Being a teenager isn’t easy… even in LEGOLAND

lego ninjago

By day, Lloyd and his ninja friends are ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters.

In The Lego Ninjago Movie we see Lloyd, shunned by everyone for being the son of an evil warlord, seek to defeat him with the help of his fellow ninjas. No one knows the evil warlord Garmadon (voiced by Justin Theroux), aka The Worst Guy Ever, better than his ex-wife, Koko (voiced by Olivia Munn), and when it comes to their son Lloyd (voiced by Dave Franco), the eternally optimistic mother just wants to help him survive adolescence.

Olivia Munn talks to Collider about why she wanted to be a part of The Lego Ninjago Movie, and why Koko was such fun to play…

Collider: What sold you on The LEGO Ninjago Movie and made you want to be a part of it?

OLIVIA MUNN: Well, I didn’t really have to be sold. I hadn’t seen LEGO Batman yet, when I signed on for this, but I had seen the first LEGO movie. What’s so great about the LEGO movies is that, from the get-go, they were made in a way that wasn’t just adult-friendly, but you don’t have to have a kid with you to go see them. They’re edgy and funny and clever. The toys are the toys, and I love that about these movies. It really allows for the actors to bring so much life to them, and I really love that. It was so much fun!

Blade Runner 30 years later…

Blade-Runner-2049

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

Harrison Ford—wearing a gray button-down shirt, dark jeans, and a Ford-tough grimace—is shooting a crucial encounter in Blade Runner 2049. For the first time in more than three decades, Ford is reprising his role as Rick Deckard, the piano-plinking, hard-drinking cop from Ridley Scott’s 1982 Blade Runner.

Meanwhile, there’s a new breed of replicants—the series’ term for androids—being built by a mysterious inventor named Wallace (Jared Leto), who’s aided by a devoted employee, Luv (Sylvia Hoeks). That’s pretty much all the 2049 team will tell me, no matter how politely I ask. “I’m not even sure I’m allowed to say I had a good time making it,” Gosling jokes.

As Ford dashes repeatedly across the set and Gosling continues smashing through the wall, Villeneuve stands outside of the faux condo, his short gray-black hair looking early-­morning ­tousled. When Villeneuve is satisfied with a shot, he tends to repeat his words, patternlike, in a rich Quebecois accent. (“When you hear three deeeplys—‘I deeeply, deeeply, deeeply love it’—you know you’re in the sweet spot,” Gosling says.) After the dog finally gets the timing right, Villeneuve puts his hands in his pockets and nods happily: “Greatgreatgreatgreatgreat.”

Duck Duck Goose –family fun movie for 2018

duck-duck-goose

There’s nothing better than a family trip to the movies… especially when it’s a comedy animation movie from the makers of Shrek! Duck Duck Goose is making a splash Easter 2018.

In Duck Duck Goose, a high-flying bachelor goose named Peng (voiced by Jim Gaffigan) is injured in flight and finds himself saddled with two adorably hilarious and demanding ducklings (voiced by Zendaya and Lance Lim), on a long journey south that will turn this scrappy threesome into a family.

Peng is a freewheeling bachelor goose who’d rather do anything than practice for the upcoming migration. He thinks he’s better than everyone else and spends his time attempting crazy stunts at even crazier speeds. In one such stunt, Peng flies too near the ground, hits a flock of ducklings and separates brother and sister, Chao and Chi, from the rest. In this unlikely meeting, Peng will begin a journey that will break his wing and nearly break his heart as he grows to understand the power of unconditional love in the form of two ducklings, who likewise grow to see him as the best father they could ever have.

Watch out for pop legend Elton John in Kingsman: The Golden Circle!

Kingsman - Elton

Not only do we have Colin Firth’s mysterious return from the dead in this Kingsman 2 movie, there will also be an appearance from flamboyant pop star, Sir Elton John!

The adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’s comic book introduced us to the titular group of superspies and Colin Firth’s badass secret agent in Kingsman: The Secret Service, back in 2014. Now it’s back, with a sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, with another wise-cracking, ass-kicking, all-star cast, including Halle Berry, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges.

When the Kingsman headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.

Digital Spy asked Eggsy actor Taron Egerton what Elton John brings to the movie…

“You’ve never seen him like this, he’s hilarious in it,” Taron told us.

“It’s quite significant, as well. It’s not a walk-on. He’s there. He’s in the movie.”

Are you ready for IT? The most terrifying horror movie this year

It (2)

Are you ready to watch IT? It’s pretty scary, even Stephen King wasn’t prepared for how good IT is!  Of course it will be no suprise that a movie about a killer clown is going to be rather dark and scary – when you combine this with the legendary horror writer Stephen King then you know something disturbing and terrifying is going to happen.

In fact British actor 24 year old Will Poulter, currently starring with Star Wars leading man John Boyega in Detroit, a particularly dark and, yes, disturbing look at race relations in inner city America. It sounds like he can handle anything and yet originally cast as Pennywise Poulter pulled out of the movie because it was too much for him.

In the most disturbing scene in the latest trailer for IT, a bathroom erupts in huge spurts of blood, gushing upwards to soak the ceiling and walls, as well as the terrified figure kneeling in terror… That might be just too much for most people!

Detroit – A long watch but a worthwhile watch

Detroit (1)

Detroit, a superbly crafted movie by director Kathryn Bigelow, is one of the most unmissable, frightening, shocking films this summer. This gritty, uncompromising story is based around the true events of the summer of 1967 where three young African American me were murdered at the Algiers Motel in Detroit.

The movie Detroit uses a mix of archive footage from the events of 1967 with some incredible cinematography from Barry Ackroyd (Jason Bourne, Captain Phillips). This meshes seamlessly, and when coupled with Kathryn Bigelow’s superb direction creates an ultra-realistic feel and literally puts you in the middle of the horrifying situation.

On that fateful evening, Larry Reed (Algee Smith) lead singer of the professional, black R&B group The Dramatics, along with his friend Fred Temple (Jacob Latimore) are involved in an incident which saw his tour bus attacked by rioters. Separated from the rest of his band member, Larry takes Fred to the Algers motel, where they rent a room for the night. It is there where they meet two white girls, Julie (Hannah Murray) and Karen (Kaitlyn Dever), who introduce them to their friends Carl Cooper (Jason Michell) and Aubrey Pollard (Nathan Davis Jr)… Read more from The Hollywood News
