Stephen King’s It: New Creepy Photos, Sequel Details, & Why This New Pennywise Is Terrifying
6 hours ago
The upcoming adaptation of the beloved novel It, written by the master of horror, Stephen King, has a lot of expectations weighing on it. Sure, the expectations may not amount to that of your average superhero flick these days, but as a classic novel, it has an ardent fan base. Plus, not only does the film have to live up to the spirit of the novel, it will forever be compared to the 1990s miniseries, which starred Tim Curry as the terrifying clown, Pennywise.
Already, there has been criticism of the look of the character by fans as it is, and many are skeptical that it will live up to the aforementioned expectations. But for those who have had doubts that the story would play out as effectively as the original book, rest assured that the film’s director, Andrés Muschietti (Mama) understands the material. First and foremost, a recent »

It seems that almost every day there is an event covered through that brings back the memories from the Boston Marathon Bombings. When the announcement came that Peter Berg was making a movie about the events on what happened in 2013 some people had reservations because they felt it was too soon for the people that went through the horror. Then Mark Wahlberg came on board and it seemed that if anyone was going to star in a movie about this event it had to be somebody from Boston that understood the complexity of making this movie. It would be the third time Mark Wahlberg would team up with director Peter Berg with the first two movies being Lone Survivor and Deep Water Horizon. This movie would be different though for Mark because this would be about the city he grew up in and the people that adore him. »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: James Gunn Thinks Michael Rooker Deserves An Oscar, Plus The Franchise's Future
9 hours ago
Just pause for a moment and consider that right now, as of today, we're on-track for a brand new Spider-Man movie, a full-on Justice League film just dropped a trailer, shooting is well-underway for Avengers: Infinity War, and by the end of the year, we're going to get an awesome Thor and Hulk super team-up... and yet, the one movie everyone is the most excited about: James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which hits theaters on 5 May 2017.
Wow, what a year to be a fanboy, amirite?
There's already a ton of press and media out there on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2; so today, let's focus on what we don't know. Sound good?
Last week we learned about the film's expected runtime and we got a glimpse of a fantastic new IMAX poster. This week, in an interview Fandango recently conducted with James Gunn, we learn »

Tomb Raider: First Look At Alicia Vikander As Lara Croft!
10 hours ago
Last year may not have been the huge video game movie success that we were all hoping for — between Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed, many were disappointed that Hollywood had once again swung for the fences and perhaps only ended up with a single. In short, the films didn’t do as well critically or commercially as they had hoped they would. However, that hasn’t stopped the momentum in Hollywood, as there are countless other video game projects in development.
Perhaps the highest profile film on the development, comes in the form of Tomb Raider, an adaptation of the recently-rebooted franchise, which sees a younger Lara Croft battling the elements and a host of enemies while stranded on an island. Taking on the role of the iconic character is Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander, who seems well-fitted for the role both in look and in acting talent. Some time ago, we »

Venom Standalone To Be R-Rated Flick Separate From The McU
11 hours ago
A few years back, Sony Pictures tried their hand at creating their own universe. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn’t just meant as a sequel to the first film, but a way to create an entire Sinister Six spinoff that could potentially lead into any other spinoffs. It was an ambitious plan, and sadly, it’s one that didn’t work out. As we know, Sony and Marvel Studios have since teamed up to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean they can’t create their own worlds separate from the McU. They do, after all, still have the film rights to all the characters in Spider-Man’s rogues gallery and beyond.
We’ve already seen steps like this taken in recent days. As we reported several days back, the studio has hired Thor: Ragnarok screenwriter to create a Black Cat and Silver Sable film, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming - Michael Keaton’s Vulture Has A Bone To Pick With Tony Stark
12 hours ago
In true Marvel Studios form, all the marketing for Spider-Man: Homecoming thus far has been primarily focused on the webslinger himself. And it makes sense. As we’ve said many times on the site before, Marvel is very much hero-focused, and one could make the argument that while this generally leads to boring villains, it also leads to pretty solid movies. But of course, behind every good superhero is a good villain, and in the case of Spider-Man: Homecoming, audiences will see the legend Michael Keaton take on the role of Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. The Vulture.
In the comics, Toomes, is an inventor who is screwed over by his business partner who handled the finances. Following the loss of his work, he turned to a life of crime, utilizing his special harness to pull off a series of robberies in good ol’ NYC. As is expected with these movies, »

The Zookeeper’s Wife: Director Niki Caro On Pairing Jessica Chastain With Animals
13 hours ago
It might not be surprising that Jessica Chastaine’s upcoming Holocaust drama The Zookeeper’s Wife was directed by a woman as much as it was directed by New Zealand filmmaker Niki Caro, who once again proves herself capable of working with an international cast on a scale that’s far bigger than her earlier films, including Whale Rider.
Adapted from the novel by Diane Ackerman, it stars Chastaine as Antonina Zabinska, wife of the zoologist and owner of the biggest zoo in Warsaw, Poland, which is devastated when the Nazis invade in 1939. Trying to make lemonade out of the lemons delivered to them by the Nazis liquidating their zoo, Antonina and her husband Jan (Johan Heldenbergh) come up with a plan to save the Jews from Warsaw who are being herded into ghettos, and being treated horribly. Turning the zoo into a pig farm, the couple begin to sneak »

Spider-Man: Homecoming - New Teaser Shows Off Brand New Spidey Tech, Trailer Hits Tomorrow!
14 hours ago
The last few days of last week may have been super-focused on Justice League. With each member of the league getting their own mini-teaser, all culminating in the first official trailer on Saturday (excluding the San Diego Comic-Con first look), it certainly stirred up a decent amount of conversation among fandom, positive or not (because, haters). But in true Marvel studio, the spotlight couldn’t be on the Justice League forever.
Late last week, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios released a few new posters for their upcoming film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first standalone film featuring Tom Holland as the titular Spider-Man. Now, earlier this Monday morning, the official Twitter account for the film teased a brand new teaser for the film’s upcoming trailer.
Check it out below!

Saban's Power Rangers Cast Lobbying For A Female Green Ranger
14 hours ago
In a very busy few weeks of popular films, Saban's Power Rangers hit theaters last Friday and did better than expected bringing in about $40.5 million, which still came second to the Disney juggernaut Beauty and the Beast which hauled in an additional $88 million domestically. The all new Power Rangers were able to connect to both an older generation that watched the 90's series Saban's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the younger crowd who has seen some of the newer incarnations of the team. We now know that the franchise is planning to try and make multiple film story arc, so obviously we are going to see some other familiar characters pop up. A green ranger maybe? Or how about a white ranger?
Before I go on with the topic at hand I would like to give a Spoiler Warning as I will be discussing some of the events of the film. »

The Walking Dead "Something They Need" Recap

"We are not monsters."
We hear the voices of Tara and Rick talking to each other. On the screen, we see a group of Alexandrians, locked and loaded, moving out. They are marching to a location with their guns drawn. As the conversation continues and the squad moves along, it is apparent what is occurring.
Tara is informing Rick of Oceanside: the all female community she spent time at earlier in the season.
While the Alexandrians prepare to meet Oceanside, Maggie is dealing with life back at Hilltop. She instructs members on gardening techniques while doing some planting of her own, all of which is being closely watched by Gregory. Later on, Gregory meets up with her while she's gardening, making small talk and saying he'll keep an eye out for walkers. With his knife in his hand and standing slightly behind a crouched Maggie, »

Motley Crue Biopic Finds Home At Netflix
19 hours ago
The Hollywood Reporter has come out with an update on the long gestating biopic on the 80's rock band Motley Crue, based on their New York Times Bestselling Book, The Dirt. They state that the project, originally started at Paramount Pictures, has found a new home at Netflix. Jeff Tremaine, director of the Jackass movies, is slated to direct. The band will be producers for the film.
Love them or hate them, Motley Crue have an interesting story to tell. From opening the book with an act that I cannot describe here apart from stating that Tommy Lee would need an umbrella, to details of the time Vince Neil was involved in a car accident that killed the passenger in the car with him, to Tommy Lee's home movies, and the break up and reunion of the band, if the movie finds a way to capture the essence of the book, »

21 hours ago
The WWE is ramping up promotion for their biggest show of the year, Wrestlemania. With that, they are using all the tools they have at their disposal to get the word out. One avenue has been Twitter, where the company has tweeted numerous Wrestlemania moments from the past 32 shows.
Matt and Jeff Hardy are currently the Ring of Honor Tag Team Champions after spending years in Impact Wrestling. During the last year of Dixie Carter's ownership of the company, the only major story that intrigued viewers was the character of "Broken" Matt Hardy and his battles with his brother Jeff, who he called Brother Nero. The duo had a fascinating match called The Final Deletion which is nothing like any »
