Awards Season is in second gear and there doesn’t seem to be a night or afternoon that goes by without some event or special screening.  This past week alone Warner Bros.’ brought out the kids from “It” for a deserved “don…

Against all odds, the Terminator franchise is being kept alive thanks to producer James Cameron. The crippled sci-fi film series now has a home at 20th Century Fox, and Cameron is hoping to spark the beginning of a new Terminator trilogy, complete with original stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton …

I haven’t thought about actor/comedian Tom Green or his 2001 absurdist comedy Freddy Got Fingered since we wrote this article in March of 2016 about how a man was arrested after not returning his VHS rental of it after 14 years. If you told me that Green had a conspiracy theory about …

There’s quite a push and pull when it comes to the hesitant hopefulness regarding the sequel to the largely adored “The Incredibles.” Both one of the best animated films and best superhero films of the 21st century, with a voice cast …

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little …

“You have powers!” Disney has released the very first teaser trailer for Pixar’s The Incredibles 2, or now titled simply Incredibles 2 (drop the “the”). This teaser isn’t that much, but it is officially something, since we’ve all been (im)patiently waiting 13 years for them to make this sequel. Brad Bird directs once again, and the plot synopsis released by Disney only states that it’s about Bob navigating “the day-to-day heroics of ‘normal’ life”, allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, “whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad’s surprise.” Which is pretty much what this trailer shows. Craig T. Nelson is back as the voice of Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. I’m excited to see some actual footage and find out what this sequel is going to really be about, because I’m intrigued after waiting all these years already. Here’s the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Brad Bird’s Incredibles 2, direct from Disney’s YouTube: In Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles …

“If anyone needs a vacation… it’s Drac!” Sony has unveiled the first trailer for the animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, again directed by the animation mastermind Genndy Tartakovsky. By now you should know what to expect with this series, considering we’re about to see the third one next year. Hotel Transylvania 3 brings back the “Drac Pack” and his family/squad, this time going on a summer vacation cruise. Apparently he falls for the “intriguing-yet-dangerous” captain of the ship, causing problems of course. This once again featuring the voices of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, and Genndy Tartakovsky. I’m a fan of Tartakovsky so I want to be into these, but I don’t think I’ve watched any, and I don’t know if I want to watch them. Something just tells me no, not for me. But – enjoy it anyway. First two trailers for Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, on YouTube: Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage …
