Guardians-of-the-Galaxy

You’ve probably heard the discussions, rumors and speculation about who all is going to be in the two-parter Avengers: Infinity War. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have teased that there will be upwards of 67 characters in the films, producer Kevin Feige has said that the third and forth Avengers films will be a “culmination” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, which are all effective teases, but part one of Infinity War will be the 19th movie of the MCU with 19 movies full of characters that could or could not be a part of the film. But now it’s been revealed that at least one group of characters will definitely be part of the fight. (more…)

halloween1978

If you didn’t think much of Rob Zombie’s two Halloween reboots, which focused on why Michael Myers’ white trash family turned him into a babysitter killing psycho and literally being born under a bad moon (apparently), then take heart because the man that started the whole things is coming back. Halloween wasn’t just a very popular horror movie in its own right, but it was seminal and inspirational, kicking off a whole series of slasher films that borrowed the tropes and tricks that it established. So for the 11th film to carry the Halloween name, the production looks to be bringing back John Carpenter, the man who co-wrote, directed and scored the original film back in 1978. (more…)

In terms of new character debuts in pre-established movies, they didn’t come much smoother than when Chadwick Boseman took to the screen in Captain America: Civil War. Between Boseman as Black Panther and Tom Holland as Spider-Man they quite nearly upstaged with the two main characters, including the titular hero of the piece. So now that we know that Black Panther is ready for his own solo debut, the question must be asked, which characters will support this new hero in his self-titled adventure? And just like that, the internet answers with what looks like a leaked casting sheet for the main parts needing recruitment in the upcoming Black Panther(more…)

Disney-films-bij-Netflix

Back in 2012, Netflix and Disney were deep into talks for a deal that would allow Netflix to exclusively stream all Disney films, Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm, you name it, if it’s a Disney owned film, Netflix would have it exclusively. The deal went through and will take effect this September. Now Netflix will still have to wait until after the Blu-Ray/DVD release dates for new movies, but Netflix won’t have to wait until after the premium channels (HBO, Starz, ETC…) air the movies, nope, Netflix will start streaming those Disney movies at the same time. Throw in Netflix’s original programing and the networks and cable television should be a little worried. (more…)

After the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise got a reboot in 2014, a line in the sand was quickly drawn. On one side were fans that embraced the new style and direction that the property was going in under the direction of Michael Bay, and the other side was just too uncomfortable with how far it strayed from the original 80’s comic. With the reboot’s sequel nearing its theatrical release next Friday, a pretty smart move was made at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows premiere. In a clever throwback to the OG versions of the heroes in a half-shell, 90’s rapper Vanilla Ice and the vintage Jim Henson Creature Shop-looking ninja brothers stormed the stage. (more…)

This was supposed to be a year of celebration for Star Trek, 50 years since the original series first premiered on NBC in the fall of 2016. There’s a new Star Trek movie coming this summer, production on a new Star Trek TV series will begin later this fall, and the con schedule this year is full of special Star Trek guests. The last thing Paramount would want to do is tarnish those good vibes with something like a lawsuit aimed at fans making a highly-anticipated fan film based on Star Trek. So turning a frown upside down, Star Trek producer J.J. Abrams announced on the weekend that the lawsuit against the producers of Star Trek: Axanar is over. Peace in our time. (more…)

Alien21

The Alien franchise is well-known for the tense atmosphere it seems to so effortlessly create. Ever since Ripley and the crew of the Nostromo came up against the extraterrestrial beings known as the xenomorphs, the Alien films have consistently generated an image of a dark and harrowing world. Whether you enjoyed the films in the Alien universe or not, there is no denying they use a stunning mix of haunting, fully realized creatures and a well developed set to engage an audience. It seems this will be the case with the follow-up to PrometheusAlien: Covenant. Ridley Scott and the cast and crew of Alien: Covenant landed in Sydney to got straight to work on the upcoming movie, where initial pictures have been released from the set.

Batman v Superman came into theaters and was immediately met with a massive divisive response. Critics hated it (for not entirely wrong reasons) where general audiences seemed to like it, or at least, found enough in Ben Affleck’s Batman and other moments in the film to win their favor. Arguments on the films qualities are still raging on and likely will continue to carry on for years to come. There is, however, at least one thing that audiences can be unified on. A rumor/suspicion that has now been confirmed by studio itself, Warner Bros. (more…)
