Kick-Ass 2 Trailer And Featurette Bring On The Superhero Mayhem
The rule of sequels is more, more, more, and this trailer addresses that expectation directly. It's soundtrack hums, "You want more? Then I'll bring you more!" And so it does! There's more heroes, more villains, more stars. Plus cops cracking down, explosions, sex appeal, and the promise of more gore and jaw-dropping violence. What more do you want?
Zack Snyder Explains Man Of Steel's Controversial Ending
We can't stop talking about the ending of Man of Steel, and we're not alone. Everyone on the Internet it seems, including people who are bona fide Superman experts, are obsessed with the way that Zack Snyder wraps up his taken on the blue Boy Scout, either criticizing the needless destruction, defending Snyder's action skills, or doing both at the same time. It's a very confusing time to be a superhero fan
Morgan Freeman Will Lead The Hunt For Scarlett Johansson In Lucy
It's been 10 years since Bruce Almighty, but admit it-- you still think of Morgan Freeman as God. The actor has carried an undeniable authority for his entire career, even when he was squabbling with a prejudiced Jessica Tandy in Driving Miss Daisy, but his casting as God in Bruce Almighty somehow struck a chord-- since then it's been nearly impossible to see him in a movie without just assuming he knows everything and has the power to control the world
Ryan Reynolds Abandons Highlander Reboot
There can only be one Highlander… and apparently that's a fictional rule that also applies to rebooting the series. Summit Entertainment has been attempting to kickstart a new Highlander movie since 2008, and after cycling through a series of writers, directors and potential stars, it's lost yet another crucial piece of the puzzle
Prometheus Sequel Still On Track, Brings In Transcendence Screenwriter
Last year Ridley Scott's return to the Alien franchise with Prometheus was hotly anticipated. But once fanboys and critics finally saw what Scott had in store with his big budget prequel, the film proved to be pretty polarizing with some calling it a total disaster of plot holes and fan service, and others proclaiming it a misunderstood masterpiece.
Why No One Would Ever Trust Man Of Steel's Superman
For the last thirty-three years, human beings not directly related to the Kent family or not directly saved by Clark have moved about their daily lives without any knowledge that an alien with stunning, almost unfathomable powers was living amongst them, until suddenly, they’re made aware of said fact by a pissed off warlord alien who threatens to destroy the world if Superman doesn’t turn himself in.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Pushed Back Almost A Year
Of course, if you've been paying attention, this shouldn't be that surprising. The film kicked off production earlier this year, and in February director Robert Rodriguez posted the above image of Josh Brolin on set
Disney's Frozen Teaser Trailer Riffs On Ice Age
Somehow we've found ourselves in a world in which Disney is creating brand-new stories for their animated films, and Pixar is content to recycle a bunch of old ones. As the (admittedly lovely) prequel Monsters Inc. prepares to arrive in theaters this Friday, Pixar's parent Disney has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Frozen
The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones Latest Trailer Delivers More Of The Same
Because the “basic” story behind the seemingly normal teen Clary Fray is so goddamned complicated, a good chunk of this trailer deals specifically with laying the plot out for the uninitiated to try and grasp onto. At least it does this with efficiency, even if the overall story is more suited for a novel.
Man Of Steel Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed Point To Supergirl, Cyborg And More
As what writer David S. Goyer refers to as the "0 issue" of the DC cinematic universe, Man of Steel has a lot of work to do not only to re-establish the origin of Superman, but get viewers interested in an entirely new universe of superheroes to rival Marvel's The Avengers. And Goyer hasn't been shy about dropping hints about how that scene-setting is taking place, how Superman inspires Bruce Wayne to become Batman and how Lex Luthor exists in the universe too
Amazing Spider-Man Sequels Set 2016 And 2018 Release Dates
The studio announced today that they've locked down the release dates for not only the third Amazing Spider-Man movie, but the fourth one. According to Deadline they've laid claim to June 10, 2016 for the third movie, and May 4, 2018 for the fourth one
Maybe M. Night Shyamalan Didn't Write She's All That After All
So we're dealing with a "he said, he said" debate here, and one that might be way harder to figure out than you'd guess from the already-updated IMDB page. Hollywood scripts constantly go through rewrites and tweaks from dozens of uncredited screenwriters, and only once in a while do those anonymous writers become famous and speak out
