If Gerard Butler screaming as a power-hungry god along with tons of crazy creatures flying around and destroying things doesn’t get you interested in Alex Proyas‘ action epic, then nothing will. Lionsgate has just debuted a 60-second Super Bowl spot for Gods of Egypt, attempting to get the crowd that loves both football and 300 on board this positively insane looking movie. There’s a good chance it just might work. Watch the Gods of Egypt Super Bowl spot after the jump. Read More »

Joining the barrage of remakes and reboots, the action adventure TV series MacGyver will be making a comeback. But what’s unique about the return of this property is that it has both a film adaptation and a TV series reboot in the works at the same time.
Just a few days ago, CBS officially ordered a pilot episode for a new MacGyver series, inspired by the show that ran on ABC from 1985 to 1992. In addition, today Lionsgate revealed that they’re working on a MacGyver movie, something that has been kicking around Hollywood for awhile, never finding any firm ground at various studios over the years. Find out more about each of these new MacGyver incarnations below. Read More »

Let’s just get this out of the way right now: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was a bad show. You liked it when you were a kid and remain fond of it now because nostalgia is nice and comforting, but let’s not pretend it is anything worthy of adoration in 2016. You, as human being of sound body and mind capable of going online and reading an article, should look upon Lionsgate’s upcoming Power Rangers movie with a certain amount of dread. This is what it means to be an adult. This and taxes and horrible weddings you must attend out of social obligation. I’m sorry. But it’s true.
And yet, the news that Elizabeth Banks has been cast as the lead villain in director Dean Israelite‘s upcoming film somehow manages to speak volumes about what kind of movie they’re making. I’ll say this much: if you insist on making a Power Rangers movie, casting someone as delightful as Banks is a step in the right direction.

Fans of TRON were disappointed to hear that the developing sequel TRON: Ascension was dead at Disney as of last summer.

People sometimes talk about “the critics” as if they were a single monolithic entity, as in “the critics love Carol” or “the critics hate Paul Blart.” In truth, though, it’s uncommon for critics to reach unanimous consensus on much of anything. Film criticism is highly subjective by its very nature, which means even the most gorgeously wrought masterpieces will leave some viewers unmoved, while even the most lazily slapped together dreck will tickle a few people in the right spots.
Uncommon, that is, but not unheard of. There are rare occasions where the film reviewers will rise up as one to give a film a perfect 0% score on Rotten Tomatoes. In 2016, the first film to achieve that dubious distinction is Norm of the North, Lionsgate’s animated adventure about a polar bear (voiced by Rob Schneider) trying to stop real estate development in the Arctic.

Jamie Foxx, last seen ferrying Quevenzhané Wallis around town in the Annie reboot, is preparing to take on another classic character. He’ll play the Little John to Taron Egerton‘s Robin Hood in the upcoming Robin Hood: Origins, which as you’ve probably gleaned from the title is the “gritty origin story in the vein of The Dark Knight” version of the classic English folk tale.

It’s hard to begrudge the 72-year old Robert De Niro for taking work and it’s even harder to begrudge a young up-and-comer like Zac Efron from acting in any movie where he gets to work alongside a genuine living legend. It’s just hard to feel good about Dirty Grandpa, which is certainly a movie that exists and was made by people and had a budget that allowed a hard-working crew to pay their mortgages and feed their families.
The final Dirty Grandpa trailer is here and it offers exactly what you’d expect from a movie titled Dirty Grandpa. Watch it below, if that is a thing that you want to do.

2008’s Rambo said everything it needed to about its titular character. Writer, director, and star Sylvester Stallone gave the character closure, just as he did for Rocky Balboa with 2006’s Rocky Balboa. Nevertheless, the Creed star has expressed interest over the years in making another sequel, possibly called Last Blood Rambo. But apparently he’s had a change of heart.
Learn why Stallone will not direct another Rambo sequel after the jump.
