Atomic Blonde Featurette

There was a time when saying that someone “fights like a girl” was considered an insult. Thankfully, that’s become something that doesn’t really sound all that lame anymore, especially when you have a superhero like Wonder Woman cleaning up at the box office. Adding to the power behind female punches will be a new action flick starring Mad Max: Fury Road‘s badass Charlize Theron.

Atomic Blonde stars Charlize Theron as an assassin working for MI6 who is stuck dealing with a city of traitors and killers trying to bump her off at every turn. She’s being hailed as the female 007, and if the trailers are any indicator, this movie will be even more kick-ass than the last mission James Bond went on in Spectre. Now, a new featurette takes a closer look at the action in the flick, showing us just how much of the fighting Charlize Theron is doing herself. Read More »

The Fate of the Furious director's cut

The director’s cut of The Fate of the Furious is 13 minutes longer. This franchise has a more-is-more attitude, which generally works in its favor, so even more of Dom and the family probably sounds all right for fans of the series. Director F. Gary Gray says his cut has more action and humor, but also punches up some of the characters and provides some breathing room.

Below, the Straight Outta Compton director discusses The Fate of the Furious director’s cut.

Are We Getting a Fast and Furious Outer Space Future?

The fate of the Fast and Furious franchise is uncertain. While the once-scrappy street car racing films have turned into globe-trotting action movie phenomenons that rake in billions at the box office, the series may be facing some changes behind the scenes.

Director F. Gary Gray, who took the wheel for Fate of the Furious after Justin Lin and James Wan had ushered the series into blockbuster territory, has expressed reservations about returning to the franchise. This arrives on top of Michelle Rodriguez threatening to leave the series over the treatment of its female characters, casting a shadow over the films — even as stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson supposedly put aside their “candy ass” feud. But there’s one silver lining: Gray is not opposed to finally taking Fast and Furious to outer space.

Jurassic Park Dinosaurs Mash-Up

If you didn’t live through the 1990s, then you might not know that there was an inexplicably popular sitcom on ABC called Dinosaurs. Featuring actors in big rubber suits, the series was your average sitcom, but it just so happened to follow a family of walking, talking dinosaurs living during a time when Pangea was still a thing.

Now illustrator Jen Lewis has given Dinosaurs the upgrade it deserves by making the family of prehistoric beasts part of Steven Spielberg’s modern classic Jurassic Park. Earl Sinclair (the father), Fran Sinclair (the mother and Earl’s wife), their three children (son Robbie, daughter Charlene, and Baby Sinclair) and even Fran’s mother, Ethyl are all dinosaurs in the theme park. Plus, the show’s opening credits even get an amusing makeover.

Let the Jurassic Park Dinosaurs mash-up make your dreams come true below. Read More »

Mondo Jaws Vinyl

Back in 1975, Steven Spielberg made the beach terrifying to families enjoying a day off on the 4th of July by bringing Jaws to theaters. Helping to make the prospect of a shark-infested beach that much more scary was the iconic, suspenseful notes that John Williams composed to add even more suspense to what became the first summer blockbuster.

Now you can bring the famous Jaws theme home on vinyl thanks to Mondo’s latest commemorative release of the score, complete with artwork by Phantom City Creative. Though the score has been available on vinyl before, it was only ever offered as a re-recording. This is the first time the score, as composed and recorded for the actual film, has been made available on vinyl, and it looks glorious.

Atomic Blonde Trailer

Keanu Reeves returned to the big screen in John Wick: Chapter 2 earlier this year, bringing the badass assassin back in an even bigger way. However, Charlize Theron isn’t far behind with her own action flick, and she’s got one of the filmmakers behind John Wick coming with her.

Atomic Blonde finds the Mad Max: Fury Road star as an assassin in 1980s Berlin who must deal with an endless array of bad guys as she attempts to complete her latest mission. A new trailer for the movie from director David Leitch (who is hard at work on Deadpool 2) has arrived and it showcases even more of Charlize Theron’s kick-ass action.

Despicable Me 3 trailer

In just seven years, Illumination Entertainment has turned the grouchy, pointy-nosed villain Gru and his yellow Minions into some of the most recognizable characters in all of pop culture. They’ve starred in multiple movies, they show up in theme parks, you can buy their toys, and so on. The characters are ubiquitous. This feat of marketing is even more fascinating in its success considering that the Despicable Me franchise has yet to produce a truly good film, a streak sadly continued by the latest, Despicable Me 3. Like the first two films, as well as the obnoxious Minions spin-off film from 2015, this new entry is a loud, manic, and frantic extended episode of an overly familiar sitcom.

Cult of Chucky trailer

Say what you will about Chucky, the murderous doll who first appeared in the 1988 movie Child’s Play, but the cinematic killer has definitely proven to have some serious staying power. It’s been four years since the knife-wielding serial slasher, who’s been voiced by The Lord of the Rings and Deadwood actor Brad Dourif in all six Chucky movies so far, appeared in Curse of Chucky. But now he’s back in another new direct-to-video horror film from director Don Mancini, who’s helmed the three most recent entries. Watch the Cult of Chucky trailer below.
