Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser Teaser Trailer

When it comes to sequels that no one really asked for, Joe Dirt 2 has got to be up there. Still, it’s easy to see why this is something that David Spade was pursuing as the original Joe Dirt is one of the few movies where didn’t play second fiddle to someone else (ie. Chris Farley). This is one of two original films that Crackle will be releasing this year, along with Dead Rising: Watchtower (which already debuted to very ...

Matthew Vaughn to Direct New Flash Gordon Movie

Matthew Vaughn’s last three films established him as a director who enjoys playing with genre in interesting ways while also bringing a hip retro aesthetic to the table. Now it looks like his next project will find him updating another old school genre favourite that needs to be re-introduced to modern audiences: sci-fi hero Flash Gordon. The property has been moving toward a reboot for years now, hoping to erase memories of the campy 1980 film. But if anyone can ...

Watch the Teaser for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer

As much as I hate posting teasers for trailers, this one is so highly anticipated that it is a bit of an exception. Zack Snyder confirmed that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be arriving this Monday, April 20th and Warner Brothers will be hosting special screening events in IMAX theatres. You can RSVP for these screenings via the official site, although it doesn’t seem to work in Firefox for some reason. It is not ...

Patty Jenkins Takes the Reins on Wonder Woman, Angelina Jolie Rumoured for Captain Marvel

Well that sure didn’t take long. Just two days after it was reported that Michelle MacLaren had exited the Wonder Woman movie, Warner Brothers has already locked down a replacement. Ironically, it is a filmmaker that was once attached to direct Thor: The Dark World for Marvel. Patty Jenkins (Monster) left that project due to creative differences, although some sources claimed she was fired by Marvel because she wasn’t acting “decisively” enough. Now she has reportedly signed on to direct ...

The Gallows Trailer

Although most of the horror movies coming out this summer are remakes or sequels, there is one upcoming original horror film that is getting a prime July release slot courtesy of Warner Brothers. Up until now, we didn’t know much about The Gallows aside from the fact that it was produced by Jason Blum and written and directed by newcomers Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing, but this week the first teaser trailer has surfaced online. It doesn’t really get into ...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer #2

Star Wars Celebration is currently underway in Anaheim today and fortunately for those of us at home, they are live streaming many of the panels online. The kick-off panel ended, as expected, with the reveal of a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Although it initially seems to be following the format of the first teaser with just a series of clips set to a voiceover (courtesy of Mark Hamill this time), it eventually goes on to reveal ...

Film Junk Take Two: Chappie and Robot & Frank

Take Two is a new feature where we arbitrarily choose two movies and compare them. Then we call out the smart moves, the epic misses, and leave you with a takeaway. Assuming there is one. Let the comments begin. As a warm up for the release of Ex Machina, our third Take Two compares two movies that would seem to be the same. They both take a well worn SF subject: robots and their relations with humans. But their treatments ...

New to Theatres This Weekend: Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Monkey Kingdom, Unfriended

We’ve got quite a few new releases hitting theatres this weekend, although whether or not any of them are worth seeing is another story. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is probably the biggest release of the week and the one that could potentially take down Furious 7, but the social media horror film Unfriended seems to be generating some positive word of mouth and could be a surprise hit. The latest Disneynature documentary Monkey Kingdom is also in wide release ...

Ryan Gosling in Talks for Blade Runner Sequel

As fans continue to buzz over the appearance of Harrison Ford in the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we have some news about another big Harrison Ford sci-fi sequel that is finally starting to take flight. The as-of-yet untitled Blade Runner sequel has been in development for a while now, but after gaining a director in Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) earlier this year, the project is starting to become more than just internet clickbait. From what we know ...

The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) Trailer

Back in 2009, Tom Six’s The Human Centipede (First Sequence) became a breakout indie horror hit thanks to its ridiculous premise and repulsive content. But while many people had a certain amount of fun with the original, his black-and-white sequel pushed things too far for many viewers, becoming annoying and aggressive instead. Now, true to his word, Tom Six is back to complete the trilogy with The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) whether we want it or not. The premise ...
