Hot Wheels R2-D2 Roadster

13 hours ago

Hot Wheels just released a photo of their awesome looking Star Wars inspired R2-D2 roadster! They tagged the photo with #SDCC14 so I imagine you will be able to get one of these bad boys at Comic-Con later this month. Now I'm just going to sit back and wait for some crazy fan to build a life size version of this car with Lego bricks that actually runs. I know you're out there!  »

Bryan Singer Looking to Direct Image Comics' The Age Of Heroes

13 hours ago

X-Men director Bryan Singer is currently developing X-Men: Apocalypse for 20th Century Fox. He's expected to direct the film regardless of the sexual abuse scandal and lawsuit. But who knows what will happen if things go badly for him. 

Fox President of Production Emma Watts told THR, "Right now we are totally at the outlining phase [on X-Men: Apocalypse]. But nothing would make me happier than if it all worked out. It's always been the intention for [Bryan] to do it." 

So if it doesn't "all work out" does that mean Singer won't be directing X-Men: Apocalypse? I guess we'll have to wait and see how this all plays out. Singer is already prepping a new project for him to take on if Apocalypse doesn't work out, or as something he can do after. The Tracking Board is reporting that Singer and his production company, Bad Hat Harry Productions, have picked up the rights »

It's A Superhero Beach Party! Art by Julian Totino Tedesco

14 hours ago

This amusing illustration comes from artist Julian Totino Tedesco. It was created for Tampa Bay Comic-Con, and it features several superheroes throwing a massive beach party, and several other iconic pop culture characters were invited. There's a lot of funny stuff going on in the image, my favorite is Batman fully dressed in black standing in the shade with Alfred handing him a drink. He must be miserable.  »

Darren Lynn Bousman to Direct Sci-Fi Action Film Apex

14 hours ago

Saw franchise director Darren Lynn Bousman is set to direct an indie sci-fi action movie called Apex. Bousman has made some interesting films in his career outside of the Saw movies, and they consist of Repo: The Genetic Opera, 11-11-11, and The Devil's Carnival. He has a unique style, and this should be an interesting project for him.

The news comes from THR who describe the project as "Predator meets Call of Duty." And the plot tells the story of "a Special Ops team, sent to obtain a Wmd from North Korea, that is transported to another world. The team then finds themselves pitted against a dangerous alien race."

James E. Cavanaugh came up with the idea and wrote the screenplay "with an eye on current scientific trends in physics and biology." 

Bousman said that it's “a love letter to the sci-fi films I grew up watching with my dad such as Alien, »

Great Animated Short - The Terrible Thing Of Alpha-9!

15 hours ago

I came across this very entertaining animated short for you to watch called The Terrible Thing of Alpha-9! It was created by Jake Armstrong for his graduation film project. The story follows a space bounty-hunter who travels to a distant planet to kill a terrible monster. Things don't go as smoothly as the bounty hunter would have hoped. The short was made back in 2009, but has just recently found its way online. It is done in a fun and loose style of animation, and I enjoyed the cartoony yet dark character designs. I absolutely loved the ending of this!

Collin Farrell in Talks to Join True Detective Season 2

16 hours ago

Colin Farrell is in talks to take on the lead role in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto‘s HBO series True Detective. There's also word that Taylor Kitsch is also among the leading candidates for the second male lead. 

The first season of True Detective was incredible, and if you haven't seen it, you need too. It recently earned several Emmy nominations on Thursday, including lead actor nominations for both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as a Best Drama nomination. Those two actors both need to win for their roles!

HBO CEO Richard Plepler and president Michael Lombardo recently said that the first two scripts for season two are “more exciting” than those of the first season. I have no idea what that means but I assume they are just trying to build buzz.

All we really know about the second season at this point came from »

TV Spot for Richard Linklater's Boyhood

16 hours ago

This wonderful film was quite an achievement for director Richard Linklater, and everyone who was involved with making it. Boyhood is a cinematic adventure that you have to experience. It may not be a perfect movie, but the tone, story and characters were fantastic. 

The TV spot that was released highlights the growth of the central character of the film, Mason Jr., played by Ellar Coltrane from age 6 to age 18. It's done as a set of photos that flashes by in quick succession. 

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood »

Unbelievable Thorin Oakenshield Cosplayer from The Hobbit

17 hours ago

This is not Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit films. This is a cosplayer from the recent FantasyCon cosplay competition that took play in Salt Lake City, Utah. I can't believe how much this guy looks like him though! It's insanely good! The photos were posted on Reddit by the cosplayer's wife, melodywise. He won the Best Fantasy, Solo award at the event.

New Info on Pacific Rim Animated Series

17 hours ago

Last month Guillermo del Toro not only announced a sequel to Pacific Rim, but an animated series as well. In a recent interview with Collider, the filmmaker talks about the series and what it will entail. The series is still very early in development, but he offered up some details on the premise and the timeline saying:

"It’s a great set-up and a link between the first movie and the second movie.  It really enhances the mythology of the characters; we have cameos of characters from the first movie, but mostly it’s a new set of characters.  New jaegers, except for one or two, [and] new kaijus.  It’s really fun."

He goes on to reveal that the show will be one long story, and not just a series of self contained episodes, which I love! I wish more American animated series would be like that. That's why I watch anime. »

Raphael Does His Batman Voice in New Ninja Turtles TV Spot

18 hours ago

"I'm a snappin' turtle fool!"

Paramount Pictures has aired two new TV spots for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that have some fun new footage, including Raphael doing his Batman voice. I'm sure the movie will be very entertaining, regardless of the look of the turtles and Megan Fox's terrible acting. The movie is set to hit theaters on August 8th! I also included a video of the recent motion posters released.

Wonder Woman — 2014 Best of Cosplay Collection

18 hours ago

Updated for 2014

A lot of really amazing Wonder Woman cosplay came out over the last year and 2/3 of this collection is completely new.

The costume is iconic and very hard to pull off well. First of all, parts of the costume are metal. Along with that, it's extremely form fitting, and just like Superman you either meet the physical requirements or you don't. Whether she's a symbol of female empowerment or the exact opposite is debatable. One thing for sure is you don't mess with Diana of Themyscira.

If you've got good cosplay or think I missed something, send it our way.

Featurette for Scarlett Johansson's Action-Film Lucy

19 hours ago

As you have already seen, Scarlett Johansson kicks all kinds of ass in Luc Besson's new action film Lucy. Today we bring you a featurette for the movie that gives us a little more insight into the locations where they shot the movie. Both Johansson and Besson discuss the film in the video, which also features some new footage.

The film tells the story of a woman who accidentally is caught in the middle of a dark deal, but manages to turn the tables on her captors and transforms into "a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic."

The movie comes out later this month on July 25th! »

Review: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Is So Damn Spectacular!

20 hours ago

It's a rare thing to see a sequel that is better than the original, but Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was simply amazing. Director Matt Reeves delivered a hell of good story with a solid script and spectacular special effects. This movie proves a point I make time and time again, which is that a big budget special effects heavy movie can also have an incredible story with brilliant performances from the actors, unlike Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction

As I look back on the movies I've seen this summer, this is easily one of the best that has been released. Hell! It's one of the best movies of the year. One of the main things that I loved about was the emotional weight it carried. Family was a main focal point of the story. It's something that everyone can relate to, and you feel sympathy »

This is one of the greatest things I've seen this week! Youtuber The Unusual Suspect recut a trailer for Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan in the style of the trailer for The Expendables 3, and it's freakin' amazing!

Supercut of Mark Wahlberg Throwing Tantrums

21 hours ago

Here's a very amusing video edit that features several tantrums Mark Wahlberg has had through the course of his film career. The video is called "Mark Wahlberg Has No Patience," and this video proves that that is a true statement. I guess you don't want to get on Wahlberg's bad side, because he'll tear into you! Thanks to Yahoo! for the video.

Guillermo de Toro Gives an Update on At The Mountains Of Madness

22 hours ago

Art by Keith Thompson

I'm so disappointed that Guillermo del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness didn't happen. This is a movie that has to be made, and Del Toro is the guy who needs to make it. I'm happy to report that the filmmaker still hasn't given up on the project! In fact, in a recent interview with Collider he talks about his plan to bring it to life.

Basically he wants to release two different cuts of the film — a PG-13 version and his unrated version. The reason the movie never got made in the first place is because Universal Pictures didn't want to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on an R rated film, but this way you get the best of both worlds. The studio gets their PG-13 movie, and the fans get their hardcore version. This is what the director said about it:

“The way I’m thinking is, »

The Expendables 3 "New Mission" TV Spot and Motion Poster

22 hours ago

We have  another TV spot for you to watch for The Expendables 3 called "New Mission" for you to check out! There have been a lot of complaints about the film not being rated 'R'. I don't understand why this 'R' rated franchise decided to lighten up either, but I don't imagine it will be any worse or any better than the first two films that were made. I think it will be just as entertaining, so if you liked the first two, I'm sure you'll like this one. If you hated the first two, then I suggest you don't go out and see the third. The movie hits theaters on August 17th! I've also include a motion poster.
