Ghostbusters just arrived on home video last week, and it came with the extended cut of the film that wasn’t seen in theaters. Word on the street is that the extra 15 minutes put back into the movie actually fixes many of the plot holes that remained in the theatrical cut, and it just might be worth watching. It probably won’t change the minds of those who flat out hated the theatrical cut already, but there you have it.
Now that the film is on home video, some of the outtakes are making their way online. There are actually two gag reels and six alternate take reels available in the special features, showing that Paul Feig shot a lot of footage for this movie. They’re all worth watching for some laughs, but easily the best one out of all of them are Kate McKinnon‘s Ghostbusters outtakes. They’re wacky, wonderful and just pure improvisational magic. Watch them below! Read More »
Miguel Sapochnik has a lot of nerd cred going for him at the moment. The director is fresh off of directing two fan-favorite Game of Thrones episodes, “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter.” The Emmy-winning director hasn’t made a feature film since 2010’s Repo Men, an entertaining, albeit messy, B-movie that didn’t connect with audiences and was possibly held back by compromises. Six years after making his feature directorial debut, Sapochnik has another film in the works, and it’s about the legendary adventures of Sinbad.
Below, learn more about the new Sinbad movie.

Over the past couple months, we’ve been getting little tidbits here and there about Jurassic World 2. Technically, this could also be called Jurassic Park 5, but since we’re dealing with a whole new franchise, it’s probably easier to have the distinction between what came before and what’s happening now. Now we know Jurassic World 2 will keep one tradition from the ongoing franchise alive.
A new casting call for Jurassic World 2 reveals some vague details about a new character, and it’s a kid. Which means we’ll continue the tradition of having precocious kids run from dinosaurs yet again. Find out more about the new Jurassic World 2 character after the jump. Read More »

The first trailer for Logan arrived this morning and it’s safe to say that the look and feel of this movie is unlike any other X-Men movie. Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman seem intent on bringing the saga of Wolverine to a definitive and dramatic close, complete with a trailer that is as solemn as it is exciting.
We’re still in the early days of the film’s marketing and much about the movie remains under wraps, but there’s still a lot to dig into here. Let’s comb through that trailer shot-by-shot and frame-by-frame and see what we can discover. Speculation, and maybe accidental spoilers, follow.

James Corden has plenty of fun with “Carpool Karaoke” over on The Late Late Show at CBS. In fact, people love it so much that Apple Music ordered an entire TV series based on the premise. However, my personal favorite gag of James Corden’s is when he gets a big movie star to reenact their entire filmography in just a few minutes. Tom Hanks did it in eight minutes, Matt Damon did it in seven minutes and Arnold Schwarzenegger did it in six minutes. Now it’s Tom Cruise‘s turn, and this one takes the longest yet.
Watch almost all the Tom Cruise movies reenacted in just 9 minutes after the jump, and there just might be a cameo from one of Tom Cruise’s former co-stars. Read More »
Last winter brought the holiday horror flick Krampus to theaters, and I’m betting that a lot of you out there didn’t catch it. The film only made nearly $43 million at the box office (which wasn’t bad at all on a budget of $15 million), but the Legendary production deserves to be seen for bringing some truly terrifying monsters to life and creating some fantastic entertainment to counter the usually cheery Christmas movies we see on TV each year. Now two of the talents responsible for writing Krampus will be bringing their monstrous talents to the King of Monsters in Godzilla 2. Read More »
Last night, a bunch of members of the press saw Doctor Strange, and while the reviews are still under embargo, a bunch of initial reactions hit Twitter last night praising the visual spectacle, the incredible action, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. It doesn’t sound like it blows any of our favorites from the Marvel cinematic universe out of the water, but it should be a great franchise starter for another Marvel hero.
If all of the early reactions have you hungry to see the movie, we have a couple Doctor Strange clips that should hold you over. One of them features more Rachel McAdams than we’ve seen in the entirety of the trailers, displaying the somewhat complicated relationship history that her character has with Strange. Meanwhile, the other clip has a frustrated Strange listening to what he regards as spiritual nonsense from Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One. Read More »

The third season of Black Mirror hits Netflix on Friday, which means we can all look forward to a weekend of gradually feeling more and more queasy about the very technology we’re using to watch the show. And because Netflix knows Black Mirror fans will eventually come out of that miserable binge with a taste for still more disturbing tales about the intersection of technology and human nature, they’re already getting to work on season 4.
Jodie Foster has been set to direct an episode of Black Mirror season 4, which will star Rosemarie DeWitt. And while we wait for that intriguing installment to come together, Netflix has released a new featurette to whet your appetite for season 3. Read More »

It’s a good time to be a sci-fi fan. Sure, there’s all the comic book and superhero movies out there right now, but more importantly there are shows like Westworld on HBO and movies like Arrival on the way. After premiering to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival, the new sci-fi drama from Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve is on the way next month, and one quick final trailer gives us one more tease of what’s in store. Thankfully, it doesn’t give away any of the mystery. If anything it only makes the mystery even more enticing.

Director Ti West tries his hand at a new genre with
In a Valley of the Violence. The director of The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, and The Sacrament has made a Western with attitude and plenty of personality. The revenge tale stars Ethan Hawke as Paul, a dangerous and tortured loner seeking revenge. He’ll stop at nothing to get his hands on his dog’s killers, Gilly (James Ransone) and his gang.
Paul’s motivation couldn’t be cleaner or more to the point. In a Valley of Violence is a blast of simplicity. This isn’t a movie that wastes any time, as West’s story builds towards a bloody, darkly funny finale that puts John Travolta to great use as a hilariously sympathetic antagonist. West, who typically makes audiences squirm, has crafted his most crowd-pleasing film to date.
The writer-director recently spoke with us about Jeff Grace‘s score, Ethan Hawke and John Travolta’s performances, Neal Jonas‘ striking opening credits, and his love for opening title sequences. Below, read our Ti West interview.
