Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales Clips

There hasn’t been enough inebriated action coming from Walt Disney Pictures, but that will change soon now that a new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel is arriving in theaters this summer.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales brings back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow for another round of high seas adventure and drunken antics. In a batch of new clips and TV spots from the sequel, Jack Sparrow gets in trouble with the law yet again, and he’s also being pursued by a cursed pirate hunter named Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). Plus, he finds himself accompanied by Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) the offspring of his previous partner in piracy, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom).

Resident Evil Reboot

The Resident Evil film franchise that starred Milla Jovovich and was directed entirely by filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson came to an end earlier this year with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. The video game movie series finale may have only grossed nearly $27 million at the domestic box office, but it raked in over $285 million internationally on a budget of just $40 million. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that a Resident Evil reboot is already being developed overseas.

The German production company Constantin Film is currently developing a Resident Evil reboot, and currently the plan is to have the story span six total movies, just like the film franchise that just concluded. This isn’t just putting the horse before the cart, this is throwing the cart halfway across the world before the horse has even learned to walk. Read More »

pirates of the caribbean 5 release date

Yes, there’s somehow a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie coming out later this month. But somehow, despite the fact that it’s been six years since the fourth film was released and On Stranger Tides seems to have left absolutely no cultural footprint whatsoever, the upcoming Dead Men Tell No Tales is apparently surprisingly good.

Below, you’ll find the first clip from the film, and learn the bizarre reason why star Johnny Depp reportedly threw out an early draft of the movie that featured a female villain.

War for the Planet of the Apes TV spots

If Matt ReevesWar for the Planet of the Apes is as good as its trailers make it out to be – and we have no reason to think it won’t live up to that high bar – that should put these movies in the conversation of the best cinematic trilogies ever made. The two films before this one, especially Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, are tremendous pieces of pop storytelling, and though the new one looks to take a darker turn, it’s exactly where this story has been heading from the start.

20th Century Fox has unveiled two new War for the Planet of the Apes TV spots as a nice chaser for the new trailer that dropped earlier this week. Check them out below.

The Mummy box office

Universal looks like they’re feeling pretty good about their universe of classic monsters. Long before The Mummy hits theaters and tries to get this universe started, the studio claimed two release dates – one in 2018, the other in 2019 – for two unknown monster movies. The release dates could be the Johnny Depp-led The Invisible Man, David Koep’s take on Bride of Frankenstein, or The Wolfman from writer Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners).

But do audiences want these classic monsters updated? We’ll have some idea next month when Alex Kurtzman‘s (Star Trek) film comes out, which is currently tracking to make $40 million its opening weekend.

Avengers Infinity War synopsis

Marvel Studios still has to release Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok this year after making a big splash with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but naturally, fans are keeping a watchful eye on the 2018 release schedule as their anticipation for those upcoming films continues to grow. Fanning those flames are two new synopses for Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War that have recently surfaced, and the new breakdowns indicate that things aren’t going to be easy for the studio’s costumed superheroes any time soon.

Twin Peaks refresher

I’m still shocked that David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks aired on a major television network – let alone in primetime. The series heavily influenced a lot of prestige TV that followed its cancellation after its second season back in 1991, but I can’t think of another show that’s ever run the gamut of styles and genres quite the way this one did. The original run of episodes was thrilling because we had absolutely no idea what kind of show it would be from one moment to the next. Twin Peaks was the absolute king of tonal shifts, often whipping from surreal to comedic, from melodramatic to genuinely heartbreaking, from profound to eye-rollingly dumb. This show contained multitudes. But through it all, it remained enigmatic, eccentric, exciting, and distinctly Lynchian – even when Lynch himself scaled back his involvement during the show’s questionable second season.

With the limited series revival heading to Showtime this weekend, now’s a good time for a refresher about what you need to know, some questions left unanswered, and a bit of good old-fashioned speculation about what we might see in the future. Grab a cup of damn fine coffee, a slice of cherry pie, and join me for a whirlwind trip to small town America in the Pacific Northwest.

In other casting news, Sally Hawkins will return as Vivienne Graham in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Below, learn more about the Mission: Impossible 6 cast and the next Godzilla film.

Why We're Killing Gunther header

I miss Taran Killam. Saturday Night Live has found itself in the spotlight because of the insane political climate we’re living in right now, but to me, the show has felt like it’s been missing something without his buoyant presence. While it seems like the comedian has disappeared off the face of the earth for moment, there’s good news: he’s been making his feature directorial debut on a film called Why We’re Killing Gunther, in which he co-stars with a little-known Austrian actor named Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The action-comedy doesn’t have distribution yet, but it’s being sold at Cannes right now and a first look image has been released. Grab your own handgun and join the standoff below.

War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

The Planet of the Apes prequel series is by far the best movie franchise currently playing cinemas, Star Wars excluded. A new trailer for War For the Planet of the Apes teases a conclusion with the tagline “Witness The End.” Does this mean the third installment will be the last? The War For the Planet of the Apes ending doesn’t necessarily mean an end for this franchise.
