‘Star Wars Rebels’ Renewed for Season 2 Before Series Premiere

35 minutes ago

Disney/LucasFilm seems to be taking a page out of the Disney/Marvel playbook, because they have made the bold move of renewing the new Star Wars animated series Star Wars Rebels before the show has even premiered on Disney Xd.

Rebels is significant because it officially kicks off the new Star Wars canon and shared universe, which will then expand into the Star Wars Episode VII movie next year, as well as several planned Star Wars spinoff films. In such an ambitious design brand strength is everything, so Disney/Lucas seems to be investing heavily, early on, in Rebels – much like Marvel has done with its TV spinoff Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., despite some disappointing ratings.

Disney Channels Worldwide President and Cco Gary Marsh offered ...

‘Constantine’ Sneak Preview Offers a Look at the Pilot

43 minutes ago

DC fans are in for a treat this fall, when four different TV shows based on DC characters will all be airing at various times of the week. On The CW there’s the third season of Arrow and spin-off series The Flash, Fox has Batman prequel/police procedural Gotham, and NBC is premiering Constantine, an adaptation of the Hellblazer comics from DC’s Vertigo imprint.

Whereas Arrow and Gotham largely deal with human villains and The Flash has more of a sci-fi spin, Constantine is a dark fantasy series that seems to be more along the lines of Supernatural. Protagonist John Constantine, a “petty dabbler” in the dark arts, is released from a psychiatric facility where he was being treated for trauma after accidentally sending a young girl to hell. Not long after his release, Constantine becomes drawn into ...

‘Terminator Genisys’: J.K. Simmons Talks Quality Script & Cast

1 hour ago

The Terminator franchise is getting a reboot in the form of Terminator Genisys, a movie that brings back Arnold Schwarzenegger for a revisit to the original Terminator movie via some yet-unexplained time travel mechanics that are currently best explained with vague comparison to Back to the Future Part IIX-Men: Days of Future Past or J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot.

Arnold will play a T-800 who has somehow been involved in the Terminator saga since the first film (hence his aged flesh exterior) but has somehow not yet been seen in the franchise. Joining him will be Die Hard 5 star Jai Courtney as a new version of Kyle Reese, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke as a young Sarah Connor, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star ...

‘Dracula Untold’ Begins Universal’s Monster Movie Shared Universe

2 hours ago

Tomorrow, Universal will begin the international theatrical rollout for Dracula Untold, an origin story that reveals the events and choices that set human Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) on a path to becoming the infamous vampire known as Count Dracula. As such, rumors have been circulating about whether or not the film will be part of Universal’s reboot of its Shared Monsters Universe. According to producer Alissa Phillips (see above), it’s currently intended to be part of the relaunch.

Certain members of the Screen Rant staff have seen Dracula Untold (look for our review when it arrive in the U.S. next week) and can confirm that the film does indeed feature material that appears to be setup for a fresh Shared Monsters Universe – something that early reviews for the movie have likewise alluded to.

‘I Am Legend’ Reboot in the Works

10 hours ago

The 2007 I Am Legend film – starring Will Smith – was so successful (it made nearly $600 million against a $150 million budget) that Warner Bros. attempted multiple times to produce a followup with Smith in it, despite the fact that his character did not survive the first film.

Those followups, of course, never came to fruition, but apparently Warners’ desire to make more I Am Legend films remained. Now, more than six years after the original film hit theaters, a new I Am Legend is in development. But don’t expect a sequel or a prequel to the original, as this new project will instead be a reboot.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is “retrofitting” a script ...

‘The Bridge’ Season 2 Finale Review

13 hours ago

[This is a review of The Bridge season 2, episode 13. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Whether this turns out to be the final episode of The Bridge or not is a concern that should probably come after a discussion of the actual finale. Therefore, as an episode, ‘Jubilex’ is worthy of high praise for the way it wrangled so many individual story threads and still delivered one of the most comprehensive and satisfying season finales in recent memory. It’s the kind of conclusion that makes it almost impossible not to think about the myriad stories that await Sonya, Marco, Frye and Adriana, and even the eternally grizzled Lt. Hank Wade.

Okay, so it’s hard ...

‘Agents of Shield’ Casts Ward’s Brother; Mockingbird Actress On Her Future in the McU

17 hours ago

With ABC and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. two episodes into its sophomore season, the show has been compared to Fox’s Gotham in terms of ratings, as well as quality television. On its own, the series has moved forward after the somewhat contentious first half of its first season, though whether or not Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s second season has improved remains up to the individual viewer — read our review of the latest episode to see where we land.

One of the ways in which Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has upped the ante in its sophomore season is by adding well known actors and ...

‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ Rumor: New Characters & Familiar Planets

19 hours ago

[Potential Mild Spoilers for Episode VII ahead!]

-

We’re still a ways off from the time when we can reasonably expect some official information on Star Wars: Episode VII to be made available, but in the meantime the rumor mill is doing a pretty terrific job of stirring the pot on its own. Today’s batch of rumors involve the Episode VII characters played by Daisy Ridley – who is said to be portraying one of the protagonists (if not the protagonist) of the third Star Wars film trilogy – and Max von Sydow.

You might recall that Sydow was rumored to be playing Episode VII‘s main villain some time ago… and that ...

‘The Theory of Everything’ Trailer #2: The Story of Stephen Hawking

19 hours ago

In the ten years since Benedict Cumberbatch played esteemed scientist Stephen Hawking in the BBC biopic Hawking the actor has become a major star, and now another up-and-coming actor is tackling the role in true-life drama The Theory of Everything. Based on an autobiography by Hawking’s wife, Jane Hawking, The Theory of Everything stars Eddie Redmayne in the lead role and Felicity Jones, David Thewlis and Charlie Cox among its supporting cast.

Since the book upon which The Theory of Everything is based was written from Jane Hawking’s perspective, the love story has been placed at the center of the film (or at least, at the center of its marketing) and is intertwined with the struggles that Hawking went through after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the age of 21.

The second ...

‘Justice League: Throne of Atlantis’ Trailer: Aquaman’s Wartime Origin

21 hours ago

The DC Entertainment animated branch continues its shared universe expansion with Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, the latest installment in the animated features based on the New 52 Comic book reboot.

The Justice League has been the main thrust of the animated universe, with Flashpoint Paradox and Justice League: War setting the new continuity and introducing modern versions of our favorite heroes. Not to be outdone, Batman has branched of for his own solo adventures in this new universe, via Son of Batman and Batman: Assault on Arkham. Now the Justice League thread continues with Throne of Atlantis, a third entry that follows right along the path of the New 52 comics.

The trailer depicts (as usual) a film that is at once in keeping with – and a departure from – the comic book storyline. As seen in a post-credits ...

Ben Affleck & Jon Stewart Debate Who Will Win in ‘Batman V Superman’

22 hours ago

For decades, comic book readers have debated which fan-favorite superheroes would come out on top – if they were to face-off. “Who would win in a fight between [insert superhero] versus [insert superhero]?” has provided fans countless hours of friendly (and sometimes not-so-friendly) dialogue - as readers ponder which hero (or villain) is at the top of the comic book food chain. Sometimes the match-ups cross publisher lines (Who would win in a fight between Green Arrow and Hawkeye?), other times they remain in-house – as is the case with the upcoming superhero crossover film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

As we’ve discussed in numerous Batman V Superman articles, and on the Screen ...

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 2 Becomes A ‘Must Watch’ in Week 2

23 hours ago

[This is a Review of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2, Episode 2 – There Will Be Spoilers!!]

Let’s put the past behind us, shall we? Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 began with clear intentions to deliver upon all its palpable potential from last year. In this week’s episode, those ideals are realized – some may say completely – as a truly impressive adventure continues to build this series into something quite rewarding.

In this week’s episode, “Heavy is the Head”, written by Day Break creator Paul Zbyszewski, Talbot enlists the help of Hartley’s (Lucy Lawless) mercenary friend, Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), to deliver Phil Coulson (Clark ...

Russell Crowe’s ‘The Water Diviner’ Gets a Trailer & Poster

23 hours ago

Oscar season is nearly upon us, and it has brought with it a grand collection of trailers for movies that are silently (and not-so-silently) pleading for attention in the major Academy Awards categories. There’s Robert Downey Jr. courtroom drama The Judge, true-life chiller Foxcatcher, David Fincher’s mystery thriller Gone Girl and Angelina Jolie’s Louis Zamperini biopic Unbroken, to name just a few.

Jolie made her feature directorial debut in 2011 with In the Land of Blood and Honey, and this year another Academy Award winning actor is trying his hand at directing drama. Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner looks like the perfect recipe for Academy attention: it’s got a protagonist with a heartfelt quest (played by Crowe), a dead wife, a First World War backdrop, exotic locations and even a Shawshank Redemption-esque shot of the main character standing in water ...

Is Fran Kranz Playing Speedball In ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’?

23 hours ago

Two episodes into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC and it’s clear that the series is relying more on characters from Marvel Comics. Air Force officer Glenn Talbot (Adrian Pasdar) – known for hunting Hulk in the comics – has made it a mission to capture Coulson and end his small ragtag group of S.H.I.E.L.D. loyalists, all the while Crusher Creel a.k.a. Absorbing Man has offered the show’s cast a unique super-powered foe to contend with.

And there are more notable characters on the way, only a few that have been officially revealed. Next week’s episode will see the return of Donnie Gill a.k.a. Blizzard (Dylan Minnette) and episode 5 will introduce Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) who will potentially have a reoccurring role, one that we ...

‘Interstellar’ Final Trailer; Early IMAX Screenings Announced

23 hours ago

Marketing for Interstellar has been heating up recently, and that continues today with a fresh trailer that includes plenty of previously-unseen footage.

Don’t worry, though, it doesn’t reveal much about co-writer/director Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi film that we didn’t already know; namely, that the story follows one “Coop” (Matthew McConaughey), an expert pilot who leads a mission into space – along with astronauts played by Anne Hathaway, Wes Bentley, and David Gyasi – to find a new home for humankind, now that the ecological system on Earth can no longer sustain us. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Jessica Chastain’s character (presumed to be McConaughey’s grown-up daughter in the film) must struggle to stay alive in an increasingly harsh and volatile environment.

‘The Interview’ Set Visit: Seth Rogen & James Franco vs. North Korea (in Canada)

23 hours ago

I didn’t have to be asked twice if I wanted to visit the Vancouver set of Seth Rogen’s latest comedic endeavor, The Interview. Not only was he teaming up with James Franco again, it’s always a treat to watch the comedy genius in action especially behind the scenes.

Rogen co-directs The Interview with his childhood buddy, Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, Pineapple Express), drawing from a script that the pair co-penned with former Daily Show executive producer, and South Park writer, Dan Sterling. The duo who refuse to be pigeon-holed are touching on a new genre: Dr. Strangelove-esque absurdist political satire.

‘Dracula Untold’: ‘Meet Mirena’ Featurette & Early Reviews

1 October 2014 8:43 AM, PDT

Dracula Untold is certainly one of this month’s most anticipated films; not just because it retells Dracula’s origins by way of a stylized big-budget war epic, but also since it could be the first brick in Universal’s rebooted Shared Monster Movie Universe. However, before we carry on about sequels and/or related upcoming monster movie reboots, we first need to see if Dracula Untold goes over well enough to warrant this iteration of the Dracula mythos being continued.

Luke Evans headlines Dracula Untold as Vlad Tepes, a noble warrior in 15th century Transylvania, who strikes a deal with dark supernatural forces in an attempt to protect his kingdom from an invading sultan (Dominic Cooper). The latest featurette for the movie focuses on the character of Mirena (Sarah Gadon) and her relationship with her husband, Vlad. In other words, if we’re being ...

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’: Christian Bale on Moses, Biblical Scale, & Charlton Heston

1 October 2014 8:38 AM, PDT

One of the most surprising aspects of Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical action epic Exodus: Gods and Kings is that it marks the first director/actor collaboration between Scott and star Christian Bale. Just seems these two should’ve crossed filmmaking paths long before now, does it not? Lucky for us and audiences, we’ll soon get to see the fruits of their labor when Exodus arrives in theaters December 12. Until then, there is a new trailer to analyze along with intel from Bale himself.

Last night in Los Angeles Screen Rant was invited to view the trailer and roughly 30 minutes of footage, followed by a ten-minute conversation with Bale moderated ...

5 Reasons to Watch ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ on Home Media

1 October 2014 8:27 AM, PDT

This summer marked one of the worst domestic box office performances in years – and even films that scored well with critics had a struggle to maintain strong legs, commercially. Case in point: Edge of Tomorrow, which was released to rave reviews this past June, with many praising Doug Liman’s latest for being an entertaining thrill-ride that represents what audiences love to see at the multiplex.

As many know, Edge couldn’t translate its strong word-of-mouth into hefty domestic profits, finishing in second during its opening weekend before engaging on a long, slow crawl to $100 million  domestically (near $370 million worldwide). Whether you chalk up its performance ...
