Hey, did you hear the one about the ugly sex addict who can’t get laid? Of course you didn’t. We’ve got plenty of films and stories about sex addicts, with star-quality guys in the lead roles. (See: Sam Rockwell in Choke; Michael Fassbender in Shame; David Duchovny in Californication.) Now, in Zipper, Patrick Wilson plays a politician who can’t quit his escort habit, even when it threatens to derail his family and career.
Wilson’s co-stars include Lena Headey, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ray Winstone, and that trio may be enough to demand a viewing. Check out the Zipper trailer below. Read More »

Simon Kinberg is turning back to some classic film science fiction. A new version of Logan’s Run has been in development for years, with various directors (including Nicolas Winding Refn and Kinberg’s X-Men compatriot Bryan Singer) attached to make the film at different times. There’s a constant allure to the property, which depicts a futuristic society in which life is forcibly ended at 30.
Now Kinberg, whose plate is already pretty crowded with writing and producing superhero movies at Fox and writing and producing Star Wars Rebels and a Star Wars Anthology film, is writing a new treatment for Logan’s Run at Warner Bros., which he will produce with Joel Silver. Read More »
Kiernan Shipka has new powers. We all know Shipka from her role as Sally Draper on Mad Men; we watched the young actress grow up on the show along with her character. In the new film One & Two, she also plays a young woman with family troubles, but this is a very different story. The two leads, played by Shipka and Timothée Chalamet of Homeland, are trapped on their family farm by an overbearing father who is terrified of their potential. Familiar family drama, right? Kind of, because the potential in these kids manifests as supernatural powers.
Check out the One & Two trailer below, which also features Grant Bowler of Defiance, and Elizabeth Reaser, who had her own role in the final Mad Men season. Read More »
The first teaser trailer for Spectre, the 25th James Bond film, dropped a few stunning plot hints, including the suggestion that Bond (played once again by Daniel Craig) has some direct link to the organization Spectre, and perhaps more than one link at that. The first extended TV spot had many flashes of action.
Now we’ve got the new Spectre trailer — the first full-length trailer for the movie, in fact — with a lot more footage, and even more info for Bond fans to chew on. There’s action in Mexico, a few cheeky lines, some new gear courtesy of Q, and a lot more mystery around that evil organization, Spectre, which turns out to have deep roots in Bond’s own past. Check it out below! Read More »

This summer, we’ve seen Judy Greer as a mom in Ant-Man and Jurassic World and heard her as a mom in Tomorrowland, which means maybe those films are all actually part of the shared Judy Greer Universe.
But 2015 won’t merely be the year of Greer toiling in supporting roles as a caregiver. She looks like she gets to have a lot of fun and enjoy top billing in Addicted to Fresno, playing a sex addict who tries to get her life together, but accidentally kills a guy and then robs a sex shop, neither of which really helps her plight.
The film also features Natasha Lyonne and a great supporting cast including Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Jessica St. Clair, Molly Shannon, Michael Hitchcock, and Ron Livingston. Check out the funny Addicted to Fresno trailer below. Read More »

The last video promoting the fund-raising collaboration between charitable organization Omaze and the producers and cast of Star Trek Beyond featured a walkthrough of the Enterprise set and some sweet dance moves from new Trek villain actor Idris Elba.
The new charity video is short on dancing (you’ll just see Elba in b-roll footage from the last video) but it does have quite a lot of entertaining patter from writer and co-star Simon Pegg and actor Anton Yelchin. Oh, and there’s a little art department visit with a few props and one alien head.

He’ll direct the Warner Bros. film based on the insanely popular world-building video game. Read More »
