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 17 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Before Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters a couple years back, no one really knew how it would perform at the box office. Not many people were familiar with the property -- heck, even a lot of those comic book fans who knew about it didn't read the darn thing. How could Marvel expect audiences to click with movie?
With amazing spectacle and a whole lotta heart, that's how.
The film may not have had the nostalgia effect of, say, Spider-Man or Captain America: The First Avenger, but while those films survived off the strength of its source material, Guardians of the Galaxy seemed to survive on what it did differently from its own source material. In true Marvel Studios fashion, they took the hero-first approach, getting us to care about a band of rogues that included a talking raccoon and a walking tree named Groot.
Groot was a runaway success, »

Last week it was revealed by Sony chairman Tom Rothman that plans for an expanded Spider-Man Universe that would run alongside the Marvel Cinematic Universe was in development, and now the web slinger himself has opened up about the future of the franchise after Spider-Man: Homecoming.
“We’re talking about the second one and who the villain is going to be and where we’re going,” he told Women’s Wear Daily at the New York Film Festival.
With Vulture and Shocker confirmed for Spider-Man: Homecoming, could Spider-Man 2 feature use the recently rumoured Nightwatch as the villain? Or will they bring in classic characters like Doc Ock, Green Goblin and The Sandman? It has also been rumoured for some time that Sony are keen on a Venom solo movie, so there is a chance The Symbiote is on the cards too.

If you thought this past summer was disappointing for the box office, then I can’t even imagine what these past couple months have felt like for you. With the exception of, perhaps, Don’t Breathe, there were only few films that managed to perform at or slightly above expectations. If you’ve been following the last few episodes of Los Fanboys Podcast, you may have gotten used to us saying something along the lines of, “this movie probably won’t make money for the studio in its theatrical run.”
The end of October, however, marks the end of the blockbuster drought. Next up on the docket will be Doctor Strange, the 14th film in the long-running, acclaimed Marvel Cinematic Universe. Like with Guardians of the Galaxy a couple years back and Ant-Man last year, Doctor Strange is one of those properties that not a lot of people outside of »

Prior to Marvel and Sony reaching a deal that would see the wall-crawler join the McU, Sony had big plans for a Shared Spider-Man Universe with movies being developed for The Sinister Six, Venom and an ‘female Spider-Man film’. It has been rumoured that those plans were still on the cards, and Sony chairman Tom Rothman has confirmed these plans.
“We’re working on a lot of that stuff”, he told Collider when asked about spin-off movies. “There’s a concerted effort, so I think there will be real news as opposed to speculated news before too long.”
He added: “We wrapped filming the new Spider-Man about a week ago. There’s a little pick-up shooting being done now but [it’s] pretty much done. It’s fantastic… we’re really excited about it.”
The most persistent rumour is that Venom will be the target for the first spin-off movie, but reports »

Is Luke Cage being sidelined in his own show? Here are our episode 6 viewing notes. Spoilers ahead...
Luke Cage is back! In his own show! And so are our Marvel-Netflix episode notes where we’ll do a bit of commentary and reference-spotting for each episode of the series. Feel free to read along as you watch too, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments!
This episode saw Scarfe living up to his crooked nature and eventually paying the ultimate price for it – though I was totally on side with those aghast at Cottonmouth just murdering a cop and expecting to walk away from that. Clearly, things are escalating fast.
This is also one of those episodes that makes me see the complaint that Luke isn’t in his own show enough – and even when he is in it, he’s not really in the driving seat. »
Chris Pine has given a very simple answer to a very complex question in an interview with The Huffington Post. The question concerns his role in the upcoming film Wonder Woman and, more specifically, the number of roles he will be playing.
It has been long confirmed that Pine will star as Steve Trevor – the famous love interest that sparks the journey of Wonder Woman from her Themyscira home to ‘Man’s World.’ However, a combination of comic book knowledge, and rumours regarding the use of different time periods in the film has led to speculation by some that Pine will be playing both Steve Trevor, and Steve Trevor’s grandson. To this, Chris Pine simply says, “No.”

Some time ago, when it was first rumored that Chris Pine was going to join the WB's DC Extended Universe, people thought he'd make a great Hal Jordan, aka Green Lantern. What came to pass, though, was that he signed on for Wonder Woman, where he'd be playing Steve Trevor. So he'll be appearing in the first-ever Wonder Woman movie in a pivotal role, which isn't too shabby. According to Pine, though, it's pretty much a one-off.
The Star Trek actor was asked if he'd be making multiple Dceu appearances- or, as a recent rumor suggested, playing multiple roles in Wonder Woman- now that he was part of the Amazon's origin story. Pine answered, frankly, "No."
That's not to say he didn't have a lovely time working on Wonder Woman, and his next comment makes a reference to something that Dceu fans should enjoy. While much has been made »

When composer James Horner died in a plane crash in June 2015, cinema lost one of its most profoundly emotional voices, and the final chapter on Horner's astonishing career has now closed with his last work: Antoine Fuqua's Western remake The Magnificent Seven. Horner actually wrote the score based on the script before the film even started production, such was his passion for it, and it's been posthumously completed by his longtime collaborator Simon Franglen.
To mark the occasion, here are the 25 most seminal scores from a lamented, legendary figure of film music.
1. Legends Of The Fall (1994)
Despite his reputation as a composer of melodrama, throughout much of the eighties and early nineties Horner had largely been pegged as a bold composer of action, »
Jason Bourne was one of the highlights of the summer this year, and the film is hitting soon on Digital and Blu-Ray/DVD, including 4K Ultra HD, and it’s one of the definite buys of the next few months.
The release has plenty of bonuses, including several Bts featurettes, and while it doesn’t have a commentary track, it looks to have quite a lot of interview coverage that possibly manages a lot of what we might get from one anyway.
Take a look at all the details below, and mark your calendar.

We know that all of the Infinity Gems need to show up before Thanos grabs them all for Avengers: Infinity War, but there are a couple still to find. We’ve seen the Tesseract (space) in Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers, Vision’s Mind Stone (mind) in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Aether (reality) in Thor: The Dark World and the Orb (power) in Guardians of the Galaxy – and now it looks like we’ve found the Time Stone.
The latest TV spot (titled ‘Time’) for Doctor Strange sees Benedict Cumberbatch use the Eye of Agamotto during a battle, which also gives glimpses to his back story while repeating the word ‘time’ over and over again. Along with Strange using the Eye to shift time around while saying the word repeatedly, fans have started to speculate that the Eye of Agamotto contains the Time Stone.

Marvel’s latest Netflix series Luke Cage debuted this weekend, to high expectations. So far, the previous Marvel Netflix shows have been outstanding. Does Luke Cage continue the high quality trend? The answer is…mostly yes, but with reservations. Beware of Spoilers!
Marvel’s previous Netflix shows Daredevil (both seasons) and Jessica Jones have far exceeded the quality of the many network superhero TV shows that currently air. Daredevil in particular has raised the bar to new levels. That being the case, fan expectations for Luke Cage were sky high, especially after the positive response Mike Colter got for his debut of the character on Jessica Jones. Does it deliver? Yes…for the most part. It’s no Daredevil but it’s entertaining.
Luke Cage is different from what you might be expecting after seeing the earlier Netflix shows. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, because no one wants »

As I write this (Friday), the Suicide Squad movie has grossed $318, 779,276 domestically and $413,000,000 internationally for a total worldwide gross of $731,779,276. It’s been playing since the start of August and, in the U.S., it’s still on the top ten list.
It has now out-grossed the first Iron Man film. It has also out-grossed Iron Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, Thor, Ant-Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Incredible Hulk. It has also out-grossed all of the X-Men films, the Wolverine films, and The Amazing Spider-Man films.
And Suicide Squad did not access to the #2 market in the world, China. (Why won’t the Chinese let it in? Beats me.)
It means that not only a lot of people have seen the movie, but many have seen it more than once. (I’ve seen it three times so far but you’d probably guessed that I would. »
