My Little Pony movie trailer

While some people are excited about the prospect of seeing the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC Extended Universe brought to the big screen, there are those who might be even more excited by the prospect of seeing some adorable, colorful, friendly little equines finally make their way to movie theaters.

Westworld Season 2

Season two of Westworld begins this July. The next chapter in Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy‘s series won’t pick up exactly where season one left off. There’s going to be a bit of a time jump, but of course, we’ll see the effects of what unfolded in the season one finale. According to Lisa Joy,  the stakes and scope are now going to “increase dramatically.”

Below, read what Joy and Nolan had to say about some of their plans for Westworld season 2.

Power Rangers Honest Trailer

Lionsgate made their attempt at bringing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back to the big screen earlier this year, and now that the movie is available on home video, Screen Junkies has taken some cracks at the teenage superhero team with a new Honest Trailer.

Power Rangers took quite the serious approach to the goofy TV series that was imported from Japan and adapted for American audiences in the 1990s, and Honest Trailers wastes no time pointing out how this movie spends 90 minutes on having the titular heroes bond and train, only to conclude with a 30-minute big budget version of the TV series. Should we really be surprised though?

R-rated Scooby Doo

The live-action Scooby Doo is now 15 years old. Originally, the filmmakers were going for a PG-13 rating, but after filming was completed and an early cut got an R-rating from the MPAA, Warner Bros. decided to turn the raunchy teen comedy into a movie for children. Scooby Doo‘s writer, James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), thought it was a mistake, but a decade and a half later, he still looks back on the experience with a great deal of fondness.

Below, learn more about the R-rated Scooby Doo film we never saw.

Fargo The Law of Inevitability Review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

The blue streak continues on Fargo. Life has never been worse for Sy Feltz (Michael Stuhlbarg), Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor), and maybe Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who’s mysterious and world-weary enough to indicate season 3 of Fargo is far from her first bad time in Minnesota. Noah Hawley‘s FX series experiences the shockwave of last week’s shocking episode in “The Law of Inevitability,” in which Chief Moe Dammick (Shea Whigham) enlightens us on the mashed potato theory and how he proceeds when the sun is out.

Below, check out our latest Fargo review.

The Jetsons movie

A new big screen adaptation of The Jetsons has been in the works since before /Film even existed. Around the time the live-action adaptation of The Flintstones was released in the ’90s, there was chatter about giving the same treatment to The Jetsons. In the mid-to-late ’00s, Robert Rodriguez was attached to the project, but he seems to have fallen away in recent years in favor of a new animated adaptation of the classic cartoon instead.

The last we heard anything about The Jetsons as a film property was that an animated movie was in the works at Warner Bros. Animation Group with Matt Lieberman scripting the adaptation. Now the project is getting another kick in the space pants with Sausage Party co-director Conrad Vernon coming on to develop the new take on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

Charlie's Angels reboot

It’s been 14 years since the world witnessed Charlie’s Angels operatives on the big screen in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, but in 2015, Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks nabbed the director’s chair for a film reboot at Sony Pictures. Last year, Banks hired Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Auburn to pen the screenplay, but a new report indicates that Banks – who is also producing – has signed a new duo of writers to take a run at it.

Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, the creators of Netflix’s cartel series Narcos, are on board to rewrite the script, and whispers about a fascinating casting rumor are currently circulating online as well. Learn more about the Charlie’s Angels reboot below.

Baywatch Review

It’s time for the second big studio comedy of the summer to hit theaters in the form of Baywatch, the big screen adaptation of the popular TV series from the 1990s that starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.

Hitting the beach are Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a couple of musclehead lifeguards who get caught up in some high stakes action and danger. All the trailers have teased an action comedy in the same vein of 21 Jump Street, but if the first Baywatch reviews are any indication, then it’s nowhere near as good, and it barely keeps itself afloat.

Read on for the Baywatch review round-up after the jump. Read More »

Power Rangers TV Spots

Lionsgate had big plans for the Power Rangers series. In the lead-up to the first film’s release, CEO Jon Feltheimer teased four (or five or six) sequels. The message was clear: they were on board for the long run and the glossy revival of the nostalgic favorite would be one of their next big franchises. After all, something has to fill that Hunger Games-shaped hole in their line-up.

And while Power Rangers got off to a strong start at the domestic box office, it never really took off in the way Lionsgate wanted. Now, it’s starting to look like international numbers will seal the fate of Power Rangers 2 (and Power Rangers 3 and Power Rangers 4 and…).
