Between his time as an Oscar-winning special effects artist on Raiders of the Lost Ark and helming Captain America: The First Avenger, Joe Johnston worked on another action adventure release set during World War II featuring a hero fighting Nazi villains. That movie, The Rocketeer, wasn't nearly as successful as the other two, but it has developed a cult following. So, instead of merely remaking that 1991 graphic novel adaptation, as was previously the idea, Disney is actually planning a sequel. The catch is, according to The Hollywood Reporter, we won't be seeing Billy Campbell resume his role as the titular flying hero. The new movie will be set six years later and have a Cold War backdrop. The Rocketeer we saw in the original, Cliff Secord, is...

If you're like me, when you heard the name Joe Johnston was attached to Captain America: The First Avenger, you likely had a warm feeling of familiarity fill your gut. That film, after all, was being pegged as an adventure film during WWII -- a territory Johnston had visited before when he directed 1991's The Rocketeer. The Rocketeer carried all the classic "Tomorrowland"-esque visions of the future technology and spirit of high adventure that made it an irresistible film for me as a kid.
For those too young to remember (or those who skipped the film), it followed the character Cliff Secord who discovered a rocket pack, and becomes mixed up in a big scheme involving Nazis, the mob, Howard Hughes, and the FBI.

It was revealed over San Diego Comic Con that classic villain The Vulture (who may be played by Michael Keaton) would be the antagonist for Spider-Man: Homecoming – but it looks like this won’t be a ‘one-and-done’ affair. To the surprise of no one, talk of possible sequels for this third Spider-Man reboot are taking place and Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has said the films could follow a similar pattern to Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter.
“Should we be able to make more after that? Sure,” he told Collider. “This is sophomore year, is the next one junior year? Is the next one senior year? Is there a summer break between each of those? I don’t know what, but it was sort of how do we do a journey for Peter not dissimilar for what the students of Hogwarts would go through each of their years, which was one »

Preacher is one of my favorite series currently running on TV and it's going to be released on Blu-ray and DVD October 4.
The first season takes a while to get going, mostly because of character development but it really gets going. Lots of gore and is damned hilarious in spots. Very interesting characters as well. Can't wait for season 2. Read more about the upcoming release below.
From the Press Release
Based on the popular 1990s cult comic book series of the same name, the critically-acclaimed Preacher: Season One arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD October 4 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The darkly comedic, hard-hitting, supernatural thrill-ride follows Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper, TV’s “Agent Carter,” Captain America: The First Avenger) who, after a supernatural event at his church, is thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between. »
The San Diego Comic Con has wrapped up and boy did they give us some goodies to look forward to at the movie theater in the next couple years. The trailers to Wonder Woman, Justice League, And Doctor Strange were mind blowing. The trailers to the Netflix shows from Marvel, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders were great as well.
One bit Marvel ended up closing their presentation with was the announcement of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. Due in theaters in 2019, this will be the first female starring movie Marvel has put out (despite having the recipe for an amazing movie with Scarlett Johannsen as Black Widow but that’s another story.) With this news, I thought I would dive into the brilliant 2012 comic from Kelly Sue DeConnick that debuted Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel (she’d previously been Ms. Marvel.)
This is the perfect starting on point »

We all love movie trailers. Some of us get to the theater early so we can catch all the trailers. We review trailers. Studios even make trailers for trailers. (And we review those, too.) Trailers get people excited. That’s their job, if they’re done correctly. Comic-Con has unveiled a bunch of trailers over the past few days. Cinelinx is taking a second look at seven trailers for some of the most anticipated upcoming movies.
Justice League: What’s immediately obvious from the trailer is that the tone of this film will be very different from the earlier Snyderverse films. When the WB opened the set to critics several weeks back, everyone present said that they were encouraged by the humorous scenes being filmed featuring the Flash. This trailer seems to back up those claims, focusing on the interactions of the team members. The thread of the trailer »

The Marvel Studios Comic-Con panel confirmed that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be going up against The Vulture in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and while we don’t yet know who’ll be playing the villain (although Michael Keaton is surely the strong favourite), we have got a piece of concept art giving us our first look at the character…

Never-before-seen footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming was screened to the crowd attending the Marvel Studios San Diego Comic-Con panel in Hall H, and, as has been assumed for weeks, it reportedly confirms that The Vulture will indeed be one of the film’s villains.

Picture this: It's the year 2011, and Chris Evans is not an international superstar and widely agreed-upon hunk of the moment, but a kind-of-known actor and mildly-agreed-upon hunk. We speak, of course, of that mythical time before his very first Captain America. That original installment—or, to be more specific, the reboot—Captain America: The First Avenger premiered exactly five years ago today. And while that may not seem like a whole lot of time (because it isn't a whole lot of time), so much has changed for Chris Evans. And conversely, Chris Evans has changed a whole lot in the eyes of the world. Back when he first readied himself to don the blue-and-white suit, »

This year sees Captain America reach the 75 years milestone, and to celebrate Marvel has commissioned an awesome 13 foot bronze statue based on the McU version of the Star Spangled Avenger, complete with the quote “I’m just a kid of Brooklyn” from Captain America: The First Avenger (in the original Joe Kirby and Joe Simon comic Steve Rogers was born on the Lower East Side). Entertainment Weekly has our first look at the special anniversary gift, which will be unveiled at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, where fans can take their picture with it and buy their own miniature replicas. After making its debut at geek mecca, bronze Cap will travel East across the country before settling down for a short time in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. In September, it will move to the borough’s Barclay’s Centre, then heading to Sunset Park in October. »

It seems as though we’ve been talking about Suicide Squad for a very long time, and for good reason. Having DC supervillains forcibly banded together to work for the government under threat of death by explosive implant is a brilliant concept. In the source material, the original Suicide Squad first appeared in The Brave And The Bold #25 in 1959, and has popped up in various media numerous times over the years.
Now, however, the third film in the burgeoning DC Extended Universe is among the most highly anticipated of the year – thanks to early images of the cast and, in particular, of actor Jared Leto as a very different kind of Joker. But, it’s not just the stellar casting and stunning production design that makes Suicide Squad such an exciting film prospect. It’s also the very fact of who these characters are.

If any of you were ever wondering what Two, Three, or Four were like before the amnesia, Dark Matter Season 2 Episode 3 hopefully answered some of your questions.
While the technical reasons that resulted in their reverse-amnesia didn't really make sense to me, I did appreciate this window into their pasts. Plus, it gave Five a real chance to shine.
Curiously, one of the first things that happened after the rather chilling cold open was Three walking in on Two attempting to drown her sorrows over the death of One.
Three: Those nanites of yours, they keep you from gettin' drunk, too?
Two: Yeah, I think they might.
Three: Well, guess there's a downside to everything, right?

“We’re really, really fortunate on this because Marvel and Kevin Feige have really embraced the character, and nobody knows it as well as Marvel,” said Rothman. “It is another crown jewel of Sony’s for sure. [The title] is relevant to the story because it takes place in high school and there is a scene — that I guess I can give a little thing — at a homecoming dance. I’ve actually seen the dailies of it because we already did the high school shooting of it in the first couple weeks. It’s fantastic! But it’s also a homecoming to Marvel. And a homecoming to the cinematic universe that Spider-Man belongs in. So it’s a pretty unprecedented deal between two studios, »

Although Warcraft failed miserably at the U.S. box office, grossing just $24 million, the Duncan Jones-directed fantasy epic has performed rather well in China, helping to propel the film to a solid $430 million worldwide and making it the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.
Universal and Legendary had franchise hopes for the movie (hence the Warcraft: The Beginning title in some markets), and it seems that the international box office may just help that to become a reality.
On the official Chinese Twitter account, a message has been posted which reads: “Warcraft’s theatrical run is coming to an end. But the chapter of a new decade has just begun. It’s a starting point, not an end point. We don’t say goodbye now because we’ll meet you again.”
