Everything is like The Terminator in first Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer

25 July 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Rob Corddry (Sex Tape), “The Office”’s Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke (Kick-Ass 2) are back as the rag tag, drunken group of time-travelling best friends in their sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine. After living out their lives through the 90s and 00s, Lou (Corddry), Nick (Robinson), and Jacob (Duke) have abused the system, pretending that, yes, they really did write that Lisa Loeb song, and they’re totally the inventors of the Internet.

But something, of course, goes terribly wrong, and Adam Scott takes the vacated seat of John Cusack (no!) in the hot tub to prevent some “future crime.” The boys aren’t going back to the 1980s, but rather, they’re going to the future – to 2024.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 also stars “Community”’s Gillian Jacobs and Chevy Chase.

Check out the red-band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 below! »

Halo: Nightfall Gets A Tense First Trailer, Rounds Out Cast

25 July 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In one of its most ambitious undertakings to date, Microsoft is moving forward with the live-action Halo: Nightfall TV series, which will debut for the Xbox One this November. Hailing from Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and Microsoft’s 343 Industries, the five-part series is set between the fourth and upcoming fifth Halo video games. Now, we have a taut first trailer for the show, which promises lots of brooding actors and an enigmatic storyline – not much of a surprise, seeing as it was written by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring.

Nightfall centers on a new character named Jameson Locke (Mike Colter), described as “a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (Oni), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch.” Locke is the protagonist of Halo 5: Guardians, so Nightfall will act as an origin story for the character. In Nightfall, Locke and his elite unit »

Nurse Jackie Season 5 Blu-Ray Review

7 July 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Nurse Jackie Season 5 Blu-Ray Review

The fifth season of Nurse Jackie is a somewhat unique spin in the world of TV series, because the premise of the show is turned upside-down. While Edie Falco has spent four seasons winning critical acclaim as titular, drug-addicted nurse who has to find a way to make all the facets of her life work, the writers correctly determined that it was time that the gimmick made some new movies. Thus, the fifth season has Jackie sober, and quickly approaching the one-year anniversary of her sobriety.

With her marriage falling apart, her job resting on a very precarious perch, and her ability to effectively don a parental role, Jackie has an entirely new set of problems to manage, and coping isn’t necessarily something she’s great at… depending on how you mean that.

Of course, when your personal life is in a shambles, your »

Mark Ruffalo confirms Avengers: Age of Ultron cast for Comic-Con

27 June 2014 2:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s not really much of a surprise given that it’s the last San Diego Comic-Con before the release of the film, but Mark Ruffalo has confirmed to Collider that the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in attendance in Hall H next month, where the Joss Whedon-helmed sequel will presumably be the centrepiece of Marvel’s eagerly-anticipated panel:

“Yeah, we’re gonna go out there. We’re all flying, we’re flying from London. We’re working. We’re shooting. We’re gonna stop and get on a plane and go to Comic Con together. It’s gonna be amazing… There might be some cool new Hulk, Hulk-o, Hulk-o-phobia, Hulk-o-phernalia. Hulk-a-phernalia!”

Head on over to Collider for the full interview, where Ruffalo talks about his nine-picture deal, the advancements in motion-capture technology, and the ongoing development of the Hulk / Bruce Banner relationship.

First Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer at Comic-Con?

23 June 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning we brought you a rumour suggesting that Warner Bros. is to unveil a trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at Comic-Con next month, and now a new report has surfaced claiming that Marvel Studios will also be bringing a trailer for Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron with them to San Diego. This one seems to be a no-brainer, with this year’s Hall H panel the only opportunity for Marvel to showcase its hugely-anticipated sequel before its release next Spring, while the studio is also expected to announce its plans for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release in the UK on April 24th 2015 and North America on May 1st 2015, and sees Marvel veterans Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner »

Entertainment Geekly: A call for an end to serious blockbusters

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

I never really had my Godzilla moment as a kid. The closest I ever came was a Godzilla franchise marathon one Saturday afternoon. I watched while everyone else was outside doing outside things, and my main memory of the marathon was thinking to myself, “Geez, these movies really drag when Godzilla’s not onscreen.” I think I was 10?

"Kick-Ass" and "Secret Service" creator Mark Millar has confirmed there will be a third "Kick-Ass" movie to complete the trilogy.

The first "Kick-Ass" feature released in 2010 on a budget of $30 million, earned $100 million world-wide, then sold over 1 million DVDs, scoring an additional $24 million. "Kick-Ass 2" on a budget of $28 million, released in 2013, earned $63 million world-wide plus an additional $15 million in DVD sales.

Although the numbers are not blockbuster, there is a dedicated fan-base, including director Quentin Tarantino, for Chloë Grace Moretz' portrayal as female vigilante 'Hit-Girl'.

"I'd always planned it as three books and three movies," said Millar about "Kick-Ass 3".

Skins Actor Daniel Kaluuya Boards Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario

6 June 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As if we weren’t already excited enough to see Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve’s drug war thriller Sicario, today brings news that another highly talented actor has joined the film’s already strong cast. Daniel Kaluuya, known for his stint as Posh Kenneth on the British teen drama Skins, just signed on for a supporting role.

Kaluuya will join the already attached Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, Jon Bernthal and Josh Brolin. He’ll play Reggie Wayne, an FBI agent partnered with a Tucson cop (Blunt). Sicario, from the pen of Sons of Anarchy actor Taylor Sheridan, centers on the tense journey that Blunt’s cop undertakes when she’s recruited by a CIA agent named Matt (Brolin) to escort two rangers to apprehend a dangerous drug kingpin. The cop soon becomes embroiled with a mysterious assassin (del Toro) who has a personal connection to the kingpin’s cartel, »

Mark Ruffalo promises bigger role for The Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron

5 June 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With The Incredible Hulk absent from Marvel’s Phase Two line-up, we’ve already heard from Kevin Feige to expect plenty of the Green Goliath (and Hawkeye) when Joss Whedon reassembles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now Bruce Banner himself Mark Ruffalo has echoed those sentiments during a chat with Total Film:

“[My role's] even bigger than last time, and it’s more complex and it has more layers and a bit more arc. I’m really tripping on the technology of this motion-capture stuff… now I just completely embrace it and see it as this other exciting place we can go as performers.”

So, good news for fans of The Hulk, and with Andy Serkis offering some assistance to Ruffalo when it comes to motion-capture, there’s surely a good chance that the Jade Giant could one again steal the show…

Jon Favreau on the “big gamble” of casting Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man

3 June 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When it comes to the greatest career turnarounds in Hollywood, it’s hard to look past Robert Downey Jr.; a decade ago he couldn’t even get insured for a movie role, and now he’s the highest-paid star in Hollywood – thanks to The Avengers and Iron Man 3, which grossed close to $3 billion between them – not to mention the crown jewel of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.

Before he reprises the role of Iron Man for next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Rdj has returned to his indie roots, reuniting with Iron Man and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau for the comedy Chef, and during a recent interview Favreau has spoken about the “big gamble” of casting the actor as Stark in 2008′s Iron Man:

“I remember when we cast Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man, and I was told no several times,” Favreau tells 100.3 Jack FM. »

X-Force Plans Changed By X-Men: Apocalypse, Says Rob Liefeld

3 June 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You won’t find that many X-Men fans who were disappointed by Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, last month’s fantastic, time-travelling series update. However, that could change now that X-Force creator Rob Liefeld is saying the success of that film – and the quick green-lighting of follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse – has put a monkey wrench in Fox’s plans to bring X-Force to the big screen.

Monday, Liefeld responded to a fan question about the status of an X-Force movie by tweeting the following:

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced… Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What’s new?

— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) June 2, 2014

When a knowledgeable fan responded to that answer by asking whether that meant the upcoming film would include Cable, the leader of X-Force, Liefeld tweeted:

No! No knowledge at all Rt @TheAceOfKnaves: @robertliefeld @actionscomics are you inadvertently admitting Cable is gonna be in Apocalypse? »

X-Men: Apocalypse derails X-Force film, says creator Rob Liefeld

3 June 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rob Liefeld has hinted that X-Men: Apocalypse has derailed plans for an X-Force film.

The writer-artist, who created the Cable-led mutant team in the '90s, tweeted that plans have changed at 20th Century Fox following the announcement of the X-Men: Days of Future Past follow-up.

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced... Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What's new?

— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) June 2, 2014

He added that he does not know whether Cable - the time travelling son of Cyclops - will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, but added that it was "hard to believe he won't".

Cable's origin is tied closely to that of the villain Apocalypse.

Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow has been writing the X-Force script, which Liefeld has previously praised.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is out now. X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016.

X-Men: Apocalypse may have scuppered plans for X-Force movie

2 June 2014 10:49 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox is pressing ahead with X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016 - but does that mean the X-Force movie is less likely to happen?

News

With X-Men: Days Of Future Past notching up record box office for the X-Men movie franchise, 20th Century Fox is understandably wanting to capitalise on its success by pushing ahead with more films. Thus, we're getting a new Wolverine sequel, a Gambit standalone film, and before both of those, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Apocalypse is set to mainly feature the First Class cast, so it'll be led by James McAvoy. But Fox's decision to push ahead so soon with the film (it's due in summer 2016) may have damaged the chances of the mooted X-Force movie making it to the big screen.

X-Force was created by Rob Liefeld, and it had been revealed last year that a film project was in development, with Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow directing. But as Liefeld noted over Twitter, »
