Alexandra Daddario in a heavy metal horror movie? All those incantations and offerings to our Dark Lord have finally paid off my fellow – er, I mean, how lucky are we! Marc Meyers’ satanic panic headbanger flips the script on evil intentions and assembles a kickass girl gang decked out in studded leather. Daddario so often plays the adoring love interest, and I’ve been yearning to see someone twist her rom-com-ready talents into pitch-black realms. We Summon The Darkness kickstarts Satan’s heart in the name of bedeviled slayings, and every actor relishes their wild-child performative opportunities. I think I may have a new favorite Daddario persona. Read More »
Plenty of movies take a cue from Groundhog Day and feature a character who gets stuck in some kind of inexplicable time loop. Edge of Tomorrow, Source Code, Run Lola Run, and most recently Happy Death Day have all used the time loop formula to tell a story, and now it’s time for a new romantic comedy to give it a shot.
Netflix has announced a new movie called When We First Met, which finds Adam Devine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect) as a guy named Noah who stumbles upon a photo booth time machine that allows him to go back in time in an effort to win over the heart of his best friend Avery (Alexandra Daddario), who is getting married to someone else. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »
If you thought we’d gotten past the point where romantic comedies were about two women throwing away their friendship just so they can hook up with a hot guy while on vacation, think again.
The Layover follows two best friends, Alexandra Daddario of San Andreas and Kate Upton of The Other Woman, as they run away from the stress of their life by taking a quick vacation. However, when a hurricane forces them into a layover in St. Louis, they meet a handsome man (Matt Barr), and neither one of them is willing to give up the pursuit. Cue the ridiculous competition where these women commit atrocities against each other just so they can get some.

Baywatch has faced a tsunami of middling to bad reviews, but that won’t stop the comedy-action movie from jetting forward to a sequel, and possibly, a franchise.
Producers and writers are already planning a sequel to Baywatch with the cast, led Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, returning in their roles. Baywatch itself is a big-screen reboot of the popular ’90s TV show starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, and a sequel would somewhat follow the footsteps of the successful movie reboot of 21 Jump Street. Though, according to reviews, that’s the only thing they have in common.

A few studio comedies try to break up the summer blockbuster spectacle every year, but some try to combine the laughs with the action. That’s exactly what the big screen adaptation of Baywatch is trying to do by teaming up Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in what Paramount Pictures hopes will be their own 21 Jump Street.
So far, the trailers for Baywatch have been unimpressive in the comedy department, but a new red band trailer for the summer comedy is easily the best one yet, though it still doesn’t look like the quality buddy cop comedy that it’s trying to be.

Priyanka Chopra, the Bollywood star who now appears weekly on the ABC show Quantico and is set to terrorize the crew as the villainous Victoria Leeds on Baywatch, was conspicuously missing from much of the advertising for the Dwayne Johnson action comedy. She wasn’t on the posters, and she was barely in the official trailer or TV spots.
But that’s finally changed, with the latest trailer for Baywatch, which features Chopra finally catching some sun as the drug-dealing club owner who seeks to shut Baywatch down — all while keeping her fabulous hair intact.

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.
Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

It’s up to Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron to “restore the Baywatch brand.” And it seems like that brand is fast, furious and explosive in the new official trailer for Paramount Pictures’ Baywatch — with plenty of good old-fashioned slow-mo shots thrown in there as well.

Paramount Pictures has dropped the first trailer for Baywatch, the big-screen adaptation of the 1990s TV series about scantily clad hotties running in slow motion. But this isn’t that Baywatch. Yes, there are still super attractive people hanging out on a beach in skimpy swimwear. But this one is much more in the vein of 21 Jump Street the movie, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a pair of mismatched lifeguards who set out to “restore the Baywatch brand.” Ha ha, get it?
Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, and Ilfenesh Hadera play some of the other lifeguards surrounding them, and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) directs. Watch the first Baywatch trailer below.

Principal photography on Baywatch has completed, and with the movie exactly one year away today, Dwayne Johnson shared a postcard featuring the primary cast members hitting the beach. In addition, Paramount Pictures also released what is the first official photo from the movie.
