Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer

Because box office is king, we’re getting another Pirates of the Caribbean movie whether we like it or not. The jury is still out as to whether this will be the last film in the franchise or if Disney is just on the verge of relieving Johnny Depp of his nautical duties as Captain Jack Sparrow and handing the film series off to new blood instead. All we know is Jack Sparrow’s past comes to haunt him when a pirate hunter (Javier Bardem) he cursed in his younger years comes back to get revenge on the rum-soaked pirate.

A new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer surfaced online this weekend, and while it features some bits that we already saw in the most recently released theatrical trailer, it also gives us some new moments with franchise newcomers Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites, as well as some information on where pirates fall on the necessity of pants.

The Maze Runner The Scorch Trials (1)

After narrowly escaping the maze in the first film, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his comrades discover that life outside the Glade is no picnic either in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Turns out the Glade was just Phase One of a program developed by the none too subtly named WCKD, as a response to a catastrophic solar flare that has decimated the planet.

In search of answers, our heroes head out into an unforgiving desert landscape known as the Scorch, filled with roving zombie-like creatures known as Cranks. (This franchise loves capitalizing things for no reason.) Basically, think Mad Max meets Oblivion, plus the zombies from 28 Days Later. Yeah. Not a good scene. Watch the first Maze Runner The Scorch Trials trailer after the jump. Read More »

20th Century Fox has revealed the first images from Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. And to look at them, it seems there’s both good and bad news for Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his friends played by Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Ki Hong Lee.

On the bright side, they’re spending a lot less time in mazes nowadays. On the other hand, it looks like they’re still on the run. Or rather, they would be if they could. Get your Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials first look after the jump. (Needless to say, but spoilers for The Maze Runner are below.) Read More »

On June 4th 2013, I spent the night and early morning hours on a farm outside Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on the set of Wes Ball‘s upcoming movie adaptation The Maze Runner.

After the jump you can read about everything I learned about the movie while on The Maze Runner set.

Emanuel and Truth About Fishes

When this film premiered at Sundance this year, it was called Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, and we even saw a trailer under that title. For regular release, however, the title has been streamlined a bit, to the more conventional The Truth About Emanuel. Jessica Biel stars as a woman whose young neighbor neighbor thinks Biel looks a lot like her dead mother. That leads to a strange friendship, and to tension as long-buried secrets are revealed.

The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner has yet to prove itself as the next Hunger Games, if only because it’s not even set to open for another year. But 20th Century Fox is feeling pretty confident in the film, to the extent that they’ve already begun work on the sequel.

The studio has just optioned the rights to The Scorch Trials, the second installment of James Dashner‘s four-part dystopian YA saga. (Yep, another one.) T.S. Nowlin, who co-wrote the first movie, is set to script, under the supervision of The Maze Runner director Wes Ball. More about the movie and its possible follow-up after the jump.
