Keanu Reeves signed on to star in the sci-fi thriller Replicas back in 2014. That was…*checks calendar*…four years ago, and the movie still hasn’t come out yet.

The film finally debuted its first trailer last October with the promise that it would be released sometime in 2018, but things have been quiet ever since.
Now a new trailer has arrived – but weirdly, it’s being billed as an “official teaser” that’s almost 45 seconds shorter than the full trailer that dropped last year. What’s going on with this movie? Read More »
How many times can we see the Frankenstein concept of bringing back dead people play out on the big screen, you ask? Short answer: countless times.
