Mad scientists have existed since the beginning of cinema, and The Lazarus Effect has zero problem borrowing from earlier films. It also snatches crumbs from The Exorcist and Paranormal Activity, among others. But! It's got an unusually good cast, fast pacing, and some decent frights.
We really enjoyed the trailer for The Lazarus Effect. It's got a handful of our favorite actors messing around with mad science and things they shouldn't be, conjuring up all sorts of problems. Watch.
Movies and cartoons collide this week, as Quorra (Olivia Wilde's character in Tron: Legacy) appears on Tron: Uprising. We also see the fruits of Skrull labor pay off this week on Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and what happens when Bender joins the ranks of the paparazzi on Futurama.
Want to see why we're excited about Andrew "Gattaca" Niccol's In Time? Check out this international trailer, which shows just how harsh a critique this futuristic thriller is of the gap between rich and poor.
Body-switching comedy movies have become a big enough genre, in themselves, that these films no longer even need to try and tell the story of two people who switch bodies. That's what I took away from The Change-Up, the new movie starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman.
Andrew Niccol's latest dystopian mind-bender, In Time, has a brand new trailer. And now we get a good look at the mother-son relationship between Olivia Wilde and Justin Timberlake.
Olivia Wilde is quickly becoming the biggest leading lady in science fiction, so what's the next role she wants to tackle? A female Captain Kirk!
Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman have revamped the body-trading classic Freaky Friday into a swear-filled adult comedy, The Change-Up. And if you don't think two grown men swapping bodies can be hysterically funny, this trailer may surprise you.
With Cowboys & Aliens, Iron Man director Jon Favreau attempts to mash up the Western genre with science fiction. How well does it work? We've seen the first two reels, and they conjure a robust John Wayne sensibility.
We're pretty sure that the magic mirror would tell Olivia Wilde that yes, she's the fairest one of all. Check out this new portrait of Tron Legacy's siren as the Evil Queen from Snow White.
Back in 1982, Tron zapped us into a whole new world of storytelling. You can still feel the love, and excitement, on every frame of that movie. So it's sad that Tron Legacy turns those thrills into snoozes. Spoilers ahead.
The draw of Tron Legacy may be its flashy computer world, but the filmmakers also imbued it with religious and philosophical themes. Stars Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges filled us in on the metaphysics girding the Grid.
In the official music video for the song "Derezzed," Daft Punk wanders into Flynn's Arcade, and an arcade game transports them to the world of 1980s Tron, but with 8-bit knights, falcons, and horses. And look out for Quorra!
Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig put some old timey bullets into the alien hide of a mysterious space invader in the first-ever trailer for Cowboys & Aliens. It's a first look at Jon Favreau's alien/western mashup movie.
We got an early look at Wednesday's Cowboys & Aliens trailer. Daniel Craig's alien-fighting cowboy puts James Bond to shame; Harrison Ford has never been nastier; and this really is both a serious western and serious alien invasion movie.
Last night, we watched a collection of new Tron Legacy clips, which showcased Daft Punk's cameo and disc wars — but most importantly, the drama between programs and humans. Can the new Tron's characters compete with its bright neon visuals?
The upcoming I'm.mortal, in which everyone stops aging at 25 but has to pay for each additional year of their life, is making for some wonderfully weird casting...and the latest casting news completely redefines the concept of the hot mom.
Legions of Deadpool fans are waiting anxiously for the Merc With A Mouth's spin-off movie, hoping it'll redress Wade Wilson's mistreatment in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But Ryan Reynolds told us he'll either star in Deadpool or R.I.P.D... but not both.
