3 hours ago

We all have a favorite Avenger. Some are Team Captain America. Others are Team Iron Man. Heck, next summer, Marvel.s actually asking us to choose sides based on our own personal allegiances when Civil War breaks out on screen. But are there Avengers that you truly hate? BrandWatch thinks so. The company conducted a recent study of conversations held on Twitter pertaining to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its various characters. They spent one month tracking the names of characters who have appeared in previous Marvel movies, or will appear in a future Marvel movie. They collected 896,000 mentions from a "focus group" of 188,120 people . to give you an idea where this data comes from. And they have determined that Spider-Man is the most talked about hero, with Nick Fury ending up in last place. The company went one step further, though. Using what they call Sentiment Analysis, they looked »

What We Missed When George Miller's Justice League Movie Was Cancelled

3 hours ago

Justice League: Part One will be the cinematic debut of DC Comics. premiere superhero team, but it wasn.t the first time a film based on them tried to get off the ground. Back in 2007, Warner Bros began planning Justice League: Mortal for a 2009 release, and for most of that year things went smoothly. However, in the beginning of 2008, the movie was scrapped due to the Writers Guild strike and other production obstacles, and according to one of its stars, fans missed out on an impressive cinematic spectacle. Actor D.J. Cotrona, who was set to play Superman in Justice League: Mortal, told Slash Film that fans missed out on seeing director George Miller.s gigantic interpretation, citing this year.s Mad Max: Fury Road as proof of what he could have accomplished with the DC heroes. Cotrona said: The best way I can describe it is: George Miller »

Prometheus 2 Is Definitely Happening, Find Out When

3 hours ago

Back in 2012, there was a great deal of hype building up to the release of Prometheus, director Ridley Scott.s return to the Alien universe he first visited in 1979. The result disappointed many fans (I dig it, but the film is admittedly very flawed), and the potential for a sequel has been a will-they-won.t-they proposition ever since. Scott has been talking about Prometheus 2 for some time, but now we know when it will start production. In the latest print edition of Total Film (via The Playlist), a profile of Scott reveals the interesting little tidbit that Prometheus 2 will begin filming in January of 2016. This will follow hot on the heels of The Martian, Scott.s Mars-set survival drama that releases this October. Talking to the magazine, Scott said: I.ve got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it. It.s good that he.s »

How Ed Helms Will Feel If He's Replaced For The Next Vacation Movie

4 hours ago

Tradition dictates that Ed Helms be recast as Rusty Griswold should Warner Bros. move ahead with another Vacation movie. The charcter was played by Anthony Michael Hall in National Lampoon’s Vacation, Jason Lively in European Vacation, Johnny Galecki in Christmas Vacation, and Ethan Embry in Vegas Vacation. There was even a Vacation short film called Hotel Hell that featured Travis Greer as Clark’s son. If this does in deed happen, however, Helms wouldn’t be too happy.  Yahoo Movies caught up with the actor while he was out promoting the latest Vacation to ask him some questions posed by fans on social media. One Twitter user, Kevin Crossman, asked Helms if he’d be sad for any potential recasting. Helms replied:  If there’s another Vacation movie and there’s another Rusty, I will understand… »

Firefighters Created A Badass Fantastic Four Human Torch, Watch Him Fly

4 hours ago

Later this week, Josh Trank and Michael B. Jordan will try to convince us that a man can engulf his body in flames and fly when The Human Torch soars through the latest Fantastic Four. Before that happens, though, you can watch a "real" Human Torch take to the skies over New York in this impressive video: The firefighters in the video actually collaborated with Thinkmodo, a marketing agency who recruited the Long Island civil servants to control this bit of dangerous Fantastic Four promotion. According to Yahoo Movies, Thinkmodo worked with the crew to control the environment and send a drone designed to look like The Human Torch into the sky. They even called him Johnny: And cleverly put "Flame On!" on the remote-control device: And when he took off, it looked like this! My favorite part of the video is when the team put the new logo from »

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation Was Supposed To Have Way More Of One Character

5 hours ago

Over the weekend, Tom Cruise and the Impossible Mission Force team stole away the top spot at the box office and delivered one of the most entertaining movies of year in the process. There.s been a lot of talk about changes made to Mission: Impossible.Rogue Nation, especially the ending, but as it turns out, one character in particular was supposed to have much more of a presence than he did. Just a heads up, there are potential spoilers for Rogue Nation beyond this point, so if you haven.t seen the movie, drop what you.re doing, go see it right now, and come back to read this later. Talking to Deadline, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie discussed how the screenwriting process was a constant saga reinvention and discovery. Every time they made a change, something that went on well into production, it caused a ripple effect where they »

What Jurassic World 2 Will Be About, According To Colin Trevorrow

5 hours ago

With the announcement of Jurassic World 2, we’re left a bit perplexed as to where a sequel might go. How many times, exactly, can we return to an island — the original Isla Nublar or otherwise — especially after the vision for the park was fulfilled and failed? Thankfully, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow teases plans for a sequel that goes beyond the island.  It all has to do with what B.D. Wong’s Dr. Wu said in this summer’s blockbuster: "We’re not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur." In an interview with Wired U.K., Trevorrow said he found that to be an interesting idea: What if this went open source? It's almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it? What if there are 15 different »

The Trailer For The Deadpool Trailer Is Obscene And Hilarious

6 hours ago

Move over, red capes. Deadpool is coming! Deadpool is coming! As we reported earlier, two new trailers for next year’s Deadpool movie are expected to drop on Tuesday, as Ryan Reynolds just confirmed with this hilarious short video posted to the film’s Facebook page: As you can tell, Ryan Reynolds is totally in on the joke of promoting one’s movie with a teaser for an actual trailer, digging at the process by stating he’s "a post-modern asshole" for even sharing a trailer for a trailer. At least it wasn’t a 7-second Vine with footage of a trailer that still won’t drop for at least 24 hours. This clip primarily is the footage that 20th Century Fox used to open the Deadpool portion of the San Diego Comic-Con panel. Only, instead of talk of the trailer dropping, in »

After The Trainwreck Shooting, Amy Schumer Is All-In On Gun Regulation

6 hours ago

A couple days ago, Amy Schumer responded to an open letter calling for her to tackle the issue of gun violence after the tragic Lafayette theater shooting. She tweeted, "I.m on it. You.ll see." Now, we.ve learned what she had up her sleeve. The comedienne has teamed up with New York senator (and her cousin) Chuck Schumer for a new campaign that will attempt to reduce mass shootings in the country.  USA Today reports that Schumer.s efforts will have three parts. The first is a piece of legislation that Senator Schumer will introduce shortly. It will reward states that submit all necessary records to background check systems by providing funding. Those states that don.t submit these records will be penalized. The second act involves the Department of Justice. The Schumers plan to call on them to release information about "involuntary mental health commitments" and to »

Simon Pegg Has Some Great Advice For Star Wars Fans

6 hours ago

Anticipation for Star Wars: The Force Awakens reaches new heights with each passing day. The film is scheduled for release on December 18, and so far we.ve only seen two trailers, a photo spread in Vanity Fair, and two presentations with the cast at Star Wars Celebration and Comic-Con. While it.s difficult to be patient, that.s exactly what Simon Pegg is urging us all to do.  In an interview with Yahoo Movies, the actor gave the world some much needed advice to put everything back into perspective.  It.s out in four months. People are so desperate to see it . it.s like another trailer is just going to be more footage that.s gonna kind of spoil it if you watch it. I just wish people would hold tight and not worry so much about seeing it so quickly. If you think about it, we.re »

Here's Everything Wrong With Kingsman In One Vicious Video

7 hours ago

Yes, even Kingsman: The Secret Service, one of the most surprisingly entertaining movies of the past year, is not without its faults. And that’s the job of this new video, to dissect the film and pinpoint everything that didn’t make sense, was just plain silly, or was too close of a Fifty Shades reference. Without further adieu, here’s everything wrong with Kingsman in under 11 minutes. Be warned of Spoilers from the film. This video from CinemaSins points out all the flaws a missteps. We ignored all of these grievances at the time because the film was straight-up fun to watch. A movie about a group of British teens vying for a spot on a super suave team of secret agents could’ve been a drag, but Matthew Vaughn delivered an action film that was unique and inappropriately, hilariously funny.

Robin Hood Origin Story Wants Kingsman Or X-Men Stars For Lead Role

18 hours ago

Origin stories are big in the superhero realm. On the pages of comics, characters that have been around for decades have had the tale of where they come from told and retold and reimagined numerous times. But this fascination doesn’t stop there, as we’re getting an origin story for Robin Hood (to be fair, 1991’s Kevin Costner-starring Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was also an origin story), and there are three young actors in the hunt for the lead role. Deadline reports that a trio of up and coming young British actors are at the top of Lionsgate’s wish list for the upcoming Robin Hood: Origins. On their shortlist are Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton, Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston, and Jack Reynor, from Transformers: Age of Extinction. The report also notes that The Maze Runner star Dylan O’ »

Watch Simon Pegg Rank All Six Star Wars Movies In Less Than A Minute

19 hours ago

Amongst fans, there is a great amount of debate about the various merits of the six movies that currently make up the bulk of the Star Wars universe. We all have our favorites, sometimes they overlap, sometimes they don’t, and we could probably argue about how they rank in an endless loop. Simon Pegg was recently asked to rank all six Star Wars movies, from lowest to highest, and you can check out his answers below. While stumping for his latest film, Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation, which just so happens to be one of the best action movies of the year so far (for my money it’s second only to Mad Max: Fury Road), MTV asked Pegg to list his choices - ranking The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of »

Stuart Little Is Getting A Remake

20 hours ago

If you just can.t get enough of talking animated mice, you.re in luck today. It.s been more than a decade since we saw the adorable, precocious, possibly even heroic Stuart Little on the big screen (the third movie, 2006.s Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild, went directly to video), but there.s more on the way as the popular family movie is getting a remake courtesy of Sony Pictures and Red Wagon Entertainment. The Tracking Board was the first to report that the iconic little mouse is getting another go at cinematic success. Like its theatrical predecessors, this version of Stuart Little will be a hybrid of computer animation and live-action footage (again, Stuart Little 3 is the black sheep of the family and was entirely animated) and follows the adventures of the titular mouse and the Littles, the human family that adopts him.
