trolls-justin-timberlake-branch

Trolls is the latest beloved toy brand to head to the silver screen. Dreamworks enlisted an all-star cast to voice the characters and bring them to life in the animated film.

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick have been tapped to play the trolls named Branch and Princess Poppy respectively. With them on board, along with several others with singing backgrounds, I expect plenty of musical numbers in the film. The creative team developing the project have also worked on Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Trolls is slated to hit theaters on November 4, 2016. Check out the cast below, which includes some YouTube personalities, comedians and TV stars.

trainwreck-wga-nomination

Well, isn’t this interesting. Amy Schumer just snagged a 2016 Writers Guild of America nomination for her original screenplay for Trainwreck. This bodes well for her chances at the upcoming Academy Awards.

In the last 10 years, seven WGA Original Screenplay winners went on to win the Best Original Screenplay Oscar and eight WGA Adapted Screenplay winners won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Having said that, it’s important to keep in mind that Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight wasn’t eligible for the WGA Awards, along with a few others including Mad Max: Fury Road, Room, The Danish Girl, and Brooklyn. Still, Schumer has a fighting chance. Check out all the nominees below.

star-wars-the-force-awakens-record

Ever since it hit theaters, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has wreaked havoc at the box office, breaking record after record. The film’s latest accomplishment is a huge one. It dethrones Avatar as the all-time top earning movie at the domestic box office.

Avatar raked in $760.5 million during its run. In just 20 days, Rey, Finn and crew passed that with $761.0 million and counting. The James Cameron-helmed film held the record for six years. If inflation was taken into account, Gone With The Wind is still the number one film of all-time. It earned $189.5 million in 1939, a gross equivalent to more than $1.7 billion today.

Though Star Wars is the all-time domestic leader, experts say Avatar‘s global title likely won’t be snatched. Star Wars which currently has $1.5 billion in the bank is projected to end with an estimated $2.2 billion to $2.4 billion. Avatar earned $2.78 billion worldwide.

Do you think Star Wars can pass Avatar‘s global box office haul? Weigh in below.

deadpool-bachelor-promo

With The Bachelor being one of television’s biggest shows, naturally, ad spots during the premiere are coveted. 20th Century Fox shelled out some coin to debut another promo for its upcoming superhero film, Deadpool.

To appeal to the female-skewing reality series, the promo plays up the romance factor. Ryan Reynolds holds a rose and just like all of ABC’s Bachelors, he seductively takes off his shirt.

“Hello, you’re probably thinking, my boyfriend said this is a superhero movie. Well, surprise! This is actually, lucky you, a love story,” Ryan says in character. “When your worst enemy is after your girl, it’s time to be a superhero.”

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Deadpool arrives in theaters on February 12, 2016. Check out the latest promo below.

joss-whedon-leaves-marvel

It’s the end of an era. The Marvel Universe as we know it on the big screen no longer have Joss Whedon’s magic touch. The 51-year-director recently revealed in an interview with Oxford Union that he’s stepping away from the blockbuster franchise.

“It’s important to me, not just to have my own thing and do something smaller, but also to create a new challenge for myself because I will start to repeat myself. I think Steven Soderbergh during one of his ‘I’m retiring’ moments said, ‘I’m finding the same solutions for problems. I found myself in the same way. I need to increase my vocabulary because I’m now at a place where enough people know what I do and I’ve done it enough where I could just sort of vaguely do that, and that is how you become old and obsolete. As an artist … I need to make it harder for myself, so I’m working on a few personal projects that I can’t describe. But I can tell you that they’re really hard, and I’m totally failing, and it feels great.”

Whedon directed both Avengers feature films, along with contributing on the Thor and Captain America franchises. He’s also helped create Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC.

Joss also goes on to talk about the lack of female presence in the Marvel movies. Pssst, it’s the ‘money men’s” fault. Watch the entire interview below. It’s around the nine minute mark where he chats about Marvel.

4th-man-out-trailer

4th Man Out has pleased audiences during its run on the film festival circuit. On February 5, the gay indie flick hits theaters and VOD.

The premise of the movie is nothing groundbreaking but it looks quite charming. It follows a mechanic who comes out as gay on his 24th birthday. His buddies rally around him and assist him in finding romance, not of the Grindr variety but true long-lasting love.

With hot studs Chord Overstreet and Parker Young by his side, Switched at Birth‘s Evan Todd should have no problem luring thirsty boys in. Overstreet looks even hotter than his Glee days. That beard sure does suit him. Check out the trailer below, along with additional movie clip.

4th Man Out Movie Synopsis

Evan Todd (“Switched at Birth”) stars as Adam, a small-town, blue-collar mechanic who likes beer and hockey but surprises his buddies when he tells them he’s gay. Well meaning but perhaps fated to trip over themselves, hilarity ensues when said buddies all try to help Adam find a boyfriend.

Long before he was Han Solo or Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford paid his bills by doing carpentry work. In fact, he was doing some work for Francis Ford Coppola when he bumped into George Lucas. You never know where you’ll get discovered.

As anyone who’s walked past a construction site before, some of those dudes holding power tools are fine as hell. Back in the 70s, Ford was one of those.

Brazilian musician Sergio Mendes recently shared a shirtless pic of a then 28-year-old Ford building a recording studio. As you’d expect, Harrison was a catch during those days. To be fair, at 73-years-old, he’s still looks pretty good.

“Before Han Solo, there was a great carpenter named Harrison Ford. And here he is, with his crew, the day he finished building my recording studio back in 1970…Thank you Harrison…may the force be with you…” Sergio captioned the photo below. Check it out.
