Blake Lively injury

The Rhythm Section is temporarily halting production after star Blake Lively sustained a hand injury on set.

The 2019 spy thriller, directed by Handmaid’s Tale director Reed Morano (who is definitely not making a Star Wars movie), may have to delay production for up to five months after Lively injured her hand in December and underwent an unsuccessful surgery to remedy the problem. Now, Lively may have to undergo a second hand injury and require more time to recover.

Cloverfield 4

Who could have predicted that 2008’s hand-held monster movie Cloverfield would spawn a franchise we’d still be talking about 10 years later? 2016’s surprise sort-of-sequel 10 Cloverfield Lane provided our first look at the anthology-like nature of this loose franchise umbrella, and while we wait to see a trailer for God Particle (now possibly titled Cloverfield Station) and learn when and how we’re actually going to see that movie, we have confirmation that Cloverfield 4 not only exists, but that it’s already completed filming. The project is called Overlord, and you can read all we know about it below.

The Cloverfield folks are at it again. While the fate of the second untitled Cloverfield sequel’s distribution is up in the air — will it remain with Paramount or go straight to Netflix? — the folks behind the viral marketing for the third film are still on top of their game.

The cryptic website that arrived to promote the Cloverfield movie formerly known as God Particle (now possibly known as Cloverfield Station) has changed, revealing potentially more information about the shady corporation that keeps popping up in the Cloverfield cinematic universe. Read More »

Annihilation Featurette - Natalie Portman

Not too long ago, we released our collective list of /Film’s 25 Most Anticipated Films of 2018. Even though films like Avengers: Infinity War and The Incredibles 2 ended up near the top, our #1 film ended up being Alex Garland‘s new sci-fi thriller Annihilation.

Starring Natalie Portman, the film is based on Jeff VanderMeer’s first novel in the author’s Southern Reach Trilogy, and it follows a group of female scientists and scholars as they head into a strange phenomenon that has appeared on Earth known as The Shimmer. A new Annihilation featurette explains a little more what appears to be happening in The Shimmer, and it doesn’t sound great for the human race. Read More »

mission impossible fallout

Someday, Tom Cruise will do what all humans eventually get around to doing and shuffle off this mortal coil. But the ongoing existence of the Mission: Impossible movies suggest that he’s made a pact with Death itself and will outlive most human beings. How else can you explain him continuing to stare mortality in the face, put his hands on his hips, and laugh in the general direction of God himself?

A new look at a Mission: Impossible – Fallout stunt is the latest reminder that Tom Cruise fears not death nor dismemberment nor bodily harm of any kind. The rest of us can only stare at this image and wince because there’s no way we’d survive this shit.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows Honest Trailer

The first film in the rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise may have gotten everything wrong about the heroes in a half-shell, likely thanks to Michael Bay’s involvement, but Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon tried to make it better by delivering a sequel that was more faithful to the animated series.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows included villains like Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, the Technodrome, cut down on Megan Fox‘s screentime and more. Unfortunately, as the folks at Honest Trailers so astutely points out, they also forgot to write a story that makes some goddamn sense.

Mission Impossible 6 - Tom Cruise Injured

As the missions become more impossible, the Mission: Impossible titles become more dire. The numbers have long given way to formidable, frustratingly vague titles like Ghost Protocol, and Rogue Nation. Now, the title for Mission: Impossible 6 has been revealed along with — what else? — a picture of Tom Cruise dangling from a helicopter. Below, see Mission: Impossible‘s latest crazy Cruise stunt, and the title for the sixth film in the franchise.

Cloverfield Sequel Netflix

Update: Sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that Netflix is in talks to acquire the third untitled Cloverfield movie from Paramount. This means that the sci-fi movie formerly known as The God Particle may not receive a theatrical release. Our original story continues below.

What, exactly, is going on with the untitled third Cloverfield movie?

The movie has seen multiple release date delays and a virtually non-existent marketing that only kicked off with a burgeoning viral campaign last week, mere months before its intended release date. Even then, it’s planned April 2018 release date seemed like an afterthought, changed abruptly over the holidays after not a peep was heard from Paramount and Bad Robot regarding the quick approach of the prior February 2018 release. Could it be part of J.J. Abrams’ and co.’s unorthodox grassroots marketing that it employed for the first Cloverfield and for 10 Cloverfield Lane? Or could it be signs of a troubled production?

A new rumor suggests that it’s the latter. A week after the viral marketing for the new Cloverfield sequel started, rumors claim that the film could be dropped from theatrical release and head straight to Netflix.

Remember Duke Nukem? The video game in which a muscle-bound bro fights aliens with a rotating arsenal of weapons, occasionally stopping to quote They Live and Army of Darkness? Well, now that Hollywood has officially run out of ideas, they’ve decided to turn it into a movie, and they want wrestler and baggy suit enthusiast John Cena to play the part. Groovy.
