After tackling ensemble cast members of Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse, among other upcoming comic book movies, while also inspiring Tyrese Gibson's recent Green Lantern campaign, fan artist BossLogic has taken to Twitter to share his latest work of art. In addition to visualizing actor Terry Crews as the Silver Surfer, in whom the Expendables 2 star had expressed interest in playing just yesterday, BossLogic also tackled Channing Tatum as the Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit, who the White House Down actor will portray on the big-screen October 7, 2016.

★★★☆☆ Zach Braff's second feature, Wish I Was Here (2014), was famously - or perhaps infamously - financed partially through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Braff's reasoning for this was to spare his project from the compromises that would come with a studio production. That Braff got to do exactly what he wanted is very evident in the resulting film. Aidan Bloom (Braff) is a struggling actor, supported by his loving wife Sarah (Kate Hudson), while his father, Gabe (Mandy Patinkin), pays for Aidan and Sarah's two children - daughter Grace (Joey King of White House Down (2013) and TV's Fargo) and son Tucker (Pierce Gagnon of Looper (2012)) to attend an expensive private Hebrew school.

It turns out that most of them just didn't take to it too well, giving it an overall 31 score out of a possible 100 across 27 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The movie stars: Kristin Chenoweth, John Corbett, Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Guzman. We've added blurbs from a couple of the critics, below. Claudia Puig at USA Today, gave it a 63 score, stating: "Predictable and foolishly unsuspecting characters react in ways that make you want to shake them. But there's an undeniable sense of silly fun in this erotic thriller." Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 58 grade. He said: "Boy's premise reeks of stalker-movie mothballs, and it's too timid to fully dive into the high camp it hints at. Instead, this cookie just crumbles. »

Warner Bros previously acquired rights in Germany while a Us deal is understood to be in the works.
Currently in post-production, Stonewall recreates the events that culminated in the riots outside the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village, in June 1969. The events are considered by many as a turning point in the gay rights movement.
Irvine plays Danny Winters, a young man who is kicked out of his home by his parents and flees to New York where, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of local drag queens, gays, lesbians and everything in between: the Mafia-run Stonewall Inn.
There he meets the suave Trevor (Meyers), but catches »

Try to pick out the single most ridiculous thing about Big Game after watching its trailer. Is it that Samuel L. Jackson plays the President of the United States? Or that he’s thrown into some kind of crazy “Most Dangerous Game” style human-hunting contest for terrorists? Is it that he’s paired up with a kid (Onni Tommila)? Is it that this kid is Finnish and much of this action movie is in Finnish but that won’t stop American audiences who don’t normally watch foreign films to check out Samuel L. Jackson in a movie that’s basically a mix of Air Force One, Die Hard, White House Down/Olympus Has Fallen and Escape from New York, except where the main hero is a kid? (Also some might go see it thinking it’s about a big sports game.) My pick is Jim Broadbent seemingly phoning it in as a spy who himself is »

Massive explosions, a terrorist hijacking and lots and lots of gunplay. Big Game screams Die Hard knockoff, and if it wasn.t for Samuel L. Jackson.s involvement, we probably would.ve instantly written it off as just another measly, unimportant action flick. But thanks to the first Big Game trailer, with its grandiose speeches on "9/11" and "big game hunting," we.re on board for its sheer ridiculousness. "Find the President. Kill the sons of bitches who are after him. Bring him home." Now that sounds like a direct quote from White House Down or Olympus Has Fallen, but the premise isn.t. As seen in the Big Game trailer, a young boy named Oskari is sent off to survive on his own in the wilderness to eventually emerge into manhood. During his time in solitude, he encounters the President of the United States (Jackson), whose plane was shot down »
A blood-soaked cautionary tale about the price of fame and sacrificing your own identity in the name of ambition, Starry Eyes is yet another fantastic reminder that the indie genre world is truly the best (and generally only) place fans can find ambitious and challenging horror tales these days. Anchored by a breakout performance by Alex Essoe, Starry Eyes is by far one of the more captivating and unforgettable horror movies I’ve seen this year and I cannot recommend it enough.
For Snowpiercer, Bong Joon-ho ventures into the sci-fi realm resulting in an experience that’s relentless, exhilarating, emotionally devastating and wholly unlike anything else released this year. A masterful blending of genres coupled with timeless political allegories, a hint of social satire and a star-studded cast who all deliver tour de force performances. Snowpiercer may not necessarily be the biggest movie that was released this year, »
