New Synopsis For M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass Promises An Epic Showdown

39 minutes ago

UnbreakableSplit, and now Glass, the third and seemingly conclusive chapter in M. Night Shyamalan’s saga of rogue heroes and an unhinged protagonist nursing a rare case of dissociative identity disorder.

It makes for a fairly unorthodox Hollywood franchise, that’s for sure, and Shyamalan is currently hard at work drafting the third chapter in a trilogy nearly two decades in the making. Expected to launch into theaters in two years’ time, that would put the mind-bending thriller on course to enter production either later this year or, in the more likely scenario, sometime in early 2018. Chalk that up as conjecture for now, but one thing we do know is that the director’s upcoming effort will feature a sure to be epic showdown between Bruce Willis and James McAvoy.

Or at least, a new plot synopsis for the flick teases as much. It may be brief, but it »

The 9 Most Insane Dceu Rumors To Date

1 hour ago

It’s a taxing time to be a fan of the Dceu. It feels like every other hour there’s a new report about the franchise being in deep peril or a brand-new film starting production imminently. From the constant “is Ben Affleck staying or going” debate to the news that Flashpoint will reboot everything, our hearts are really fragile right now.

While there’s an element of truth to more than a fair share of these rumors, there are many that are completely ridiculous. To be rather frank, it’s the fault of these so-called “ace scoopers” who often release bogus tips to get the Internet into a frenzy about something they heard from a guy who heard it from his cousin’s girlfriend’s father’s co-worker at the liquor store. Also, Reddit is quickly becoming a source of great entertainment, since most of the users are purely trolling the media now. »

New Promo For The Gifted Introduces Us To All Of The Characters

2 hours ago

Now that Fox has formally slated X-Men spinoff The Gifted for a Monday night premiere, bumping Gotham to a Thursday night timeslot in the process, the network is beginning to drum up excitement for Bryan Singer and Matt Nix’s long-anticipated family drama, which will be with us on October 2nd.

Hatched as a collaboration between 20th Century Fox and Marvel, The Gifted chronicles the extraordinary journey of two vanilla, powerless parents – played here by Amy Acker and Stephen Moyer – who soon discover that their two children are harboring mutant abilities. And you thought teenage tantrums were bad enough.

And so, just as Lauren (Gotham‘s Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) grapple with their newfound powers, The Gifted really kicks into gear when our dysfunctional family is forced to hit the road to evade oncoming governmental forces. Not unlike the Transigen corporation featured in Logan, those shady »

8 Things We Want To See In The Next James Bond Movie

3 hours ago

After years of wading through rumours about the future of the James Bond franchise, we now at last know when the next installment of the series, the 25th outing overall, will land. The film, which has yet to be officially titled, is set to arrive in cinemas on November 8th, 2019.

All we know about Bond 25 for sure right now is that Daniel Craig will be appearing in it, making it his fifth appearance as the super spy. With Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes not returning, the likes of Yann Demange, Denis Villeneuve and David Mackenzie are all under consideration to helm the film. Story-wise, reports have alleged that Bond 25′s working title is Shatterhand, with a plot featuring a blind baddie and a trip to Croatia – though that remains unconfirmed.

But enough about what we might see. The better question is, what do we want to see »

No, Supergirl Will Not Be In Justice League

4 hours ago

San Diego Comic-Con is now over, but it brought with it a ton of goodies that fans are still buzzing about as they pick apart and dissect each and every trailer for any clues they can find that may tell them just a little bit more about their most anticipated upcoming releases.

Undoubtedly, one of the films that made the biggest splash last month was Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s Justice League. Though the blockbuster has been the subject of much uncertainty and worrying rumors lately, no one can deny that the new trailer Warner Bros. brought with them to Comic-Con was fantastic, showcasing some gorgeous shots, a few sure to be epic set pieces and our very first look at the villainous Steppenwolf.

At over 4 minutes in length, there was a lot to mull over in the preview and to no surprise, fans have already discovered a few very intriguing things. »

Ron Howard Teases Chewie In New Han Solo Bts Pic

6 hours ago

Back in June, production on Disney and Lucasfilm’s Han Solo spinoff ground to a halt after the abrupt firing of erstwhile directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

It’s an announcement that not only sent shockwaves through the Star Wars community, but also the industry itself, and the entire ordeal had echoes of those scathing rumors that plagued Rogue One: A Star Wars Story mid-way through filming. Bringing an end to the drama almost as quickly as it began, Disney then appointed the Oscar-winning Ron Howard in place of Lord and Miller, and filming has now resumed ahead of the movie’s expected release in May of 2018. Providing Disney and Howard can make that initial deadline, of course.

With nary a mention of the film codenamed Solo at D23 last month, it’s clear that all involved have their nose to the grindstone, so don’t expect to »

It’s A Really Exciting Time For The Show, Says Former Doctor Who Star

6 hours ago

To say that the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the thirteenth Time Lord has sparked heated debate online may read as something of an understatement – even if some of that debate has bordered on the ridiculous – but earlier this month, former Doctor Who companion Jenna Coleman cut through the noise to label Whittaker’s addition as a stroke of “genius.”

It’s a sentiment that many fans of the show, and indeed, most of its stars, share, and now that Peter Capaldi is ready to bid adieu to the Tardis and everything it represents, all eyes are beginning to turn toward series 11 ahead of its tentative 2018 release window. That launch date is subject to change, of course, but that hasn’t quelled excitement for Whittaker’s first full season as the famous Time Lord. And at least according to Coleman, who played the role of Clara Oswald across three seasons of Who, »

Justice League Dark Director Search Narrowed Down To Two

7 hours ago

Justice League Dark has been having a bit of a hard time getting off the ground. Once set to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, the project eventually fell into Doug Liman’s lap, at which point, it looked like things were good to go. However, the Edge of Tomorrow helmer shocked us all a few months back when he announced that he’d be walking from the film, citing scheduling conflicts as the reason for his departure.

Currently, Warner Bros. has yet to find a replacement, but from what we understand, the studio is aggressively searching for someone to fill the director’s chair and whoever they bring on board will “play a major role in the new” DC cinematic universe. For a while there, it sounded like It director Andy Muschietti and Argentinian filmmaker Damián Szifron were the top choices to replace Liman, but now we have another »

It’s Time To Save The World In New Kingsman: The Golden Circle Promo

8 hours ago

Just when you thought Eggsy had saved the world from total annihilation, and Taron Egerton’s sharp-suited Kingsman could look forward to an early retirement, a new nemesis emerges onto the scene. Her name? Poppy, a ruthless, psychotic entrepreneur who has been described as America’s sweetheart gone wrong. Or “Martha Stewart on crack.”

And so, by the time Kingsman: The Golden Circle begins, Julianne Moore’s unhinged antagonist has brought the top-secret Kingsman organization to its knees, forcing Eggsy and Merlin (Mark Strong) to uproot for America’s heartland – the mountains of Kentucky, to be specific – to buddy up with their U.S. counterpart, Statesman.

Whereas Kingsman is a quintessentially British organization, the Statesman began life in America’s heartland – high up in the mountains, to be specific, where its HQ masquerades as a rather ostentatious whiskey distillery. Yes, come September, the Kingsman franchise goes global, and we know »

Godzilla vs. Kong Will Be “A Massive Monster Brawl Movie”

9 hours ago

If Avengers: Infinity War stands as the culmination of everything that has come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, thereby laying the groundwork for an event movie unlike anything we’ve ever seen, the same can be said about Godzilla Vs. Kong. Well, sort of.

With Adam Wingard (The GuestDeath Note) at the helm and a prime 2020 release date in place, there’s a tangible sense of excitement swirling around Legendary and Warner Bros.’ crossover event, as it’ll herald a gladiator match between two of cinema’s time-honored creatures. Of course, thanks to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla and this year’s Kong: Skull Island, moviegoers have already been acquainted with Gojira and that skyscraping ape, and though many films of this nature usually forget to have any sort of emotional pull to get us invested in the creatures, it sounds like Godzilla vs. Kong won’t be repeating the mistakes of its predecessors. »

New Report Says Deadpool 2 Stunwoman Died From “Freak Accident”

22 hours ago

The cast and crew of Deadpool 2, and indeed the wider film industry at large, were left in a state of shock on Monday afternoon following the sudden death of stuntwoman Joi “Sj” Harris in Vancouver, Canada, who was killed when an on-set motorcycle stunt went horribly, horribly wrong.

Ryan Reynolds, a Vancouver native and the title star of David Leitch’s 2018 sequel, expressed his condolences in a heartfelt statement, stating that Joi’s passing had left him “heartbroken, shocked and devastated.” It’s believed that Joi Harris, an experienced road racer, was doubling for Domino (Zazie Beetz) at the time of the accident, and came off her motorcycle after multiple takes of the same scene. Investigations are still underway, but Deadline’s now obtained a pretty detailed account of what exactly happened to Harris and according to them, it was a “freak accident.”

It Director Admits He’s Not A Fan Of The Original

23 hours ago

If The Dark Tower was dead on arrival (our review), scoring a paltry $19 million in its opening weekend on domestic soil, then 2017’s other high-profile Stephen King adaptation, It, is poised for a potentially record-breaking box office splash in three weeks’ time.

Initial tracking suggests Andy Muschietti’s long-anticipated horror reboot is set for a huge $50 million opening weekend in the United States. And that’s merely the conservative estimate. Other analysts believe It‘s debut will scale as high as $60 million, in which case New Line and Muschietti’s R-rated thriller will set a new record for the month of September. The last live-action film to break past $40 million was Insidious: Chapter 2, while Hotel Transylvania 2 opened to around $48 million. That’s the number to beat, even if New Line and Warner Bros. are being cautious in their own internal projections.

Regardless of the exact figure it hits, »

Rumor: Zack Snyder Returning To Finish Off Justice League

18 August 2017 4:13 PM, PDT

The deluge of Justice League content – both official and unofficial – continues unabated.

In the past 24 hours alone, we’ve caught wind of Ben Affleck and his “more traditional [and] heroic” Caped Crusader, fan theories involving Green Lantern, and a poster that brings together the entire squad – yes, even Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel is featured in the latest Justice League one-sheet. In terms of what we have for you today, it might fall more into the rumor and speculation category, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less interesting.

Before we proceed, we’ll caution taking this with a grain of salt, as it hails from Reddit. Usually, that’d be a major red flag, but the user who posted this has delivered some accurate information in the past and while that doesn’t mean we should take this as fact, it’s enough to make it worth reporting on. »

Kylo Ren’s Journey In Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Be “Unexpected”

18 August 2017 3:28 PM, PDT

Adam Driver, the man behind the Star Wars franchise’s latest big bad, Kylo Ren, has briefly teased what his character’s journey will be like in The Last Jedi.

In a short chat with Sunday Today, the actor hinted that things may not play out the way we’d think. When asked if fans will enjoy what happens with Kylo in the film, he simply responded by saying, “God, I hope. I hope they will. I think it will be hopefully unexpected.”

Driver, who’s by now well-versed in watching what he says in interviews, obviously didn’t let much slip out here, but the use of the word “unexpected” is an intriguing one. After all, in The Force Awakens, we learned that Kylo Ren was really Ben Solo, the son of Han and Leia, who had been corrupted by Supreme Leader Snoke into joining the Dark Side.

Catch Up Before You Watch The Defenders With New Recap Video

18 August 2017 2:09 PM, PDT

It’s been an awful long time coming – too long, perhaps – but DaredevilJessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage are all finally ready to share the screen together for The Defenders, which is now available on Netflix.

Marvel’s starry ensemble series finds our street-level heroes going up against Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra and the nefarious organization known only as The Hand. Introduced via the second season of Daredevil – ditto for Jon Bernthal’s Punisher – it’s a criminal gang of ninjas and crooks that appears to hold ties to Stick, while we know that The Hand is responsible for reviving Elektra from the brink of death.

Truth be told, you’d be forgiven if some of this has slipped your mind. After all, a lot has happened in the Marvel/Netflix universe over the past couple of years and there’s been much to keep track of. Thankfully, »

Peter Capaldi Hints At His Next Job After Doctor Who

18 August 2017 1:35 PM, PDT

Peter Capaldi has hinted at what his next job may be after vacating Doctor Who later this year. The Scottish actor has been busy starring as the titular time-travelling Time Lord for the past little while, but now he’s free to take on a new challenge and as it turns out, Capaldi might be about to team up with an old colleague.

During last month’s San Diego Comic-Con, TVGuide asked him if he would like to guest star on Veep, the political sitcom created by Armando Ianucci, who previously wrote The Thick of It. For those who don’t know, before Doctor Who, Capaldi was most famous for his critically-acclaimed turn as foul-mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker on that show.

Though he wouldn’t give a definite answer to the outlet, he did say this:

“I don’t know … Maybe that would be fun. I’d certainly be able to swear again! »

Willem Dafoe On How Aquaman’s Underwater Scenes Are Filmed

18 August 2017 12:31 PM, PDT

Even though the first footage to be culled from Aquaman was shown at San Diego Comic-Con, the folks over at Warner Bros. have elected to withhold it from the public at large for the time being. So, until a full-blown trailer for the blockbuster starring Jason Momoa actually finds its way online, we’ll have to rely on set photos and the like in order to help tide us over.

Well, that in addition to whatever details the cast are at liberty to divulge. Truth be told, the specifics as to how the filmmakers will go about shooting dramatic scenes set underwater actually slipped my mind. Yes, I’m fully aware to expect what are sure to be some truly mind-blowing action sequences, but what of those moments of exposition taking place within Atlantis itself?

Betty Will Be Central To Riverdale Season 2’s Mystery, New Promo Debuts

18 August 2017 11:49 AM, PDT

Although it may feel a bit far removed from its source material at times, Riverdale consistently made for some truly compelling television throughout its inaugural season by not only delivering much in the way of drama, but also by having a riveting murder mystery serving as its backbone.

That being said, some viewers were left wondering how the series’ producers would be able to draw them in for a second helping, but, lo and behold, Archie’s dad was brutally shot at the end of May’s finale. Not surprisingly, this will serve as the springboard to what’s looking to be an even darker sophomore year, as the latest promo (seen above) shows the young Mr. Andrews seemingly about do go all Death Wish by channeling his inner Paul Kersey.

But knowing that Kj Apa has a rich cast backing him up, it’s only expected that each of »

10 Horror Movies To Watch On Netflix If You Want A Scary Night

18 August 2017 11:21 AM, PDT

People watch horror movies in all kinds of ways.

Some of us guys know to use them when we want a girl to cuddle up next to us (I remember trying that with The Woman in Black, and ended up being more scared than my lady companion). Many try their luck watching them to prove they’re tough, while I also know plenty of people who refuse to watch a scary movie alone; safety in numbers, I suppose.

But of course, the best way to watch horror, a genre which can sometimes be plagued by low-budget productions or horrendous acting, is to buy into it and give yourself up to the storytelling, the anxiety, and yes, even the jump scares.

No matter how you want to spend your movie night, Netflix has a great assortment of scary tales for your displeasure. With a few selections from various franchises, there are »

Billy Rides Again On Japanese Jigsaw Poster

18 August 2017 11:18 AM, PDT

After taking a lengthy – and much needed – hiatus from cinemas, the Saw franchise is finally ready to once again shed gallons of blood with its latest installment, Jigsaw. But despite featuring a returning Tobin Bell who’s set to reprise the role of John Kramer in some capacity, all signs point toward a copycat at play, but more on that later.

So, while the debate as to whether Kramer was a serial killer or misunderstood crimefighter rages on, we can take solace in knowing that yet another familiar totem of the highly lucrative horror franchise will make its return. This time, though, the latest piece of promotional material comes to us in the form of a poster hyping the film’s Japanese release (seen below), with Billy the puppet prominently featured.

From the very beginning, Billy served as one of the original Jigsaw killer’s trademarks, so it’s quite »
