Bill Hader encounters drama on and off the stage in Barry Season 2 trailer Word from the stage is that the first season of HBO’s BARRY delivered a killer ending. In fact, I’ve been told by a few of my JoBlo compatriots that they’ve no idea where the comedic crime-drama starring Bill Hader‘s darkly-humored hitman could go for its second season.

Every year, movie fans take bets and argue over which films should win the top prize at the Academy Awards. While Best Picture doesn't invalidate the worth of the other films nominated it sometimes can prove that those who vote don't always get it right. Some years, the awards are so close that it makes the decision impossible but other years it is clear that the wrong choice was made. Hingsight is always 20/20, but this list gathers the ten films that have had a lasting impact on… Read More...

Teaser Trailer for Sony Animation's Sequel 'The Angry Birds Movie 2' "We're going to need a bigger slingshot." Sony Pictures Animation and Rovio Animation have revealed the teaser trailer for The Angry Birds Movie 2, a sequel to one of the worst animated movies ever. Why do we need more?! The Angry Birds Movie 2, of course, continues where the first left off with all the birds and pigs still going at it. There isn't even much of a synopsis, only a vague description stating that "the flightless birds and scheming green pigs take their beef to the next level." Ugh.

District 9 director Neill Blomkamp is currently developing a new RoboCop movie, and last summer, he made headlines when he said that actor Peter Weller, who played the character in the original movie and its first sequel, should step back into the suit once again.

The Mad Max: Fury Road actress will co-star with KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk) in The Old Guard, a movie adaptation of the recent comic series about “a covert group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when their extraordinary abilities are exposed.” That may sound like a somewhat generic description, but this film sounds like it could be something very special.

This weekend brings the 91st Academy Awards to ABC, and it’s probably going to be a complete disaster. Not only is there no host for the ceremony, but The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences pissed everyone off by cutting a few awards from the live broadcast (only to reinstate them in the show). On top of that, they’ve had a real problem figuring out how the nominees for Best Original Song were going to be performed during the ceremony too. But the Oscars are really about rewarding the greatest achievements in film from the previous year.

This week Netflix dropped the trailer for The Dirt, an adaptation of the best-selling Mötley Crüe biography of the same name, written by the band itself.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park is one of my favorite places on the planet. But I’m not blind to the fact that it’s in desperate need of some TLC, an injection of fresh imagination…and a ton of money to fix the cracks and tighten the gears.

One of last year’s best films, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is swinging onto digital and Blu-ray soon. It brings with it several deleted scenes, including one you can watch below. In the scene, Jake Johnson‘s Peter B. Parker tries once again to offer some heartfelt advice to Miles Morales (Shameik Moore). Peter still hasn’t mastered the whole “mentor” thing yet, but the advice he offers is surprisingly good.

After his Oscar-nominated turn as a down-and-out boxer in the original Rocky, Sylvester Stallone largely spent the next decade cultivating a muscled-up action hero image, competing with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the box office, and generally turning grounded characters like Rocky Balboa and John Rambo into practically unbeatable tough guys on the big screen.

We bring our 2019 Oscar predictions to a close with our final ballot, which this year is a two-part event. If you haven’t been following this entire series and are just jumping in at the end, you may not have noticed that we don’t just our predictions for what will win each award. We also offer up what we think should win. Sometimes that means calling an audible and adding our own nominee. Most of the time, it means speaking a little truth to power.

Vue Cinemas is one of the biggest movie theater chains in the United Kingdom, and they are not happy with the BAFTAs, the British equivalent of the Oscars. The British organization gave Alfonso Cuarón‘s movie Roma plenty of recognition, including the coveted award for Best Film. But since it’s a Netflix movie, Vue Cinemas is crying foul. In fact, they’re so mad about the situation that they’re threatening to pull support from the BAFTAs if they continue to support the streaming service’s endeavors in cinema.

Kevin Smith posted a new picture from the set of Jay & Silent Bob Reboot and it features the tease of a fan favorite return.
