Must Watch: First Teaser Trailer for James Bond 007 in 'Spectre'

Spectre Teaser Trailer

"Welcome James… It's been a long time. And finally, here we are." Sony Pictures and Eon Productions have unveiled the first official teaser trailer for Bond 24, titled Spectre, starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007, and once again directed by Sam Mendes. The new Bond movie is currently in the middle of filming right now, but they've dropped a first teaser since there's plenty of footage from Austria (and elsewhere) anyway for a tease that makes this look like a fine follow-up to Skyfall. We also get a glimpse at the appearances of Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny in this first tease, but there's more to come since this is barely a tease. A very dark first tease, but enough. Get your first look at Spectre.

Bill Hader Joins the Cast of Steven Spielberg's 'The BFG' Adaptation

Bill Hader

After Judd Apatow's latest comedy Trainwreck played South by Southwest earlier this month, the reviews frequently said that this might be the filmmaker's best work yet. Thankfully, in addition to Amy Schumer making a big screen splash as the leading lady, "Saturday Night Live" alum Bill Hader is also a force to be reckoned with as the comedienne's love interest, and now he's getting ready to work with another Hollywood heavy-hitter. Deadline reports Skeleton Twins star Bill Hader has joined the cast of The BFG, the adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's book of the same that that is being directed by Steven Spielberg.

The New York Yankees Flawlessly Reenact Scene from 'The Sandlot'

The Sandlot

In the sports world, there are few teams that are hated more than the New York Yankees, even by people living in the Big Apple. But you can't deny that people just can take their eyes off those damn pinstripes. Anyway, even if you absolutely hate the Yankees, there's a good chance they'll be redeemed ever so slightly with this amusing video that some of the teammates put together to promote the arrival of the new baseball season. It features some of the players (don't ask me who, because that's not my bag), flawlessly reenacting a scene from The Sandlot when Smalls finally learns who Babe Ruth is after losing the autographed ball.

Paramount Planning Multi-Part 'Transformers' Sequel and Spin-Offs

Transformers

We've known for awhile that more Transformers sequels were on the way, especially since Mark Wahlberg is signed for multiple movies, and Transformers: Age of Extinction was meant to be the start of a new trilogy. But now it sounds like Paramount may have even grander plans for the toy-based franchise. Deadline reveals that the studio is in talks with Akiva Goldsman to shepherd a multi-part sequel to continue the Transformers franchise, as well as potential spin-offs based on Hasbro's toyline. Basically, Paramount seems anxious to create their own Marvel-esque universe for the Transformers. More below!

Model Alessandra Ambrosio Joins 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2'

Alessandra Ambrosio

If you saw the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last year and thought that it needed more supermodels, then you are in luck. THR reports that Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio is taking a role in the forthcoming sequel from Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes. I can't help but think that this is Michael Bay's doing as one of the producers of the new franchise, especially since the director gave another Victoria's Secret model, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, her big screen debut in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Megan Fox is already playing April O'Neil, so who is Ambrosio playing?

Extended 'Terminator: Genisys' UK TV Spot Tries to Save the World

Terminator: Genisys

"We're here to stop the end of the world." If you've been waiting to see some more footage from Terminator: Genisys, our friends across the pond have you covered. A new extended TV spot from the United Kingdom has just surfaced with a whole bunch of new footage from the film, including our first look at J.K. Simmons in the film (sadly the scene in question doesn't look very good), and a glimpse at what appears to be a new Terminator model (perhaps that's who Matt Smith will be playing in the film). The Terminator films have never been deadly serious, but this one just feels far too campy and silly for my taste.

First Look: 'Deadpool' Asks to Draw Him Like One of Your French Girls

Deadpool

Production on the anticipated 20th Century Fox adaptation of Deadpool just officially began last week as Ryan Reynolds and some of his co-stars revealed some photos from behind the scenes, mostly of the chairs they sit in on set during production. But now we finally get some good stuff as Reynolds has just taken to Twitter to post the first official photo of himself in wardrobe as Deadpool. And in perfect Merc with a Mouth fashion, he's posing on a bear rug in front of a fireplace, not unlike one of Jack's French girls from Titanic. At least we know that Deadpool will have his signature sense of humor for this feature film. Look!

Review: Ferrell & Hart Only Reach Half-Mast in Forgettable 'Get Hard'

Get Hard

The first thing we see, the first thing we hear, in Get Hard, the new comedy vehicle for Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, is Ferrell himself crying uncontrollably into the camera, more screams coming from him than actual tears. It’s a good, and early, indication of where the comedy in Get Hard lies. The comedic co-leads combine their greatest hits for the film, Hart’s size and stature coming up a time or two in humorous conversation and Ferrell, well, being Will Ferrell. The schtick may be wearing thin, but the two certainly know how to get the laugh-track going. It may never rise to the heights of Ferrell’s better, earlier efforts, and Hart has definitely accomplished more with less. Though the film never finds its way to full-blown belly laughs, Get Hard definitely knows how to make an audience keep chuckling consistently. More below!

Jeremy London & Ethan Suplee Confirmed to Return for 'Mallrats 2'

Mallrats

Earlier this week, Kevin Smith confirmed the return of Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty reprising their character in Mallrats 2. At the time, Smith was touting that he still had six to go, and it looks like two more have been locked down. Jeremy London, who played the pining ex-boyfriend of Claire Forlani in the original 1995 film, will be back as T.S. Quint. We're not sure where his relationship stands after the two got married at the end of the original Mallrats, but we'll surely find out. In addition, one of the memorable side characters from the mall will be back with Ethan Suplee back as William, who finally saw that sailboat.

Jake Gyllenhaal Takes a Beating in Trailer for Fuqua's 'Southpaw'

Southpaw

"I can't lose my daughter. I'll give you my everything." We'd already gotten a first look at a ripped Jake Gyllenhaal for his role in Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama Southpaw, but now that the first trailer has arrived, it's clear that this isn't just another boxing movie. Gyllenhaal plays a champion who has his life torn away form him piece by piece, leaving him a shell of the man he used to be. There's a really meaty story here, and the redemption that Gyllenhaal's character seeks isn't just for boxing glory. This is a summer release, but I hope this ends up getting Gyllehaal the Oscar nomination he didn't get for Nightcrawler.

Viral Sci-Fi Short 'Sundays' Grabbed by Warner Bros. for Feature Film

Sundays

After raising $50,000 on Kickstarter, filmmaker Mischa Rozema and his buddies from an Amsterdam production house called PostPanic made a short sci-fi film called Sundays, and it went viral online on Monday. Well, the short created a frenzy in Hollywood as Deadline reports at least three studios weren't fighting for the rights to the short, as well as the talent that is Mischa Rozema, and Warner Bros. came out on top with a deal to turn the short into a feature film. This is the new way to break into the exclusive club that is Hollywood, and it's undoubtedly a dream come true for Rozema and his team. Wanna see the short?

Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Lead Fox Searchlight's 'Force Majeure' Remake

Force Majeure

Even though the Swedish drama Force Majeure wasn't eligible for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, it was still one of the best international offerings of 2014, winning a bunch of awards that are the Swedish equivalent of the Oscar, as well as the Un Certain Regard jury prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. The film is available on Netflix Instant now, but for those who just can't handle subtitles or would rather see the same story adjusted to your own American sensibilities, THR reports Fox Searchlight has picked up the rights to remake with "Veep" and "Seinfeld" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus in talks to star.

Gareth Edwards & Josh Trank Are Coming to Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars: Celebration 2015

We already know Star Wars Celebration next month is going to have a huge kick off with J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy on hand, likely showing off the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens before it arrives around the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. And now it sounds like there might be some news on the developing standalone films, because StarWars.com has announced that Gareth Edwards, the director of Star Wars: Rogue One and Josh Trank, the director of the next untitled spin-off, will be coming to the event to "share their experiences as the newest members of the Lucasfilm creative family."

'The Founder' with Michael Keaton Gets Awards Release in Fall 2016

Michael Keaton

Briefly: Even though Michael Keaton didn't win an Oscar for his performance in Birdman, it sounds like The Weinstein Company thinks he's got another chance with his next project The Founder. Keaton is playing Ray Kroc, the salesman from Illinois who picked up a burger operation in 1950s Southern California and turned it into McDonald's, which would become a multi-billion dollar fast-food chain in the world. The Blind Side director John Lee Hancock will be at the helm of the film with a script from Big Fan scribe Robert Siegel, and now THR reports the film has been set for a pretty prime awards season release on November 25th, 2016. We'll certainly be looking forward to seeing this one late next year. Stay tuned.
