The new trailer for Superhero Face Punch answers a Very Important Question regarding Wonder Woman: Will she fly an invisible jet? Answer: No, or at least, not yet.

Every time I turn on the TV there’s a commercial on for The Finest Hours. It’s about Pendleton rescue mission attempt in 1952. Two oil tankers were destroyed in bad weather and the Coast Guard, along with citizens on a surfboat, saved almost all the passengers. The film follows the release of Chris Hemsworth’s In The Heart Of The Sea, a different story entirely, obviously, but for some reason I can’t tell them apart. Full Story

When I was a kid my orthodontist had arcade games in the waiting room and TVs at every dental station, so you could watch movies while having your braces tightened. There I would be, suffering through intense pain and watching Homeward Bound, learning about friendship and teamwork and the ceaseless torment of modern orthodontia. Full Story

Lainey sent me a trailer for a movie premiering at Sundance this weekend, Brahman Naman, a sex comedy that’s a British/Indian co-production. It’s about Naman, a college quiz show champ who’s trying to lose his virginity while traveling to a national quiz challenge. It looks like a cross between British comedy/movie star prediction machine Starter for 10 and American Pie. Full Story
