Where are the cast of Bring It On now? Here's what happened to Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and the squad

24 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

15 years ago today, the Toros stepped out onto the football field and put some serious cheer back into the atmosphere. To steal a phrase from the film: Bring It On's the poo - so take a big whiff.

But what have Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku and the rest of the squad been cheering about since then? To mark the movie's birthday, we put down the pompoms and find out what they've been up to since.

Kirsten Dunst

A Hollywood star from the age of 12 thanks to her breakthrough role in Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's star was burning brightly when she led the Toros as Torrance Shipman. Two years later, she went on to land her biggest role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's three Spider-man films.

In recent years, she's reinvented herself as a critical darling, winning Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for Melancholia, »

The Final Girls Trailer Plays Like Scream Via Pleasantville!

24 August 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Groundswell Productions

Highlighting the eccentricities and tropes of horror isn’t a new cinematic pastime. Everyone from The Wayans to Joss Whedon have had a crack at commenting on the rules and regulations that go into surviving one of these pictures, sometimes to great success (Scream’s probably still the sub-genre Mvp) and sometimes not (Well, what do you expect after 5 Scary Movies?).

A trailer’s dropped for the latest film cut in the tradition, entitled The Final Girls.

Check it out below.

The trailer plays like Scream via Pleasantville, with a bunch of smart-mouthed, modern teens sucked into the world of a cheesy old-school slasher. There they have to survive using established rules of the genre, very much like Scream. It looks pretty manic, and some of the jokes find their mark, but The Final Girls will probably need something else up its sleeve, as the 80s horror thing »

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: 8 Most Outrageous Fan Theories You Won’t Believe

24 August 2015 4:26 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Mutant Enemy

Apparently it has been 12 years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired its last episode, which seems a remarkably long time. That’s because it remains so vividly not only in my memory, but in pop-culture and TV discussions.

Joss Whedon may now be directing billion dollar blockbusters, but this show was his first major breakthrough as the creator of his own wold, and stands among the best work he has ever done. It gave us a really strong female lead, brought vampires back to the mainstream, and blended some great action with heart and whip-smart Whedon dialogue that many have tried to replicate since.

Given that it existed from 1997-2003, it means that Buffy was around before the internet really grew to what it is today, and before shows like Lost took fan-investment and online theorising to a whole other level. Despite that, it has a loyal fanbase »

Does Marvel Studios have a director problem? Why A-list filmmakers are fleeing the MCU

23 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Remember that time last year when the humble Cornetto ice cream cone briefly became a revolutionary symbol? (Revolutionary, that is, within the narrow spectrum of blockbuster cinema.)

On May 24, 2014, the day after Marvel Studios announced that writer-director Edgar Wright had stepped down from helming Ant-Man after years in development, Wright tweeted a rapidly-deleted image of Buster Keaton holding a Cornetto, bearing a single-word caption: "Selfie".

The message was clear - Keaton famously regretted his decision to give up independent filmmaking and work for MGM in 1928, calling it "the worst mistake of [his] career" because of his loss of creative control. The Cornetto, being a reference to Wright's blood-and-ice cream trilogy, clarified beyond the shadow of a doubt Wright's disillusionment with his studio masters.

More than a year on, Wright is still yet to speak publicly about what led him to jump ship from a project he had spent eight years developing, »

When Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives on Blu-ray and DVD, it will come packaged with a gag reel. But guess what? You don't have to wait until October 7th to see it. The full gag reel has found it's way onto the Internet. And it's pretty cute. We get to see Jeremy Renner trying to smother newcomer Aaron Taylor-Johnson while they shoot a very somber moment on set. Cobie Smulders swears a lot. And the rest of the cast make funny faces and goof off during the shoot. There is actually some pretty funny moments here.

The MPAA's Lawsuit Against MovieTube Is Getting Even Stranger

21 August 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The biggest battle waged this summer was not the one between Ultron (James Spader) and the Avengers, nor was it the war between Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and the Syndicate. Instead, there has been a legal fight going on behind the scenes between the MPAA, the major Hollywood studios and a syndicate of online pirates operating under the umbrellas of the MovieTube banner… and it continues to take several unexpected turns. In July, according to THR, the Motion Picture Association of America and its members – which includes Paramount, Warner Bros., Fox, Columbia Pictures, Universal and Disney – filed a legal complaint against the mysterious and anonymous operators of the MovieTube websites, trying to prevent them from providing stream-worthy, pirated copies of Hollywood movies like Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. On a Facebook page associated with the MovieTube sites, the defendants in the suit claimed »

Mockingbird-Centered 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D' Spin-Off Show Moving Forward As 'Marvel's Most Wanted'

21 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Not content with dominating the box office in theaters, Marvel’s ambitions are increasingly driven by the small screen. The “Avengers” spin-off “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D” on ABC was the first, and will soon enter its third season despite tepid response from fans and disappointing ratings, while the Hayley Atwell-top-lining period piece “Agent Carter” was more fun, though less watched. The network is also developing a show with “12 Years A Slave” writer John Ridley, rumored to be an adaptation of “Cloak and Dagger” or “Ms. Marvel,” while Netflix has already debuted the well-received “Daredevil,” with “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” and “The Defenders” also coming up, not to mention the countless animated series out there too.

Why Us comedy Reaper deserves more love

21 August 2015 2:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

American comedy Reaper was the slacker Supernatural. With great writing, great jokes and Ray Wise, what more could you want?

At the time of writing, the American television networks’ ‘fall’ season of 2015 is a month or so around the corner. It’s still a month until Doctor Who comes back, and worryingly close to that time of the year when The X-Factor is gobbling up Saturday nights around the UK. Essentially, we reckon you could be looking for a new show to binge-watch right about now.

To help you out, the Article Ideas Team here at Geek Towers fired up their Underappreciated TV Shows That Need More Love Machine (patent pending) and cooked you up a recommendation - Reaper.

‘What the frick is Reaper?’, you may or may not be thinking. To the former camp – those with a joyous first watch ahead of them – Reaper was a supernatural comedy hosted »

Villordsutch reviews Judge Dredd Megazine #363…

Welcome to you squaxx dek thargo!  We are at issue #363 of Judge Dredd Megazine so it’s a happy time of Lawgivers, Demon-Hunting Nuns, Psi-Division on the Seafront and a backside kicking Colonial Marshall. Sounds like an average Wednesday really.   Enough chat, on with the words!

Judge Dredd – El Maldito (Part 3)

After the murder of Cranston in the last issue and the attempted murder of Judge Dredd with the release of the forced stampede of the huge Beefallo, everything is rapidly moving up a gear as the security forces are taking to massacring people in the streets in search of El Maldito.  Then when another attempt is made on Dredd’s life by a bomb on the H-Wagon and it soon becomes apparent that El Maldito may not be the evil behind the deeds in the town as the security forces are instructed to kill Dredd. »

4 Reasons Why Fantastic Four Should Have Worked (And 4 Reasons It Didn’t)

16 August 2015 8:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Oh dear. Superhero movies have enjoyed unprecedented success in the past decade, forever changing the way Hollywood approaches blockbuster filmmaking, but the cracks are finally beginning to show. The fact that Avengers: Age of Ultron is now the sixth highest grossing movie of all-time should fly in the face of that, except that analysts and critics alike were shocked when Joss Whedon’s sequel failed to match the success of its predecessor. Marvel also had another hit on their hands this year with Ant-Man, an atypical hero who few had heard of outside of comic book fandom, but the film still performed relatively poorly in comparison with the rest of the studio’s output.

And then there’s Fantastic Four.

Anyone who holds even a passing interest in cinema is likely to have heard of how spectacularly the latest Fantastic Four movie failed at the box office this weekend. Scraping just $26 million domestically, »

Best Buy Will Have Exclusive Avengers: Age Of Ultron Steelbooks For Both 'Ultron' & 'Vision'

16 August 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Late last month, Marvel officially announced the Blu-ray/DVD release date for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron by debuting the cover art for the multiple variations, unveiling the special features list, and releasing a whole set of clips from their biggest film to date. During the announcement, a little detail that may have been overlooked was in regards to the Best Buy-exclusive steelbook, an exclusive Marvel has been releasing since 2012's The Avengers. It seems as though, when fans head to their local Best Buy to pick up Avengers: Age Of Ultron on Blu-ray this October 2, they'll have a decision to make as there won't be just one steelbook available, there will be two! The popular retailer will be carrying two Age Of Ultron steelbooks and while they will both have the same front cover, the back covers will feature either James Spader's Ultron or Paul Bettany's Vision! »

Ranking 2015's summer blockbusters from worst to best: Is Mad Max better than Jurassic World?

16 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Summer starts early when it comes to blockbuster movies - this year we saw Fast & Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron hit cinemas in April, with big movie following big movie as the weeks rolled on.

But which popcorn movie had you jumping for joy and which had you running for the exits? Digital Spy has ranked all of 2015's major tentpole releases below - but which movie's top of your list?

15. Terminator Genisys

He came back! But deep down Arnie probably should have stayed away from the role that turned him into a movie star some 30 years ago. Terminator Genisys was a jumbled, tired retread of the franchise's former glories that made one thing abundantly clear: if you're going to make a Terminator movie, it better be directed by James Cameron.

14. Fantastic Four

Fox's bid to resurrect Marvel's first family felt like a disaster from day one. A »

In this edition of The Week in Spandex, we look at Fantastic Four, X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man, Blade, Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, Daredevil, The Punisher, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, Constantine, Arrow, The Flash, Vixen, Supergirl, Gotham, Powerless, Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem, Lego DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom!, The Lego Batman Movie, Heroes Reborn, Guardians and more…

After a shambolic opening weekend which saw its director taking to social media to voice his displeasure, the film earning the lowest ever CinemaScore for a studio superhero movie, and bombing at the box office with a worldwide haul of just $60.3 million, the Fantastic Fallout from Fantastic Four continued this week as details emerged suggesting that Josh Trank was almost fired before – and during – production on the superhero reboot, »

Avengers Age Of Ultron: a film people wanted but didn't love?

14 August 2015 5:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joss Whedon's Avengers sequel was a huge box office hit. But why - when it tries so hard to please fans - don't more love it?

The release of Fantastic Four finally puts to bed this year’s run of superhero blockbusters, and it’s fair to say that as superhero movies go, it’s been an unpredictable year. Ant-Man opened low for a Marvel film, but made back its money and was critically well-received even as people mourned the Edgar Wright film we lost as a result. A similarly-troubled Fantastic Four movie crash-landed in a manner befitting the four’s initial spaceflight, fulfilling the grim predictions based on early leaked material.

And then there’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Perhaps the biggest puzzle of the three, not least because - unlike the others - it seemed to do everything right on paper.

Hero Blend #70: The State Of The Comic Book Movie 2015

With the release of Josh Trank.s Fantastic Four in theaters, the comic book movie season for 2015 has officially come to a close. It.s been a very interesting year for the genre, full of both ups and downs, but also filled some fascinating clues towards the future and the direction of certain franchises. What better time than now to look back on what we.ve seen? Marvel Studios kicked things off in May of this year, launching the insanely hyped The Avengers: Age of Ultron - which was a massive success despite not quite living up to the expectations established from Joss Whedon.s first time behind the Avengers wheel. The same studio then brought us Ant-Man in July . a rather simple yet fun little heist movie . but unfortunately things ended on a sour note with Fantastic Four performing up to nobody.s hopes. Helping us to rebound from »
