The new trailer for "Muppets Most Wanted," the latest film from the felt troupe of performs gives us a better idea of what to expect when it hits theaters next year, in terms of story, cameos, and songs.
"Muppets Most Wanted" is bringing back most of the elements that made 2011's "The Muppets" the group's first hit in years. Bret McKenzie is back with new songs after winning an Oscar for "Man or Muppet" and so is director James Bobin and co-writer Nick Stoller.
This time around, the story is in the style of a classic Muppets caper. The world's most notorious jewel thief bares a striking resemblance to Kermit the Frog, and he devises a plan to switch places with the lovable ringleader. Once the trade takes place, the rest of the gang has to figure out the plot before Kermit spends too much time in prison.
"Muppets Most Wanted" opens in theaters on March 21, 2014.
So maybe "Machete Kills" isn't getting the best reviews. The sequel to the movie based on a fake trailer in "Grindhouse" never promised to be high-class cinema, so we weren't exactly expecting anything different.
That being said, even if the movie isn't worth running out to theaters to see right away when it opens on October 11, the new 3-D trailer for "Machete Kills" is actually pretty cool.
We won't spoil the surprise for you, but the trailer has better 3-D effects than you might be expecting.
"Machete Kills" opens in theaters on October 11.
"Machete Kills" exists for pretty much one reason: to exploit what makes an R-rated movie and R-rated movie. That's why it's only natural that a red band trailer hit the web to promote it.
Also, Samuel L. Jackson isn't as bad as you think he is in today's Dailies!
Andy Muschietti, the director behind the surprise horror hit of the year, "Mama," has been tapped by that film's studio to direct the reboot of "The Mummy." John Spaight, who penned the original draft of "Prometheus," wrote the screenplay.

Because it's Friday the 13th and you've already seen a black cat, smashed a mirror, and yelled "Candyman" five times into the mirror at work, we've got what you're looking for:
On the Big Screen: "Insidious: Chapter 2"
While we've gotta give Billy Bob Thornton props for his latest directorial effort with "Jayne Mansfield's Car," today is not the day to deal with family turmoil plotlines. Unless, that is, said turmoil is due to murderous supernatural spirits who have been haunting you since childhood. The "Insidious" sequel is jam packed with creepy toddler walkers, terrifying rocking horses, and freaky baby monitors. You will never feel the same in a Babies "R" Us again.
After a fake trailer, a real trailer, and then an actual movie, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" franchise. There are lots of guns, violence to go along, and beautiful women, who will also have big guns.
So when we hear something like, "Oh, hey, Sofia Vergara is going to be in 'Machete Kills,'" a thought that quickly follows that news is, "Oh, that's pretty cool. She'll probably have guns coming out of her breasts or something." Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.
A new character poster for the "Grindhouse" spin-off sequel has debuted online (via Dread Central), and your first thought about her character is also the correct one.

In addition to lucking out in scoring some new "Sin City" intel from Robert Rodriguez recently for our "A Dame To Kill For" preview, we also had the opportunity to check in on his other buzzworthy, star-studded 2013 release, "Machete Kills" and what may or may not lead a third Machete film to be set in space.
Rodriguez admitted that he's finishing editing on "Kills" in the midst of his directing duties on "A Dame To Kill For," and that we should expect some teasers soon.
"That's a really fun, really cool movie and another incredible amazing cast," he said. "I'm having a grand time, that was a fun production. I think we'll be trying to tease out images very soon."
This year's Sundance Film Festival marks the 20th anniversary of the Park City debut of Robert Rodriguez's breakout indie "El Mariachi." To mark the occasion, the director hosted a screening of the film that led to two sequels, "Desperado" and "Once Upon a Time In Mexico," and he also stopped by MTV News to share the story of his first Sundance and talk about a potential future for the series.
Rodriguez and the second man to play the Mariachi, Antonio Banderas, recently reteamed for the first time since 2011. The actor filmed a brief cameo in Rodriguez's "Grindhouse" spin-off sequel "Machete Kills." The two had so much fun, talk once again turned to returning to the character that made them.
"We forgot about how much fun we've had together," Rodriguez said. "We decided we have to do something. We want to do another 'El Mariachi' movie at some point. We always said we would, but [we'd shoot it] much later when he's older and rounder."
Two films whose futures remained unclear, especially considering that they didn't have a release date, have just landed fall premieres.
According to Box Office Mojo, "Gravity," Alfonso Cuarón's long-delayed sci-fi epic, and "Machete Kills," the follow-up to Robert Rodriguez's "Grindhouse" spin-off, will finally hit theaters this October and September, respectively.
Cuarón's first feature film in seven years stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as two astronauts who get stranded in space when their shuttle is destroyed. "Gravity" was originally expected to premiere this past fall, but a delay in May pushed it to an indefinite 2013 date. When it does finally bow on October 4, you'll be able to catch "Gravity" in IMAX.

Robert Rodriguez gave Alexa Vega her breakout role in "Spy Kids" when the actress was 12 years-old, and now that she's 24, the director is giving her the opportunity to show off her more—umm—adult side.
Vega tweeted out a picture from "Machete Kills," Rodriguez's follow-up to his "Grindhouse" spin off, and let's just say that her costume isn't exactly "Spy Kids" appropriate.
