The previously released trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockginjay – Part 2 did a little more than hint at a big spoiler for the franchise’s finale, at least for those who haven’t read the young adult franchise on which the movies are based. Thankfully, the latest Mockingjay Part 2 trailer keeps the spoilers to a minimum, and shows off plenty of the action to come in the conclusion of the blockbuster film series. Read More »

John Wick, with all of its head-shooting, puppy-avenging, Keanu-growling madness, is one of the best action movies ever made. And you know what? I’ll say it. We’re all thinking it. It’s one of the best movies ever made. Screw you, Michelangelo Antonioni! This is real art right here.
Humorous hyperbole (or is it?) aside, the official news of a sequel blew up our brains like a bullet from one of Baba Yaga’s pistols. Now that John Wick 2 plot details are really starting to trickle out, our excitement is starting to coagulate and take form. This is really happening, and you can learn the details after the jump.

Lionsgate is starting to round up the cast for their forthcoming big screen version of Power Rangers, based on the kids’ television show that has seen nearly 20 different iterations, and they’re looking to give a big break to some mostly unknown names for the five lead roles.

Like the seasonal return of locusts, Nicolas Sparks is back. It would be unfair to call Sparks movies a plague — there’s an audience for every movie — but films based on Sparks novels are certainly numerous, and now there’s one more that you can struggle to distinguish from the rest. The new film is The Choice, which features Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, and Tom Welling in the story of a romance that spans years and tries to overcome tragedy.
The Choice trailer showcases so many of the elements we’ve come to take as given in a Sparks movie: pretty young leads, a romantic triangle, golden North Carolina landscapes, and that one horrible event that changes everything. Check out the footage below. Read More »

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.
