5 Reasons Haters Were Wrong About the New Ghostbusters

18 July 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The reboot, remake whatever people are calling the new Ghostbusters film is a modern miracle. Not only because the new film is very good. It is miraculous that this movie got made at all. As some of you might remember, this thing was written off more times than a good tax shelter! However, it finally took visionary director Paul Feig and a cast of take no prisoner, comedic genius females (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones... with a solid assist from Chris Hemsworth), to bring this thing to fruition. Ultimately, what we have got is a fresh take on an original concept, that, if it were the only film in the series, would probably be even more special.

The question I am sure many of you have is ages old: Is the new version better than the old one? Truthfully, no. The original Ghostbusters from 1984 still features »

Emmys: Nearly 25% of Acting Nominees Are Non-White, but Drama Still Lags Behind

14 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For the second year in a row, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences can laugh at movies’ #OscarsSoWhite problem. Actors of color nabbed 18 of the major 73 acting nominations in the categories of lead and supporting performers in drama, comedy, and limited series. That’s just shy of 25%, and even an improvement over last year’s historic Emmys, where 16 actors of color were among the 75 nominees.

Every category for a lead actor featured a nominee of color: First-time nominee Rami Malek, who is Egyptian-American, broke into the club for lead actor in a drama, which last year was entirely white. Similarly, “black-ish”’s Tracee Ellis Ross broke the color barrier in lead actress for a comedy, which was also an all-white slate last year.

This year’s nominees were also more diverse behind the camera. Aziz Ansari, nominated for lead actor in a comedy for “Master Of None,” was also nominated for writing and directing; so was »

Concept art from Jeff Wadlow’s rejected Deadpool pitch

14 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2013 before the overwhelmingly positive reception to Tim Miller’s test footage saw 20th Century Fox finally giving Deadpool the green light, the studio was inviting pitches from other filmmakers in an effort to drag the Merc with a Mouth out of development hell.

One such pitch came from Jeff Wadlow, director of Kick-Ass 2 – and a writer on Fox’s X-Force – who linked up with artist Kelton Cram to produce some concept art for his pitch. And thanks to Comic Book, we’ve got a look at some of the said artwork, including two images of Deadpool, and one of Random, a member of the Marauders, who Cram modeled on Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, »

Gotham Season 3 Bts Images May Tease Killer Croc

12 July 2016 4:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

We’re still a few months away from the season 3 premiere of Fox’s divisive Batman prequel series, but Gotham executive producer Danny Cannon has shared some very interesting production stills to his Twitter account, teasing the unexpected return of some characters, and the debut of others.

In addition to series regulars Camren Bicondova, Donal Logue, Morena Baccarin and Jada Pinkett Smith, there’s a shot of Michael Chiklis as Captain Nathaniel Barnes, which seemingly confirms that the tough-as-nails copper will make a full recovery from his grave injuries in the season 2 finale. But, it’s the slightly more monstrous faces in the gallery we’re most concerned with.

No doubt results of Doctor Hugo Strange’s Indian Hill experiments, these two creatures will most likely be loose on the streets when we return to Gotham. The bat-nosed fella is anyone’s guess, but the more »

Emily S. Whitten: Awesome Con Round-Up & A Look Ahead

10 July 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Con season has well and truly slid into gear now; with Awesome Con kicking things off a few weeks ago and Sdcc and NerdHQ fast approaching. Of course, con season is really year-round these days; but for me, it starts with Awesome Con and ends with New York Comic Con.

This year’s Awesome Con was, as usual, a great start to the season for me. What I like about the con is that despite only being four years old, it’s managed to integrate various fun aspects of different flavors of cons into a fairly seamless whole – meaning that if you aren’t there for one particular facet of the offerings, there are plenty of others to experience. Here were some of the highlights for me:

The media guests:

Awesome Con has consistently done well in getting big names to a young con. This year’s lineup included everyone »

The Best of the First Half of 2016

1 July 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Time just freaking flies, doesn’t it? We’re now in July and officially in the second half of the year, which means one thing…it’s time for my mid year look at the best of the first half! As of today, July 1st, I’ve seen only a movie or two below the 150 mark, so I’ve hit on almost all of the worthwhile bits of cinema that have come out between now and January 1st. Obviously, there’s probably still something that I missed that you’d have wished were included here, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. I tried to be as exhaustive as possible, but things fall through the cracks. Still, I suspect there’s more than enough here for you all. Below you’ll see my rankings for everything that I’ve seen since the year began. Take special note, »

Suggested tagline for Gotham Season 3: ‘Rise of the Epic Love Triangle.’

The Fox drama has cast James Carpinello (The Good Wife, Person of Interest) to play the pivotal role of mob progeny Mario Falcone — and his first order of business appears to be whacking Jim (Ben McKenzie) and Lee’s (Morena Baccarin) romance.

Deadpool writers reveal that Fox asked for a PG-13 version

10 June 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back when the film was first announced, there were several rumours running around that 20th Century Fox wanted a PG-13 version of Deadpool, despite what Ryan Reynolds and the director kept telling fans. Well, according to the writers, a PG-13 version of Deadpool was written and nearly made.

“We got reasonably close to that”, Rhett Reese told Den of Geek. “In that, Fox asked us at one point ‘hey, write the PG-13 version and we can make a decision based off that’.”

“We did it”, he adds. “We sold our soul for a few minutes [laughs]. But interestingly the PG-13 version is not that different from the R version. The language is reduced, the sexual content is reduced, but most of the action and the structure of the movie and the scenes were all the same. It was up to Fox to look at it and decided ‘should we make this? »

Deadpool is big in Japan, dethrones Zootopia at the box office

9 June 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have hit cinemas months ago (and is already available on Blu-ray and DVD in several markets), but the Merc with a Mouth has just made his way over to Japan, with 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool dethroning Zootopia at the Japanese box office with a five-day opening haul of $6.5 million.

Deadpool is currently sitting on $771.2 million globally, and Fox must be hoping that its run in Japan can push the X-Men spinoff to the $800 million mark. For comparison, Zootopia opened with $3.99 million (albeit from a two-day weekend) and has so far grossed $56.67 million, so it’s certainly possible that Deadpool could add another $30 million from the market.

Gotham Cast Discuss What They Want To See In Season 3

7 June 2016 11:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although the recently concluded second season of Gotham may still be fresh in our collective memory, it’s not too soon for us to look ahead to its third – and apparently the show’s cast agrees.

DC All Access recently caught up with several series regulars to discuss where they would like to see their characters go in the third season, along with which villains that have yet to be utilized they hope to see show up. It’s certainly no secret that the Batman mythos has an absurdly deep well to tap in that regard.

The first to give a most interesting response was that of Cory Michael Smith, who plays Edward Nygma. At this point, his character pretty much is The Riddler sans the stylized green suit, so it makes sense that he had the following to say:

“My absolute dream would be at some point to meet Query and Echo. »

Deadpool Tops Romance Chart on Amazon

5 June 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a record-breaking theatrical run, where it became the highest-grossing R-rated movie worldwide, Deadpool debuted on Blu-ray and DVD last month. The superhero adaptation actually debuted in theaters on Valentine's Day weekend, a fact that the studio exploited a number of times with unusual romance-themed promo material that positioned it as a http://movieweb.com/deadpool-movie-poster-romantic-comedy/RomCom. Now that the movie is available on Blu-ray and DVD, it's apparently become a big hit with romantics, according to Amazon.

A Reddit user posted a new photo that showcases Deadpool's Amazon page, which reveals that it's the #1 best seller in their Romance category. The movie has even beaten out traditional romances such as Pride + Prejudice + Zombies, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Purple Rain and The Danish Girl, which were listed as runners up in that section. Then again, it would make sense that this movie broke yet another convention, since »

Stan Lee jokes that his Deadpool cameo made him “damn mad”

1 June 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stan Lee enjoyed one of his more memorable Marvel cameos earlier this year, popping up as a DJ in a strip club in February’s smash hit Deadpool.

The Marvel legend had previously joked that he was disappointed the producers had him in and out of the club so quickly, but he’s now revealed that he never actually got to set foot in the place – and it made him “damn mad”.

“I don’t know if I should tell you the truth about that cameo,” said Lee at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida. “I was not in the topless dancing place. I did that in a studio and then they put it into the movie. I’m damn mad about that! I made them promise on the next one, I’m going to be right there.”

Stan Lee Reveals Why He’s “Damn Mad” About His Raunchy Deadpool Cameo

30 May 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Stan Lee didn’t create Deadpool (that credit belongs to Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza), but the Marvel Comics creator still made one of his famous cameo appearances in the R-Rated movie earlier this year. Inevitably, it ended up also being rather R-Rated, as it consisted of him being the DJ in the strip club that Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) was working in.

Talking at MegaCon this weekend, the man responsible for dreaming up the likes of The Avengers, Fantastic Four and Spider-Man jokingly revealed that the cameo actually made him “mad,” and here’s why:

“I don’t know if I should tell you the truth about that cameo. It will kill all your fun. I was not in the topless dancing place. I did that in a studio and then they put it into the movie, and I’m damn mad about that! I made them promise on the next one, »
