Ruin Your Day With Netflix's Addictive Spoiler Roulette

7 hours ago

Spoilers. They're one of the most hotly debated and yet heavily sought after commodities on the internet today. Some things you want to see for yourself, others you really don't care if someone spoils. The line between these two camps of knowledge is an enticing one, because spoilers are truth, and as humans (and movie lovers) we always seek truth to those questions we so desperately want to know the answers to. Netflix understands this and though they've warned us of spoiler etiquettein the past, they're back to test and tempt out human needs for spoilers. In fact, Netflix has created an entire site dedicated to the classification, dissemination, and temptation of spoilers. A particularly interesting section of the site is a feature entitled as Spoil Yourself. In this feature, you're given access to the typical red button that usually set off a nuclear warhead or sets a building's defense »

Se7en.s John Doe Was First Offered To This Oscar Nominee

8 hours ago

Kevin Spacey plays an incredibly important role in two of the best twist endings in modern filmmaking. In Bryan Singer's thriller The Usual Suspects he transforms in an instant from the limping Verbal Kint to the ultra-smooth Keyzer Soze, and in David Fincher's Se7en he's revealed as being the psychotic, bible-influenced serial killer known only as John Doe (who also, we learn, has cut off Gwyneth Paltrow's head). Spacey plays both parts completely effortlessly and brilliantly, and there's little question that the moments are memorable in large part because of his performances. But did you know that it was almost someone else in the latter role? With his new film Gone Girl set to hit theaters soon, director David Fincher recently took part in a BAFTA event, and during the proceedings he revealed that the John Doe role in Se7en was almost played by Ned Beatty.

William Shatner May Be In Star Trek 3, Here.s What He.d Do

8 hours ago

It would seem that William Shatner is finally in line to appear in Star Trek 3, as it has been reported that Roberto Orci has written a cameo for the original James Tiberius Kirk. The only question is whether or not Shatner will actually take it. According to Badass Digest, the scene in question is the kind that Trekkies across the world will salivate and faint over, as it will reteam Shatner with Leonard Nimoy and the duo will get to portray Kirk and Spock for the first time since 1991.s Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Reporter David Faraci even declared that his potential "appearance is plot-driven and integral enough that it might just survive any future revisions." Ever since Jj Abrams. 2009 reboot of the sci-fi series, Shatner has made it his mission to inform everyone he comes into contact with that he pines to be a part of »

The Mighty Ducks Reunited And Formed The Flying V

9 hours ago

There was a Mighty Ducks reunion over the weekend to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of D2: The Mighty Ducks. But don.t worry if you.re instantly feeling depressed because you weren.t there to mark the occasion, because the cast has bombarded the internet with pictures to document their reconciliation. The posse even took it upon themselves to recreate their infamous Flying V formation from the films, but rather than standing on an ice-rink for the picture they used a tennis court instead. Despite this minor discrepancy it.s hard not to feel nostalgic looking at the group together again. But the fun didn.t stop there! The cast rallied together for numerous photographs as the afternoon wore on. Perhaps the most impressive of the batch transformation-wise was the thinned down Shaun Weiss, who infamously portrayed the rather portly goalkeeper Greg Goldberg in the franchise. You »

This Spider-Man Side Character Could Be Very Important Moving Forward

10 hours ago

Hollywood has finally begun to hear fans' requests for a female-led superhero movie, and now the major studios are starting to seriously look in that direction. There's been talks of Warner Bros. having a Wonder Woman solo film in the works; Marvel Studios has been toying around with doing a Ms./Captain Marvel project, and there's even been some talk of a Mystique-fronted X-Men spin-off at 20th Century Fox. This past summer we saw Sony enter the game as well, announcing a female-led Amazing Spider-Man-related feature for 2017, but it's still not clear exactly where they're planning on going with it. Today, however, arrives some evidence suggesting a direction that they may wind up taking. ComicBook.com has the scoop that Marvel Comics has registered a trademark for the female Spider-Man character Silk, suggesting that she may soon become a much more significant character on the page and, potentially in the »

Doctor Strange.s Cloak Will Almost Certainly Play A Key Role In Doctor Strange

11 hours ago

The Incredibles' Edna Mode certainly had a chip on her shoulder about superheroes wearing capes, but she never said anything about cloaks - and nobody rocks a cloak quite like Doctor Strange. The Master of the Mystic Arts' look just isn't complete without his high-collared garment, which not only has the benefit of looking badass but also gives the hero the ability to levitate. We had little doubt that this important aspect of Doctor Strange's costume would make its way into the Marvel Studios film that has been programmed to come out in summer 2016, but now it appears we have found some bizarre confirmation. ComicBook.com and Stitch Kingdom have uncovered two new interesting URL purchases by Marvel that seem to hint at the upcoming Doctor Strange film, including LevitationCloak.com and SorcerorSupreme.net - the latter being a reference to one of Doctor Strange's many nicknames.

Bryan Singer Will Definitely Direct X-Men: Apocalypse Despite Legal Problems

13 hours ago

When it comes to making X-Men movies, nobody on Earth has the clout of Bryan Singer. He was the man put in charge of the direction of the franchise when it began all the way back in 2000; he made one of the best comic book movies of all time when he made X2: X-Men United in 2003; and earlier this year he introduced the series to its biggest critical and box office success yet with X-Men: Days of Future Past. With this established record it makes all the sense in the world to bring him back to guide the series into the future, and now that's exactly what 20th Century Fox is doing. Deadline is now reporting that Fox has closed a deal with Bryan Singer that will see the filmmaker return to the X-Men franchise and direct X-Men: Apocalypse. While this is the first we've heard about any kind of »

This Jurassic World Image Will Give Dennis Nedry Nightmares

13 hours ago

Autumn. pic.twitter.com/rbWVJHDtmy. Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) September 22, 2014 Today marks the first day of Autumn, and those who appreciate the changing of the colors in the leaves on trees will look forward to long walks on unusually cool afternoons. Unless you are in Jurassic World, that is. Those folks will be running for their lives. Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow shared the above photo on his Twitter feed. The only word that he shared is "Autumn," which leads us to believe that the movie might take place in Fall. Yes, the director filmed scenes in Hawaii. which isn.t necessarily known for its four seasons. But maybe this is the first Jurassic movie that will take place during a distinct season on the calendar? That.d be amazing. Come to think of it, I want to see a winter-set Jurassic Park sequel.

X-Men: Apocalypse Will Probably Change Course With These Main Characters

14 hours ago

Back in 2011, the X-Men franchise managed to pull off something kind of incredible. After spending years of establishing actors like Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and Rebecca Romijn as cinematic versions of Professor X, Magneto and Mystique, the series completely changed things up with the prequel X-Men: First Class - bringing in younger actors James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence to play the aforementioned parts. Now, three years later, the comic book movie franchise is ready to do a bit of recasting once again, although this time it will be with the characters like Jean Grey, Storm, Cyclops. This news comes to us from Deadline, which has gotten its hands on some big news about the in-development X-Men: Apocalypse. Included in a somewhat vague plot description of the film - which promises the return of McAvoy's Professsor X, Fassbender's Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Nicholas Hoult »

Jeremy Renner For Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters 2? Here Is His Answer

14 hours ago

Critics largely loathed it. Audiences didn't initially know what to make of it. But despite being dropped in the dead zone that is January and left to rot, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters found a following that took the R-rated fairy tale to a respectable $220 million worldwide. A sequel is promised, but we're still waiting on word that it's a go. And it seems that might all hinge on Jeremy Renner, a man of many, many movie franchises. Today I sat down with Jeremy Renner, who is currently involved in franchises spawned from The Avengers, The Bourne Identity, and Mission: Impossible. After talking about his upcoming political thriller Kill The Messenger, I asked this insanely busy star about the prospect of him returning to Hansel & Grete:l Witch Hunters for its sequel. Cb: Are you signed on to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2? Jeremy Renner: Not that I'm aware of, no. I »

The Wire's Omar Was Once Cast In A Marvel Movie, Here's What Happened

15 hours ago

Earlier we reported that Boardwalk Empire's Michael K. Williams is ready and willing to take on the role of Black Panther. All Marvel need do is ask. But this possible casting scenario would not mark the heralded actor's first appearance in a Marvel movie. Deep-cut fans of Williams know full well he had a blink-and-you'll-miss-it role in 2008's Edward Norton-led The Incredible Hulk. He's credited as "Harlem bystander," which is insane when you consider this film came out at the tail-end of his run on the highly acclaimed series The Wire. Michael K. Williams was too big a name to be casually popping up as a featured extra. So how did this happen? Turns out, Williams had a major moment with the titular superhero that was nearly completely cut from the film. While researching to interview Michael K. Williams about his role in the Jeremy Renner-fronted thriller Kill The Messenger, »

The Deadpool Movie Will Probably Feature Some Of Your Favorite X-Men Characters

15 hours ago

The first time that Deadpool appeared on the big screen, he was one part of a larger ensemble that centered around Hugh Jackman.s Wolverine. Yes, I know that talking about X-Men: Origins . Wolverine stings. But the idea is that Wade Winston Wilson often plays in the same sandboxes as the X-Men characters, and that trend could continue when the anti-hero makes his way to the big screen in 2016. During our exclusive interview with Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, we talked about the character.s origins in the comic-book issues of The New Mutants and X-Force. We asked if we can expect New Mutants or X-Men characters to appear in the Deadpool movie. And while Liefeld wasn.t able to confirm anyone specifically, he did tell us: Every new X-film has always featured new mutants in it. I believe Deadpool will reflect that same practice." Diplomatic. I want to discuss Rob »

One Of Hollywood's Best Actors Is Campaigning To Play Black Panther

16 hours ago

A Black Panther movie is coming. Marvel might be keeping mum about it, but Stan Lee has confirmed it. The time is right for actors looking to make their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe to speak up if interested. And the most recent to say it loud and proud is Michael K. Williams of The Wire and Boardwalk Empire. Earlier today, I sat down with Michael K. Williams to discuss his role in the upcoming Jeremy Renner vehicle Kill The Messenger. We'll share more about this tense political thriller closer to its release in October. However, when the conversation turned to all things Marvel, Williams was frank for his hopes and ambitions to get in on the superhero stories. Asked if he had been approached about joining the latest phases of Marvel's Cinematic roll-out, he said: "No not yet. And I'm saying 'yet' with a lot of emphasis. But »

Keanu Reeves. John Wick Has An Insane Body Count

16 hours ago

Is Keanu Reeves back? It appears so. After several years of cinematic duds, including the likes of Constantine, The Day The Earth Stood Still and 47 Ronin, Reeves. new film, John Wick, premiered at the Fantastic Festival to rave reviews over the weekend - and the Speed star has especially come in for high praise for his performance. It also helps that there are rumored to be at least 84 kills in the film, most of which are head shots. Still need to be convinced? You should check out the trailer below then: You see what happens when you mess with Keanu.s dog? Directed by first-time feature filmmaker Chad Stahelksi (who has forged an impressive career as a stunt-man), and written by The Package.s Derek Kolstad, John Wick looks to mix the visual style of Drive with the simple plotting of Taken to create a bona-fide B-movie homage. Reeves appears »

Apparently Thanos Might Not Be The Most Powerful Villain In The Marvel Universe

17 hours ago

Our first real look at Marvel super-villain Thanos in Guardians Of The Galaxy proved that he was one tough cookie. Ok, he didn.t really do that much other than imposingly sit on his throne, bark orders down to Ronan the Accuser, and prove that he is arguably the worst father in the cosmos. But the fact that he was voiced by Josh Brolin meant that you couldn.t help but be immediately intimated. Such a powerful and terrifying foe should surely be a once in a lifetime adversary for the likes of heroes such as Iron Man, Peter Quill and The Hulk, but Stan Lee, the creative comic-book genius behind most of the characters that now populate the Marvel Studio.s cinematic adventures, doesn't actually believe that he is the end-all-be-all of Marvel villains. During a question and answer session on Twitter, Lee, who had a hand in creating »

Ultron Will Be A Lot More Physically Imposing Than We Thought

18 hours ago

Actor James Spader has had a rich and varied career, from starring in NBC.s new hit series The Blacklist to appearing in movies like the quirky S&M cult flick Secretary. It seems unlikely that anything in his previous body of work really prepared for him the task of playing a giant robot, though . which is exactly what Spader will do in Marvel.s upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Just how massive is Ultron? Well, Spader spilled the beans in this clip from The Tonight Show with host Jimmy Fallon, which was posted over at Comic Book Movie. Does eight feet tall sound big enough for you? Because that.s how tall Ultron is, according to the just under six foot tall actor. "I.m Ultron, eight foot robot," Spader said when the topic got around to the latest Avengers movie. Mix that with the super-strength of the »

Monday Movie Memo: What Batman V Superman Needs To Share With Us Next

18 hours ago

J.J. Abrams and Zack Snyder are very protective of their respective properties, Star Wars: Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Except, it appears, when they are sharing footage and imagery to please each other (and themselves). Abrams and Snyder engaged in a very public, and very amusing, battle of Internet memes recently, blending their pop-culture universes in a series of footage-shares that are very 2014. If you missed it, I.ll embed the clever online shares below. Hoping that this give-and-take continues as both directors work through production, I started a conversation about what I hope Zack Snyder decides to share next from the set of Batman v Superman. Join the conversation by listening to the Monday Movie Memo above. This Tweet, shared by Zack Snyder, started the ball rolling. It shows Gotham cops arresting Stormtroopers for allegedly stealing the new Batmobile: Case closed. pic.twitter.com/ »

Watch David Hasselhoff Go Off In An Epic, Nsfw Rant About His Own Greatness

18 hours ago

The following video is filled up with profanity. It is definitely Nsfw. So, if you're at work, be mindful. For a movie that almost never saw the light of day, Joe Carnahan.s Stretch most recently found itself a new lease on life through Universal.s newly budding interest in Video On Demand distribution. Since the show.s back on the road, the PR machine is officially in overdrive to promote the film's digital release this fall, and in order to draw the right attention, they've chosen the right clip to show the public. Behold, the wrath of The Hoff! The official YouTube channel for Stretch has just dropped the footage of Patrick Wilson's main character, the titular Stretch, getting reamed out by David Hasselhoff for being an hour late to pick him up. However, knowing David Hasselhoff and the air of mysticism and nutty self importance he perpetuates »

How The Leaked Deadpool Footage Changed The Superhero's Fate

19 hours ago

The Deadpool movie, for lack of a better term, was dead in the water. Despite passionate pleas from fans . and cajoling on the part of Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld . Hollywood couldn.t figure out how to get wise-cracking mercenary Wade Winston Wilson off the comic-book page and on to the big screen. (The less we say about his unfortunate portrayal in X-Men: Origins . Wolverine, the better.) Then, something happened. The tides changed behind the scenes at 20th Century Fox, and . as we reported earlier . a Deadpool movie received both a greenlight and a release date. What changed? Rob Liefeld, creator of the iconic anti-hero, credits the leaked Deadpool footage that blasted its way across the Internet a few weeks back with finally cutting through the red tape and getting Deadpool into pre-production. In an exclusive interview, Liefeld referred to that leaked footage . and the positive response to it from fans »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Play Edward Snowden In This Controversial Biopic

21 hours ago

Hollywood is full of stories about child stars who made it big young, then flamed out and met tragic ends. Inception star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is not one of those cautionary tales. The actor, who got his big break as a fresh-faced kid on television series like Roseanne and Third Rock from the Sun, has made quite a career for himself in years since those shows went off the air. And the latest industry buzz has the actor potentially playing one of the most controversial figures in recent American history: Nsa whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Deadline reports that Oliver Stone is keenly interested in getting Gordon-Levitt to headline his new bipoic about the former CIA system administrator. Snowden became a hot topic in 2013 after divulging the extent of governmental surveillance in the wake of 9/11, eventually forcing him to seek asylum in Russia.
