Fans Either Totally Love or Totally Hate The Last Jedi

1 hour ago

Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi has finally hit theaters and it might be the most divisive Star Wars movie to ever hit the theaters. Social media is torn with some fans absolutely loving the movie while others are calling it a flaming pile of excrement and a stain on the Star Wars franchise. It's hard when a franchise has such intense followers to please everybody and Rian Johnson took some major risks that either fans love or hate. There are literally gripes about every inch of the movie as well as praise and it's all a bit confusing.

One particularly angry fan took to Twitter to show off a picture of a Star Wars shirt on fire after watching The Last Jedi. The latest installment clearly broke the man's heart and he doesn't know what to do with himself. However, another moviegoer had the opposite reaction and had to »

Dustin Hoffman Accused of Exposing Himself to a Teen, Assaulting More Women

9 hours ago

The sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood have not let up since the Harvey Weinstein scandal rocked (and continues to rock) the entertainment industry. The Me Too movement gained momentum in early October and since then, many women and men have come forward to share their experiences with sexual misconduct at the hands of many powerful men in the industry, including Dustin Hoffman. Three women previously came forward and alleged that Hoffman had groped them and sexually assaulted them, but Dustin Hoffman seemed to come out of the ordeal relatively unscathed until John Oliver took him to task in front of a studio audience for an anniversary screening of Wag the Dog.

Variety reports that three more women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Dustin Hoffman. The first woman, Cori Thomas, was 16-years old when Hoffman came out of the bathroom and dropped his towel while she waited »

Ocean's Eight Poster Lines Up an Epic Cast of Thieves

9 hours ago

The first poster for Ocean's Eight is here. It's hard to think of a better heist movie than Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven, which spawned two sequels and made a boatload of money at the box office. Warner Bros. is looking to keep the franchise going with the female-driven Ocean's Eight. Now, the studio has unveiled the first poster for the movie, which leans into the stacked, all-female cast, led by Sandra Bullock.

While we haven't seen any footage from Ocean's Eight just yet, this poster offers a rather reassuring first look. The poster is very sleek and features a whole lot of red. Sprinkled in with that red is the eight, core female stars of the movie, who are led by Sandra Bullock, who serves as the connective tissue to the other Ocean's movies, as the sister of Danny Ocean (George Clooney). In a recent interview with EW, Bullock »

Fox Deal Gives Disney Princesses a Bunch of New Recruits

9 hours ago

News of Disney acquiring 21st Century Fox has been sending shockwaves throughout the entertainment industry since reports began to surface nearly a month ago. And now it's official, which means that the Disney princesses have to make room in the castle for some brand-new princesses that are moving in from Fox. Many fans have focused more on the expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and whether or not Deadpool will retain his brutal verbal skills over at the House of Mouse, so the new princesses have flown under the radar. But the time is right to recognize the new Disney royalty recruits.

Though not a traditional princess, Alien's Ellen Ripley should be allowed in just for being a kick ass hero, a new kind of gritty princess that isn't scared to get her hands dirty or fire some blasters. She can hang out with Princess Leia and Captain Phasma when there's nothing pressing going on. »

48 Hours Remake Is Happening with Good Time Directors

10 hours ago

Like it or not, another 80s classic is getting the remake treatment. 48 Hours, the Eddie Murphy action/comedy that kickstarted his film career, is the latest movie to succumb to Hollywood's current obsession with making what's old new again. Though, there are some talented filmmakers behind this one. Good Time directing duo Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie have been tapped to helm the 80s classic remake for Paramount.

There's no word on how soon Paramount wants to get this remake of 48 Hours in front of cameras, but the creative team sounds like it's firmly in place already. Josh Safdie and Ronald Bronstein, who co-write Good Time together, are handling scripting duties, with Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show) also working the script. Three can be a crowd, but it's been more common to have quite a few writers on board big movies these days. Chernin Entertainment, the production company behind the »

Wonder Woman Fans Protest Director's Golden Globes Snub

10 hours ago

Awards season is in full swing and the Golden Globes nominations were recently revealed. Trailing perhaps only the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes is one of the biggest awards ceremonies of the year. And they totally ignored director Patty Jenkins for her work on Wonder Woman. Now, a fan petition has been started in order to try and get this changed. Will it work? Probably not, but it shows just how strongly fans feel about Wonder Woman.

The petition, started on Care2, as of this writing, has 7,716 signatures. Granted, the nominees are pretty much set in stone at this point, so it's not likely that anything will come of this effort, but director Patty Jenkins certainly seems deserving of a nomination for Wonder Woman and a lot of fans things so as well. Here's what the petition has to say about it.

Did Gwyneth Paltrow Drop a Big Avengers 4 Spoiler?

10 hours ago

It looks like Gwyneth Paltrow may have just given away a pretty big spoiler for Avengers 4. Until the very end of Spider-Man: Homecoming this year, it had been a while since Pepper Potts had actually appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But she's poised to return in Avengers 4 and it doesn't look like it's going to be business as usual for Tony Stark's main squeeze. We're (probably) going to see Pepper like we've never seen her before.

Warning: possible spoilers for Avengers 4 ahead. Gwyneth Paltrow is quite active on social media and, since she's been filming Avengers 4 lately, that means she's been posting to her various social platforms from the set. Recently, she posted a couple of photos that seem innocuous enough, at least at first glance, but they're actually quite revealing. If you look closely, Paltrow is wearing a motion capture suit. Why would a character who normally walks »

Just last week it was announced that the Ataribox would be available for pre-order today, however if you were hoping to purchase one, you will have to wait a bit longer. Atari has just announced that preorders for their upcoming highly anticipated console are delayed, as development is taking longer than expected.

The Rock Wants to Run for President in 2024

11 hours ago

President Rock is a becoming a real thing that could very seriously happen. Last year, Dwayne Johnson teased that a career in politics could be in his future. Specifically, he flirted with the idea of a potential run for the White House in the future. Now he's done flirting with the idea, as he says he will "100% consider" running for office in 2024. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.

"I couldn't do both...Realistically, as we go into 2018, when you look at my slate as we're developing and shooting into 2019 and 2020, the slate goes deep into 2021, so it feels like the realistic consideration would be 2024."

Dwayne Johnson is currently promoting his upcoming movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. One of the many major projects he has lined up over the next few years. For that reason, it's not realistic to assume that he could run »

The FCC Has Killed Off Net Neutrality, What Happens Next?

14 hours ago

After 2 years, net neutrality is now dead after the FCC voted 3-2 to repeal today. the Federal Communications Commission approved a measure to remove tough net neutrality rules that Barack Obama put in place. Those "tough" rules prevented internet service providers from messing with services like throttling and blocking traffic and offering expensive upgrades to unlock sections of the internet. Republicans in charge of the FCC stand to make a lot of extra money now that the rules and regulations have been thrown out the window. Welcome to a world where you'll pay a lot of money for various packages of the internet.

The news comes after an evacuation took place right before the vote was to happen. As FCC Chairman Ajit Pai was in the middle of giving his comment on the net neutrality proposal, someone handed him a note. He quickly said that on advice of security, the »

Disney Now Owns All of Star Wars, What Does That Mean?

15 hours ago

Could we finally see the original Star Wars trilogy, in its original form, released in high definition? Disney has officially purchased Fox for more than $52 billion. This move is going to change the entertainment landscape moving forever and, in total, the deal is valued at $66 billion. There are a lot of moving pieces with a deal of this size and it still needs to be approved by antitrust regulators, but assuming that it is approved, there are some major things at play. For one, Disney now owns all of the rights to Star Wars.

Disney purchased all of Lucasfilm in 2012 for more than $4 billion, but that only included everything that Lucasfilm controlled. George Lucas made the original Star Wars for Fox and the studio was granted the rights to Star Wars: A New Hope, in perpetuity. That was something Disney couldn't get with their purchase of Lucasfilm. So any theatrical re-releases, »

Deadpool Will Stay R-Rated, Disney Considering Other R-Rated Marvel Movies

15 hours ago

Disney's Bob Eiger went on ABC's Good Morning America (also owned by Disney) to discuss the recent merger with 21st Century Fox. The news has been rumored for weeks, but it is now confirmed and many Marvel fans outside of the McU are scared at what might happen to the gritty movies including Deadpool and the recently released Logan. Deadpool was the first R-rated superhero movie to come out and decimate that box office and Logan followed suit, but left the vulgar jokes behind. Critics and fans applauded Fox for having the guts to step up and make the R-rated movies as well as the success that both movies saw at the box office. Now that Disney owns them, will they get sanitized?

Bob Eiger revealed that Disney is mulling over the possibility of an R-rated division of Marvel, which would be out of character for the Mouse House. Eiger »

New Deadpool 2 Poster Arrives as Wade Wilson Gets Banned from Disneyland

16 hours ago

As Ryan Reynolds is often known to do, he shared two unique Deadpool 2 images on social media today. The first is a banner for the highly-anticipated sequel, and the second is his reaction to the Disney-Fox merger. The poster is done in the style of Michelangelo's classic 16th Century painting "The Creation of Adam," which depicts God reaching out to touch the first man, Adam. Thankfully, the Merc With the Mouth wasn't entirely faithful to that painting, since he kept his maroon costume on instead of going nude, like Adam, and instead of reaching out to touch God, he's literally sticking his finger in the barrel of a gun wielded by Cable (Josh Brolin). Here's what the actor had to say about this new artwork, in his traditionally punny way.

"Some might call this creation a masterpiece, but to me it's just well hung art to be shared with the world. »

X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool Officially Join the McU

16 hours ago

For years, Marvel fans have hoped that somehow Disney would find a way to get the rights back to the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises so that they could be included in the McU. Disney has now purchased most of 21st Century Fox in a deal valued at $66 billion, which includes all of 20th Century Fox. As part of that, Disney has given Marvel fans their wish as the X-Men and Fantastic Four can officially join the McU now.

There's a whole lot more to this deal, but as far as many Marvel fans are concerned, this is the best part of the whole thing. Marvel Studios didn't start making movies until Iron Man came out in 2008. At that time, Marvel had sold off the movie and TV rights to many other studios. Over the years, Kevin Feige and the brass at Marvel Studios have managed to get most of the lingering rights back, »
