‘The Hobbit: There And Back Again’ Might Be Getting A Title Change

- 04-17-14Film Posted by Brandon Marcus

Hobbit

The Hobbit: There And Back Again is a fine title for the third and final installment of Peter Jackson’s trilogy. It’s taken from the book, it’s catchy and suggests the film is the last chapter in the tale.

Good as it may be, it might not be the title Warner Bros. sticks with.

Zack Snyder Talks About the Creative Process & Screen Testing the Trinity

- 04-17-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

I know. Marvel’s kicking DC’s @$$, Warners is grapsing desperately to catch up, Zack Snyder is a hollow, talentless hack; all the talking points for why Man of Steel 2 (AKA: Batman Vs Superman) will be handing its lunch money to Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016. But let’s put all that aside for the moment and talk about expectations. Not yours or mine, but the director’s. Snyder is talking about his own ideas, how he struck upon the notion that led to the movie known to all Batman Vs Superman, and he’s also talking about those initial screen tests for the costumes on the holy trinity: Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. (Sadly, the above image is as close as you’ll get to seeing it for yourself… For nooooooowwwwwwww…) (more…)

Even if you’re not a religious Arrowhead like me, you’ve still likely been drawn in to the amazing writing and execution of the latest season of CW’s Arrow series. The first season was pretty rocky, but they’ve stepped up their game and have been delivering some seriously quality television. But with only five episodes left, it’s about time to start wondering what they plan on doing for season 3. Luckily, Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg has stepped up to talk a little bit about the show and where they might be taking it.  (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ – S02E19 – “The Man Under The Hood”

- 04-17-14Comics, Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Sarah Moran

Two weeks ago, Arrow dropped some serious bombshells. Not only did Slade (Manu Bennet) continue to wage war on Oliver (Stephen Amell), but he revealed to Thea (Willa Holland) her true parentage and told Laurel (Katie Cassidy) The Arrow’s secret identity. Last night’s episode mostly dealt with the repercussions of those bombshells, but the progression of events plodded along in such a way it was difficult to ever really appreciate any developments. There was simply too much going on in “The Man Under The Hood” to give any of its interesting threads the time and energy required. (more…)

Robin Williams to Return for ‘Mrs. Doubtfire 2′, Hopefully With New Children to Care For

I’m not really sure how this is going to work (yet I really can’t wait to see them try), but there’s now a Mrs. Doubtfire 2 in the works, despite the fact that it has been twenty years since Chris Columbus’ initial film hit theaters. Robin Williams (who co-produced the first) is returning to star in the film, more than likely hoping to replicate the original’s $440 million worldwide box office take. Since the children are now all grown, I can only hope that this somehow becomes Williams and Columbus’ White Madea series, if only for the potential of a Tyler Perry crossover.

A race war led by two weird dudes in old lady drag? The possibilities seem endless.

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ News – ‘X-Men: DOFP’ After Credits Scene and More Info on Movie #3

- 04-17-14Comics, Film Posted by Jason McAnelly

unnamed

Today we have some Amazing Spider-Man 2 news that actually has NOTHING to do  with marketing spam (well, not directly)! I know, I can’t believe it either. But with the  movie coming up in just a few weeks, I guess they feel comfortable enough with what  they’ve put out there thus far? Anyways, the new information is regarding a couple of  interesting things. The first is that, oddly enough, Amazing Spider-Man 2 will feature no TASM after-credits scene, but it will feature a clip from the upcoming X-Men: Days  of Future Past. The other, more sane-sounding bit of news is that some folks are finally talking about what we might see in Amazing Spider-Man 3. Scroll down for all the juicy  info. (more…)
