Cassidy Gifford, daughter of Kathie Lee Gifford, headlines the found footage-style shot flick. The Gallows hits theaters on July 10. Check out the intense first trailer below.

Who doesn’t love a good pot-themed comedy? Dazed & Confused and Pineapple Express quickly come to mind as two of the best. Hoping to follow their success at the box office and stoner households around the world is Jesse Eisenberg’s new film, American Ultra. Mark Zuckerberg, definitely he is not, in this action comedy.

Eisenberg plays a stoner in a small town who finds his life disrupted when his past comes to haunt him. Apparently, at one time he was a trained assassin. Check out the official synopsis below.

Movie Synopsis

An action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.

American Ultra re-teams Eisenberg and Stewart for the first time in five years. They previously starred in Greg Mottola’s Adventureland. Joining them in the film are Topher Grace, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman and John Leguizamo.

The film smokes up at theaters on August 21. Check out the entertaining red band trailer below.

FOX Developing Urban Cowboy TV Series

In: Donovan, Movies, Music
urban-cowboy-remake

Normally, the idea of any remake nauseates me, especially when it involves a classic. However, this one actually has me excited. Instead of trying to recapture the magic at the box office, FOX is bringing Urban Cowboy to television.

The series will follow the star-crossed relationship of Sissy and Bud as it unfolds against the gritty backdrop of rodeos, oil refineries, line dancing clubs and other aspects of modern-day Texas.

Adapting the John Travolta and Debra Winger classic for the small screen is a brilliant idea. Reportedly, the network is eying the project as a possible companion series for their mega-hit Empire. Given that the film is equally memorable for its soundtrack, this is a match made in heaven.

Are you looking forward to this potential series? I am. It’s going to be Empire meets Dallas meets Nashville. Check out a few of the memorable tracks from the film. My favorite is the Boz Scaggs track written by a young David Foster.

wild-horses-movie-trailer

Anyone else starting to lose count on how many times James Franco has played a gay character on film? I have and I’m sure there are plenty more homosexual parts in his future.

It’s never my intention to push anyone to come out, but can he just get it over with already. We all know one day it’s going to happen ;)

For his latest role, the 37-year-old plays the estranged gay son of Robert Duvall’s character in the crime film, Wild Horses. The movie which premiered at South by Southwest was written and directed by Duvall and also stars his wife, Luciana.

Rounding out the cast are Josh Hartnett, Adriana Barraza and True Blood’s Jim Parrack. Wild Horses rides into select theaters and on VOD on June 5, 2015. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Synopsis

Texas Ranger Samantha Payne (Luciana Duvall) reopens a 15-year-old Missing Persons case, uncovering clues linking a local boy’s death to wealthy family man, Scott Briggs (Robert Duvall). Samantha will stop at nothing to discover the truth even if it means risking her own life.

With the unexpected return of his estranged son Ben (James Franco), Briggs must find a way to either silence the law for good, or come to terms with the relationship between Ben and the boy that he tried to conceal all those years ago.

Point Break Remake Looks Like A Thrilling Ride

In: Donovan, Movies
point-break-remake-trailer

I’d hardly refer to Point Break as a classic, but its beloved by many, including myself. When it was announced a remake of the Kathryn Bigelow film was in production, naturally, I was a bit trepidatious. Could anyone match Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze’s awesomeness in the action crime film?

It may be presumptuous on my part, but based on the trailer, I would say they might actually improve upon it. It’s like Fast and the Furious meets the Bourne films on acid. The remake makes the original film look like child’s play with all its death-defying action.

Movie Synopsis

“A young FBI agent infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists.”

Stepping into Reeves’ place to play Johnny Utah is Luke Bracey. Originally, Gerard Butler was set to play Swayze’s part, ringleader Bodhi, but he was replaced by Edgar Ramirez. Whatever chain of events led to the casting change, I approve. Ramirez sizzles on the screen.

Delroy Lindo and Teresa Palmer round out the cast. Point Break jumps into theaters on Christmas Day in limited theaters, before getting a wide release. Check out action-packed first trailer below.

mean-girls-mansion

Are you a hardcore Mean Girls fan? Got about $15 million kicking around? Perhaps, this piece of real estate might be of interest.

Regina George’s home featured in the teen flick is on the market for a cool $14.8 million. Situated in Toronto, Canada, the mammoth NeoClassical stone residence is approximately 20,000 square feet. That’s 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms on a private 2 acre property. Naturally, it also has a garage big enough for six vehicles. Duh!

It appears that Regina’s bedroom in the movie isn’t an actual room on the property. Besides the Gone With The Wind-esque staircase, killer kitchen and stunning grounds, the mansion doesn’t appeal to me too much. It’s kinda bipolar with its all-white rooms and old-lady decor in others. Get a sneak peek at the home below and share your thoughts afterwards.

Make it rain bitches, make it rain. If you prefer your exotic dancers with a bit more flavor, Chocolate City is for you. The urban Magic Mike grinds into select theaters and On Demand nationwide today.

Movie Synopsis

Welcome to Chocolate City, where the music is hot, the mood is magical, and the dancers are simply delicious. Women go wild when the arrival of a young, new dancer (Robert Ri’chard) has the spot sizzling like never before. Michael, a college student, is struggling to help his mother (Vivica A. Fox) make ends meet. When his part time job doesn’t pay the bills, he begins to find success at the nightclub dancing as “Sexy Chocolate.” As the money starts rolling in, Michael must deal with the unexpected pressure of being the new favorite flavor while hiding his “job” from his mother and girlfriend. Co-starring Tyson Beckford and Michael Jai White, Chocolate City is a steamy, fun ride that has all the right moves.

To celebrate its release, the stripper flick has unveiled three brand new clips from the film. Beckford previously stated, “Black strip clubs and white strip clubs are totally different.” Check out the clips and trailer below and see if his claims have any merit.
