Way back in 2012 (or at least it feels way back), Netflix and Disney struck a deal for all of Disney’s movies — including Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm — to stream exclusively on Netflix Instant. According to the terms of their agreement, the deal wouldn’t kick in until 2016, which just so happens to be the year in which we are currently living. As announced today, Netflix will officially begin streaming Disney films in September, but that doesn’t mean the studio’s entire library will magically appear in your Instant browser.
As far as source material goes, classic Atari games would be categorized under “things least likely to inspire a movie,” along with objects like vacuum cleaners and steel beams. But the power of nostalgia is strong, and Hollywood is quite fond of taking unlikely properties from your childhood and turning them into movies — like Battleship and Trolls. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Atari’s Missile Command and Centipede games are heading to the big screen.
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot won’t be the only Ghostbusters movie hitting theaters this summer. If you’re itching to revisit Ivan Reitman’s 1984 comedy classic, then you might want to wait until June, when the original Ghostbusters returns to the big screen. The special re-release honors both the 32nd anniversary (sure, why not) of the film, as well as the release of Feig’s reboot, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
Believe me when I tell you that the absolute best thing about Keanu is the titular kitten, who doesn’t just steal each scene he’s in — he totally hijacks them. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough Keanu in Keanu, but this new spoof trailer for Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s upcoming comedy rectifies that situation, giving us a version of the film that stars nothing but cats.
It’s been a little quiet on the Ghostbusters front in the last few weeks, but Sony has unveiled some colorful new banners featuring three of the characters from Paul Feig’s upcoming film. Melissa McCarthy is strangely absent, but Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig each get their very own promo image, blasting away with their cool new proton packs.
Sure, you have plenty of movie options in theaters next month, with Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse and everything in between (High-Rise. Go see High-Rise), but if you're looking to stay home there's lots of new stuff for you to check out. Whether you're looking to rent or add to your collection, read on for our guide to the new DVD and Blu-ray releases arriving in May.
We have a pretty stacked summer ahead of us, kicking off in May with Captain America: Civil War, followed by the (hopefully) equally epic X-Men: Apocalypse. The mutants of First Class and Days of Future Past are no longer the new kids on the block, as younger versions of Jean Grey, Scott Summers and more are getting in on the action in the upcoming sequel. To better familiarize you with the lineup, 20th Century Fox has released several new character posters which boast various mutants old and new along with their respective powers.
We’ve seen the trailers. We’ve met several of Dory’s new aquatic co-stars. But now Pixar is backing things up just a bit to show us how Finding Dory made the leap from page to screen, with some gorgeous new concept art from the long-awaited sequel to Finding Nemo. The artwork primarily features Ellen DeGeneres’ lovably absent-minded Dory and Hank the octopus — a new character voiced by Ed O’Neill — as well as some landscapes and beautiful underwater scenes.
The summer movie season is about a month away, kicking off with Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and continuing through August with Suicide Squad. There are other, non-superhero movies hitting theaters this summer, if you can believe it, and we have some new photos from those and several of this year’s other blockbuster offerings. You’re probably already properly excited for a lot of these movies thanks to their trailers, but if you’re eager for another sneak peek, these photos should do the trick.
A couple of new parents facing off with a house full of frat bros is a pretty funny idea (and made for a pretty funny movie), but there’s something even more inherently hilarious about the notion of a grown man and his wife battling it out with sorority sisters. That seems like a fairly easy sequel concept for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, but it’s hard not to laugh at Seth Rogen and Chloe Moretz violently glaring at each other in this new poster.
It’ll be several more days before we find out if Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice managed to break any box office records (early predictions suggest it might not), but Zack Snyder’s superhero epic has already broke at least one record: the film now holds the record for highest ticketing pre-sales…at Fandango, anyway.
With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hitting theaters this month and Captain America: Civil War arriving in May, April offers us a chance to catch our breath a bit between superhero movies and steel ourselves for the blockbuster onslaught of summer. Next month brings exciting films like The Jungle Book and Key & Peele’s Keanu, along with the totally bonkers Huntsman: Winter’s War and a few thrilling indies (Green Room, anyone?). There’s much more in store in our guide to April’s new movie releases.
