To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Guardians Of The Galaxy Ticket

1 hour ago

While every Marvel Studios film has been released in 3D since Kenneth Branagh.s Thor back in 2011, the reality that it.s probably the weakest area of the company.s track record. None of the movies have ever been filmed in native stereoscope, and even though post-conversion has improved greatly over the last few years, Marvel.s features have never really looked that great with an added dimension. But that.s not stopping them from trying. Enter James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy. The 10th film from Marvel Studios is heading into theaters this weekend, and will be doing so both in 3D and 2D formats. Rather than making you guys gamble on spending an extra $5 for a pair of glasses with your movie ticket, however, we have once again applied our patented "To 3D or Not To 3D" breakdown system to help you determine the best way to »

The Mummy Reboot Is Still Happening And Alex Kurtzman Will Direct

2 hours ago

The Mummy is just the latest title to earn a reboot from Hollywood eager to repackage familiar names to us. The latest version of the legend is set to bow May 22nd, 2016, but has been director-less for awhile. Fortunately, the studio is eager to team with a man who mixes blockbuster experience with a totally fresh eye behind the camera. Yep, Universal's calling to the bullpen, and Alex Kurtzman is coming out. The Wrap reports that screenwriter Alex Kurtzman has been selected to helm the new version of The Mummy for Universal. This is a new vision of the character, distanced completely from the high adventure of the 1999 reboot and its sequels, and more indebted to the horror origins of the character. This new vision would harken back particularly to the movies from the silent and early talkies era that branded the Mummy as one of Universal's classic monsters like »

Into The Woods Images Reveal Prince Chris Pine And Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf

4 hours ago

We've been reporting plenty on Into The Woods and the incredible cast that Disney has assembled for the live-action movie musical. Now, after months of having to repost that one mediocre picture of Meryl Streep looking like a retired Bellatrix Lestrange, we finally have an avalanche of new images! People has shared a slew, including the one up top that has the aforementioned Streep towering over a trembling James Corden as The Baker. But Corden, who is the hero of this movie based on the Stephen Sondheim Broadway sensation, gets a better close-up in the pic below. There he's with Emily Blunt, who plays the Baker's Wife. And can I just add that Corden looks downright dashing here? He's come a ways since his time as the bumbling roomie on Doctor Who. Next up comes a bit of romance in the form of Rapunzel, played here by Mackenzie Mauzy. Then »

Listen To Vin Diesel Voice Groot In Five Other Languages

6 hours ago

Be warned, America, this weekend you will fall head over heels for a being of few words, brute strength, and a tender heart. He is Groot. He is on the verge of becoming a global star. And Vin Diesel demands to be a big part of it. Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel's latest tent pole, so of course it will be opening all over the world, from China to France, Russia to Mexico and Brazil. When foreign movies open in the U.S., American audience preferences dictate the use of subtitles so the dialogue won't get lost in translation. But the norm for much of the rest of the movie-going world is over-dubbing. So when Star-Lord, Rocket Racoon, Gamora and Drax The Destroyer leap into theaters overseas, that means the voices of Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista will be replaced by actors who speak whatever »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Already Breaking Records For 2014

6 hours ago

Guardians of the Galaxy hasn.t even opened in theaters, and already, it.s breaking records. Some at Marvel might have questioned the marketability of superheroes not named Thor and Captain America. This news should make them breathe a little easier. Fandango reports that James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy "is poised to be the biggest August pre-seller in Fandango.s history, far outpacing advance sales for the previous record-holder, Matt Damon.s 2007 The Bourne Ultimatum, and pacing to be this year.s #1 non-sequel pre-seller, beating the previous record-holder, The Lego Movie." Wow, that.s an impressive accomplishment. Those of us tracking the potential for Guardians worried about a few factors that might have counted against it. Chris Pratt, while charming, isn.t a bona-fide leading man yet. The characters include a talking raccoon and a tree hero. No one knows who the Guardians are. Fandango researched those ideas »

The Full Interstellar Trailer Is Flat Out Incredible And Has To Be Watched

6 hours ago

Holy choose-your-favorite-expletive here, Christopher Nolan has done it again. When I heard that he showed up at Comic Con last week and showed off this beautiful trailer, I'd heard some pretty big noise about just how good this trailer was. So the moment I saw the new Interstellar trailer online, I had to find the nearest, darkest space and replicate the perfect atmosphere to watch a trailer about space, love, and redemption for the human race. I suggest you do the same, click the play button above, and come back right after for some thoughts. Thanks to IndieWire for having that trailer up at the speed of light, which is exactly how fast my mind is going after watching that trailer. We previously gamed out that Interstellar was, above all else, about Cooper, a man (Matthew McConaughey) trying to save his family . as well as the rest of the world »

Mike Tyson Says Jamie Foxx Will Play Him In Upcoming Movie

6 hours ago

Jamie Foxx was a comedy legend, he's got an Oscar, and he was Django. So if you're going to pick anyone to play you in a movie, why not Jamie? He's already brought life to such important figures in black history like Ray Charles, Tookie Williams and Electro, and now he might be bulking up to take on the fiercest boxer in history. Jamie Foxx, one-time star of In Living Color, might end up playing Mike Tyson. The Daily Mirror has the scoop, claiming that Mike Tyson has handpicked Foxx to bring his life to the screen. "Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it. Within a year to 18 months, we.re going to do the Mike Tyson story and he.s going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie.s pretty much my age so he can.t »

Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb Wants You To Explore Its New Trailer

8 hours ago

Ah, so, we're doing this again? Above is the trailer to A Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb, the third part of what feels like a neverending series of children's films pretending to educate your child about history. Ben Stiller is back because Ben Stiller isn't a businessman, he's a business, man. And this time, his security guard Larry is tasked with porting the museum's many magical inhabitants to England, befitting a series that is absolutely huge overseas. It seems like some of the action spills out into the city this time around, so maybe they have a bigger budget. They'd have to, considering the theoretical raises everyone must have received to come back: also returning for this installment is Robin Williams' President Roosevelt, Ricky Gervais' Dr. McPhee and the trio of Dick Van Dyke, Bill Cobb and Mickey Rooney (in his final role). Also returning »

Steve Carell Will Headline Disney's Brooklyn Family Robinson

8 hours ago

Not just a great comedian, but a savvy businessman, Steve Carell has been producing his own vehicles since the 2005 smash hit The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Now, hot on the heels of the debut of his latest project -- the celebrity-studded game show Riot -- Carell has sold a new venture to Disney. This one called Brooklyn Family Robinson. THR reports Steve Carell will produce and star in Brooklyn Family Robinson, a family adventure comedy penned by David Reynolds, writer of the beloved Pixar classic Finding Nemo. The project will reteam Carell with the House of Mouse, which recently wrapped on Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, in which the former Office star appears alongside Bella Thorne, Jennifer Garner, Dylan Minnette, Jennifer Coolidge and Dick Van Dyke. A cast like that suggests that Disney can dig deep to build a fantastic ensemble to stand beside Carell for Brooklyn »

A Guardians Of The Galaxy End-Credits Scene Just Leaked, Revealed Cameos

8 hours ago

C.mon, Internet! This is part of the reason why we can.t have nice things! The big story surrounding the end-credits sequence for James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy is that there is No story. yet. The vaunted end-credits sequence . traditionally a big part of Marvel.s cinematic installments . have been left off of early print screenings of Guardians, meaning that crowds on opening day would be the first to enjoy the clip. Fans even asked Gunn, for sure, if the sequence(s) would be on Thursday evening prints, and he said: "@InfinityWatcher: Will Thursday.s late night showing have the end credits tag?" It will.. James Gunn (@JamesGunn) July 29, 2014 Except guess what? The footage leaked. It screened somewhere. And some joker with a phone (or a camera) recorded at least one of the end-credits sequences.

What Does #DCTrinity Mean, And How Will Wonder Woman Live Up To It?

9 hours ago

Is a hashtag a promise? That's what came to mind over the weekend during San Diego Comic Con, as Zack Snyder introduced his Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, with an intriguing hashtag: #DCTrinity. This could just be a way to emphasize that Wonder Woman is, indeed, DC's third most well-known character, and that now all three central characters at the heart of Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice have been seen by the public. The trinity is complete . we no longer need to show you any more photos until be debut a trailer in, oh, maybe a year. Or maybe it's something more. If Warner Bros. is serious about establishing their own superhero universe, they'll have to have a lynchpin, and it need not be one character. Batman and Superman are clearly the most visible heroes in DC's cinematic world thus far, but in the comics they hold down the foundations »

Harry Potter Team To Map Out Big Plans For The Franchise's Future

9 hours ago

If you guessed that the Harry Potter buzz would die down in the years following the release of the final movie, you'd be wrong. In fact, J.K. Rowling's beloved book series and the films that followed seem to be experiencing a resurgence of interest these days, likely due at least in part to the attention generated by the expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando and the opening of a similar park at Universal Studios Japan. From the sound of it, Warner Bros. is looking to push forward in expanding and promoting the Potter brand, and that apparently includes getting organized. Variety reports that Warner Bros. Entertainment has put together a "Harry Potter Global Franchise Development team," which will be based out of London and Burbank, with the goal of developing and executing "a high-level strategic vision for the Harry Potter Brand and its »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Gets A Poster, Teases Release Date

10 hours ago

Quentin Tarantino.s The Hateful Eight has taken an unusual path to production . even by Tarantino.s outside-the-box standards. For a while, this was going to be his follow-up to the Oscar-winning Django Unchained, keeping the writer-director in spaghetti Western mode. Then, as you might recall, the script leaked. and all hell broke loose. But the project appears to be back on track, and the poster above suggests a 2015 release date is in the cards. Empire shares the image above, clarifying that Quentin Tarantino.s eighth picture will be the revenge epic The Hateful Eight, with a crimson-colored 2015 in the corner to get fans. hopes up. The poster teases a "Special Roadshow Engagement" in 70Mm Super CinemaScope, which is twice the film stock ratio of a traditional 35Mm and was utilized . in the pre-imax era . for larger-than-life epics such as Ben-Hur, Cleopatra and Lawrence of Arabia.

Watch The Statler And Waldorf Cut Of Muppets Most Wanted

10 hours ago

Spartacus, Apocalypse Now, and even Kill Bill all suffered the slings and arrows of editorial misfortune, losing moments their creators thought really tied the project together. Of course, some auteurs go the other way and cut their films in length in order to really put a button on their classics, such as Ridley Scott's Alien clocking in a couple of minutes shorter than the original. In the tradition of those greats, we now have a cut of Muppets Most Wanted, as seen by its most reserved critics: Statler and Waldorf. USA Today was the lucky publication to gain access to the preferred version of one of this year's most underrated comedic gems, and it's a cut that has a lot to talk about. Mainly, the fact that the film is only made up of two scenes, both of which feature the creators to a certain extent. It's daring! It's bold! »

Gaby Hoffmann's Paranoid Thriller Lyle Will Premiere Online For Free Next Week

11 hours ago

Gaby Hoffmann has transitioned well as the child star of Now and Then and Field of Dreams, embracing adulthood and a career resurgence with nuanced performances for last year.s festival hit Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus and her recurring role on HBO.s Girls. Hoffmann's next project is something else entirely, as she.s starring in the Rosemary.s Baby-ish horror Lyle, the first feature from writer/director Stewart Thorndike. Perhaps as interesting as the film itself, Thorndike and producer Alex Scharfman are distributing the film via online streaming.for free. On Monday, August 4, anyone can head to the Lyle website to stream the film in its entirety at no charge. Now, it.s not completely unheard of for indie movies to hit the net first, but it usually involves something that no one would want to spend money on in the first place. (Humble opinion.)

Wesley Snipes Wants To Make Blade 4

11 hours ago

Wesley Snipes' movie career was briefly derailed when he was sent to prison in 2010 over tax evasion. But he's out and raring to rev up his action hero status once more, first with The Expendables 3, then possibly with Blade 4. Speaking with MTV, Snipes was quick to dip into his Blade voice upon request, and when asked if he'd consider reprising the role of the dhampir dead-set on slaying vampires, Snipes was clearly enthusiastic about the idea. He said: "I'd be open to it. You know I think we got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude for us to build on. I'd love to get back in the suit and do some things that I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then. I think we're better at making that kind of a film now. You know, some of the things that »

Simon Pegg Responds To Rumor He's In Star Wars: Episode VII

12 hours ago

Simon Pegg's nerd cred is partially built on a deep and vocal hatred of Star Wars: Episodes I-iii. But could he be turning a new leaf in its legacy by joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII? That's the rumor. And now he's weighing in. While Comic-Con didn't give us some of the revelations we expected (Shazam!), Pegg's Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Benedict Cumberbatch dropped a potential bombshell when he implied in an MTV interview that Simon Pegg would be re-teaming with Star Trek director J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: Episode VII. But what does Pegg say? Well, Vulture caught up with him at a NY screening of Hector and the Search for Happiness, where he responded to the rumor by saying: "Well, J.J. uses me in different roles, and we.re good friends. I feel like my face in Star Wars would pop people »

This Week In Home Entertainment: Noah, Twin Peaks And More

22 hours ago

Noah Blu-ray Darren Aronofsky has proven throughout his career that he is capable of stunning visuals and unique storytelling. The director needed both when pursuing the massive movie project, Noah, a story about a biblical flood and thousand of creatures sheltered by one family during the darkest of times. Aronofsky mostly pulls it off, telling a compelling biblical tale with ties to nature, and even monsters of a sort. Noah isn.t the family-friendly story people only familiar with the title might expect. Early on, we are introduced to a young Noah, who witnesses the death of his father at the hands of a sinning man named Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone). As a grown-up, Noah (Russell Crowe) strives to live by the more earthly tenets his father taught them, tenets he then teaches his own wife (Jennifer Connelly) and sons (Logan Lerman, Douglass Booth and Leo McHugh Carroll). He begins to »

Fast & Furious 7 Just Got Fancier In The Form Of An Iggy Azalea Cameo

23 hours ago

The Fast & Furious franchise is supposed to be fun. With fast cars, beautiful women, insane stunts and chaotic action, the movies are supposed to be fun escapes. Unfortunately, the death of co-lead actor Paul Walker flipped the script on Fast & Furious 7 and pushed the production into a much darker territory. Thanks to the help of Walker.s brothers and a can-do spirit, however, the franchise is emerging from the darkness and ready to start having fun again, which is probably why they.re giving fans a really fun cameo. You know Iggy Azalea? Yes, you know who she is. She.s in the fast lane from La to Tokyo (Nsfw). Yeah, that girl. Well, she apparently brought her charm, rapping skills and physical presence to the set of Fast & Furious 7, where she shot some kind of footage. Exactly what sort of role she.ll play is unclear, but Vin Diesel »
