We'd better start appreciating the Planet of the Apes films, because all good things come to an end. And if the franchise keeps going in the direction it's in, then I don't want another reboot to happen. The first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes has finally arrived, and it does more than just tease the inevitable war between man and ape, it brings us straight to the battlefront.
Check out the first trailer for the film here below. [...]

The X-Men film franchise may look bleak now, but that hasn't stopped Fox from moving forward with its lucrative Marvel titles. Rumor is that they are prepping to shoot New Mutants as early as next year in Montreal, where they previously shot X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse. There's also the release of Logan, which apparently got rave reviews today when the studio screened the first act of the film to a select group of journalists. Fans can also rest easy knowing that Deadpool 2 is finally moving forward now that the Tim Miller controversy is behind them.
We know that David Leitch (co-director of John Wick) will helm the sequel, and it seems that Ryan Reynolds, who plays the title character, couldn't be more excited that the filmmaker is behind the lens [...]

"Party like your job depends on it."
Directed by Will Speck and Josh Gordon (Blades of Glory, The Switch), Office Christmas Party is like its star, T.J. Miller: loud, obnoxious, occasionally funny, and best when loaded on drugs and alcohol.

Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for South Park: The Fractured But Whole. The latest trailer for the video game comes just as the 20th season of the hit animated TV comedy comes to a close.

When if comes to AMC's The Walking Dead and HBO's Game of Thrones, death is just a normal part of everyday life. Simply put the shows kill off lots and lots and lots of people, living and undead.
Knowing this, Reddit user nachorykaart decided to really dive into just how many deaths have happened on the two series. They went back and counted all of the deaths that have occurred, and broke it down into categories: Main Character Deaths, Side Character Deaths, Background Character Deaths, Non-Human Character Deaths, and finally Total Character Deaths and Death Percentages.
Which show do you think has more deaths? Find out in the infographic below! [...]

Back in 1986 Frank Oz, director of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, What About Bob?, Bowfinger, The Score, and Death at a Funeral; as well as the voice actor behind Yoda, Muppets Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and Animal; and Grover, Bert, and Cookie Monster on Sesame Street among others, directed Little Shop of Horrors. The movie was based on the off-Broadway musical of the same name from Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, which was itself based on the low-budget 1960 Roger Corman movie The Little Shop of Horrors.
Now a new remake of the title is in development at Warner Brothers, and they've found a director for the project. It's being reported that Greg Berlanti will direct the remake, from a screenplay written by Matthew Robinson. [...]

La La Land
Director: Damien Chazelle
Screenwriter: Damien Chazelle
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, J. K. Simmons
Distributor: Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13 | 128 minutes
Release Date: December 9, 2016
There's really no simple way to put this, but La La Land is one of those rare, unforgettable movie going experiences that will be talked about for years to come. And that doesn't even sum up how good it is. Damien Chazelle's follow-up to Whiplash reminds us of why we go to the movies, and believe me, this is a movie that needs to be seen in a theater.
The film pays homage to the days of Hollywood where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers graced the screen with beautiful songs and elegant dances. But it is also a love letter to the luster and sparkle of Los Angeles, which attracts the hopeless romantics and the dreamers hoping to find love and reach for the stars, all the while learning that the city can also be crushing and unforgiving. In the end, Chazelle's latest film is a true work of art that cannot be missed. Check out the full review below. [...]

The fact that Seth Gordon is behind the lens for Baywatch pretty much tells us that the film reboot will go for a more comedic slant than its cheesy drama TV counterpart. And the first trailer for the film pretty much proves that.
Paramount has released the first trailer for Baywatch, starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Jon Bass, Rob Huebel, and Hannibal Buress. Clearly, the reboot wants to be something else or at least mimic what made the 21 Jump Street films so successful. Find out if it meets your expectations by watching the trailer below. [...]

What’s better than a zombie novel? How about a zombie novel about an undead, foul-mouthed, junkie private eye, his homunculus sidekick, Oswald, and their outlandish adventures through the otherworldly Pandemonium?

The biggest superhero movie news bit to come out of last weekend was the release of the first trailer for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While the sequel is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it doesn't have an actual connection to the main Marvel heroes considering the cosmic distance between the two.
Now Gunn is elaborating on how his film will remain distant from what is going on in the MCU. And in other Guardians Vol. 2 news, Vin Diesel is doing some extra hyping by addressing a fight possible fight between Hulk and Groot, and a maybe spinoff with Rocket and Groot. Check out more on these stories below. [...]

Universal Pictures has released the second official trailer to Fifty Shades Darker starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The film is a sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which ended awkwardly, I might add. However, devoted fans knew that the story wasn't over, with this being a trilogy.
In the new trailer for the sequel, we see the two rekindle that relationship that involves kinky PDA, ghosts from Christian's past, and other people who will complicate their relationship. Because what's a good soapy drama without that. Check out the full trailer below. [...]

When word came that Spider-Man would be shared by Sony and Marvel, every Marvel fan nearly dropped to their knees.

Roald Dahl is one of the greatest children's book authors of all time, and the films made of his stories are usually very good to all-time classics. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was written by Dahl himself back in 1971, and before the bizarre Tim Burton big screen adaptation starring Johnny Depp, there was the beloved Gene Wilder version, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Since then we’ve gotten excellent work in films like The Witches, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach. Take the finest child author and combine him with the greatest living director, Steven Spielberg, and you get a the potential for a classic in the making: Disney’s The BFG… Big Friendly Giant [...]

Being able to join up with friends and other fans of The Elder Scrolls series to run around the world of Tamriel in The Elder Scrolls Online is lots of fun. For most, anyway. That said, sometimes you just need a nice, quiet place to escape the many other players and do private stuff, like counting how many loaves of bread and stews you've collected on your adventures!
But the game doesn't really have that. It does have places you can go to get away from other players, but nowhere to call your very own. That's about to change. Soon a free update to the game will introduce housing, which will allow you to buy your own living spaces and even go crazy decorating them to make them unique.
You can get full details on how all of this will work and see a video of the housing update in action below. [...]

Spectral ended up being pulled from the originally scheduled release, however, and distribution was eventually acquired by Netflix. A new trailer for the movie has been released online ahead of its release in a couple of days on the streaming service, and you can check it out below. [...]
