Cable Will Be Cast In Deadpool 2 “Very Soon,” Sequel To Feature More Obscure Characters

19 March 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Fox continuing to lay the building blocks for their X-Men cinematic universe, one of the most important pieces of the puzzle appears to be Deadpool 2. After the wildly successful first film, expectations for the sequel to deliver are huge, but more importantly, perhaps, is its role in the lead up to X-Force. Given that both the Merc with a Mouth and Cable are set to feature heavily in the aforementioned flick, David Leitch’s upcoming sequel will no doubt be planting many seeds for it, and as such, seeing who Fox chooses to play the time travelling mutant promises to be quite exciting.

It’s a casting hunt that’s sparked more rumors than we can count, with far too many actors finding themselves linked to the part over the past few months. Stephen Lang, Russell Crowe, Pierce Brosnan, David Harbour – the list goes on. Hell, the promo »

Lightning Strikes And Mater Returns In First Cars 3 TV Spot

13 March 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lightning strikes (again) and Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) returns in the blistering first TV spot for Cars 3, Brian Fee’s upcoming animated threequel penciled in for release on June 16th.

Coming to us via this weekend’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards, which also brought forth a new and indeed extended peek at Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight, the brief promo above casts light on, well, the more light-hearted side of Fee’s rip-roaring sequel. The return of Mater will no doubt please long-time fans of the Cars series, who can be seen dolling out some questionable advice to Owen Wilson’s bruised red stock car.

Stuck in a rut following a devastating crash, Lightning McQueen finds himself unknowingly pushed to the sidelines as a new generation of ice-cool racers takes control of the circuit. Wanting nothing more than to challenge for the Piston Cup once more, Wilson »

Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, Lea DeLaria And Lewis Hamilton Join Disney·Pixar’S Cars 3

12 March 2017 7:27 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Miss Fritter (voice of Lea DeLaria) loves the smash-and-crash life of demolition derby. A local legend at the Thunder Hollow Speedway, Fritter’s formidable school-bus size is intimidating, but it’s her smoke stacks of doom, razor-sharp stop sign and crazy collection of her victims’ license plates that usually steers her opponents in the other direction. ©2017 Disney•Pixar.

Disney•Pixar’s Cars 3 reveals key voice cast and characters, featuring award-winning stars. According to director Brian Fee, the roster includes both new and returning characters. “We’re introducing some fun and really appealing characters in ‘Cars 3,’” said Fee, “so we really wanted to find the right voices to help us breathe life into them. We hit a homerun with this group; I couldn’t be happier.”

Following are the newcomers and Cars franchise veterans who join the previously announced voice talent and characters: Owen Wilson as world champion racer Lightning McQueen, »

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is 20-years-old today!

In honor of this iconic WB/Upn series, we've rounded up the 10 best villains for you!

 

1. Spike Before becoming a hero, Spike was a villain and it was pretty great. Watching his continued efforts to try and kill Buffy and her friends made for some nail-biting scenes, but his relationship with Buffy solidified him as one of TV's best vampires. 2. The Gentleman The Gentleman appeared on a Season 4 episode and forced everyone into silence. It made for an exciting episode that forced the Scooby gang to have their wits about them to take the down the new enemy. 3. Mayor Wilkins Mayor Wilkins was a cunning individual who was on a quest for immortality. Part of what made him so great was his witty one-liners. 4.

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' at 20: How a Monster-Killing Teen Changed TV Forever

10 March 2017 6:26 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Dear female high school student: You have been chosen to fight the dark, never-ending forces of evil. You're likely to die young and alone, because you're supposed to keep your calling a secret. Sounds awesome, right? Oh, wait, you don't have a choice. Happy hunting!

Admittedly, it's a lousy sales pitch to give a perky blonde who just wants to make it through her midterms in one piece. But in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon's landmark television series, the girl in question doesn't exactly get »

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Turns 20: Look Back at the Classic Series’ Best Episodes!

10 March 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Grrr arggg! Into every generation an excellent TV show is born: One show in all the world. The Chosen One.

It’s been 20 years since Buffy Summers, Mr. Pointy, The Bronze, and Giles’ always-smudged spectacles graced our small screens, and the world has never been the same (mostly because she saved it… a lot).

There were plenty of quips (“Out. For. A. Walk. B**ch.”), tears (Spike’s undying devotion, sob), and frights (bunnies, plus demons and stuff), but Buffy the Vampire Slayer was so much more than that.

The Joss Whedon masterpiece created several feminist icons, spoke to addiction struggles, portrayed the first lesbian sex scene on broadcast television, showed that vampires were sexy long before Twilight and made it ok to wear pink leather pants in public… well, sort of.

Whether you were Team Angel, Team Spike or kind of just wanted Giles and Joyce to get together, the show had »

Cars 3 Adds 3 New Cast Members and Several Familiar Faces

A lot of familiar faces will be rooting Lightning McQueen on this summer.  Disney-Pixar announced, today, the arrival new castmembers joining Cars 3, old and new.  Find out who they are!

The last time Disney-Pixar checked in, it was to introduce Armie Hammer and Cristela Alonzo to the cast of Cars 3.  Today, they announced three more stars lending their voices to the animated feature.

Kerry Washington (ABC’s “Scandal,” HBO’s “Confirmation”) lends her voice to Natalie Certain, a highly respected statistical analyst who knows her numbers. Book-smart and mathematically gifted, Certain may earn top marks in her ability to evaluate a racer’s stats, but she could be underestimating the importance of determination.

Nathan Fillion (ABC’s “Castle,” ABC’s “Modern Family”) voices Sterling, a brilliant businesscar who runs Rust-eze Racing Center—one of the most successful elite training facilities in the country. The always dapper Sterling comes »

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and the Legacy of Joss Whedon 20 Years Later

9 March 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“Well, there's nobody who didn't have a horrible high school experience except for, like, one guy I met once,” Joss Whedon said while sitting down with Et on the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 1997.

At the time, the show was in production on its second season, with everyone -- including stars Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy), David Boreanaz (Angel) and Alyson Hannigan (Willow) -- returning to work on a bona fide hit for The WB. Whedon summed up his own high school experience as “constant humiliation and rejection,” an apt time period for a TV horror series. (Note: This was probably before they ever met, but I still like to believe the “one guy” he was referring to is Nathan Fillion.)

“I thought it would make a good show,” Whedon said. “I thought, I'll make a show about high school that's a horror movie just as my high school was, and that's »

This summer brings the third installment of the Cars franchise.

Nathan Fillion And Kerry Washington Zoom Into Cars 3

8 March 2017 9:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite their status as one of the best when it comes to animation, Pixar has certainly had more than a few stumbles along the way. It’s no secret that perhaps one of their weakest efforts was Cars, which was followed up by the even worse Cars 2. As such, it’s definitely a bit surprising that the studio is moving ahead with a third instalment in the series, but given that this is Hollywood – where money talks – I suppose it makes a bit of sense.

After all, the first two outings earned a healthy profit at the box office and this June, Cars 3 will zoom into theaters hoping to do the same. The only difference is that the threequel actually looks pretty good, with recent trailers marking a significant improvement from where we last left the property. Of course, we’re not one to judge a film based solely on the previews, »
