As we hope that some upcoming video game movies will break the mold of underwhelming adaptations that has defined video game films since the 90s, one more has been tossed on to the growing pile of forthcoming video game-based projects.
Today, Lionsgate has announced that they’re developing a Borderlands movie. It’s based on the RPG/first-person shooter combo game that follows a group of stranded colonists on an alien planet that has been left for dead, and is slowly moving closer to the sun, sparking the rise of horrifying creatures to wreak havoc on those left behind.

It’s impossible to resist the idea of seeing Tom Hardy playing twins, and so we’re going to indulge our affinity for that idea with a new trailer for Legend, the UK gangster film in which Hardy plays Ron and Reggie Kray, the twins who became infamous as rulers of London’s underworld in the 1960s. The film comes from Brian Helgeland (who se credits include, among other things, being co-screenwriter of LA Confidential, and director of A Knight’s Tale and 42), who writes and directs based on the true story of the brothers’ wild lives. Check out the new Legend trailer after the break. Read More »
Earlier this year we watched Kids React to The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, and then we went to the opposite end of the spectrum to watch the Elderly React to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. And now we’re landing somewhere in the middle with Teens React to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 trailer.
The final installment of the blockbuster young adult sci-fi franchise is coming in November, and as you can see in this video, right off the bat, these teens are extremely excited for this movie. Well, most of them are excited for it, while a couple of them just don’t seem to care and one is much more into The Maze Runner. Read More »
This fall brings the arrival in theaters of Sicario, the latest film from Enemy and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve, with a cast highlighted by Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin. The three play corners on a triangle of official and sometimes very unofficial players in the war between law agencies and Mexican drug cartels.
This new Sicario trailer has some of the same footage as the last domestic trailer, but it is a bit shorter, so it reveals less, and it is cut in a slightly more broad manner, presumably to get its ideas across to a larger audience. It is still quite good, and still makes Emily Blunt look like a total badass. Read More »
