Whovians rejoice: A BBC theme park is coming to the U.K. Attractions based on Doctor Who, Top Gear, and Sherlock are thought likely, though they haven’t yet been confirmed. A Doctor Who ride is not as novel an idea as you might think — Disney considered bringing the sci-fi property to Tomorrowland back in the ’80s.
Since the new park is backed by Paramount Pictures, it’s also expected to feature various Paramount franchises — possibly including Star Trek and Transformers. More on the planned BBC theme park after the jump. Read More »

Were you too scared to click on the red-band Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer from July? Well, a green band trailer is now here and you can finally see what’s in store for the good friends who find a time machine.
This time around, the characters played by Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry misuse their amazing toy and decide to go back into the past to fix the problems they create. They mistakenly end up in the future, though, alongside the son of the character played by John Cusack in the first film (Cusack isn’t back here), played by Adam Scott. Now they have to worry not only about the past, but the present, which is also the past in the future. Then it gets even crazier than that.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 opens February 20 and you can watch the new trailer and see the new poster below. Read More »
The list of things wrong with the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is pretty long. Way down on the list is that the film’s villains really weren’t that interesting or formidable. Well it seems new director Dave Green and screenwriters Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are looking to at least solve that in the June 2016 sequel. Producer Andrew Form recently confirmed that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will feature popular villains Bebop and Rocksteady. Read more about Ninja Turtles 2 Bebop and Rocksteady. Read More »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may have left critics cold, but that didn’t stop a lot of other people from shelling out for a ticket. Enough people did so, in fact, that Paramount dated a sequel before the first film’s opening weekend was done. And now it seems they’ve found the guy to steer that ship.
According to a new report, Earth to Echo helmer Dave Green is looking to helm Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Screenwriters Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, who penned the last movie, will write and executive produce. More about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 director after the jump. Read More »
Someone in Paramount’s marketing department, or perhaps at a poster design firm, really has a thing for fields of wheat, strong sun, and specific poses. Today we just saw the first poster for Terminator Genisys, on which Emilia Clarke, as Sarah Connor, faces away from camera, the head of a T-800 terminator in one hand. But that poster bears more than a passing similarity to the ad for another Paramount movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction. The two posters could be advertising one Terminator Transformers mash-up movie, like Terminator: Age of Extinction. Check out the comparison below. Read More »
Chris Rock is back in full force right now. His new movie, Top Five, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, opens in a couple weeks. And he also wrote an incredible essay for THR on what it’s like to be black in the Hollywood system. Read that link, then come back here to watch the Top Five red-band trailer. This edit has a lot of cursing and a great scene with Kevin Hart alluded to in the essay, but it doesn’t give away the movie’s funniest scene. (Be thankful for that, as the funniest bit is also one of the more unexpected moments.) Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Thursday brings the first trailer for Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys, a film many are hoping launches a whole new era in the Terminator franchise. Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as the iconic T-800 but all the rest of the characters – Sarah Connor, John Connor, Kyle Reese etc. – have been recast in a movie that, rumor has it, takes place in a parallel time line to the original film series.
In advance of that trailer, Paramount has releases a 15-second teaser for the trailer. Usually, these suck, but this one not only provides our first actual look at footage from the July a release, but also some incredibly tantalizing shots for any fan of the Terminator series. Check out the first Terminator Genisys footage below. Read More »
