5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Infinity War started shooting a few weeks ago under Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo, but we’re yet to get an official cast list from Marvel. When we do, expect it to be Huge.

Michael Rooker Potentially Confirms Yondu in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

7 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Another Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 character is a virtual lock to appear in Avengers: Infinity War next year.

Michael Rooker, otherwise known as Yondu in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, took to Instagram earlier today and shared what at first appears to be an innocent picture with some lucky Starbucks baristas.

Upon closer inspection there are two pieces of evidence that connect him to Avengers: Infinity War. First, his ski cap has the new Avengers: Infinity War logo printed on it.

Also notice the Starbucks location: Peachtree City, Georgia. This town is adjacent to Fayetteville, Georgia where Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting at Pinewood Studios.

Maybe Rooker was merely visiting the set and got the cap as a souvenir. That's doubtful considering Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista are confirmed to appear as Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax, respectively in Avengers: Infinity War. Vin Diesel and »

Yondu to Return In Avengers: Infinity War?

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

By now, if you're a Marvel fan, you well know that the Guardians of the Galaxy are showing up in Avengers: Infinity War. And you probably also know that Michael Rooker's Yondu becomes an official member of the Guardians in Vol.2 , hitting theaters this summer. So it should stand to reason that Rooker will be part of the massive ensemble cast of Infinity War. Right? Well, we don't have confirmation from Marvel or Disney, but the man himself has offered one big hint that he will return in the next Avengers movie.

Michael Rooker recently shared two photos on Instagram that all but scream that he's returning in Avengers 3. As we know, the movie is currently shooting in Atlanta. Now, we know that Rooker is also in Georgia. And that he has an official Infinity War beanie. We also have proof that he was back in the blue make-up »

Will Michael Rooker’s Yondu Be In Avengers: Infinity War?

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

We always knew Avengers: Infinity War was going to be a big film, but at this point, it’s starting to look like it may be too big for its own good. As excited as we are to see all these characters come together and interact with one another, ultimately putting their differences aside to team up and defeat big bad Thanos, it begs the question: will it be too much?

There’s only so much room in the movie and with the large amount of characters Marvel is planning to squeeze in here, you’ve got to wonder if Infinity War will stretch itself too thin. So far, it sounds like every single person still breathing in the McU will have a role in Joe and Anthony Russo’s film, and today, we’re hearing of one more actor that’s now joined the cast. Or at least, that’s what it looks like. »

The experiment is masterminded by a mysterious voice which is controlling the loud speaker and instructing the employees to slaughter each other by any means necessary.

Belko Experiment Claymation Short Is Bloody, Violent and Insane

24 February 2017 11:28 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With The Belko Experiment hitting theaters in just a few weeks, Blumhouse Tilt has been releasing new footage to get fans ready for this terrifying thriller. Today we have a new video that doesn't exactly show any footage from the movie, but instead offers a glimpse at what the movie might look like in claymation. This new short film from director Lee Hardcastle perfectly captures the tone of The Belko Experiment, while going hilariously over the top with gore in only the way that claymation can offer.

Blumhouse Tilt posted this hilarious video on YouTube and their social media pages today, which comes from the twisted mind of filmmaker Lee Hardcastle. Back in 2012, the filmmaker was chosen as the winner of a contest for the horror anthology film The ABCs of Death, which featured shorts from 25 established filmmakers, and one short film from an aspiring director. Lee Hardcastle beat out »

24 February 2017 10:48 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Even in cute claymation, the kill-or-be-killed setting of The Belko Experiment is still unnervingly violent and drenched with blood.

Written by the acclaimed writer/director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither) and directed by Greg McLean (creator of the Wolf Creek franchise), The Belko Experiment is a terrifying, provocative and at times hilarious thrill-ride that literally provokes the question: what does it take to survive at work?

New trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 classified

24 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the rather excellent extended Super Bowl spot [watch it here], it seems that Marvel will be giving us another look at this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the very near future.

According to Trailer Track, the Alberta Film Ratings board has classified a new trailer for the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel, which runs at 2 minutes and 20 seconds.

It’s unclear when the new trailer will arrive, but it would seem likely that it will either be attached to next week’s Wolverine solo movie Logan, or Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which opens on March 17th. Either way, expect it online first.

Belko Experiment Sneak Peek Delivers a Hard Hitting Message

20 February 2017 11:25 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Blumhouse Tilt has released a new clip from their highly-anticipated thriller The Belko Experiment, which shows Belko Industries boss Barry Norris (Tony Goldwyn) making a big decision and laying down the law for his Belko employees. Instead of waiting for their mysterious captors to kill off 60 employees, Barry has apparently decided to take the other choice, which involves the employees themselves killing off 30 people. Barry reveals at the end of the clip that they need "order," but it's clear that his co-workers aren't too thrilled with this plan.

Blumhouse Tilt released this clip on YouTube earlier today, which also reveals that they only have 20 minutes to kill off 30 people, or else 60 people will be killed by those who are watching them. It was teased in previous trailers that each employee has an implant, and with just the flick of a switch, a life can be taken in an instant. It »
