In one sense, we’ve been waiting for a new Blair Witch Project sequel for over a decade. The original film came out 17 years ago, and the much-reviled sequel was released 16 years ago. But really, we’ve only known we were waiting for the past few weeks. It wasn’t until last month we even realized another Blair Witch Project movie was happening, when Lionsgate revealed at Comic-Con that Adam Wingard‘s The Woods was actually titled Blair Witch.
Now we’ve only got a few more weeks to wait until the movie’s actual release, which means it’s time for Lionsgate to kick their marketing campaign up to the next level. The first Blair Witch TV spot has been revealed, and you can watch it after the jump. Read More »

After debuting at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the faux documentary Operation Avalanche will be coming to theaters this fall. And for conspiracy theorists who think the moon landing was faked by the government, this could just be more fuel to the fire.
Operation Avalanche is a period found footage film following a pair of young CIA agents (Matt Johnson and Owen Williams) who initially go undercover at NASA to expose a Russian mole. But while posing as a documentary crew, they actually learn that there’s no way NASA is going to win the race to the moon. So they have an idea, and you already know what it is.
Watch the Operation Avalanche trailer after the jump. Read More »

Shailene Woodley‘s Tris has overcome a lot over the past three Divergent movies, but not even she can overcome audience indifference. Following a weak performance for The Divergent Series: Allegiant this spring, Lionsgate has opted to skip theaters for the planned finale, The Divergent Series: Ascendant. Instead, the dystopian YA saga will conclude with a TV movie that will then launch a standalone spinoff TV series. Read More »

I’ve gone on the record before about my personal history with Power Rangers: I was young enough when its earliest incarnation arrived in that I watched and enjoyed it for a brief period of time. I bear no love for it now, but I also bear it no ill will and have found the majority of the fans I have encountered online to be friendly, reasonable, and frequently self-aware in their love for this incredibly goofy series. It’s easy to be snarky about director Dean Israelite‘s new Power Rangers movie that is set to open next year, but this is a case where I’m trying to keep by chin up and my mind open despite certain fibers of being demanding to release the sarcasm engine.
I open with this because a new Power Rangers photo has has arrived in the pre-Comic-Con wave of news and the best I can muster is a simple oof. These costumes may look amazing on film. In motion, they make be exactly what Power Rangers fans are looking for. But as an agnostic observer (who didn’t hate the initial reveal) looking in from the outside…oof.

October is the prime month for horror movies, and this year we’ll be getting terror on a number of different levels thanks to Tyler Perry. The writer, director, producer and actor is getting back in drag for Boo! A Madea Halloween, a horror comedy that puts the sassy old woman in the middle of some horror movie shenanigans.
This time Madea is commissioned by a family friend (also played by Tyler Perry) to keep an eye on the house and his daughter while he goes out of town to make sure she doesn’t go to a huge Halloween party happening nearby. But in addition to keeping an eye on this young girl, Madea also has to contend with creepy clowns, zombies and apparently even Jigsaw from the Saw franchise. Get a taste of the shenanigans in the Boo! A Madea Halloween trailer below. Read More »
