Grizzly II: Revenge Trailer Starring George Clooney, Laura Dern and Charlie Sheen

grizzlyii

There may not be much in the way of new movies being released at the moment, but to a certain group of movie fans, this may be even better. The producers of the long lost horror sequel Grizzly II: Revenge have, after 37 years, somehow managed to get the legendary film completed and will be releasing it into the wild early next year. The original film was shot in Hungary in 1983 but before it could be finished, one of the executive producers disappeared with all of the money. A poor quality workprint version of the film has been floating around since 2007 but now we are apparently getting a re-edited, “proper” release, which is pretty crazy considering that the movie stars George Clooney, Laura Dern, Charlie Sheen, Louise Fletcher and John Rhys-Davies. Clooney, Dern and Sheen don’t appear to have much screen time, but the movie does feature live performances from several ’80s bands in front of a crowd of 50,000 extras. Grizzly II: Revenge arrives in select theatres and on VOD on Jan. 8th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

peterdinklage

After a career-defining and multiple Emmy award-winning turn as Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, Peter Dinklage now finds himself in the tricky position of landing some solid follow-ups to such a beloved role. Although he has had appearances in recent blockbusters like Avengers: Infinity War, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Pixels, high-profile lead roles have been a little less frequent. That being said, he is currently in production on Joe Wright’s Cyrano and this week we are hearing that he will be headlining an intriguing project that has the potential to be great: Legendary’s upcoming reboot of the Troma cult classic The Toxic Avenger. Hit the jump to find out what we know.

onenightinmiami

Everyone has been talking about how Netflix might break an Oscar record for the most Best Picture nominees by a single studio this year, but Amazon has at least a couple of awards contenders up their sleeve including Regina King’s directorial debut One Night in Miami. Based on the play by Kemp Powers, the story presents a fictionalized meeting between Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke in a Miami hotel room in February 1964 following Ali’s win over Sonny Liston. Starring Kingsley Ben-Adir as Malcolm X, Eli Goree as Muhammad Ali, Aldis Hodge as Jim Brown and Leslie Odom Jr. as Sam Cooke, the movie received strong reviews coming out of the Venice Film Festival and was the first runner up for the People’s Choice Award at TIFF. One Night in Miami hits select theatres on Christmas Day followed by a release on Prime Video on Jan. 15th; check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

Deadpool 3 Moving Forward at Disney

deadpool3

When Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox was announced last year, Marvel fans were excited to see the X-Men and Fantastic Four potentially join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there were plenty of questions about what would happen to some of the R-rated franchises in Fox’s catalogue and whether they would survive the transition as well. Considering that Deadpool and Deadpool 2 both made about $780 million worldwide, it seemed unlikely that Disney would just set that particular character aside and do nothing with it. Fortunately, we are hearing this week that a Deadpool sequel is slowly starting to come together at Disney and that the merc with a mouth will indeed be permitted to continue dropping as many F-bombs as he wants. Hit the jump for more details.

Our Friend Trailer Starring Jason Segel, Dakota Johnson and Casey Affleck

ourfriend

After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, the well-received dramedy Our Friend (previously known simply as The Friend) will finally get a release early next year without very much out there in the way of competition. Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Megan Leavey, Blackfish), the movie is based on the true story of a young family dealing with a terminal cancer diagnosis and their best friend, who moves in with them and puts his own life on hold in order to help them through it. It looks like a real tearjerker but also appears to be uplifting as well and it attempts to capture the dynamics of a unique relationship, the kind that isn’t seen on screen very often. The movie stars Casey Affleck and Dakota Johnson as the husband and wife along with Jason Segel as the titular friend. Our Friend arrives in select theatres and on VOD on Jan. 22nd; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Developing a Universal Monster Movie Starring Channing Tatum

lordmillertatum

It feels like the Universal Monster revival is starting to get a little out of hand as the studio now has no less than a dozen different projects in various stages of development after just one proven hit: Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man. That movie certainly provided some proof that these classic characters can be updated and successfully play to a modern audience, although Blumhouse’s low budget approach was also an important part of the film’s success. Now this week we are hearing that a new Universal Monster movie is in the works with some pretty big names behind it: Phil Lord and Chris Miller are producing and Channing Tatum is attached to star. Something tells me this one might be a little more expensive. Hit the jump to find out what we know.

Pieces of a Woman Trailer Starring Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf

piecesofawoman

Netflix has one more awards season entry to add to their already impressive list with the release of the acclaimed drama Pieces of a Woman early next year. Directed by Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó (White God), the movie stars Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf as a couple who experience the painful loss of a child and struggle to come to terms with their grief in different ways. The movie is said to be emotionally devastating and Kirby’s performance in particular has been singled out as being Oscar-worthy (she won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival a few months ago). Pieces of a Woman co-stars Molly Parker, Sarah Snook, Iliza Shlesinger, Benny Safdie, Jimmie Fails and Ellen Burstyn and Martin Scorsese is also listed as executive producer. Pieces of a Woman hits select theatres on Dec. 30th before arriving on Netflix on Jan. 7th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

Predator 5 Moving Forward with 10 Cloverfield Lane Director

predator5

Shane Black’s The Predator was arguably one of the bigger moviegoing disappointments of 2018 and after some last minute controversy and lacklustre reviews it’s not too surprising that he wouldn’t be asked back to direct a sequel. However, that being said, it looks like 20th Century Studios is still moving forward with a new Predator movie under Disney ownership… it just won’t pick up where the last one left off. We are hearing that the next Predator movie is in development with Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) attached to direct. Hit the jump to find out what we know.
