Monster Trucks trailer

Monster Trucks‘ road to the screen has been a long and winding one. Originally put into development in 2013, it finished shooting in 2014 for release in summer 2015… only to be delayed to Christmas 2015, and then to spring 2016, and then all the way to early 2017. But Paramount is finally ready to offer us a little peek of what’s in store. And what’s in store is far weirder than we would have guessed.

Lucas Till, who can currently be seen playing a middle-aged man in X-Men: Apocalypse, stars as a teenager named Tripp, who befriends a squishy subterranean creature that lives in and powers his junky old car. Yup, turns out the title “Monster Trucks” is very, very literal. Jane LevyHolt McCallany, Thomas Lennon, and Danny Glover also star. Chris Wedge directed.  Read More »

x-men apocalypse clip

X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters in one month, so the first official clip from the film has arrived right on schedule. If you’re looking for some footage showcasing superpowered beings exchanging blows or glimpses of the villainous Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) leveling entire cities, you’re probably going to feel a little let down. However, this clip does feature Rose Bryne‘s Moira MacTaggert – returning to the X-Men series after sitting out X-Men: Days of Future Past – giving James McAvoy‘s Professor X and Lucas Till‘s Havok a briefing on the subject of just how screwed they really are, and that’s nifty enough.

Lucas Till Xmen

CBS is hoping MacGyver will be the next beloved ’80s / ’90s hit to make a roaring comeback, and to that end they’ve cast a lead who has some experience with rebooted classic properties. Lucas Till, best known for playing mutant Havok in Fox’s X-Men series, has clinched the role of the resourceful agent, while Joshua Boone (Fan Girl) will co-star as MacGyver’s BFF.  Read More »

Lucas Till Xmen

Thought ditching the old-timers from X-Men: Days of Future Past would make X-Men: Apocalypse a bit less cumbersome? Maybe so, but there are still members of the younger cast roster signing on for the new movie. Bryan Singer‘s mutant extravaganza continues to grow with the confirmed return of Lucas Till, who played Alex Summers a.k.a. Havok in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Wolves red-band trailer

Jason Momoa is probably only a small part of Wolves, the movie from writer/director David Hayter, but he looks like one of the best parts. Hayter jumps from screenwriter (X-Men, Watchmen) and voice actor (he was Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid games until Kiefer Sutherland took over) to feature director. Wolves is about — brace yourself — a bunch of werewolves. Lucas Till plays a high school kid who has some hairy stuff developing in his blood. He hits the road and ends up in a town full of secrets and werewolves. I’m sure there’s a coming of age metaphor here somewhere, but you’ll have to give me a minute to pin it down. In the meantime, watch the Wolves red-band trailer below. Read More »

The Lego Movie

For a while there, it looked like Hollywood might be learning a lesson about toy-based films. Yes, the Transformers franchise continues to rake in the dough, but Battleship was one of the floppiest flops of the year, and Universal scrapped their plans to make movies based on other Hasbro board games.

Then The Lego Movie hit theaters, dominating the box office and earning stellar reviews besides. Suddenly, a Monster Trucks movie looks like a good idea. Such a good idea, in fact, that it’s begun casting, with Suburgatory‘s Jane Levy and X-Men: First Class‘s Lucas Till eyed for the leads.

After the jump, find out more about that, as well as why Warner Bros. is considering making Ninjago before it gets around to The Lego Movie 2. Read More »

Wolves

As Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, Jason Momoa was the feared leader of a vicious tribe of warriors. As Connor in David Hayter‘s Wolves, he’s pretty much the same thing, only his charges are werewolves instead of horse-lords.

X-Men: First Class star Lucas Till plays the protagonist, a recently orphaned high school student who’s horrified to discover that he’s turning into a wolf. He runs away from home and winds up in a town populated by two warring werewolf factions, one of which is led by Connor. Then he makes the mistake of falling for Connor’s girl Angelina (Merritt Patterson). Watch the first trailer after the jump.
