Season 2 of Daredevil to be "Daredevil vs. The Punisher"

6 hours ago

After the announcement that Jon Bernthal would be portraying Frank Castle aka The Punisher in season 2 of Netflix's "Daredevil," people have been curious about how much of an impact the character would have on the show. Would he show up for just one episodec Would he be a major player in the seriesc According to one of the new "Daredevil" showrunners, it looks like he might be more important than we originally thought. "Daredevil" co-showrunner Marco Ramirez described the new season to Nerdist as "Daredevil vs. The Punisher." The Punisher has always been a character that often finds himself on the opposite sides of the heroes. His methods, usually including murder, going against the morals of most the heroes in the Marvel Universe. So, based on that description we can expect some fisticuffs between Castle and Daredevil. This, however, doesn't mean The Punisher is the "big bad" for the season. »

Paul Feig Reveals New 'Ghostbusters' Uniforms

6 hours ago

It's actually happening. I have been reporting on a new Ghostbusters film for what feels like decades and while the reports I had been writing about revolved around a third Ghostbusters movie, it turns out it will be the Paul Feig-directed, female led Ghostbusters that we'll actually see in theaters come July 22, 2016, and thank God for that. As filming on the new Ghostbusters is now underway in New York, Feig has tweeted out the first look at the jumpsuits that will be worn by the lead cast, which includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. As of right now it's only known Chris Hemsworth will play the receptionist for the Ghostbusters as all the roles have been flipped on their head and I have to be honest, I absolutely love what Feig has lined up here, now here's to hoping the movie is as good as its cast. »

'Star Trek 3' Title Confirmed, First Photo from Set Revealed

6 hours ago

At one point it was thought Star Trek 3 would be titled Star Trek Forever, but then Star Trek Beyond become the go-to title for the upcoming film and today director Justin Lin took to Twitter to confirm the title and release the first set picture from the now-shooting sequel. "Let the next Starfleet voyage begin," posted Lin in his tweet along with a Starfleet patch. One could assume a lot from this as it most likely (and hopefully I might add) means we will officially begin the iconic five-year mission of the starship Enterprise to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations and boldly go where no man has gone before. Enough of Earth already, let's keep things moving in space shall wec Star Trek Beyond is set for a July 8, 2016 release. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin and John Cho return along »

Sony Slates 'I Saw the Light' for Awards Slot, Tom Hiddleston Looking for First Nom

7 hours ago

Sony Pictures Classics has dated Marc Abraham's I Saw the Light for a Nov. 27 release, which all but guarantees an Oscar push for the film and most likely a big push for Tom Hiddleston who stars in the feature as legendary country western singer Hank Williams. The pic is now slotted alongside fellow Oscar hopeful The Danish Girl, though both films will probably be looking to make a big splash on the Fall film festival circuit, already establishing an awards season narrative before the general public lays their eyes on either of them. The pic, which also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Whitford, David Krumholtz and Cherry Jones, chronicles Williams' meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. Hiddleston is probably best known to most as Loki from The Avengers film franchise, but 2015 is looking to be a year where he makes a »

Official 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Title Embraces the Mixtape

8 hours ago

There are still no details on the film's plot but the official title for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has been revealed and it's sticking close to its mixtape connection. Speculation as to the title began earlier when Collider posted an interview with Marvel's Kevin Feige where he said, "We start shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 in February-March 2016." Speculation began immediately as to whether or not that was the official title since it made more than enough sense given it plays well with the idea of Star-Lord's mixtape from the film "Awesome Mix Vol. 1". As it turns out, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the official title as confirmed by writer/director James Gunn on Facebook and Twitter. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the sequel to the 2014 movie starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista and featuring the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, it is set »

Jc Chandor Lines Up One Time Kathryn Bigelow Pic 'Triple Frontier'

9 hours ago

Back in 2011 I wrote about a film called Triple Frontier as a possible Oscar contender that year. It was from the writer/director duo Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow and it was to star Tom Hanks. Since then, the project hasn't gone away despite some trepidation from Paramount Pictures at one point involving a possible $80 million budget. However, while the film hasn't died, Bigelow and Boal have moved on to the Bowe Bergdahl story leaving a director's chair open, a chair that looks like it may have just been filled. Deadline reports J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) is in talks to direct the picture with Hanks still in the conversation as well as Will Smith. The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Igazu and Parana rivers converge -- making "la triple frontera" difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime. Specific story details, »

Del Toro Exits 'Justice League Dark' Just as 'Hellboy 3' Rumors Surface

9 hours ago

Guillermo del Toro always has several projects lined up, whether he's producing or directing there is never a shortage of titles he may or may not tackle. One such title many were looking forward to seeing was whatever he had planned for Justice League Dark, centered on characters such as John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Demon, Deadman and Zatanna. However, THR now reports del Toro has exited the project. It's a shame really as it would have added a nice bit of variety to superhero cinema, but as I said del Toro has more than enough on his plate. He's currently finishing up Crimson Peak for an Oct. 16 release and after that he has Pacific Rim 2, which is slotted for an Aug. 4, 2017 release. However, while del Toro has pretty much squashed the chances of a Hellboy 3 in the past, star Ron Perlman hasn't given up hope, recently campaigning on »

'Terminator Genisys' Director Pretty Much Confirms Studios Pay too Much Attention to the Internet

10 hours ago

Kudos to Terminator Genisys director Alan Taylor for not avoiding the question when recently asked about what seemed to be incredibly spoiler-filled trailers and marketing for the upcoming sequel. If you're unsure of what I'm referring to and would like to remain in the dark you'll want to stop reading now, otherwise, let's forge on. The trailers have given us not only a peek at old Arnold Schwarzenegger battling with a CG version of his 1984 self from the original The Terminator, but given away the fact Jason Clarke's John Connor in the new film is in fact a Terminator. In an interview with Uproxx, the interviewer says they wished they hadn't known these plot details from the trailer to which Taylor says, "Yeah, it's funny; I certainly directed those scenes with the intention that no one would know. One of my favorite moments - and I think Jason Clarke »

Is Tyrese Really the New Green Lanternc

11 hours ago

Either Tyrese Gibson really likes to fuel rumors and speculation, or we just might have our John Stewart. After recent reports that he might be up for the role of John Stewart in Justice League as well as the rebooted Green Lantern film, Gibson has taken to Instagram and the press to hint that he might already be cast. In an interview with Et, Tyrese had some interesting things to say about recent rumors that he and Chris Pine might be teaming up in the upcoming Green Lantern film. "I took the oath. I had a meeting at Warner Bros. and certain things were said and talked about," he said. Gibson continues, "You know, listen, there are certain things I can't speak on. But I will say that, however way this works out, it's definitely the fans' fault. I was at home minding my own business and fans start creating »

'Amy' (2015) Movie Review

12 hours ago

Asif Kapadia's power is a quiet one, particularly with his latest documentary, Amy, a somber and appropriately lyrical examination of lost talent and unearned potential from the late 27-year-old jazz singer Amy Winehouse. Kapadia uses his refined talents to his full advantage, archiving a wealth of home footage and unbridled access to those who knew and loved the "Rehab" singer the most to create a deftly insightful look into an artist so few knew beyond the tabloids. It's empathetic, sure, but Kapadia doesn't let sensitivity dictate the story until the end, when the emotions are not only earned but have flourished. He's also not afraid to examine the details which lead to her demise with stern focus and concentrated attention, rarely sugarcoating the problems in her life and those directly, and indirectly, responsible. It's easy to say Winehouse's tragedy stemmed from a lack of attention she so desperately sought and needed. »

Five "Must-See" Movies for July 2015

14 hours ago

Normally, I'm not one to brag, but I would like to say right off the bat, I think I did pretty well with my must-see list last month. Of my five official picks -- Spy, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope and Inside Out -- the closest I got to suggesting you see a movie people generally didn't like was Jurassic World, which has broken all sorts of box office records and sits at a "fresh" 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not that box office results or Rotten Tomatoes are the ultimate barometers of quality, but I have to base this off something, rightc Personally I didn't much care for the new Jurassic film aside from a few scenes of enormous spectacle, but others found plenty to like in it. I also ended up seeing Dope twice -- that one might be my favorite movie so far this »

'Magic Mike Xxl' (2015) Movie Review

15 hours ago

Magic Mike Xxl is what many were expecting 2012's Magic Mike to be only to end up with much more of a dramatic piece. Instead of carrying much dramatic weight, this sequel is more focused on bumping, grinding and the fun a carload of male strippers can deliver to anyone of any age as they road trip up the East Coast from Miami to Myrtle Beach. There isn't much of a story as much as a collection of scenes, and while you may ultimately find yourself caught up and enjoying each, there's a repetitive nature to each scene and the air almost comes out of the movie every time a new one starts. As much fun as Magic Mike Xxl may be, and as much as some audience members are going to appreciate the fact it's more about skin and gyrating hips, the amateur nature of the plotting does cause »

Ooo La La, Get Your Kicks with First Nsfw 'Love' Trailer

15 hours ago

I can't say I have any real interest in seeing Gaspar Noe's Love, a 3D feature delivering all the explicit goodness of your favorite porno, though Noe works a little harder to offer up a narrative, which, I guess, somehow makes it something differentc Here's the plot: January the 1st, early morning. The telephone rings. Murphy wakes up next to his young wife and 2-year-old child. He listens to his voicemail: Electra's mother, sick with worry, wants to know whether he has heard from her daughter. Electra's been missing for a long time. She's afraid something really bad has happened to her. Over the course of a long rainy day, Murphy finds himself alone in his apartment, reminiscing about the greatest love affair of his life, his two years with Electra. A burning passion full of promises, games, excesses and mistakes... The film stars Karl Glusman, Aomi Muyock and Klara Kristin »

"True Detective" Recap & Review: Season 2, Episode 2, "Night Finds You"

28 June 2015 9:06 PM, PDT

"True Detective" ups the ante in every way and settles into its comfortable procedural grove this week. Its season premiere may require more than one viewing to truly appreciate (having watched the episode again, I can say it does improve), but "Night Finds You" is full of all the elements that made the first season such a standout. The episode opens with Semyon (Vince Vaughn) concerned for his legacy. Subtlety is nowhere to be found as quick flashes of Semyon's large empty house are intercut with him lamenting the fact he and his wife Jordan (Kelly Reilly) do not have children. When Frank recalls his five days in the dark as a child and his terror at being locked in the basement, his desire for some sort of lasting contribution becomes clear. Semyon straddles the line between legitimacy and his gangster past for most of this hour and he seems »

The Podcast You Deserve: S2 E2 "Night Finds You"

28 June 2015 8:16 PM, PDT

The second episode of the second season of "True Detective" is on the books and we're back with the "True Detective" podcast, "The Podcast You Deserve", featuring myself, Brad Brevet, and Kevin Jagernauth from The Playlist as we continue our recaps and reviews of each episode of this new season. The season two premiere was met with mixed reactions and even Kevin and I felt it was a little clunky (sort of like our first episode of this podcast), but the second episode definitely picks up steam and has a whopper of a final scene. Playing large roles in this episode are Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro and Rachel McAdams as Ani Bezzerides on the side of the detectives and Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn) on the other side of the law, though there's a little something to Frank that makes us wonder if by the end of this season will »
