Four years after The Hangover blew up their careers in a big way, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis are circling back to close that chapter of their careers once and for all. Or at least until Warner Bros. realize these movies are still making a ton of money and they need to make more of them.
A new red-band trailer has dropped for The Hangover Part III, the last planned installment of the comedy franchise. As always, red-band means NSFW, so take a look around before you hit the jump to check it out.

The concept of Pacific Rim seems like the simplest thing ever. Humans pilot giant robots to battle giant alien monsters. However, Warner Bros. is dead set on letting audiences know there’s much more to it than that. In the latest trailer for the Guillermo del Toro sci-fi action film, the focus is squarely on the history and mythology created for the film. (With plenty of new shots of massive destruction and fighting along the way.) Read More »

In theory, there’s no reason a DC Cinematic Universe shouldn’t work every bit as well as — perhaps better, even — than a Marvel Cinematic Universe. In practice, however, we’ve seen Marvel dominate while Warner Bros. struggles mightily to get their non-Batman and non-Superman properties to take flight. The rumors surrounding the planned Justice League movie haven’t been terribly encouraging so far, either.
Plenty of fans and pundits have put forth ideas on why exactly Warner Bros. is flubbing so badly, and today two prominent industry figures have a bit of advice on how the studio could turn things around. After the jump, read Kevin Feige and Damon Lindelof‘s comments on how to solve a problem like the Justice League.

Is Will Smith looking to make up for balking at starring in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained by starring in a remake of one of the biggest landmarks in the Western canon? Smith has signed to produce and star in the remake of Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch, which Warner Bros. has been trying to kickstart for a few years. That’s a piece of news that sounds pretty ridiculous, as the family-friendly guy who shied away fro Django is just about the last guy I’d expect to remake a film famous for its violence and adult themes.
(And yeah, let’s just get it out of the way: The Wild Wild Bunch. There, now we can move on.)

One of the reasons filmmakers have had problems turning Superman into a believable film character is he’s simply too awesome. He’s can fly, he’s the strongest, fastest person on the plant (most of the time), and is impervious to almost everything. Who could possibly relate to a being so super?
In Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Man of Steel, they’ve embraced those traits and brought Superman down to Earth by tackling his emotions and insecurities. This new Superman can’t be physically hurt, but is hurting deep down inside. Fortunately for the world, that still doesn’t change the fact he can fly, has super strength and super speed.
Those three traits are put on display in three new Man of Steel featurettes that are filled with new footage and interviews. Check them out below. Read More »
The new film from Andy and Lana Wachowski, Jupiter Ascending, features Mila Kunis as a cleaning woman who, unbeknownst to her, shares a genetic makeup with the Queen of the Universe. The Queen isn’t all that happy about the existence of a potential rival, and sends Channing Tatum to track her down.
Set images aren’t usually the best way to get a look at an upcoming film, and in this particular case they’re probably a bit weirder than usual. Without any context, we can only make guesses about how these characters fit into the film. Given how little info we have on the movie, those guesses will probably be wrong. So, presented below are a few shots from the set of Jupiter Ascending. The stars are not pictured; rather we see extras who’ll fill out the world the Wachowskis are creating. Read More »
Briefly: The talk of a Gremlins sequel has turned to talk of a remake, and now we’ve got one person who is reportedly shepherding the film through the Warner Bros. machine. Seth Grahame-Smith, creator of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and the screenwriter of Dark Shadows, has been given the reigns to the remake.
Bloody Disgusting reports that Grahame-Smith is working alongside David Katzenberg. There aren’t any details yet about what they’ll do with the story, which originally told of a young man whose father gives him an unusual creature as a present. Trouble is, the creature has rules, and breaking them leads to an infestation of intelligent, demented beasts with a taste for mayhem.
There also is no word on how the Gremlins will be realized. The original film was a product of the pre-CGI era, and featured wonderful puppet and animatronic work. If the remake goes into production, it will likely use, at the very least, a blend of puppets and CGI. In other words, we don’t know much about the remake, but what we do know isn’t making it seem like a great idea.
