Why Nightcrawler Looks So Different In X-Men: Apocalypse

14 hours ago

X-Men: Apocalypse is finally out in theaters and, while it.s getting mixed reviews from critics, it.s taking down all competition in the box office. Despite how you may feel about the movie, you have to admit if there.s one thing an X-Men movie usually does well, it.s the makeup effects on the characters. The makeup on Mystique is always impressive, and say what you want about Apocalypse, but at least they went for it. Another character that boasts an impressive design is Nightcrawler, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee. Adrien Morot, head of the makeup effects department, recently shared with The Hollywood Reporter why the new Nightcrawler looks so different from Alan Cumming's in X-Men 2. Kodi is a younger-looking actor than Alan was in X-Men 2. Also, Alan was a grey-black in the original movie, and they had a problem lighting him. So we had to make sure »

The New Maze Runner Just Took A Major Step Backward, Get The Details

16 hours ago

Unfortunately, it.s been a rocky road for the production of Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third installment of the Maze Runner young adult movies. Star Dylan O.Brien suffered major injuries on set and production had to be halted indefinitely to give the star time to recover. Production was supposed to begin again this month, but it seems that things are more complicated than expected, and the film has been pushed back from its initial release date in 2017 to January 12, 2018.   According to Deadline, Maze Runner: The Death Cure was originally slated for release on February 17, 2017, but will now be pushed back almost a full year. The big delay is presumably to give Dylan O.Brien more time to recover before stepping back into the franchise. Production was temporarily stopped on March 28 when O.Brien was struck by a car during a stunt accident; there were conflicting reports as »

The Harsh Criticism John Carpenter Has For The Original Friday The 13th

16 hours ago

Horror fans rejoice. The slasher genre has remained dormant for quite some time, but will soon receive a serious shot in the arm. In the wake of innumerable found footage movies and remakes, John Carpenter will soon return to the Halloween franchise to set the genre back on course. Carpenter’s work remains instrumental for the world of horror, and Halloween went on to inspire numerous copycat franchises – most notably Friday the 13th. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery, but Carpenter apparently doesn’t seem too fond of Jason Voorhees’ corner of the slasher world.   During a recent appearance on the Bret Easton Ellis Podcast, the master of horror opened up about his feelings regarding Friday the 13th, and it seems that he’s not a fan: And Friday the 13th, I feel, affects me as very cynical. It’s »

New DC Video Shows Off Suicide Squad's Weapons

27 May 2016 5:08 PM, PDT

Bad guys love to cause trouble, and when they don’t have powers or special abilities to accomplish that, they turn to weapons. Such is the case for most of the main characters in Suicide Squad. After all, you can’t go on a dangerous black ops mission without being properly armed, and now you can see some of these weapons up close from a new exhibit showing off props from the DC Extended Universe. In DC Entertainment’s video peeking at the Warner Bros Studio Tour’s DC Universe: The Exhibit, we see things like Batman’s massive armor or the hunk of Kryptonite Lex Luthor obtained in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, it’s the costumes and weapons from Suicide Squad that really catch our interest. For instance, there’s a Harley Quinn mannequin carrying her definitely-not-for-sports baseball bat, »

His new film, Central Intelligence, will hit theaters later this summer, but after that he will remain a consistent presence in theaters with films such as the upcoming Baywatch reboot and the next Fast 8 – just to name a couple.

Watch How X-Men: Apocalypse Created The New Quicksilver Sequence

27 May 2016 2:43 PM, PDT

Warning: mild spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse are below! One of the most memorable moments from 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past was when Peter Maximoff, a.k.a. Quicksilver, raced around the Pentagon kitchen, everything around him in slow-motion because he was running so fast. Thanks to this, along with his other scene-stealing moments,  Quicksilver is back for X-Men: Apocalypse, and this time he’ll be racing through a different kind super speedy sequence. Now you can check out just how this was accomplished behind the scenes. In the start of this X-Men: Apocalypse video posted by 20th Century Fox, producer Hutch Parker noted how they wanted to differentiate Quicksilver’s big moment from what moviegoers saw in X-Men: Days of Future Past. This led to creating ‘The Extraction," where the speedster saves everyone in the X-Mansion in the seconds before it implodes. As »

That Seriously Gross Thing That Ethan Embry Did While Filming That Thing You Do

27 May 2016 2:09 PM, PDT

For most, That Thing You Do! is a sweet musical comedy drama starring and directed by Tom Hanks about a gang of guys who make it big with a one hit wonder and then slowly fall apart. It's got heartbreak, but it’s also pretty fun, as most Tom Hanks romps are…unless you consider the disgusting thing Ethan Embry just bravely revealed he did while filming. I don’t think I could put it into words, so I’ll just let this Tweet from Embry speak for itself.   Full disclosure: The day we shot this I shat myself on camera while playing bass cause my pet duck gave me dysentery https://t.co/fsRxiV9dVd — Ethan Embry (@EmbryEthan) May 27, 2016   Hopefully he was wearing his brown pants. Talk about that thing you do-do (last one, I promise). Okay, a couple »

Here's How Close Tom Hiddleston Is To Playing James Bond

27 May 2016 2:04 PM, PDT

Everybody has his or her own opinion as to what makes a proper James Bond. Roger Moore fans loved his campy and comical knack for one-liners, while fans of the Daniel Craig era seem to enjoy his more grounded, visceral approach to the character. With rumors swirling that Craig won’t return for the twenty-fifth Bond movie, the task has fallen upon the folks at Eon to try and find a new actor to fill the iconic tux. One such actor whose name has gone around the rumor mill is none other than Tom Hiddleston, which has us wondering one thing: how close is he to actually getting the part?   According to a new report from Birth. Movies. Death, sources close to Tom Hiddleston have confirmed that the actor has met with Eon about possibly taking over the role of James Bond from Daniel Craig. However, while the »

The Animated Spider-Man Movie May Make A Major Change To The Hero

27 May 2016 12:57 PM, PDT

Earlier this month, Spider-Man was introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe through Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland's performance was praised by numerous critics and fans, and his Peter Parker is returning next year for Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, the Web-Slinger isn't just getting live action attention on the big screen. Last year, it was announced that Sony is working on an animated Spider-Man movie that is unconnected to the MCU. Now it's being reported that it won't be Peter underneath the mask in this movie, but Miles Morales instead. While Peter Parker is having his McU adventures, Heroic Hollywood has heard that Miles Morales will be the focus of the animated Spider-Man movie. No plot details were revealed, so it.s unclear whether Peter Parker preceded him in this world or if Miles will be the only Spider-Man ever. Either way, if this rumor ends up »

27 May 2016 10:10 AM, PDT

Spoiler Warning: The following contains massive spoilers for the new comic book issue "DC Universe Rebirth." If you have not yet read this comic, and don’t wish to know any details before doing so, we highly recommend clicking away to another one of our wonderful articles! Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has emerged as one of the most divisive films of the year – and while the movie certainly has its hardcore supporters, even they can’t deny that the schism isn’t great for the growing big screen DC Extended Universe. The ideal situation would have been the blockbuster being as great and beloved as Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, but both critics and audience groups being split has resulted in an unfortunate degree of doubt surrounding the franchise’s future.

27 May 2016 8:45 AM, PDT

The mock pop-umentary comes from the minds of The Lonely Island and as such it.s filled with hilarious songs and dozens of celebrity cameos.
