Hellboy Reboot Gets Deadpool Star Ed Skrein

10 hours ago

A report surfaced last week that revealed a number of Hellboy characters from the comics will be featured in the new Hellboy reboot, such as Abe Sapien, Alice Monaghan, played by the most recent casting addition, Sasha Lane, and Ben Daimio. Today we have word that Ed Skrein, who is coming off his villainous role as Ajax in last year's Deadpool, will play Major Ben Daimio, who is described as a "rugged military member" of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.). It's possible that Abe Sapien's casting will be just around the corner, as we get closer to a September production start.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that this B.P.R.D. character Ben Daimio can transform himself into a jaguar, when he's angered or when he's in pain. While Abe Sapien was featured in the original Hellboy movies, starring Ron Perlman and directed by Guillermo del Toro, »

Tour the Real Camp Crystal Lake This Friday the 13th

10 hours ago

There are some majorly iconic locations in the history of horror movies, but few can rival that of Camp Crystal Lake from the Friday the 13th franchise. Plus, that particular location has the added benefit of being a real place that actually exists. Though, only in the rarest of occasions is the general public allowed to visit. It just so happens that one of those occasions is happening later this year on October 13, 2017. As luck would have it, that is an actual Friday the 13th.

Though the real-life Camp Crystal Lake isn't actually named Camp Crystal Lake, the original Friday the 13th was filmed at an active Boy Scout camp named Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco. As reported by Bloody Disgusting, the folks at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco are opening their grounds for a special one day only event on Friday the 13th. So if you can make it to Hardwick, New Jersey and have »

Air Bud Director Admits He's Not a Fan of Dogs

11 hours ago

Air Bud is now officially 20-years old and can almost hit the bar, but director Charles Martin Smith won't be bringing a dog to a bar to celebrate. In a new interview celebrating 20 years of Air Bud, Smith admitted that he wasn't a "dog person." That's right, the man responsible for the movie where a real-life dog plays basketball has never owned a dog and admitted to not really liking them. Smith also admitted to never seeing any of the many sequels that Air Bud spawned.

Smith recently sat down with Newsweek to discuss Air Bud and its legacy to mark the 20th anniversary of the stone cold classic. But one of the most curious lines in the interview is when Smith is asked if he is a dog person. The director had this to say.

"I'm not a huge dog lover, no. I've never really owned dogs."

Dolph Lundgren Trains as Drago in Creed 2 Behind-The-Scenes Video

11 hours ago

It looks like a rematch more than three decades in the making is starting to really heat up. Sylvester Stallone has been teasing the return of Ivan Drago for Creed 2 over the last month or so and it is all but formally confirmed that Dolph Lundgren is going to be back. Now, the actor has shared a new video on Instagram that teases his training to get back in shape for his upcoming return to the Rocky franchise.

Dolph Lundgren is currently filming Aquaman, but he is still finding time to hit the gym and get back into proper Ivan Drago shape. The character first appeared in Rocky IV, which is generally considered to be one of the best movies in the franchise. Again, it seems like everyone involved is being a little cagey, despite their not-so-subtle social media activity, and they are hoping to make some big, formal announcement at some point. »

New Suburbicon Trailer: Matt Damon Sinks Into George Clooney's Dark Suburbia

12 hours ago

After the first Suburbicon trailer debuted last month, showcasing a blood-soaked Matt Damon, fans don't have to wait long for even more footage. An international trailer has surfaced today that shows how Gardner Lodge's life in a quiet and peaceful suburb is starting to slip away after a harrowing home invasion results in the death of his wife. As we can see here, all of Gardner's colleagues and friends extend practically identical sympathetic gestures towards him in this time of grieving.

Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns. The perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town's dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices. »

Hasselhoff Wants a Dark, Logan-Style Knight Rider Reboot

12 hours ago

We live in an era when seemingly nothing is sacred and Hollywood is doing their best to reboot everything that ever existed. David Hasselhoff is doing his best to capitalize on that, as he has been trying to get a Knight Rider reboot going that will see him return as Michael Knight once again. Now, the actor has revealed that he pitched the idea to director Robert Rodriguez and that he wants this new Knight Rider to be for him what Logan was for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine.

David Hasselhoff revealed his pitch to Cinema Blend recently and seems very determined to get things going. Even though NBC tried to reboot the show in 2008 with very little success, Hollywood seems to like the idea of bringing this show back from the dead. This proposed Knight Rider revival does seem like the kind of thing that could happen and, if we're being honest, »

Bohemian Rhapsody Movie Finds Freddie Mercury's Queen Bandmates

12 hours ago

It was announced last month that Bryan Singer (X-Men) will be directing the biopic on the band Queen entitled Bohemian Rhapsody. It had been previously announced in late 2016 that Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) will be portraying Queen front man Freddie Mercury. Now the rest of the band has finally been revealed. Queen fans have been waiting years for this movie, and it's really moving forward with production rumored to start next month.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed today that Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse), Joe Mazzello (The Social Network), and Gwilym Lee (Midsomer Murders) will join Rami Malek to portray Queen in Bohemian Rhapsody. Mazzello is set to play Queen's quiet bassist John Deacon while Hardy will play drummer/singer Roger Taylor and Lee will play guitarist/singer Brian May.

Aladdin Gets Homeland Star as Jafar's Henchman Hakim

13 hours ago

Just a few weeks after we reported that The Mummy remake star Marwan Kenzari is in talks to play the villainous Jafar in Disney's Aladdin reboot, it seems the studio has also found the villain's right-hand man. Turkish actor Numan Acar is in talks to portray Hakim, who serves as the "head of the guards" for Jafar in this live-action remake. There was a guard character named Hakim, voiced by Frank Welker, in the original Aladdin movie, but it seems he will be a much more substantial character in this live-action movie.

Deadline broke the news of this casting, but their report did not include Marwan Kenzari as part of the cast, so perhaps his deal has not been finalized at this time. Numan Acar will be joined by Will Smith, who voices The Genie, Mena Massoud as the title character Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and Nasim Pedrad as Mara, »

Knight Rider Movie Happening with John Cena and Kevin Hart?

13 hours ago

Another day in Hollywood, another reboot in the works. This time it is the David Hasselhoff classic series Knight Rider that is going to get the reboot treatment, but it is heading to the big screen as opposed to being done as a TV series. And, despite Hasselhoff's desire to bring Knight Rider back in a gritty way, it looks like this is going to be done in the vein of 21 Jump Street, which is exactly what the man who starred in the original series doesn't want.

The news comes courtesy of Screen Rant, who report that the Weinstein Company is looking at doing a Knight Rider movie, with John Cena (Sisters) being eyed to star as Michael Knight, and Kevin Hart (Ride Along) being eyed to voice the intelligent car Kitt. As it stands, neither of them have officially signed on, but the studio is "interested in getting them on board. »

Trump Watches Eclipse Without Glasses, Ignores Fake News About Safety

14 hours ago

We've been hearing news about the total solar eclipse for weeks now and it has been made abundantly clear by everybody from optometrists to 5-year olds: Do not stare at the sun during the eclipse. Donald Trump, not one to listen to the nasty "fake news" media set out to be a true hero this morning by bravely staring into the sun without protective eyewear. Say what you want about Trump dodging the Vietnam War; this may be the ultimate sign of bravery.

According to USA Today, Trump stared into the eclipse for a bit without protective eyewear on a balcony of the White House before aides started yelling, "don't look!" Everybody knows not to stare directly at the eclipse, but when you're as brave as Trump is, you don't need any protective goggles that make you look "sad" or like a total "loser." In the end, Melania and 11-year »

Zombie Hitler Is Coming in Dead Snow 3

15 hours ago

With all of the talk of the alt-right movement and Nazis in the news, director Tommy Wirkola may have coincidentally picked the perfect time to announce one of his next movies. What better way to handle such a thing than the third installment of a franchise that sees humans fighting Nazi zombies? That's right. Wirkola has announced that he fully intends to make Dead Snow 3, and it is going to feature a zombie Hitler.

The Norwegian filmmaker is currently promoting his latest movie, the sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday, which recently dropped on Netflix. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Tommy Wirkola revealed that Dead Snow 3 is definitely in the cards, but it won't happen for a few years. After two previous movies showcasing Nazi zombies, he feels it's finally time to bring out the big guns and thaw out Adolf Hitler in zombie form. Here's what he had to say about it. »

Watch Foo Fighters Rickroll Tokyo with Real-Life Rick Astley Appearance

16 hours ago

The Foo Fighters Rickrolled the audience at Tokyo's Summer Sonic Festival when they brought Rick Astley up on stage to perform his classic pop anthem, "Never Gonna Give You Up," in the style of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. As it turns out, Astley was also booked to appear at the festival earlier in the day when the Foos approached him about Rickrolling the audience. Astley came out to the stage to a riotous crowd who knew exactly what they were in store for when Foo Fighters' front man Dave Grohl announced the pop singer's name, but what they got was a little different.

The video of the performance comes to us via Aaron Tan's YouTube channel and features a very enthusiastic Astley stroll on to the stage while Grohl introduces him and says, "I just met (Astley) two minutes ago." Grohl then launches into the chord progression »

New Star Wars 8 Dialogue Revealed, Force Friday 2 Poster Arrives

17 hours ago

Force Friday 2017 is just around the corner and that means all of this year's new Star Wars toys are getting ready to officially hit shelves. That also means we are going to learn some things about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, even if Disney and Lucasfilm are doing their best to keep everything under wraps. At the very least, they'd prefer the toys not be revealed until Force Friday, which is taking place on September 1 this year. However, some of the upcoming toys have made their way online and they reveal some potential dialogue from Star Wars: The Last Jedi for Kyle Ren and Supreme Leader Snoke.

Fan site Star Wars News Net got ahold of some TV spots and photos that show off some of the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi toys. Probably the most significant is the Force Link Band, which will play dialogue for characters when placed near the figures. »

More Deadpool 2 Photos Tease Return of Juggernaut and Young Cable

17 hours ago

Production on Deadpool 2 is back up and running following the tragic death of a stunt performer last week. With that, some new set photos have been making their way online. Thought they may look a bit innocuous, they also may be hinting at the return of a very powerful, fan-favorite mutant in Deadpool 2. If we follow the evidence, it looks like Cain Marko, better known as Juggernaut, may be returning to the X-Men movie universe.

The folks over at Omega Underground have managed to piece together some evidence that suggests the super strong mutant is going to be back in Deadpool 2. It starts with actor Jack Kesy. He was cast in the movie a while back as an unnamed villain. It now seems like that villain is going to be Juggernaut. Some set photos of his stunt double recently surfaced online that showed him wearing a motion »

Avengers 4 Set Photos Move the Action to Japan

18 hours ago

We reported last month that there will be an Avengers 4 shoot in Tokyo, which is rumored to be the setting of a wedding. Over the weekend, new photos surfaced from the set that show some of these Tokyo scenes are being filmed in Atlanta. Unfortunately, these new photos don't showcase any cast members on the set, or divulge any story details, but the imagery we get on this set makes it clear that this area is being dressed and shot for Japan. But with no concrete shooting details, it's difficult to glean any story details from these photos alone.

These latest photos come from Atlanta Filming Twitter, which first reported on the Japanese production shift last month. There was also a casting call in mid-July in which the studio was seeking Japanese actors to play Yakuza gangsters, along with Japanese cafe patrons. That shoot was to take place over a »

What The Porgs Sound Like in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

18 hours ago

'Do it! Do it!' Are the Porgs yelling at Rey to learn her Jedi skills faster, or taunting Chewbacca to eat them in a hilarious scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Perhaps they are channeling Shia Labeouf from his infamous viral informercial. However you want to slice it at this stage in the game, it's confirmed that the Porgs have some form of communication that sounds an awful lot like the English language. Their freak calls also sound very stressed, and could give you the sweats or night terrors.

We now know what the cute little aquatic bird creatures in Star Wars 8 sound like thanks to some toys found lingering in the wild before their proper introduction to store shelves this September as part of Force Friday. If you didn't think the Porg was just another coy marketing scheme by Disney and Lucasfilm, you might be proven right here. »

Justice League Comic-Con Trailer Gets the Lego Treatment

20 August 2017 5:22 PM, PDT

One of the biggest panels of Comic-Con last month was the star-studded Warner Bros. panel, where the studio unveiled a new Justice League trailer that was received quite well by fans and critics alike. The brilliant minds at Lego Motion Studios decided to put their own spin on it, debuting a new Lego version of the trailer, and just in case you want to watch it again, we have included the actual Justice League Comic-Con trailer below the Lego version. As you can see, it's quite accurate, and rather hilarious as well.

The Lego trailer surfaced on Lego Motion Studios YouTube, which painstakingly recreates all of this footage with Lego mini-figures. The footage even puts a Lego spin on some of the content, such as a newspaper that showed the death of Superman, with the newspaper revealed as "The Lego News" and the headline reading that he was, "The Greatest Lego Hero Ever. »

Kingsman 2 TV Spot Brings Harry and Eggsy Together

20 August 2017 5:00 PM, PDT

With just over a month left until Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters, 20th Century Fox has released a new TV spot for this highly-anticipated action sequel. We reported last week that the movie is aligning itself with tomorrow's total solar eclipse, with the studio claiming in a satirical video released last week that the eclipse was actually orchestrated by their marketing team to hype up the movie. Now we have word that the studio will also be releasing the final trailer tomorrow, in conjunction with the eclipse, and they are even hosting a live viewing party on their Facebook page, if you aren't in the path of this eclipse.

The TV spot surfaced on the 20th Century Fox YouTube today, which gives us a glimpse at the nefarious villain Poppy (Julianne Moore) but perhaps the most memorable moment is at the end, when we see the presumed-dead Harry Hart »
