The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 2 has been released online, and watching it will definitely get your blood pumping to see the final installment of the Hunger Games franchise.  The heavy drum beats echo the urgency of the mission that Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and co. have undertaken by leading this resistance.  It’s not just their own lives that are at stake this time, it’s the lives of everyone in Panem.  Among those fighting this culmination battle as a part of Team Katniss are Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and Finnick (Sam Claflin).  Along their journey to assassinate President Snow and liberate the oppressed citizens of an utterly war-torn Panem, Katniss and her friends have to face tough decisions, traps, enemies, and danger at every turn.

Remember when the internet was set a flutter in the months before the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron with all the news about all the cameos that will be found there in? Of course you don’t, you’re still wallowing in the disappointment over the finished film. One of the things you may be disappointed about is the lack of appearance of Loki, the villain of the first Avengers film played by Tom Hiddleston. While talking about his new film, Crimson Peak, Hiddleston was asked about what happened, and why it turned out that Loki was cut from the film. The actor gave the following honest answer. (more…)


You may not be able to ride one – but at least now you can say it and be grammatically correct.  Continuing the love being felt around the world for the Back to the Future trilogy of films in advance of the official “Back to the Future Day” – October 21, 2015, the date that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in their time-machine DeLorean from 1985, in case you didn’t know – the Oxford English Dictionary recently declared that “hoverboard” is an honest-to-goodness word.  Now if only they could get my phone to stop auto-correcting it to “Governor…”


What If ‘TMNT’ Was Told From Casey Jones’ POV?


Michael Bay’s 2014 reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles achieved many things. Earning over $484 million world wide, albeit opening to largely negative reviews, the film generated enough to get green lighted for a sequel (to be directed by Dave Green and arrive in 2016). What the movie also did, intentionally or not, what split the TMNT fanbase in two. One side was fully accepting of the direction Bay was taking with the Turtles, and were happy to follow along for the ride. The other side remained loyal to the vision of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and its sequel, Secret of the Ooze. It is of course possible to be on both sides, but it seems that true Turtle fans can’t seem to shake their affinity for the dark, gritty filming style of the originals. Enter Eric England, and his idea for a TMNT film told from the POV of Casey Jones. (more…)

del toro
Pacific Rim 2 may be in a state of indefinite delay, but that hasn’t stopped people from playing around with different ideas regarding the movie. Even Guillermo del Toro has been playing around with ideas, and ever since he joined the Twitterverse, he hasn’t been afraid to share some of them. He recently sat down with someone and thinks she deserves her own Jaeger. Any idea who this person is? You’ll never guess who it is.



It’s the year 2015, and so we have to ask the question, Where’s my hoverboard?! In the movie Back to the Future Part II, the first part of which takes place in the year 2015, we were promised hoverboards, flying cars, easy to access plastic surgery, fax machines in all corners of the house, and, most importantly, double knot ties. Well, a good consolation prize, I guess, is to drink a futuristic Pepsi. In conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the release of Back to the Future, Pepsi is releasing a limited edition Pepsi bottle that looks like it was ordered from the Cafe 80s itself. Cue the “Beat It!” and Ronald Reagan TV waiter. (more…)

Junkie XL to Make Beautiful Music for ‘Deadpool’


Probably not since Danny Elfman on the Time Burton’s first Batman movie has there been a definitive superhero movie theme music, usually it’s all about mood and ambiance in these movies. But is all that about to change? Looking at the X-Men movies specifically, a wide-range of composers have taken a crack at putting the tales of Marvel’s merry mutants to music, from Michael Kamen (X-Men), Harry Gregson-Williams (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) to John Ottman (X2, and Days of Future Past). But what sounds can we expect to hear for Deadpool? What kind of score, and what kind of composer, would be suitable for “the Merc with the Mouth”? Answer: Junkie XL. (more…)


I’ve got to tell you up front that the Transformers franchise lost me after the second movie, meaning that I’ll just wait and see those sequels when they come to premium channels on television. It was probably the wrecking ball… balls. I still care about the franchise as a whole, but would rather my Transformer dollar go to toys or statues at this point. Paramount is already working on Transformers 5, Michael Bay is in talks to direct once again although Bay says nothing is in stone yet (Negotiation tactics) and many think it might be his last go at directing for the franchise, there are still plenty of new Transformers movies in the Paramount pipeline.

A source has reported to TheWrap that director Taika Waititi is in negotiations to direct Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok.  This is quite a leap from his role directing Flight of the Conchords!  Known mostly for his indie comedies, Waititi must have proved worthy, as he beat out Ruben Fletcher for the job of succeeding directors Kenneth Branagh (Thor) and Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World).  As of yet, no Marvel rep has responded to a request for comment.

Yesterday, we posted a story about how the guys in charge at Marvel Studios do sometimes check out social media and other online postings where fans post their passionate and thought out casting suggestions for their movies, the reference in this case was specifically Captain Marvel. In the case of the super-strong, superheroine, no one’s pushed harder for the part, it seems, than Rhonda Rousey, the MMA fighter-turned-aspiring actress who recently said in a Reddit AMA that she would love to play Captain Marvel. It’s not an official casting notice, but the head of Marvel Studios says that if nothing else, he admires Rousey’s moxie. (more…)
