Guardians Of The Galaxy's Gamora Wasn't Always Going To Be Green

3 hours ago

It's always fun to look at concept art for a big budget blockbuster, as it gives you an interesting look into just what could have been if those in charge had made some slightly altered decisions. In the case of Guardians Of The Galaxy, we almost had a couple of different looks to the Guardians themselves. In the case of Rocket Raccoon, we almost had a less cuddly version of everyone's favorite smart ass parading about on the screen. However, if you thought that was the most extreme change you've seen for a Guardians character, then feast your eyes on what Gamora almost looked like. Here's an early #Gamora design I did for @Guardians Before she had to be green #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy pic.twitter.com/2lfDhwk6Xk.

Watch Every Captain America: The Winter Soldier Easter Egg

5 hours ago

We've talked about how Marvel is the dominant species when it comes to Easter eggs being hidden in a film. However, not even we could spot some of the Easter eggs buried deep within Captain America: The Winter Solider. Some of these references so sly they couldn't be captured until the film's home video release. With a digital HD version currently available for home viewing, now we have them all. Watch every Easter egg hidden in Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2-parts. Here.s part one. And now part 2. Both videos cover deeper connections to the Marvel Universe, as well as connections to the world outside of the McU. For instance, consider the following higlights: The Lemurian Star refers to the sunken continent of Lemuria. Lemuria is home to The Deviants. Arnim Zola's supercomputer form is a stepping stone to becoming a cyborg. A cyborg that was an »

New Evidence The Flash May Be In Batman v Superman

5 hours ago

The green socks started the conversation. Scoot McNairy.s quotes are kicking the discussion into a higher gear. We know that Argo co-star Scoot McNairy, a star on the rise, locked down a mysterious role in Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But when he was photographed on the set recently wearing long, green socks on his legs, speculation ran wild. The socks looked like tools that one would use to later manipulate an actor.s legs, which led to guesses that McNairy was playing The Flash, a deformed Robin, or a different character new to the DC universe. (Read our best guesses here!) McNairy doesn.t reveal his role, but he does confess that he believes he.ll be staying in these movies for a while. In an interview with Schmoes Know, McNairy admitted: I can.t even elaborate on nothing. but you know all those »

The Blair Witch Guy Made A Movie About Hunting Bigfoot, You Have To See The Trailer

6 hours ago

I.m a total horror movie apologist. If a filmmaker can shoehorn in a few legitimate scares at some point across the hour-and-forty-minute runtime, I.ll probably find a way to defend the movie. I just can.t help myself, which is why you should probably take the following sentence with a grain of salt: I am pumped up about this new Bigfoot movie! Directed by Eduardo Sanchez, who is best known for giving the world The Blair Witch Project, Exists follows a group of friends who venture out into the woods to sleep in a strange cabin, of course. They bring cameras, of course, and begin encountering some things that go bump in the night, of course. More specifically, they encounter one thing that goes bump in the night: the not so mythical Sasquatch, who may or may not be the same guy who starred in those hysterical beef »

Ghostbusters Plot Gets Picked Apart With An Honest Trailer

9 hours ago

When it comes to their Honest Trailers series, Screen Junkies tends not to discriminate when it comes to the films they pick. Whether it's a recent blockbusters, a less successful film or a beloved classic, no movie appears to be out of bounds for the amusing trailers, which make it their business to tell the plot like it is. The latest to receive the Honest Trailers treatment is none other than 80s classic Ghostbusters. "They've got the car, the gadgets and the vaguely scientific know-how to put evil in its place." The Ghostbusters Honest Trailer picks apart quite a bit, poking fun at Venkman for being a "borderline sexual predator" to Winston's diminished role (and Eddie Murphy turning down the part) to the fact that the media makes a big fuss over the Ghostbusters busting ghosts left and right, and not so much about the fact that there are apparently »

The Richard Pryor Biopic Finally Picks Its Richard Pryor

9 hours ago

It.s Mike Epps! After years of rumors and months of open competition, Mike Epps has pushed his way to the front of the pack and officially landed the role of Richard Pryor in the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic. He should be pretty proud too given pretty much everyone else rumored for the role was either more famous or more buzzed about. The announcement hasn.t been officially made by the studio, but director Lee Daniels and producer and rumored star Oprah Winfrey both tweeted / instagramed pictures that celebrated the casting. The Richard Pryor biopic has already gone through several producers and has had a ton of different stars linked to it. At various points, the world was pretty convinced the role was going to go to Michael B Jordan, Nick Cannon or Marlon Wayans. None of those versions ever came together, however, and according to IndieWire, Epps crushed his »

Guardians Of The Galaxy's Nebula Almost Had A Very Different Look

10 hours ago

Actress Karen Killan shaved her head to play Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy, and that sacrifice paid off. Nebula, despite her somewhat nebulous role in the film, stands out in a cast of great heroes and villains. A lot of that has to do with the script and Karen Gillan.s performance, but at least a part of it is simply because of her look which is, in a word, badass. Yet, believe it or not, she might have looked even better. Earlier this month we showed you this alternate look for the character which displayed a lot more skin. But that.s just the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to what Marvel had in mind. Below are a few more alternate looks the Guardians of the Galaxy team was considering for the character, released by Marvel concept artist Andy Park and picked up by our friends »

The Biggest Hit Of Vin Diesel's Career Isn't The Film You'd Expect

10 hours ago

Any way you want to look at it, Vin Diesel has had an extremely successful career. He.s toplined huge franchises. He.s played key supporting roles in beloved movies, and he.s somehow amassed more than twice as many Facebook fans as the Beatles. That, my friends, is overachieving, but even given all that, he apparently still has room to hit new benchmarks. For example: he has a new highest grossing film of his entire career. Guardians Of The Galaxy is now the single biggest movie, at least domestically, Vin Diesel has ever been a part of. According to Box Office Mojo, it has generated more than $253,000,000, which puts its roughly $15,000,000 ahead of runner-up Fast & Furious 6. Critics might say it.s not fair to lump Gotg in with more traditional Vin Diesel efforts since it.s voicework, but anyone who saw Guardians knows how important the actor is »

Japan Has Its Own Batman, And He Is So Awesome

11 hours ago

千葉の高速にバットマンがいた笑 こんな人いるのかよΣ(・□・;) pic.twitter.com/e8gbq7T9mv. りゅーちゃん (@snsd_mumin) August 24, 2014 Nuh-nuh, nuh-nuh, nuh-nuh, nuh-nuh. Bat fan! The hook about Batman is that he.s an ordinary guy doing extraordinary things. Ok, he.s a multi-millionaire pouring his family fortune into a one-man war on organized crime. But Bruce Wayne isn.t an alien from the planet Krypton, or a mutant blessed with a genetic enhancement. He.s a man, who pushes himself to physical and psychological extremes to persevere and protect. If you stripped away the costume, he.d look a little bit like us. And if we had his resources, we could look a little bit like him. That is the calling card of this one extreme Japanese fan who . according to HitFix . went the extra mile to build his own authentic Batsuit and Batcycle to cruise "down the highway in Chiba Prefecture," located east of Tokyo. »

Watch Superman Brave Multiple Ice Bucket Challenges In Costume

14 hours ago

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive. Able to endure multiple buckets of freezing-cold water as part of a massive ice bucket challenge. That.s the new mantra for Henry Cavill.s Man of Steel as he and Amy Adams took the plunge to help Als awareness in the above video. Amy Adams starts the challenge, which was posted to Vimeo by Cruel Films. And things get cruel. eventually. Ms. Lois Lane begins by accepting the challenge, then passing it along to her siblings. By the look of her wet hair, I.m wondering if there was a dress rehearsal for this challenge. Soon enough, though, the dumping is underway. Henry Cavill, in full Superman attire, takes a regular bucket alongside Amy Adams. But because he is Superman . and he.s impervious to pain . the buckets of ice water just keep coming. Two. Three. Four. By the »

These Alternate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Designs Will Haunt Your Dreams Forever

14 hours ago

(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/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Anthony Francisco. From the first appearance of the rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, fans were outraged about how Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael and Leonardo had been redesigned. Gone were the slender, shelled surfer dudes of the 1990s incarnation. In their place stood hulking CGI monstrosities with meaty lips and a barrage of knickknacks cluttering their costumes. But the heroes on half-shell could have looked radically different. On his Facebook page, Anthony Francisco shared some concept art that he pitched to Platinum Dunes in 2011. Back then, Michael Bay's production company was shopping for a shop to bring the rebooted turtles to life. Francisco contributed to the designs for Illusion Industries, »

This Week In Home Entertainment: The Walking Dead, The Normal Heart And More

14 hours ago

Blended Blu-ray Adam Sandler has incurred the ire of critics over the last several years, producing raunchy comedies that have often been a giant excuse to go on vacation. However, with Blended, Sandler manages to take the kid-oriented gags and vacation plot to a more charming level, thanks to great onscreen chemistry with Drew Barrymore. Of course, they've had plenty of practice. She's his partner in crime from 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer, the latter of which was also directed by Frank Coraci. The central premise of the film is flimsy but passable for a romantic comedy. Jim (Sandler) and Lauren (Barrymore) meet for a blind date that doesn.t go particularly well. As it turns out, Lauren.s friend is dating Jim.s boss and when that couple has a falling out, Lauren and Jim become the beneficiaries of an awesome African vacation package. Naturally, they both take »

This Is How Jurassic World Is Paying Tribute To John Hammond

16 hours ago

In Memoriam. pic.twitter.com/5jL7Sh9Hpr. Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) August 25, 2014 This weekend we lost the legendary Lord Richard Attenborough, and even today his loss is still felt. The tremendous actor/director of such films as The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles, Brighton Rock, Gandhi and Chaplin left a full life and a grand legacy behind, which has mostly been highlighted by his work in Steven Spielberg's 1993 masterpiece Jurassic Park. Now while Attenborough did have an enormous legacy before his role as the eccentric John Hammond, it is that role that most modern audiences identify him with. A role that is being paid tribute by friends, colleagues, and even those who did not get to work with him, but continue his legacy tangentially. Case in point is Colin Trevorrow's tweet from last night, showcasing what can be assumed to be a memorial to John Hammond in the »

The Deranged Acting Advice Steve Carell Got From Foxcatcher's Director

16 hours ago

There is a tremendous amount of buzz surrounding Steve Carell.s upcoming performance in Foxcatcher. In fact, the actor is expected to be a major force this awards season. He is, by all accounts, great in the film. Those who have followed the former Office star.s career, however, shouldn.t be too shocked, however. He.s always been able to tap into tremendous sadness and loneliness behind his eyes. He just needed the right project, and apparently, a director to threaten him with something really fucked up. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Bennett Miller told Steve Carell to write down the worst thing he.d ever done in his entire life, to find a moment that was so evil and/ or embarrassing that he would never tell his wife. He then made him put the piece of paper inside his pocket before shooting the movie's most pivotal scene. »

Watch The Princess Bride Re-Imagined As A Horror Movie

17 hours ago

It's amazing what a bit of clever editing, some title cards, and a hint of slo-mo can do. In this recut trailer for The Princess Bride, these elements blend to turn a romantic fantasy that was fit for children of all ages into a horror movie in the vein of Single White Female or Dressed To Kill. In 1987, Rob Reiner brought us The Princess Bride, an adaptation of a fairy tale penned by William Goldman. Robin Wright starred as Buttercup, a beautiful--if demanding--princess who'd won the eye of a loyal and dashing farmboy Westley (Cary Elwes). But their love was thwarted when the selfish and vile Prince Humperdink swept in and stole Buttercup away to be his own bride. Everyone knows that Westley returns as the Dread Pirate Roberts to rescue Buttercup from her crooked, crowned captor! But what the trailer above asks is, what he didn't? What if instead »

Matthew McConaughey Shows Off Amazing IMAX Footage In New Interstellar Spot

17 hours ago

Social media erupted Monday night with disappointment and frustration over True Detective star Matthew McConaughey.s loss to Breaking Bad.s Bryan Cranston. I feel your pain, HBO supporters, but don.t cry too long and too hard for McConaughey. After all, he still has that Oscar on his shelf for his outstanding work in the dramatic feature Dallas Buyers Club. And he appears to have an out-of-this-world hit on his radar for later this year . literally . in Christopher Nolan.s Interstellar. It promises to be big. How big? IMAX big, as the latest TV spot reminds. When it comes to pioneering visual advancements, Interstellar director Christopher Nolan leans deeply into the IMAX camp, and appears to ignore (completely) the use of 3D. I can.t say that I blame him. There.s real potential in 3D, but when used improperly, it is a thundering failure. IMAX, on the other »

When Will Ridley Scott Direct Blade Runner 2?

18 hours ago

Sir Ridley Scott likes to keep a number of irons in the fire. At one point, the legendary filmmaker.s IMDb had nearly as many "announced" projects as it did completed features. The Englishman likes to work, even at the older age of 76, and he has several sandboxes in which he.s able to play. Two of his most popular worlds might get extensions, in fact, as Ridley Scott says screenplays are reaching positions of completion. So what.s on the horizon, and when might we see these films? Ridley Scott opened up to EW about three of his most-discussed projects: his Blade Runner sequel; his Prometheus sequel; and The Martian, which he wants to make with Matt Damon. Of the three, he suggests that The Martian will be next, adapted from Andy Weir.s novel about an astronaut stranded on Mars following a solar storm. Scott says he has »

George Lucas Almost Ruined Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Here's How

18 hours ago

From lightsabers to Darth Vader's mask to quotable lines ("Use the Force!"), few movies are as hugely iconic as the original Star Wars trilogy. But new video has just revealed that one of the most memorably elements of the sci-fi fantasy was nearly cut from the films completely, that'd be the voice of Yoda. Giant Freakin Robot has tipped us to an interview with legendary puppeteer and moviemaker Frank Oz, in which he confesses that George Lucas fought hard to get anyone but Oz to voice the pint-sized Jedi master in 1980's Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. Oz recalls: "George didn't want my voice in the beginning. I gave him a (demo) tape. He said, 'No thank you.' And in post-production for about a year I heard that he was auditioning voices for Yoda. He had no intention of using me for the voice. Then »

Latest Gone Girl Trailer Places All Of The Blame On Ben Affleck

19 hours ago

What happened to Amy Dunne? That's the question that plays at the center of David Fincher's latest, Gone Girl. In the trailer up top, we see this query explored along with some new footage featuring Ben Affleck, Neil Patrick Harris, Carrie Coon, Rosamund Pike and Tyler Perry. Based on the must-read novel of the summer of 2012, Gone Girl centers on Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck), a washed up writer who has been mired in an unhappy marriage with his lovely wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike). As the trailer teases, the two's initial spark of passion has sputtered out, but has it become something dangerous? After Amy goes missing and the details of their breaking marriage hits the news, cops, friends and family members begin to wonder if Nick killed his wife. It's a big question that this anti-hero refuses to answer in the trailers. What could have been a run-of-the-mill crime »

Captain America's Falcon And Winter Soldier Take The Ice Bucket Challenge In Costume

25 August 2014 9:04 PM, PDT

Once upon a time, we may have been amused simply by watching celebrities dump water on themselves in honor of Als research, but a few weeks and thousands of videos later, it now takes something a little more outside the box to really get our attentions. Fortunately, Captain America stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan found just that route when they decided to do the deed in costume. Of course, as you saw in the above video, it.s not quite the costumes fans were expecting. No, instead of suiting up and rocking the outfits they wear on camera, they procured miniaturized versions of their characters and dumped ice water on them. It.s a great little departure from the audience.s expectations and perhaps most importantly, it taps into a key element of Marvel.s success. Whether true or not, Marvel has been able to create a sense that »
