After spending around five years or so of his life making The Amazing Spider-Man movies, director Marc Webb returned to movies much smaller in scale. Webb’s first post-Spidey gig, Gifted, was well liked and struck a chord with audiences, making $24 million at the box-office. His next drama, The Only Living Boy in New York, doesn’t look as accessible, based on a trailer that’s maybe a tad overstuffed.
It is the next feature from the director of (500) Days of Summer, though, and it does star Jeff Bridges, Pierce Brosnan, Cynthia Nixon, and Kate Beckinsale, so the Only Living Boy in New York trailer isn’t without some promise.

Holy shit, they actually made five Underworld movies.
I mean…did you know that there were five Underworld movies? I think everyone knew that there were two or three of them, maybe a fourth one. But nooo. Over the course of 13 years, the Powers That Be have quietly made five movies where Kate Beckinsale plays a black leather corset-wearing vampire who shoots werewolves in the face while respectable British actors ham it up on the sidelines. How did that happen?
Anyway, a new Underworld Blood Wars trailer has arrived and it’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect from a new Underworld movie.

Over the past couple years, there has been plenty of discussion about the future of Marvel’s vampire hybrid character Blade. Brought to the big screen before the comic book craze truly began with X-Men in 2000, Blade was played by Wesley Snipes for three films, including one directed by Guillermo del Toro and one starring future comic book star Ryan Reynolds. But since then, fans have been hoping for more.
We’ve heard rumblings of Blade 4 with Wesley Snipes coming back as the titular character, a potential Netflix TV series from Marvel Studios (who reacquired the rights to the character in 2013) and even a movie following Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey. Now confirmation of some kind of Marvel project comes from a surprising source: Underworld star Kate Beckinsale.
Find out about the potential Marvel Studios Blade plans after the jump. Read More »
The Underworld franchise is now over 13 years old. The fifth installment in the series, Underworld: Blood Wars, isn’t another prequel like Underworld: Rise of the Lycans; it’s another sequel following Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a vampire with a deep fondness for tight black leather and a real knack for disposing of Lycans. At first, Underworld: Blood Wars was going to be a reboot, but Beckinsale decided to return to her role for the fourth time.
Below, watch the Underworld: Blood Wars trailer.

It’s hard to believe, but we’re coming up on the fifth film in the Underworld franchise. Originally, this sequel started out as a reboot that Kate Beckinsale wasn’t going to be involved in, but the actress returned to the lead role as Selene, and the movie was retooled as just another sequel. Now the first trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars has arrived, and you’ll see that it’s not much different than the first Underworld movie from all the way back in 2003.

The Disappointments Room was one of the movies impacted by Relativity’s bankruptcy. D.J. Caruso‘s horror film hasn’t been delayed as long as Before I Wake (watch that trailer here), but it started shooting back in 2014, and it was originally scheduled to come out earlier this year. Relativity will release the movie, which stars Kate Beckinsale, in limited release next month, on the same date they had last scheduled Before I Wake.

Note: With Love & Friendship in limited release this weekend, we’re re-running our review from the Sundance Film Festival.
Jane Austen may have a reputation as a romantic, but I’d argue that her real forte is as a humorist. She’s second to none when it comes to elegantly written, sharply observed comedies about the foibles of England’s upper classes, combining a wry, biting wit with a genuine sense of affection for the characters she’s created.
Naturally, this makes Austen’s work the perfect source of inspiration for Metropolitan and Last Days of Disco director Whit Stillman, who has brought her novella Lady Susan to life in the laugh-out-loud hilarious Love & Friendship. Kate Beckinsale plays Lady Susan herself, a cunning widow out to secure her position in society via favorable marriage matches for herself and her daughter. Read More »
