Frank Castle Is Coming To Collect In New Promo For The Punisher

4 hours ago

2017 hasn’t been the best year for Marvel and Netflix and their usually fruitful collaborations. Both Iron Fist and The Defenders didn’t make the kind of impact that we thought they would and fell a long way short of expectations. The first in terms of critical reception and the second due to its shockingly low viewing figures (making it the least watched Marvel/Netflix series of the lot). Their next effort, however, will hopefully put this corner of the McU back on track.

Ever since Frank Castle blasted his way onto our screens in Daredevil season 2, fans have been dying to see him in his own spinoff – and that’s finally what we’re about to get in The Punisher. With its arrival on the streaming service fairly imminent, a short new promo for the series has been released on social media, and you can check it out up above. »

Leaked Description Of New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Surfaces

5 hours ago

Have Disney and Lucasfilm chosen October 9th to be the day in which they unveil the full-length trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Mark Hamill certainly thinks so – or at least, he did, before pulling his Tweet offline last week. To date, there’s still been no confirmation from either studio that early next month is when we’ll see the new preview, but as the radio silence continues, speculation is quickly mounting.

Here to add even more fuel to the fire now is a leaked description of the trailer which first surfaced on 4chan (and has since been deleted) before being picked up by the one and only Mike Zeroh. Yes, we know, that’s a name which causes many eye rolls and groans amongst the Star Wars faithful, and as always, you’ll certainly want to take all this with a grain of salt. For those interested, »

Supergirl Returns In New Season 3 Promo Images

6 hours ago

Supergirl season 3 looks to be the most dramatic run of the show yet. In the wake of losing Mon-El at the end of season 2, Kara Zor-El will be in a dark place which leads her to ditching her everyday Kara Danvers persona and focusing on her life as Supergirl. Which is probably for the best, too, as new dangers are heading to National City this season – some of which can be glimpsed in these new promo images (below) from the upcoming season premiere, “Girl of Steel.”

The photos reveal that the episode will feature some kind of Supergirl Celebration Day hosted by Lena Luthor. However, it looks like things go awry, as Kara and Martian Manhunter are pictured standing in the middle of a scared-looking crowd. Kara’s sister Alex and her fiancee Maggie Sawyer are also caught up in the chaos. As is a new important face in Supergirl’s world… »

Wade Wilson Is A Villain Again In The Despicable Deadpool

7 hours ago

As Marvel fans will know, Deadpool was originally created by Rob Liefeld back in the 1990s as a parody of DC’s Deathstroke. Hence the almost identical names – Slade Wilson/Wade Wilson. As the Merc with the Mouth’s popularity grew over the years, though, the character left behind his darker traits and pretty much became a hero, even serving alongside the Avengers. That’s all about to change, though, in his latest solo series.

First, let’s recap the tumultuous journey Wade went through in the recent Secret Empire event. As a double agent for the good guys, Deadpool worked alongside HydraCap to uphold the corrupted hero’s fascist regime while still feeding info to the underground resistance. The turning point came when he killed Phil Coulson under Steve Rogers’ orders. In an attempt to prove he was still on their side, Wade gave S.H.I.E.L. »

Mark Hamill Teases A Massive, Opulent Canto Bight Sequence In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

7 hours ago

One of the new locations of the Star Wars universe that we’ll get to see for the first time in The Last Jedi is Canto Bight. Effectively the opposite of Mos Eisley Cantina, which Obi-Wan memorably called a wretched hive of scum and villainy, Canto Bight is a lavish casino for the wealthiest folks in the galaxy. Thanks to the odd promo still or drip of information, we know that the setting will feature when Finn and Rose venture there on a mission for the Resistance, but that aside, we haven’t been told a whole lot about the place.

Still, from what little we’ve seen so far, it looks like director Rian Johnson and his team have pulled out all the stops with the set design on Canto Bight to make it look suitably ritzy and glamorous. In fact, in a new interview, Mark Hamill had plenty »

The Walking Dead Is Finally Allowed To Use The F-Word

7 hours ago

It’s one of those strange quirks about TV land that we viewers just have to accept. In a lot of shows, the characters never use strong language in situations when any normal person would. Take The Walking Dead, for example. In a post-apocalyptic world where walkers lurk around every corner, you would expect F-bombs to be dropped left, right and centre. And yet, the word has never been uttered on the show. That may be about to change, though.

On Sunday night’s episode of spinoff Fear The Walking Dead, history was made with the first usage of the F-word in a broadcast episode of this franchise. The moment happened when Frank Dillane’s Nick Clark saw a load of zombies heading to his community. So, as any of us would, he simply said “F–k.”

Anna And The Apocalypse Review [Fantastic Fest 2017]

8 hours ago

As a massive fan of happy-go-not-so-lucky genre hybrids, it should come as no shock that I abso-f$%king-lutely dig John McPhail’s Anna And The Apocalypse – his Scottish Christmas horror musical zombie invasion flick with a heart of solid gold (co-written by Ryan McHenry). High School Musical meets Footloose meets Shaun of the Dead, with all the yuletide yucks you could want. Each song so deliberate in message – warnings about social media hypnotism to escaping small-town mentalities – and each zombie interaction coated in appropriate amounts of bloodshed. Gremlins, Anna And The Apocolypse, Black Christmas – my new favorite X-Mas triple feature.

Ella Hunt stars as Anna, a high school teen who dreams of jet-setting before her university stint and the pursuit of a successful career. Father Tony (Mark Benton) disagrees with his daughter’s decision – as any protective parent would – but a freak event keeps Anna from fleeing her simple little community – the zombie apocalypse. »

New Line Announces Release Date For It Sequel

8 hours ago

We haven’t seen the last of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Mere weeks after hitting theatres, New Line has already assigned a release date to their It sequel, announcing that the film will be with us on Sept 6th, 2019. So, basically the exact same weekend that the first one opened on. And that makes sense, too, given how well the movie’s performed thus far at the box office.

Tentatively titled It: Chapter 2, the sequel will pick up with the Losers Club 27 years after the events of It. Given that, we’re unclear as yet whether the film will herald the return of Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Sophia Lillis and the rest of the gang, but assuming director Andy Muschietti and Co. incorporate flashbacks into the story, there’s a very good chance New Line’s sequel will feature both the original Losers Club and their adult counterparts, as the »

Brawl In Cell Block 99 Review [Fantastic Fest 2017]

9 hours ago

Vince Vaughn will always be thought of as a dry-witted comedian, but writer/director S. Craig Zahler’s ultra-violent Brawl In Cell Block 99 looks to diversify opinions. Instead of crashing weddings, Vaughn is pulverizing skulls. Instead of running his mouth about how “money” people are, he’s quiet, frosty and speaking through dangerous actions. Even with Hacksaw Ridge and True Detective under his belt, this is a new, beastly look for the longtime funnyman, and what a break in character it is. Thoughts about the movie aside, this might be my favorite representation of Vaughn’s talents and not a single joke is needed. Welcome to the game, Vince “I Snap Limbs” Vaughn.

In Zahler’s story, Vaughn stars as Bradley Thomas (not “Brad,” just “Bradley”). We meet him as an honest mechanic, but within minutes, Bradley finds himself laid off on the same day his wife Lauren (Jennifer Carpenter »

Original Halloween Movie Headed To Select Theaters Next Month

9 hours ago

In what is fast becoming one of the more crowded October corridors in recent memory – and for big-name horror films, no less – John Carpenter’s Halloween is officially headed back to the silver screen.

First reported by Bloody Disgusting, screenings have been scheduled to take place all next month across the States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany and Ireland, which only has us all the more excited for Jamie Lee Curtis returning to the iconic slasher series in 2018. Danny McBride and David Gordon Green are spearheading development on that one, with Michael Myers expected to slice and dice his way back into theaters late next year.

For the Halloween of old, though, Carpenter’s genre classic will be getting digitally restored and remastered by Dean Cundey, the original cinematographer who helped spawn a million nightmares back in 1978. Now, almost 40 years later, the original Halloween, one which scooped up a »

Bourne Star Matt Damon Rumored For Cameo Appearance In Thor: Ragnarok

9 hours ago

Thor: Ragnarok is a Marvel blockbuster teeming with A-list talent – Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Jeff GoldblumMatt Damon?

Turns out the Jason Bourne actor may have a small part to play in Taika Waititi’s space opera, if the latest episode of The Weekly Planet Podcast is anything to go by. Citing one source who has allegedly seen a fair portion of Ragnarok already, the outlet claims Damon crops up during an Asgardian theater production in which he plays the part of Loki, God of Mischief.

Remember, last we checked in on the gilded city of Asgard, Tom Hiddleston’s trickster had assumed the throne while disguised as Odin, so there’s a very good chance he’ll spend the opening portion of Thor: Ragnarok behind a magical mask, ultimately leading to a fiery clash between Odin’s warring step-siblings. As for Damon’s alleged involvement, though, and even considering Waititi’s knack for cameos, »

Three Terrifying Clips For Jeepers Creepers 3 Summon A Dormant Evil

10 hours ago

On the eve of release, American Zoetrope and Myriad Pictures have conjured up a trio of terrifying clips for Jeepers Creepers 3, the long-in-development horror flick that’s coming by way of Victor Salva. And therein lies the source of controversy.

Truth be told, the sequel known as Ravenous will soon face another uphill battle if it’s to really attract a mass audience. Jeepers Creepers has always been celebrated as a cult franchise with its own quirks and spooky delights, but the threequel has been a big point of contention amongst horror fans, mostly due to Salva’s heinous crime, for which he served 15 months in state prison. For the record, his victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since issued a statement to say that it’s really up to the audience whether they want to catch The Creeper’s resurrection on the silver screen.

Perhaps more than any other horror film in recent memory, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Tops Guardians 2 To Become 2017’s Biggest Superhero Movie

11 hours ago

Spidey has scaled new heights.

According to figures posted by Box Office Mojo, Spider-Man: Homecoming is now the highest-grossing superhero movie of 2017 with $874 million worldwide, which puts the Jon Watts-directed reboot just ahead of Marvel’s other marquee release, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863 million). For the record, Wonder Woman comes in third on the list of costumed crusaders with $819 million, while the rampaging It continues to gobble up one record after another now that New Line’s R-rated horror has reached $477 million.

Remaining in Hollywood’s superhero genre, though, and Spider-Man: Homecoming made a late charge thanks to its delayed release in China. This weekend alone, Homecoming collected close to $8 million at the worldwide box office, with most of those tickets being purchased in the aforementioned territory. Overall, this impressive tally places Spider-Man: Homecoming at fifth place on the McU standings, though the zippy, critically-acclaimed revival has »

Team Thor Comes Together In Yet Another Thor: Ragnarok Promo

11 hours ago

If you’ve yet to have your fill of Thor: Ragnarok content, we’ve got some good news: Marvel has premiered yet another spectacular promo that ushers Team Thor into the spotlight. And not a moment too soon.

As you’ll no doubt remember, Chris Hemsworth’s Asgardian was left on the sidelines during Captain America: Civil War – ditto for Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) – during which time Marvel’s marketing campaign was divided between Team Cap and Team Iron Man.

Granted, there’s a good reason for Thor’s absence, as writer-director Taika Waititi has since explained that the God of Thunder has been busy searching for wayward Infinity Stones in his pursuit of Thanos, the Mad Titan. That arc will naturally dovetail with Avengers: Infinity War come 2018, but before Thor regroups with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – not to mention the Guardians of the Galaxy – a trip to Sakaar is on the cards. »

Underworld TV Series Gets The Go Ahead; Len Wiseman Promises “Big Departure” From Film Franchise

12 hours ago

The Death Dealer is headed to television.

Deadline brings word today that Len Wiseman and Sketch Films are spearheading an Underworld TV series based on the cult action-horror franchise of warring Vampires and Lycans. With an eye on a premium cable/digital slot, the long-gestating project will seemingly be a “big departure” from the five-part film series, which itself launched the middling Underworld: Blood Wars back in January. Perhaps some fresh blood and a new platform are needed to keep the cult action franchise afloat?

It’s far too soon to gauge Underworld‘s chances of success, but it now joins a long line of film-to-tv adaptations. It’s a creative process fraught with duds and disappointments, as competent spinoffs like The Exorcist are often countered by the likes of Minority Report and Limitless, which were both canned after only one season on the airwaves. Here’s hoping Wiseman’s »

Watch The First Ten Minutes From Spider-Man: Homecoming

12 hours ago

No matter if you prefer Marvel or DC, I think we can all agree that 2017 has thus far been an exceptionally great year for comic book movies. Having said that, I and many of you out there probably can’t wait to add each of them to your respective home video collections. In fact, one in particular that I’m especially looking forward to purchasing is that of Peter Parker’s first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

While you wait for this baby to adorn your shelf, Sony’s now gone ahead and released the first ten minutes of the Webhead’s latest big screen adventure online for your viewing pleasure. And, right from the get-go, we’re reminded of what made Michael Keaton’s interpretation of the Vulture so great. Seriously, I’ve long had my doubts of that character being able to be adapted well to live action, »

Benedict Cumberbatch Welcomed Break From Sherlock And Strange While Filming The Child In Time

13 hours ago

Benedict Cumberbatch’s résumé is nothing if not diverse.

From Smaug the Terrible to a modern-day interpretation of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Coyle’s legendary sleuth who operates out of 221b Baker Street, Cumberbatch has consistently challenged himself with new and exciting roles, with his latest venture leading him to BBC TV drama, The Child in Time.

An adaptation of Ian McEwan’s synonymous novel, The Child in Time places the British thesp in the time-worn shoes of Stephen, a children’s author whose daughter vanishes into thin air during a routine trip to the local supermarket. It laid the foundation for a “dark” and “exposing” performance, and while promoting his latest gig to The Telegraph (via Digital Spy), Cumberbatch admitted that he welcomed the dramatic turn as a much-needed break from both Sherlock and Doctor Strange.

It’s great playing a man who drinks cups of tea, has normal conversations, »

9 Incredible Book-To-Film Adaptations From The Past Decade

13 hours ago

When Hollywood isn’t milking the superhero franchises or making The Hangover Part 67, it occasionally dips its feet into the literary world and picks out a story to adapt from there. Sure, many writers will tell you how their books have been optioned for movies for decades (without any progress being made), but sometimes the studios do get it right and select an outstanding project to bring to life.

The reason not many books get adapted, though, is because it’s difficult to capture a novel’s multiple layers and very essence. Over 300 pages, for example, an adept novelist will be able to convey the past, present, and future of multiple characters, while serving up an engaging plot as well. In a film, however, many elements will have to be removed to ensure the running time doesn’t venture off into the unwatchable territory. Hence book-to-tv series adaptations being more »

Project Cars 2 Review

13 hours ago

When Slightly Mad Studios’ Project Cars was released for consoles back in 2015, it was met with an unusually mixed reception. Hardcore racing sim fans got behind their steering wheels and played until their hands were tired, such was the level of detail and authenticity provided. Other players bounced off the game pretty sharply, due to standard controllers providing a sub-standard experience.

That’s why I should mention that before I get into the main portion of this review, I’ve mainly been playing Project Cars 2 with a standard DualShock 4 controller. High-end racing wheels are certainly nice to use and work much as you’d expect them to in-game, providing a greater level of authenticity and a more flexible time of things. But, we wanted to focus on the kind of experience that the game delivers when using the standard PlayStation hardware that the vast majority of players will be expecting to use. »

New Amityville: The Awakening Trailer Connects To Original Movie, Blu-Ray Release Announced

13 hours ago

If you’re someone who’s been looking forward to seeing Amityville: The Awakening, then odds are that you’re about ready to put your fist through a wall – and understandably so. After first being unveiled all the way back in 2014, the latest entry in the legendary haunted house franchise has been subjected to suffering delay after delay after delay, the most recent of which seemingly put it in limbo.

Thankfully, things began to shift in our favor, first with an international release, and then with the knowledge that the much anticipated horror flick will be made available for a limited time via Google Play starting on October 12. Upon hearing that, we decided to file that tidbit under “better than nothing.”
