This Week In Home Entertainment: Godzilla, Spartacus Complete Series And More

16 September 2014 6:57 PM, PDT

Godzilla Blu-ray Godzilla has a long and storied history on the big screen, and has been responsible for some memorable movie moments along with some dull ones. Gareth Edwards. 2014 Godzilla blockbuster is not without problems, but it mostly lands itself firmly in the former camp. After a compelling opening sequence, we get the story. Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is a member of the Us Navy and has a fancy title that basically means he.s good with explosives. Early on, he heads to Japan to get his dad, Joe (Bryan Cranston), out of trouble with the law after a trespassing charge. Instead, the two become embroiled in a mystery surrounding a giant winged creature known as the Muto and a second creature known as Godzilla, who also happen to be natural enemies.

See Patrick Stewart Make A Very Sick Young Trekkie.s Dream Come True

16 September 2014 6:32 PM, PDT

Earlier this month, Patrick Stewart made a touching visit to a young Trekkie who suffers from a debilitating illness, and in the process reduced the rest of the world to tears with his life-affirming antics. Dawn Garrigus, who hails from Statesboro Georgia, is a preposterously brave 11-year-old who has been diagnosed with mitochondrial disease, a progressive chronic illness that causes physical, mental and developmental disabilities. She also happens to be a bona-fide Trekkie of the highest order. As a Star Trek nut, through the Make-a-Wish foundation Dawn asked if she could attend Dragon Con, a sci-fi and fantasy convention that is held in Georgia on a yearly basis over the Labour Day weekend. Dawn.s reason for visiting the event was because a special panel for Star Trek: The Next Generation had been scheduled, and she pined to learn more about her favorite TV series. Cue Patrick Stewart, who starred »

Star Wars' C-3Po Demanded These 2 Things From J.J. Abrams Before Signing His Contract

16 September 2014 3:32 PM, PDT

Just like Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, actor Anthony Daniels is an incredibly important part of the Star Wars legacy. He's just slightly handicapped by the fact that you can't see his face under the C-3Po helmet. He and Kenny Baker, the man inside R2-D2, are the only actors to be part of every single film, so when Star Wars: Episode VII started to move into active development, it made perfect sense that they would return. The big question that was raised, however, was whether Daniels would once again be inside his C-3Po costume, as he always has been in the movies, or would instead be opting to use motion capture or simply provide his voice. According to the actor, it was never actually a choice. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Anthony Daniels opened up about the process that led to him being »

Transformers 5: What We Know So Far

16 September 2014 2:47 PM, PDT

Michael Bay.s Transformers: Age of Extinction was meant to be the start of a new trilogy. Gone were Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox, replaced by Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor. And with Bay behind the "wheel" of this massive sequel, the fourth Transformers movie did what previous Transformers movies have done: disappointed critics while earning boatloads of money. Despite the fact that the formula continues to work, Paramount has promised sweeping changes for the Transformers franchise by the time Transformers 5 rolls into theaters. Since massive pieces already are moving into place on the upcoming sequel, we figured now was a great time to get the lay of the land and catch you up on everything we know about the ongoing cinematic battle between the Autobots, the Decepticons, and mankind. Michael Bay Love him or hate him, Michael Bay has been the face of the Transformers franchise, »

The latter, who plays the villainous Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is actually playing the singer-songwriter in an upcoming biopic called I Saw The Light, and now news has come that the former, the God of Thunder himself, will be seeing hallucinations of the great cowboy crooner in his newest project.

Here.s What Hawkeye And Black Widow.s Hideous Baby Looks Like

16 September 2014 12:55 PM, PDT

Have you ever wondered what Hawkeye and Black Widow.s baby would look like? Of course you have. Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson are two preposterously good-looking people who sizzled with chemistry throughout Joss Whedon.s 2012 blockbuster, The Avengers. Well, here's your answer: Check out that ungodly image that Jeremy Renner recently uploaded to his Twitter account. When Renner unleashed the nauseating picture on his 81,000 followers, he did so alongside the caption: "Hawkeye and Widow? Widow and Hawkeye??? Hmmm. #iftheyhadababy #widow #hawkeye." There is just something unsettling and innately gross about seeing Renner as Clint Barton wearing what appears to be a mask of Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow face. However, if you.re able to take your eyes away from the truly terrifying, yet oddly hypnotic, coagulation of two beautiful Avengers, then you.ll also realize that it gives us a pretty good look at Hawkeye.s attire for »

Tom Hiddleston Is Here To Save The King Kong Franchise

16 September 2014 12:49 PM, PDT

When it comes to screen presence, few actors nowadays can compete with the power of Tom Hiddleston. Just look at his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: playing Loki, he is meant to be second fiddle to the likes of Thor and The Avengers, but he's walked away from all three of his features as one of the most buzzed about elements. That screen presence will definitely be coming in handy soon, because before too long the star is going to be sharing the screen with a cinematic legend who also happens to be a giant gorilla. Legendary Pictures has officially announced that Tom Hiddleston will be the star of Skull Island, the King Kong-related project announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and, what's more, the studio has also found a filmmaker to helm it. Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who made his feature debut last year with the critically beloved »

Why Ant-Man Is Going To Play A Huge Role In Avengers 2

16 September 2014 11:54 AM, PDT

What's in a name? It's a question we often hear asked, and more often hear answered. In the case of a Marvel Studios film, a name is a lot of things. It's a promise of a very specific adventure that sets the tone and tells us who to expect to see on the big screen for the years to come. A title like The Avengers: Age Of Ultron promises all of that and then some in its title -- and once it dropped, there was one important link to Marvel comic history that fans assumed would fall into the "then some" category: the introduction of Ant-Man, and the creator of Ultron himself, Hank Pym. Unfortunately for some, this was denied by Age Of Ultron writer/director Joss Whedon from the beginning, as he stated that he was, "...crafting [his] own version of it where [Ultron's] origin comes more directly from »

This Is How Disney Sunk David Fincher's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

16 September 2014 10:48 AM, PDT

As one of modern American cinema.s greatest directors, you can.t help but get excited when David Fincher starts work on a new project. Unfortunately, for all the Fincher-aholics out there, it looks as though his proposed remake of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea has hit a snag after he revealed that his casting choices for the nautical epic have forced Disney to reconsider the film. During a rather incredible chat David Fincher had with Little White Lies, which saw the Social Network and Fight Club filmmaker discuss a wide variety of cinematic topics, Fincher was asked if he.d ever had a mega, multi-million dollar blockbuster offered to him. After at first insisting, "I don.t think anyone would come to me with a money-is-no-object proposition," Fincher then recalled how he had been ready to go out to Australia to film a remake of the 1954 Disney adventure, 20,000 Leagues »

Star Wars 7's Villain Is Probably An Evil X-Wing Pilot, Here's Why

16 September 2014 10:45 AM, PDT

Given the amount of secrecy J.J. Abrams prefers to have on and around his movie sets, Star Wars: Episode VII has been an open book. Ok, that.s a slight exaggeration. But between director videos filmed on location, Bad Robot tweets with hidden messages, Kevin Smith.s blubbery set visit and the steady stream of leaked set photos, we know a lot more about Star Wars: Episode VII than anticipated. Still, how much of it is true? Consider this photo (via Badass Digest) of what appears to be Star Wars: Episode VII actor Adam Driver walking on set wearing the trademark suit of an X-Wing pilot. We knew that X-Wing ships would be involved in Episode VII. But the fact that Driver is appearing as a character who would be flying one changes Everything that we thought we knew about J.J. Abrams. planned sequel. What do we believe »

The Vindictive Reason A Key Amazing Spider-Man 2 Actor Will Never Watch The Film

16 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT

Critics of Marc Webb.s The Amazing Spider-man 2 complain that the sequel was overstuffed, with characters who didn.t get proper treatment because they had to be shuffled along to serve a larger mythology . the OsCorp narrative. Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) often are cited as significant characters who were shortchanged by the sequel.s pacing. I, however, wanted to know more . a Lot more . about Ravencroft.s mad scientist, Dr. Kafka, who appeared to have a significant role until most of his footage ended up on the cutting room floor. And the actor who played him is annoyed by this. While attending the Toronto International Film Festival, I interviewed Marton Csokas, the actor who played Dr. Kafka in Marc Webb.s second Spider-Man film. The demented doctor, as you may recall, had two noteworthy scenes in the movie . one where he interrogates Foxx.s Electro »

Matthew McConaughey Walks On Distant Planets For New Interstellar Poster

16 September 2014 5:53 AM, PDT

Few films have generated more interest than Christopher Nolan.s Interstellar, the filmmaker.s first feature since departing from the Batman universe. Fewer films have been more shrouded in secrecy, too, but today we at least get to take a look at the newest poster for upcoming sci-fi epic. Empire scored the exclusive reveal of the newest one sheet, which features star Matthew McConaughey geared up in his spacesuit while walking across an icy and inhospitable landscape. The image was featured in a previous Empire piece on the film, and Nolan liked it so much he decided to turn it into a poster. While it feels like we get almost minute-by-minute updates on everything happening on the sets of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars: Episode VII, Nolan has managed to keep things very quiet with Interstellar. We.re roughly two months away from the film.s »

The Weird, Futuristic Technology The Avatar Sequels May Use

16 September 2014 5:13 AM, PDT

Filmmaker James Cameron loves creating and using state of the art technology to make his films. The Terminator director was one of the driving forces behind the re-emergence of 3D, taking technology that was once regarded as gimmicky and making it a mainstay of modern blockbusters. He.s also been a huge proponent of making films at a higher framerate . and there.s currently nothing out there that.s bigger and better than Douglas Trumbull.s Magi process for achieving that goal. Could Cameron.s Avatar sequels take advantage of this new tech and make it mainstream? This is the question raised in a THR piece on Trumbull. The inventor reports that he.s spoken with Avatar producer Jon Landau about getting Cameron to view Ufotog, a short film designed to show off the new tech. So, what is Magi? It.s basically a system that shows films in 3D »

Matt Damon Will Probably Return As Jason Bourne

15 September 2014 5:08 PM, PDT

When Matt Damon decided to walk away from the Jason Bourne franchise, it was for one very simple reason: he didn't want to make the movies without director Paul Greengrass involved, and Greengrass decided he was satisfied with the work that he had put into the series. Universal Pictures has moved on, making The Bourne Legacy with Tony Gilroy directing and Jeremy Renner starring, but now it looks like it won't be long until the original star returns. Variety's sources have informed them that both Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are now in early negotiations to come back for another installment in the Bourne franchise. The article doesn't explain why the actor and the filmmaker are thinking about changing their minds, only that it is actually happening. One important factor could simply be time, as it has been a full seven years since the release of The Bourne Ultimatum in »
