Read James Gunn's Touching, Heartfelt Letter To Guardians Of The Galaxy Fans

11 hours ago

Today marks the one year anniversary of the release of Marvel.s unexpected hit Guardians of the Galaxy. While the franchise certainly expects a great turnout to its films, no one was expecting the critical acclaim and international popularity that came with the intergalactic story of a ragtag group of misfits. Here at Cinema Blend, we even ranked the film #1 on our list of every Marvel film through Phase 2. And no one is more proud, and thankful for his movie.s success than the director himself, James Gunn. To mark the movie.s anniversary, Gunn wrote a touching letter to his fans, and it.s truly something of beauty. Get your tissues ready, this is definitely a tearjerker.  (function(d, s, id) {  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;  js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;  js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml »

Channing Tatum Officially Closes Deal As Gambit

13 hours ago

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over. Unless you.re not a Channing Tatum fan, in that case, it.s just getting started. For the last couple of years Tatum has been pushing hard to make a Gambit movie happen, with himself in the role of the cajun mutant. Then, this past week there was a media explosion over reports that he was on his way off the project. We can now report that not only is Tatum still involved, his deal is closed. Channing Tatum will be Gambit. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Tatum is now officially on board as Gambit, the other character who was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine that really needed to get his own movie. What.s more, according to the report, the recent rumors that Tatum had left the project were entirely untrue. While there were negotiations ongoing which had apparently »

The Crow Reboot Is Having Even More Problems

14 hours ago

Poor Eric Draven, first he and his girlfriend are murdered, now the poor guy keeps having problems getting his franchise rebooted. Dude can.t catch a break. The attempt to reboot The Crow has a new problem to add to its growing list. Most of the film.s production team just walked off the job. The Hollywood Reporter has the story about everybody leaving the project. It.s all fallout from the recently announced bankruptcy of Relativity Media. Bankruptcy doesn.t close the doors and so Relativity is apparently still working toward going into production this fall. That could be difficult however, as the rights to a valuable property like The Crow are just the sort of thing that judges like to force you to sell as part of bankruptcy settlements. Of course, the other problem with going into production on The Crow is that they are still short The »

Every Great Mission: Impossible Mask Rip From Mi:i-iv In One Video

15 hours ago

Masks! The Mission: Impossible movies tend to use those, some more than others. Not knowing if and when we'll see someone peel their face off has become part of the suspense of the action films, which is why we've compiled this supercut of the mask-rips featured in the first four Mission: Impossible films. Major Spoilers from Mi:i-iv ahead! The video comes to us courtesy of CinemaBlend's own Jeff McCobb, who combed the first four Mission: Impossible films to compile this supercut of all of their great mask-ripping moments. As we warned, the above video is riddled with spoilers (and so is this article, and possibly the comments!), as a few of the mask-rips featured in the first three Mission: Impossible movies -- and the fact that Ghost Protocol seemed to have more references to masks than it did uses of -- come as a surprise. Just when you think »

Why Bill & Ted 3 Will Be Even Funnier, According To Alex Winter

16 hours ago

Some actors have a fear of being typecast. Locked into a role they played that seems to have defined them forever. Luckily for Alex Winter, forever being Bill S. Preston Esq. of the Bill & Ted movies isn.t a problem for him. He.s actually really looking forward to having a chance to play the role again. He says the fact that it.s been more than 25 years since the first film is what.s going to make the third film great. Speaking with The Next Web, Winter says that although he is older, Bill is not, and that.s the joke: It.s exciting to come back to the characters. The fun thing about them is that they.re ageless. You play them in terms of who they are spiritually. Their mannerism and physicality are not tied to age. We played them like 9-year-old kids. They still have that »

Regal Rejects Plan For Quicker VOD Release, Calls It Unhealthy

31 July 2015 10:33 PM, PDT

With Paramount Pictures and AMC Theaters  looking to begin experimenting with a much shorter than usual window between theatrical and VOD releases, there's been a surprising groundswell of support for the idea that could be seen as a threat to theatrical releasing as we know it. Up until this moment, there have been no real opponents to have spoken out against this somewhat revolutionary idea. But, as with any attempt at changing the way things are done, a challenger has appeared in the form of the competition. In this case, that competitor is none other than major theater chain Regal Cinemas. The Hollywood Reporter picked up on some remarks made by Regal's CEO, Amy Miles, who has finally outed herself as a detractor to the fairly recent business model that's set to kick in with Paramount's future theatrical releases of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension and Scout's Guide To The »

Fletch Reboot Finds New Life As Relativity Closes

31 July 2015 9:01 PM, PDT

Some reboots are destined to fail, while others manage to make a name for themselves in no time flat. And then there are those reboots that seem destined to spend their lives in limbo, transferring from studio to studio, waiting to either happen or not. One of the most infamous examples of a franchise in serious limbo is Fletch, which has transferred from Miramax to Warner Bros, and most recently to Relativity. With their impending bankruptcy forcing their hand, the studio is shuffling their deck and looking for a partner to help them play the Fletch card once and for all. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, a new Fletch film could be part of a potential deal that would keep Relativity active through corporate restructuring and the recruitment of some new investing blood. The plan so far is to keep Masterminds and Kidnap on the studio's »

Alamo Drafthouse's Latest 'Don't Talk' Ad Brings Back A Beloved On-Screen Coach

31 July 2015 8:07 PM, PDT

In the modern age of movie-going, there are more distractions than ever when it comes to enjoying a night in front of the silver screen. Spearheading the efforts to be polite, but firm, with ever aggressive audiences is the Alamo Drafthouse, and for their latest spot they've chosen a man that embodies both of those qualities and then some. Prepare to be inspired below: You can thank the fine folks at the Drafthouse for bringing back Kyle Chandler's dedicated Coach Eric Taylor for this extremely important message. Though with Friday Night Lights being off the air for four years, that's probably part of the reason the extremely rude audience weren't paying attention to Coach's emotional brilliance. The other part being, of course, that their cell phones and other electronic devices were making it too damned noisy to hear the speech that probably contained some sort of important lesson of »

A Doctor Who Movie? Why You Shouldn't Hold Your Breath

31 July 2015 7:43 PM, PDT

The venerable science fiction adventure series Doctor Who has been plugging away on the BBC for more than five decades at this point. While there are hundreds of episodes of television for devoted fans to pore over again and again, Whovians have often wondered about the possibility of a feature film addition to the canon. There.s a simple answer to that question, don.t hold your breath. At the Television Critics Associate summer press tour, writer, producer, and showrunner Steven Moffat talked to Entertainment Weekly about a variety of topics. Subjects included the role Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams plays next season, how long current Doctor Peter Capaldi will be around, and the movie question. When this came up, Moffat responded: What are we going to do, shut down for a year and make a movie? Does everybody want that? You.d rather a movie than a whole »

31 July 2015 6:29 PM, PDT

The Star Wars universe is expanding in a big, big way. In addition to the Episode films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re getting a series of standalone Anthology movies, starting with Gareth EdwardsStar Wars: Rogue One. Production on that chapter in the history of that far, far away galaxy is getting ready to commence, and we don’t know much except that Felicity Jones is going to be the female lead. A new report, however, may have some details about her character. There are big potential spoilers beyond this point, you’ve been warned. Also, this is a very soft rumor, so make of it what you will.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 Is Not Dead Yet

31 July 2015 5:19 PM, PDT

We haven't seen detective Axel Foley on the big screen for more than 20 years, not since 1994's Beverly Hills Cop 3. Almost the entire time after that there have been reports that Beverly Hills Cop 4 could actually happen. And as we live and breathe, here in 2015, the project is still not dead, at least according to Brett Ratner. Pumping the National Geographic Channel series Breakthrough, where he directed one episode, Ratner appeared at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Slashfilm caught up with the multi-hyphenate writer-director-producer, and one of the things they talked to him about was Beverly Hills Cop 4. He confirmed that this is indeed still in the works, and when asked about where they're at, he said: Working on the script, working on the script. It's a longer process. It's not easy. A lot of pressure on that one In addition to »

More Evil Dead Movies? Bruce Campbell Just Said This

31 July 2015 4:32 PM, PDT

Fans of the Sam Raimi-directed, Bruce Campbell-starring Evil Dead series are some of the most rabid and devoted there are, and they.re pretty stoked at the prospect of the upcoming Ash vs. Evil Dead on Starz. As awesome as that is, however, they.re still clamoring for more movies, a possibility that Campbell didn.t rule out. The most famous chin in the business took to the stage at the Television Critics Association summer press tour to chat up Ash vs. Evil Dead. Deadline caught his panel, and discussing the future of the franchise he said: This series will force us to make more movies. That.s only 10 hours of programming; we need eight more movies. Making a fourth movie would work. No matter what we give them [the fans], it will never be enough. He.s obviously mostly kidding around, joking about how fanatical the devotees of the »

Watch a Filthy, Nsfw And Hilarious Montage Of Deleted Trainwreck Jokes

31 July 2015 3:48 PM, PDT

It’s the weekend, so it’s time to kick back, relax, and laugh. Even if you’ve already seen the hilarious Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck, you haven’t seen this. We’ve got a collection of jokes and bloopers that didn’t make it into the film, and as with the movie itself, these are seriously Nsfw, so consider yourself warned. While we knew that Schumer wrote the movie, we had no idea how much she came up with on the spot. The collection of jokes shows how much improvisation was encouraged in making the movie. The first 25 seconds of the clip is the same scene, a dozen times over, with different one-liners from Schumer each time. Director Judd Apatow is known for promoting improv in his films, and this montage shows that Schumer, Bill Hader, and even Lebron James really got into »

Pixar's The Incredibles Ripped To Shreds In A Vicious New Video

31 July 2015 2:51 PM, PDT

Ever since the first Toy Story in 1995, Pixar has been responsible for creating some of the most popular, acclaimed, beloved animated features in recent memory. But as adored as they are, that doesn.t mean people don.t find fault with them, and the latest "Everything Wrong With" video takes 2004.s family superhero adventure The Incredibles to task in this vicious new installment. As is usually the case with these videos from Cinema Sins, what you get here is a mixed bag. Some of the points they make funny and legit, like how they argue that the family in The Incredibles have essentially the same powers as the characters in the Fantastic Four, with a miniature Flash hanging around for good measure. They also point out that the two of the heroes rescuing people from a burning building use the victims as shields, with doesn.t seem particularly heroic. And »

Who Scoot McNairy Is Probably Playing In Batman V Superman

31 July 2015 2:16 PM, PDT

The past week has been rife with casting revelations for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On Tuesday, DC Comics confirmed that Tao Okamoto is playing Lex Luthor.s right-hand woman Mercy Graves. This was followed by reports of Callan Mulvey and Jena Malone and playing Anatoli Knyazev (a.k.a. KGBeast) and Barbara Gordon (a.k.a. Batgirl/Oracle), respectively. Now the latest bit of information may have identified the mysterious role that Halt and Catch Fire star Scoot McNairy has been attached to: Jimmy Olsen. It was rumored last year that McNairy would be playing a different version of the Daily Planet.s photographer, and today Heroic Hollywood said that their sources have told them the same thing. According to the article, this version of Jimmy was in Metropolis during the battle between Superman and Zod, and his legs were crushed by falling rubble. That would explain the »

How The Spider-Man Writers Are Covering Their Bases In The Marvel Universe

31 July 2015 1:10 PM, PDT

Part of me feels bad for John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. The two wrote the new Vacation movie (in theaters as we speak), and have spent the week trying to promote it to local and national media. Yet, all anyone wants to talk about is their next gig, writing the solo Spider-Man movie for Marvel. Pardon us, ever so slightly, for also jumping into the fray. Daley and Goldstein opened up to Vulture about their approach to Spider-Man, repeating a number of talking points that many involved with the project have already said: Peter Parker will be in high school in this new movie; he.ll be a geeky outcast; we won.t have to endure the origin story again, etc. But when you combed through their Spidey speak looking for interesting nuggets, you realize how much work is going into connecting this Untitled Spider-Man movie to the pre-existing »

Rush Hour 4 A Possibility If This Happens

31 July 2015 12:50 PM, PDT

The cross-cultural comedy team up Rush Hour spawned three movies, though there hasn.t been one since 2007.s Rush Hour 3. In the ensuing years there have been sporadic rumblings that Rush Hour 4 could be in the works, and though he doesn.t rule out the possibility, director Brett Ratner says there is one key thing standing in the way: time. Ratner was at the Television Critics Association summer press tour to promote the National Geographic series Breakthrough, on which he directed an episode. When Slashfilm had the opportunity to catch up with the filmmaker, they asked about Rush Hour 4 he said: We.re always talking about it. We.ve just got to find the time between Chris Tucker, myself, and Jackie. If you.re familiar with the franchise, you are well aware that by "Jackie," Ratner means legendary martial artist Jackie Chan. And if you didn.t know that, »

X-Men: Apocalypse Is Definitely Giving Us Archangel, Take A Peek Here

31 July 2015 12:44 PM, PDT

One of the young mutants included in X-Men: Apocalypse.s gigantic cast is Warren Worthington III, a.k.a. Angel, played by Ben Hardy. Last seen in a minor capacity in 2006.s X-Men: The Last Stand, it.s been reported that this new version we.ll see is "not very nice." This has prompted speculation about whether he will become Archangel, and after months of the cast and crew playing coy with fans, it.s been confirmed, Warren will indeed rock the moniker in the 2016 blockbuster. On Thursday, director Bryan Singer posted this image of himself on Instagram having some fund behind the scenes. The picture may look Angel-y a first, but if you read the caption, you.ll see the hashtag #archangel. Singer.s air guitar instrument also looks like it could be one of Archangel.s metallic feather blades, though I.m just spitballing here. Check it out. »

Crispin Glover's Still Angry About Back To The Future, Read His Angry Words Here

31 July 2015 12:13 PM, PDT

Crispin Glover has a rough history with Back to the Future. While he will live forever in the memory of a certain generation simply for playing the role of George McFly in the original film, his ongoing issues with making the movie is a story that lives in infamy. Turns out he’s still angry about the whole thing. Really Angry. In an interview with The Guardian, Glover doesn’t hold anything back when talking about problems he had with the movie and writer/producer Bob Gale: Me asking the questions that I asked [about the film’s ending] infuriated [the film-makers], and they were angry and they wanted to do something that was cruel, which they accomplished. Bob Gale then specifically lied, and said false things about me. Glover is so angry about the situation that he is apparently writing a book about propaganda in »

Wait, Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 Is Still Sony's Highest Grossing Movie Of The Year?

31 July 2015 11:17 AM, PDT

It.s been a bad summer for Sony Pictures. Ok, it.s been a bad year for Sony Pictures. Not only has the studio gone without a breakout hit all year, but most of their films actually classify as misses. With apologies to Kevin James, when the highlight of your year is Paul Blart, you.re not having a very good year. The Hollywood Reporter has the story about the rough year that Sony has been having. Former studio co-chair Amy Pascal apparently predicted the lack of breakout hits in an e-mail. An interesting coincidence considering the Sony hack which lead to the e-mail.s release went a long way to her losing the position. Still, she wasn.t wrong. While every other major studio has at least one film that has grossed $300 million, Sony.s strongest performer thus far is the aforementioned Mall Cop sequel which has grossed barely »
