rob zombie 31

We can say a lot of things, both good and bad, about Rob Zombie as a director, but at least he has a voice. While many filmmakers are happy to color within the lines and deliver something approachable and easy to sell, Zombie’s particular brand of foul, brutal, throwback horror is always interesting, even when the movie is a total stinker. I’d sooner watch the feverish, fascinating, and totally awful The Lords of Salem again before I revisit many horror movies. For better and worse, his movies stand out. They’re so filthy that you can practically smell them.

And since a major component of Zombie’s aesthetic involves finding unique and special ways to portray human pain and suffering, it shouldn’t be surprising that his latest movie, 31, has been slapped with an NC-17 rating by the MPAA. And while this is a weird badge of honor for any horror filmmaker, it’s not one that you want to wear all the time – as Zombie himself is quick to point out, this rating can spell certain doom for any movie.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lupita Nyong'o The Force Awakens deleted scene

J.J. Abrams‘ films are so breathlessly paced sometimes you get the sense more than a few scenes were left on the cutting room floor. When his stories jump from A to C — which isn’t always a problem — you can feel a piece missing. There are a few instances in which this happens in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but not in the case of this deleted scene.

After the jump, Abrams explains a Star Wars: The Force Awakens deleted scene.

Power Rangers plot details

Misconduct trailer header

Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino have both been acting steadily since the 1960s, starring in some of the most iconic films of all time and winning an Oscar each along the way. But somehow, they’ve never actually shared the screen until Misconduct.

Directed by Shintaro Shimosawa (Fox’s The Following), the thriller stars the two titans as corporate rivals. Hopkins is a corrupt pharmaceutical executive, while Pacino is a senior partner at a high-profile firm. Josh Duhamel is the lawyer who gets caught in the middle, and finds himself trapped in a web of lies and intrigue. Watch the first Misconduct trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Gods of Egypt trailer

The marketing campaign for Gods of Egypt got off to a rocky start, to say the least. The first character posters were, to be frank, ugly, and the messy first trailer wasn’t much better. To top it all off, the film has already sparked criticism for its mostly white cast, prompting apologies from both director Alex Proyas and studio Lionsgate.

But it’s far too late to change anything as fundamental as the casting, or the look and feel of the entire movie, so all Gods of Egypt can do is soldier on. The latest Gods of Egypt trailer tones down the crazy a bit, but does that actually make it look better, or just more boring? Find out for yourself after the jump. Read More »

dystopian romeo & juliet

Have you ever read William Shakespeare‘s work and thought, This is good, but wouldn’t it be even better if it was a trilogy set in a dystopian future? Wait, what if it was not only set in the future, but, like, totally also about ass-kicking superhuman soldiers? That’d be pretty chill, right? If that thought has ever crossed your mind, then Lionsgate is bringing your dream to life. The studio purchased the rights to Romeo and Juliet: The War, a New York Times bestseller back in 2012.

hunger-games-4-10

Across four installments, the Hunger Games saga has made the kind of money that most movie franchises can only dream about. The first three made over $2 billion combined; the latest and last installment, Mockingjay – Part 2 has raked in $524 million so far and counting. And, well, you can probably guess where this is going.

It was only a matter of time before someone figured out a way to keep the money flowing with more movies, and now Lionsgate may have finally hit upon a solution: prequels. Specifically, prequels that involve a lot more arena action. More about the possible Hunger Games prequels after the jump.  Read More »

Exposed trailer

Keanu Reeves is a pesky detective that just won’t stop digging, asking questions nobody wants the answers to. I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear a line just like that in Reeves’ latest film, Exposed, as the trailer has its fair share of clichéd dialogue. But the familiar film does star Reeves, Ana de Armas (Knock Knock), and Christopher McDonald (The Iron Giant), a trio of actors I’d happily watch in the same movie.

After the jump, watch the Exposed trailer.
