Director Jon M. Chu has been dancing back and forth between action adventures and music-infused dance films. On one side, the filmmaker has been at the helm of sequels like G.I. Joe: Retaliation and the forthcoming Now You See Me: The Second Act. And on the other, he’s directed both Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D, not to mention this fall’s big screen adaptation of Jem and the Holograms. Now he’s headed back to action again as Paramount Pictures plans Escape. Read More »

When the last Terminator Genisys trailer came out, I avoided it. Everyone said there was a big reveal within that they considered to be a massive spoiler. But then the new poster for the film is revealed and there it is, literally front and center. Could this seemingly huge franchise-changing reveal really be so insignificant that it’s cool to put in the middle of the poster? Apparently.
Which is a long way to say, there’s a new Terminator Genisys poster out now. It goes along with a new TV spot that shows a bit more of a scene from the first Terminator, which is in this film, and then ends with that big, bad maybe-it’s-not-a spoiler. See the new Terminator Genisys poster and TV spot below. Read More »

Area 51, in which a group of people breaks into the famed government alien holding area, is the long-shelved film from Oren Peli that was once intended to be a follow-up to Paranormal Activity. The film has been stuck in limbo with Paramount’s small Insurge banner for quite some time; the last update on the film came in 2013, and before that 2011.
Now Area 51 is about to get a very short theatrical life. Along with Drunk Wedding, another Insurge film, Area 51 will play sixteen Alamo Drafthouse locations for one weekend in May, alongside their VOD debuts. The first Area 51 trailer is below. Read More »

I’m in Las Vegas for the yearly CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest) which is the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors. The convention is filled with talks about how to maximize profits and a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of their upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond, and some even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
This morning we saw a presentation from Paramount Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Terminator Genisys, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Star Trek 3, Zoolander 2 and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free CinemaCon Paramount reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.
Now that we know Transformers is becoming a larger cinematic universe, the importance of the next film increases drastically. The filmmakers will need to make sure their story not only works individually, but also sets up the world moving ahead. Because of that, thing are going to take a bit longer than expected. Though rumors initially suggested Transformers 5 could come out in 2016, now Hasbro believes 2017 is more realistic. Read more about the rumored Transformers 5 release date below. Read More »
