Blues Brothers Animated Series

Even though legendary comedian John Belushi died back in 1982, that didn’t stop The Blue Brothers from getting revived for the unnecessary sequel Blues Brothers 2000. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that a lack of John Belushi isn’t stopping his partner in comedy crime, Dan Aykroyd, from developing a Blues Brothers animated series for primetime television. Thankfully, he’s collaborating with the right people to potentially make it work.

best directed movies

The Directors Guild of America is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year and it has decided to commemorate this event in a manner most befitting of the internet age: by making a list. More specifically, by polling DGA members and assembling a list of the 80 best-directed movies made since 1936, when the guild was founded. That’s one movie per year.

And like all internet lists, it’s bound to inspire conversation, eye-rolling, yelling, and maybe even a little cheer or two.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Trailer

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been kicking around in some form for over thirty years now. Everyone from your 5-year-old niece to your 64-year-old uncle could rattle off the names, colors, weapons, and broad personality traits of all four Turtles, and probably even pick a favorite to boot. But just in case you’ve been living in the sewers for the past three decades, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer has you covered. Michelangelo (Noel Fisher) runs down the members of his team, from himself (self-described as “a triple threat: brains, brawn, and a dazzling personality”) to their “fearless leader” Leonardo.

Ghostbusters Reboot Trailer

When the first trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot debuted a couple months ago, the opening moments confused some fans of the original franchise. While we heard that this new film from director Paul Feig and writer Katie Dippold was supposed to be a reboot with no narrative ties to the original franchise, the first few shots and the bumpers in between referenced the events of the first film that happened 30 years ago. This made some audiences wonder if there was some kind of link between the old and new movies after all, and they weren’t the only ones who were confused.

Melissa McCarthy recently appeared on a radio program to discuss the forthcoming summer release, and in their conversation, she expressed her own confusion from those opening shots in the trailer as well. Find out what she had to say about the Ghostbusters reboot after the jump. Read More »

Suicide Squad Trailer Mash-Up

Last month a rumor began to circulate that Disney was considering re-theming Disney California Adventure’s The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride into a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction. When the rumor hit, even though it was from a source that had been right many times in the past, I commented on Twitter that I just didn’t buy it. But sadly it seems like there may be truth to this rumor after all. I have since spoken to two separate sources who have corroborated the rumor, and a reliable Disney rumor site is now reporting it’s true. Find out the details on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride after the jump.

Scarlett Johansson in Don Jon

We’ve seen Scarlett Johansson do everything from arthouse sci-fi to indie rom-com to big-budget action over the past few years, but her latest new project, Rock That Body, takes her into still new territory: the R-rated comedy. Luckily, she’ll have some experienced comedy vets on hand to help her out. Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), and Ilana Glazer (Broad City) have just joined Johansson and Zoë Kravitz in Rock That Body, which comes from Broad City writers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. Downs (who also plays Trey on Broad City) will co-star, and Aniello will direct.  Read More »

captain america movie marathon

Last year, Marvel Studios tested the mettle of comic book movie fans with “The Ultimate Marvel Marathon,” a 28-hour marathon consisting of 11 movies, climaxing with the brand new Avengers: Age of Ultron. I didn’t attend this event, but I know people who did. They have war stories. Their posteriors (and their sanity) never returned to full working order.

Marvel isn’t doing anything as extreme as that this year, but they are still offering fans the chance to numb their butts in the name of superhero fandom. They have just announced the “Ultimate Captain America Marathon,” which will screen in select theaters this Thursday and will, of course, conclude with a screening of Captain America: Civil War.
