Fox, obviously hoping to quietly put the whole summer blockbuster boondoggle that was Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four behind them, removed the planned 2017 sequel from their upcoming schedule. You might expect that would be it, but we’re not going to let them get away with it. At least not quietly. (more…)
If this week’s Supergirl episode, “How Does She Do It?,” seemed off, it was for good reason: In response to the Paris attacks, CBS wisely decided to swap out episodes 4 and 5 due to episode 4’s focus on a mad (more like slightly perturbed) bomber planting and/or detonating bombs around National City. On a series that’s built around some measure of continuity, especially where the central relationships are concerned, the jump forward – followed by a jump back – threw the delicate, season-long, relationship- and arc-building into minor disarray. At least now, though, viewers know what some of the seemingly cryptic comments in episode 5 meant (e.g., references to bombings, babysitting, and a renewed romantic relationship) now that episode 4 has seen the light of day (or rather night).

Last week was a rather mediocre episode of Gotham, mainly focusing on character development and doing it in a mostly unexciting way. We saw The Penguin and Nygma making friends and having revelations. We saw Jim Gordon struggling with his dark side and winning…er, losing… or perhaps just coming to no set resolution. We also saw Selina trying to save Bruce from the mechanizations of Galavan’s nasty little niece, Silver St. Cloud. And, of course, Galavan’s monks showed up in town, ready to start causing havoc and murdering boy billionaires. This week steers the story toward Bruce even as Gordon and Galavan face off in the prelude to the ultimate showdown. Scroll on for a recap of ‘The Son of Gotham’. (more…)
Ever since original Mystery Science Theater 3000 co-creator Joel Hodgson announced his Kickstarter campaign to create new episodes of the seminal geeky-late-night, movie-riffing television series, fans everywhere have been giddy with excitement. The Kickstarter has already made enough to do a few episodes, with hopefully more to be unlocked as the campaign’s monetary total grows. In a recent update, Hodgson announced that Felicia Day has been hand-picked to play the new Mad Scientist “token bad guy” in the MST3K reboot.
The internet has been a firestorm of curse words and chimichangas ever since it was announced that Ryan Reynolds would officially don the red-and-black of Marvel’s kookiest superhero, Deadpool, in feature-film form. Reynolds has been relishing in every opportunity he has given to talk directly to the cameras in promos and give us glimpses of The Merc with the Mouth, and we’ve recently been blessed with a brand-new clip. In a hilarious new video, Reynolds announces his appearance at the Sao Paulo Comic Con, where 20th Century Fox will be hosting a panel on Friday, December 4th.
The folks over at HBO sure do know how to toy with our emotions. Game of Thrones fans were in a state of a frenzied mixture of disbelief and denial following *REDACTED* “death” in the Season 5 finale, despite the actor himself stating afterwards that, as far as he knew, the character was really and truly dead. Director David Nutter even confirmed they had killed our Dear *REDACTED*; even at the risk of breaking President Obama’s heart. And yet now, they’ve released a new teaser poster for Season 6 that has us all going back to the drawing board with our HE LIVES theories. (more…)
It’s been quite a year for Alien developments. Way back in February, we started seeing hints that a new Alien sequel was in development under the supervision of District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp, and then production began ramping up on Ridley Scott‘s sequel to Prometheus. In the last couple of months though it’s Scott’s movie
Prometheus 2 Alien: Paradise Lost Alien: Covenant that has taken prescience, while Alien 5 was put on “indefinite hold,” but now “indefinite” seems not so definite. One of the stars of the Alien franchise, Michael Biehn, is saying that his next adventure in the Alien universe merely awaits the release of Scott’s. (more…)
Hollywood Marketing Departments certainly love a good movie contest, hoping to raise awareness and spark some fan interaction across the Internet.
