There has always been a big market for direct-to-video sequels. Back in the Ye Olden Tymes, you could walk down the “New Releases” section of your friendly neighborhood video rental establishment and find low-rent sequels to some of your favorite hits from a decade earlier. The connections to the original film usually ended with the title, but there was something oddly fascinating about this kind of junk. These movies existed simply to trick uninformed movie viewers into watching something rushed out on the cheap just because it has a familiar title.
And while we may be living in the age of streaming, it’s nice to see this ugly, low-budget torch picked up by the likes of Kindergarten Cop 2. The first trailer for this 26-years-in-the-making sequel has arrived and it looks just about as bad as you’d expect for a 2016 family comedy starring Dolph Lundren.

We’re still digesting Star Wars: The Force Awakens, even as we rush ahead with last-minute Christmas preparations. But in this hectic time, let’s not forget to take some time and appreciate one film that’s celebrating a landmark anniversary. That would be Kindergarten Cop, which turns 25. And what better way to celebrate than by taking a first look at its forthcoming sequel, Kindergarten Cop 2?
Yes, Kindergarten Cop 2 is still happening, and we actually have the pictures to prove it. Dolph Lundgren replaces Arnold Schwarzenegger as the tough-guy cop who goes undercover as a grade-school teacher, with hopefully hilarious results. Get your Kindergarten Cop 2 first look after the jump. Read More »
Don’t bother checking your calendar, because it’s not April Fools’ Day. But even knowing that, if someone told me that there was a Kindergarten Cop 2 on the way starring Dolph Lundgren, I simply wouldn’t believe them, because it sounds so ridiculous.
But then again, after a couple seconds and reconsideration, I would probably end up believing them, because it sounds so ridiculous. Plus, there are actually some set photos to back up news that The Expendables franchise, Masters of the Universe and Rocky IV star is currently shooting a sequel to Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s comedic action thriller from 1990.

These days, animation isn’t as defined by age as it once was. Once upon a time, a Disney movie was only thought to be for kids. But recently, Pixar has tackled mature themes, the humor of South Park has become a cultural institution, Star Wars is an animated TV series, comic book characters have cartoons and thanks to genres like anime, R-rated animation isn’t an oxymoron.
Enter Justin White, an up and coming artist made popular through sites like Threadless. He’s decided to take that thought one step further and turn some of your favorite live action movies and TV shows in to animation. His first solo show is called Rated G and opens at Gallery 1988 Melrose, in Los Angeles on Friday. We’re proud to exclusively the entire show.
White’s familiar yet flithy animated style has reimagined scenes from 30 films and shows never meant for animation. Films like Fight Club, Fargo, Casablanca, The Breakfast Club, Oldboy, Kindergarden Cop, Alien, Reservoir Dogs, There Will Be Blood and a whole lot more have been reimagined as high quality animation cels. He even tackled TV shows like Community, The Office, Breaking Bad and more.
After the jump check out all 30 images from the show and find out when and how you can grab them. Read More »

Before the Best Director nomination, before Up in the Air, Juno, Thank You For Smoking and even his wonderful short films, director Jason Reitman appeared as an “actor” in a bunch of films. In the 1980’s and 1990’s, Jason’s father, director Ivan Reitman, gave him small cameo roles in some of his movies. Jason played Granger Grandson in Twins, Brownstone Boy #2 in Ghostbusters II, the Vice-President’s son in Dave, the Wrong Kid in Alley in Father’s Day, and most importantly Kissing Boy in Kindergarten Cop.
InContention has dug up the tape of Reitman’s appearance in the 1990 Schwarzenegger comedy and put it online for all to see. In the scene, Arnold’s character Detective John Kimble is searching the school hallways, when he bursts into an abandoned class room, interrupting two youngsters making out.
This was Jason Reitman’s first kiss. Not just his first on screen kiss… but his first kiss with a girl,period. Talk about pressure. And imagine getting directions from your father who is yelling off to the side of a film camera. Thanks to Kris Tapley, we have the video, embedded after the jump.
