If you haven’t been paying attention: Leslie Jones endured a barrage of disgusting racist and misogynist attacks that ultimately forced her to take a leave of absence from Twitter. The culprits? The very vocal contingency of Ghostbusters fans (aka Ghostbros) who have been decrying Paul Feig’s reboot because it features an all-female cast. Original Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd has come out in support of Jones, and he’s got some seriously harsh words for all the haters.
In some ways, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a higher-end version of James Franco but occasionally you have to wonder if we’ve allowed him to take himself a little too seriously. Take the latest trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden, for instance, which A.) Reminds you that this is a movie that is still coming out soon, and B.) Features one of the most baffling prestige-acting accents in recent memory.
If you’re looking for something to fill the Game of Thrones-shaped void in your life, there are plenty of new viewing options coming to HBO NOW in August, including two Oscar-nominated dramas and the finale of The Night Of — which is as good a reminder as any to catch up on HBO’s latest acclaimed series. Next month also brings a solid lineup of great films, including The Aviator, Scarface and One Hour Photo, among others.
It’s that time again: Amazon has announced the newest streaming additions coming to Prime Instant Video in August, giving you yet another excuse to procrastinate as you endlessly browse Netflix, Amazon, HBO NOW, et al. for something to watch — before ultimately realizing it’s been two hours and you might as well just watch the third season of Parks and Rec AGAIN. But Amazon will make it easier for you next month, with highlights including recent faves like Inside Llewyn Davis, Blue Ruin and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
Paramount has released the fourth and final trailer for Star Trek Beyond ahead of the film’s July 22 release, and if early word is to be believed (and we think it is), you have every reason to be optimistic about the new sequel. Shorter, punchier and more action-packed than the first three previews, the latest and last trailer may be the best of the bunch, and if nothing else, it looks like Justin Lin was definitely the right pick to replace J.J. Abrams in the director’s chair.
Well this is certainly unexpected. Earlier today, we learned that Star Trek Beyond will reveal that John Cho’s Sulu is gay, a move partially intended to honor the legacy of George Takei, the actor who originated the iconic role in the classic television series and who himself came out as gay in 2005. You’d think that Takei of all people would be thrilled by the decision, but that’s not exactly the case.
Today brings news that San Diego Comic-Con will play host to a special panel to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Aliens, James Cameron’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic. Cameron himself will be in attendance along with Sigourney Weaver, who is still talking up Neill Blomkamp’s new Alien sequel despite reports that the project had been delayed due to Scott’s own Alien prequel plans.
It took 20 years for Roland Emmerich to deliver a sequel to Independence Day, a film that’s largely responsible for the modern summer blockbuster season. Unfortunately, it looks like most audiences didn’t think it was worth the wait. As predicted in recent weeks, Resurgence crash-landed in theaters with an underwhelming opening weekend that was no match for Pixar’s Finding Dory.
James Wan has firmly established himself as a modern master of horror with films like Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring, and though the filmmaker’s latest project isn’t one he directed himself, he is responsible for bringing it to the big screen. Wan produced Lights Out, and if the newest trailer for the upcoming horror flick is to be believed, you’re in for some serious scares.
Moonfall sounds like it could be the title of a new James Bond movie, like a combo between Moonraker and Skyfall, which — to be honest — sounds kind of great. Instead, it’s the title of Roland Emmerich’s next disaster epic, in which the director / sworn enemy of famous landmarks will once again try to destroy Earth, this time by hitting it with the moon.
Over the past week we’ve seen lots of new stuff from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, including photos, character details, more photos, info on those highly-publicized reshoots, some other photos, and oh, hey, what do we have here? It’s more photos! We have six images from the upcoming Star Wars anthology film along with more details about the characters, including Mon Mothma — who will have a bigger role than we previously assumed.
The cast of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters are set to appear on The Graham Norton Show on June 23, but a couple of clips from their delightful episode have popped up online, including one in which Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy — at Feig’s urging — perform their “folk lady” version of the classic theme song. As an added bonus, their sharply-dressed director gets slimed, straight-up Nickelodeon style.
