After a very successful theatrical run ($860.6 million USD!) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to household screens (legally) later this month. Of course this means that the James Gunn directed smarmy spaceman/talking tree/angry trash panda sequel will hit digital and physical video packed with bonus features and deleted scenes, right? Of course! and you can check out one of those features, the gag reel, here, Now! BELOW! (more…)
As you’ve undoubtedly heard, Game of Thrones is the most pirated show in the world. Although millions and millions of people tune into the show every Sunday night on HBO, millions and millions more torrent or stream the show on various pirate sites. If you’re one of the latter, you may already know that the next episode of season 7 has already made its way online. It’s another blow to the premium cable channel who’s been on pins and needles all week worrying about a leak after it was announced they were hacked. Just one thing, this leak didn’t come from the hack, or the hackers. (more…)
Thanks to Netflix, a new generation of fans are being brought into the world of Voltron (with the release of Voltron Legendary Defenders Season 3 just dropping this morning!). Back in the 1980s, kids could play with a special die-cast set of all the tigers and combine them into a tall Voltron set. It was cool, but it was also very expensive so few kids had them and they are highly collectible now. With so many new toys hitting the market, it’s time for a new Voltron set anyone can afford and play with, so LEGO has come to the rescue by approving a fanmade set of the legendary hero!
With the summer movie season winding down, many of the heavy hitters have already hit theaters. While such movies like Beauty and the Beast ($504 Million), Wonder Woman ($396 Million), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 ($387 Million) have been making serious bank, these films also had massive budgets for film production and marketing costs. Sure, they’re making a large amount of money through box office receipts and merchandising, but they don’t have the biggest Return on Investment (ROI) for their massive budgets. Turns out the most successful film of 2017 so far did not involve talking silverware, Amazonians, or superhero raccoons, but instead were small budget horror films.
In a move that will sweep the leg out from many fans, YouTube Red has ordered sequel to the classic 1984 Karate Kid which will star Ralph Macchio as Daniel Russo and William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence. Set 30 years after their intense tournament fight the sequel finds the pair back at it. Check out the details below. (more…)
If you hadn’t noticed, Disney has been doing a few live-action remakes of some of their greatest films. So far, we have seen a live-action (with some hefty CGI) version of The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. Disney has been working on future releases of The Little Mermaid and other hit animated films, but it seems we might get to see The Lion King with Chiwetel Ejiofor potentially playing Scar in the near future.
Looking back at the original Death Wish in 1974, Michael Winner‘s film starring a then-53-year-old Charles Bronson is a time capsule. The 70s saw ever escalating crime rates in America, and the population felt powerless before a rising tide of particularly urban violence where random shootings, muggings and other attacks were becoming a daily reality. Understandably, people thought that one man with gun and the guts to dispense rough justice might have been the answer, hence the popularity of Winner’s Death Wish, even though several cultural commentators felt that Winner’s film was feeding America negative reinforcement of easy justice at the end of a gun held in the right hands.

After what can charitably be described as “a carreer lull” (and can uncharitably be described as “The Crappening”), M. Night Shyamalan is enjoying an impressive resurgence, with many seeing his recent work, particularly, this year’s Split, as a remarkable return to form. Fans are excited then that his next project, Glass, will combine the universes of two of his most beloved films: Unbreakable and Split. According to reports, the much-anticipated project could start shooting as early as next month. (more…)
