Guardians Of The Galaxy Has Hit A Huge Box Office Milestone

1 hour ago

Marvel Studios has firmly established itself as one of the biggest - if not the biggest - brands in Hollywood. After six years of releasing movies, the company has not only made two of the highest grossing films of all time - Joss Whedon's The Avengers and Shane Black's Iron Man 3 - but also has proven able to take a property that nobody has ever heard of and turn it into gold. Guardians of the Galaxy had more than its fair share of detractors when it was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, but now that particular project has made more than half a billion dollars at the global box office and can be called the biggest hit domestically of the summer season. The numbers are in, and at the time of this article's publication, Box Office Mojo says that James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy »

Oprah Winfrey To Play Lady Pimp In Richard Pryor Biopic

1 hour ago

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been spending more time on the big screen lately, with roles in such high-prestige pics like Lee Daniels' The Butler and the upcoming Civil Rights docudrama Selma. But for her next film, she's going downright gritty. TMZ reports Oprah Winfrey has been cast to play a brothel-running madam in the biopic about the late Richard Pryor. But this is no common lady pimp role. Winfrey is set to portray a very pivotal figure in the young Pryor's life. That would be none other than the iconic and crass comedian's grandmother, Marie Carter. After Pryor's mother abandoned him at the age of ten, the boy went to live with his father's mother in Peoria, Illinois. There, little Pryor grew up in a brothel. Let's take a moment to let that settle in...Okay? Pryor's widow Jennifer Lee told TMZ that Oprah Winfrey has been eager to »

Do DC Comics Movies Have A 'No Jokes' Policy?

2 hours ago

Marvel movies rely on their humor, and their cavalier attitude. Man of Steel, as a counterbalance, did not. Star-Lord, Chris Pratt's Guardians of the Galaxy hero, cracks jokes. In Christopher Nolan.s world, Bane cracked Batman.s spine. It.s not an easy divide between Marvel and DC movies to say that one side drifts toward light while the other embraces the shadows. Step back and look at the big picture, though, and this appears to be one crucial way to categorize the cinematic universes that are developing on screen between the rival studios. Now, one interesting report says that this is by design. Drew McWeeny at HitFix writes an engaging column about the alleged "No jokes" policy that is in place at Warner Bros. as the studio builds its DC universe off of the success of Zack Snyder.s Man of Steel. This is an important time for »

Daniel Radcliffe Shows His Dark Side In New Horns Trailer

3 hours ago

Following up on the new trailer for the feature adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns comes the international trailer, which takes a different approach in terms of the tone of the film. While the trailer that released at Comic-Con showed off a mixture of humor and horror, this one takes it to full horror and suspense, as we see Daniel Radcliffe getting in touch with his dark side... Directed by Alexandre Aja, based on Joe Hill's book, Horns stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish, a man living in the aftermath of his girlfriend Merrin's murder. Everyone thinks he did it, and to add to that, Ig wakes up one day with a set of horns, which give him the ability to draw people's darkest thoughts and desires from them. It's a useful gift to have if you're trying to figure out who murdered your girlfriend, but as you can see in »

Ron Howard And Tom Hanks Are Ready To Do Business With Dan Brown Again

5 hours ago

Not too long ago, Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series of books was the toast of Hollywood and the best seller list. With The DaVinci Code bringing in a boatload in 2006 and Angels And Demons making a more modest success of itself, the franchise starring Tom Hanks and directed by Ron Howard was on financially stable ground, but it still wasn't clear whether the series would have the momentum to continue over the long haul. It was assumed The Lost Symbol would give fans a definitive answer to the franchise question, but that project died on the vine rather quickly. For those still waiting for the team of Hanks and Howard to make a return, Deadline is your new best friend, as they've confirmed an April 2015 start date for the adaptation of Dan Brown's latest entry in the series, Inferno. We previously reported that this team up was probably happening, »

Snowpiercer Is The First Oscars Screener Sent To Academy Members

9 hours ago

Boasting a 95% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer has become one of the most critically heralded films of the year. And now it's the first to be sent to the Academy of Arts and Sciences for consideration for awards season. Deadline dropped the news that a DVD of Snowpiercer has been sent out to Academy members, who could receive the sci-fi drama as early as today. It's a bold move by RADiUS, a distribution division of The Weinstein Company that's been shaking up the standard release model, and is now kicking off the push for Oscar season. Starring an international cast that includes Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Ed Harris, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremmer, and Ko Ah-Sung, Snowpiercer found inspiration in the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. Its story centers on a titular train that houses the last dregs of humanity following a »

Guardians Of The Galaxy's Gamora Wasn't Always Going To Be Green

15 hours ago

It's always fun to look at concept art for a big budget blockbuster, as it gives you an interesting look into just what could have been if those in charge had made some slightly altered decisions. In the case of Guardians Of The Galaxy, we almost had a couple of different looks to the Guardians themselves. In the case of Rocket Raccoon, we almost had a less cuddly version of everyone's favorite smart ass parading about on the screen. However, if you thought that was the most extreme change you've seen for a Guardians character, then feast your eyes on what Gamora almost looked like. Here's an early #Gamora design I did for @Guardians Before she had to be green #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy pic.twitter.com/2lfDhwk6Xk.

Watch Every Captain America: The Winter Soldier Easter Egg

17 hours ago

We've talked about how Marvel is the dominant species when it comes to Easter eggs being hidden in a film. However, not even we could spot some of the Easter eggs buried deep within Captain America: The Winter Solider. Some of these references so sly they couldn't be captured until the film's home video release. With a digital HD version currently available for home viewing, now we have them all. Watch every Easter egg hidden in Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2-parts. Here.s part one. And now part 2. Both videos cover deeper connections to the Marvel Universe, as well as connections to the world outside of the McU. For instance, consider the following higlights: The Lemurian Star refers to the sunken continent of Lemuria. Lemuria is home to The Deviants. Arnim Zola's supercomputer form is a stepping stone to becoming a cyborg. A cyborg that was an »

New Evidence The Flash May Be In Batman v Superman

17 hours ago

The green socks started the conversation. Scoot McNairy.s quotes are kicking the discussion into a higher gear. We know that Argo co-star Scoot McNairy, a star on the rise, locked down a mysterious role in Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But when he was photographed on the set recently wearing long, green socks on his legs, speculation ran wild. The socks looked like tools that one would use to later manipulate an actor.s legs, which led to guesses that McNairy was playing The Flash, a deformed Robin, or a different character new to the DC universe. (Read our best guesses here!) McNairy doesn.t reveal his role, but he does confess that he believes he.ll be staying in these movies for a while. In an interview with Schmoes Know, McNairy admitted: I can.t even elaborate on nothing. but you know all those »

The Blair Witch Guy Made A Movie About Hunting Bigfoot, You Have To See The Trailer

18 hours ago

I.m a total horror movie apologist. If a filmmaker can shoehorn in a few legitimate scares at some point across the hour-and-forty-minute runtime, I.ll probably find a way to defend the movie. I just can.t help myself, which is why you should probably take the following sentence with a grain of salt: I am pumped up about this new Bigfoot movie! Directed by Eduardo Sanchez, who is best known for giving the world The Blair Witch Project, Exists follows a group of friends who venture out into the woods to sleep in a strange cabin, of course. They bring cameras, of course, and begin encountering some things that go bump in the night, of course. More specifically, they encounter one thing that goes bump in the night: the not so mythical Sasquatch, who may or may not be the same guy who starred in those hysterical beef »

Ghostbusters Plot Gets Picked Apart With An Honest Trailer

20 hours ago

When it comes to their Honest Trailers series, Screen Junkies tends not to discriminate when it comes to the films they pick. Whether it's a recent blockbusters, a less successful film or a beloved classic, no movie appears to be out of bounds for the amusing trailers, which make it their business to tell the plot like it is. The latest to receive the Honest Trailers treatment is none other than 80s classic Ghostbusters. "They've got the car, the gadgets and the vaguely scientific know-how to put evil in its place." The Ghostbusters Honest Trailer picks apart quite a bit, poking fun at Venkman for being a "borderline sexual predator" to Winston's diminished role (and Eddie Murphy turning down the part) to the fact that the media makes a big fuss over the Ghostbusters busting ghosts left and right, and not so much about the fact that there are apparently »

The Richard Pryor Biopic Finally Picks Its Richard Pryor

21 hours ago

It.s Mike Epps! After years of rumors and months of open competition, Mike Epps has pushed his way to the front of the pack and officially landed the role of Richard Pryor in the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic. He should be pretty proud too given pretty much everyone else rumored for the role was either more famous or more buzzed about. The announcement hasn.t been officially made by the studio, but director Lee Daniels and producer and rumored star Oprah Winfrey both tweeted / instagramed pictures that celebrated the casting. The Richard Pryor biopic has already gone through several producers and has had a ton of different stars linked to it. At various points, the world was pretty convinced the role was going to go to Michael B Jordan, Nick Cannon or Marlon Wayans. None of those versions ever came together, however, and according to IndieWire, Epps crushed his »

Guardians Of The Galaxy's Nebula Almost Had A Very Different Look

22 hours ago

Actress Karen Killan shaved her head to play Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy, and that sacrifice paid off. Nebula, despite her somewhat nebulous role in the film, stands out in a cast of great heroes and villains. A lot of that has to do with the script and Karen Gillan.s performance, but at least a part of it is simply because of her look which is, in a word, badass. Yet, believe it or not, she might have looked even better. Earlier this month we showed you this alternate look for the character which displayed a lot more skin. But that.s just the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to what Marvel had in mind. Below are a few more alternate looks the Guardians of the Galaxy team was considering for the character, released by Marvel concept artist Andy Park and picked up by our friends »

The Biggest Hit Of Vin Diesel's Career Isn't The Film You'd Expect

22 hours ago

Any way you want to look at it, Vin Diesel has had an extremely successful career. He.s toplined huge franchises. He.s played key supporting roles in beloved movies, and he.s somehow amassed more than twice as many Facebook fans as the Beatles. That, my friends, is overachieving, but even given all that, he apparently still has room to hit new benchmarks. For example: he has a new highest grossing film of his entire career. Guardians Of The Galaxy is now the single biggest movie, at least domestically, Vin Diesel has ever been a part of. According to Box Office Mojo, it has generated more than $253,000,000, which puts its roughly $15,000,000 ahead of runner-up Fast & Furious 6. Critics might say it.s not fair to lump Gotg in with more traditional Vin Diesel efforts since it.s voicework, but anyone who saw Guardians knows how important the actor is »

Japan Has Its Own Batman, And He Is So Awesome

千葉の高速にバットマンがいた笑 こんな人いるのかよΣ(・□・;) pic.twitter.com/e8gbq7T9mv. りゅーちゃん (@snsd_mumin) August 24, 2014 Nuh-nuh, nuh-nuh, nuh-nuh, nuh-nuh. Bat fan! The hook about Batman is that he.s an ordinary guy doing extraordinary things. Ok, he.s a multi-millionaire pouring his family fortune into a one-man war on organized crime. But Bruce Wayne isn.t an alien from the planet Krypton, or a mutant blessed with a genetic enhancement. He.s a man, who pushes himself to physical and psychological extremes to persevere and protect. If you stripped away the costume, he.d look a little bit like us. And if we had his resources, we could look a little bit like him. That is the calling card of this one extreme Japanese fan who . according to HitFix . went the extra mile to build his own authentic Batsuit and Batcycle to cruise "down the highway in Chiba Prefecture," located east of Tokyo. »

Watch Superman Brave Multiple Ice Bucket Challenges In Costume

26 August 2014 12:15 PM, PDT

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive. Able to endure multiple buckets of freezing-cold water as part of a massive ice bucket challenge. That.s the new mantra for Henry Cavill.s Man of Steel as he and Amy Adams took the plunge to help Als awareness in the above video. Amy Adams starts the challenge, which was posted to Vimeo by Cruel Films. And things get cruel. eventually. Ms. Lois Lane begins by accepting the challenge, then passing it along to her siblings. By the look of her wet hair, I.m wondering if there was a dress rehearsal for this challenge. Soon enough, though, the dumping is underway. Henry Cavill, in full Superman attire, takes a regular bucket alongside Amy Adams. But because he is Superman . and he.s impervious to pain . the buckets of ice water just keep coming. Two. Three. Four. By the »

These Alternate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Designs Will Haunt Your Dreams Forever

From the first appearance of the rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, fans were outraged about how Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael and Leonardo had been redesigned. Gone were the slender, shelled surfer dudes of the 1990s incarnation. In their place stood hulking CGI monstrosities with meaty lips and a barrage of knickknacks cluttering their costumes. But the heroes on half-shell could have looked radically different. On his Facebook page, Anthony Francisco shared some concept art that he pitched to Platinum Dunes in 2011. Back then, Michael Bay's production company was shopping for a shop to bring the rebooted turtles to life. Francisco contributed to the designs for Illusion Industries, »

This Week In Home Entertainment: The Walking Dead, The Normal Heart And More

26 August 2014 11:22 AM, PDT

Blended Blu-ray Adam Sandler has incurred the ire of critics over the last several years, producing raunchy comedies that have often been a giant excuse to go on vacation. However, with Blended, Sandler manages to take the kid-oriented gags and vacation plot to a more charming level, thanks to great onscreen chemistry with Drew Barrymore. Of course, they've had plenty of practice. She's his partner in crime from 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer, the latter of which was also directed by Frank Coraci. The central premise of the film is flimsy but passable for a romantic comedy. Jim (Sandler) and Lauren (Barrymore) meet for a blind date that doesn.t go particularly well. As it turns out, Lauren.s friend is dating Jim.s boss and when that couple has a falling out, Lauren and Jim become the beneficiaries of an awesome African vacation package. Naturally, they both take »
