The true crime serial killer movie is about as played out as any genre in movie history, but nothing seems to be stopping 'em. The latest "ripped from the headlines" movie is 'The Frozen Ground,' which casts everyone's favorite lunatic Nicolas Cage as an Alaskan state trooper hunting down a serial killer played by John Cusack. Vanessa Hudgens is also there, but who cares about Vanessa Hudgens when you have a Cage and a Cusack? Anyway, the first trailer for the film has arrived.
The 'Expendables' franchise is built entirely on the idea that watching a whole bunch of movie stars (from former legends to C-listers) kill a whole bunch of people will make for a good time at the movies. Franchise star and chief creative voice Sylvester Stallone has promised that 'The Expendables 3' will up the ante in every way and the news that Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage and Milla Jovovich are in talks to join the cast has us believing him.
Much like the characters within the film, my attitude toward 'The Croods' evolved.
The first 25 minutes or so are awful. The uninteresting, darn-near-ugly character designs, dumb jokes and frenetic, boisterous action in lieu of ingenuity or thrills in 'The Croods'' first act is a chore. I was stunned to check my watch and realize how much left I had in the movie. “Man,” I thought to myself, “it's amazing how wretched some of these kids' films can be compared to something like 'Rango.'”
Then the bottom fell out (in a surprisingly literal way) and 'The Croods' transformed. “Man,” I thought to myself, “this is the weirdest, most adventuresome and gorgeous kids' film I've seen since 'Rango.'”
Can cavemen be adorable? Dreamworks Animation's 'The Croods' seems to think so, but the jury's still out on whether or not the result is cute or creepy. Anyway, first clip from the March 22nd release has arrived and it seems that awkward romantic situations were also a thing back in the prehistoric times. Oh, those cavemen! They were just like us!
Despite 'Community' having aired only one episode under new show-runners Moses Port and David Guarascio, the debate continues to rage over the show's continued quality, and differences from the show's creator and previous show-runner Dan Harmon. That debate was no less prevalent at this past weekend's "CommuniCon," where Harmon spoke out about the show at length. In particular, Harmon revealed one of the many concept episodes as a potential Nicolas Cage episode that never materialized! Find out about the 'Community' that never was inside!
Now that 'The Expendables 3' is officially a go, our attention now turns to who exactly will be coming back into the fold for this beloved action franchise? Aside from the primary stars, there have been rumors that the studio was trying to get some newbies to step into the fold -- Nicolas Cage, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Clint Eastwood and Mickey Rourke. Now, after all this waiting, one of them as been confirmed!
