Universal Picture built up THE MUMMY starring Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe as the rebirth of the classic Universal monsters from the 1930s, but it it’s far from that. Maybe Universal should’ve kept this buried. So how did it unravel?
The good news is TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT is an improvement over the last three TRANSFORMER movies, but the bad news is the connect-the-dots plot may fry your brain circuits by the end. The targeted movie crowd (young boys) will be distracted by the shiny toys and robots so they won't mind. Isabela Moner, a new human-sized Transformer and Sir Anthony Hopkins are nice additions to this tired franchise.

Be prepared to hear a lot of screaming as our driver takes some harrowing turns around the racetrack at top speeds. I'm holding on for dear life.
What man (or woman) wouldn’t pay to roll around a shag carpet with Scarlett Johansson. Luckily for actor Enrique Murciano he got a paycheck to do just that in the raunchy comedy ROUGH NIGHT starring Johansson, Jillian Bell (22 JUMP STREET), Kate McKinnon (SNL), Zoe Kravitz (BIG LITTLE LIES) and Ilana Glazer (BROAD CITY). Murciano tells CineMovie says he was in awe of all the ladies but mostly Jillian Bell who he calls a comedic ‘genius.’

Since Captain Phasma didn’t get enough screen time in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, so Marvel Comics is dedicating a comic book to the First Order baddie that takes place between THE FORCE AWAKENS and the next STAR WARS film, THE LAST JEDI. And yes this implies she survived the destruction of the Starkiller Base in FORCE AWAKENS. Check out the art from the first comic book.
Alice Braga's Teresa will eventually be the Queen of the South in USA series, but she's still got her training wheels on and learning how to run a drug empire from the current queen, Camila, played by Mexican actress Veronica Falcon. Falcon's character on the USA series is like nothing we've seen on television especially for a female character in a position of power.

The new trailer and poster are out, and this horror movie 2.0 looks ten times more scarier than the original. Watch!
Mandy Moore and Claire Holt acted underwater for 90% of the movie for 47 METERS DOWN, and it wasn't easy. The actresses spent 6 to 7 hours under water for weeks during the production.

Like in the movie, they could experience serious health issues if they weren't careful. The heroines of 47 METER DOWN explain their experience to CineMovie and why they had to yell "cut" to the man swimming around in a plastic shark head.

The Cuban-American actor resisted playing another crime boss when first approached for a role in USA's QUEEN OF THE SOUTH season 2, but he tells CineMovie a QUEEN OF THE SOUTH producer convinced the RAY DONOVAN star it would be worth his while. Watch the interview below.
