When you think of David Fincher.s 1999 film Fight Club, a number of words may come to mind: macho, violent, soap. Chances are, however, when you think of the Brad Pitt and Edward Norton-starring flick, the first description you think of is not adorable. Well, that may very well change after you watch this new video: G-Rated Fight Club. This video comes from folks over at Fine Brothers Entertainment, and if you ever ventured to imagine an animated, elementary school version of Fight Club, you know, without the sex, swearing, violence, and general mayhem, this is probably pretty much what it would look like. And it.s a lot of goddamn fun. Edward Norton.s Narrator or Jack or whatever you want to call him, is transported from the mundane life of a cubicle drone to the mundane life of a suburban 4th grader. While in a Cootie support group, »

Following the tragic news of the shootings in Virginia, the USA Network has decided to delay the season finale of Mr. Robot, which was supposed to air last night. This is due to similarities between the episode’s story and real-life events.
USA released this statement:
“The previously filmed season finale of ‘Mr. Robot’ contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia. Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time.”
Last week’s episode was repeated last night in lieu of the finale, which will instead be screened next week, on Wednesday the 2nd of September.

The following post contains spoilers up through the ninth episode of Mr. Robot.The truthers were right! The penultimate episode of USA's hit summer show threw another grenade into the plot, revealing that Elliot Alderson, played by Rami Malek, and Mr. Robot, played by Christian Slater, were indeed the same person. Mr. Robot is just like Fight Club. We had harbored suspicions for a while, and for good reason: It was right there in front of us all along. Here's our video supercut of the instances that prove we should always listen to the voices in our heads. Now, about that "moon landing" »

In the opening minutes of the pilot for USA’s Mr. Robot, superhacker Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) meets with the shifty proprietor of a chain of coffeeshops. Over the course of their conversation, Elliot reveals the flaws in his cybersecurity—flaws that enabled Elliot to uncover this fellow’s immense cache of child pornography. The topic shifts: Who is Elliot? What does he want? Money? Before long, though, Elliot heads out and the cops storm in to mete out justice. That, it would seem, will be the blueprint for Mr. Robot: the story of yet another maladjusted genius with One Weird Trick for solving crimes while disregarding the rules, man. He’ll track down hidden bad guys, overcoming his obvious social awkwardness and seemingly timid nature, and expose them to the world with the help of cutting-edge, buzzword-heavy technological innovation. After all, this is USA, the home of Burn Notice, »

While it shouldn’t be a surprise that women enjoy having sex and embracing their sexuality, the true nature of female arousal remains a fairly mysterious thing. There’s a long-held fallacy that women don’t like porn as a rule, for instance, wiping out one source of the excites that is incredibly easy access when the question of arousal comes up. We do, by the way, we just don’t feel the need to tell everyone about it.
But that doesn’t mean that women don’t get turned on by films. It’s just that it might well surprise you to hear which ones do it.
Now whilst men probably wouldn’t even consider suggesting these film titles to your love interest – because they’re either typically considered “Ones For The Boys” (seriously, that still happens) or are written off entirely as not for male viewers »

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture: Movie Takedown of the Day: Okay, it's not so much a takedown this time, but Honest Trailers does make a few jokes at the expense of Mad Max: Fury Road while also being totally truthful about its awesomeness: Movie Redo of the Day: People of all ages should be able to enjoy Fight Club. Now your kids can, too, with this G-rated animated version: Hollywood Satire of the Day: Funny or Die shows us the real reason that women don't direct more action movies, starring Catherine Hardwicke, Nicole Holofcener and other great filmmakers (via Film School Rejects): Vintage Image of the Day: Toshiro Mifune and Machiko Kyo in Rashomon.

American Ultra aims to mix violence, absurdity, humor, and romance. It achieves this goal...poorly. Somewhat surprising, since stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart had such great chemistry in Adventureland. Unfortunately, a pedantic script from Max Landis (Chronicle) and maudlin direction by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) doesn't recreate that magic. American Ultra had promise. A comedic take on the CIA's infamous Mk Ultra program could have been great. We'll have to wait for a better film, because American Ultra falls woefully short.
Jesse Eisenberg stars as slacker stoner Mike Howell. He and his hippie girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart); live a relatively carefree existence in a small Virginia town. They smoke weed, work menial jobs, and are madly in love. Mike suffers from overwhelming panic attacks every time he tries to leave town. His hope of proposing to Phoebe in Hawaii ends disastrously when he can't even get on the plane. »
In this brief introduction to a screening of Fight Club at Locarno, Edward Norton recalls that the film premiered to boos at the Venice Film Festival in 1999, a far cry from its assured cult status at this point. He then goes on to compare the film’s initially poor reception to what it must’ve been like to watch Rossellini’s Rome, Open City one year after the end of World War II, as something too raw and recent to process. The comparison’s probably ill-advised, but there you go. »

As Saint Jerome noted so wisely, "Early impressions are hard to eradicate from the mind. When once wool has been dyed purple, who can restore it to its previous whiteness?"
Accordingly, anyone who's been bombarded with the TV ads for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four shouldn't be chastised for sprinting away from any multiplex screening of this latest Marvel concoction. Those trailers showcase a film lacking in verbal and visual wit, actors seemingly bereft of sparkle, and disfigured creatures that wouldn't appear out of place in a Toho production of the 1950s (e.g. Half Human in 1958; Rodan in 1957). While none of those early impressions are that wide off the mark, the first 45 minutes or so of this effort, nonetheless, are promising.
Before we go down that path, let's just note for those familiar with Trank's debut feature, the pretty terrific Chronicle (2012), Fantastic Four will seem like a bloated, less imaginative revamp in comparison. »

A few years ago Edward Norton was sitting on a stoop in New York listening to Bruce Springsteen. Actually listening to Bruce Springsteen: the singer was sitting on the step next to Norton giving the actor some relationship advice. At the time Norton had already established himself as one of the world’s leading actors, following up his Oscar-nominated debut in Primal Fear with turns in American History X and The People vs. Larry Flynt, and one of the all-time great performances in Fight Club. »
The Originals has always been a show about family, and it was very much all about the Mikaelson family in Season 2 of the CW vampire drama, with Esther, Mikael, Kol, and Finn returning, Freya being introduced, and the siblings’ Aunt Dahlia serving as the big bad. And while family will always be a major theme in The Originals, it will be explored in a little bit of a different way in the show’s upcoming third season, as the sired vampires of the originals (in many ways, the “children” of Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah) arrive in New Orleans to seek power and vengeance, something that may force Elijah and Klaus to put aside their differences again and fight together. One ally that Klaus and Elijah will probably need to fend off any new major threats arriving in New Orleans is Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who, as Davis told us when we… »

The Dctv universe over at The CW is definitely expanding. Between Arrow, The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow there are 30+ (and counting) superheroes operating in some form or fashion on The CW. It seems like a no-brainer that Supergirl would want to benefit from such a developed TV universe but CBS seems hesitant. However, a possible indication that they're warming up to the idea was the reveal at yesterday's TCA panel that the shows will have "crossover promotions". By promotions, perhaps they mean that Supergirl could appear in the Super Hero Fight Club promotions should The CW choose to do that again for the new season? We'll have to wait and see but the majority of the fanbase for all these shows definitely want to see them crossover. Again, when Supergirl was first announced showrunner Greg Berlanti was the first to comment that the Arrow, Flash and Supergirl could »
Mutants have always fought mutants in the X-Men comics and films, whether as a way to improve their stills, and therefore their chances for survival, or out of deep ideological disagreements. Mutants will definitely be pitted against one another in the film X-Men: Apocalypse, thanks to the efforts of the first mutant, Apocalypse, to gather […]

The fight between Apocalypse and the X-Men is going to be a massive conflict next year, but there will also be smaller scale clashes interspersed throughout X-Men: Apocalypse. For one of the mutants, despite his young age, he’ll find himself in brutal ring of combat. Fortunately, his powers should give him an edge against the competition. Check it out. Angel Enters Fight Club in this Behind the Scenes image from X-Men: Apocalypse pic.twitter.com/jSGO1ldZuM — X-Men: Apocalypse (@XApocalypse2016) August 10, 2015 Originally teased in concept art, the official X-Men: Apocalypse Twitter account posted this photo of a fighting ring scene being filmed. On the left monitor you see Warren Worthington III, a.k.a. Angel (played by Ben Hardy) appearing to yell. It’s hard to make out on the right monitor whether that’s the ring’s announcer/Mc or Angel holding »
This is probably the best video you will see all day. And there is simply no way Marvel and Sony can top the sheer visceral thrill of watching a real man dressed as Spider-Man fighting someone on the streets of New York City in the Heart of Times Square. I don't care how good the 2017 reboot proves to be. This will be better, and thanks to Geoff Goldberg, we get to see this early, and for free. Hurry up and watch it right now!
Perhaps Marvel and Sony cast Tom Holland a few weeks too soon. As this guy dressed as Spidey has the sidewalk level moves we want to see in a Fight Club-style remake of the franchise. The New York Post first ran the story, offering a little bit of background on what we're seeing in what is sure to become the viral video of the week. »
Fantastic Four is a film with problems - but that doesn't mean the Hollywood system should chew up and spit out its director.
Even those who enjoyed the new reboot of Fantastic Four would more than likely agree that all wasn't well with the film. Its last act in particular has the hallmarks of a compromised committee-driven reshoot, and in the absence of firm information on just what happened behind the scenes - a story that we may not find out for some time to come - the usual internet game of filling in the blanks is well underway.
The known knowns: reviews have been less than enthusiastic. Box office projections have been revised downwards. Everything else? It's a little trickier to pinpoint thus far.
Fresh off a third Oscar nomination and a healthy haul of critics’ gongs for Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Birdman,” Edward Norton isn’t so prize-hungry as to covet career honors like the Excellence Award presented to him Wednesday night at the Locarno Film Festival. “I tend to look at these things just as very nice compliments,” he says, his tone almost diffident, before passing the credit back to the festival itself, now in its 68th edition. “In its first year, Locarno showed Rossellini’s ‘Rome, Open City,’ and that’s still such a radical film. It’s flattering to be connected to that tradition of hosting and promoting cinema, even in a small way.”
Mike Shiner, the brilliant egomaniac thespian Norton played in Inarritu’s film, mightn’t have been so magnanimous. If there was a purported hint of self-parody to the performance, Norton’s persona — onscreen or off — has »

Locarno Film Festival president Marco Solari has hit out claims that festival sponsors’ invitations to more than 80 Swiss politicians could be construed as corruption or trying to curry influence.
Speaking on the Swiss French-language radio station Rts, Solari declared that it was “absolutely ridiculous” to suggest that the parliamentarians would let themselves be influenced or corrupted by hospitality offered by such sponsors as Swisscom, La Poste or Swiss Railways at the festival.
“It is an insult to the dignity and intelligence of the parliamentarians,” he declared.
He was reacting to an report on Rts about how corporate sponsors wine and dine Swiss politicians and, in many cases, pick up the tab for overnight stays at such summer events as Le Paléo Festival de Nyon, the Montreux Jazz Festival as well as the Locarno Film Festival.
Solari argued that the hospitality offered by sponsors enabled figures from the worlds of business, culture as well »
