Last month, we reported that Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey turned down the villain role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, while the highly-anticipated sequel added its first new cast member Pom Klementieff, who is reportedly playing Mantis. Pre-production is currently under way in Atlanta, as writer-director James Gunn prepares to start principal photography early next year. One of the biggest questions swirling around this superhero sequel is the identity of Star Lord's (Chris Pratt) father, which will be revealed in the movie. All we know for sure is that it won't be the same character as it was in the comics, J'son. Today, we have a new rumor from Heroic Hollywood, which has revealed the identity of Peter Quill/Star-Lord's father. Be warned, there will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
The site has revealed, through four independent sources, that Star-Lord's father is none other that the first Captain Marvel, »

Chicago – He may be Dwight Schrute of “The Office” forever in reruns, but he is also – according to his new memoir – “The Bassoon King.” Rainn Dietrich Wilson created the offbeat Schrute, and has had a diverse and high profile career. He was at the Yellow Box Theater in Naperville, Ill., recently, being interview by Chicago artist Tony Fitzpatrick, in an event sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop.
Born in Seattle, Washington, Wilson’s family moved to the Chicago area during his high school years, and he attended New Trier High in Winnetka, Ill. He began his career after college in New York City, and made his on-screen acting debut in the soap opera “One Life to Live” in 1997, followed closely by his film debut in “Galaxy Quest” in 1999. He worked steadily in TV and film before landing the role »

James Gunn is very good at Twitter. He was very good at Twitter back in the olden days, when he was just the mad genius behind Slither and Super. Now that he’s the director of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, he’s taken his larger profile in stride. Few filmmakers are as good at engaging their fans […]

"Melvin is not like other people..." "What you've got is a gift." Screen Media has unleashed a trailer for the dark comedy American Hero, about a guy who has telekinetic abilities, but doesn't use them for much other than to fuel his addiction to drugs and alcohol. After barely surviving one day, he has a change of heart and realizes he has to fight back. Stephen Dorff plays the telekinetic, Melvin, and he seems like perfect casting for this kind of role. Though it's hard not to mention how much this reminds me of that Will Smith movie Hancock, or James Gunn's Super or even Chronicle a bit. This could actually be entertaining after all. Here's the first official trailer for Nick Love's American Hero, in high def on Apple: Melvin (Stephen Dorff), a reluctant hero who is far from super, has been suppressing his telekinetic powers for years with booze, »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at why more actors than ever are promoting products…
The imminent release of the new Bond film, means we can expect a few things; exotic locations, impressive stunts, thinly veiled misogyny and, perhaps most importantly, lucrative commercial tie ins.
If you’ve been to the cinema in Britain recently, or even just passed a bus stop, you’ll probably have seen Naomie Harris advertising the new Sony Xperia Z5. If you’ve opened a broadsheet, you’ll have seen Daniel Craig endorsing Omega watches. It’s standard procedure for Bond films; brands get to be associated with an iconic film series, and the studios get the latest products, and a huge chunk of cash to fun their films. You won’t see it in the UK, but Daniel Craig appears in Heineken adverts in the Us; they paid £28 million to appear in Skyfall, so it »

This silly British comedy concerns a Peckham postie with supernatural powers but no semblance of a love life
In the underpopulated Venn diagram intersection between superhero movie and Brit loser comedy sits this half-cooked tale of a Peckham postman with superpowers. Bob (Brett Goldstein, who also co-wrote the screenplay) was hit by a meteor and subsequently developed a skill set that includes laser vision, super strength and the ability to fly. However, the meteor had little effect on his frankly dismal social skills. He may have saved humanity many times over, but he hasn’t had a date in six years. All this might be about to change: it’s Bob’s day off and he has arranged to meet the local librarian – but his Ministry of Defence handler (Catherine Tate) has other ideas. The film shares some thematic similarities with James Gunn’s vigilante nerd picture Super; however, the unfocused, »

Still no Jaws 19 (although Universal have made it a mock-trailer). And, if you’re going by Robert Zemeckis’ – the trilogy’s original director – word, definitely no »

No critic is infallible. It’s an open secret that few of them will admit, but would be remiss to deny. As valuable a resource as the informed film critic can provide when appraising a motion picture, we’re prone to the same random prejudices and peccadillos as anyone else. Sure, professionalism dictates that we diligently strive to check them at the door, but few of even the very best films are recognized as classics on first sight, and any number of random factors – including real-life experience – can skew our perception as we weigh the many factors that lead to a film’s ultimate success or failure.
Citizen Kane (1941), The Wizard of Oz (1939), and Blade Runner (1982) were all panned by critics upon initial release, yet today they’re rightfully considered classics. So what stuck in Pauline Kael’s craw when she turned up her nose at The Graduate, and who »

While not nearly as big as San Diego Comic-Con, The Chicago Wizard World Comic Con does respectable enough business and is known for pulling in some stellar talent. The convention has continued on throughout the weekend, where some choice rumors have flown forth. Among the many celebrity guests were Arrow star Stephen Amell, Star Trek legend William Shatner, and Firefly captain Nathan Fillion, just to name a few. And while you'll be hearing some more interesting news coming forth in the hours and days ahead, as journalists pick through their short interviews for news worthy tidbits, one of the coolest moments came when Nathan Fillion revealed which DC Comics superhero he desperately wants to play. And it sounds like a perfect fit.
Robot Chicken exists in a very unique world, and the release of the seventh season on DVD hasn’t really changed anything.
The show is a wild and random mix of short vignettes that, in one way or another, take shots at pop culture and/or simply culture, with a definite air toward not just politically incorrect viewpoints, but several steps beyond the merely politically incorrect.
As time has gone on, the show created by Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Mike Fasolo, has clearly developed a distinct voice, but it has undergone changes as well. Certain sketches during the seventh season showcase a bit more style, and a more mature sense of how to get the comedy to deliver. That may sound a little highbrow for what is ultimately a completely ridiculous show that often features such things as the antics of Santa Claus as you’ve never seen him before, »

If you are someone who uses Netflix Instant as your sole source for TV and movie entertainment, then you know how easy it is to fall into a rut. It can be so hard to find quality movies after a while and you end up watching the same stuff over and over. Well, search no more! Here are 6 often overlooked movies that you may not have seen or had a chance to watch yet. (Or you may not know whether they are worth your time but trust me they are!)
Starring Elisabeth Moss of “Mad Men” fame and Mark Duplass from “The League.” This film is… surprising. I can’t give too much away because the film was specifically advertised with misdirection. The actual premise sneaks up on you and you is one of the most clever films released in 2014. Also these two actors are the »

Each year, pop culture fans from around the world make their way to San Diego Comic-Con to bask in the glow of the largest convention of its kind, a singular experience that brings well over 100,000 people together to celebrate comics, film, TV, gaming, and much more. Most attendees differ in their primary interests, but one doesn’t make the trek to Sdcc without being a fan of something, and that shared enthusiasm is a big part of what brings people back again and again. This year, SoS’s Elizabeth Rico and Whitney McIntosh joined TV Editor Kate Kulzick at the Con.
Kate Kulzick: Another Sdcc has come and gone and finally, a week after it ended, I’ve recovered. It was an exhausting experience for me this year, and this was my fourth year attending—how was it for you guys? This was your first times, right?
Elizabeth Rico: Oh good, »

Sean Gunn will be familiar to many for his role as village eccentric Kirk in television series The Gilmore Girls. What some might not realise is that he is indeed the brother of James Gunn, the director of the fantastic Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy.
Gunn has been appearing in his brother’s projects for years, is featured in Super, and even turned up for an episode or two of reality competition Scream Queens on which James was a judge. He also starred as not one but two characters in Guardians of the Galaxy, the first was Kraglin, one of Yondu’s henchmen, the second was Rocket Raccoon.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Bradley Cooper played the part, but in actuality he only voiced the character and there were several other key members that bought »

From The Office to Super to, now, The Boy Rainn Wilson has sure shown he's gone range. Here he plays the father of the titular "boy" in the new psychological thriller produced by Elijah Wood’s Spectrevision.
The film, based on Clay McLeod Chapman’s novel “Miss Corpus," hits select theaters and VOD on August 18th.
It’s the summer of 1989. Nine-year-old Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) and his father John (David Morse) are the proprietors of The Mtn. Vista Motel, a crumbling resort buried in the mountains of the American West. Since Ted’s mother left, John has drifted into despondency—becoming a living ghost, haunting the motel—leaving Ted to fend for himself. In this isolation, unchecked by the bounds of parenting, Ted’s [Continued ...] »
Oh, if the walls of Maison Sur Mer — the home-furnishings oasis owned by Mistresses‘ April Malloy — could talk. They’ve already seen a ne’er-do-well husband fake his death; an ab-tastic FBI agent deliver an oversized canvas that, by all scientific measures, should’ve burst into flames from the glistening bodies (and acrylic colors) that painted it; and some light blackmail, adultery and overzealous day drinking for good measure.

The 7th annual Montreal Comiccon, was held at the Palais des Congrès this past weekend and for the first time in seven years, I was able to attend the event. Past Cons were held in early September, conflicting with my coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival, but this year, the organizers decided to change the date allowing me to geek out to a variety of attractions catering to fans of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, games, television and film. I’m pleased to announce that I was pleasantly surprised with the event as a whole. Montreal’s geek extravaganza is extremely laid back. There was little time spent waiting in line and everyone seems to be having a good time. I counted over two dozen booths filled with comic book artists ready to draw up an original piece on the spot, sign an autograph »
