Since returning to acting after his two terms as California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s had his share of hits and misses. Despite being nearly 68 years old, he’s still the epitome of tough, while at the same time he’s still willing to take chances, as evidenced by his recent turn in the zombie drama Maggie. As Arnold is about to be seen again everywhere in one of his most iconic roles, that of the Terminator in Terminator: Genisys, talk turns again to the possibility of taking on another of his iconic roles again, Conan. Schwarzenegger last appeared as the creation of Robert E. Howard, and artist Frank Frazetta in 1984’s Conan the Destroyer, but there’s long been talk about a reprise. And naturally, there’s now more talk courtesy of the man writing the screenplay for The Legend of Conan. (more…)

Twentieth Century Fox and producer Simon Kinberg are set with an arsenal of Marvel-minded films. The Fantastic Four reboot is in its marketing stages, and shooting for X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool has started simultaneously. Add to that talk of Wolverine 3 and New Mutants, it may be hard for fans to keep up. It’s important, however, not to let one name get caught in the shuffleRemy LeBeau, aka Gambit. (more…)

Bird Bird can do wrong. The Iron Giant is a masterpiece, The Incredibles is perhaps the best comic book movie ever made, Ratatouille is endlessly charming, and his first live-action movie, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, is the best of the series and the one that best captures the aesthetic of the original TV show. So when Bird shirked directorial responsibilities on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and dared to make something original, a giant mystery box called Tomorrowland, it was a bold choice, a daring choice. But a batting streak like Bird’s was bound to run dry sometime, and while Tomorrowland isn’t a mess on par with, say, Chappie, it does show tremendous strain in its execution. (more…)

gotepisode7

The seventh episode of Game of Thrones season five is so obvious it hurts. Its called The Gift and it’s about gifts. (In Oprah voice) – everyone get a gift! Sam Tarley, Ramsay Bolton, Stannis Baratheon, hell even Daenarys Targaryen! They say its better to give than to receive, but in Westeros that depends on who you ask. Spoilers after the (shark) jump!

Ever since Michael B. Jordan was cast as Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the new Fantastic Four movie, the majority of the Internet has not been very accepting to the idea. And, that’s putting it kindly. In truth, the reception has been flooded with real nasty, hateful, ignorant, and racist reactions – the very worst that the Internet can be.

Normally, when the Internet lets loose a wave of hate, talent and creatives just let it pass on by them and ignore it. In today’s case, however, Michael B. Jordan has taken a stance against spoken out about it.

The young and talented actor recently wrote a guest article for Entertainment Weekly in which he addresses the haters and internet trolls that came out to attack. Some of the things he said he saw on the internet were, “A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It’s not true to the comic.” Or even, “They’ve destroyed it!” (more…)

Batman & Robin was nearly 20 years ago now. Yeah. In that time George Clooney has become an accomplished writer, director, producer and an Academy Award-winning actor. He’s worked with a variety of collaborators like Steven Soderbergh, the Coen Brothers, Alexander Payne, and Alfonso Cuaron, hardly the sort of hackery that became associated with B&R director Joel Schumacher back in the summer of ’97. You might say that Batman & Robin was Clooney’s original sin, and he’s paying the price for it these last two decades. So in the interest of continued penance, Clooney was once again called to apologize while doing a round of promotion for his new movie Tomorrowland. (more…)
