Nicolas Cage in Left Behind

Judging by all the things he gets blamed for, Satan seems like a pretty busy guy. Even so, he apparently finds time to keep up with current movie releases. Like Left Behind, the new Nic Cage apocalypse thriller from faith-based Stoney Lake Entertainment.

The Prince of Darkness himself is quoted in the latest ad for the film. Because why get blurbed by the usual Rotten Tomatoes crowd when you can go really big? See the Left Behind Satan quote after the jump.

Horrible Bosses 2 header

You’ve gotta love how Warner Bros. is marketing Horrible Bosses 2. The last trailer pushed the edges of what “Green Band” could do, featuring some incredibly racy dialogue from co-star Jennifer Aniston. She’s back in the latest trailer, called the “Official Main Trailer” and again her story sets the tone with some hilarious, off-color humor. Everyone seems to be really going for it here and, hopefully, the movie itself adheres to that.

Horrible Bosses 2 returns all the stars of the 2011 hit. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are once again three normal guys with major issues who turn to crime for a solution. Instead of murder though, this time the trio decide to take up kidnapping. Specifically, they target a guy and his father, played by Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz.

Directed by Sean Anders, check out the latest Horrible Bosses 2 trailer below. Read More »

Interstellar header

The only real way to see a Christopher Nolan movie is in IMAX. The filmmaker specifically makes his films for the large screen format, and with each subsequent movie he innovates in multiple ways. For his latest film, Interstellar, Nolan put IMAX cameras on planes to capture new footage. In the coming weeks, we’ll surely hear more about his IMAX use. Film projection in IMAX is important to him, too, and the flagship location, the TCL Chinese Theater IMAX, is specifically putting in a film projector for Nolan’s movie.

So we’ll say again: the only real way to see a Christopher Nolan movie is in IMAX. And it turns out, you’ll have a chance to do that a few days earlier than anywhere else. Multiple IMAX theaters are selling tickets to see the Interstellar IMAX experience on November 4, three days ahead of the wide November 7 opening. Read More »

Rush Hour TV series

Here’s a concept: we’re going to run one article with the headline “that movie you’ve probably seen is now being turned into a TV series.” TV is the new revenue stream, it seems, for companies that can no longer rely on a steady stream of home media revenue. The latest development concerns a Rush Hour TV series, which film director Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian will exec produce for Warner Bros. TV. Read More »

‘Zombieland 2′ Back on Fast Track With New Writer

ZOMBIELAND

Much like the characters implied by the title, Zombieland 2 keeps coming back to life. The original writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, have been thinking about a sequel for years and eventually spun some of those ideas into a Amazon TV pilot. The show was not picked up, and most thought that was the end. Like a good zombie, however, the feature version of Zombieland 2 is now rising from the grave.

A new report says Sony Pictures has hired Dave Callaham, writer of the first two Expendables movies, to pen a sequel with Ruben Fleischer expected to return and direct. Read More »
