Even Steven Spielberg Is Afraid Of Opening A Movie Opposite Star Wars: Episode 8

1 hour ago

With the release of the seventh installment, we learned that Star Wars is still a bonafide cultural powerhouse. You probably guessed as much from the $2 billion-and-counting worldwide box office haul for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but that far, far away galaxy still has some fan cache. But so does Steven Spielberg. His most recent film, Bridge of Spies, may not have been a juggernaut, but it.s up for a Best Picture Oscar later this month. Still, even the master is wary of going head-to-head with Star Wars. Originally slated to open in March of 2017, the Rian Johnson-directed Star Wars: Episode VIII is set to continue the saga, but needing a script rewrite, it was pushed back to December 15 of that year. Steven Spielberg.s next movie, an adaptation of Ernest Cline.s novel Ready Player One, was scheduled for that same day, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, »

2 hours ago

Fans of the Horror movie genre know one thing for certain: it’s never really over. Whether it’s a remake, reboot, or just another sequel, horror franchises always find a way to come back after their “final” installment. This trend has proved itself to to continue with one of the more modern additions to the genre: The Saw franchise.

2 hours ago

Why Will Smith Isn't In Independence Day: Resurgence, According To Will Smith

3 hours ago

While most of the gang is getting back together for the long-awaited sequel to Independence Day, one star who will not be making his return is Will Smith. Not only will his character of Captain Steven Hiller not be seen in the movie, Roland Emmerich has already gone and killed the character off screen, meaning that we won’t see him in any other sequels, either. Now Will Smith has opened up about the decision to not reprise his role. It turns out it wasn’t that he didn’t want to be in the movie, but rather that he just didn’t have the time. Will Smith sat down for an interview with BBC Radio One and was asked about the upcoming Independence Day: Resurgence. He told host A.Dot that his decision to not return had nothing to do with any lack of interest, »

Someone Edited The Captain America: Civil War Trailers In Chronological Order And It's Awesome

3 hours ago

The Captain America: Civil War teaser trailer has been keeping fans satisfied since last November, but during the Super Bowl this past Sunday, Marvel gave fans a new 30-second TV spot to chew on. With two previews now available, one fan has decided to edit them together so that we can see how the May blockbuster unfolds chronologically. Take a look! The specially-edited Captain America: Civil War trailer, put together by YouTuber Johnny B2K, kicks off with Captain America, Falcon and Black Widow battling armed goons at the Ifid, a.k.a. the Institute for Infectious Diseases. While these operatives are presumably unsuccessful with their mission, it appears there.s some collateral damage during the encounter. Things only get worse following an explosion at what looks like the United Nations and Bucky strangely trying to shoot Tony Stark. Concerning the latter, Steve Rogers is able to find Bucky (like »

3 hours ago

Rather excitingly, we.re now just a few days away from the release of Deadpool. Obviously, die-hard fans are on tenterhooks to see if the Ryan Reynolds led adaptation can actually match the beloved comic-book version, while other moviegoers are just looking forward to watching another superhero film. But it turns out there.s another reason to anticipate Deadpool. Ryan Reynold has a nude tussle with Ed Skrein.s villain. While there are a lot of moviegoers out there who will be particularly intrigued to see this battle in all of its glory, Ryan Reynolds has now admitted to Yahoo Movies that filming the sequence was far from enjoyable. In fact, he revealed that it saw him and Ed Skrein become a little over familiar with each other.s bodies. There.s nothing else you can do except to just grin, bear it, and go, .All right guys, we.re »

How Jason Bourne Will Connect To The Previous Bourne Movies

3 hours ago

On Super Bowl Sunday we finally learned what the newest entry in the Bourne franchise would be called. While the title Jason Bourne may have be a little wanting in the creativity department, the TV ad spot was not lacking for all the action we expect to see come from the super spy series. But it.s been quite a long time since we.ve seen Jason Borne in action. What kind of state will he be in when we meet him again? Now the actor who plays him is finally beginning to open up a little on the details. When last we saw Jason Bourne in The Bourne Ultimatum, the character had finally remembered everything that was missing in his memory when we first came across him in the first film. While that might seem to be the closest thing to a happily ever after as Jason Bourne would »

The X-Men Team Ryan Reynolds Wants To See On Screen Next

4 hours ago

After a less-than-pleasing turn as Green Lantern in 2011, Ryan Reynolds has finally found his superhero calling as Deadpool.the real deal, not the pale imitation from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The actor has said on many occasions that the Merc with a Mouth is the only character he wants to play anymore, and if early Deadpool reviews are any indication, he.ll get more opportunities to do so. However, beyond more Deadpool adventures, there.s another faction of the X-Men universe that Reynolds would also like to finally see on the big screen: X-Force. While discussing Deadpool with Filmstarts, Reynolds mentioned how there.s more aspects of the X-Men mythology that can be added to the movies, and X-Force is high on his wish list. He explained: There.s so much material to mine in just the X-Men universe . In the future, if we.re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, »

Samuel L. Jackson Was Almost Arrested When He Was Shooting Pulp Fiction

4 hours ago

Race has always been a difficult issue in America. Recently, with the announcement of an entirely white acting slate for the Academy Awards the issue of race has been a major conversation in Hollywood. For many actors, however, it has been a daily issue that they have always had to deal with. Samuel L. Jackson has recently opened up about an experience he had while filming Pulp Fiction, when the man who was on the verge of becoming a household name, was nearly arrested. According to Jackson, he was on a long break from filming Pulp Fiction as they had finished the scenes in the diner, and were going to be focused on scenes he wasn.t in for a while.

The Nsfw Thing Zoolander 2 Tried To Get Laura Bush To Do

5 hours ago

One of the most fun things about the first Zoolander film was all of the great cameo scenes that were included. Everybody from David Bowie to Donald Trump had a moment last time around. Now with Zoolander 2 we are preparing ourselves for an entirely new cast of cameo characters. However, there is one famous person that you won.t see in the film: former first lady Laura Bush, and that.s probably a good thing. If we had seen the wife of President George W. Bush in the new film we would have seen her in what possibly would have been the most bizarre cameo ever caught on film, as one of several people involved in an orgy with Hansel. Ben Stiller explained the situation to Matt Lauer on Today though he was a bit more circumspect about the details. There is a group of people that Hansel, Owen's character, »

One Movie Is Brave Enough To Compete Against Star Wars: Rogue One

5 hours ago

After years as a laughing stock, the Star Wars universe has once again returned to claim its rightful place at the top of the Hollywood hierarchy. As such, not too many upcoming films have an active desire to compete with an entry in the Star Wars saga; it's a suicide mission very few have an interest in. However, it turns out that one movie seems to have the gumption to stand up to the Star Wars: Rogue One release, and it’s a movie fronted by the type of actor who can handle a suicide mission. A new report from Variety indicates that Will Smith’s upcoming drama Collateral Beauty has officially been slapped with a December 16 release date. This means it will go toe to toe with Star Wars: Rogue One at the box office. When we say that Collateral Beauty is brave for taking on »

How Cartoons Inspired Johnny Depp As He Created Captain Jack Sparrow

5 hours ago

It.s a well-established fact that much of Johnny Depp.s performance as Captain Jack Sparrow was influenced by Rolling Stone.s guitarist Keith Richards. It turns out that.s not the only place where Depp found inspiration for the character. He recently told an audience that the character owes as much to the Looney Toons as it does to the aging rock and roller. Johnny Depp recently received the Maltin Modern Master Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival and sat down for an extended interview with famed critic Leonard Maltin. According to Depp, his decision to take on the role of Captain Jack Sparrow for Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl was one of the quickest decisions he ever made. The reason for this, as written in Variety, is because he.d spent much of the previous three years watching cartoons with his new daughter. »

Look At The Damage Black Panther Did To Captain America's Shield

6 hours ago

We knew that the Black Panther, one of the newest members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was going to be a problem for Captain America and Bucky in this summer’s Captain America: Civil War. What we couldn’t guess was how dangerous a threat he actually would be. An eagle eye has noticed that Captain America’s shield, made of one of the strongest materials in the MCU, has actually seen some damage, and we’re pretty sure it wasn’t from Wolverine. Check out this image from the recent Super Bowl TV spot. As can be clearly seen here, there are five vertical scratches coming down from the top of Cap’s shield. As the the folks over at Heroic Hollywood, who first noticed the scratches, point out, that’s almost certainly a Black Panther right handed claw that did that »

Deathstroke As A Future DC Films Villain? Here's What We Know

6 hours ago

The CW's Arrow has become one of the most beloved superhero TV shows of all time in just four short years. However, as good as the show has recently become, it still can’t compare to the glory of its second season. One major reason for that particular season’s success was the ample use of Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson a.k.a Deathstroke. Many fans have clamored for Deathstroke to return to Arrow, but it looks like DC has bigger and better plans for the iconic character.   When asked on Tumblr about the potential for characters like Deathstroke or Walter Steele to return to Arrow at some point in the near future, Arrow Executive Producer had this to say: The character of Slade Wilson is currently tied up in another DC project. Walter is more likely. That statement is as vague as it »

The 5 Most Insane Things Inside This Year's Oscar Gift Bags

When an actor says "it.s an honor just being nominated," we now have a much better idea of exactly what they mean. Every year, the nominees for the Academy Awards' acting and directing categories receive the most extravagant swag bag known to man. What.s included in this year.s bag of goodies has now been revealed and, to say the least, Leonardo DiCaprio and company are making out like bandits.

The Divergent Series Just Suffered A Major Setback

18 hours ago

Way back when Lionsgate was planning its slate for the roll out of The Divergent Series, they thought that following the current pattern of breaking their finale into two parts was a good idea. Tonight though, it seems that idea has bitten them where they sit, as director Robert Schwentke has officially dropped out of the director's chair for The Divergent Series: Ascendant. The item was broken by Deadline, who added that while the director of both last year's Insurgent and this year's Allegiant entries into the Divergent series has left the building, it's not on bad terms. The official company line is that Schwentke "just needed a break" after helming two entries back to back. Which, naturally, has us thinking about whether this report is as truthful as it says it is. Granted, directing one film is a handful, and directing two in a row for a yearly franchise »

Lupita Nyong'o May Team Up With Ava DuVernay For A Sci-Fi Thriller, Get The Details

19 hours ago

This past December, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o got to take up the out of this world role of Maz Kanata, an enigmatic ally of the light side in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While that role was a product of motion capture, Nyong'o injected so much soul and eccentricity into her performance that you could believe she was an ancient alien. Which is a good thing, considering she might be playing someone not of this Earth in Ava DuVernay's Intelligent Life. The newly talked about project boasts a who's who of talent, as the item from The Hollywood Reporter would have us believe. The script was penned by the Jurassic World team of Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, as it was adapted from a script they'd previously completed entitled The Ambassador. Meanwhile, DuVernay's name has found itself attached as a possible directorial candidate, with A Wrinkle In Time »

The latest rumor suggests that Obi Wan Kenobi will be back to guide a new generation of Jedi, and he'll do so as a Force ghost.  Naturally, this report is a rumor, and even the original tweet from Kristian Harloff, via Making Star Wars, warns folks that this item is up in the air.

Two Classic Deadpool Characters That Were Cut From The Script, And Why

21 hours ago

Unlike some other comic book movies, Tim Miller.s Deadpool is a film that stays very close to the tone and look of its source material, and includes many of the great supporting characters that circulate in and out of the Merc With The Mouth.s life. This is a list that includes Weasel (T.J. Miller), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) and Ajax (Ed Skrein). The movie is pretty great in this respect (particularly for fans), but I recently learned that the big screen adventure nearly feature two more key individual.s from Deadpool.s history: Patch and Dr. Emrys Killebrew. It was during an in-depth interview with Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick last week that I learned this interesting bit of trivia about the film, which should perk the ears of everyone who knows and loves Deadpool from the comics (especially the long, early »
