Hilariously Bizarre Captain America: Civil War Promo Has The Avengers Singing

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A couple of years back, the “Honest Trailer” for Guardians of the Galaxy poked fun at the fact that Marvel Studios are so successful that they can now do whatever they please in their movies, hence why they’re able to say: “F*ck you, we’re Marvel Studios!” Well, proving that point is the Captain America: Civil War TV spot above which pretty much confirms that the studio can promote their releases however they damn well please.

Featuring Chris Evans reciting a powerful speech about what makes Captain America: Civil War‘s titular hero so great, he’s joined by Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, and a lurking Sebastian Stan (he was on the side of the Russians as The Winter Soldier remember) as they sing “The Hymn Of The Republic.”

This promo is somewhat reminiscent of the “Ants!” one »

Who Wore It Best? 80s Adventure Hunks Edition

14 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Dancin' Dan here with a little bit of Actor Month fun. Witness has already hit us with its best shots, but I'm not quite ready to let Harrison Ford go just yet. Watching Witness for the first time can make you yearn for younger Ford, because.... Man was he so perfectly, ruggedly handsome in the 80s (and throughout most of the 90s). None of his roles captured that ruggedly handsome side of him quite so much as Indiana Jones, who is one of the best movie characters of all time.

But I'm unfairly stuffing the ballot box before the question. Who wore the "80s Adventurer Look" best? Tell us in the comments!

Harrison Ford's brilliant almost fearless (why did it have to be snakes?) archelogist/adventurer Indiana Jones is a prime hunk of man, but not exactly alone in the world of ruggedly handsome 80s franchise adventurers... There is »

Blu-ray Review – Firewalker (1986)

4 April 2016 3:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Firewalker, 1986.

Directed by J. Lee Thompson.

Starring Chuck Norris, Louis Gossett Jr., Melody Anderson, Sonny Landham, Will Sampson, John Rhys-Davies, Ian Abercrombie.

Synopsis:

A pair of hapless adventurers take on a job to find priceless Aztec gold but are pursued by a vengeful spirit who will stop at nothing to protect it.

Back in the mid-1980s there was a brief moment when ripping off Indiana Jones movies was a thing and, as was the norm, it was the legendary Cannon Films who were the masterminds behind many of those low-budget gems. Whilst the mainstream responded to Harrison Ford’s archaeological adventures with the likes of the slick Michael Douglas-led romp Romancing the Stone, Cannon gave us the lacklustre King Solomon’s Mines and its sequel Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (both of which featured a young Sharon Stone alongside Richard Chamberlain in the lead role »

The director of Night At The Museum, Shawn Levy, is tackling a remake of John Carpenter's Starman...

The cinema of John Carpenter has already been heavily pillaged for remakes over the past decade or so, but up until now, Starman has been excused. However, plans are now afoot to revisit the 1984 sci-fi flick, that originally starred Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen.

The original Starman saw an alien visit Earth in response to a message from Nasa. He then takes on the body of Bridges, and a chase ensues. The new Starman is being panned by Arash Amel (Grace Of Monaco) with Michael Douglas reprising his position as producer.

Directing this time will be Shawn Levy, best known for the likes of Real Steel and the Night At The Museum trilogy. We're promised that the new film will be set in the 21st century, and thus brought up to date. »
