After Bad Moms took ins over $180 worldwide earlier this year at the box office, on a budget of just $20 million, STX Entertainment made the decision to quickly keep the franchise alive with a spin-off focusing on the other parents. Bad Dads was set for release on July 14, 2017, and it felt like an odd way to capitalize on the success of the film, especially without any of the original cast or writers/directors Jon Lucas & Scott Moore involved. But now Bad Moms is getting a sequel of its own too.

Bad Moms was a breath of fresh air this past summer. Co-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore made an original comedy which, instead of following around a bunch of normal man-children, starred women having fun and getting up to a little debauchery. But part of what was appealing about Bad Moms may not apply to the hit film’s spin-off, Bad Dads, which STX Entertainment has scheduled to open in theaters next summer.
Below, learn more about the Bad Moms spinoff.

Imagine if Mean Girls‘ Regina George never got hit by that bus, and instead continued along the path she’d been on before she met Cady Heron. Imagine the smug, gossipy, mean mom she’d grow up to be. That’s more or less the character Christina Applegate plays in Bad Moms, the new comedy from 21 & Over writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Together with her two besties (Jada Pinkett-Smith and Annie Mumolo), Gwendolyn rules the PTA with an iron fist.
But they aren’t the “bad moms” of the title. That’d be Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn, three stressed-out suburban moms. Fed up with the pressure to be perfect parents, they decide to indulge themselves for a change. When Gwendolyn stands in their way, they realize they’ve got to take her down.

In a world of kid-friendly CG animations, Hell and Back stands out as an R-rated, stop-motion endeavor. T.J. Miller and Nick Swardson lead the irreverent voice cast as Augie and Remy, who must journey into the underworld to rescue their buddy Curt (Rob Riggle).
Once there, they encounter all manner of colorful characters including a devious demon voiced by Mila Kunis, a sexy angel voiced by Susan Sarandon, and the Devil himself, voiced by Bob Odenkirk. Danny McBride, Michael Peña, and Jennifer Coolidge also lend their voices to the project. Watch the Hell and Back red-band trailer after the jump. Read More »
After all the excitement surrounding Andy & Lana Wachowski getting another chance at crafting original sci-fi, it was such a disappointment to see what Jupiter Ascending turned out to be. It’s one of those beautiful, mind-blowing disasters like Super Mario Bros. or Battlefield Earth. And while it’s full of stunning imagery and wild characters, none of it makes any damn sense. In fact, the movie is so ridiculous, that the folks at Honest Trailers were begged to skewer this sci-fi debacle, and they don’t pull any punches.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller have built up so much goodwill at this point, they could probably get audiences to watch anything. But even they may be testing their limits with MoonQuake Lake, a third-rate Twilight knockoff starring Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Rihanna.
Or rather, they might be pushing it if MoonQuake Lake were a real film instead of a pitch-perfect sendup of the fantasy YA subgenre. It’s the best joke from Annie, the new musical by Will Gluck. Watch Lord and Miller’s MoonQuake Lake trailer — and their tongue-in-cheek reaction to the film’s Golden Globes snub — after the jump. Read More »
Coming into 2014, Jupiter Ascending was one of my most anticipated films of the year. The combination of sci-fi action and the Wachowskis made it look like all the best parts of The Matrix and Cloud Atlas rolled into one. Then the film was delayed from a summer 2014 release to a spring 2015 release and that anticipation began to wane. Maybe it was delayed because of the effects work, as the studio said, maybe they knew the potentially weird movie would get buried in the summer or maybe it was a bit of both. Either way, the seed of doubt had been planted.
Now, the film is almost here. Jupiter Ascending opens February 6 and I’ve heard some early buzz it’s actually pretty good. That’s encouraging, as is this short but sweet new international trailer. Check out the latest Jupiter Ascending trailer below. Read More »
