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 »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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 »
I’ve been way more interested in the Grumpy Cat television movie than I have any right to be. But something about the ridiculousness of the first Internet meme turned movie and the perfect voice casting of Aubrey Plaza has captured my imagination. We posted the Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever trailer last week, and it sadly looked like the quality you’d expect from a Lifetime Network movie — I almost deleted the scheduled recording off my DVR.
But Aubrey Plaza appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and talked about the film, which has prevented any rash DVR decisions on my part. Plaza has me interested in the film again, after claiming the movie will blow people away because it is “the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen”, calling it “so confusing, operating on so many levels of irony that I can’t even tap into them all — and I think Lifetime is only maybe tapped into one level.” Plaza also discussed working with Grumpy Cat and having to deal with her large entourage and management group. Watch Aubrey Plaza’s funny Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance embedded after the jump.

Here’s a new Avengers: Age of Ultron extended trailer, with an opening that shows a lot more of that first big conversation between the Avengers and Ultron. There’s not a lot of new stuff beyond that extended opening, but that opening will give fans a lot more dialogue to chew on. Additionally, check out a behind the scenes featurette which features a bit more footage. Read More »
