“The time is meow.” That’s what the guys from Broken Lizard have to say about Super Troopers 2. After years of teasing fans and assuring them the film is on the way, the sequel is finally coming. 20th Century Fox has agreed to distribute the film but they need to see that the fans care. To show that fan support, Broken Lizard has started a Super Troopers 2 Indiegogo page hoping to raise at least $2 million. If it doesn’t raise $2 million, the film won’t happen. If they raise more, they’ll do bigger stuff in the movie. The hope is to shoot this summer and release in early 2016.
Below, read more about the Super Troopers 2 release and Indiegogo.
UPDATED: The initial $2 million was reached in a single day. This movie is happening. Now it’s just about how big the movie can get. Read more below. Read More »

The new Fantastic Four poster gave us our best look at the team yet. Johnny’s on fire, Sue is disappearing, and the big bad rocks of The Thing were on full display. However, we only saw them from behind. Common sense (and the trailer) tell us what Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara are going to look like from the front. Jamie Bell as The Thing, however, is a bit more uncertain. Well, a Fantastic Four fan found an alternate poster outdoors and put the photo on Instagram. It’s since gone viral as it finally gives us an official look at The Thing.
Below, check out the first The Thing Fantastic Four image and see how the latest Fantastic Four poster borrowed from one of the biggest video game franchises in the world, Halo. Read More »
For months we’ve wondered what Jesse Eisenberg was going to look like as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Would he be bald? Would he show some other distinguishing characteristic? Now, exactly one year until the release of the film, the first official image of Eisenberg in character is out, and he’s pretty much as expected: Bald and mean. The pic also just shows a disembodied head so we don’t learn too much else beyond that. Check out the first Jesse Eisenberg Lex Luthor photo below.

That Arnold Schwarzenegger would star in a zombie movie isn’t surprising. What makes Maggie unexpected is that it’s less a no-holds-barred action thrill ride than an intimate family drama.
Schwarzenegger plays Wade, whose world is turned inside out when a spreading zombie virus infects his beloved daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin). Wade remains determined to stay by her side and protect her, even as her condition worsens. Watch the Maggie trailer after the jump. Read More »
Vincent Chase and the boys from Queens are back in the second Entourage trailer. The film, written and directed by show creator Doug Ellin, opens June 5. It brings back to the screen the entire original cast including, but not limited to Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven.
This time, Ari Gold (Piven) is running his own studio and his first big bet is on Vince (Grenier). Vince not only wants to star in his own movie, he wants to direct it. That film is called Hyde, a modern take on the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, and it’ll make or break the long-time friends. Will things work out? Check out the new Entourage trailer – which is chock full of cameos – for a glimpse. Read More »

If you were following our dispatches from Sundance this year, you might already know to be excited for Slow West. Directed by John Maclean, the Western stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young man who journeys from Scotland to the American West to find his lost love (Caren Pisorious). Along the way he’s joined by Silas (Michael Fassbender), a mysterious gunslinger who guides and protects him.
As much as we love grim, gritty Westerns, part of what makes Slow West so intriguing is that it looks like so much more than that. It’s dark and violent, sure, but it’s also laced through with black humor, Biblical allegory, and even a slight a fairy tale feel. Watch the Slow West trailer after the jump. Read More »
There’s a new Fantastic Four poster from Fox, and while it doesn’t reveal much that is new, this one-sheet does display something that we didn’t really see in the trailer: the invisibility power of Sue Storm, played by Kate Mara. Trouble is, the display is via an image we’ve seen before, and looks more like a deployment of a photoshop effect than an actual superpower. Read More »
Walking onto the set of Insidious Chapter 3 is almost exactly like walking into the Further. That’s not just because, on day 25 of a 29 day shoot, they’re shooting scenes in the Further. It’s because first-time director Leigh Whannel likes a very quiet set and everything is kept incredibly dark. How dark is it? So dark, PAs walk around the stage with flashlight head attachments. So dark that even the dim monitors around which a small group of journalists huddles in far the corner are putting off too much light. A ceiling to floor curtain is dragged in front of us to just make sure things remain dark.
After writing and co-starring in the first two films, Whannel is doing both those jobs as well as directing Insidious Chapter 3. It’s a prequel to the first two, set three years before the first movie, and is described as an origin story for Elise, Lin Shaye’s character. She’ll be called in to help the Lambert family (Stefanie Scott and Dermot Mulroney) deal with some issues in the Further, the alternate plane of existence that’s home to some of the most terrible creatures imaginable. In Insidious Chapter 3, the main villain is described as “the physical manifestation of cancer” and he was the star of the brief, frightening scene we saw shot. It’s August 12, 2014 at Delfino Stages, about 20 miles outside of Los Angeles and this is our Insidious 3 set visit. Read More »

Love tales of talented young musicians and cranky old teachers, but found Whiplash a bit too intense for your liking? You might be the right audience for Boychoir, an upcoming indie drama starring Dustin Hoffman as a choir master who finds a promising preteen talent in Garrett Wareing.
Hoffman snaps things like “How dare you squander your talent?” but stops somewhere short of throwing heavy equipment at the kid’s head. And the kid gives as good as he gets, shooting back stuff like “Your clock is ticking too, old man.” Watch the Boychoir trailer after the jump. Read More »
