The Avenger Josh Brolin Turned To For Advice On Playing Thanos

9 June 2016 6:35 AM, PDT

With every passing entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we get closer and closer to Marvel.s endgame. An all-hands on deck, knock down, drag out battle between earth.s mightiest heroes and Thanos the mad titan. While Josh Brolin has been making the occasional cameo, usually during the credits of other films, he.ll be taking center stage before we know it. It.s going to be a big deal when that time for Thanos to shine finally comes. The man behind the purple-skinned alien is looking forward to doing more, and in preparation for the motion capture heavy work, he went to another member of the McU with experience to get a better idea of what he was in for: the Incredible Hulk, Mark Ruffalo. Josh Brolin and Mark Ruffalo have been friends for some time, and Ruffalo now has extensive experience, playing the Hulk in a pair »

Bill Murray Gives His Most Honest Reaction Yet To The Ghostbusters Remake

9 June 2016 6:29 AM, PDT

It.s hard out here for a Ghostbuster. If you happen to be one of the new, female cast members, you are dealing with a consistent trickle of online aggression against your upcoming comedy. And if you are an original Ghostbuster, an Og like Dan Aykroyd, you get accused of taking a buy out if you dare say something positive about Paul Feig.s upcoming comedy. The one member of the original team who seems like he.s earned a pass in all of this is Bill Murray. because he.s Bill F.ing Murray. So when he opened up about the new Ghostbusters, we all sat up and listened intently. Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, which led to the new cast joining the original cast on Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night. During an interview segment, Bill Murray admits that he was overly protective of the idea of anyone redoing Ghostbusters, and »

This Letter Chris Evans Sent Casting Directors Proves He Was Destined To Be A Star

9 June 2016 3:01 AM, PDT

When you look at Chris Evans these days, you can't help but think the man is a perfect fit as Captain America. A strong presence that knows his job well, and serves as an example to us all, his work ethic is only matched by his talents. But, of course, Evans was once a young upstart who was finding his way, much like Steve Rogers before Dr. Erskine's Vita-Ray treatment turned him into a beast. And now, we've got some proof of what Evans' upstart years were like, as he's shared the following letter from his junior year of high school, in which he pitches himself to casting agencies as an eager intern. You can read that letter below. Wow. My dad found the letter I sent to Dozens of casting directors during my junior year. Hilarious. #bestsummerever pic.twitter.com/9pyZxAVisk.

One Way Thor Ragnarok Will Be Different From Previous Thor Movies, According To Mark Ruffalo

9 June 2016 2:29 AM, PDT

For the most part, the Thor series has been one of royal politics, one certain inter-dimensional love affair, and a bunch of monsters from other realms paying a visit to ours. It's not exactly the lightest of material, and with the Marvel Cinematic Universe already being dark enough on its own, a little bit of humor would be welcomed in the life of Odin's favorite son. Well as luck would have it, Thor: Ragnarok will have just that, according to The Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo. During an interview with MovieFone for Now You See Me 2, the actor best known in recent years as the green tinted rage monster that Marvel fans know and love was asked what he felt Thor: Ragnarok could bring to the table that the previous two installments couldn't. Not missing a beat, Ruffalo laid down the following difference between the third installment and »

The Final Trailer For The Shallows Is Chilling And Suspenseful

8 June 2016 7:29 PM, PDT

Full disclosure time: the first trailer for Blake Lively's The Shallows was a bit underwhelming. Between a vague tagline that just didn't sound enticing, as well as the extremely limited look at what was going on, the film wasn't selling itself all that well. However, this final trailer more than makes up for that, as it provides the ominous atmosphere the teaser should have. You can watch for yourself below. Our latest look at The Shallows comes directly from Sony Pictures themselves, as they've released this short, yet effective trailer through their official YouTube channel. Clocking in at only 23 seconds more than the previously mentioned trailer, this look at the summer survival film basically encapsulates what looks like the first act of the film. Blake Lively goes to the beach, prepares herself for a fun day of surfing, and eventually engages in said surfing, until a jerk of a »

The Crazy, Expensive Sequence Christopher Nolan May Be Creating For Dunkirk

8 June 2016 5:39 PM, PDT

Having concluded his Batman trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises and taken astronauts to another galaxy in Interstellar, Christopher Nolan.s next directorial, feature-length project is winding the clock back to World War II for Dunkirk. The drama has been shooting since late last month, and since this is Nolan at the helm, most of us expect big things from the movie. However, what comes as a surprise is that Nolan might not be sparing the dollars to pull off a stunt with a real World War II plane that will end in fiery glory. According to a source who spoke with Indie Revolver, Warner Bros spent $5 million to purchase a vintage World War II aircraft (the report mention it might be a German Luftwaffe) for Dunkirk that will be equipped with IMAX cameras. Once the production gets some dazzling aerial sequences from it, the plane will be crashed. We »

Star Wars 8 Features A Cape And A Cave, According To The Latest Image From Set

8 June 2016 4:16 PM, PDT

Just like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: Episode VIII has done a good job of keeping most of its plot a secret as its shooting. Fortunately, every now and then, director Rian Johnson has released images from the set teasing what’s coming in the next main Star Wars installment. He posted his latest one today that promises some exciting stuff in the upcoming movie: a cape inside of a cave. Hold for applause.   http://rcjohnso.tumblr.com/post/145623121700/in-the-home-stretch   To commemorate Star Wars: Episode VIII nearly finishing principal photography (or as he called it, the "home stretch"), Johnson posted this photo on his Tumblr page of a cape/cloak on a hanger in either a cave or right next to a cliff face near some production equipment. Okay, so this isn’t really the plot-revealing look we could have gotten, but »

The Greasy Strangler Has The Grossest, Most Nsfw Trailer You'll See This Year

8 June 2016 3:50 PM, PDT

I’ve seen quite a bit during my time writing for Cinema Blend. From TV series to feature length films, I’ve become callous to content that tries to push the envelope – or so I thought. Ladies and gentlemen, the trailer for The Greasy Strangler just hit the Internet, and it’s the grossest, weirdest, and most absurd movie trailer you will see all year. That's something I can promise you. Check out the Nsfw trailer below to see for yourself. I warned about that trailer, didn’t I? Jim Hosking’s The Greasy Strangler revolves around a father and son who both fall for the same woman during a Disco Walking tour in Los Angeles. As they begin competing for the attention of their beloved, a maniac dubbed "The Greasy Strangler" starts to stalk the streets and brutally murder innocents »

The Only Villain More Infamous Than The Joker, According To Jared Leto

8 June 2016 3:04 PM, PDT

Every hero has his or her main villain. James Bond has Blofeld, Superman has Lex Luthor, and Batman, of course, has The Joker. Over the course of the last century, the Clown Prince of Crime has become one of the most recognizable faces in all of fiction, and the acts he has committed have echoed throughout a variety of media. In fact, he’s such an iconic and evil character that Jared Leto thinks that only one other legendary villain could ever hope to surpass him.   In a recent interview with Total Film (via Digital Spy), Jared Leto explained that only one particularly notable biblical bad guy could match the iconography of The Joker. He said: The only villain who may be more infamous is the devil. The Joker is an icon, a legend, the baddest of the bad and seems to be having the most fun. »

The 11 Best Movies Of 2016 You Still Haven't Seen

8 June 2016 2:54 PM, PDT

With the year of 2016 almost at the halfway point, it.s a good time to start looking back at some of the films we may have missed this year. Seeing as the off-season is getting busier and busier with every year, more modest to wonderful hits are getting buried by those that would steal their thunder. For every Deadpool or Captain America: Civil War, there.s at least one other flick that.s not getting the love they deserve. That said, keep your eyes peeled for the following 11 flicks that are well worth your time, and just might be hitting a Redbox kiosk near you in the near future. Eddie The Eagle When a feel-good sports picture does its job, it hits you hard. This year, Eddie The Eagle did just that, as it combined an endearing Taron Egerton with a cranky Hugh Jackman, to make the most heartwarming comedy »

Batman: The Killing Joke Will Play In Movie Theaters, Find Out Where And When

8 June 2016 1:48 PM, PDT

DC Comics has been releasing a steady stream of direct-do-dvd animated movies since 2007, but arguably none of them have gotten as much publicity as the upcoming Batman: The Killing Joke. Adapting writer Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland’s 1988 graphic novel, it’s not only bringing one of the most iconic Joker tales of all time to a wider audience, but is also the first R-rated DC Universe Animated Original Movie. It was reported earlier this year that Batman: The Killing Joke will be seen ahead of time at San Diego Conic-Con next month, but now fans will also have another opportunity to see it early for one day only in theaters. It was announced earlier today that Warner Bros has partnered with Fathom Events to screen Batman: The Killing Joke on Monday, July 25 at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. in select theaters across the United States. »

The Good That Secretly Came Out Of Howard The Duck

8 June 2016 1:38 PM, PDT

Few comic book movies have attained a level of notoriety achieved by Howard the Duck. Released during the very infancy of the entire genre, the 1986 film has widely been regarded as one of the worst comic book movies ever committed to celluloid. However, not everything about the movie is a total disaster. In fact, the failure of Howard the Duck ultimately led to one actress’ involvement in a much better, more iconic movie.   During a recent interview with THR, actress Lea Thompson revealed that the failure of Howard the Duck is what ultimately drove her to take a role in the 1987 classic, Some Kind of Wonderful. She explained: I had to get on another movie. I wouldn’t have done the movie if Howard wasn’t such as bomb. … Things that seemed bad had turned out to be good in the end. It was a »

The Sequel Jerry Seinfeld Says Everyone Wants Him To Do

8 June 2016 1:23 PM, PDT

Although he’s primarily known for his iconic stand-up career as well as his legendary television series, Jerry Seinfeld has done his fair share of work in the world of film as well. Perhaps it’s not quite as prolific of a resume as someone like Eddie Murphy or Steve Martin, but he has made a name for himself as an incredibly versatile entertainer. In fact, the comedian recently came out and admitted that there’s one specific film universe that his fans want to see him return to, and it's not one we would've expected.   During a recent Reddit Ama session, Jerry Seinfeld revealed that there’s an incredible demand online for him to make a sequel to 2007’s Bee Movie: There's a fantastic energy now for some reason, on the Internet particularly. Tumblr, people brought my attention to. I »

The Big Downside To James Wan Directing Aquaman For DC

8 June 2016 12:45 PM, PDT

Quickly, name your favorite horror film from the past 10 years. What’d you say? Mine remains Insidious. Some of you might have said The Conjuring. Others might have gone with Annabelle, or one of the Saw chapters. You know who you have to thank for all of those creepy stories? James Wan. The incredibly gifted writer-director is about to deliver another masterful chiller in the form of The Conjuring 2, the continuation of Wan’s deep dive into the supernatural case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren. Only, Wan’s journey through the macabre may be coming to a close – for the time being – and that’s reason to lament. While on the promotional tour for The Conjuring 2, Wan was asked by EW if The Conjuring 3 was in the cards. It’s a natural progression, as the Warrens had numerous cases that could inspire »

Which Character Norman Reedus Would Like To Play In The McU

8 June 2016 11:38 AM, PDT

At this point, there are only two types of actors in Hollywood: those who have been offered roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe projects, and those who are about to be. As such, "Which Superhero do you want to play?" has become a fairly standard interview question for any actor or actress who isn’t already playing one. So when we saw that somebody had talked to Norman Reedus about playing a Marvel hero we didn’t think much of it. Until we saw which character he was talking about. Because no hero would make more sense to be played by the man behind Daryl Dixon than Ghost Rider. Genre fans know Norman Reedus as the crossbow wielding motorcycle riding zombie slayer from The Walking Dead. It’s a fitting character for him, in part because the actor has a true love for the bikes. As »

Anthony Hopkins And Al Pacino Made A Movie Together, And It's A Financial Disaster

8 June 2016 10:51 AM, PDT

There are good movies and great movies. There are bad movies and terrible movies. Occasionally, there are movies that are so bad that they’re still entertaining. Then, there’s Misconduct. This movie, which co-stars Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins is, by all accounts, absolutely terrible. It’s so bad that when it opened in Britain this past weekend almost nobody saw it. Like almost literally nobody. The movie only grossed $141 in three days. No, I didn’t leave out any zeroes. It’s hard to imagine how something like that can even happen. You’d think that any movie that has both Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins in it would draw a few dozen people per theater at least. Not so much. In the film’s defense, according to Variety, it only opened in five theaters in the country, but that still »

The DC Superhero Jude Law Almost Played

8 June 2016 10:21 AM, PDT

Jude Law has starred in a variety of movies over his nearly three decade-long acting career, from dramas like Cold Mountain to comedies like Spy. However, one genre he hasn.t jumped into yet is the superhero movie, but it isn.t for a lack of opportunity. Over a decade ago, he was given the chance to play Superman on the big screen, but he turned it down for a number of reasons, including wanting to wear the costume for an extended period of time. During his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, Law talked about how he was approached to play Superman "around 2004," which is about the time when Superman: Flyby, the Superman project in development before Superman Returns, was being worked on. Law was already feeling hesitant about playing the Man of Steel, but the director at the time, Brett Ratner, sent the Superman »

Warcraft Just Put Up One Of The Biggest Chinese Openings Ever

8 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT

While we.re still waiting to see Warcraft here in North America, much of the rest of world has already seen it. The film has been putting up impressive box office numbers in several overseas markets, but the second biggest movie market on the planet may have just changed the game. Warcraft didn.t just open big in China, it opened huge. With nearly $46 million dollars in its first full day of business, Warcraft had the second biggest single day in the history of the Chinese box office. While significantly behind the monster $63 million that Furious 7 did on its opening day last year, Warcraft.s numbers out do Captain America: Civil War, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and every Transformers movie. According to Forbes, Warcraft had $20 million in pre-sales leading into its opening. While we.ll have to wait and see if Warcraft has the staying power to put »

Zootopia Deleted Scene Touches On Judy And Nick's Relationship Status

8 June 2016 9:06 AM, PDT

The focus of Disney.s Zootopia is the unlikely pairing of rabbit police officer Judy Hopps and fox con man Nick Wilde. As different as the two characters are, by the end of the film they have become incredibly close. It turns out, an early version of the film included a scene that joked with the idea of the two being more than simply friends. As part of the film.s Blu-Ray release, we can now get an idea of what that would have looked like. For obvious reasons, this relationship status would have to be listed as complicated. It.s not entirely clear where in Zootopia this scene would have fallen. It obviously would have been early, as the pair are still working on the missing mammal case together, but they.ve been doing it long enough that Judy considers Nick a friend, although based on the storyboard the »

The One Thing Morgan Freeman Still Thinks Is Terrible About The Shawshank Redemption

8 June 2016 8:10 AM, PDT

As of this writing, The Shawshank Redemption is sitting atop the IMDb rankings of the most popular movies of all-time. The film is truly beloved today. However, that wasn’t always the case. While the film was critically praised upon its release, it was a commercial failure. Nobody saw it in the theaters, and most fans found it on home video or cable later. Morgan Freeman thinks that a large part of the reason the movie did so badly at first is because the title is awful. Appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Morgan Freeman says he knew that Shawshank Redemption was a great film as soon as he read the script, and that he was willing to play any role just to be in it, but if there was one thing he could have changed about it, it was the title page. The original title [of Stephen »
