Community Recap: “Wedding Videography”

8 hours ago

Well folks, "Wedding Videography" is going to be very hit or miss for some of you. Now to be fair, this is Community and you do know what this show is about, but still, this one is out there. The episode begins with Jeff “teaching” his law class by pouring himself a drink and taking ice from his desk drawer. As Jeff begins to explain that he was going to teach the class something past writing the word, “Law” on the blackboard, he brings Community side character Garrett up in front of the students. Garrett begins discussing marriage law and segues into asking a girl in the back of the class, Stacy, whether or not she’d marry him. Before Stacy can answer, Jeff winces as he believes it’s a foregone conclusion that she’ll say no, only for him to be shocked when she in fact accepts. It’s ironic, »

League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Reboot in the Works at Fox

8 hours ago

Well this was inevitable. In the wake of Marvel’s Avengers series and just ahead of Warner Bros.Justice League “prequel” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 20th Century Fox is reviving its own “team of superheroes” property The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Based on the Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill graphic novel of the same name, the story finds Victorian-era literary characters such as The Invisible Man, Dorian Gray, Captain Nemo, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde teaming up to fight bad guys. Per Variety, Chronicle and Predators producer John Davis is onboard to produce this new adaptation through his Davis Entertainment banner. Fox first attempted a feature film adaptation of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in 2003, with an ornery Sean Connery leading a cast that included Shane West as Tom Sawyer, a character the studio added in order to make the property more appealing to younger viewers. »

Burying The Ex: New Trailer Teases Joe Dante’s Horror Rom-Com

10 hours ago

A new trailer for Joe Dante's zombie horror comedy Burying the Ex has hit the web, and it promises plenty of Dante's trademark mishmash of feel good comedy and gross out horror. As the man behind Gremlins, The 'Burbs and The Hole, Dante always has my attention, especially when he returns to his genre roots. From a script by Alan Trezza, Burying the Ex stars Anton Yelchin as Max, a nice guy eager to break up with his overbearing girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) when fate intervenes and she gets hit by a bus. Weeks later he meets his dream girl Olivia (Alexandra Daddario, who is making a career out of playing dream girls), but everything goes to hell when Evelyn rises from the grave convinced she and Max are still an item. While the set up is strikingly similar to last year's lackluster Life After Beth, one look at »

Point Break Remake Trailer Dives into the World of Extreme Sports

11 hours ago

Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have released the first Point Break trailer for director Ericson Core’s (Invincible) upcoming remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 film of the same name. The redo stars Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, a young FBI agent who infiltrates a team of thrill-seeking athletes led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). There's a strong Fast & Furious vibe that permeates throughout this trailer, which is more than a little ironic considering A. the first F&F film was essentially a remake of the original Point Break and B. This remake's director Ericson Core was the director of photography on The Fast and the Furious. Where the two differ, however, is that Warner Bros. seems to be taking a gravely serious tone with Point Break, to the point that there are quite a few lines delivered in earnest here that come off as incredibly cheesy. But despite all »

11 hours ago

Good news, everyone! Jerry Seinfeld’s webseries Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is, quite simply, one of the best things on the internet, and the first trailer for Season 6 has landed online to tease us with a slew of fascinating new guests.

Belle Director to Helm David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike in A United Kingdom

11 hours ago

Filmmaker Amma Asante, who directed last year’s underrated costume drama Belle, has lined up an exciting follow-up project. THR reports that she has come aboard to direct the racial drama A United Kingdom, which has Selma actor David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike in negotiations to star, and a script written by Guy Hibbert (Complicit). The film tells the true story of Seretse Khama, a member of the royal family of a former English colony and south African nation called Bechuanaland, which eventually became Botswana with Khama as its first president. Preceding this development, however, Khama was embroiled in controversy when he married a white woman in 1949. His uncle attempted to depose him, and he ended up being banned from his home country South Africa in 1951 due to its illegal stance on interracial marriage. Oyelowo is also producing the project, and Asante makes an exciting addition to the team. Belle was only her second film, »

Is Game Of Thrones Season 6 Returning to Pyke?

12 hours ago

Warning: Thar be book spoilers. Some of these character descriptions and discussions below reveal book characters not yet introduced in the HBO series. Leave now if you don't want to know more! Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have teased big deviations from George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire source novels going into the show’s sixth season (as it seems like Season 5 will tackle most of the major plots from  A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons — the most recently published book). As part of that, book readers have assumed that a major storyline from Affc has been erased from the series, as part of Weiss and Benioff’s desire to streamline the narrative: the goings-on at House Greyjoy and Pyke. [caption id="attachment_460587" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via HBO[/caption] Game of Thrones waited until Season 5 to really introduce Dorne and the stories there, using »

In the aftermath, an Lafd Search and Rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter (Alexandra Daddario).

Second Chance: Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown Deserves Another Look

14 hours ago

In 2005, the new film from writer/director Cameron Crowe was a highly anticipated event. His Almost Famous follow-up Vanilla Sky was an odd sojourn into psychological thriller territory, but with its Middle America setting and central love story, surely Elizabethtown would be a return to form. Unfortunately, reviews were unkind and the movie failed to catch on in a significant way with audiences. But while the film has issues (Orlando Bloom being miscast is its most glaring offense), it’s unfairly viewed as a failure in Crowe’s career when in fact it’s a film with plenty of merit. One of the things that Crowe absolutely nails in Elizabethtown is his portrayal of the American South. It’s not a clichéd or glib portrait of “small town livin’,” but instead comes off as earnest and kind. Crowe takes his time in these scenes, and while Bloom’s Drew Baylor »

The Diary Of A Teenage Girl: First Trailer For the Smash Sundance Hit

14 hours ago

Sony Pictures Classics has released the first trailer for the coming-of-age Sundance hit The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Based on Phoebe Gloeckner's novel of the same name, the film stars Bel Powley as a fifteen-year-old girl navigating the counter culture haze of the 1970s who begins an affair with her mother's (Kristen Wiig) extremely handsome and much older boyfriend (Alexander Skarsgard). The Diary of a Teenage Girl marks the feature debut for writer/director Marielle Heller. The film gathered a lot of buzz when it premiered at Sundance to positive reviews for its frank approach to adolescent sexuality and unique visual style. Teenage female sexuality is tricky territory and rarely explored with the thoughtfulness it deserves. It's encouraging to see a film that aims to address the complex subject without backing away from unsettling elements or veering into cheap exploitation of lurid subject matter. Check out the first »

New X-men: Apocalypse Set Photo Teases Caliban

14 hours ago

In keeping with his steady stream of images from the set, filmmaker Bryan Singer has shared a new picture from the Vancouver soundstages of X-Men: Apocalypse teasing the appearance of a mutant we haven’t yet seen in the long-running film franchise. In the caption for the photo of the dimly lit set, Singer says he’s in the midst of shooting Caliban’s place of “business”. Caliban is an albino mutant who first appeared in the comics in 1981 and has the ability to track other mutants. However, it’s Caliban’s connection to X-Men: Apocalypse villain Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac) that probably explains his appearance in the film. In comics lore, Caliban is augmented by Apocalypse to become one of the supervillain’s four horsemen (of the apocalypse fame, obviously), so it’s a safe bet that he’ll play an integral role in the plot. However, since »

Robert Rodriguez to Direct Jonny Quest Movie

15 hours ago

After making borderline-animated films for the past few years, Robert Rodriguez is taking on a live-action adaptation of an actual cartoon. THR is reporting that the Sin City director is set to adapt Hanna-Barbera’s Jonny Quest for Warner Bros. with Adrian Askarieh (Hitman: Agent 47) and Dan Lin (The Lego Movie) producing. Rodriguez will write the script alongside Terry Rossio, who penned the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films and The Lone Ranger with writing partner Ted Elliott, but who's been going out on his own as of late. Rodriguez and Elliott will be working from a previous draft written by Dan Mazeu. For those who are unfamiliar with the Johnny Quest series, Wikipedia says the cartoon was in the vein of “Doc Savage, Tom Swift, and John Carter of Mars.” The eponymous character was a young boy who went on adventures with his father Dr. Benton Quest, »

The Legend Of Conan Will Honor Locales, Religions and Traditions of 1982 Original

15 hours ago

We’ve been talking about The Legend of Conan movie for quite some time now, but the film has yet to go into production. Last summer producer Fredrik Malmberg predicted that they’d start shooting in the spring of 2015, but clearly that never happened so now he’s got his eye on a fall start instead, soon after Arnold Schwarzenegger finishes promoting Terminator: Genisys: “I think this fall would be perfect. The sooner the better!” [caption id="attachment_464173" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via The Movie Database[/caption] On top of that, The Arnold Fans also shared a few quotes from writer Chris Morgan revealing how The Legend of Conan will connect to the 1982 original: “A light-hearted Conan?! Crom! No. Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, »

Fantastic Four Videos Show off the Microscopic Anatomy of the Heroes

16 hours ago

I've actually enjoyed a handful of Fantastic Four promos, but four new character videos just popped up on the film's official Twitter account and they're all pretty dull. There's no footage in them, just digital imagery exploring the "microscopic anatomy" of the characters paired with voiceover from Reg E. Cathey's Franklin Storm. Yes, the pieces do reveal important information about Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell), but the presentation makes it all feel a bit hokey and forced. Check out the new Fantastic Four character videos for yourself below. The film hits theaters on August 7th and also stars Toby Kebbell. Ambitious mind. Scientific prodigy. #ReedRichards #FantasticFour https://t.co/1PQWvSQTJG — Fantastic Four (@FantasticFour) May 13, 2015 Independent. Beautiful.

John Williams Says Star Wars: The Force Awakens Score Will Reference Earlier Themes

16 hours ago

If I have to say nice things about the Star Wars prequels, I can point to John Williams’ scores. His work remains top-notch and I love “Duel of the Fates” and “Confrontation with Count Dooku”. He knew how to create a rousing Star Wars world that George Lucas forgot, and I hope that Williams’ has still got it when it comes to the Star Wars sequels, or at least, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is currently the only one he’s signed on to do. Speaking to Vanity Fair, William said that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens score will make some references to earlier pieces, although he wouldn’t specify which ones: There are some scenes where we do make reference to earlier thematic pieces. We haven’t done it yet, but we’re planning to do it. It’s something that I think will seem »

Tomorrowland Deleted Scene: Pixar’s Animated Backstory for Plus Ultra (Video)

17 hours ago

Warning: This post contains plot spoilers for Tomorrowland. If you haven't seen the film, you might want to skip this video for now. Tomorrowland features George Clooney as a former boy-genius named Frank. As a kid, Frank gained entry to "an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as Tomorrowland.” As explained in the theatrical cut of the film, Tomorrowland was created by Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Jules Verne and Gustave Eiffel, a group dubbed Plus Ultra. However, according to Business Insider (via Movies.com), originally, director Brad Bird planned to give Plus Ultra much more screen time via a short animated sequence that was created by the folks at Pixar. Eddie Pasquarello, the co-visual effects supervisor on the sequence, explained where Bird intended to include the video: “It was pitched as a ride under a ride. When Frank drops below the ‘It’s A Small World’ ride »

Inside Out: 39 Things to Know about Making a Movie at Pixar

18 hours ago

It’ll never cease to amaze me how many people and how much time goes into making a feature film, but while visiting the Pixar campus in San Francisco back in April, I got the opportunity to get an especially in depth look at what it took to make Inside Out and it’s an absolutely mind-blowing process. The day after screening the first hour of the movie, we got the opportunity to participate in five presentations - one for the story department, one for production design, one for layout, one for animation and one for the lighting department. Each gave us a play-by-play of what they do on a daily basis covering the technical and creative requirements of their jobs, showing examples of their work and how the material changes over the course of production, and tons more. Warning: This is a long one, but it was hard enough »

Is Jaden Smith Starring in Static Shock?

18 hours ago

Will Smith is playing Deadshot in Suicide Squad. Jada Pinkett Smith played Fish Mooney on Gotham. Now the DC Comics world may have hooked another member of the Smith family. Speaking to Flicks and the City about superheroes, actor Tyler James Williams (Dear White People) noted how “it’s great to see Static Shock is happening with Jaden.” We last reported on Static Shock back in October when Warner Bros. announced that its digital division would be developing series based on the DC Comics along with Mortal Kombat and Critters. Django Unchained producer Reginald Hudlin is taking the lead on the Static Shock series, which will feature Virgil Hawkins, aka the superhero “Static”, who has advanced powers of electromagnetism. [caption id="attachment_250342" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Sony Pictures[/caption] We should definitely take Williams’ comment with a grain of salt.

Watch: Dwayne Johnson Officiates a Surprise Wedding

18 hours ago

There's a reason Dwayne Johnson's movies hit it big at the box office and he's busy picking up one new project after the next. He's insanely charismatic and really does come across as the nicest guy. Whether he's kicking ass on the big screen, hamming it up on SNL or turning on the charm during interviews, odds are, the guy's going to make me smile and that's definitely the case in this brand new prank video from Screen Junkies. First, a little background. During the Pain & Gain junket back in 2013, Nick Mundy had a little fun with the cast by walking in and essentially blowing all of his interviews by being a huge The Rock fan. Sure enough, the interviews themselves are awful, but they were cut into a hilarious package, accumulating well over 500,000 views and sparking a lasting social media/junket friendship between Johnson and Mundy. With San Andreas »
