Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Trailer

That Hot Tub Time Machine sequel you don’t remember ordering? Well, it’s here with a new trailer, a trimmed-down cast, some fresh time-travel mayhem and one or two big laughs to sink your teeth into. After July's red-band trailer, the Hot Tub Time Machine – or "HTTM" – party is underway again.



Gone, of course, is John Cusack, leaving the Hot Tub Time Machine 2 spotlight on the three time-twisting amigos, Nick (Craig Robinson), Jacob (Clark Duke) and Lou (Rob Corddry), with Adam Scott stepping in as the son of Cusack’s character. Yes, he’s only seven years younger than the man who played his father but, well, there are TIME TRAVEL REASONS to explain this.

There are also time travel reasons to explain their new-found fortunes, because this one sees the crew making like Biff Tannen in Back To The Future 2 and using their time portal to win riches, success and fame. Corddry “invents” the internet and Nick takes credit for writing ‘Call Me Maybe’. But then Lou is shot in the…

Top Five Review: Funny Moments Lessened By Needless Drama

Top Five's outrageous humor can't keep its larger story afloat.
For Comedian Chris Rock, life has been one assembly line film after another: Grown Ups, What To Do When You're Expecting, Grown Ups 2, etc. So it comes as a bit of a surprise when he tries something deeper, because his behavior for years (sans Dogma) has been something very different. For Top Five - a project he wrote, directed, and stars - the many monumentally funny exchanges can't keep the interesting premise afloat.

Andre Allen (Rock) is a superstar of film whose bear-suited cop comedies Hammy The Bear have netted him millions and demanding fans who want to see more of the same. Not for Allen: he's ready to star in important films, such as the poorly-received historical drama Uprize, about the Haitian slave rebellion. At the same time, he's getting ready to marry reality TV star Erica Long (Gabrielle Union), while sitting with press members who couldn't care less about his new film. I…

Exodus - Gods and Kings Review: Choppy Biblical Blandness

Exodus: Gods and Kings is utterly forgettable, poorly-cast nonsense.

It's not hard to screw up Moses. Slaves wanting freedom against a dictatorial pharaoh, combined with plagues and the parting of the Red Sea. Yet somehow, Director Ridley Scott manages just that with Exodus: Gods and Kings, turning in a poorly-written and horribly-cast dud that wastes our time on so many levels.

You've heard the story before: Egyptian warrior Moses (Christian Bale) and his life-long friend Ramses (Joel Edgerton) are soon divided when news reaches the royalty of Moses' birth to the very people which father Seti (John Tuturo) has enslaved to build his massive city. After Moses is banished from Egypt, he begins his long trek to save the Hebrews with Godly help in the form of plagues and murder. As Moses leads his people to a final showdown with Ramses' forces, God intervenes with the mother of all parlor tricks, sending Moses to fulfill his destiny.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Names Revealed

We finally got to meet some new characters in the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but now we’re getting to put some names with the faces.


J.J. Abrams, the film’s co-writer and director, and Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, have decided to reveal the identities of some of their new characters exclusively to EW—and they’ve done it in a retro fashion that should bring a smile to anyone familiar with the phrase “Collect ‘Em, Trade ‘Em.”


That was the catchphrase of the Topps trading card company, which in addition to baseball players and comic book characters put out a series of collectible cards featuring scenes and characters from around the galaxy for the original 1977 Star Wars movie.

See all the cards after the Jump...

There were five rounds of Topps cards for that movie, each one designated by a different color, with red and blue leading the line-up. Right now, Abrams and Kennedy have mocked up three from the red series, and five from the blue series.

Agents of SHIELD Casts Blair Underwood

Read on to learn which role the Ironside actor has accepted. With Marvel's Agents of SHIELD on break until March 3rd, we'll soon see the 8-part series Agent Carter take its place. And while the show concluded with what most agree was as strong an episode as they've ever made (read our review), they certainly aren't looking back. The series is moving forward by not just picking up the loose papers ala Captain America: The Winter Solider, it's establishing all-new faces for its second half.

According to THR, Blair Underwood will be joining the show's cast, which begins shooting new scenes this week. Underwood, who resume includes the very good (LA Law) and the frankly awful (Ironside) will play Doctor Andrew Garner, who is Agent Melinda May's ex-husband. Such additions aren't new for the series, as we've enjoyed the Bobbi Morse/Lance Hunter storyline since it was introduced. Now, May's personal life comes into focus with Underwood's si…

The Golden Globes Are Announced

Who got left out of this year's nominations? We have your guide after the jump! The Golden Globes are always a bit of a mixed bag - Johnny Depp for The Tourist! Angelina Jolie for The Tourist! - but this year things are mixed in a different way, with no clear leader dominating the field. No single film stands above the rest when it comes to nominations, although Boyhood picked up nods for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress. Then again, Grand Budapest Hotel also did well, as did Into The Woods and Gone Girl.

Notable by their absence are Unbroken, American Sniper and Interstellar, as is Peter Dinklage for his sterling work on Game Of Thrones. Also, no Sons Of Anarchy, or Orphan Black, or Outlander, or... well, the list goes on.

Below are our key picks of nominees, but for the full list, including more TV and music-based nods, head over to the Golden Globes' official website, where all is revealed (IN BLOCK CAPITALS).

Five Secerts From The Set Of Boogie Nights

With this weekend’s (limited) release of Inherent Vice, director Paul Thomas Anderson will deliver his second movie set in the 1970s. The first, of course, was Boogie Nights, the sprawling tale of the rise and fall of a porn superstar named Dirk Diggler.



The film was hardly a box-office success, but it has become a cult hit over the 17 years since its release. Anderson has developed a reputation as a modern auteur, while Mark Wahlberg, the young rapper–turned–underwear model who played the preternaturally endowed Diggler, has become preternaturally successful Hollywood superstar.

As part of its weeklong celebration of Anderson’s entire catalog, Grantland has published a very (ahem) long oral history of Boogie Nights, chock full of scintillating tidbits and juicy nuggets.

Here are a few (mostly) safe-for-work highlights:

"We offered it to Harvey Keitel," Sheaks said. "He could not understand why."

Ultimately, Burt Reynolds got the part, but he wasn’t always easy on …

Could Spider-Man Show Up In Captain America: Civil War?

We postulate the future of Sony's Spider-man franchise (or lack thereof).

For any of you who have enjoyed the single most amazing run of superhero films ever produced, Sony Pictures' Spider-man films might not even make your list. We wouldn't blame you: The Amazing Spider-man 2's over-bloated storyline earned it the smallest box office totals of the franchise (including Sam Raimi's version), immediately placing Ol' Web Head at the back of superhero bus. In July, Sony moved The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from 2016 to 2018 (which really means it won't happen at all), replacing it with a 'soft reboot' and featuring The Sinister Six. There's also been talk of a female superhero film (maybe Spider-woman). But no one knew the true issues facing the studio, that is until the largest hack in Hollywood's history opened the door to a company struggling to figure out their next moves.

According to details revealed in hacked email correspondences invo…

More Details About Finding Dory

Though we’ve learned some details about Pixar’s Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory (including that Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy are playing the parents to Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful fish), not much else had emerged about the film. Now, Brazilian site Omelete (via Collider, which offers a translation) has talked to freshly anointed Pixar president Jim Morris about the film, and he spilled a few more details.

The new movie reportedly takes place six months after the events in Nemo, with Dory happily settled and living with the marine community in the same reef as Marlin and his son. She still has issues with her memory, and when she attends one of Nemo’s class trips to watch manta rays migrate home, she starts to have serious homesickness feelings and wants to learn where her family is now.

According to Morris, that will be on the California coastline as “the movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea-life rehabilitation and aquarium, where …
