Even though Transformers: The Last Knight has been in production for a while now, we’re still very much in the dark when it comes to the story of the latest franchise sequel directed by Michael Bay. We’ll be able to fill in some gaps when the embargo from our set visit a little while ago is up (it keeps getting pushed back for the time being), but in the meantime, a major story rumor about the film appears to be confirmed with production moving to the United Kingdom. But since it ventures into spoiler territory, we’ll discuss the Transformers The Last Knight story below. Read More »

Not to be outdone by the Blair Witch, Samara is also mounting a return this fall. Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for Rings, starring Matilda Lutz and Alex Roe as the latest victims of that eerie video from 2002’s The Ring. And if you’re wondering how Samara’s curse could possibly continue in an era where no one watches VHS tapes anymore, you may be pleased to see she’s made some technological upgrades. Watch the Rings trailer below.
UPDATE: We’ve added a Rings international trailer below which contains a bit of new footage.

The key to loving Star Trek it to accept that roughly 30-40% of the entire franchise is, quite simply, not good. You roll with the weak seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation to get to the good stuff. You endure season three of the original series because season one was so good. You grit your teeth through the bad movies because Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is a legit masterpiece. Heck, this is probably the healthy approach to all fandoms. It allows you to really appreciate the good stuff.
When Star Trek convention-goers gathered in 2013 to rank the films from best to worst, Star Trek Into Darkness rightfully ranked in the bottom spot…and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier rightfully fell right under it. The fifth Star Trek movie starring the original crew, directed by William Shatner himself, is a bad movie, a cringeworthy exercise in how to sabotage everything that makes the original series dynamic work. And now, Shatner has apologized for it. Sort of. Kind of. Not really.

While we’re waiting to see if Martin Scorsese’s long-gestating film The Irishman will actually come together next year to bring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci together, we have some news regarding the movie that The Departed director already has in the can for this year.
Silence has been a passion project of Martin Scorsese’s for 20 years, and so far all we’ve seen from the movie are a couple images from 2015 with stars Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield. But it sounds like once the movie hits theaters (which is expected before the end of the year) there will be plenty to see, because the film could be Martin Scorsese’s longest movie yet.
Find out the Silence runtime after the jump. Read More »

Ethan Hunt’s next death-defying adventure has hit a bit of a speed bump. Paramount Pictures has reportedly pumped the brakes on Mission: Impossible 6, which has Tom Cruise returning to star and Chris McQuarrie back to direct. But there’s no need to panic yet: shooting isn’t even underway on the film, and there’s a good chance both sides will work something out before the entire thing has to be pushed back. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We place the great artists on pedestals. We like to look at the finished work, whether it be a painting or an album or a movie, and discuss the intentions of the creator. The author, the sculptor, and the film director are often enigmas in the eyes of those who take in they work. How they achieve the end results, their actual process, is so often a mystery to those outside of their cast and crew.
So yes, listening to Jonah Hill talk about being directed by Martin Scorsese (a textbook definition of the phrase “living legend”) on the set of The Wolf of Wall Street is something you may need in your life.

This past summer marked the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and there were various screenings of the film here and there to celebrate the milestone, but otherwise it’s been a pretty quiet celebration. It’s certainly nowhere near as buzzworthy as the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future last year or Ghostbusters the year before that. That’s a real shame, because this John Hughes classic is one of the best coming of age comedies of all time, and it deserves some celebratory love. That’s where artist Marq Spusta and Dark Hall Mansion come into play with a new Ferris Bueller’s Day Off print that you can get today. Read More »

What with all the Blade Runner 2 news swirling around, it’s been easy to forget that Denis Villeneuve has another, very different sort of sci-fi film coming out in the meantime. But over the past few weeks, Paramount has made a concentrated effort to get Arrival on moviegoers’ radars, and after seeing some intriguing footage earlier this month, we won’t be forgetting about this one again.
The hard sci-fi drama unfolds in the modern world, which is forever changed when a group of mysterious aliens touch down in various locations around the globe. Amy Adams leads the cast as a linguist tasked with making contact with these extraterrestrials, and Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, and Michael Stuhlbarg also star. Those names alone are probably enough to sell this project to some moviegoers, but in case you need some more convincing — or in case you’re just curious to see more — a couple of new Arrival trailers have landed. Check ’em out below. Read More »
A widely released action movie starring Tom Cruise shouldn’t need people rushing to its defense, but I’ve spent the past four years sticking up for Jack Reacher. Christopher McQuarrie’s cinematic take on Lee Child‘s long-running series of novels about a homeless military police veteran who wanders the country solving problems with both his keen wits and his fists is nothing short of fantastic, an old-school, small-scale thriller that feels like it was made for, well, adults. The action is rough and intimate. The central mystery thoroughly engaging. The characters are rich and often very funny. It even features a brilliantly staged, low-key car chase that puts the bombast of most modern blockbusters to shame. Jack Reacher is the real deal.
As we approach the October release date of the sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, I find myself equally excited and trepidatious in equal measure. Cruise is back, but McQuarrie is not, with Edward Zwick now sitting in the director’s chair. Zwick has made good movies and bad movies, but he’s a solid journeyman when paired with the right material. Is a Jack Reacher sequel the right material? Can a new poster and extended TV spot answer that question?
