A new full trailer for writer-director Sean Anders’ R-rated comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2 is now online.  This cut sees stars Jason BatemanCharlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis finding their groove as criminals who opt to take part in the more lucrative business of kidnapping and ransom rather than murderous revenge.  The change in plot points this time around seems like it frees up the trio to flex their comedy muscles even more than in the original film.  While Horrible Bosses 2 could easily suffer from the usual sequel pitfalls, it’s worth the price of admission just to have these three on screen together.  Be sure to check out the previously released trailer for even more hilarity.

Also starring Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Chris Pine, and Kevin SpaceyHorrible Bosses 2 opens November 26th.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer and take a look at the new poster.

It’s been well over two years since we talked about director Todd Phillips’ project Arms and the Dudes, but with today’s major casting news, it’s likely we’ll be talking about it a lot more in the coming months.  Shia LaBeouf and Jesse Eisenberg are reported as being in talks to star in the film, which is based on Guy Lawson’s Rolling Stone article about a pair of stoners who land a $300 million military contract to supply arms to America’s allies in Afghanistan.  If that wasn’t weird enough, the story takes another turn when Pentagon turns on the dudes.  Hit the jump for more.

New THE FLASH Trailer Tugs at the Heartstrings and Reveals a Glimpse of a Major Antagonist

by     Posted 19 days ago

The recently released trailer for The CW’s new superhero series The Flash received some mixed reactions (on this particular site anyway).  Today’s new cut will likely have the same result since it leans heavily on the oftentimes melodramatic emotional hook that’s at the heart of beloved and belittled CW shows alike.  Much like its sister series Arrow, which is at its best when striking a balance between intense action and soap opera schmaltz, The Flash doesn’t appear to be shy about giving the network’s dedicated fandom its just deserts.  You can bet that we’ll have weekly recaps for both shows once they return to the small screen this fall.

Hit the jump to check out The Flash trailer and to play “Spot the Villain.”  The show stars Grant GustinDanielle PanabakerCarlos ValdesJesse L. MartinCandice PattonTom CavanaghRick Cosnett, and John Wesley Shipp with Robbie AmellWentworth Miller, and Clancy Brown slated as guest stars.  The Flash premieres on The CW on October 7th at 8/7c.

Terry Gilliam wants to offend you, he wants to shock you, and above all, he wants to make you think. The Monty Python funnyman and notoriously Hollywood-hostile director aims to achieve all three of those things with his newest film, The Zero Theorem.  In addition to talking up the sci-fi fantasy movie while attending Atlanta’s DragonCon, Gilliam shared a personal story about his experience working with the late Robin Williams, talked about landing Christoph Waltz in the lead of his latest film, and even commented on the long-running success of the British comedy troupe.

The Zero Theorem, which stars Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation, is now available on VOD and will enjoy a limited theatrical release on September 19th.  Melanie ThierryTilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star.  Hit the jump for our DragonCon interview with Terry Gilliam.

INTRUDERS Review: Secret Societies, Ghost Machines, and Unstoppable Assassins Abound in BBC America’s Body-Snatching Series

by     Posted 31 days ago

intruders-review

“In the beginning, there was death.”  This is the mantra of BBC America’s new series Intruders, and the show makes good on that promise from the outset.  The body-snatching drama based on British novelist Michael Marshall Smith’s work spans multiple genres, from the ever-popular police procedural, to the vogue of supernatural deaths and rebirths, with elements of classic crowd-pleasers like secret societies, conspiracies, and yes, even creepy children.  While Intruders is sure to draw comparisons to The X-Files (which makes sense considering that the hit show’s producer Glen Morgan is both writer and executive producer of the new series), it’s much less episodic in nature and skews more toward the cult series Twin Peaks than anything else, thanks in part to its Pacific Northwest setting and layered mystery spiraling around its central plot.  

Hit the jump for my Intruders review, and for why you should welcome this show into your home when it debuts on BBC America tonight at 10pm ET.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Trailer – Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron Bring the Madness, Plus a More Detailed Plot Synopsis and Character Description

by     Posted 58 days ago

mad-max-fury-road-trailer

Warner Bros. has released the first Mad Max: Fury Road trailer for director George Miller’s highly anticipated fourth installment in the Mad Max franchise.  The post-apocalyptic actioner sees Tom Hardy filling the role of Max, a man seeking peace following the loss of his wife and child, while Charlize Theron plays Furiosa, a woman who aims to survive by trekking across the desert back to her homeland.  You’ll have to watch this trailer a few times, not to glean any plot details but just to catch bits and pieces of the insanity on display.  It’s certainly in line with the madness of the previous films, though it remains to be seen whether or not Hardy can fill Mel Gibson’s spiked boots because he’s incapacitated for the most part of this first look.  Still, there’s lots to be excited for – car crashes, insane leather fetishes, slavers, open-desert high-speed chases, two-headed geckos, etc – especially after such a long delay.

THE FANTASTIC FOUR Skips out on Comic-Con But Offers a Glimpse at The Thing

by     Posted 59 days ago

 

the-fantastic-four-the-thing-image

Apparently Fox decided not to bring any marketing for The Fantastic Four to Comic-Con this weekend, even though the Josh Trank-directed picture is currently shooting in Louisiana and will debut before next year’s convention.  However, a very unofficial image has leaked out into the interwebs that shows what is apparently the film’s new version of The Thing.  Jamie Bell is playing the rocky humanoid hero, aka Ben Grimm, and thankfully it looks like he’ll be doing so through motion capture.  It looks pretty good, but the bar was previously set laughably low by poor Michael Chiklis’ rock suit in the last effort.  Hit the jump to check it out.

Also starring Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch, Kate Mara as Invisible Girl, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, and Toby Kebbell as Dr. Doom, The Fantastic Four is set to open June 19, 2015.  

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE – Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con Presentation Reveals First Look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman

During Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con presentation in the convention center’s famed Hall H today, a crowd-pleasing presentation kicked things off with Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  While we’ve previously seen Henry Cavill in costume as Superman, along with Ben Affleck in costume as Batman, this presentation was the first glimpse of Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman armor.  Needless to say, it looks like the Internet’s knee-jerk reaction to Gadot’s casting was premature; no surprise there.  They also screened some footage that apparently wowed the crowd, which Matt covers in his panel recap.

Also starring Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, and Laurence Fishburne.  Batman vs. Superman opens May 6, 2016.  Hit the jump to check out the new Wonder Woman image.
