Look I’m just going to say it: Someone in the Secret Service should be fired. I know the whole point of the Has Fallen series is how Gerard Butler’s Secret Service Agent Mike Banning is a hero who protects Aaron Eckhart’s President from terrorists around the globe. But shouldn’t the Secret Service protect the President so he doesn’t get into these kinds of scraps? Mistakes happen, and I’m willing to allow this sort of thing to happen once. But twice? At a certain point we have to take a long hard look at our security apparatus.

EDIT

The first trailer for the new Steve Jobs biopic (titled Steve Jobs) didn’t show much from the film, specifically Michael Fassbender’s performance as that late Apple head. Today, a new trailer has been released that gives us a much better look into the film (and the life of Steve Jobs) and that’s both a great thing, and a not-so-great thing.

‘Kong: Skull Island’ Loses Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons

EDIT

Universal is on quite a hot streak lately, with four of the top ten movies of 2015 so far including Jurassic World (the biggest movie of the summer), Furious 7, and Pitch Perfect 2. The studio doesn’t have a ton of big-ticket franchises, and they’re really the only major studio that’s not in the superhero game, but the brands they do have, people love. People love Jurassic Park, and the Fast & Furious movies, and those adorable little Minions, whose movie comes out in a couple weeks. People also love King Kong, which is why Universal’s rebooting that franchise as Kong: Skull Island, a new take on the old monster movie about the giant, soulful ape with a thing for blondes.

If you didn’t get your fill of board game movies with either Battleship or Ouija, don’t worry, the trend isn’t going anywhere. After years in development, Lionsgate is moving forward with a Monopoly movie with a script by Oscar-nominated writer Andrew Niccol.

‘Mother’s Day’ Is the Next Holiday Garry Marshall Will Make a Movie About

What is the worst franchise in Hollywood? Transformers? Alvin and the Chipmunks? Underworld? They’re all pretty crummy, but they pale before the abject awfulness of the unnamed franchise Garry Marshall’s been working on for the last couple years, where he takes a holiday everyone loves, cast a bunch of movie stars everyone loves, and puts them in a terrible, terrible movie that everyone hates (but which make a ton of money). First came Valentine’s Day featuring Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, and Jamie Foxx, and it was bad. Then there was New Year’s Day, with Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, and Robert freaking De Niro and it was, somehow, much, much worse. Now Marshall’s reign of calendarian terror will continue with Mother’s Day.

Sad though we'll be to see Cullen Bohannon finally bring Hell on Wheels to a hard stop (admittedly in 2016, with AMC already lining up its next western), the first look at Season 5 seems the most exciting and exotic yet. Bullets fly, trains collide, and there's even a crazy dude in a mask in our first look at Hell on Wheels fifth' and final season!

HBO had enough star power on its hands in adapting Bryan Cranston’s Tony-winning Lyndon B. Johnson show All The Way with Stephen Spielberg’s help, and now a Falcon has heeded the call. Civil War star Anthony Mackie will play the role of Martin Luther King Jr. himself, as All The Way gets ready to go before cameras this September.

It’s been a good while since we’ve checked in with Frank Underwood and his increasingly fragile House of Cards, but with Season 4 confirmed for 2016, our erstwhile President has officially begun staffing up. Scream icon Neve Campbell will take a stab at House of Cards Season 4 in a regular new role, but who might need to brush up on their favorite scary movie?

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).
