Tom Hiddleston is already a Disney prince of sorts, but he’ll dive even deeper into the Mouse House next spring. A few months back, it was announced that Hiddleston and Christina Hendricks had signed on for The Pirate Fairy, a sort of Peter Pan spinoff about Tinkerbell (Mae Whitman — yes, her), a badass fairy named Zarina (Hendricks), and the cabin boy (James) she falls for.
Unfortunately for Zarina, the object of her affections may not be quite as sweet and innocent as he looks. It turns out his name is James Hook, as in Captain Hook, although The Pirate Fairy takes place before that crocodile took his hand. A new trailer has just arrived, and you can check it out after the jump.

Craig Gillespie‘s Fright Night underwhelmed at the box office, but it did well enough that someone decided to greenlight a follow-up. Just, y’know, not one that actually makes it into theaters.
Though the title suggests it’s a sequel, the direct-to-DVD feature Fright Night 2: New Blood comes across more like a remake of the 2011 Fright Night — which, of course, was itself a remake of the the 1985 film by Tom Holland. To make things more confusing, it seems to have no connection with the other Fright Night sequel from 1988.
The big difference in New Blood is that Jerry, the seductive bloodsucker played by Colin Farrell in the last incarnation, is now Gerri, an even more seductive lady bloodsucker played by Jaime Murray. Watch her make out with lingerie-clad victims and lick blood off of a sword after the jump.

Have you ever noticed that a lot of those crappy mockbuster movies have a title that begin with the letters A, B, C or D? Me neither, but now that Gizmodo mentioned it, it does seem a bit strange. Find out the answer after the jump.

Dwayne Johnson may be “franchise Viagra,” having helped prop up the Journey to the Center of the Earth, Fast and Furious, and G.I. Joe movie series over the past couple of years, but even he can’t keep Dito Montiel‘s Empire State from going straight to DVD.
The film’s lack of a theatrical run is even more surprising when we look at the rest of the cast list: The Hunger Games‘ Liam Hemsworth leads, while Michael Angarano and Emma Roberts play supporting roles. As starry ensembles go, it’s not Les Misérables, but it’s a combination that sounds on paper like it should sell tickets.
Then again, even the brightest, most talented stars can only do so much to elevate an otherwise mediocre film. And while the first trailer isn’t quite terrible, it is damningly generic. Hit the jump to check it out.

Since breaking out on Arrested Development a decade ago, Michael Cera has gotten a lot of flack for his tendency to stick to the George-Michael Bluth type — awkward, timid, but fundamentally sweet. But just as George-Michael has matured into a more confident, independent young man in the new fourth season of the series, Cera’s started to branch out into darker, stranger material.
Among his intriguing recent work is Sebastián Silva‘s psychological thriller Magic Magic, in which he plays one of several jerks that poor fragile Alicia (Juno Temple) has the misfortune of getting stuck with during a Chilean vacation. Emily Browning, Agustín Silva, and Catalina Sandino Moreno also star. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

Fans of the classic animated series The Flintstones should always remember this: You’ll always have the original. After a set of live-action films in the Nineties, a new animated, direct-to-DVD film is now set to go into production aimed at release in 2015. Here’s the kicker, though. It’ll be produced by World Wrestling Entertainment and feature the voices of WWE superstars like CM Punk, John Cena and Chairman Vince McMahon. The wrestlers aren’t voicing Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty and the gang, however. Those characters are just going to to attend their first prehistoric wrestling match featuring new characters named Vince McMagma, John Cenastone and CM Punkrock.
This marks the second team up between WWE and Warner Bros., who currently owns the Flintstones rights. The companies co-produced an animated Scooby-Doo film set at Wrestlemania that’ll be released on DVD on March. Read More »
