There is no hope for mankind
Earlier today we learned that the forthcoming sequel movie Independence Day 2 has been given the title Resurgence and we got to see promo photos and video from an ID2 event that took place last night to announce the film’s title and official synopsis. Right now we get to see a photo of the principal cast of ID2: Resurgence that was shared on Facebook by director Roland Emmerich … and appears to have been taken by actor Jeff Goldblum … holding a selfie stick. Sigh. The cast photo is fun, tho, so let’s try and ignore the selfie stickness of this photo and try and enjoy it anyways ;) More »

He is expected to feature in 'Civil War'
Back in March we first started hearing rumors about which young actors were in contention to become the new Spider-Man in the next phase of movies from Sony Pictures. As you may recall, Sony and Marvel Studios reached an agreement where they will share usage of the Spider-Man character on the big screen and it is expected that the new Spider-Man will be featured in the upcoming Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War before he stars in his own set of Spider-Man movies. Today we learn that Tom Holland (The Impossible) has won the coveted role of the web-slinging superhero. Move over Tobey McGuire, step aside Andrew Garfield … there’s a new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man on the scene. More »
We are just about a year away from the theatrical release of the upcoming sequel film Independence Day 2 and in celebration of that fact, the studio has announced the title of the new film.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is still enjoying a healthy run in movie theaters right now but plans are already in the works for the next Avengers movie, Infinity War – Part 1. Today we are hearing that Marvel is reportedly interested in getting pop star and sometimes actress Beyoncé to star in the next Avengers movie … which is interesting and weird, I think. I love Beyoncé but not necessarily for her acting roles. And altho the Marvel movies aren’t really the kinds of movies that require amazing acting performances, I can’t help but think that Bey would stick out like a sore thumb if she were to star in The Avengers: Infinity War. Click below to read what was reportedly said about Beyoncé possibly starring in the next Avengers movie and see what you think of the prospect of Bey as a superhero. More »
This looks ridiculous and cheesy and kind of awesome
Sure, this sort of looks like a movie we’ve seen before. It’s Step-Brothers, but with Dads. It’s The Other Guys, in that it re-teams Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. But it’s still fun! Ferrell is playing a step-father who’s having trouble convincing the kids of his awesomeness—a task which becomes even more difficult when their bilogical dad comes back into town, with his abs and treehouse-building skillz. It looks a little cheesy, but I did LOL at “goodnight back scratches.” Peep the video for more!
Is it getting moist in here?
Warner Bros. has released a new clip of footage from the upcoming male stripper sequel film Magic Mike XXL, in theaters next weekend, and as you can see above, this clip features actor Matt Bomer seducing a woman NOT with his nekkid, rock hard & chiseled body … but by singing the Bryan Adams song Heaven as he holds her face. The clip is short but it is oh so very sweet. Magic Mike XXL will open in theaters on July 1 … and you know you’re gonna wanna head out to see this movie in order to watch the MMXXL men titillate and seduce in every way possible, right?
Prepare to get slimed
Last week, we learned the happy news that actor Chris Hemsworth has been added to the cast of the all-female led remake of Ghostbusters where he will play the receptionist (Gene?). Today we learn from director Paul Feig that this new incarnation of Ghostbusters will begin filming production today. Feig posted a fun photo on his official Twitter profile yesterday announcing the start of filming production today and as you can see below, he used a bit of green ectoplasm slime to make the announcement. I am so freaking happy that this movie is being made, I cannot wait to see how it all turns out. More »

Will you choose the Dark Side or the Light Side?
The Hunger Games released a line of themed cosmetics as did The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (with Revlon), as did Maleficent (with MAC Cosmetics) as did Divergent (with Sephora). Today we learn, via the Star Wars fan site Rebel Scum, that CoverGirl has teamed up with Star Wars for a make-up line themed around The Force Awakens. The gallery presented here gives us a sneak peek at some of the cosmetics offerings that will be released for those who identify with the Dark Side or the Light Side. I love that these cosmetics companies are catering to the fans who like to wear make-up AND are fans of sci-fi movies. If I were a girl, I’d be really interested in these kinds of products. My guess is that CoverGirl‘s line of Star Wars cosmetics will be available for sale by the time The Force Awakens hits theaters in December. Does this look like something you’d like to wear?
The TV Guide
Last night was a really fun night for me … I got to spend time with my friend Michael (who I don’t get to see nearly as much as I’d like due to the fact that he lives in NYC) and then I got to see Jurassic World in 4DX again (I know, I’m obsessed, I can’t help it). Michael has been in San Francisco lately directing a production of Peter Pan (which I am SO BUMMED I missed, it closes this weekend) and he was passing through LA yesterday and reached out for a hang. He took me to see a musical production at the Geffen Playhouse that blew me away so entirely, I can’t even believe how lucky I was to see the show. After my time with Michael, I met up with Eileen and her friend Jacqui at the Regal Cinemas Theater at LA Live in DTLA to see Jurassic again in 4DX … and it was just as fun as the first time! More »
"Snoopy, what would I do without a friend like you"
In November of last year, we got our first look at the first teaser trailer for the upcoming animated feature film The Peanuts Movie. In January, we got to see a second trailer for the film. Today we get to see a just-released new trailer that gives us our first look at Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang in action … and also gives us our first opportunity to hear the characters speak. As you can see in the trailer embedded above, many of the Peanuts gags that we’ve seen in the comic strip and classic animated specials have been updated for this new film … and I like what I see. While some may take anything other than the classic Peanuts specials (It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Christmas, etc.) as blasphemy, I can see the fun potential of this movie. Check out the trailer and see what you think, The Peanuts Movie will hit theaters this holiday season.
