John Cena And Kevin Hart Are Being Considered For A Knight Rider Reboot

1 hour ago

It was just yesterday that we shared David Hasselhoff’s dream to star in a Knight Rider movie in the style of Logan, an idea he pitched to Robert Rodriquez while posing for a selfie. I said there was no way in hell that movie was ever going to happen, but in doing so I made the movie gods angry. Now, it looks like a Knight Rider movie is taking shape after all, just not in the way Hasselhoff envisioned.

Screen Rant reports that the Weinstein Company is looking to reboot Knight Rider, and they’re hoping to secure John Cena and Kevin Hart to star. The film would be a comedy not unlike 21 Jump Street, with Cena playing Hasselfhoff’s classic role, Michael Knight, and Hart voicing his car, Kitt. No one has been officially cast, but Screen Rant says this is the direction the Weinstein Company is looking to go with the reboot. »

David Harbour Reveals The Hellboy Reboot Will Not Be An Origin Story

2 hours ago

Reboots are beginning to grow smarter. Or, at least, studios are getting smarter about their reboots. Traditionally, reboots return not just a story, but a character to their origin. Look no further than Batman Begins, Casino Royale, The Amazing Spider-Man, and even the reboot/sequel Star Trek (2009),  all of which not only explored their characters' origin stories, but covered them in more depth than even the previous iterations. In the case of Casino Royale, it was fresh territory for the franchise, while The Amazing Spider-Man gave everyone Uncle Ben and spider-bite fatigue.

David Harbour, who will be playing Hellboy in the reboot of that franchise, appeared on Happy Sad Confused podcast and discussed the fact that the Hellboy reboot won’t retell the character’s origin story:

“There is something of [his origin], but it’s not really an origin story movie. We kind of pick up the movie like we’re running and gunning. »

New Video Shows Dolph Lundgren Training For Creed 2

3 hours ago

We love our nostalgia. The current state of blockbusters is proof of that fact. And yet, more recently, the box office has proven that mere nostalgia for the sake of nostalgia will rarely work. It has to actually be good, quality nostalgia. One example of that is the 2015 film Creed. Creed is a film that, by all means, should have been terrible. It was a way to capitalize on a franchise that had been dormant for about a decade — and it was set to pass the torch onto a new lead, all while paying homage to the films and hero we know from the past six Rocky movies.

Somehow, they managed to make it work. It had an authenticity to it that was unmistakable. Of course, it opened up the floodgates to other story possibilities in Creed 2. Some weeks ago, Sylvester Stallone revealed that one of these possibilities would be explored in the sequel. »

Game Of Thrones Director Admits The Timeline Of Last Episode Is 'A Little Hazy'

4 hours ago

This season of Game of Thrones seems to be a bit polarizing from fans. On one hand, you have fans who Love the fact that they’re getting so many payoffs over so short a period of time. After six seasons of dedicated viewing, and hours upon hours of devotion to dozens of characters, it’s nice to see them all pay off in a meaningful way. Then, you also have some fans who understandably think that the pacing has gotten ridiculous. Events that would normally take a full season are now happening within an episode, and some argue it takes away from the meditative pacing of the book and the first five or six seasons.

This whole pacing and timeline issue is extending from the actual delivery of the show into the narrative of show itself — namely last week’s episode, »

Why They Changed The Look Of Pennywise The Clown For The New It Film!

5 hours ago

Stephen King’s It is arguably one of his most iconic books, largely due to its villain Pennywise. Pennywise himself is a shapeshifter who takes on the look of his victims’ biggest fears, but he’s best known for his default look of a clown, as portrayed by Tim Curry in the 1990s miniseries.

This particular look for the character has since gone on to be just as iconic as the book itself, despite the large number of people who have not seen the series itself. It’s risen above being just a show and into the pop culture zeitgeist. With something like that, it’s always hard to make changes, as audiences generally always go in with their own preconceived notions on what a character should be. Such is the case with It’s Pennywise the clown.

Some months ago, the look of Pennywise in the upcoming adaptation was revealed, »

The Punisher: New Photo Shows Us Frank Castle In Full Costume!

6 hours ago

Right now, a lot of us are still riding high on The Defenders, and those who have yet to watch the Netflix original series all the way through probably still have their mind occupied with the goings of the Hand in New York City. Yet, despite The Defenders either still being on your radar, or being just in your rear view mirror, Netflix still has another big Marvel show on the horizon in 2017, and that’s The Punisher.

Frank Castle’s the Punisher made his McU debut on the Netflix series Daredevil back in early 2016, and the character was such a breakout hit that Marvel opted to go forward with a series of his own. The tail end of Daredevil saw the anti-hero donning a vest with a skull spray-painted on it, and going forward, it made sense that that’s the look we’d continue with that look.

Star Wars, Game Of Thrones, Legend Of Korra, & More Hot Properties Headed To Your Tabletop

7 hours ago

This last weekend marked GenCon, the good ol' U.S. of A.'s biggest, awesomest tabletop gaming convention. Covering boardgames, card games, and miniatures, there's never been a better time for hobby gamers as evidenced by the fact that this was the first sellout crowd in GenCon's nearly-50 year history.

Featuring events for games such as Warhammer, Dungeons & Dragons, and Magic: The Gathering, GenCon has long been the destination for gamers. Increasingly, though, the booming hobby game industry's tie-ins to established media properties makes it a notable event for geeks and nerds of all stripes. As such, I infiltrated the crowd and happily bring you back all the stuff worth knowing.

Legend of Korra: Pro-Bending Arena

Published by Idw Games, this two-player deckbuilding/boardgame mashup has players taking control of water, fire and earthbenders in a competition style originating on the beloved animated series. The goal of the game is »

Hackers Threaten To Release Game Of Thrones Season Finale Early

7 hours ago

The drama with HBO and the hackers continue. For those who don’t know, HBO’s been having some real security problems as of late. Not only have they suffered with some internal leaks, but a group of hackers has infiltrated the studio, and has previously released scripts for the episodes early. The aforementioned internal leak (when HBO Spain accidentally premiered yesterday's episode of Game of Thrones a week early) made avoiding spoilers for fans especially annoying, and if the hackers are telling the truth, fans may have a similar problem this week.

The group got in touch with the outlet Mashable, and pretty much said for them to get ready for last week's episode and the finale to hit:

"Be ready for Got S& E6 &E7 as soon as possible.”

The Defenders Season 1, Episode 1 Review: The H Word

8 hours ago

Hey everyone, today begins Lrm's reviews of Marvel and Netflix's The Defenders -- the 8-episode mini-series event that combines characters and events from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. We're spreading out our reviews over the next few weeks to give everyone a chance to discuss each episode and debate the good, the bad, and the Danny Rand (just kidding, the more we get to know the Iron Fist, the less we dislike him).

The Setup

We open on a desperate chase and running fight through the sewers of Phenom Penn, Cambodia. Iron Fist (Finn Jones) and Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) pursue a lead on The Hand, but encounter a highly-skilled swordfighter instead (hint: It's Elektra). Rand and Elektra battle, and Danny appears to defeat her with a Chi punch, but not before she kills the man they sought. As an aside, it's not clear how Danny summons »

American Horror Story: Cult Gets Political In Opening Sequence

9 hours ago

Gotta love a good opening. As an anime fan (a medium that’s well known for its ridiculous opening sequences), I’ve always been partial to crazy cool opening sequences for iconic TV shows, and American Horror Story is a show that’s alway capitalized on utilizing its openings to help set the tone for the episode going forward.

Sadly, last season saw the opening sequences disappear so that the reality TV style they shot in wouldn’t be lost. While this definitely made for an engrossing season (perhaps one of my favorites of the series on the whole), I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the style and creepiness inherent in their openings.

If you’re like me, you’ll be happy to hear that this year will bring back said openings with American Horror Story: Cult, and this time, things get political. This is no surprise. »

Game of Thrones: Season 7 Finale Teaser: 'There Is Only One War That Matters' [Video]

10 hours ago

As the last pieces of the epic story that is Game of Thrones begin to fall into place, we have the final teaser for what is thought by many fans as the best season of the show. The silence of this preview sent chills down my spine, nothing needed be said, as all the major players in the game arrive at King’s Landing for a meeting bringing the culmination of six seasons. Not a word is spoken through the majority of the teaser, the preview shows King's landing being surrounded and builds its way to a meeting in the courtyard. Doing this makes the coming episode feel even more ominous.

The look on Tyrion’s face when arriving at King’s Landing says it all, as smart as he is, he cannot be sure the outcome of this meeting, he looks uncomfortable to say the least. As Daenerys told »

The Defenders: Did The Ending Set Up This Famous Comic Book Storyline? [Spoilers]

10 hours ago

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for the entirety of The Defenders Season 1.

If you were like us this weekend, you spent a good chunk of time sitting back and watching the 8-episode miniseries The Defenders. For the most part, apart from some squabbles I had here and there, the series managed to be a pretty great time, living up to promises of it being in line with a summer blockbuster of sorts (though, it’s ultimately a tad more low-key than that, considering its TV budget). What was most surprising to me, however, was the way it ended.

In the final battle between the Hand and the Defenders, Daredevil stays behind in hopes of still knocking some sense into her brainwashed mind (stupid Daredevil). The result? The charge set in the building goes off, and from what we can tell, the hole he’s in collapses in on itself. This means the end for Daredevil, »

Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 6 Review: Beyond The Wall

11 hours ago

*This Post Contains Spoilers For Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 And Game Of Thrones In General*

This current season of Game of Thrones is truly one for the record books, not only for the show itself, but for television and storytelling in general. Benioff and Weiss have really constructed something beautifully brutal over the last several years. What I plan to do is cover the events beyond the wall first and see if I can get to some of the smaller, but not necessarily less important parts of the episode. Just like last week’s review, feel free to bring up anything you enjoyed about the episode in the comments.

The Season 7 episodes continue to get better and better with “Beyond the Wall.” As you might have guessed the episode begins and spends most of its time, beyond the wall with Jon an his crew of Westerosi Expendables. The group »

Glass: New Synopsis Revealed For M. Night Shyamalan’s Horror Sequel!

12 hours ago

This year saw the release of the surprise hit Split. Not only did this movie feature something of a tour de force performance from James McAvoy, but it was also a bit of a return to form for writer-director M. Night Shyamalan, who had faced years of ridicule from many film fans. After a handful or so of underwhelming-to-laughable films, Split was his second feature in a row that actually featured glimpses of the greatness we had witnessed early on in his career with films like The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable.

And speaking of Unbreakable, the ending of Split revealed that the world established in the film is actually one and the same as the world shown in Unbreakable. For years, fans have been crying for a sequel to the Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson-starring film, and rather than going for a more traditional sequel, Shyamalan opted for this backdoor method, »

Death Note Review: A Film Worth Noting

13 hours ago

The upcoming Death Note film is one that’s been plagued with doubt and ridicule from day one. Anime and manga fans aren’t exactly known for keeping their feelings secret, and with the continual declarations of whitewashing overseas properties the casting of Nat Wolff as Light certainly didn’t help a whole lot. But would this be a film that would crash and burn like other similar manga adaptations like Ghost in the Shell and Dragon Ball Evolution?

Lrm had a chance to attend a special screening at last month’s San Diego Comic-Con, and we’re happy to report that no, we do not believe this one will suffer a similar fate. While fans of the manga will likely still poke and prod this adaptation due to its relative unfaithfulness to the manga (it uses the premise as a jumping off point, rather than sticking to each core »

David Hasselhoff Wants To Star In A Knight Rider Movie In The Vein Of Logan

16 hours ago

David Hasselhoff is making a come back… sort off. At the very least, the Baywatch and Knight Rider star had a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 -- where he received a new nickname, Zardu Hasselfrau –- and starred in the music video for Guardians’ Inferno, a special feature for the film. If you think Hasselhoff is ready to fade back into obscurity, you’re wrong. Dead wrong. In fact, Hasselhoff has the perfect project for himself. If anyone else is interested in making it. Or seeing it…

Hasselhoff had a conversation with CinemaBlend about his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Hasselhoff couldn’t help but pitch his dream project:

"I have met Robert Rodriguez. He does Dusk til Dawn and Machete. And I said 'You need to do Knight Rider.' Because he was doing a marathon of Knight Riders and he said 'Can we have a selfie! »

Krysten Ritter Says Jessica Jones Season 2 Will Be "Just As Impactful" As Season 1

17 hours ago

Now that The Defenders has dropped, it is time to look forward to “Phase 2” of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. First up is Season 1 of The Punisher this fall, followed by Jessica Jones Season 2, expected early next year. I have really enjoyed every Marvel series Netflix has released so far, even Iron Fist, but how will these series remain as powerful and emotional as the episode count of each series continues to grow? 

Bustle had a conversation with actress Krysten Ritter, who plays Jessica Jones in her solo series and The Defenders, in which they discussed the second season of the popular show. It has already been confirmed that David Tennant will return as Kilgrave, in some capacity. Ritter says that Jones is still dealing with Kilgrave aftermath as well as skyrocketing popularity with “her phone ringing off the hook.”
