Watch The Prologue To Alien: Covenant, The Last Supper

23 February 2017 6:21 AM, PST

Ridley Scott returns to the world of Alien with prequel Alien: Covenant this Summer, and to get us hyped for more Xenomorph tinged action a prologue short movie, The Last Supper, has come our way. Directed by his offspring Luke Scott (Morgan), it introduces us to the future alien fodder crew of the colony ship Covenant as they enjoy one last meal together before entering cryosleep, suggesting that Covenant follows suit with the majority of the movies in this franchise and kicks off with the crew coming out of stasis. On top of introducing the cast, which includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, and James Franco, it also drops some neat hints about what the story holds for us. One cool thing revealed is that all the characters are couples, adding a nice dynamic to the story when it comes time for some alien implantation. On top of that, »

Hellboy 3 Officially "Won’t Happen"

22 February 2017 3:20 AM, PST

While it always seemed like a long shot, fans of Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy series (including us here at The Movie Bit) have been waiting for a third installment, especially since 2008’s Hellboy: The Golden Army ended on something of a cliffhanger. The years passed by and it came more and more apparent that Hellboy 3 could be just a pipe dream, despite Del Toro and star Ron Perlman’s willingness to get it done. It’s hard to gage what exactly was stopping it, but with Del Toro saying this would be the most expensive one to make, it could have been a money issue with studios put off by the fact that the first two movie only made a combined box office of $259 million. While that is still pretty respectable, it doesn’t exact;y light the world on fire. Finally wanting to get the ball rolling on the project, »

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword Gets An Epic New Trailer

20 February 2017 10:58 AM, PST

Guy Ritchie’s take on the well worn Arthurian legend, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, hits our screens in three short months, and a new trailer has come our way, letting us no exactly what is store for us. Previous trailers focused on the more grounded side of the legend, but this one goes full on weird with gigantic beasts, epic clashes between massive armies, and magic up the wazoo. I gotta say, I kinda love it. Ritchie seems to be having lots of fun with his own spin on the fantasy epic, and now I find myself waiting for the finished product with bated breath. Released: May 12th Synopsis: Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing »

20 February 2017 5:59 AM, PST

If anything, Dean Isrealite’s (Project Almanac) big screen Power Rangers will be fun. Time will tell if the silliness of the concept, with it’s ordinary teenagers gaining magical colour coded armour and gigantic battle bots, will end up overpowering the whole affair, but it should at least be fun. Don’t believe me, then check out this latest trailer, and try not to at least smile. I dare you.

Trailer For Adam Sandler’s Sandy Wexler

20 February 2017 5:24 AM, PST

We’re halfway through Adam Sandler’s four movie exclusive Netflix deal, and it’s safe to say the previous two efforts, The Ridiculous Six and The Do-Over, has been business as usual for Sandler, i.e. unfunny and border line tasteless. The penultimate movie of the deal, Sandy Wexler, probably won’t change anything. The first trailer is here, bringing in an array of stars (and Sandler’s friends), from Judd Apatow to Chris Rock to Conan O’Brien, to introduce us to the titular talent agent and his uncouth approach to making his clients stars. Oh yes, and Sandler is once again adopting a strong voice. Whoopee!!! Check it out for yourself below. Sandy Wexler hits Netflix worldwide on April 14th. »

Irish Mathematicians Find A Way To Make Batman’s Cape

20 February 2017 5:12 AM, PST

As we all know, clothes make the man, so a new formula coming out of Nui Galway means that very soon we can all be dressing as Batman......o.k. that is a bit of a stretch, but the formula, the result of a collaboration between Irish and Italian mathematicians, works out how much voltage soft conductive or ‘dielectric’ membranes can take before they break. Up until now, it was impossible to know what the breaking point of these materials was, and if this sounds familiar, this exact method was used to construct Batman’s cape in Batman Begins. Let Dr. Michael Destrade at the school of Mathematics, Statistics, and Applied Mathematics in Nui Galway explain how it works: If you can remember the scene in Batman Begins where this huge bat cape emerges from a tiny folded piece of material, that’s the kind of technology which is being »
