Hey, Ho: The Ramones' 'Blitzkrieg Bop' Turns 40

4 February 2016 1:45 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hey! Ho! Let's go! It's one the 20th century's most enduring four-word phrases. Even if you're not a fan of the Ramones or punk or music in general, you've heard "Blitzkrieg Bop" somewhere, even if you didn't know that was the name of the song. And it was released 40 yeas ago on Feb. 4. All four of the original Ramones - Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy - grew up in Queens, New York, though, as Dee Dee recalled in the 2004 documentary, End of the Century, "It wasn't cool to be from Queens… You would lie about it if you went into Manhattan. »

Super Bowl Trailer For Dexter Fletcher’s Eddie The Eagle Soars Online

4 February 2016 1:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few cinematic tropes are tailored to as wide an audience as that of the underdog story; particularly in the sporting genre, with dramas in the vein of Hoosiers and Remember the Titans often remembered fondly for championing a luckless team or individual overcoming the odds just when everyone believed them to be down and out. Step forth, Eddie The Eagle.

Whether Dexter Fletcher’s real-life sports biopic is held in the same regard as those aforementioned genre classics in years to come is up for question, though for now, footballing stars such as Russell Wilson, Drew Brees and former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner trumpet the film’s arrival in today’s all-new teaser.

Featuring the admittedly slanted reactions of Wilson, Brees and Warner, there’s little in the way of new footage from Eddie the Eagle actually included. One thing’s for sure, however, 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate »

Super Bowl TV Spot for Fox's 'Eddie the Eagle' Starring Taron Egerton

4 February 2016 12:32 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's truly a remarkable story. If you love movies like Hoosiers, Rudy and Remember the Titans, you should see Eddie the Eagle." That's the perfect quote from Drew Brees to help sell this sports movie to the masses. Fox has unveiled their official Super Bowl TV spot for Eddie the Eagle, which is hitting theaters at the end of the month. Kingsman star Taron Egerton stars as Eddie Edwards, the titular "Eddie the Eagle" - England's first ever ski jumping athlete. The full cast includes Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Tim McInnerny and Jo Hartley. This Big Game-themed spot features actual football players such as Kurt Warner, Russell Wilson & Drew Brees. They're really pushing this film, and I'll still say it looks damn good. Here's the new Super Bowl TV spot for Dexter Fletcher's Eddie the Eagle, direct from Fox's YouTube: Eddie the Eagle is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Sunshine on Leith »

'Eddie the Eagle' Super Bowl Commercial Goes for the Gold

4 February 2016 11:23 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a report surfaced teasing some of the possible movie-related trailers that will air during Super Bowl 50 this Sunday on CBS. While none of these were confirmed by the respective studios, the report claimed that 20th Century Fox was planning "on-the-ground events" for movies such as Eddie the Eagle, X-Men: Apocalypse and Independence Day: Resurgence, which hinted that we may in fact see new footage from these movies during the big game. Just three days before the Super Bowl, 20th Century Fox has officially released its trailer for Eddie the Eagle, which has a football twist.

While the 30-second spot does include footage from the movie, the video reveals that several past and present NFL stars were treated to an advanced screening of Eddie the Eagle, with three iconic quarterbacks offering their thoughts on this true story adaptation.

‘Eddie The Eagle’ Super Bowl spot flies in

4 February 2016 10:52 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Eddie The Eagle Super Bowl spot: The biopic lands in U.S. cinemas in February, and the UK in April.

The Eddie The Eagle Super Bowl spot has landed online ahead of Sunday’s big game. The film actually debuts in U.S. cinemas later this month, though won’t see British cinemas until April. We were lucky enough to see the film earlier this week, and you can read our five-star Eddie The Eagle review at the end of the link.

Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself – even as an entire nation was counting him out.  With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making »

Check Out This Eddie The Eagle Super Bowl Commercial

4 February 2016 10:33 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since I saw Taron Egerton light up the screen in last year's Kingsman: The Secret Service, I thought he would make an amazing replacement for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. He had the charisma and the look, all that would need some work was the voice and attitude, which, let's face it, is kind of an actor's job. While the possibility of that random dream scenario isn't any closer to happening, I did find it interesting when I first stumbled onto this film, Eddie The Eagle

I think I should say now that this film couldn't be farther from a superhero flick, but I'd line up to see Hugh Jackman train Taron Egerton in anything. In this particular case, ski jumping. Eddie The Eagle tells the story of Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, a man who became the first British competitor to represent Britain in ski jumping at the 1988 Olympics.

X-men: Apocalypse: Olivia Munn Talks Psylocke

4 February 2016 9:30 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

How far we've come since the first X-men back in 2000. Black leather was in in those days, and every character looked like they hopped right out of The Matrix. It was the only real way you could sell a comic book movie back then. You couldn't straight-up translate the book to the screen--you had to ground it and sprinkle in elements for those few knowing fans who'd actually read the source material. And I bought into that idea, too. If you can believe it, I used to think the leather was badass, and was convinced there was no way you could pull off the comic book characters as they were drawn.

Ever since 2008's Iron Man hit the big screen, movies have inched closer and closer to their comic book counterparts. Nowadays, the differences tend to be minimal. Sure, they can't always transliterate the characters, but since the current generation »

10 Ways That Fox Can Make Sure The Wolverine 3 Is An Instant Classic

4 February 2016 8:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If the rumors are to be believed, it looks like Hugh Jackman won’t be playing X-Men favorite Wolverine for much longer. While that could mean saying goodbye to the character on film for good, most likely Jackman will be replaced for future entries in the franchise. Either way, the actor reportedly doesn’t have long left in the X-universe.

One concern is the prospect that Jackman could end his term without a truly great Wolverine movie to his name. The Wolverine is promising in places but ultimately disappointing, while the less said about X-Men Origins the better. As Jackman winds down his X-Men tenure, his final movie – The Wolverine 3 – approaches. After two duds, however, it’s more trepidation than excitement that we’re feeling.

According to Jackman, the next (final?) Wolverine film’s script is finished, and the movie at present has a tentative release date of March 3rd, »

'X-men: Apocalypse' Standing Display Reveals Hulking Apocalypse

4 February 2016 7:32 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

An Instagram user has shared a pic with the world that reveals the new standing display for X-men: Apocalypse that's going to adorn a theater near you. 

Check it out, then join me afterward for some analysis.

A couple of off-the-cuff observations:

Apocalypse looks huge, and much more like the way he's been depicted in books. For the sake of the display, and for promotion, they may have done this just for effect and he's not going to be that size for the entire film. But it does show that the filmmakers know what people think when they think of Apocalypse.They've definitely changed his hue. He's more blue now, as opposed to that purple we saw last year that had him looking like Ivan Ooze.They're capitalizing on Quicksilver's scene-stealing turn in X-men: Days Of Future Past by putting him here, so close to centerstage. His increased screen-time could »

Golden Years: David Bowie’s essential movie performances

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie.  Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius.  The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar.  Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.

While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles.  While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.

Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

‘Eddie The Eagle’ review: “One of the most uplifting films we’ve ever seen”

2 February 2016 1:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Eddie The Eagle review: Dexter Fletcher, Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton take on a British sporting icon. Eddie The Eagle review

Eddie The Eagle review by Paul Heath, February 2016.

Dexter Fletcher takes to the slopes for his biggest directorial effort to date with Eddie The Eagle, an uplifting high-flyer that will have you grinning from ear to ear all of the way through.

Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards’ name is firmly steeped in Olympic history for his efforts at the Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada in 1988. If you’re unfamiliar with the story, it all starts in the quiet Gloucestershire town of Cheltenham in the late 1970s, where a young boy dreams of glory at the Olympics. After quickly realising that he hasn’t got the ability to compete at the highest level in the big summer games, young Eddie switches sports for the winter type, and in particular, downhill skiing. »

Avatar 2 and Wolverine 3 set to start shooting this spring

A new report suggests production on the final Wolverine film and the first Avatar sequel is edging closer...

Both Avatar 2 and The Wolverine 3 are sequels that seem to be without shooting start dates. James Cameron has been working on his three planned Avatar sequels for many years now, without any obvious sign that they're going in front of the cameras. Meanwhile, Hugh Jackman has been insistent that his Wolverine swansong - to be directed by James Mangold - wouldn't enter production until the script was where it needed to be.

In fact, Jackman revealed just last week that he's back doing the required physical work to become Wolverine for the final time, and he also said that the screenplay was very close to where they needed it to be. Now we learn that The Wolverine 3 is likely to start shooting at the end of April, with »

Production start dates for Ghost in the Shell, Avatar 2, Alien: Covenant, Wolverine 3 and Transformers 5

1 February 2016 11:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to My Entertainment World, we’ve got details on production start dates for some of 2017’s big hitters.

The Scarlett Johansson-headlined Ghost in the Shell, which is set to be directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) will begin filming this month in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau and Shanghai.

Also set to commence production this month is the Fifty Shades of Grey follow-up Fifty Shades Darker, which sees Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson returning as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele alongside new addition Kim Basinger.

The release date of Avatar 2 may have been pushed back due to Star Wars: Episode VIII, but James Cameron will reportedly start shooting the follow-up to the highest-grossing film of all time in New Zealand in April.

Ridley Scott will begin shooting his Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel Alien: Covenant in Sydney, Australia in April, with Michael Fassbender reprising his »

Avatar 2 And Wolverine 3 Reportedly Eyeing April 2016 Start Dates; Fifty Shades Darker And More Also Slated

1 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arguably two of the biggest sequels teetering on the edge of entering production, in a comprehensive report detailing upcoming start dates, My Entertainment World has seemingly revealed that Wolverine 3 and James Cameron’s long-delayed Avatar 2 will leap in front of the cameras come April.

Recently pushed out of its tentative December 2017 release window – likely to make room for Disney’s Star Wars: Episode VIII – Cameron’s sci-fi follow-up has struggled to nail down a concrete production timeline up until now. Now, however, My Entertainment World claims that the director’s trip to Pandora will begin filming in New Zealand in only a few months’ time. No word yet on whether Cameron will remain committed to filming three sequels back-to-back, though we’ll keep you updated as Avatar 2 inches closer to firing up production.

Wolverine 3 to Begin Filming in April, Can Jackman Ever Be Replaced?

1 February 2016 9:36 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It was just last week that the Wolverine himself Hugh Jackman told Collider that they were finishing up the script for the third Wolverine flick. Once the script was "perfect" and fit to usher Jackman off from the role that he's popularized for the past fifteen-plus years, then we'd get a specific production date.

Well it seems like that time is now, as the industry tracking site My Entertainment World is reporting that Wolverine 3 is beginning its production on April 25, 2016 in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. The film itself is due for a March 2017 release date, so while it's cutting it a bit close with its shooting date, it's still well within the realm of reason that it'll hit that theater date.

Of course, we'd be dumb not to notice that the film shooting New Orleans is a bit suspicious. Could everyone's favorite card-throwing Cajun be making an appearance in the new Wolverine movie? »
