2 hours ago

As we get closer to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December 18, we're still waiting ever so patiently to hear more about the first Star Wars spin-off film from Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards. Details are extremely limited, but a few actresses are said to be in contention for a leading role. As the plot for this and subsequent spin-offs are unknown, however, recent comments from Disney CEO Bob Iger have caused some to speculate that they might not be what Star Wars fans are expecting. During a recent shareholder.s meeting, Iger made the following statement, as quoted by Get Your Geek On: It.s only the beginning of a new era of exceptional Star Wars storytelling; next year we.ll release our first standalone movie based on these characters, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, and we.ll finish this trilogy with Episode »

2 hours ago

Is the first Star Wars spin-off movie about to take a massive leap forward with the casting of its leading actor? It certainly sounds that way. That.s because reports have now emerged that Tatiana Maslany has landed the coveted role. Total Geeks have reported that Tatiana Maslany was one of several up and coming actresses to have originally been linked to the role. However it.s now believed that she has beaten both upcoming Rooney Mara and Felicity Jones, who were her competition, to the part. In fact a source for Total Geeks informed the publication immediately after this trifecta had auditioned that Tatiana Maslany had become the front-runner for the role. It.s also believed that Maslany had impressed both Disney and Lucasfilm very early on in with her passion to join the film. It.s still not been verified, but the studios are believed to have now »

5 Big Reasons The All-Female Ghostbusters Is A Great Idea

2 hours ago

Growing up, I was probably just as big a Ghostbusters fan as you. Its off-beat brand of humor and scares is one of the inspirations for my second book, A Boy and His Corpse. The movie was highly influential for me. So when I heard the news that there would be an all-female cast for the remake (reboot?) of the Ghostbusters franchise, I, like pretty much the entire Internet, went crazy. How could they replace Peter, Ray, Winston, and Egon with one part Bridesmaids, and the other half SNL? Madness, sheer madness! But once I got over my little hissy fit and actually thought about it, I realized something. This wasn.t a bad idea. In fact, it might be a pretty good idea. And not just for one reason, but five. So here are five glaringly obvious (once you think about it) reasons why an all-female cast for a »

MTV Movie Awards: Amy Schumer And Anna Kendrick Take Cups To A Filthy New Level

3 hours ago

Amy Schumer is hosting this year.s MTV Movie Awards, and we can.t wait for her epic night of debauchery. She.s made a career out of her over-the-top inappropriate but hysterical sense of humor, and now she gets to do that during one of the more off-the-cuff award shows of the year. To preview all the shenanigans that are coming our way, the network has released a brief promotional video featuring Schumer and an uncomfortable interaction with Anna Kendrick. Kendrick is probably sick and tired of hearing people talk about "Cups," the song she covered with her Pitch Perfect co-stars. After breaking into the top 10 spots on Billboard.s Hot 100, everyone has listened to it on repeat and re-watched the adjoining music video countless times. But the 29-year-old has to endure it a little bit more, as Schumer steps in for a filthier rendition of the game. After »

Could Joss Whedon Direct Captain Marvel? Here's What He Said

4 hours ago

It.s looking like Joss Whedon won.t be directing the two-part Avengers: Infinity War after Age of Ultron. The man.s exhausted from all the years spent honing his shared cinematic universe, but he did say that he wants to stick around at Marvel in some capacity. The question is, if not the Avengers movies, than what? Is the upcoming Captain Marvel on the docket? Whedon has made a career out of bringing a powerful female hero to the (small) screen, so might he do it again with the McU.s first female-centric solo superhero movie? BuzzFeed caught up with the director on the phone, after some comments he made months ago about the lack of female-driven blockbusters went public. Upon broaching the question of will he or won.t he direct the Captain Marvel movie, the master of the vague responses said: Um, I would never rule anything »

Ernie Hudson Has More Strong Opinions On The Ghostbusters Reboot

13 hours ago

Paul Feig's new Ghostbusters cast has touched off a firestorm of reaction across the internet, with both sides of the aisle being represented in force. Even Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd have given their blessing and their enthusiasm to the Paul Feig directed, female oriented reboot. Of course, with any reboot, there's the member of the original cast that isn't completely on board. That member was Ernie Hudson, or at least he was until he was reached for further comment this past week, which resulted in a complete 180. The Wrap reached out to Hudson, one of the original Ghostbusters cast members, and they got him to break his self imposed "no comment" edict he issued through Twitter on Wednesday. Not only did they get a comment, they were witnesses to Ernie Hudson's official reversal of opinion on the whole female Ghostbusters idea. When asked, Hudson responded: Four fiercely funny, »

Sometimes a film just seems cursed not to be made. Straight Outta Compton seems to be one of those films, considering there's been a shooting, various casting problems, even accusations of racism clouding the proceedings. However, if you thought the Nwa biography was out of the woods and sailing clean, the biggest wrench has been thrown into the works: a murder investigation.

While promoting his film The Stamford Prison Experiment at the Sundance Film Festival alongside co-star Michael Angarano, Miller told Hitfix how long he would love to play The Flash if it was his decision.

18 hours ago

Chris Pratt has a number of huge blockbusters listed as upcoming projects on his resume, including Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but certainly one of his most interesting upcoming movies is the comic book adaptation Cowboy Ninja Viking. Not only does the film have an absolutely ridiculous name, but it looks like it may be directed by two of the most interesting breakout filmmakers of 2014. News has come to us from Variety that Universal Pictures has entered early talks with David Leitch and Chad Stahelski to be the directors responsible for bringing Cowboy Ninja Viking to the big screen.

The Fantastic Four Reboot Pretty Much Rips Off Interstellar, Here's The Proof

20 hours ago

What.s the difference between the teaser trailers for The Fantastic Four and Interstellar? Not much apparently. That.s according to this new mash-up of the films' trailers, which proves just how similar they both are. Don.t believe me? Take a look for yourself. Eerie, huh? It.s also kind of awesome too. Mostly because Matthew McConaughey.s voice is so delightfully hypnotic that you can.t help but feel enchanted. Seriously, the man could probably talk off a eunuch. The fact that these trailers are so similar has actually caused a bit of reaction from old school Fantastic Four fans. They have criticized the first clip from Josh Trank.s impending blockbuster because of how dark and moody it looked. They believe that this is totally at odds with The Fantastic Four.s light and jovial aesthetic from the comics. Plus, most of them are still pretty annoyed »

20 hours ago

In addition to eventually leading his own film, the Game of Thrones and Red Road star will also be one of the main members of the Justice League, which would be exciting for any actor, but the role is especially important to Momoa for another reason—his family.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Looks Much Cooler In Neon

21 hours ago

Have you ever wondered what the celebrated trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens would look like if it was put through a magic machine that transformed it into something seen gracing the side of a seedy hotel at night in the middle of 1980.s Miami? Me too! Thankfully, those of us with such eccentrically specific curiosities will have to wonder no longer. Check out this amazing redux of the trailer done completely in animated neon sprites! We.ve seen it done in Lego, witnessed its recreation in Grand Theft Auto V and even enjoyed the cheesy goodness as it was charmingly sweded. However, a digital animator going by the username, Neonardo, whose gif gallery is an absolute experience, would create this spectacular homage to the original reel, rejuvenated with pastel-pieced glowy-goodness.

23 hours ago

George Lucas. attempt at cornering the kid.s animated musical fairy tale market in Strange Magic was, unfortunately, a box-office tragedy for the legendary mind who gave us Star Wars.

However, during a discussion of the film, one critic in particular, Ben Mankiewicz would evoke a comparison to "incest porn." Wha?...Huh? You have to give this a listen: So, just exactly How the idea of "incest porn" got juxtaposed to the children.s film Strange Magic you may wonder? Well, sitting down for a 3-person video review during web series, What The Flick?!, host Christy Lemire, along with Matt Atchity of Rotten Tomatoes, were also joined by the aforementioned Turner Classic Movie host and product of Hollywood royalty, Ben Mankiewicz.
