Tim Burton's live action Dumbo trailer takes flight

Given Tim Burton's propensity for strangely dark films (Frankenweenie, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd, etc.), he's seemed an odd pick to direct children's movies--and yet was given...

Review: Ocean's 8

It’s been eleven years since we had an Ocean’s franchise film. But consider this, we went 41 years before 2001’s Ocean’s 11 remade the original Rat Pack film. Maybe we should have waited another 30?

Ralph Breaks the Internet trailer repairs expectations

It's not even been three months since Ready Player One whelmed at the boxed office and already someone has come along and shown how that should have been done. Love it or hate it, the crux of RPO, outside of nostalgia, was the source mater...

Ant-Man and the Wasp's second trailer is one big dick joke

Ant-Man's been in the news a lot over the past few days, but it has nothing to do with his forthcoming sequel release on July 6, just over two months away. Instead, it's owing to his conspicuous absence in Avengers: Infinity War; you may h...

Stephen King's The Stand coming to CBS as 10-part TV series

Forecast calls for 100% chance of only one more Sharknado

April Fools' ... has absolutely nothing to do with this utterly serious news: the forthcoming Sharknado 6 will close out the landmark series. Sad news for anyone aiming to get their bad movies on TV.  For me, trying to rank the fi...

Review: Game Over, Man!

Die Hard doesn’t really need any sequels, but because Bruce Willis is still working, we’ll probably get at least one more anyway, in between Death Wish and Sixth Sense revivals. But, if the creators and stars of Workaholics were...

Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...

Michael Fassbender to star in Hollywood Kung Fury sequel

Kung Fury, for the uninitiated, is a 2015 crowd-funded short film that pays homage to '80s cop and martial arts movies. It's solid gold shit, the best of bad movies, but coming in at only 31 minutes in length, it's never been able to call i...
