Get Hard (2015) new on DVD and Blu-Ray

Product Description: When millionaire hedge fund manager James King (Will Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James' one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison. Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to 'get hard' and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other.

Official Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Title Revealed

The official title for Marvel's sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" has been revealed. In keeping with the film's tone, the title will be "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", which was probably inspired, in part, by Star-Lord's mix tape, and the movie's soundtrack, which was called "Awesome Mix Vol. 1". The announcement was a bit of a slip up from producer Kevin Feige in an interview in which he said:
"We start shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 in February-March 2016."
Later, the film's director, James Gunn, tweeted a confirmation that the title will indeed be "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2":


Followed by another tweet to assuage the doubts of skeptic fans:


"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" opens in theaters on May 5, 2017.

Terminator Genisys Making Of Featurettes

Four new featurettes for "Terminator: Genisys" have been released. The new behind-the-scenes videos offer further insight into the reboot's characters. Unfortunately, the movie doesn't seem to be the breath of fresh air that the franchise needed, with many critics slamming it for being an empty convoluted mess. On a more positive note, some critics have said that it is better than "Terminator: Salvation".

Directed by Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World"), the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee, Dayo Okeniyi, Courtney B. Vance and J.K. Simmons.

"Terminator: Genisys" opens in theaters tomorrow.

Scream TV Series Trailers, Clip and Poster

MTV's "Scream" TV series premieres today, so here are all the trailers and promos released for the show, as well as an 8-minute clip from the pilot episode and a poster.

The series is based on Wes Craven's famous slasher franchise and, just like the first film, it starts off with the murder of a teen which drives the town of Lakewood into a frenzy and exposes the inner workings of its complex social hierarchy. Meaning there's a killer on the loose and there are a bunch of teens who are going to become victims.

The clip offers a glimpse of the pilot episode's first 8 minutes in which Bella Thorne plays the updated version of Drew Barrymore's character from Craven's film as she is stalked and killed by the mysterious maniac.

The show also stars Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini, John Karna, Connor Weil, Tracy Middendorf and Jason Wiles.

Tom Holland is Marvel's New Spider-Man
It was a fierce battle, but Marvel finally selected the young actor who will be their new Spider-Man. Tom Holland, whom you might recognize from the 2012 tsunami drama "The Impossible", will be the new webslinger and he will first make an appearance in the studio's "Captain America: Civil War" in 2016, before appearing in a standalone Spider-Man film in 2017. The 19-year-old English actor was chosen over other young contenders such as Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James.

Marvel has also chosen a director for the standalone film. Jon Watts ("Cop Car") will helm the 2017 reboot. The existence of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the result of a rather unusual partnership between Marvel and Sony, the latter being the studio in charge of bringing Spidey to the big screen in two different franchises already. Holland will be the third actor to play the superhero since 2002. Will audiences be able to stomach a second reboot ? Time will tell.

Tom Holland can also be seen this year in Ron Howard's "In the Heart of the Sea" which opens in December.

This weekend Max and Ted fight for box-office supremacy. One is a military trained dog while the other is a foul-mouthed pot-smoking teddy bear. Who will win ? Neither movie succeeded in getting approval from critics, but "Ted 2" does have a significant edge over the family-friendly adventure "Max". In the limited release realm we have the 1980's action flick homage "Big Game" and the romantic thriller "Escobar: Paradise Lost". More about each movie after the jump.

Escobar Paradise Lost Movie Clips and Posters

Today we have seven clips and eighteen images from the movie "Escobar: Paradise Lost". The film stars Josh Hutcherson as a young surfer who finds the woman of his dreams (Claudia Traisac), but finds himself pulled into the dangerous world of drug trafficking by her uncle, infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (Benicio del Toro). The film is written and directed by Andrea Di Stefano, and despite mostly mixed reviews, everyone agrees that del Toro makes this movie worth sitting through.

"Escobar: Paradise Lost" begins a limited run in theaters in the U.S. today.

Big Game Movie Clips

"Rare Exports" director Jalmari Helander's new action film "Big Game" opens in theaters today (limited release), so here are five new clips to enjoy. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson as the President of the United States as he finds himself needing to be rescued by a young thirteen-year-old (Onni Tommila) when Air Force One is shot down over a Finnish forest.

Surprisingly, the film's reviews are quite good. Although the plot might sound ridiculous, Helander makes it all much smarter than you'd expect while offering an homage to 1980s action flicks.

The film also stars Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman, Jim Broadbent, Ted Levine and Victor Garber.

Ted 2 Movie Clips

Today we have five clips from the comedy sequel "Ted 2" which opens today in theaters. Written and directed by Seth MacFarlane, the film has been getting mostly mixed reviews from critics who have complained primarily about the film's pacing and narrative issues while acknowledging that it does have moments that are downright hilarious. You just have to be patient in between those moments.

MacFarlane once again voices the foul-mouthed teddy bear and he is joined by Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, John Slattery, Morgan Freeman, Patrick Warburton, John Carroll Lynch, Dennis Haysbert and Patrick Stewart.

The only human Max is willing to connect to is Kyle's teenage brother (Josh Wiggins) and the two form a bond that will lead them to life-altering revelations.

Directed by Boaz Yakin ("Remember the Titans") from a script written by Yakin and Sheldon Lettich ("Rambo III"), the film also stars Lauren Graham, Thomas Haden Church, Mia Xitlali and Jay Hernandez.

Paranormal Activity 5 The Ghost Dimension Trailer

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for director Gregory Plotkin's "Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension", the fifth and final entry in the found footage franchise. This last installment follows a new family who move into a house, discover a video camera and some tapes, and get in trouble with the killer entity known as Toby.

For the first time in the history of the series we will be able to actually see the entities, which actually looks more like a gimmick for the movie's 3D presentation. Yes, "The Ghost Dimension" will be released in 3D. Some of the visual effects remind me of "Hollow Man". Is that a good, or a bad thing ?

I'm not sure how 3D works in a found footage film and I'm almost too afraid to find out, but I guess the filmmakers probably found ways to stabilize the shots more effectively for the 3D shots. Either way, this final chapter also promises lots of answers to questions that I honestly stopped asking after the third movie.

"Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension" opens in theaters on October 23rd.

Big Game Movie Trailers, Pictures and Posters

Jackson) when Air Force One is shot down. Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman, Jim Broadbent, Ted Levine and Victor Garber co-star.

The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu. But their destiny changes abruptly in this stunningly rendered film from a master of world cinema.
