Amazing Spider-Man 2 To Have An X-Men: Days Of Future Past Post-Credits Sequence

48 minutes ago

Much has been hypothesized about the rivalry between Marvel Studios and Fox (home of the X-Men and Fantastic Four) and Sony (home to Spider-Man), but not much has been said about the relationship just between Fox and Sony regarding their respective Marvel characters. It's possible that this is because Fox and Sony don't have an eye on each other's properties, leaving their comic book movies unspoiled by animosity. Now a new development has arisen, however, and suggests that the studios may not just be neutral towards each other, but possibly even BFFs. According to Empire, Sony is lending out the post-credits space in the upcomingThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 to the Fox and the folks behind X-Men: Days Of Future Past. According to the source, the clip will be an action sequence from the new X-Men movie and will feature a couple of X-characters and an attack on a young General »

America's antebellum south has been the setting of two recent Academy Award winning films, 2012's Django Unchained and 2013's 12 Years A Slave.

Here's the book's plot synopsis, courtesy of Amazon: "Henry Shackleford is a young slave living in the Kansas Territory in 1857, when the region is a battleground between »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Cast Opens Up About 2016's Part Three

1 hour ago

You're always looking ahead in today's blockbuster world. It's not enough to have one huge movie. You've got to plan for the sequel as well. So while a select group are psyched for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, some are looking beyond the film, seeking the truth behind The Amazing Spider-Man 3. And that includes the fellows at Total Film. It's plenty hard for the director to be asked about a third film that hasn't yet been written. Webb plays his cards close when he says, "It ain't gonna be easy for Peter Parker in the future, I think you understand that when you finish this movie... I dunno if it's gonna be darker, but we'll see." Meanwhile, Dane DeHaan has a bit of insight, given that he's playing the villainous Green Goblin, who apparently survives to part three and continues to fuel OsCorp as a hub of villainy.. "I think there's »

Watch NFL Quarterback Aaron Rodgers Clown Seth Green In Hysterical Clip

1 hour ago

Dude.s love football. Universal hopes that dude.s will love Neighbors. So even though the movie has nothing to do with sports, the latest commercial for the upcoming comedy goes right after Espn.s target demographic by placing co-stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in a weight room with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The spot has been posted to Universal.s YouTube page. You likely can see it 100 times a day on Espn.s vast network of channels. But wait. How on Earth is Neighbors going to market itself to the ladies?! Oh yeah. And yes, even this one. Back to the Espn spot. It doesn.t feature any new footage from the movie. It leans on the chemistry between Efron and Rogen, and allows them to play off of Rodgers, who.s actually a charismatic screen presence. You probably have seen his State Farm commercials. He »

Anna Paquin's Rogue Will Appear In X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Other Cameos Planned

2 hours ago

Yo, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, quit playing games with our hearts. You said Rogue wasn't in your movie. But why did you give her a magazine cover, yo? And why does she keep popping up in trailers? What's the story with Rogue? Is Rogue in your movie? Don't fool around now. We need our Rogue. According to those wacky cats at BuzzFeed, Rogue is back in. When the site spotted her in the credits for the new film in yesterday's trailer, they poked around at Fox and confirmed Anna Paquin's return. Rogue fans will have to be satisfied that her role is "essentially, a cameo." So that probably means she doesn't do all the flying and super-strength stuff from the comics. Bummer, comic fans. There's a real shortage of comic characters on film who fly and have super strength. A little more details are shined through via Vulture. »

Liam Neeson Loses His Heart And Mind In The Third Person Trailer

3 hours ago

When it comes to writing, it.s easy for an author to draw inspiration on what (or, in some cases, who) they know from life. In other cases, it feels as if the piece that the author is writing is inspiring their life to take a similar direction. The difference between the two can either be funny or unsettling, and in the trailer for Third Person, it looks like they.ve opted to showcase the latter. Yahoo has the Domestic trailer, which looks like a well plotted thriller involving three plot lines that somehow intersect to dramatic effect. The main thread looks to be that of a writer (Neeson) in Paris, who.s working on a book with his mistress (Olivia Wilde) in tow, much to the chagrin of his wife (Kim Basinger). Now here.s where it gets interesting: that book seems to be the story of an artist »

Pierce Brosnan Doesn't Think He Was Very Good At Playing James Bond

4 hours ago

Sean Connery. George Lazenby. Roger Moore. Timothy Dalton. Pierce Brosnan. Daniel Craig. Those are the six men who have played James Bond. Now, mentally rank them in your head from best to worst. Done? Good. I can.t speak for you, but I can tell you a majority of people seem to put Connery and Craig at the top, Brosnan and Moore in the middle and Dalton and Lazenby on the bottom, except, apparently, Pierce Brosnan himself, who has no love whatsoever for what he did with the character. Speaking to The Telegraph, Brosnan admitted to having very serious insecurities about his own ability to handle the character, and despite being proud of the honor and appreciative of all the opportunities it gave to him, he apparently won.t even watch his Bond movies with his own children. It.s just too depressing. "I have no desire to watch myself »

Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly To Reunite For Border Guards

7 hours ago

There's a special kind of comedy magic that happens when you pair Will Ferrell with John C. Reilly. And fans of both have reason to rejoice as these two insanely funny performers are reuniting for Border Guards, an upcoming comedy from Adam McKay. Deadline reports Sony Pictures is backing the Gary Sanchez Productions picture, which will star Ferrell and Reilly as two dopey but eager buddies who aim to give their lives new meaning by protecting America's southern border from would-be trespassers. It's unclear if the pair would be official border guards (as the title suggests) or the volunteer kind you occasionally hear about in strange news stories. Regardless, things take a turn for these two when they find themselves across the border without identification. You know what that means: they have to sneak back into the U.S., evading the very authorities of which they are a part! While »

New Guardians Of The Galaxy Featurette Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Marvel's Sci-Fi Epic

14 hours ago

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier out in theaters, we've been spending a lot of time looking at the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - and that means thinking a lot about James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Continuing Marvel Studios' pattern of releasing two movies per year, the sci-fi epic is scheduled to hit theaters this summer, which means that the next few months will be filled with ll kinds of different previews, trailers and clips. Take today for example. Following the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that aired this evening, Marvel unveiled a new featurette for Guardians - and now that video has arrived online via Yahoo! I don't know if it's because the effects aren't ready to show off or what, but I must say that I am somewhat disappointed by the lack of any real new footage in this »

The Wolf Of Wall Street Honest Trailer Is Effing Brilliant

19 hours ago

The Wolf of Wall Street was one of 2013's biggest successes. It gained a ton of award nominations. It was Martin Scorsese's most profitable picture to date, and it was a damned fun time at the movies. If there was an Academy Award Nominee that the Internet Meme Machine latched onto with all of its love, support, and laughter, it was definitely this one. With that in mind, we come here this evening to honor The Wolf's greatest Internet honor yet. It's not the Gif of the sexy nursery scene. It's not the many GIFs with an Oscar being positioned outside of Leo's grasp through various struggles seen in the film. It isn't even that really funny video where someone dubbed old Bennihana commercials with audio from the film. It's the Friar's Club Roast of internet trailer reviews: The Screen Junkies' Honest Trailer. That's right, the people that love »

19 hours ago

Ride Along Blu-ray Comedian and actor Kevin Hart went from bit player to leading man over the last several months, starring in both Ride Along and About Last Night in a relatively short period of time. It.s the former that has made its way onto Blu-ray and DVD this week, telling a sort-of buddy cop story about a mysterious crime boss and cleaning up the streets of Atlanta. Ride Along follows good-guy security guard Ben (Kevin Hart), a recent enrollee in the police academy who happens to have a gorgeous, likeable girlfriend (Tika Sumpter) and an almost brother-in-law named James (Ice Cube) who hates Ben.s rapid-fire dialogue and bumbling demeanor. To make matters worse, James is a detective, and he offers to bring Ben around for a ride along to show him how ill-suited he would be as a police officer. Of course, in this breezy, lesson-filled narrative, »

Founded in 1974, the Icelandic Phallological Museum is home to over 280 specimens collected from every different kind of creature you can think of. Except for one: human. Even stranger, this open spot generated a race of sorts between two men who wished to be immortalized forever as the representation of the human penis in the museum. That bizarre story has been captured in the new documentary The Final Member, but in case that's not strange enough for you, you should check out it's limited edition Blu-ray/DVD contents.

Female Screenwriters Fare Better In Television Than Film.

22 hours ago

A major criticism of the Hollywood studio system has always been a lack of diversity when it comes to its protagonists and subject matter. In a world of reboots, copycats, and sequel prospects, the typical "white male protagonist" doesn't only recur, he dominates the marketplace. The same criticism can be made for who is hired to bring things to life on the creative end, particularly in the screenwriting sector. While it.s always been a general gripe that those conscious of such inequalities have always had, The Wrap.s coverage on the 2014 Writer.s Guild of America.s Hollywood Writers Report sheds a lot of light on just how much of a disparity there is between women and minority writers versus the status quo. This year.s report had one overarching message to its statistical analysis: Television is more open to female and minority voices by a surprising margin. In »

Michael Bay's Friday The 13th Reboot Looking At V/H/S Director

23 hours ago

Friday The 13th is getting rebooted. Again. You can thank (or rage at) Michael Bay, whose Platinum Dunes is resurrecting the slasher franchise for Paramount Pictures. While we've known about this project since last November, the latest development is that Bay and his fellow producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have nearly wrangled one of the directors of the horror anthology V/H/S to take the film's helm. The Wrap reports filmmaker David Bruckner has entered into negotiations to direct the Friday the 13th reboot. Bruckner is described as a "genre veteran" by The Wrap, but in truth he's worked on two horror features: V/H/S and The Signal, neither of which required him to helm the entire film by himself. Basically, Friday the 13th will mark Bruckner's feature directorial debut. Bruckner earned his first director credit in 2007 with the release of The Signal, a horror-thriller broken into »
