Of all the information that came out of the infamous Sony hack a couple years ago, one of the most intriguing and ridiculous things we found out was Sony was tossing around the possibility of crossing over the 21 Jump Street franchise with Men in Black. After we let that thought simmer for a while, that actually sounded like a pretty brilliant idea. Since then, the film has been dubbed MiB 23 and recruited The Muppets director James Bobin to be at the helm. But apparently, the project is still far from a sure thing according to Jonah Hill.

Last month brought the horror thriller Lights Out to theaters, and plenty were terrified by the dark all over again. Now darkness looks to be even more terrifying in the forthcoming horror thriller Don’t Breathe. The film from Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez horrified audiences at the South by Southwest film festival earlier this year, and now it’s coming to theaters in just over a couple weeks. If the first teaser trailer wasn’t enough to unnerve you, then this new red band trailer should really push your buttons. There’s no nudity, just some blood and salty language, so it’s only a little NSFW. Read More »
Sausage Party is a hard-R comedy. Around the time the project was first announced, actor, producer, and co-writer Seth Rogen described it as “an R-rated Pixar-style movie” that’s “fucking filthy” and “really, really, really dirty.” Pretty much everyone who has seen the film, including our own Jacob Hall, agrees with Rogen that it truly is one dirty movie. The film is R-rated, but Rogen and all involved had to make some cuts to secure that rating.
Below, learn what was removed to take the Sausage Party rating down to an R instead of an NC-17.

Just a few days after the reboot of Ghostbusters from director Paul Feig hit theaters, Sony Pictures made quite the confident claim that a sequel would likely be happening. At the time, Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution at Sony Pictures, said:
The ‘Ghostbusters’ world is alive and well. I expect ‘Ghostbusters’ to become an important brand and franchise. While nothing has been officially announced yet, there’s no doubt in my mind it will happen.
It’s a good thing nothing was officially announced, because with a projected loss of $70 million or more when all is said and done, the prospects of a Ghostbusters sequel actually happening aren’t looking too good. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

The Chronicles of Narnia franchise went on a rapid decline. The first installment in the series, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, was a massive success. Disney’s adaptation of C.S. Lewis‘ novel made close to $800M worldwide — a figure the sequels didn’t come close to matching. The two sequels that followed weren’t as embraced by critics, fans, or filmgoers. The last sequel we saw, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, performed well overseas but made barely over $100M in the states. After two underwhelming sequels, it was decided to hit the reset button and give audiences a reboot.

However, Glover could and did talk a bit more about his general experience shooting Spider-Man: Homecoming. Read More »
I didn’t always have a soft spot for the Resident Evil movies, but I developed one over time, especially as it became clear that this trashy, silly, and hilariously convoluted series was just going to keep going and going and going. Even when they’re at their least comprehensible, these films have been a strong showcase for Milla Jovovich as an action hero and watching her find new and bloody ways to combat armies of monsters, mutants, and zombies has, more often than not, been worth the price of admission.
Now, the series looks to be coming to an end with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and the first trailer has arrived. And yet, let’s not take that subtitle too literally yet – you’d need a few hands to count the number of franchises that continued beyond the entry that contained “final” in the title.
