Last month we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming remake of Poltergeist, opening in theaters in August. Today we get to see the just-released new TV spot for Poltergeist that features lots of new footage not previously seen in the first movie trailer. I’ve already decided that I need to see this movie because based on what I’ve seen thus far, this new version of Poltergeist looks like a lot of fun. Believe me, they will never be able to top the original film … but this new version looks close enough to the original to be a fun time at the movies. I love the trailer, I love this TV spot, I can’t wait to see this movie when it opens on May 22 (moved up from the original July 24 date).

Well, damn. I'm in.
Wasn’t I just talking about Nymphomaniac yesterday? And how much I love/was traumatized by it? I wrote a little about how the film kind of made me a Shia LaBeouf fan. But all of the performances in the movie were really strong, especially that of the lead actor, Charlotte Gainsbourg, whose face continues to haunt my dreams. LOVED her, and I will now watch every movie she’s in. So it looks like I’m definitely going to see the Independence Day sequel, ID Forever, as Gainsbourg has now been cast, alongside Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher. Click inside for more!
Get Ready for the Return of Luda
If you’re like the rest of the world, every commercial for Furious 7 has you completely, ridiculously psyched for the new movie. One of the best things, for me, about these films is watching Ludacris on the big screen. He always stood at as a rapper (Chicken-n-Beer was seriously the soundtrack to my senior year in high school), and he’s now an even bigger deal than I could have imagined back in the day. For this reason, I was really excited to learn that, along with the realese of Furious 7, we can anticipate a new album from Luda. The rapper/actor/newlywed recently opened up to Vibe Magazine about the new album Ludaversal, how he got the role of Tej Parker, working with Paul Walker’s brother’s Caleb and Cody Walker, and of course Vin Diesel‘s viral Drunk In Love karaoke video.

Way back in March of last year we learned that actor BD Wong would be reprising his role as Dr. Henry Wu from Jurassic Park in the upcoming sequel film Jurassic World. Today we get our first look at Wong as Wu as he will appear in the new Jurassic movie. As you can see below, BD Wong has managed not to hardly age AT ALL in the 22 years since he appeared in Jurassic Park. As far as I know, Wong is the only actor from the first Jurassic movie to reprise their role for this much-anticipated sequel … so he is the true JP OG. More »

In December we learned that Paul Pee-Wee Herman Reubens signed a deal with Netflix to produce a new Pee-Wee Herman movie that will be produced by Judd Apatow.

Remember how we learned shortly after that short film was released that it would be adapted into a feature film? Well, today we get our first look at the first trailer for the Pixels feature film. In this movie, aliens attack Earth with giant video game characters bend on totally destruction of the human race … but in the cutest way possible. It’s Man vs. Pac-Man for world domination.
