Mission Impossible 7 on Paramount+

Universal Pictures has already been shaking up the exclusive theatrical release window by sending their smaller and midrange theatrically released titles to VOD just 17 days after they hit the big screen. Then Warner Bros. Pictures came along and took things a step further by releasing all of their 2021 theatrical movies simultaneously on HBO Max for 31 days. Now Paramount Pictures is the latest to shorten the time their movies spend exclusively in theaters.

As part of a Viacom CBS investor day presentation today, Paramount Pictures announced that they will be sending blockbusters such as Mission: Impossible 7, A Quiet Place Part II, and Top Gun: Maverick to the recently rebranded streaming service just 45 days after they’ve hit theaters. Read More »

The Mauritanian trailer

In Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, Tom Hanks plays a lawyer tasked with defending a man accused of being an enemy of the United States. In The Mauritanian, it’s Jodie Foster‘s turn to do the same thing – but her client is actually innocent. The film tells the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Tahar Rahim), who was detained at the Guantánamo Bay detention camp for 14 years without being charged. Shailene Woodley (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars) co-stars as Foster’s character’s assistant, while Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Doctor Strange) is doing another one of his unnerving accents. Check out the latest The Mauritanian trailer below. Read More »

halo tv series paramount+

You’ll be able to find it there in the first quarter of 2022.

Michael Bay Stunt Video

The King of Explosions is back, baby – but if he’s not careful, his overwhelming desire to blow stuff up real good might literally be the death of him.

Michael Bay, the director of honest-to-God action classics like The Rock and, uh, anti-classics like Transformers: Age of Extinction, is currently hard at work making a new thriller called Ambulance, which is filming in Los Angeles. Bay is a natural born showman, and he’s shared a new behind-the-scenes video of an explosive stunt on the set of his new movie which looks insanely dangerous, but which Bay promises was “controlled.” Check it out below.

Ready for Zack Snyder‘s big new movie for 2021?! No, I don’t mean the Snyder Cut of Justice League –  I’m talking about Army of the Dead, Snyder’s return to the world of zombies. The action-horror pic follows a group of mercenaries who attempt to pull off a big heist in the middle of zombie-infested Las Vegas. The Army of the Dead trailer is arriving tomorrow, and ahead of that, we have a behind-the-scenes pic that features Snyder, star Dave Bautista, and a whole lot of corpses (to be clear, they’re fake movie corpses, so don’t get too stressed).

the jaunt series

The Jaunt, a spooky sci-fi short story from frightmaster Stephen King, is being turned into a series. Having read the story I can tell you that this is a weird idea, and I’m not sure how you even turn this into a series as opposed to a movie. But I’ll let Dave Erickson work that one out. Erickson, co-creator of Fear the Walking Dead, is developing the series for MRC Television. The story is set in the 24th century, where teleportation is commonplace. Of course, since this is a Stephen King story, something goes wrong.
