Just last week, video game company Activision Blizzard announced the formation of their own Activision Blizzard Studios with the intention of bringing some of their biggest titles to film and television. They’re starting off with development of a Call of Duty film franchise as well as a Skylanders television series, but since the company also just picked up the company behind Candy Crush, it was only a matter of time before a Candy Crush movie became a reality.
Well, it took just a few days. Hollywood has already churned out a Candy Crush movie with Liam Neeson in the key role of Mr. Toffee, and a clip has just surfaced online. Read More »

Throughout the week of Back to the Future Day, there were tons of tribute videos, mash-ups, parodies and promotions happening to take advantage of the celebration of the fictional importance of October 21st, 2015. And even though we’ve had our last round of Back to the Future Bits to cover as much as we could regarding the important day in time travel history, this latest video was just too impressive to pass up.
One fan has updated Back to the Future Part II to take place in the real 2015. This isn’t like that satirical animated sketch that made fun of the real 2015 we live in now. Instead, this takes footage from the movie and updates it with a couple key 2015 details: Jurassic World and Donald Trump. And if you’re a Back to the Future Part II fan, you can guess where each of them come into play. Read More »
It’s no secret that Terminator Genisys wasn’t the hit that Paramount Pictures hoped it would be this past summer. The film only pulled in just under $90 million at the domestic box office, and while it raked in a surprising additional $350 million in international box office receipts (with the movie opening huge in China), it’s not enough to keep the studio from rethinking the future of the franchise.
But it’s not just the financial return that’s a problem, because the movie has a 23% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the worst rated movie in the Terminator franchise. And so, that makes the Terminator Genisys Honest Trailer quite the hilarious roast of this unnecessarily complex and unwanted sequel. Read More »
There are plenty of things that the James Bond franchise is known for, from gadgets to girls. And one of those iconic elements is the legion of fancy cars equipped with all sorts of goodies for 007 to use against his enemies. The only problem is that every single time Bond gets a new car, he ends up absolutely destroying it. And Stephen Colbert has had enough.
On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the talk show host revealed a new “clip” from Spectre, featuring a cameo from Colbert himself. Daniel Craig, as James Bond, is in need of a rental car as he’s desperate to escape from assassins. But before he gets a new vehicle, he has to go through all the red tape and rigmarole of applying to get one. You can guess what happens when Colbert asks for his name. Read More »
The final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is more than likely the biggest chunk of new footage we’ll see from the sci-fi sequel until the movie arrives in December. J.J. Abrams has stated no more trailers will be released, and only TV spots will be released from here on out. So you should enjoy that awesome tease as much as you can.
However, the folks at Screen Junkies want to make sure that we keep our hype in check with The Force Awakens Honest Trailer. They endlessly reference the prequel trilogy, making sure to remind us that those three movies are just as real as the original trilogy as far as canon is concerned. Read More »

There’s plenty of people out there who will be dressed up in costumes tonight for Halloween, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a restaurant that dressed up for the holiday. However, residents of Chicago won’t have such a difficult time finding out.
Anyone who has seen the Eddie Murphy comedy Coming to America knows that the restaurant McDowell’s, which is totally not a ripoff of McDonald’s at all, plays a key part in the movie. And now the restaurant is real (kinda). The hot dog joint known as The Wiener’s Circle (famous for having employees verbally harass each other and the customers late at night) has been given a makeover for the weekend to look like and operate as a McDowell’s franchise.

We’d say that last Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer got us a little emotional, but then we’d be lying. If we’re being honest, it got us a lot emotional — choked up, teary-eyed, quivering in anticipation, yelping with glee, and experiencing Proustian flashbacks to our childhoods. It felt like the emotions in our head were going nuts, and apparently the emotions in Riley’s head from Inside Out were experiencing the exact same thing. Watch the Inside Out Star Wars reaction video after the jump. Read More »
There are plenty of new iterations of Ghostbusters coming up. Paul Feig has his female-led reboot with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones on the way, with additional rumblings of a spin-off featuring Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum as a new team of male Ghostbusters. And there’s an animated Ghostbusters film in the works at Sony as well.
But we’ve yet to hear of any new TV projects bringing Ghostbusters to the small screen anytime soon. However, once the studio gets a look at this fan-made Ghostbusters sitcom opening credits sequence, you can bet the wheels inside some executives’ heads are going to start turning. Read More »
It’s been 26 years since Spike Lee‘s provocative Do the Right Thing debuted, and since Hollywood has been digging deep into the past for sequels, reboots and remakes, it only makes sense that they would revive the racially charged drama.
However, in case you haven’t noticed, Brooklyn has changed a lot since 1989. As Jimmy Kimmel noted during one of his episodes being taped in New York last week, “There used to be muggers right in this neighborhood stealing old ladies’ purses. Now those old lady purses are being worn ironically by hipsters in the area.” And that’s exactly what inspired the trailer for Do the Right Thing 2, starring Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel and more white people.
