Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking Is Looking At The Perfect Directors

1 hour ago

Chris Pratt has a number of huge blockbusters listed as upcoming projects on his resume, including Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but certainly one of his most interesting upcoming movies is the comic book adaptation Cowboy Ninja Viking. Not only does the film have an absolutely ridiculous name, but it looks like it may be directed by two of the most interesting breakout filmmakers of 2014. News has come to us from Variety that Universal Pictures has entered early talks with David Leitch and Chad Stahelski to be the directors responsible for bringing Cowboy Ninja Viking to the big screen. While they may not be household names as filmmakers just yet, the two men made quite an impression last fall with the theatrical release of their directorial debut, John Wick. The Keanu Reeves-led film was seen my critics everywhere as one of the best action movies of the year, »

Star Wars Might Choose Michael Fassbender To Play Boba Fett

3 hours ago

While J.J. Abrams continues revving up for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards are busy working on their own spinoff films, to be released in the years between installments of the main trilogy. While Disney announced these projects a long time ago, however, they have yet to actually release any information regarding what they will be about. That being said, Boba Fett has been a long-rumored subject for one of the movies, and a new report circulating the web has put into the aether that the frontrunner for the part may be none other than Michael Fassbender. Take all of this with a grain of salt for the time being, because this story comes from a site called iKwiz and is still unconfirmed. The site claims to have heard from an inside source that Michael Fassbender of X-Men: Days of Future Past »

The Fantastic Four Reboot Pretty Much Rips Off Interstellar, Here's The Proof

3 hours ago

What.s the difference between the teaser trailers for The Fantastic Four and Interstellar? Not much apparently. That.s according to this new mash-up of the films' trailers, which proves just how similar they both are. Don.t believe me? Take a look for yourself. Eerie, huh? It.s also kind of awesome too. Mostly because Matthew McConaughey.s voice is so delightfully hypnotic that you can.t help but feel enchanted. Seriously, the man could probably talk off a eunuch. The fact that these trailers are so similar has actually caused a bit of reaction from old school Fantastic Four fans. They have criticized the first clip from Josh Trank.s impending blockbuster because of how dark and moody it looked. They believe that this is totally at odds with The Fantastic Four.s light and jovial aesthetic from the comics. Plus, most of them are still pretty annoyed »

Disney's Pete's Dragon Remake Just Got A Bit More Kickass

3 hours ago

The upcoming remake of the classic hybrid live-action/animated Disney film, Pete.s Dragon has just received a quick injection of awesomeness and badassery! In a bit of a casting swap, the film now adds the one and only Karl Urban. He will replace the recently-announced addition, Michael C. Hall. According to a scoop from The Wrap, Urban will join the cast consisting of young Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford for what will be a modernized take on the 1977 musical movie about a young boy.s friendship with a dragon with the unexplainable power to turn invisible, specifically around any adult that would believe he exists. There has been no reported reason given as of yet regarding what made Hall exit the project just over two weeks after he had been initially cast. As of yet, it is unknown what role Urban will play. Yet, »

The Badass Reason Why Jason Momoa Can't Wait To Be In The Justice League

4 hours ago

He had to keep quiet about it for the majority of last year, but now Jason Momoa can finally talk about his upcoming role as the DC Cinematic Universe.s Aquaman as much as he wants to. About 15 years after playing lifeguard Jason Loane on Baywatch: Hawaii, Momoa will be returning to the ocean as DC.s King of Atlantis. In addition to eventually leading his own film, the Game of Thrones and Red Road star will also be one of the main members of the Justice League, which would be exciting for any actor, but the role is especially important to Momoa for another reason—his family. Momoa explained to The Daily Beast how fortunate he is to have scored the role of the aquatic superhero not only as an actor supporting his family, but to finally have a role that his kids will actually be able to »

Jurassic World Reveals Its Terrifying New Dinosaur, See It Now

4 hours ago

Apparently the events of the first three Jurassic Park movies weren.t enough warnings, because the folks manning Isla Island in Jurassic World have created an even more fearsome, genetically enhanced dinosaur. We.ve only heard Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.s characters speak of it with the utmost fear in the Jurassic World trailer, but now the official site has unveiled our first look at the beast. Look at those chompers! According to details gleaned from JurassicWorld.com, this teaser photo is of the new dinosaur known as the Indominus Rex. As if this wasn't terrifying enough, his teeth are constantly regrowing themselves, as a shark's would. You can get a better sense of his shape with the official silhouette as well: As noted by the site, the Indominus' full form may look like the famous T-Rex, but it has distinct facial attributes that set it apart.

New Avengers 2 Trailer Packs An Awesome Punch

5 hours ago

When Joss Whedon.s The Avengers came out in 2012, it truly delivered on being a true action-packed blockbuster, and its sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, promises to not only live up to that legacy, but expand it. Need proof? Just check out all of the awesome action in this brand new TV spot: The two theatrical trailers that have been released over the past couple of months have certainly done a great job prepping us for all the epic battles, beat-downs and explosions that The Avengers: Age of Ultron will deliver on the big screen this summer, but it.s kind of amazing to see just how much of it is backed into this quick 30 second TV spot. Sure, the whole thing starts off a bit slow, with some single shots of various characters like Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Ultron »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Looks Much Cooler In Neon

5 hours ago

Have you ever wondered what the celebrated trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens would look like if it was put through a magic machine that transformed it into something seen gracing the side of a seedy hotel at night in the middle of 1980.s Miami? Me too! Thankfully, those of us with such eccentrically specific curiosities will have to wonder no longer. Check out this amazing redux of the trailer done completely in animated neon sprites! We.ve seen it done in Lego, witnessed its recreation in Grand Theft Auto V and even enjoyed the cheesy goodness as it was charmingly sweded. However, a digital animator going by the username, Neonardo, whose gif gallery is an absolute experience, would create this spectacular homage to the original reel, rejuvenated with pastel-pieced glowy-goodness. While the aphorism, "may The Force be with you" was seemingly replaced with "eat at Joe »

Film Critic Drops A Disgusting Porn Reference In The Middle Of His Strange Magic Review

7 hours ago

George Lucas. attempt at cornering the kid.s animated musical fairy tale market in Strange Magic was, unfortunately, a box-office tragedy for the legendary mind who gave us Star Wars. Its paltry performance financially was only compounded by the shellacking the film would receive from critics, generally dismissing the film as a bizarre, clunky mess of an affair. However, during a discussion of the film, one critic in particular, Ben Mankiewicz would evoke a comparison to "incest porn." Wha?...Huh? You have to give this a listen: So, just exactly How the idea of "incest porn" got juxtaposed to the children.s film Strange Magic you may wonder? Well, sitting down for a 3-person video review during web series, What The Flick?!, host Christy Lemire, along with Matt Atchity of Rotten Tomatoes, were also joined by the aforementioned Turner Classic Movie host and product of Hollywood royalty, Ben Mankiewicz.

The Maze Runner Gets The Middle Finger In This Honest Trailer

7 hours ago

The Maze Runner was always going to be rife for lampooning. Despite being resolutely entertaining the film is still pretty stupid and was clearly ordered to profit off the back of a number of other teenager-led dystopian franchises. That.s why it.s great to see that the good folks over at Honest Trailers have decided to tear into The Maze Runner with glee. Check out their downright entertaining thoughts on the film below. It.s the prefect way to brighten up your Thursday. The similarities between The Maze Runner and the likes of The Hunger Games and Divergent franchises are so striking it.s impossible not to be impressed with 20th Century Fox.s brazen decision to profit off their success. Not only are they all packed to the brim with young actors but each of their premises revolve around this infant posse struggling to survive in a dystopian »

Someone Died On The Set Of Martin Scorsese's New Movie Silence

9 hours ago

Just yesterday, a terrible tragedy occurred on set of Martin Scorsese's upcoming film, Silence, when a ceiling collapsed at the Chinese Culture and Movie Center during pre-production in Taiwan. The accident left two Taiwanese construction workers injured, and one pronounced dead at the hospital. Emergency services were called to the set directly after the accident, and officials say that the two men who survived suffered leg and head injuries. A building on the Cmpc Studios backlot had been deemed unstable, so an independent contractor had been hired to reinforce the structure and make it safe. Cmpc studios made a statement about the incident to The Hollywood Reporter saying: "Our studio was rented for the use of a production team. The production team has hired contractors to build sets, and the construction has led to an accident, injuring the contractors. The production team immediately reported the accident to the emergency services, »

Insurgent Super Bowl Commercial Is Super Trippy And Thrilling

9 hours ago

Ahead of Sunday's big game, the new Insurgent Super Bowl trailer has dropped online, featuring the return of Shailene Woodley as Portia de Rossi. (No, we're just kidding, but you can't help make the comparison given her new haircut.) As expected, the new footage is a total mind-bender, as Tris crashes through a glass wall to tackle Jeanine (Kate Winslet). But she quickly falls down a trippy rabbit hole and free falls towards the city. Check it out! MTV News debuted the latest Insurgent trailer, which will also air during the Super Bowl this Sunday. While it doesn't do well to reveal any more plot details, it'll no doubt rile up the fans of this popular franchise. We also can.t help but draw some Matrix comparisons here. Aside from the insane amount of CGI that.s happening here, the footage totes a slug that says, "She Is The One. »

Terminator Genisys' Super Bowl Commercial Has The Craziest Bus Stunt Ever

9 hours ago

Just as we'd promised, Terminator Genisys ramped up its promotional campaign with a Super Bowl spot that goes heavy on the existence of the original Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Instead of focusing on the titanic battle between two Arnolds, though, the spot leans heavily on footage from the previous trailer. Check out the Super Bowl TV spot below, days before the big game: Indeed, while the new spot doesn.t exactly shed any new light on anything substantive about the upcoming canon-correcting franchise-follow-up, it does contain a spectacularly memorable action sequence apparently set against the backdrop of a bright, sunny day on San Francisco.s Golden Gate Bridge. From the looks of things, Emilia Clarke.s Sarah Connor does no favors to the (however unfairly classified) reputation of female drivers when she flips the school bus that she.s driving for some reason into a spectacular gymnastic-like multi-revolution looping flip that »

Ted 2 Trailer Is Ridiculous And Inappropriate, Watch It Now

9 hours ago

The Ted 2 trailer is finally here, and just like you.d expect: it.s pretty raunchy. Though, not as raunchy as we know Seth MacFarlane can be. We thought Universal was gonna make a grand to-do and debut the first footage of the sequel during Super Bowl Sunday, but they dropped it a bit early. So, how.s about we actually learn what the hell is going on in Ted 2, yes? The Star Wars: Episode 7 trailer may have had Andy Serkis as a narrator, but the Ted 2 trailer has Sir Patrick Stewart, who.s been a longtime collaborator with MacFarlane. (He voices Stan.s boss Captain Bullock in American Dad.) So it already has at least one thing going for it. Prior to this footage, we knew that Amanda Seyfried was in the sequel and that Mila Kunis was expected to make at least a small appearance. »

Titanic: Someone Secretly Snuck Pcp Into The Cast And Crew's Food

9 hours ago

By this point, we.ve all seen Titanic. Some of you might regret watching James Cameron.s nautical epic. Others might regard Titanic as a perfect romantic-disaster flick that is only despised because of its success. Either way, the fact that the cast and crew of Titanic.s food was laced with Pcp during filming will probably make even the most fervent of naysayers contemplate re-watching the film. Some of you may already be aware of this tale. Back in 1996, over a year before Titanic landed in cinemas and instantly became a pop culture phenomenon, E! Online reported that the film crew.s lobster chowder was spiked with the drug. However, at the time, it was assumed that neither James Cameron nor any of Titanic.s major stars, which included Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and the one and only Billy Zane, were victims. However Bill Paxton has now come out »

Jesse Ventura Still Hates American Sniper's Main Character, Obviously

9 hours ago

Box-office juggernaut, American Sniper continues to be a politically divisive hot potato of a topic. However, there.s still one person out there for whom the film.s controversy is actually personal. Former Minnesota Governor, Jesse Ventura, who, last summer, won a libel lawsuit against the estate of the American Sniper himself, Chris Kyle (played by Bradley Cooper), is still not quite ready to bury the hatchet with the late real-life protagonist and will apparently not see the movie. Reportedly, the former actor and pro-wrestler is still out there in full feud mode regarding the subject of Kyle, seemingly promoting a WrestleMania match that we.ll never get to see. A hero must be honorable, must have honor. And you can.t have honor if you.re a liar. There is no honor in lying," Well, s**t just got real! Ventura would further dismiss the film.s perceived implications »

The Tomorrowland Trailer Teaser Will Hook You In 10 Seconds

9 hours ago

The latest teaser for Tomorrowland has just dropped and let's just say that it's taking the "minimalist" approach. Clocking in at only 10 seconds, you may find yourself thinking, "What could they possibly say in that short of time?" The answer is, "Enough to intrigue." Watch the trailer teaser for the film below and witness yourself being hooked in a mere 10 seconds. In the very brief clip by Disney, we see the shot of the mysterious T-branded button like object. "What if there was a place where nothing was impossible?" Those are the words of George Clooney (who plays Frank Walker in the film), heard as we see a young girl Casey Newton (played by Britt Robertson) as she touches the Tomorrowland emblem, briefly opening a portal seemingly into another dimension. She pulls her finger off and it appears not even a moment has passed in her present world. The young »

Tyrese Moves Closer To Playing Green Lantern

9 hours ago

We all know (or should know) by now that Fast and Furious and Transformers star Tyrese Gibson wants to be our new Green Lantern. He.s been campaigning hard for the role by riling up fans on social media, including posting incredible fan-made artwork of himself as the DC hero. The latest images he posted to Instagram, though, imply that he.s heading in the right direction to make this casting actually happen. And that direction is straight into the Warner Bros. studio. I don't talk..... I move..... #WB #GreenLanternMission Ein von Tyrese (@tyrese) gepostetes Foto am 28. Jan 2015 um 2:02 Uhr On Wednesday, Gibson posted a photo of him pulling into the Warner Bros. studio parking lot. "I don.t talk.I move," he wrote, accompanied with hashtags for the WB and Green Lantern. Overwhelming fan buzz and hardcore social media campaigning have paid off for other actors looking to »

The Hilariously Honest Reason Chadwick Boseman Gave For Wanting To Play A Superhero

11 hours ago

Chadwick Boseman may have recently won himself the coveted role of Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the 38-year-old actor doesn.t have a Golden Globe or an Oscar under his belt. After playing James Brown in Get On Up, his performance was one of those that got snubbed. But he.s not letting that get him down, because being a superhero is way better, according to him. The Santa Barbara Independent conducted an interview with Boseman and asked if he was worried about getting slighted by the Academy and HFPA. The short answer is that he.s not. The longer and more hilarious answer is this: When it comes down to it, I.d rather have an action figure than a Golden Globe. At least you can actually play with an action figure, whereas a Globe statuette would just be sitting atop your mantle pulling focus from »

Watch This Funny Trailer For Harry Potter, If Directed By Edgar Wright

11 hours ago

Have you ever thought what it would be like if Harry Potter was recut in the style of Edgar Wright.s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? The story about the "Boy Who Lived" does sort of have similar story elements to make this possible. There.s a love element, there are seven things that need to be squashed and there.s plenty of comic book-style action worthy of some graphic onomatopoeia. Well, some creative YouTube-r mashed both films together in one crazy cool video. Edgar Wright is a master of his craft, and replicating his style is no easy task. However, YouTube user The Unusual Suspect, the same guy who created that awesome Avengers-Watchmen mash-up, did a pretty stellar job. Much like how Scott Pilgrim was created, he blocked off some of the shots into comic book-style frames and used music, various camera angles and fast editing to bring life »
