Sonic the Hedgehog arrives in theaters next month, and with it comes a rap theme song from Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty and Sueco the Child. If you’re getting old, most of those names don’t make any sense, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the 16-bit-styled music video that takes all of those rappers and puts them into Sonic’s video game world. They don’t make music videos for movies like this very often, and even if you don’t like the song, the visuals are still fun. So check out the Sonic the Hedgehog music video below. Read More »
Mean Girls is going to prove that it’s the apex predator of not just the stage, but the big screen as well. Tina Fey will be adapting her Tony-nominated Mean Girls Broadway musical into a feature film, bringing the story back to the big screen nearly two decades after the 2004 high school comedy first hit theaters and inspired the stage adaptation.

Paramount Pictures had to deal with a bit of a nightmare scenario when the reveal of their Sonic the Hedgehog movie was downright laughable. The reaction was so unfavorable that the studio chose to overhaul the design of the SEGA video game character and push the movie back from a November release last year to a February release this year. Thankfully, the new character design has been approved by fans, and it looks like the movie is tracking to have a solid opening for the Presidents Day weekend in February, which also happens to be Valentine’s Day weekend.

The cast of the upcoming back-to-back sequels in the Mission: Impossible franchise is already stacked. Tom Cruise is still leading the charge as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, and he’ll have Rebecca Ferguson back at his side as MI6 agent Ilsa Faust. But the sequels will also feature new cast members like Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Shea Whigham and Nicholas Hoult. Thankfully, it won’t be all new faces in the upcoming sequels though, as one of Ethan Hunt’s most reliable counterparts has been confirmed to return.
Simon Pegg will be part of at least the seventh installment of the upcoming Mission: Impossible franchise, reprising his role as Benji Dunn, the IMF tech guy turned field agent who always has the best gadgets, but doesn’t always use them as efficiently as he should. Read More »

Terminator: Dark Fate attempted to reinvigorate the sci-fi action franchise last year, but fans just didn’t want to take a risk on being disappointed yet again after two false starts in Terminator Salvation and Terminator: Genisys. The movie was a box office disappointment, and that’s rather unfortunate since there was a promising new spark in the franchise here. But perhaps the movie would have fared better if it would have gone in a different direction by getting some help from another time traveling franchise. Find out what we’re talking about in How Terminator: Dark Fate Should Have Ended. Read More »
Just when you thought the G.I. Joe franchise was dead, Paramount Pictures is back with a brand new movie based on the Hasbro toy franchise. But instead of continuing the series that started with G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the studio is heading in a new direction with an origin story for one of the most popular characters in the action figure line-up.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins kicked off production in Japan today with a special event overseas that revealed the film’s official logo and had some of the cast and crew partake in a special blessing ceremony at the Hie-Jinja Shrine in Tokyo, a historical Shinto site that has been around over 500 years. This ninja movie is real, and it’s on the way. Read More »

A Quiet Place was one of 2018’s perfect cinematic storms. A crowd-pleasing horror adventure with a big, emotional heart. A box office smash, grossing $340 million worldwide on a $17 million budget. A critical darling that used its high concept to tremendous effect. A reminder that Emily Blunt is the profoundly talented leading lady we don’t deserve. And perhaps most surprisingly, evidence that John Krasinski has some serious chops as a filmmaker and that “Jim from The Office” made one of the strongest genre films of the decade and probably shouldn’t be referred to as “Jim from The Office” any longer.
But that means A Quiet Place Part II has a lot to live up to now. Can the story of a family struggling to stay together in a post-apocalyptic landscape filled with monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing continue to prove surprising and terrifying and moving? We shall see, but the first proper trailer for the sequel certainly suggests yes.
