in-theaters-keanu-mothers-day-ratchet-and-clank-man-who-knew-infinity

This week in theaters we have plenty of lighthearted fun. There's the R-rated cat-centric action comedy "Keanu", then there's the pretty-terrible but star-studded holiday movie "Mother's Day", and the animated product placement movie "Ratchet and Clank". In limited release check out the biopic "The Man Who Knew Infinity". More about each movie after the jump.

Synopses, details, critical reception, trailers, clips and more after the jump.

ratchet-and-clank-movie-clips

Focus Features has released six clips for the animated feature "Ratchet & Clank" which is now in theaters.

The film doesn't seem to have much luck with the critics. According to the reviews, so far, it's mostly "product placement" with not much of a story to tell. Kids will surely love it, but adults will probably have a hard time dealing with this uninspired and dated video game adaptation.

The voice cast features Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne, Rosario Dawson, James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye and Sylvester Stallone.

Watch the clips after the jump.

mothers-day-2016-movie-clips-and-images

The comedy "Mother's Day" opens in theaters today, and we have a batch of nine new clips and ten images from the film.

The film has been hit pretty hard by the critics. The all-star holiday flick, a trademark of late for director Garry Marshall, lacks the effort required to make it more than a bland and laugh-less disaster. Even the cast seems to be struggling with the weak material they're given.

The film stars Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts, Britt Robertson, Jason Sudeikis, Timothy Olyphant, Hector Elizondo and Jack Whitehall.

Check out the clips and images after the jump.

the-man-who-knew-infinity-movie-trailer-clips-images-and-posters

Today we have the official trailer, clips, images and posters for the biopic "The Man Who Knew Infinity".

Written and directed by Matt Brown, the film focuses on the friendship between self-taught Indian mathematics genius Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) and the brilliant and eccentric professor G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), a friendship that would change mathematics forever.

The cast also includes Devika Bhise, Stephen Fry, Malcolm Sinclair, Jeremy Northam and Toby Jones.

"The Man Who Knew Infinity" begins a limited run in theaters today.

Check out the trailer, clips, images and poster after the jump.

keanu-2016-movie-clips

Six new clips for the comedy "Keanu" have been released. The film is now in theaters and has received a lot of positive reviews. While not perfect and essentially a one-joke movie, it manages to get by with the help of its cast and rapid-fire comedy that hits more than it misses.

Directed by Peter Atencio ("Key and Peele"), the film stars Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Tiffany Haddish, Method Man, Jason Mitchell, Luis Guzman, Nia Long and Will Forte.

Watch the clips after the jump.

phoenix-2014-new-on-dvd-and-blu-ray

Product Description: A riveting mystery of identity unfolds against the turmoil of post-World War II Germany in the stunning new film from acclaimed director Christian Petzold (Barbara). Nelly (Nina Hoss), a German-Jewish nightclub singer, has survived a concentration camp, but with her face disfigured by a bullet wound. After reconstructive surgery, Nelly emerges with a new face, one similar but different enough that her former husband, Johnny (Ronald Zehrfeld), doesn't recognize her. Rather than reveal herself, Nelly walks into a dangerous game of duplicity and disguise as she tries to figure out if the man she loves may have betrayed her to the Nazis. Evoking the haunted mood of post-war Berlin, Phoenix weaves a complex tale of a nation's tragedy and a woman's search for answers as it builds towards an unforgettable, heart-stopping climax.

Directed by Jake Szymanski ("7 Days in Hell"), the film also stars Stephen Root, Sugar Lyn Beard, Alice Wetterlund and Sam Richardson.

Daisy Ridley Photo
Daisy Ridley ("Star Wars: The Force Awakens") has signed on to star in the drama "The Lost Wife". Based on the book by Alyson Richman, the film will tell the story of a talented art student in pre-war Prague who falls in love with her best friend’s older brother, but their romance is brutally interrupted by the imminent Nazi invasion.

The script is written by Marc Klein ("Serendipity", "A Good Year"). Michelle Chydzik, Jeff Waxman and Robbie Brenner are producing the film which is currently considered top priority. No studio or director have been attached to the project, so far.

Following the praise generated by her role in "The Force Awakens", Ridley has become one of the most sought after young actresses of the moment. She is currently working on "Episode VIII" of the "Star Wars" saga, but she has also joined the J.J. Abrams-produced remake "Kolma", and there are even talks of the actress being considered for a "Tomb Raider" big-screen reboot.

batman-the-killing-joke-movie-trailer-and-images

Warner Bros. has released the first full trailer and a batch of images for their direct-to-video animated feature "Batman: The Killing Joke".

Directed by Sam Liu ("Batman: Year One"), the film is based on Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's award-winning 1988 graphic novel which pits Batman against the Joker in one of their most brutal confrontations. Furthermore, the movie is rated R for "some bloody images and disturbing content", which is definitely a first in the realm of DC Comics animation.

The voice cast features veterans Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker, and they are joined by Ray Wise as Commissioner James Gordon and Tara Strong as Barbara Gordon.

Here is what the studio announced in a press release regarding the film's R rating:
"From the start of production, we encouraged producer Bruce Timm and our team at Warner Bros. Animation to remain faithful to the original story — regardless of the eventual MPAA rating,” said Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation & Warner Digital Series, in a statement. “The Killing Joke is revered by the fans, particularly for its blunt, often-shocking adult themes and situations. We felt it was our responsibility to present our core audience — the comics-loving community — with an animated film that authentically represented the tale they know all too well."
"Batman: The Killing Joke" is expected to premiere at the Comic-Con this summer followed by a release on DVD and Blu-ray later this year.

dillinger-1973-new-on-blu-ray

Product Description: NOBODY DID IT LIKE DILLINGER! The runaway success of Bonnie and Clyde in 1967 proved massively influential: it made stars of Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, introduced a new form of violence to the movies, and inspired a stream of imitators, including Bloody Mama, Martin Scorsese's Boxcar Bertha and the directorial debut of John Milius, Dillinger. Milius presents John Dillinger as an almost mythical figure, tracing the rise and fall of the Depression era's Public Enemy Number One as he takes on the banks and the G-men, led by the infamous Melvin Purvis. Starring Sam Peckinpah favorites Warren Oates and Ben Johnson as Dillinger and Purvis, and with a supporting cast including Harry Dean Stanton, Richard Dreyfuss and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas, Dillinger is a top drawer gangster picture: explosive, stylish and hugely entertaining.
