Channing Tatum Begins Shooting Gambit This February
2 hours ago
It's been a long time coming, but the Gambit movie is finally, actually going to begin filming in just a few short months. Channing Tatum pretty much willed this movie into existence several years ago, via his desire to play the fan-favorite X-Men character. But after Fox got on board, the project has had a troubled road to production. However, the pieces of the puzzle have recently started falling into place and we now know that Gambit will begin filming early next year.
According to a new report, Fox will roll cameras on Gambit starting in February 2018. That should give them enough time to get the movie done in time for its February 14, 2019, release date. So your Valentine's Day plans for 2019 are already taken care of. The production is expected to last about five months, as the report says the studio is hoping to wrap in July. Gambit is expected »
Spawn Reboot Setting Revealed, How Does It Affect the Story?
2 hours ago
The Spawn reboot is currently in pre-production and, though Todd McFarlane is busy working on his directorial debut, he's been finding time to keep us updated on the movie. It's expected to start filming in February and that means they're in the middle of location scouting. Though the movie may not be shot on location, McFarlane has revealed that the new Spawn movie will primarily take place in New York City. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.
"There are different places that give incentives for you to come and shoot the movies there. So, we're going to be looking at all those given that, you know we're not going to have a big budget, so we're going to want to stretch it as far as we can, right. And so, but, at the same time given that this world takes place in New York, »
Math Nerds Will Love These New Infinity War Fan Posters
3 hours ago
Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is shaping up to be one of next year's most highly-anticipated movies, and last week, a report claimed that fans heading to theaters to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi will also get to see the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer. One super fan awaiting this trailer is digital artist BossLogic, who spent part of his holiday weekend creating new posters for Avengers: Infinity War, which by no means are official posters sanctioned by Marvel Studios. But they are unique and creative. They all take a unique, math-based approached at the title in quite the creative way.
For those of you who may not be so mathematically-inclined, there is an actual symbol for infinity, which is essentially a sideways 8, so BossLogic decided to have some fun by integrating the infinity symbol into the Infinity War title, while using the six Infinity Stones that Thanos (Josh Brolin »
Venom Movie Unleashes Dark, Powerful Carnage Says Tom Hardy's Trainer
3 hours ago
Tom Hardy has been training with Mma fighter Nathan Jones for Eddie Brock's massive transformation into Venom. Jones has now declared that the world isn't ready for what Hardy is about to unleash. Unlike the agile, nimble, more slender build of Peter Parker's Spider-Man, Eddie Brock's Venom is a much larger, more intimidating character. To prepare for the role of the roided-up Symbiote anti-hero, Tom Hardy has been training with Jones and weight trainer Mark Mene and they have released a new video of Hardy preparing for his role.
Production for Venom is currently underway and we have seen a few pictures and short clips from the set, but the new video showing off Tom Hardy's training regimen in the most intense look that we've seen thus far. Both trainers Nathan Jones and Mark Mene promise a villain the likes of which have never been seen before. Mene had this to say. »
Darth Vader and Thrawn Team Up in First Look at New Star Wars Book
3 hours ago
While fans continue the countdown towards the next highly-anticipated Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans are also looking forward to perhaps one of the most highly-anticipated Star Wars books, entitled Thrawn: Alliances. The first details about this Star Wars novel were unveiled last month, where it was confirmed that Thrawn: Alliances will unite two of the Star Wars canon's most iconic villains, Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader, and now LucasFilm has revealed the cover for the book, featuring both of these iconic characters. Here's a description of the novel below, from the official Star Wars website.
"The Star Wars Show revealed the cover of Timothy Zahn's Thrawn: Alliances, the highly-anticipated follow-up to this year's bestselling Thrawn novel. It's a striking image featuring both Darth Vader and Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Empire's deadliest enforcer and perhaps its most gifted strategist. The book finds Thrawn on a »
Mark Hamill Shares Thanksgiving Tribute to Carrie Fisher
5 hours ago
Master of social media, Mark Hamill took a break from trolling Star Wars fans over the Thanksgiving holiday and instead shared some humorous messages along with a heartfelt tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, his on-screen sister. The Luke Skywalker actor shared some Star Wars Thanksgiving-themed memes featuring Porgs taking over the holiday as well as Darth Vader cutting a turkey with his Lightsaber and a cornucopia featuring Bb-8, among others. Those tweets were all well and good and gave fans some laughs while celebrating, but it was his tribute to Carrie Fisher that really got everybody's attention.
It's hard to believe that The Last Jedi is less than a month away, but it's even harder to fathom that it's been nearly a year since we lost Carrie Fisher. It's tough for fans, but immensely harder on those who knew and loved her, like Mark Hamill. Hamill took to Twitter »
Unused Batcycle Revealed in New Justice League Concept Art
5 hours ago
As fans get ready to head back to theaters for a second viewing of Justice League over the holiday weekend, production designer Patrick Tatopoulos is showing off some early designs. The production designer unveiled artwork depicting an updated Batcycle, that ultimately wasn't seen in the finished movie. It isn't known how this unique vehicle may have fit into the story, or if scenes with these vehicle were actually shot and discarded. The production designer also unveiled some designs for the Flying Fox as well, the Batman aerial transport that actually was seen in the movie.
The images were revealed on Instagram, although Patrick Tatopoulos didn't offer any details about his work and why the Batcycle ultimately wasn't used in the movie. It also isn't known if, like previous versions of the Batcycle, this vehicle is one that actually detaches from the Batmobile. But given the new upgraded version of the »
Uma Thurman Breaks Silence on Weinstein: He Doesn't Deserve a Bullet
5 hours ago
Uma Thurman has officially broken her silence on Harvey Weinstein. Last month, the actress said that she would say more regarding Weinstein, who worked with her on some of her early big movies, like Pulp Fiction, when she was "less angry." She's still angry, but in a social media post on Thanksgiving, the actress said that she has also been sexually harassed and that Weinstein "doesn't deserve a bullet."
While wishing her Instagram followers a happy Thanksgiving, Uma Thurman decided to finally open up a bit about her experience with sexual misconduct in Hollywood. She made use of the popular #metoo hashtag that many people used in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to spread awareness of sexual harassment. While she didn't detail her experience, she did not mince words when speaking ill of Weinstein, who she feels is getting the slowly served fate he deserves. Here's what she had to say. »
Zack Snyder's Son Reviews Justice League, Takes Swipe at Warner Bros.
6 hours ago
While Zack Snyder claims he hasn't seen Justice League, another member of the family has become the mouthpiece in terms of criticism pointed at the theatrically released version of the movie. He has shared his views with fans, and doesn't hesitate to take a swipe at Warner Bros. and their meddling. Over all, he doesn't slam or bash the movie, and claims to like it for the most part.
That can't be said for the majority. Critics and fans have had a lot to say about Justice League, most of it on the harsher side. But there are plenty of DC fans that are really happy with the way the movie came out. Within the faction of fans and critics who didn't like Justice League, there are people who are still holding out hope to one day see director Zack Snyder's original cut, before Joss Whedon came on board and "tampered" with Snyder's vision. »
Rey's Parents Finally Revealed in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Game?
6 hours ago
Even before The Force Awakens hit theaters, people were wondering about Rey's parents. And it has become one of the bigger mysteries behind the new Star Wars trilogy. Star Wars: The Last Jedi promises to give us the definitive answer in a few short weeks. But suave players who have finished the new Star Wars: Battlefront 2 video game think they have it figured out. Rey's parents are a pair known as Iden Versio and Del Meeko.
Who? Well, they are two official Star Wars canon characters introduced in the new Battlefront 2 game. And it makes sense. Most fans have long suspected that Rey is not Luke Skywalker's daughter or even blood relative. She's not Kylo Ren's sister, despite her connection to Han Solo, and that controversial Leia hug at the end of Star Wars 7. As often prophesied, Rey's parents are two individuals who were not connected to the original trilogy. »
Chewbacca Punches a Porg in Latest Star Wars 8 Footage
23 November 2017 11:31 AM, PST
Porgs are everywhere these days and they are either hated or loved by Star Wars fans. Even the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi can't figure out if they love them or hate them. Finn actor John Boyega recently said that they get to be quite a handful when there's a lot of them in one place and Daisy Ridley has revealed that Rey isn't too into them while she's on Ahch-To. But one of the bigger relationships that we've all been hearing so much about is how one particular Porg is being used as a therapy creature for Chewbacca after the devastating loss of his pal Han Solo. So why is the Wookie punching his little buddy in the newest Last Jedi TV spot?
In honor of the holiday, Lucasfilm has released yet another TV spot for The Last Jedi. In addition to Chewie punching his new Porg buddy, »
Justice League VFX Video Reveals Batman and Cyborg's Superhero Secrets
23 November 2017 11:18 AM, PST
A new VFX reel for Justice League has just been released online and it gives us a sneak peek into the digital special effects that went into making the little details of Dceu movie look as great as it does. The movie finally hit theaters last week after months of controversy and speculation and while the movie is divisive, one thing that almost everybody can agree upon is that the villainous Steppenwolf looks like he has on way too much CGI makeup and really doesn't look scary or evil at all. The new VFX reel focuses on the heroes of the Justice League and their user interfaces that do a lot of the heavy lifting, not the overall CGI used in the movie.
The Justice League VFX reel shows off some of the lesser-seen elements of the movie, but they are integral pieces to the movie that deserve some spotlight. »
10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew
23 November 2017 10:35 AM, PST
It's a certified cinema classic and one of the most quotable movies ever. Two years after Reservoir Dogs, video store clerk turned auteur Quentin Tarantino turned out another masterpiece in Pulp Fiction, the 1994 movie that rescued John Travolta from the pop culture waste bin via a now iconic performance, matched in creative and artistic firepower by Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Amanda Plummer, Ving Rhames, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson as the soul searching hit man Jules. Pulp Fiction still regularly plays in midnight showings at the writer/director's own New Beverly Cinema. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Pulp Fiction.
Matt Dillon was almost Butch.
Originally Quentin Tarantino conceived of the "palooka" pugilist played by Bruce Willis as a younger up and coming boxer. He envisioned Matt Dillon in the role. But after the actor reportedly took too long to decide, »
Dead Cross' Church Music Video Is the Best Horror Short of 2017
23 November 2017 10:17 AM, PST
Hardcore super group Dead Cross, featuring ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton, have just released a new video for their song "Church of the Motherf---ers" and it's the best horror short of the year. This is the band's second video off of their debut album and it is an intense look at religion with some harsh undertones of what has been happening in the entertainment industry's sexual misconduct scandals. When a band sounds as brutal as Dead Cross, it's hard to find imagery that heightens that feeling instead of parodying it, and director Michael Panduro has done a perfect job of capturing the pure essence of this type of music.
The Fight Club-themed video for "Church of the Motherf--ers" opens with a quote from German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who states, "The influence of a man has never yet grown great without his blind pupils. »
Is Infinity War Bringing Back Hela and the Ancient One?
23 November 2017 9:47 AM, PST
It looks like a couple of major characters may be returning for Avengers: Infinity War. The massive Marvel event movie looks to be the culmination of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up to this point. That being the case, pretty much every major character is going to show up, if only briefly. And, if Mark Ruffalo is to be believed, that may even extend to quite recent and presumably dead characters.
During a recent interview on Michael Rapaport's I am Rapaport podcast, the man responsible for bringing Hulk to life was asked which actors left "the best impression" on him after having worked with them. He then proceeded to name drop both Cate Blanchett, whom he worked with on Thor: Ragnarok and, more surprisingly, Tilda Swinton, who portrayed The Ancient One in Doctor Strange. That's of particular note because, as far as we can tell, »
Bb-8 Works His Magic in Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser
23 November 2017 9:28 AM, PST
As the countdown continues towards Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a new Verizon ad has been revealed which features new footage of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Bb-8. Fans were introduced to both Poe and Bb-8 together early on in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, although the loveable ball droid ended up with Rey (Daisy Ridley) throughout most of the movie. Now he will be reunited with the Resistance X-Wing pilot in The Last Jedi, as we see in this new footage. While we don't get a ton of extra moments, it does showcase how handy Bb-8 can be, while Oscar Isaac himself offers more on his character in a new interview.
The ad features a brief scene with Poe Dameron in the middle of an aerial dogfight in his X-Wing ship, when he asks Bb-8 to "work his magic." Bb-8 then descends from his usual post on the X-Wing ship to go down below, »
Deathstroke Goes Unmasked in New Justice League Photo
23 November 2017 9:15 AM, PST
A new image of Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke has surfaced and it features the actor without his infamous mask. Spoilers Ahead. Slade Wilson is one of DC's most dangerous characters and his involvement in the Dceu has been teased for over a year now. He made a cameo in the incredibly divisive Justice League, where the immensely corny "league of our own" comment comes from, lifted from the female baseball movie A League of Their Own. So much for the whole dangerous thing for Deathstroke and Lex Luthor.
The new behind-the-scenes photo features Joe Manganiello on set with 2 of Lex Luthor's bodyguards played by Katia Elizarova and Gem Refoufi. Though the picture doesn't show off the eyepatch, it's still a great image of Slade Wilson, aka, Deathstroke hanging out on set. Joe Manganiello is getting his own Deathstroke movie as well, and the Justice League post-credit scene possibly teased the »
Snoke's Motivation and Twisted History Revealed in The Last Jedi
23 November 2017 8:57 AM, PST
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is only a few weeks away. Motion capture maestro Andy Serkis has taken some time to talk about Supreme Leader Snoke in a new interview that gives us some insight into what fuels the mysterious villain. Even as the release date for the movie gets closer, there's still a whole lot about Snoke that we do not know and director Rian Johnson has said that we won't get much of a backstory for him in The Last Jedi, citing that Star Wars fans didn't know Emperor Palpatine's history until the prequels came out. While we might not be getting the entire history of Snoke in the upcoming movie, Andy Serkis has provided us with the best insight into the character so far.
Andy Serkis recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss his Snoke character and what drives the villain in The Last Jedi. As it turns out, »
Take Me Review: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Movie
23 November 2017 8:04 AM, PST
It's Thanksgiving. You and the family have just finished your meal. And you want some lighter fare, suffering from the tryptophan buffet you just willingly engorged yourself with. The kids are off playing on their tablets. The game is over, and the adults need a swift 80 minute distraction before tearing into pumpkin pie and cobbler. Why not check out one of Netflix's looked-over gems from the past few months. It's the perfect little slice of desert before the desert. Don't spend hours searching the queue, arguing over what you're going to watch. Just select Take Me and go!
Take Me, while not a Netflix Original (it is only "Presented By Netflix"), is a home run for all the parties concerned. This whimsical tale of a simulated kidnapping gone very, very wrong is probably the first film to truly pull off this motif since 1986's Ruthless People or 1988's A Fish Called Wanda. »
Porgs Really Freaked Out Star Wars 8 Star John Boyega
23 November 2017 7:59 AM, PST
Long before the Porgs were revealed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there had been rumors that there are other creatures on Ahch-To, which took care of the planet. And there were even rumors that these creatures didn't like Rey, since she wasn't invited, and she has to prove herself worthy of being there. After getting our first glimpse at these creatures, there still isn't much that has been confirmed about them. In a new interview, John Boyega reveals that while Porgs are cute, they are also "freaky," especially when bunched together in a group. Here's what the actor had to say about these Porgs.
"I just remember doing some stuff and seeing a lot of Porgs around. And they are interesting, but for me, I had a love/hate relationship with them. They're very, very cute, but when you put them in a bunch, in holes, on the Millennium Falcon, »
