Transformers 5 gets an official title and teaser image

Because the Transformers films still make more money than the GDP of many small countries put together (and with Age of Extinction holding strong as China's biggest box office opening ever). work on the next film in the franchise is speedin...

 
 
Tetris Trilogy photo

Tetris is getting a big budget, Chinese trilogy

This year we have four videogame adaptations hitting theaters and there's no sign of stopping anytime soon. The only problem with this is none of these films look particularly gripping with Warcraft, Assassin's Creed, and The Angry Bir...

 
 
Harley Quinn photo

Harley Quinn to get her own movie

Suicide Squad isn't even out yet, but DC is pretty sure they've got something good with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. THR is reporting that Warner Bros. will be launching a stand-alone Harley Quinn movie... or a movie centered around H...

 
 
X-Files photo

Fox Exec says everyone will be back for new X-Files season

I watched X-Files when I was growing up like Malcom McDowll watched propaganda. You couldn't tear my eyes away. I couldn't even finish the season 10 reboot. That's why it's with much trepidation that I'm reporting that Fox CEO and...

 
 
Supergirl photo

Supergirl moves to The CW for its second season

Finally! All of my DC Comics superheroes will be one station. The strain of trying to remember two three digit HD channels was beginning to take its toll. Why just last week I left the supermarket with the wrong kid. When trying to keep thi...

 
 
Voltron Trailer photo

Here's a trailer for Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender

Adding to the mass of nostalgia, and to Netflix's ever growing original programming, is Voltron: Legendary Defender. Studios have been trying to figure out what to do with Voltron for years with a movie in mind and a failed Nickelodeon show...

 
 
Black Panther  photo

Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan join Black Panther

Captain America: Civil War may have technically been Captain America's movie, but the shining stars were definitely Spider-Man and Black Panther. In fact, I'm more excited for Black Panther's solo outing than anything else in their line up....

 
 
Review: High Rise photo

Review: High-Rise

High-Rise is a bit all over the place, and it's a bit of a mess, but it also seems to be that way by design--a sort of warped architecture. I'd gone in sort of expecting a vertical version of Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer, but it's not that at...

 
 
Review: The Lobster photo

Review: The Lobster

I still haven't gotten around to seeing Yorgos Lanthimos' Dogtooth, though I intend to. The blackly surreal 2009 film was nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar and drew favorable comparisons to the work of Luis Bunuel and Michael Han...

 
 
Assassin's Creed Trailer photo

First Assassin's Creed trailer parkours into my heart

I guess Jimmy Kimmel Live is the place to go for trailer premieres since the first trailer for Assassin's Creed hit last night. Regardless, I've been interested in this for a while. Based on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed videogame series, Mich...

 
 
 
MMPR Reboot photo

Power Rangers, reboots, and you

I f**king love Power Rangers. When I say love, I mean I've been following the show for twenty-two years. Every awkward season, every bad theme song (Operation Overdrive has a rap, if you were wondering which one was the worst), every castin...

 
 
 
Angry Birds photo

See Angry Birds early and free

With Ratchet & Clank flopping hard at the box office we all must turn to Angry Birds to deliver us the children's video game movie we evidently wanted. Wait, no one wanted it? Well, what if you don't have to pay for it? If you...

 
 
Star Wars photo

A James Bond take on Star Wars

We can all agree that James Bond movies are single-handedly keeping the art of the title credits sequence alive. With most films pushing them to the end of the movie you're seeing less and less quality credit sequences these days. Star Wars...

 
 
Review: Dragon Inn photo

Review: Dragon Inn

While King Hu's 1971 epic A Touch of Zen is his towering masterpiece, his earlier film Dragon Inn may be the best entry point into the director's work. This 1967 adventure is one of the essential early martial arts films, both gor...

 
 
Inferno Trailer photo

First trailer for Ron Howard's Inferno teases more clues

Look, I have to be honest. I hated Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. It's dumb, only has like two good ideas, and it made so much money there had to be a film adaptation of it and its two sequels eventually. Since the first two films in the se...

Universal lost $70 million from The Huntsman: Winter's War

Universal Studios, the folks that brought you nearly SEVEN BILLION dollars worth of brain food last year with hits like Jurassic World, Fast & Furious 7 and Minions may lose as much as $70 million dollars, according to Variety. But don&...

 
 
Money Monster photo

See Money Monster early and free

Money Monster looks like a bit of Hollywood grandstanding about the economic downturn, but with a cast headlined by George Clooney and Julia Roberts and Jodie Foster directing it may actually be able to pull of its ridiculous story. Yo...

Nick reacts to the new Power Rangers look

We got our first look at the Power Rangers movie villain and we know the cast, but now we finally get to the see the Rangers in their suits. As our resident Power Rangers expert we shall now go to Nick Valdez for his initial reaction. ...

Review: Captain America: Civil War

I can guarantee one thing about Captain America: Civil War. When you come out of the theater you will have an incredible appreciation for Chris Evans' biceps. Like... woh. I can almost guarantee another thing (though some people are just cr...

 
 
Review: Eva Hesse photo

Review: Eva Hesse

Almost every creative work is inescapably autobiographical. We can't get outside ourselves, so whatever's been experienced finds expression in the work, whether consciously or unconsciously. Even formal attempts to divest the self from an a...

Justin Lin to direct Space Jam 2 with Lebron James

Holy mother of pearl, it's happening. It's really happening. We're about to return to the Jam and Lebron James is coming with us (also Justin Lin). THR is reporting that the basketball star is set to star in the Looney Toons sequel with Lin...

 
 
Keanu photo

Review: Keanu

I think everyone can agree that Key and Peele was a great show, and I think all of us were at least a little bit sad when it ended. Though it didn't hit with every sketch or every episode, the team's consistent creativity has created some t...

Netflix announces a stand alone Punisher series

If you watched this last season of Daredevil you know that someone finally nailed Punisher. Jon Bernthal absolutely stole the show with his slightly psychotic and entirely compelling portrayal of Frank Castle. People loved it and evide...

 
 
Mother's Day photo

Review: Mother's Day

I'm not going to pull punches here because Mother's Day is easily the worst movie I have seen in years. It is unfathombly offensive, boring, unfunny and terrible in every way possible. I didn't head into it thinking it was going to be great...

 
 
Ratchet & Clank photo

Review: Ratchet & Clank

Ratchet & Clank is the epitome of a film that doesn't do anything wrong, but that doesn't make it right. I suppose I should start by saying that I have not kept up with the games this movie is based on. I played the original and se...

 
 
The new Lara Croft photo

Alicia Vikander cast as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider reboot

Alicia Vikander has been cast as the new Lara Croft for the Tomb Raider reboot, which starts a fine tradition of casting Academy Award winners in the role. Angelina Jolie won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Girl, Interrupted, and Viaknd...

 
 
Review: The Family Fang photo

Review: The Family Fang

All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way... well, unless you're an unhappy family in a movie, in which case you're pretty much alike. Distant/absent parents. A dictatorial patriarch. A strange childhood wh...

'Batman: The Killing Joke' Trailer Released, Rated-R

The trailer for Batman: The Killing Joke has been released and set the stage for a true-to-graphic-novel adaptation. This is the first time a DC Comics movie will be R-rated a fact which is actually not attributable to 2016's succ...

Netflix announces Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer last year and it was pretty glorious. Evidently it was pretty glorious for them too as they've just announced a sequel... or is it a second season? I'm not sure. It's either the third one in...

 
 
Sherlock Holmes photo

Sherlock Holmes 3 gets screenwriter

The two Robert Downey Jr. Led Sherlock Holmes movies made a crap ton of money and, in all fairness, were a descent amount of fun. You'd think in this sequel hungry world that means we'd see another one as quick as possible, but it's been fi...

Tribeca Review: Rebirth

Festivals are a great time to try out films you would never consider in your personal time. Like a Netflix queue, the options are endless and each film only has a short premise and cast listing to get our attention. Since my scheduled per...

 
 
Donkey Kong short photo

Live-action short film does the first board of Donkey Kong

The first board of Donkey Kong is easily recognizable. It may be on the same iconic level as the Pac-Man maze and 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. It's the stuff of playgrounds, construction sites, and obstacle courses, and Banks has made a short...

Tribeca Review: The Banksy Job

There are cock and bull stories and there are shaggy dog stories and there are complete piss-takes. The Banksy Job is kind of a mix of all three. At its center is a Bansky obsessive who goes by the artsy sobriquet AK47. His real name is And...

Tribeca Review: Nerdland

Nerdland was the first film to stand out to me when I first signed on to cover the Tribeca Film Festival this year. Everything about it appealed to me. It's the first full length feature from Titmouse, an animated company most associated wi...
