A trailer has arrived online for director Ilyssa Goodman’s upcoming teen comedy The Standoff which stars Olivia Holt, Ryan McCartan, Alex Wolff and Audry Whitby; check it out below after the official synopsis…
Big Jim’s Auto Depot there’s only one rule. The last man – or woman – standing wins. Eight teens enter, one teen leaves. Actually, all eight teens leave, but only one leaves with the ride of their dreams. To reach that dream, they’re going through a nightmare. Keep your hand on the car. That sounds simple enough, but two days of sleep deprivation and fierce competition can make things awfully hard.
Amy (Olivia Holt) and Farrell (Ryan McCartan) are two local teens who find themselves up against the toughest field of competitors to ever stand around a car lot. So who’s it going to be? Sophie (McKaley Miller), the social media sensation? Lala (Audrey Whitby), the science queen? »

” You’re freaks! I’m a man! The last man!”
The Last Man On Earth starring St. Louis’ own Vincent Price screens Thursday July 7th at 7:00pm at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, Mo 63143). There will be Vincent Price Trivia with prizes!
Even though Richard Matheson’s novel I Am Legend has been filmed three times (officially), only one of the film versions worked with a script by Matheson himself (though billed as -‘Logan Swanson’). Originally a Hammer Film property (how great would that have been?), Matheson’s script was eventually sold to Lippert Productions and made cheaply in Italy with an Italian cast and crew, as The Last Man On Earth (1964). For its bankable American star, Vincent Price was cast as the lead. Price was at the peak of his popularity from a series of brilliant Edgar Allan Poe adaptations directed by Roger Corman (the producers wisely »

William Hurt, in his screen debut, experiments with that nostalgic 80s pastime, sensory deprivation, which culminates in biological devolution. Writer Paddy Chayefsky, credited onscreen as Sidney Aaron despite writing the novel his screenplay was based on, disowned Ken Russell’s wacko hallucinatory approach, which plays more like a remake of Return of the Ape Man. Original director Arthur Penn and fx maven John Dyksytra also resigned after disputes with Chayefsky, whose last picture this was. Darren Aronofsky revisited this territory in The Fountain, to equally mixed results.

The Division is turning into an interesting beast, especially for solo players like me. There are so many articles that say it is not designed for single-players alone and that at level 30 it will hit you hard, but at level 26 I’m holding up hope that I can survive it. Why am I sticking with The Division solo play? Probably because the game itself is so good.
When I hit level 30, I may change my mind and give into the fact that the game has become impossible for me. Maybe I’ll have to find some people who want to play with me in the game and finally give in to having to be part of an actual group. Until then though I walk the street alone, and even have some fun in the Dark Zone sometimes too.
One of the reasons I probably like The Division solo play is »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at Batman movies that were planned but never shot…
If you are over 30, by the end of this month you will have seen five actors play Batman on the big screen. That might seem like a lot, but it’s entirely possible that there could have been even more Batman movies down the years.
It appears like there has never been a time when a Batman film was not in some stage of development hell. After the 60s TV series spawned a film, the next attempt to get Batman on the big screen was Batman in Outer Space in the late 70s, probably designed to cash in on the success of Star Wars (similarly, the producers of James Bond made Moonraker instead of For Your Eyes Only in 1979 to ride on the coat tails of Han and Luke).
Before Tim Burton revived the series in 1989, various writers, »

Every show from Rectify to The Walking Dead features an episode where a character isolates themselves from the main story line, learning important lessons from guest stars, one-off roles reserved for the best of America’s character actors. What’s surprising about “Pitch Black, The Last Man on Earth‘s first episode of the spring, is not its position as one of those aforementioned ‘reverse bottle’ episodes – it’s how it centers itself around Mike Miller, leaving both Phils and the rest of the Tucson gang in the dark for the entirety of the episode. Doing so sets the back half of The Last Man‘s second season on an exciting,
The Last Man on Earth returns with a surprisingly somber episode »

After last week's brief foray into the realm of romance, "The Walking Dead" returned to its roots tonight with the introduction of some new people, some new threats, and some new plans for ass-kicking, courtesy of Rick Grimes and co. For those keeping track at home, that makes three episodes in a row now that "Twd" has been firing on all cylinders. Can our survivors – and more importantly, the showrunners – keep up this pace for the rest of this back eight?
All signs are pointing to yes, what with tonight's introduction of the Hilltop community and some more revelations about mysterious big bad Negan, and his people, the Saviors. The episode's title, "Knots Untie," refers to Jesus's uncanny ability to escape any restraint that binds him, though the installment spends most of its time weaving together a complex backstory for the Hilltoppers, who look to our main crew to hold »

For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $285.6 million domestically and $266.4 million internationally for a global total of $552.1 million. Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. Deadpool had no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row, taking in $31.5 million.
While Deadpool has had success beyond most analysts' expectations, its second weekend drop of 57.4% could mean that it may not have as much staying power in theaters. For example, throughout Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 10-week run in theaters, they have only posted a decrease of more than 50% once, and they have consistently managed to drop somewhere in the 30% range almost every weekend, »
For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $236.8 million domestically and $256.2 million internationally for a global total of $493 million, and it will likely cross the $500 million milestone sometime this week. Heading into its third frame in theaters, Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. If the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com are accurate, Deadpool should have no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row.

Mma are arguably the toughest athletes on the planet. In a sport where the money hasn’t come near to scraping the pay of boxers or footballers, why do they continue to fight? The answer is simple; they love competing and for most of them it is all they know.
Continuing beyond your prime in a sport like basketball or soccer doesn’t come with many adverse affects besides you not performing at your best, but it’s a different story in combat sports. The price you pay is your health and the quality of your life. But such is the irresistible draw of competing that even when you’re past your athletic prime and others can see it, it’s possible for the fighter to miss the revelation.
After years of steeling themselves for battle and building their arrogance, they are always, inevitably, the last to doubt themselves. »

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, »
