New Video Essay Says What We’ve All Been Thinking: DC Films Characters Suck

8 hours ago

The most charitable thing that can be said about DC Films’ slate of movies so far is that they’ve made money. It should have been obvious from the moment Zack Snyder was handed the keys to the universe we all should have been a bit more skeptical of what was to come. But, alas, many of us lifelong DC fans naively clung to hope. Obviously, the folly of such hope has now been plainly writ in three increasingly dumb, bafflingly incoherent films.

Will Ferrell Rules Out ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel

9 hours ago

Today seems to be one where people wanting sequels are having their dreams crushed. First, Guillermo del Toro closed the door on “Hellboy 3,” and now Will Ferrell is wiping his hands of a much-dreamed-about follow-up to “Step Brothers.”

“You have to resist the temptation,” the actor told Rolling Stone. “It’s just tough because the things everyone wants you to do sequels of are special because there’s not a sequel of it.

James Cameron Discusses Going 3D With ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’ & More In 25-Minute Talk

11 hours ago

Following the Berlin Film Festival premiere of the 3D-converted “Terminator 2: Judgement Day,” James Cameron jumped onto Facebook to answer questions from fans. And the conversation ranged from the thoughts behind giving ‘Judgement Day’ the 3D treatment, to the possibility of returning to the franchise.

“I think the overall quality of the film, the quality of the presentation; we worked very hard on good 3D. We started with a 4K transfer, then we did a degraining process, so it actually looks better, even if you watch it in 2D it would look better than it did on the day,” the director said about this new version of ‘Judgement Day,’ which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

Buckle Up, ‘The Fate Of The Furious’ Rumored Runtime Will Take You On A Long Ride

13 hours ago

With “The Fate Of The Furious” marking the eighth entry in the supercharged franchise, it’s safe to say that Vin Diesel‘s on-screen family has really grown. And if these latest rumors are correct, the upcoming movie will have plenty of space for la familia to jump into the action.

According to Cinemarx,  a Romanian movie listings site (so, grain of salt and all that), “The Fate Of The Furious” will have audiences buckled in for 160 minutes, making it the longest entry in the series.

‘Hellboy 3’ Is Dead Forever

13 hours ago

Hellboy 3” is one of those long discussed projects that people seemed more interested to talk about happening, than actually wanting to see happen. Aside from devoted Guillermo del Toro fans and Ron Perlman, I’m not sure the world was waiting with bated breath for the third installment in the series, but if you were, there’s some bad news today.

Del Toro hit Twitter this morning to declare that, now and forever, “Hellboy 3” is dead (and suggests that it’s pointless to keep asking him about it):

Hellboy 3 Sorry to report: Spoke w all parties.

‘Freak Show’ With Alex Lawther, Abigail Breslin & Bette Midler Is A Well-Intentioned Mess [Berlin Review]

14 hours ago

If sensitive intentions were all that counted, the debut directorial narrative feature from Trudie Styler, prolific producer, occasional actress and Sting‘s wife, might be a masterpiece — or at least an amiable John Hughes-esque teen fable about overcoming bullying and Being True To Yourself. But despite being based on the novel of the same name by James St. James, and undoubtedly driven by the best of motives, “Freak Show” is haphazardly thrown together, full of unexplained contrivances and characters so pliably bendy to the whims of the contorted yet formulaic narrative that they might as well be made of pipe cleaners.

Meet The Crew From ‘Alien: Covenant’ In New Image

15 hours ago

Alien: Covenant” is highly anticipated, but it’s safe to say there are still some reservations. Ridley Scott‘s picture, visually, looks as stunning as ever, but the first red-band trailer, complete with a sex scene in the shower that ends in blood, was pretty cornball at times. Here’s hoping that’s just marketing and not indicative of the final product.

We’ll likely find out tomorrow as 20th Century Fox will be launching a new promo for the film during the next episode of “Legion.” So until then, here’s another look at the crew of ‘Covenant’ and the official synopsis:

Emma Watson Sings In First Clip From ‘Beauty And The Beast’

15 hours ago

The story goes that Emma Watson was courted to star in “La La Land” (along with Miles Teller), but wound up being dropped after making “crazy demands,” and instead pivoted towards Disney‘s “Beauty And Beast.” No matter how much truth versus legend is in that tale, Watson is getting her chance to break out into song on the big screen, and Disney isn’t holding anything back, with the first clip from the film showing the actress doing her thing.

‘Logan’ Post-Credits Scene Confirmed, Hugh Jackman Rules Out Deadpool/Wolverine Movie

20 February 2017 3:51 PM, PST

Logan” is wonderfully different. A movie that operates more like a drama or western that anything involving people with special powers, it’s arguably a new classic in the genre (read our review), and pushes the boundaries what the can be done with the superhero movie. James Mangold doesn’t follow any rulebook from Marvel or DC Films….except in one department….

Rumors started surfacing over the past few days that 20th Century Fox had quietly added a few more minutes of additional runtime to “Logan,” prompting speculation that post-credits sting was being added.

With One Day Of Voting To Go: Can Anyone Slow Down The ‘La La Land’ Oscar Train?

20 February 2017 3:27 PM, PST

There’s a little over 24 hours left for Academy members to submit their final votes for the 89th Academy Awards. Frankly, though, most members have already voted and a small percentage (likely a very small percentage) are waiting until the last minute. In many ways what’s done is done even though the grumbling about “La La Land” seems to have reached something of a crescendo and perhaps weeks too late.

At this point there’s nothing stopping Damien Chazelle’s hit movie musical from taking Hollywood’s most prized possession, Best Picture.

Where To Watch All The 2017 Oscar Nominees

20 February 2017 12:18 PM, PST

We’re less than a week away from the big show. On February 26, first-time host Jimmy Kimmel will lead us into another night of surprises, upsets, disappointment, elation, fancy suits, lovely dresses, golden statues, cheers and jeers. We can practically smell the microwave cooked popcorn and homemade chili dip as we speak. The Oscars are nothing without ferocious opinions, hard-wrought cynicism and reformed faith in the (supposedly) “dying” art of cinema.
