Ghostbusters just arrived on home video last week, and it came with the extended cut of the film that wasn’t seen in theaters. Word on the street is that the extra 15 minutes put back into the movie actually fixes many of the plot holes that remained in the theatrical cut, and it just might be worth watching. It probably won’t change the minds of those who flat out hated the theatrical cut already, but there you have it.
Now that the film is on home video, some of the outtakes are making their way online. There are actually two gag reels and six alternate take reels available in the special features, showing that Paul Feig shot a lot of footage for this movie. They’re all worth watching for some laughs, but easily the best one out of all of them are Kate McKinnon‘s Ghostbusters outtakes. They’re wacky, wonderful and just pure improvisational magic. Watch them below! Read More »
Much like the long life of the Fast and Furious franchise, it’s hard to believe that early next year we’ll be getting the sixth film in the Resident Evil franchise. While the film series based on the video games of the same name hasn’t really found the same massive audience after starting back in 2002, there are still plenty of fans eager to see how it all ends.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter appears to be pulling out all the stops this time as a new international trailer shows even more absolutely batshit insane action sequences featuring hordes of zombies, giant winged-creatures, and villainous corporate executives talking menacingly in board rooms at the Umbrella Corporation headquarters. It’s exactly what you would expect from director Paul W.S. Anderson‘s latest contribution to the franchise.

Judging from Peter Parker’s brief appearance in Captain America: Civil War, it seems like the Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures experiment is shaping up to be a success. Spider-Man: Homecoming just completed principal photography and won’t hit theaters until Summer 2017, but a sequel is reportedly already in the works. When Sony made a deal with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that deal was only for one standalone movie and an early appearance in Civil War. But it now seems like Sony may be ready for more. So what does this mean for the upcoming third Avengers film? Will we see Spider-Man in Infinity War?

As the new movie by Ang Lee, and an adaptation of a highly acclaimed bestselling novel to boot, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk would be one of our most anticipated movies of the fall no matter what. But the project’s been getting special attention for the way it was shot and is being presented: in 120 frames per second. For comparison, most movies are in 24 fps; Peter Jackson made a very unusual move when he shot The Hobbit in 48 fps.
So, what does that high frame rate do, exactly? In a new featurette, Lee and his cast members talk up the “immersive experience” of 120 fps. Plus, there’s a behind-the-scenes promo featuring NFL stars J.J. Watt and Richard Sherman, both of whom appear in the movie, and a more straightforward 30-second spot. Watch it all below. Read More »

With a 2018 release date already on the calendar, Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan is out to find a director. But not just any director. A new report indicates the studio would “ideally” like to hire an Asian filmmaker for the job. In fact, they’ve already approached Ang Lee, although he has since turned them down. Meanwhile, the competition is on a similar mission: Sony also has a Mulan picture in the works, and is also looking to find an Asian director to take the reins. Read More »

Anyone who keeps up with James Bond has probably heard the remark that Daniel Craig made during the publicity tour for Spectre last year regarding a preference for slitting his wrists instead of doing another movie as 007. However, this reaction came at a time of pure exhaustion after making the movie and being on a worldwide publicity tour for it. But that hasn’t stopped discussions of a potential replacement for the actor, though we’ve recently heard that Daniel Craig is still the first choice for playing the secret agent, even though the report of a $150 million offer was revealed to be bogus.
Now we finally have some recent thoughts on the matter from Daniel Craig, who was interviewed at The New Yorker Fest for the first time since his Spectre press tour. The discussion tackled a variety of topics from his acting career, but of course chatter inevitably turned to the likelihood of him returning for Bond 25. While he didn’t offer any solid answer one way or the other about putting the tuxedo on again, it’s clear that while everyone thought Daniel Craig hates James Bond, he still has a love for the franchise and character.

Earlier today we saw a trailer for the next addition to Screen Gems’ Underworld series. The studio has now released a trailer for another entry in their Resident Evil franchise. The 14-year-old series may finally come to a close with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, but we’ll have to wait and see if it has a real ending, not some winky setup for another installment. The previous Resident Evil film ended with a tease of a battle at the White House, but that’s not the story of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Paul W.S. Anderson‘s film begins there, but we won’t see much of Alice (Milla Jovovich) in the nation’s capital.
Below, watch the Resident Evil: The Final Chapter trailer.
