Based on the Stephen King novel from 2006, Cell went into production a couple of years ago, but languished in post-production for so long that it’s understandable if you forgot that it exists. The first trailer has arrived to assure you that Cell is indeed hitting theaters soon — well, select theaters, anyway. And judging by this trailer, you can see why this one isn’t getting a wider release.

We’ve been blessed with not just one, but two new Spike Lee films this year, both retellings of established stories, and both very different kinds of movies. Following the release of Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (based on the cult classic Ganja and Hess) earlier this year, Lee returns with Chi-Raq — based on the ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, the film also happens to be Amazon’s first original production, and we have two new trailers for the ambitious project.

Breaking Bad successfully turned Mr. Chips into Scarface, but did you know that AMC wanted Matthew Broderick or John Cusack for the role of Walter White? Or that Jesse was supposed to die in Season 1? These are just some of the crystal blue persuasions from the thirteenth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which cooks up a new batch for AMC’s Breaking Bad!

I know Brian Wilson, the genius behind the great pop group the Beach Boys, had a tough decade or two after the collapse of his band. But to transform from Paul Dano to John Cusack in the span of a couple years? Those are...

April Fools’ Day is an occasion marked by silliness. Many websites choose to celebrate by tricking their readers with goofy pranks. But for every one of these hoaxes that’s funny, there are ten more that are terrible (plus our budget would not allow us to turn the site into ScreenFlush, the #1 place on the Internet dedicated to movie toilets, for a single day). So instead, let’s honor some humor professionals; the men and women who’ve made the best comedies of the last 25 years.

The first trailer for Love and Mercy has arrived, in which Paul Dano and John Cusack take on the role of music legend and Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson. Love and Mercy generated some positive word of mouth on the festival circuit last year, and since then, we’ve been anticipating the release of this biopic, which promises great performances from both Dano and Cusack in this intimate story about Wilson’s triumphs and struggles.

‘Dragon Blade’ Trailer: John Cusack Goes Old School Epic With Jackie Chan

Do you buy John Cusack as a Roman soldier who teams up with Jackie Chan in an epic battle film that takes place in the year 48 BC? Yeah, neither do we, but that’s what the first trailer for ‘Dragon Blade’ is selling. Cusack has certainly been making some Choices with a capital C in recent years, and his latest film continues the modern tradition of making us scratch our heads at whatever the hell John Cusack is getting up to.

Now more than ever we've seen TV looking to classic films of the '80s and '90s for the next great small screen series idea, whether by reboot or sequel, but a proposed 'Say Anything' TV sequel may have trouble getting its boombox up in the air. NBC has begun development of a potential followup to the classic 1989 Cameron Crowe film, though Crowe is outspokenly none-too-pleased about it.

‘Love & Mercy’ – which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival – isn’t the first movie to try to explore the life of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. There was the 1990 television movie ‘Summer Dreams: The Story of the Beach Boys,’ which told the story from the late Dennis Wilson’s perspective. Then there was the more expensive-looking, but still made for television ‘The Beach Boys: An American Family’ that aired in 2000. So, yes, we’ve seen Brian Wilson’s mental health dramatized before.
