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.

NBC has remained curiously quiet on ‘SNL’’s three-hour 40th Anniversary special on February 15, and while cameos galore are expected, our first major homecoming may have arrived. Following a 31-year absence, Eddie Murphy will reportedly return to ‘SNL’ to ring in the NBC sketch comedy legend’s 40th anniversary.
‘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.
It was inevitable. After less than a year on the air, the Jimmy Fallon-starring 'The Tonight Show' has finally found something to supercut: its own weirdly engaging 'Ew!' talk show. Fallon's take on a teen girl talk show (like all teen girl talk shows, it takes place in a basement and doesn't appear to be broadcast to anyone) explores everything that is particularly gross -- er, "ew" -- to the teens these days. What's gross? Everything. Ew!
'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.
The prospect of a ‘Limitless’ TV series to follow Bradley Cooper’s 2011 “10% of your brain” thriller has been floating around for a few years now, but CBS may be the one to finally make it happen. The ‘Limitless’ follow-up has officially been given a pilot order, along with new details on how the series would tie in with the original film.
‘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!
So that clears that up: You absolutely can drench Mark Wahlberg in semen in a trailer approved for all audiences. And you can also throw a Cookie Crisp into a man’s butt crack. Thanks for maintaining your consistently high standards, MPAA!
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.
