Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the most successful Marvel films ever made, besides the Avengers films themselves, so it comes as no surprise that a sequel was immediately put into the works. Guardians was a surprise to many, it was a lesser known property that kind of came out of left field and took everyone by surprise by how good it was. A lot of how good it was is due to the film’s director, James Gunn, who is also helming the upcoming sequel. It’s just been confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is officially happening, which is good news for fans of the franchise. But Gunn has spoken out and said he might not be the one directing the film. (more…)
Director J.A. Boyona has recently released a new photo teasing the upcoming Jurassic World sequel. Boyona is known for his work on A Monster Calls and The Impossible. Not much is known about the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, aside from the fact that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will both be returning. Other cast have signed on, but the only other returning cast member will be BD Wong who plays the (seemingly ageless) lab scientist Henry Wu, also appearing in the original Jurassic Park film.

Everyone who loves the gritty, dark, and demented world of Spawn knows the 1997 Spawn movie wasn’t the best. Although it had its moments, true Spawn fans expected even grittier and darker and weren’t all that pleased with the John Leguizamo rendition of Clown either (he did his best, guys). Now, Todd McFarlane himself claims that the new reboot of the Spawn movie will definitely hold true to its original grit and give fans that dark, warped world they so desperately wanted all along.

You’ve probably seen the gritty super soldier in action on the pages of old Valiant Comics. Splattering blood, flashing guns, and a big red circle on his chest are what truly make Bloodshot one totally awesome comic book character. However, unlike the countless superhero films being released this year, Bloodshot is not the most familiar household name on the market and this is exactly what the valiant efforts of Valiant hope to conquer.

Warren Beatty got confused and everything went off the rails. The award for Best Picture at last nights 2017 Oscar ceremony was given to Moonlight after presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that La La Land had won best picture. As the film’s producers were making their acceptance speeches, producer Jordan Horowitz informed viewers that the category’s winner was actually Moonlight, and showed the card announcing the winner to the camera. What happened? Beatty had accidentally been handed the envelope for “Best Supporting Actress In A Leading Role” which had been awarded to Emma Stone just moments before. Somehow the card got recycled back into the mix, Beatty got it, and the rest, well, the rest is history.
In what has become the biggest snafu (or perhaps preplanned flub to generate buzz?) in Oscar history, the Internet responded the only way it could, with salty Tweets and .Gifs. Here’s a round up of some of the very best. (more…)
Things seemingly weren’t looking good for Ben Affleck‘s solo Batman movie. First there was the fallout of Batman v Superman which was panned by critics and rocked Affleck pretty hard – #SadAffleck. Then there was the uncertainty with the script, which Affleck had repeatedly said variations of “it’s ready when it’s ready” and “I won’t do it unless it’s perfect”. With the culminating pressure of starring in, writing, and directing one of the biggest comic book licenses of all time, Affleck had made the shocking announcement that he will no longer be directing The Batman. Some fans, of course, went into a tale spin over this, thinking the project was dead, that Affleck is done with Batman, and that he’s keeping his apathy silenced until Justice League rolls out.
Well, weary not Batfleck fans. The Batman is still on. The script is good. Affleck will once again don those Bat tights. And as word would have it, a replacement director has been confirmed. (more…)
A lot of actors from Game of Thrones have been cast in other things lately (Emilia Clarke in the Han Solo movie, Maisie Williams in iBoy), and it leads many to wonder whether these are early signs of deaths in the season to come. The latest Game of Thrones cast member to score work outside of Westeros is Alfie Allen, aka Theon Greyjoy. He’s just been cast in the new Predator movie to be directed by Shane Black. (more…)

Now, we’re talking! After months of dry, boring episodes from The Walking Dead, things are starting to pick up. Rick and company have gone from being sad, little puppy dogs, back to the bad ass warriors we all know and love. While this weeks episode lacked in the action department, it gave us a few moments where we at least THOUGHT there would be some really cool action scenes. That may not sound like much, but for those of you who stuck around for the first half of the season, the hope of action is better than no hope at all.
Remember a year and a half ago before The Force Awakens came out when Star Wars merchandise suddenly popped up and started appearing everywhere? Well that was actually a marketing trick by Disney to get people excited about the new movie and to sell more toys called Star Wars Force Friday. Disney has just announced that they are going to be doing the same thing this year with Force Friday II in preparation for The Last Jedi release.This year the event will take place on September 1st.
In honor of this announcement, Disney has released a teaser image of this marketing campaign featuring our three new Star Wars heroes, Rey, Poe, and Finn (more…)
