First Official Look At Peter Serafinowicz As The Tick In Amazon's Reboot Of The Superhero Comedy

21 July 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Amazon has officially announced that the premiere date for their take on The Tick will be August 19, and they've also released a few images from the show, giving us a first look at Peter Serafinowicz as the do-gooder of the title. Fans were not best pleased when they found out Patrick Warburton wouldn't be returning after doing such a great job as Fox's short-lived take on the beloved character, but Serafinowicz has become quite the geek-icon in his own right so there shouldn't be too many complaints. We also have an updated synopsis which you can check out below.

Preacher episode 8 review: El Valero

20 July 2016 12:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ron Hogan Jul 20, 2016

Quincannon is the star of this week's well-written, funny, dark, absurd Preacher episode...

This review contains spoilers.

1.8 El Valero

I cannot say enough good things about Jackie Earle Haley's performance. This episode is basically the Odin Quincannon show, and it's incredible to behold as he takes that character and somehow makes him the world's most menacing middle manager. It's really funny the way he organises his assaults on Jesse Custer's church; the moment when he gives his men a speech telling them to drink water before their night assault on a sniper in a high position was just really funny, and it only gets funnier when he gives his men a later speech about how some of them were going to be serving as human shields, not in so many words, and faceless assault waves, due to it being dark, and not to get their penises shot off. »

Preacher, Episode 8: El Valero Review

It took an episode or two of filler but finally the chickens are coming home to roost for Dominic Cooper’s Jesse. First in the form of Quincannon (Jackie Earle Haley); who sends in a gang of heavies to swiftly get their asses kicked and their weapons stolen by Jesse.  Improbable? Yes, but pretty funny to […]

London Has Fallen Blu-ray Review

16 July 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There could be a moment where films like London Has Fallen start to accidentially reflect reality a little too much but in the escapism of cinema, and the vast push towards those classic almost-impossible action movie boundaries, there’s more than enough here to take you away with an entertaining and cheesy, yet action packed, sequel of sorts to Olympus Has Fallen.

Not messing around with the winning formula in any way, Gerald Butler‘s Mike Banning returns to try and save President Ben Asher, played again by Aaron Eckhart, after a routine State visit to London ends up becoming a setup to kill all the world leaders and consequentially a deadly bloodbath. There’s not an excessive amount you can say about the plot because as a whole it involves Banning and Asher trying not to be killed by a seriously high volume of baddies that are both seemingly »

‘Birth of a Nation’ Poster Shows Nate Parker in American Flag Noose

15 July 2016 6:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox Searchlight has debuted a powerful poster for Nate Parker’s “Birth of a Nation” with the actor’s Nat Turner character wearing an American flag noose.

The image was first posted by Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service.

Parker produced and directed “Birth of a Nation” from his own script, which centers on the 1831 slave rebellion led by Turner. The previous poster also used an American flag with images of members of the revolt.

“Birth of a Nation” debuted at Sundance in January and sold for $17.5 million to Searchlight. It’s expected to be an awards-season contender with an Oct. 7 opening.

Justin Chang gave the film a rave in his review for Variety:  “‘The Birth of a Nation’ exists to provoke a serious debate about the necessity and limitations of empathy, the morality of retaliatory violence, and the ongoing black struggle for justice and equality in this country. »

Earlier this week, new set photos surfaced as the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower continues production in New York City.

First official images of Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in The Dark Tower

14 July 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a few spy photos from the set of The Dark Tower over the past couple of weeks [see here, here and here], but now thanks to Entertainment Weekly we’ve got our first official look at Idris Elba’s Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black from the hotly-anticipated adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower. Take a look…

“When we meet Roland he’s a bit lost,” states Elba with regards to his role as The Gunslinger. “He’s been walking around for a long time, so he definitely feels like a man who’s… coiled. [He] has forgotten the face of his father. That’s a sense of, ‘You’ve forgotten your purpose.’ Until he meets [Jake Chambers], he doesn’t have anything to believe in, really. He’s really pent up and releases his soul through [defending] the boy.”

“Well, he is a man, actually,” replies McConaughey when asked about his villainous character, »

New Image from The Dark Tower Bows to Matthew McConaughey’s The Man in Black

14 July 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following the recent official reveal of Idris Elba as The Gunslinger, EW has now unveiled a new photo of the person he pursues: Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black, aka Walter.

EW‘s photo shows The Man in Black strolling towards New York City’s Dixie Pig, a place where outsiders of the world—including sorcerers—congregate. Walter, who is also known as Randall Flagg from The Stand, is respected and feared by the crowd, who bow their heads as he passes by.

McConaughey tells EW that Walter is in search of Jake, a boy with the ability to “Shine.” The Man in Black hopes to exploit this power in order to destroy the Tower and bring about a collision of worlds and the rise of his master, the Crimson King. But Walter is squarely in the vengeful sights of The Gunslinger, who has a hateful history with the powerful being. »
