‘Broom-Hilda’ May Get Her Very Own Movie

Broom Hilda

Broom-Hilda, the 1,500-year-old witch, may be making her way to theaters. Created by Russell Myers in 1970, the cigar-smoking, beer-drinking witch is the star of a long-running newspaper comic strip. The character has also appeared twice on television in animated form. Now producers Gilbert Adler and Jason A. Rosenberg‘s hope is to make her the star of her own film franchise.

Below, learn more about the Broom-Hilda movie.

Insecure trailer

HBO’s drama side is struggling right now, as we were reminded when Vinyl became its latest mercy-killing earlier this week. But on the comedy side, things are looking much, much sunnier. Veep is still going strong under a new showrunner; Silicon Valley is better than ever; Ballers is HBO’s biggest comedy hit since Sex and the City; and Curb Your Enthusiasm is set to return for season 9.

And its upcoming slate looks pretty interesting, too. Today we have the first trailer for Insecure, a new half-hour comedy from Awkward Black Girl creator Issa Rae. The show seems to fit right into the HBO brand while also offering something a little different. If Insecure is as fun as the promo it looks like HBO will have another hit on its hands. Watch the trailer below.  Read More »

Mr Robot

If you’ve been waiting since last September for Mr. Robot to return, your patience is about to be richly rewarded. USA has added two more episodes to the second season, which kicks off next month, and added a Talking Dead-style aftershow so you can keep the good times going even longer. Oh, and as if all that weren’t enough to get you excited, there’s also a new season 2 trailer for you to pore over.  Read More »

Ghostbusters TV Spots

With just three weeks left until the new Ghostbusters hits theaters, plenty of TV spots are started to hit the air, trying to pull in as many moviegoers as possible. There’s no doubt the movie is going to make some bank in its opening weekend, but will it be the hit that Sony Pictures hopes it will be?

As a huge fan of the original Ghostbusters, I want to see a new franchise succeed, but the more footage of the comedy from the movie I see, the more worried I get. These new Ghostbusters TV spots don’t do much to assuage those fears, and that’s coming from someone who really likes the work Paul Feig has done. Having said that, the action, visuals, gadgets and more all look outstanding.

mechanic resurrection trailer

Jason Statham is nothing if not consistent. Although he’s taken detours into blockbuster territory with Furious 7, showcased some strong comedy chops in Spy, and made the (love ’em or hate ’em) wholly singular Crank movies, Statham’s bread and butter has always been the modestly budgeted action movie. The continuously expanding Jason Statham library isn’t full of too many great movies, but it is full of movies that make simple promises and then deliver exactly what you need them to deliver. He is the king of low expectations. You put on one of his movies hoping to watch a tough guy with a cockney accent obliterate a bunch of bad guys and he always delivers. And that’s not faint praise, either. There aren’t many actors who can pull that off.

Mechanic: Resurrection looks like another typical entry in the ever-expanding Statham canon. It looks refreshingly small when compared to most modern action movies, incredibly straightforward, and built entirely around the pleasure of watching this man kick every single ass that crosses his path.

Ouija: Origin of Evil trailer

2014’s Ouija was a waste of a halfway decent idea, a lazy cash grab cobbled together from bits and pieces of other, better movies. But it cost $5 million to make and grossed over $100 million worldwide, so you know what that means: we’re getting a sequel. Or rather, a prequel.

As the title suggests, Ouija: Origin of Evil goes back to earlier times. Specifically the 1960s, even though Ouija boards were actually invented in the late 19th century and evil definitely goes back way further than that. Anyway, the trouble begins when a fake medium (Elizabeth Reaser) and her two daughters (Annalise Basso and Lulu Wilson) accidentally summon a very real and very nasty spirit. Watch the Ouija: Origin of Evil trailer after the jump.  Read More »

inferno trailer

It’s been a decade since The Da Vinci Code hit theaters and seven years since the same team adapted Angels & Demons and it’s a little surprising just how little director Ron Howard‘s adaptations of author Dan Brown’s art history-themed airport thrillers have remained in pop culture consciousness. Tom Hanks playing a bookish, thinking man’s Indiana Jones who galavants around Europe solving mysteries tied to art and architecture should be fun, but it’s hard to remember anything at all about the previous two movies in this series. They’re serviceable. They’re watchable. They’re fine.

But they also made a ton of money (especially on the international stage), so Howard and Hanks are back for the adaptation of Inferno and the new trailer looks…silly. Like, really, really silly. Silly enough that I feel compelled to actually see the film because I need to know if the actual movie is as preposterous as what I’m seeing in the preview.

Bokeem Woodbine

UPDATE #1: And the Spider-Man: Homecoming casting notices keep on coming. Now Michael Mando, known for his recurring roles in Orphan Black and Better Call Saul, has signed on in (say it with me now) a mystery role.

UPDATE #2: Just hours after we heard Michael Mando had been cast in Spider-Man: Homecoming — which was just hours after we heard Abraham Attah had signed on — comes news that Bokeem Woodbine will also star. He’s coming off of some of the best reviews of his career in FX’s Fargo, and will play an unnamed villain. Original story follows.

Spider-Man: Homecoming began filming a few days ago, but the new cast members keep on coming. The latest name to be added to the first Spidey solo movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Abraham Attah, the young actor who made a huge splash after starring in last year’s critically acclaimed Beasts of No Nation. This has quietly become one of the best and most diverse casts ever assembled for a superhero movie.

game of thrones season finale 1

Last week’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 6 was a surprisingly optimistic hour for a show that generally likes to drag its heroes through the mud before chopping their heads off. For the first time in a long time, maybe even ever, things were kind-of, sort-of, looking up for the more traditional heroes. There’s still a lot of war left to fight and winter is still coming and there’s still an army of the dead amassing in the north, but hey, everyone is Westeros should take whatever little victory they can get.

Game of Thrones season finales tend to act as an hour of clean-up, tying up the loose ends from the typically cataclysmic episode nines while laying the ground work for whatever comes next. So let’s peruse the batch of stills from the final episode of 2016, titled “The Winds of Winter,” and do what fans of this show do best: speculate wildly into the wind.
