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

6 hours ago

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

6 hours ago

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 »

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

8 hours ago

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

8 hours ago

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

9 hours ago

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

9 hours ago

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

10 hours ago

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

10 hours ago

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 »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Will Have At Least One New Team Member, Here's What We Know

11 hours ago

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. He said: We have a new cast member playing a new member of the Guardians of the Galaxy and she was the most awesome and easiest person I.ve ever had to »

How Many F-Bombs Deadpool Has In It

12 hours ago

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 hours ago

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

13 hours ago

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. Downey gave the kind words after Domenic& »

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

13 hours ago

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 .

The Kylo Ren And Han Solo Memes Are Even Better Than You'd Guess

13 hours ago

Nobody is having more fun with Star Wars: The Force Awakens than social media. At this point, pretty much every character in the film has his or her own high-profile Twitter account. One of the first was the Emo Kylo Ren account, which sets up the leader of the Knights of Ren as an emo millennial who.s dark and brooding and hates his family, in the same way an angry teenager does. Now a new series of memes has taken this idea to the next level, giving us an idea what it was like in the Solo household before Ben murdered everybody and left town. http://mamalaz.tumblr.com/post/139060736897/the-modern-adventures-of-han-and-ben-kylo-manip By taking clips of Harrison Ford and Adam Driver in other movies, and putting them together with new dialogue, we get the distinct impression that Han Solo was really glad when Ben finally left town, because raising him »

Emily Blunt Will Bring This Beloved Toy To The Big Screen

14 hours ago

In Hollywood’s continued efforts to mine every property ever for a movie franchise, kid’s toys (and the 30-minute commercials called cartoons that were created in the 1980’s to sell them) became another source of success following Michael Bay’s Transformers. Since then we’ve seen G.I. Joe see some reasonable success and Jem and the Holograms fail miserably. Now, My Little Pony, which has already seen an amazing level of success back on TV, is working it’s way to the big screen as well. And it seems they just added a major name to the voice cast: Emily Blunt. Emily Blunt joins Kristin Chenoweth, Tara Strong, and others to the cast of the planned animated film. While the movie is coming from much of the same team that created the TV series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,  »

How Many More Transformers Movies We Expect To Get

15 hours ago

While each new Transformers causes critics to grind their teeth and hide behind their sofas, movie fans can.t seem to get enough. The four films currently in the franchise have made nearly $1 billion a piece. We already knew there was going to be a Transformers 5 but get ready for even more giant robot action, as Paramount just announced release dates for numbers six and seven, as well. According to the studio, the next three Transformers films will be released at a rate of one per year beginning in 2017. Transformers 5, which had originally been planned as a 2016 release, is now set to break on June 23, 2017. Transformers 6 will hit June 8, 2018, and Transformers 7 will follow on June 28, 2019. While you would think that planning that far out would be a safe bet, the current Hollywood landscape practically requires studios to plan this far out. As it stands, Transformers 5 will be opening on the »

How Much Nudity Fifty Shades Darker Needs To Have, According To Dakota Johnson

16 hours ago

Dakota Johnson went from near unknown to near household name after starring in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. While the movie was eviscerated by critics, it was embraced by fans (embraced, and then tied to the bed, likely). The novel the film was based on had two sequels and so the plan is for the movies to follow suit. This means we.ll be seeing much more of Dakota Johnson once again, although if she has anything to say about, she won.t be the only one you see. If Dakota Johnson has her way, her co-star Jamie Dornan will be giving us the full monty in next year.s planned Fifty Shades Darker. In an appearance on Bravo.s Watch What Happens Live alongside her How to be Single co-stars Leslie Mann and Alison Brie, Johnson was asked if she thought it was fair that we »

What Movies Does James Franco Regret Doing?

11 February 2016 10:02 PM, PST

Regret and mystery are two things that Hollywood are full of, and a lot of times you'll find the two factors intertwined like lovers in a passionate embrace. James Franco knows this, because he's taken both and woven them into a bit of a puzzle relating to some films he doesn't exactly see eye to eye with. While promoting his role in the limited series 11/22/63, James Franco chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about how he fell in love with the time travel thriller, as well as if he'd use the legendary plot device to change anything about his own life. It was with that challenge that he laid down the following vague statement about his earlier film career: When I was younger, I did a series of movies that I really didn.t like. I worked really hard on them, but they weren.t movies that I cared about. And »
