Sheridan says he’s exploring similar ideas and themes, except on a larger scale.

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.

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 »
This past spring, the bonkers teaser trailer debuted for Tyler Perry‘s return as the goofy old woman Madea. This time, we get another holiday themed outing in the form of Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. The teaser trailer had Madea armed to the teeth and preparing to defend her house against some impending All Hallow’s Eve threats.
Believe it or not, the film that owes its inception to a joke from Chris Rock’s fantastic Top Five is still coming to theaters this Halloween, and now a teaser poster parodies one of the most iconic horror flicks that is played over and over again throughout the month of October. If you hold John Carpenter’s Halloween as something sacred, you may want to sit down before you see the Madea Halloween poster after the jump. Read More »
The previous installment in the Saw franchise was titled “The Final Chapter.” Even at the time, it was hard to believe the violent moneymaking series was completely over with, and time has proven that belief correct. Earlier this year, it was reported Lionsgate was developing Saw: Legacy. The studio hired Piranha 3D and Piranha 3DD screenwriters Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to reignite the franchise, which James Wan kicked off in 2004 with his thriller. Now, the sequel has attracted two very promising filmmakers: Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination).
Below, learn more about the Saw sequel.

If you thought Liam Neeson got upset when some criminals kidnapped Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen and then himself in the Taken franchise, just wait until you see how pissed Mel Gibson gets when some drug cartel thugs come after his daughter.
Blood Father premiered at the Cannes Film Festival back in May, and it’s coming to theaters late this summer, giving Mel Gibson another chance at redemption on the big screen after previous efforts landed without much pomp and circumstance. This almost feels like if Riggs from Lethal Weapon had a daughter, lost Rene Russo and really just let life kick him in the teeth.

I wasn’t a fan of the Power Rangers television series when it aired — maybe I was a year or two too old for it, or maybe I was already over my Voltron days. Whatever the case, I haven’t found excitement for the upcoming Power Rangers movie. And then last month Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston signed on to the film as Zordon, a character that appeared as a giant floating head in a tube in the TV series. I thought, that’s interesting. And then a teaser poster for the film was released (you can see it right after the jump), which was not what I expected from this particular franchise. Okay, so maybe I am a little curious now to see what the Power Rangers movie will be.
And now we have Bryan Cranston talking about how the movie is wildly different from the 1990s television series, comparing more to a Dark Knight-style reimagining of the franchise.

Plenty of banks have been robbed in the Western genre, but there aren’t many contemporary thrillers that use the premise nowadays. The last captivating modern Western that centered on a robbery was probably Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, and even then it was only a small part of a larger character story. But Hell or High Water has Chris Pine and Ben Foster stopping at nothing to get what they think is rightfully owed to them by the banks. However, Jeff Bridges isn’t letting them get away with it.
