john cena

Remember Duke Nukem? The video game in which a muscle-bound bro fights aliens with a rotating arsenal of weapons, occasionally stopping to quote They Live and Army of Darkness? Well, now that Hollywood has officially run out of ideas, they’ve decided to turn it into a movie, and they want wrestler and baggy suit enthusiast John Cena to play the part. Groovy.

Blockers trailer

I like Ike Barinholtz, Leslie Mann, and John Cena. I think they’re all underrated, talented performers, and ever since seeing Barinholtz work his magic as a charmingly weird supporting character in The Mindy Project, I’ve been pulling for him to lock down some more starring roles in big studio comedies. But after watching this new trailer for Universal’s new movie Blockers, in which the three actors play parents who team up to sabotage their daughters’ pact to lose their virginity on prom night, I feel like Switch from The Matrix: “Not like this…not like this.”

Ferdinand trailer

In the wake of trailers like Peter Rabbit and Sherlock Gnomes that dropped earlier today, 2oth Century Fox and Blue Sky Animation’s upcoming movie Ferdinand looks almost pleasant. Sure, there are the butt jokes that seem to be a requirement in all non-Disney or Pixar animated kids films these days, and yes, things get a bit too on the nose when the titular bull (voiced by John Cena) ends up in – you guessed it – a china shop, but all things considered, this could be a whole lot worse. Check out a new international Ferdinand trailer and a new clip below.

blockers trailer

In the footsteps of other raunchy coming-of-age comedies like Superbad and American Pie where teens just want to have a lot of sex comes Blockers, a movie about three parents who will stop at nothing to sabotage their daughters’ sex lives.

Starring John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz as the traditionally-minded parents who discover their daughters’ prom night “sex pact,” Blockers is exactly what you’d expect out of a movie about teenage girls written by five dudes.

John Cena and Kumail Nanjiani Movie

The success of a buddy cop movie not only hinges on a good script (as all movies do), but on the strength of the duo at the center of the movie. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon, Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider in The French Connection, and Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell in Tango & Cash are all prime examples of fantastic partners in justice. But putting two partners together can be infinitely more difficult when comedy is involved, and now a new duo will be put to the test.

Universal Pictures has picked up an untitled buddy cop comedy from the mind of Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, one that will have wrestler turned actor John Cena teaming up with Silicon Valley co-star Kumail Nanjiani. Read More »

Daddy's Home 2 Trailer

A couple years ago, Paramount Pictures tried to corner the market on family comedy during the holiday season by releasing Daddy’s Home in theaters just a couple weeks before Christmas. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg going head-to-head was enough to rake in over $150 million at the domestic box office, so the studio fast-tracked the sequel for release this fall, and they’re really leaning into the holiday comedy angle hard this time.

Daddy’s Home 2 finds Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg friendlier than ever as they decide to bring both of their families together for Christmas for the first time ever rather than house-hopping like they usually do. That plan gets a little more complicated when Dusty (Wahlberg) finds out that his father (Mel Gibson) will be joining in the holiday fun this year, and he’s a far cry from Brad’s (Ferrell) lighthearted dad (John Lithgow). Plus, a new Daddy’s Home 2 trailer reveals that John Cena is getting in on the Christmas clashing with a much bigger role than he had in the first movie. Read More »

Knight Rider Movie - John Cena & Kevin Hart

Hot on the heels of Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff hoping that Robert Rodriguez could direct him in a Logan-esque film adaptation of the beloved 1980s TV series featuring the Baywatch star as an aged Michael Knight, we have news on the development of a Knight Rider movie, but it’s not going to make David Hasselhoff happy at all.

The Weinstein Company is reportedly taking a crack at making a Knight Rider movie, but rather than taking a more serious approach, the project will follow in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street by making it an action comedy. Furthermore, they want to put John Cena behind the steering wheel as Michael Knight and they’re considering Kevin Hart to provide the voice of the talking car called KITT. Read More »
