power rangers casts elizabeth banks

Let’s just get this out of the way right now: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was a bad show. You liked it when you were a kid and remain fond of it now because nostalgia is nice and comforting, but let’s not pretend it is anything worthy of adoration in 2016. You, as human being of sound body and mind capable of going online and reading an article, should look upon Lionsgate’s upcoming Power Rangers movie with a certain amount of dread. This is what it means to be an adult. This and taxes and horrible weddings you must attend out of social obligation. I’m sorry. But it’s true.

And yet, the news that Elizabeth Banks has been cast as the lead villain in director Dean Israelite‘s upcoming film somehow manages to speak volumes about what kind of movie they’re making. I’ll say this much: if you insist on making a Power Rangers movie, casting someone as delightful as Banks is a step in the right direction.

LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens

The LEGO Star Wars video games have been some of the most fun you can have on a gaming console for people of all ages. And now that we’re entering a new era of Star Wars, it’s time for The Force Awakens to get the LEGO video game treatment. Today, the release of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens was announced by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm, and they did so with a trailer that is a goofy, shot-for-shot remake of the original teaser trailer. Watch it below. Read More »

Pandemic trailer

There are plenty of movies set during various zombie apocalypses, but Pandemic pulls you right into the thick of the action with a first-person POV. Rachel Nichols plays a doctor who arrives in Los Angeles to stop the epidemic from taking over the entire world — though based on the conventions of the genre, I’m going to go ahead and guess that her efforts will prove ultimately futile. Mekhi PhiferAlfie AllenPat Healy, and Missi Pyle also star. Check out the first Pandemic trailer after the jump. Read More »

tron video game

Almost a year ago, it was revealed that Disney was secretly working on a Tron video game and imaginations got fired up. Between this video game, Tron characters joining Disney Infinity, the new Tron Lightcycle Power Run ride at Shanghai Disneyland, and the hazy existence of Tron 3 on the horizon, it was a good time to be a fan of this fascinating, but wounded film series.

And then Tron 3 was canceled. And now, that video game looks to be a pretty straightforward “runner,” albeit one that makes good use of the series’ stunning visuals. Weep, Tron acolytes! For this is not the best time to be fan of this franchise.

10 cloverfield lane story

We were as surprised as the rest of you when that 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer arrived out of nowhere a few weeks ago. In an age where studios have their schedules laid out a decade in advance and start pushing trailers and posters 18 months before a movie is set to open, the sudden and dramatic reveal of very interesting genre film with some very interesting talent attached felt like a breath of fresh air. It’s not something everyone can pull off, but it’s a case of producer J.J. Abrams‘ patented “Mystery Box” philosophy actually doing what it is supposed to do.

And yet we still know very little about director Dan Trachtenberg‘s spiritual successor to Cloverfield, other than the fact that it’s set in an underground bunker where things seemingly go from bad to worse. Now, thanks to star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, we know a little bit more about the film’s plot and how it was made. But just a little bit more. After all, Abrams is known to implant small explosives in actors’ necks that go off when they say too much.
