Earlier today, we got an update on the status of Top Gun 2, and now we've got more news about the long-awaited sequel. Here's what we know so far: Is it really happening?  According to Tom Cruise, "definitely." He believes they'll begin shooting next year.  Who's going to direct? Sadly, original Top Gun helmer Tony Scott is no longer with us, so Paramount is reportedly eyeing Joseph Kosinski for the job, according to Variety. What makes him qualified? Kosinski's first two movies are good indicators that he's right for Top Gun 2.

When it was first announced two years ago, Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets immediately reminded us of Besson's own The Fifth Element. It's based on a French graphic novel that follows two time travel agents who go on fantastical adventures. Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne were cast as the time travel agents  Amazingly, the first trailer, released last November, lived up to our expectations, resembling The Fifth Element on steroids, a wildly imaginative sci-fi adventure full of colorful creatures, characters and worlds. The cast includes Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock, Kris Wu and Rihanna, who takes on several different personas in the movie. The second trailer showcased the amazingly varied worlds in which the...

Today is National Brother's Day, which just so happens to be the perfect day to announce when The Boss Baby is coming home. If you're unfamiliar with the new movie from the creator of the Madagascar series, it's not just a movie about a well dressed newborn with the voice of Alec Baldwin and the mind of Baldwin's character from Glengarry Glen Ross. It's also a wonderful movie about brotherly love and the first born in a family learning to share their parents with somebody else. It's funny, it's got some incredible animation in it, and, most importantly, it's a great family movie. And if you missed it in theaters, we're happy to reveal that The Boss Baby will hit Digital HD (including FandangoNOW) on July 4, with a special edition Blu-ray...

Once upon a time, Mel Brooks was a mighty force in comic cinema. Beginning with The Producers in 1967, he directed a string of very funny movies, reaching an early crescendo with Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, both released in 1974. The movies that followed -- Silent Movie, High Anxiety and History of the World: Part 1, may have been a step down in consistency and popularity, even though they were still hilarious. In 1987, he faced his toughest challenge yet, making fun of popular sci-fi movies (mostly the original Star Wars trilogy) in Spaceballs. The intentionally low-budget look and feel of the movie was, of course, part of the joke (watch the clip above), and Brooks was spot-on with much of the humor, which ridiculed the costumes, the portentous dialogue, silly...
