As a filmmaker, Zach Braff has delivered two indie films with much different receptions. Garden State was a film festival darling that captured the hearts of many when it came out in 2004, but it has since lost some of its shine (though I will defend it and love it forever). Then Braff’s return behind the camera, his partially crowdfunded Wish I Was Here , wasn’t anything to write home about. Now Braff has decided to get behind the camera for something much different: a mainstream studio comedy remake.
Going In Style, a contemporary remake of the 1979 heist movie of the same name, follows a trio of geriatric longtime friends (veteran actors Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin) who decide to rob a bank. It doesn’t feel like a Zach Braff movie at all, and it looks like the kind of movie your parents and grandparents will love.

Right now Jurassic World is the biggest movie of 2015. As we get closer to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, analysts will start crunching the numbers to see if the sci-fi sequel will be able to beat the dinosaur franchise pseudo-reboot, and we might have a new box office king.
But even though the movie was a hit this year, one YouTuber imagined how much more groundbreaking Jurassic World would have been if it was released all the way back in 1978. Watch the 1978 Jurassic World trailer below! Read More »

Furious 7 was a record-breaking success, but to paraphrase that old Biblical saying, man cannot live on Fast and Furious movies alone. So Vin Diesel is shaking things up a bit with The Last Witch Hunter, in which he plays — yup — the last witch hunter.
Immortal and kind of unhappy about it, Diesel’s Kaulder is locked in a centuries-long battle against a witch queen (Julie Engelbrecht) who wants to unleash a plague on humanity. Fortunately, he’s got some help in the form of Rose Leslie, of Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey fame. Elijah Wood and Michael Caine also star.
