the commuter trailer

You don’t know the train commute from hell until you’ve been blackmailed into identifying a hidden passenger who is being targeted by an elaborate criminal conspiracy. So, thank goodness that it’s Liam Neeson at the center of The Commuter trailer, and not you. Because you can always count on Liam Neeson to do what he does best, while you would likely send a strongly worded tweet at the MTA.

Flight of the Navigator reboot

Hollywood has been trying to remake the 1986 sci-fi movie Flight of the Navigator since 2009, and Disney even tasked Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow with writing and directing it at one point a few years ago. Trevorrow told us why that project fell apart – it boils down to shifting priorities at Disney, since they now have bigger fish to fry with Marvel and Star Wars movies – and now the rights have been scooped up by Lionsgate and The Henson Company, who have set the showrunner of Lucifer to write a new screenplay.

Lionsgate is teaming with Parques Reunidos to bring a Lionsgate-branded indoor entertainment center to New York City’s Times Square in 2019. Lionsgate Entertainment City will feature 13 different attractions aimed at teens and young adults.

Among the offerings featured, there will be:

  • Mad Men themed “dining and lounge experience.”
  • a Hunger Games flying simulator attraction
  • a Divergent-themed obstacle course
  • John Wick: Chapter Two shooting ride where fans will fire fake guns at a series of assailants
  • a 4D film and live theater (which I’m assuming could be easily switched out with new content)
  • a Lionsgate Café
  • a Hunger Games-inspired Peeta’s Bakery and The Capitol Confectionery
  • the first-ever Lionsgate Studio Store
  • and virtual reality entertainment, including a Nerve VR motorcycle experience.

Find out more about Lionsgate Entertainment City, after the jump.

Gotti trailer

John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson) has been wanting to star in a movie about 1980s New York City crime boss John “The Teflon Don” Gotti since 2011, and after going through multiple iterations and spending years in development hell, the film is finally ready. Here, at long last, is the first trailer for Gotti, which ended up being directed by Kevin Connolly: yep, the guy who played “E” on HBO’s Entourage. And weirdly, this movie seems like a fake film you’d see in the background of an Entourage episode.

cook off trailer

It’s the heyday of TV series like Chopped and The Great British Bake Off, so it seems like there’s no better time for a mockumentary film about the lives of quirky small-town cooking competitors.

Ironically, Melissa McCarthy‘s comedy Cook Off! is a movie that has been long in the development oven, originally made a decade ago before being shelved in 2007. Now Lionsgate has picked up the film and re-edited it for 2017 consumption. Hopefully the jokes haven’t expired by now.

hellboy reboot first look

Update: Lionsgate has informed us that the widely reported 2019 release date is not correct. We will update this article when new information is available.

***

While fans have been grumbling about the new Hellboy reboot and how director Guillermo del Toro never got to finish his trilogy, let’s be honest. We’ve all been at least a little bit curious about what an R-rated Hellboy movie directed by Neil Marshall and starring Stranger ThingsDavid Harbour as the red-skinned paranormal investigator would look like.

Now, thanks to a first look image of Harbour in character, we know. It looks like Hellboy.

The Commuter trailer

After a brief sojourn with Blake Lively, a giant shark, and a humorously-named seagull in last year’s The Shallows, Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra has returned to his one true muse, Liam Neeson, for his newest film. The new trailer for The Commuter has pulled into the station, and this looks like a vintage Colleta-Serra/Neeson joint: a guy gets into a dangerous situation on a high-speed passenger transport vehicle, and the clock ticks down as he has to figure out how to handle it. Explosions and out-of-control antics ensue.

In other words: hell yes, I’m going to see The Commuter when it comes out next year.
