Get Out

It’s nearly been one year since Jordan Peele‘s Get Out was released, and the film continues to make an impact. Considered one of the best films of the year, Get Out has been nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Actor. Quite an accomplishment for a first time director.

However, if you haven’t gotten a chance to see what everyone has been talking about, then you might want to take advantage of the free screenings that AMC will be having this coming Presidents’ Day. More on the announcement below.

Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed
Director: James Foley
Screenwriter: Niall Leonard
Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Rita Ora, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Callum Keith Rennie, Bruce Altman, Arielle Kebbel, Robinne Lee, Brant Daugherty and Marcia Gay Harden
Distributor: Universal Studios
Rated PG-13 | 134 Minutes
Release Date: February 9, 2018

So it is all over — the Fifty Shades trilogy that tried to be more than just kinky unspoken sex and about two seemingly wildly incompatible characters getting together and sustaining a relationship. But the surprising thing about it is that despite how terrible the first feature, Fifty Shades Of Grey, was, the following installments were actually pretty tolerable to the point of enjoyment. Yes, the entire trilogy as a whole is pretty bad, and the lack of chemistry between leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan is clear, but by the time we get from Fifty Shades Darker to Fifty Shades Freed, we see that the franchise has embraced its absurdity.

The result is that we can enjoy the film for what it is. Regardless of how one may feel about the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed is just one of those films that is so bad it’s actually pretty good. And owning up to the fact that it can be mildly enjoyable is hard to admit. My full review below.

Woody Woodpecker

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has released a trailer for Woody Woodpecker, a live-action movie based on the cartoon character of the same name.

Most old favorite cartoon characters have been given or are getting some type of movie adaptation, and a Woody Woodpecker movie has been in the works for quite a while now. Back in 2011 Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio behind the Despicable Me movies, Minions, The Secret Life of Pets, Sing, the upcoming Grinch Who Stole Christmas movie, and more, was set to make a Woody movie. That ultimately didn’t work out, and it eventually became this live-action movie.

James Bond Daniel Craig

Now that Daniel Craig‘s final James Bond film is in very early development, there are various distributors vying for the right to release the film here in the States. Sony had been releasing James Bond films here in the U.S. since 2006’s Casino Royale. However, their deal expired after the release of 2015’s Spectre, leaving various studios ranging from Warner Bros. to Universal battling for the rights to distribute the next film under their banner. Now it looks like Annapurna could be the one to do so. More on the story below.

Universal’s Dark Universe May Be Dead As Key Figures Start To Leave It Behind

Dark Universe title card

Let’s face it, Universal’s Dark Universe was a very ambitious plan that no one really was on board for. Though contemporary takes on the classic Universal monsters sounded like a good idea on the surface, the results were anything but that. It all started with The Mummy, the Tom Cruise-starring vehicle that was supposed to launch the universe. The film performed well-below expectations, and what followed made things even worse for the potential universe. Bride of Frankenstein, directed by Bill Condon and starring Javier Bardem as the Monster and possibly Angelina Jolie as the title character, had been put on hold. Reports stated that it was to fix some of the script issues. While that may be true, it was a sign that things weren’t going well. And this latest bit may be the final nail in the coffin.

According to a new report, the Dark Universe may be dead as key figures like Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are now leaving it behind, forcing Universal to rethink the interconnected monster world that they are creating. More on the story below.

Movies Anywhere

An app and website called Movies Anywhere has officially launched, which allows users to bring together their digital movie collections. So far, five Hollywood giants (Walt Disney Studios, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Entertainment) and four digital retailers (Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu) are taking part. And the best part? It’s free to use.

Those who are among the dwindling number of people who still prefer physical media, myself included, won’t have much use for such a service (but even we can use those digital copy codes that come with physical copies to build a little back-up collection). But for the rest of you, continue below for full details including how you can score five free digital movies.

Fast and Furious Dwayne Johnson in The Fate of the Furious

Fast 9 is being pushed back to 2020, which is unfortunate news for fans who had hoped they would see Dom and the crew tear up the streets of another city with their souped-up cars. But on the bright side, the Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham untitled Fast and Furious spinoff is targeting a 2019 release. More on the story below.

Universal’s ‘Bride Of Frankenstein’ No Longer Alive, For Now At Least

Dark Universe group shot Bride Of Frankenstein

This Summer, Universal released The Mummy, the first film in their new Dark Universe. Similar to that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, the Dark Universe would have re-envisioned Universal’s famous classic movie monsters with a modern day twist. The idea sounded promising, especially when it touted a stellar cast like Tom Cruise and Javier Bardem, and it seemed like it had all the makings of a success.

But The Mummy was panned by critics and was a box office bomb, leaving many to question if there was any need to explore a Dark Universe or kick it off with a reboot of a film so soon. So, at least for now, Universal and director Bill Condon have decided to hit the pause button on what was to be the next installment, Bride Of Frankenstein. More on the story below.

Pitch Perfect 3

It’s hard to deny the absolute charm of Pitch Perfect, and because the first film was so successful, we got a trilogy. Though the second one was a somewhat flawed installment, it still had that hilarious chemistry between the cast. But the upcoming third promises to be the end of the Bellas, at least the ones that started this cinematic a cappella journey.

A new trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 just hit the web, and it reminds us of why this musical ensemble is not only hilarious, but also musically infectious. Check out the latest trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 here below.
