The Force Awakens Apparently Syncs Perfectly With Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon

16 hours ago

Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side Of The Moon is arguably one of the best rock albums of all time. In addition to the transformative and alternative nature of the album itself, Dark Side is also known for having a strange connection to the world of film. It was discovered decades ago that playing the album whilst watching The Wizard of Oz would result in 40 minutes of perfectly synced and eerily appropriate coincidence. Well, it appears that this is also the case for the latest film in the Star Wars saga.  A reddit user called knnl somehow got his hands on a home copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and noticed a ton of crazy coincidences when experimenting with playing Dark Side Of The Moon. You apparently have to start the album after the famous Star Wars crawl, where the First Order’s shuttles fly over »

Deadpool Is Killing It At The Box Office, Get The Details

18 hours ago

Remember when Fox completely fucked up the character of Wade Wilson a.k.a Deadpool almost a decade ago? No? Yeah me neither, that.s because Deadpool has just hit theaters and completely washed the foul taste of X-Men Origins: Wolverine out of my mouth. Tim Miller.s Deadpool has become a complete hit for Fox and Ryan Reynolds, far surpassing anyone.s expectations. Despite the film.s relatively obscure hero and hard R-rating, it has become pretty much a smash box office success overnight. Not only is the movie on track to earn an insane profit . like Deadpool level insane . it also as already shattered box office records.   A new report from THR indicates that Deadpool opened to an incredible $47 million on Friday, and is currently on track for a three-day gross of $117 million.

New Ninja Turtles Trailer Shows A Funnier Tone

19 hours ago

Y’all got jokes, huh? With that one line we now know exactly what we're in for; if there’s one thing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have become known for over the years, it’s their ability to crack a great joke while battling evil. Sadly, some of their more recent movies have disregarded that idea in favor of framing them as somber heroes stricken by their feelings as outsiders. Luckily for all of us longtime fans of the adolescent reptiles, all evidence points to the notion that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows aims to bring the team of superheroes back to their comedic roots. Check out the latest trailer for the film and prepare to chuckle. Set to the music of The Beastie Boys "No Sleep Till Brooklyn," the trailer follows the Ninja Turtles as New York City »

The Modern Trailer For Princess Bride Is Epic And Dark

19 hours ago

If you.re in the mood for a classic adventure full of love, laughs, and medievel action, then there really isn.t a better option than The Princess Bride. Over the last three decades, Rob Reiner.s classic fantasy tale has endeared audiences of all ages with its balance of whimsical comedy and action. However, what if The Princess Bride fell into the hands of a different director, one who decided to play the action and drama completely straight? As it turns out: it would have been pretty cool. Check it the fan made trailer below to see the classic adventure filtered through a modern, dark lens. The updated trailer takes all of the humorous charm and wit of The Princess Bride and completely jettisons it. However, in its place the creator of the modern trailer has injected new levels of tension and drama previously unseen in the Rob Reiner »

Watch Deadpool Hilariously Save A Cat In A Tree

20 hours ago

The Merc with the Mouth is undoubtedly super, but always seems to deny any and all assertions of his status as a hero. Based upon everything we have seen Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) do lately we have to wholeheartedly disagree. He’s the absurdly violent, vulgar, and all-around badass hero we didn’t even know we needed. No job seems too small for psychotic pop culture enthusiast Wade Wilson; even with the release of Deadpool this weekend he still finds time to help save cats rescued in trees. Check out the video below to get a better sense of what I mean. Opening on a young woman who has lost her cat up a tree, the video shows Deadpool – who must have just been strolling along the sidewalk – deciding to offer up his assistance. Despite his earnest disdain for felines (somthing heavily alluded to in the film), »

New Batman V Superman Image Shows A Dark Side Of Superman

20 hours ago

Beyond their war of batarangs, kicks, and general fisticuffs, Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) will soon go to war over ideology. The long-awaited Man of Steel follow-up Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will mark the first ever meeting of the two DC titans on the silver screen, and they aren’t exactly going to get along at first. A new image has just hit the web that seemingly sides with Batman’s notion that Superman cannot be trusted. Check it out below. False God? #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/XJjnuXL5FU — Batman v Superman (@BatmanvSuperman) February 13, 2016 As you can see from the photo – which was posted to the official Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Twitter account – the image showcases the Superman statue we’ve consistently seen since the first teaser for the film came out less than a year ago.

Batman V Superman: Why DC's Movie Universe May Be In Trouble

12 February 2016 5:21 PM, PST

If you needed any proof of how excited people are for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the response to the final trailer that dropped the other day should drive that point home. People got rather psyched, and with good reason.that early sequence where Bats thrashes all those dudes in the warehouse is awesome. It.s likely going to make a ton of money, but according to a new rumor, things might not be all sunshine and lollipops behind the scenes for DC and Warner Bros., and there might be some big changes to DC.s cinematic slate in store. This is, of course, unsubstantiated rumor from unnamed sources, and you should treat it as such, but it.s an interesting proposition to consider. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is a mouthful of a title, is intended to be the jumping off point for the DC Extended »

Deadpool's Best Easter Eggs And Pop Culture References

12 February 2016 4:47 PM, PST

We knew we were in for a very different superhero movie when Deadpool finally made it to the big screen. We knew it would be violent and vulgar and that Deadpool would break the fourth wall, but the first solo movie from the Merc with the Mouth doesn.t just break the fourth wall, it beats the fourth wall to death in a back alley and steals its wallet. Deadpool makes more pop culture references than we could count, but we did our best and made a list of every easter egg, in-joke, and reference that the movie dishes out. They came so fast that we may have missed a few, and if we listed every last one we.ll be here all week, but we broke them down into their basic categories and we.ll touch on our favorites. Let us know your favorite ones in the comments on »

12 February 2016 4:45 PM, PST

Over the better part of the last three decades The Simpsons have become a cultural institution in their own right, and we have loved every minute of it. The show’s iconography seriously cannot be understated, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t poked their fair share of fun at numerous silver screen icons during their time on the air. A brand new supercut has just hit the web showcasing a ton of The Simpsons’ amazing homages to legendary movies over the years, check it out below.   As you can see from the video above, The Simpsons have long maintained a firm finger on the pulse of modern pop culture.

How Jesse Eisenberg Changed Lex Luthor For Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

12 February 2016 2:49 PM, PST

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s that this isn’t the old school version. Over the past year, Eisenberg has said how his Luthor is not cartoonish, but instead feels more like a real person, thus being much different than the previous cinematic versions. Now Eisenberg has gone into more detail about Luthor’s motivations in the March blockbuster and the character’s twisted moral outlook. While reaffirming how this Lex Luthor is a more modern version of the character, Jesse Eisenberg explained to Playboy that the young businessman’s main worry in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is having someone flying around with so much power at his dispoal. As Eisenberg put it: The character is in line with what audiences want to »

8 Long-Delayed Sequels We Are Dying To See

12 February 2016 2:45 PM, PST

Waiting for you at the theater this weekend is Zoolander 2, which finally hits screens after a 15-year layoff. While early reviews of this latest adventure of really, really, ridiculously good-looking people haven.t been particularly kind, but it.s not the only long-gestating sequel that is coming down the pipeline, not by a long shot. Long delays between sequels are nothing new, and while sometimes they don.t work out, other times they do. There were quite a few last year that lived up to their predecessors, especially the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road and Creed, and we.d much rather filmmakers take the time to get things right rather than simply serve us a half-baked follow up. Considering that, here are some upcoming sequels that have been on the way for years and years that we have high hopes for. There are, of course, tons more of »

Melissa McCarthy's The Boss Red-Band Trailer Is Foul-Mouthed And Nsfw

12 February 2016 2:30 PM, PST

Melissa McCarthy’s 2016 is not just all about the Ghostbusters reboot. Sure, that’s going to take up a big part of her summer, but she’s also got the release of The Boss to deal with. In fact, as The Boss’ co-writer and star, she probably has a more vested interest in the comedy. Good thing it looks downright hilarious then, with the below red-band trailer proving once and for all that Melissa McCarthy is the current queen of foul-mouthed comedy. There’s an awful lot to appreciate about The Boss’ profanity-filled, R-rated trailer. First and foremost is that Michelle Darnell looks as though she’s the sort of character that Melissa McCarthy knows how to play perfectly for laughs. Not only is she arrogant and rude, but she’s also driven, has a point to prove, and possesses an acidic »

Transformers 6 Plans To Try Something Totally Different

12 February 2016 1:51 PM, PST

The Transformers franchise needs a shakeup. And by most accounts, that’s what’s happening. We’ve covered the Writers Room mentality employed by Paramount to try and inject creativity into the stagnant series, which has in turn led to the announcement of the next three Transformers movies. But they might not be a standalone trilogy, as you’d automatically assume. We hear Transformers 6 might be very different. Following Transformers: Age of Extinction, the Transformers films appeared to be in limbo. The movie made a fortune (as these movies tend to do), but the story laid out in Extinction didn’t really hook anyone. We know that Michael Bay is coming back to direct Transformers 5, but the sixth movie in the franchise, according to Hasbro (via MovieWeb) is going to be a spinoff movie focused on Bumblebee. In a release issued during the annual Hasbro »

Vin Diesel's XXX 3 Just Lost One Of Its Major Villains

12 February 2016 1:21 PM, PST

Vin Diesel has provided an update on the third instalment to the XXX franchise. Unfortunately, it.s not the best of news though, as it.s been revealed that Jet Li has left the production. But, before this departure could sink XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage into anything close to a crisis, it was confirmed that Donnie Yen has replaced Li, which isn't the worst trade off. Rather mysteriously though, sources close to Twitch Film revealed that Jet Li left the project for undisclosed reasons. But with the martial arts superstar off the production, there was now a gaping hole for Vin Diesel and company to fill. And The Last Witch Hunter actor didn.t miss a beat in casting Donnie Yen as Jet Li.s replacement. Diesel also took to Facebook to show an image of himself, Donnie Yen, and director D.J. Caruso working on a scene. ( »

Ryan Reynolds Ranks His Green Lantern Movie, On A Scale Of 1 To 10

12 February 2016 1:08 PM, PST

With Deadpol currently in theaters and already doing a bang up job making a nice bit of money, Ryan Reynolds. career as a superhero looks to finally be on the right track. In the not too distant past, though, it seemed like the actor would never get another shot at any super-powered character ever. Between his ill-conceived appearance as some weird, sorta Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the huge failure of his outing in Green Lantern it looked to be out of the cards for him. And, recently, Reynolds admitted that his Green Lantern movie did, in fact, leave a lot to be desired. I would give it a scant... 4? Yeah, 3 or 4? One! It's A One! There.s nothing like an actor being honest about failed filmic efforts, even if they do come years after the fact. Ryan Reynolds appeared on Bravo.s Watch What Happens Live and responded »

12 February 2016 11:39 AM, PST

To most people, the Guardians of the Galaxy are made up of five people: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket. However, as hardcore comic book fans will tell you, there have been other characters who have been on the team, from unknowns like Moondragon to famous heroes like Iron Man and The Thing. It.s been mentioned before that the line-up will expand in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and now it.s confirmed at least one new member will be added to the 2017 blockbuster. During his recent Facebook video Q&A, director James Gunn praised one of the actresses who joined the sequel, and while complimenting her, mentioned that she.ll be the new Guardian.

How Many F-Bombs Deadpool Has In It

12 February 2016 11:21 AM, PST

It’s a good thing that Deadpool was given the R-rating that it craved so badly. Because this freedom gave the Ryan Reynolds led comic-book adaptation a chance to not only create some pretty graphic and gory fight sequences, but it also allowed the superhero adaptation to be littered with a mountain of profanity too. In fact it’s now been revealed that there are 84 uses of the f-word in Deadpool.  The good folks over at Kids In Mind, who like to keep an eye on films’ use of such vulgarity, sat down to watch Deadpool and count each and every use of the word “fuck.” Obviously they didn’t stop there though. Because they also made an extensive list of the other uses of profanity in the eagerly anticipated adaptation of the beloved comic-book character. And while the film’s use »

Zoolander 2 Is So Bad, A Famous Film Critic Bailed Mid-Screening

12 February 2016 11:12 AM, PST

Is there more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking? For Derek Zoolander there isn.t, but for those of us who appreciate good cinema, there totally is. Zoolander 2 hits theaters this weekend, and Ben Stiller's long-awaited male model comedy sequel hasn.t exactly received glowing reviews from those who have seen it. One such reviewer is legendary film critic Leonard Maltin, who deemed the film completely unworthy of his time . about halfway through watching it.   Indiewire has just released an article written by Maltin explaining why he felt compelled to walk out of his Zoolander 2 screening after merely an hour in the theater. He explains: The film was stupid right from the start. I told myself that I was wasting my time for no good reason. Still, I stayed. . Mind you, I thought the original Zoolander was pretty funny. I had no reason to »

Watch Robert Downey Jr. Make A Sick, Young Marvel Fan's Dream Come True

12 February 2016 10:29 AM, PST

Even when he’s not playing Iron Man on the big screen, Robert Downey Jr. still plays superhero on occasion in real life. Using his fame for good, he’s helped out several charitable organizations, but also brightened up the day of a few young Iron Man fans going through tough times. Most recently, the Marvel star recorded a special message for 9-year-old Domenic, who has cystic fibrosis and just got to spend a day as his own superhero, Iron Boy. Take a look! We didn't think the day could get any better for #IronBoyAU, then he got this message: @MarvelAUNZ @RobertDowneyJrhttps://t.co/B4pndSIeTr — Make-a-WishAustralia (@MakeAWishAust) February 11, 2016   Working with the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Downey made Domenic an honorary Avenger as Tony Stark, attributing his sunglasses and lack of beard to staying discreet after the recent Civil War.

Bad Boys 3 Teases Its Villain, And A Replacement For Michael Bay

12 February 2016 10:19 AM, PST

Sit back, relax, and cue the damn Cops theme song. After years of rumors we finally have confirmation: the Bad Boys franchise will soon return and blast its way back into theaters. With Martin Lawrence and Will Smith both on board to return to the iconic action franchise for Bad Boys 3, we feel safe in saying that we couldn.t be more excited for them to deliver laughs and chaos in spades. Screenwriter Joe Carnahan just let a few new details slip regarding the some of the film's finer details, though. Check them out below.   ...who is this man? ...and how bad is he? #BadBoys3 pic.twitter.com/3i3a5bCEwJ .
