The LEGO® Movie,” the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, opens in theaters February 7, 2014. It stars the vocal talents of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.


The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Norman Reedus: THE WALKING DEAD TOKYO PRANK

With help from Andrew Lincoln and Greg Nicotero, The Walking Dead’s “ultimate fan” Nick Santonastasso just zombie-pranked Norman Reedus while he was promoting the back half of the season in Toyko. The prank kicked off Fox’s social media driven campaign “#getFOXed.”

Batman Vs Superman Pushed To 2016

And just like that, Batman and Superman’s big team-up was gone from its planned July 2015 release slot. Was it an evil plot by Lex Luthor or someone else from their vast rogues gallery? A superheroic huff? Nothing so suspicious or whiny: Warners has announced a months-long delay to allow Zack Snyder more time to work on the film.

Citing a wish to give the filmmakers “time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story,” the studio put out a press release on Friday night, adding that the decision to move the release to May 6, 2016 was made when production plans shifted to the second quarter of this year. “We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tent pole releases. We share the fans’ excitement to see DC Comics’ most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theatres in May 2016.”

Rumors naturally began flaring as soon as t…

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For ABOUT LAST NIGHT In Sacramento

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For ABOUT LAST NIGHT on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 7:00 PM at Century Downtown Plaza 7 In Sacramento.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT, which finds Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant in the remake of Ed Zwick’s 1986 Brat pack-era comedy.


Patterned along similar lines to the ‘80s version (and still paying proper respect to the original source material, David Mamet’s play Sexual Perversity In Chicago), ABOUT LAST NIGHT finds mismatched lovers Hart and Hall getting together, and introducing their best friends, Ealy and Patton, to one another.


That in turn sparks a true love connection, and we’re treated to two – or maybe four – very different viewpoints on love, sex, relationships and the best way to disguise that you really, really don’t like someone’s cooking. Hint: have a bag ready to spit into.


Hart, who is a rising comedy lead, steals a lot of the good lines here, though Hall matches him, while Ealy and Bryant are the more laidback lovers. It …

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Review. The Film Is A Smart, Wild, & Entertaining Ride

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Review By: MattInRC
TWITTER: The heart-pounding #JackRyanMovie Shadow Recruit is a smart, wild, and entertaining ride.


Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has all the trappings of a great franchise in the making.

Among our many movie fetishes, we here at SJF are big fans of intelligent spy movies that incorporate a sensible amount of action - from Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October to Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy we love espionage in almost any form, including the stylish Skyfall and what should have been last year's Oscar winner in Zero Dark Thirty. In each of these classics, the characters who protect us are as important as the mission itself, making their drama an essential part of the story. Thankfully, the newest candidate - Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - impresses us for all of these reasons.


As this is an origin story, we see the college-bound Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) studying in England just as the 9/11 attacks occur. As a result, he volunteers for the …

RIDE ALONG Movie Review. The Film Is Funny From Start To Finish

RIDE ALONG Movie Review By: MattInRC
Thankfully, Ride Along takes us out of the Month of Meh in hilarious fashion.


As we've lamented before, films in January are usually forgettable tripe thrown together to literally get Hollywood past the doldrums of the Oscar season. The results are usually just as bad - from The Legend of Hercules to The Nut Job and The Marked Ones. Thankfully, our first REAL movie of 2014 arrives with the hilarious buddy-cop Ride Along, reminding us that Januaries are not so bad.


High school security employee Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) wants desperately to join the Atlanta Police Department, hoping to take his online Xbox handle as BlackHammer to the streets. He also hopes to win the hand of his girlfriend Angela (Tika Sumpter), whose brother James Payton (Ice Cube) already serves on the force. However, James doesn't have a great opinion of Ben, whom he thinks is not ready for either the police or his sister. Payton decides to take Ben on a ride along, …

Trailer For CESAR CHAVEZ Starring Michael Peña & John Malkovich

Watch the official trailer for CESAR CHAVEZ has arrived today.

In CESAR CHAVEZ, director Diego Luna presents a powerful cinematic portrait of the legendary activist. The film stars Michael Peña (End of Watch, Lionsgate’s Academy Award-winning Crash) in the title role, along with America Ferrera (Ugly Betty, End of Watch), Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Seven Pounds) and John Malkovich (In The Line of Fire, Summit Entertainment’s Red and Red 2).

Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the …

Kristen Stewart Reveals The Secret Behind "Equals"

Back in October when it was first announced, not much was known about Equals. We were aware that it was some sort of love story, directed by Drake Doremus (Like Crazy, Breath In) written by Nathan Parker (Moon), and it had been announced that Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult would be starring. But what was the film beyond its genre? Now we know: Stewart has revealed that it's an updated version of George Orwell's dystopian classic Nineteen Eighty-Four.

"I'm terrified of it," says the quivering Stewart. "I can't believe I agreed to do it. Though it's a movie with a really basic concept, it's overtly ambitious. Things go wrong because you can't deny the humanity in everyone. It's the most devastating story."
If Hoult is playing some version of the novel's Winston Smith, we'd assume Stewart's is the Julia role: Winston's lover and thought-crime co-conspirator. Without getting into spoilers, things don't go well for …

THE NUT JOB Review.The Film Is A Perfect Netflix Candidate

THE NUT JOB Review By: MattInRC
TWITTER: The Month of Meh continues with the forgettable @TheNutJobMovie.

The Month of Meh - also known as January - has typically been the Hollywood equivalent of The Island of Forgotten Toys: cast-off creatures too freakish for the Oscar season and not worthy enough for even Summer consideration. And while there have been exceptions - last year's Gangster Squad, and 2012' Contraband - January's releases are confined to live in the wasteland of digital media before being summarily dismissed to obscurity. The well-meaning but utterly forgettable animated flick The Nut Job is just such a film, mildly funny in parts but missing any semblance of a soul or sense of itself.

"Forever May They "Reign" Why you Should Be Watching This Show

"Forever May They "Reign" By: April Faith Spice
"Forever may they "Reign"... Why you should be watching the new award winning show!"

A few months ago we tried to tell you that you needed to be watching the new CW show "Reign" based (loosely) off of Mary Queen of Scots and her engagement to the Prince of France. (Played by Adelaide Kane, and Toby Regbo) Now I'm reminding you because for only being on the air for 3 months they have their first award!


Last week at the People's Choice awards, "Reign" brought home the awards for "Favorite New Drama" beating out other nominee's such as "The Originals" (The Vampire Diaries Spin-off), Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Sleepy Hollow to name a few.

Adelaide Kane and Torrance Combs (who plays the King of France's bastard Son, Bash) were there to accept the award and as you can tell from the pictures, the two are fun loving and grateful to be where they…
