Lex Luther and Iris West Get Dropped from Justice League

1 hour ago

Rumors had been circulating for months that Jessie Eisenberg's portrayal of Lex Luthor had been cut from Justice League. Now new test screenings have confirmed that Lex Luthor and the Iris West character have both been given the axe. There has been a lot (to put it lightly) of speculation pertaining to Joss Whedon's take-over of Justice League after Zack Snyder had to bow out due to a family tragedy. Rumors have been swirling that Whedon went in and has totally remade the movie and cut out quite a bit.

Batman-News.com reports that Kiersey Clemons and Jessie Eisenberg have both been cut from Justice League test screenings. Clemons recently talked about her experience on set and mentioned that her scenes were, "f%$@ing sick," but we won't be seeing them any time soon unless Whedon does another edit before the movie hits theaters in November. Hopefully some of »

Canceled Twisted Metal Movie Almost Starred Nicolas Cage

1 hour ago

We've still yet to see a properly awesome video game movie, but Hollywood keeps on trying. There are plenty of video game movies that never came to be that could have been awesome, but we'll sadly never know. One such movie is Twisted Metal, which was going to be based on the Sony video game series of the same name. Now, director Brian Taylor (Crank) reveals what the movie would have been, and it would have involved Nicolas Cage with Mad Max: Fury Road style action.

Brian Taylor recently spoke with Collider about his Twisted Metal movie that never was. He was hired to do the movie in 2012, which just so happens to be when Sony launched a rebooted version of the game. As is usually the case with these things, the budget got in the way and prevented Taylor from doing what he wanted to do with it. Here's what he had to say. »

Quentin Tarantino Is Open to Directing a Star Trek Movie

3 hours ago

Quentin Tarantino is an increasingly rare breed in the modern Hollywood landscape. He's a true auteur director who makes the movies that he wants to make and they wind up being financially successful and award-worthy. Yet, somehow, he's never been coaxed by a big studio to direct a franchise entry of any kind. So what franchise might be able to change that? Star Trek, as it turns out, could possibly make Tarantino boldly go where he's never gone before.

TMZ caught up with Quentin Tarantino very briefly recently on his way to catch a flight. When asked if he would actually want to direct a Star Trek movie, he wouldn't totally rule it out. Here's what he had to say about it.

"It'd be worth taking a meeting about."

Stephen King's 1922 Trailer Teases Mike Patton's Spooky Score

3 hours ago

Netflix has just released the first trailer for their adaptation of Stephen King's novella, 1922, which is set to debut next month. Not only does the trailer look creepy, but it also sounds unsettling, thanks to Mike Patton's fantastic soundtrack that recalls a twisted take on a Hitchcock score. In a recent interview to promote the incredibly successful It, King alerted fans that this adaptation was really special and that it really "creeped" him out when he saw the rough cut. The legendary horror author also mentioned that he couldn't stop thinking about it, which is a good indicator since he basically said the same thing about the big screen adaptation if It.

The first trailer for 1922 comes to us courtesy of the official Netflix YouTube account and it is an uncomfortable two and a half minutes to say the least. Adding to the uneasiness is the original score »

Who Yoda Thought Was the Real Chosen One in Star Wars

8 hours ago

Is Luke Skywalker the true chosen one? Yoda never thought so, an idea revealed in a. new book called Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View. And that idea makes sense. Ever since we were first introduced to Yoda in Empire Strikes Back, he never really seemed to care for Luke, and was always apprehensive about the young Jedi in training, complaining that he was too young, not ready, and anything else that would get Obi-Wan to calm down and back off. But the biggest reveal came midway through Empire when Yoda reveals to Kenobi that there 'is another'.

And we learn that this other he speaks of is none other than Luke's own twin sister, Leia. Sure, Empire Strikes Back gave fans one of the biggest surprises in cinematic history when it divulged the true fact that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker's real father. Return of the Jedi »

22 hours ago

A new petition has been set up by Gianna Collier-Pitts, a Harlem resident and GLAAD ambassador, to have Wonder Woman 2 explore Diana's bisexuality.
