To really delve into Father of the Year would be both a waste of your time and mine. Netflix exclusives are elusive and baffling at best. Seemingly dropping down from the cinematic gods themselves onto our TV screens with little to no fanfare or anticipation. We are far beyond the realm of hit and miss, more so in the age of a constant state of bizarre. The dumping ground of studio productions has only hailed one or two inspiring pieces of cinema, most notably in Alex Garland’s Annihilation, but with each positive success, a Cloverfield: Paradox waits in the winds to pounce upon significant interest with disastrous outcomes. Its the nucleus of Netflix produced content that worries the most.

Little Mermaid Live-Action Trailer Beats Disney to the Punch

Little Mermaid Live-Action Trailer Beats Disney to the Punch
Nearly 30 years after Disney's timeless animated classic The Little Mermaid hit theaters, the studio announced last year that they are putting together a new live-action adaptation with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Universal was also readying their own live-action adaptation with Chloe Moretz set to star, before she dropped out. While it remains to be seen what will happen with those projects, there is a new live-action Little Mermaid movie coming out later this year, and the first trailer has been released today.

This Little Mermaid movie comes from Conglomerate Media and Kingsway Productions, with the trailer debuting on YouTube. The project doesn't have a release date set at this time, but it is expected to debut later this year, possibly this summer, although it remains to be seen when a release date will be announced. This story takes a much different approach to the original Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale.

Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for

Never judge a movie by it's premise.

Image Entertainment has released a new trailer for The Cobbler. Maybe it will change your mind about what the film actually is, or isn't.

Did Sandler's Latest Comedy Have One of His Biggest Debuts Ever?

Adam Sandler Grown Ups 2: One of Sandler’s biggest domestic openings ever? Directed by Dennis Dugan, and starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Kevin James, Grown Ups 2 opened with $41.5 million from 3,491 North American locations this past weekend, July 12-14, according to weekend box-office actuals found at Box Office Mojo.

Although a more modest gross than studio estimates indicated, $41.5 million was enough for the $80 million-budgeted Grown Ups 2 to easily beat Guillermo del Toro’s $190 million-budgeted sci-fi actioner Pacific Rim, which took in $37.28 million by Sunday evening — also about $1 million below studio estimates. Grown Ups 2 ended up trailing only the animated 3D holdover Despicable Me 2, which

Sandler Tragedy Beats Kaiju at Domestic Box Office

Grown Ups 2 beats original Grown Ups, Pacific Rim disappoints on opening weekend: Box office (photo: Taylor Lautner in Grown Ups 2) Here’s a quick rundown of the top twelve movies at the North American box office this weekend, July 12-14, 2013. Universal’s Despicable Me 2, featuring the voices of Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig, was the no. 1 movie, with an estimated $44.75 million — down a not inconsiderable 46% — according to figures found at Box Office Mojo. Despicable Me 2‘s cume currently stands at $229.23 million. The no. 2 movie was the $80 million-budgeted Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups 2 — which North American critics apparently feel plays out like a tragedy, what with a dismal 9% approval rating and 3.2/10 average at Rotten Tomatoes. Anyhow, American and Canadian audiences seem to be thirsty for tragedies: Grown Ups 2 scored $42.5 million and a solid $12,174 per-theater average. Besides Sandler, the Dennis Dugan-directed Grown Ups 2 also features Chris Rock,
