Michael Chiklis Wants To Play Fantastic Four’s The Thing In The McU

It’s official! Disney has bought Fox, meaning that the X-Men and Fantastic Four will likely be integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe before long. While some fans are worried about what might happen with the current X-Universe, as it’s being called, it’s fair to say that just about everyone is pleased that Marvel’s First Family are returning home.

Fox has had three attempts in the past to nail a Fantastic Four movie, but have fluffed it every time. While there’s not much to defend in 2015’s effort, 2005’s outing and 2007’s Rise of the Silver Surfer did have some redeeming qualities. Sure, they were dumb and corny, but they did introduce Marvel fans to Chris Evans, who later swapped Human Torch for Captain America.

But could the McU pair Evans up with one of his old Ff cast members? That’s what Michael Chiklis is hoping for.

‘Moana’ Actress to Star in New High School Theater Drama ‘Rise’: Watch the First Trailer!

‘Moana’ Actress to Star in New High School Theater Drama ‘Rise’: Watch the First Trailer!
Get ready for a new show to sing along to! NBC released the first trailer for its upcoming musical drama, Rise.

The new show, which premieres in March, comes from the producer of Broadway’s hit Hamilton as well as the producer of standout NBC dramas Friday Night Lights and Parenthood.

And though it will likely spark Glee comparisons as it follows a dedicated teacher (How I Met Your Mother’s Josh Radnor) taking over the school’s theater department, the trailer definitely has the darker real-life elements of Friday Night Lights and Parenthood.

The show also stars Rosie Perez and Moana newcomer Auli’I Cravalho, 17, as it follows teens dealing with the pressures of school, their extracurriculars, underage drinking, and caring for sick parents.

Rise premieres on Tuesday, March 13 at 10 p.m. Et on NBC.

#WomenBoycottTwitter: Ava DuVernay, Elizabeth Banks, and Others Take Part in Rose McGowan’s Day-Long Protest
After being temporarily suspended from Twitter, Rose McGowan called on supporters to boycott the social-media site — and several people answered. The actress accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her 20 years ago, and her ban was apparently the result of tweeting a private phone number. Before going radio silent, a number of others announced their intentions.

Review: Gotham The Complete Third Season

  • Comicmix
Despite their wealth and social status. Thomas and Martha Wayne were victims of random violence in a city filled with such acts on an hourly basis. The robbery and dual murders could have happened to anyone which makes Bruce Wayne a sympathetic character – he could be us. His training to become Batman resonates because any of us could dedicate ourselves both mentally and physical to perfection in order to prevent others from becoming victims.

Unless you’re watching the mess that is Gotham. There, the everyman aspect has been stripped away from the event so here, in this twisted version of the comics, we learn their murders was ordered by the Court of Owls which is somehow tied in to the utterly corrupt Board of Directions of Wayne Enterprises.

With Gotham The Complete Third Season out now on Blu-ray from Warner Home Entertainment, we can relive the harebrained plotted which

July 2017 Box Office Marks Third Straight Month in Decline

When urban legends meet videogames

Ed Kegenof Jun 16, 2017

As The Evil Within 2‘s announced, we take a look at what happens when urban myths and legends collide with the realm of gaming...

Most people can cite at least a couple of urban legends or conspiracy theories. Paul McCartney isn't really Paul McCartney. A ghost haunts a single shot in the 80s comedy hit Three Men And A Baby. Blowing on Nintendo cartridges makes them work better.

With the advent of the internet, we might be forgiven for thinking that outlandish claims and tall tales would be chased away by the might of Google or a website like Snopes, where myth-busting facts are but a search term or click away. Instead, the web has allowed creepy stories and urban legends to travel more quickly than ever, as they’re copied and pasted in forums, emails and social media posts - hence the oft-used term 'creepypasta', used to describe these strange,

Sully Conquers the Weekend Box Office with $35.5 Million

Sully Conquers the Weekend Box Office with $35.5 Million
The Labor Day holiday weekend typically marks the end of the summer movie season, and the grosses typically reflect the end of summer as well. Last weekend, the hit thriller Don't Breathe took the top spot with $15.7 million over the first three-days, and a total of $19.5 over the extended four-day holiday, but it faced four newcomers this weekend, the true story biopic Sully, the sexually-charged thriller When the Bough Breaks, the animated adventure The Wild Life and Relativity's thriller The Disappointments Room. As predicted, Sully easily took the top spot with $35.5 million this weekend.

We had wondered if the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks would cause people to skip Sully, starring Tom Hanks as the pilot who saved lives during an incredible emergency landing known as the Miracle on the Hudson. That wasn't the case, though, with the movie pulling in an impressive $10,072 per-screen average from 3,525 theaters, according to Box Office Mojo.

Will Clint Eastwood's Sully Fly High at the Box Office?
The low-budget hit thriller Don't Breathe managed to stay atop the box office during the Labor Day holiday weekend, taking in $15.7 million over the first three-days, and a total of $19.5 over the extended four-day holiday. Now that the fall movie season is kicking into high gear, some of this year's awards season favorites will start hitting the big screen, with the highly-anticipated biopic Sully poised to be one of the first Oscar candidates to arrive this year. We're predicting that Sully should have no trouble taking the top spot this weekend with $22.5 million, fending off fellow new releases The Disappointments Room, The Wild Life and When the Bough Breaks.

What will be interesting to see is how the 9/11 anniversary affects box office sales. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attack, and while Sully, which stars Tom Hanks as the title character, does not have anything to do with terrorism,

'Zootopia' Beats '10 Cloverfield Lane' at Box Office with $50M

'Zootopia' Beats '10 Cloverfield Lane' at Box Office with $50M
After dethroning 20th Century Fox's Deadpool at the box office last weekend, Disney's Zootopia was easily expected to remain on top during its second frame in theaters. The animated comedy faced Paramount's low-budget thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, Sony's R-rated comedy The Brothers Grimsby, Focus Features' historical drama The Young Messiah and Lionsgate's The Perfect Match, none of which were expected to take down Zootopia. Box Office Mojo reports that Zootopia did in fact come out on top for the second weekend in a row, earning a healthy $50 million.

Zootopia only dropped an impressive 33.4% in its second weekend, with its current domestic tally at $142.6 million and an international total of $288.7 million for a global take of $431.3 million. The movie is a huge hit with critics, scoring a 99% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Zootopia should do well with repeat viewing. Zootopia earned a healthy $13,065 per-screen average, with the movie playing in 3,827 theaters.

Can '10 Cloverfield Lane' Scare 'Zootopia' Away at the Box Office?

Can '10 Cloverfield Lane' Scare 'Zootopia' Away at the Box Office?
Disney's Zootopia managed to dethrone 20th Century Fox's Deadpool at the box office last weekend, by setting a few records of its own. It topped Dr. Seuss' the Lorax for the highest animated movie opening in March, and became the biggest debut ever for Walt Disney Animation Studios. This weekend, it will go up against four wildly different newcomers, Paramount's low-budget thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, Sony's R-rated comedy The Brothers Grimsby, Focus Features' historical drama The Young Messiah and Lionsgate's The Perfect Match, none of which are expected to best Zootopia, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com

Zootopia is expected to drop roughly 50% this weekend, taking in a projected $37.5 million, but since animated movies have tendencies to drop less from week to week, it's possible it could debut just north of $40 million. After all, the movie is a huge hit with critics, scoring a 99% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes,
