Over the past decade, Matt Dillon has made plenty of movies that no one really cared about. Old Dogs, Armored, Takers, Pawn Shop Chronicles and The Art of the Steal have all featured Matt Dillon, and they’re all movies that you either forgot about or never knew existed to begin with. However, with a key role on the popular Fox series Wayward Pines, the career of Matt Dillon has had a bit of a resurgence, and now Lars von Trier will try to help that along.
Matt Dillon has been set to play London’s notorious notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper in The House That Jack Built, a film from Nymphomaniac and Antichrist director Lars von Trier following the murderer’s development over 12 years. Read More »

The Sicario sequel is bringing in some high-profile talent to aid in the war on drugs. Catherine Keener has just signed on for Soldado, joining Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin who are reprising their roles from the first film. Stefano Sollima (Gomorra) is directing this one, replacing original Sicario director Denis Villeneuve. Read More »
Last night during The Walking Dead, Sony Pictures premiered the trailer for Life. No, this isn’t the Anton Corbijn-directed Robert Pattinson biography of the Life Magazine photographer from last year. This is the 2017 science fiction thriller about an international space crew that discovers life on Mars. Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Child 44) and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland, Deadpool), the film features Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare, Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine) and Ryan Reynolds. Watch the Life trailer now embedded after the jump.

Inferno is similar to Ron Howard‘s past Dan Brown adaptations, The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. Again, there’s top-tier talent both in front of and behind the camera, but the final result doesn’t reach the level of quality we typically expect from Howard and Tom Hanks. Their latest collaboration is held back by some tedious exposition, repetitive foot chases, some underwhelming twists and turns, and one sorely underused talented actor.

3% is a new thriller series from Netflix set in “a world sharply divided between progress and devastation, where people are given a chance to make it to the ‘better side’, but only 3% of the candidates succeed.” Sounds like a compelling concept. Watch Netflix’s 3% trailer now after the jump.

In February, I wrote a post theorizing that the JJ Abrams-produced Julius Onah-directed space station set thriller God Particle might be the third film in a Cloverfield film series. I even asked Abrams this directly, which he slyly responded, “Well, that remains to be seen.” Today my prediction has been confirmed: God Particle is Cloverfield 3.

Now that M. Night Shyamalan has crafted a relationship with the horror hit machine that is Blumhouse Productions, he appears to be back in a big way. The Visit was a satisfying, suspenseful thriller last year, and now the director of The Sixth Sense is back with another unsettling entry to his filmography.
Split follows James McAvoy as Kevin, a man with dissociative identity disorder giving him no less than 23 different personalities. This creates nothing short of a perplexing nightmare for three girls (Anya Taylor-Joy, Jessica Sula and Haley Lu Richardson) who are kidnapped and held prisoner by Kevin for something presumably sinister. A new Split trailer shows off more of some of the other personalities we’ll see James McAvoy inhabit in the thriller. It’s not quite as stirring as the first trailer, but it does give us a better idea of how much more dangerous Kevin can become. Read More »

The John Wick: Chapter 2 trailer released earlier this month promised more of everything we loved about the first John Wick: intense action, stylish visuals, and Keanu Reeves being an all-around badass. But that doesn’t mean we should just expect a retread of the last film, stresses Chad Stahelski. The director suggests he’s taken a page out of the Aliens playbook by going in a different direction with the sequel. Read More »
