Author: Competitions

This March – Kong is back. At 104 feet-tall, he’s coming to cinema screens bigger than ever in the action packed epic “Kong: Skull Island”, which stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman and John C Reilly. To be in with a chance to see Kong before he comes to UK cinemas March 9, we’re giving 5 readers the chance to win a pair of tickets each to the film’s premiere in Leicester Square on 28th February.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Kong: Skull Island” reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.  In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

No plans for a Step Brothers 2, says Will Ferrell

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, here’s some disappointing news for fans of Step Brothers, as Will Ferrell has seemingly closed the door on the long-rumoured sequel to the beloved 2008 comedy.

“You have to resist the temptation,” Ferrell tells Rolling Stone. “It’s just tough because the things everyone wants you to do sequels of are special because there’s not a sequel of it. I guess we’ll see, but as of now there are no plans. We just don’t want to be doing sequels of everything. I think we personally feel great about what we did with Anchorman 2, and I think there are actually some people who like it more than the original. But then you always get that little bit of people saying, ‘Awww, why’d they have to do that?'”

Step Brothers 2 seems to have been on and off over the years, with director Adam McKay revealing »

Step Brothers 2 Probably Won't Happen Says Will Ferrell

22 February 2017 1:48 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Almost nine years ago, Step Brothers, one of Will Ferrell's most beloved movies, made its debut in theaters. In the years since, especially after Anchorman 2 finally got made (even though it didn't live up to the legacy of the original), there has been demand and some possible talk of Step Brothers 2 happening. But that has mostly been put to bed. Both Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay have both weighed in on the potential sequel, saying that there are no plans to make a follow-up right now and that they doubt it will ever happen.

The pair recently spoke with Rolling Stone about Step Brothers 2, which Ferrell and McKay have kicked around ideas for in the past. However, while speaking to Rolling Stone, Will Ferrell made it clear that as of right now, they have no plans to do a sequel to Step Brothers. But they are having to resist some temptation. »

Will Ferrell on 'Step Brothers' Sequel: 'You Have to Resist the Temptation'

21 February 2017 7:57 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In the nine years since the Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly comedy masterpiece Step Brothers hit theaters, fans have been clamoring for a sequel.

Kong Fights a Skull Crawler in Bone-Crunching Skull Island Clip

17 February 2017 2:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just a few weeks left until the March 10 release of Kong: Skull Island, Warner Bros. has unleashed an action-packed new clip, which shows King Kong springing into action against one of the vicious Skull Crawlers. If that wasn't enough, we also have an IMAX featurette, where we hear from stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Jason Mitchell. The video also features Samuel L. Jackson, who compares his character Preston Packard to Ahab from Moby Dick, with King Kong serving as his "white whale." Brie Larson adds how happy she is that they have the "biggest King Kong of them all," which has been teased by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts in the past.

Warner Bros. debuted this clip earlier today, with Fandango premiering the IMAX featurette, which includes plenty of new footage of some of the other creatures on Skull Island. While Kong is certainly king on this island, there are »

It’s Monster Vs. Monster In This Awesome New Clip For Kong: Skull Island

17 February 2017 7:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

King Kong is not to be trifled with. As Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ blockbuster reboot inches closer and closer to its March 10th release, Legendary has spent the past few weeks drumming up excitement with a steady stream of teasers, eye-popping promos and nail-biting clips featuring some nervy exchanges between the human cast of Kong: Skull Island.

But if Samuel L. Jackson’s Lieutenant Colonel Packard and John Goodman’s mysterious Monarch operative Bill Randa took center stage earlier this week, Legendary has now summoned Kong himself to lock horns with one of the island’s many Skull Crawlers. The latter species will no doubt be categorized as another Muto (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Object) when Kong: Skull Island lights up the silver screen, but the real question is whether those Skull Crawlers have any relation to Godzilla, the real king of monsters.

Skull Island is a prequel, remember – just don’t refer »

Will Ferrell & Amy Poehler play casino loving parents in first trailer for The House

17 February 2017 6:09 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The one thing you’re guaranteed with a Will Ferrell comedy is a certain juvenile ambience that takes no brain power to watch, one where you can sit back on a Friday night and put the stresses of the week behind you. The brand new trailer for The House, where Amy Poehler stars as his onscreen wife, has all the exact same ingredients you would expect for this comedy concoction.

Related: Ferrell and John C. Reilly start production on Holmes and Watson

Making his feature film directorial debut on the picture is Andrew Jay Cohen who served as co-writer on Zac Efron’s Bad Neighbours and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Cohen also co-wrote this project alongside his writing partner Brendan O’Brien so we are guessing the comedy antics of The House won’t veer too far away from what has already worked for them. »

Kong: Skull Island Clip Brings Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Reboot Closer In Line With Godzilla

15 February 2017 2:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“You are going to tell me everything I don’t know, or I’m gunna’ blow your head off.” That’s Samuel L. Jackson’s Lieutenant Colonel Packard, who can be seen holding Bill Randa (John Goodman) at gunpoint, demanding answers, in the tense new clip for Kong: Skull Island.

It’s a nail-biting standoff that has reared its head throughout the film’s appropriately monstrous marketing campaign, though up above we get the chance to see Goodman’s Bill Randa in a whole new light. As early rumors had suggested, Randa is an employee of Monarch, the mysterious organization first introduced in Gareth EdwardsGodzilla three years ago. That means Goodman’s character is well versed in both Skull Island’s extraordinary food chain and MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Objects), effectively strengthening the film’s ties to Legendary’s overarching MonsterVerse.
