We’re still about four months away from the release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and as the calendar turns to 2016 it’s anticipated that info and more clips of the film will be coming our way in greater numbers. Today we get a quick glimpse at a very interesting-looking scene, with the promise of an extended view coming in just a few days. This one really does put the “v.” in Batman v. Superman! (more…)
The film in the running for longest-named movie ever, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, has been out in theaters for a few weeks now, and while it has obviously made money and put a cap on the cinematic version of Suzanne Collins’ novelized story, lots of folks who have seen it are finding more and more to dislike about it. We’re certainly not saying that it’s a bad film, but it does have its bad moments; here, for your reading pleasure, are ten of the most heinous.

Every time I get one of these stories on my desk, I can’t help but go into a corner and cry just a bit. Star Wars will never stop amazing me as to how the incorporate and service their fans,especially those who are in the last stages of life due to illness or unforeseen circumstances. So settle in for the “dust in your eyes”-“Onion-cutting”- “Eye-sweat” inducing story, of how R2-KT entered the Star Wars Canon and soon your heart.
Who would guessed that by the end of 2015 we’d all be more eager in our anticipation for the next Mission: Impossible movie as opposed to the next James Bond movie? ‘Tis true. Spectre may end up making more bank than Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, but if we were to go action for action between the two, there was no more thrilling spy movie this year than the one that kicked off with Tom Cruise hanging off the side of a plane. For real! It should come as no surprise then that Paramount wants the man that authored that success back in the director’s chair for Mission: Impossible 6, which has now been confirmed. (more…)
For months now, we have heard rumors about a collaborator that J.J. Abrams brought from his Star Trek franchise over to the world of Star Wars. In a sizzle reel played at Comic-Con last summer, we caught a glimpse of Star Trek star Simon Pegg (who has stepped up to earn a writing credit on the 2016 sequel Star Trek Beyond) on the set of the new Star Wars movie in a big, weird alien fat suit. We now have photos confirming details about his character. (more…)
Earlier today, The Daily Mail released several photos of Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot and Chris Pine on set on the banks of the Thames in Essex in the United Kingdom. These photos show the two in what appears to be World War I garb alongside 150 or so extras. Rumors have been circulating regarding the setting of the upcoming film, and these new photos would seem to confirm that at least part of the film will be set during the first World War. Due to be released in 2017, production is still in the early stages, but it is exciting to have some proof that Wonder Woman really is finally making it to the big screen. (more…)
There’s some great news, spider-fans. Marvel’s new take on their flagship character is set to begin filming soon, judging by all the info that’s been leaking. Spider-Man is finally ready to swing into the good ol’ MCU. No word yet on when shooting will actually start, but thanks to the NEW Spider Man himself, Tom Holland, we know where it will be shooting. The actor also has some words on why Peter Parker is different from the rest of the heroes in the MCU. (more…)
If there will be a lingering fallout to the overwhelming success of Jurassic World, it won’t be a coming glut of dinosaur films at the multiplex, but a number of films that aren’t reboots of beloved franchises, but continuations. Jurassic World is an example of nostalgia done right, and if it can work for one Steven Spielberg property, then why can’t it work for another? For a long time now, there’s been significant effort to reboot Gremlins, but now the powers that be are looking at the success of Jurassic World and saying, What might Billy and Gizmo be up to 30 years after the original?

It’s been less than a week since 20th Century Fox announced a name change for Ridley Scott’s follow up to Prometheus, which is being touted as the first “official” Alien prequel, Alien Covenant, which is currently in the pre-production stages. The movie will feature a new ship, The Covenant, and its crew stumbling across a planet believed to be a paradise, but is “actually a dark, dangerous world – whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition”.

It was this time last year that we got our first look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That teaser was a minute-and-a-half long and featured only seven shots, but there was also a mysterious voiceover that we’ve since learned was spoken by Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” Now, almost exactly one year later, we get an answer as to who Snoke was talking to. It seems like we’re getting new footage by the day in 30-second or one minute increments, but for the first time, it seems like the new normal of the Dark Side is getting the spotlight in a TV ad.
