Deadpool Movie photo

Deadpool movie actually happening, gets release date

Folks, is this real? Is this truly, truly real? It seems 20th Century Fox is finally fulfilling the promise made long ago (which possibly is attributed to the test footage "leak" a while back) with an X-Men spin-off starring Deadpool. ...

 
 
Ghost Kreme photo

Krispy Kreme is releasing Ghostbusters inspired donuts

Everyone, I really really like donuts. Whether they're spelled "doughnuts" (i.e. the wrong way) or "donuts" (the right way), they're just always so damn tasty. You know what's not tasty? Ghostbusters. That film never inspired any particular...

 
 
 
Fury Trailer photo

First official trailer for Fury, starring Brad Pitt

David Ayer is one of my favorite writer/directors. From Training Day, The Fast and Furious, to End of Watch, he's always impressed me with his smaller dialogue moments around hefty action scenes. Looks like we'll be getting that in spades ...

 
 
Raid 2: Berandal Review photo

Review: The Raid 2: Berandal

I will admit that I have not seen every movie that has ever been made. I have not seen every action film, martial arts film, or even all of the most revered of the action and martial arts films. I’ve seen my fair share, but there are ...

Liz's 5 Hottest Movie Hunks of 2013

2013 had its fair share of hot ladies in the movies, but let us not, let us never, forget to celebrate the hot dudes the movies of 2013 blessed us with as well. From motorcycle misfits to vigilante justice cowboys to sentimental writers, th...

Flix for Short: Tim Daly's Batman vs. Superman

Key & Peele photo

Judd Apatow working on movie for Key & Peele

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's Key & Peele's sketch comedy show on Comedy Central is absolutely genius. While the two may have been around for a long time (some will recognize the duo from their stints on MADtv), they're really h...

 
 
Trick 'r Sequel photo

Trick 'r Treat gets a sequel, Trick 'r Treat 2

If you haven't seen 2007's Trick r' Treat, you should remedy that immediately. It's one of the best slasher films, nay horror films in recent memory. It's an anthology of stories akin to classics like Creepshow (with comic book transit...

 
 
Hellraiser remake photo

Clive Barker working on a Hellraiser remake

Hellraiser is quite an interesting franchise. I don't want to necessarily label it as the most "niche" of the horror monster genre, but its overt S&M themes make it one of the few franchises that both stands out, yet sticks itself in a ...

Tim Burton in talks for Beetlejuice 2, Keaton returning

KatzSmith Productions has been kicking around the rights and ideas for a Beetlejuice rebootquel for awhile now, so we all knew it was going to exist someday in some capacity. Most of us feared that a new Beetlejuice would somehow ruin our c...

 
 
Treehouse of Horror photo

Watch Del Toro's Simpsons Treehouse of Horror couch gag

The Simpsons has been around for a long, long time. I may be the only one who believes this, but I want the show to keep going for as long as it can. As the show enters its 25th season, one of the staples of the show has become its annual ...

 
 
This is the End photo

This is the End getting re-released in theaters soon

This is the End was the best film of the Summer hands down (Fast & Furious 6 notwithstanding). It brought the biggest surprises, biggest laughs, and most memorable moments (that finale had to be the greatest thing I've seen in years). S...

 
 
Ellen the Oscars host photo

Ellen DeGeneres hosting the 86th annual Academy Awards

For awhile it seemed that The Academy just wanted Seth MacFarlane to host the 2014 Oscars (despite his use of anti-women jokes), but then he dropped out because he was too busy. Scrambling to find a host with the same amount of pull (MacFar...

 
 
More Rocky movies photo

Michael B. Jordan to star in Rocky spin-off, Creed

First of all, I'd like to go on record as saying the Rocky saga is favorite franchise of all time. More than Godzilla and The Simpsons combined. So when someone says they're making more of them (you guys weren't around for Rocky B...

 
 
Gatchaman Trailer photo

Trailer: Gatchaman

Super Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (or known as Battle of the Planets in the English version) was one of my dad's favorite cartoons. Naturally this meant that I watched a ton of it myself, so I'm very invested in this (although I really ha...

 
 
Expendables 3 photo

Expendables 3 adds Cage, Chan, Snipes and Jovovich

Okay, I'm going to type this calmly. You know how awesome The Expendables was when Sylvester Stallone, Ahnuld Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis had that one scene together? You know how awesome The Expendables 2 wasn't because it decided to ...

Dredd is still the law photo

Karl Urban says Dredd sequel still possible

Dredd was a fantastic movie that was horribly ignored because reasons. Then suddenly, everyone realized how badass it was. And like The Raid: Redemption (which is already getting a sequel), Dredd gained a following through home video. Now w...

Trailer: Fast and Furious 6

Here's the final trailer for Fast and Furious 6, one of my most anticipated films of the Summer. Although all roads no longer lead to the sixthquel, it sure feels that way by the look of this trailer. There's some repeated footage of previ...

Man of Steel Zod viral photo

General Zod has slow internet in new Man of Steel viral

Although this premiered online yesterday, I actually didn't see this until it played during the MTV Movie Awards. While it was just a commercial, it actually made Man of Steel look a lot better than any of the trailers (or weird looking im...

James Wan in talks to direct Fast and Furious 7

It's been quite a roller coaster for Fast and Furious 7 over these last two weeks. First Universal increased the rate of production, then Justin Lin (faithful director for four of the series' films) backs out, and finally Universal scramble...

Boyle planning for Trainspotting sequel

I have to give it to Danny Boyle; Trainspotting is basically my favorite film by him. That says a lot because he has done so many great films like Sunshine, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, and 127 Hours. I’m incredibly hesitant about h...

Super Bowl TV spot for Fast and Furious 6
