This Avengers 2 Pinocchio Mash-Up Is Even Better Than You Would Have Guessed

11 hours ago

It was probably only a matter of time until someone gave Pinocchio the Avengers 2 trailer treatment, after the hugely anticipated Marvel film used the classic Disney movie's song in its recently released trailer. Check out the great mash-up below to see just how creepy Pinocchio looks with Avengers: Age of Ultron behind it... The Ultron Mashup Trailer comes to us courtesy of the Nerd Reactor Youtube channel (Edited by John "Spartan" Nguyen). As you may have noticed, the video uses footage from the 1940 Disney animated film Pinocchio, mixed with audio from the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. Amazingly -- or maybe not -- the video manages to make Pinocchio really creepy. That includes a glimpse of Cleo's angry glare, some terrified donkeys, some very sinister looking cuckoo clocks, including this one... And another axe scene, this time featuring the titular marionette... Why would someone want to mash up the »

Lex Luthor Probably Won't Be In Just Batman V Superman

14 hours ago

When the Spider-Man universe flirted with the idea of a villainous team named the Sinister Six, the movie drew on enemies introduced in the movies. (Electro, the Green Goblin and the Rhino were the core examples.) With DC eyeing a similar Suicide Squad film, you would think it would follow suit. only, General Zod.s "unavailable" (read: dead) and there haven.t been any other major villains in this DC cinematic universe. Except one. And he might increase his role in a major way. Jesse Eisenberg is about to introduce the classic villain Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Lex.s presence was hinted at in Man of Steel, but the character is stepping into the foreground for the battle between the Dark Knight and the Blue Boy Scout.

The Question Kieran Culkin Always Gets Asked About She's All That

14 hours ago

There's one question Kieran Culkin gets asked a lot about She's All That. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with with making the Shermanator hoover a pizza with some really disgusting seasoning. Nor is it a request for him to do the "Sega!" line. In fact, it's something more random than that, and it has to do with his ears. In an interview with The Daily Beast, when the subject of the 1999 teen rom-com She's All That came up, and Culkin revealed the question his friends constantly ask him... It.s one of those movies that always seems to be on.and I only know that because friends are always telling me, and then they.ll ask, .Why did you have hearing aids?. and I.ll be like, .I don.t fucking know!. And that's that. In the film about a dreamy guy (Freddie Prinze Jr.) who accepts a bet »

John Carter Cost Even More Money To Make Than We Thought

15 hours ago

John Carter is widely regarded as one of the biggest cinematic flops of recent years. It was previously believed that it lost Disney just under $300 million, but this figure has just increased after it was revealed that the Disney blockbuster actually cost Walt Disney Company $306.6 million to make. Disney had previously withheld the true cost of John Carter, with many experts having previously suggested that its production value was in the $250 million range. The fact that it actually eclipsed this sum by $56.6 million means that Disney.s losses on the film are even more substantial than previously estimated. According to Forbes, these new figures were gathered after the British tax authority revealed they had paid Disney $42.9 million to film John Carter in London. Disney was forced to declare their John Carter costs because of Britain.s tax credit scheme. They had tried to hide how much they spent on the »

17 hours ago

Days after the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer dropped, the Internet is still busy picking up the pieces. The first-look footage sent legions of comic-book and blockbuster-movie fans in a scurry to scour every frame of film, analyzing the clues that director Joss Whedon decided to include in the sneak peek at his 2015 tentpole thriller. And all I could think of as I sat back and watched the Marvel-fuelled insanity was, "What will it be like when J.J. Abrams finally unleashes his first trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII?" After all, Joss Whedon.s first Avengers movie only came out two-and-a-half years ago. Plus, there have been four spectacular Marvel moves released into theaters since that film. The audience.s appetite for Marvel movies should have been satiated. Star Wars fans, on the flip side, have been starving . metaphorically . for years.

The Hysterical Difference Between Matthew McConaughey And Reese Witherspoon

19 hours ago

Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she and Matthew McConaughey had hugely different lifestyles while filming 2012.s gritty Southern drama, Mud. And, to be honest, it sounds as if McConaughey.s diet and surroundings were both a lot healthier and less depressing than hers. According to Yahoo Movies, Witherspoon made her remarks at a tribute to the Oscar-winning 44-year-old actor that was conducted by American Cinematheque at the Beverly Hills Hilton earlier this week. She was joined by a cavalcade of other Hollywood actresses, each of whom regaled the crowd with a variety of stories that revolved around Matthew McConaughey.s peculiar, yet loveable, antics. But it was Witherspoon.s comments about shooting Mud that proved just how relaxed Matthew McConaughey can be when it comes to his roles. Reese Witherspoon explained that while filming the well received, Jeff Nichols-directed Mud, she had to stay in a motel that was »

Noomi Rapace Has A Great Idea For Who The Villains Should Be In Prometheus 2

19 hours ago

At the end of Ridley Scott's Prometheus, Noomi Rapace's character of Elizabeth Shaw finally got to meet one of the Engineers that created her and the rest of humanity. The only trouble with that meeting was that it turned out the gods who created us wanted to take us out of this universe just as quickly, and had the weapons to do so. After a climactic battle that eventually created the Xenomorphs from the Alien series, we were left with Shaw and David (or what's left of him) heading off to find more of the answers that she's been searching for. Despite Ridley Scott ruling out the Xenomorphs as being the villains in Prometheus 2, Noomi Rapace revealed in an MTV UK interview to promote The Drop that her idea for the next villains in the biological/theological sci-fi franchise are probably the biggest options available. God maybe. »

Lucasfilm Is Suing A Brewery Over This Cleverly Named Beer Flavor

20 hours ago

Don't mess with Lucasfilm. Your cheeky puns of brews and hoppery will not appease its Dark Side. Which is to say that Lucasfilm is suing a New York based brewery for copyright infringement. THR reports Syracuse.s Empire Brewing Co. has been issued a a notice of opposition from Lucasfilm because of the name of one their bock lagers, "Strikes Bock." Yup. Empire's Strikes Bock. Formerly a draft, Empire's Strikes Bock was moving ahead to trademarking the name for bottling and distribution outside of their flagship bar, and that's when they caught the notice of Lucasfilm. The Disney subsidiary insists that the name is too similar to Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. The opposition notice insists that this would cause customer confusion. Customer confusion is a term we've seen sited in lawsuits before, but normally in the instances of mockbusters. For instance, Disney sued in the »

21 hours ago

Movie fans have been rallying for a female-fronted superhero movie. Yet even though Marvel had Black Widow locked and loaded, and Scarlett Johannson totally game, the studio dragged its feet. Now DC is looking to beat Marvel to it, bringing us Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot in 2017. But DC's not done. They're looking to make some history by bringing in a female director to helm. THR ran an extensive breakdown on the 29 superhero movies that are slated to hit theaters by 2020. And in a section discussing directors, the site revealed that DC is said to be seeking a female helmer for Wonder Woman. Should they follow through on this, that would make whoever lands the gig a major part of superhero movie history.

23 October 2014 9:42 PM, PDT

After Drew Goddard dropped out of the director's chair for The Martian, it looked like there was going to be trouble with getting Andy Weir's hot novel off of the ground. But with Fox making the film a priority, and Ridley Scott in the right place at the right time, the project turned itself around and started heading in the right direction. Now The Martian seems unstoppable, as it's not only secured Matt Damon a good long while ago, it's been quietly building up its ranks in the past month or so, with Oscar nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor among the recent additions to the cast. What follows is a list of the big time stars that are on board to star in The Martian, which follows an extremely crafty astronaut whose crew leaves him behind on the red planet after a dust storm cuts their mission short.

The Insidious 3 Trailer Is Creepy, Creative And Terrifying

23 October 2014 7:22 PM, PDT

There are two schools of scares at work in the modern horror genre. The first is the school of planting the scare in plain sight and letting the audience do the noise making for you, an approach that The Conjuring used to great effect. The second school, which is where the Insidious: Chapter 3 rests its head, is the one that uses images and sounds to generate a good jump scare. And believe us, at the heart of this trailer is one really good jump scare. A scare so good, we knew it was coming a mile away, but it still made us almost spill something. What starts out as a classic "ominous surroundings with minimal turmoil waiting to blow up" scenario obviously moves towards something darker and more sinister. By the time our protagonist is texting her crush in bed, right when the knocking starts, we know something's going »

3 Possible Reasons Avengers 2 Has Captain America In The Past

23 October 2014 4:35 PM, PDT

It.s barely been a day since the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer was leaked, and already fans have gone through every inch of that 2:17 video. Upon multiple viewings (I.m at my 20th, or maybe 25th...it.s hard to keep track), the trailer seems to get better each time. Of course, half the fun of the trailer is also speculating on the movie itself going off these scenes. Why are Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch hanging out with Ultron? Why is Thor choking Tony? Who is Andy Serkis playing? Ironically though, one of the most intriguing questions that the trailer poses comes from a blink-and-you-miss-it scene. At the 1:31 mark, right after Scarlet Witch shoots an energy blast, there.s a brief shot of Steve Rogers walking through a crowded party. The Uso banner and old-school suits and dresses suggest there will be a scene featuring Steve back »

Watch Mr Incredible Punch Catwoman In The Face On Hollywood Boulevard

23 October 2014 3:17 PM, PDT

Footage of Mr Incredible punching Catwoman in the face has emerged. But rather than being one of the biggest cinematic tussles of the year it actually took place on Los Angeles. legendary Hollywood Boulevard and was watched by hundreds of passers-by in the area. You can check out footage of the assault below. It doesn.t make for pretty viewing, does it? Unfortunately the two costume characters who usually populate the hugely popular tourist area clearly partook in a rather heated debate before the scuffle broke out. Catwoman must have said something that Mr Incredible wasn.t too fond of to provoke the attack. Maybe it was about Mrs Incredible/Elastigirl.s rather curvaceous behind? I.m only speculating at this point but that seems like a topic that could result in Bob Parr erupting in rage. Mr Incredible was able to get a few hefty punches in before two »
