Power Rangers TV Spots

Lionsgate had big plans for the Power Rangers series. In the lead-up to the first film’s release, CEO Jon Feltheimer teased four (or five or six) sequels. The message was clear: they were on board for the long run and the glossy revival of the nostalgic favorite would be one of their next big franchises. After all, something has to fill that Hunger Games-shaped hole in their line-up.

And while Power Rangers got off to a strong start at the domestic box office, it never really took off in the way Lionsgate wanted. Now, it’s starting to look like international numbers will seal the fate of Power Rangers 2 (and Power Rangers 3 and Power Rangers 4 and…).

Kill Switch Dan Stevens

Cinephiles and Downton Abbey fans already knew Dan Stevens‘ name before this year, but the 34-year-old actor has become downright inescapable in recent months, with roles in Beauty and the Beast, the FX series Legion, and Nacho Vigalondo’s indie film Colossal.

But it looks like his hot streak might hit a bit of a speed bump with Kill Switch, a futuristic new sci-fi thriller that’s based on a short film that went viral a few years ago. Check out the Kill Switch trailer below.

La La Land Opening Sequence

La La Land is now available on home video for you to watch over and over again if you like being lifted up with “Another Day of Sun” and then having your heart torn out by the final, romantic but tragic musical sequence. But today, we’re going to stick with the brighter side of La La Land with an extensive breakdown of the lively, bright, upbeat opening musical number that takes place on a real Los Angeles highway.

Choreographer Mandy Moore (no, not the star of Tangled) participated in a detailed, close look at the “Another Day of Sun” musical sequence, talking about what went on behind the scenes, providing insight from what director Damien Chazelle was trying to achieve, and even telling where there are some hidden cuts. Watch the La La Land opening sequence breakdown after the jump. Read More »

La La Land Honest Trailer

La La Land became the most Oscar nominated film of all time this year, but it made an even bigger splash at the Academy Awards when it was mistakenly given the award for Best Picture when it should have gone to Moonlight. That’s something that the folks at Screen Junkies didn’t forget when they put together the Honest Trailer for the musical sensation, which takes an interesting twist about three-fourths of the way through and doesn’t waste any time leaning into Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling’s characters for apparently not knowing how to compromise.

Absolutely Anything

When legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams died in 2014, he left behind a wonderful legacy of entertainment for fans to remember him by. In addition to classic films like Dead Poets’ Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Hook (don’t @ me), and Good Will Hunting, the fast-talking funnyman also had a handful of movies that were still unreleased at the time of his death.

Most of those films have since made it to theaters except for one: a 2015 Simon Pegg comedy called Absolutely Anything in which Williams provides the voice of a dog, which was never available in the United States. Thanks to Atlas Distribution Co., Absolutely Anything is finally coming to U.S. theaters later this month.

La La Land Prints

Today brings the Best Picture nominee (and mistaken winner) La La Land to Blu-ray and DVD for audiences to watch over and over again. Personally, I know that I’m excited to watch that uplifting opening musical number, even if it means getting my heart broken at the end of the movie. In addition to bringing La La Land into your home, there’s another item that you can purchase to show your love for the classic-style musical.

Hero Complex Gallery has release three gorgeous La La Land prints, two by Stan & Vince and one by Patrick Connan, each paying tribute to the movie starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Check out out after the jump along with details of where and when to get them. Read More »

the hitman's bodyguard trailer

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are going to try their hand at reviving the buddy comedy — this time with plenty of the latter’s trademark expletives.

The trailer for their new movie The Hitman’s Bodyguard is less a send-up of the legendary Whitney Houston/Kevin Costner Bodyguard romance (though the movie’s famous theme song I Will Always Love You hilariously plays throughout the trailer) and more an attempt to recapture the magic of ’80s action movie bromances à la Lethal Weapon. And with Reynolds and Jackson both cursing up a storm, it may just work.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Leaving The Expendables

The Expendables franchise is in even more trouble following Sylvester Stallone‘s disappointing departure from the action film series last week.

Much of the passion for this throwback action franchise comes from star and producer Sylvester Stallone, who rounded up a combination of his old action movie friends and some of the newer meatheads on the block for an assembly of mercenaries who shoot big guns, create big explosions and always take down the bad guy. Now that he’s gone, some of the franchise’s key players don’t have much of interest in returning, like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Read More »

shia labeouf movie man down sells one ticket

Man Down, indeed.

Shia LaBeouf‘s post-apocalyptic war thriller may have opened in the United States last year to negative reviews and an anemic $454,490 but that’s much better than the mere £7 that Man Down made in the United Kingdom on its opening weekend. That’s the equivalent one movie ticket.

power rangers review

After an impressive opening weekend for a 25-year-old franchise, a sequel to Power Rangers seems inevitable. But here’s the big question: what’s going to happen in it?

The new film is essentially a reboot of the series and Saban is confident enough to have envisioned doing five or six or seven more movies. Fortunately, they have more than enough material to mine for story possibilities. For those of you that aren’t aware, there are 831 episodes in the series so far, almost 18 straight days of ridiculous giant robot-morphin’ action to enjoy. What will they look to for Power Rangers 2? Let’s take a look at some options. Naturally, all film and series spoilers are on the table.
