Warner Bros. has announced release dates for two of their upcoming adaptations / reboots, adding both films — along with an untitled mystery project — to their 2017 slate. First up is CHiPs, Dax Shepard’s new action-comedy based on the classic ’80s TV series, starring Shepard and Michael Peña in the leading roles. Next is It, the long-developing and slightly-delayed adaptation of Stephen King’s beloved horror novel, which became the subject of some minor controversy following director Cary Fukunaga’s departure.

And you thought you wouldn’t see another Ant-Man trailer until Ant-Man and the Wasp, but Marvel has released a new trailer for their big-little hero to tease the upcoming Blu-ray release. One of the funnier parts of the film was Michael Pena’s character explaining the tips he received from other people, going off on long-winded tangents about how he heard what he knows — the new trailer uses that concept to have Pena explain the special features we can expect to see when Ant-Man arrives on Blu-ray in December.

In a move that’s not entirely surprising but should add a little extra appeal to the upcoming CHiPs movie, Kristen Bell has joined the cast of the film, which is being directed by her real-life husband Dax Shepard. Shepard also co-stars in the film with Michael Pena, with the two playing the lead roles of Officer John Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello.

‘CHiPs’ Big Screen Reboot Is Aiming for an R-Rating and ‘Lethal Weapon’ Tone

When the big screen version of CHiPs was first announced, our assumption was that the film would be largely comedic, with Warner Bros. likely capitalizing on the success of the Jump Street franchise. It would seem that we were slightly wrong. Michael Pena, who plays Frank “Ponch” Poncherello in the upcoming film, compares the project to Lethal Weapon and says it will be rated R. Cue head scratch.

‘The Martian’ Reveals New Video and Two More Images, Trailer Reportedly Arrives Very Soon

We sure have been seeing a whole lot of images from The Martian lately — Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi film starring Matt Damon has been dropping images left and right, and we still haven’t even seen a trailer yet. The latest stills from the movie feature Matt Damon (of course) and Jeff Daniels, while a new video introduces us to the crew of the Ares 3, giving us our first look at footage from the film.

‘The Vatican Tapes’ Trailer: Michael Pena Does the Exorcism Horror Thing

EDIT

If you thought movies like The Devil Inside and Deliver Us From Evil had effectively ended the renewed trend of exorcism horror flicks, think again. It’s Michael Peña’s turn to get in on the demonic horror genre in the trailer for The Vatican Tapes, in which the actor plays what Djimon Hounsou (looking pretty sharp in that priest garb) describes as a “warrior for God.” It basically looks like The Devil Inside meets Deliver Us From Evil, but I get the feeling it’s not combining the best of both films.

With all the action going on at TIFF, including praise for 'Foxcatcher' and 'The Equalizer,' let us not forget entirely about 'Fury.' While Brad Pitt's WWII drama isn't making the rounds at the international film festival, a new international 'Fury' trailer has rolled out to keep the film on our radars.

Looks like Warner Bros. is hoping they can replicate the success Columbia had with '21 Jump Street' with a small-to-big screen reboot of their own: the studio has hired Dax Shepard to write, direct, and star in a film version of the classic cop series 'CHiPS,' and he's bringing Michael Pena along for the ride.
