Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials Debuts First Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
the-scorch-trials-movie-trailer

The next chapter of James Dashner’s dystopian sci-fi saga, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, hits theaters on September 18. The first film, made for just $34 million, was a blockbuster hit, earning $340.8 million worldwide. The sequel should match its performance, if not exceed it.

I enjoyed the first part of the trilogy much more than I thought I would. Much better than Divergent in my opinion and other recent young adult novel adaptations, with exception to The Hunger Games franchise of course.

Movie Synopsis

Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.

Joining O’Brien for the second go-round include Ki Hong Lee, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson, Rosa Salazar, Aidan Gillen and Giancarlo Esposito. Check out below the exciting first look at the next installment.

Anna Kendrick As A Female Indiana Jones?

In: Donovan, Movies
anna-kendrick-female-indiana-jones

Given Hollywood’s track record rebooting popular films with female leads like Ghostbusters and The Expendables, this doesn’t seem that far fetched. Anna Kendrick can do no wrong in my book, but wearing the archeologist’s signature hat and handling his whip would be a huge misstep. Thankfully, this is just a promo for NBC’s upcoming Red Nose Day special on May 21.

The Pitch Perfect actress plays Indianna Jones (note the spelling) in this cute parody. She recreates that memorable Grail Room scene from Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. Does Anna pick the right cup or does she meet an untimely fate? Watch the video below and find out.

While Ashton Kutcher might look like the former Apple CEO more, I’m pretty confident this latest film about the innovator’s life will be better received commercially and critically. The pedigree behind Steve Jobs is nothing short of stellar. Michael Fassbender plays the titular role while Kate Winslet (Joanna Hoffman), Seth Rogen (Steve Wozniak) and Jeff Daniels (John Sculley) appear in supporting roles.

Movie Synopsis

Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.

The first official teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much in terms of plot. Instead it shows Fassbender wearing Jobs’ signature black turtleneck while voiceovers play in the background. “You can’t write code, you are not an engineer,” a man says. Jobs replies, “The musicians play the instruments. I play the orchestra.” Oh snap!!!

Steve Jobs hits theaters on October 9. Check out the clip below.

pitch-perfect-2-opening

The Barden Bellas hit all the right notes at the box office this weekend. Most were predicting the highly-anticipated sequel would take a number in the $40 million range. Pitch Perfect 2 surpassed industry expectations, taking home a whopping $70.3 million.

It snatched the crown from High School Musical 3 to become the biggest movie musical opening of all time. Even more impressive is the fact Pitch Perfect raked in only $65 million during its entire run. Who run the world? Anna Kendrick and company, that’s who.

According to Simon Pegg, the answer is yes. He let it slip at the London premiere of his new film, Man Up. Pegg spilled the beans when he was asked about his rumored role in the highly-anticipated Star Wars film. Learn the tea he served below.

the-intern-movie-trailer

One would think that Anne Hathaway is the intern in this situation, but it’s actually Robert DeNiro. The Raging Bull actor plays a 70-ish widower who decides to ditch retirement and become a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Hathaway. As you’d expect, it’s DeNiro who ends up teaching Hathaway a few invaluable life lessons.

The Intern was written and directed by Nancy Meyers (The Holiday, What Women Want, It’s Complicated). At one point, Tina Fey and Michael Caine were cast to play the May-December friends. When they dropped out, Witherspoon was attached. In the end, I think Anne and Robert were the perfect choice. They show a winning chemistry in the trailer.

Joining the Oscar winners in the comedy are Andrew Rannells, Rene Russo, Adam DeVine, Linda Lavin and Snoop Dogg. The Intern hits theaters on September 25. Check out the charming first trailer below.

crimson-peak-movie-poster

If the master of horror Stephen King calls Crimson Peak terrifying, it’s safe to say the film will be one frightening ride. King attended an early screening and called it “gorgeous and just f*cking terrifying” and that it “electrified” him. With that kind of praise, I’m definitely intrigued.

Crimson Peak comes from the brilliant mind of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim). It stars Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam and Mia Wasikowska. The film is scheduled to haunt theaters on October 16. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Synopsis

Set in Cumbria, in a crumbling mansion in a largely rural and mountainous region of northern England in the 19th century, young author Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) discovers that her charming new husband Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) is not who he appears to be.

jem-and-the-holograms-movie-trailer

I had such high hopes for the live adaptation of Jem And The Holograms. But just as I feared, it appears it’s going to be one hot mess. This isn’t anything like the 80s cartoon beloved by so many.

Where in the hell is Synergy and more importantly, The Misfits? So not truly outrageous. If anything, the film looks like a poor man’s Josie and the Pussycats. Remember that Rachel Leigh Cook and Rosario Dawson flick?

Movie Synopsis

As a small-town girl catapults from underground video sensation to global superstar, she and her three sisters begin a one-in-a-million journey of discovering that some talents are too special to keep hidden. In Universal Pictures’ Jem and the Holograms, four aspiring musicians will take the world by storm when they see that the key to creating your own destiny lies in finding your own voice.

The film stars Aubrey Peeples, Hayley Kiyoko, Stefanie Scott and Aurora Perrineau as Jem and her band mates. Molly Ringwald, Juliette Lewis and Ryan Guzman play supporting roles. Not even if Guzman appeared full frontal would I be remotely interested in this. Well, maybe I could be persuaded ;)

Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber’s manager, is one of the producers of the film. Dude needs to put away for life for this blasphemous version. Jem And The Holograms hits theaters in December 2015. Check out the first trailer below.
