February 12 of next year will finally reunite audiences with bubbleheaded supermodel Derek Zoolander in a sequel to Ben Stiller’s 2001 fashion-world farce. Naturally, a film about the world of stylish haute couture advertisements would need only the...

Independent studio Relativity Media has released a surprising press release indicating that they’ve scheduled five new films for theatrical debuts in 2016. The announcement that a movie studio would release more movies is only surprising in this...
Cult comedies that attempt to regroup for a sequel many years after the original film often have mixed success. You’ll probably find few people who like Anchorman 2 or Dumb and Dumber To as much as the originals. But, that hasn’t stopped Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson from returning for Zoolander 2 and, despite the odds, this actually looks really funny.
The first trailer for Zoolander 2 arrived back in August, but we haven’t seen anything new from the long-awaited sequel since then. With the film’s release only three months away, now might be a good time to remind us that Derek and Hansel are returning to the big screen with all the Blue Steel they can manage. Speaking of which, Paramount has released two new posters featuring the really, really ridiculously good looking duo giving some rather fierce face.
No Escape, a disturbing action thriller, is a change of pace for Lake Bell, who’s best known for lighter fare. By her own admission, that’s by design. We talked about that, the shooting of the movie’s most memorable scene (where Owen Wilson throws the couple’s children from a hotel rooftop), and her desire to direct what she called “big-ass movies.”
His first four words are perhaps the most unnecessary introduction in the history of human civilization:
Boy, that Masterminds title feels so ironic now, huh?
The first teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 is currently playing in theaters with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. It was leaked online yesterday, and Paramount quickly yanked it — but the studio has released the official version online today, and it’s asking some very heavy questions about life, the universe and existence. More specifically: if God exists, then why did he make ugly people?
Back in March we saw the first teaser trailer for Masterminds, the new comedy from the director of Napoleon Dynamite, starring Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. That sounds like quite the lineup of comedic talent in a film that may very well redeem director Jared Hess after his follow-up films underperformed and were poorly-received by critics and audiences. The new, full trailer is quite promising, and even more promising are the writing credits: Eastbound and Down collaborators Jody Hill and Danny McBride.
Hey, remember Shanghai Noon and its sequel, Shanghai Knights? Those were a couple of pretty fun movies, huh? It’s been over 10 years since the sequel hit theaters, but studio executives haven’t forgotten the major bank they made at the box office by bringing together the unlikely duo of Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan in what almost became an unlikely trilogy. Not so unlikely anymore, as MGM is reportedly moving forward with Shanghai Dawn, which sadly will not mash-up the Shanghai franchise with Werner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn. Sorry.
