The Walking Dead Honors Cinema’s All-Time Greats With Nostalgic New Posters

1 hour ago

You didn’t think AMC was going to sit back and let Stranger Things have all the fun now, did you?

As the Netflix darling continues to imitate cinema’s all-time greats in anticipation of its return on October 27th, AMC (via Bloody Disgusting) has rolled out a collection of new and nostalgic posters for The Walking Dead in honor of episode number 100, “Mercy.”

Reaching said milestone is no mean feat, particularly in the cutthroat business of television, and executive producer and director Greg Nicotero believes The Walking Dead‘s 100th episode – an episode that is also doubling as season 8’s long-anticipated premiere – is cause for celebration. It’s seemingly chock-full of Easter eggs and nods to the past, but these old-school posters go one step further to pay tribute to cinema’s greatest hits.

Included in the gallery below are homages to The Thing, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, »

Another Round Of Justice League Pics Unveil Batman’s First Meeting With Arthur Curry

1 hour ago

Between them, Wonder Woman and the Caped Crusader are very much the anchors of Warner’s Justice League.

Still reeling from the events that transpired in and around Metropolis, when Superman was shockingly ‘killed’ by the wounded Doomsday, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) begin scouring the four corners of the planet in search of other metahumans. Because let’s face it, you can’t save the world alone.

And so, once Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) has been drafted into Batman’s make-shift team, the World’s Greatest Detective travels north in search of Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa), the rightful king of Atlantis. No pressure, then.

Indeed, early trailers for Justice League have teased that Batman and Aquaman don’t exactly see eye-to-eye at first – as is par of the course for a superhero ensemble movie – but thanks to Amazon‘s newly-unveiled paperback, Justice League: The Official Guide, »

Freddy Vs. Jason Director Explains Why He Ended The Film The Way He Did

10 hours ago

Long before any sort of justice had ever dawned, Freddy vs. Jason debuted in cinemas as what may be remembered as the first notable crossover between two major film franchises. Since then, we’ve received a couple Alien vs. Predator movies, the second of which performed so poorly that Fox split them back into their own separate entities, and to a much, much lesser extent, Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.

Believe it or not, though, the road to getting the dream mashup between the two slashers made was treacherous indeed. With the first seeds having been planted in the closing moments of 1993’s Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, you’d have thought we were off to the races. Alas, we we wrong.

None of us could have foreseen that the Hell Jason had actually been sent off to was that of the developmental variety, but, technically, he did at »

Frank Grillo Downplays Crossbones’ Return In Future Captain America Movies

11 hours ago

When you’re dealing with characters such as Captain America who have decades upon decades of comic book history backing them up, you have no shortage of villains and supporting characters to cull from when adapting to film. As such, we’ve seen the likes of the Red Skull, Bucky Barnes, Arnim Zola and the Falcon enjoy prominent roles in what I personally believe to be some of the finest movies Marvel Studios have produced to date.

Likewise, there’ll be a few that can fill small roles in cinematic adaptations even if they’ve given the titular hero a run for their money on various occasions in the source material. One example that springs to mind is that of Crossbones, who was played by Frank Grillo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Having been originally introduced simply as Brock Rumlow, a sleeper agent of Hydra, in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, »

Behind The Scenes Photos From The Dark Knight That Every Fan Should See

11 hours ago

Often, what you see on a screen when it comes to Hollywood blockbusters is not at all what the initial footage looked like. Whether it’s CGI, practical effects, models, costumes, make-up or any of the other numerous tactics employed to create movie magic, the finished product is almost always enhanced in some manner, especially when it comes to big budget films.

Thankfully, nearly every major blockbuster has its production recorded and documented by photographers and over the years, some truly incredible, exciting and often hilarious behind the scenes photos have made their way online. And so, on that note, join us today as we settle into another edition of our weekly column, where we’ll be exploring Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

Not only is this the best superhero movie of all time, but it’s also one of cinema’s greatest accomplishments. When critics consider the best films ever made, »

David Tennant And Billie Piper Explain Why They’re Returning To Doctor Who

12 hours ago

Even when your favourite Doctor regenerates and leaves the show, the great thing about Doctor Who is that they’re able to come back at any point in time. Thanks to time travel, the Doctor can easily bump into his past selves now and then. Of course, it all depends on whether the actor wants to or not, but luckily for the Tenth Doctor’s legion of fans, David Tennant says he’s always willing to return to the sci-fi show.

Whether that’ll ever happen or not is up for debate – we wouldn’t rule it out, though – but in the meantime, we’ve got the next best thing coming our way, as the actor will be reprising the role for a new series of audio dramas he’s recorded with TV co-star Billie Piper Aka Rose Tyler for Big Finish Productions. Granted, it’s obviously not as exciting »

The Alexandrians Are Willing To Make Sacrifices In The Walking Dead Season 8

13 hours ago

For most of The Walking Dead season 7, Rick Grimes and the Alexandrians were held back by their fear of what Negan and his Saviors could do to them. For instance, back in the premiere, Rick was about to chop off his own son’s arm under the villain’s orders. By the end of the season, though, they’d decided to stand up against their tyrannical overlord and now, the Alexandrians and their allies from other communities will lead an all-out war against Negan, and with war comes the need to make sacrifices.

When asked how Rick feels about his son taking part in the battle, Chandler Riggs (who plays Carl) explained that Rick’s come to terms with his son being at risk. He referenced a deleted scene from last season which dealt with the characters deciding that they were willing to sacrifice the people they care about for the greater good. »

New Fan-Made Halloween Poster Brings Laurie And Michael Together

14 hours ago

In exactly a year’s time, we’ll be settling in to watch the blank-faced Michael square off against Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode for the final time in Halloween. When the film releases, it’ll be the fortieth anniversary of John Carpenter’s iconic series, which redefined the genre and set out the tone and rhythm that we still see in movies to this day.

Bringing the project to fruition are Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, two men who you wouldn’t expect to dip their toes into horror, but that’s what makes this whole thing all the more exciting. From what we understand, the film will be a sequel of sorts to the original, disregarding Halloweens 2-8 and Rob Zombie’s mid-2000s reboot. This indicates that they’re eager to shed some of the baggage that’s built up around Laurie and Michael’s various »

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Star Says Film Is Faithful To Comics, Promises Fans Will Love It

14 hours ago

The end of X-Men: Apocalypse teased that the franchise would be stepping more in-line with the comics going forward, as the final shots featured Professor X’s team in some largely faithful comic book costumes. This looks to continue in the follow-up, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, as one of its stars has now promised fans that they’ll be “very happy” with what the movie has to offer.

Alexandra Shipp, who’s taken over from Halle Berry to play a younger version of Storm since Apocalypse, spoke to Deadline about the film and cited director Simon Kinberg as a big reason why Dark Phoenix will be “very accurate” to the comics. As you’ll no doubt know, Kinberg has long been involved with the X-Men movie franchise in the role of screenwriter and producer, but this is his first stint in the director’s chair.

The Russo Brothers To Part Ways With Marvel After Avengers 4?

16 hours ago

By this stage in the game, Joe and Anthony Russo are well versed in the inner workings of Marvel’s cinematic universe.

After delivering a taut thriller with The Winter Solider, the Russo Brothers graduated to the big leagues with Captain America: Civil War, a star-studded ensemble movie that went on to collect an eye-watering $1.1 billion worldwide. Next up? Avengers: Infinity War.

Pegged to arrive in May of 2018, Infinity War is undoubtedly Joe and Anthony Russo’s biggest endeavor to date – it’s a film of “infinite proportions,” according to Marvel brass – and when you consider that both directors jumped straight back in to helm Avengers 4, one would imagine that the Russos will be taking a long overdue holiday come 2019. That’s something that Josh Brolin (Thanos) touched on during a recent interview with Collider – the same interview in which he drew attention to the Mad Titan’s mean streak. »

Emilio Estevez Crowned Hollywood’s Most Profitable Actor

16 hours ago

Data compiled by Party Casino has revealed the most and least profitable stars in Hollywood, and Emilio Estevez has landed top of the pile.

Estevez, who ruled the roost during the ’80s and ’90s thanks to roles in The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire and The Mighty Ducks, enjoyed the best return for any male actor who starred in at least 10 films between the years of 1980 and 2017. To reach their somewhat surprising conclusion, Party Casino analyzed those box office numbers to determine that Emilio Estevez generated $6.70 for every $1 spent on the actor’s movies.

Jean-Claude Van Damme, meanwhile, ranked second with $4.20 for each dollar, with Mel Gibson ($3.50), Tyler Perry ($3), and Dudley Moore ($3) rounding out the top five. On the lower end of the scale, Brad Pitt was deemed Hollywood’s least profitable actor and returned only 10 cents for every $1 spent, followed by Johnny Depp (20 cents), Robert De Niro (24 cents »

It’s Mon Mothma Vs. Saw Gerrera In New Star Wars Rebels Clip

17 hours ago

As Star Wars Rebels comes to an end, season 4 will be pushing things ever closer towards the events of Rogue One. In particular, the show will lean into its title and explore how the Rebel Alliance as we know it from the original trilogy is formed. Before that, however, we’ll get a look at two familiar Rebel leaders coming to loggerheads due to their vastly different approaches – as seen in the clip above.

Next week’s episode, “In The Name of the Rebellion: Part One,” sees Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) square up against Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker). In Rogue One, audiences were introduced to Gerrera for the first time, though TV viewers had already met him in The Clone Wars. Here, it’s teased that we’ll get to explore exactly why Saw is so estranged from the rest of the Rebels in the recent Anthology film.

John Carpenter Has No Intention Of Rewatching His Old Movies – Halloween Included

17 hours ago

John Carpenter isn’t opposed to other filmmakers swooping in and remaking his greatest hits, that much we know, but when it comes to him actually rewatching the likes of Halloween and Big Trouble in Little ChinaCarpenter would rather claw his eyes out.

An exaggeration, of course, but during an exhaustive interview with The Guardian, Carpenter, one of cinema’s all-time greats, stressed that he has no intention of revisiting his back catalog, otherwise he’d just pick them apart for all their minor mistakes. It’s very much the view of a perfectionist and sure enough, John Carpenter admitted that once he’s yelled “cut” for the last time, and the final cut is sent to print, he doesn’t want “anything to do with them.”

Per The Guardian:

Oh God, no. Don’t ever make me do that. I don’t want to see them again. I see the mistakes. »

Josh Brolin Bigs Up Thanos Ahead Of Avengers: Infinity War; Reveals The Godfather References

18 hours ago

As things stand, Josh Brolin finds himself in the rather fortunate (or should that be unfortunate?) position of playing not one, but two major comic book villains.

The first is Cable/Nathan Summers (Deadpool 2), who is arguably more of an anti-hero than an out-and-out antagonist. Thanos, on the other hand, is evil personified; an alien deity who descends upon planet Earth in order to retrieve the Infinity Stones. That Infinity Gauntlet isn’t going to fill itself, after all.

And so begins Avengers: Infinity War, Joe and Anthony Russo’s 2018 event movie that will soon bring together all of the many, many elements of Marvel’s cinematic universe. Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may have faced grave threats before (see: Ultron and the Chitauri), but as Josh Brolin himself tells Collider, Thanos is “next level.”

Dude, I’m in a position just personally where not everybody loves me and that’s okay (laughs). Look, »

The Critics Are Gushing Over Thor: Ragnarok

18 hours ago

The embargo has lifted and the floodgates are open, but what are the critics saying about Thor: Ragnarok?

Well, it looks like Marvel Studios has delivered yet another slam dunk, as the early critical consensus has deemed Taika Waititi’s space opera to be the most outrageous entry into the McU yet. It’s a “crazy, colorful, ambitious and hilarious” thrill ride through the cosmos, and the superlatives don’t end there.

Granted, for those of you out there who have kept track of Ragnarok‘s production, this onslaught of reviews won’t be too surprising, as Marvel’s third and final film of 2017 was already generating positive buzz long before today’s embargo lifted. Heck, even Guardians director James Gunn was full of praise coming out of an early screening.

And it looks as though that momentum will continue to build right up until Thor: Ragnarok‘s arrival on November 3rd. »

Meet Martian Manhunter’s Dad In Supergirl Season 3, Episode 3 Images

18 hours ago

Supergirl season 3 continues next week with episode 3, titled “Far From The Tree,” which will be a must-watch installment for fans of Martian Manhunter. Not only does it see the return of M’gann M’orzz Aka Miss Martian (Sharon Leal), but J’onn J’onzz (David Harewood) will also meet his long lost father, M’yrnn J’onzz (Carl Lumbly).

Longtime DC TV fans will know that Lumbly is perfect casting as J’onzz’s dad, given that the actor previously voiced Martian Manhunter himself in the beloved Justice League animated series and its follow-up Justice League Unlimited. He’s still the definitive version of the Last Son of Mars for many fans of a certain age, so it’s great that he’s returning to the DC family in Supergirl. On top of Smallville‘s Erica Durance also coming aboard as Kara’s mother Alura, this season of the »

Could Obadiah Stane Return To The McU?

18 hours ago

Now that we’re coming to the end of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems a greater level of behind-the-scenes detail about the earliest days of the franchise is coming to light. Previously a closely guarded secret, we’re now learning about the script changes, character shifts, and late alterations to the stories of the most iconic films of the McU – including the Iron Man trilogy. To that end, producer Kevin Feige has recently been discussing the idea of Obadiah Stane returning to the fold.

Obadiah Stane was the primary villain of the very first instalment of the McU – Iron Man. Stane (Jeff Bridges) was a mentor and business partner to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), but was soon revealed to be a corrupt megalomaniac who would stop at nothing to protect his investment in Stark Industries – even to the extent of becoming supervillain Iron Monger.

Did Scott Derrickson Just Confirm His Involvement With Doctor Strange 2?

18 hours ago

To date, Marvel Studios have done a commendable job when it came to making the likes of Iron Man and Thor household names. Really, they weren’t exactly well known to the general public outside of comic book readers before their motion pictures took off.

Not surprisingly, they were able to continue this trend with other properties such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man and even Doctor Strange, all of which have enjoyed varying levels of success. Truth be told, these were all gambles at first, no matter how well the superhero genre has been paying off at the box office in recent years.

The Walking Dead: Catch Another Sneak Peek Of Sunday’s Premiere

19 hours ago

The Walking Dead season 8 is now so close we can almost smell the rotting flesh wafting up from AMC’s sea of undead walkers.

It’ll kick off with the super-sized “Mercy” on October 22nd, and in order to give budding fans a sneak peek of what’s to come, AMC has unleashed another tense clip from season 8’s premiere. Opening with a shot of Morgan surveying the scene, Lennie James’ gruff survivor then reunites with his allies – namely Carol and Daryl Dixon – as they begin to formulate the next part of their plan.

And just as we’re beginning to think that the silence is deafening, a horde of walkers marches into view, leaving Daryl with no choice but to stay behind in order to spring the trap – providing this is the same scene included in season 8’s other trailers, which see Norman Reedus’ character speeding away from an explosion on his trusty motorbike. »

How Aliens Almost Invaded The Walking Dead

19 hours ago

Over the past fourteen years of the franchise, across multiple mediums, The Walking Dead has had it all. An endless stream of great characters, shocking deaths, an abundance of gore and violence, larger than life villains, alien invasions…

What? You don’t remember when Rick and co. battled extra-terrestrials, who were revealed to be behind the whole zombie apocalypse in the first place? Well, let’s jog your memory.

Back in 2010, issue #75 of the comic book included a “twist ending” as it saw Rick wake up in a full-colour comic book world where he and his friends wore superhero costumes and battled zombies and aliens with lightsabers and all kinds of cyborg embellishments. It only ran for about eight pages, but it so thoroughly jumped the shark in every way that some fans totally missed the fact that this was one big joke and subsequently complained that the comic was “ruined” forever. »
