Judge Dredd: Superfiend Trailer

Although the 2012 comic book adaptation Dredd was a box office bomb, earning just $35 million worldwide on a $50 million budget, earlier this year we heard that a sequel (or more likely prequel) might still be a possibility due to strong DVD, Blu-ray and VOD sales. Fans have been busy trying to raise support and awareness with online campaigns and now this month executive producer Adi Shankar is saying thank you to those fans by launching an unofficial animated ...

St. Vincent Review: Bill Murray Is Mesmerizing

Bill Murray is Vincent and it’s safe to say he’s about as far away from being a Saint as can be when St. Vincent commences. And also, to describe his latest classic Murray character as a curmudgeon in this dark comedy is merely just the beginning of how we’d label this guy. He’s a laundry list of personality traits that are an utter delight for the audience to witness, but less than enjoyable for, frankly, anyone who has to meet ...

Ouija Review: Board Game Terror or Just Bored?

Of all the board games that could be made into a movie, Ouija probably makes the most sense. Especially if you’re going to keep the film in the horror genre, this thing could practically write itself. And unfortunately, that’s what the Ouija movie feels like -- a film that not too much thought was put into and therefore the result is an experience that is hardly scary and not even a little bit thrilling. Debbie and Laine are BFFs and ...

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Poster Revealed: The Gang’s All Here!

We have to say that the newly released international poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the best so far! Not only does it feature our main hero, Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and Gandalf (Ian McKellen), but pretty much everybody else in an artful display of movie poster perfection. We’ve got The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies teaser trailer and with that December 17 release day inching closer, we think it is about time for ...

Insidious: Chapter 3 Trailer

Following up on the recent news that James Wan will return to direct The Conjuring 2, here is a trailer for one of the other sequels that he produced but did not direct. Insidious: Chapter 3 marks the directorial debut of Leigh Whannell, Wan’s frequent writing partner and co-creator of the Insidious franchise. I suppose that might give it a little more credibility than Annabelle, although it just looks like more of the same to me. This installment does not ...

Christian Bale Will Play Steve Jobs After All

Earlier this year, the blogosphere was buzzing with news that David Fincher was in talks to reteam with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin for a Steve Jobs biopic. Fincher had a few major stipulations before signing on, however, one of which was that he would only direct the movie if Christian Bale played the lead role. In the end, he dropped out of the project (possibly due to salary demands) and Danny Boyle signed on instead. Strangely, Boyle’s choice for the lead ...
