Since the main reason for the popularity of Baywatch back in the 90s was the slow-motion running of Pamela Anderson and the rest of her lifeguard crew, you would think that the first look from the forthcoming film adaptation would employ the same tactics. But this is 2016, and the big stars of the Baywatch movie are Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. They’re not doing any slow-motion running, and they’re not even shirtless. But this Baywatch first look photo will definitely have you wanting them to give you mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, regardless of your sexual preference. Read More »

If you told us a year ago that I’d be interested in a Baywatch movie, I would have given you a serious case of side-eye before tracking down a more trustworthy person to engage in conversation. But here we are – I have no idea what a comedic take on this immensely popular (but oh-so-terrible) drama series starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron looks like, but I know that I’m very curious to find out.
Now, another intriguing performer has joined the cast. Priyanka Chopra is best know in the Western world for her role on ABC’s new series Quantico, but she’s a huge movie star in her native India. Naturally, her next gig involves menacing a bunch of buff and busty life guards as the villain of Baywatch.

Nearly a year ago, we found out that Sony was going to take The Smurfs in an all-new direction on the big screen. Instead of continuing the live-action animation hybrid franchise, they opted to have Sony Pictures Animation develop an all-new animated film that would essentially reboot the blue creatures on film. Now the film has a title and more voices to add to its roster.
The movie is called Smurfs: The Lost Village, and it will follow Smurfette (Demi Lovato) on a journey to find out what her purpose in life is, and why she’s the only girl in the village. But she won’t be alone, as her three brothers Brainy, Hefty and Clumsy will be joining her. But who will be voicing the sibling trio? Find out below along with the first Smurfs The Lost Village images. Read More »

Just as Bill Adama refused to give up on humanity, even after countless Cylon attacks and supply outages and political disputes, Hollywood is not giving up on the notion of a Battlestar Galactica movie, no matter how many false starts they’ve had in the past.

Joining the barrage of remakes and reboots, the action adventure TV series MacGyver will be making a comeback. But what’s unique about the return of this property is that it has both a film adaptation and a TV series reboot in the works at the same time.
Just a few days ago, CBS officially ordered a pilot episode for a new MacGyver series, inspired by the show that ran on ABC from 1985 to 1992. In addition, today Lionsgate revealed that they’re working on a MacGyver movie, something that has been kicking around Hollywood for awhile, never finding any firm ground at various studios over the years. Find out more about each of these new MacGyver incarnations below. Read More »

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.

Last fall, just before Nickelodeon announced a new programming block that would bring fan favorite shows from the 90s to TeenNick, there were rumblings of a NickToons movie that would be a hybrid of live-action and animation. We’ve heard nothing about the project since then, but that changed today as the project landed a director in the form of Jared Hess, the man who was behind the camera for the cult comedy Napoleon Dynamite.
