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. Find out about the Rogue One Alan Tudyk live-action cameo below.  Read More »

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 »

Anna Kendrick Robin

Ben Affleck seemed deeply skeptical when Anna Kendrick (jokingly) demanded he cast her as Robin in his solo Batman movie. But she’s got the support of at least one of Affleck’s The Batman co-stars. Joe Manganiello, who’ll play the villain Deathstroke, is throwing his weight behind the “Anna Kendrick for Robin” campaign on social media.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Thor Ragnarok tone

It wasn’t the splashiest surprise at this year’s Marvel Comic-Con panel, but the new Thor: Ragnarok logo definitely got some fans talking. As our own Ethan Anderton put it at the time, it looked “very similar to the old logo for the Masters of the Universe cartoon and toy line.” It certainly stood in sharp contrast to the more traditional-looking logos of Thor movies past.

Well, it turns out the retro vibe is very much intentional. In a Reddit AMA, director Taika Waititi described Thor: Ragnarok as “’70s/’80s sci-fi fantasy,” and teased that it might just be “the most ‘out there’ of all the Marvel movies.” In addition, he admitted he tries to ignore the other Thor films, swore up and down that he knows nothing about the rest of Marvel’s future plans, and promised Mark Ruffalo‘s Bruce Banner would steal the show.  Read More »
