The first trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has been released, which sees the gang from the first film (minus John Cusack) jumping back into the warm, yet unhygienic bubbles, this time heading to the future. This entry brings on Adam
Based on the John le Carré novel by the same name, Anton Corbijn’s A Most Wanted Man strips away the stylish veneer of other adaptations such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and brings us a slow burn spy flick that manages to be just barely entertaining despite the great cast and decent performances.
A new trailer for Jon Schnepp‘s (Metalocalypse) upcoming documentary about the ill-fated Tim Burton Superman movie, The Death of Superman Lives has been released. Through interviews and old test footage, Schnepp explores the reasons why this film, scripted by Kevin Smith and

Set in a ’70s version of the future, Jack Plotnick‘s Space Station 76 was one of the stranger, more humorous films I saw at SXSW this year. The film stars Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer, and Marisa Coughlan as
A new full length trailer for Justin Simien‘s satirical comedy Dear White People has been released after the overwhelming amount of positive feedback on the first teaser. The film stars Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon P. Bell, Kyle
The first teaser trailer for Punk’s Dead: SLC Punk 2 has been released, and although Matthew Lillard won’t be joining them, much of the cast of the original will be back including Devon Sawa (where’s he been?), Adam Pascal, James Duval and Michael Goorjian (coming back from the
The first teaser trailer for Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut Nightcrawler has hit online, which sees star Jake Gyllenhaal asking for a job in the most intense way possible. There’s not too much known about the plot at this point other than Gyllenhaal plays a
Magnet has released a new poster for the upcoming horror film Honeymoon, written and directed by Leigh Janiak and starring Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) and Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful). This creepy little body horror film happened to be one of the highlights of SXSW
