Fox News Logo

In one of the more shocking developments, Annapurna Pictures has dropped their untitled Fox News movie just days before production was supposed to start.

The film centers on the sexual harassment cover-up that went on inside the right-winged new organization and how exiting anchors like Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) and Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) changed the culture of sexual harassment for the better. More on the report below.

The Spy Who Dumped Me

Spoofing the spy genre isn’t something that is particularly new. But that doesn’t make it any less funny. Especially when you get some great talent like Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis. The two will be paired up in the new spy comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me – get it, it’s a riff on the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me.

Lionsgate has dropped the first trailer for the film. In it, Audrey (Kunis) and Morgan (McKinnon) are two best friends who get wrapped up in an international conspiracy when Audrey finds out that her former boyfriend is actually a spy. Check out the trailer below.

Magic School Bus Rides Again

From beloved children’s books to an educationally delightful PBS show, The Magic School Bus has taken kids on wacky field trips that explore the human body, space, and beyond. Now Netflix is taking the show and giving it a reboot, with The Magic School Bus Rides Again.

For the reboot, Ms. Frizzle (Lily Tomlin) is giving the keys to her younger sister (voiced by Kate McKinnon). Even the theme song is getting revamped from the one any only Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Check out the first trailer for The Magic School Bus Rides Again below.

Dan Aykroyd Blames Director Paul Feig For ‘Ghostbusters’ Costly Reboot

Ghostbusters Stars Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon

Last year, a new all-female reboot of Ghostbusters hit theaters. Though it grossed $229 million worldwide at the box office, that was off of a $144 million production budget. So adding the millions that was put into the marketing campaign, the film was barely a mild success. Thus, there will probably be no sequel. The film was fine, and with the way it ended, there was plenty of stories left to tell. But it all comes down to money, and if there isn’t any, then it isn’t worth it for the studio to take such a risk.

Now one of the Ghostbusters alum believes he knows why the reboot didn’t work. According to Dan Aykroyd, it was director Paul Feig. More on the story, below.

Movie Review: Office Christmas Party

Office Christmas Party
Directed by: Will Speck, Josh Gordon
Written by: Justin Malen, Laura Solon, Dan Mazer
Cast: Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T.J. Miller, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon, Jennifer Aniston, Vanessa Bayer, Rob Corddry, Jamie Chung, Jillian Bell
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 105 Minutes
Release Date: December 9, 2016

“Party like your job depends on it.”

Directed by Will Speck and Josh Gordon (Blades of Glory, The Switch), Office Christmas Party is like its star, T.J. Miller: loud, obnoxious, occasionally funny, and best when loaded on drugs and alcohol.

When Zenotek CEO Carol Vanstone (Jennifer Aniston) tries to close her hard-partying brother’s branch in Chicago, he (Clay Vanstone, played by Miller) and Chief Technical Officer Josh Parker (Jason Bateman) must rally their co-workers and host an epic non-denominational holiday mixer Christmas party to woo potential client Walter Davis (The People v. O.J. Simpson‘s Courtney B. Vance) and close a sale that will save their jobs.

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY header

The holiday season is upon us, and that means it’s time to party and celebrate the end of the year. And what kind of celebration would it be without a Christmas party, especially the kind of party that involves drinking, physical humor, and other unsightly vulgarity? Paramount Pictures has released the latest trailer for Josh Gordon & Will Speck‘s Office Christmas Party, starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T. J. Miller, Jillian Bell, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon and Jennifer Aniston. As you might expect with the cast and the title, this will be the kind of office Christmas party that everyone will be talking about, that is, if they’ll be able to recall it after the amount of alcohol they’ve consumed.

Check out the full trailer below.

Sony’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Braces For Possible $70 Million Loss; Sequel Unlikely

Ghostbusters 2016

It has been an uphill battle for the Sony marketing team ever since the first trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot came out. But when the first box office numbers came out, studio execs were quick to hail the film as a success and said that there would be a sequel without actually confirming that there would be one.

Now there is a sense that they may have jumped the gun a bit as a new report says Sony is possibly going to lose up to $70 million on the movie. More on the story below.

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY header

If it is December, chances are you will probably be invited to a Christmas Party to celebrate Yule Tides and Season’s Greetings. Of course, at these parties there’s bound to be some egg nog with a little alcoholic kick to it, which leads to some sort of drunken shenanigans, dumping one’s feelings over the office crush, and a nice hangover the next morning.

Now, a new comedy called Office Christmas Party will explore all those regrettable themes. The film stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn, and since this is a movie, things get seriously out of hand.

Check out the new trailer below.

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters
Director: Paul Feig
Screenwriter: Paul Feig and Katie Dippold
Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth, Neil Casey
Distributor: Sony Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 116 minutes
Release Date: July 15, 2016

It’s easy to see why a reboot of a film like Ghostbusters could be met with such resistance. But that resistance has to come from the right place, otherwise it will sound like white noise. Now that we live in such a progressive period of time, we are more likely to see changes that would fuel such a resistance, and it’s no surprise that we are seeing that in Paul Feig‘s reboot, Ghostbusters.

The 1984 original film is such a classic film for many of us who have either lived during that time or have watched it on home video and learned of its existence through the two animated series. There is also the 1989 sequel, as well as board games, comic books, and video games, all of it based on the success of the franchise. Until now, there really hasn’t been any changes to the franchise, and as such there will be those who will probably have a strong attachment to the two films they are very familiar with. Which brings me back to the idea of resistance. No matter how you spin it, no matter how great it is, no matter how funny, there will be those who will not welcome this film with open arms. And that is the wrong way to approach it. The new Ghostbusters film, while flawed, is funny — very funny. It is one of those rare reboot comedies that’s sharp and clever, and isn’t afraid to make fun of itself or acknowledge some of those critics who may have been vocal about not wanting to see the film since it was first announced. The full review of 2016’s Ghostbusters is here below.

‘Ghostbusters’ Might Not Open In China

Ghostbusters

International box office numbers can be huge, but the one market that can have the biggest impact is China. Films like Warcraft and Pacific Rim can bomb in America but find huge success in China and earn enough box office revenue to give studios the confidence to greenlight a sequel. With Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon hitting American theaters this weekend, it only makes sense that China also gets a piece of that pie.

However, there is word that the film might not even make it there, ultimately hurting its worldwide box office gross. More on the story below.
