Last year, Maleficent gave us the untold story of one of Disney’s most iconic villains. This year, Descendants offers the untold story of Maleficent’s bratty teenage daughter Mal — as well as the kids of Jafar, the Evil Queen, and Cruella de Vil.
In the Disney Channel original movie, Mal (Dove Cameron), Jafar’s son Jay (Booboo Stewart), Cruella de Vil’s son Carlos (Cameron Boyce), and the Evil Queen’s daughter Evie (Sofia Carson) are sent to prep school to mingle with the children of other, less villainous Disney characters. Watch the Disney Descendants trailer after the jump.

Before we go any further, it looks like the next Wolverine solo movie, the sequel to The Wolverine, may just be called Wolverine. Or that’s how one trade is referring to it for now; the title may change. Along with that little nugget, a new screenwriter for the film has been revealed, as Michael Green (Blade Runner 2, Green Lantern) is writing the script in collaboration with director James Mangold.

Why does the Suicide Squad joker have his own dialogue tattooed on his body? For weeks we’ve seen director David Ayer and actor Jared Leto teasing the gradual transformation into the clown prince of crime.

Talking in details about Ex Machina is difficult without spoiling some of the film’s biggest reveals. Writer/director Alex Garland has crafted a fascinating sci-fi thriller and, in speaking with both he and star Oscar Isaac, we had to talk about some of the bigger questions the raised by the end of the film.
On the topic of one particular question, the actor and director had opposite ideas about how things would have played out. In discussing some of the facets of the ending, Isaac offers interesting insight in what the film pretends to be, what it actually is, and what the characters are thinking. Below, read the director and actor talk about the Ex Machina ending. And, of course, major spoiler warning. Read More »
The solo show must be both one of the most appealing and among the most frightening prospects for an actor. David Oyelowo gets a chance to totally own the screen in HBO’s Nightingale, in which the actor plays a war veteran whose psyche is falling apart. That’s all I need to know, as Oyelowo is a powerful actor, and I would be happy to see his take on just about any role. Put him in a project like this, where it’s all on his shoulders, and the results might be spectacular.
The first Nightingale trailer only gives us a hint of where the film will go, but it’s enough to get across the sense that it’s going to be an emotional journey. Check it out below. Read More »

I just got home from Las Vegas, where for the last week I had attended the CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest), the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors each year.
Thursday afternoon we saw a presentation from Universal Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Jurassic World, Everest, Crimson Peak and The Secret Life of Pets and more. In previous years Universal has come to CinemaCon with a ton of footage from their line-up up to a year and a half in advance, this year’s presentation in comparison was disappointing. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free Universal Pictures CinemaCon reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Jackson is the taskmaster who wants her back; Sophie Turner is the rival; and Jessica Alba is the enemy agent who provokes everyone into a frenzy. Check out the new Barely Lethal trailer below.

I just got home from Las Vegas, where for the last week I had attended the CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest), the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors each year. The convention is packed with talks about subjects such as how to maximize profits, and features a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond. Companies even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
Thursday morning we saw a presentation from 20th Century Fox showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Peanuts, Poltergeist, Paper Towns, Hitman: Agent 47, Victor Frankenstein, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Fantastic 4, The Martian, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant and David O Russell’s Joy and more.
