This coming weekend, we’ll see Kevin Hart get into action with Dwayne Johnson in Central Intelligence. They must have found some magic while making the movie, because they’re already slated to team up again in the reboot of Jumanji, with Jack Black joining them. But before they roll the dice, Hart will be on the big screen all by himself with a new theatrically released stand-up special.
Kevin Hart: What Now sees the comedian continuing to follow in the footsteps of comedians such as Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence by bringing his stand-up comedy to as many people as possible by way of movie theaters. If you want to see what kind of laughs Hart has in store this time, watch the Kevin Hart What Now trailer after the jump. Read More »

Warcraft isn’t actor Toby Kebbell’s first rodeo with motion-capture. Following up his performance in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, in which he played Koba, Kebbell stars in director Duncan Jones‘ fantasy film as Durotan, a noble orc more interested in peace than war. The Blizzard adaptation shows both sides of a war — and Durotan is unquestionably the moral compass on the orcs’ side.
It’s this nobility and thoughtfulness, as Kebbell explained to us, that informed the physicality of his performance. Below, read our Toby Kebbell interview.

Warcraft won’t open in the U.S. for another few days, but already the signs aren’t good. Early tracking suggested a limp performance in theaters, and that 23% Rotten Tomatoes score probably won’t help matters either. From here, Warcraft has all the makings of an epic flop. That is, except for the fact that it’s already a smash hit abroad. Duncan Jones‘ fantasy adventure has earned around $45.7 million in its first day playing in China — more than recent blockbusters like Avengers: Age of Ultron or Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

We haven’t seen Matt Damon play Jason Bourne in almost nine years, but time doesn’t seem to have slowed him down, based on the trailers and featurettes we’ve seen for director Paul Greengrass‘ Jason Bourne. Whether Damon would return to arguably his most famous role was a question mark for many years, but after Greengrass had committed to the sequel, the actor signed up.
The plot details for the latest Bourne adventure have been slightly vague, but the newest Jason Bourne TV spot pretty much comes right out and says what the film is about. Below, watch the new Jason Bourne TV spot.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Are you a customer of T-Mobile? The mobile phone company is giving you a freebie: a free ticket to Warcraft via Fandango. Sure, this could easily be seen as a desperate move by Universal to inflate the box office numbers, but this kind of thing has been done for many blockbuster movies, usually through movie cash included in DVD and Blu-ray releases. So I wouldn’t look negatively upon this promotion. These kind of deals usually work to help word of mouth. Plus, if you get a free ticket you’re probably going to invite someone else or possibly a group of friends to the movie screening — who of course will actually have to pay for their tickets.
This deal specifically is part of a much larger “#GetThanked” campaign by T-Mobile, which is a nice promotion to reward their longtime customers. It appears this promotion was planned for a long while now, so don’t make any assumptions that this promotion was added to combat last minute box office tracking. The film has already made $70 million overseas from a couple dozen territories, but has yet to open in China (where its expected to make some big money) and the United States (of course). Read the full press release to find out how you can get the free Warcraft ticket and much more, after the jump.

Even though the early buzz on the Warcraft movie hasn’t been that great, that didn’t stop Halloween and Freaky Friday star Jamie Lee Curtis and her son from showing their excitement at the premiere. The mother-son duo showed up in full orc wardrobe, with Curtis dressed up as an orc shaman and her son Tom as an orc warrior. As you can see, we’re not just talking about throwing on some armor, but full face paint too.

Just over a week ago, a video from the production of Fast 8 featured nearly the entire cast of the action sequel on set, though not with all of them together. Now a new photo from Vin Diesel rounds up all the principal performers from the film directed by F. Gary Gray, including all the returning cast members and the new ones as well. It also gives us our first look at Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju in the film with that wild red beard of his intact. Check out the Fast 8 cast photo below. Read More »
Pacific Rim opened to mixed reviews and even more mixed box office back in 2013, barely scraping past $100 million at the domestic box office while finding far more success abroad. Those who love it really love it and those who hate it really hate it. I’m personally quite fond of the big, silly world director Guillermo del Toro crafted – even when the movie doesn’t quite work, this is a universe so full of concepts that deserve to be expanded upon and infinite possibilities for future stories. Even though del Toro is stepping away from the sequel and letting Steven S. DeKnight take the directorial reins, Pacific Rim 2 remains an intriguing prospect.
And it just got even more intriguing, because John Boyega has joined the cast as the son of Idris Elba‘s Stacker Pentecost. You know, the best character from the original film. The man with the instantly quotable speech about “canceling the apocalypse.”
