Ocean's 8 trailer

A new Ocean’s 8 trailer is here, reminding us all that this impeccably-cast film is probably going to be a lot of fun. Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter star in the female-driven sequel/reboot of Steven Soderbergh‘s Ocean’s 11 films.

‘Rampage’ Review: A Big, Dumb, Not-So-Fun Cartoon

I can’t tell whether there’s too much rampaging in Rampage, or not enough. The only thing I am sure about is that it takes too long to get to the rampaging. Rampaging is, after all, the number one thing that Rampage has going for it — exposition and set-up aren’t exactly the draw of a movie like this.

For anyone for whom the title isn’t a sufficient description of what you’re getting into, suffice to say that Rampage is a good old-fashioned monster movie. A mysterious serum gets cooked up in a lab in outer space via CRISPR gene editing (which is a real thing), and when things on the station go awry, canisters of the serum plummet down to Earth. Those canisters, in turn, infect a few animals, causing them to grow in size and throwing a few other genetic mutations into the mix. And then, well, you know.

joaquin phoenix joker

In case you forgot, a Joker origin movie directed by The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips, written by 8 Mile scribe Scott Silver, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese is happening. Though the movie still sounds like someone threw a bunch of Film Twitter words into an online generator, the Warner Bros. movie continues to be a very real project.

The only element of the film that sounds remotely real (Scorsese? Really!?) is the potential casting of Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime. And while Phoenix has remained coy on whether he had signed on for the role, he did have some intriguing things to say about the character’s legacy and Heath Ledger‘s Oscar-winning turn.

How Justice League Should Have Ended

While Warner Bros. Pictures figures out how to proceed with the DC Extended Universe after the box office disappointment that was Justice League, the folks over at How It Should Have Ended are kicking the DC Comics superheroes while they’re down.

Not only do they take shots at the threads that began in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice but end up going nowhere in Justice League, but they also mock the awful villain Steppenwolf, and continue to harp on Superman’s awful mustache removal and more. Find out how Justice League should have ended below. Read More »

The Meg trailer

Jaws may have set the bar for killer shark movies, but even if nothing comes close to Steven Spielberg’s 1975 smash hit, shark films will never go out of style in Hollywood. Both The Shallows and 47 Meters Down performed well at the box office recently, and now we’re about to see The Meg, which pits a giant prehistoric beast against a cast that includes Jason Statham and Rainn Wilson.

Watch the first The Meg trailer below, and read about the experience of seeing the trailer in 4DX.
