captain fantastic

Captain Fantastic didn’t make our best of Sundance list earlier this year, but both Peter and Ethan enjoyed the film. Overall, the reviews were slightly mixed, and now having seen the trailer, it’s easy to see why. Captain Fantastic, which stars Viggo Mortensen (The Road), looks like a potentially overly quirky family drama, the kind of film we see a little too often, but maybe that’s not the case. Plenty of critics suggested the film is far more than that, and the trailer isn’t without promise.

Watch the Captain Fantastic trailer below.

Absolutely Fabulous Movie Trailer

It’s been 24 years since Absolutely Fabulous debuted on television in the United Kingdom. The series ended up lasting six seasons, but sporadically over the span of nearly 20 years. The second and third seasons arrived in 1994 and 1995, but the fourth season didn’t debut until 2001 with a fifth season in 2003 and the last sixth season arriving in 2011. Now the series is coming to the big screen.

The full length Absolutely Fabulous movie trailer has just arrived, showing off what Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are up to after all these years. Sadly, it looks like things aren’t going very well for the duo, and they don’t seem to be getting better after they accidentally kill beloved model Kate Moss at a posh party.

Yes, Keanu Reeves Voices Keanu the Cat in ‘Keanu’

keanu voice

The kidnapped kitten at the center of the new comedy Keanu is obviously named after Keanu Reeves, the seemingly immortal star of Speed, Point Break, The Matrix, and John Wick, but we now know that the actor himself has a tiny cameo in the film. Keanu Reeves plays Keanu the cat. Well, technically he voices Keanu the cat in a scene where a character hallucinates during a crazy drug trip. However, this cameo almost didn’t happen and we have Mr. Reeves’ sister to thank for its existence.

Adventures in Babysitting Trailer

For anyone who still has love for the 1987 comedy favorite Adventures in Babysitting, prepare yourself for a lot of eye-rolling as you watch the new trailer for the remake heading to Disney Channel this summer. This time there are two babysitters, played by Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) and Sofia Carson (Disney’s Descendants), traipsing around the city looking for one of the kids they’re supposed to be babysitting, who somehow gets lost.

The new Adventures in Babysitting trailer shows us more of the rap battle, in place of the blues club scene from the original movie, where the two babysitters perform an impromptu rap about how their night has gone awry. It’s not quite as endearing as the original for obvious reasons, but if you have any tweens in your household, they’ll probably love it. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

ghostbusters 5

Tomorrow is Administrative Professionals Day, or so the internet tells me. And as a gift to all the administrative professionals out there, Sony has dropped a Ghostbusters featurette spotlighting the team’s new administrative professional. Kevin is as dumb as he is handsome — and he’s played by Chris Hemsworth, so he is very, very handsome indeed. Which makes Kevin, as Kate McKinnon puts it, basically “a Ken Doll with the inside scooped out.” Watch the Ghostbusters Chris Hemsworth featurette below.  Read More »

Will Forte

Almost two weeks ago, principal photography began on David Wain‘s (Wet Hot American Summer) adaptation of A Futile and Stupid Gesture. Based on Josh Karp‘s best-selling book, the story follows National Lampoon co-founder Douglas Kenney, who’s played by Will Forte (MacGruber) in the biopic. Forte is surrounded by nothing but talent in this true-life story, which, according to him, we shouldn’t expect a sanitized version of.

While interviewing the actor for the upcoming comedy, Keanu, he opened up a bit biopic. Below, Will Forte discusses A Futile and Stupid Gesture.

Sony Opens the Book on a ‘Goosebumps’ Sequel

Goosebumps

At this point, it’s a given that if a studio movie based on a familiar property attains even a modest level of success, someone, somewhere has started thinking about a sequel. After all, Hollywood execs are in the business of making money — and if they’ve already shelled out huge sums of cash to scoop up a familiar brand, milking it for all it’s worth just makes financial sense.

So it should come as no surprise that, after the solid-but-not-great returns from Goosebumps last year, Sony is now in the process of putting together a Goosebumps 2Rob Letterman, who directed the first one, is in, as is screenwriter Darren Lemke. But what about Jack Black, who played Goosebumps author R.L. Stine?  Read More »
