Update: The Hollywood Reporter says NBC has given a formal pilot order to this still-untitled show, and some new details about the plot have come to light. Those new details can be found at the bottom of our original article from October 2017, which begins below.
Plans for Bad Boys 3 may have stalled, but there’s may still be some more action yet in the form of a new Bad Boys TV spin-off. The planned show will focus on Gabrielle Union‘s character from Bad Boys II, an undercover operative with the DEA. While it’s doubtful Will Smith or Martin Lawrence‘s characters will show up, anyone looking for a Bad Boys fix might be keen to give the show a shot.

Talk about Christmas creep: Independence Day hasn’t even rolled around yet, but Universal is already thinking ahead to the holidays. The first Almost Christmas trailer has arrived, putting a bunch of actors you like (including Danny Glover, Kimberly Elise, Omar Epps, Mo’Nique, J.B. Smoove, Romany Malco, and John Michael Higgins) under one roof for a cozy family get-together. Hijinks, shenanigans, and drama ensue, followed by (we’re just assuming here) heartwarming lessons about love and family.
Oh, and Glover gets a chance to say his signature line at one point. You know the one. Watch the Almost Christmas trailer after the jump. Read More »

Of all the films that played at Sundance this year, perhaps none got more hype than Nate Parker‘s The Birth of a Nation. Not only did it get spectacular reviews, it scored the biggest Sundance deal ever, with Fox Searchlight forking over $17.5 million. The distributor promptly set Birth of a Nation for a fall release, right at the start of awards-movie season, and now it’s getting a head start on the marketing by dropping the very first promo.
Parker stars in his own directorial debut as Nat Turner, a devoutly religious slave who becomes a traveling preacher — and, eventually, the leader of the bloodiest slave rebellion in American history. Armie Hammer plays Nat’s owner, and Penelope Ann Miller, Jackie Earle Haley, and Aja Naomi King also star. Watch the Birth of a Nation trailer after the jump. Read More »
On August 25th 2000, Bring It On hit theaters nationwide. Thats right, want to feel old? Its been 15 years since the release of that movie. I’ve always loved that movie for whatever reason, call it a guilty pleasure. I feel like it were released today it would have a bunch of theatrical sequels and the same success that we’re seeing from the like-minded Pitch Perfect franchise.
But what would a real Bring it on Sequel look like? I’m betting that a few years down the line we could see a theatrical Bring It On sequel/reboot with the stars playing mothers, coaches, or teachers. But where might the characters of Bring It On be 15 years later? The cast of the 2000 film give us their answers.

The Pride Lands are ready to welcome a new generation of heroes. Disney Channel is making plans for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar, a Lion King spinoff TV movie intended to launch a new TV series.
The Lion Guard will bring back some familiar faces, and even some familiar voices to go along with them. Rob Lowe and Gabrielle Union will play Simba and Nala, and James Earl Jones and Ernie Sabella return from the original film as Mufasa and Pumbaa. Max Charles (young Peter Parker from The Amazing Spider-Man) plays the new lead, Simba and Nala’s second-born cub Kion.

Every once in a while, a film gets a sequel and it makes you think, “The first movie was a hit?” Think Like A Man is one of those. But the 2012 original starring Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Romany Malco and Gabrielle Union grossed a quiet $91 million dollars and Sony quickly greenlit a sequel. It’s hitting theaters June 20, continuing the story of a group of friends who had some serious relationship issues in the first film. Now, the cast is all back together and they’re in Vegas for a wedding. There, simultaneous bachelor and bachelorette parties threaten relationships once again. Check out the first trailer and poster below. Read More »
The idea behind In Our Nature couldn’t be more simple: a young couple (Zach Gilford from Friday Night Lights, and Jena Malone from Into the Wild) head upstate for a weekend retreat. At their destination, they run into an expected second couple: Gilford’s character’s father, played by John Slattery, who has weekend plans of his own with much younger girlfriend Gabrielle Union.
Things get a little awkward as the two couples circle one another, and as Gilford and Slattery start to work out their family issues. But the trailer also suggests that there are some really good moments as, for example, Malone and Union talk about their own respective romantic situations. Some of those scenes look like they have an appealingly unvarnished honesty. And then is that Slattery hitting on Malone? How weird. Roger Sterling advancing on a young woman? Never! Check out the trailer below. Read More »

On Mad Men, John Slattery proved to be fantastic at letting down his loved ones; on Friday Night Lights, Zach Gilford demonstrated an equal talent for being disappointed in his. So it makes perfect sense that the pair would team up to play a father and son with a rocky relationship in In Our Nature, an indie drama slated to premiere later this week at the South By Southwest Film Festival.
Specifically, Gilford stars as a son who still harbors resentment over his parents’ split. When a scheduling mishap leads to Gilford and his girlfriend (Jena Malone) sharing the family vacation home with his dad and his girlfriend (Gabrielle Union), father and son are forced to come to terms with one another and with the women in their lives. Watch the trailer after the jump.
