The Mummy deleted scene

It’s the movie extra you’ve all been looking forward to: a deleted scene from The Mummy! Just kidding, I know none of you have been looking forward to it.

With the coming release of Universal’s failed attempt to launch it’s shared Dark Universe on Blu-ray and DVD, fans of the Tom Cruise vehicle can get a sneak peek at a deleted scene that features the 55-year-old actor in all his shirtless glory.

the purge election year trailer

Last year’s The Purge: Election Year didn’t exactly close the door on the popular horror series, but it did conclude with things looking up for the nightmarish near-future America where all crime is legalized for one night each year. If it was the final film, it would have been a satisfying ending. But the Purge movies are cheap to make and they gross a lot of money, so a fourth film was inevitable. And the series is going back to where it all began.

So, how exactly does an evil government get away with actually kickstarting a special holiday where people are encouraged to go out and murder each other? The Purge: The Island will be a prequel and it will address that question directly.

the snowman international trailer

While the first official trailer for The Snowman offered a tantalizing look at Michael Fassbender‘s hunt for a serial killer with a chilling trademark, the international trailer delivers even more gore and intrigue.

The adaptation of Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbø‘s novel by Swedish director Tomas Alfredson (of Let the Right One In and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy fame) promises to be more than just a typical murder mystery set in a desolate snowscape, which is beginning to become a startlingly popular genre lately.

insidious the last key trailer

The Insidious franchise may have begun with Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne dealing with a demon in their home, but everyone quickly realized that demonologist Elise Reiner and her technologically proficient sidekicks Specs and Tucker were the real stars of the show. So how do you deal with the fact that Elise didn’t survive the events of the first film? Simple: you make the sequels into prequels.

Following in the footsteps of 2015’s Insidious: Chapter 3, the fourth film in the series takes place before the events of the first movie, bringing the great Lin Shaye back into the fold for another supernatural adventure. The first Insidious: The Last Key trailer is here and the lack of a number in the title is telling – the series is breaking free from the first few entries and is looking to chart a new course.

unbreakable

In a month’s time, M. Night Shyamalan will begin shooting a sequel we’ve been wanted for years. Shyamalan will complete a trilogy that started with Unbreakable and continued with Split. The final chapter, Glass, brings the heroic David Dunn (Bruce Willis), the villainous Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) and his multiple personalities together for what Shyamalan calls a “crazy comic book thriller.” The director has revealed few details about the sequel, but a new plot synopsis shines some more light on what to expect from Glass.

Below, check out the Glass synopsis.

American Made Featurette

Right now Tom Cruise is out of commission with a broken ankle, halting the production of Mission: Impossible 6 for anywhere from six weeks to three months. But if you still need your fix of Cruise in the meantime this fall will deliver a big dose of the international superstar in the true story of an airline pilot turned drug and gun trafficker and money launderer for the government.

American Made tells the real story of a man named Barry Seal who was recruited by the CIA to do some shady business dealings with some of the most notorious drug kingpins of the 1980s, and he was paid handsomely for it. For those who maybe don’t know about the true story, a new American Made featurette shows Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman recounting what they learned about the real Barry Seal, complete with new footage from the movie itself.

Update: Apple has now entered discussions to make major Hollywood releases available for home rentals only two weeks after they debut theatrically. Get the latest information below.

But would you pay that price to watch a movie at home? Read More »

harry potter video game ride

Harry Potter doesn’t own wizards and magic wands — though The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando certainly popularized selling them in merchandise form.

The magic wand is a particularly clever piece of marketing that also is deeply connected to the world of Harry Potter — there are whole subplots about the importance of a wizard’s bond with his wand and how the “wand chooses the wizard.” Heck, the entire finale of Harry Potter hinges on the ownership of a wand! Merlin’s wand in Disney’s The Sword in the Stone? Not so pivotal.

But Disneyland Paris is piggybacking on the success of the Harry Potter wands, and creating their own brand of magic wands that can be sold at a Merlin’s Shop near you! And by near you, I mean exclusively in Disneyland Paris.

girls trip movie

It’s safe to say that the summer of 2017 is all about the ladies…and ladies taking long-held beliefs about what makes a box office hit and completely blowing them out of the water.

Though Wonder Woman‘s Gal Gadot (and director Patty Jenkins!) and Atomic Blonde‘s Charlize Theron gave women some new action heroes to admire, one movie that deserves a closer look is Girls Trip. What could have been overlooked as yet another Hangover-esque story, Girls Trip has defied expectations, becoming one of the biggest standouts of the summer season. Sure, it didn’t open at number one, but if blockbusters like Batman v Superman and X-Men: Apocalypse taught us anything, opening weekend means very little in terms of quality. Girls Trip not only pulled in more than its projected debut with $31 million, but the raunchy comedy, anchored by an absolutely hilarious cast of black women, only saw a 36% drop in its second weekend, pulling in another $20 million in its second weekend.

The obsession with the number one box office spot will never go away, but after several weeks of holding strong at the box office (it has earned $88 million against a budget of only $19 million), it is time we address the big question: what can Hollywood learn from Girls Trip? The answer is: a great deal.
