Arrow 'Disbanded Trailer': The Series Finally Emerges From Batman's Shadow

1 hour ago

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for the most recent episode of Arrow.

I've been with Arrow since the very start; through the good, the bad, and Season 4 too. Arrow has (arbuably) returned to form in Season 5, yet it has still failed to fix its most glaring narrative flaw: Arrow has too-long lived in the Batman's shadow. However, after the revelations expressed in last week's pivotal "Kapiushon" episode, the series might finally be establishing itself as something truly different -- whether that's good or bad depends entirely upon where it goes from here. 

The strongest argument against Arrow having a distinct identity, beyond anything but a poor-man's Batman, has resided in the forced duality of Oliver Queen and Green Arrow, played by Stephen Amell. Similiar to the Wayne/Bat paradox, we've endured four and half seasons of the same tired, clichéd premise that these are somehow separate characters, each following differents paths, »

Netflix’s Death Note: Light Meets The Genius Detective L In Official Photo

1 hour ago

So 2016 may have been the year that video game movies took a big swing and a miss at mainstreaming the adaptation of their medium, but 2017 looks to be the year of the anime and manga adaptation. In a little over a week, we’ll be getting Ghost in the Shell, and if the trailers — as well as the first five minutes of the movie — are any indication, it looks to be a good time in the theaters. On a more lowkey note, however, is the release of Death Note.

For those who don’t know, Death Note is based on the popular manga by writer Tsugumi Ohba and artist Takeshi Obata. The series ran for about two and a half years in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and had a meteoric rise in the time since then. It’s since been adapted into a Japanese film series, an anime series, and a TV drama. »

Seth Rogen and James Franco Team Up For '90s Teen Drama On Hulu

1 hour ago

James Franco and Seth Rogen have been friends and colleagues for a long time now, starting with a different 90's teen series, Freak and Geeks, back in 1999. Since then, they have appeared in countless films together, including what I consider the "Rogen/Franco Trilogy" made up of Pineapple Express, This Is The End, and The Interview; all about the undying bromance between the two on-screen stoners. This doesn't count the many cameos the two have enjoyed in the other's projects and the upcoming, well reviewed, The Disaster Artist.

And that's just acting! Both have experience behind the camera, with Franco directing The Disaster Artist, the documentary Saturday Night, and an episode of the Hulu show he starred in, Stephen King's 11.22.63. Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg have also directed films and TV, from The Interview and This Is The End, to three episodes of AMC's Preacher. Rogen »

Justice League: We Finally See Cyborg In Action With New Teaser & Poster

2 hours ago

Pretty much every member we have seen of the Justice League so far sort of has their place in mainstream fandom. It pretty much goes without saying that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Flash all have their places in the mainstream pop culture zeitgeist, and even Aquaman is pretty well known on some level. There is one member of the Justice League that stands out as a relative unknown: Cyborg. Yes, comic book fans are well aware of the superhero, but as the character has yet to make into an actual film (barring his single scene in Batman v Superman), there are a lot who know little to nothing of the tragic backstory of one Victor Stone.

Power Rangers Review - Go, Go Mixed Bag! Aye, Yai, Yai, Yai, Yai!

3 hours ago

Let me preface this review by admitting I wasn't allowed to watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a child -- neither the original 1993 television show nor the first 1995 film -- so you have the unique opportunity to experience the new Power Rangers movie through the eyes of an outsider, or the common man, as it were. Are we good? Then let's go, go... review Power Rangers!

Power Rangers focuses on five misfits who do very much fit the Breakfast Club mold. Through different circumstances, including Saturday detention, all end up at the rock quarry when one of them makes a startling discovery. Upon a little excavation, Billy (Rj Cyler) unearths five stones -- that look quite a bit like Infinity Stones... but wrong Universe -- and a buried spaceship. The stones are taken by the five teenagers, blue for Billy, pink for Kimberly (Naomi Scott), black for Zack (Ludi Lin »

Power Rangers Makes $3.6 Million In Thursday Sales, Takes On The Beast

4 hours ago

It may only be March, but the weekends are already starting to get pretty darn stacked. This weekend alone we have Power Rangers set to go head to head against Beauty and the Beast, and the weekend following will see the manga adaptation Ghost in the Shell joining the fray. As such, it’s a bit difficult to predict just how these movies will be doing, and how much they will be cannibalizing each other’s box office revenue in weeks to come. So how is newcomer Power Rangers faring against the big, bad Beast?

Early numbers are in for Thursday receipts, and it looks like Power Rangers is off to a strong start, with Thursday numbers coming in at around $3.6 million. This is just a hair lower than Kong: Skull Island, which brought in $3.7 million in its Thursday previews.

So what does this mean in terms of the entirety of the weekend? »

A Crazy New Red Band Trailer You Just Have To See For In Bruges Director's Next Flick

5 hours ago

We see a lot of blockbuster, big-budget movie trailers here at Lrm, and sometimes it's easy to overlook smaller films telling simple, personal stories. But every once in a while a new independant feature appears that demands our attention, and isn't afraid to crack us upside the head with its message.

Martin McDonagh, best known for the tragically dark 2008 comedy In Bruges, about a pair of Irish hitmen trying (and failing) to lay low after a botched assassination. In Bruges was wickedly funny and surreal, a great work by a dynamic, new director. However, aside from 2012's little-seen crime-comedy, Seven Psychopaths, McDonagh has been off the grid.

Well, he's resurfaced and judging by the trailer for Fox Searchlight's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the English-born auteur has made a new film that appears to be his funniest, darkest, and edgiest project to-date.

Justice League: Wonder Woman Gets A Trailer Teaser & Poster

6 hours ago

The countdown continues today! Yesterday, Warner Bros began releasing a series of teasers that show off all the members of the Justice League in anticipation of the forthcoming trailer. So far, we’ve seen the likes of Aquaman, Batman, and The Flash, and now Wonder Woman.

Check it out below!

Wonder Woman is in a particularly special position when compared to the other members of the Justice League in that she has a new film coming up very soon. Over the course of the past several months, we’ve grown very used to seeing trailers for her upcoming movie. As such, you have to wonder if the mainstream audience is going to have a bit of a hard time understanding how Justice League fits into this whole deal. For all we know, they may actually start thinking that they’re the same movie. »

Skydance Media CEO And Life Producer David Ellison -- Interview

6 hours ago

David Ellison first created Skydance Productions for his own 2005 directorial debut When All Else Fails, but Skydance Media really started making waves in 2010 when it teamed up with Paramount Pictures for the Coen Brothers Western True Grit.

It went on to become the highest grossing Western ever and cemented the relationship between Skydance Media with Paramount who teamed-up for World War Z, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and other franchises like Star Trek and 2014’s Terminator: Genisys. (Obviously, some of those movies did better than others.)

For his new science fiction movie Life, based on an idea that Ellison came up with, he’s teamed with Sony Pictures, bringing together a cast that includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson as part of the crew of the International Space Station who must examine a sample of life that’s been brought back from Mars.

Director For Mulan Niki Caro Clears Up Rumors About The Songs In The Film

6 hours ago

There is no doubt that Disney has found the formula for creating successful live action remakes of our favorite classic animated films. They have done a fantastic job with stories like Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. Part of what is making these films great is how the film makers have made sure to include a lot of favorite moments and songs from the animated films, which for a lot of us bring back great childhood memories that we can now share with our kids. Of course, some of the new material added to the films has also been really helpful at filling in plot holes that were probably over looked the first time around.

Recently in an interview for Moviefone.com Niki Caro, director for the upcoming live action Disney Mulan film, was quoted saying "from what I understand, no songs right now, much to the »

Chris Evans On His Future In McU: ‘I’m Not Going To Sit Here And Say, ‘No More’’

7 hours ago

Every so often we get to this point in an actor’s contract where the future seemed uncertain. Following Iron Man 3, it became clear that Marvel Cinematic Universe poster boy Robert Downey Jr was approaching the end of his contract, and there was a lot of speculation that this could be the end. Given that Downey ended up in Captain America: Civil War, and that he’ll be around at least through Avengers 4, it’s clear that renegotiations are always up for discussion.

The same can be said of Chris Evans. This was an actor who initially seemed unsure and uncomfortable in the role of Captain America. While the first film did well enough, it by no means catapulted his character to the forefront of everyone’s favorites list. That wouldn’t come until Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it’s around that time that Evans seemed to »

Damon Lindelof Discusses Binge Watching

12 hours ago

The Wrap recently sat down with Damon Lindelof, showrunner for the HBO series The Leftovers. The show recently sent six episodes out for critics to view and comment upon which brought about some comments from Damon about binge watching television. 

“I am old school. And not just because I agree with Joss Whedon about everything. Never before in the history of the English language has ‘binge’ been associated with something healthy or productive. Just because there is an entire can of Pringles in front of you does not mean you should eat them all in one sitting. Every time I have done this, I feel sad and guilty, and then mad at The Pringles Corporation. Which is probably not even a thing.” 

When someone mentions the fact that they're old school, you know there's some ignorant comment to follow. What he fails to realize apparently is that thanks to advances in technology, »

Brett Ratner Speaks Out Against Rotten Tomatoes, Rotten Tomatoes Responds

13 hours ago

I hate Rotten Tomatoes today. The fact that they made me agree with Brett Ratner on anything makes my blood boil. 

Entertainment Weekly recently spoke with Mr. Ratner, director of movies such as Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand, and Red Dragon, and asked him his thoughts on why films like Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice failed. That film, which Brett Ratner was a producer on, received a Rotten Tomatoes score of 27%, leading some to speculate that the site discouraged people from seeing the movie.  Mr. Rattner had this to say about the site.

“I think it’s the destruction of our business. I have such respect and admiration for film criticism. When I was growing up film criticism was a real art. And there was intellect that went into that. And you would read Pauline’s Kael’s reviews, or some others, and that doesn’t exist anymore. »

Justice League: Batman & The Flash Get Their Own Teaser & Poster

21 hours ago

Update: Includes Flash poster and teaser.

Earlier this morning, Warner Bros decided to kick things into overdrive. For a few weeks now, outlets and fans alike have been speculating as to when we could expect a new Justice League trailer. Way the hell back last year, many outlets were shown footage from the upcoming superhero teamup flick, and on the heels of that widely publicized set visit, we were treated to a San Diego Comic-Con sizzle reel that showed off the new, lighter tone. 

Admittedly, at the time, there was very little footage to go off of, and after the negative response to Suicide Squad, speculation once again ran rampant that perhaps Justice League may not be the film that fans were hoping it would be, despite the promising first look. Many months have passed since then, and while we’ve been treated to a few photos here and there, »

Star Wars: Han Solo Details, Plus Episode 9 Won’t Be The Last Film, Not By A Long Shot

22 hours ago

As much as we sometimes hate to admit it, Disney isn’t really in the business of making one-and-done stories. Yes, it’s always great to get out of one’s comfort zone and watch stories that take real creative risks, but that isn’t always the business Disney is doing. When the conglomerate bought Lucasfilm a few years back, it was clear that they wanted to utilize the Star Wars brand to the fullest extent.

In the time since then, we have seen the release of two amazing films, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Their next spinoff film will be something that hits a little closer to home in the form of a Han Solo movie. While we know that both Lando and Chewie will be in the film, specific details have been hard to come by. Speaking at USC, Disney »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Not Be Changed In Light Of Carrie Fisher’s Passing

23 hours ago

The passing of an actor is always a difficult thing to deal with when it happens prior to the finish of a production. There is no cut-and-dry way to deal with it, and in the past, studios and filmmakers have taken different measures to help hide the fact that their actor was unable to complete reshoots. With the case of Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, some made changes to the script work around the footage they had shot already. In the case of Furious Seven, they utilized CG and Paul Walker’s brothers to shoot the remaining footage they needed for the film.

However, as great as those respective films turned out, neither actor had quite the iconic nature of Carrie Fisher. This was a woman who had been seen as Princess Leia for the better part forty years. This is a role that is not »

Alien: Covenant - This Haunting New Poster Is Downright Biblical

23 March 2017 2:17 PM, PDT

The Alien franchise has always seemed to have a Biblical feel to it. It’s always tampered with the ideas of creation, life, and the horrors it brings along with it. This theme was amplified in Prometheus, with the archaeologists on board the titular ship. Their main mission revolves around discovering and finding the motivations behind the Engineers. 

Even the on-board android in that film, David, has a bit of a human complex, who seems embittered by the idea that humans created him because they could. The theme of creation, motivation, and idea of your creation getting out of hand and becoming an unstoppable monster is one that has permeated the series since the beginning. So when Ridley Scott first announced that the new Alien film would be called Alien: Paradise Lost, it seemed like it fit.

Life Screenwriters Rhett Reese And Paul Wernick Talk -- Interview

23 March 2017 2:01 PM, PDT

Hollywood writing duos are a long-standing tradition that’s continued through the years and there have been even more recently, but Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have created a particularly creative knack for tackling genre and franchise.

I personally met the duo on the set of their 2009 movie Zombieland many years ago, and watched them taking on other big genre movies including G.I. Joe: Retaliation, before working with Ryan Reynolds to develop a Deadpool movie that was hugely popular with superhero fans.

Their new movie Life is an outer space thriller also starring their Deadpool collaborator Ryan Reynolds, along with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson as half the crew of the International Space Station, who have recovered a sample of life from the surface of Mars. It’s a single cell organism that’s been frozen, but when they try to revive it, it starts growing, becoming stronger and more violent towards its would-be captors. »

Stephen King’s It: New Image Shows Iconic Scene With Pennywise In The Storm Drain

23 March 2017 1:45 PM, PDT

This past year has seen an amazing return to form for horror/thrillers, with a heavy emphasis on the “thriller” aspect. However, if you’ve been in search for a more traditional horror, where the emphasis more on the psyche and general concept, then you can do little better than Stephen King’s It. At least, that’s what we hope. The book itself is a bona fide classic, and like any adaptation, we can only hope the film manages to live up to expectations.

Of course, the key to any horror film is that its villain is threatening and terrifying when needed, and in the minds of many, there are fewer terrifying things than Pennywise from the book or from the original 1990s miniseries. With this new upcoming film, the big question has always been: will Pennywise look as he should. The problem with that, of course, is that »
