Chris Pratt ghostbusters

It seems like Chris Pratt is up for every major franchise these days, from Indiana Jones to Ghostbusters. But the operative word there might be “seems.” Pratt himself has now addressed those rumors, and the long and short of it is, well, don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. (Except this, I guess.) Get the Chris Pratt Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones quotes after the jump.  Read More »

Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher

Mad Max masculinity

In a typically testosterone-heavy summer movie season, Mad Max: Fury Road stands out for its unapologetic feminist streak. Most obviously, this is manifested in the compelling female characters, and the (apparently, distressingly) radical notion that women are not property.

But the film has just as much to say about men — specifically what masculinity is, and what place it has in our society. At the center of the film are two types of masculinity: the toxic, destructive kind represented by Immortan Joe, and the healthy, productive kind represented by Max. The conflict between them drives the movie, and points a way forward for our world.

The Maze Runner The Scorch Trials (1)

After narrowly escaping the maze in the first film, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his comrades discover that life outside the Glade is no picnic either in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Turns out the Glade was just Phase One of a program developed by the none too subtly named WCKD, as a response to a catastrophic solar flare that has decimated the planet.

In search of answers, our heroes head out into an unforgiving desert landscape known as the Scorch, filled with roving zombie-like creatures known as Cranks. (This franchise loves capitalizing things for no reason.) Basically, think Mad Max meets Oblivion, plus the zombies from 28 Days Later. Yeah. Not a good scene. Watch the first Maze Runner The Scorch Trials trailer after the jump. Read More »

Lex Luthor warsuit

Our first, and so far only official look at Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed that Jesse Eisenberg would be sporting the character’s classic chrome dome. But it didn’t reveal much else. We still don’t know how exactly he’ll fit into the story, or even what the rest of him will look like.

Now, however, a juicy new rumor suggests Eisenberg’s Lex will be borrowing some other aspects of the character’s comic book appearance as well — namely, his purple and green warsuit. Read all about the Lex Luthor warsuit rumor after the jump.  Read More »

Inside Out

Pixar never stopped being good, but for a little while it stopped being great. Cars 2 was the first Pixar movie to get a “Rotten” score, and while Brave and Monsters University fared better they couldn’t live up to the likes of Up and Wall-E.

So there’s a lot riding on Pete Docter‘s Inside Out, which with its inventive premise and emotional appeal, looks like a potential return to form for the studio. And now that the film has made its debut at Cannes, it seems our hopes were not misplaced. Get the Inside Out early buzz after the jump.  Read More »

Tomorrowland Character posters

From the beginning, Tomorrowland has been shrouded in secrecy. But now Disney has finally opened up that mystery box for critics, and the reviews are starting to pour in.

Directed by Brad Bird from a script he wrote with Damon Lindelof, Tomorrowland centers on an idealistic teenager (Britt Robertson) and a former boy genius (George Clooney) who journey to a utopian place called Tomorrowland.

It’s a sci-fi film that calls for hope and optimism, standing in stark contrast to the dark dystopias the clog our multiplexes these days. But do good intentions make for a great movie in this case? Get the Tomorrowland early buzz after the jump. Read More »
