‘Samurai Jack’ Creator Genndy Tartakovsky On Putting Sex and Violence Into the Fifth Season

17 October 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After Genndy Tartakovsky’s cult animated series “Samurai Jack” was canceled by Cartoon Network in 2004, rumors swirled for years about a feature-length adaptation. Tartakovsky worked with four different studios to adapt his hyper-stylized blend of martial arts and sci-fi action for the big screen, including New Line, Sony and J.J. AbramsBad Robot, but none of them panned out. “As soon as we started developing it as a movie, they wanted to fit it into a box,” Tartakovsky told IndieWire. “I love ‘Jack’ as one of my creations and would never want to change it from what it was supposed to be. There was no reason to reinvent. It was working.”

Jon Favreau looking forward to seeing The Indian Adaptation Of Chef

28 September 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

As you probably know, Chef, starring Saif Ali Khan is a remake of the hit 2014 Hollywood film that starred Jon Favreau; who by the way also directed the brilliant film. Now we hear the actor/director is looking forward to watching the official Indian adaptation of the film.

Mr. Favreau has directed a vast range of Hollywood films, including Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Elf as well as the last global blockbuster The Jungle Book. He has also been the executive producer on Iron Man 3 and the Marvel’s Avengers franchise.

The director has been ecstatic ever since the launch of the trailer and wanted to come to India to watch the film with the team here. However, since he is currently busy with his next film in L.A., the makers are planning to keep a screening for him there.

The official spokesperson of the film confirms the news saying, »

Hilarious It Video Proves Pennywise Can Dance to Any Music

22 September 2017 7:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Andres Muschietti's It is tearing it up at the box office after enjoying two consecutive weekends at number one and Pennywise is looking to celebrate the enormous success of the movie. What better way to celebrate than dance, since that's what Pennywise the Dancing Clown does best. Well, that and scaring the crap out of people in the process. A new set of videos released prove that Pennywise can pretty much dance to anything with a good beat, and he looks to really enjoy himself each time a new song gets set up.

A new Pennywise_Dance Twitter account was started and it's nothing but dancing Pennywise. Have you ever wondered if the creepy clown can dance to "Take On Me" by Norwegian group A-Ha? Well look no further because Pennywise can now be seen dancing to those iconic incredibly high vocal stylings of Morten Harket. Perhaps you'd like to »

Power Pack Movie Is Back on at Marvel?

18 September 2017 5:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

12 years after Marvel used the rights to Power Pack as collateral in a deal that lead to the origins of Marvel Studios, the blockbuster studio is reportedly revisiting that property. A new report claims that, while we may be a ways off from a Power Pack movie actually happening, steps are being taken to put the movie into development, with longtime Marvel Studios executive Jonathan Schwartz being given executive oversight on the film. Jonathan Schwartz has been working for Marvel since 2009, where he first started as an assistant to Kevin Feige on Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, before being elevated to a producer on Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the upcoming Captain Marvel.

The news comes from That Hashtag Show, which reports that the studio is looking to make a "Spy Kids-like story" that follows the Power family The »

What Do We Need from the Hellboy Reboot?

17 September 2017 4:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Source: Fashion and Action via Facebook

As news about American Gods actor Ian McShane’s role in the new Hellboy reboot surfaces, more and more questions are being asked about the future of the Hellboy franchise. Many fans spoke out about original Hellboy actor, Ron Perlman, and their anger seeing the rough and tumble man kicked to the curb, but were at least relieved to see a fitting replacement in Stranger Things star David Harbour, an actor similarly known for his gruff demeanor. 

Source: Medina Maitreya via Facebook

The new movie will pit the big, red cat lover against the Blood Queen, the ruling witch queen over all the witches of England. As the original two films with Perlman focused on Rasputin, a main villain of the series, the sorcerer’s time in the comics ended fairly early. 

The blood queen, however, played her role near the end of the standalone Hellboy series, »

Dceu Movies Don’t Follow The “Marvel Model,” Says Nightwing Director

16 September 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros./DC and Marvel are mining pretty much the exact same territory: aiming to create a united cinematic universe that stretches across multiple characters while periodically uniting them for really big threats. It’s a relatively new tactic in cinema, but one as old as the hills in comic books.

What’s interesting is the differing tactics each studio uses to achieve this. Understandably, few directors are willing to spill the beans on precisely how each of their creative processes work, but now, courtesy of Nightwing helmer Chris McKay, we at least have a glimpse of how Warner Bros./DC are defining themselves against the McU method.

In a recent interview with Metro, he said the following:

“Warner Bros is a more director-driven studio. Period. The end. More than any other studio you’re ever going to work at. Just look at the roster of world-class filmmakers that have »

Get Your First Look At Red Sparrow

14 September 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We may not ever get a Scarlett Johansson lead Black Widow stand-alone film, but we it looks like we are getting the closest thing to with Jennifer Lawrence.

We have been waiting for a Black Widow film since she first showed up in Iron Man 2. We will probably continue to wait for it, but we are getting the next best thing. Nearly the same story, just outside of the McU, and starring Jennifer Lawrence, as Fox has released the first trailer for Red Sparrow. Check it out below.

The story follows Dominika Egorova, played by Jennifer Lawrence, is many things: A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs; A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit; A master of seductive and manipulative combat. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. »

Josh Boone Shares Updated New Mutants Logo As Filming Enters The Home Stretch

12 September 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In accordance with earlier reports, filming on 20th Century Fox and Josh Boone’s New Mutants spinoff has entered the home stretch, and an updated logo has arrived to prove it.

Posted to Boone’s personal Instagram feed (with a tip of the hat to Cbm), the logo below is drenched in blood. If nothing else, it proves Josh Boone wasn’t kidding around when he vowed to deliver a “full-blown” horror movie with New Mutants, and we’ve learned that the final product will be inspired by the horror trappings of Stephen King (It) and John Hughes.

Chronicling the story of gifted youngsters trapped within a super-secret research facility, New Mutants has endured a long, meandering journey to the big screen, but much like Deadpool 2 before it, principal photography is almost complete. As Boone revealed via Instagram, Fox’s 2018 spinoff has begun its last week of shooting in Canada, »

10 Actors Who Rejected Marvel Superhero Roles

11 September 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel movies are big business, from the Avengers franchise and all of the interconnected heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on screens both big and small, to Fox's ever-expanding world of the X-Men and Deadpool, to the Sony steered Spider-man movies, going all the way back to Sam Raimi's original trilogy. But that doesn't mean every big name actor and A list talent in Hollywood wants to be associated with these characters. Some heavyweight actors have straight up said no way when Marvel came knocking. So, who would do such a thing?

Since becoming its own studio, which was later acquired by Disney in one of the biggest studio deals this side of Lucasfilm, Marvel has had no problem attracting top-tier A-list talent to its roster; the talent who commands major ticket grosses and critical acclaim alike. Who doesn't want to suit up as a one of Marvel's Merry Mutants, »

Taika Waititi considers Thor: Ragnarok to be the first film in a new Thor series

11 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back when Thor came out in theaters, everyone was a bit apprehensive. Marvel simply didn’t have the greatest track-record getting their works adapted to film (Yet). The first Iron Man film, at the time, was considered a bit of a “unicorn”. It was a solid film in its own right, and a massive step up for Marvel in terms of quality. Then Iron Man 2 happened. This, of course, led everyone to fear the worst for Thor’s first solo outing.

And how did it do? Not too bad, actually. The film has its detractors, sure, but Chris Hemsworth owned the part, and director Kenneth Branagh perfectly struck a balance between the mythological, and the banal. Thor: The Dark World fared about the same, critically. So what about Thor: Ragnarok, the Asgardian’s third solo adventure? Is there much connective tissue to the other films? According to director Taika Waititi, »

Thor Puts Together ‘The Revengers’ In New ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer

8 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe have maintained a pretty consistent level of quality on the whole. Even the worst of their films — “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Age Of Ultron,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Ant-Man” — have elements to recommend them, and never sink as low as an “X-Men: Apocalypse” or “Suicide Squad.” But on the flipside, even the best of their films haven’t really reached genuine greatness in the way that, say, “Spider-Man 2” or “The Dark Knight” managed.

31 August 2017 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sam Rockwell (Matchstick Men, Iron Man 2) is one of the best actors working today so any role he takes on is worth taking a look at. But this latest news is particularly interesting. The 48-year-old actor is reportedly in final negotiations to play former president George W. Bush in the upcoming Dick Cheney biopic, simply titled Cheney, which is to be directed by Adam McKay (The Big Short).

The news comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter who state that Sam Rockwell is going to play the infamous president in Cheney, who was in office during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and led us into war with Afganastan and the much more controversial Iraq war. Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) has already signed on to play Dick Cheney in the movie, which looks to start filming next month. The cast of the movie also includes Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, »

This List of Every Superhero In Avengers: Infinity War Will Make You Infinitely Stoked

14 August 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It seems like only yesterday that Marvel Studios was getting started with a hero that was, let's face it, merely C-list at the time. After years of film and TV properties of varying degrees of quality, which saw Marvel's heroes tied up in various licensing deals with different studios, Iron Man kicked off what would become known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, a decade later, we're finally ready for Avengers: Infinity War. And it's going to be massive.

Even Iron Man director Jon Favreau publicly wondered how the grounded real world of Tony Stark could possibly co-exist with the mythological realm of Asgard, but by the time Thor, Captain America, and Hulk joined the McU with their own standalone movies, Marvel's The Avengers brought it all together and smashed box office records in the process. The mostly costume adverse McU of Netflix has kept it real with keeping it all real, »

July 2017 Box Office Marks Third Straight Month in Decline

8 August 2017 4:43 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

After July 2015 and 2016 saw increases from one year to the next, July 2017 took a step back, down 12.2% compared to 2016 with calendar grosses reaching $1.2 billion from 221 films compared to $1.37 billion last July. Leading the way was Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which topped all releases bringing in $280 million in July, earning Sony the #1 spot for the month with six films grossing nearly $390 million. Overall, this marks the third month in a row to show a decline compared to 2016 with the summer movie season struggling and showing no sign of improvement in the month of August with the season currently pacing 11% behind 2016.

Digging deeper into July, we'll start at the top with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which delivered $280 million since its July 7 release. The film is now approaching $300 million domestically, »
