Keanu Reeves is about to put on a sharp suit once again for the sequel to 2014 the sleeper success John Wick, in which Reeves played a back-from-retirement assassin on a mission of personal vengeance.
Chad Stahelski is back to direct and presumably oversee the film’s action scenes — a big part of the popularity of John Wick in the first place was the great action and stunt work put together by Leitch and Stahelski, who spent much of their career in the stunt realm.
[Update: While we originally reported that David Leitch would co-direct with Stahelski, following the way in which the two made the first film, Collider now reports that Stahelski will direct John Wick 2 solo. Leitch will be credited as an exec producer.]
Now it looks like the John Wick 2 shoot date is set for this fall, as announced by production company Thunder Road. Read More »
Of any film in current release right now, the one that seems least likely to get a sequel is Denis Villeneuve‘s drug war thriller Sicario. But that sequel is exactly the one that is supposedly in development right now.
Since most of you haven’t seen Sicario yet — it opened in just six theaters this past weekend and will expand over the next couple weeks — we’ll keep any specifics until after the break.

This week brought Furious 7 out on Blu-Ray and DVD, along with an Honest Trailer skewering the blockbuster sequel from earlier this summer. And if you’re anxious to see Vin Diesel back in action, you have just over a month to wait
The Last Witch Hunter takes Vin Diesel and puts him in the middle of a fantasy nightmare as an immortal warrior tasked with keeping the world safe from a race of evil witches. And now the Queen Witch who cursed him centuries ago has been resurrected, and all hell is about to break loose.
A new The Last Witch Hunter trailer teases an awakening, but not the one that you’re more excited for this holiday season. And it does come with a slow cover of The Rolling Stones classic “Paint It Black,” for those keeping track of recent trailer cliches. Read More »
Film can be at the forefront of social movements with stories reflecting the changes and progress in society . This year is no different with the transgender drama About Ray starring Elle Fanning (which The Weinstein Company abruptly delayed this week) and the recently debuted gay rights drama Freeheld starring Julianne Moore and Ellen Page.
Based on the documentary of the same name, the drama follows a New Jersey couple, Laurel and Stacie (Moore and Page) who are forced to fight for their legal rights. Laurel is diagnosed with cancer and has to battle county officials in order to make sure her pension will end up in the hands of her partner Stacie.
Hot on the heels of a debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, a new Freeheld trailer has arrived, driven by a new ballad by chart-topping singer Miley Cyrus. Read More »

A new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 trailer puts the focus back on the Everdeen sisters, celebrating their moments together throughout the franchise. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

The Divergent Series did a very typical thing when it decided to split the last book Allegiant into two movies, following the precedent set by Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games. But now it’s taking a cue from its feisty heroine and bucking convention.
Rather than simply attaching “Part 1″ and “Part 2″ to the final two films — again, like Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games — it’s renaming them. Find out the new Divergent Series titles, and see the first logo treatments and taglines, after the jump. Read More »
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 »
