The announcement that 20th Century Fox was willing to bet on the fan excitement over Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien art project came as kind of a shocking. Welcoming news for sure, but kind of surprising. At this point though, any tangible news about Blomkamp’s Alien counts only as idle speculation, but that’s not to say that we shouldn’t expect people to start coming out of the woodwork to lay their claim to a piece of it. Enter Louis CK. That Louis CK? Yes, the comedian, through a very trusted source, has let the world know that not only is he interested in appearing in the new Alien movie, but he has a very specific role in mind for himself.

In an attempt to keep up with the competition, WB revealed a huge slate of upcoming superhero films a few months back, which included the highly anticipated villain centric Suicide Squad.  At the time of the reveal, it seemed as if the movie was a lifetime away.  With 2016 less than a year away, however, time seems to have sped up a bit, and now the Suicide Squad movie is picking up some real momentum and we now have word that we may be seeing even more fan favorites up on the big screen than we originally thought.  (more…)

Kentucky Town Issues Arrest Warrant for ‘Frozen’s Elsa for Record Cold Temps

If you live in North America, and anywhere west of the Rockies, then you’re probably freezing right now. Perhaps you can be comforted and warmed by the idea that, at least, you’re not going thorough it alone, but as it stands right now, forecasters are saying that this is going to be the coldest February on record. Being completely irrational human beings, people are looking for someone to blame. For the cold. And the good folks in Police Department of Harlan City, Kentucky, think they’ve found the culprit, Princess Elsa from Disney animated movie Frozen. Presumably, Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold and the X-Man Iceman have been accounted for, so a warrant has been issued for the immediate arrest of Elsa. (more…)

Bryan Singer Teases A Look At Cerebro Designs For ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Bryan Singer likes to stir the pot while making movies. He’s always Tweeeting this or Instagraming that, and we love him all the more for it. I hate it when a movie is so wrapped up in a secure cocoon that no one knows what is going on. I think that cocoon of silence is about half the fan problem that Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot is facing on the Internet. Not Sharing leads to Rumor, Rumor leads to Speculation, Speculation leads to The Dark Side. We certainly don’t have that issue with Singer, he’s shooting things out into the Internet left and right. This latest is s look at the X-Men: Apocalypse design for Cerebro. That mutant power amplifier that helps Professor X find other mutants anywhere around the world. Take a look. (more…)

With Marvel Studios getting all the attention these days (you heard Spidey is coming back to Marvel, right?) We haven’t heard much from the DC camp. Sure, hearing about the casting announcements and rotations on the upcoming Suicide Squad movie (which is gonna a be nuts!) makes for a good proverbial snack, DC/Warner Bros. need to give something more. Well more they have given!

How about our first look at Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman from Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice? That ought to do, right? (more…)

Vaughn Defends ‘Kingsman’s *Ahem* Backdoor Gag

- 02-19-15Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

kingsman-the-secret-service_csXHcU

Kingsman: The Secret Service managed to hold its own last week against the juggernaut that is 50 Shades of Grey. Call it an abject lesson in the shrewdness of counter-programming, but the perfect antidote to the syrupy yet hardcore soap operatic romance of 50 Shades was a balls to the wall action/comedy thrill ride with lots of exploding and punching and shooting. Bravo. But in an odd new controversy, Kingsman’s co-screenwriter and director Matthew Vaughn is having to explain himself for the last gag at the film’s conclusion involving the – shall we say – servicing of a princess in an unconventional way. Obviously, spoilers are involved in the below story. (more…)

I’ve always enjoyed it when at first I didn’t recognize an actor’s name, but after a quick Google search found them in a bunch of television shows or movies that I liked. I’m sure everyone has had that happen to them, those moments when you recognize the actor from an older role and put two and two together. I had just such a moment today when I read the rumor that Jay Hernandez was in talks for a role in David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. (more…)
