'Hunger Games" Meets 'Pac-Man' In 'Maze Runner' Trailer

At which point exactly in the near future are we legally allowed to hunt teens for sport? Dystopias continue to be shitty places to live for young adults in the first trailer for The Maze Runner. Based on the bestselling novel, teenagers are pitted against an elaborate series of death traps and things that want to bite them until one special teenager is selected who is really good at running through mazes. Bet you weren't counting on that, huh, shadowy maze makers?

'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' Trailer Shows Restraint By Not Using That Smashing Pumpkins Song

Despite all his rage, he is still just a rat in a cage. The sequel to last year's hit, The Maze Runner, frees our teenage heroes from the Dystopian maze that tried to murder them and takes them on an all expenses paid trip to San Francisco. Unfortunately, it's all a desert now and also trying to murder them. This time, Game of Thrones' Aiden Gillen joins the series as the adult trying to kill children via elaborate traps and experimentation after they escape his compound and flee to the outside world. But what is the outside world for young adults than just a really big maze, y'know?


'Terra Nova' Dystopia Trailer Shows Off Really Cool iPads

The future looks simultaneously awesome and terrible. This new look at Fox's "Terra Nova" teaches us that though the characters live in a dystopian shit-pit where you need to wear dirty breathing masks and huddle together for warmth, the technology is still totally awesome. Look at that tablet! It's totally transparent. That way everyone on the train will know that you're secretly looking at photos of Blake Lively. Even their Stargates look cooler!! Why would anyone want to leave that place? Sure, the air sucks and the lighting makes reading difficult but at least you can play Portal.


Let The Bodies Hit The Floor: Sylvester Stallone Kill Count Supercut

Sylvester Stallone just killed a bunch of guys. This supercut compiles every time a screen villain has died by the hand of Sylvester Stallone. Coming in at a whopping 539 kills and clocking in at just over a half-hour, it proves that John Wick has no work ethic. Kids today. Of course, this count is by no means official and may be off by one or two. I'm pretty sure he kills someone in Oscar but can't expect anyone to sit through that movie in order to find out.


The Perfect Assassin Just Wants To Be A Normal Teenager In 'Barely Lethal' Trailer

Guns in high school. This one shouldn't be a tough sell. Fanboys director Kyle Newman brings us Barely Lethal, a movie about a group of orphan girls are turned into a squad of elite killers by Samuel L. Jackson, who insists they have no attachments. But when Assassin #83 yearns for a normal teenage life, she escapes the compound and hides out at a high school. There she navigates cliques, crushes, and the international terrorists that want to see her die slowly. The film doesn't have a US release date yet, probably due to the fact that it promotes gun violence in high school. And I can see that point. But, I also see Samuel L. Jackson wearing this hilarious disguise and I am SOLD.


'Gotham High' Is A Tricky Place For A Teenage Girl

I dare you to write a logline for this. It's hard to really tell what this is, but it's interesting enough that you won't turn it off. Yup. That's my glowing endorsement. "It's weird and disjointed enough that it's kind of fascinating." Gotham High offers a teenage girl's inventory of Dark Knight-era Batman actors as the played high school students in other roles. Only sometimes it's not like that at all, like when they have the character Powder from the terrible movie Powder portraying a young Mr. Freeze. And then it just sort of turns into clips from 10 Things I Hate About You. Just watch.


'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' Clip Does Nothing To Demonstrate How Shadowy Recruiting Can Be

Harrison Ford looks like he had some work done. When Ben Affleck was cast as the last Jack Ryan in The Sum of All Fears, Matt Damon was occupying the same space in the action world as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity. After the flop of the former and success of the latter, the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan franchise is back with Chris Pine, and it looks a lot like Bourne. Shaky, more action-y, and gritty. Take a look at this clip, and see if it's for you.


No Animal Is Safe In Adult Swim's 'NTSF:SD:SUV' Trailer

This show really raises to bar for acronyms in titles. Almost too high. What Children's Hospital did to medical dramas, it appears NTSF:SD:SUV will do to police dramas such as Law & Order, CSI, and 24. Originally a bumper parody from Children's Hospital, NTSF quickly spun off into its very own 15 minute series, getting disproportionately big names like Martin Starr, Adam Scott in a wheelchair, Rebecca Romijn, Jeff Goldblum, Rob Riggle, Wilmer Valderrama, Kate Mulgrew, and Ed Helms, all of whom seem to have no problem putting their images aside in the name of jackassery. There's no shortage of awesome moments in this trailer, but if I had to pick a favorite one, it would certainly be the guinea pig exploding at the :40 mark. Also, a beached dolphin gets punched. Like the bastard he probably is.


Japanese Game Show Pits Woman Against Bear

Best game ever. Sex Box, the game show where couples have sex in a box while perverts listen in, didn't really set American television audiences on fire, but are our shores ready for Bear Box? The clip above is reportedly from a Japanese game show called Sekai No Hatte Madde Itte Q!, and the segment is known as "Predator Shield." A woman is sealed in a large glass box which is being battered, pushed, and rolled by a giant grizzly bear. I have no idea how one wins this game, but I smell a hit. And what about Celebrity Bear Box? Who wouldn't tune in to see Bret Michaels fight a bear? We'll be printing money. Someone get me Mark Burnett and a bear owner on the phone.
