Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has fans flipping their lids. The animation, the music, the voice acting, is all on another level from what Marvel has previously done with their animated features. With the latest trailer release, we get to see even more of what we can expect this Christmas. Are you ready to enter the Spider-Verse?
Comic-Con has come (verified) and gone and now we’re left with stories about Nic Cage in space, Hellboy screwfests, redheaded sith lords, Ryan Reynolds and the best CGI costume that he has ever worn (we’re talking about the Deadpool footage, not Green Lantern. Promise), our #LounginWithLoggins initiative, a trip to the stars with Batmanaughey and more things, like: (more…)
Remember the dignity and the gravitas of the above scene in Simon West‘s Con Air? Where madman Cyrus The Virus (John Malkovich) threatens the life of the stuffed rabbit badass Army Ranger Cameron Poe (Nicholas Cage) bought for his daughter?
Well, say goodbye to this kind of serious, intelligent filmmaking if West has his way. The director has recently admitted that he’d like to set a sequel to his modern classic in space!
1997’s Con Air made $223 mil. at the box-office worldwide, and has become utterly ubiquitous on cable and broadcast television–odds are, it’s playing right now somewhere. Follow me after the jump for the bewildering plans Simon West has for Con Air 2: (more…)
This time on The Bastardcast, Jeremy and Jason thread each other’s eyebrows and discuss the Spider-Man evil cinematic universe of evil, the return of Community, and we gaze into our crystal skulls to look at the future of the Indiana Jonesfranchise. (more…)
With Jeff Wadlow‘s Kick-Ass 2 hitting theaters in just under a month, Universal has released four new TV spots to remind people just how there they are. And and all the othersare all there, that’s for sure.
This week on The Bastardcast, Jason and Jeremy trick Badass Digest’s Evan Saathoff into coming on the show and then they talk about Universal Soldier, the best and worst of Jean-Claude Van Damme‘s time on this earth.
Also on the show: Nic Cage bought a pyramid for which to die in, Mark Hamill is going to talk to somebody official about being in Star Wars someday, Kevin Smith wants to teach stoners how to read, and Batman is more hazardous to young boys than a [insert stock catholicism joke here]
Jason and Jeremy also try to form words about the unholy joining of Michael Bay and Megan Fox for a movie about Turtles that may be Teenage Ninjas and Sony’s big invisible video game system is revealed… we think.
The Bastardcast: We’d eat a person if the circumstances demanded it.
This time on The Bastardcast: Jeremy busts out of a courtroom and Jason escapes a post-apocalyptic New Jersey to talk about Nic Cage, a WOW playing senator, Doctor Who, the Justice League (of Alabama) and a few things Superman. Then briefly breaking to sexually fantasize about Joe Biden before taking on the main event.
The sale of LucasFilm to Disney and why it will consume the Internet over the 36 months.
After that melange of mayhem, the boys tackle this week’s ultimate question in VS: Whose the better commander n’ chief, Pullman in Independence Day or Camacho in Idiocracy?
While the production of Kick-Ass 2 hasn’t officially begun, a few minor details regarding the cast and plot have a emerged online.
According to MovieHole.net, one big thing that can be confirmed is the return of Chloe Mortez. Who’ll be reprising her role as Hit-Girl, the little bitch assassin.
Of course they would recast her. She fucking nailed it as the pint-sized, foul-mouthed, puberty challenged vigilante. A sequel just wouldn’t be the same with out her. One slight hiccup, however. It’s been 2+ years since the first Kick-Ass. Chloe has grown-up a whole lot since then. Literally. She’s got tits and stuff! Can a fully developed teenager be accepted as an 11-year old? I dunno, that’s a tough one. Though, come to think of it, age defining roles didn’t stop the cast of Harry Potter, now did it?
As far as the other core cast members are concerned, Aaron Johnson and ChristopherMintz-Plasse will be back as well. Universal Pictures is also trying to convince Garrett M. Brown to reprieve his role as Dave’s (aka Kick Ass) father. Apparently, his role is much bigger this time around. Auditions are also about to get underway for Uncle Ralph, the crook guardian of Chris/Red Mist.
OK, so the main cast is back. No fucking surprise there. Now, what of the story?
The story will be similar to Superman 2 where someone finds out about the heroes’ identities — mostly Dave and Mindy. Dave’s identity as “Kick-Ass” is only revealed to one important person and it is said to have repercussions. Hit-Girl’s identity will be known by the general public and it gets her in to the awkward stage of society as it will cause a lot of people to make fun of her behind her back. Her problems cause her to be nicknamed “Captain Muffin-Muncher”. However — the worst of her problems will come from the highest of the anarchy of stuck-up girls — Brooke who is said the be the usual prissy stuck-up bitch who has a gang of followers that she can control (think Mean Girls?) who also manages to gain control of Lois (who will ultimately form a bond with Mindy). Eventually, Hit-Girl will get revenge against the band of girls in a spectacular fashion that will involve gadgetry, projectile vomiting and a lot of begging.
So…same cast, new issues, more vomit. Sounds promising. We’ll keep you posted as news rolls out in the coming weeks and months.
Compilations, montages, supercuts. Whatever you want to call them, lately, they’re everywhere. I like calling ’em supercuts. It’s fun to say. Supercuts. Suuuppeeerrcuts. See?
Anyway, supercuts are videos comprised of only one thing from either movies, television, video games or cartoons repeated over and over and over again. There are Star Wars supercuts, My Little Pony supercuts, Game of Thrones supercuts, Quentin Tarantino supercuts, and even a supercut focusing on the “Spielberg Face.” Basically, if some savvy video editor starts to notice recurring cliches, lines, or even camera shots they’re going to edit ’em all together into one massive supercut.
Here we’ve got a superb collection of 25 supercuts spanning all kinds of things. Check ’em out and let us know which is your favorite! I know we haven’t included every excellent supercut so if you’ve got a favorite we missed share it in the comments below and help us make this an ultimate collection.
Every Single Fucking Dude from The Big Lebowski [TannerStraus]
He’s just, “the Dude,” y’know? What an enviable title, who wouldn’t want to be known by one and all as, “the Dude”? This style of supercut is pretty common, an edit of one word or phrase repeated again and again, but there’s something about hearing “Dude” continually repeated I find calming. It’s good for my zen.
Acting. For some its a job, others a craft and to Nicholas Cage it is a stereophonic peanut butter bowling ball waterfall because he is insane. We know the dude is crazy and thankfully he continues to new and exciting ways to prove it to us. Talking with Empire recently, he gave us some insight on how he prepared for playing Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider. He starts of with the usual method acting speech, hits you with a right jab of lunacy and BAM! Out of nowhere a left hook of 100% pure bat shit insane.
“It was the first time that I played Ghost Rider. Blaze was easy; I knew he was a man who had been living with a curse for eight years of having his head light on fire, and the tone that would take. I compared him to a cop, or a paramedic who develops a dark sense of humour to cope with the horrors he has seen. But Blaze has also caused the horrors, so he’s hiding out because he doesn’t want to hurt anyone else.”
Yep, pretty much the typical. You can see any actor saying something to this effect, right? Well get ready cause he is about to go full on Nic Cage after the jump.
