If the Dark Universe is being reborn, I’m glad it’s through Blumhouse Productions. Producer Jason Blum has always prioritized a good story over a simple premise, and now we will get to see what he can do with The Invisible Man from director Leigh Whannell.
The film will see Elisabeth Moss as a wife who escapes from her abusive husband, only to find out that he may be haunting her as an invisible man. Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen also star. Check out the trailer below.
Remakes simply can’t be helped. So in order to help a remake from feeling repetitious, it’s going to have to offer an interesting twist in order to keep things fresh. In the case of What Men Want, a re-imagining of the Mel Gibson-starring comedy vehicle What Women Want, we see Taraji P. Henson take the lead as a woman with the ability to hear men’s most inner thoughts.
An official trailer for the film has been released by Paramount, and you can check it out below.
The first Jack Reacher was a modest and unexpected hit; in fact, it almost did not get a sequel. But because it went on to gross over $200 million worldwide, Paramount had enough faith in it to push a sequel for it.
Tom Cruise returns to reprise the titular character who makes the rules rather than follows them. Now we get to see more of his take no prisoners attitude in an all new IMAX trailer. Check it out below.
Paramount Pictures has released a trailer for the sequel to 2012’s Jack Reacher.
The sequel, which is titled Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, once again stars Tom Cruise in the title role as he returns to Virginia to meet up with the head of his former unit, only to discover that she’s not there. Also starring is Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Holt McCallany (Fight Club, Three Kings), and Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton, TURN: Washington’s Spies).

On the surface, many biopics based on a music artist or group will probably follow the same old Behind the Music narrative of the successes, hardships, and downfalls of said career. Of course, the subject of those episodic documentaries have had some sort of significance, but few have had as much of an impact both in the music industry and culturally as NWA.
In F. Gary Gray‘s Straight Outta Compton, we see a dramatized version of the rise and fall of the rap group whose significance resonates even 30-plus years after their first studio album of the same name. It was because of NWA’s groundbreaking music that the world learned about Compton, CA, and South Central Los Angeles. But the film also covers what went on when the music stopped, revealing that meteoric success can’t stop an inevitable disbanding.
