The release date for Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens is starting to creep up on us, but we haven’t seen a lot of footage yet. It appears that the galactic Powers-That-Be want to keep it that way for a little while longer, but they do throw us lowly humans a bone every now and then, as evidenced by today’s release of a new – and frustratingly short – teaser video via the official Star Wars Instagram page.
Ubisoft‘s Assassin’s Creed movie is finally getting production rolling and thanks to Yahoo we’ve got a first look at Michael Fassbender in costume as Callum Lynch, descendant of a long line of members of a secret society of assassins. Don’t worry dedicated gamer, you’re memory isn’t failing you, Callum was not a character in any of the Assassin’s Creed games. The name was created for the movie, but I imagine it might find its way into the next video game. (more…)
Hearing cast members praise the performances of their co-stars is trivial and biased. An actor is not gonna throw another actor under the bus and say “yeah… he/she sucks”. That’d be disrespectful to the actor in question, as well as being counter intuitive to promoting the product. We know this, yet, when it comes to comic book movies we can’t help but buy into hype on how our favorites superheroes are being portrayed. Particularly, if that up talk has anything to do with the latest cinematic incarnation of The Joker.
So here we are, gleaming over the good word of Suicide Squad‘s Margot Robbie as she praises the performance of her co-star Jared Leto; who’s playing a dramatically different take on the crown prince of crime. (more…)
Despite the fact that this whole DC Extended Universe began with 2013’s Man of Steel, the next phase of a solo Superman adventure seemed oddly an after thought during last year’s announcement of the DC Entertainment film slate through 2020. Sure, Supes is one-half of next year’s Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and he’ll almost certainly lead the two-part Justice League movie, but Man of Steel 2 – or whatever it’s going to be called – well, “limbo” would be a fairly accurate description of its current status. But now we get word that the situation may be simpler, and the news from Warner Bros. is that if you’re holding your breath for the next Superman standalone, you should probably stop. (more…)
With mega-watt stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, it’s apparent Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot is already jam-packed with girl power. A tweet from Melissa McCarthy, however, showed us just how much further that girl power extends behind the scenes. (more…)

It’s the most unexpected franchise of the 21st century, a prequel series to series of science fiction movies made in the 1960s and 70s. But hey, money is money, and Hollywood will take your money. And if you want to put more money down on more Planet of the Apes movies, they’re cool with that. So let’s talk about the next Apes film, The War of the Planet of the Apes, the third film in the series that charts the fall of man and the rise of apes will begin shooting sometime this fall. They better get some casting done then, right? Well good news War now has a lead [human] actor. (more…)
It seems that first impressions aren’t everything, even in the movies. Sinister mask, red lightsaber, spooky name, we all had this guy pegged as a Sith. But, according Star Wars The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, Kylo Ren’s appearance isn’t all that it’s added up to be. Watch your step, you wouldn’t want to step into any Sith after the jump. (more…)
