First Critics TV Spot For Deadpool Hails It As A Game Changer For The Genre

1 hour ago

Box office analysts are expecting big things for Deadpool this weekend, and the R-Rated superhero movie is going to be helped in a big way by the plethora of positive reviews which have been doing the rounds (you can find out what we thought of the movie by clicking here).

Now, 20th Century Fox has released the first critics TV spot for the movie, and it features some awesome new scenes as we see the Merc with the Mouth break the fourth wall and make great use of slow motion.

Speculation is already running rampant about what the studio has planned for the Deadpool franchise, and some fans believe we’ll get the sequel as soon as next year. That seems unlikely in all honesty, as they’d need to get the script written and shooting started within the next few months. Stranger things have happened though, so we’ll »

Will Smith Says Bad Boys 3 Is “Definitely” In The Works

1 hour ago

Shit just got real, folks, Will Smith has reaffirmed that long-rumored action sequel Bad Boys 3 is still very much on the cards and will reunite him with his old partner-in-crime, Martin Lawrence.

Word comes by way of BBC Radio 1Xtra, where Smith revealed that he crossed paths with his former co-star Lawrence recently for the first time in years, which was seemingly enough for the actor to confirm that the time is nigh for the threequel to move forward.

“I saw Martin [Lawrence] a few weeks ago,” Smith revealed. “I haven’t seen him for about two years. We just looked at each other. We hugged. In that moment, we knew we were making another Bad Boys. We’re definitely doing another one.”

Further in the interview, the Concussion star noted that “there’s such a pull for nostalgia” in the movie industry of 2016, referencing upcoming franchise revivals in the »

Andy Mientus To Return To The Flash As Pied Piper In A Very Unexpected Way

2 hours ago

Tonight’s episode of The Flash is going to bring back some familiar faces in very different roles as Barry and Cisco pay a visit to Earth-2 with Harrison Wells, but The CW has today revealed that another character will be coming back later this year. However, when Andy Mientus returns as Pied Piper, he won’t be an alternate Earth doppelgänger. Instead, it’s said that he will “wreak havoc once again on his former colleagues when The Flash impossibly revisits an earlier timeline.”

Barry has time travelled a fair bit, but why this trip is going to lead to Pied Piper making his comeback is hard to say. More importantly, a journey back in time is never good, so who knows what will have happened to force The Flash to do so yet again. All we know for sure right now is that this is all going down »

New Character Posters For Allegiant Highlight The Survivors Of Lionsgate’s Dystopia

2 hours ago

Director Robert Schwentke may not be returning for 2017’s Ascendant, but before he parts ways with The Divergent Series in earnest, there’s still next month’s hotly-anticipated threequel, Allegiant.

Perhaps in an effort to smooth over the cracks of Schwentke’s exit, Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have showcased a slew of character posters for the next chapter in the dystopian franchise, spotlighting the key players in anticipation of the film’ arrival.

More News From The Web

Among the band of survivors are Shailene Woodley and Theo James, who will take up arms once again as Tris and Four in only a few weeks’ time. In their search for the elusive Bureau of Genetic Welfare, both characters and their fellow freedom fighters venture beyond the towering walls of post-apocalyptic Chicago, and the film’s most recent trailer showcased that there’s nine kinds of dangers lurking in the scorched desert. »

deadmau5 Uploads More New Music To His SoundCloud

2 hours ago

deadmau5 is continuing on with his barrage of new music today. After giving us two new “Project Entropy” cuts at the end of January, Joel is back with “Carp,” a track that sees him back on form.

Boasting a sound that will be familiar to his longtime fans, the song moves away from more of the experimental sounds that the producer has been toying with lately and instead goes for that classic deadmau5 feel. That is, once the eerie intro, made up mostly of gentle plucks is finished.

It takes about 35 seconds, but before long we’re back into that familiar groove, as the track really picks up, making great use of the drum kit and progressive electro sounds that Joel is known for. Throw in an interesting chord progression and you have a piece of work that fits comfortably into the DJ’s collection of music.

“Carp” is certainly »

Riverdale Casts Betty Cooper And Jughead Jones

2 hours ago

After recently learning that The CW finally ordered a pilot episode for the subversive take on Archie Comics known as Riverdale, we all knew that casting news would not be far off. While the man himself, Archie Andrews, has yet to be cast, we now know who will play some of his closest friends.

The first role that has been confirmed to have been filled is that of one of Archie’s longtime love interests, Betty Cooper. Lili Reinhart (Surviving Jack, The Kings of Summer) will play the small town’s favorite malt sipping blonde who is described as “sweet, studious, eager-to-please and wholesome with a huge crush on her longtime best friend, Archie. Tired of being the perfect daughter, student, sister, etc., she turns to her new friend, Veronica, for life advice — much to the consternation of her emotionally brittle mother.”

Meanwhile, Jughead Jones, whom Archie Comics recently launched a solo series for, »

Keira Knightley Circling Role In David Frankel’s Star-Studded Collateral Beauty

2 hours ago

It’s been a busy twenty-four hours in the Collateral Beauty camp. Earlier today, we brought you the news that Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema had finally settled on a release date for David Frankel’s character drama – opposite Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, no less – and now Keira Knightley is the latest in line to join the film’s starry ensemble.

Will Smith is front and center for this one, headlining Collateral Beauty as a New York marketing executive who finds himself down in the dumps after a personal tragedy strikes. Flanking him for Frankel’s unconventional drama are Helen Mirren, Edward Norton and Naomie Harris, along with End of Watch and Ant-Man star Michael Peña. And though casting specifics have remained under lock and key for now, Knightley is reportedly circling the role of Love.

You see, for Collateral Beauty, the script – one penned by Allan Loeb »

Ready Player One Pushed Into 2018 To Avoid Clash With Star Wars: Episode VIII

3 hours ago

Following in the footsteps of James Cameron’s long-gestating Avatar sequel, Warner Bros. has officially pushed pack Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One film into 2018.

Originally scheduled to open on December 15, 2017, the sci-fi adaptation will now hit theaters on March 30, 2018. Yes, it seems Disney and Lucasfilm’s decision to bump Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII into late 2017 – December 15, to be specific – has had a resounding effect on Hollywood’s slate of blockbusters, setting off a domino effect that has now made an impact on Warner’s release plans for Spielberg’s futuristic tentpole.

Given that Ready Player One is still simmering in pre-production, news of delay shouldn’t prove too damaging for the studio’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s eponymous novel. At the time of writing, only Olivia Cooke and Ben Mendelsohn have been confirmed to star, with the latter on board to play the role of the film’s chief villain. »

Pixar’s Forgetful Fish Is Lost In The Deep Blue In New Posters For Finding Dory

3 hours ago

Despite the fact Andrew Stanton’s long-awaited animated sequel is arriving a full 13 years after its beloved predecessor, only six months have lapsed for aquatic life under the sea, and today’s series of posters for Finding Dory prove that Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful explorer is still as playful as ever.

Keeping up her habit of swimming (and swimming and swimming), the images are as much a showcase of Pixar’s vibrant rendition of the deep blue as they are a game of hide-and-seek.

Returning along DeGeneres for the adventure are Albert Brooks and Hayden Rolence – replacing Alexander Gould from the 2003 original – and it’s only when Dory catches sight of manta rays migrating home while attending a school trip with Nemo that she sparks a burning desire to find her wayward parents. It’s a desire she didn’t realise she had in the first place, of course, and Finding Dory »

New Star Trek TV Series Gets Bryan Fuller As Showrunner

3 hours ago

Before he brought us the likes of the Hannibal TV show and Dead Like Me, lifelong Star Trek fan Bryan Fuller began his career writing for Deep Space Nine and Voyager - and now some 15 years later he gets to return to the franchise he’s loved since he was a kid.

CBS has announced that Fuller will board their new Star Trek series as co-creator and showrunner, alongside fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman. The press release contains quotes from both:

My very first experience of ‘Star Trek’ is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls. Before seeing a frame of the television series, the ‘Star Trek’ universe lit my imagination on fire,” said executive producer Bryan Fuller. “It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand-new »

Preacher Adds Jackie Earle Haley As Odin Quincannon

4 hours ago

Though we still haven’t heard a peep about any potential Saint of Killers casting, AMC’s small-screen take on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s controversial comic series, Preacher,  has added a different villain in the form of the loathsome Odin Quincannon, who will be played by Oscar nominated Watchmen actor Jackie Earle Haley.

According to THR, Hayley has booked a six-episode arc on the show, which is being headed up by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. In the comics, Quincannon is the odious owner of the meat factory in the town of Salvation, and pretty much runs the town. He also happens to a member of the Kkk, and has a predilection for, well…. having sex with a giant woman made out of meat. There’s just no subtle way to put that.

From the sounds of the accompanying character description, the show will be relocating him to »

Exclusive Video Interview: Rebel Wilson Talks How To Be Single

4 hours ago

There are many romantic movies out there about people hoping to find their soulmates or significant others, but How To Be Single looks to break that trend as it features a variety of characters who manage to find fulfillment in different ways.

Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey) stars as Alice, a recent college graduate who has just broken up with her longtime boyfriend and moves to Manhattan to explore what it’s like to be on her own. She has her loving, career-minded sister Meg (Leslie Mann) to depend on for support as well as her best friend and party animal Robin (Rebel Wilson), who is determined to show how to be single successfully in New York.

In addition, we also get to meet other characters like Lucy (Alison Brie), who is obsessed with online dating, bartender Tom (Anders Holm), who has long since turned the one-night stand into an art form, »

Borgore Premieres ID From New Album During Jauz’s B2B Set In L.A.

5 hours ago

Jauz’s legendary back-to-back performance at the Fonda Theater in L.A. is proving to be the set that keeps on giving. Not only did he bring enough top-tier bass music artists onstage for what could have just as easily been the lineup of a small festival, but Borgore was also given a platform to debut new music.

On his Facebook page, Borgore revealed that the ID he dropped in the clip above is a track from his upcoming album (for which he has yet to reveal a title or announce a tentative release date for).

As we’ve pointed out before the Israeli DJ/producer has not let dubstep’s fall from the Edm community’s favor shy him away from putting out filthy, bass-heavy wobble bombs, and what he premiered during Jauz’s set is no exception.

Listen to the clip of Borgore‘s as-yet-unnamed track from his »

SFX Entertainment’s List Of Unpaid Debts Emerges From Bankruptcy Filing

6 hours ago

Edm conglomerate SFX Entertainment has found itself the subject of ongoing scrutiny in light of its recent bankruptcy filing, and in the days that have passed, numerous details of the company’s unsavory business practices have come to light. Most recently, after its bankruptcy filing, a list of SFX’s outstanding debts has reached the public.

Digital Music News obtained the list, and narrowed it down to only the 40 largest amounts – all of which still come out to just shy of half a billion dollars. Among the more noteworthy individuals named is promoter Paolo Moreno, whom was just awarded an $11 million settlement after suing SFX Entertainment CEO Robert F.X. Sillerman for stealing the ideas which led to the company’s formation.

Many of the companies listed share direct ties to SFX – which would suggest a common interest in the company’s recovery. CrowdRX, for instance, was founded by SFX board »

Exclusive Interview: Alan Ritchson, Eric Falconer And Chris “Romanski” Romano Talk Blue Mountain State

6 hours ago

Once upon a time, Spike introduced a show called Blue Mountain State that would later become one of my most re-watched addictions. No matter how many times Thad Castle ran the cookie race or hit Golden Arm with his truck, the Bms Goats hilariously reveled in their asinine, drug-fueled absurdity.

Sure, it’s fratty, brobeans comedy on steroids, but creators Eric Falconer and Chris “Romanski” Romano cover all their bases (or manage all their assignments?) rather well for a show built on relentless immaturity. That was until Spike unceremoniously axed the show after Season 3, and Bms fans were left without Alex Moran’s senior year.

It was then that Falconer, Romanski, and the faithful Goats started a Kickstarter fund to save Blue Mountain State, and they were met with an offering of $1.9 million from their devoted fanbase. This outpouring of generosity is why we now have the newly-released movie, Blue Mountain State: The Rise Of Thadland »

New Street Fighter V Trailer Showcases F.A.N.G’s Poisonous Repertoire

6 hours ago

Capcom announced new Street Fighter V character F.A.N.G. back at the tail end of 2015, but how much do we really know about M. Bison’s new second-in-command of terrorist group Shadaloo? Besides the flamboyant dress sense and arrogant demeanour, the answer to that question is, frankly, not much.

Thankfully, Capcom released a new video on their Capcom Fighters YouTube channel yesterday that showcases the fighter’s rather toxic moveset. You’ll no doubt immediately notice how insanely fast F.A.N.G is in the video (above), but the beanstalk-shaped henchman has a far more worrying set of abilities that’ll be sure to irritate his opponents.

F.A.N.G’s V-Skill and V-Trigger – mechanics that serve a similar function to supers and Focus Attacks in Street Fighter IV – revolve entirely around the use of a poisonous substance that can be utilized as both a projectile »

Ubisoft Confirms Plans To Host Open Beta For The Division Later This Month

6 hours ago

If you weren’t one of the fortunate few to partake in last month’s closed beta, don’t fret; Ubisoft has announced plans to host an open beta for The Division in only a couple of weeks’ time, and similarly to the first bout of testing, it’ll go live for Xbox One users first.

It should be noted that no pre-order will be required when the open beta kicks off on Microsoft’s current-gen system come February 18, which will then make the jump to PlayStation 4 and PC after a 24-hour period of exclusivity. From there, it’ll run through the weekend before wrapping up across all platforms on February 21.

Ubisoft also teased that an additional story mission will be included that wasn’t a part of the closed beta, while today’s brand new trailer introduces the four main factions found in The Division: The Rikers, Rioters, The Cleaners, »

Playmobil Movie Picks Up Momentum, Frozen Animator Lino Di Salvo On Board To Direct

6 hours ago

German toy manufacturer Playmobil is pushing full steam ahead with an animated feature based on the property, and Variety is reporting that the nascent project has appointed Frozen animator Lino Di Salvo at the helm.

Bearing the subtitle Robbers, Thieves & Rebels, news of the film first came to light last year, tethered with a production budget of $75 million. Di Salvo’s addition is the first tangible sign of progress in some time, however, and given that the animator has 17 years at Disney under his belt, today’s news represents a major coup for both Playmobil and its upcoming feature.

Parisian production company On Animation Studios (The Little Prince) have lent its support to the project, with Dimitri Rassam and Aton Soumache producing on behalf of the banner. Wild Bunch and Pathe, meanwhile, will take point for international sales and distribution. Now that the film is beginning to take shape, here »

Destiny’s Crimson Doubles Valentine’s Event Goes Live Later Today

7 hours ago

Destiny‘s Valentine’s Day inspired event – Crimson Doubles – goes live later today, bringing with it some new loot and emotes to get a hold of. The event is due to go live any moment now, and besides the patch bringing with it a sea of rose petal to bathe The Tower in red, taking centre stage is the new Crimson Doubles PvP mode.

The new 2v2 mode pits both couples in direct competition for victory, but it’s not quite that simple. The first team to clinch five round wins emerges the ultimate victor, but there’s some new twists on the usual doubles gameplay in the form of new buffs and items that endow you with love-themed boons depending on the situation.

First of all, if your partner falls in battle, you’ll be endowed with the ‘Heartbroken’ buff, which will grant you the ability to swap weapons »

New Poster And Trailer For Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise Say Goodbye To The Real World

7 hours ago

Later this year, moviegoers will be cordially invited to StudioCanal’s High-Rise (otherwise known as Ben Wheatley’s twisted tower of terror), and today’s poster and trailer showcase what happens when Tom Hiddleston’s protagonist bids farewell to the real world.

The actor assumes the role of the intellectual Dr. Robert Laing, who seeks residence in the titular sky-scraper. Held up as the solution to the societal ills of 1970s London, the tower block quickly descends into a cesspool of drugs and violence, with Hiddleston’s Laing caught up somewhere in the middle. Where exactly our protagonist finds himself is of the utmost importance, too, considering that the setup bears semblance to Snowpiercer by relegating the lower class to the bottom floors and upper class to the penthouses.

Less utopian haven and more dystopian nightmare, High-Rise has all the makings of a dark psychological thriller, and considering that Wheatley »
