BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
There has been a great deal of Star Wars-related nitpicking ever since the first trailer for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrived online last year, but arguably the dumbest of the bunch are those complaining that the footage features a black actor (namely John Boyega) in a Stormtrooper uniform.
The Last of Us was one of the best and most popular games of 2013. So when it was announced that Sony was adapting this world of zombies for the big screen, it understandably sent gamers into a tizzy. While you should still get excited for its grand debut, be warned that it won’t stick to the story line exactly.
The comic book film adaptation, Kick-Ass was somewhat of a minor miracle when it was released back in 2010, since it managed to take an obscure cult favorite series and bring it somewhat faithfully to life on the big screen for a major wide release.
February might be a slow month at the movies, but there is still some great stuff headed into homes, thanks to Blu-rays and DVDs. Among these is the long-anticipated Game of Thrones Season 4 release, which will be available to fans later this month.
Nobody said a film festival like Sundance would be a walk in the park. While Jupiter Ascending debuted as a "surprise screening" to negative sneers, a documentary by Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney is causing a louder controversy.
Zoolander 2 has been in the pipeline for quiet some time now, and while Ben Stiller will almost definitely return, there are some big other question marks. We all hope Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell will be back to reprise their roles from the original - but now we know at least one more star of the first movie will be back.
With the venerable question of "who you gonna call?" answered with the recent announcement of an all-female cast, the new Ghostbusters reboot looks set to tackle something strange in the neighborhood. Now we are finally starting to get some feedback from the celebrated surviving cast members of the original film.
Kids playing with their miniature 3 ¾ inch Star Wars figures back in the late 70’s and early 80’s clearly had no idea that the little plastic men they were using to recreate scenes from their favorite film would actually be worth quite a bit of money. However, there are some vintage Star Wars figures whose worth are insane, like this rare UK-issued Boba Fett figure, which just sold at an auction for the US Dollar equivalent of $27,000!
Fans have long been wondering if there's any chance we might one day see a big screen version of Namor The Submariner and have been asking about him for years. Sadly, new information suggests that we are still a long ways away from actually seeing an adaptation happen.
There have plenty of rumors in recent months about when Warner Bros plans to give us our first taste of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the latest one suggests that the first preview will be aired during the Super Bowl.
Snow White and the Huntsman 2 seemed ridiculous to begin with in cutting out the Snow White part. But now that the film has a solid release date of April 22, 2016, two more familiar faces revealed they won’t be returning. Actually three, but two of them didn’t really want to be involved.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2, the upcoming raucous romp rippling through the space-time continuum has unveiled its upcoming Super Bowl spot and, appropriately enough, a joke about the football-related scandal of the month regarding “air pressure” was present and shown in all its prominent, non-flaccid glory.
Seriously, the Furious 7 stunt team is insane, and the car-based action set pieces escalate dramatically from film to film.
These are the 10 movies on Hollywood’s release schedule that could use a Super Bowl boost. Maybe they aren’t on your radar yet? Maybe a studio showed some footage, and it didn’t go over as well as planned? Super Bowl Sunday could be Salvation Sunday if these films play their cards right.
It doesn’t look like ‘ole Obi-Wan Kenobi will have a role when Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hits this December. However, Ewan McGregor, who played the younger version of the grizzled Jedi and a veteran of some of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy’s most seizure-inducing lightsaber battles, has some lightsaber-related criticism on the upcoming film’s most notable new weapon.
It was revealed yesterday that the surprise screening at this year’s Sundance was the Wachowski’s highly anticipated sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending — which is kind of odd because you don’t normally think of a film requiring 3D glasses as the secret screening of Sundance. Nevertheless, this was the first time anyone has seen this film. Unfortunately, the reception was not what Warner Bros. was hoping for (i.e. it was really bad).
Captain America: Civil War was one of the bigger news items to come out of Marvel’s massive announcement of the Phase Three slate. As one of Marvel’s screenwriters reminded us recently, we’ll see the first seeds of discord planted in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Bobby and Peter Farrelly have been joined at the hip since 1994 — cinematically speaking, of course. Their first film together was with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber, and they’ve since gone on to direct eleven feature films. But is it finally time for them to cut the chord and set out to make waves on their own?
We all react to incidents in different ways. But if you’re like Star Wars: Episode 7 director J.J. Abrams, you might turn all this pent-up energy into an emotional speech about how beautiful the moon is. At least, this was what happened after Harrison Ford broke his leg.
With a brand new poster and its first trailer on the way, Ted 2 is ready to shoot its advertising load into the public's eyes. But just when you've thought you know what's headed your way, a surprise hits you in the face.
The Boy Next Door has surprised many moviegoers. Not only has it received a fair portion of positive reviews, rather than the universal critical disdain that was expected, but it has also garnered press attention for being incredibly racy. But I’m here to tell you that it’s not actually that racy at all.
Ant-Man will include many lighthearted moments interspersed among the superhero and heist elements. One of these humorous scenes will be a sparring match between Scott Lang and Hank Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne.
Earlier today, Sony Pictures delivered rather huge news about the Ghostbusters reboot, announcing that they had officially signed deals with four actresses to play the lead roles in the movie. What the big reveal lacked, however, were any kinds of details about the characters that each of the ladies will play. Now those details have started to come out.
As famously recounted in Quint's dramatic monologue in Steven Spielberg's Jaws, the fate of the USS Indianapolis is one of the most horrific tales of World War II. It's a story of capsize, starvation, dehydration, shark-attacks and death, and while there was ultimately a light at the end of the tunnel, that doesn't make the events any less brutal.
Do you like films with strong female leads? Do you like to watch "the fairer sex" prove that they’re not as fair as society has often portrayed them? Then you’ll get a kick out of this supercut tribute to women in prominent action movie roles…literally.
