Avengers: Endgamestars Tom Holland and Chris Prattare back together again in no time flat, as they are moving “onward” with a new animation project.
Directed by Monsters University filmmaker Dan Scanlon, Onward centers on two elf brothers named Ian and Barley (Pratt, Holland) who attempt to resurrect their father only to summon just his lower torso!! The siblings have just one day to bring back the other half of their dad before the spell expires.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus chimes in as the kids’ mother, with Octavia Spencer providing the voice of the Manticore. In case you’re wondering, a manticore is a mixture of a bat, lion, and a scorpion!
With Monsters University grossing over $744 million worldwide, one would expect Onward should also be a hit for Disney and Pixar. Watching Pratt and Holland trade one liners while they screw up spells should be a diverting enough experience.Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
If it’s true that you are what you eat, zombies must be really intelligent, right? Well, at least they’re the subject of some pretty smart humor in the new movie Zombieland: Double Tap. Jesse Eisenberg stars in the film — a sequel, of course, to 2009’s Zombieland — and told us he was really impressed at how deftly the script mixed both highbrow and lowbrow humor.

Zombieland: Double Tap opens in theaters next Friday.
Having starred for the last 12 years on The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco obviously became well-versed in all things comics-related. So when she heard about an animated Harley Quinn project under development, she went all in — not only did she sign on to voice the title role, she also decided to make it her first project as a producer.

Harley Quinn premieres November 29 on DC Universe.
When SirPatrick Stewart won the role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation back in the 1980s, he was virtually unknown in the United States, but very well known in his homeland of Britain. Since the British acting community tends to be rather tight-knit, we asked Stewart if he got a lot of support from his fellow UK thespians when he decided to try out for the part.

Star Trek: Picard will premiere January 23 on CBS All Access.
Funny thing about war movies — they usually aren’t funny. That’s why writer/director Taika Waititi wanted to do something different and unique with Jojo Rabbit, a comedy set in the World War II era. Oh yeah, and Waititi just happens to play Adolf Hitler in the movie. So, what exactly inspired Waititi to develop the project? (Click on the media bar below to hear Taika Waititi)
In Trick, Omar Epps plays Detective Mike Denver, a man who shot a killer named Patrick “Trick” Weaver” after he escaped police custody. The event occured in 2015 after Trick went on a murderous spree at a costume party, but then the succeeding Halloweens he reappears and commits more killings. Is this perpetrator the same person Denver killed several years back, or is there more than one murderer in the midst?
The picture is directed and co-written by Patrick Lussier, who’s best known for the Nicolas Cage feature Drive Angry and 2009’s My Bloody Valentine. Trick’s trailer reveals that it may be a slight homage to the Screamseries, and the feature does star two Scream vets (Epps and Jamie Kennedy who plays a character named Dr. Steven). Will Trick have a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor in the storyline, or will this be a straight up horror story? Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Trick hits theaters, On Demand and digital on October 18.
