Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Long Haul Trailer

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid film franchise was one that families enjoyed for three years – there was Diary of a Wimpy Kid in 2010, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules in 2011 and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days in 2012. But it’s been five years since the last movie, so the young cast members who played lead characters Greg (Zachary Gordon) and his best friend Rowley (Robert Capron) are too old to keep the series going. That means we’re basically getting a franchise reboot with a whole new cast.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul continues to follow the adventures of Greg Heffley (now played by Jason Drucker) and his whole family, including his brother Rodrick (Charlie Wright), mother Susan (Alicia Silverstone), father Frank (Tom Everett Scott), and baby brother Manny (played by twins Wyatt & Dylan Walters). Oh, and Rowley is still around, this time played by Owen Asztalos.

Watch the Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Long Haul trailer below to see how the new cast works out. Read More »

‘Fargo’ Season 3 Teaser Declares War on Christmas

fargo season 3 teaser

Every article about FX’s Fargo series has to begin with the observation that this series had no right to work as well as it does, so here we go: FX’s Fargo series has no right to work as well as it does and creator/showrunner Noah Hawley can probably be filed away for future reference under “miracle worker.” And because two acclaimed seasons of pitch black comedy, criminal idiocy, and startling violence (not to mention 36 Emmy nominations) are not enough, the show is set to return in just a few months. And the first teaser has arrived.

Daniel Kaluuya interview

In Get Out, Daniel Kaluuya doesn’t play the typical thriller/horror movie lead. The character makes some wise decisions as things go wrong. He feels real, his backstory feels real, his relationship feels real, and his emotions feel real. Kaluuya isn’t playing a cardboard character waiting to get the ax; he plays somebody the audience understands and roots for.

With his directorial debut, Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) has given Kaluuya a role with a genuine interior life. The actor is known for his time on the popular drama Skins, but he’s had some memorable performances over the past few years, including a supporting role in Sicario and an impassioned performance in Black Mirror.

I spoke with Kaluuya, who also has a part in Marvel’s Black Panther, about working with Peele, on-set improvisation, and the significance of the “sunken place” in Get Out.

2017 oscar predictions

Predicting the Oscars is an art. You can’t look at the nominees and pick personal favorites. You can’t side with the movies that you think deserve to win. You have to look over those 27 categories and put yourself in the shoes of 6,000 voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science and think “What are they going to vote for?”

So welcome to the second annual /Film Oscar Predictions Contest, where we put our heads together to predict the winners of the biggest movie awards show of the year. Feel free to play along.

Jordan Peele pic

With his directorial debut, Get OutJordan Peele exhibits remarkable range as a writer and director. His film, which comes from Blumhouse Productions, works on multiple levels. Whether he’s nailing a laugh or a scare, shooting an intimate scene between a couple by a lake, or just delivering the unexpected, Peele hardly feels like a rookie in the director’s chair.

He started writing Get Out three years ago, but his journey towards getting behind the camera has been a long time coming. The co-creator of Key & Peele has been dreaming of helming a movie for many years. Now, he finally has done it with a thoughtful thriller that’s always slyly moving at full speed towards an unforgettable third act.

Below, check out our Jordan Peele interview.

High School

I imagine at least a few of you reading this are in high school. Maybe you’re even in class at this very moment. Perhaps you’re bored in computer class, anticipating your daily extra-long bathroom break and casual stroll down the hallway. What if the next time you’re taking a little break from class, you notice the whole school happens to be going underwater? That’d be pretty freaky, right? Well, that’s the premise of the aptly titled My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea, an animated film featuring the voices of Jason Schwartzman and Lena Dunham.

Below, watch the My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea trailer.

Their Finest Trailer

Hollywood loves making movies about making movies, and even though Lone Scherfig‘s World War II romantic dramedy Their Finest actually hails from across the pond, it’s still looking for that sweet spot of nostalgia for classic filmmaking crossed with the hardships of war.

After playing at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and the Sundance Film Festival just last month, Their Finest follows the making of a movie about the heroic events of a couple sisters at Dunkirk who save hundreds of soldiers. Sadly, it’s not anywhere near as compelling as we hope Christopher Nolan’s movie about Dunkirk will be, but Their Finest is coming to US theaters this spring, delivering lighthearted laughs, sappy romance, and stilted war drama. Watch the new Their Finest trailer after the jump to get a taste of the film. Read More »
