Chewbacca Punches a Porg in Latest Star Wars 8 Footage

17 hours ago

Porgs are everywhere these days and they are either hated or loved by Star Wars fans. Even the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi can't figure out if they love them or hate them. Finn actor John Boyega recently said that they get to be quite a handful when there's a lot of them in one place and Daisy Ridley has revealed that Rey isn't too into them while she's on Ahch-To. But one of the bigger relationships that we've all been hearing so much about is how one particular Porg is being used as a therapy creature for Chewbacca after the devastating loss of his pal Han Solo. So why is the Wookie punching his little buddy in the newest Last Jedi TV spot?

In honor of the holiday, Lucasfilm has released yet another TV spot for The Last Jedi. In addition to Chewie punching his new Porg buddy, »

Justice League VFX Video Reveals Batman and Cyborg's Superhero Secrets

18 hours ago

A new VFX reel for Justice League has just been released online and it gives us a sneak peek into the digital special effects that went into making the little details of Dceu movie look as great as it does. The movie finally hit theaters last week after months of controversy and speculation and while the movie is divisive, one thing that almost everybody can agree upon is that the villainous Steppenwolf looks like he has on way too much CGI makeup and really doesn't look scary or evil at all. The new VFX reel focuses on the heroes of the Justice League and their user interfaces that do a lot of the heavy lifting, not the overall CGI used in the movie.

The Justice League VFX reel shows off some of the lesser-seen elements of the movie, but they are integral pieces to the movie that deserve some spotlight. »

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew

18 hours ago

It's a certified cinema classic and one of the most quotable movies ever. Two years after Reservoir Dogs, video store clerk turned auteur Quentin Tarantino turned out another masterpiece in Pulp Fiction, the 1994 movie that rescued John Travolta from the pop culture waste bin via a now iconic performance, matched in creative and artistic firepower by Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Amanda Plummer, Ving Rhames, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson as the soul searching hit man Jules. Pulp Fiction still regularly plays in midnight showings at the writer/director's own New Beverly Cinema. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Pulp Fiction.

Matt Dillon was almost Butch.

Originally Quentin Tarantino conceived of the "palooka" pugilist played by Bruce Willis as a younger up and coming boxer. He envisioned Matt Dillon in the role. But after the actor reportedly took too long to decide, »

Dead Cross' Church Music Video Is the Best Horror Short of 2017

19 hours ago

Hardcore super group Dead Cross, featuring ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton, have just released a new video for their song "Church of the Motherf---ers" and it's the best horror short of the year. This is the band's second video off of their debut album and it is an intense look at religion with some harsh undertones of what has been happening in the entertainment industry's sexual misconduct scandals. When a band sounds as brutal as Dead Cross, it's hard to find imagery that heightens that feeling instead of parodying it, and director Michael Panduro has done a perfect job of capturing the pure essence of this type of music.

The Fight Club-themed video for "Church of the Motherf--ers" opens with a quote from German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who states, "The influence of a man has never yet grown great without his blind pupils. »

Is Infinity War Bringing Back Hela and the Ancient One?

19 hours ago

It looks like a couple of major characters may be returning for Avengers: Infinity War. The massive Marvel event movie looks to be the culmination of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up to this point. That being the case, pretty much every major character is going to show up, if only briefly. And, if Mark Ruffalo is to be believed, that may even extend to quite recent and presumably dead characters.

During a recent interview on Michael Rapaport's I am Rapaport podcast, the man responsible for bringing Hulk to life was asked which actors left "the best impression" on him after having worked with them. He then proceeded to name drop both Cate Blanchett, whom he worked with on Thor: Ragnarok and, more surprisingly, Tilda Swinton, who portrayed The Ancient One in Doctor Strange. That's of particular note because, as far as we can tell, »

Bb-8 Works His Magic in Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser

19 hours ago

As the countdown continues towards Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a new Verizon ad has been revealed which features new footage of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Bb-8. Fans were introduced to both Poe and Bb-8 together early on in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, although the loveable ball droid ended up with Rey (Daisy Ridley) throughout most of the movie. Now he will be reunited with the Resistance X-Wing pilot in The Last Jedi, as we see in this new footage. While we don't get a ton of extra moments, it does showcase how handy Bb-8 can be, while Oscar Isaac himself offers more on his character in a new interview.

The ad features a brief scene with Poe Dameron in the middle of an aerial dogfight in his X-Wing ship, when he asks Bb-8 to "work his magic." Bb-8 then descends from his usual post on the X-Wing ship to go down below, »

Deathstroke Goes Unmasked in New Justice League Photo

20 hours ago

A new image of Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke has surfaced and it features the actor without his infamous mask. Spoilers Ahead. Slade Wilson is one of DC's most dangerous characters and his involvement in the Dceu has been teased for over a year now. He made a cameo in the incredibly divisive Justice League, where the immensely corny "league of our own" comment comes from, lifted from the female baseball movie A League of Their Own. So much for the whole dangerous thing for Deathstroke and Lex Luthor.

The new behind-the-scenes photo features Joe Manganiello on set with 2 of Lex Luthor's bodyguards played by Katia Elizarova and Gem Refoufi. Though the picture doesn't show off the eyepatch, it's still a great image of Slade Wilson, aka, Deathstroke hanging out on set. Joe Manganiello is getting his own Deathstroke movie as well, and the Justice League post-credit scene possibly teased the »

Snoke's Motivation and Twisted History Revealed in The Last Jedi

20 hours ago

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is only a few weeks away. Motion capture maestro Andy Serkis has taken some time to talk about Supreme Leader Snoke in a new interview that gives us some insight into what fuels the mysterious villain. Even as the release date for the movie gets closer, there's still a whole lot about Snoke that we do not know and director Rian Johnson has said that we won't get much of a backstory for him in The Last Jedi, citing that Star Wars fans didn't know Emperor Palpatine's history until the prequels came out. While we might not be getting the entire history of Snoke in the upcoming movie, Andy Serkis has provided us with the best insight into the character so far.

Andy Serkis recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss his Snoke character and what drives the villain in The Last Jedi. As it turns out, »

Take Me Review: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Movie

21 hours ago

It's Thanksgiving. You and the family have just finished your meal. And you want some lighter fare, suffering from the tryptophan buffet you just willingly engorged yourself with. The kids are off playing on their tablets. The game is over, and the adults need a swift 80 minute distraction before tearing into pumpkin pie and cobbler. Why not check out one of Netflix's looked-over gems from the past few months. It's the perfect little slice of desert before the desert. Don't spend hours searching the queue, arguing over what you're going to watch. Just select Take Me and go!

Take Me, while not a Netflix Original (it is only "Presented By Netflix"), is a home run for all the parties concerned. This whimsical tale of a simulated kidnapping gone very, very wrong is probably the first film to truly pull off this motif since 1986's Ruthless People or 1988's A Fish Called Wanda. »

Porgs Really Freaked Out Star Wars 8 Star John Boyega

21 hours ago

Long before the Porgs were revealed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there had been rumors that there are other creatures on Ahch-To, which took care of the planet. And there were even rumors that these creatures didn't like Rey, since she wasn't invited, and she has to prove herself worthy of being there. After getting our first glimpse at these creatures, there still isn't much that has been confirmed about them. In a new interview, John Boyega reveals that while Porgs are cute, they are also "freaky," especially when bunched together in a group. Here's what the actor had to say about these Porgs.

"I just remember doing some stuff and seeing a lot of Porgs around. And they are interesting, but for me, I had a love/hate relationship with them. They're very, very cute, but when you put them in a bunch, in holes, on the Millennium Falcon, »

Whedon's Original Justice League Opening Was Too Funny for Warner Bros.

21 hours ago

As Warner Bros.' Justice League enters its second week in theaters, new details have surfaced about the opening scene, and how it was originally conceived as much more comedic. If you haven't yet seen Justice League, there will be some Spoilers below, but actor Holt McCallany revealed in a new interview that the first few minutes that he appears in where much funnier than what made it to the screen, as conceived by Justice League reshoots director Joss Whedon. Unfortunately, the scene that Joss Whedon wrote had to be reconceived, per request of the studio. Here's what he had to say below.

"I love Joss Whedon. My scene with Batman was originally conceived as a comedic scene. That's how Joss wrote it, and that's how we shot it. I thought it came out great, but the studio felt it would be a mistake to open the film with a completely comedic scene, »

Joss Whedon Is Still Directing Batgirl, But That Could Change

22 November 2017 5:05 PM, PST

Earlier today, just before Hollywood gets ready to shut down for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, an intriguing report surfaced that claimed Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Batgirl project would no longer have director Joss Whedon at the helm, but it seems that's not true. That report claimed Warner Bros. made the decision "months ago" not to bring Joss Whedon back for Batgirl, after the Justice League reshoots went on far too long, with a controversial letter written by the director's ex-wife reportedly playing a factor in the studio's "decision" to remove him from Batgirl. However, that initial report from a website dubbed Super Bro Movies has been taken down, while another report citing sources close to the production reveal Joss Whedon is still on board to direct Batgirl.

The report stated that Joss Whedon is currently working on the script for this Batgirl movie and that he is still in fact attached to direct. »

Cheech and Chong Almost Met Jason in Friday the 13th Crossover Movie

22 November 2017 4:15 PM, PST

Throughout the history of the Friday the 13th franchise, some strange things have happened to Jason. And some even stranger things have been proposed. Some of them cool, some of them weird and some of them flat out baffling. This could have been any one of those things, depending on how it went. As revealed by Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives director Tom McLoughlin, a Jason vs. Cheech and Chong movie could have happened in the late 80s/early 90s.

The director was recently a guest on the Post Mortem podcast. During the conversation, Tom McLoughlin reveals that he was approached to do another Friday the 13th movie. At first, the eventual Freddy vs. Jason movie was pitched, but he didn't feel that was a real possibility. Here's what he had to say about it.

"[Frank Mancuso Jr.] wanted me to do another film after we did Jason [Lives]...And I said, »

James Franco Recreated 30 Minutes of The Room for Disaster Artist

22 November 2017 3:44 PM, PST

James Franco is out promoting The Disaster Artist movie and he has revealed that they recreated 30-minutes worth of scenes from Tommy Wiseau's The Room. That had to have been a massive undertaking, but in the scenes that we've seen so far, it doesn't look like Franco held back at all in preparation for The Disaster Artist. The movie has been gaining critical praise and early screenings have been overwhelmingly positive. It's pretty amazing that James Franco has pulled off a movie about one of the best/worst movies of all time.

In an early screening for The Disaster Artist at London's Prince Charles Cinema, better known as "The Home of the Room," James Franco revealed that there is a lot more shot-for-shot footage of The Room that didn't make it into The Disaster Artist, which is mind boggling. Franco and crew must have had to watch Tommy Wiseau »

Smallfoot Trailer Turns the Bigfoot Legend Upside Down

22 November 2017 3:24 PM, PST

Have you ever wanted to see Channing Tatum and LeBron James voice animated Yeti in a movie about friendly Bigfoot creatures? Then you're in luck! Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Smallfoot, which promises exactly that and a whole lot more. This animated flick looks to flip around the whole Bigfoot legend, with the help of quite a few famous people. The trailer itself is pretty charming and is heavy on the Tatum, in addition to sporting some very polished animation.

The Smallfoot trailer opens up with a man climbing up the side of a mountain, with some voiceover telling a tale of a creature steeped in legend. Then, the man comes face-to-face with a Yeti and we realize that this story is being told from the perspective of the Yeti, not the human. At this point, we move to Channing Tatum's character, who's sharing the tale »

New Star Wars Trilogy Enters Early Stages of Development

22 November 2017 3:05 PM, PST

While we have no idea what Star Wars 10 will bring, Rian Johnson has broken his silence about the new Star Wars trilogy that he is set to helm, stating that he is in the early stages of the development process. It was announced a few weeks ago that Johnson was going to be getting his own Star Wars trilogy and fans have been left to wonder just what exactly the director is going to do and what story he's going to tell. While we seem to be pretty far away from learning what the new trilogy will be about, Rian Johnson's enthusiasm for the project is visibly hard for him to contain.

At a press event for The Last Jedi in Mexico, Rian Johnson spoke about his Star Wars trilogy and revealed where he is in the planning stage. The director also explained why he was excited to take »

X-Men: Dark Phoenix to Brutally Kill Off a Major Character?

22 November 2017 2:41 PM, PST

X-Men: Dark Phoenix may be killing off a major character from the franchise in a pretty brutal way. The Dark Phoenix Saga is not only one of the most beloved X-Men storylines, but it's one of the most iconic Marvel Comics stories ever. Period. And adapting it for the big screen was completely botched in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. But next year's X-Men: Dark Phoenix is going to take another crack at it and, at the very least, it sounds like the movie won't pull any punches.

Warning: possible spoilers ahead for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. A new report claims that long-time franchise producer and writer Simon Kinberg, who makes his directorial debut with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, is going to show the full range of Jean Grey's Phoenix powers in the movie. In order to do so, he's going to have her kill off one of the main character's that's »

12 Strong Trailer #2 Puts Chris Hemsworth on the Front Lines of War

22 November 2017 2:04 PM, PST

With the Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, Warner Bros. Pictures has released the second trailer for 12 Strong, based on the declassified true story of the Horse Soldiers, the first group of soldiers sent into Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. While there is not necessarily a direct correlation between these soldiers at the Thanksgiving holiday, the trailer opens with a brief segment that features bits of footage with the messages, "Thankful for home," "Thankful for freedom" and "Thankful for family" before the trailer begins.

On our darkest day, they were our greatest hope. 12 Strong is set in the harrowing days following 9/11 when a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. Their mission takes them to the harsh mountainous landscape of Afghanistan, as they try to convince Northern »

Happy Death Day Slashes Past $100 Million at the Box Office

22 November 2017 1:33 PM, PST

Blumhouse's Happy Death Day has passed the $100 million mark worldwide and is continuing to earn money. Directed by Christopher Landon, Happy Death Day is the third original movie from Blumhouse in 2017. It joins blockbuster movies Split and Get Out, which have grossed $278.3 million and $253.4 million, respectively, worldwide. The latter has received five Independent Spirit Awards nominations. A lot has been said about box office woes this year, but some movies have been able to break through and earn some major profits, Happy Death Day now being one of them.

One of the biggest stories in the entertainment industry this year besides the stories of sexual misconduct has been the dismal year at the box office. Variety dubbed it "officially the worst in over a decade," while others claim that it's been the worst year at the box office in over 2 decades. While there have been some success stories, the horror »
