This post is sponsored by Target. Earlier this week, after finding out that I was working on an article that involved me playing with a bunch of toys from Avengers: Age of Ultron from Target, a friend forwarded me a social media post from someone in their feed. This person, no doubt a mom, was trying to warn other parents that taking one’s children into a Target store would be dangerous, as every aisle was plastered with Avengers branding. My response to this: “Awesome. I’ll be right back, I need to run to the store.” For as long as I can remember, having the toy to go along with the movie has been standard operating procedure. I remember falling asleep next to a plush E.T. doll, waking up and playing with my Ghostbusters firehouse play-set (Egon was always the cool one when I was in control) or building LEGOs to look as close to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles »

There’s a perceived piece of wisdom that a film gets made three times. The first time is when the script is written, the next is during filming where it evolves and changes and the final, most crucial stage, is editing. Here is where it sinks or swims. A scene that fell flat while filming can suddenly come to life with some creative edits, or a subplot that felt unnecessary can become essential.
It’s also at this point that scenes will get trimmed or removed completely, regardless of quality. It could be a great scene on its own, but in the final product it just slows the story down. Maybe the scene repeats information gained elsewhere, or maybe the acting sucks. Whatever the reason, this happens on every film.
But deleted scenes always hold a strange kind of appeal. They can provide a fascinating glimpse into »

Jurassic World has taken a few mild knocks, from scientists criticizing the accuracy of the dinosaurs, to a writing-credit dispute that was only settled at the start of April, which came shortly after Joss Whedon had accused a clip of the film of being sexist. But don’t fret, all you dino-die-hards out there, because Steven Spielberg has swung in to give Jurassic World his seal of approval, and he’s even compared the film to his original blockbuster. Steven Spielberg, obviously, directed 1993’s Jurassic Park and its 1997 follow-up The Lost World: Jurassic Park. During a segment for Entertainment Tonight (via Cbm) Spielberg waxed lyrical about Colin Trevorrow’s fourth installment to the franchise, declaring: To see Jurassic World come to life is almost like seeing Jurassic Park come true. I’d say that Colin Trevorrow would be pretty pleased with that comparison. And while »

Making a follow up to a massive blockbuster has to be stressful. You want to capture what people loved about the first film, but not just rehash what came before.

Talking to Entertainment Tonight Online, Gunn revealed that, of all the things about developing Guardians of the Galaxy 2 that could be keeping him up nights, it.s the soundtrack that gives him the most pause.

Filmmaker James Gunn admits that in regards to the upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy" sequel, it's not shooting the actual film that worries him. Rather, it's coming up with the film's soundtrack - the "Awesome Mix, Volume Two"
Gunn tells Entertainment Tonight: "Originally people kept asking me, 'Don't you feel a lot of pressure to do the second movie?’ and I didn't in general, because we had our hands tied behind our back on the first one by having to introduce all those characters, so it seems like doing the second movie is actually easier in that respect. I did feel a little pressure for the soundtrack because so many people loved it and we went platinum and all that other stuff."
He then goes on to say: "the soundtrack in the second one is better. I feel like it's better, so I'm excited about it." He sadly did »

A number of 1970s classics certainly played a major role in the love for Marvel's space epic movie Guardians of the Galaxy, and the "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" soundtrack had everyone hooked on a feeling given it was only the second album of 2014 to go platinum. So, with the sequel set to kick-off summer 2017, does writer-director James Gunn plan to top that with "Awesome Mix Vol. 2"? When Entertainment Tonight spoke James Gunn at Avengers: Age of Ultron red carpet premiere, the filmmaker admitted to feeling pressure about the Guardians 2 soundtrack. "Originally, people kept asking me 'Don't you feel a lot of pressure to do the second movie,' and I didn't in general because we had our hands tied behind our back on the first one. But I had to introduce all those characters so it seems like doing the sequel is actually easier in that respect. But I did feel »
When Entertainment Tonight caught up with David Dastmalchian at the Hollywood premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier this week, the actor best known to the Cbm community as one of the Joker's henchmen in The Dark Knight had discussed his transition from DC to Marvel in the Ant-Man adaptation. "That's like a badge of honor for me," he said. "I'm a comic book nut, I have been my whole life, so to have worked in both universes is pretty cool. That was one of the first things that one of the [Marvel] producers said: 'One of those guys who has done both world'" When asked who would win in a fight between Ant-Man and Batman, David Destmalchian said without any hesitation: "Oh Ant-Man would totally kick Batman's ass." Considering the actor took a beating from Christian Bale's Caped Crusader in The Dark Knight, could Destmalchian's response indicate that he »

The couple separated last year but recently sparked rumours they had reunited, and though the 31-year-old model will always regard the 27-year-old rapper - with who she has two-year-old son Sebastian - as her ''family'', she is unsure what the future holds for them.

Evans and Collins have been rumored to be dating since last month when they were spotted at dinner together. Evans previously dated Minka Kelly and Collins was once linked with Zac Efron. He didn’t say no, but he didn’t say yes, which means you still have a chance.
