The aisles of Toy Fair are filled with dolls of all shapes and sizes that can eat, cry, talk, and even require a diaper change.

Silicon Valley returns for season four on April 23rd. Former Pied Piper CEO, Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch), is still a nervous wreck. After all these seasons, he’s probably been nervous for good reason. A lot goes wrong for Richard on this show.

Armie Hammer is almost performing a one-man show in Mine. The Man from U.N.CL.E. star isn’t alone in Fabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro‘s thriller, but he spends much of it on his own in the frame, with one foot resting not-so-comfortably on a landmine in the desert. To stay alive, he’ll have to survive the next 52 hours by […] The post ‘Mine’ Trailer: Armie […]

Jon Favreau‘s remake of The Jungle Book utilized an all-star cast of recognizable names lending their recognizable voices to an ensemble of recognizable animals, so it makes sense that his upcoming remake of The Lion King will follow a similar template.

There are many ways that Logan differentiates itself from most superhero movies, and one of them is its lack of a credits scene. There’s no mid-credits stinger, no special prize for audiences patient enough to sit through to the very end — the film’s just over when it’s over. Or at least that was the word […] The post Did Fox Just Add a Secret Post-Credits S […]
Look, Isolation: you kind-of, sort-of had me with “Stephen Lang is a modern day pirate and a pervert who holds a guy hostage with a corkscrew in one scene.” It’s a shame that the rest of the trailer for this upcoming thriller, which is being dumped direct to DVD and VOD in April, looks so bland. So […] The post ‘Isolation’ Trailer: Because ‘Avatar,’ ‘Prison […]
