If there’s one thing I like, it’s big, bold, over-the-top action films. And if there’s two things I like, it’s a big, bold over-the-top action film starring a really charismatic and self-deprecating hero. So, basically, this is the best day ever. Because, per Variety, Chad Stahelski and David Leitch—the directors of the big, bold, over-the-top 2014 action film ‘John Wick’—are in “early talks” with Universal Pictures to make ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ with Chris Pratt—a really charismatic and self-deprecating hero.

‘Jurassic World’ Offers Up the First Official Look at Indominus Rex

EDIT
by Mike Sampson a day ago
‘Jurassic World’ can’t just be all raptors and T-rexs. As much as we love those guys, we’ve seen them before in the three previous ‘Jurassic Park’ movies. We need a new dino villain. Enter: Indominus Rex. Previously referred to as “Diabolus Rex”, this new dinosaur is rumored to be a hybrid creation with the sole design to increase the flagging attendance at the Jurassic World theme park. This, as you might expect, goes horribly wrong. Up until now, all we know about Indominus is what was hinted at in the first teaser, and that he’s one bad mother. But, now, thanks to the official ‘Jurassic World’ web site, we know a little bit more about this monster.

'Black or White' is a movie Costner admits no one in Hollywood wanted to make. So, he made it his damn self. With his own money. $9 million of his own money. If it seems like the kind of thing that a lot of people would advise against, you're right. We sat down with the actor to talk about this, and why he felt 'Black or White' was so important to invest so much of his own money in.

‘Insurgent’ is getting a Super Bowl trailer, but if you're watching the Super Bowl this year, you might miss it. Wait, what? Looking to save a few bucks on commercial time (NBC was charging $4.5 million for a 30-second spot), Lionsgate/Summit will instead run this new ‘Insurgent’ trailer during the Super Bowl pre-game show. And, ok, that makes sense! Only problem is that the Super Bowl pre-game show is 6 hours long. So, to save you the Herculean effort of sitting through that entire production, we have the ‘Insurgent’ Super Bowl trailer for you right now!

‘Terminator Genisys’ Super Bowl Trailer: He's Back. Again.

EDIT
by Mike Sampson a day ago
One of our biggest issues with the first ‘Terminator Genisys’ trailer was that it was a little confusing. Not just the time travel, but the whole premise of the movie; is this a remake or a reboot or a sequel or some combination of all the above? This new ‘Terminator’ Super Bowl trailer doesn't attempt to address all those concerns in its allotted 30 seconds (probably because that would be impossible), but instead focuses on the action, which is something we can get behind.

In a few months, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ will be in theaters and, thanks to the deep pockets of Disney’s marketing department, Marvel’s premiere superhero team will literally be everywhere you look. However, their strongest presence will be in the toy aisles, with new LEGO sets and action figures scheduled to arrive just in time to tease the movie, delight your kids, and drain your wallet. To add insult to injury, the coolest most wallet-draining toy of them all isn’t even tied into the new movie. It’s from the first film.

The Muppets Visit the Set of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ in Fantastic Behind-the-Scenes Photos

Before he was a CGI creation, Jedi master Yoda was a puppet. Before green screens became the norm, the Dagobah set for ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ was built elevated off the ground to accommodate Yoda’s puppeteers. And before he brought Yoda to life, puppeteer and voice actor Frank Oz was best known as the man behind Miss Piggy. In a weird way, that makes the most wizened character in the ‘Star Wars’ universe a distant relative of the extended Muppet family.

‘Project Almanac’ Review: Found Footage Goes Back to the Future

Woe be unto humanity if teenagers discover time travel. That’s the main takeaway from the entertaining new found-footage thriller ‘Project Almanac,’ in which a quintet of adolescents find a time machine, and do exactly what a bunch of adolescents would do if they found a time machine: Party, prank, and screw around with no thought to the consequences of their actions. These kids know and cite ‘Looper’ and ‘The Terminator,’ but the movie they should have paid attention to was ‘The Butterfly Effect,’ because they seem caught off-guard when their innocent misadventures in the timestream begin to ripple out in dangerous ways.
