Creepy Jigsaw Stills Tease Danger At Every Corner

37 minutes ago

“Become Jigsaw.”

Fueling rumors that Michael and Peter Spierig’s upcoming horror sequel focuses on John Kramer’s twisted disciples, and not the man himself, yesterday Lionsgate rolled out a slew of stark one-sheets for Jigsaw and, well, let’s just say they weren’t your average character posters. Rather than placing the spotlight on the film’s ensemble cast, each portrait featured a loyal follower of Kramer’s, replete with blood-drenched pig mask to drive the point home: these protégés intend to bring about a new reign of terror, and in the fallout of Jigsaw‘s first teaser trailer, horror fans are already reeling at the wild traps in store.

Working from a script composed by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, the Spierig Brothers have been tasked with pumping fresh blood into one of horror’s modern-day favorites, and when Michael Spierig was asked to deliver an elevator pitch for Jigsaw, »

American Horror Story Season 7 Title Finally Revealed

8 hours ago

American Horror Story isn’t a show that tends to display its wares ahead of time. As a matter of fact, FX often goes to great lengths in order to retain a sense of mystery and intrigue around its prized horror anthology series, even going so far as to releasing faux promos to keep viewers in the dark.

It’ll return later this year for a seventh season, one which will mine inspiration from the Presidential Election of 2016. Further details on that political theme and its many characters remain under lock and key, but according to Deadline, the title has now been revealed – after much teasing and speculation.

During a special fan-driven event that took place at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that season 7 has been dubbed American Horror Story: Cult. It’s not the most exciting or informative reveal, but it does at least paint a bit »

Exclusive Preview: The Chief Is Back In Doom Patrol #7

More From The Web Click to zoom 

In addition to turning heads with its Rebirth initiative last year, DC made a bold statement by launching a new imprint known as Young Animal. Sprung from the mind of Gerard Way (yes, the guy from My Chemical Romance), it’s granted quite the new perspective on the DC Universe. Some books in the line offer fresh takes on lesser known characters, while others serve up something new like Mother Panic. To be honest, that one has captured my attention more than any other because Gotham City could probably be considered my second home, but that’s a conversation for another day.

If one title could be considered what one would call a “flagship book” though, I’d have to say that it’d most certainly be Doom Patrol. Not only is it written by Way himself, »

Marvel Brings New Inhumans Trailer To Comic-Con

10 hours ago

Marvel Studios and ABC are finally – finally! – ready to thrust the otherworldly city of Attilan under the spotlight, bringing us yet another new trailer for their next joint effort.

Ever since both parties decided to overhaul Inhumans to be an eight-part TV series, rather than a feature film, wanting fans have been left on tenterhooks, pouring over an amalgamation of leaked trailers and unofficial set photos, not to mention a quick teaser. That all changed a few weeks back, though, when we finally got the first full trailer. It might not have pleased everyone, but from the impressive set design to Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) channeling a certain Ramsay Bolton, there’s a lot to look forward to when the show lights up ABC in a few months’ time.

Now, we’ve got yet another batch of footage to feast on and it places a big emphasis on the upcoming IMAX release. »

Insecure Season 2 Review

10 hours ago

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

If there was a major flaw in Insecure‘s freshman season, it’s that it ended. The first eight episodes of Issa Rae’s astute series about the lives of a group of late-twenty-something black women on the outskirts of Los Angeles was surprisingly clever, even though the stories being told (of love triangles and dating apps and drama-filled weekend trips to Malibu) were themselves never overtly surprising.

But that didn’t matter then, and it doesn’t matter in Insecure‘s sophomore season. The show is still a straightforward send-up of quarter-life crisis angst, but it feels different and special because it is different and special. There’s an embrace and celebration of black culture that permeates every scene, but Rae doesn’t rest on her laurels for a second in Insecure. The show works because she’s created a group of »

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles Review

11 hours ago

We’ve all got that game we go to at the end of a really stressful week. It’s the one that makes you take out a blanket, stock up on snacks, and happily snuggle into the familiar world. For me, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is now one of these games. That’s not to say that me and Yonder didn’t get into a few arguments along the way, but the world is just so calming that I keep wanting to get back under my gaming blanket and return.

At first, I was unsure of what to expect. Yonder’s rather pitiful character creation only consisted of a few body sliders, while the introduction cutscene was rather cliché. Essentially, my little protagonist got shipwrecked on a journey back to their homeland. Here, the guardian spirit explained that the land of Gemea had been covered by a mysterious poison called The Murk, »

Legion’s Noah Hawley Developing A Doctor Doom Movie For Fox

11 hours ago

It really is a shame what happened with the Fantastic Four reboot. You had a promising, young director at the helm, with an impressive cast set to bring the titular family to life. All signs pointed to an exciting new take on the property, but then the film hit theaters.

What went wrong, you ask? Well, just about everything, actually. One of the biggest disappointments though was the way the villain, Doctor Doom, was handled. While Toby Kebbell didn’t necessarily do a bad job in the role, the reshoots ended up cutting a lot of his scenes, leaving the character as a pretty underwhelming antagonist in the final product. That’s why we’re so excited by this most recent bit of news coming out of Comic-Con.

Earlier today at the convention, Legion creator Noah Hawley dropped a bombshell on those in attendance when he announced that he’s »

Syfy Debuts First Trailer For Krypton At Comic-Con

12 hours ago

When you take a moment to combine the current roster of Marvel and DC-related TV shows – both on air and in the pipeline – you’ll no doubt uncover a treasure trove of costumed crusaders. On the one hand, Marvel has made serious headway through its collaboration with Netflix, resulting in four standalone series in the form of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Mike Colter’s Hero for Hire, Luke Cage. With four solo shows now under their belt though, all eyes are beginning to turn toward The Defenders ahead of its bow in August.

DC, meanwhile, has found great success within the Arrowverse – an umbrella that encompasses The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Vixen and Legends of Tomorrow. But there’s another show looming on the horizon, and its name is Krypton. Set to debut on Syfy at some point next year, we’d seen a leaked trailer and a brief »

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets Review

12 hours ago

Luc Besson’s Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets opens, sans surprise, with David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” launching our senses into orbit. A perfect musical selection, correct? Yes, until the song reveals a double meaning. As “Ground control to Major Tom” plays atop interstellar diplomacy, we realize that “perfect” can be swapped with “obvious.” James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy mixtapes display deep, connected curation, while Besson’s first track has been used and reused throughout sci-fi history. This sets a constant tone as motivations, dialogue, and casting all elicit audible sighs. Something so beautiful should never be this hollow, yet Besson’s shooting star burns premature and fizzles out with a put-put sputter.

Dane DeHaan stars as the titular Major Valerian, whose romantic interest in partner Sergeant Laureline (Cara Delevingne) remains his biggest challenge. Heists? Alien thugs? Snarling creatures? All a piece of mooncake for Valerian. »

Charlize Theron Had To Turn Down A Role In Wonder Woman

13 hours ago

She’s already playing a super cool secret agent in Atomic Blonde, but Charlize Theron could have been in another woman warrior movie this year as well.

While promoting the aforementioned film, the actress revealed that she was originally offered a part in DC’s phenomenally-successful Wonder Woman but had to turn it down, likely due to scheduling conflicts. The star, who was also recently seen as the villain of The Fate and the Furious, was on The Howard Stern Show and explained that director Patty Jenkins had reached out to her about a role in the film, but they weren’t able to make it work.

“No, I’m not in Wonder Woman. We’re friends. I think the world of her. We have a mutual respect for each other. She did come to me, and at the time I was either working on something or I don’t know. »

X-Men Spinoff Gambit Still Moving Forward At Fox, According To Channing Tatum

14 hours ago

20th Century Fox’s Sdcc panel came and went without so much of a hint towards the studio’s X-Men universe, which is all the more surprising when you consider that New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix are all slated for release in 2018.

But don’t let the radio silence fool you, all projects are marching along at a brisk clip – Gambit included. Chatting to ComicBook.com in the aftermath of Fox’s panel, which largely focused on Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Eggy’s transatlantic romp, Tatum turned in a status report on the long-brewing spinoff movie, revealing that Fox is still actively working on the troubled project.

After losing Doug Liman (Live Die Repeat and Repeat), it looked certain that Gambit had been placed back on ice at the studio, and even though Channing Tatum is currently committed to The Golden Circle – until September, at least »

Avengers: Infinity War Sdcc Poster Brings Together Some Of Your Favorite Marvel Mascots

15 hours ago

A handful of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes join forces with Spidey and the Guardians in this exclusive Sdcc poster for Avengers: Infinity War.

Coming to us straight from the show floor (with a tip of the hat to Marvel’s Twitter feed), below you’ll find two close-ups of that poster in question, which takes many of your favorite Marvel mascots and projects them onto a cosmic scale. Sadly, and after close inspection, there seems to be no sign of Scott Lang’s diminutive alter-ego, Ant-Man, which feels like more a missed opportunity than anything else. Regardless, those in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con will be able to nab a copy for themselves, while Marvel’s Sdcc panel has already been confirmed for Saturday, July 22nd at 5:30 pm Pt.

Marvel Studios is purportedly bringing its big guns to Hall H this weekend, and though he may be biased, Mark Ruffalo »

For those lucky enough to attend San Diego Comic-Con this year, the next few days should be a weekend to remember, as attendees of the event will be given unprecedented access to the cast, crew, costumes, props and more from many of the biggest movies and TV shows in Hollywood. For those of us who couldn’t make it, however, the most we can hope for is to vicariously live out the experience through Twitter.

One booth that fans will want to check out is that of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead. This year, it’s set-dressed from the outside to resemble the Alexandria Safe Zone, in which Rick and his band of survivors have lived during the recent seasons of the show. Inside, however, there are a horde of undead mannequins, »

20th Century Fox Brings New Kingsman: The Golden Circle Footage To Sdcc

16 hours ago

San Diego Comic-Con is off to a spectacular start, as 20th Century Fox opened its panel with an exclusive clip from Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Moderator Jonathan Ross welcomed cast members Taron Egerton, Channing Tatum, Colin Firth, Jeff Bridges, Pedro Pascal and Halle Berry, along with screenwriter Jane Goldman and original Kingsman artist Dave Gibbons.

Unfortunately, director Matthew Vaughn wasn’t present, since he’s still in the UK working on the final cut of the movie, but a video message from him was screened and the sequel’s opening scene was played for the audience. In it, Taron Egerton’s Eggsy is accosted by a character from the first film and thrust into an epic car chase through the streets of London. With fighting and knife stunts included, the action set-piece reaches its explosive climax in Hyde Park, whereupon Eggsy – under guidance from Merlin – drives his damaged vehicle into »

Sherlock Co-Creator Hints At What The Future Holds For Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sleuth

16 hours ago

The mystery and intrigue surrounding the as-yet-unconfirmed fifth season of Sherlock is becoming so complex – so frustratingly complex – that even Benedict Cumberbatch’s legendary sleuth would struggle to crack the case.

And though the show’s co-creator Steven Moffat was in attendance at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con to promote Doctor Who, when it comes to the fabled Sherlock season 5, sadly the song remains the same: Moffat and the team remain open to the idea of another instalment, but refuse to commit to anything so soon. Scheduling has been cited as the primary cause for concern, and due to Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s stacked slates, the fifth season of Sherlock is at least two years away…if not longer.

That’s something that Moffat and executive producer Sue Vertue echoed during a recent Sdcc panel (via Deadline), where the latter placed eager fans on a knife edge by revealing that, »

New Evidence Suggests Captain Marvel Will Appear In Avengers: Infinity War

16 hours ago

While we’ve been repeatedly assured that every Marvel character that has already been introduced will appear in Avengers: Infinity War, we have yet to hear confirmation about the much anticipated Captain Marvel – due to be played by Brie Larson in the McU’s first female-led movie.

Though her casting was announced a full year ago, the popular comic book hero has yet to make her big screen debut. That could change though with the upcoming Avengers flick, as evidence is mounting that she might get a Spider-Man/Black Panther style introduction, before her even bigger moment in the spotlight in her own solo film.

Firstly, there was an Instagram post by Ryan Fleck, who will be co-directing the Captain Marvel movie with Anna Boden. While it’s been reported that filming on the character’s standalone effort is not due to begin until at least January 2018, Fleck posted a »

First Plot Details For Pacific Rim: Uprising Point To A Kaiju Resurgence

17 hours ago

What is a Jaeger? That’s a very good question.

It’s you, times a thousand. It’s a skyscraping mech capable of beating transdimensional monsters to a pulp, and in Pacific Rim: Uprising, director Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) will be introducing moviegoers to a new fleet of Jaegers – each with a name more wonderful than the last.

From Guardian Bravo to Titan Redeemer, the Pacific Rim universe has always worn its heart firmly on its oversized metallic sleeve, with each individual Jaeger being bent and shaped to properly represent the city it guards. They’re the near-future equivalent of gladiators, essentially, and for the Us of A, Gipsy Avenger will become the country’s newfound mascot in 2018.

In line with early rumors, Avenger is ostensibly a remodeled version of Gipsy Danger from the original Pacific Rim, and to help add context to today’s Sdcc promo, Legendary and Warner Bros. »

The Drums Of War Beat Loudly In Call Of Duty: WWII’s Nazi Zombies Reveal Trailer

17 hours ago

At last, Call of Duty: WWII developer Sledgehammer Games has pulled back the blood-stained curtain on the shooter’s Nazi Zombies mode, revealing a horde of festering undead just waiting to be peppered with bullets.

For those that caught wind of the leaked trailer earlier this week, the official one (above) shown today at the San Diego Comic-Con contains much of the same footage, though there are a few notable differences. For starters, the Army of the Dead title that flashed up on screen at the conclusion of the leaked version has been replaced with the simpler, but no less self-explanatory, Nazi Zombies logo, a name that’s sure to delight fans of the original maps from Call of Duty: World at War.

Indeed, it’s been a while since fans have been able to enjoy the delights of downing endless waves of undead Third Reich soldiers, but as is »

Sdcc Poster For It Floats Online; Joe Hill Says Adaptation Is Among The Scariest Films Ever Made

17 hours ago

When New Line’s It movie creeps into theaters in two months’ time, it’ll join the horror pantheon.

At least, that’s according to Joe Hill (son of the great Stephen King), who took part in a recent Q&A session to field all manner of questions about Andy Muschietti’s two-part adaptation. It’s not your typical book-to-screen translation, given how Muschietti plans to release a sequel in the not-so-distant future to revisit the Losers Club 30 years after the fact, when they decide to bring an end to Pennywise’s reign of terror once and for all. It’s an ambitious, somewhat unconventional spin on a novel many consider to be among King’s best, so with that in mind, consider us on board.

Stick a pin in that one for now, because with Sdcc getting underway in San Diego, New Line is in attendance to promote its »

Arrow Ep’s Comments Further Hint At Multiple Big Bads For Season 6

18 hours ago

In the past week, we sure have learned a lot about what to expect from Arrow season 6, whether it be the latest Black Canary’s new look or hearing that Ricardo Diaz/Richard Dragon will likely be the big bad for the coming year. Speaking of which, more information has come to light suggesting that he won’t be alone.

By that, I mean we could very well be looking at a small screen translation of “the Long Bow Hunters,” a group that, aside from Diaz, also includes the likes of the Clock King, Brick, Count Vertigo, Red Dart and Killer Moth. And knowing how most of those characters have already shown up in the Arrowverse, it’s not outside the realm of possibility to introduce the others – or put a couple already known to viewers in their place.

When recently speaking with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Wendy Mericle helped »
