Arnold Schwarzenegger said he'd be back, but so far audiences haven't exactly welcomed him with open arms. 'The Last Stand' and 'Escape Plan' may have underperformed at the box office, but that's not stopping the Austrian Oak from continuing his post-Governor action career and 'Sabotage' looks like more of the same, for better or for worse. A new poster for the film debuted at IGN and it's exactly what you'd expect from this kind of movie.
As far as one-room thrillers go, you don't get much crazier or ambitious than 'Grand Piano,' which sees Elijah Wood spending the bulk of the running time sitting behind the titular instrument. If you're curious how such a thing is possible, the new trailer for the film should fill in some blanks. You see, this isn't just a movie about a disgraced master pianist (Wood) making his grand comeback, this is a movie about a disgraced master pianist making his grand comeback while a sniper (John Cusack) threatens to kill him if he misses a single note.
Few leading men are as reliable as Kevin Costner, who can fluctuate between icy badass and adoring father figure at the drop of a hat. So what happens when you cast him as a tough secret agent and a dad who just wants to spend time with his daughter? Well, the new '3 Days to Kill' trailer gives us a peek at such a scenario.
If it's set in Middle Earth, it's going to open at number one. That's common knowledge. The big question is always how big or how small it's going to open at number one. 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' did open at number one this weekend, but it's a number that's going to feel controversial for people who like to bicker about box office numbers. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it disappointing? Honestly, you could make a case for all of those.
You don't have to be a foodie to know that Guy Fieri is one of the worst things to happen to televised cooking entertainment (and food in general), so the platinum-haired douche bag of the Food Network is the perfect guy to skewer on 'SNL' and the show doesn't pull its punches. Fieri isn't even the main target: his viewers and everything else they watch get torn to shreds.
It's not every day that an actor of John Goodman's caliber hosts 'SNL,' but whatever the odds, it's not nearly as uncommon as him being joined by Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro for a holiday-themed sketch that sees the three silver screen icons re-imagined as tough-talking guys on the way to visit the baby Jesus. Yep, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...
You've surely seen the trailers for '47 Ronin,' which feature Keanu Reeves teaming up with a bunch of masterless samurai to take on a bunch of supernatural threats. If you saw them and wondered what the heck was going on, you're not alone.
The weekend following a major holiday is always a little slow. The boost from vacationing moviegoers is gone, so everyone tends to take a major dip. Some films end up okay. Some die on the vine. This weekend saw two films weather the storm perfectly fine and one new release collapse on the starting line.
Here's the weird thing about recurring 'SNL' characters and sketches: you may get tired or annoyed by them at the time, but ten years later, you'll just be longing for them. We didn't know how much we were missing the "Bill Brasky" sketches until last night, when the show brought the character back one more time. After all, when you have Will Ferrell in the house, you've got to revisit some of his classics.
When someone guest hosts 'SNL,' it's usually because they have something to promote. Even the great Paul Rudd doesn't host the show for no reason. The man has 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' coming out soon and he's got to keep the promotional train a'moving. Call this week's opening monologue a commercial if you want, but man, it's one heck of a commercial. Anything that lets us see Ron Burgundy's news team reunite to perform "Afternoon Delight" is worth the effort. Oh, and there's also that band One Direction because the kids like 'em.
