Full Trailer for Patrick Hughes' 'Expendables 3' Reloads & Explodes

The Expendables 3 Trailer

"How hard can it be to kill 10 men?" Time for more. More guns, more action, more explosions, more actors, more of everything. Even more women! Another trailer for Patrick Hughes' sequel The Expendables 3, a full-length trailer featuring the entire cast, has debuted. From Stallone to Statham to Li, they've got the original crew of Expendables back, but of course there's also Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer and Randy Couture stuffed in here, too. While I will say this doesn't look as bad as the last one, it doesn't really look that good either, but I'm already disinterested in this franchise despite a cast of everyone awesome. Enjoy.

"This might not be the best idea…" This looks so damn good! How did Marvel pull this off?! We'll all find out in just a few more months, thankfully. Marvel UK has debuted another full-length international trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn's adaptation of the sci-fi comic book superheroes who must save the galaxy. Chris Pratt stars as Star-Lord, and we actually get to see some of his backstory. There's also Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooler & Vin Diesel as Rocket Raccoon & Groot, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey. Plus we finally get to see Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael. Everything about this movie looks like so much fun, and I'm even more excited to see this now.

Albert Brooks

Earlier this year, we got word that comedians Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart would be lending their voices to an Untitled Pets Movie, an animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment, the same company behind Despicable Me. Now the voice cast has expanded with even more great comedic talent. The Wrap reports stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress, "Saturday Night Live" cast member Bobby Moynihan, In a World… lead Lake Bell and "The Office" regular Ellie Kemper will also voice characters in the film that Universal has slated to open on February 12th, 2016. But the real treat is Albert Brooks is in talks as well.

Roll Out with the Autobots: Get a Ride with Optimus Prime on Uber

Optimus Prime

This is awesome! One of my favorite apps/car services, called Uber, has launched a new promotion this month that involves getting a ride in the Optimus Prime truck, to wherever you want. Maybe to smash that bully's house or at least leave some gnarly tire marks on his driveway, and then back home. Pick up some food along the way, fight some Decepticons, hitch another ride on Grimlock the Dinobot. Sounds like a plan. The truck will be in Dallas, Phoenix and Los Angeles on specific days (today, June 16th, it's in Dallas) for a very limited time. The blog even includes a disclaimer about how hard it will be to catch Optimus, but it's worth a shot. As far as we can tell, that semi-truck seen above is the one that will actually pick you up.

Anna Kendrick Lending Voice to DreamWorks Animation's 'Trolls'

Anna Kendrick

After singing her heart out in Pitch Perfect, and returning to a capella with the sequel directed by Elizabeth Banks that is underway right now, Anna Kendrick is getting musical again. However, this time she won't be stepping in front of a camera, because DreamWorks Animation has revealed that the star of Up in the Air, Drinking Buddies and and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World will lend her voice to Trolls, the film based on the hairy dolls of the same name. Kendrick will play Poppy, the relentlessly upbeat princess who is at the center of the film described as an animated musical comedy, already set for release November 4th, 2016.

John Cusack & Adrien Brody Find 'Dragon Blade' with Jackie Chan

Adrien Brody / John Cusack

Action star Jackie Chan is already slated to lead a new film called Skiptrace that feels like a throwback to the 90s with Seann William Scott co-starring and Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin at the helm. Now he's found another odd project, and a pair of somewhat struggling actors have come aboard the film as well. Dragon Blade is a historical epic that is currently in production, heading to Dunhuang and the Gobi Desert for their next location and THR has the news straight from Chan himself at the Shanghai Film Festival that Adrien Brody and John Cusack will also star in the film that is directed by Daniel Lee.

Todd Field & Kathryn Bigelow Plan Competing Bowe Bergdahl Films

Bowe Bergdahl

For the past couple weeks, Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has been the focus of headlines and 24-hour cable news networks after the United States government exchanged five captured, high-ranking Taliban operatives in order to get the captured American prisoner of war back from Taliban captivity. However, controversy has erupted with accusations of Bergdahl deserting his base voluntarily, questioning the war in which he was fighting, not to mention the supposed value of the prisoners who were exchanged in order to get him back. Now the news story has proven to be provocative enough for two feature films. More below!

Teresa Palmer Taking Lead Female Role in Remake of 'Point Break'

Teresa Palmer

After getting caught up with superpowered aliens in I Am Number Four and recovering zombies in Warm Bodies, the lovely Australian actress Teresa Palmer is heading into remake territory. Alcon Entertainment has announced that Palmer is taking the female lead in their remake of the action thriller Point Break starring Edgar Ramirez (who replaced the departed Gerard Butler) in the role of Bodhi, originated by Patrick Swayze, and Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, the role played by Keanu Reeves. It's not clear how pivotal of a role Palmer will have, but if it follows suit of the original, she won't have a large amount of screentime.

'The People vs. George Lucas: Episode II' Documentary on the Way

he People vs. George Lucas: Episode II

If you're a hardcore Star Wars fan, there's a good chance you have already discovered the indie documentary The People vs. George Lucas from 2010. The film from director Alexandre O. Philippe looked at the disenchantment that fans of Star Wars and Indiana Jones came to feel following the mostly disappointing prequels to the classic original trilogy. Speaking with various fans and celebrities, the film talks about the anticipation leading up to The Phantom Menace, and the disappointing that eventually followed. And with Star Wars: Episode VII in production, that means it's time for the documentary sequel.

Disaster Strikes in Disney's 'Planes: Fire & Rescue' Extended Trailer

Planes: Fire & Rescue

That headline works both as a descriptor of the plot and the quality of the film that will come from Disney's animated spin-off sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue. Despite the high quality of animation here, we're still not sold that this film is anything but an hour and a half commercial for toys. Even Transformers: Age of Extinction is at least going for some kind of wow factor when it comes to the action, while this family friendly sequel just feels like it's on auto-pilot (no pun intended). Plus Dane Cook's voice work as the lead plane Dusty seems half-hearted, as if he knows that he's part of Disney's junior varsity team. Watch below!

Johnson & Wayans Jr. in Another Red Band 'Let's Be Cops' Trailer

Let's Be Cops

The first red band trailer for the self-explanatory comedy Let's Be Cops starring Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. was short on big laughs, but a new red band trailer dives a little deeper into what seems to be a shallow concept. As these two friends keep pretending to be cops, they get deeper into trouble. The new trailer shows off more of the dangerous activities they get involved with when they're mistaken for real cops at first, including Rob Riggle. But when the bad guys find out that they have forged badge numbers, it's assumed they might be working undercover for the FBI or the ATF. We're still not sold on the premise sustaining itself, but Wayans and Johnson certainly make it seem more appealing. Watch below!

Sony Pictures Lands 'Captain Nemo' Script from 'Smallville' Creators

Captain Nemo

Lately we've seen the work of Jules Verne brought to the big screen in subpart adventures like Journey to the Center of the Earth and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. There was hope that we might get a spectacular adaptation of Verne's classic tale 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with David Fincher and Brad Pitt, but Disney was never able to get the project going. Now THR reports one of the characters from the latter Verne title may still end up in theaters as Sony Pictures (Columbia Pictures) has landed a spec script from "Smallville" creators Alfred Gough & Miles Millar with a new take on Captain Nemo. Read on!
