The Kingsman

Matthew Vaughn – of Kick Ass and X-men: First Class fame –  has directed a new movie based on Mark Miller’s (Kick-Ass 1 & 2) comic book that has got us real excited here at NerdBastards.

Jackson and an awesome little pug named Jack Bauer. Check em out below peepsters. (more…)

A new trailer hit last night for Matthew Vaughn‘s Kingsman: The Secret Service featuring a brand new track from Iggy Azalea along with singer Ellie Goudling. Based on The Secret Service comic book created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. All indicators point toward a fun super secret spy agency type movie, although I do have to say that when I saw this trailer my first thought was, Harry Potter goes to Spy school. Give the trailer a go and then let’s discuss it below. (more…)

Rumor Patrol – Samuel L. Jackson Wanted for ‘Die Hard 6′ Return

- 04-15-14Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

For many, Die Hard with a Vengeance was the last good Die Hard movie; for others though, Die Hard was the last good Die Hard movie, so let’s just say it’s a contentious debate and leave it at the idea that A Good Day to Die Hard was horrid, horrid, horrid! Still, it collected a few coins at the worldwide box office, and Bruce Willis said he’d enjoy another go in John McCain’s shoes, so a follow-up is inevitable. But will it suck? Perhaps Fox is buttressing their odds by adding one of the reasons that Vengeance was so enjoyable, by re-teaming Willis with Samuel L. Jackson. (more…)

Following-up on last night’s awesome tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be welcoming back a senior member of the now-compromised world security organization for an episode late this month. True, it was reported early this week that Col. Nick Fury in the person of Samuel L. Jackson would be back for S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season finale, but Maria Hill, and her portrayer, Cobie Smulders, will be back before the end of April. If that’s all you want to know, bail now because Winter Soldier and S.H.I.E.L.D. spoilers follow. (more…)

The (Sort of) Story Behind ‘Winter Soldier’s ‘Pulp FIction’ Reference

- 04-08-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

In-jokes are all the rage these days, a fun way to acknowledge that your cast has a life outside the movie you are presently seeing them in, and probably few actors lend themselves to the in-joke better than Samuel L. Jackson. The actor has had roles big and small in a great many of the most iconic movies of the last 20 years, but perhaps none are more known, or quotable, than Pulp Fiction. It would not be out of the question to say that the Quentin Tarantino movie made Jackson a star, and it did so with one monologue in particular. Jackson’s new movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, paid tribute to it one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene, and the film’s directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, recently explained how and why they decided to do it. Spoilers follow. (more…)

What is it, like 20 days till this thing is finally released? Quit teasing us Marvel! We’re more than hyped up enough!
