Age doesn’t always mean wisdom, as evidenced in the new Dumb and Dumber To international trailer. Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) may be twenty years older, but they’ve still got the combined mental capacity of an eight-year-old.
The sequel follows the pair on another wacky road trip, this time to track down the daughter that Harry never knew he had. Watch the Dumb and Dumber To international trailer after the jump.

As fans scramble for information on high-profile 2015 sequels to Star Wars, Jurassic Park, The Avengers and Terminator, there’s another we know even less about. That’s Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to the 2012 cult hit about competitive a capella singing. We know that most, if not all of the original cast is back, and that producer Elizabeth Banks is directing from a script by original writer Kay Cannon. Rumor has it the story takes place a few years after the original film. But really that’s all we know. How do the older characters return? What are the stakes? Who are the bad guys? We know almost nothing about those things.
That last question has now partially been answered. A famous a capella group called the Pentatonix, winners of the 3rd season of NBC’s The Sing-Off, have announced they’re playing rivals to the Barden Bellas, which includes Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson. Read More »
We’re still a year out from the release of Jurassic World, but the team behind the film knows there is a good deal of interest in the film already. And so the producers and PR team have been dropping little bits of info here and there. We had a great interview with director Colin Trevorrow, and then the first batch of images went online. Now the latest look at the movie is a short Jurassic World behind the scenes glimpse, via the Today Show.
Trevorrow and stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, along with Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins, have hit the Today Show to talk about the movie. In two video clips we see some behind the scenes crowd shots, and Trevorrow has a good line about working with Steven Spielberg. Read More »

For those who felt the first The Purge was too limited and too familiar, The Purge: Anarchy takes the same basic premise but goes in a bolder, more extreme direction. Once again, the story is set in a dystopian America where, in a ghastly effort to weed out the weak and let the strong blow off steam, all crime has been legalized for one twelve-hour period per year.
But this time, the action spills out onto the streets as Frank Grillo plays a man who heads out in search of revenge. Unfortunately for him (and the others with him), it’s not long before the tables are turned on them. Watch the new The Purge: Anarchy trailer after the jump.

The casting choices for the three core characters in Universal’s N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton, were just leaked over the past few days – or we thought they had been. Now, Universal has put out an official release for the film, and there’s a key difference. Yes, Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. will play Cube, and Jason Mitchell will play Eazy-E. Contrary to previous reports, however, Corey Hawkins will be on screen as Dr. Dre. Now Universal has given the film a release date, and released the first Straight Outta Compton cast photo. See that pic below. Read More »
Briefly: The once jam-packed summer of 2015 continues to thin out. In a slow parade, one film after another has bowed out of next year’s summer season. Now another can be added the list. The fifth Bourne film, which is still untitled, has moved from August 14, 2015, to July 15, 2016.
Jeremy Renner is back as Aaron Cross and Justin Lin is directing. Beyond that, we know very little. What we do know is Lin will now have a lot more time to make the movie, which will open against Ice Age 5. Universal will distribute.
Last week, official images of the humans in Jurassic World were released. And sure, it was cool seeing Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in that world. Fans, however, really just want to see some dinosaurs. That reveal is probably at least a few months away, as filming is still underway and many of the dinosaurs are sure to be computer-generated.
But not all of them will be. Director Colin Trevorrow took to Twitter to tease a look at a Jurassic World dinosaur and you can see the image below. Read More »
