‘War on Everyone’ Trailer: Get Ready for the Darkest Buddy Cops Yet
‘War on Everyone’ Trailer: Get Ready for the Darkest Buddy Cops Yet
A bruise-black crime comedy about a pair of tough-guy partners working in a dark-grey moral area to unravel a larger crime syndicate, executed with a '70s flair. It sure looks like 2017 will find its The Nice Guys in John Michael McDonagh's upcoming feature War on Everyone, the trailer for which debuted today in advance of its February 3 debut. The new Gosling/Crowe power couple is none other than Michael Peña (poised to rebound from the career cyanide of Collateral Beauty) and Alexander Skarsgård (also in need of a rebound, from this summer's dud Tarzan), as a pair of police officers who make typical cop-on-the-edge types look like they're not even on the edge, like they're a safe distance from the cliff.
Will Smith Reckons with Existence in New ‘Collateral Beauty’ Trailer
Will Smith Reckons with Existence in New ‘Collateral Beauty’ Trailer
Following through on the soupy metaphysics and syrupy emotionality of past projects Seven Pounds and The Pursuit of Happyness, Will Smith completes his “All Along, the Meaning of Life… Was Love” trilogy on December 16 with David Frankel’s Collateral Beauty. A new trailer for the inspirational/”inspirational” morality play has surfaced online today, and it contains all the sky-high emotions, A Christmas Carol-but-with-a-soul narrative structuring, and elaborate domino structures that audiences would expect. It could certainly use more footage of Smith playing with dominos, but then, what movie couldn’t?
‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Casts Michael Pena as ‘Red’
‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Casts Michael Pena as ‘Red’
Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time might have just cast its first villain, in the form of none other than Ant-Man co-star Michael Pena. At this point, we should have learned by now not to be surprised by any more casting choices, as DuVernay first made the central family of the film mixed race instead of white, and cast Zach Galifianakis as a character who’s normally a woman. And now we have Michael Pena, who could appear in the film as one of the most sinister, creepy characters of the book.
Michael Pena Confirmed for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’
Michael Pena Confirmed for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’
It’s a testament to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that Ant-Man was a critical and commercial success despite its highly publicized production issues. While many of the other films in the series deal with world domination or destruction, Ant-Man lowered the stakes a little bit and gave us an old-fashioned heist film about a group of lovable losers and an evil corporation. And none of these losers were quite so lovable as Michael Pena’s Luis, who stole an entire film from both Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd.

Stephen King’s ‘It,‘ ‘CHiPs’ Reboot Get 2017 Release Dates
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.
‘Ant-Man’ Blu-ray Trailer Promises More Excitement
‘Ant-Man’ Blu-ray Trailer Promises More Excitement
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.
