Deadpool Domino shortlist

Deadpool‘s record-breaking box office guaranteed a sequel, and while we’ve yet to learn when exactly we might see that sequel we’re starting to get a better idea of its shape. A couple of months ago we heard the character Domino might join the Merc with a Mouth on his next outing. Today a new report reveals which actresses could play her. Among the names on the shortlist are Mary Elizabeth WinsteadLizzy Caplan, and Sienna MillerRead More »

Always Shine trailer

Reconnecting with old friends can be a tricky proposition even under the best of circumstances, but the best frenemies at the heart of Always Shine aren’t in the best of circumstances. Mackenzie Davis and Caitlin FitzGerald lead Sophia Takal‘s psychological thriller as a pair of longtime pals who head up to Big Sur together in an effort to repair their bond. But the trip quickly turns toxic as the women are beset by jealousy and unhappiness, and begin to turn on each other.

Always Shine earned high praise at its Tribeca Film Festival world premiere, with Davis even scooped up a Best Actress award for her work. If you’ve ever watched Halt and Catch Fire or Masters of Sex and wished Davis and FitzGerald, respectively, had even more to do, this definitely looks like a movie worth checking out. Watch the Always Shine trailer below.  Read More »

Billy Lynn 120 fps theaters

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit was supposed to jumpstart a cinematic revolution, as the first mainstream feature film shot and released in 48 frames per second (as opposed to the usual 24 fps). Alas, it didn’t exactly work out that way, as audiences complained about the “soap opera effect” of the higher frame rate. Nevertheless, Ang Lee decided to double down on the technology, making Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk the first movie ever shot in 120 frames per second.

But there’s a very good chance you’ll never get to see it as Lee intended. Turns out there’ll be only about half a dozen theaters in the world, including two in the U.S., that are equipped to show the movie to its exacting, cutting-edge specifications: 120 fps, 3D, 4K resolution. Which may be for the best, based on the disastrous reactions to the film’s debut screening last weekend at the New York Film Festival.  Read More »

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

Ghostbusters was neither this summer’s best film nor this summer’s worst film, but it’s definitely the frontrunner for this summer’s most divisive film. The exhausting culture war over Paul Feig‘s reboot began the moment it was announced and intensified after the trailer was released, peaking with the film’s release in July. But it’s over, at least for now. The dust has settled. We’ve all survived and moved on. And now here comes Honest Trailers to offer their two cents on the whole thing.

The Ghostbusters Honest Trailer takes the unusual step of turning off YouTube comments, which is probably for the best considering the toxic online conversation surrounding this movie. (“You did this to yourself, internet,” scolds the narrator.) But that doesn’t mean they’re pulling their punches. “It’s bad,” the narrator laments. “I’m not gonna lie to you guys. I mean, it’s not as bad as they said it was gonna be, but still, it’s pretty bad.” Watch the Ghostbusters Honest Trailer below.  Read More »

Rogue One Star Wars k-2so

It’s no secret Alan Tudyk has a role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. As we’ve discussed extensively, he plays mo-cap character K-2SO, an Imperial droid reprogrammed by Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) to work for the Rebel Alliance. But it turns out he almost had a second, live-action role in the movie as well. Unfortunately, the cameo was cut from the movie at the last minute.

Captain Planet movie

Well, everything else from the ’90s is getting rebooted, so it was surely just a matter of time before we wound up here: Paramount is looking to make a Captain Planet movie, with Leonardo DiCaprio on board to produce. Also looking to get involved is Everybody Wants Some!! star Glen Powell, but not as an actor — instead, he’s in talks to write the script with Jono MattRead More »

Assassin's Creed trailer

Michael Fassbender may be able to fly and bend metal as Magneto in the X-Men movies, but he stands to pull off an even more impressive feat in his last film of the year, Assassin’s Creed: convincing audiences that a video game movie can actually be good. Okay, perhaps we’re being a bit unfair — Warcraft definitely had its moments, even if it was kind of a mess overall, and The Angry Birds Movie was a bonafide box office hit — but the fact remains that on the whole, audiences have had very good reason to be skeptical about video game movies for a very long time.

Thankfully, though, this one looks more promising than most. Fassbender’s Macbeth director Justin Kurzel is at the helm, and based on the footage so far it appears he has not lost his eye for beauty. Plus, it’s got an all-star cast including Marion Cotillard, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, and Michael K. Williams. That’s a freakin’ great lineup for any movie. Check out the newest Assassin’s Creed trailer below.  Read More »

Borrowed Time short film

Pixar has a well-earned reputation for a willingness to go dark. The first 20 minutes of Up can reduce even the most stoic men and women to tears, and Toy Story 3 gets scarier than most PG-13 blockbusters. Heck, the studio once released an entire film about the importance of feeling bad sometimes. But there’s territory so poignant even Pixar won’t go there. So Pixar animators do so in their downtime instead.

Borrowed Time is a short film from co-directors Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, who’ve been chipping away at this project on the side while spending their days on movies like Inside Out and Brave. Set in the Old West, it follows an aging sheriff filled with regret and guilt over one tragic memory from his youth. It’s meticulously designed and deeply emotional, like Pixar’s best work, but with a more mature vibe. Oh, and best of all, it’s available to watch for free for a limited time. Hit the jump to check it out right now.  Read More »
