Director Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies) is back with a new Seth Rogen/Charlize Theron comedy called Long Shot. If that title doesn’t sound familiar, you may recognize it from its earlier (and arguably more memorable) title: Flarsky. The title was changed to signify that it wasn’t primarily the story of Rogen’s character, Fred Flarsky, but more of a two-hander where Theron’s character is equally as important. “I’m only half the story,” Rogen explained. Check out the first Long Shot trailer below. Read More »

If you were a kid in the 1980s or early 1990s, there’s a good chance that you encountered the children’s book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Drawing from folklore and urban legends, the book series written by Alvin Schwartz was made all the more terrifying thanks to the inky, twisted illustrations by Stephen Gammell. Now the book series is coming to life in a film adaptation produced by Guillermo del Toro, and the first Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark trailer (or rather a series of mini-trailers) shows us the kind of terror we can expect.

The lesson in all Liam Neeson movies seem to be: don’t underestimate Liam Neeson. But many men do, and it ends in them getting their heads brutally bashed in by the gravelly-voiced vengeance-seeker.
Neeson has another cold weather thriller on his hands with Cold Pursuit, a remake of a 2014 Norwegian black comedy titled In Order of Disappearance. While the film so far doesn’t seem to have that same dark comedy bent of the original, Lionsgate has released a new clip that could potentially inspire some chuckles.

Update: On Twitter, Rogen has explained the reason for the title change. Our original article follows, and you can read his explanation below.
For a long time, director Jonathan Levine‘s new movie was going by its original title: Flarsky. And then someone at Lionsgate realized that calling a film Flarsky is an invitation to make no money at the box office because it sounds like an off-brand medicinal soda only available in three states, so they’ve changed it. Flarsky is dead. Meet Long Shot.

Even though plenty of Hellboy fans were anxious to see director Guillermo del Toro finish out the franchise he started for the unlikely Dark Horse Comics hero, Universal Pictures simply didn’t want to take a risk on spending millions of dollars to bring it to an end. Instead, Lionsgate picked up the rights to Big Red and decided to reboot the secret weapon of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. And if star David Harbour is to be believed, we’ll be getting a somewhat different version of the character.
Find out what David Harbour had to say about the reboot below, and check out a new Hellboy photo too. Read More »
The John Wick franchise isn’t shy about racking up the kills as the titular assassin tears through the ranks of the secret organization known as The Continental. John Wick: Chapter 2 had a kill count of 128, which was quite the increase from the first film’s count of 84. But John Wick: Chapter 3 is about to outdo them both.
Co-director David Leitch recently discussed what fans can expect from John Wick: Chapter 3, and while he couldn’t say much yet, he did say the kill count this time seems like it will “land slightly North” of the amount of dead bodies from Chapter 2. On top of that, we have a first look at Anjelica Huston as someone who helped John Wick become the man he is today. Read More »

Do you remember the polar bear movie starring Rob Schneider? With a talking bear that decides to visit New York City? Neither do many people, but for some reason, we’re getting a sequel.
Norm of the North: The Keys to the Kingdom is the follow-up to the 2016 Trevor Wall movie Norm of the North, which follows up on the titular bear, now voiced by Andrew Toth, as he gets the keys to the city because people love talking bears, I don’t know. And in a direct rip-off of the far superior talking bear movie, Paddington 2, he gets framed for a crime he didn’t commit. But judging by the Norm of the North: The Keys to the Kingdom trailer, this sequel is nowhere on the same level as Paddington 2.
