Britt Hayes Biography
Previously reported with the title of 13 Hours or 13 Hours in Benghazi, Michael Bay’s upcoming military drama now has an official — and much more wordy — title. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, or you can just keep calling it Bayghazi for short. The film also has an official release date so you can begin counting the days until you get to see a new Michael Bay movie that doesn’t involve Transformers (or so we think).
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Creed, the latest installment in the Rocky franchise, which sees Michael B. Jordan taking the leading role and getting into the ring. Sylvester Stallone reprises his role as Rocky Balboa (of course), this time using his years of experience to help guide the young boxer.
Time travel is confusing, what with changing the future and creating diverging/alternate timelines and paradoxes, etc. It’s a lot to take in, even more so in a franchise like the Terminator films. The very first trailer for Terminator Genisys indicated that the fifth installment in the franchise would be the most confusing one yet — just when you thought you had started to figure out the other four, here comes another one to screw it all up. Thankfully, someone made a handy interactive Terminator timeline to help you keep it all straight.
Although we were previously promised a film that would be “mature but playful,” the new details about the Power Rangers reboot make this film sound downright silly. It may be a reboot, but it definitely still features heroes, villains and specifics that you’re familiar with from the series. Basically, that fun Hollywood cliche applies: it’s different, but the same.
We’ve got two new Ant-Man bits to share today. First is the above clip, which features Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang using his super-shrinking power for the first time — in a bathtub, of all places. The second piece of news pertains to the possibility of a sequel, which director Peyton Reed says he’s open to directing.
Secret in Their Eyes is based on the acclaimed, Oscar-winning Argentinian film The Secret in Their Eyes (differentiated by the titular “The”), and the new English remake looks like it may very well be gunning for an Oscar, too. Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor star in the upcoming dramatic thriller, which centers on a brutal murder and the pursuit of justice that follows.
Who doesn’t love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? The guy is the embodiment of charisma with his dashing smile, heroic good looks and his excellent comedic timing. From kicking bad guy butt in action films to hosting what was probably the best episode of SNL this past season, Johnson is always captivating to watch. As it turns out, not only are we lowly, average humans big fans of The Rock, but so is Steven Spielberg.
Chris Farley is a loss that still hurts to this day — the larger-than-life actor was a comedic force, a man who could make anyone and everyone laugh with his joyful shenanigans. The SNL cast member was a legend before his untimely death, and that passing only cemented his status as an icon. Friends and family look back on Farley’s impact, and his life and death in the trailer for I Am Chris Farley.
Ghostbusters is currently filming in Boston, but aside from the occasional paparazzi photo, we haven’t seen anything official from the upcoming reboot. That all changed today as director Paul Feig tweeted out a photo of the new costumes that will be worn by the leading ladies, and they look pretty great.
A few months ago we heard that the new Star Trek sequel is called Star Trek Beyond, but those rumors remained unconfirmed by Paramount. Director Justin Lin has now officially confirmed the title of the third Trek film while also revealing the first photo from the set of the sequel.
