Richard Gere is one of those movies stars who’s probably slightly undervalued as an actor because of his stardom. But for the past decade, aside from the occasional hokey romance or two, he’s been doing some of his most thoughtful work as a performer. He’s taken on smaller and more intimate projects, frequently playing some wonderfully unlikable and deeply human characters (see The Hoax or The Hunting Party, if you haven’t already). His next film, The Benefactor, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, and it was met with mostly positive reviews.

After the jump, watch the trailer for The Benefactor.

Fifty Shades of Black trailer

Based on the box office numbers, just about every grown-up in the world celebrated Valentine’s Day this year by going to see Fifty Shades of Grey. Naturally, Lionsgate quickly moved to lock down Valentine’s Day 2017 and 2018 as well, for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. But what’s a Fifty Shades fan to do for Valentine’s Day 2016?

Well, there are a couple of options. You could watch Dakota Johnson’s vanilla romcom How to Be Single, the trailer for which debuted yesterday. Or, if you’ve got more, um, unconventional desires, you could check out Marlon WayansFifty Shades of Grey parody, Fifty Shades of Black. Watch the trailer after the jump. Read More »

Extraction Trailer

If you’re in the market for an action thriller, but you don’t really care if the story is formulaic, the performances are terrible, and it looks like everybody phoned it in, then we have good news.

The first trailer for the new movie Extraction has arrived, and while you’re normally used to seeing Bruce Willis save the day, this time he’s the one who needs saving. Kellan Lutz plays his son, who is both deadly and a government analyst, and must try to save his father, and by association millions of people threatened by a terrorist plot. It’s just as bland as it sounds. Read More »

11.22.63 trailer

The pedigree behind the upcoming miniseries 11.22.63 is certainly intriguing. You have Hulu taking another huge step into the the world of original content (consider this a direct parry to Netflix’s constant blows). You have source material from the great Stephen King, whose novel of the same name is the one of the most acclaimed he’s written in years. You have J.J. Abrams on board as an executive producer. And then you have James Franco, that slippery wild card of a leading man, headlining an ensemble stuffed with interesting actors.

The first trailer for the nine-epiosde limited series has arrived and while it’s only a minor tease, it’s certainly going to turn a few heads. There are too many interesting parties involved to not dredge up interest.

Watch the 11.22.63 trailer after the jump.

Central Intelligence header

Dwayne Johnson may have the physique of an action hero, but underneath all those bulging muscles there’s a comedy star just waiting to break free. Or at least that’s what Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber is banking on in his new movie. Central Intelligence pairs Johnson with comedy A-lister Kevin Hart — and then has Johnson be the funny one, and Hart act as the straight man. Talk about a plot twist. Check out the first Central Intelligence images after the jump.

A Monster Calls teaser trailer

Liam Neeson can be pretty damn intimidating when he wants to be (see: his entire post-Taken career), so it’s a little ironic that when he finally gets the chance to play a straight-up monster, he… actually doesn’t seem scary at all. The monster of J.A. Bayona‘s A Monster Calls seems plenty big and creepy, sure. But he seems to be a gentler sort, more interested in rescuing lost little boys and making moviegoers cry, than he does unleashing terror upon screaming victims.

Based on the novel by Patrick Ness (who also penned the screenplay), A Monster Calls stars Lewis MacDougall as a young boy who escapes his unhappy reality by slipping into a dark fantasy world. Felicity Jones and Toby Kebbell play his parents. Watch the A Monster Calls teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »

Dirty Granpda Red Band Trailer

Old men saying inappropriate things and college girls saying overtly sexual remarks back to them is always hilarious, right? That’s what Lionsgate seems to think with the Dirty Grandpa red-band trailer, which shows off the R-rated side of this road trip comedy.

Zac Efron is about to get married, but since his grandmother just passed away, he’s helping out his grandfather (Robert De Niro) by driving him down to Florida. But what was supposed to be an innocent bonding trip has turned into a spring break of debauchery, as all the old man wants to do is get laid. Sounds like a crack-up, right? Wrong.

100 years movie

Director Robert Rodriguez has always been game for experimentation and actor John Malkovich has never shied away from odd projects, but their new collaboration, titled 100 Years, is something else entirely. Although it’s technically a promotional stunt for Louis XIII Cognac, a luxury item that costs more than most human beings make in a month, this film can’t help but make a fascinating artistic statement by its very nature.

Because it won’t be released for a century. Seriously. 100 Years won’t be screened anywhere until 2115. Even the teasers that have been released don’t contain footage from the actual movie. The gimmick is that is takes 100 years to properly age Louis XIII into a bottle of booze that only millionaires can afford, so what happens when you let a top secret Rodriguez/Malkovich project sit around for a century?

Hit the jump a few teasers and some more information on the 100 Years movie.

Deadpool Standee

Depending on what kind of multiplex you go to, you may have noticed that cardboard movie theater standees have gotten more complex in recent years. Some are just 3D versions of movie posters, while others allow fans to interact or pose for photos that make them look like they’re part of the poster.

And that’s exactly what 20th Century Fox and Marvel movie have delivered with the latest fun standee you might spot at your local theater. This Deadpool standee has the Merc with a Mouth acting as Santa Claus, so you can sit on his lap for a nice Christmas card photo for your friends and family. Look! Read More »
