When it comes to entertainment today, the nostalgia train is chugging along rather smoothly as Hollywood remakes, reboots and recycles anything and everything that people loved from decades ago. Now that children of the 90s are starting to have kids of their own, movie studios, TV networks and streaming services are all trying to occupy their spare time with shows like Girls Meets World and Fuller House, as well as sequels like Jumanji. But the one movie that hasn’t been capitalized upon again (at least not quite yet) is the live-action animation hybrid sports comedy Space Jam.
There’s plenty of nostalgic love for the Warner Bros. Pictures movie that brought Michael Jordan and all of the Looney Tunes together on the big screen, and that’s blinded people as to just how lazy the movie really is. Either that or they just don’t care. But Honest Trailers is here to remind you as they deliver the third movie in their Fan Appreciation Week line-up.

UPDATE: Sony has officially announced a release date for their animated Spider-Man movie, along with another director and confirmation that Miles Morales will be the main character. You can find the details below.
Even though Sony Pictures appears to have Spider-Man back on track thanks to their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring the webslinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the studio is still working on a completely different version of the wallcrawler.
An animated Spider-Man movie was first announced at CinemaCon back in April of 2015 with The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller producing alongside Avi Arad and Amy Pascal. The movie was originally slated for a release in the summer of 2018, but has since been pushed back to Christmas. However, we still haven’t heard how this animated Spider-Man movie will be different from the new live-action Spider-Man franchise, other than breaking new visual ground.
That changes today if a new casting call is to be believed, as it indicates that we might finally see a version of Spider-Man that fans have been clamoring for since The Amazing Spider-Man was in development a few years ago. Read More »
If Netflix landing new comedy specials from Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock wasn’t enough to solidify the streaming service as the best place for new stand-up comedy, the latest addition to their roster should do the trick.
Jerry Seinfeld has just struck a new deal with Netflix that effectively makes the streaming service the new home for all of his comedic endeavors. This includes stand-up specials, his continuing series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and the potential for new programming from the comedian.

When it comes to animation, Walt Disney Pictures has long been a shining example of how to tell stories that not only strike an emotional chord but also deliver stunning visuals. Though there are some who think the House of Mouse is overrated, you’d be hard pressed to find another animation studio that has so abundantly and consistently delivered such magnificent movies.
Now one editor has assembled a supercut showing off the incredible visuals that Disney has brought to life over the 80 years that they’ve been making feature length animated films. With over six minutes of footage spanning from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937 to Moana in 2016, this video will have you wanting to go through your entire Disney catalog all over again.

In March, we’ll get to see Emma Watson become a Disney princess in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. We’ve already heard her belt out one of the signature tunes from the movie in the most recent TV spot for the movie, and she just looks perfect as Belle, whether it’s her simple blue and white dress, or the elegant yellow ballgown she wears when she dances the night away with the Beast.
But before Emma Watson took on the role of Belle, you might remember that she was in talks to play Cinderella in Kenneth Branagh’s live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic that came out back in 2015. Lily James ended up landing the role of that Disney princess after Watson passed on the role back in 2013, but we never found out why. That changes today as an interview reveals why Emma Watson turned down Cinderella. Read More »
Since Hollywood is remaking and rebooting everything else that hit the big screen in the 1980s and 1990s, it was only a matter of time before they started digging deeper into sports territory.
White Men Can’t Jump is one of the best comedies to come out of the 1990s. Written and directed by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham), the film follows Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes as two hustling street basketball players who are either trying to swindle each other out of money on the court, or working together to swindle other players out of theirs. Now the 1992 film is getting a remake from Black-ish creator Kenya Barris, and he has a couple of professional athletes helping to make it happen. Read More »

We’re just a few weeks away from FX unleashing their new comic book series Legion. The new TV show follows David (Dan Stevens), a man who has been schizophrenic since he was a child, being placed in and out of psychiatric hospitals. While David and all those around him have presumed that he’s merely mentally ill, the realization soon begins to set in that all of these voices and visions in his head may be a result of him being a mutant.
Legion is based on a Marvel Comics title where David is the son of Professor Charles Xavier, and since it involves mutants in general, fans have been wondering how/if the series will connect to the X-Men movies. Unfortunately, for those hoping for some kind of connective tissue, it has been further confirmed that Legion will exist in its own universe. However, the good news is that another X-Men television series in development at FOX will not be so separated from the X-Men franchise.

A new Netflix original comedy series is coming to the streaming service next month starring Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore, but it’s not exactly what you would expect from either of them.
Santa Clarita Diet might sound like the latest weight loss craze for people to make their New Year’s resolutions come to fruition (and the teasers from a little while back certainly played into that). But it’s actually the new comedy series that finds Drew Barrymore as a normal suburban woman who happens to have died at some point, and yet has inexplicably kept on living her life, but with one big change: she is now hungry for raw flesh.
As any devoted husband would do, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) decides to help her satisfy her cravings, and her teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) is totally cool with it too. Watch the new Santa Clarita Diet trailer to see how this all shakes out. Read More »
