Update: Hop to the bottom of this post for the full Deadpool trailer. The trailer for a trailer has become the lamest trend in movie marketing. Nobody wants to see a 15 second clip that exists just to tease when you're going to be able to watch a 90 second clip. That said, Deadpool has just dropped the mic on trailers for trailers. If anyone is going to do one from here on out, it has to be better than this. And good luck, because it's not going to be easy to top. The full trailer will be online tomorrow after a broadcast-safe version of it premieres on Conan O'Brien's late night show tonight, but to whet your appetite, here's star Ryan Reynolds once again proving how this Deadpool is going to be very, very different from the Deadpool who showed up in X-Men...

There's a Scream TV series, and if you're like most people I mention the show to you were either completely unaware of this or you knew about it and wrote it off without ever watching it. But you should, because it's kind of fantastic. It takes everything great from Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson's original slasher and repurposes it for a new, more socially connected generation. And while I realize that sounds like a disaster scenario where dumb teens are getting killed because they're too busy Instagramming selfies or something, it all works surprisingly well. Here's why.   First, no, it doesn't have anything to do with the original Scream. This isn't a continuation of the story of the Woodsboro massacres. The kids in it aren't the...

If you've seen the new Mission: Impossible movie, you get a feeling there ain't much Tom Cruise won't do.  He'll hang from the wing of an airplane as it takes off, and then learn how to hold his breath underwater for six minutes straight (which is insane when you think about it for more than a second). He can drive cars backwards down flights of stairs and ride motorcycles at upwards of 200mph.  But when I sat down with writer-director Chris McQuarrie to talk about Rogue Nation, I learned there was one particular scene he had to convince Cruise -- and the studio -- to do: the opera house sequence. Believe it or not, that was the only time anybody hesitated," McQuarrie told me in an interview for Fandango. "Nobody hesitated about the...

New Indie One of 2015’s most talked-about new releases, Ex Machina (Lionsgate) revels in the kind of five-minutes-in-the-future science fiction that prompts spirited discussions, not just for the extraordinary filmmaking of writer-director Alex Garland but also for its provocative subject matter regarding artificial intelligence and its ongoing relationship with mankind. Tech drone Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is thrilled to get an invitation to the high-tech home of the company’s mysterious CEO (Oscar Isaac), only to discover that the boss wants Caleb to test out a brand-new android (Alicia Vikander) who may or may not be more than the sum of her programming. A captivating exploration of technology and of evolving gender roles, Ex Machina will have you rethinking how much...

Looking to feed off the success of Kevin Smith's indie sensation Clerks, a pilot was ordered in the mid-'90s for a more sanitized TV show featuring the same main characters (Dante and Randal), a mini-mart setting and a laugh track. The show was produced without the involvement of Smith -- a fact that becomes more evident after you realize Jay and Silent Bob are nowhere to be found in this version -- and the humor, while similar to the movie at times (like how Randal continues to harass customers), is way too tame to appeal to hardcore fans of the film. Check out the full pilot below. Eventually Smith took hold of his brand and produced his own offshoots of Clerks, including a comic shop called Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash, as well as comic books, animated...

X-Men: Apocalypse: Alexandra Shipp appears as the mutant known as Storm in a new image shared by director Bryan Singer from behind the scenes of X-Men: Apocalypse. Note that in the lower part of the image, the actress is merged with "CG-created backgrounds and settings in real time," using technology known as simulcan. The movie is heading to theaters on May 27, 2016. [Collider]   Jurassic World 2: Writer/director Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World, above with Chri Pratt) began dropping hints about where the sequel might go even before it was officially confirmed recently. He suggested: "What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?" He also hinted that a sequel would not be "just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing...
