john wick spin-off

One of the most enthralling parts of John Wick is its sleek, nearly balletic fight choreography. So it’s fitting that the John Wick spin-off could be called Ballerina.

Lionsgate is planning to develop a female-led action film titled Ballerina into a spin-off in the expanding John Wick universe, which first earned a cult following in 2014, and now has gone on to spawn a sequel, a comic book, and an upcoming television series.

Unlocked trailer 2

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

The Hitman's Bodyguard trailer 3

The buddy movie formula can encompass far more than just mismatched police officers who inevitably have to partner up with each other. Writers just need to make sure two characters who hate each other’s guts are forced to spend a lot of time in close quarters, and the latest trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard shows that there’s at least one iteration of the formula that we haven’t seen play out on the big screen quite yet. But why would a hitman need a bodyguard? Because he’s a key witness in a trial against one of the world’s worst dictators. Um, sure…I guess I can buy that. No one ever promised every instance of this formula had to make perfect sense.

Jigsaw trailer

Tobin Bell‘s twisted character Jigsaw, aka John Kramer, died in 2006’s Saw III, but his impact is still being felt ten years after the events of 2010’s now-incorrectly-named Saw: The Final Chapter. Kramer is somehow back to his old ways in Jigsaw, Lionsgate’s first sequel to the franchise in seven years, and that means more gruesome traps, more elaborate games, and the return of that sinister little tricycle-riding doll.

Check out the first Jigsaw trailer below.

Terminator 2 4K Box Set

Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been available on various home video formats for over 25 years now, but this fall it will be available for the first time in the high quality format of 4K Ultra HD, and there’s even a limited edition box set that comes with quite the cool piece of memorabilia.

While you’ll be able to pick up your average 4K Ultra HD combo pack copy of Terminator 2 (which also comes with a Blu-ray and Digital HD copy), there will be a box set that comes with a life-size prop replica of the T-800 EndoArm, and it even comes in a case that resembles the one housing the arm at Skynet in the movie.

Get details on the Terminator 2 4K box set below. Read More »

jigsaw first look

Every horror series that runs for a long time becomes fascinating by default, but the Saw series was fascinating long before it limped to a supposed finish line with 2010’s Saw: The Final Chapter. But nothing can keep a popular horror franchise dead for long and the series returns (reboots?) this year with Jigsaw, the eighth film in the long-running, critically despised, and surprisingly worthy-of-additional-study series.

A Jigsaw first look, along with plot details and comments from the film’s directors, has arrived online, so let’s take a look.

American Assassin Trailer - Dylan O'Brien

It’s been some time since we’ve seen Taylor Kitsch, mostly because he starred in a stream of bad movies that included Battleship and Savages, as well as the sorely underrated and underseen box office bomb that was John Carter. He had a bit of an uptick by being part of the ensemble cast of Lone Survivor, but now he’s playing for the bad guys in a new action thriller.

American Assassin adapts Vince Flynn’s novel of the same name, which introduces us to CIA black ops recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a recurring character in 15 of the aforementioned author’s books. Rapp is recruited by Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton) to join his team, tasked by the CIA to find the source of some recent attacks on both civilian and military targets. As we learn in a new American Assassin trailer from our friends across the pond, it turns out that the man behind these attacks is a former trainee (Kitsch) of Hurley’s, and that makes him quite the formidable opponent.

‘Hellboy’ Reboot Could Land at Lionsgate

lionsgate pick up hellboy reboot

The Hellboy reboot has a director, a star, and a title — the only thing that was missing was a studio to call home.

Now, it could have one, with Lionsgate Films reportedly in negotiations to distribute Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, which is to be directed by Neil Marshall and star Stranger Things actor David Harbour as the titular superhero.

My Little Pony movie trailer

While some people are excited about the prospect of seeing the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC Extended Universe brought to the big screen, there are those who might be even more excited by the prospect of seeing some adorable, colorful, friendly little equines finally make their way to movie theaters.

That’s right, My Little Pony: The Movie is coming to theaters this fall, and it’s bringing the magic of friendship and an attitude so sweet that it looks like you’ll have a mouthful of cavities when all is said and done. Watch the My Little Pony movie trailer below and try not to pass out from how saccharine it all is. Read More »

Power Rangers Honest Trailer

Lionsgate made their attempt at bringing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back to the big screen earlier this year, and now that the movie is available on home video, Screen Junkies has taken some cracks at the teenage superhero team with a new Honest Trailer.

Power Rangers took quite the serious approach to the goofy TV series that was imported from Japan and adapted for American audiences in the 1990s, and Honest Trailers wastes no time pointing out how this movie spends 90 minutes on having the titular heroes bond and train, only to conclude with a 30-minute big budget version of the TV series. Should we really be surprised though?
