Skull Island Director Doesn't Want to Do Godzilla Vs Kong

2 hours ago

Last month, Warner Bros. released the epic blockbuster Kong: Skull Island, which not only explored the home island of the iconic King Kong, but also set up an expanded universe that connects to the studio's 2014 hit Godzilla. While Michael Dougherty has come aboard to direct Godzilla: King of Monsters (March 22, 2019), the follow-up Godzilla vs. Kong (May 29, 2020) doesn't have a director, but it seems that Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is not interested in making another monster movie.

When Kong: Skull Island opened last month, it was a hit with critics, with a 77% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and with fans alike, earning $163.9 million domestically and $559 million worldwide from an $185 million budget. During a chat with Screen Junkies News, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts was asked if he would like to take the helm for the follow-up Godzilla vs. Kong, but the filmmaker stated that he was done with monster movies. »

As we get closer and closer to the July 7 release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, anticipation is higher than ever, and while we still have a few months to wait, a hilarious parody mashes up Spidey's world with the unique visual style of the music video for the Bruno Mars song "That's What I Like."

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Early Reviews: It's Not as Good as the First

3 hours ago

Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has a lot to live up to this time around. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, based on the comic book created in 1969, was praised for its soundtrack and quirky humor that set it apart from other McU films. In addition, the film was a surprise smash at the box office and ended up being McU's third highest grossing film, raking in a whooping $773 million worldwide and guaranteeing the prospect of a bigger sequel.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 scored a rare perfect score of 100 during a test screening back in February, which was higher than any other McU film. That test screening has only ramped up the excitement for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and now the critic reviews are starting to trickle in.

Avengers 4 Title Revealed by Zoe Saldana?

3 hours ago

Avengers: Infinity War is in full swing with the movie currently in the process of filming for release next year. We recently learned that the movie will be shooting separately from Avengers 4, which has a title, but Marvel doesn't want to let us know what it is just yet. Zoe Saldana may have missed that message, because it looks like she may have revealed the title for Avengers 4 in a recent interview.

Recently, Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige said that the title of Avengers 4 would serve as something of a spoiler. That being said, if you don't want to venture into spoiler territory for Avengers: Infinity War, you may want to turn back now. During a recent interview for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with journalist Lizo Mzimba, Zoe Saldana seemingly revealed that the title of Avengers 4 will be Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet. Here is what she had to say »

Bad news, Star Wars fans.

Portland Opens First Airport Movie Theater in the U.S.

6 hours ago

Travelling can often become an arduous ordeal, and if your flight becomes delayed, you can be stuck at the airport for hours with nothing to do. Located in Portland, Oregon, the Hollywood Theatre, has been around since 1926. They have recently opened up a small 17-seat movie theater in the Portland International Airport called Hollywood Theatre Pdx, where fans can watch local indie films. And unlike practically everything else in this and every other airport, the theater is completely free. The theater, which began allowing folks in this past February, is the first-ever movie theater in a U.S. airport. But it was inspired by a similar theater in Hong Kong.

Afar Magazine explains that Doug Whyte, the executive director of the Hollywood Theater, got the idea for this airport movie house after reading about a similar theater in the Hong Kong International Airport, where patrons can watch new full-length theatrical releases. »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Review: A Roaring Pop-Fueled Ride

6 hours ago

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a roaring space adventure filled with humor and heart. It doesn't quite reach the greatness of the original, but comes close enough to be a smashing success. Director/writer James Gunn gives each character their moment to shine. The primary cast is superb, but the film is loaded with small roles that add up to a whole lot of quirkiness. Guardians 2 bursts unto the screen like a pack of rainbow Skittles. It's an eighties pop fueled ride that starts the summer movie season off with a technicolor bang. This review is completely spoiler free.

Guardians 2 leaps headfirst into the plot like a diver into a shallow pool. We pick up the crew: Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and the adorable Baby Groot (Vin Diesel), on a job that's gone decidedly south.

8 hours ago

Earlier this month at Star Wars Celebration, fans gathered from around the world to celebrate A New Hope's 40th Anniversary. Throughout the past four decades, this first Star Wars movie was often at the top of the all-time box office charts, first beating Jaws, becoming the first movie ever to make more than $300 million domestically. Now it seems a new era is upon us. For the first time ever, Star Wars: A New Hope was knocked out of the all-time domestic box office top 10 by Disney's live-action blockbuster Beauty and the Beast.

Last weekend's $9.9 million take brought Beauty and the Beast's domestic total up to $471 million, surpassing the $460.9 take of A New Hope, according to Box Office Mojo. The first-ever Star Wars movie earned $307.2 million during its original theatrical run back in 1977, plus an additional $15.4 million during a 1982 theatrical re-issue, and $138.2 million from the 1997 Special Edition theatrical release, »

Star Wars Moisture Farming Is Becoming a Reality

9 hours ago

The 1977 classic Star Wars: A New Hope gave fans their first look at this galaxy far, far away, and our introduction to one of the most iconic characters of all time, Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker. While fans could easily relate to Luke's plight, wanting to leave his adopted family's farm to strike out on his own, we learned quickly that almost everything in this universe is different than our own, including the farm he lived on. Luke's uncle Owen Lars (Phil Brown) and aunt Beru Lars (Shelagh Fraser) ran a moisture farm on the desert planet of Tatooine, where they used devices called "vaporators" to draw moisture from the air to produce drinking water, and today we have word that this fictional technology may become a reality.

Disney has pretty brilliantly found a way to capitalize on their classic movies by remaking them and presenting them in a new way for modern audiences. Live-action remakes of Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast have all crushed at the box office.

Avengers 4 Title Is a Huge Spoiler for Infinity War

10 hours ago

We've known for a while now that Avengers: Infinity War and the currently untitled Avengers 4 are no longer going to be a part 1 and part 2. It was recently revealed that the movies are not being shot together either, as was originally the plan, which lends some credibility to the idea that these truly will be two different movies. But don't expect to learn the title for the fourth Avengers movie anytime soon, because according to Kevin Feige, it's a spoiler.

The President of Marvel Studios has been busy making the press rounds for their latest release, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which is set to hit theaters in less than two weeks. Kevin Fegie recently spoke to Cinemablend and, when asked point blank whether or not the title for Avengers 4 is a spoiler, he made it quite clear that it is. Here is what he had to say.

What Guardians of the Galaxy Would Look Like as a DC Movie

11 hours ago

As fans get ready for the highly-anticipated sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, many are revisiting the original 2014 blockbuster that started it all. A new fan trailer has surfaced that puts a much different spin on this unique superhero movie, envisioning what the colorful Marvel adventure may have looked like as a DC Comics adaptation. All it takes, apparently, is the selection of some creepy music, and the right scenes that take all of the heart and humor out of Guardians of the Galaxy, which is now painted as a much more dreary outing.

This video was created by YouTube channel Exploring the Internet, which uses the song "Bughuul" from a group known as Reptilium, a rather dark heavy metal track that was inspired by the horror movie Sinister. This song sets the proper tone for the video, which begins with a young Peter Quill watching his mother die, »
