It’s been a long time since we heard anything about G.I. Joe 3. The last development on the sequel had up and coming writer Aaron Berg brought on board as a writer, and before that D.J. Caruso was hired to be at the helm of the movie instead of G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. We’re not sure if either of those two talents are still involved with the project, but it doesn’t sound like G.I. Joe 3 is going to happen anytime soon thanks to the busy schedule of Dwayne Johnson.

Denis Villeneuve‘s Arrival begins with a premise we’ve seen in a hundred summer blockbusters. One day, aliens arrive on Earth, in the form of twelve mysterious ships scattered around the globe. Their purpose is unclear, and humanity is naturally both intrigued and terrified. Where it goes next, though, is a welcome return to grown-up sci-fi, more Contact or Interstellar than Independence Day.
For starters, the aliens don’t open with an attack. And we Earthlings don’t, either. Instead, the U.S. military calls upon Louise (Amy Adams), a linguistics professor, to try and make contact with the alien spaceship in Montana. From there, Villeneuve carefully unspools a story that’s equal parts heart and intellect, encompassing memory, language, loss, love, grief, and the passage of time.

In case you didn’t realize it, yesterday marked the exact 50th anniversary of the debut of Star Trek: The Original Series. The sci-fi show from Gene Roddenberry debuted with an episode called “The Man Trap” and received mixed reviews. Despite a lukewarm reaction from critics, a passionate fanbase kept the show alive for three seasons, totaling 79 episodes, until NBC decided they had to axed the series.
Thankfully, that wasn’t the end of Star Trek as the crew of the USS Enterprise would return in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, launching a whole new series of adventures on the big screen, featuring the same characters fans loved from the original series. Since then there have been plenty of sequels, a franchise reboot, several different TV shows, an animated series, countless comic books, merchandise and more. Star Trek now spans 50 years, and a celebratory retrospective video celebrates the milestone after the jump. Read More »

That slight chill in the air means we’re right at the time of year when thousands of teenagers begin descending on college campuses across the country. Some will meet new friends or mentors or discover new passions. A not inconsiderable proportion of the population will join the Greek system. And a few of those kids might find themselves subject to the kind of brutal hazing depicted in Andrew Neel‘s Goat.
Scripted by David Gordon Green and based on the memoir by Brad Land, Goat premiered at Sundance earlier this year to promising reviews. Ben Schnetzer (last seen casting spells in Warcraft) stars as Land himself, a 19-year-old college kid who pledges the same fraternity his older brother (Nick Jonas) already belongs to. But the protection and friendship Brad was promised come at a steep cost, as the hazing rituals get more and more intense, with painful results. James Franco also stars, as an alum who can’t quite seem to let go of Phi Sigma Mu. Watch the NSFW Goat red-band trailer below. Read More »

The Turtles are the star of the show in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, but plenty of fans have a soft spot for April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and Casey Jones (Stephen Amell) as well. A couple of deleted scenes give more screentime to the Turtles’ human friends, and even makes some room for a blast from the past, in the form of Judith Hoag — the original April O’Neil from the 1990 movie. Watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows deleted scenes below. Read More »
Since Transformers: The Last Knight has been in production for awhile now, we assumed that all of the cast members had been revealed. However, while appearing in Deauville, France to receive a career tribute this past weekend, Stanley Tucci revealed that he will return in the sequel as the character he played in the previous sequel, Transformers: Age of Extinction.
However, for any fans hoping to see Stanley bring back his fantastic character from Devil Wears Prada in a sequel, the actor casts some serious doubt on that ever happening, no matter how much some people out there might want it to happen. Read More »

Just last week, director Michael Bay provided the internet with a look at his custom RED camera affectionately known as “Bayhem.” However, it didn’t really show how helpful the camera is on a traditional Michael Bay set since he was just using it for some Victoria’s Secret commercial. But thanks to a new video from the set of Transformers: The Last Knight in the United Kingdom, we get to see what Michael Bay does with his custom camera in the middle of one of his explosive movie sets.
