Well, here’s an odd bit of news about the Ghostbusters reboot. We already know that the movie won’t be the one that most people were hoping for, with the original cast and director (through no fault of theirs, to be sure). We’ve also seen a gender-swap that will take the franchise in a different direction. There will also be no connection to the original Ghostbusters franchise, meaning this is flick is on its own. So with so many changes, one more oddity won’t hurt, right? So what’s the news? Chris Hemsworth, none-other-than Thor himself, will be taking on the role of the Ghostbusters’ receptionist. (more…)
It’s the lunch hour, so why not make some time to get stoked about the biggest comic book movie of all time (to date): Avengers: Age of Ultron. The internet’s been exploding the last several days with new clips and promotion of the Marvel Studios film, which remains two very anxious weeks away from release. But perhaps your desire for superhero fun and excitement can be fed with the following clips. The stars of Avengers were very busy yesterday with red carpets and talk show appearances, while the studio is busy releasing new scenes, and new advertisements to convince fans who were already excited about this project mere minutes after 2012’s The Avengers ended, why they should be even more excited.
It’s often said that Hollywood is Highschool with money. While that is mostly true, in the case of the cast and crew of Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s summer camp without the counselors (except not really). What is certain, is this rag tag crew of actors dressed as superheroes like each other a heck of a lot, and sure know how to have fun on set.
A new Avengers: Age of Ultron behind-the-scenes featurette shows what goofs and good times the likes of RDJ, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and the rest of the AOU cast were having on set. (more…)
While there were a lot of rumors floating around last year about a complete reboot and franchise building trilogy of Snake Plisskin films, that was all just smoke and mirrors. The movie rights were still up in the air and it wasn’t until recently that a clear front-runner emerged. Now the smoke has cleared and the rights to Escape From New York have been scooped up by FOX, but what do they plan to do with them? (more…)
When it was announced that the third Thor movie, which will be in a theater near you in the summer of 2017, was going to be subtitled Ragnarok, there were a lot of questions about the full meaning of the word in the context of the Thunder God’s next solo adventure. “Ragnarok” literally means “the final destiny of the gods,” which can be taken any number of ways, but that word “final” has some very specific implications. So we’re forced to wonder, is Ragnarok going to be a blood bath? Will it be, in effect, the final Thor solo adventure? We can’t answer that last question, but one of the co-writer’s is definitely pointing to an affirmative on that first question. (more…)

Details are sparse, but the big announcement was that a female character will be filling the gap and taking up Thor’s hammer and powers. (more…)
It’s one of those projects that seems to have no one excited, but the studio seems dead-set to proceed with anyway, but there has been some movement on the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel. The new film based on the 2012 hit revisionist fairy tale will be under the guidance of Shawshank Redemption filmmaker and Walking Dead TV series creator Frank Darabont, his first film since the Stephen King adaptation The Mist in 2007. Not only is Darabont’s involvement the rumor du jour about the project, but sources are saying this sequel will tilt a little more towards one character in the title than the other. (more…)
