Not liking Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a crime punishable by sneers and glares. The infinitely charismatic movie star is one of the most watchable men in modern cinema. Even when he boards a stinker (and he’s made his fair share of awful movies), he walks away smelling like roses. He’s unsinkable, a buoyant pile of muscle and enthusiasm powered by lots and lots of cod.
So if there’s anyone who can get us interested in a film version of the Rampage video game series, it’s Johnson, who announced the film’s new screenwriters on his Instagram page. As a bonus, he also revealed the schedule for his next year, which seriously, no joke, sounds like it would kill any other human being.

Comedy fans mourned when Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele decided to end their Comedy Central series Key & Peele (pictured above) after five razor-sharp seasons. But in the duo’s defense, they had a pretty good reason for doing so: they wanted to move on to other things. Like Keanu, an upcoming comedy which reunites Key and Peele so they can dish out more satirical social commentary.
Look, we’re not saying Keanu is a feature-length version of a Key & Peele sketch, or that it makes up for the fact that we’ll never get a Key & Peele season 6. But it might be close enough. Get your Keanu first look after the jump. Read More »

Tommy Wiseau‘s infamous cult favorite The Room features a no-name cast of first-time actors, starting with Tommy Wiseau himself — the director / writer / producer cast also himself as the lead, despite a total lack of professional experience on every single one of those fronts. James Franco‘s making-of movie about The Room, on the other hand, is turning out to be quite the star-studded affair.
The latest notable name to sign on for The Disaster Artist is Sharon Stone, who’ll star alongside Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and many more in the film. Find out who she’s playing after the jump. Read More »
Teaming up Kevin Hart with Ice Cube in Ride Along worked for some people, and the movie was enough of a box office hit to warrant a sequel next year. Personally, it just wasn’t what I was looking for as far as quality comedy writing goes. However, as someone who isn’t really a fan of Hart’s comedy, the first trailer for Central Intelligence, teaming him up with Dwayne Johnson, actually looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Watch!

Collateral Beauty must be a really good script, because it keeps attracting some major talent. The studio drama was originally going to star Hugh Jackman (Pan) and Rooney Mara (also Pan), before they had to drop out. It was rumored Johnny Depp was circling the lead, but ultimately the role went to Will Smith. Then New Line Cinema lost its exciting director, but a replacement has now been found. Director David Frankel may take over the project.

Annabelle was a pretty solid little horror movie whose greatest sin was being a spin-off of the far superior The Conjuring. It was also a massive hit, grossing $256 million worldwide against a budget of only $6.5 million. The fact that we’re getting news of a sequel now and not a year ago is shocking. The horror genre, after all, is no stranger to franchises that move at the speed of light and milk the goodwill of fans the world over. So congratulations on not being that, Annabelle 2.
For everything we know so far about the next adventure of that demonic doll, hit the jump.

It seems like Nicolas Cage doesn’t turn down anything nowadays. From Left Behind to Season of the Witch, the last five years haven’t been full of Cage’s best decisions.

In a recent interview, Cage revealed that he was offered a lead role in Lord of the Rings, but he ended up turning it down. So which Nicolas Cage Lord of the Rings pairing almost happened? Read More »
