If you like action and unrealistic plots, then Hobbs & Shaw is the perfect movie for you. The Fast and Furious spinoff stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw. It also stars Idris Elba, who is playing black Superman. Seriously.
This movie looks absolutely ridiculous in every way possible, but it also looks really entertaining. Like get yourself some popcorn and completely lose yourself inside the theater.
It definitely looks like a theater-only film. No way I’d watch this on my 32-inch Samsung.
We don’t really need to tell you about the plot of this movie because it doesn’t matter. It comes second to the action, and this trailer has a lot of action.
Check it out below. Hobbs & Shaw will hit theaters August 2, 2019.

Are you ready for another reboot? YOU BETTER BE, ‘CAUSE CHUCKY IS COMING FOR YOU!
Orion released a new trailer for the upcoming reboot of the Child’s Play slasher film franchise. In this trailer, we finally hear Chucky’s voice, which is a pretty big deal because Star Wars legend Mark Hamill is voicing the character.
In addition to Hamill, this movie also stars Aubrey Plaza (who plays a mother…we getting old!), Gabriel Bateman and Brian Tyree Henry.
A previously released trailer revealed that Chucky is a smart-toy of sorts called the Buddi doll in the re-imagining, and this latest clip shows just how dangerous the internet of things can be. Long gone are the days of the Satanic panic, when Chucky was possessed by a serial killer thanks to voodoo magic. Now, Orion Pictures are capitalizing on the fear that the technology linking our ever-more-connected world will turn against us.
Child’s Play will hit theaters June 21, 2019. Check out the latest trailer below…

After the massive success of the Transformers spinoff ‘Bumblebee‘, Travis Knight has signed a deal with Warner Bros. to direct the film adaptation of the ’70s tv show, The Six Million Dollar Man.
This adaptation will be titled ‘The Six Billion Dollar Man‘ and will star Mark Wahlberg.
The Six Million Dollar Man is about a former astronaut, Colonel Steve Austin, portrayed by Lee Majors. Majors’ character, employed as a secret agent, had superhuman strength due to bionic implants. The series ran for five seasons on ABC between 1973 and 1978, and was based on Martin Caidin’s novel ‘Cyborg.’
Warner Bros. bought the rights to the film in late 2017 from the Weinstein Company after the studio started to crumble following the sexual assault scandal.
As mentioned above, Knight is riding high after directing Bumblebee, which was not only loved by the general audience, but also by critics. It scored a surprising 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and made over $460 million worldwide against a budget of $135 million.
No word on a potential release date for Six Billion Dollar Man, but we will keep you posted.
2019 is a big year for Sophie Turner. It marks the end of a long and often mentally exhausting chapter of her life. As you all know, Game of Thrones is currently airing its final season, and now 20th Century Fox is releasing what is likely the final installment in their X-Men franchise.
Turner plays major roles in both productions, and she’s already announced that she is now taking a break from acting to focus on her mental health.
But before the break officially starts, she still has promotional duties for the upcoming, X-Men: Dark Phoenix film. The studio released the final trailer for the movie, which is set to be released on June 7, 2019.
The film is adapting the classic Dark Phoenix storyline, first published in the 1980s, in which mutant Jean Grey is struck by a solar flare and transformed, returning to earth as the Phoenix, a being of pure thought. We’ve seen a couple of trailers for the film that show off this transformation for the film’s titular character (played by Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner) and how the X-Men struggle to contain her powers.
Fans appear to be super excited for this final installment, and for good reason, this trailer looks pretty dope.

Okay, so maybe not everything in Hollywood is moving at a rapid pace. We just got done marveling at how quickly Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Hustlers‘ film is moving, but now we must show you the opposite side of Hollywood. The incredibly slow and tedious side.
We knew there was going to be a ‘Minecraft‘ movie months ago when it was announced that the film was going to be written and directed by Peter Sollett, the filmmaker behind Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
For the past few months, there had been silence coming from the creators of Minecraft on the movie, but now they are sharing more information.
It turns out that making a live-action, full-length feature film is really complicated! Since we’re a game developer first, making a movie will be new and very exciting. And while the movie has to be different from the game (otherwise, you’d be in for an infinite movie in very low resolution) one thing will definitely be the same.
We want to make the movie — just as we make the game — for you. We’re inspired by countless things, but none as much as the incredible stuff our community creates in ‘Minecraft’ every day.
Will Minecraft still be as popular in three years? It seems like a bit of a risk to schedule something so far in advance, although, Minecraft doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. It’s still one of the most popular games out there. As of 2018, there were over 91 million people playing the game monthly. That’s a lot of people.
Allison Williams starred in the horror/thriller ‘Get Out‘ back in 2017 and the movie was one of the biggest hits of the year.
Now she’s returning to the horror space in 2019 with The Perfection. The horror flick, directed by Richard Shepard, released its first trailer this week, and it’s pretty f**king creepy.
We don’t know a lot about this movie. The trailer does a good job of building suspense without giving much away. We do know there is something going on causing bugs to crawl out of people’s skin, and that’s enough to make us want to look away.
In addition to Williams, The Perfection stars Logan Browning and Alaina Huffman.
The movie premiered at Fantastic Fest last year and received mostly positive reviews from critics. It’s scheduled to premiere on Netflix May 24, 2019.

After bringing in over $50 million during its opening weekend, ‘Shazam!” once again topped the box office during its second weekend by bringing in $25.1 million. In total, the movie has made over $220 million worldwide, which is outstanding because it was made for just $90 million.
And even though Shazam has been a small success story, the box office is down overall. Domestic revenue to date is at its lowest level since 2013.
‘Hellboy‘ certainly didn’t help the numbers. The movie took in just $12 million during its opening weekend. That’s a pretty terrible opening.
Hellboy took $50 million to make and will struggle to make even that back. Especially when you consider it has just one more weekend to itself before Avengers: Endgamecausally strolls in.
Hellboy suffered from poor reviews. It has a 15% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 31% on Metacritic. So yeah, the critics didn’t like it, the general audience didn’t like it, and now the studio is paying for it.
But it’s not all bad news for the box office. Even though 2019 is off to a slow start, the best has yet to come. As mentioned above, Avengers: Endgame hits theaters in just two weeks. And then you still have Lion King, Toy Story 4, Frozen 2, Star Wars, The Secret Life of Pets 2, Men in Black, Jumanji 3, and much more.
The future is here. Well, almost. Disney announced on Thursday that their Disney+ video streaming service will launch on November 12, 2019. It will cost $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year, which is significantly cheaper than Netflix’s standard $12.99 a month plan.
Disney also revealed what the interface will look like on your screen…
This streaming service is going to be stacked. All Star Wars films will be added within a year, an exclusive live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp will be added, Phineas & Ferb movie, every episode of The Simpsons, Marvel movies, Disney animated films, Pixar shorts, a spinoff tv series of the Monsters Inc. franchise, and so much more.
It’s going to change the game, folks. And much like Netflix, the cost per month will likely go up slowly. They’ll get people in with the $6.99 price, and then gradually increase throughout the years.
I hate to say that I’m excited for this, ’cause Disney is taking over Hollywood, but I can’t help it! I AM EXCITED FOR THIS!
Jon Stewart continues to load up the cast for his upcoming political comedy movie, Irresistible. He already has the incredibly talented Mackenzie Davis, Steve Carell, Rose Byrne and Chris Cooper, and now he’s adding Topher Grace.
As most of you know, Grace has been on a hot streak recently. He starred in the award-winning film BlacKkKlansman last year, Under the Silver Lake, and he had a small role in Interstellar. He’s slowly making people forget about his days on That ’70s Show.
No word on how important his role will be in this movie, but we know Carell will have a starring role…
Carell is portraying a Democratic political consultant who helps a retired ex-Marine colonel, played by Cooper, run for mayor in a small Wisconsin town. Byrne will play Carell’s Republican counterpart and Davis will play the daughter of Cooper’s character. Grace’s role is being kept under wraps.
Stewart wrote and will direct this film. Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment will produce, which is a good sign because they seem to only produce award-winning films.
No word on a release date, but we will keep you posted.
