Since it was based on a YA series, you knew The Maze Runner was a setup for at least two sequels even before the movie ended on a blatant setup for at least two sequels.
The first sequel, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, follows Dylan O'Brien and company out of the Glade and into the harsh world beyond the mechanized labyrinth that entrapped them. Based on the first official images from The Scorch Trials, the former Gladers find a lot more than they bargained for in this dangerous new setting.
As promised, Disney has released a full theatrical trailer for Inside Out, Pixar's first original feature since Brave.
Dumbo is coming down Disney assembly line that turns animated classics into live-action juggernauts and the studio has secured a top-tier factory manager to make sure that the product is up to spec in the overbearing CGI and excessive spiral departments.
With Tim Burton set to direct the big-budget Dumbo, we're betting Johnny Depp is already pondering a role in the circus.
In San Andreas, Dwayne Johnson, a man who appears to have been formed by tectonic activity himself, has finally met his match.
The opponent worthy of The Rock isn't a mortal man or woman at all, but an unstoppable force of nature. It's the biggest earthquake in recorded history, one that lays waste to all of California and presents a rare challenge that Johnson can't pummel into submission.
The new San Andreas trailer showcases some massive destruction that's basically porn for anybody who finds debris sims really, really hot.
Now this is how you announce a release date:
As fictitious male mega-models Derek Zoolander and Hansel walked the runway at the Valentino Fashion Show, causing a worldwide ruckus, Paramount took to Twitter to announce that Zoolander 2 is set to hit a theater near you on February 12, 2016.
The latest Daredevil trailer is grimmer and grittier than any before.
After all manner of fisticuffs, it concludes on a little joke, a reminder that, despite almost unrelenting darkness and dourness, the show is still a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a place of armored avengers and magic hammers.
In the past few years, actor/director Kenneth Branagh has taken what he learned over decades of adapting William Shakespeare plays for the big screen and has applied it to reinventing some of Hollywood’s most beloved film franchises.
Branagh is best know for directing such popular Shakespeare film adaptations as Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing (1993), Hamlet (1996), Love’s Labour’s Lost, and As You Like It. He also directed Dead Again, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and the remake of Sleuth, as well as appearing in such high profile movies as Wild Wild West, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Valkyrie, Pirate Radio, and My Week with Marilyn, which earned him an Academy Award-nomination for Best Supporting Actor. But in recent years the actor/filmmaker has surprisingly directed such fan-favorite projects as the film adaptation of the Marvel comic book Thor, a reboot of the Tom Clancy series called Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and now a live-action version of the classic Disney animated movie Cinderella, which opens in theaters on March 13th.
The new film is a reinvention of the classic fairy tale and was written by Academy Award-nominee Chris Weitz (About a Boy). In Cinderella, when her father (Ben Chaplin) unexpectedly passes away, young Ella (Lily James) finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella's fortunes begins to change after meeting a dashing stranger in the woods, who turns out to be the Prince (Richard Madden). In addition, the film also features performances from Nonso Anozie (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), Stellan Skarsgard (Nymphomaniac: Vol. I), Hayley Atwell (The Sweeney), and Helena Bonham Carter (Fight Club) as the Fairy Godmother.
I recently had the absolute honor of sitting down with the great Kenneth Branagh to talk about his work on Cinderella. The extremely accomplished actor and filmmaker discussed his latest movie, how adapting Shakespeare plays prepared him for his current work, sifting through years of mythology to find the best story, redefining Cinderella for a new generation, casting Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter as the Stepmother and Fairy Godmother respectively, finding the right actress to play the title role, and why he decided to include the mice from the animated film in his live-action adaptation.
You don't actually need to visit New York to get a taste of the Big Apple.
The Girl Is In Trouble, which hits theaters and VOD next month, takes you there, giving audiences a gritty insider's look at the Lower East Side.
Columbus Short (ABC's Scandal), stars in this indie thriller as August, a Manhattan DJ-turned-bartender "struggling to keep his life together becomes entangled in a murder mystery involving a desperate woman, a missing drug dealer, and the scion of a powerful investment firm."
In The Girl Is In Trouble, August's life and fate are irrevocably intertwined with those of an eclectic group of supporting players played by the likes of Wilmer Valderrama (Fox's That 70's Show), Alicja Bachleda (Ondine), Jesse Spencer (NBC's Chicago Fire), Paz De La Huerta (HBO's Boardwalk Empire), Mike Starr (Goodfellas), Miriam Colon (Top Five).
Two-time Academy Award nominee Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) is executive producer of the film, which marks the feature directorial debut of Julius Onah, who also co-wrote the script. Onah, the director of the much-discussed short Big Man, is on board to direct the A-list scifi adaptation Brilliance, as well as the mysterious God Particle produced by JJ Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
Onah's first movie is right around the corner, with eOne Entertainment releasing The Girl Is In Trouble in theaters and via Video On Demand this April 3rd.
In anticipation of next month's release, IAR is bringing you a big bite of New York an exclusive The Girl Is In Trouble poster and thirteen equally exclusive stills from this unique thriller.
Apparently we're on the cusp of not just next summer's Ghostbusters reboot, but a whole cinematic universe, a Marvel-style set of cross-pollinating paranormal franchises.
The curious thing about the 'Bustiverse is that it is reportedly as divided by gender as a kindergarten playground.
Paul Feig's all-female reboot is still happening, and it's the Iron Man of a Ghostbusters Universe, the second installment in which will be a "male-driven action-centric comedy" that may very well star Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt.
Tatum is just one member in a pretty crazy team of talent Sony Pictures has assembled serve as a creative brain trust. O.G. B.G. shot-callers Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd are producing alongside Tatum and his partners Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan with the Russo Brothers producing and maybe – just maybe – directing, too.
Almost a year to the day before The Free State of Jones is set to hit theaters, we're getting our first look at Matthew McConaughey in the anticipated Civil War drama.
