jem Movie Synergy

There’s a robot in the new Jem and the Holograms trailer, and at first I was sure why. For the most part, this new trailer is an expansion of the first, where Jerrica, a shy but talented young woman becomes an internet sensation only to find rapacious talent executives trying to separate her from her friends in order to control her. (Just like what happens to Eazy-E in Straight Outta Compton!)

Turns out the robot, a cute toy invented by Jerrica’s dad, is the movie’s updated version of the holographic computer from the original animated series. Check it out in the new Jem trailer below. Read More »

The Purge 3 script

Last week, Universal announced that Frank Grillo would return for The Purge 3. Grillo starred in the second film in the series, The Purge: Anarchy, which was the sequel to the surprise hit The Purge starring Ethan Hawke. Spoiler alert, but Hawke was not available for the sequel due to plot-related incidents in the first movie, although producer Jason Blum has said he would like to do a prequel which could revisit Hawke’s character before the incidents of The Purge.

I had an interview with Grillo on Sunday, August 9 for his DirecTV series Kingdom at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. He told me he was asked back before they had a script featuring his character, and then writer/director James DeMonaco wrote another story for Sergeant (Grillo). Read More »

Steve Jobs TV Spot

As summer winds down, we’re starting to see glimpses of the movies that will be vying for Golden Globes and Oscars this fall and winter, and one of them is undoubtedly Steve Jobs, which just debuted a new extended TV spot.

The biopic from director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and writer Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) stars Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, and goes behind the scenes of how his life’s struggles drove his ambition to make Apple something to be proud of, even to the point of ignoring his own daughter, choosing instead to raise technology as his own.

Kong Skull Island cast

Even though the Universal Pictures origin story of King Kong from Legendary Pictures recently lost Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons, the studio is still moving full steam ahead with Kong: Skull Island by looking for replacements, and adding some new talent as well.

Samuel L. Jackson is reportedly in early talks to take the role that was vacation by Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, and John C. Reilly is at the top of a list of actors being considered to replace Keaton, who left the project due to scheduling. In addition, Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins) is also up for another lead role in the movie. Find out more about the Kong Skull Island cast after the jump! Read More »

By the Sea trailer

For her first two features as a director, Angelina Jolie took on the wartime romance In the Land of Blood and Honey and the prisoner of war tale Unbroken. Now she’s heading into much more intimate territory with By the Sea, and the first trailer has just arrived.

Jolie writes and directs the drama and co-stars with husband Brad Pitt in the story of a couple spending time in 1970s France at a time when their marriage seems to be at its breaking point. It’s a pretty tense and ominous trailer only hinting at the struggles Jolie and Pitt’s characters are having in the film. Watch the By the Sea trailer after the jump! Read More »

Everest trailer

Mountain climbing on its own can be quite a dangerous activity, but it gets infinitely worse when you decide to climb the highest mountain on the planet. And that’s made abundantly clear in a new international trailer for Everest.

The mountain-climbing drama takes an impressive ensemble cast that includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal and hikes them up Mount Everest, which sits at the cruising altitude of a 747 according to the trailer. However, it’s not getting to Everest that proves to be the more dangerous part. It’s getting home.
