Exciting New Clip Surfaces From Doctor Who Christmas Special

2 hours ago

We’re hope you’re getting excited, boys and girls, ‘cos we’re now just over a week away from Christmas. And we all know what that means, right? You got it – the annual Doctor Who yuletide special is almost here!

Ahead of the episode’s arrival on December 25th, the BBC have dropped this new clip (above) from the upcoming outing, titled “Twice Upon a Time.” The minute-long sequence throws us right in the middle of the action, with the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi), the First Doctor (David Bradley), Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Mark Gatiss’ mystery Wwi Captain making a getaway in the Tardis. Except, there’s a twist.

Following on from the end of the season 10 finale, “The Doctor Falls,” in which the Doctor encountered his original self in the Antarctic, “Twice Upon a Time” will see the two Time Lords and their friends caught up in a »

Bumblebee And Pitch Perfect 3 Star Hailee Steinfeld Wants To Play Batgirl

2 hours ago

There’s a good deal of uncertainty surrounding Batgirl at the moment, and a lot of that stems from the debacle that was Justice League. Due to the pic disappointing both critically and financially, the studio’s now lost faith in Joss Whedon, from what we hear, and are reconsidering letting him direct the aforementioned upcoming project. In fact, we’ve even heard that it might be cancelled outright.

Chalk that up as a rumor for now, but it’s clear that there’s some re-shuffling going on behind the scenes at Warner Bros. and unfortunately, Batgirl may be in trouble. Still, that hasn’t stopped various actresses from throwing their hat into the ring for the titular role and the latest to do so is Bumblebee and Pitch Perfect 3 star Hailee Steinfeld.

While chatting with MTV in a recent interview, the outlet told her that they think she »

Here’s Every X-Men Project That Could Be In Danger Now That Disney Owns Fox

3 hours ago

The future of the X-Men franchise is totally up in the air at the moment, following the recent announcement that, after weeks of rumours, Disney has indeed bought out Fox.

In the immediate future, of course, nothing much will change. For instance, there are already three X-films from Fox coming in 2018: April’s The New Mutants, June’s Deadpool 2 and November’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix. After that, though, who knows what’s going to happen to the slate of movies – not to mention the franchise’s associated TV shows – that are in the works?

By this point, you’d be forgiven if you’ve lost track of all the potential future installments of the series, so we’ve put together a quick list of what’s coming down the pipeline, along with which ones might be in danger of getting the axe now that Disney’s in the picture. »

Gorgeous New Black Panther Posters Tease T’Challa’s Upgraded Armor

4 hours ago

Although pretty much everybody and their mother is frothing at the mouth waiting to see Avengers: Infinity War – and rightfully so – it’s important we not forget that Marvel Studios have one more stop on the road before arriving at the next big team-up flick. We are, of course, talking about Black Panther.

Admittedly, it’s quite easy to get swept up in the hype surrounding Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ next grand adventure, but we have good reason to look forward to the King of Wakanda’s solo cinematic debut more than most other Marvel films to be released over the course of the next two years.

Pegged to arrive in February of 2018 – just three short months before the advent of Infinity War – the standalone pic is a truly star-studded affair, and it’ll be anchored by Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa, the man who would be king. Similar to »

More Evidence Suggests That Gwen Stacy Will Be In Spider-Man: Homecoming 2

5 hours ago

After Spider-Man: Homecoming offered a very fresh take on the wallcrawler’s mythos, it only makes sense that the sequel would add its own unique interpretations of classic Spider-Man supporting characters, as well. A week ago, for instance, word arrived that Gwen Stacy, one of Peter Parker’s most iconic love interests, would be joining the McU in the follow-up. The twist is, though, that the character will be portrayed as a high school exchange student.

Now, a second piece of evidence has arrived that further supports Gwen’s inclusion in Homecoming 2. Following on from an audition tape from a young French actress hoping to play the part, another has appeared online from Iris Haller, who was born in Luxembourg. Her audition was shared on Vimeo, with comments suggesting she’s responding to a call from agents for European actresses to try out for Gwen.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Actor On Whether They’ll Return For Episode IX

5 hours ago

If you’ve seen the movie by now, you’ll know that Star Wars: The Last Jedi features the emotional end of Luke Skywalker. After projecting a Force version of himself to confront his wayward nephew Kylo Ren on Crait, Luke peacefully vanishes into the Force, like other Jedi masters before him.

But, if Mark Hamill has his way, this won’t be the last we see of his iconic character. While appearing at an Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences screening for The Last Jedi, hosted by EW, Hamill explained that he’s keeping his fingers crossed that he’ll get a call to return for the upcoming Episode IX. He even joked that he’s happy to fill another role on the production, just so he can get to be part of it in some form.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Blasts Off With A Massive Opening Weekend

6 hours ago

After two years’ worth of far-flung fan theories and enough pent-up excitement to sink a Mega Star Destroyer, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited. Rian Johnson’s entry into the Skywalker saga is everything we hoped it’d be and more, delivering an epic, dazzling and beautifully shot adventure set in that galaxy far, far away which we absolutely loved.

Audiences felt the same way, apparently, as it’s being reported that over its opening weekend, Episode VIII pulled in a staggering $450 million at the worldwide box office. Split up, that’s $220 million domestically (falling just short of The Force Awakens‘ $248 million) and $230 million internationally, proving that Lucasfilm’s sci-fi franchise is a juggernaut in all parts of the world. With solid word of mouth and very positive reviews, it’s looking like the money’s just going to keep on rolling in. »

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Batman On Epic New Flashpoint Poster

6 hours ago

The Dceu’s in a bit of trouble right now, that’s no secret. Justice League failed to impress both critically and financially and the studio’s future slate is looking a bit uncertain right now. Though they did announce what’s coming down the pipeline the other week at Comic-Con Experience Brazil, we’ve also heard that some of those films may not end up actually coming to fruition. If there is one project though that’s definitely a priority for Warner Bros., it’s Flashpoint.

For those who don’t know, in comic book lore, the “Flashpoint” arc sees Barry Allen zip back in time to save his mother, but he inadvertently triggers a domino effect that spreads throughout the DC Universe. And so, Thomas and Martha wind up surviving that infamous mugging, but the untimely death of Bruce leads the Wayne family down two very separate tracks: one to vigilantism, »

The Game Continues When Jigsaw Arrives On Blu-Ray Next Month

19 hours ago

When Jigsaw was first announced by the folks at Lionsgate, and Saw: The Final Chapter was no longer the swan song promised, horror fans were understandably worried that the series was about to go one step too far and, dare we say it, jump the shark. Now, with the film having finished up its theatrical run, it’s clear that there’s little to no gas left in the tank of this once beloved franchise.

True, Jigsaw wasn’t an awful movie, but it was made more for the hardcore fans than anyone else and those seemed to be the only people who really enjoyed it. Still, the studio isn’t giving up on the titular killer just yet and will be releasing the pic on Blu-ray next month. On January 9th, to be exact, when it’ll hit 4K Ultra HD and Blu-Ray Combo Pack, with a »

Mark Hamill Had A Secret Second Role In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

19 hours ago

Not content with reprising Luke Skywalker after over thirty years, Mark Hamill apparently landed himself a mysterious second role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. 

As pointed out, amongst others, by Twitter user Doug Bowman, Hamill appears twice in the credits of the movie. If you stuck around that long for your screening, you would have seen the actor’s name listed near the end of the cast rundown, where he’s credited as a character named “Dobbu Scay.”

The big question now is: who is this enigmatic Dobbu Scay? Well, going by the other credits surrounding Hamill (e.g. Canto Cop and Stable Boy), it’s clear that this character appeared in the Canto Bight sequences, when Finn and Rose infiltrated the casino populated by the galaxy’s richest citizens.

The prevailing theory right now is that Hamill played the most memorable gambler at the casino: the little »

Karen Gillan Is “Bothered” By People Who Are Against A Female Doctor

19 hours ago

She might have exited the show a whole five years ago now, but Karen Gillan is still happy to talk about Doctor Who.

While promoting her latest movie – the surprisingly great Jumanji: Welcome the Jungle – the Avengers: Infinity War actress was asked about what she thinks of Jodie Whittaker’s casting as the Thirteenth Doctor. She made clear that she’s on board with the idea of a woman playing the Time Lord and in fact, it really bothers her that a subset of fans were “skeptical” about the Doctor’s change of gender.

“That was major for the show, it’s never happened before. And there were so many people that were skeptical, and it just bothered me. Because of course a female could play a role, that’s insane.”

It’s no surprise that Karen Gillan has proven herself to be one of Jodie Whittaker’s biggest supporters. »

Tom Hardy Gets Bloody And Bruised In Brutal Venom Fight Scene

19 hours ago

Since Sony’s Venom began production back in October, a steady stream of pics from the set have leaked out. The latest bunch arrived online today and though not terribly revealing, they showcase Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock shooting what looks to be a pretty brutal fight.

There’s actually quite a bit here, as we’ve got a huge gallery of photos along with two videos, all taken from the same scene. The exact context of what’s going on isn’t known, but what we can confirm is that Hardy is squaring off against one of the film’s villains, played by Scott Haze. Some fans are speculating that Haze may actually be portraying Carnage, but we imagine the studio would be aiming for an A-lister when it comes to that role. Then again, you never know.

Regardless, here are those photos:

No Changes Were Made To Leia’s Story In The Last Jedi After Carrie Fisher’s Death

23 hours ago

While we’ve been waiting for Star Wars: The Last Jedi to land in cinemas for a while now, there is a bittersweet edge to its arrival, as it’s the final time we’ll ever get to see Carrie Fisher as General/Princess Leia, following her tragic death last December.

The production team faced a difficult challenge in the wake of Fisher’s passing, as they had to decide whether to edit the film to wrap up Leia’s story in some way or to preserve her final performance as it was intended. In the end, director Rian Johnson took the latter path and didn’t make any edits at all to Leia’s scenes in the film.

While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Johnson made clear that this was the only decision he entertained as any alternative would have just been a “horror.”

“That was the very »

Something Really Bad Happens In The First 5 Minutes Of Avengers: Infinity War

23 hours ago

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will finally step out of the shadows and take on the combined forces of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. After various teaser appearances and cameos dating all the way back to 2012’s The Avengers, there’s a lot of hype for the Mad Titan and he’s all set to be the biggest, baddest enemy the heroes of the Marvel universe have ever faced. We’re sure that the titular team will ultimately be able to take him down, but they’re certainly going to have a tough time doing so.

Not only will Thanos have the Black Order there to help him, but he’ll also be in possession of the incredibly powerful Infinity Gauntlet, which will be fully equipped by the time the film rolls around. It’ll essentially allow the uber villain to wreak havoc and do just about anything he wants, which »

Ian McKellen Wants To Play Gandalf In The Lord Of The Rings TV Series

16 December 2017 3:10 PM, PST

Amazon’s quest to resurrect The Lord of the Rings will begin with a multi-season TV show that’s slowly starting to take shape.

Rooted in Middle-earth, the pitch itself is said to be similar to Game of Thrones both in terms of scale and scope, and will apparently explore new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. Both Netflix and HBO had been approached by the Tolkien estate in the past, but it was ultimately Amazon who put out close to $250 million for LotR‘s global rights, which is said to include the possibility of an additional spinoff. Again, this has the potential to become a Game of Thrones-level franchise for Amazon Studios.

Headed up by the company’s CEO Jeff Bezos, not many details were disclosed at the time of the original announcement, but that hasn’t stopped industry insiders from labeling the record-setting deal as “insane, »

Here’s What Rian Johnson Thinks Of The Revelation About Rey’s Parents In The Last Jedi

16 December 2017 1:25 PM, PST

Ever since the multi-talented Rey first dropped into the Star Wars universe back in 2015’s The Force Awakens, fans have been theorizing about just who her parents could be. I mean, obviously she had to be related to some sort of established character, right? Is she really Luke’s daughter? Obi-Wan Kenobi’s? Kylo Ren’s secret twin?

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we finally get our answer – and it comes as quite a shock. In a climactic moment of the movie, Kylo Ren reveals that Rey’s parents were… no one important at all. Just some lowlifes on Jakku who sold their daughter in exchange for money to fuel their various vices. Kylo uses the info as a tool to break Rey’s spirit, in hopes of getting her to come to the Dark Side. Rey proves stronger than him though and stands her ground.

Still, it’s »

Did Chandler Riggs Let Slip That The Walking Dead Is Ending Soon?

16 December 2017 1:07 PM, PST

You can’t have missed the widespread reaction from a large section of the fandom claiming that The Walking Dead hasn’t been at its best for a few years now. In fact, many would go as far as to say that it’s on its last legs and should be wrapped up in the next couple of seasons. Now, a new bit of info seems to suggest that this is exactly what’s going to happen.

The big cliffhanger of The Walking Dead‘s midseason finale was the shock reveal that Carl Grimes has been bitten by a walker – meaning that he’s on his way out in the midseason premiere. In a rare feat nowadays, the twist remained largely unspoiled beforehand, though it was later revealed that The Spoiling Dead received a message from Carl himself, Chandler Riggs, asking them not to drop the revelation beforehand. Now that the episode has aired, »

New Justice League Petition Calls For Black Suit Superman Scene To Be Released

16 December 2017 11:12 AM, PST

Back in black? Not exactly.

Despite scores of rumors and half-baked story claims, Justice League never alluded to Black Suit Superman in any shape or form, leaving fans to wonder what could have been. And just as Henry Cavill teased viewers via Instagram throughout the film’s storied (messy?) production – not to mention those Justice League merchandise items depicting a black-suited Man of Steel – cinematographer Fabian Wagner has since confirmed that, yes, Cavill donned the famous armor on set. It just didn’t make the cut.

That’s something that can be said about a lot of Justice League content, given Warner Bros. reportedly placed a two-hour mandate on its DC mega-movie soon after Joss Whedon replaced Zack Snyder at the helm. As you surely know, a fan petition asking the studio to give us Snyder’s footage has already surpassed a staggering 150,000 signatures and continues to grow each and every day and now, »

Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke Gets A Gorgeous Legion Of Doom Poster

16 December 2017 10:21 AM, PST

For the longest time, Deathstroke was a rather obscure DC character. But, thanks in large part to Arrow, the world’s deadliest mercenary permeated the mainstream, with appearances in video games such as Batman: Arkham Origins and animated films like Son of Batman also doing wonders to help his cause.

Much to our delight, Slade Wilson’s future is looking brighter than ever now, as the character recently appeared in a post-credits scene for Justice League, in addition to Warner Bros. kicking around the idea for a solo film. That’s all hugely exciting, especially because Joe Manganiello is absolutely perfect in the role and it seems that he has a bright future in the DC Extended Universe.

There’s the standalone outing we just mentioned, which is being helmed by director Gareth Evans and is looking to Gods of War, Tony S. Daniel and Sandu Florea’s comic series »

Deadpool 2 Title Revealed?

16 December 2017 9:53 AM, PST

It’s rather fitting that the Deadpool 2 marketing campaign is as cheeky and unpredictable as its titular lead.

From Thanksgiving treats to Bob Ross-inspired trailers (“and remember, hugs and drugs”), the Powers That Be have wholeheartedly embraced the Merc’s irreverent style, which, in turn, has allowed Ryan Reynolds to do what he does best: serve up funny and often deadpan tweets to his legions of followers. And the actor’s latest post certainly honored that tradition.

Via Twitter, Reynolds unveiled a striking piece of artwork earlier this week that imagined Deadpool and Cable in the Creation of Adam, Michelangelo’s biblical painting that’s etched into the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. But this is not the Vatican City. And let’s face it: neither Wade Wilson nor Nathan Summers are terribly religious. Instead, the tongue-in-cheek promo is designed to drum up excitement for the second coming, as »
