Plenty of classic TV shows have been given the big screen treatment. The Brady Bunch got a pair of spoof-esque movies, while The Addams Family got a couple movies that were a little more earnest and charming. Plus The A-Team and 21 Jump Street got two very different big screen updates, just to name a couple more. Now one more classic comedy series wants a crack at movie theaters.
New Line is currently in talks to pick up the rights to the comedy series Three’s Company, which starred John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers. Find out more about the potential for a Three’s Company movie after the jump. Read More »
Earlier this year, the first image from the reboot of Power Rangers arrived, showing off the new teenagers who will be endowed with an ancient power that will allow them to protect their city from a ruthless villain hellbent on conquering Earth. We didn’t get to see our new heroes in their power suits. Instead, they were posing for an image that easily could have been a Hollister ad.
But now we finally have an idea of the style this Power Rangers reboot will be aiming for, with a first look photo of Pitch Perfect and The Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. The original version of the villain can be seen above, but the new Rita Repulsa looks much different, like a grimy version of Poison Ivy or a new alien from the saucy Species franchise.

If there’s one big screen revival of a TV show to get excited about this year, it’s the return of Ricky Gervais as The Office boss man David Brent. The awkward former manager of the Wernham Hogg Paper Company isn’t slinging paper anymore. Instead, he’s following his dreams by trying to become a famous singer songwriter. But in the first David Brent: Life on the Road teaser trailer, it’s clear that he hasn’t quite escaped life in an office just yet, and he’s still got the gift of making people supremely uncomfortable.

Animal Kingdom was one of the breakout debut films of 2010. Director David Michôd‘s intimate crime thriller not only created future opportunities for himself, but also his cast, which included Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn, and more. It’s an excellent drama, one that’s now being adapted for television.
Below, watch the Animal Kingdom TV series trailer.

Production is currently underway on Baywatch, the feature comedy adaptation of the popular TV series from the 90s that puts Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the lead roles. We’ve already gotten a first look at the duo on set and in their lifeguard gear, but both of the stars have been posting photos to Instagram from the set over the past week, showing us even more from the set.
The latest round finally gives us our official first look at Sports Illustrated model Kelly Rohrbach stepping into the red swimsuit once filled out by Pamela Anderson as C.J. Parker. Even though this is a comedic adaptation of the TV series, it’s easy to see that they’ve kept the sex appeal intact as well. Check out the new Baywatch movie photos below. Read More »
Even though Pamela Anderson is still figuring some things out regarding a potential appearance in the forthcoming Baywatch movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, one of the stars of the original TV series isn’t wasting any time locking down a role in the movie.
A David Hasselhoff Baywatch cameo of some sort has been confirmed, and this comes straight from the set of the movie from Dwayne Johnson himself. So there’s no need to hassle The Hoff about whether or not he’ll be part of the movie. Read More »
The cast of the Baywatch movie is already squared away with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron leading the feature comedy adaptation of the popular 90s TV series, and we just got a first look at them on the beach. The two ripped actors are also joined by some lovely ladies, including Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions), model Kelly Rohrbach (a Sports Illustrated model), and Priyanka Chopra (Quantico). And now one of the stars of the original series might be appearing in the movie as well.
Pamela Anderson was one of the biggest reasons that people tuned in to Baywatch. The series skyrocketed her to fame as one of the most desired women of the 90s, and apparently there are negotiations to get her to make an appearance. But there’s a chance it may not happen. Find out what’s going on with the Pamela Anderson Baywatch cameo below. Read More »
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.
