terminator-genisys-114434

So we’ve been burned twice in the attempt to reboot Terminator without James Cameron and turn it into an epic trilogy filled with trills, chills and spills, all to make some mad bills at the box office. Now Terminator 3 had its moments, and Terminator Salvation had potential until they wussed out on the ending, but can there truly be a satisfying chapter of this series without the man whose vision started it all? That’s the question that Terminator Genisys will try to answer, and from the looks of it, the movie is pulling out all the time travel stops with paradoxes and retconning – TO THE MAX! But now there’s a new twist provided in the latest trailer. Which you can or cannot watch for yourself below. (more…)

agents-of-shield-season-2-640x320

The second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been so much improved over the first season that we barely even noticed that a fairly important player from that initial series has been missing and largely unmentioned in the first 15 episodes of year two. That all changed last night when Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) found themselves in a jam and were forced to ask an old friend for help. The secret was kept pretty good, and we’ll keep it till after the jump just in case you haven’t watched the episode yet, but for fans of the Joss Whedon repertoire of players, it was a very welcome reprise indeed for the man who basically got the series going.

Fear-The-Walking-Dead1

During last night’s incredible season five finale of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman and AMC premiered the first footage from the new spinoff series Fear the Walking Dead that should hit our television screens this summer. That’s right, no more hiatus and waiting for Walker lovers. Once one series season ends, the other will start right back up. (more…)

Wars 4

Fans of the Star Wars universe, i.e. everyone on the planet, have been absolutely rabid for any information relating to the new universe that Disney is building around the one of the greatest space dramas ever created.  We all know that a new trilogy is happening, with J.J. Abrams at the director wheel for the first movie, and that there are several spinoff movies planned, but other than that, the Mouse House has pretty much kept things quiet on the Star Wars front.  Well, Star Wars fans, get ready to get excited because today, we finally have some news on the revitalized franchise, including the title of the first new Wars spinoff film.  That title, by the way, is Rogue One.

Valiant 6

Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Black Widow, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Spider-Man, Aunt May…These are only a few names of characters with which you are no doubt familiar.  They represent some of the biggest names in comic books and if you haven’t seen them on the big screen yet, you will definitely be seeing them soon.  Now, how about Ninjak? Archer & Armstrong? Bloodshot?  Toyo Harada or Peter Stanchek?  Chances are that if you aren’t a fan of comic books, you may not know any of those names but thanks to a new deal reached between Valiant Entertainment and DMG Entertainment (co-producers of Iron Man 3 and Looper) you will likely know those names very soon.  Through the new deal, some of Vailant’s best characters are about to get some major screen time.

So much for that Ross Bagley comeback you were all counting on… Anyway, casting news! Everyday it seems that we’re actually going to be getting that long (and long and long) anticipated sequel to Independence Day, and nothing says “This is finally going to be a thing,” like casting news. It’s been a busy day for Independence Day 2 casting, which is strong sign because shooting will likely have to begin on the film before summer in order to meet its pre-determined Summer 2016 release date. Sadly, there’s no reason for Ross Bagely to get excited though, for his part, the pivotal role of Will Smith‘s character’s stepson from the first film, will now be played by an entirely new actor.

Last night’s installment of Arrow brought the Emerald Archer back to Starling City, but with Oliver Queen’s return to his hometown now being literally yesterday’s news, we need to know now what’s next for the show. Well, there’s continuing development of the Black Canary for one thing, Ray Palmer suiting up in his A.T.O.M. armor for another, and then there’s the oil and water team-up of Oliver and Malcolm Merlyn to fight Ra’s al Ghul. But if none of that peaks your interest, how about a visit from some old friends. Or make that frenemies. Task Force X is making a comeback, although you may know them better as the Suicide Squad.

Benaroya Pictures adaptation of Stephen King‘s Cell has sold its American rights to Clarius Entertainment. The picture brings John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson back together again for their second King movie since 1408 hit theaters in 2007. 1408 did quite well at the box office, bringing back five times the $25 million dollar budget. Will Cell do as well? (more…)
