When Tom Cruise finds a director he likes, he sticks to them like glue. The actor has collaborated with some of the finest filmmakers in his career: Stanley Kubrick (Eyes Wide Shut), Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia), Steven Spielberg (Minority Report), Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire), and Michael Mann (Collateral), to name a few. One of his most rewarding collaborations from the past few years was with Doug Liman (Swingers, The Bourne Identity). Although Edge of Tomorrow didn’t perform gangbusters at the box-office, it’s an exceptional action movie that was loved by most. The actor and director are about to work together for a third time on Luna Park, a sci-fi thriller. Learn more after the jump.

Remember in 2012, when College Humor released a parody trailer for a Dora the Explorer live-action movie and we all had a good laugh about how ridiculous that idea was? Well, we’re not saying Paramount gets its ideas from College Humor parody trailers, but we’re not not saying that either. The studio has put into development a real Dora the Explorer live-action movie, with Puss in Boots scribe Tom Wheeler set to write.
While you let that sink in, Wheeler has also been set to pen the next draft of Paramount’s Micronauts, another live-action feature based on a kiddie property — in this case, a Hasbro toy line. More on the Micronauts and Dora the Explorer live-action movie projects after the jump. Read More »
The last time Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell teamed up, it resulted in the mostly satisfying buddy cop comedy The Other Guys. But this time the two are going head to head in order to win over the love of Linda Cardellini‘s kids.
Daddy’s Home sees Ferrell as the new husband in a family with two kids, eager to win them over as their step-dad. But out of nowhere, their badass biological father (Wahlberg) shows up. And in the new Daddy’s Home trailer, he’s not pulling any punches when it comes to making sure his kids remember who their real father is. But Ferrell doesn’t take it lying down, and the two end up in a good old-fashioned dad-off. There’s no way this will have any impact on the children’s emotional development at all. Read More »

Guillermo del Toro likes to talk and if you’ve ever seen him in an interview or a Q&A, you understand why everyone always shuts up and listens. He’s smart, he’s hilarious, and he’s a natural raconteur. He has great taste and won’t hesitate to talk about superheroes, monsters, theme park attractions, ghost stories, and 19th century romantic literature. When he opens his mouth, he tends to say exciting things. Sometimes, this means he spitballs movie ideas in public and all we can do is sit back and watch as he picks and chooses which of his 87 potential projects he’ll make next.
Now, he’s started teasing us about wanting to make a movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s Pet Sematary. The chances of this happening are slim to none, but the mere concept now lingers in the air. Of course the guy behind The Devil’s Backbone and Crimson Peak would make a great Pet Sematary.

We’ve heard before that all the activity has led to this, but in the case of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, it really seems to be true as this is meant to be the final chapter in the found footage horror series.
And as one last ditch effort to get people on board before the film arrives next week, one final Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension trailer has arrived, with some new footage from the sequel that will show us more of the spirits and demons than we’ve ever seen before, including the infamous Toby.

Next week brings what is supposedly the final installment of the Paranormal Activity franchise. The found footage horror sensation began in 2009, when a little Slamdance film garnered so much buzz for being flat-out scary that it became a surprise horror hit. It spawned what will be five sequels when The Ghost Dimension arrives.
And since this is the final chapter of the film series, the marketing team behind the films wanted to have one final bit of fun with some unsuspecting strangers. An effects crew was hired to rig the actual house from the first movie for quite the incredible Paranormal Activity prank. This would scare the hell out of me. Read More »
