Wish Upon Trailer

The cautionary advice of “be careful what you wish for” has been the center of endless tales of horror. Every now and then, it gets a rather literal depiction, which is exactly what Wish Upon looks to be bringing to the table this summer.

Joey King stars in the horror thriller about a bullied teenage girl named Clare who is given an ornate music box that somehow grants her seven wishes. A new trailer shows us what happens when she wishes that the girl responsible for making her life a living hell in high school would “just go rot,” but we already saw that in the original trailer. What’s new is a bit of background on the box which shows that it has quite the history of ruining the lives of those who had it in their possession.

the fate of the furious clip

My favorite thing about the Fast and Furious series at this point is not how insane, outrageous and impossible the action sequences have become. My favorite thing about the Fast and Furious series at this point is how the characters tend to react to those insane, outrageous, and impossible action sequences – they are usually only a little perturbed and often barely react at all. This is just life, man. This is what you do between Coronas. This is what family is all about!

So as you watch this new The Fate of the Furious clip, feel free to concentrate on the nutty car chase. That’s fine. But also slow down to appreciate how Vin Diesel is treating this sequence as if it’s the most normal thing in the world. Movie magic.

Saturday Night Live Make-Up Transformation

Saturday Night Live is one of the most unique shows on television because of the fact that every new episode is created in a single week and performed live with just minutes between commercial breaks for new sketches to be set up. It’s always impressive what SNL is able to pull off live on the air.

For those who have wondered just how SNL is able to pull off some of the more technically impressive aspects of the show, some video featurettes have given us a glimpse behind the scenes of Studio 8H when the live show is going on. We’ve seen how quickly a set can be torn down from the cold open to the monologue, and now you can see what a fast-paced make-up transformation is like when Kate McKinnon has to go from playing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Shud the Mermaid.

Last December, Hollywood was hit with the tragic news that Star Wars saga actress Carrie Fisher had passed away. She had already completed filming on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but reports indicated that her character General Leia was meant to have an even bigger role in Star Wars: Episode IX. One of the options being discussed in order to fix this issue was making changes to General Leia’s role in The Last Jedi to reduce the problem of her not being in Episode IX. But that apparently won’t be necessary.

Disney CEO Bob Iger appeared today for a chat at the USC Marshall School of Business, and when conversation turned to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he brought up the passing of Carrie Fisher and how it was being handled behind the scenes.  Read More »

Zombieland 2

It’s time for the yearly checkup on Zombieland 2‘s pulse. The sequel to Ruben Fleischer‘s (30 Minutes or Less) kindhearted post-apocalyptic zombie comedy has been talked about and sometimes doubted for the last eight years now. During that time, the stock of film’s stars has risen. Emma Stone recently won an Oscar after the world went nuts for La La Land, while Woody Harrelson starred in The Hunger Games franchise and has a role in the new Han Solo film.

They’re more sought after and naturally more expensive to hire. According to the screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick behind the 2009 film and Deadpool, paying them what they’re deserved while staying reasonable is a part of the next steps on the sequel, which makes it sound a little more likely than it has before.

Below, get the latest Zombieland 2 update.

Star Wars The Force Awakens rey finn 5

The minute Disney purchased Lucasfilm back in 2012, we knew the studio planned to expand the Star Wars franchise far beyond what we’d already seen. To their credit, they moved quickly: it’s now five years later, and they’re already in production on their third Star Wars movie. Now you can go ahead and mark your calendars for 2032, because Disney CEO Bob Iger says there’s a good chance they’ll still be pumping out Star Wars films at that point. Read More »
