Smurfs The Lost Village Trailer

After two movies that blended live-action and animation, Sony Pictures Animation is taking The Smurfs in an entirely different direction with a new fully computer animated adventure, featuring a completely different voice cast, and a mystery for the blue guys (and one girl) to solve.

Smurfs: The Lost Village follows Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty as they defy Papa Smurf’s rules, head into the Forbidden Forest, and try to find a rumored lost village full of…well, we don’t know, but they have eyes just like the Smurfs, so I guess that’s a good sign?

Joe Manganiello Defends The Batman

Last week, a troubling rumor arose about the state of the script for Ben Affleck‘s developing The Batman (or whatever it ends up being called), thanks to some secondhand information from Bret Easton Ellis. After what he said spread on the internet like wildfire, he walked back his statements, making sure to reiterate that all this information was from people who aren’t directly tied to the project. Now we have word from someone who will be a key part of the project pushing expectations the other way.

Joe Manganiello has been confirmed to play the villain Deathstroke in Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie, and while making a guest appearance on a podcast recently, he talked about what convinced him to get involved, and what fans can expect from the forthcoming outing for The Dark Knight.

Tumbledown trailer

Jason Sudeikis got his start on Saturday Night Live, and he still does his fair share of goofy comedies — he’ll be voicing one of the angry birds in Angry Birds, for example. But recently, he’s also started to emerge as a viable romcom leading man. He did excellent work opposite Alison Brie in last year’s Sleeping With Other People, and now he’s following it up with the indie dramedy Tumbledown.

His leading lady here is Rebecca Hall, the still-grieving widow of a musician. When Sudeikis’ Andrew, a pop culture scholar, arrives to conduct some research on her late husband, she treats him with hostility at first, but… well, if you’ve ever seen a romcom before, you can probably guess where this is going.

Conan O'Brien sees Magic Mike XXL

This weekend Terminator: Genisys is hitting theaters, but veteran action star Arnold Schwarzenegger has a lot more to worry about than a new advanced cyborg. No, Schwarznegger’s biggest threat is a group of shirtless, thrusting men from Magic Mike XXL.

The film has plenty of men and women alike getting the vapors, and Conan O’Brien wanted to see what all the fuss was about. On a recent episode of his late night talk show on TBS, Conan joined his female staff members for a girls night out as they headed to a midnight screening of the Channing Tatum-led sequel that isn’t about a heavyweight magician. As you probably guessed,  the results are pretty damn funny.

Magic Mike XXL

Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike was a thoughtful examination of the American dream, but of course the real draw was the gyrating hardbodies on stage. So far, Magic Mike XXL seems to be leaning into that raunchy appeal, with a marketing campaign heavy on half-naked torsos and naughty puns. Not that we’re complaining.

The newest Magic Mike XXL trailer continues in the same vein, commenting on how hard (wink wink) it was to resist showing off all the best parts (nudge nudge) of the movie. Even so, there’s plenty to enjoy here. Feast your eyes on the new Magic Mike XXL trailer after the jump. Read More »
