ScreenCrave is Signing Off ... For Now

Dear Readers, ScreenCrave is going on hiatus. After years of covering television and film, we’re taking a break from regularly scheduled blogging. As of today (June 20th), all content will pause until further notice. It’s unclear if and when the site will return. But don’t be sad, we’ve enjoyed our time interacting with you and [...]

Think Like a Man Too: Movie Review

Think Like a Man Too has big shoes to fill. Its predecessor, Think Like a Man, was a box office success and fan favorite. The sequel maintains what made the first film a hit, but a few unnecessary additions keep it from greatness. The Players: Director: Tim Story Screenwriters: Keith Merryman, David A. Newman, Steve [...]

Box Office Roundup: "Go Shove Yourself, San Diego"

So, though we haven’t made a huge deal of it, Screencrave will be turning out the lights. Maybe for a while, maybe permanently (we should have some Comic-con coverage coming next month). Which means my eight-year tenure (including my time at Chud) of writing about box office is coming to an end. And I have [...]

'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Hires Rian Johnson to Write and Direct, Will Be Involved with 'IX'

Rian Johnson, director of Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper, is your Star Wars: Episode VIII director. Currently there are conflicting reports about his involvement in the final film in the new trilogy, but he will at least be involved to write a treatment for Episode IX. And our response to this is that it’s [...]

'Better Call Saul' Premiere Pushed Back To Early 2015, Already Cleared For A Second Season

As fans of good television know, AMC giveth, and AMC taketh away (actually, I don’t know if that’s true, but it’s a nice opening sentence for today’s news bit, so roll with me here, please).  Those of us waiting to catch the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul got some good news yesterday… and some [...]

Box Office Predictions: For the Third Time This Year, Kevin Hart Tops the Box Office

Do you know this face? Has our culture been so divided up into niches (or, that is to say, segregated) that there are people who don’t know who Kevin Hart is? Because you’re looking at the face of the biggest modern movie star in the game. Currently Hart has only starred in one movie that [...]

Ben Affleck's Solo 'Batman' Movie Rumored For 2019

There are a lot of rumors circling Warner Bros.’ DC release date schedule. Not only do we have Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League coming, but rumor has it that the studio also plans to release standalone movies for Shazam!, Sandman, Wonder Woman, and a Flash/Green Lantern team up before 2018. But [...]

'Star Wars: Episode 7': Harrison Ford's Leg Broken By Millennium Falcon Door

Last week, word dropped that Harrison Ford had been injured while filming Star Wars: Episode VII. The details of said injury suggested that the actor–who’s reprising his role as Han Solo–had been hurt by the Millennium Falcon, the spacecraft he commands in the franchise. Now, Ford’s publicist has revealed that it was the actor’s leg [...]

Damon Houx's Alternate Top Hundred Films of All Time

So, this week I released a list of the hundred greatest movies of all time. Yeah, that’s pretentious, but listmaking is good to get people curious about cinema. But it hurt to leave so many great films off the list, and some you leave off because if they’re not in the top whatever, it doesn’t [...]

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Final Trailer: War is Coming

The latest and final trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes promises all out war. With humans worn out and seeing the simians as their enemy, with the world completely destroyed by a flu, tempers are high and things are going to get ugly. As a huge fan of this series, which has [...]

'Transformers 5' 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' 'Star Trek 3' and 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 2' Due in 2016

Movies! Now more than ever! Paramount has started to date their 2016 release calendar, and besides the films that are already in production or have been announced, they’re now saying that yes, we’ll be getting a fifth Transformers film in two years’ time. So Paramount has already announced that 2015 will offer the SpongeBob SquarePants [...]

'The Bourne' "Whatever They Call the Next One" Bumps to 2016

Look, I’m the sort of person who has been checking the box office daily for a couple weeks now. And it’s for one reason: I want to see if and when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 crosses the $200 Million mark (it hasn’t yet, and is limping to get there). Sony is locked into a franchise [...]

Best New Indie Trailers: 'The Zero Theorem,' 'The Libertador,' 'The Immediate Unknown,' and More

We tend to hate on Hollywood studios because of the movie projects they choose to fund (Transformers 4, anyone?). So much of typical Hollywood product tends to be huge, expensive spectacles with little-to-no story, heavy special effects and poor acting. So, we at ScreenCrave have decided to help jump behind the indie film. Below you’ll [...]

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': Shredder Is Revealed With Typical Michael Bay Subtlety

While I’m not particularly excited to see the Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Libesman-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, I will admit to being casually curious about the film’s redesign of the iconic characters from my childhood.  So far, we’ve seen the turtles and April O’Neil, today, we finally get a look at the franchise’s primary villain, [...]

Damon Houx's Top 100 Films of All Time (Part 2 of 2)

Writing lists, the actual act of ranking films, is absurd. For most of us who aren’t OCD, there’s really no way to rank one film above another. That said, yesterday I ranked my bottom fifty or so best films out of a hundred. So let’s finish this list out like a boss, yeah? 49 Five [...]

'Scooby-Doo': Warner Bros. Will Reboot The Film Franchise Because Of Course They Will

Today happens to be a day that ends with a “Y” so  you know what that means—an news item about a movie studio with plans to remake a film or to reboot an old TV show as a film.  And lo, today you get both, as Warner Bros. is now hard at work on rebooting [...]

Mark Ruffalo's Hulk May Get His Own Adventure

A while back it was rumored that The Avengers: Age of Ultron would be building up to a Planet Hulk type movie,  and now there’s more gas on that fire as current Hulk Mark Ruffalo has recently suggested Marvel is now open to a third Hulk stand-alone adventure. Ruffalo told Digital Spy “I think they [...]

New 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Trailer Gets Serious

The new trailer for James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy is nothing like the first. It’s much more serious and informative, but more importantly, it’s 100% better. If you weren’t all that excited about this superhero movie, then this new trailer might do the trick. Watch it below. The new clip offers tons of new [...]

'The Expendables 3' Trailer: These Guys Are Nuts

Chances are that your favorite action movie star is in The Expendables 3, unless it’s Jean Claude Van Damme in which case you can go to the nearest Target and purchase The Expendables 2 for $7. But, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Staham, Harrison Ford, and even Mel Gibson, those guys will all show up [...]

DVD and Blu-ray Picks for June 17 - 23

Criterion is really cranking them out this week, while two of the best films of the year also hit Blu-ray this week, along with one of Netflix’s most buzzed-about shows. Not a bad haul. New: The Grand Budapest Hotel: Wes Anderson’s latest film is a triumph that uses its huge cast and multiple aspect ratios [...]
