Once and Sing Street director John Carney hasn’t directed anything in two years, but he’ll soon be back behind the camera with Modern Love, a new anthology series based on the New York Times column and podcast. While most of his crowd-pleasing movies have focused on music thus far, Carney has assembled a new band this time: a “band” of high-profile actors like Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, John Slattery, and many more to star in this new Amazon series. Check out the full cast list below.

Who knew that Fifty Shades of Grey would inspire more than just seething hot takes and a middling movie trilogy?
The erotic book series by E.L. James was the guilty pleasure for many a real-life book club, and now — astonishingly — it will serve as the springboard for a lusty mom rom-com starring Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen. The definitive actresses of their generation are starring in the aptly titled Book Club.

I caught some of Independence Day on cable during the Fourth of July, and was struck by how Hollywood doesn’t make many movies like that anymore. Sure, massive blockbusters with ensemble casts are a dime a dozen, but the disaster movie genre isn’t what it used to be.
Enter Dean Devlin, the man who wrote and produced Independence Day. His directorial debut, Geostorm, looks to singlehandedly resurrect that cheesy, ludicrously-plotted type of movie to theaters. If you’re looking for a film that features ridiculous concepts like Gerard Butler (300) trying to outsmart malfunctioning satellites that control the weather while Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe, 21) and Abbie Cornish (Limitless) kidnap the President (Andy Garcia), you’re going to love this.

Since Adam Sandler has been making Netflix a little less tolerable with the presence of movies such as The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, it only makes sense that his buddy Kevin James follows him over there too.
The comedian who co-starred with Adam Sandler in Pixels, Grown Ups and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry heads out on his own again with a new action comedy called True Memoirs of an International Assassin. The movie finds Kevin James as an author who sees his novel about a skilled assassin published as a non-fiction memoir, which makes some really dangerous people think that he’s a deadly hitman. Sounds pretty believable, right?

It took eleven different guys to take down Andy Garcia in Ocean’s Eleven, so it should come as no surprise that even Dwayne Johnson will have some trouble facing off with the Oscar nominee in the forthcoming second season of the HBO series Ballers.
The series is essentially Entourage set in the world of sports, but with much more of a focus on the business side of things. Essentially, it’s like Dwayne Johnson is Jeremy Piven’s character, but he’s much less obnoxious and nowhere near as offensive or angry. The second season is premiering later this week, and a new Ballers season 2 trailer shows that Andy Garcia will be a force to be reckoned with for Dwayne Johnson. Read More »
Today marks the last day of shooting for the Ghostbusters reboot from Bridesmaids, The Heat and Spy director Paul Feig. And on wrap day, we’ve just learned of one more cameo featuring one of the stars of the original Ghostbusters from 1984.

Director Paul Feig has been revealing quite a bit from his forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot that’s currently shooting in New York City. We’ve already seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts.
But we still didn’t know what characters the ladies were playing. That changed yesterday when Feig replied to a request to reveal the character names on Twitter from a Ghostsbusters fan and charity organization. Find out the new Ghostbusters character names after the jump! Read More »

In Let’s Be Cops, two friends discover a new (and highly illegal) way to get attention from the opposite sex. Two friends, one a douche and the other kind of a dork, dress up as cops for a costume party. They find, however, that people think they’re actually cops. And the reaction is pretty positive — especially from women who like a guy in uniform. And then things get messy. This new Let’s Be Cops red-band trailer shows how a couple real cops mistake the guys for officers, and the two dudes end up trying to solve an actual crime.
Luke Greenfield directed Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson in the lead roles, while Rob Riggle, Nina Dobrev, James D’Arcy and Andy Garcia round out the cast. Watch the new trailer below. Read More »
