‘Flatliners’ Trailer: You Haven’t Lived Until You’ve Died

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from movies, it’s not to experiment with death. But that won’t stop one group of young folks from engaging in their fun new pastime of competitive dying. Flatliners, a remake of Joel Schumacher’s 1990 cult film, posits that dying for a couple of minutes gives these kids a new appreciation for the lives they have, until their deaths start to catch up with them. Never play with forces you can’t fully control.

Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves Reuniting for Rom-Com ‘Destination Wedding’

Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder are kind of the alt version of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet: you know they’re not together, but they’ve appeared as co-stars often enough that you kinda ship them, just a little bit. If that’s you, good news: Reeves and Ryder, last seen together in Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly, are reuniting once again for romantic comedy Destination Wedding.

A New Study Finds White Men Still Talk the Most in Movies

The goal with any society is to get better at stuff, to learn from mistakes and evolve, gradually, over time, to become the best version of itself. But for all the woke baes and social justice awareness out there, it looks like movies still have a long way to go. A new study has found that white men still get the most dialogue in today’s cinema, and women and minorities are still often relegated to stereotypical, nonessential roles.

‘Avatar’ Sequels Begin VFX Production, With an Assist From ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’

The next of James Cameron’s Avatar sequels are officially off and rolling, with visual effects production in full swing today at the Oscar-winning Weta Digital in New Zealand. Cameron changed the game for movies that heavily feature visual effects and performance capture, paving the way for films like Luc Besson’s Valerian and the new Planet of the Apes trilogy. Funny enough, Weta is getting an assist this time around from motion capture tech used in War for the Planet of the Apes.

The ‘It’ Movie’s Runtime Is Way Longer Than ‘The Dark Tower’

Something fishy is going on with the two Stephen King movies coming out this year. At least, their runtimes aren’t exactly what you’d expect. It was recently revealed that The Dark Tower clocks in at a lean 95 minutes long, and now we’re hearing that Andres Muschietti’s It is considerably longer than two hours: approximately 135 minutes.

Not Even Joe Manganiello Can Say If He’s Still Playing Deathstroke in ‘The Batman’

With Warner Bros. The Batman in a constant state of flux, everything seems up in the air. The movie had been shedding directors like a white cat on a black couch — Ben Affleck exited the director’s chair a while back, and recently it’s looked as if he might not return to the role of Bruce Wayne after Justice League wraps. He assured everyone at Comic Con that he has every intention of staying, but who really knows? Matt Reeves seems secure in his role as director, for now, but it also looks like Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke might be in question.

It’s a big deal when you pass a follower milestone on social media. You feel like, finally, you’re being HEARD, you’re being SEEN, and, naturally, it warrants some kind of celebratory post to commemorate the day.

Charlie Sheen’s ‘9/11’ Trailer Is… Well, It’s Here

It was kind of inevitable that noted 9/11 truther Charlie Sheen would make a movie about that day, but it’s a little surprising that not only Gina Gershon, but Whoopi Goldberg would both agree to star in it. Not surprising: the trailer for Sheen’s 9/11 is shockingly, impressively bad.

‘The Incredibles 2’ Begins Moments After the Original Ends (Yes, With the Underminer)

The Incredibles 2 is coming, finally, after thirteen long, arduous years of waiting, and while we don’t know much about the actual plot, we do know that it’ll start right where the first movie left off. If you recall, after the Parr family defeats angsty supervillain Syndrome and his marauding Omnidroid, they have a few months of normalcy before another baddie enters the fray. The Underminer, voiced by Jon Ratzenberger, explodes out of the ground at the controls of a massive drilling machine, and the final shot of the movie is the Parrs tensing up for a fight.
