Hello everyone! Hope you all slept well. I assume you did, what with all the tranquilizing multiple orgasms going on across the planet, thanks to the leaked trailer of ‘Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron.’ I hope it was as good for you as it was for me. It was filled with tantalizing imagery and provided us with lots of questions (aside from why did Thor’s hammer bounce?)  Site Master Luke took to Facebook to immediately ask you all for theories on who Andy Serkis may have been playing in his split-second appearance. It continues to be a mystery, as he got more snarky answers than substantial theories. The internet is like that and you have to have a thick skin. But it will eventually do right by you, and some smart detectives were able to build on an existing idea thanks to that revealing shot of the motion-cap maven…

Quicksilver Invading Future X-Films, Possibly Even Solo

If you’re a fan of X-Men: Days of Future Past, then you likely got a kick out of Evan Peters’ portrayal of one of the fastest men alive, Quicksilver. Apparently, he charmed his way into audience’s hearts enough that 20th Century Fox is feeling like he needs more screen time. And while we could all expect him to make at least a cameo appearance in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, it seems as if he may be getting his own solo flick as well. Read on for the juicy details.

‘Goodfellas’ Actor Files $250M Lawsuit Against ‘The Simpsons’ For Using His Likeness

Frank-Sivero-Louie-Simpsons

Ever been watching a cartoon, and a character comes on and you think: “HEY! He looks a little like my neighbor Dave!”

Well, get Dave on the phone asap–because apparently that resemblance could be worth a quarter of a BILLION dollars.

At least, that’s what Frank Sivero–the actor who played Frankie Carbone in Martin Scorsese‘s Goodfellas–believes. It seems he thinks Frankie Carbone’s most likely coincidental resemblance to a third-string Simpsons character (we’re talking like a level or two below Bumblebee Man) means Twentieth Century Fox owes him $250 million. More on this delusionary insanity after the jump: (more…)

Was Warner Bros. High When They Greenlit The Budget For ‘The Hobbit’ Trilogy??

- 10-22-14Books, Film, WTF? Posted by Aspry Jones

It cost over 3 times as much to make ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy than it did ‘Lord Of The Rings.’ I know they’ve got awesome weed in that fantasy universe, but who knew it would be so goddamned expensive?? When news got out that crazy man Guillermo del Toro signed to direct ‘The Hobbit,’ fans were mildly okay with it but wanted Peter Jackson instead. The studio wanted him too. But Jackson was busy, and compromises were made. Hands were shook, del Toro quietly exited, and boom – the king returned. Well, they must’ve wanted him something powerful because the budget Jackson ended up with could rebuild Metropolis after ‘Man Of Steel’ left it crumbled. Wait, I’m mixing genres here. That Shire mary jane must be getting to me. Let’s all get stoned just from talking about how much freakin’ money went into this wholly average production. (more…)

Ray Fisher Had No Clue Cyborg Would Also Get a Stand Alone Movie

Sometimes Hollywood plays its movie cards so close to the vest that even the actors involved don’t find out the exact details until the last-minute. Sure, they sign multi-picture deals for big ensemble movies, but apparently Ray Fisher had no idea that along with appearing in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and a couple of Justice League movies that his character Cyborg would also be getting his own stand alone movie.

Pee-Wee Herman Makes Big Announcement! And It Took Long Enough!

People who know me well say that I spend too much time living in the past. I’m discerning about today’s music, but if anything from the 80’s pops up on the radio, I’m blasting it. My favorite TV show of all time is ‘Tales Of The Gold Monkey,’ so the recent troubles of Stephen Collins kinda put me in a weird place. That’s a serious mistake that he’ll never recover from. Other folks are luckier than that. Time heals a lot of wounds, and when some people are done paying, they get another chance to shine above regretful choices. It’s usually several years later, but the beauty in that gives overly nostalgic idiots like myself a chance to relive treasured times. Paul Reubens aka Pee-wee Herman is one of the lucky ones. And sometimes luck is better than a time machine. (more…)

First ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Trailer to Air During Next Week’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

While many fans might argue that there haven’t been enough Avengers cameos in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it’s impossible to argue that Marvel is keeping their Cinematic Universe and Television Universes separate. Captain America: The Winter Soldier blew up Agent Coulson’s world right in front of him. Now it’s time for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to return the favor by airing the first trailer for director Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron during next week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode. (more…)

Ready To Catch Another Case Of ‘Cabin Fever’?

- 10-21-14Film Posted by Rush Urbalejo

In an effort to drain horror fans of their hard earned money and to win the award for Laziest Horror Movie Attempt ever, a new horror flick will be coming to a small screen near you very soon.  What’s it about?  Well, it’s about this group of kids who head to a cabin in the woods for some good ol’ fashion shenanigans but wind up contracting a highly contagious flesh eating virus.  Bonus – it’s from Eli Roth.  Sound familiar?  If you were wondering why it sounds like 2002’s Cabin Fever, there’s a simple explanation: Eli Roth is remaking his own movie, as a producer this time, and in a display of supreme laziness, the remake will simply follow the script of the original movie.

‘Back To The Future’ Hoverboards Are Finally Here! But, There’s A Catch…

USE THIS FIRST

Whenever I’m channel surfing on a boring Monday night and land on ‘Back To The Future’, I just put the remote down without even thinking. It’s a brilliant film with oodles of complexity and a tight hold on one of Hollywood’s various ideas on time travel. I don’t think we’ll ever navigate the past or the future, but there’s a good chance that some of the movie’s technology could come to fruition. Take hoverboards, for instance. In the movie’s somewhat inferior sequel, protagonist Marty McFly zips from 1985 into 2015 and experiences his first encounter with the floating device. Director Robert Zemeckis lied in an interview, saying the contraption was real. But we told science that, according to the movie, they have until 2015 to make that shit happen. Did they or didn’t they? You be the judge. (more…)
