When we weren’t crying over the Nationwide ad, singing along to Katy Perry’s halftime show, or screaming / cackling at Pete Carroll’s ill-fated fourth-quarter call, we were oohing and ahhing over the many many Super Bowl movie trailers unveiled last night.
Everything from Ted 2 to Tomorrowland was represented, with more robots, dinosaurs, flying cars, and college a cappella singers than you could shake a stick at. Watch all of the 2015 Super Bowl movie trailers after the jump. Read More »

Emma Watson will be Disney’s next fairy tale princess. The Harry Potter alum has just signed on to lead Beauty and the Beast, which Bill Condon is directing from a script by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spilotopoulos.
If the news is giving you déjà vu, that’s because Watson was previously attached to star in a competing Beauty and the Beast project over at Warner Bros. with Guillermo del Toro directing. More on the Emma Watson Beauty and the Beast casting after the jump. Read More »
The premise of Eli Roth‘s new film is very simple: Keanu Reeves plays a supposedly good man whose life is put to a severe stress test when two attractive young women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) knock on his door. The film just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (we’ll have a review soon) but you can see the first Knock Knock teaser below. Read More »

Lee Pace has gone on record saying he’d “love” to reprise the role of Ronan the Accuser for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. But it doesn’t look like James Gunn will be granting his wish.
The director has confirmed that Pace will not be back for the next Guardians of the Galaxy adventure — though he isn’t ruling out the possibility of his returning in a future film. Read his Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Lee Pace comment after the jump. Read More »
We’ve posted a few trailers for the indie horror film It Follows, but the movie is good, and deserves to build an audience. So here’s one more trailer for the film — the good news is that this may be the best It Follows trailer we’ve seen so far. This one sets up the basics of the story, in which a set of people are plagued by an unstoppable force that targets some sexually active kids, but also delves just a bit deeper into the situation without giving away anything too specific.

When FXX ran their 12 day 552-episode marathon of every episode of The Simpsons, I knew we would get some copycats. But there aren’t many television shows that have enough hours of content to compete with Matt Groening’s animated juggernaut. But there is Saturday Night Live, which will be celebrating their 40th season in 2015. Viacom is celebrating (ie building buzz) by airing all 433 hours of SNL in a back-to-back marathon which will span 19 days and two networks. Details about the Saturday Night Live marathon after the jump.

We’ve praised The Babadook since Sundance. It landed on Angie’s “Best Performances of 2014” list and our “50 Great Movies From 2014” list, and (spoiler) it’ll be on my ranked top ten of 2014, too. In short: see it! (Even Stephen King and The Exorcist director William Friedkin would tell you that.)
The film is on VOD now and in some theaters, too, so you can see it for yourself. If you haven’t seen it yet and are still on the fence, however, maybe a little friendly greeting will get you to give it a shot. This is just like the Charlie Brown Christmas special, only a lot darker. (OK, maybe not quite like that, but it’s still fun.) Read More »
Anyone who has ever read Sandman, the genre-bending comic written by Neil Gaiman, has probably thought about the idea of Tom Hiddleston as Morpheus, the title character and personification of Dream. While there was a point where Neil Gaiman was pushing forward the idea of Benedict Cumberbatch as Morpheus, now that the actor is locked into Doctor Strange he’s probably out of the running for any other comic book role. But “Hiddleston is still out there,” as Gaiman said when giving a semi-annual update on the project. Read More »
In Son of a Gun Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites are prisoners in a West Australian prison, where McGregor offers the younger Thwaites protection inside in exchange for help breaking out, which leads to the two pulling a big job outside. Once out of prison, there’s a gold heist, and a sense that betrayal is only a moment away, and the allure of the enigmatic and possibly criminally seasoned woman played by Alicia Vikander. Check out the Son of a Gun trailer after the break. Read More »
