Next week brings the release of Adam Sandler‘s latest original movie coming exclusively to Netflix. The film is called Sandy Wexler, and it takes place all the way back in 1994, starring Adam Sandler himself as a goober of a talent agent with a roster of peculiar clients who are from from making it big. But Sandy Wexler’s life changes when he stumbles upon a new face, and more importantly, a new voice.
Sandy Wexler also stars Jennifer Hudson as Courtney Clarke, an aspiring singer who the titular agents takes under his wing and somehow ends up having a fledgling career despite having a complete buffoon for representation. The Netflix original movie is really going for the music side of the movie with at least one original song being produced for the film, and an official Sandy Wexler music video introduces us to the catchy tune. Unfortunately, it’s accompanied by footage from the movie too. Read More »

Anne of Green Gables was a literary staple of many a girl’s childhood (including mine) and received the pitch-perfect adaptation in the form of the 1985 Canadian two-part miniseries starring Megan Follows as Anne With An “E” Shirley. So it’s hard to imagine that Anne, the Netflix series adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel, will live up to that legacy.
But with the new Anne, played by wide-eyed newcomer Amybeth McNulty, spunkily declaring, “Girls can do anything a boy can do – and more!” in the recently released trailer, it’s clear that the Netflix re-imagining will bring the beloved Canadian orphan into the modern age. Hit the jump to watch the Netflix Anne trailer.

After the fourth Avengers film, Chris Evans‘ contract with Marvel is done. Whether it’ll be the last we see of the actor as Captain America, we’ll have to wait and see.

While promoting his new film, Marc Webb’s Gifted, Evans talked about having to one day say goodbye to playing Steve Rogers. Below, check out his most recent comments on walking away at some point.

The Expendables franchise is in even more trouble following Sylvester Stallone‘s disappointing departure from the action film series last week.
Much of the passion for this throwback action franchise comes from star and producer Sylvester Stallone, who rounded up a combination of his old action movie friends and some of the newer meatheads on the block for an assembly of mercenaries who shoot big guns, create big explosions and always take down the bad guy. Now that he’s gone, some of the franchise’s key players don’t have much of interest in returning, like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Read More »
There are three huge monsters running amok across North America in Rampage. God help the one that tries to mess with Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead), who along with star Dwayne Johnson, we wouldn’t mind seeing go a few rounds, hand-to-hand, with a giant wolf or giant lizard. That dream may come true because Morgan has just been cast in Brad Peyton‘s (San Andreas) video game adaption.
Below, learn more about the Jeffrey Dean Morgan Rampage casting news.

Last week brought CinemaCon to Las Vegas where studios unfurled some of their most exciting projects to movie theater exhibitors, so they know what to expect from the blockbuster offerings coming to theaters over the next couple years. Tons of new trailers were screened that haven’t been released yet, and there were even showings of both Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Fate of the Furious. But Michael Bay and IMAX brought their own kind of hype to CinemaCon.
This summer, Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters, and it’s the only blockbuster that was shot natively in IMAX 3D. A new featurette has Michael Bay explaining just why he chose to shoot in this format while also hyping up the movie with shots of what the director does best: blow shit up. Plus, there’s some new footage from the film that we haven’t seen yet.

The first Transformers film came out ten years ago, and ever since, director Michael Bay has been threatening to walk away from the franchise. It’s a tale as old as time: boy meets intellectual property, a boy blows stuff up in a movie based on said intellectual property, boy gets huffy about returning for the sequel, the studio offers boy money, boy caves and directs sequel. Rinse, wash, repeat.
Now he’s at it again. After hinting that the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight would be his final time behind the camera in this series, Bay says he wants to direct one of the 14 Transformers spin-offs that are currently in development. So let’s run through the greatest hits of Bay’s love/hate relationship with these movies, and then speculate about what a Michael Bay Transformers spinoff could be.
