Jason Bateman Says Netflix Was ‘Disingenuous’ About ‘Arrested Development’ Season 4

by Kevin Fitzpatrick August 17, 2015 @ 1:32 PM
The future of Arrested Development’s Netflix tenure remains in question after a number of conflicting reports, though series lead Jason Bateman has an idea as to why the first Netflix revival proved so notably “underwhelming.” Could a change in promotion from Arrested Development “Season 5” better sell the inevitable return?

‘The Gift’ Review: Presenting A Surprising Directorial Debut From Joel Edgerton

There are a fair number of scares in The Gift, but the most shocking part of the film isn’t the sudden appearance of a mysterious package or a creepy guy popping out of the shadows; it’s the way the film’s resident creepy guy is slowly revealed as a man with a broken heart and genuine feelings. When he’s introduced, Gordo (Joel Edgerton) gives off an unsettling vibe. His conversations are awkward and stilted; his clothes make him look like a time traveler from the early ’90s. But the more time The Gift spends with him the less threatening he appears — or at least the more threatening his supposed victims become.

The ‘Zootopia’ Trailer is Here to Teach Your Kids What ‘Anthropomorphic’ Means

by Jacob Hall June 11, 2015 @ 12:34 PM
It’s common for early teaser trailers to act as announcements, introducing a the existence of a film before proper previews show up to talk about little things like plot and character. It’s less common for a trailer to give its viewers — ostensibly, in this case, children — the definition of “anthropomorphic” so they can easily digest a high concept. Welcome to the internet, Zootopia trailer. You are certainly one of the more unique teasers we’ve seen in a little while.

by Britt Hayes June 9, 2015 @ 7:15 PM
Similar to Pixar’s little break last year, Disney Animation is taking a break from releasing a film this year (more time for you to get “Let It Go” out of your head), but the studio will return next year with Zootopia. Disney has released the first look at their upcoming film, which doesn’t hit theaters until next spring.

‘The Gift’ Trailer: Joel Edgerton’s Directorial Debut Is Very ‘Single White Male’

by Britt Hayes April 1, 2015 @ 5:39 PM
Like many actors before him, Joel Edgerton is adding “director” to his resume. First up: The Gift, a psychological thriller produced by horror heavyweights Blumhouse Productions, starring Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall as a nice, normal couple living a nice life in their nice new house (so nice!), until an old high school classmate gets a little too attached.

Review: ‘Horrible Bosses 2’ Was a Horrible Idea

Warner Bros.
Some ideas just aren’t cut out for sequels. ‘The Hangover’ was ingenious and hilarious—for one movie. But another ‘Hangover’? With the same guys? That doesn’t make a ton of sense. ‘The Blue Lagoon’ was striking and exotic. But a ‘Return to the Blue Lagoon’? More castaways? On the exact same deserted island? Sorry, no thanks. To the list of concepts that could not support a sequel but got one anyway, we can now add ‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ a flimsy retread of the 2011 comedy that had barely enough material to fill one film.

'Horrible Bosses 2' Clip: Kevin Spacey Is Back and He's Still Horrible

by Britt Hayes November 5, 2014 @ 5:53 PM
If you thought we wouldn't get to take pleasure in seeing Kevin Spacey's hilarious jerk of a boss steal at least one scene in 'Horrible Bosses 2,' think again. Universal has released the first official clip from the upcoming sequel, featuring Spacey's Dave Harken, in prison, delivering a lovely verbal smackdown to his former would-be killers.

'Horrible Bosses 2' Trailer: Business Is Hard, Kidnapping Is Harder

by Britt Hayes September 30, 2014 @ 7:53 PM
A new, full trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2' has arrived, and in it we see just what it is that has driven our favorite bad co-workers/besties to such horrible lengths this time around: turns out, being an entrepreneur isn't as easy as you might think, and neither is kidnapping ... or, uh, "kidnaping." They're not so great at spelling, either.

'Horrible Bosses 2' Trailer: This Is the Most Absurd Kidnapping Attempt Ever

by Britt Hayes September 4, 2014 @ 7:14 PM
The second full trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2' is here, and it features some seriously amateur kidnapping maneuvers, as the guys try to put together a foolproof plan to help Chris Pine's character get revenge on his dear old dad, played by Christoph Waltz. If these guys can't even spell "kidnapping" correctly, we don't see this thing turning out very well.
