Michael Bay on the set of Transformers: The Last Knight - World’s Loneliest Dog In Transformers
What happened when filmmaker Michael Bay read an article about “The World’s Loneliest Dog?” The action director decided to give her a role in his latest film, Transformers: The Last Knight. The homeless epileptic Staffordshire Bull Terrier named “Freya” had been passed over for adoption at the Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre more than 18,000 times over six years, despite being a “very loving dog.” See the video of Freya making her big screen debut alongside Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins after the jump.

phantasm ravager trailer

Don Coscarelli‘s Phantasm is one of my favorite horror movies, a dreamy, surreal, intentionally obtuse and beautifully frustrating gem that has developed a passionate cult following over the decades since its 1979 release. The first three sequels (which arrived in 1988, 1994, and 1998) are a more of a mixed bag, ranging wildly in quality even as they maintain the original’s lunatic ambition and imagination. I may not love the sequels as I love the original, but man, I’m sure glad they’re around.

That brings us to Phantasm: Ravager, the fifth and final film in the series that is set to make its world premiere at Fantastic Fest this weekend. The film’s trailer has arrived to celebrate its impending screening and…well, let’s just say that this looks like one for the fans.

john wick chapter 2 poster

Here’s my John Wick story. I attended an early morning Fantastic Fest press screening of Chad Stahelski and David Leitch convinced that I was about to watch a B-movie that was one hair away from going straight to DVD. When the credits rolled, I was fairly sure that I had just watched one of the best action movies in years and the rare movie to fully understand how to fully utilize the very specific weapon that is Keanu Reeves. Embargoed, I spent the rest of the day waiting for the film to premiere before an audience of real people, concerned that I was too tired to know what I was watching and that I was wrong about John Wick. Two years later, I’ve watched it at least a dozen times. It’s near-perfect cinematic comfort food. 

And oh yeah, a new poster for John Wick: Chapter 2 has arrived, and I’m not even going to try to contain my excitement for what is easily one of my most anticipated movies of 2017.

Bad Santa 2 trailer

The original Bad Santa did such a great job of balancing salty, sour, bitter, and sweet that it almost looked easy. But with the arrival of Bad Santa 2 this fall, we may get a better look at just how difficult it can be to pull off that trick.

There’s some key talent returning in front of the camera. Billy Bob Thornton returns to star as safecracker / mall Santa Willie Soke, along with Tony Cox as Willie’s partner in crime Marcus and Brett Kelly as Willie’s young friend Thurman Merman. Behind the camera, though, there are some major changes. Mark Waters steps up to the plate as director this time around, replacing Terry Zwigoff who helmed the first film, while Shauna Cross and Johnny Rosenthal step in for Glenn Ficarra and John Requa as screenwriters.

Can they replicate the foul-mouthed hilarity and surprising tenderness of the first film? Watch the NSFW Bad Santa 2 trailer below and judge for yourself.  Read More »
