It’s been almost 14 years since we last saw Austin Powers on the big screen. The third installment in the series, Austin Powers in Goldmember, was a massive hit. Director Jay Roach‘s sequel made over $300M worldwide at the box-office, which is three times more than what the first film made.
There have been talks of another Austin Powers sequel for around a decade now. Roach–whose latest film, All the Way, premiered last night on HBO–confirmed he’s still discussing an Austin Powers 4 with Myers. Below, read what the director had to say about the Austin Powers sequel.

Following up the disastrous experience of making Alien 3, director David Fincher made the uncompromising and unforgettable thriller, Se7en. Instead of directing a butchered version of Andrew Kevin Walker‘s hot spec script, Fincher and the film’s stars, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, fought to preserve one of the script’s most defining scenes–the ending. Fincher was initially sent an old draft of the script, which included the original ending before it was rewritten. After being informed he received the wrong draft, the director said he’d only make it if they used the original script. And thank God he made that decision, because if he hadn’t made Se7en, perhaps we would’ve gotten the watered down version of Detective Somerset’s (Freeman) grueling story. Worst of all, the filmmaker never would’ve won his MTV movie award.
The original Se7en poster with two floating heads is fine, but the custom Se7en poster featured below, inspired by the artist/fan’s theory, does the great thriller justice.

Most of the time, the deleted scenes that end up on the cutting room floor of any given movie don’t bring anything substantial to the movie, hence why the scene was cut to begin with. However, in the case of a sparsely seen deleted scene from the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, some new information is revealed that changes the game a little bit.
In an extended version of the scene where Nancy Thompson learns how her mother Marge and some of the other parents took matters into their own hands by killing Freddy Krueger, even more information would have been revealed that makes the nightmare stalker’s recent killing streak more personal than random.

Plenty of classic TV shows have been given the big screen treatment. The Brady Bunch got a pair of spoof-esque movies, while The Addams Family got a couple movies that were a little more earnest and charming. Plus The A-Team and 21 Jump Street got two very different big screen updates, just to name a couple more. Now one more classic comedy series wants a crack at movie theaters.
New Line is currently in talks to pick up the rights to the comedy series Three’s Company, which starred John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers. Find out more about the potential for a Three’s Company movie after the jump. Read More »
Earlier today we saw the trailer for the Adam DeVine and Zac Efron summer comedy, Mike and David Need Wedding Dates. The trailer fell a bit flat, which is a shame, considering the actors involved, and the fact that it’s DeVine’s first starring role in a big summer comedy. The Workaholics star has appeared in some fun supporting roles over the years, but Mike and David Need Wedding Dates could potentially lead to him starring in more comedies.
Any fan of DeVine’s should be happy to learn that he’s already lined up another starring role for himself. The actor will reunite with The Final Girls director, Todd Strauss-Schulson, for Paternity Leave. Learn more about the project below.

After delivering a dose of horror for the summer back in 2013 with The Conjuring, director James Wan is back with the sequel, and if the new trailer is any indicator, this looks like one of the most intense hauntings that the genre has ever seen.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are back as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, and this time they’re going across the pond to check out what many have referred to as England’s Amityville, where a single mother and her children are being terrified over and over again by dark forces. It’s like The Exorcist on steroids.

As one of the people who unapologetically enjoyed 2014’s Annabelle, I welcomed the news of a sequel with open arms. The original film is stylish, spooky, and yes, occasionally silly. It was a ton of fun and I stand by that assessment, Rotten Tomatoes score be damned! Yesterday, Warner Bros. announced that Annabelle 2 will hit theaters on May 19, 2017 and today, it’s been revealed that director David F. Sandberg has been recruited to helm the sequel.

We don’t typically write about movie swag on /Film, although I’ll often tweet about some of the cooler things that get sent to the /Film offices to promote upcoming films and television shows. Today I received a package from Warner Bros. Pictures with swag promoting their upcoming film Keanu, a comedy film movie from Key and Peele. If you haven’t yet watched the trailer for this film, go do so now.
When I opened the box I knew I had to feature it on the site. The box contained a plush of the cat at the center of the film, Keanu, complete with his do-rag and gold chain. But thats not all, Warner Bros. produced a full-size calendar featuring Keanu reenacting scenes from popular movies. That’s the part I really wanted to show you as it’s ridiculous, cute and awesome. Before the Oscars they released a set of movie posters spoofing this year’s Academy Award nominees. This takes it further because they’ve gone to the lengths of elaborate photo shoots, rather than fast and dirty Photoshops. Hit the jump to take a look at some of the Keanu movie parodies featured in this Keanu calendar.

The 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street was a disappointment for most Freddy Krueger fans. Even though the Platinum Dunes film made $32.9 million its opening weekend — which gave rise to discussions regarding a 3D sequel — it never led to another installment starring Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen). In fact, we recently heard about another A Nightmare on Elm Street remake in the works.
But before acclaimed music video director Samuel Bayer signed up for the 2010 picture, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside) came close to directing the project, which they envisioned as “a twisted version of The Goonies.”
