Every article about FX’s Fargo series has to begin with the observation that this series had no right to work as well as it does, so here we go: FX’s Fargo series has no right to work as well as it does and creator/showrunner Noah Hawley can probably be filed away for future reference under “miracle worker.” And because two acclaimed seasons of pitch black comedy, criminal idiocy, and startling violence (not to mention 36 Emmy nominations) are not enough, the show is set to return in just a few months. And the first teaser has arrived.

Marvel Studios provided confirmation that the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers would meet on the big screen in Avengers: Infinity War when they released a video after the first day of shooting had commenced. We still have over a year to wait before that epic, live-action team-up takes place, but both of those heroic groups will actually meet much sooner…in cartoon form.

We’re a month away from the release of director Dean Israelite‘s new Power Rangers movie and I still have no idea what to make of it. Sure, it looks slick and handsomely made, but is it the movie old school fans want to see? Is it the movie new, younger fans want to see? Is a movie that anyone who has never watched the series in any of its incarnations wants to see? This is an area where I find myself standing outside of the bubble, looking on without a passionate opinion.
This much is certain: the new international trailer (which arrives on the heels of a new domestic trailer) is full of all kinds of action and mayhem and giant robot animals fighting giant monsters. Sure. Why not? Those are all words that I tend to enjoy on their own.

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) ain’t the family man he once was. Toretto has abandoned his old crew for Cipher (Charlize Theron), who somehow convinces him to play for a different team. The reason for his change of heart likely won’t be revealed until F. Gary Gray‘s (Straight Outta Compton) sequel, The Fate of the Furious, hits theaters, but a new look at the gigantic popcorn movie teases the start of Dom and Cipher’s relationship in the film.
Below, watch The Fate of the Furious international trailer.

With apologies to my loved ones, the best Christmas gift I got last year was the Sense8 holiday special. It had been over a year since the first season hit Netflix, and the two-hour extravaganza had everything I’d hoped for from the return — drama, action, romance, tons of earnest metaphysical nonsense, and, yes, even a meticulously choreographed orgy. Best of all, it heralded the arrival of even more episodes to come in the new year, with Sense8 season 2 scheduled to hit in May.
Of course, May’s still a ways away. But Netflix isn’t leaving us completely high and dry. They’ve just dropped a big batch of Sense8 season 2 images, teasing more good times, more bad times, and lots of sweet cluster meetings that are probably going to make me cry. Flip through the new photos below.

I imagine at least a few of you reading this are in high school. Maybe you’re even in class at this very moment. Perhaps you’re bored in computer class, anticipating your daily extra-long bathroom break and casual stroll down the hallway. What if the next time you’re taking a little break from class, you notice the whole school happens to be going underwater? That’d be pretty freaky, right? Well, that’s the premise of the aptly titled My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea, an animated film featuring the voices of Jason Schwartzman and Lena Dunham.
Below, watch the My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea trailer.

Hollywood loves making movies about making movies, and even though Lone Scherfig‘s World War II romantic dramedy Their Finest actually hails from across the pond, it’s still looking for that sweet spot of nostalgia for classic filmmaking crossed with the hardships of war.
After playing at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and the Sundance Film Festival just last month, Their Finest follows the making of a movie about the heroic events of a couple sisters at Dunkirk who save hundreds of soldiers. Sadly, it’s not anywhere near as compelling as we hope Christopher Nolan’s movie about Dunkirk will be, but Their Finest is coming to US theaters this spring, delivering lighthearted laughs, sappy romance, and stilted war drama. Watch the new Their Finest trailer after the jump to get a taste of the film. Read More »

If you’re a Star Wars fan and you enjoy hanging cool art on your walls and you’ll be in the vicinity of Austin, Texas during SXSW, you’re in luck. Mondo is putting together a new gallery show to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, with artist Mike Mitchell contributing a number of his signature portraits depicting characters from across the saga.

Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest movie stars in the world right now, and he’s all about using his fame to help other people. One of his new endeavors allowed him to not only help convicts who need a second chance at life, but also make a new film to show people that some prisoners just need a push in the right direction in order to get back on track.
HBO’s new documentary Rock and a Hard Place (which is not only a pun but also a Rolling Stones reference) follows Dwayne Johnson as he assists with the famous Miami-Dade County Corrections & Rehabilitation Boot Camp, which has one of the highest success rates with their graduates. But their second chance at life doesn’t come easy, because it’s as much of a punishment as it is rehabilitation.

Right now you’ll find a slew of stand-up comedy specials that are available exclusively on Netflix. The streaming service has become a stellar home for new stand-up specials from the best comedians working today. Over the past few months, they’ve only solidified their dedication to the craft by doling out new deals for Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld.
Today, we have two more reasons to be excited about Netflix’s championing of stand-up comedy. First, Sleepwalk with Me and Don’t Think Twice writer and director Mike Birbiglia has an all-new stand-up special called Thank God for Jokes coming to the streaming service next week, and the first trailer has just been unleashed. Second, Louis C.K. has been added to the roster of comedians with deals for exclusive stand-up specials on Netflix. Read More »
