Clearly Thanos isn’t as big of a menace in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as some would have you think he is. In fact, it looks like they’re really saving him for The Avengers 3 more than anything, save for a couple of appearances and mentions used to push the story along to the eventual Infinity Gauntlet storyline.
It's happened to all of us. Everyone is raving about a movie with a "big twist." You totally mean to see it. And right before you do, some jackass accidentally drops the bomb. The Sixth Sense. The Crying Game. The Usual Suspects. All these are movies that are more entertaining if you don't know that mind-blowing twist in advance.
A screener of the movie arrived with a copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles saved for viewing. The following images were shared via Imgur. They show an official Paramount masthead, a handwritten letter, and a heartbreaking image of a strong Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan smiling from a major accomplishment.
Frank Miller is a comic book author known and admired for his deeply dark brand of visual storytelling, perhaps most recognized from the movie adaptations of his graphic novels Sin City and the upcoming Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. It turns out, Miller is outright hostile to movie adaptations of his characters that he himself didn't have a hand in helming, and that includes every single Batman movie. In fact, he hates them. Every. Single. One.
Bill Murray is an American comedy icon. But Canada has beat the U.S. to the chase in giving the star of such beloved movies as Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters and Stripes his very own day of honor. Well played, Canada. Well played.
So the Up clip demonstrates what we all pretty much knew. There are a lot of pretenders in this universe, and they think they can ape Michael Bay’s style. But when you boil it down to the facts, there is only one Michael Bay on this planet.
2014 is evidently the summer of the Ice Bucket Challenge -- an effort to raise money and awareness for ALS -- and the trend has very clearly spread to movie sets.
No Pixar film has had a rougher road to theaters than the upcoming The Good Dinosaur. First announced as being in development during the summer of 2011, the project hit the skids last summer when it was revealed that director Bob Peterson had been removed from the movie. While the finished product was supposed to actually come out this past May, its release date was bumped all the way to late 2016.
Marvel Studios has been working hard to put out good stuff for years, but they truly stepped up their game earlier this year with the release of Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Not only was the film yet another thrilling chapter in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe - moving the world forward in a fascinating way - it was also an incredibly well-executed political thriller that just happen to have comic book characters playing out the roles of heroes and villains.
What you'll find inside are two full pages of definitions that were handed out to patrons paying to see director David Lynch's adaptation of Frank Herbert's famous sci-fi novel Dune back when it was first released.
We've been hearing rumors of an all-female version of The Expendables - nicknamed The Expendabelles - going back to 2012, and while names like Linda Hamilton, Milla Jovovich, and more have come up in wishlists and conversations, there is one actress in particular whom many would call the queen of female action stars.
While August has classically been considered a weak spot on the Hollywood release date schedule, with studios regularly using the time as a sort of dumping ground for blockbusters they don't have much faith in, that hasn't been the case so far in 2014. The month got off to a hot start with the release of Marvel Studios' record-setting Guardians of the Galaxy, and a second week boost came in the form of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Kevin Smith has a number of big shot Hollywood friends, having worked with a number of them during his time as a director, but recently he has apparently become close with Johnny Depp, of all people. Back in April it was "revealed" that the Oscar-nominated actor would be playing a role in the filmmaker's upcoming horror movie Tusk, but their collaboration isn't ending there.
This week, there are superheroes, but also big sets coming from most of the big networks, with CBS, ABC and NBC all producing releases for some of the network’s hit shows. Among these, The Good Wife is offering a DVD release for what is probably its most memorable season, yet.
Kudos to the Foos for stepping up this game, investing the time, energy, resources and imagination that elevates the simple act of dumping cold water on one’s head.
