But despite widespread criticism of Howden’s behavior, which sparked verbal attacks and death threats against the writers he targeted, distributor Saban Films confirmed that they still intend to release Guns Akimbo this week as planned.

Kevin Smith Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

In Kevin Smith‘s breakout debut film Clerks, which launched an interconnected series of movies set in the “View Askewniverse,” one of the main characters worked at a video rental store. The movie was set in the mid-1990s, so that occupation made sense.

Now, 25 years later, Smith is filming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which is also set in that cinematic world – but today, video rental stores are no more. In the caption of a new set photo, Smith explains how he convinced Redbox to come in as a replacement and teases how his new movie features “one of the funniest sequences [he’s] ever shot.”

trading paint trailer

John Travolta‘s film choices have become increasingly, let’s say…interesting. After the 2018 two-fer that was Gotti and Speed Kills, the actor is ringing in 2019 with Trading Paint, a sports drama in which he stars as a washed-up race car driver for whom it’s “been a long time” since he was “somebody.” Cheers for unintentionally meta-dialogue!

siberia trailer

One of the best things about the success of the John Wick series is that it’s giving Keanu Reeves plenty of work again. And yes, while some of the films seem to be heavily John Wick-adjacent, who would say no to watching Reeves kick butt and take names — this time, in Russia?

Reeves latest film is Siberia, a romantic crime thriller in which Reeves stars as an American diamond merchant who falls in with Russian hit men, and falls in love with a Russian woman.

war on everyone trailer

Michael Peña’s only 2016 release was Collateral Beauty. Alexander Skarsgård had Zoolander 2 and Legend of Tarzan. Needless to say, this has not been a great year for them. Thankfully, their 2017 already looks way more promising, thanks to the upcoming release of War on Everyone.

Directed by John Michael McDonagh (Calvary, The Guard), this dark comedy stars Peña and Skarsgård as a pair of cops working in New Mexico. But don’t assume they’re the good guys — this pair is so crooked, even the criminals they deal with seem taken aback. When they get mixed up with a strip club manager (Caleb Landry Jones) and his even shadier boss (Theo James), they realize they may be in deeper than they’d intended. Tessa Thompson also stars. Check out the War on Everyone trailer below.  Read More »
