Must Watch Trailer for Creed Starring Michael B. Jordan:
Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The rules have been reset. It's time to start anew. Now playing in theaters is Terminator Genisys, the return of the Terminator series, this time directed by Alan Taylor (of Thor: The Dark World). Arnold Schwarzenegger is back, but the rest of the cast is new: Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons and Byung-hun Lee as the T-1000. In Genisys, John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984 nothing is as he expected. So how is it? Better than expected, or not? Is it worth it for Arnold again, or not even that? Once you've seen it yourself, leave a comment below with your thoughts on Terminator Genisys.
Will they finally pass Go and collect $200? It sounds like it will happen this time! Lionsgate has announced officially that they're moving forward on development with a Monopoly movie, the next big franchise being readied based on a Hasbro brand. For years and years we covered development on Ridley Scott's version of a Monopoly movie at Universal, and it seemed like it was getting close to happening at one point. However, this new version doesn't have a director involved just yet. Instead, they say that writer/director Andrew Niccol (of Gattaca, Lord of War, In Time, The Host and Good Kill most recently) will be writing the screenplay. Not directing, just writing. That's the only bit of news other than that this is coming soon.
"Is that all you've got?" Amplify Releasing has debuted the official US trailer for Xavier Dolan's other film Tom at the Farm, which he wrote and directed (and starred in) back in 2013. The film first premiered at festivals two years ago and has been waiting for a US release ever since, despite hitting theaters in Canada and Europe in spring of 2014 (and in the meantime releasing his other film Mommy). Dolan stars as Tom, a grieving man who heads to a rural farm to meet his lover's family. It's a very mysterious, quirky, odd, but beautiful thriller of sorts. We featured another trailer for this two years ago, but this new one is also worth watching. Co-starring Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy & Evelyne Brochu. This one is recommended.
Heavy on hardware and low on CPU, Terminator Genisys blasts onto the screen marking the return of one of the action genre's kings, both in terms of star power and franchise. The fifth film in the series, there doesn't seem like much room to continue expanding on the inevitable war between man & machine. If that's your thinking, you've forgotten about the wonders a little time travel can do for a blockbuster franchise. You're also forgetting this is 2015, and the mantra of "bigger is always better" is in full swing. It's a shame that bigger usually means dumber, too. Terminator Genisys is both, briskly limping along the rails its idiotic script has laid down for it. Not even Arnold, welcome return as he is, can justify this film's presence.
"We're not a pit crew at Daytona, this can't be fixed in seconds!" Universal has debuted a full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the innovator Steve Jobs. This doesn't exactly make him look like the nicest guy in the world, as the trailer seems to show quite a few extra moments through his long career, including very early on at Apple and an amusing tech failure with the original OS just before a conference. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Sarah Snook, Katherine Waterston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vanessa Ross, John Ortiz and Adam Shapiro. I think this looks fantastic, really really excited to see it. Looks even better than I could have hoped. Enjoy!
They blew it all up!! The first teaser trailer has debuted for London Has Fallen, the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler as Mike Banning and Aaron Eckhardt as the President. Both of them are back again, along with Morgan Freeman, in London Has Fallen which does indeed bring the action to London. Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Angela Bassett, Jackie Earle Haley and Robert Forster also star, but not everyone is in this footage yet. This teaser sets up the "London Has Fallen" showdown, putting Butler & Eckhardt at the center of "a plot to assassinate all the world leaders" in London. I'm sure it's going to be full of ridiculous action and crazy twists, so if you're excited for this you know what to expect.
"Every punch I've ever thrown has been on my own." Warner Bros has debuted the first must see trailer for Ryan Coogler's Creed, a follow-up to the Rocky movies starring Sylvester Stallone as Rocky. He appears in the film since he fought Apollo Creed throughout so many of the original films. Creed's son decides to go all the way in boxing, and asks for Rocky to train him. Michael B. Jordan stars in a once-in-a-lifetime performance as Adonis Creed, also including Sly Stallone, Graham McTavish, Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad. I think this looks phenomenal, one of my most anticipated movies coming up this fall. I'm a huge fan of Ryan Coogler and it looks like he's really making an unforgettable film. Take a look below!
The most wanted man in the world. Open Road has debuted a teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden movie, his retelling of the Edward Snowden story. Stone has been passionately and intensely working on this film for years ever since his Martin Luther King, Jr. project fell apart. As much as I'd love to say this is an exciting reveal, the teaser contains no footage - only some music and text and eventually an upside down American flag. Big deal. Aren't we all familiar with this already? Give us something, give us some footage, a single shot of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden would do. Oh well, we'll keep waiting for some footage.
"Anytime you get to talk about Chris Farley is a good day." BuzzFeed has debuted the first official trailer for the documentary I Am Chris Farley, a profile about the life of the beloved comedian who died in 1997. It's probably that many of you grew up watching Chris Farley, whether it was on "Saturday Night Live" or in Tommy Boy, Black Sheep or Beverly Hills Ninja. He died almost 20 years ago, if you can believe it was that long ago, and they've finally made a documentary about him and it's out this summer. I Am Chris Farley features all his friends and colleagues, from Adam Sandler to Lorne Micheals, David Spade, Molly Shannon, Christina Applegate, and Bob Saget. I'm looking forward to catching this doc sometime, looks pretty good.
"Re-open the case!" STX Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for Secret in Their Eyes, a dramatic thriller about a tight-knit team of FBI investigators torn apart when they discover one of their own has been murdered. This film is sort of technically a remake or redo of the 2009 film The Secret in Their Eyes, which won the Best Foreign Language Oscar. It's actually a fantastic film that I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it yet, and thankfully this looks a bit different so it's not a repeat all over again. In this version, Chiwetel Ejiofor stars with Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Dean Norris and Michael Kelly. The performances look strong enough to make me put aside the other film, but I hope this is good.
Phew! Finally, I don't have to write "another day, another remake" because this definitely ain't happening anytime soon. In an interview with UK newspaper The Telegraph, director Robert Zemeckis revealed his rather frank thoughts on remaking his beloved sci-fi movie Back to the Future. "Oh, God no… That can't happen until both Bob and I are dead," Zemeckis said, referring to his co-writer Bob Gale. With Hollywood turning to franchises and old brands more and more these days, it's a legitimate topic for discussion, and I'm glad someone asked him about this. Zemeckis is currently finishing The Walk (which looks great), and has previously written off the possibility of BTTF 4. So long as he stays true to his word, it will all be okay.
It's not "who you gonna call?" this time, now it's "what you gunna wear?!" Director Paul Feig has debuted the first photo via Twitter of the Ghostbusters uniforms (but no proton packs?) for the new Ghostbusters movie, starring an all-female team of 'busters. Shooting is now underway. You can see the various nametags on the uniforms for each of the actresses starring in this: Melissa McCarthy as Abby Bergman, Kristen Wiig as Erin Gabler, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan. These new outfits certainly have an old, gritty vibe to them, and they still are jumpsuits, so that's good news at least. Beyond that, I'm waiting to see any actual footage though I've got a strangely good feeling about this movie.
