The Prodigy Trailer

Since Halloween hit theaters this weekend, studios knew they needed to pack the pre-show with a bunch of horror trailers to get those hungry for scares excited about the terrors to come. Unfortunately, since it’s October, that means we’re talking about horror movies that will get dumped in the early months of 2019, where bad movies go to die.

Judging by the first trailer, The Prodigy just might be one of those movies. The new supernatural horror thriller from director Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact, At the Devil’s Door) has a creepy kid (Jackson Robert Scott) seemingly inhabited by another being, and of course he scares the hell out of his mother (Taylor Schilling) with unnerving behavior and a cheap scare.

‘Orange is the New Black’ Ending With Season 7

orange is the new black ending

Orange is the New Black‘s time is nearly served. The Netflix series will end with season 7, bringing to a close a show that launched back in 2013. This is likely for the best, as the prison dramedy has run out of steam at this point. The final season will arrive on the streaming service in 2019.

The Titan Trailer

In James Cameron’s box office monster Avatar, audiences saw Sam Worthington sent to the stunning planet of Pandora to partake in a new experiment that put his consciousness into the body of an alien race known as the Na’vi. Now a new Netflix sci-fi thriller will have him becoming an alien in a much more terrifying way.

The Titan proposes a premise we’re all too familiar with by now: Earth is dying and we need to find a new planet to live on. However, in this case, our prospective new residence isn’t a new planet, but instead Jupiter’s moon of Titan. But before we can get there, the astronauts being sent to start a new civilization there need to improve their bodies by forcing genetic evolution. Basically, imagine if Captain America went wrong and resulted in an alien transformation along with superhuman traits. You’ll see what we’re talking about in The Titan trailer that just debuted online. Read More »

Take Me trailer

In his feature directorial debut, actor Pat Healy (Cheap Thrills) offers people the chance to purchase a simulated experience of a high-stakes abduction. Healy isn’t playing a real criminal, but his new fake kidnapee, played by Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), may turn into one. Ray Moody’s (Healy) alternative therapy, like most too good to be true jobs in crime movies, quickly turns sour and attracts some heat.

Below, watch the Take Me trailer.

The Overnight trailer

The premise of a married couple losing their sexual mojo after having a kid isn’t new, but Patrick Brice‘s The Overnighters seems to take it in some unexpected directions. The husband and wife in question are played by Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling, and they’re still adjusting to a recent move to Los Angeles.

Eager to make friends, they accept an invitation from a cool hipster dad played by Jason Schwartzman. But once they arrive for their “playdate” with him and his wife (Judith Godrèche), things get weird. Watch The Overnight red-band(that means NSFW) trailer after the jump. Read More »

We see the return of Laura Prepon‘s character (aka “the Bettie Page of Litchfield”) to the inmate roster, there are a few other new faces, and we see the results when Crazy Eyes (Suzanne Warren) makes an effort to write… porn? Sorry, a love story. Check out the Orange Is the New Black S3 trailer below.

Deadpool movie footage

Talk of a Deadpool movie has been around since before the turn of the decade. In 2009, rumors began to circulate that writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were going to pen a script for the film. They did, and the character even appeared on screen that year in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But for years after that, very little happened with the movie. Director Tim Miller was hired, we heard rumblings here and there, but it felt dead. It got to a point where Reese and Wernick were openly hinting to people that they should read the script, which had leaked online.

Then, almost out of the blue, the Deadpool movie got a greenlight and a February 12, 2016 release date. What was the change? Was it a tamer rating? A lower budget? Maybe, but star Ryan Reynolds says the main reason is fan reaction to the leaked test footage. Read more about the Deadpool movie below.

Update: There’s now a list of women who are testing for a key role in the film; we’ve got that below along with Reynolds’ comments.

The Overnight review

Sundance 2015 has barely begun but already, sex is everywhere. Straight, gay, exploratory, odd, difficult, and, whenever possible, hilarious. It’s all here at the fest and The Overnight (not to be confused with doc The Overnighters) fits right in.

Beginning with a couple played by Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling frantically rushing through morning sex before their kid bursts into the room, this is the movie where you’ll see Scott and Jason Schwartzman dance together naked. Like, totally naked. OK, actually about 98% naked. That other 2% is a visual gag carries a hefty comic punch and casts a long shadow over the rest of the story. Even better is a free-sprited, swinging performance from Schwartzman, who bats around the comic stereotype of the LA “cool dad” like a kid with a balloon.

The Overnight is a wild, very funny caricature of the supreme awkwardness of allowing yourself to be truly vulnerable in front of the person you love the most. Read More »
