10 Questions From ‘The Maze Runner’ That Need to Be Answered in ‘The Scorch Trials’

1 hour ago

There are a lot of big questions left unanswered by The Maze Runner. But it’s the kind of movie where you can’t expect complete clarification and closure, because the continued mystery is what keeps audiences interested in returning for future episodes. I say episodes rather than sequels since that’s more like what they are. The Maze Runner ends with a cliffhanger, and for the sake of the story it’s a good thing the movie opened well over the weekend. In response, Fox announced yesterday that the adaptation to the second book in the series, “The Scorch Trials,” is already on track for a theatrical release one year from now, on September 18, 2015. While I don’t expect to learn everything I’m dying to know at that time — there’s at least one other sequel installment (“The Death Cure“) and a prequel (“The Kill Order“) that will fill all the gaps — I do hope »

Colin Farrell Will Now Provide All Our ‘True Detective’ News

7 hours ago

If Colin Farrell is really serious with this True Detective business, he’s going to have learn how to shut up (or at least willfully misdirect his audience) sooner rather than later. Farrell has been in the possible casting mix for the critically acclaimed HBO series’ second season since July, and while we’ve heard plenty of rumors as to who else could star in the series, Farrell is the first “confirmed” member of the cast. Well, that’s what Farrell says. The actor told Sunday World’s “The Dub” (uh) that he’s set for the show, reportedly sharing with the outlet: “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.” Desperate for more details? Well, too bad, because that’s pretty much all “The Dub” is willing to share unless you’re willing to pay to become a member of their “exclusive club” (is this True Detective cosplay?). Don »

Unseen Superhero Cameos Are the Hot New Thing in Comic Book Movies

8 hours ago

Stan Lee cameos and Easter eggs that are actually visible to the eye are old hat as comic book movie conventions. The hot new thing is apparently to have an unseen cameo from a notable superhero. This trend may include the slight references to the existence of offscreen characters, like the acknowledgement of Black Panther in Iron Man 3, Stephen Strange (aka Dr. Strange) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Adam Warlock in Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy, but now it’s starting to be bigger than those inconsequential fan-service winks. Characters are showing up in and adding to the action of major comic book movie plots without actually being visible in the frame or named in any way whatsoever. So far, we’ve already gotten Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, in the Captain America sequel and Aquaman in Man of Steel. Don’t recall seeing either? Exactly »

What Did You Watch This Weekend?

9 hours ago

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. I’m at Fantastic Fest this weekend, so all of my movie watching has been focused on fest titles. It’s been more of a mixed bag this year than expected, and so far my favorite films playing here are still a handful of ones I saw previously elsewhere including Blind, The Babadook and No Man’s Land. I’ve seen some strong contenders though this weekend including the new one from the boys at Astron-6, The Editor. It’s an over the top homage to Italian horror and giallo films, and »
