Wonder Woman Will Set Up The Justice League For Zack Snyder

6 hours ago

We.ve known for some time that DC.s upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice involves much more than just the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel throwing down. It.s also going to introduce other members of their impending movie universe. A key one of these is Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, and though we don.t know anything substantial about her role, the director assures us that it is going to be a vital one, especially moving forward towards the Justice League movies. Talking to EW, director Zack Snyder, who also helmed Man of Steel in 2013, revealed that Wonder Woman is indeed going to be a lynchpin role. He said: She plays a super-important part. In a lot of ways, she.s the gateway drug to 
the rest of the
 Justice League. In all fairness, this quote doesn.t actually reveal how much Gadot and »

X-Men: Apocalypse Shows Us The Inside Of The Villain's Massive Tomb

8 hours ago

After millennia of slumber, Apocalypse will awaken next year in X-Men: Apocalypse to give the titular protagonists their greatest battle yet. In the meantime, we now have our first look at the mutant.s Egyptian resting place, where he.s been chilling as the world changes around him. Check it out!   .@XMenMovies #Apocalypse concept art of the villain's tomb is finally here: http://t.co/IKYes1Ft6Q pic.twitter.com/P66fy06lGW . Entertainment Weekly (@EW) July 3, 2015 This EW exclusive concept art shows of individuals breaking into Apocalypse.s tomb, marked by a hieroglyphic-covered pyramid in the center and a bust of a falcon (probably the god Horus) peering overhead. In the comics, Apocalypse has been alive for millennia but periodically puts himself in suspended animation. In X-Men: Apocalypse, I.m guessing that these intruders, whether they.re archaeologists or common grave robbers, inadvertently wake the lead villain up, »

Why Ava DuVernay Passed On Marvel's Black Panther

8 hours ago

It looks like we’re going to have to wait a while longer before we see either a woman or a person of color direct one of Marvel’s superhero movies. Selma director Ava DuVernay, who was the rumored frontrunner for the job on the upcoming Black Panther, has passed on the chance to helm a comic book movie. Talking to Essence, DuVernay did confirm that she met with Marvel about leading the big screen adaptation of the exploits of the hero king of the fictional African nation Wakanda, but decided not to take the gig. After using the Fourth of July to "declare her independence" from this rumor, she said: I'm not signing on to direct Black Panther. I think I’ll just say we had different ideas about what the story would be. Marvel has a certain way of doing things and »

This Kansas Town Loves Back To The Future Way More Than You Do

8 hours ago

So you think you.re a pretty big Back to the Future fan? That.s probably true. It.s a great movie, and maybe you only wear purple Calvin Klein underwear and drive a DeLorean outfitted with a custom-built Mr. Fusion replica. But no matter what, I think the Kansas city of Augusta has you beat as they officially changed their name to Hill Valley, the name of the fictional hometown of Marty McFly. Today, July 3, 2015, marks the 30th anniversary of Robert Zemeckis. beloved sci-fi adventure, and according to The Butler County Times-Gazette, which is a mouthful of a masthead, Augusta chose to rechristen itself as Hill Valley. At least for a time. While the change took effect at 12:01am, the name will revert back to Augusta at the stroke of midnight. Hopefully all 9200 resident superfans, as well as the rest of the world who hears about this awesome »

The Chips Reboot Is Going To Be A Lot Different Than You Expected

10 hours ago

In the modern era, in which all previously created material must be mined in order to produce a feature film, eventually you end up with some fairly oddball choices. When the news hit that the CHiPs reboot was moving forward many of us probably had the same feeling: Get ready for another comedy remake based on corny material. Well, we just got some new info on the movie and it looks we.re in for something completely different. In an interview with Collider, Michael Pena, who will play Frank "Ponch" Poncherello, spoke a bit about the tone the movie was going for, and it.s not comedy. He said:   It.s more like a Lethal Weapon where there.s a lot of action and what we wanted to do is if there.s any comedy that we do, it.s not like one-liners here and there, like we.re the »

Wait, Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Might Be A Comedy

11 hours ago

It’s always good to be reminded that The Hateful Eight is being released later this year. Because of all of the superhero flicks and sequels that between now and the release of Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, the western can sometimes get lost in the cinematic mist. But coming it is. Fans will eagerly devour Tarantino’s latest in droves, and when they do they’ll be surprised to learn that it’s a lot funnier than they imagined. That's according to the director himself.  Tarantino told Entertainment Weekly that The Hateful Eight is the "funniest snow Western" that has ever been created. But, at the same time, he also made sure to remind people that it will still be as bleak and gruesome as his other films. Tarantino insisted: I can definitely say that as bleak as our movie »

Conan O'Brien Took Women To Magic Mike Xxl And It Was Hilariously Awkward

11 hours ago

Channing Tatum's Magic Mike Xxl is a movie that is geared toward a...specific audience. This can lead the rest of us to wondering exactly what does go on in those movies. Luckily, we have intrepid explorers like Conan O'Brien who are willing to venture into parts unknown so that the rest of us may remain safe. He took several of his female staffers on an outing to see the film and the result was fantastic, and also terrible. The evening begins with drinks at the apartment of Conan.s own personal assistant, where everybody was meeting for the evening, and a discussion of the various attributes of several of the film.s stars, including Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello. Conan then makes his own attempt at the "floor hump," a move we have on good authority is well represented in the movie. After dinner at the aptly named »

Batman And Superman's Fight In Dawn Of Justice, Described

11 hours ago

It.s no secret what.s going to happen when Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.s titular protagonists meet next year: they.ll be throwing down in fisticuffs. As we saw from the teaser trailer, Batman is one of Superman.s many critics, and fearing that the Kryptonian poses a danger to humanity, will take matters into his own hands and try to take down Earth.s alien adoptee. Although partly inspired by the graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns (just look at Batman.s high-tech armor), Warner Bros. has been keeping a tight lid on what this brawl will look like, but now we have a better idea of how intense this conflict will be. Director Zack Snyder showed off parts of the fight to EW (found via Heroic Hollywood) in his Pasadena editing bay. Described as "early passes of the money sequence," the scenes featured the two »

Back To The Future 2 Almost Included An Old West Scene

12 hours ago

The Back to the Future franchise celebrates a milestone birthday today with the 30th anniversary of the first film.s release. Appropriately enough, some interesting food for thought has surfaced about its sequel, revealing a possible alteration in the timeline of movie history. It seems that the already-packed Back to the Future Part II was supposed to have taken the time-bending action to the old west. Back to the Future franchise co-writer/producer Bob Gale provided HitFix some intriguing historical artifacts previously unseen by the public in the form of his early handwritten notes for the then-upcoming sequel. According to the notes, dated April 1, 1986, besides a visit to the future and a revisit to 1955, Marty McFly.s eventual dilemma in 1990.s Back to the Future Part III of being stuck in the old west without gasoline for the DeLorean was actually planned to occur in the second film.

What Steve Wozniak Actually Thinks Of The Steve Jobs Trailer

12 hours ago

Biographical films are always walking something of a tightrope (even when they don.t actually involve tightropes). On the one hand they have to tell the true story about what happened to their subject, or they.re not very good biographies. On the other hand, they have to tell interesting, or exciting stories, or they won.t make for very good movies. When it comes to the upcoming film Steve Jobs, if you want to get an idea on how accurate the film is, you go to the next best source, Jobs. partner Steve Wozniak. Woz was interviewed by Bloomberg and asked how much the film.s first trailer appears to resemble reality. His response, while not a glowing endorsement, is about all the movie could ask for at this stage of the game. He said: The lines I heard spoken were not things I would say but carried the »

Man Of Steel 2 Almost Had A Completely Different Villain

12 hours ago

Rumors regarding the villains for Man Of Steel 2 have been circulating since before Man Of Steel was even released. The likes of Doomsday, Brainiac and Metallo have all been linked to the blockbuster at some point or another, and it now turns out that there was just cause for fans to think the latter duo were going to be involved. Because they almost were.  Zack Snyder made this admission to Entertainment Weekly, via Comic Book Movie, for the publication.s on-set visit, explaining that during their early discussions for where to take the DC universe, it was suggested that John Corben.s villainous alter-ego should be feature. Snyder admitted: I remember talking about, .What.s the next villain? We can.t do another alien invasion.. Brainiac was definitely down the road. Metallo, I think, was going to be the main bad guy of this movie. Metallo and Brainiac are »

Magic Mike 3 In 3D? Here's What Joe Manganiello Says

12 hours ago

Magic Mike Xxl is off to a fast start at the box office. As we reported earlier, the sequel out-earned Terminator: Genisys on their shared opening day. And box office analysts are predicting a healthy holiday-weekend haul for Channing Tatum and the boys. So you can forgive us if we.re already looking ahead to a third adventure with Mike and his band of road-tripping strippers. So is Collider, it seems, as they sat down with Magic Mike Xxl co-star Joe Manganiello and inquired about the possibility of a third Magic Mike movie. Specifically, they wanted to know if a 3D version of Magic Mike was possible, to which Manganiello replied: If I was a gambling man, I would say odds are that we are going 3D." It makes too much sense not to try it. Major motion pictures . especially those released in the summertime . invest in the extra 3D »

Read The Touching Letter Arnold Schwarzenegger Wrote To A Sick Terminator Fan

13 hours ago

Arnold Schwarzenegger will always be associated with The Terminator, the role that helped make him famous back in 1984. But people forget that the massive movie star is also a politician, a humanitarian, and a skilled people person . traits that have helped to keep him in the public eye for decades. When you read a story like this one, though, you are reminded of what Schwarzenegger, the total package, is able to accomplish, and it.s going to warm your heart. Reddit user bizzjay (via THR) shared an incredible story of an interaction he and his father had with Arnold Schwarzenegger over the Internet. Bizzjay and his dad are huge Terminator fans, but a mental-health issue had prevented the father from attending movies recently. He agreed, however, to go see Terminator: Genisys with his son, though, knowing how important the sequel was to both men. The way the man recounts it, »

What Is John Connor's Role In Future Terminator Movies?

14 hours ago

Warning: Spoilers for Terminator Genisys are in play below. If you have not seen the film yet, please bookmark this page and come back after you've seen the film. For the entire run of the Terminator franchise, the bedrock of the story has always been the fact that one day, John Connor would rise to rule humanity's resistance against Skynet. He was the ultimate victor in the war against the machines, and the one target Skynet kept sending agents back in time to destroy. Of course, that's all changed now thanks to the new version of Skynet we see in Terminator: Genisys. Thanks to the alternate universe Skynet, colloquially known as "Alex" if you go by the entry on IMDb, John Connor is now the bane to humanity's existence, as he is now partnered with/controlled by Skynet itself. Which raises the ultimate question in the new Terminator franchise: what »

The ramp up to Roland Emmerich.s Independence Day: Resurgence, the sequel to 1996.s Independence Day, officially is underway. This time next year, original stars Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox and Bill Pullman will be fending off a new alien invasion, and Fox has begun prepping audiences for what they are going to see on screen.

Marvel May Have Another Big Hit On Their Hands With Ant-Man

2 July 2015 5:31 PM, PDT

If you.ve been paying attention to the movie world at all over the last few years, you already know that Marvel has had a solid run as of late. They have two of the top five grossing movies of all time, and three of the top ten, and while it probably won.t reach quite that high, their next endeavor, Ant-Man, looks like it is on track to be yet another big hit. Ant-Man may be tiny, but he packs quite a wallop, and while the film is on a smaller scale than the likes of Avengers: Age of Ultron and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War (where Ant-Man also appears), the movie is also on track to pack quite a punch. According to The Hollywood Reporter, tracking services predict the movie could earn as much as $65 million over the course of its opening weekend. While there is humor »
