Next week brings the release of Disney’s high seas rescue drama The Finest Hours, and the film is getting a release in IMAX 3D for the most immersive experience possible. The only way it could be more immersive is if the people working at the theater kept dumping buckets of water on you. That way you can be just as wet as Chris Pine and Casey Affleck will be in this movie about what is being called the most daring Coast Guard rescue mission ever. If you need anymore convincing to see the movie, check out a four-minute IMAX trailer for the movie after the jump. Read More »
During last night’s TV special DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League on The CW, in addition to the new trailer for Suicide Squad, the first footage from Wonder Woman was unveiled. We didn’t know if there would simply be behind the scenes footage or actual shots from the film, and thankfully it ended up being the latter.
Gal Gadot can be seen in the first Wonder Woman footage kicking some serious ass with some slow motion shots that would make Zack Snyder proud. Plus we get to see her riding around on a horse and putting on her disguise as Diana Prince back in World War I. Read More »
In case you haven’t heard, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. The original TV series premiered back in 1966, and that’s why Paramount Pictures wanted to make sure they got Star Trek Beyond in theaters this year as a way of paying tribute to Gene Roddenberry’s iconic sci-fi creation. So far we don’t know much about the third film in the rebooted franchise, but some new details have come to light.
A set visit to the Enterprise and brief interviews with some of the cast provide a little insight into where we find the crew of the ship, not to mention the state of the ship itself. Plus, get a look at some of the new weapons and an important addition to one character’s family. Read More »

As Wonder Woman worked its way through development, its setting seemed to shift with with the wind. Depending on who was attached to write or direct the movie at any given moment, it was rumored to be set in Ancient Greece. Or during the Roaring ’20s. Or during World War II. Now that the film is actually in production, the “where and when” of the film has finally been settled by Chris Pine, who will be playing Wonder Woman’s love interest, Steve Trevor, in the film.
It’s official now: Wonder Woman will be set during World War I. So there you go.

At a time when our big-screen heroes typically come packaged with extraordinary abilities or cutting-edge gadgets or mystical prophecies, Craig Gillespie‘s The Finest Hours looks like a throwback. It’s a no-frills tale of heroism, made all the more remarkable by the fact that these incredible events actually too place. In 1952, a brutal nor’easter savaged New England, smashing apart an oil tanker called the SS Pendleton and leaving over 30 sailors stranded at sea. Back on the Massachusetts shore, the Coast Guard got word of the disaster, and a small team of men bravely risked their own lives to help. The incident is still considered one of the greatest rescues in Coast Guard history.
In November 2014, I had the opportunity to visit the set of The Finest Hours along with a few other journalists. We spoke with a few of the talents involved, including director Gillespie, stars Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Kyle Gallner, and John Magaro, and producers Jim Whitaker and Dorothy Aufiero. After the jump, find out what we learned on the set of The Finest Hours. Read More »

Paramount Pictures, Skydance, Bad Robot and IMAX have announced that Star Trek Beyond will be digitally re-mastered for the giant screen format and will hit IMAX screens the same day it hits traditional screens on July 22nd, 2016. Read More »
