course, all that magic tends to add up. And if your Gringotts vault isn’t exactly overflowing with Galleons, you’ll make sure you want to spend your money wisely. So today, we’ve got a closer look at the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, and some news about the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child book due to hit shelves. Yes, you read that right: we’re getting an eighth Harry Potter book.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Johnny Depp Donald Trump movie

As we’ve seen in Pirates of the CaribbeanAlice in WonderlandDark ShadowsTusk, Black Mass, and really too many other movies to count, Johnny Depp loves nothing more than to bury himself in makeup, wigs, and prosthetics and emerge as a total weirdo. But his latest role may be his most monstrous transformation yet.

No, we’re not talking about the Invisible Man in The Invisible Man. We’re talking about Johnny Depp playing Donald Trump in The Art of the Deal, a Funny or Die biopic (well, “biopic”) about the businessman turned presidential candidate. The entire 50-minute movie has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.  Read More »

Amy Schumer Live at the Apollo

It seemed like Amy Schumer was cracking jokes everywhere in 2015. She had her first starring feature role in Trainwreck, and her first HBO stand-up special Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo. She hosted Saturday Night Live for the very first time and returned to Comedy Central for the third season of her sketch series Inside Amy Schumer.

But after that impressive run, it seems Schumer is ready to branch out into new territory as an actress: drama. Schumer has just boarded the PTSD drama Thank You for Your Service, joining Miles Teller. Oscar-nominated American Sniper writer Jason Hall is directing.  Read More »

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World - Sex Bob-Omb

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the Honest Trailers team is taking on one of the internet’s favorite love stories: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. And it will probably not surprise you too much to discover that, like so many other movie romances we hold near and dear to our hearts, it completely falls apart under a bit of real-world scrutiny.

Or, in the blunt words of the Honest Trailer narrator, that it’s “two hours of pure nerd wish-fullfillment” in which every character but Knives is secretly “a horrible garbage person.” But hey, they do really love Edgar Wright‘s slick, video game-inspired style. Watch the Scott Pilgrim Honest Trailer after the jump.  Read More »
