“Hold onto your butts,” United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) proclaims as he and his squad act as a military escort for an expedition team that charts a newly discovered island. You may have heard that line before in Jurassic Park, but the anxiousness that swells over before the outcome is the same nonetheless. In fact, that’s the kind of feeling you get when watching Kong: Skull Island. The unconventional story of the King of the Monsters doesn’t rehash the story that has been retold countless times; instead, it focuses solely on the island itself and the monsters that inhabit it. Check out the full review below.

‘Kong Skull Island’ Trailer: There’s A Reason Why Kong Is King On This Island
  |  @   |  

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the upcoming Kong: Skull Island is that the film is a period piece, that takes place almost entirely on the titular island. Set in the 1970s, an expedition team sets out to chart the recently discovered island only to find out that there are dark secrets and scary beasts that roam the land.

Previous trailers pretty much set the narrative and loose connections to the King of Monsters universe, that Warner Bros and Legendary are creating, but now this new trailer is all about the action between the humans killing the oversized monsters and Kong, who is king of the island.

Check out the newest trailer below.

The movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer), and stars Tom Hiddleston (Thor, Crimson Peak), Brie Larson (Room, United States of Tara), Samuel L.

The new trailer is only slightly longer than the first trailer’s 2:19 run time, but includes a bunch of good looks at King Kong, who we previously only had one good peek at in that recent image, as well as some other creatures who call Skull Island home. In addition to the new trailer, a pair of new posters have also been released. Continue below to check them out.

Movie Review: Keanu
  |  @   |  

Keanu
Director: Peter Atencio
Screenwriter: Jordan Peele, Alex Rubens
Cast: Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Method Man, Luis Guzmán, Nia Long, Will Forte, Tiffany Haddish, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Jamar Malachi Neighbors, Jason Mitchell
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R | 100 Minutes
Release Date: April 29, 2016

“We in the market right now for, like, a gangster pet.”

Directed by Peter Atencio (Key & Peele, The Last Man on Earth), Keanu is the age-old story of two friends who pose as ruthless gangbangers to retrieve a stolen kitten named Keanu, which – as we all know – is Hawaiian for “cool breeze over the mountains.”

Jordan Peele stars as Rell, a soft-spoken stoner whose life is forever changed when the most precious of kittens shows up at his doorstep. A graphic artist, Rell makes little Keanu the subject of his next artistic endeavor: a calendar where the kitten plays assorted characters from iconic movies like The Shining, Heat, and New Jack City. But when Cheddar (Method Man), the leader of the notorious 17th Street Blips, steals the cat, Rell and his straight-laced cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) are forced into action.
