The big screen adaptation of the 1960s series, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., has been in the works for some time now. Numerous names including George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Chris Pine, Matt Damon, Channing Tatum, Jon Hamm and Tom Cruise have been attached at some point or another. In the end, Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill were the ones finally chosen to star in the spy-fi action comedy film.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s period of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo (Caville) and Illya Kuryakin (Hammer). The two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
Hugh Grant also appears in the film, playing Waverly, the head of U.N.C.L.E. Rounding out the cast in the Guy Ritchie-directed film are Alicia Vikander, Jared Harris, Elizabeth Debicki and Luca Calvani. Check out the first trailer released by Warner Bros. below. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. hits theaters on August 14.
Judd Apatow’s latest comedy, Trainwreck, makes its debut next month at this year’s SXSW festival. Earlier today, Universal dropped the first trailer of the Bridesmaid producer’s next comedy blockbuster.
Apatow tapped Amy Schumber as the film’s leading loveable trainwreck who doesn’t believe in monogamy. She’s joined by several SNL alums including Vanessa Bayer, Bill Hader and Colin Quinn. Basketball star LeBron James also stars in the film along with appearances from John Cena, Brie Larson and Tilda Swinton.
Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s (Schumer) head by her rascal of a dad that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo – enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment – but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.
Trainwreck crashes into theaters on July 17. Check out the first trailer below.
While performing for the President of the United States, Rebel Wilson ends up showing off more than she intended when her uniform splits. Poor girl dangles like a piñata during a “Wrecking Ball” cover. This is just one of the new hilarious moments shown in the new worldwide trailer for Pitch Perfect 2.
After getting suspended for Wilson’s indecent exposure, the Barden Bellas enter an international singing competition in hopes they get reinstated. Unfortunately, no American team has ever won. Check out the new trailer below. The highly-anticipated sequel hits theaters on May 15.
The first teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated Magic Mike sequel just debuted. While it doesn’t give away too much in terms of storyline, it does reveal plenty of scenes of Channing Tatum and company without their shirts. Let’s face it, that’s why we pay the price of admission.
The clip starts off with Tatum working in a metal workshop before busting out moves to Ginuwine’s “Pony” once again. After that, a montage of beach and clubs scenes follow showing the sexy antics Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Adam Rodriguez experience on their road trip to a stripping convention.
Magic Mike XXL slinks into theaters on July 1, 2015. Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith, Andie MacDowell, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Michael Strahan and Ellen DeGeneres’ sexy gardener Billy Reilich join the cast. Get your first look at the sexy sequel below.
While I like Mark Wahlberg, his 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes was not good. Much to my surprise, I quite enjoyed the 2011 reboot, Rise of the Planet of the Apes starring James Franco. So much so, I’m looking forward to the sequel scheduled to hit theaters next year. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes just released the first trailer and things don’t look too bright for the humans in the film.
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
The only returning person from its predecessor is Andy Serkis who voices Caesar. While cute, cuddly and sympathetic to humans in the first film, he’s become the ruthless leader of an ape uprising. Replacing Freida Pinto and Franco as the humans in the film are Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Judy Greer also joins the cast but as an ape named Cornelia. Check out the trailer below.
Without a doubt, my favorite Adam Sandler movies have always included the adorable Drew Barrymore. Loved The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. The two reunite once again for another movie and I predict it’ll perfectly complete their romantic comedy trilogy. Blended also reunites them with their Wedding Singer director, Frank Coraci.
After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.
Rounding out the cast are Joel McHale (Community), Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids), Terry Crews (White Chicks), Kevin Nealon (Weeds) and Bella Thorne (Shake It Up). Blended was predominantly filmed in South Africa. It’s scheduled to hit theaters on May 23, 2014. Expect huge Memorial Day box office receipts. Check out the trailer below.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as high school students was a huge stretch. Managing to suspend disbelief was definitely required to watch 21 Jump Street. At least for the sequel, passing off as undercover college kids is a tad more believable. With that being said, they’re still as “old as sh*t,” as astutely pointed out by another student.
After successfully navigating the tricky world of high school politics, Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) now face the pressures of collegiate life including rushing for fraternities and co-ed bathrooms, as they attempt to bring down another drug ring.
With its predecessor being a surprise hit, generating over $200 million worldwide, naturally Sony Pictures fast-tracked the sequel. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller return to direct 22 Jump Street, which is set for a June 13 release. Ice Cube also returns as Captain Dickson, the head of the Jump Street program. Nick Offerman, Rob Riggle and Dave Franco are just a few rumored to make a cameo in the film. Check out the red band trailer below.
The 43-year-old director’s next big film boasts a star-studded cast which includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo and more. However, McConaughey is the only one featured in the first trailer for Interstellar. He narrates the teaser.
“We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count this moment… This moment when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known,” he says in the teaser. “I count this moment as our proudest achievement.”
The teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much more details about the largely-anticipated space epic than previously released. All that we know is that it’s influenced by reknowned physicist Kip Thorne and involves time travel, a wormhole, and alternate dimensions. Check out the visual below. Interstellar hits theaters on November 7, 2014.
A newly discovered wormhole paves the way for mankind to embark on an interstellar journey that surpasses any voyage ever attempted. Upon discovery, a team of explorers and scientists are assembled in an effort to use the wormhole to conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. – Official Description
