James Wan says Aquaman movie does not have three villains

38 minutes ago

If you’re going into Aquaman expecting to see Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry battling three villains in Patrick Wilson’s Orm (a.k.a. Ocean Master), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta, and Dolph Lundgren’s King Nereus, then think again as director James Wan has told Entertainment Weekly it’s “ridiculous” to cram so many bad guys into an origin movie.

“This is what I’ll say: I don’t have three villains,” said Wan. “I think that’s ridiculous! I would never go into an origin movie with three villains. We don’t even know the main character let alone the world and its antagonist. I believe in taking baby steps. I want to introduce Arthur Curry in a much more emotional and powerful way, and introduce Mera played by Amber Heard, and of course there’s Nicole Kidman and Temuera Morrison playing his parents. We know Black Manta is in there, »

Video Game Review – Resident Evil 7: End of Zoe

1 hour ago

Harrison Abbott reviews Resident Evil 7: End of Zoe…

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard  is a legitimate candidate for ”most surprising game of 2017”. Which is odd, given that its lofty pedigree should deny it any kind of dark horse status. It is, after all, descending from a uniquely impressive lineage, one that includes bona fide classics like Resident Evil Remake, Resident Evil 2 and of course, the incomparable Resident Evil 4.

With such a storied legacy propping it up, there should never have been any doubt about Biohazard’s potential. And yet, thanks to some piss-poor marketing, which presented the game as yet another desperate Outlast clone, Re:7 was initially met with a heavy dose of scepticism. The fact that it was immediately following on from a procession of badly-received disappointments (like the risible Umbrella Corps, the lacklustre Operation Raccoon City and the messy Re:6) certainty didn’t help matters either.

Nevertheless, when the game finally arrived, »

The Best Holiday Horror Movies

2 hours ago

Rafael Motamayor on the six holiday horror movies you need to watch before Christmas…

It’s almost Christmas, and many are mid-way through their Holiday marathons. Christmas lights are up, and carollers are out and around singing merry tunes. Tacky Christmas sweaters can be seen in the streets, but some of us prefer Christmas light illuminating scenes of bloody horror. After all, don’t Christmas sweaters and Christmas decorations look brighter and cooler covered in blood? Killer Santas, devilish elves, kids being awful and kind of psychopathic, you named it.

What better way to take a break from all the pompous glee than watch some horror movies that still maintain some Christmas spirit? Honouring the spirit of the arbitrary-ranking-list-season, here are the best Christmas horror films that will likely piss you off because I omitted your personal favourite.

Better Watch Out (2016, dir: Chris Peckover)

The 10 Best TV Shows of 2017

2 hours ago

Samuel Brace with his ten best TV shows of 2017…

Wow. What a year it’s been.

2017 has been a true standout for high quality television; featuring never better returning favourites, premium series finales, and new shows announcing their arrival onto the stage. There’s been a bit of everything in 2017 but just which of its myriad TV entries have transcended above all others? Well, that’s why we’re here today, to present to you the 10 best TV shows of 2017.

10. Legion

This was certainly unexpected, not because its showrunner (Noah Hawley of Fargo) isn’t talented but because of its subject matter. An X-Men spinoff show about Xavier’s son? “No thanks” many said, but the many were wrong, Legion was terrific. A truly bizarre adventure, this mind bending FX escapade forced itself away from the pack by bringing prestige TV back to the superhero genre after Netflix temporarily departed it a few series ago. »

The It Crowd getting a U.S. remake at NBC

2 hours ago

NBC is hoping it will be third time lucky in its efforts to remake the British sitcom The It Crowd for American audiences, with Variety reporting that the network has tapped original series creator Graham Linehan to write and executive produce a reimagining of the cult show.

The It Crowd premiered on Channel 4 in 2006 and ran for four seasons, followed by a one off special in 2013. The show takes place in the offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries, and featured a cast that included Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, and Matt Berry.

NBC originally produced a pilot for a U.S. remake in 2007, with Ayoade starring alongside Joel McHale and Jessica St. Clair, although it failed to move forward. The network took a second stab in 2014, but again the project failed to get off the ground.

In addition to The It Crowd, Linehan’s other credits include Father Ted, »

Concept art from failed Justice League Dark pitch featuring Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Constantine and more

3 hours ago

Following the departure of Guillermo del Toro on DC’s planned Justice League Dark movie (which was then going by the title Dark Universe), Warner Bros. invited filmmakers to pitch their ideas for the supernatural DC ensemble.

One such filmmaker was Joseph Kahn, who collaborated with Ironklad Studios to produce several pieces of concept art for his ultimately unsuccessful pitch. And now we have a look at said concept art, which features Swamp Thing, Floronic Man, Deadman, Natalie Dormer as Zatanna, Dan Stevens as Constantine and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Jason Blood/Etrigan the Demon. Check them out here and let us know what you make of the designs and casting choices in the comments below…

Following Kahn’s pitch, Warner Bros. enlisted Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) to direct Justice League Dark with a view to fast tracking it into production, although as with del Toro, he also subsequently exited the project. »

Ranking 2017’s Superhero Movies From Worst to Best

3 hours ago

Liam Hoofe ranks this year’s superhero movies from worst to best…

To describe a year as being ‘a marquee year’ for superhero movies feels redundant by this point. Every year fans are treated to at least five superhero movies and 2017 was no different. With DC, rather haphazardly, having entered the game in 2016, all eyes were on their first team-up attempt, Justice League this year, to see whether or not their cinematic universe could really compete with Marvel.

Fox, having hit the jackpot (financially, at least) with Deadpool last year, turned their attention to bringing to an end one of cinema’s most iconic characters with Logan, while Marvel delivered the last of their phase 3 movies before next year’s Avengers: Infinity War. But in a year where six movies were released between the three major players, who reigned supreme? Let’s take a look back at the six superhero »

It helmer teaming with the Russos to adapt The Electric State

4 hours ago

According to Deadline, Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have won a bidding war for the rights to Simon Stalenhag’s illustrated novel The Electric State, with It helmer Andy Muschietti in talks to direct.

The Kickstarter-funded book is described as “a re-imagined low tech apocalyptic mid 90s vision of the American West.” The description reads:

In late 1997, a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot travel west through a strange USA, where the ruins of gigantic battle drones litter the countryside heaped together with the discarded trash of a high tech consumerist society in decline. As their car approaches the edge of the continent, the world outside the window seems to be unraveling ever faster as if somewhere beyond the horizon, the hollow core of civilization has finally caved in.

Stalenhag will serve as executive producer, while the script will be written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, »

The Week in Star Wars – The Last Jedi receives amazing reviews and good box office news and more

4 hours ago

The Week in Star Wars is back with a Last Jedi special, with reviews of the film, everything you need to know about the box office and much more…

It’s finally here! Rian Johnson’s eighth adventure in a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Last Jedi! Reviews for the film were incredibly strong – the film is 93% on Rotten Tomatoes at press time – but it has divided some of the fan base. There has even been a petition launched for Disney to remove the film from cannon and “push back Episode IX” so they can remake Episode VIII. Whatever the case, you can read Robert Kojder’s ★★★★ review here, James Turner’s ★★ review here and my own ★★★★★ review here. What did you all think of it?..

…And it’s been good news for the film at the box office, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi »

Kevin Hart to go On the Run, wants Mrs. Doubtfire remake

5 hours ago

Variety is reporting that Kevin Hart is teaming up with Universal Pictures to produce and star in On the Run, an action comedy which is being scripted by Aeysha Carr (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).

Although details are scarce, the film will see Hart taking on the role of a hitman whose assigned target turns out to be a surprise. Hart will produce with Will Packer, the two having previously worked together on Ride Along and Think Like a Man.

Meanwhile, Hart – who will next be seen alongside Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black and Karen Gillan in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – has also revealed that he’d like to remake another Robin Williams classic in the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire.

“I’ll stay on the Robin Williams train and say that if I could jump into Mrs. Doubtfire,” Hart told CinemaBlend. “That was a very amazing performance on both ends for him. I think »

Comic Book Review – The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest: Millennium #1

6 hours ago

Liam Hoofe reviews The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest: Millennium #1…

Hard Case’s graphic novel adaptations of the Millenium trilogy have been, especially for fans of the original books, a joy to read. The first two entries in the series were excellent depictions of their respective novels and the final entry in the series The Girl Who Played With Fire gets off to a similarly encouraging start with its first edition.

This edition picks up where the previous one left off. Lisbeth is lying wounded in a hospital bed following the events of the previous book, Mikeal has now taken Lisbeth’s case to the local police to attempt to help clear her name, Lisbeth’s father is recovering in hospital from injuries caused by his daughter, Ronald Niedermann is on the run, and ‘The Section’ has been reinstated.

This edition of the comics covers the first few chapters of the titular novel, »

Why Winston Churchill Continues To Fascinate

6 hours ago

Neil Calloway looks at why Britain’s wartime leader is rarely off our screens…

It’s a great pub quiz question; which character has been played by Brendan Gleeson, Timothy Spall, Michael Gambon, Albert Finney, Brian Cox and Christian Slater?

The answer is, of course, Winston Churchill. I normally roll my eyes when I go to a preview screening of something and a member of the public asks a question, it almost inevitably being both pretentious and with little bearing on what we’ve just seen, but last year, after a screening of the TV drama Churchill’s Secret, someone asked if Winston Churchill was becoming a modern Hamlet; the role that every actor wants to play at some point. There’s some truth to that assertion.

Now, with the upcoming release of Darkest Hour, we can add Gary Oldman to the list of those who have played Britain’s wartime leader. »

Rian Johnson discusses the Rey’s parents reveal in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

8 hours ago

Major spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi follow. You have been warned…

The two big questions coming out of 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens were: 1) ‘Who is Supreme Leader Snoke?’, and 2) ‘Who are Rey’s parents?’. While the first was simply tossed aside in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as promised director Rian Johnson did give us an answer to the second, with Kylo Ren revealing that Rey is the offspring of two junkers on Jakku who sold her for drinking money.

The big reveal divided fans who have been debating Rey’s identity for the past two years, as well as sparking speculation that Kylo could have been lying to Rey in order to tempt her into joining him. However, according to Johnson himself, that isn’t the case – at least as far as he is concerned.

Neil Cross has received the John Carpenter seal of approval for his Escape from New York script

8 hours ago

Back in 2016 it was revealed that Luther creator Neil Cross had been tapped to pen the reboot/prequel to John Carpenter’s Escape from New York, and now Cross has provided an update on the project during an interview with Deadline, revealing that his script has received the seal of approval from Carpenter himself.

Robert Rodriguez is attached to direct and it’s looking good and exciting. It was quite a challenging script, it’s a challenging thing to reinvent. One of the most terrifying sentences I’ve ever heard in my life is ‘we’ve given the script to John Carpenter’. I crawled around for three days thinking ‘oh my god’ but we got John Carpenter’s seal of approval. He approved it and that’s all I need. You never quite know [if it’s done] but I might need to do some rewrites and do some nip and tuck but in the first approximation, »
