Bryan Singer Teases ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

26 December 2014 12:30 PM, PST

After the huge success of X-Men: Days of Future Past this past summer, Bryan Singer and Fox are gearing up for the next installment in the mutant franchise, Apocalypse. The film, which is going to be set in the 1980s, will feature one of the most powerful and popular villains of the X-Men, and the character was teased in a post-credits scene in Days of Future Past. In his Instagram account, Singer posted a picture teasing the film. Take a look below at the image. 

The photo doesn’t reveal much except that Apocalypse will come from Egypt something that we already knew but the tease is enough to get people excited about the upcoming film. Singer directed the first two X-Men films, which remain very popular but he left for the third one and the franchise took a hit as The Last Stand was met with negative criticism that is still felt nowadays. »

Mark Ruffalo Talks About Bruce Banner in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

24 December 2014 9:39 AM, PST

Marvel is gearing up to release their biggest film yet and, while most of the plot is still shrouded in secrecy, some details have been revealed and now, Mark Ruffalo has commented on Bruce Banner’s role in the upcoming film.

It seems that Banner will be heavily involved in the creation of Ultron. Ruffalo says:

"Banner's been living in Stark Tower. They've been working side by side and Bruce has his own lab now. He's doing work that augments Tony's own, which could lead to an experiment going wrong..."

That could mean that Banner is feeling guilty about Ultron and that can unfold into the epic battle between the Hulk and the Hulkbuster.

Aside from that, Ruffalo also talks about his relationship with Natasha Romanoff a.k.a Black Widow and how their relationship develops more in this film:

“His relationship with Natasha deepens. There's something similar about the two of them. »

Exclusive: Rupert Wyatt on Mark Wahlberg & John Goodman’s Against Type Roles in 'The Gambler'

24 December 2014 7:16 AM, PST

After breathing new life into the Planet of the Apes franchise, many anxiously awaited Rupert Wyatt’s next cinematic outing.

The Gambler marks somewhat of a departure for the British-born writer/director in that it’s subdued and somewhat ambiguous. The film follows an English professor and high-stakes gambler (Mark Wahlberg) who finds himself at the mercy of the gangster (Michael K. Williams) he borrowed money from. A remake of the 1974 suspense drama, The Gambler features impressive supporting turns from the likes of John Goodman, Jessica Lange and Brie Larson.

We had the chance to sit down with Wyatt to discuss his inspired casting choices, inventive scene blocking and his unique take on Los Angeles.

After The Rise of the Planet of the Apes you really had a pick, you had options, which is a rare thing early on in one’s career. Why instead of choosing more of a »

Thank you, James Flacco!

In a change of heart, Sony Pictures will allow any movie theater to show “The Interview” on Christmas Day. So far, nearly 100 indie theaters will immediately jump on board for the showings. Sony will also play on VOD, but major distributors are balking at this time.

James Gunn Talks 'Guardians,' And 'Avengers' Crossover

23 December 2014 3:43 PM, PST

Guardians of the Galaxy was probably the biggest surprise hit of the past year. Immediately after the film came out people started asking about the future of the Guardians. James Gunn, the writer and director of Guardians, has done a ton of press since the film came out and he’s constantly asked, what's next for the Guardians.

Depending on what you read, there were quotes from Gunn saying that the Guardians will have some involvement with the Avengers. But there are other quotes that stated the two teams would never interact within the Marvel Universe.

Finally in a long Facebook post, Gunn decided to set the record straight:

Woke up the other day to two articles - one that announced I said the Avengers and the Guardians were never teaming up, another that said I said they were. These two articles were based On The Same Interview.

Victory!!!

It's finally here!

The boys from Queens continue their shenanigans in Hollywood in the feature version of their hit TV show Entourage. I been waiting for this trailer for a minute. One of my most anticipated films of 2015. Check it out below.

Get Ready To Stream Pee-Wee's Next Adventure On Netflix

23 December 2014 7:50 AM, PST

Netflix, the streaming service that has made something of a habit of giving fan-favorite properties a second (or third) life, is at it again. The company that gave Arrested Development a fourth season, and brought The Killing back from the dead, is now set to bring an all-new Pee-Wee movie to a TV near you. 

According to The Wrap, Judd Apatow has brought his Pee-Wee production to Netflix. Paul Reubens. the creator of the character, who has also co-written the script for the new film, is set to return to the iconic role. This will be the latest leg of Pee-Wee's comeback tour, so to speak. Starting with a surprise re-appearance on SNL in 2011, Reubens has been hard at work resuscitating the character. These efforts include a run on Broadway with a live show that then culminated in an HBO Special.

As of now, we do not know much else about the project. »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Is Not a Prequel!

23 December 2014 7:24 AM, PST

I think James Gunn is getting a little tired of telling everyone how much the Guardians of the Galaxy films will not be leading up to The Avengers: Infinity War.

Here he is taking about it again:

"The last thing I said was something about how the Guardians, we really are mostly focused on creating the Guardians as their own separate universe, creating the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe. It isn’t all about leading towards Avengers. We’re not subservient to The Avengers. Whether or not at some point, some Guardians and some Avengers meet up and meet somewhere in the world, whether it’s two years from now, three years from now, four years from now, fifteen years from now…I’m not going to say. But Guardians of the Galaxy does not exist as a prequel to Avengers 3 and 4. They have their own thing that they’re involved in. »

Bruce Campbell Talks 'Ash vs Evil Dead'

23 December 2014 7:23 AM, PST

f you haven't heard, Starz is working on a new television show titled Ash vs Evil Dead. It'll be ten half hour episodes, and will premier in late 2015. 

Brice Campbell is returning to play Ash, and spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the new show.

The show will find Ash living in a trailer park working for another big box store similar to S-Mart; then the Deadites return and Ash is forced to go on a road trip with two young coworkers and, of course, his "trusty boomstick."

So, what made Campbell and Sam Raimi decide to bring Ash to the small screen?

"We realized if we made another movie, frankly, it would probably be too expensive," said Campbell. "But in the format of a TV show, we could give people exactly what they wanted and expand the character and the story even more. Ash would probably have more dialogue in »

'Star Trek 3' Gets 'Fast And Furious' Director Justin Lin

22 December 2014 5:32 PM, PST

Star Trek 3 has a new director -- it’s Justin Lin (Fast and the Furious franchise). Paramount just announced the decision today after Roberto Orci stepped down from the director’s chair a few weeks ago. 

Things seemed shaky after Orci left the project. There were talks of script issues delaying the production. The film is set to be released in 2016 (the fifty year anniversary of Star Trek). Orci has co-written the two most recent Star Trek films and also co-wrote Star Trek 3 with his writing partner Alex Kurtzman. Originally Jj Abrams was set to direct but he left to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

Lin has shown that he can handle big budget action movies with the Fast and the Furious films, but street racing is very different from intergalactic space conflicts (isn't it?). I think Lin can handle the transition though. He first gained attention directing episodes of Community, »

Mike Colter Is Luke Cage

22 December 2014 4:50 PM, PST

The search for Marvel’s Luke Cage has come to an end: Mike Colter (The Following, The Good Wife) has been cast as the hero for hire.

The casual Marvel film fan probably hasn’t heard of Luke Cage. He is set to make his first onscreen appearance in the Netflix series Jessica Jones. Cage, also known as Power Man when he first debuted in the 70s, is a character that has recently gained prominence in the Marvel Comics world. His powers include super strength and invulnerability. Originally the character started out as a street level hero that would offer his services to whoever was willing to pay him. Through the years the character joined the Avengers, married and had a child with Jessica Jones, and managed to save the world a few times.

One very important fact to note about Cage is that he's a black superhero. Why am I pointing this out, »

Star Wars Leaks Reveal More Kylo Ren

22 December 2014 2:01 PM, PST

It's been the month of the leak, that's for sure. However, this isn't some international incident of hacking (we don't think), but something Star Wars fans are much more used to: a toy leak.

A Chinese Website (via Rebel Scum) posted a photo of four action figures from The Force Awakens, most likely from Hasbro's Black line. Since, Hasbro has been scrubbing the internet of the photos, so we won't repost here...

The figures in the picture are of Flynn (John Boyega) in a Solo-like vest (and interestingly enough one hand that looks lightsaber ready), Rae (Daisy Ridley) in an outfit that looks vaguely Jedi, BeeBee the droid on her ball-body, Chewbacca and a masked character that logic suggests is Kylo Ren, the mysterious villain with the cross-guard saber.

That lead Indie Revolver to posting a piece of concept art of what looks like the helmet the action figure is »

22 December 2014 2:00 PM, PST

As part of their ongoing partnership, Laika and Focus Features have announced a new animated film, Kubo and the Two Strings. The animation studio has grown in popularity with films like Coraline, ParaNorman and most recently, The Boxtrolls, films that blend stop-motion animation with interesting and sometimes, bold ideas. Kubo, which will be set in ancient Japan, seems to be in the same path and Laika has released concept art for the film. Take a look below: 

Read the official synopsis:

“In the epic fantasy, scruffy, kindhearted Kubo ekes out a humble living while devotedly caring for his mother in their sleepy shoreside village. It is a quiet existence – until a spirit from the past catches up with him to enforce an age-old vendetta.

22 December 2014 9:38 AM, PST

Sony continues to be the front headline of every news web since the brutal hack that revealed thousands of private e-mails and information. Many of these have been about Spider-man and the future of the franchise, one that seems bleak after the disaster that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was. Shortly after that film was released, Sony announced plans for a Sinister Six movie directed by Drew Goddard and in a new set of leaked e-mails, Comic Book Movie has revealed a “wishlist” of possible actors to take on the roles.

The article reveals that Pascal and other Sony executives have discussed possible candidates for the film including Channing Tatum as Venom (something that might not happen since he is now set to play Gambit in the upcoming X-Men film, Apocalypse), Emily Blunt as Scorpia, Sean Penn as Doctor Octopus and Colin Firth as The Vulture.
