Right on the heels of Gareth Edwards‘ America reboot of Godzilla from Legendary and Warner Bros Pictures last year, Toho announced they would also be making a new Godzilla movie to open in 2016, two years ahead of Legendary’s Godzilla reboot sequel (scheduled for June 8th, 2018). Today Toho revealed the filmmakers/creatives for the upcoming movie, as well as the first teaser image for Godzilla 29.

We used to post an April Fools Day story each year on /Film, but I became annoyed by all the uncreative unfunny fake stories which infest this day. So we haven’t really participated in April Fools Day in a few years, and thats not changing this year — all the news you see on our front page is real news we believe to be true (hey, there’s always the chance that we’ll get fooled). So I’m not even going to pretend this is real for even a sentence or two (I know I’d almost have a mini heart attack), but I think its worth checking out.
I wanted to highlight this video from IGN, which claims to be a teaser trailer for a new Back to the Future reboot titled Fast to the Future starring Vin Diesel. I love this fake trailer as an April Fools Day release because you might buy it for a few seconds before it becomes so obviously ridiculous, It took some work to create this edit complete with computer generated effects… and its just fun. Watch the Back to the Future reboot trailer embedded after the jump.

Tony Jaa fans will get to see their favorite elbow-thrower kick some ass in a couple scenes in Furious 7 when that film opens at the beginning of April. If his guest appearance in that movie doesn’t seem like enough, there’s something else to look forward to: the sequel to the 2005 film Saat Po Long. (Aka SPL, aka SPL: Kill Zone.) That movie is the film where Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung fight like men possessed; it’s one of the great fight films of the last decade.
SPL 2 comes a decade later, and we were fairly skeptical about it being a good idea. But with Jaa, and Wu Jing and Zhang Jin among the co-stars, there was reason to hope. Now the first SPL 2 trailer is out, and it definitely looks violent and strange. Whether it will earn its title is another thing altogether, but this first trailer is fairly promising. Read More »
Call it War Dog — Max is the story of a dog trained to work with military units in Afghanistan, who finds a new life with family in the States after his handler is killed in action. If you’re a dog person, this first Max trailer is probably going to be enough to have you shedding tears on your laptop keyboard, and I can just imagine the tear-jerking power of the film, even when it throws out pretty goofy lines like “we’ve got the Air Jordan of dogs.” Check out the trailer below.

Deliberately throwing stuff onto a stranger’s roof is a jerk movie pretty much any time, especially when the thrown object is something that is a pain to clean up and primed to slowly decompose. And when random people are throwing the same thing on the same roof over and over again, it gets really irritating. But some Breaking Bad fans evidently can’t stop throwing pizza onto the roof of the house used as Walter White’s home in the series, and that’s becoming a problem for the people who actually live there. Now show creator Vince Gilligan is asking fans to cut it out. Read More »
