The highly controversial, but no less impressive, Terminator: Genysis seems to be pulling out all the stops for this third time’s the charm attempt to make a bigger, better franchise for the cyborg saga. The seemingly ambitious project  looks to re-write Terminator history so that this fifth installment is neither a remake or a reboot, while at the same time it recasts the classic roles from the 30-year-old film to tell a new story that takes place inside the original film. Only Arnold Schwarzenegger remains of course, he will play the older, yet still bad ass, T-800. Here’s the weird thing, in the last trailer, the film revealed what looked like a pretty big spoiler. And now, in the new poster and TV ad, it seems as if Genisys is doubling and tripling down on the spoilage. The good news, at least in the case of the TV commercial, is that it’s Japanese. So you’re fairly unlikely to see it if you’re hoping to avoid spoilers.


It’s one of the most mysterious projects to be coming out in 2015, and it will be in theaters smack dab in the middle of one of the busiest “Summer of Sequels” in the increasingly long, sad Hollywood history of franchise dependence. Originality is hard to come by in Tinseltown these days, and certainly recent evidence (Jupiter Ascending and Chappie) seems to indicate that people would rather trust the devil they know when it comes to high-profile sci-fi/fantasy films, but can Tomorrowland buck that trend? Disney is hoping so, even though they’re set to make it rain in 2015 with The Avengers and Star Wars alone, and the studio’s looking to convince fans further that Brad Bird’s latest film is definitely worth checking out when it’s released next month.

Marvel Studios and Netflix have announced a late Easter treat for superheo fans: Daredevil. The first of five series co-produced by Marvel and Netflix has been in the works since last summer, and is now just four months away from mass consumption according to the video streaming site. Daredevil, based on the super-powered crimefighter created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett, will be the latest test for the Marvel empire launching the series on – drumroll please – April 10, 2015. As per usual, all 13 episodes of the series will be available for immediate binge watching obsessive types just after midnight on April 10, hopefully tidying over Marvel fans just a few short weeks before Avengers: Age of Ultron. By the way, that’s not all the Daredevil news we’ve got. See below. (more…)


The childlike wonder with which Mark Wahlberg delivers the declaration “GUYS, I THINK WE JUST FOUND A TRANSFORMER!” will go down in the annals of history as maybe one of the best line readings EVER. Despite having hated all of Michael Bay’s previous Transformers motion pictures, my ticket for Terry Hoytes v. Robots is 100% sold (fuck Batman v. Superman — this is the really real cinematic showdown). Now there’s an international trailer (complete with Chinese (?) subtitles) to sell the remaining few of you who weren’t already down with this clash of titans. (more…)

The MPAA Fears Eva Green’s Breasts, Should You?


We all know Eva Green is hot, but banned by the MPAA hot?! Apparently. News broke this afternoon that a new poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For featuring Ms Green as Ava Lord looking deliriously sexy, loaded for bear and barely covered up, was banned by the MPAA, meaning that it won’t be hanging up in a theater near you. For reasons that are both sad and obvious, the poster skirts a little too close to that MPAA red line between suggestive nudity and “in-your-face” nudity. Or to look at it another way, is this poster more Playboy than Maxim? (more…)


Michael Bay really loves big, scaly beasts, as he’s doubled down on the dragons in Tranformers: Age of Extinction, letting them not only act as steeds for the titular robots, but also write songs for his latest three-hour toy commercial*.

Wait…there aren’t any dragons actually in Imagine Dragons? It’s only a gaggle of bro-ed out white dudes? Far less interesting. Though also much more plausible. Could you imagine going to a concert where the whole band was comprised of fire-breathing monsters? It’d be the scariest thing this side of a Miley Cyrus show.



The FX Network is showing that they’ve got some serious gall when it comes to their original series. Not only does American Horror Story have some of the freakiest imagery on cable TV, Sons of Anarchy has pushed the limits of TV-MA with its sex and ultra-violence, while Louie has proven itself to be the most artistically minded sitcom ever created. Now comes The Strain, Guillermo del Toro’s vampire series. And if the latest poster and promo are to be believed, it’s going to fit in just fine with the rest of the network’s challenging line-up.



As the schedules for SDCC have been announced and fans are getting an idea of what to expect at the Nerd Mecca this year, Disney has released the official poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  This is in anticipation that Marvel‘s got a panel at the SDCC where they will be talking about the film and possibly sharing some more goodies with the fans.

The first official poster is simple, but says a lot.  Hit the jump to get a look at it before we say any more!



You like that? It could be yours if you go to the midnight IMAX screening of Iron Man 3 at your local IMAX theater, according to Screen Rant. The poster was designed by comic book artist Jock (The Losers, Hellblazer), and is the latest in 12:01 poster series, which previous has included unique works honoring the release Real Steel, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Frankenweenie.

In other Iron Man 3 new, Marvel Studios head honcho and Iron Man 3 producer Kevin Feige recently talked to the LA Times about Tony Stark’s mind set going into the movie, and where the character’s head is at this point in his story arc. Here’s what Feige had to say:

“He’s experienced things now that frankly was a wake-up call. You don’t have gamma-powered strength that anger can bring about. You don’t have super-soldier serum flowing through your veins. You’re not a thunder god from Asgard. You’re just a guy. And Tony doesn’t necessarily like to be reminded of those kinds of things because he likes to be at the top of the food chain.

“Where we meet Tony, he wants to be in that suit all the time, and he wants a lot of suits around him. And just as we sort of learn that’s his issue, we blow them all up and take him out of that comfort zone.

“We wanted to take Tony to a place that he hadn’t been since the first half of the first ‘Iron Man’ film, which is, essentially, by himself without his money, without his toys, without his gadgets, with just his mind, his intellect. We wanted to do that in a big climactic fashion by literally taking away everything that is near and dear to him, as symbolized in that mansion crumbling down into the Pacific.”

In other Iron Man 3 developments, a new featurette has been released, and it outlines just how Extremis comes into play in the film and how it factors into The Mandarin’s (Ben Kingsley) master plan. Included is commentary by director Shane Black, star Robert Downey Jr., and new head henchman James Badge Dale. Press play below (courtesy of Collider):

Finally, from the people who have more time on their hands than I do (and Geeks Are Sexy), a break down of just how much it costs to be Tony Stark. Enjoy!
