The Greatest Showman is a movie musical about P.T. Barnum – the founder of America’s first circus. Movie musicals are not known for their historical accuracy, but – considering that there are many biographies of the man which paint him as anywhere from an honest entrepreneur to a cynical con man making a fortune by exploiting the pain of his collection of freaks and oddities – this film is far too superficial. Except for a few exceptional songs…
Once upon a time it was every child’s greatest dream to run away and join the circus. Now, circuses are almost extinct, but their stories remain exotic and exciting.
20th Century Fox’s The Greatest Showman is based on the life and achievements of P.T. Barnum – founder possibly the greatest circus there ever was.
The first trailer for this three-ring extravaganza that stars Hugh Jackman as Pt. Barnum is now available to screen. The Greatest Showman opens on December 20th.
Maybe it was just the mood I had going into Baywatch (looking for a laugh or two after a day of packing up to move), but I quite enjoyed it.
The question is, would I feel the same way about the movie without an audience, in my living room? The answer is yes.
The misadventures of the Baywatch team – from grounded leader Mitch to hot dogging Matt; from sympathetic nerd Ronnie to Rommie’s dreamgirl CJ – as they tackle the ‘not quite Bond’ villain Victoria are little short of genius-level silliness (with a dash of drama to keep things from drifting away).
Baywatch is coming to home video on August 15th (digital) and August 29th (Blu-ray and DVD). The Blu-ray and 4K UHD releases include an extended version of the film.
When accounting clerk P.T. Barnum is laid off, he has no idea it will be the luckiest break of his life.
The Greatest Showman is the story of how Barnum went from accounting clerk to the greatest showman in the world – founder of the world’s greatest circus.
The Greatest Showman opens on Christmas Day.
The international trailer for Baywatch is as gloriously silly as the U.S. one. This movie could well be brilliant.
Check it out after the break. Baywatch opens on May 26th.
This may be the funniest trailer I’ve seen this year. If there’s a Baywatch trope we laughed at back in the day, it’s burned in this sucker! (I hope Hasslehoff has seen it…).
Check it out after the break. Baywatch stars Dwayne Johneson and Zac Efron and will be in theaters on May 26, 2017.
Dirty Grandpa finds an earnest corporate lawyer being persuaded to drive his grandpa to Florida the day after his grandma’s funeral – and a week before his own wedding.
If the movie’s title, TV spots and online trailers haven’t made it clear, Dirty Grandpa is a loud, crazy, vulgar farce that attempts to mix crudity with heart. That it mostly succeeds is something of a surprise.
Robert De Niro and Zac Efron? Playing foul-mouthed grandpa and straight-laced lawyer grandson?
Sure. Why not?
Needless to say, they’re on the road as Jason Kelly (Efron) is tricked into driving his grandfather, Dick (De Niro) to Daytona for spring break. What could possibly go right?

We Are Your Friends is a rags to (almost) riches tale of a young DJ who stumbles into the mentorship of a once great DJ and falls in love with his girlfriend – all while trying to maintain a loyalty to a very Entourage-ish group of far less cool friends.
Despite hitting many of the notes we’ve seen in other movies, WAYF works because it comes from a genuinely heartfelt and sincere place – and the cast commits to that.
Cole is an aspiring DJ looking for that one track that will propel him to EDM immortality and make it possible for him to never work another day job again.
When an older DJ takes him under his wing, he begins to reach his potential but there are complications – his mentor’s girlfriend seems to like him better; his friends feel like he’s abandoning them.
We Are Your Friends is that story. Check out the highly danceable trailer after the jump. We Are Your Friends opens on August 28th.
