Whether you like it or not, the release of the new Power Rangers movie is getting closer. We’re still waiting to get a teaser trailer for the adaptation of the imported live-action series that made waves in the 1990s and has seen over 20 different iterations since then, and now we have word that the first footage from the movie will debut at New York Comic-Con on Saturday, October 8th.

To ramp up the excitement leading up to the footage debut, a new batch of Power Rangers teaser posters have arrived, giving us a glimpse of each of the Zords, the colossal assault vehicles that can be called upon and piloted by each of the warriors. Check them out below. Read More »

john wick chapter 2 poster

Here’s my John Wick story. I attended an early morning Fantastic Fest press screening of Chad Stahelski and David Leitch convinced that I was about to watch a B-movie that was one hair away from going straight to DVD. When the credits rolled, I was fairly sure that I had just watched one of the best action movies in years and the rare movie to fully understand how to fully utilize the very specific weapon that is Keanu Reeves. Embargoed, I spent the rest of the day waiting for the film to premiere before an audience of real people, concerned that I was too tired to know what I was watching and that I was wrong about John Wick. Two years later, I’ve watched it at least a dozen times. It’s near-perfect cinematic comfort food. 

And oh yeah, a new poster for John Wick: Chapter 2 has arrived, and I’m not even going to try to contain my excitement for what is easily one of my most anticipated movies of 2017.

The Whole Truth trailer

Keanu Reeves has been killing it lately in a variety of offbeat projects, from John Wick to The Neon Demon. He even acquitted himself quite nicely in The Bad Batch, which is more than we can say for either of that film’s actual leads. Now this fall he’ll return to more straightforwardly dramatic fare with The Whole Truth, the new legal thriller from Frozen River director Courtney Hunt.

Written by Nicholas Kazan, The Whole Truth centers on a shocking murder trial. A teenage boy (Gabriel Basso) has been charged with murdering his father (Jim Belushi), and his mother (Renée Zellweger) hires defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Reeves) to defend her. The case seems straightforward at first. The boy has confessed to the crime, and all physical evidence seems to back him up. But as the trial moves forward, Richard’s colleague (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) begins to suspect that not all is as it appears. Watch The Whole Truth trailer below.  Read More »

valerian composer

Feel free to insert your own conspiracy theory here: just days after Michael Giacchino replaced Alexandre Desplat as the composer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the latter has gone and attached himself to another science fiction movie. Director Luc Besson has revealed that Desplat, who won an Academy Award for his work on The Grand Budapest Hotel, will provide the score for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Learn more about the Valerian composer after the jump.

Blair Witch Sequel

The first sequel to The Blair Witch Project arrived only 15 months after the release of the original movie. The second sequel took another 16 years to manifest, arriving in theaters just three days ago. While the franchise lay dormant for over a decade, it turns out that there were attempts to revive it in the years between Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 and Blair Witch, one of which was a prequel pitched by the same team that made the original movie.

blair witch interview

Director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett have become two of the most exciting new voices in horror over the past five years with films like A Horrible Way to Die, You’re Next, and The Guest (as well as memorable segments in both VHS movies and The ABCs of Death). Now, the duo have decided to enter someone else’s playground with Blair Witch, a sequel to the 1999 classic The Blair Witch Project.

Blair Witch is a very different film than the original movie, replacing the slow-burn psychological terror of the first film with visceral scares and a relentless pace. It is very much its own beast, the result of Wingard and Barrett setting out to make a movie on their own terms, the sequel to the original that they always wanted to see.

With Blair Witch in theaters today, I sat down with the duo to discuss how you keep found footage horror fresh, what attracted them to this project, and the glory that is drone cameras.

blair witch publicity stunt

Seventeen years after it first hit theaters, The Blair Witch Project remains a genuinely creepy, intentionally frustrating, and unforgettable film that sets a high bar for found footage horror movie in general. However, the film’s legacy extends beyond movie screens and into the world of movie marketing, where it had a seismic impact. The film’s advertising campaign used the early days of the internet to its advantage, building an extensive and convincing mythology that could look, at a quick glance, like the real thing. The result was a horror movie that many people thought was a documentary depicting actual events. The seeds of all viral marketing, of how movies are sold on the internet, were planted there.

But 2016 audiences are more savvy. They have noses that have been more fine-tuned for bullshit. What worked in 1999 simply won’t work today – no one would ever believe that the new sequel, simply titled Blair Witch, was a depiction of reality. So how do you keep the Blair Witch legacy of outrageous publicity stunts alive? Simple: you hang a couple hundred of those creepy stick figures all over South Congress street in Austin, Texas to make it look like the city was visited by the witch herself.

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life trailer

Based on the James Patterson‘s popular young adult novel, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life comes from director Steve Carr. Carr is the director behind Next FridayDr. Doolittle 2Daddy Day CareAre We Done Yet?, and, his last feature, 2009’s Paul Blart: Mall Cop. He’s directed many harmless kids movies, which is probably the best way also to describe how his upcoming film looks.
