note

Oculus director Mike Flanagan has been tapped to reboot Sony‘s Horror franchise I Know What You Did Last Summer.

Marvel released the first official plot synopsis for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier today. Don’t worry though, there’s not any smoking gun here. Nothing that spoils everything unless you’ve been on an Amish retreat in a remote ice cave in Antartica. It does set up the frame-work in which we can begin to speculate like demons though. Take a look after the jump. (more…)

When Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace came out, despite your feelings about the film, there was one thing we could all agree on: Darth Maul was awesome! Why? Because he had a double-edged lightsaber, yo! Too simplistic? Maybe, but it looks like in the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels, the creators are upping the game by giving the villainous Inquisitor not just a lightsaber, and not just a double-lightsaber, but a spinning double-lightsaber. Taking bad ass to a whole new level, the blow clip introduces The Inquisitor (voiced by Jason Isaacs) and and his twirling weapon of hot death.

Hulk Fabricate! Lou Ferrigno Makes Wild Claim About Hulk’s On-Screen Future!

When Lou Ferrigno played the Hulk on television back in the 80’s, he was the biggest dude I’d ever seen at the time. I thought he was perfect for the role and just ignored the hair. Now, for some reason, it reminds me of Dexter Morgan’s do’ and I can’t get it out of my head. With matching eyebrows that could bring down The Leader all on their own, the big guy had massive success smashing stuff in slow motion week after week. Years later, he’d expand on his good relationship with Marvel by appearing in their films. He played a security guard in ‘The Incredible Hulk’ and went on to voice the character in the studio’s film incarnations. So, maybe he’s in the loop on their future projects. Maybe when he claims unsubstantiated plans for his former self, he knows what he’s talking about. Right? Right?? (more…)

From casting rumors to potential locales to the barest hint of plot details, Star Wars Episode VII has been one of the most talked about movies in years, and with good cause.  The franchise that the majority of us love so much is finally returning to its roots and will feature the characters that helped us all fall in love with the Wars saga in the first place.  In addition to giving fans a new entry in our beloved franchise, Disney has also promised a few stand-alone spinoff films over the next few years and since the announcement, many have been wondering just what these spinoffs would be about.  Could we see a young Han Solo in a stand-alone flick?  Perhaps we will have the chance to watch a young Boba Fett grow into a bounty hunter that has a penchant for disintegrations.  Today, a new rumor has emerged that may give us a real answer.  We may have to wait a while to get any sort of hint from the studio but if the folks over at Making Star Wars truly do have a man on the inside, one of those spinoffs will focus on everyone’s favorite hermit, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Guardians

The nation of Japan has brought the world many wonderful bounties: Godzilla, Akira, Hello Kitty.  However, for every Full Metal Alchemist, there’s a splash of hentai that crops up to wreak havoc on all  that you find holy and pure. With that in mind, it should be no wonder that Japan chose to celebrate the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy in its country over the weekend in a way that will make you wonder  if the AI revolution is upon us.

Then quiet rumors started to buzz around the Internet that one of the Batmobile model cars had been stolen off the lot. Warner Brothers and Snyder haven’t confirmed or denied the theft rumor, but early this morning Snyder did tweet a fantastic photo that touches on the subject. (more…)

What Would ‘Star Wars’ Have Been Like Without John Williams?

Sometimes people don’t recognize exactly how much a great movie score affects the way you see a flick on a profound level. The best musical compilations are remembered for years even if they’re not necessarily the main thing that audiences are concentrating on while they view a film. In the world of awesome movie scores, John Williams’ name stands high above most of the others. Now imagine if the world we lived in had no John Williams… Imagine Star Wars without the epic music. How would that look? Scroll on to check out just one scene from A New Hope that has been stripped of Williams’ brilliant influence (courtesy of the Auralnauts). (more…)

Disney’s Frozen came out almost a year ago and people are still singing that damn “Let it Go”. It’s starting to become as obnoxious as the “It’s a Small World” tune. That’s actually the perfect example for today’s story. Just like “It’s a Small Word”, Frozen is to be inducted as yet another ride at Disney parks where passengers will be trapped on a log chute while a title track plays on an endless loop (I was once trapped on It’s a Small World for 45 minutes while the song played, so you can imagine my deep rooted horror). Hit the jump to read on more about what classic ride is being updated, as well as Disney World’s plan to transform their castle for Elsa. (more…)
