Rian Johnson Teases Luke’s Return To The Millenium Falcon In The Last Jedi

1 hour ago

If Rian Johnson is working to maintain some semblance of mystery around Supreme Leader Snoke – word is The Last Jedi will answer most (but not all!) of our questions come December – then the sequel’s writer-director has adopted a similar approach to the great Luke Skywalker.

Mark Hamill’s all-powerful Force-user went into exile soon after the events of Jedi, and it was only when Daisy Ridley’s Rey touched down on Ahch-To that Star Wars fans caught a glimpse of Hamill’s jaded hero. And though he was initially taken aback by Johnson’s vision for the character, The Last Jedi is poised to introduce a “haunted” Luke who is essentially a shell of his former self. This is something that’ll apparently carry over into his return to the Millenium Falcon, too.

When asked by Entertainment Weekly how Luke will react once he’s back in the ship, »

The Original Justice League Post-Credits Scene Featured Green Lantern

3 hours ago

DC hasn’t exactly embraced the Marvel model of sticking two post-credits scenes at the end of their movies before now, but Justice League bucked the trend and did just that. The first was a brief but very fun sequence which saw the Flash and Superman challenge each other to a race. The second was much meatier, though, featuring a set-up for an Injustice League headed by Lex Luthor and Deathstroke.

At an earlier stage of production, however, Justice League’s post-credits scene paved the way for another upcoming movie: Green Lantern Corps, set to arrive in 2020. This juicy piece of info comes from Reddit user LND_Film, a visual effects artist who worked on Wonder Woman and has several friends who were involved with Jl. According to them, here’s what the scene originally showed.

“The original after credit scene that was shot in principal photography was Bruce being »

3 hours ago

The team has now been united onscreen, but offscreen, the Cinemaholics (plus special guest Craig Hanks of The Legendarium Podcast) are here to review Justice League, the latest Dceu film, which was directed by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon.

The bulk of the show though is devoted to the heroic antics of Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller), plus an expanded cast of incredible actors in this long-awaited DC event movie. Is Justice League good, great, terrible, or somewhere in between, though? Tune in to find out!

Latest Crisis On Earth-x Promo Teases Arrowverse Crossover; New Flash Poster Invites Fans To The Wedding

4 hours ago

The latest promo for “Crisis On Earth-x” gives us our best look yet at the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, which is arriving later this month. Featuring the casts of ArrowThe Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, the four-part event will see the assembled heroes face their own Nazi doppelgangers from the dystopian Earth-x.

This new trailer reveals that Barry and Iris’ wedding is crashed by Overgirl, the Supergirl of Earth-x. Luckily for our planet, though, the world’s finest heroes are on the case. In one awesome team shot, we see a line-up including Alex Danvers, Mister Terrific, Vixen, Wild Dog, White Canary, Flash, Steel, Green Arrow, Atom, Heatwave, Captain Cold, Zari and Black Canary.

Speaking of Captain Cold, we also get a glimpse at the Earth-x Leonard Snart, who looks to be a leading Nazi commander. Seeing as this is apparently Wentworth Miller’s final time in the Arrowverse, »

Is There A Catwoman Easter Egg Hidden In Justice League?

4 hours ago

Justice League features enough easter eggs to DC lore to fill the Batcave, and we’ve already pointed out a few of the best. But there’s one that’s seemingly slipped by most fans: a potential nod to Batman’s femme fatale (and fiancee, in current comic books), Catwoman.

At the end of the movie, part of a montage shows that Diana has finally stepped into the light as Wonder Woman, as she’s seen foiling a robbery at a museum. In the background of the scene, we can see a sophisticated-looking lady being arrested for the crime. One eagle-eyed fan on Reddit, username Tsarita, has theorized that this could be Selina Kyle, saying the following about it:

“Right in the final montage of the movie, right before the final shot where Superman flies off, there’s that part right by the museum with Diana,” Tsarita wrote. “There’s »

Brand New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Photos Blast Online

5 hours ago

A bunch of new images from Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been revealed today, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, and they follow on from the magazine’s four collectible covers that we saw earlier.

The ten photos, seen in the gallery below, showcase moments from throughout the movie, from the iconic image of the Millennium Falcon entering warp speed to At-ATs in battle on Scarif. The stills also include a look at Finn (John Boyega), new addition Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) and Bb-8 on a mission for the Resistance; Luke overseeing Rey’s training on Ahch-To; a heated moment between Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac); another glimpse at Laura Dern’s Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo; and a behind-the-scenes shot of director Rian Johnson in discussion with Fisher.

One of the most interesting pics is the one of Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren inspecting his helmet (what? Why are you laughing? »

Leaked Deleted Scene From Justice League Shows The Flash Saving Iris West

6 hours ago

Justice League is now out and, unsurprisingly, it’s splitting people right down the middle. Many fans love it, but critics are giving the film a pounding. Everyone, however, is intrigued to know how it was changed from its original cut.

In case you’ve missed all the behind the scenes upheaval, Zack Snyder had to hand the keys of the movie over to Joss Whedon due to a family tragedy, meaning the reshoots changed Justice League in some major ways. We’re told that only 15-20% of the final cut is Whedon’s, but we suspect this might be underselling it a bit. What exactly belongs to the Avengers director and what came from Snyder isn’t too hard to spot in the film itself, and while a report surfaced yesterday outlining many of the latter’s scenes that were removed, we now have something even better.

EW Debuts Four New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Covers

6 hours ago

It’s hard to believe it, but we’re now less than one month away from Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and anticipation is starting to reach a fever pitch. The next chapter of the Skywalker saga is due to blast into theaters on December 15th and in the past few weeks, Lucasfilm has really begun to crank up the promotional campaign. From TV spots to trailers and everything in between, it seems you can’t go more than a few days without getting something new from the pic and this weekend, that continues.

Seen in the gallery below are four, brand new covers that Entertainment Weekly debuted, featuring several characters from The Last Jedi. We’ve got Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) on one, while another features Luke (Mark Hamill) and Leia (Carrie Fisher). As for the other two, there’s Finn (John Boyega »

Justice League Storms To A Solid But Underwhelming Debut At The Box Office

7 hours ago

Well, the numbers are now in and we imagine the folks at Warner Bros. are probably sweating pretty hard. Though it didn’t bomb – far from it, in fact – Justice League stormed into theaters this weekend and failed to make much of an impact at the box office. Or at least, nowhere near as much of an impact as the studio had no doubt hoped it would make.

The final numbers won’t be here until Monday morning, but analysts are estimating that the team-up pic pulled in a decent but not terribly impressive $96 million on home turf (with $185 million internationally), putting it far below the expected $110 million mark that it had been pegged at prior to release. Undoubtedly, the so-so reviews and storm that hovered over it during production led to this underwhelming opening, and it’s uncertain now which direction the Dceu will head in.

Justice League Composer Reveals The Film’s Chaotic Production

21 hours ago

The extensive reshoots that Joss Whedon helmed for Justice League are well-documented, but we still don’t know the whole story of what went on behind the scenes. We’ve been told that only 15-20% of the finished product is the work of Whedon, for instance, but that doesn’t seem to tally with how much of the movie feels Whedonesque rather than Zack Snyder-flavoured.

In a new interview with THR, however, composer Danny Elfman goes someway to shining a light on how rushed Justice League‘s production was. For one, he revealed that Whedon only contacted him to write the film’s score at the “very last second.”

“I got the call from Joss very last second. I got the call and it was, ‘You have to decide now and then go to work tomorrow.’”

Elfman then went on to explain that most of his score was conducted »

Here’s What Jake Gyllenhaal Could Look Like As Batman

18 November 2017 4:22 PM, PST

Jake Gyllenhaal as the ninth incarnation of Gotham’s Dark Knight?

That’s the rumor currently doing the rounds online, after one report claimed Matt Reeves, writer-director on The Batman, has hand-picked Gyllenhaal to be his Caped Crusader, and the one who would eventually succeed Ben Affleck in the title role.

Keep in mind that many of DC’s bigwigs have since voiced their support of Affleck’s costumed crusader on the belief that he will indeed reprise the part in time for The Batman in 2018, despite all of those conflicting reports swirling online. So, until we have something official from the studio, it’d be best to treat this all just as a rumor for now. Still, that hasn’t stopped fan artist extraordinaire Boss Logic from putting together a quick design of how the Stronger star may appear should he indeed take over the role, and you can »

Ryan Seacrest Under Investigation For Sexual Harassment

18 November 2017 4:21 PM, PST

As a wave of sexual harassment allegations continues to engulf Hollywood, numerous actors have come under fire for inappropriate and in some cases, disturbing behavior. From Kevin Spacey to Harvey Weinstein, it’s been one after another and this weekend, it’s TV host and producer Ryan Seacrest who finds himself in the spotlight – for all the wrong reasons.

According to a new report from Yahoo!, the former American Idol host has been accused of “inappropriate behavior” by a wardrobe stylist on E! News, which Seacrest hosted from 2006 to 2012. From what we understand, he’s currently under investigation for sexual harassment, but the details of the incident have not been made public yet. Still, the producer denies any and all allegations, releasing the following statement this weekend:

“Recently, someone that worked as a wardrobe stylist for me nearly a decade ago at E! News, came forward with a complaint suggesting I behaved inappropriately toward her. »

Batgirl May Be Cancelled As Dceu Focus Could Shift Towards Wonder Woman

18 November 2017 2:33 PM, PST

Warner Bros. has a lot riding on Justice League. After the first three movies in the Dceu were met with mixed critical responses, the team-up pic was meant to hit the same heights as this year’s Wonder Woman. Unfortunately for the studio, however, Justice League has not only received a lot of harsh reviews, but might also underperform at the box office and fail to match up to Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok.

In the wake of this, WB will have to do some serious thinking about what direction to take the Dceu down in future. They still haven’t announced anything in regards to that just yet, but according to The Ankler, the studio are considering ditching the emphasis on the Justice League characters altogether and focusing on what they know works: Wonder Woman and her mythos.

Here’s Exactly What Joss Whedon Changed During The Justice League Reshoots

18 November 2017 2:20 PM, PST

Justice League is now out and, unsurprisingly, it’s splitting people right down the middle. Many fans love it, but critics are giving the film a pounding. Everyone, however, is intrigued to know how it was changed from its original cut.

Partial Description Of Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Surfaces

18 November 2017 2:07 PM, PST

Unless you were one of the fortunate few in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con – or you happened to catch a bootleg recording of said clip before it was yanked offline four months ago – the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has been as elusive as they come.

In fact, such is the pent-up demand for Marvel’s 2018 preview that Joe and Anthony Russo recently teased fans via social media on the belief that “some things can’t be rushed: good music and good wine.” And the first-look teaser for Infinity War, it seems.

But as we approach the year’s end, and Thor: Ragnarok maintains its grip on the global box office, it’s surely only a matter of weeks before Marvel officially lifts the lid on Avengers: Infinity War. Indeed, last we reported the studio’s head honcho Kevin Feige hinted that it would drop in and around the same timeframe as Ragnarok, »

New Venom Shot Takes Us Into Eddie Brock’s Home

18 November 2017 12:34 PM, PST

With Spider-Man now rubbing shoulders with the Avengers over in the McU, Sony is moving forward with its own shared universe headed up by other anti-heroes and villains from the Spider-verse. With projects such as Silver & Black and Morbius the Living Vampire on the way, first out the door is Venom, starring Tom Hardy as the symbiote’s host Eddie Brock.

So far, we haven’t seen much of the movie, save a few set photos and videos which gave us a glimpse at Hardy in character as Brock. As it’s still early days on the production – filming only began on October 23rd – the movie’s official Twitter account is just teasing us with oblique behind the scenes shots every now and then. They’re not much, but the latest is a selfie from Hardy himself, captioned “Home.” From that, we can gather that this was taken on the »

Oliver Queen Is Back In The Hood In Arrow 6×07 Promo Images

18 November 2017 11:59 AM, PST

Arrow season 6 has seen a major shake-up of the series’ status quo. With his duties already split between being mayor of Star City and a father to his son William, Oliver Queen passed the mantle of Green Arrow onto his old buddy John Diggle back in episode 2. It’s been a bumpy ride for him, though, as the former soldier has been struggling to deal with both adjusting to being Team Arrow’s new leader and coping with his Ptsd after the events of the season 5 finale.

In next week’s episode, titled “Thanksgiving,” the real Green Arrow will return when Oliver Queen is forced to don the hood once again. It’s not clear exactly what prompts him to step back into active vigilante duty, but it’s likely that it has something to do with the return of Black Siren, Laurel Lance’s evil doppelganger from Earth-2, who »

Terminator 6 Recruits New Writer, First Plot Details Revealed

18 November 2017 11:18 AM, PST

After Terminator: Genisys stunk to high heaven, it looked like the iconic sci-fi franchise might finally be over. However, we should have remembered the T-800’s immortal words, as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s robot assassin will be back once again in the upcoming Terminator 6. Previously, original director James Cameron made clear that the new film would distance itself from the past three installments in the series by only acting as a sequel to T2: Judgement Day. Linda Hamilton will even reprise her role as Sarah Connor for the first time since the 1991 sequel.

On top of that, Variety is reporting that the project has just hired a new screenwriter in Captain Phillips scribe Billy Ray. Apparently handpicked by Cameron and Tim Miller, who’s set to direct, Ray will base his script off a story treatment by Cameron, Miller and David Ellison, the founder of Skydance Productions (the »

10 Great Horror Movies That Are Actually Ripoffs Of Other Films

18 November 2017 8:35 AM, PST

The horror genre has existed in cinema for decades now, with a multitude of monsters, killers and spooks to show for it. But with each successful film or antagonist comes a ripoff or two. It’s to be expected, after all, and sometimes, these ripoffs work out like catching lightning in a bottle. In no time at all, studios have got another success on the way and the cycle continues.

As such, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of the best horror ripoffs to ever grace the silver screen. Some of these titles were even so influential and successful in their own right, that you may not realize they were ripping anything off to begin with.

You can, as always, chime in via the comments section below if you’ve got any picks of your own, but without further ado, here are our 10 favorite horror movies »

The Arrowverse Comes Together In Even More New Crossover Photos

18 November 2017 8:33 AM, PST

If anything, November 2017 is set to be a month for DC fans to remember. Not only do we have Justice League now in theaters, but, in just over a week, The CW will be rolling out their next massive Arrowverse crossover, “Crisis on Earth-x.”

For those of you who have been keeping up, you know that the first promo for the big mashup began running the other week during broadcasts of Arrow and its other sister shows. Sure, it may have been all of ten seconds, but it was enough to get us more than hyped.

This time, though, we’re treated to an absolutely massive gallery of stills pulled from all four episodes of the crossover. Granted, some of these we saw earlier when pics from the Legends of Tomorrow installment debuted, but now we have a look at what’ll be going down on ArrowThe Flash and Supergirl, »
