Marvel may be reluctant to give Scarlett Johansson her own superhero movie, but everyone else in town seems determined to make her the next big action star. Next year sees her kicking high-tech ass in Ghost in the Shell, Rupert Sanders‘ adaptation of the iconic Japanese manga. Today, a new Ghost in the Shell image offers a new look at her character, the Major, while Sanders promises his movie won’t be “shit.” Good to know, I guess?
Check out the new Ghost in the Shell image below. Read More »

Nearly three years after it started shooting, Monster Trucks is finally getting ready to pull into theaters. And while we’d normally say something hopeful here about the possibility of it being worth the wait, the truth is that expectations for this movie couldn’t be lower. Not only is Paramount Pictures dumping it in the doldrums of January here in the U.S., it’s already taken a $115 million writedown on the film. So the question here isn’t so much “is Monster Trucks any good?” as “okay, but how bad is it really?”
Well, the first reviews are rolling in, and the answer seems to be… well, find out for yourself. Get the Monster Trucks early buzz below. Read More »
Over 14 years after the release of the original xXx, is Xander Cage a character audiences remain interested in? We’ll soon find out when Vin Diesel returns to the role next month in the D.J. Caruso-directed sequel, which co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Toni Collette, and Donnie Yen. So far we’ve seen Cage pull off plenty of wonderfully ridiculous feats in the trailers for the film, and the newest xXx: Return of Xander Cage clip gets, as fans probably hope for, ridiculous real fast.
Below, watch the xXx Return of Xander Cage clip.

This weekend brings the limited release of Martin Scorsese‘s adaptation of Silence, a project that has been over 20 years in the making for the GoodFellas and Taxi Driver director. And now a powerful new international trailer has just debuted online.
Silence follows two 17th-century missionaries (played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) as they face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan, where Christianity was outlawed at the time, to find their missing mentor (Liam Neeson).

Earlier this week, the first trailer for The Fate of the Furious delivered some pretty insane developments for the Fast and the Furious franchise by turning Vin Diesel‘s character Dom against the crew he calls family. However, that’s still not the craziest thing that Vin Diesel will be doing on the big screen next year.
Let’s not forget that xXx: Return of Xander Cage is coming to theaters next month. This is a movie where the first trailer featured Vin Diesel jumping over a speeding car and riding a motorcycle in skis through the ocean. And now a short new trailer features him doing something else ridiculous: breaking a gun over his knee.

Between the Fate of the Furious trailer revealing Vin Diesel’s Dom to be working against the rest of his family and the Transformers: The Last Knight trailer featuring a scene where Optimus Prime battles Bumblebee, we’re awfully close to a new trend: 2017 movies where beloved heroes break bad and turn against their team. The new poster for director Michael Bay‘s fifth Transformers movie doubles down on this concept, featuring the world’s most iconic robot-who-is-also-sometimes-a-car standing over the body (corpse?) of the second most iconic robot-who-is-also-sometimes-a-car.

The first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight arrived one week ago, along with our coverage from a set visit that happened over the summer up in Michigan (find out what we learned right here). However, last week was chock full of a bunch of stuff, including the teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, first trailer for The Mummy, the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes. So we thought maybe we should swing around to Transformers to try and assess exactly what the hell is going on in that first trailer.
One of the big questions following the trailer’s debut is why Optimus Prime and Bumblebee were fighting (and some theories have been proposed), but there’s much more to dive into in this trailer breakdown, and we’re trying to make sense of it all in our Transformers The Last Knight trailer breakdown after the jump.

Director Martin Scorsese has been trying to get his adaptation of Japanese author Sh?saku End?‘s novel Silence off the ground for over 20 years. Now the film is finally hitting theaters later this month, and the first reviews have hit the web.
The film isn’t in line with the kind of movie more casual moviegoers are used to getting from Martin Scorsese, who is better known for movies like The Departed, The Wolf of Wall Street, Gangs of New York, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and GoodFellas. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have the same high quality we’ve come to expect from the filmmaker as he crafts something more along the lines of his films such as The Last Temptation of Christ and Kundun.
If you haven’t kept up with the development of Silence, the film follows two 17th-century missionaries (played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) as they face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan to find their missing mentor (Liam Neeson). So how did Martin Scorsese’s long-gestating passion project pan out? Read some of the first Silence reviews after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
It’s been over 10 years since An Inconvenient Truth debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, played at theaters around the world, and then won the Academy Award for Documentary Feature. The film from director Davis Guggenheim followed former vice president and presidential candidate Al Gore on the lecture circuit as he campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.
Well, here we are over a decade later, and global warming is still a problem that is getting worse all the time. That means it’s time for An Inconvenient Truth sequel, and Paramount Pictures will be bringing it back to Sundance, where the first film debuted back in 2006. Find out more after the jump.

Paramount Pictures has announced that CLOVERFIELD MOVIE (IMAX) will be hitting theaters on October 27th, 2017. At the same time, God Particle which was originally set to hit theaters on February 24th, 2017 has been removed from the schedule. God Particle was believed to be the next film in the Cloverfield anthology film franchise, following off of the success of this year’s 10 Cloverfield Lane. While we assume that the new IMAX Cloverfield Movie is God Particle and that the studio has finally renamed it publicly, there is no confirmation on this from Paramount.
