Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 Review: The Son Also Rises

3 hours ago | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

I confess: I had a really, really hard time deciding what grade to give Grimm Season 6 Episode 8 because I was just too busy laughing my head off.

It was just so difficult to take "The Son Also Rises" with any amount of seriousness, particularly as a person with a degree in English and a modicum of scientific understanding.

In one of the most blatant riffs on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein I have ever seen, Grimm had pretty much everything except for villagers wielding torches and pitchforks!

The whole thing was started by the un-subtley named Victor Shelley got into a car accident with his son, killing (not mostly killing, or nearly killing, but actually killing!) said son.

In a feat of astonishing scientific brilliance (otherwise known as magic), Dr. Shelley and his colleagues actually managed to resurrect the son! They literally brought him back from the dead!

J.J. Abrams On Han Solo Script: “It’s Amazing”

10 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

J.J. Abrams has gotten a look at the script for the Han Solo spinoff, which just entered production, and he sounds pretty excited about it. Speaking with Fox News, here’s what he shared:

“I can tell you it is an amazing script and the cast is obviously extraordinary. I think it is a thrill to be a part of something that meant so much to me as a kid and to be part of allowing it to mean so much for kids now. It is fun to see it live on in various forms and ways even five years ago I would have never imagined it would have continued and knowing what is coming up is even more exciting,”

Now, it’s tempting to think, “well, he would say that, wouldn’t he?” But then the script is written by Jon and Lawrence Kasdan, the latter having penned The Empire Strikes Back »

Box Office: Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’ to Bring in Sizable $28 Million on Opening Weekend

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller “Get Out” is dominating the box office with an opening weekend of as much as $28 million at 2,773 North American locations, early estimates indicated Friday.

Get Out,” which opened with an impressive $1.8 million at 2,240 sites on Thursday night, will finish far ahead the closest contender, Warner Bros.’ third weekend of “The Lego Batman Movie” with about $18 million.

The second weekend of the historical saga “The Great Wall,” which carries a $150 million price tag, is dropping sharply from its $21 million opening over the four-day Presidents Day weekend, and will finish with about $8 million. Matt Damon stars in “Wall,” financed by Legendary and several Chinese partners. The film grossed over $170 million in China

Lionsgate Premiere’s “Rock Dog” will open with about $5 million at 2,077 sites, while Open Road’s actioner “Collide” is likely to finish with a diminutive $2 million at 2,045 sites.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Hits April 4th Loaded With Extras

13 hours ago | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Though there were somewhat mixed reviews, audiences seemed to love the Star Wars franchise’s first spin-off film, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story certainly helped move momentum going into next December’s release of Star Wars VIII. Coinciding with recent news about the Han Solo film, the release of the home versions of the Felicity Jones vehicle has now hit.

The Blu-Ray release will hit stores on April 4th, loaded with bonus features, though there will apparently be some “by outlet” differences in the list of bonuses. Also, as is becoming the norm, those looking for it on Digital HD get a bit of a head start, with the film hitting

As you might expect, the release will be loaded with extras, including some that are really going to make fans happy. Especially interesting are deeper looks at K-2So, Baze & Chirrut, and The Empire itself.

J.J. Abrams Praises Han Solo Script and Cast

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While J.J. Abrams isn't directing any of the upcoming Star Wars movies, he will still be involved as a producer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and, presumably, on Star Wars: Episode IX. The filmmaker wasn't listed as a producer on the Star Wars spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it is unclear if he is producing the Han Solo spin-off that just started shooting. But the filmmaker and producer revealed in a recent interview that he's excited for the future of the franchise. Here's what he had to say about the script for the Han Solo spin-off.

"I can tell you it is an amazing script and the cast is obviously extraordinary."

Production started just a few days ago on Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson as Han Solo's mentor Garris Shrike, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo »

Rumors Surface (Again) That The Original Cuts Of ‘Star Wars’ May Finally Be Re-Released

14 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Star Wars” fans have plenty of traditions, but perhaps one of the most enduring is the constant rumor mill and speculation that the theatrical cuts of the original trilogy will finally get an official high-definition release. For decades, fans have mostly had to content themselves with the Special Edition versions, which feature added CGI and scenes, to little benefit, not to mention that whole “Han Shot First” controversy. If you’ve wanted the movies close to what they were when they first opened in cinemas, the terrific-looking and very unofficial Despecialized Editions (a preservation effort of sorts by one very ridiculously devoted fan) is quite easy to find, and it’s telling that Lucasfilm and Disney haven’t brought the legal hammer down on those copies.

10 Things We Want To See From Star Wars: The Last Jedi

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi may very well be 2017’s most highly anticipated movie, and it’s not exactly hard to see why. Continuing the story which kicked off in 2015’s $2 billion blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rian Johnson is at the helm for this next chapter and a terrific cast has been assembled thanks to new and returning faces.

With a first look at the film expected to be with us in time for Star Wars Celebration in April, the curtain will hopefully be pulled back on The Last Jedi in just a couple of months from now. Given Disney’s extreme secrecy regarding the project though, we still really have no idea what we’re going to get from it.

We do, however, have a long list of things we want to see. Star Wars: The Force Awakens left fans with a lot of unanswered questions, »

The oldest child of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick recently received a bedroom makeover that he and his mom created based on his current obsession.

Is The Young Han Solo's Hair On Point For The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Movie

16 hours ago | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

Production for the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story is underway in London, and I couldn't help but notice in the cast picture released by Lucasfilm and Disney that the actor Alden Ehrenreich seems to be hair ready to portray the space pirate. While the physical resemblance isn't obvious, Alden captures the mischievous spirit of Han Solo, but more importantly his  coif seems to be point.  Let's compare the young Han Solo in the first official Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story cast photo with Harrison Ford's original scoundrel.

You may recall that I’ve mentioned that there are 2 movie franchises that will never die with regard to new things popping up no matter how much time goes in between movies.  The first is an active franchise and that would be Star Wars.  The second is Harry Potter which, while we may never see a movie again, you can count on something new popping up about Harry Potter on the internet every single day.

Exclusive: Nicholas Hoult on his X-Men future & Felicity Jones reflects on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

21 hours ago | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

This week in the Us action-thriller Collide is released in cinemas, and while the film doesn’t arrive until May in the UK, we were fortunate enough to sit down with stars Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones recently and, as you may have expected, we had to ask them about X-Men and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The future of the X-Men franchise has been the talk of Hollywood over recent weeks – with last summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse not quite as successful at the box office and the final High Jackman/Wolverine film, Logan, hitting cinemas on February 28th, attention has turned to what will be coming next.

Rumours of a new X-Men film, reportedly entitled Supernova, have surfaced and when we spoke to Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) at the BAFTAs earlier this month, she confirmed that she is shooting the new film later this year. »

An Unaltered Version Of The Original Star Wars Trilogy May Be Released This Year

23 February 2017 5:08 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since George Lucas sold the Star Wars franchise to Disney, fans have been hoping that we might see the original, unaltered trilogy re-released in some form. As you surely know, over the years, Lucas continued to tinker with the movies, often upsetting many with the changes he made. Some of those alterations were minor (Ewoks suddenly being able to blink), while others were major enough to cause serious backlash (Han shooting first) or ridicule (Darth Vader’s “Noooo!” as he dispatches of The Emperor).

Well, according to a new report, we could see the original Star Wars movies in their unaltered form released at some point in 2017 to celebrate the franchise’s 40th anniversary. These will be the original edits of the 1977, 1980, and 1983 cuts of the first Star Wars trilogy, meaning that fans can finally watch A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as »

Profits Drop 13% as IMAX China Suffers Box Office Headwinds

23 February 2017 4:46 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a year of highs and lows, IMAX China suffered a drop in profits, but booked a record number of orders for new screens.

The company, which is controlled by IMAX Corp. but has a separate Hong Kong Share listing, reported adjusted profits of $37.6 million. That was down 13% compared with 2015. Group revenues were up by 7% at $119 million, despite a 7% depreciation of the Chinese currency, compared with the U.S. dollar.

In a statement the company pointed to decreased box office and to an increase in the number of revenue sharing theaters it opened. These come with greater long term revenue than sites which are sold or leased, but higher initial costs.

At the end of 2016, IMAX China operated 407 commercial screens in the Greater China region, compared with 290 at the end of 2015.

Box office revenue at IMAX theaters slipped from $312 million in 2015 to $295 million in 2016. Per screen box office dropped from $1.34 million to $932,000. (In comparison, »
