While her co-stars Hart, Dwayne Johnson, and Jack Black are appropriately clothed for a jungle expedition, many had issues with Gillan’s more skin than clothing attire. Enough it seems to warrant a response from Gillan. (more…)
Ghost in the Shell is one of the most beloved anime films in history. To call it a “cult classic” would truly do the film a disservice, considering the vast majority of viewers find themselves falling in love with the film, even if they have never enjoyed anime previously. Incredibly led by director Mamoru Oshi, the 1995 film, which was adapted from the manga series of the same name, was a stylish blend political intrigue and philosophical tones, with futuristic technology and amazing music providing the perfect backdrop. When it was first announced that Paramount would be preparing a live action adaptation of the film, the announcement was met with a bit of trepidation, to say the least. When it was announced that Scarlett Johansson would be playing the lead role of Motoko Kusanagi, simply called “The Major” in this incarnation, that trepidation became downright disappointment. Well, Paramount has decided to unleash not one, not two, but FIVE teaser trailers for the new film and…Well…Take a look for yourself. (more…)

In The Force Awakens, audiences are first introduced to Rey’s home world of Jakku. Because it is similar to the desert planet of Tatooine from A New Hope, it took a few moments for us to realize that this was a completely different world. One key difference noted is that the planet is littered with remains of a grand battle between the Rebellion and The Empire. Thanks to The Force Awakens companion novels, we know that the final battle of the Galactic Civil War ended on this planet and it is known as “The Battle of Jakku” where the Rebellion Finally defeated The Empire.
Throughout every Superman film that has graced the silver screen, a heavy emphasis is placed upon his physical strength. As an alien who gets his amazing abilities directly from the yellow sun, it is tough to avoid the focus on those abilities, especially when he’s duking it out with the likes of Doomsday or Zod. As humans, however, many times we fight foes that are much more destructive and deadly than The Blue Boyscout’s enemies; battles that Supes himself couldn’t win. In June of 2005, comic book writer Jeph Loeb was one of the many that felt the devastating effects of one such foe when is son, Sam Loeb, succumbed to his battle with cancer at the age of 17. Ten days after his passing, Jeph wrote a very personal story about a young Clark Kent and his brush with the disease. Now, eleven years later, in a fan made film, audiences have a chance to experience the story, and celebrate Sam’s life, in a whole new way. (more…)
Some movies have a backstory that’s almost as legendary as the films themselves, and Clerks is definitely in that category. As the story goes, young Kevin Smith was stuck in a deadend job as a Quick Stop clerk when he got an idea: “I’ll make a movie about my boring ass life as a clerk.” He maxed out all sorts of credit cards, filmed the movie overnight in the actual store he worked in, and took the finished film to Sundance where it was sold to the Weinsteins, and the rest, as they say, is history. Well a new film called Shooting Clerks will begin touring this fall to reveal that history in presumably hysterical fashion. (more…)
