John Cena has been on the rise as an actor ever since he showed a completely different side to his talents with a supporting role in Amy Schumer’s romantic comedy Trainwreck. Since then, he led the animated film Ferdinand, starred in the surprisingly great Blockers, tracked down Transformers in Bumblebee, and he’s joining the squad in Fast and Furious 9. But not all of his choices are going to be winners, as evidenced by the trailer for his next movie.
Playing with Fire is a new family comedy that finds John Cena playing a firefighter who takes a trio of kids under his wing after rescuing them from a fire. For some reason, he’s legally bound to take care of these kids until their parents get back from…somewhere. It doesn’t matter, because this looks absolutely atrocious. Read More »
John Leguizamo might best be known for starring in the ill-fated Super Mario Bros. Movie, or maybe voicing Sid the Sloth in the Ice Age franchise. But he’s also quite the accomplished character actor, appearing in movies such as Moulin Rouge, the John Wick franchise, Romeo + Juliet, The Lincoln Lawyer, and, of course, Spawn. However, Leguizamo shines the most in his ongoing series of one-man shows, and a new one called Latin History for Morons is coming to Netflix next month.
Watch the John Legauizamo’s Latin History for Morons trailer below to see what he’s up to this time. Read More »

Like many of you, John Wick kicked my ass when it was released in 2014. I went into John Wick: Chapter 2 expecting to be amazed with the fight scenes (which I was), but I has not anticipated that I would walk out of the theater talking about the worldbuilding of this new film. John Wick 3 is already in development, and I’m very excited to see more chapters in this world.
Lets take a look at what may await us in John Wick: Chapter 3, pieced together from interview comments from director Chad Stahelski, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, actor Keanu Reeves, and more.

UPDATE: We’ve been told this release actually isn’t anything more than an updated version of a 2014 high-definition release with a new Steelbook case. Still, for those who didn’t know this existed, this might be good news.
It’s no secret that the film adaptation of Super Mario Bros. is a complete disaster. The making of the total mess of a video game movie was documented in Blake J. Harris’ book Console Wars (you can read all about it right here). But somehow, there are enough fans of the movie to warrant a release of the movie in high-definition.
Believe it or not, Super Mario Bros. is getting a Blu-ray release next month, and it even has a collectible Steelbook case to keep it safe from anyone who would be crazy enough to steal it for their own collection. Read More »
After becoming one of the most intimidating meth dealers we’ve ever seen, Bryan Cranston is now on the other side of the law, chasing down one of the most notorious drug dealers in history. The Infiltrator tells the story of the federal agent who went undercover as a money launderer in order to take down Pablo Escobar’s infamous drug trafficking empire back in 1986. A new trailer for the crime thriller has just arrived, and it looks like a refreshing bit of counter-programming to the usual blockbuster fare that arrives during the summer.

Jesse Eisenberg is just about the last guy you’d expect to emerge as a lethal agent. It’s easier to buy him as a supervillain, even. But that’s exactly the point of his latest movie, American Ultra.
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh and written by Max Landis, the action-comedy stars Eisenberg as an aimless stoner who’s secretly a highly trained operative. So secretly, in fact, that even he has no idea. Kristen Stewart plays his girlfriend. Watch the latest American Ultra trailer after the jump. Read More »

We’ve seen enough movies based on video games to know that they just don’t seem to work very well for some reason. Whether it’s too much fan service for those who played the games, or maybe video game stories are only fun when you’re the one in control of the main character, Hollywood just can’t crack them.
But before there were dozens of examples of this, Buena Vista Pictures took a swing and missed hard with Super Mario Bros., probably the worst video game movie ever made. Actually, it’s probably one of the worst movies ever made period. And now Honest Trailers has taken aim at the weird half-ass video game movie for your enjoyment.

Think of the most unlikely action hero ever and the name Jesse Eisenberg might come up. Which is exactly why the red band trailer for American Ultra is so surprising. Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), American Ultra is about a young man (Eisenberg) who wants to propose to his girlfriend (Kirsten Stewart) but is then revealed to be a sleeper agent, super spy. The main difference between him and other spies though is he’s a huge stoner, slacker.
Co-starring Topher Grace, Connie Britton, John Leguizamo and others, American Ultra opens August 21. Check out the first American Ultra trailers below.
UPDATE: We’ve added a green band trailer to go along with Thursdays red band. Read More »
