There have been plenty of revisionist takes on classic fairytales lately, from Maleficent to Snow White and the Huntsman, and Hollywood is on the lookout for new ideas like this all the time.
Enter Clint Howard, character actor extraordinaire and brother of director Ron Howard. He has a pitch for a movie that is the “biggest, newest, most box office crushing-est hero in town.” She’s got a truckload of freckles, two pigtails and can lift a horse with one hand. That’s right, it’s Pippi Longstocking, brought to life as a vigilante played by The Fifth Element and Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich.

Last night brought the premiere of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, the third installment in the intentionally stupid disaster comedy about sharks terrorizing and killing people as they’re blown around by tornadoes.
While fans were expecting the usual terrible special effects, “celebrity” cameos and brutal deaths, they probably weren’t expecting a cliffhanger ending. But last night, the final shot of Tara Reid‘s character April Wexler was interrupted by a cut to black and directions that fans would be in control of her fate, which would be revealed in Sharknado 4. It’s like the late-’80s “Death in the Family” story stunt DC Comics pulled for Batman, where readers could call in to vote on whether Robin lived or died at the hands of the Joker.

Summer may almost be over, but the latest road trip with the Griswold family in Vacation doesn’t begin until next week. Ed Helms plays a grown up Rusty Griswold, taking his wife (Christina Applegate) and their two sons on a trip in order to help bring them closer together, just like when he was a kid.
Now a final NSFW red band trailer makes one last attempt to get audiences on board the new family truckster for a trip that is more raunchy and rowdy than any of the preceding National Lampoon titles. This isn’t the best trailer for the movie, but it does have some amusing moments, especially from then new Griswold kids.

This summer, we’ve seen Judy Greer as a mom in Ant-Man and Jurassic World and heard her as a mom in Tomorrowland, which means maybe those films are all actually part of the shared Judy Greer Universe.
But 2015 won’t merely be the year of Greer toiling in supporting roles as a caregiver. She looks like she gets to have a lot of fun and enjoy top billing in Addicted to Fresno, playing a sex addict who tries to get her life together, but accidentally kills a guy and then robs a sex shop, neither of which really helps her plight.
The film also features Natasha Lyonne and a great supporting cast including Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Jessica St. Clair, Molly Shannon, Michael Hitchcock, and Ron Livingston. Check out the funny Addicted to Fresno trailer below. Read More »
In case you hadn’t heard, The Muppets are coming back to television this fall with a brand new series on ABC. Taking a cue from shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation, the series will be a mockumentary style show following the Muppets as they create a new series for ABC. Yeah, it’s pretty meta, just like all the rest of their productions.
The Muppets recently put on a hilarious panel at Comic-Con in San Diego, complete with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and more. (You can watch it all right here.) One thing that can’t be seen in the panel video is the 10-minute pitch video that was shown to ABC in order to land the series deal. But thankfully, the television studio has released the pitch video for us all to see, and it’s fantastic.

Sleeper agents are terrifying when they’re enemy forces, but we love making heroes out of the home-grown version. (See: all those Bourne films.) But what about when the sleeper agent is a stoner working at a convenience store? In American Ultra, Jesse Eisenberg is that guy, and when he’s “activated” via a code phrase he finds himself killing strangers with spoons and freaking out his girlfriend, played by Kristen Stewart. But at least, as this new American Ultra trailer shows, all the violence also gives them the opportunity to enjoy a romantic bit of couples tazing. Read More »
Chris Columbus wrote both Gremlins and Goonies before he segued into directing, and he is involved in reboots of both those films. Both, particularly Gremlins, have been the object of a great deal of talk for several years, with (thankfully) no concrete results to show for the development efforts.
With the new Columbus film, Pixels, hitting theaters this coming week, the director is out on the press circuit saying that both ’80s reboots are fill in full swing, at least on the development side. The good news is that the process is a very slow one, so we probably don’t have to worry about either film arriving for a while yet. Read More »
