It seems crazy to think that Kong: Skull Island will be in theaters in just a little over a month. There doesn’t seem to be enough buzz about the movie just yet, but that will likely change as the release date gets closer. There’s a chance there could even be a Super Bowl spot to help spread the word.
In the meantime, a new Kong: Skull Island IMAX poster has been released that takes an obvious cue from Apocalypse Now, just like the first trailer for the King Kong reboot did. Plus, we finally have confirmation on how Kong Skull Island connects to Godzilla, the reboot of the King of Monsters from 2014. Read More »
In less than two months, a new King Kong movie with Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Brie Larson, Shea Whigham, Tom Hiddleston, and Jason Mitchell comes out. Let’s hope the movie is as good as that sounds, and that it’s as good as it looks because Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ follow-up to The Kings of Summer looks like one big, intense popcorn movie. Did I mention Vogt-Robers film also stars John Ortiz (Togetherness)? He hasn’t been featured prominently in the marketing materials, like the Kong: Skull Island TV spots below, but he’s in it, which is another valid reason to want to see Samuel L. Jackson and a band of soldiers take on some giant monsters.
Below, watch the new Kong: Skull Island TV spot.

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

We first heard about Holmes and Watson back in 2008. At the time, it was going to star Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, but the comedy fell to the wayside, and we instead got two Sherlock Holmes movies from Guy Ritchie. The musical was revived last summer with Ferrell still onboard but with Cohen out. Etan Cohen‘s (Get Hard) film now has John C. Reilly playing Watson, making this an exciting reunion for the Step-Brothers and Talladega Nights stars. They’re in good company, too, as Hugh Laurie (Chance) and Ralph Fiennes (A Bigger Splash) have signed on to star in the film.
Below, learn more about Holmes and Watson.

Following a revival of Godzilla back in 2014, another one of most menacing monsters of the movies is returning to theaters. Kong: Skull Island brings back the King of the Apes known as King Kong. And while we know that this new take on Kong will have ties to the same world that the new Godzilla exists in, eventually leading to a head-to-head battle between the two monsters in 2020, first we must have a proper introduction to the giant ape.

Last weekend at Comic-Con, the hype centered around the likes of the first trailer for Power Rangers, the teaser trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, the first trailer for Marvel’s Iron Fist series, and news of Sigourney Weaver being the villain for The Defenders. But one cool little tidbit flew under the radar until after the dust had settled.
Kong: Skull Island gave attendees of San Diego Comic-Con their first look at the classic monster reboot from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer) with a teaser trailer, and now a poster handed out to some lucky folks at New York Comic-Con teases the release of the giant ape a little more. Upon first inspection, it’s just an innocent teaser poster with a grid map of the mysterious Skull Island. But when you take a black light to it, some interesting secrets are revealed. Read More »
Even though there have been rumblings of a Step Brothers sequel, it’s safe to say that project is probably just a pipe dream at this point. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t have another team-up of Talladega Nights stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in the near future.
Holmes and Watson is a comedic take on Sherlock Holmes that has been kicking around since 2008, but it fell to the wayside when Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of the detective with Robert Downey Jr. moved forward quickly and successfully. But now it appears enough time has passed for the project to resurface as a new project for Ferrell and Reilly to finally reunite yet again.

Illumination Entertainment has a couple of new animated movies hitting theaters this year. The first is the animal adventure The Secret Life of Pets, arriving this summer. But just before Christmas, Illumination will get musical with Sing. In what is basically Zootopia meets American Idol, one koala (Matthew McConaughey) decides to put on a huge singing competition to save his theater, and some average animals with incredible pipes look at it as their opportunity for a better life. Of course, it’s all fueled by an endless array of popular songs from yesterday and today.

You really don’t know what you’re getting when you settle in for a new Matteo Garrone film. The Italian director has been making feature films for twenty years, but he achieved international renown for his stunning and brutal crime film Gomorrah in 2008. He then shifted gears in a major way for Reality, a comic drama about an ordinary man whose life is thrown into chaos after he’s cast on a reality show. Garrone’s latest film is another big left turn: a fantasy anthology based one of the world’s most influential fairy tale collections.
The Tale of Tales trailer is filled with stunning shots and oddball moments and it certainly looks like a must-see for fans of offbeat cinema. But most importantly, it features a scene where Salma Hayek eats the heart of a sea monster.

If the Minions aren’t your cup of tea, then maybe you’ll be more interested in one of Illumination Entertainment’s other projects coming this year. The Secret Life of Pets is the next one from the animation studio arriving this summer, but just before Christmas this year, they also have the musically charged Sing.
Like many animated movies, this one takes place in a world where animals live like humans, and one koala has fallen on hard times, unable to keep his theaters up and running. So in a last ditch effort to keep the place alive, he decides to throw an epic singing competition, and some clips of the animals auditioning for the show have just debuted before the official teaser trailer arrives next week. Watch the Sing audition clips after the jump and prepare to tap your feet. Read More »
