F Gary Gray

If you are looking for a big screen adaptation of a forgotten ’80s cartoon, then M.A.S.K. might be just your fix.

Paramount has been working on one for quite some time, and now they have found a new director. The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray will now helm the film, which features heroes wearing, you guessed it, masks. More on the story, below.

‘Action Point’ Trailer: Johnny Knoxville Is Up To His Old Tricks Again

Action Point header

Johnny Knoxville has made a name for himself by subjecting himself to insane stunts that probably no one else but him would perform. Sometimes these daredevil schemes work better as a reality show, and other times, if you can figure out how to weave them into a plot, it can make for an interesting film.

That’s what we could get in Action Point. The film, which is based on a true story, sees Knoxville play the owner of a low-rent amusement park where the rides are not designed with safety in mind. But when a competing amusement park threatens to shut them down, it is up to the Action Point team to draw in more guests by any means necessary. Check out the full trailer below.

‘Transformers’ Movie Franchise Could Be Headed For A Reboot

Transformers: The Last Knight feat Bumblebee

Never underestimate how convoluted the entire Transformers Cinematic Universe is. With each new installment, the franchise finds a way to disregard all of its rules and canon. Nothing makes sense. The only consistent thing about it was the Bayhem — explosions, sexual exploitation, racism, and the usual nonsensical material that comes with a Michael Bay film. But now that the director is out, we can hopefully look forward to something new for Transformers.

Especially when Paramount brought in a group of writers to pen up to 12 possible Transformers films. It’s still unclear if that is the number the studio is targeting. But if it is, then a possible reboot could just be the thing to help the franchise achieve Marvel Studios-like success. And that reboot may be in the works. More on the story below.

A Quiet Place

Back in November we saw the first teaser trailer for A Quiet Place, an upcoming horror movie written by, directed by, and starring John Krasinski (The Office, 13 Hours). Then we saw a Super Bowl TV spot and interview with Krasinski earlier this month.

Now Paramount Pictures has released an official trailer for the film, which also stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe. The story involves a family who is forced to live in a secluded area and in complete silence in order to avoid attracting the attention of a mysterious danger, which thrives on any sounds someone might make.

Continue below to check out the official trailer.

Movie Review: The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox
Director: Julius Onah
Screenwriter: Oren Uziel and Doug Jung
Cast: Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Aksel Hennie, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd, John Ortiz, David Oyelowo, and Zhang Ziyi
Distributor: Netflix
Rated TV-MA | 102 Mintues
Release Date: January 4, 2018

One thing you have to appreciate about the Cloverfield franchise is that it is building its own mythology without the films’ actually knowing its a part of J.J. Abrams’ grand mystery box scheme. Cloverfield was a sci-fi romp that drew its found-footage inspiration from films like Blair Witch. 10 Cloverfield Lane was a more focused offering that was like a theatrical play set almost entirely in an underground bunker. And both are somehow loosely connected to each other without the characters of those films knowing it. However, Netflix surprised us all on Sunday night by releasing The Cloverfield Paradox, the latest installment of the Cloverfield franchise, this time set in space.

Unfortunately, the entire film is a disjointed mess that haphazardly throws in dated and familiar plot devices and twists for the sake of being “Cloverfield In Space.”

‘A Quiet Place’ Super Bowl Spot: John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Learn The Value Of Silence

A Quiet Place

It’s ironic that Paramount Pictures would drop A Quiet Place TV spot during what could be the loudest game of the year, but that’s what they did during tonight’s Super Bowl broadcast. The entire film’s characters’ survival hinges on their ability to stay as quiet as possible. If they don’t, they risk being killed by shadowy hunters who hear like a bat. The film comes from director John Krasinski, who also stars in the film with his real-life actress wife Emily Blunt. While the first trailer gave us a small glimpse of what family life is like when living in silence, this new trailer throws in all the scares at you, and never misses a beat. Check out the Super Bowl spot and featurette here below.

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Super Bowl Spot & Trailer: Tom Cruise Proves No Stunt Is Too Dangerous For Him

Mission: Impossible Fallout

As promised, Paramount has released our first look at Mission: Impossible – Fallout with a Super Bowl spot and a full trailer. Tom Cruise, who reprises his role as agent Ethan Hunt, reunites with his Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie. And based on the film’s poster, which debuted last week, the sequel will live up to the death-defying stunts that the MI films are largely known for. Remember how Cruise scaled the world’s tallest building, or clung on for dear life on the side of an aircraft while in midair? Well, the actor is now taking it one step further by dangling from a helicopter. Check it out here below.

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Poster Released Ahead Of Super Bowl Trailer

Mission: Impossible - Fallout header image

Releasing the first trailer for a blockbuster film during the Super Bowl isn’t a completely new strategy. But it is one that will get the most eyes considering that it is one of the most watched games on the planet. And with companies spending up to $5 million for each commercial, you can bet that each studio is going to put their best – or at least blockbustery – film out there. And to get ahead of that, some, like Paramount, are releasing teaser posters to generate some interest.

The first poster for Mission: Impossible – Fallout has been released. The film is the sixth installment of the long-running franchise, which sees Tom Cruise reprising his role as Ethan Hunt once more. Check out the poster below.

‘God Particle’: ‘Cloverfield’ Spinoff May Be Released By Netflix

10 Cloverfield Lane Cast

The Cloverfield films have been known to have an unorthodox marketing campaign. From out of nowhere a trailer can appear for a film that was produced under a different title. And for the most part, this strategy has worked. It may not produce wild box office numbers like blockbuster tentpoles do, but under the production and marketing budget of the two films so far, it is enough of a hit to warrant more.

However, it appears that Paramount Pictures is having second thoughts about releasing the next Cloverfield film, which is tentatively titled God Particle. There are reports now that the film might be heading to Netflix. More on the story below.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Michelle in 10 Cloverfield Lane

It’s being reported that Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been cast as the female lead in Gemini Man, an upcoming action thriller from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media. The actress beat out Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany for the role.

Winstead joins Will Smith, who will actually be playing two roles, on the cast. Smith will play an older assassin named Henry who’s looking to escape that life, and also a clone of Henry who’s 25 years younger, in top form as an assassin, and on a mission to kill his older self. Winstead will play an operative working for the same company as Smith’s character who’s ordered to keep an eye on Henry, but ultimately ends up joining forces with him.
