22 hours ago

As iconic as Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve.s original Superman has become in the decades since its release, subsequent installments in the franchise did not fare quite as well. Superman III has developed particular notoriety for being a low point in the franchise . mainly for its campy tone and casting of comedian Richard Pryor. However, one adept fan decided to edit the abhorrent film into a horror trailer that's actually incredibly gripping, check it out below to see for yourself. The trailer showcases a world in which Superman uses his vast array of powers to wreak havoc and cause destruction wherever he goes with impunity. Whether causing a massive oil spill, or merely breaking bottles at a local bar, Superman can do essentially whatever he wants because no one can stop him. It makes Kal-El out to be the monster that many of Superman.s villains often try to »

How Professor X Will Lose His Hair In X-Men: Apocalypse

28 November 2015 9:35 AM, PST

The quickest, most simple way to differentiate James McAvoy.s version of Charles Xavier from Patrick Stewart.s in Fox.s X-Men films has always been the lush mop of hair atop the former.s head, while the latter possessed the more iconic chrome dome that comic book fans know and love. As audiences have watched McAvoy.s Professor X grow and mature since 2011.s X-Men: First Class, they have all wondered when and how Xavier would lose his brown locks for the streamlined look. Now the actor says that X-Men: Apocalypse will provide those answers.   Appearing on The Graham Norton Show with Daniel Radcliffe to promote the new film Victor Frankenstein, McAvoy discussed Xavier.s hair loss when the topic shifted to the upcoming Apocalypse: He ends up going through something so horrible and physically painful that he literally half pulls his hair out/half it falls out. Maybe, »

Victor Frankenstein Director's Blunt Opinion Of Frankenstein

28 November 2015 8:38 AM, PST

Frankenstein and his monster are two of the most iconic beings in the realm of cinema. Based on Mary Shelley.s original Frankenstein novel, the characters inhabiting this universe now come with a certain set of audience expectations. According to Victor Frankenstein director Paul McGuigan, those expectations must be avoided.   McGuigan has been incredibly vocal about his desire to deviate from the source material, according to Screen Rant, and he wants to strike new ground with a story of his own:   We give a lot of backstory to it. And it.s our backstory, it.s what we.ve chosen to make up. There.s not a reverence to the book. I think sometimes people are over-reverent about the book. It.s got a fantastic premise, I don.t know if you.ve ever read it, but it.s dull as dishwater, in my opinion.   So while he seems to »

New Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Trailer Is Gruesome And Cool, Watch It Now

28 November 2015 7:44 AM, PST

When a genre becomes as massively popular as zombie fiction, it can get a little tired. When that happens, it becomes important to switch things up, or take the proceedings in a direction that movie audiences have seldom . if ever . seen before. A new trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has just dropped, and it.s safe to say that it looks poised to turn the zombie genre on its decomposing head. Check it out below. Based on the 2009 Seth Grahame-Smith novel of the same name, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies takes elements of the classic 1813 Jane Austen story of love between social classes in the 19th century, and injects the looming threat of zombie hordes. The story follows protagonist Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters through their lives that become devoted to training and fighting the legion of zombies intent on devouring them and those they love. »

Robert Rodriguez Made A Movie We'll Have To Wait A Ridiculously Long Time To See

28 November 2015 7:32 AM, PST

It doesn.t get any more plain or simple: waiting for a highly anticipated movie to be released can seriously suck. We have known about major releases like Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens literally for years, and have been powerless to do little else besides sit and wait. While those waits may seem agonizing, Robert Rodriguez and John Malkovich have just created a new project that audiences won.t get to see for a very, very, long time.   Just how long will "we" have to wait to see this project? A report from io9 indicates that the film . aptly titled 100 Years: The Movie You Will Never See . has been placed in a special time-locked safe that will not unlock until November 18, 2115. The reason for the wait is that the film will serve as a promotion for Louis Xiii Cognac. The process for creating »

The Captain America: Civil War Trailer Is Even More Emotional With Adele

27 November 2015 5:48 PM, PST

If you.re like us, and you watched that Captain America: Civil War trailer like fifty times as soon as it dropped the other night, you.re well aware that, for all the action and spectacle, it.s one of the most emotional promotional bits that Marvel has ever put together. Those few minutes are all about friendship and feelings, and just when you think it can.t get any more sensitive and moving, some damn lunatic went ahead and put Adele.s new hit, "Hello," over the top of the action and it.s all we can do to keep from weeping openly in public. "The Civil War: Bromance Version," as this video from Vimeo user Anthony Meadows is called, is seriously spot on. With everything that.s going on in Marvel.s next superhero adventure.from the government trying to regulate superheroes, to old friends coming back together, »

How J.J. Abrams Made Star Wars 7's Lightsaber Battles Different From The Prequels

27 November 2015 4:44 PM, PST

Over the course of the build up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, director J.J. Abrams has taken great pains to set the new film apart from George Lucas. prequels. There will be no mention of midi-chlorians, no Jar Jar Binks, and instead of ubiquitous green screen, they used practical special effects whenever possible. Another way he set his movie apart was by staging the lightsaber battles differently than in Episodes I, II, and III. It wouldn.t be a Star Wars movie without at least one badass lightsaber duel, and we.ve seen footage of Finn (John Boyega) about to throw down with the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). In Abrams. opinion, the duels in the first three Episodes were highly stylized, choreographed almost like a dance. He wanted something else when it came to the Finn/Kylo Ren fight, and looked to the original trilogy for inspiration, »

Michael Fassbender Will Play Two Roles In Alien: Covenant

27 November 2015 4:07 PM, PST

Fresh off providing us with an update on some of the questions that he’ll be answering with the upcoming Alien: Covenant, Sir Ridley Scott has once again been talking about the upcoming Prometheus sequel/Alien prequel. The legendary English director confirmed that Michael Fassbender, who, I think we can all admit, stole Prometheus thanks to his fantastic performance as David the android, will actually play two roles in the blockbuster. Which, for an actor of his caliber, could produce scintillating results.  Scott made this admission during a press conference, witnessed by Screen Daily, for the upcoming science fiction film that was held at Sydney’s Fox Studios Australia. The event was organised to celebrate the fact that production will take place down under. While speaking about Alien: Covenant, not only did the filmmaker reveal that Noomi Rapace will be returning »

Reese Witherspoon Is Developing A Movie About A Massively Popular Toy

27 November 2015 2:35 PM, PST

Reese Witherspoon is making a film about Barbie. But while that might sound like Reese Witherspoon is about to live out the fantasy of many a young girl by portraying the world’s most famous blonde doll, that’s not exactly the case. It’s something much more alluring instead. That’s because Witherspoon, along with her producing partner Bruna Papandrea, is currently developing an origin story that revolves around the woman who created Barbie, Ruth Handler. In fact, accordig to The Tracking Board, the proposed movie took quite a giant leap forward over the last few days. Bold Films decided to add the project to their slate after Witherspoon and Papandrea's Pacific Standard picked up the rights to Barbie and Ruth: The Story Of The World’s Most Famous Doll And The Woman Who Created Her, written by Robin Gerber, which revolves around »

27 November 2015 2:33 PM, PST

Landing the chance to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens must have been the opportunity of a lifetime for J.J. Abrams. Like many of us, he.s a big old Star Wars nerd and a lifelong devotee of that far, far away galaxy. But beyond that, he.s also a fan of cinema of all varieties, and his influences are wide, varied, and apparent in many of his films, traits that we will see on display in a few weeks.

The latest edition of Empire is all over the Star Wars beat, and when they talked to Abrams, he revealed a trio of big, yet unexpected influences on his upcoming addition to the beloved space opera. They may not be the inspiration you normally expect to find in an epic space adventure, but they.re »

Victor Frankenstein Is Already In Trouble At The Box Office

27 November 2015 1:30 PM, PST

It’s gonna take more than a bolt of lightning to save this one. The first numbers for the opening weekend of Victor Frankenstein are out, and they’re about as unattractive as the monster itself. Facing tough competition in the wake of a few big Thanksgiving releases, Victor Frankenstein is falling victim to its peers. According to The Hollywood Reporter, in its first two days in theaters, Victor Frankenstein has made a ghastly $1 million nationwide. At this rate, the new flick is likely to recoup a mere $4-$5 million dollars in its opening weekend. The horror. These opening numbers, when compared to the rather large budget ($40 Million), make the results even more tragic.  Released this past Wednesday, Victor Frankenstein is a retelling of the famed Mary Shelly novel, as well as the story of Dr. Frankenstein's monster we all know.

Katniss Loves Pita Video Is Dumb And Fantastic

27 November 2015 1:01 PM, PST

Sometimes the internet conjures up something that immediately provokes you to rise to your feet and clap in appreciation. Most of the time it involves a cat being a dick. But on this rare occasion, one nifty YouTube video has decided to riff on the rather ridiculous name of Josh Hutchinson.s character in The Hunger Games franchise to depict Jennifer Lawrence.s Katniss Everdeen repeatedly, and loudly, declaring her love for pita, not Peeta. It.s stupid. It.s ridiculous. It.s also really, really funny.  Well played, internet. Well played, indeed. For some inexplicable reason, especially since the video is basically just the same joke being told over and over and over again, the gag just gets funnier with each passing cut.  Maybe it.s just because the world loves Jennifer Lawrence so damn much, and everything that.s even remotely connected to her instantly manages to go »

Zoolander 2 Has Already Broken A Record

27 November 2015 11:26 AM, PST

Trailers have a tendency to garner almost as much buzz as films themselves. As little snippets of an upcoming movie, these previews create a sense of anticipation and provide the first opportunity for the creative forces behind a film to showcase the finished product. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke viewing records with its trailer, another upcoming film recently did the same for its own genre: Zoolander 2.   Despite the fact that the Zoolander 2 trailer premiered less than two weeks ago, Variety reports that it has already broken the record for most watched trailer for a comedy film ever. Since hitting the web on November 18, the trailer went on to garner more than 52 million views in its first week on the Internet. The previous record holder was 2014.s Dumb and Dumber To, which was, similarly, a sequel to a long dormant classic comedy franchise.   People have ben clamoring »

The Huge Question Ridley Scott Wants To Answer With His Alien Sequels

27 November 2015 11:17 AM, PST

Ridley Scott is already hard at work on the follow-up to Prometheus. Make that follow-ups, because the English director has made it very clear that he wants to explore the franchise and its cavalcade of characters and beasts in much more detail over a number of films. In fact, he’s now revealed the exact question that he will explore in his upcoming Alien adventures.  Ridley Scott admitted that, to him, these queries are actually rather rudimentary and simple. In fact he’s surprised that no-one explored them in either Aliens, Alien 3, or Alien: Resurrection. He told The Hollywood Reporter:  I was amazed that in the 3 that followed that no-one asked the question, ‘Why the Alien, who made it and why?’ Very basic questions. So I came up with the notion of Prometheus 1, which starts to indicate who might have made it and where »

7 Characters That You Don't Have To Worry About Dying In Captain America: Civil War

27 November 2015 11:12 AM, PST

There are always casualties in war, and Captain America: Civil War won’t be any exception next year. Granted, this is the world full of superheroes, and in the comics, deaths are rarely permanent. That said, this is also a live action franchise, and in order to show that this story has real stakes, Marvel will need to take someone off the board permanently. While bad guys are frequently killed in the McU, we can’t help but suspect this time we’ll also lose a good guy. So far it’s hard to tell who will bite the dust, though that shot of Iron Man holding a fallen War Machine in this week’s teaser trailer certainly didn’t look good. As hard as it is to predict which major characters will die, one thing we do know ahead of time is the »

27 November 2015 11:05 AM, PST

2015 has been a big year for Hollywood. So far, four movies have topped the billion-dollar mark worldwide.Jurassic World, Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Minions.which places each of them in the top ten of all time globally. And The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.Part 2 is just getting rolling, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still to come, so things could potentially get even bigger, box office wise. That said, not every movie of the past year was a big financial success. In fact, there were some straight up box office dogs to be found. There.s still obviously a chunk of 2015 left, but Forbes put together their list of the biggest flops and box office turkeys of the year. Not necessarily the movies that made the least money, this list focuses on movies that opened wide, in at least 2000 theaters, and that produced the smallest return »

How Gremlins 3 Might Follow The Jurassic World Model

27 November 2015 10:40 AM, PST

More Gremlins movies are coming because Hollywood loves its damn franchises. Rumors about the project have persisted for quite some time, as well as the possibility that it may be a reboot or a remake of the 1984 cult classic horror-comedy. However, now it seems that the filmmakers are not so eager to ignore the continuity of the previous Gremlins.   GamesRader reports that, while attending a screening of Gremlins in London, star Zach Galligan indicated that Gremlins 3 would take inspiration from an unlikely source, Jurassic World. He said: So the only thing they will be . and apparently are going to be . doing is something along the lines of like Jurassic World, where it will be 30 years later. This essentially means that rather than going back and retelling the story of the original Gremlins movie . or retelling it in a modern way . Gremlins 3 will pick up where the other films left off. »

How Warcraft Will Differ From Previous Fantasy Films

27 November 2015 10:07 AM, PST

The fantasy genre is one of the oldest and most thoroughly explored styles of storytelling that there is. From Lord of the Rings to The Hobbit to the Harry Potter films, there have been films that transport audiences to outlandish worlds and tell stories about the triumph of good over evil. However, that style of storytelling does not always mirror the world we live in. The upcoming Warcraft adaptation seems poised to change that by injecting serious moral complexity into a normally black and white genre.   In a series of new interviews with IGN, the cast and crew behind Warcraft revealed that part of bringing this specific universe to the silver screen was predicated on the idea of a morally grey story. The basic premise of the film revolves around conflict between humans and orcs when the latter invades the former’s home, the realm of Azeroth. »

Watch Ant-Man Use His Powers To Cheat In New Deleted Scene

27 November 2015 9:55 AM, PST

Scott Lang is the hero in Marvel's Ant-Man. Having said that, he’s not an entirely heroic figure to begin with. The movie starts with him getting out of prison and his only friends are the people he had previously done time with. With that in mind, it becomes much less surprising to discover that Scott Lang is actually a dirty, dirty, cheater. As part of the film’s Blu-ray release we now have access to another scene that was cut out, one that shows Paul Rudd’s character using the Ant-Man suit to do some less than noble things. The scene was obviously scratched before the completion of post production, and though it was filmed, the special effects were never finished. The best part of the scene is actually the little hand drawn Ant-Man that’s been put in place of where the »
