Nothing gnaws on the heel of 80’s action nostalgia quite like Bob – Yes, his first name was Bob – Snake Plissken; the eyepatch-sporting tough guy from the films Escape from New York and Escape from L.A. Neither good or bad, he’s just an asshole who doesn’t give a f**k about your war, your president… or Hollywood reboots.
Escape From New York is the latest of 80s national treasures getting the reboot treatment. While that is a hard pill to swallow for some, there is some sugar to help the medicine go down. A very pleasing directing has just been attached to direct. (more…)

In a recent press conference, Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about Fisher and how her real like curtain call will effect her Star Wars character, and he affirmed that when it comes to Leia’s story line in The Last Jedi, they’re not going to touch it.

Now that the new Power Rangers film has hit theaters, many fans have begun to look to the future of the franchise. Considering the fact that there are currently five sequels planned, that future could be a bit more Rangers-rich than expected. With so many iterations of the team through the source material, Saban has plenty of history to draw from, while establishing this new vision of the uber silly, uber fun kids series. Sure, there may be some fans excited to see if Bulk and Skull will show up in future installments (yeah…probably not…) but the fans that have fought alongside the Rangers from the other side of the television screen since the beginning have another character request: Tommy Oliver. Well, thanks to a new motion poster and a not-too-subtle midcredits scene, audiences may have an idea when the fan favorite Ranger may show up. (more…)
Power Rangers opens in theatres everywhere today, and if you’re a 90s kid, then you already knew that and had this day circled on your calendar for a long while. But because its 2017, it isn’t just enough to think about one movie, you have to think about the series. Take Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for example, before we even got the first movie, we were told we’re going to get five. As for the Power Rangers, if this weekend goes well, we’re not just going to get a trilogy of Power Rangers movies, we’re going to get two trilogies! (more…)

Let’s just say that at this point, Star Wars fans are going to like it or will be letting everyone on their social media feeds know exactly how they feel. If you’re ready for some awesome news or utter disappointment, then read on ahead.
The big DC Films team-up movie, Justice League, is set to drop a whole new trailer this upcoming Saturday (March 25,) so of course that means a galactic threat level hype machine is currently laying waste to social media across the globe that would leave Despero envious. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Facebook and beyond, Warner Bros. social media interns have been enduring the first 3 cords of The White Stripes ‘Icky Thump’ on repeat as each member of the team has been getting their own 20 second teaser and character poster.

Whenever a movie is about to hit the theaters, many fans immediately head to the film review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes to see if the film is officially “rotten” or “fresh.” Sometimes, that determines one is going to see the film. Other times, ( hardcore fans), will see a film in spite of critics because “Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t mean anything.” Needless to say, the film review website is an important part of the movie industry and the movie experience in an Internet age. Rotten Tomatoes has its supporters (those who love a “fresh” score), but the website also has its detractors. Ben “Sadfleck” Affleck surely didn’t appreciate the site for giving Batman v Superman and Live By Night poor scores, and it looks like he’s not alone.
