Take the clue-following premise of National Treasure, the kid-centric approach of Spy Kids, and mix a dash of the “spouse doesn’t know about their partner’s secret skills” concept from True Lies, and you get The Sleepover, a new action comedy coming to Netflix later this month.
Malin Åkerman (Rock of Ages) plays a former thief who’s pulled back into the game by villains who force her to reunite with her sexy former partner (Joe Manganiello, Magic Mike) to pull a heist. All of this is quite a surprise for her husband (Ken Marino, Wet Hot American Summer), who had no idea about his wife’s former life as a criminal. But most of the movie seems to center around the kids, who are naturally in over their heads when they get involved. Read More »
The marketing for Pitch Perfect 3 is referring to this as “last call,” so there’s a chance that this truly is the final time audiences will be able to hang out with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and the rest of the Bellas. And while this new trailer for the sequel promises a film that’s just as enjoyable as the first two, it might actually be a good idea for this franchise to go out on top after the curtain falls here, because it seems like it’s reached its natural conclusion.

The Barden Bellas have found a new leader. Trish Sie has just been confirmed to direct Pitch Perfect 3, three months after Elizabeth Banks, who’d directed Pitch Perfect 2, stepped down from the helming gig. Sie’s last feature was 2014’s Step Up: All In, but she might be even better known for her amazing music videos with OK Go including “Here It Goes Again” and “Upside Down & Inside Out.” Read More »

The Step Up film franchise may not have the star power of a Die Hard, the icon status of an Avengers, or the record-shattering box office numbers of a Hunger Games. What it does have going for it is dependability. A new one drops every two years like clockwork, and they all follow pretty much the same formula of dancing + romance + pretty young things.
Based on the first Step Up All In trailer, the latest installment doesn’t stray too much from that template. Ryan Guzman (from Step Up Revolution) and Briana Evigan (from Step Up 2: The Streets) play the leaders of a dance crew trying to win a big Vegas competition. Along the way, they fall in love, or something. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Third is the latest film from Dark City director Alex Proyas. It’s called Gods of Egypt and stars Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Proyas wrote and directs the fantasy adventure, featuring magic, gods, swords and more hits on February 12, 2016.
