Pacific Rim Crossover with Godzilla and King Kong May Happen

1 hour ago

After years of waiting, Pacific Rim 2 is finally on the way. The movie is in the can and is set for release next year. If all goes well, it won't stop there either. Director Steven S. DeKnight has been talking a bit about future plans for the franchise, which are quite big. Literally. As it turns out, there's been discussions with Universal about having Pacific Rim crossover with their MonsterVerse, which includes Godzilla and King Kong. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I won't say there's an Easter Egg but there's been a lot of discussion about that possibility [of crossing over]. Look I think it would be fantastic to have the Pacific Rim universe join Legendary's Monster Universe, it seems like a natural step. And part of the big overall plan after the third movie we've talked about is that could happen, it's always a possibility. It's by far not »

Jason Momoa Goes Under the Sea in Latest Look at Aquaman

2 hours ago

It's been over five months since Aquaman started shooting in Australia, and while it remains to be seen when filming will wrap, a new video from the set has surfaced alongside more set photos, which tease some new armor for the title character. First off, there is a brief video from a local Australian news station, which shows Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and his queen Mera (Amber Heard) walking on the beach which is populated by a number of beach goers, none of whom seem to pay any attention to this couple, despite their rather colorful and elaborate outfits. While Mera's scaly green bodysuit is the same we've seen before, Aquaman's armor is brand new.

In the first part of this set video, which 7 News Gold Coast reports was shot in Currumbin, Australia, Aquaman is seen standing knee-deep in water on the shore, while forcefully grabbing Mera's arm. We can't hear what is being said, »

The Snowman Director Knows Why His Movie Sucks

5 hours ago

One would have thought that a movie produced by Martin Scorsese, directed by the guy who made Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with a cast that includes Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson, would have turned out to be one of the better movies of the fall season. That's not the case. The Snowman, by most accounts, is a complete disaster. Director Tomas Alfredson is already going on the defensive, doing his best to explain why this dumpster fire isn't his fault. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.

"Our shoot time in Norway was way too short. We didn't get the whole story with us and when we started cutting we discovered that a lot was missing. It's like when you're making a big jigsaw puzzle and a few pieces are missing so you don't see the whole picture."

According to Tomas Alfredson, "It happened very abruptly, »

Breathe Review: Claire Foy Shines in Uplifting Tearjerker

5 hours ago

Motion capture legend Andy Serkis steps behind the camera for Breathe. His directorial debut is not a special effects juggernaut, but a warm and uplifting film about love conquering tragedy. Breathe is the remarkable true story of Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield). He transcended debilitating paralysis with the steadfast support of his loving wife, Diana (Claire Foy). Their commitment to each other, and making life better for those similarly afflicted, is a joy to behold on screen.

The story begins in the late 1950's with Robin Cavendish meeting Diana Blacker at a summer party. A tea merchant with moderate means, Cavendish was smitten by Blacker's beauty. She was equally besotted by the handsome bachelor with a big smile and playful nature. Their whirlwind romance resulted in a quick marriage, much to the concern of her twin brothers (Tom Hollander); who had hoped for a wealthier suitor.

Meet Admiral Holdo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

6 hours ago

With Star Wars: The Last Jedi arriving in less than two months, the veil of secrecy is starting to be lifted, with a new image surfacing on The Ellen Show earlier this week of Laura Dern's new character, Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo. While the actress couldn't reveal any details about her character, she did share an amusing and embarrassing story from her time on the set. Here's what the actress had to say, and what director Rian Johnson discovered when he was editing the film.

"I did have the greatest experience of my life. I felt like I was 7 years old again. Rian Johnson even keeps telling this really embarrassing story, our amazing director, about how when he got in the editing room and I do have weaponry in a scene, I have said that, he literally heard me making sounds. Because I had only done it in my room in childhood, »

Hellboy Rounds Out Its Cast with Three More Actors

6 hours ago

With Lionsgate's Hellboy gearing up for production, three new actors have come aboard, playing characters from the original Hellboy comics that wernen't featured in the original movies from director Guillermo del Toro. Sophie Okonedo, Brian Gleeson and Alistair Petrie have all signed on for the reboot, with Okonedo playing Lady Hatton, Gleeson playing Lord Adam Galen and Alistair Petrie playing the iconic wizard Merlin. It isn't known how large or small their roles may be in this reboot, but it's clear that this project is taking a much different approach than the first two movies.

Lady Hatton was featured in the 2007 comic Hellboy: The Wild Hunt, a resident seer at the Osiris Club, an English secret society dedicated to solving supernatural mysteries. Lord Adam Glaren is another member of the Osiris Club, with Merlin the same mythical wizard from the King Arthur legend. In the Hellboy comics, he meets »

Brad Pitt Is the Least Profitable Actor in Hollywood

6 hours ago

It's hard to gauge who the most popular star in the world is, and by all accounts, that person is probably from India, not Hollywood. But there is no denying that Brad Pitt is one of the biggest names on the planet. And you'd expect that he'd turn more of a profit at the box office. But as it turns out, a new study shows he's the least profitable star in Hollywood.

He's not alone. A few other big name actors failed to turn a pretty penny when it came to their movies over the last thirty years. Analysts from PartyCasino, a unit of the Gvc gaming group, have done an intensive break down and study, which proves that Brad Pitt only brings in ten cents for every dollar spent on one of his movies. Coming in behind him is Johnny Depp, who only manages to pull in twenty cents for every dollar. »

Indiana Jones Voted Greatest Movie Character of All Time

7 hours ago

There have been a ton of great movie characters in the history of film, but only one can be the best. According to a new poll, we now know who people feel that character is. Harrison Ford's iconic, whip cracking, snake fearing adventurer Indiana Jones was recently named the greatest movie character of all time, according to a poll conducted by Total Film Magazine. Jones is someone who should definitely place in the top 5, but coming out on top of a poll like this is pretty impressive.

The poll also features another iconic Harrison Ford character, with Han Solo coming in third place. Though, it's easy to imagine that he could have just as easily taken the top spot. Batman, with no particular Batman being mentioned, came in second place. The first female character on the list is Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley from the Alien franchise, who placed fourth. »

X-Men 7 and Captain Marvel Will Share the Skrulls as Villains?

7 hours ago

The Skrulls aren't coming quietly. It was previously announced that the Skrulls will be the main villains in Captain Marvel, with Brie Larson's title character fighting off the intergalactic threat. A new report has surfaced that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will also be using the same villains.

The Marvel universe has no shortage of dastardly aliens that it can pit its superheroes against. But nothing quite compares to the Skrulls. They are perhaps the most notorious of outer space bad guys, who haven't shown up on screen thus far. But that's about to change in a substantial way.

X-Men 7 is planning to use the Skrulls in one key action set piece that will apparently steal the show. The scene takes place at a Un building where Professor X, played by the returning James McAvoy, will be giving a heartfelt speech on Mutants. He will be joined there by Michael Fassbender »

Thor: Ragnarok Features Marvel's First Nude Scene

8 hours ago

Marvel movies are not known for their steamy love scenes, and there is actually very little in the way of romance when it comes to most of these superhero adventures. So leave it to Thor: Ragnarok to bring Marvel it's first nude scene, which is played for laughs more than anything. Don't get too excited, either. The one most Marvel fans want to see in the buff stays mostly clothed, giving this 'groundbreaking' moment to a brother of another color.

Yes, that's right. It's Hulk who shucks off his clothes. Spoiler alert, we know. And this comes amongst an abundance of very attractive actors, with Chris Hemsworth winning a few 'sexiest man alive' awards in his day. But the God of Thunder stays mostly in his armor throughout the duration of the latest Thor sequel, which has garnered a 100% fresh rating on the Rotten Tomatoes meter.

Tarantino Knew About Weinstein's Behavior for Decades, Regrets Staying Silent

22 hours ago

After the numerous sexual harassment and assault allegations surfaced against Harvey Weinstein last week, many wondered how iconic filmmaker Quentin Tarantino would respond to these allegations, since Harvey Weinstein helped launch the director's career by releasing his breakout hit Pulp Fiction. Actress Amber Tamblyn released a brief statement last week from Quentin Tarantino, stating he has been, "stunned and heartbroken" about everything that has come to light, and that he would need a few more days to process his pain before addressing it further.

Now the filmmaker is speaking out, revealing that he has known about The Weinstein Company co-founder's sexual predatory behavior for several decades, saying he's ashamed he didn't take a stronger stand against Harvey Weinstein. Here's what the director had to say in a new interview with The New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, one of the journalists who broke the original story.

Nycc's Last Jedi Experience Video Takes Fans Inside Star Wars 8

22 hours ago

Earlier this month, Disney showcased Star Wars: The Last Jedi at New York Comic Con, with a special display where fans got to see a number of items from the movie, but these fans had no idea what they were really getting themselves into. A new video debuted today that showed how Disney and LucasFilm set up a number of hidden cameras throughout the area, with a few lucky fans getting singled out as "Resistance spies." What starts out as just your average convention display turns into an exciting interactive experience, with a few surprise appearances.

The behind-the-scenes crew is seen singling out a few fans in attendance at this display, when they're given quite the surprise, as a number of these displays post their photos, revealing that they're all "wanted" by the First Order. At that point, some of the Stormtroopers start combing the area looking for these wanted Resistance spies, »

What Scares David Fincher Most About Directing a Star Wars Movie?

22 hours ago

Can you imagine what a David Fincher Star Wars movie would look like? It turns out, Lucasfilm wanted to know, but it's never going to happen. That's right, David Fincher did indeed meet with Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy at one point about directing a Star Wars movie, but he passed on the opportunity because it scared him. Here's what he had to say about it.

"No, I talked to [producer Kathleen Kennedy] about that and look, it's a plum assignment. I don't know what's worse: being George Lucas on the set of the first one where everyone's going, 'Alderaan? What the hell is this?' Where everyone's making fun, but I can't imagine the kind of intestinal fortitude one has to have following up the success of these last two. That's a whole other level. One is that you have to endure the withering abuse of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, and the »

Shia Labeouf Gets Sent to Anger Management After Racist Run-In with Cops

23 hours ago

Back in July, actor Shia Labeouf was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in public in Savannah, Georgia. Labeouf has now just reached a plea agreement stemming from the arrest in Georgia, agreeing to undergo anger management counseling, as well as 30 days of mandatory drug counseling. The actor was arrested after getting angry in front of a restaurant and using foul language in front of families while drunk. A police officer walked up and asked him to leave the scene, but Shia Labeouf decided to get aggressive with the officer instead.

When the cop tried to arrest him, Labeouf got the wise idea to finally flee the scene, after the cop had asked him to leave several times, but apparently the damage had already been done. The actor took off in a sprint to a nearby hotel where he was arrested in the lobby while he continued to be "unruly" and shouting about paying taxes. »

Avengers 4 to Be Russo Brother's Final Marvel Movie?

19 October 2017 4:31 PM, PDT

Marvel's Avengers 4 will be the final Marvel Phase 3 movie. Phase 4 kicks off just a few months later with Spider-Man: Homecoming 2, set amid the aftermath of this epic story. Marvel has been quite tight-lipped about their plans for Marvel Phase 4, aside from confirming both Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, since even the other Phase 4 movie titles will serve as spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Today another interesting wrinkle was possibly unearthed, with Josh Brolin hinting in a new interview that the Russo Brothers may be done with the McU after Avengers 4.

Josh Brolin has been doing press for his new movie Only the Brave, where he revealed these new Avengers 4 details, and it may not be terribly surprising that the directors may want a break from the McU after this experience. The plan was originally to shoot both Avengers 3 and 4 back-to-back, but that was ultimately scrapped, »

Thor: Ragnarok Scores 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

19 October 2017 4:24 PM, PDT

Marvel is having themselves one heck of a year. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 crushed it at the box office this summer, and Spider-Man: Homecoming successfully brought a solo Spidey adventure to the McU, which also made a lot of money. Next up? Thor: Ragnarok, which looks to finally deliver a great solo Thor movie. The first round of reviews have just been released and, rather impressively, the movie has a 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes so far with 34 reviews counted. Here's what Variety had to say about it.

"Thor: Ragnarok is easily the best of the three Thor movies, or maybe I just think so because its screenwriters and I finally seem to agree on one thing: The Thor movies are preposterous."

Thus far, the Thor solo movies haven't been as great as many of the other solo movies in the McU, but people have always loved »
