Community Recap: “Grifting 101″

35 minutes ago

Community’s “Grifting 101” was certainly a departure this week, as the gang begins looking through new classes to take with one another. The first class everyone finds a similar interest in is -- you guessed it -- “Grifting 101.” The formula for this episode does make it intriguing to watch, if only to see who exactly is grifting whom, but I think that some of the pacing issues here could have been handled with a shorter run time overall. If they had cut about five to ten minutes, I think the show would have found its sweet spot -- ironic, as I’ve praised the show in previous episodes for longer running times. The gang immediately believes Jeff to be jealous over the possibility of someone gaining more attention than him with the arrival of this new class, and they’re right of course. Jeff Winger is always at his most »

The Flash Recap: “Grodd Lives”

1 hour ago

In case the title of tonight's episode didn't clue you in, this hour features the one and only Gorilla Grodd. One might suspect that the idea of a super-intelligent, telepathic meta-gorilla would be a tough sell to audiences and a real beast to wrestle with in the writer's room, but man did they pull it off. Not only did Grodd pose perhaps the greatest challenge to The Flash so far (second only to Reverse-Flash himself), he also managed to tug on the heartstrings of the viewers at home. That's no mean feat. [caption id="attachment_454573" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via The CW[/caption] Grodd has been teased in name and in shadowy reveals all season, but the abused animal of General Eiling's military experiments has finally been unleashed. It would have been easy to set Grodd up as the "Villain of the Week" like most of the episodes have done this season, but it was a »

Joss Whedon, Kevin Feige and Avengers: Age Of Ultron Cast Reveal Memorable Moments from Filming

3 hours ago

When I sat down to talk with the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast, Kevin Feige, and writer-director Joss Whedon at the Los Angeles junket, I went in with a gameplan: ask them some fun questions and turn the answers into quick-cutting videos. I know some of you will be disappointed I didn’t use my time focusing on the movie, but since I did interviews on the set of Age of Ultron, and posted those over the past few months (links further down the page), I wanted to do something different. In the video below, Paul BettanyJames SpaderMark RuffaloChris EvansChris HemsworthElizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonJeremy RennerCobie SmuldersKevin Feige and Joss Whedon talk about their memorable moments from filming the Avengers sequel.

The Infinite Horizon: Greg Berlanti to Produce Comic Adaptation for Warner Bros.

3 hours ago

Warner Bros. has picked up Gerry Duggan and artist Phil Noto's graphic novel The Infinite Horizon in a package that includes the rights to a miniseries and a film script by Ryan Condal (Hercules). Variety reports that Greg Berlanti, the writer and producer behind The CW's hit superhero series Arrow and The Flash, as well as the in-development shared-universe Atom spinoff, is on board to produce alongside Sarah Schechter and Lawrence Grey. An update of classic lit, Dugan found inspiration for his six-issue comic series in Homer's 'The Odyssey'. Set in the near future, The Infinite Horizon follows "The Soldier with No Name" as he leads a group of abandoned soldiers on a perilous decade-long journey home after years embroiled in military conflict. Along the way he escapes shipwrecks, an enemy in cyclops-esque battle armor, and "the siren song of a predatory society."

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See Mad Max: Fury Road

5 hours ago

Mad Max: Fury Road is one of my most-anticipated films of the year, and every trailer I’ve seen has only increased by excitement for the mayhem. While there will be no shortage of superhero movies and other PG-13 blockbusters, Fury Road looks absolutely bonkers, and no matter what, you won’t see another movie like it this year. Even if you’ve never seen a Mad Max movie, I’m betting you can still revel in the insanity of explosion tornadoes. I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 25 admit-two passes to an early screening of Mad Max: Fury Road. To enter for a chance to win, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “Mad Max”.  The screening is on Tuesday, May 12th @ 7:30pm at Regal Atlantic Station, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable.  Multiple entries from »

Spider-man Director: Marvel and Sony Considering Warm Bodies, Pitch Perfect Helmers

5 hours ago

So, who’s going to follow Sam Raimi and Marc Webb as the director of the next Spider-Man film? With production underway on Captain America: Civil War and Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures deep in the hunt for the actor who will portray Spider-Man (first popping up in Civil War before leading his own film), the contest to direct the new Spider-Man movie is also heating up. A previous report from March claimed that Drew Goddard, the filmmaker behind The Cabin in the Woods and Sony’s aborted Sinister Six, was in talks to write and direct the new Spidey pic. Goddard was a solid and sensible choice, having had experience with Sony on Sinister Six and with Marvel creating Daredevil. But a new report leaves Goddard’s name out of the picture entirely and instead reveals a familiar-feeling list of directors who are being considered to helm the new Spider-Man film instead. »

Marvel Needs to Defeat Its Villain Problem

6 hours ago

Marvel has done a terrific job with its heroes. They’ve managed to tie six disparate characters into a cohesive unit across 11 movies. While the ending of Avengers: Age of Ultron makes me a little wistful for the loss of the old team, the studio did a good job of planting the seeds for the other characters, and I’m excited to see what the new Avengers have to offer. This is in addition to the terrific world-building, fun plots, and exciting action. But with the exception of Loki, their villains are awful. It’s been said that heroes are only as good as their villains, and Marvel has proved the exception by setting up perfunctory antagonists who are more of an obstacle than full-fledged characters. They lack shading and their simplistic plans and motives have become duller with every new film. Almost every bad guy wants either power or revenge, »

The Flash: Jesse L. Martin Discusses Gorilla Grodd and the “Mind-Spinning” Season Finale

6 hours ago

In the “Grodd Lives” episode of The CW series The Flash, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash must deal with Dr. Wells, aka Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh), unleashing the very angry gorilla, Grodd, on Central City. Joe (Jesse L. Martin), Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) head down into the sewers to catch Grodd, but quickly learn that won’t be so easy, after he kidnaps Joe. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Jesse L. Martin talked about the events that lead up to Grodd’s release, just how pissed off the enormous gorilla is, how much fun it is to be a part of such a totally wild storyline, how Joe would really feel about a Barry and Iris romance, what fans should brace themselves for with the season finale, Barry Allen facing the big decision to go back in time and save his parents or to »

Ioan Gruffudd Talks Forever’s Season Finale, and Season 2 Hopes

8 hours ago

In the season finale of the ABC drama series Forever, called “The Last Death of Henry Morgan,” Henry (Ioan Gruffudd) and Adam’s (Burn Gorman) long and unrelenting collision course comes to a head, finally forcing Henry to decide whether to let Jo (Alana De La Garza) in on his big secret. It gives just enough resolution to be a very satisfying finale, while still leaving fans of the show wanting more. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Ioan Gruffudd talked about answering many of the season’s questions, leaving people wanting more, how he hopes they’ll get to come back for a second season, that he thoroughly enjoyed learning about the twists and turns every week, whether he’s been rooting for Henry to reveal his secret, and how he feels about the very dark step that Henry takes to stop Adam. Be aware that there are some spoilers. »

Captain America: Civil War Adds Martin Freeman

8 hours ago

Well now both Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are part of the McU. Marvel announced today that Sherlock and The Hobbit star Martin Freeman has joined the bursting-at-the-seams cast of Captain America: Civil War. Directed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier helmers Joe and Anthony Russo, Civil War is technically a Captain America movie, but it’s becoming harder to believe it’s not actually The Avengers 2.5. Marvel doesn’t specify what character Freeman is playing, but as of now the lineup for Civil War includes Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), as well as Chadwick Boseman’s debut appearance as Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl as the villainous Baron von Zemo, and the new Spider-Man who has yet to be cast.

Mr. Holmes: New Trailer Features Ian McKellan and Plenty of Sleuthing

10 hours ago

After playing two beloved fantastical characters of legend with Magneto and Gandalf, Ian McKellan is going for the hat trick in Mr. Holmes, in which he plays the real-life Sherlock Holmes looking back on a life of sleuthing and how he was adapted as a character in popular culture. The film is directed by Oscar favorite Bill Condon, and distributor Roadside Attractions has just released a new trailer for Mr. Holmes that gives a greater sense of what we can expect from this latest twist on the Holmes lore. This trailer makes it very clear that the film will be as much about legacy and perception as it will be about the peculiarities of the titular character and his bevy of famed cases and detecting techniques. McKellan looks to be in fine, witty form as Holmes, and there's already been some awards buzz surrounding his performance, which is understandable considering »

Monday TV Ratings: Gotham Gets Finale Bump, The Originals Stays Steady

10 hours ago

The Monday TV ratings from May 4th are in; here are some of the highlights: Keeping with the pattern of the last few weeks, NBC's The Voice was number one at 8 p.m. with a 2.3 rating (in the key 18-49 demographic) and 9.7 million viewers, despite being down three tenths from last week. And in that same vein, ABC's Dancing with the Stars trailed it with a 1.9 rating, but 12.25 million viewers, though it reached a new low for this season (also known in competition show terms as a "cycle.") The season finale of Gotham on Fox got a little bump of two tenths to a 1.7 rating and 4.86 million viewers. [caption id="attachment_446865" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via The CW[/caption] On the CW, The Originals was steady with last week's 0.5 rating and 1.14 million viewers. In the next hour, Jane the Virgin was up a tenth to a 0.5 rating and 1.03 million viewers. The Gotham boost didn't translate to the 9 p. »

X-men: Days Of Future Past Rogue Cut Release Date Set for This Summer

10 hours ago

We’ve known for a while now that an extended version of X-Men: Days of Future Past was coming to home video, dubbed the “Rogue Cut”, and now specific release date details about the alternate cut have been unveiled. Director Bryan Singer took to Periscope today to announce that the Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on July 14th. We previously learned that the extended version of the film will be 17 minutes longer, and Singer again reiterated that amount of new footage in today’s update. You can already pre-order the release right here, and judging by the image above, there are some serious changes in store. The initial cut of Days of Future Past included an extended sequence towards the beginning of the movie that essentially saw Patrick Stewart’s Charles and Ian McKellen’s Erik on a mission together during the future-set portion of the movie. »

Joss Whedon Wanted Spider-Man and Captain Marvel for Avengers: Age Of Ultron

11 hours ago

We’ve already shared quotes from Joss Whedon’s appearance on the Empire podcast regarding Avengers: Age of Ultron story changes, deleted scenes and what happened with the cave scene, but we’ve still got another big detail to tell you about that involves Captain Marvel and Spider-Man. I had an absolute blast with the film, but there’s no denying that Age of Ultron was a rather forceful attempt at setting up an overabundance of Phase 3 films, characters and scenarios. However, there was actually a point when Whedon considered adding even more heroes to the roster: "I said, 'It would be great if we could just add a few more … If we could have a Captain Marvel there ...' And they talked about it. And Spider-Man, we could do that too, because Sony had approached us during the first movie about a little integration, so I would have put both of them in, »

Mad Max Redux: A Retrospective Review of George Miller’s 1979 Film, Mad Max

11 hours ago

In 1979, the cinematic world was smack in the middle of resurgence of Australian films, a time period that would come to be known as Australian New Wave. Riding the crest of this movement was Mad Max, debut feature director George Miller's leather-clad, blacktop-melting road epic that launched Mel Gibson's career as an international movie star. Cobbled together for less than half-a-million dollars, Mad Max went on to gross $100 million worldwide and launched a franchise that continues to this day with Mad Max: Fury Road. And yet, the safe bet in 1979 would have been that this film would simply crash and burn. First-time feature director Miller was, up until this point, an emergency room doctor exposed to all sorts of violent injuries and deaths. It was through his interest in film that Miller met up with amateur filmmaker Byron Kennedy at a summer film school, where they formed a »

The Strain Season 2 Trailer: Bringing the Fight to the Vampires

11 hours ago

The first season of FX's vampire series The Strain, created by Guillermo del Toro, was a surprisingly fun, completely gross, and occasionally scary entry into the TV horror genre (it was also something very, very different for FX). Its vampires were also a fascinating hybrid: part bloodsucker, part zombie, and part nightmarish creature with a projectile tongue. The first season saw our ragtag group of heroes getting The Master on the run, but failing to defeat him as his newly created minions continued to infect and turn Manhattanites into creatures of the night. Now in this first full trailer for Season 2 from EW, it seems that Manhattan is overrun, but the survivors are not ready to give up yet: (Fyi: The trailer is on autoplay, and I apologize for that. I can usually defeat it in the code, but couldn't with this one) Finally using his knowledge of infectious diseases to do something useful, »

Joss Whedon Reveals Thor’s Cut Subplot from Avengers: Age Of Ultron

11 hours ago

Marvel’s sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron is a big, big movie, but it could’ve been even bigger. Joss Whedon previously revealed that the first cut of the film was 195 minutes long, so obviously there’s some significant footage missing. You can especially feel some of that lost story when it comes to the characters that get less to do in the movie than others, namely Thor. Chris Hemsworth’s character certainly has his moments in Age of Ultron, but it’s clear that his arc was streamlined in the editing process. In speaking with the Empire Podcast, Whedon revealed just exactly what Thor was originally doing in that cave, and it’s a fairly intricate subplot: "There was a 195-minute cut of this movie. [As concerns the Thor / Erik subplot], the original scene was that Thor went to speak to the Norn and how it would work was that he’d go in the »
