The new, non-MCU Spider-Man movie will be animated and will not focus on Peter Parker at all — rather, it’s Miles Morales’ turn in the spotlight, and the Internet has been buzzing about this since it was announced. There was a hashtag a while back that campaigned for Donald Glover to audition to voice Miles, and while he seems to have his hands full with a couple other franchises, we might know of another star lending his voice to a character. According to a new rumor, Ice Cube might voice Miles’ father.
A few hundred years ago we had gladiators, now we have the cinema, and it looks like 2017 is the year we get to see our favorite actors beat each other up. The new Red Band trailer for Ice Cube and Charlie Day’s Fist Fight starts off with a brief overview of how horrible the students are at this rough school, but it’s the teachers themselves who’ll start a royal rumble once one of them gets on the other’s bad side.
The cast of xXx: Return of Xander Cage is nothing short of ridiculous — in a good, mind-boggling way — combining the forces of Vin Diesel with Game of Thrones’ Rory McCann, Ruby Rose, Donnie Yen, and Nina Dobrev, and that’s not even half of the new team made up of “the good, the extreme, and the completely insane.” If you’re not too blown away by the prospect of motorcycling through waves, a new TV spot reveals the return of a familiar face.
More often than not, schoolteachers have just as much beef with each other as the students they teach. Acting like models of excellence in front of 30 or 40 kids a day has got to be exhausting, and sometimes we all just need to let off some steam. A movie starring both Charlie Day and Ice Cube — not to mention Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, and Christina Hendricks — hardly has to be marketed, but Warner Bros. has just released their second trailer for next year’s Fist Fight.
O’Shea Jackson Jr., better known as rapper and erstwhile N.W.A. affiliate Ice Cube, has changed a touch over the years. Just last year, his own son reenacted all the partyin’ and sexin’ and gun-totin’ of his dad’s younger years in the biopic Straight Outta Compton, showing how the seminal gangsta rapper changed the rap game with a loaded weapon and a cop-hating snarl. But in the years since his late ‘80s/early ‘90s heyday, Mr. Cube has taken some decidedly un-thug work as the face of the Are We There Yet? franchise, and now the man who once exhorted the listeners of America to f–k the police will lend his songwriting talents to none other than Disney.
In high school there was almost nothing more exciting than a school fight. It starts with a buzz of murmuring, then a frenzy breaks out as a swarm of bobbling backpacks rush to the center of the quad to see the brawl go down. The only thing that would make that refreshing break from youthful ennui even more thrilling is if that fight was between teachers. And thus, we have Fist Fight.
The hottest franchise property this spring doesn’t have any leveled cities, declarations about whether men are or are not still good, or bulging muscles writhing beneath colored spandex. Barbershop: the Next Cut, the third installment in the Barbershop Cinematic Universe, will debut on April 15 and undoubtedly upend the many box-office records that Batman vs...
