Thinking about just how awkward this holiday season is going to be with your family this year can be a depressing and uncomfortable experience. Watching someone else suffer through a really awkward holiday season, though? That’s comedy gold. Or so the new comedy Why Him? would like to think.
Bryan Cranston plays the doting father of a bright young woman (Zoey Deutch) who’s excited to introduce her new boyfriend (James Franco) to her family. Problem is, he’s kind of the worst — an Silicon Valley “zillionaire” who has “literally no filter.” Making matters even more upsetting, he’s thinking about proposing. At first the boyfriend tries to ingratiate himself with the family, but when that plan fails an all-out war develops between the would-be in-laws.

20th Century Fox found great success this year with the critical and audience love of Deadpool. However, they also took a step back with an underperforming X-Men: Apocalypse, stagnant development on a Gambit spin-off, and recently, troubling personnel shuffling on Deadpool 2. All that combined with the fact that Logan will be the last movie featuring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and we might be looking at Fox’s comic book universe stumbling very soon. And the studio is reportedly already trying to recover with a potential soft reboot of the X-Men franchise. Read More »
Believe it or not, Independence Day: Resurgence was a movie that was released in theaters this past summer. I don’t know if it’s because the election has made this year feel longer than ever, or if the sequel what just that forgettable, but it’s probably a combination of both. Thankfully, Honest Trailers is here to give some value to the sequel by completely skewering it, mostly for the fact that it’s so awful, despite taking 20 years to finally get made.

Even though Sony Pictures was able to strike a deal with Marvel Studios to share the rights to Spider-Man, fans have learned that 20th Century Fox is nowhere near considering striking a similar to deal to share characters like X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool.

While a certain segment of comic book fans have spent the past decade-plus complaining that the cinematic Wolverine was a tall and strapping Australian man and not a stout weirdo, it’s very possible that the superhero movie boom would never have taken off without Hugh Jackman. The man is inherently likable on camera, managing to lend both humor and gravity to potentially ridiculous situations. And yes, he is also unfairly handsome.
