Tom Cruise to Star in The Mummy Reboot

Throughout the course of his career, Tom Cruise has covered a variety of genres including drama, comedy, action and sci-fi, but one genre that he has largely neglected up until now has been horror. While that is not a huge surprise considering that horror usually has no use (and no money) for A-list stars, the only real horror movie in his filmography is Interview with the Vampire, which also happens to be a romance. Now this week we are hearing […]

2016 Independent Spirit Award Nominations

Although the Independent Spirit Awards are usually held the night before the Oscars, their nominations are announced a few months earlier and signal the start of awards season, more or less. This year’s list of nominees is led by Todd Haynes’ Carol which scored six nominations, followed by Spotlight and Beasts of No Nation with five apiece. Tangerine, the low budget film shot on an iPhone, is also being recognized with four nods, as is Charlie Kaufman’s Anomalisa. This may […]

New to Theatres This Weekend: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, The Night Before, Secret in their Eyes

There’s no question what the biggest movie of the weekend is going to be, but how will The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 fare compared to previous installments in the series? It seems unlikely that it will match the $150+ million opening of either the first and second movie, but there should be a slight improvement over Mockingjay – Part 1 simply because it is the finale. There are also a few alternatives in wide release this weekend including […]

Stephen King’s 11.22.63 Teaser Trailer Starring James Franco

Netflix has House of Cards and Orange is the New Black while Amazon has Transparent and The Man in the High Castle, but so far Hulu has yet to find that breakout original series that successfully permeates pop culture. Granted, they did renew The Mindy Project and they’ve had a few other small hits, but their upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s 11.22.63 could be the big one they’re looking for. Executive produced by J.J. Abrams, the 8-episode limited series stars […]

The Boss Trailer Starring Melissa McCarthy

Although the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot is obviously the biggest movie that will star Melissa McCarthy next year, she has at least one more movie hitting theatres in 2016. The Boss is directed by McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone, the same guy who brought us 2014’s Tammy. This particular film finds McCarthy playing a Martha Stewart-inspired business mogul who is sent to prison for insider trading. When she re-emerges, she has fallen on hard times and seeks redemption with a Girl Scout […]

Justice League Dark Casting Rumours and Director Shortlist Revealed

Back in 2012, we started hearing some intriguing rumours about a supernatural-flavoured superhero movie in development at Warner Brothers with Guillermo del Toro potentially on board to write and direct. The movie would be based on Justice League Dark, a DC comic book series that brought together such characters as John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Swamp Thing and Zatanna. Del Toro ended up writing the script and the studio supposedly liked it, but the production start conflicted with Pacific Rim […]

Central Intelligence Trailer Starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart

Here’s yet another spy comedy hitting theatres next year that happens to look a lot like Ride Along but with The Rock replacing Ice Cube. Central Intelligence is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re the Millers) and it revolves around a mild-mannered accountant (Kevin Hart) who is reluctantly recruited by an old friend (Dwayne Johnson) to work for the C.I.A. I have to admit, this could actually be a pretty inspired pairing and the trailer hints at plenty of visual […]

New on Netflix: Jessica Jones, W/ Bob and David, The Wolfpack

Marvel’s Jessica Jones arrives on Netflix this weekend where it will try to continue the success they had with Daredevil earlier this year. That’s not the only new original series, however; they’ve also added the new Mr. Show sketch comedy revival W/ Bob and David. Other new titles in both the Canada and U.S. include the Barry Crimmins documentary Call Me Lucky and the feminist superhero art film Felt. Canadians also get the first three seasons of Comedy Bang! Bang! […]

Alex Proyas’ Gods of Egypt Trailer

It’s hard to believe it has been six years now since Alex Proyas’ last film hit theatres, an unfortunate result of the fact that the filmmaker who once brought us The Crow and Dark City has all but fallen off the map. Truth be told, I actually kind of liked Knowing, and I’m rooting for his next film to succeed as well. Sadly, I’m not getting a good feeling about this one, even if it does potentially have some interesting […]
