Sony's star-studded Jumanji remake has only been filming for a few weeks now, but thanks to stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan, we have already seen plenty of set photos and videos through social media. Today we have a new video from Dwayne Johnson, which shows how he can get on his co-stars' bad side, along with a photo of Kevin Hart using a rock to become taller than The Rock, and Karen Gillan's stunt doubles. It seems there's never a dull moment on the set of Jumanji 2 with this cast.

The video, which Dwayne Johnson posted to Instagram earlier today, shows him being driven to the set, while the rest of his co-stars are forced to walk. The video shows that Kevin Hart isn't terribly pleased that The Rock gets to drive, while passing the rest of his co-stars, including Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Nick Jonas. »

How Does Rogue One Connect to Star Wars Rebels?

10 hours ago

One question Star Wars fans have been wondering, though hasn't been answered, is how Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ties into Disney Xd's current animated series Star Wars Rebels. So far, we haven't been given many clues. But Rebels Executive producer Dave Filoni has now offered his take on the matter.

Rogue One is the first-ever Star Wars spin-off movie made for the big screen. Sure, there were a couple of Ewok movies and an animated Clone Wars feature film. But this is an honest to god Star Wars movie that takes place in the same universe, but isn't tied to the Skywalker bloodline saga, save for a very cool and important Darth Vader cameo. What we know about the movie is that it takes place in the days just leading up to the events seen in the original 1977 Star Wars, which was later retitled A New Hope.

The Purge Is Getting a Prequel Movie and TV Series Spin-Off

11 hours ago

The Purge has proved to be a really lucrative franchise, which culminated with The Purge: Election Year over the summer. And since money talks, the popular horror series is far from over. According to franchise creator James DeMonaco, not only is a fourth movie on the way, but a TV series based on The Purge is also in development.

Fair warning, if you have not yet seen The Purge: Election Year and plan to, this article will contain minor spoilers for the movie. In a recent interview with CinemaBlend, James DeMonaco, who directed all three movies in the franchise so far, revealed that there are indeed plans for a fourth movie. The Purge: Election Year ended with the annual crime friendly holiday being abolished, so it didn't seem very likely that there would be a follow-up. That is true, because the fourth Purge movie will be a prequel, according to the director, »

Dunkirk Makes Christopher Nolan the Highest Paid Director in Hollywood

12 hours ago

It is very difficult to become a highly respected director in Hollywood and it can be equally hard to get paid well for the type of work that gets one that kind of respect. In many cases, respect doesn't equal a massive payday, but in the chase of Christopher Nolan, the two are going hand in hand. His latest movie Dunkirk, a World War II epic due out next summer, has officially made him the highest paid director in Hollywood.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Nolan will be getting paid $20 million up-front for Dunkirk, which represents a small fortune on its own. However, the director is also said to be getting 20 percent of the gross for Dunkirk and If his last handful of directorial efforts are any indicator, that will represent a tremendous payday. This is said to be the most lucrative deal for a director since Peter Jackson »

Will Doctor Strange Unlock the Ultimate Universe?

14 hours ago

After Marvel's Comic-Con presentation, which included a new trailer for Doctor Strange, director Scott Derrickson teased that this highly-anticipated superhero movie will introduce fans to the Marvel Multiverse, much like the original comic books did in the 1960s. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed during a set visit interview that there is much more to the multiverse, teasing that it's possible the Ultimate Universe could be shown in the McU as well. Here's what he had to say below.

"When comic book fans hear parallel dimensions or multiple dimensions, they think of Earth 616 and Earth 617 or Earth 618. That's all possible, but what we're playing with in this world is that there are dimensions. That the other dimensions are not just parallel realities."

The Ultimate Universe, a.k.a. Earth-1610, was introduced in 2000 with the launch of Ultimate Spider-Man, followed by Ultimate X-Men in 2001, The Ultimates in 2002, and Ultimate Fantastic Four »

16 hours ago

Last month, the final #FastFriday post from the Fast & Furious 8 set featured a cast photo, revealing that production had wrapped on this highly-anticipated sequel. And that the first trailer would arrive sometime in December. Earlier this week, Vin Diesel shared a new photo on Facebook, announcing that the first trailer will arrive on December 11. He also subtly addressed the rumors of increasing tensions between himself and his co-star, Dwayne Johnson.

Dwayne Johnson surprised fans last month with a Facebook post where he called out some of his male co-stars, calling them "candy asses." While he wouldn't specify what co-stars were the target of his rant, several rumors surfaced that claimed the actor was referring to Vin Diesel, who has a history of keeping the cast and crew waiting for hours before he's ready to shoot, which reportedly doesn't sit well with Dwayne Johnson. There have been rumors that this entire »

Kevin Feige Explains Marvel's Plan for Future Movie Villains

29 September 2016 4:59 PM, PDT

Though each and every Marvel superhero movie has been a critical and financial success, one of the biggest complaints has been the villains. They always seem to be mirror images of which ever superhero is getting his own standalone or spin-off. And most have been kind of lame. Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige claims that is all about to change soon.

The McU officially kicked off Marvel Phase 3 this summer with Captain America: Civil War, and in an interesting twist, the main villain was each other. Sure Baron Zemo stepped in towards the end to reveal his dastardly plan, and he was one of the first bad guys not to be a straight up doppleganger. Soon, Thanos will arrive to wreck havoc on the Marvel movie universe. And it sounds like the days of mirror-villains is almost nearing an end.

29 September 2016 3:03 PM, PDT

Exactly one month ago today, Justice League star Ben Affleck gave fans quite the surprise by posting a brief video that clearly showed the iconic character Deathstroke on the set. Joe Manganiello was cast a few weeks later, but that report revealed he will be the main villain in Ben Affleck's stand alone Batman reboot, with no official word that he was appearing in Justice League.

Another Twitter user dubbed "DC Extended Universe" enhanced the photo which reveals that the director may in fact have been working on a scene with Deathstroke.

21 Movies That Scored 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

29 September 2016 2:53 PM, PDT

Getting 100% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer means a lot to people. It's a very coveted rating for any movie to get, and very few have been successful. Though a few classics have managed to get there, some have only gotten close. Maybe off by a percent or two. But that still makes them nearly perfect in the eyes of the audience. And that is what we are celebrating today, movies that got 100% on the Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes. Or movies that got extremely, extremely close.

The Tomatometer, ever heard of it? That little percent meter that people now use to decide if they should or shouldn't see a movie, all according to its rotten score. This so called 'rotten rating' has gotten me in a lot of trouble. How you ask? Lets just say that when I suggest a movie to see and somebody says, "It only got Fill In »
