It’s all happening. Yes, really. Once thought to be too ambitious and sprawling for a big screen adaptation, The Dark Tower is finally hitting theaters next February, with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in the dueling roles of the heroic Gunslinger and the villainous Man in Black. New photos of the actors have debuted, along with more details on the characters they play in the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s epic book series — which is going to be making some pretty big changes on its journey from page to screen.

This summer hasn’t been a great one for movies (we even have actual data to back that up), and even if the rest of this month turns out to be as disappointing as June, we still have August to look forward to — and Kubo and the Two Strings, Laika’s latest stop-motion animation adventure, which looks like the studio’s most epic and visually stunning project yet. Even though the previous trailer was said to be the last we’d see before the film’s release, Laika has delivered one more sneak peek to tide you over until August.

Remember those days in high school where your regular history teacher would call in sick and some anonymous substitute would just put on a VHS of Glory or Gettysburg and call it a day? It turns out that practice is still alive and well at universities across the country, with one small difference: instead of some random recent college graduate as a substitute teacher, these students will be visited by Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey.

‘Free State of Jones’ Review: The ‘All Lives Matter’ Civil War Movie You Didn’t Ask For

Watching ‘Free State of Jones’ transported me back in time, but not back to the Civil War era. The 139 minute war drama took me back to high school on the days when my U.S. History teacher would play a historical movie, like 1986's Glory, in place of a lesson plan. But if any teacher is looking to add a movie to their syllabus, it shouldn’t be Gary Ross’ ‘Free State of Jones.’

by Britt Hayes April 30, 2016 @ 2:47 PM
It might be okay if Laika just continues to release trailers for Kubo and the Two Strings. The studio’s latest stop-motion adventure looks to be their most beautiful, immersive and epic story yet, and it’s hard to complain about so many trailers when each one is so darn pretty. Note to Laika: Either put this movie in theaters, like, tomorrow, or please continue to release a new trailer for it every day until August.
