Whether or not Quentin Tarantino is telling us the truth about his retirement he’s been pondering after his tenth film remains to be seen, but if it is true, we’re going to have to enjoy every last minute of it because he has just announced what his ninth film will be about.

For his “penultimate” film, Tarantino has decided that it will focus on the Manson family murders. Quite a subject, and one that will probably have another unique take. Check out more about the film, below.

Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th

A major studio changing a scheduled release is common practice within the industry. But when it comes to pulling a major tentpole sequel off the schedule, that is something to worry about.

A new report confirms Paramount has pulled World War Z 2 and Friday the 13th of their scheduled release, with the latter later reported to be shut down completely. Both films were a part of Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes production company. However, they have announced a release date for Darren Aronofsky‘s mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence.

Passengers Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt

Sony Pictures Entertainment has released an official trailer for Passengers, an upcoming sci-fi epic starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) and Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World).

The movie is set on a giant space ship which is transporting humans to a new home many year away. To make it there alive, everyone is suspended in sleep. But two of the ship’s occupants wake up early. Far too early. Also starring is Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex, Frost/Nixon) along with Oscar nominees Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, What’s Love Got to Do with It) and Andy Garcia (The Godfather Part III, Ocean’s Eleven).

You can read an official synopsis for Passengers and check out the official trailer below.

DF-08349_08350_R Jennifer Lawrence as Raven / Mystique and Evan Peters as Peter / Quicksilver in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE.

X-Men: Apocalypse
Director: Bryan Singer
Screenwriter: Simon Kinberg
Cast: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Hugh Jackman
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 147 Minutes
Release Date: May 27, 2016

“Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.”

If there’s one thing director Bryan Singer achieves with X-Men: Apocalypse, it’s channeling the excess and indulgence of the 1980s. The ninth installment in the X-Men series has too much of everything, including thinly written characters, stale end-of-the-world scenarios, and overblown CGI annihilation.

Directed by Bryan Singer (who has directed four of the six X-Men films), the film stars James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawerence as the mutant superheroes who must lead the gifted young students into battle against the titular villain (Oscar Isaac), who some claim to be a god.

Katniss along with her fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellarck (Josh Hutcherson) come out as victors but also sparking a revolution amongst the impoverished districts. In order to snuff out that spark, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) holds the Third Quarter Quell, in which previous winners of the Hunger Games have to battle amongst each other once more.

Honest Trailer Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2

Last week, the gang at Screen Junkies did an Honest Trailer for Insurgent, the second film of the Divergent series. Now they return to finish the biggest YA series ever, by doing the “4th film in the Hunger Games trilogy” (let that marinate for a second). You liked the first one, and loved the second one, but were completely bored out of your mind by the hella-depressing 2-hour prologue to the even more depressing 2+ hour finale… so strap in for the final Honest Trailer, for this series of films… even narrator Jon Bailey apologizes for the repetitiveness of his jokes.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

X-Men Apocalypse

The world needs the X-Men, again. Fox has just released the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Though the title heroes of Marvel have faced many mutant and human threats before, they have never faced one as powerful as the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac). Now, after awakening from a great slumber, Apocalypse has gained the powers of a god, and recruits Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and three other powerful mutants to be his Horseman to help him cleanse the Earth of humans.

So it’s up to Professor Xavier’s (James McAvoy) students to stop them from succeeding. Foes are now allies and former friends believe in the gospel according to Apocalypse. Check out the full trailer below.

Oscars 2016: Predictions For The Acting Awards Categories

Oscars Image

On Sunday night, Hollywood will get together for its biggest party of the year, the 88th Annual Academy Awards, otherwise known as the Oscars. The night promises laughs, shocks, and plenty of controversy as for the second straight year all 20 acting nominees are white. With comedian Chris Rock hosting, expect some jabs directed at the Academy.

I love the Oscars, even when I hate them. Movies are my passion and the biggest night in movies has become a holiday akin to the Super Bowl. Every year, I try earnestly to see all the films nominated for top honors, and I went over and beyond this year. Not only did I watch all 8 nominated films, but I watched 19 of the 20 of the ranked Oscar performances (sorry Charlotte Rampling). Since this is my first of several Oscars 2016 columns to come, I thought it best to start in the same way the big show begins… no sorry, not with a huge musical number. Nearly every year, they open the awards distribution with a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Last year, JK Simmons accepted his trophy for playing the deliciously malicious orchestra leader in Best Pic nominee Whiplash. Simmons, much more resigned than his ferocious role as Fletcher, encouraged everyone to call their moms.

So without further ado, let’s introduce the Best Supporting Actor and Actress nominees, and then move on to the Best Actor and Actress nominees. I’ll tell you who will likely will win… but more importantly, who I think should win.
