Featuring three new Avengers, an insane robot villain and plenty of pulse-racing, property-damaging action, fans and general moviegoers will get their money.s worth of Marvel excitement. In fact, the May blockbuster is going to be so off-the-rails crazy, the ending we.ll see in theaters nearly didn.t become a reality! Joss Whedon told Yahoo! Movies that Avengers: Age of Ultron will have a climax that is so grand and epic, the director didn.t even think that Marvel would let him do it when he brought it to the table. Said Whedon: Avengers: Age of Ultron got larger than the first film. I didn.t mean for it to get larger, but the climax that I pitched was completely unhinged and nobody said no, so that.s that. It.s »

Why Jon Stewart Is Furious With Fox News Over American Sniper Coverage

2 hours ago

Theoretically, conservative pundits should embrace everything about American Sniper. The film celebrates a member of our military. It was made by one of their own in Clint Eastwood. And the movie has been cleaning up at the box office en route to Oscar eve, where it took home one statue for Best Achievement in Sound Editing. That wasn.t enough for the hosts of the Fox News Channel.s Fox and Friends, and now Jon Stewart is taking them to task. During a lengthy rant on The Daily Show about how Conservatives often get angry because things aren.t Conservative enough, Stewart eventually rolled around to the reactions to American Sniper not winning All of the Oscars. When trying to figure out if Sniper was snubbed by the largely Liberal Hollywood system because it was directed by Clint Eastwood, one pundit on Fox News guessed, "Probably." Which set Stewart off: »

4 hours ago

With a little over two months until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, it.s time for Marvel to take their marketing to the next level. Yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. posted the first solo hero poster featuring everyone.s favorite armor-wearing, snarky industrialist superhero Iron Man. Now it.s time for The Hulk to shine, and he looks like he.s ready for battle. This morning, Mark Ruffalo posted on Facebook the first Hulk-centric poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Like Tony Stark the day before, Hulk is getting ready to face off against Ultron.s minions. His pose is almost exactly the same as it was in the group poster, but regardless, it.s obvious he.s jacked up and ready to rip into these robots with unquenchable fury. If this is a consistent pattern, then each Avenger will likely get their own poster in the coming days (perhaps »

Richard Linklater's Latest To Take Another Unusual Look At Family

5 hours ago

While Richard Linklater flew closer to the Best Picture Oscar sun with his Golden Globes-dominating film, Boyhood than he ever had before, the prestigious gold statue ended up eluding him. (Save for the Best Supporting Actress win for Patricia Arquette.) Now, the Texas filmmaker is circling another project that could end up, in much the same spirit of Boyhood, being an innovative, original look at the concept of family based off a book called Where.d You Go Bernadette. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Richard Linklater is in talks for a directorial effort that would be an adaptation of the 2012 best-selling novel by Maria Semple, Where.d You Go Bernadette: A Novel. The novel.s satirical, unorthodox plot depicts a young girl.s quest to find her brilliant, but capricious mother at the ends of the Earth. The film could very well continue the usage of what now seems to »

Why The NYPD Is Forcing Cops To Watch Road House

6 hours ago

It.s a known fact that the 1989 classic, Road House with the late Patrick Swayze is the manliest thing ever put to celluloid in the history of modern civilization. Women and young children have been known to grow hair on their chests and develop deep voices after a single viewing, due to incidental microwaves of testosterone emitted by the film. Yet, it seems that the New York Police Department, in light of the incident which claimed the life of Eric Garner, are using a scene from Road House as a training tool to teach officers more effective ways of dealing with irate people. According to a report from The New York Post, the NYPD has instituted a $35 million, mandatory 3-day training program designed to teach its 22,000 participants that, as an instructor states, "You have to have a thick skin." The scene that was apparently utilized in the NYPD course depicted »

The Fantastic Four Reboot Will Copy Steven Spielberg In This Way

7 hours ago

Regardless of whether they actually plan to do so or not, at some point every director who sets off to make a big-budgeted blockbuster ends up copying Steven Spielberg. It just has to happen. That.s because the bearded wonder has done so much behind the camera in this genre that you can.t help but pay homage to his efforts in some fashion. And The Fantastic Four.s Josh Trank has now come out and admitted that his goal from the first reel of the upcoming reboot is to emulate the "dark" tone of an "Amblin movie," the studio that Spielberg founded back in 1981 with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. Trank made these comments during an interview with Empire, where he was also joined by The Fantastic Four.s writer and producer Simon Kinberg. Kinberg added to these remarks by saying that The Fantastic Four will look to emulate »

Star Wars 7: The Honest Reason J.J. Abrams Hasn't Shown You More Footage

8 hours ago

How much do you show? And when do you show it? These are just a few of the questions that J.J. Abrams admits he is wrestling with behind the scenes as the team figures out how best to promote Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Basically, J.J. Abrams knows that they could go into "radio silence" from now until December, when the sequel opens, and they.d still break box office records. Star Wars, like most of the Marvel properties, doesn.t need to boost the brand. The audience is ready. and many would argue that the less they are shown, the better. In fact, during a conversation with the Irish Examiner during a Us-Ireland Alliance Party in Southern California, the director explained that they have Too Much to show, and they don.t want to rush to reveal everything: We.re just trying to make sure it.s »

Green Ranger Hates That Dark, Gritty Power Rangers Video, Here's Why

8 hours ago

Since hitting the web a couple days ago, Joseph Kahn and Adi Shankar.s short film, Power/Rangers, has blasted past 11 million views on YouTube. (It was pulled from Vimeo, but that.s another story altogether.) The reaction from fans has been overwhelmingly positive, but there.s one prominent figure from the Rangers universe that doesn.t care for it: the original Green Ranger, Jason David Frank. Frank recently posted a video reaction to Power/Rangers on his Facebook page. While he didn.t take issue with the production value or the performances by James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackoff, he didn.t care for the cuss words.  I know there's a lot of fans out there that love it and all that stuff, but I'm just a PG-13 guy. The cuss words, the drugs, all this other stuff . it doesn't fly with me. . The problem is that [Power »

The Tomb Raider Reboot Just Took A Huge Step Forward

17 hours ago

At the turn of the century, Tomb Raider was a franchise at the top of its game. As if that wasn't enough, the series had also spawned two moderately successful films starring the then up-and-coming Angelina Jolie, Daniel Craig, and Gerard Butler. Unfortunately, by time the film franchise started to take off, the video game series had taken a serious blow with horrible reviews and a failing public image. A third Tomb Raider film was, sadly, never meant to be. Twelve years later, it looks like Lara Croft.s next is finally leaving development hell, and taking aim at the box office once more. Variety has reported that MGM, previously named custodian of the Tomb Raider film series, has struck a deal with Warner Bros. to bring their long-in-the-works reboot of the archaeological adventure series back to the big screen. It.s been over a decade since Paramount Pictures owned »

Watch Every Epic J.K. Simmons Insult In this Whiplash Supercut

19 hours ago

J.K. Simmons earned a well deserved Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor earlier this week, thanks to his performance in Damian Chazelle's Best Picture contender, Whiplash. If you haven't seen it yet, and need some incentive to secure the nearest copy for your viewing pleasure, we shall let Dr. Fletcher do the work for us to convince you in this supercut of motivational wisdom. Congratulations to all of you who survived, and massive kudos go to YouTube user Dsfarslowfor showing just how much Whiplash truly earned its Best Film Editing Oscar as well. Don't be fooled by the 1:40 length of this video, because in that span Fletcher metaphorically burns your house down, has his way with a family member, and eats the family pet... all in the form of verbal abuse and assault. While his tone is threatening, you have to admit that the man is extremely clever and »

Love & Mercy Trailer: Watch John Cusack In The Beach Boys Biopic

20 hours ago

John Cusack has made some interesting choices in the past decade of his career. For every Maps To The Stars boosting him up, there's a Dragon Blade to take him down, and a project like Cell that plants him firmly in the middle of the Hollywood star system. Not content to sit on his laurels, Cusack has another film coming our way, and pretty soon too. Watch the trailer for the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy below, and see where you think this film hits on the Cusack Scale. Many thanks to the film.s official YouTube channel, the trailer for Love & Mercy has been shared for all to see, and it looks like it has a fair amount of promise. Co-starring Paul Dano as the younger incarnation of the rock idol who helped make The Beach Boys what they were best known for, Love & Mercy tells the story of »

Coming Soon.net has gotten their hands on a bit of new information, and are reporting on the story that Creed will revolve around.

Still, there.s no denying that boxing is in his blood, »

Why The New Alien Movie Is Great For Ripley

21 hours ago

While Ridley Scott.s Alien and James Cameron.s Aliens remain two of the greatest examples of science fiction in cinematic history, the sequels Alien3 and Alien Resurrection don.t exactly have the shiniest reputations. As such, it.s pretty easy to argue that Sigourney Weaver.s Ellen Ripley never really got the send-off that she deserved in the franchise, but that.s an issue, it seems, that Weaver and director Neill Blomkamp are eager to do away with forever in the next chapter of the series. Both the actress and the director are currently on the promotional tour for Chappie - their soon-to-be-released first collaboration . and it was while speaking with Sky Movies that they revealed some very interesting information about the direction of the recently-announced Alien film currently in development. Specifically, Weaver lamented that the sci-fi franchise never really delivered her legendary character the resolution she deserved, and »

5 X-Men Characters Ben Hardy Could Play In Apocalypse

21 hours ago

Earlier this week, former East Enders star Ben Hardy was cast in X-Men: Apocalypse. Unfortunately for fans, who he.s playing wasn.t disclosed - so we have no idea whether he.s playing someone not yet seen in the X-Men films, or a younger version of a familiar character. All we know at this point is that he will appear alongside other young costars including Tye Sheridan as Cyclops (which Hardy was originally being considered for), Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm and Kodi-Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler. However, that doesn.t mean we can.t make a few educated guesses about his character.s identity. There are a few names that pop out more than others when taking into account the film.s titular villain and that James McAvoy.s Professor X has a brand new generation of students he.s teaching. X-Men: Apocalypse is being set »

Why It's Really Important Kung Fu Panda 3 Doesn't Suck

22 hours ago

As you may have read about in multiple recent reports, DreamWorks Animation is currently experiencing a good number of money woes. Multiple features in recent years haven.t clicked at the box office quite as well as expected, and as a result the studio has been forced to change the way that they look at their future, and do a good bit of restructuring. One result of these shifts is that there is now a good deal of pressure on the upcoming Kung Fu Panda 3 to both come in on time and make money, and according to recent reports, moves are being made to try and ensure its success. DreamWorks has made a move to have filmmaker Alessandro Carloni join the already-hired Jennifer Yuh as a co-director on Kung Fu Panda 3, hoping that his assistance on the project will help the movie stay on track for its March »
