One of the recurring themes of 2016 is going to be Zac Efron, comedy star. The High School Musical alum has not one, not two, but three separate comedies coming out this year. The first, Dirty Grandpa, has already come and gone, and this summer brings Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
Efron leads the latter as the titular Dave, while Adam DeVine plays Mike. As the title suggests, the Stangle brothers need wedding dates. Their hard-partying ways have ruined every family gathering, and their dad (Stephen Root) figures a couple of sweet girls will help keep them in line at their sister’s wedding. They end up with Tatiana (Aubrey Plaza) and Alice (Anna Kendrick), who turn out to be much, much more than they bargained for. Watch the first Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates trailer after the jump.

One of the most iconic Super Bowl spots of all time was the tease for the original Independence Day, 20 years ago this year. Therefore it only makes sense that 20th Century Fox would bring a tease for the sequel Independence Day: Resurgence to Super Bowl 50, and it did not disappoint in showing the return of the most deadly aliens Earth has ever faced. Take a look at the Independence Day Resurgence Super Bowl spot below! Read More »

There’s just under a week to go until Deadpool hits theaters, and that’s enough time for one last, big marketing push from 20th Century Fox. Star Ryan Reynolds and his colleagues were reportedly all over the Bay Area this weekend, handing out chimichangas and taking over a local bar, and their big weekend culminated today in an appropriately irreverent Deadpool Super Bowl spot. The big game may be sacred territory for much of America, but nothing is off-limits for the Merc with a Mouth. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
This weekend brings Super Bowl 50, and just as with every Super Bowl before it, advertisers will be pulling out all the stops to spend big bucks on commercials that millions will see. Even though there will be more than just hardcore sports fans watching, advertisers still know their audience. That’s why a new tease for the inspiring sports drama Eddie the Eagle, starring Kingsman: The Secret Service breakout actor Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman, uses respected football players who caught an advance screening of the movie to help hype it up to the masses.

Title notwithstanding, Alien: Covenant is a Prometheus sequel, and as such we’ve been expecting it to pick up where that earlier adventure left off. But it seems at least one major development will have taken place by the time we revisit that universe.
Director Ridley Scott confirms Noomi Rapace will not return as archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw, leaving Michael Fassbender‘s murderous android David the only character from the last film set to return. He’ll be joined by some new characters, though, including one played by Katherine Waterston. Read More »
In just under a couple weeks, fans will be getting the Deadpool movie they’ve been wanting for years. The film starring Ryan Reynolds is officially R-rated, and the Merc with a Mouth comic creator has said it’s the best version of his character that he’s ever seen. The movie is so dirty that it has been banned in China. But if for some reason the film isn’t as raunchy as fans hoped, co-star T.J. Miller says there will be a much dirtier Deadpool director’s cut coming later this year. Read More »
The Martian represents Sir Ridley Scott‘s grand return to science-fiction and what a return. Unfortunately, the director behind Blade Runner and Alien was not nominated for Best Director at the Academy Awards. But that’s no matter, as his inspiring, exciting, and funny “comedy” (as the Golden Globes called it) will stand the test of time. Drew Goddard‘s (The Cabin in the Woods) script features some of the best material the director has worked with in years and while the screenwriter did a tremendous job adapting Andy Weir‘s novel, but it wasn’t always easy for the screenwriter.
