The Secret Life of Pets is the third animal-based animated film of the summer (behind Zootopia and Finding Dory) and the probably the slimmest in terms of plot and/or saying stuff – but that doesn’t mean it’s not almost sublimely smart, silly fun.
The Lonely Island boys (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) are one for one in their budding movie careers(s). Popstar: Never Stop Stopping isn’t so much Spinal Tap for the 21st Century as it is Spinal Tap for the Viral Age.
Popstar is the story of a Conner4Real – who has become the world’s top pop star following the breakup of the hip hop trio, Style Boys, a group consisting of Conner and his best friends since they were tykes, Owen and Laurence. Having just destroyed the world with his first solo album, he is totally unprepared for his second to be received poorly and goes off the rails.
Remember that nifty little horror movie The Purge? The one that was followed by the mostly adequate (but not really great shakes) sequel The Purge: Anarchy?
Well, in case you missed the first trailer for it, the sequel made enough money to spawn a threequel – The Purge Election Year. Basically, there’s a senator who wants to abolish the Purge – and whole lot of bloodthirsty manics who don’t want her to do that.
Check out the new trailer after the jump. The Purge: Election Year opens on July 1st.
The long wait is nearly over – Mark Damon and Paul Greengrass have, once again, teamed up for another thrilling Jason Bourne movie (called Jason Bourne – in a stunning example of less is more marketing).
Check out the trailer after the jump. Jason Bourne opens on July 29th.
The Boss stars Melissa McCarthy as Michelle Darnell – the 47th wealthiest woman in America. When she’s found guilty of insider trading, her empire crumbles – and is swept up by her business rival (and ex-boyfriend), Renault.
On her release, she’s forced to live with regular folks – her former assistant, Claire and her daughter Rachel – but she happens upon some of Claire’s brownies and looks to them to be the foundation of her comeback.
It’s been fourteen years since Nia Vardalos’ My Big Fat Greek Wedding came out of nowhere to do $254 million dollars because of its exploration of how large Greek families react when one of them falls in love with a non-Greek.
The sequel is equally as filled with that unique mix of culture and shtick, but it’s still enough to wring more than a few laughs (and tears) from today’s jaded audiences (there was even applause at the screening I attended).
‘If It’s the Snow White tale you’re looking for, discover the story that came before,’ says the narrator in the new trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War – the prequel to Snow white and the Huntsman.
Considering how little we wanted a follow-up to the first film, I have to say that this new trailer is more dark fun than I expected. Check it out after the jump. The Huntsman: Winter’s War opens on April 22nd.
