Rian Johnson confirms Lando Calrissian will not appear in The Last Jedi

5 hours ago

The Last Jedi is already drawing a ton of comparisons to The Empire Strikes Back, from Rey (Daisy Ridley) going off to a remote location to train with a seasoned Jedi (Luke, Mark Hamill), more exposure of General Snoke (same as the Emperor), and an assault from At-at-looking machines.

Lizzy Caplan joins Channing Tatum in Gambit spin-off

23 hours ago

So the solo Gambit film has been killed and resurrected...well, about as many times as the average X-Men character. Which is a lot, let's just say that. But it seems that its full-steam ahead now, with Channing Tatum in the lead (replacing Taylor Kitsch from X-men Origins: Wolverine), and Gore Verbinski behind the camera (replacing the previously announced Doug Liman).

Justice League underperforms even more than previously predicted

20 November 2017 12:54 PM, PST

So Justice League is finally out in theaters! And it's...just barely okay! I mean, I'm sure it has its detractors and defenders, but overall the film has received a generally critical "meh" from most moviegoers. Unfortunately, with the past critical disappointments of Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman, and Suicide Squad (with Wonder Woman as an outlier), this might be the first actual... Read More »

All I Want for Christmas is You starring Mariah Carey releases new clips

20 November 2017 12:14 PM, PST

...what? Look, I'm not going to mince too many words, this looks wretched. The animation looks like it was filmed in the Mii-verse, and the stakes so low, superficial, and cliche, I'm surprised there isn't an evil land developer plotline for no reason. And the character models? While the dad looks like the dad from The Brak Show, the little girl version of Maria looks like a Bratz doll in... Read More »

20 November 2017 11:52 AM, PST

Well the holidays are almost upon us...or have been since the end of Halloween...Damn Those Christmas Tunes! But, besides the unfortunate cultural obligation to get people things or seeing family members you'd rather punch in the face, many of the Christmas customs (Christmas tree, etc.) are relatively new. Sure, it's based on Pagan rituals, but...we don't have to get into that. Anyway, the upcoming whimsical... Read More »

Details on how you could be in Pacific Rim Uprising!

20 November 2017 10:42 AM, PST

Ever since 1995, when director Hideaki Anno's Neon Genesis Evangelion made its debut, I've had dreams of one day piloting my own skyscraper-sized mech. Obviously, we're a long ways off from that dream becoming a reality, if it ever at all. Thankfully, the fine people over at Legendary and Universal Pictures have launched a new contest for Pacific Rim Uprising that will allow two very dedicated... Read More »
