Sons Of Anarchy Recap: “Greensleeves”

6 hours ago

Sons of Anarchy continued its bloody final ride in "Greensleeves," creating some excellent tension along the way.  While it seemed like Juice could be the lynchpin regarding the revelation of Gemma's sins and potential demise, "Greensleeves" made it clear that Gemma has now fully become a Lady MacBeth, or even a Raskolnikov figure (though given Sutter's Shakespearean partiality, I would presume the former).  What was once considered a righteous act begins devolving into paranoia and madness on her part.  Hit the jump to find out "who puts the 'oh' in ho." Before anything else, we need to talk about Bobby.  Damn it Sons of Anarchy, don't let him be dead.  Otto worked without an eye or a tongue for awhile … Bobby doesn't have to be dead.  Regardless, though, the pain and torture and humiliation he was subjected to was heartbreaking.  The show has really raised the stakes this year, insofar »

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: “A Hen in the Wolf House”

6 hours ago

Welcome back, true believers!  Our latest installment promises to introduce a long standing character from the comics into the Marvel cinematic universe in the form of Bobbi Morse, played by Adrianne Palicki.  Bobbi, aka Mockingbird, is the ex-wife of Avenger, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner in the movies), and has found herself on quite a few incarnations of the team herself.  In our most recent installment of the series, the gang will find themselves at odds with Ms. Morse as she is revealed to be the current head of security for Hydra.  Whether or not this is a con or a new take on the character is yet to be seen, though it would be funny to see how many undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. agents there are in Hydra at this point with the recent episode focusing on Simmons.  (Maybe there are no actual Hydra agents left!)  Will the »

Bachelor Party TV Series in the Works for ABC

6 hours ago

The film-to-tv trend continues with the 1984 comedy Bachelor Party.  Tom Hanks starred as the husband-to-be who has to survive the ultimate bachelor party while staying faithful to his fiancée.  This new rendition is only loosely based on the original narrative and will come in the format of a half-hour comedy anthology series geared towards examining relationships and the institution of marriage. ABC scored the show via a big put pilot commitment with Jason Winer set to direct as long as his schedule permits.  Should the Bachelor Party TV series get an order, Winer and Max Winkler will then alternate directing the episodes.  Hit the jump for more on the new show. According to Deadline, New Girl’s Jj Philbin and Josh Malmuth came up with the concept, which centers on three different couples.  There’s one that’s first falling in love, one that’s about to get married and »

7 hours ago

Warner Bros. just gave its new digital division a name and unveiled its first development slate to go along with it.  Blue Ribbon Content will focus on delivering short-form, live-action series under the guidance of Sam Register who assumed the role of President of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series back in April. Blue Ribbon’s got a lot going on, but the highlights include a new Mortal Kombat series, an adaptation of the comic Static and a new rendition of the cult classic Critters as well.  Hit the jump for more on all of them.

The Flash Recap: “Things You Can’t Outrun”

8 hours ago

Great news for those of you who have been enjoying The Flash on The CW so far: the show has recently been picked up for a full season!  It's not really a surprising bit of news, but it's nice to make it official all the same.  Now the news may leave fans of the show feeling a bit misty, while those who aren't yet on board may walk away feeling ... gassy.  And that, my friends, is how we tie in the Villain of the Week featured on tonight's episode, "Things You Can't Outrun." Hit the jump for The Flash recap. Some people aren't too pleased with the opening and closing monologues from the title character, but I like these little moments where Barry/The Flash gets to let a bit of his personality shine through all on his own.  Take it or leave it though, it's not essential to the show's enjoyable nature. »

Ray Fisher Says He Didn’t Know He Was Getting a Solo Cyborg Movie

9 hours ago

Apparently now that Warner Bros. has unveiled the release dates for its DC movie slate, the stars can start talking about the films – to a degree.  Just yesterday we shared some quotes from Jason Momoa on Aquaman and now we’ve got Ray Fisher talking Cyborg, too. The guy doesn’t have a single feature film credit to his name, but soon enough, he’ll have two pretty big ones – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part One.  On top of that, much to Fisher’s surprise, he’s getting a Cyborg standalone movie, too.  Hit the jump to find out which Justice League members Fisher has met and what it was like to first find he’s getting a solo movie mere hours before the Warner Bros./DC release date announcement hit. Even though Fisher was a total unknown in the film realm prior to his casting, »

Bad Santa 2 Still Coming Even if Billy Bob Thornton Admits It Won’t Be as Good as the First

9 hours ago

I liked Bad Santa when I saw it in 2003.  I actually haven't seen it since then so I have no idea how it ages or holds up or any of that, but apparently there's an appetite for a sequel.  Makes sense, I guess I'd probably check out Bad Santa 2 if it happens.  A few years back Steve Pink was going to helm, but then those duties fell to Doug Ellin.  Ellin is still busy wrapping up the artistic juggernaut of the Entourage movie, so even though there's a chance his Kubrickian penchant for perfection will keep him in the editing room for another few years on that project, one could also reasonably assume he'd make time for this sooner or later. If the script is good.  That's what they're waiting on.  Even though Billy Bob Thornton himself wisely admits there's no way they can top the first one (the »

Madea’S Tough Love Trailer: Meet Tyler Perry’s Animated Madea

10 hours ago

There’s no new Madea movie hitting theaters this year for the first time in three years, but you’re not completely off the hook.  Tyler Perry may have swapped his Madea getup for a super dapper suit to portray Tanner Bolt in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, but he’s still unleashing his inner Madea for a new animated film, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Tough Love. I’ve completely lost patience for the film franchise and for Madea in general, but I’ve also got to admit, the new Madea’s Tough Love trailer actually makes me think that the character would have been better suited for animation all along.  That voice is as grating as ever and the jokes aren’t particularly amusing either, but it is easier to be a little more forgiving when viewing her antics in cartoon format.  Take a look at the trailer for yourself after the jump. »

Kim Basinger Joins Shane Black’s Nice Guys; Patrick Stewart to Play White Supremacist Leader in Green Room

10 hours ago

An L.A. Confidential reunion of sorts is in the works.  THR reports that Kim Basinger is set to join the cast of director Shane Black’s 1970s noir film The Nice Guys, reuniting her with her L.A. Confidential co-star Russell Crowe, who plays a hired leg breaker that teams up with a private eye (Ryan Gosling) in order to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star.  Basinger will play the chief justice in the film, a character who is in bed with criminals.  The film returns Black to noir territory after co-writing and directing one of the best Marvel films yet, Iron Man 3.  The cast is filling out quite nicely, with Matt Bomer, Cara Delevingne, Keith David, and Beau Knapp all onboard.  The film is slated for release on June 17, 2016. Hit the jump for casting news concerning Patrick Stewart »

Trailer, Poster and Images for Starry Eyes, a New Horror Classic

11 hours ago

I have seen Starry Eyes twice now.  The first time was back in March at SXSW and while I immediately connected with the film and liked it very much, I wound up lobbing a few criticisms at it as well. As the months wore on the movie grew in my head, there was just something about this inexpensive indie that had worn its way into me.  So much so that, several months later, I asked if I could host the Los Angeles premiere of the film.  A second viewing that night not only ameloriated some of the vague concerns I had after the first viewing of the movie, it actually surpassed the version of the film I'd had playing in my head for months after the fact.  Starry Eyes isn't just good... it's fantastic.  That's not hyperbole.  I know some of the people involved and would tell them to their »

Keanu Reeves Talks John Wick, the Action Sequences, if He’ll Direct Again, the John Rain TV Series, Eli Roth’s Knock Knock, and More

11 hours ago

As I've said again and again on Twitter and on the site, I absolutely loved John Wick.  Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have crafted a fantastic action thriller that's absolutely worth your time and money.  When I recently hosted a screening in NYC, there were plenty of laughs, gasps, and tons of applause during the incredible action set pieces.  In the film, Keanu Reeves stars as an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.  Trust me, if you like action movies, this is a must see film.  For more on John Wick, watch this trailer, see Evan shoot people in the face, and here's all our previous coverage. Last week in New York City I sat down with Keanu Reeves for an extended interview.  He talked about how he got involved in the film, script changes, the challenge of shooting the various action sequences, »

New Pee-wee Herman Movie is “Imminent” According to Paul Reubens

12 hours ago

As long as this is closer to Pee Wee's Big Adventure and a decided departure from 1988's ill fated Big Top Pee-Wee I think we'll be in fairly decent shape.  Paul Reubens is claiming that an official announcement regarding a new Pee-Wee Herman movie is almost incredibly f*cking nigh.  This is excellent news considering the fact that it's been well over two years since our last update on the project.  Given the fact that Reubens sounded optimistic then (though not quite this optimistic), let's hope there's a bit more going on than last time around. There's no word on if Judd Apatow is still involved or if they are using any of the script that he worked on, but I'm hoping there's a strong steward aboard either way because I don't want my Pee-Wee ship sailing rudderless.  Hit the jump for more on the new Pee-Wee Herman movie.  Reubens »

Are We Getting a Scream TV Series with No Ghostface?

12 hours ago

The Scream franchise didn’t hold up particularly well, but the 1996 original is still one of my favorite films of all time so if you do anything with the property, even turn it into a tacky tween-approved MTV show, I’m going to watch it.  However, R.J. Tolbert of Fun World, the company that owns the rights to the Ghostface mask, just dropped a little detail that threatens to decimate any interest I have in it; there may be no Ghostface in MTV’s Scream show. No Ghostface?  Why call it Scream at all then?  Hit the jump for more on the Scream TV series including what Tolbert had to say about the lack of his iconic mask. Ghostface.co.uk reached out to Tolbert to ask about Fun World’s involvement in the Scream series.  Here’s what Tolbert wrote back: “Please note, that I had been in »

The CW Orders Full Seasons of The Flash and Jane The Virgin

13 hours ago

To the surprise of no one, The CW announced today that it has ordered a full season of freshman series The Flash.  Additionally, the network has also picked up the well-received comedy-drama Jane the Virgin for a full season.  The Flash is, of course, the network’s sort-of-spinoff of Arrow, as it follows the titular DC Comics character’s exploits in Central City, as played by Grant Gustin.  The show exists in the same universe as Arrow, with a crossover planned to occur during Episode 8 of this current season.  The Flash has earned mostly positive notices and has performed solidly in the ratings for the network—in fact it was the most-watched series premiere in The CW history.  Catch up on all of Dave’s recaps right here. Jane the Virgin, meanwhile, has earned strong praise from critics.  Starring Gina Rodriguez, the show revolves around a religious young Latina woman »

A Horrifying Education: Martyrs

13 hours ago

I'll give this to my teachers: When they assigned torture porn, they didn't do half-measures. I knew of Martyrs by reputation, with the reputation being a mix of "One of the goriest films ever," and "Gaaaaaahhhhh."  And that got me excited because this was coming from die-hard horror fans; people who have seen the worst of the worst and they were still affected by this film.  I was ready to jump in with both feet by watching it in my darkened apartment right before going to bed. Instead of making me afraid of possible nightmares, Martyrs helped me drift off to sleep by being so boring. [Spoilers and gory images ahead] The film had a promising start by looking like it would be an examination of the horror of child abuse filtered through a supernatural lens.  As a child, Lucie (Mylène Jampanoï) was tortured by mysterious kidnappers, and her only friend at the asylum was »

Lynn Shelton Talks Laggies, How She Became Involved With the Film, Working With Keira Knightley and Chloë Grace Moritz, and Her Next Film I’M Down

13 hours ago

Remaining true to her indie roots while taking a step closer to the mainstream, Lynn Shelton brings her unique directorial voice to Laggies, one of her best films to date about a 28-year-old slacker (Keira Knightley) in the throes of a quarter-life crisis.  This is the first time Shelton has directed from a script written by someone else, but Andrea Seigel’s well written screenplay is a nice fit with the rest of Shelton’s body of work.  Laggies is also the largest scale film production of Shelton’s career and was shot in and around her hometown of Seattle.  Opening October 24th, the romantic comedy also stars Sam Rockwell and Chloë Grace Moretz. In an exclusive interview, Shelton talked about how the project first emerged, what appealed to her about the story and characters, her fantastic collaboration with Seigel, letting others worry about the film’s financing while she focused on directing, »

Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Pretend to Be a Dragon in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug Extended Edition Clip

13 hours ago

One of the more impressive aspects of director Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was the characterization of the titular dragon.  Benedict Cumberbatch not only provided the voice for the sleepy/cranky character, but he did performance capture as well that was then used to inform the animation of the dragon’s movements.  In anticipation of the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition on Blu-ray, a behind-the-scenes clip has been released that shows Cumberbatch performing as Smaug.  It’s a pretty fun watch, and you can definitely see how Cumberbatch’s movements influenced the finished product.  Additionally, Warner Bros. has released an assortment of other clips (both from the film and behind-the-scenes) from the Ee release that are sure to pique interest, and we've included them as well. Take a look at the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition clips after the jump. »
