This time of year makes me think of high school and that awesome, tingly sensation we all had right before school got out. Seems like I had that blissed-out feeling of hope the whole month of May, like something incredible was BOUND to happen that summer. That’s probably why I’m excited about Everything Everything. This tale of doomed love between a sick, home-bound girl (Amandla Stenberg) and her new neighbor (Nick Robinson) definitely would have appealed to 16-year-old me. I’m not proud to admit that I’ve had a gross old-lady crush on Nick Robinson ever since Kings of Summer, as well. So, do you want to pretend you’re back in high-school with me and see Everything Everything EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
When King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was pitched to the studios, it was described as Guy Ritchie’s Snatch meets The Lord of the Rings movies.
How freaking incredible does that sound?
This retelling of the Excalibur tale portrays King Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) as a street thug, roaming the back alleys of Londinium after losing his family and crown to an evil dictator (Jude Law). It’s supposedly the first in a six-part series, so you’d better go ahead and jump on the bandwagon now. Lucky for you, I’ve got passes to see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword EARLY and FOR FREE.

What do you do when you’re a movie series about kids (based on a book series about kids) and your stars get too old to play kids? Well, if you’re the Wimpy Kid series, you just get all-new kids.
Such is the case with Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, which introduces us to a brand new Greg, Rowley and, of course, Rodrick. They even gave us a new Mom and Dad, who are now played by Tom Everett Scott and Alicia Silverstone. That had to be a little weird for original Wimpy parents, Steve Zahn and Rachel Harris, who I guess have to play grandparents now?
Anyhow, I have Family 4-Packs to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul EARLY and FOR FREE. Continue reading →
The premise for Unforgettable terrifies me.
Your man’s EX, who is keep-her-away-from-rabbits-batsh*t CRAZY, gets him back by convincing him you’re the crazy one.
Chilling, right? Mostly because it wouldn’t take THAT much convincing before my husband would be squeezing me into a straight jacket.
The cast of Unforgettable makes it even more believable, with Rosario Dawson playing the NEW GIRLFRIEND and Katherine Heigl playing the EX. Rosario seems like a cool drinking buddy while Katherine would obviously burn all your shit to the ground, just for the cardio.
So, do you want to see Unforgettable EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
If you’re like me, you probably knew nothing about Going in Style until this very moment. Do yourself a favor and watch the trailer below so you’ll KNOW how badly you want to see this movie. Continue reading →
I think I’ve heard more about the Ghost in the Shell controversy than I’ve heard about the movie itself. See, Ghost in the Shell is based on a popular Japanese manga and the main character, Major, has always been considered Japanese. There were cries of whitewashing when Scarlett Johansson was cast in the role, but not everyone agrees. In fact, the director of the original anime, Mamoru Oshii, had this to say to IGN.com: Continue reading →
Jessica Chastain once made the mistake of responding to my tweet. She and Edgar Wright (Director of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) were having a Twitter-chat when I slipped in a comment. They both cyber-chuckled, which sent me over the moon (far more excitement than any grown woman should get from celebrity tweets) AND launched my still-burning Jessica Chastain crush. She’s currently starring in The Zookeeper’s Wife, which tells the true story of Polish zookeepers who risked their lives during the German invasion to save people, as well as animals. It looks fantastic and since Jessica and I are such good friends, I’m giving away passes to see The Zookeeper’s Wife EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
You thought you didn’t need a big-screen reboot of the classic TV show CHiPs and…well…you probably didn’t, but you’re getting one anyway. This CHiPs stars Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as members of the California Highway Patrol, but their origin story has been changed completely. We also get a visit from Kristen Bell, but I don’t think there will be any adorable sloth-moments this time around. If you’d like to see CHiPs EARLY and FOR FREE, click HERE to get your passes, then watch the trailer below. (CHiPs opens nationwide 3/24 and you can buy tickets HERE.)
The first Trainspotting wasn’t a horror movie, but it still scared the bejeezus out of me. Few images have stuck with me like Mark Renton’s dive into “the worst toilet in Scotland,” or…dear God, that dead baby crawling across the ceiling. Despite my love for Trainspotting, I wasn’t exactly thrilled to hear they were making a sequel. Then I heard the original cast was coming back, including Ewan McGregor and Kelly MacDonald. I also found out that Danny Boyle was returning to direct, after winning an Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire. Despite all of this, I didn’t get truly excited about Trainspotting 2 until I saw the trailer below. It looks PHENOMENAL. Continue reading →
Is it just me, or did Kong: Skull Island come out of nowhere?
How did we miss this?
Maybe we were all too busy talking about Beauty and the Beast or the insanity at the Oscars to notice, but another honest-to-goodness King Kong movie is coming out.
It’s even got a great cast, with Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly. Kong: Skull Island looks surprisingly GOOD, too. So seriously…
how did we miss this?
Well, it doesn’t really matter because I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE! Continue reading →
