The Rock Gets Ready for Motion Capture in a Photo From the Set of ‘Rampage’

Dwayne Johnson’s new movie sounds pretty bananas, mostly because it involves a giant mutated gorilla going on a, well, rampage with two other oversized beasts. The Rock recently revealed the synopsis of his new movie, and has officially begun production. Good news: there’s going to be a lot of motion capture.

Watch Mark Hamill Surprise Some ‘Star Wars’ Superfans For a Good Cause

For a guy whose entire acting career has been overshadowed by one role he played decades ago, Mark Hamill’s got a pretty good attitude. He loves Star Wars, and what’s more, he loves how much the people who love Star Wars love Star Wars. A regular fixture at conventions and other fan events, Hamill regularly gets in on the fun and mingles with his adoring public. And in a new video from Lucasfilms’ charity arm Force for Change, he gives a handful of diehard devotees the surprise of their lives.

Melissa McCarthy Will Team With a Puppet for Raunchy Buddy Cop Comedy ‘The Happytime Murders’

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, because you almost certainly haven’t — think The Heat, but instead of tough cookie Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy teams with a street-smart puppet to bust criminal scum. Step aside, Anomalisa, a new puppet comedy has arrived to freak out audiences and challenge the boundaries of what can be considered marketable for a mass audience.

Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines to Deck the Halls in ‘Bad Moms Christmas’ Sequel

But it’s true that the upcoming sequel A Bad Moms Christmas will explore the bad moms that originally birthed the bad moms we came to know and love in last year’s sleeper hit. Variety reported last night that a power trio of Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, and Cheryl Hines have all joined the cast of the Yuletide-appropriate installment of the Bad Moms franchise, and the item reveals that they form the first generation of moms who dared to be bad. The new film revolves around one unending visit home for Christmas from the bad moms’ worse moms, with Baranski tormenting Mila Kunis, Sarandon nagging Kathryn Hahn, and (the 51-year-old) Hines portraying the mother of (the 36-year-old) Kristen Bell. Will the revelation that Bell’s Kiki was raised by a 15-year-old number among the twists in the new film? Maybe, but probably not.

We Promise These Ridley Scott Facts Are Not a Body of Lies

You definitely know Alien, and you love the series’ long-running heroine, Ellen Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver. But did you know that in the original script for Alien, Ripley wasn’t written as a female role? It was director Ridley Scott who had the idea to make the character female, and to cast a relative unknown, because he thought (correctly) that audiences would assume this young woman was doomed, leading to a surprise when she becomes the survivor of the xenomorph’s attack. That’s just one of the alienating facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

Amazon Gives Free Prime (and Popcorn) to Residents of Manchester-by-the-Sea

This is a movies web site, so the focal point of this article will definitely be how Manchester by the Sea has benefitted the actual citizenry of Manchester-by-the-Sea, but let’s not bury the lede. Amazon gave everyone living there a free year of Prime membership, and we’ll get back to that in a moment, because the real story here is that they also gave everyone free popcorn. Because Amazon makes food now. Apparently, the internet super-retailer recently launched something called Wickedly Prime, a line of snacks, teas, and what their web site calls ‘sweet spreads.’ I’m not quite sure what, but an automated drone air-dropping a crate of Internet Food right at my doorstep feels like the first step towards something major.

‘Triple Frontier’ Not Dead Yet, Gets an Assist From Netflix and the Affleck Brothers

Triple Frontier has had one of the weirdest and most fraught production histories in recent memory, and while Paramount axed the film from its schedule three weeks ago, it’s not over yet. J.C. Chandor’s film, which was supposed to star Channing Tatum, Tom Hardy, and Mahershala Ali (after it was supposed to be directed by Kathryn Bigelow some years ago), has lost two of its actors and its release date, but it just got a few helping hands from some surprising sources.

These New ‘Wonder Woman’ Photos Will Hold You Over Until Tonight’s Sneak Peek on ‘Gotham’

Although Warner Bros. released a handful of TV spots late last week, there’s some concern among fans about the lack of promotion for Wonder Woman, which hits theaters in just a few short weeks. In comparison to other big-budget blockbusters (and superhero films in particular), the marketing for Wonder Woman has been relatively low-key — strange, since it’s such a highly-anticipated summer release for several reasons, not the least of which is that it’s the first solo female superhero film in over a decade.
