As far as source material goes, classic Atari games would be categorized under “things least likely to inspire a movie,” along with objects like vacuum cleaners and steel beams. But the power of nostalgia is strong, and Hollywood is quite fond of taking unlikely properties from your childhood and turning them into movies — like Battleship and Trolls. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Atari’s Missile Command and Centipede games are heading to the big screen.
Early details on The Accountant made the new film from Warrior director Gavin O’Connor sound like it was based on a graphic novel, even though it’s not: Ben Affleck stars as a white collar accountant who leads a double-life as a lethal assassin. So it wasn’t really surprising when WB announced plans to release a tie-in comic book for The Accountant. What is a bit surprising is the tone of the first trailer, which presents an intriguing and off-kilter drama about a man struggling with a vague mental disorder.
It may be Mother’s Day, but Sony doesn’t want your dad to feel left out. The studio has released a teaser for the first Inferno trailer, along with a couple of posters offering a sneak peek at the finale to The Da Vinci Code trilogy. And it looks like the series is prepared to go out with a bang, as Tom Hanks is literally holding the fate of the world in his hands.
Honestly, it’s surprising it took this long for a studio to begin developing a horror movie based on Slender Man, the creepy meme that took on a prolific life of its own, inspiring countless photoshopped images, fan art, fan fiction and eventually a video game and a documentary. As rumored yesterday and confirmed today, Screen Gems is the studio that will finally put Slender Man on the big screen, though given how quickly things tend to age in internet years, you have to wonder if this horror movie will still feel relevant by the time it hits theaters.
The First Omen isn’t the greatest title — it’s as if it was concocted by an obnoxious internet commenter who only speaks in all-caps. There’s something insistent and sort of presumptuous about “First” in that title, and while yet another film — a prequel, no less — based on iconic horror classic The Omen is enough to trigger an eye roll, there’s reason to give this one the benefit of the doubt.
It’s okay to call Chris Hemsworth’s character in the new Ghostbusters movie big and dumb — those are his words, not mine. In a brilliant bit of casting, the actor sometimes known as Thor plays administrative assistant to Paul Feig’s ghost-busting crew, and a new featurette from the upcoming film will help you get to know Hemsworth and his earnestly goofy sense of humor (and ridiculous good looks, to be honest).
The summer movie season is about a month away, kicking off with Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and continuing through August with Suicide Squad. There are other, non-superhero movies hitting theaters this summer, if you can believe it, and we have some new photos from those and several of this year’s other blockbuster offerings. You’re probably already properly excited for a lot of these movies thanks to their trailers, but if you’re eager for another sneak peek, these photos should do the trick.
Let’s take a break from Batman and Superman for another epic battle — the Alliance vs. the Horde, aka Warcraft. The international trailer for Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the hit MMORPG has arrived, bringing lots of new footage as the two factions prepare for all-out war, and two races unite to protect their future. Orcs and humans fighting together, mass hysteria, etc.
Hopefully Special Correspondents is funnier than this trailer for the new Netflix movie suggests — though to be fair, some great comedies have had some pretty lame trailers. Ricky Gervais returns to the home of his series Derek for a new original film that teams the famed British comedian with Eric Bana, resulting an unlikely but seemingly delightful pairing.
It’s nice to be reminded that Shane Black has a new movie hitting theaters soon. And in case you forgot, a new trailer for The Nice Guys has arrived, teasing Black’s noir action-comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a mismatched investigative team who get in way over their heads while trying to solve the disappearance of a young woman. That plot sounds a bit serious, but the latest trailer promises it’s anything but. (Okay, maybe it’s a little serious. Just a little.)
