Gloria Steinem is an American icon, journalist, and social political activist who became the face of the feminist movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Now the story of her revolutionary life is getting an unconventional biopic from Across the Universe director Julie Taymor.
Inspired by Gloria Steinem’s biography My Life on the Road, The Glorias will tell the feminist’s story at various stages of her life, from her childhood years to the 1977 National Women’s Conference and several moments in between and beyond. And playing Steinem will be four different actresses: Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson, and Ryan Keira Armstrong. Watch The Glorias trailer below for a peek at the movie. Read More »
Adam Sandler has tried his hand at getting serious in more than one movie, so it makes sense for his pal and occasional co-star Kevin James to give it a try, too. The former King of Queens gets scary in Becky, a new home invasion thriller that requires James to play the heavy. And you know what? It looks like he’s doing a pretty darn good job. Watch the Becky trailer below.

We’re still a couple months out from Halloween, but the folks at Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line want to get the scares started early by expanding The Conjuring cinematic universe.
Annabelle revealed more of the story behind a possessed doll that was first introduced in The Conjuring in 2013, but it wasn’t quite up to snuff with the kind of terror that director James Wan had delivered before. Maybe that’s because the spin-off was rushed into production after the success of The Conjuring, leaving little time for writer Gary Dauberman to craft a truly compelling and scary horror film. Thankfully, that’s not the case with the new prequel, Annabelle: Creation.
Get a taste of the scares in store for audiences with some new Annabelle: Creation clips below. Read More »
Teaming up two unlikely partners for a buddy cop comedy is a cinematic cliche. That formula gets even more ridiculous when one of those characters is a grizzled, grumpy detective and the other is a precocious, ambitious little kid. We’ve seen this exact scenario play out before in the 1993 family comedy Cop and a Half starring Burt Reynolds, and now that premise is being revived for a reboot.
Cop and a Half: New Recruit sees Lou Diamond Phillips playing a detective not all that dissimilar from the one Burt Reynolds played in the original 1993 version. But this time, the cop in question is teamed up with a spunky 12-year old girl (Lulu Wilson of Ouija: Origin of Evil and Annabelle: Creation) eager to lay down the law. Believe it or not, this is a real movie getting released next week and you can watch the trailer right now. Read More »

2014’s Ouija was a waste of a halfway decent idea, a lazy cash grab cobbled together from bits and pieces of other, better movies. But it cost $5 million to make and grossed over $100 million worldwide, so you know what that means: we’re getting a sequel. Or rather, a prequel.
As the title suggests, Ouija: Origin of Evil goes back to earlier times. Specifically the 1960s, even though Ouija boards were actually invented in the late 19th century and evil definitely goes back way further than that. Anyway, the trouble begins when a fake medium (Elizabeth Reaser) and her two daughters (Annalise Basso and Lulu Wilson) accidentally summon a very real and very nasty spirit. Watch the Ouija: Origin of Evil trailer after the jump. Read More »
