The Wedding Ringer red band trailer with twitter critics and more cursing For the most part January is the month where some movies get a release that goes unnoticed. It’s the calendar equivalent of saying "look over there!" and when audiences don’t pay attention, January gets away with some questionable films. Before you ask, that analogy made perfect sense in my head so I’m sticking with it. One movie coming out wants to defy the...
 
Jason and Ivan Reitman team up for I Would Only Rob Banks For My Family Jason Reitman is already gearing up his next project and it could signal a return to form for the writer/director/producer. While I enjoyed LABOR DAY and MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN on a certain "that wasn’t that bad" level, they didn’t perform well with critics and audiences didn’t seem to want to find them leaving Reitman with back to back casualties....

Shawn Levy to direct Melissa McCarthy in a comedy version of Tinkerbell Melissa McCarthy is the female version of Kevin Hart: either you love her or you really, really f*cking hate her. Aside from a break-out supporting role in BRIDESMAIDS, McCarthy has managed to essentially play the same role over and over again in movies like THE HEAT and TAMMY. After a while, the schtick gets old and then you enter the Adam Sandler/Jim Carrey realm of safe, family films. On that note,...
 
Josh Boone says his adaptation of The Stand will be at least four movies Stephen King's THE STAND is a big ass book. The uncut edition comes in at over a thousand pages and has already spawned a six hour mini-series and a thirty-one issue comic book. Obviously, whittling down such a story into a two hour film was never going to happen, but now it looks like it may need more than two films to tell the entire tale. In an appearance on Kevin Smith's podcast Hollywood Babble-On, THE......

Review: The Mule PLOT: A none-too-bright television repairman gets caught up in a scheme to smuggle drugs into Australia from Thailand - the old "drug mule" way. When he's caught by authorities who want what's inside of him to come out, he has to contain himself for as long as humanely possible.

Evan Rachel Wood and Darren Criss star in this iteration of BIG where a woman wishes to be older. Check out...
