Has Rey’s Connection To The Prequel Trilogy In The Last Jedi Been Revealed?

2 hours ago

Of all the question marks hanging over the current series of Star Wars movies, probably the most hotly-contested is the mystery of Rey’s origins. The various theories about where Daisy Ridley’s heroine comes from range from the highly plausible – she’s Luke or Obi-Wan’s daughter – to the downright head-scratching – she’s possessed by the ghost of Palpatine (or something).

Of course, we still don’t have any concrete answers, and likely won’t for some time, but a new rumour has now been bandied about and it’s pretty compelling. In a recent video, YouTuber Mike Zeroh discussed his latest theory, which puts forth the idea that Rey has a major connection to the prequel trilogy, in that her character is a continuation of an important concept introduced back in 1999’s The Phantom Menace.

“We heard a couple of months ago that director Rian Johnson inserted prequel »

Salva Already Plotting Jeepers Creepers 4; Mooted Sequel Would Take Things In A “Whole New Direction”

3 hours ago

Unlike most other horror threequels, Jeepers Creepers 3 bucks tradition by situating its story between the events of Jeepers Creepers 1 and 2, and though it’s taken an awful long time to take flight, Victor Salva’s nightmarish vision is about to slither onto the silver screen.

But what of the franchise’s future? A Jeepers Creepers 4 has already been pitched before, when it was revealed back in May that Salva had been quietly plotting a new continuation in the Creeper saga. That’s something that series mainstay Jonathan Breck (The Creeper) echoed during an exhaustive interview with IGN, one that touched on everything from make-up and prosthetics to Salva’s criminal record. For the record: Breck is firmly of the belief that the contentious filmmaker deserves a second chance.

As for a potential fourth film, it’s not off the table:

Yeah, if we’re lucky enough to have it happen. »

New Gotham Promo Focuses On Proto-Batman Costume

3 hours ago

After turning in an impressive season premiere last Thursday night, the cast and crew of Gotham look to keep the ball rolling with next week’s episode, “A Dark Knight: The Fear Reaper.” From that foreboding title, you can probably surmise that the Scarecrow will play a huge role, no doubt confounding Jim Gordon and the rest of the Gcpd at every turn.

Also deserving your attention is another detailed look at Bruce Wayne’s proto-Batman costume, which will apparently make its debut in the very same episode. Much like in Batman Begins, the burgeoning vigilante gets his threads and tech from Lucius Fox, only this time we have Chris Chalk in place of Morgan Freeman. Although it’s a little on the nose, the polite nod won’t go unappreciated.

Sure, we may have scoffed at what looks more like Midnighter’s outfit at first, but this whole »

Jeepers Creepers 3 Star Jonathan Breck Believes Victor Salva Deserves A “Second Chance”

3 hours ago

Director Victor Salva has caused quite the stir going into the release of Jeepers Creepers 3. And that’s putting it mildly.

Now teetering on the verge of its contentious theatrical debut, the film has sparked heated debate across the four corners of the Internet, with horror fans essentially deliberating the fate of Salva’s latest venture. On the one hand, there are those out there who plan to vote with their wallet and forego Jeepers Creepers 3 entirely – hence those threats of protesting late last month – while others are of the belief that Victor Salva deserves a second chance despite his dubious past.

In case you’re not in the know: the filmmaker was accused of sexual misconduct with a minor almost two decades ago, and served 15 months in state prison. Also of note, his victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since issued a statement to say that it’s really up »

Matt Smith Says Jodie Whittaker Will Be The Best Doctor

3 hours ago

There may be some fans out there who have misgivings about their hero becoming a woman, but the cast of Doctor Who have been overwhelmingly positive about Jodie Whittaker being selected as the Thirteenth Doctor. Past stars like Christopher Eccleston, David TennantColin Baker and Karen Gillan have all heaped praise on the Broadchurch actress since she was revealed to have nabbed the coveted part back in July, and most fans seem to be on board with the decision, too.

Speaking to The Anglophile Channel, the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, added in his own two cents as well and, unsurprisingly, he’s over the moon with Whittaker’s casting.

“She’ll be brilliant. She’s a brilliant actress, a great person. She’s warm, intelligent, charming and funny, I think she’s everything you need for the show. I’m so excited, I simply cannot wait. She’s gonna be the best. »

Nightwing Director Keeps Us Posted On Film’s Casting

4 hours ago

Knowing how broad the horizon is when it comes to DC films said to be arriving in theaters over the course of the next few years, I’ll be bold in saying that the movie I’m most looking forward to in a post-Justice League world may very well be Nightwing. Sure, my favorite character may be Batman himself, but we’ve grown quite accustomed to seeing him on the big screen and, let’s face it, a picture focused squarely on the Boy Wonder grown up is long, long overdue.

Luckily, it sounds like Warner Bros. have found the right guy to sit in the director’s chair, that being Chris McKay. Having already made the studio some serious dough with The Lego Batman Movie, the filmmaker looks to continue his stay in Gotham City. Truth be told, I was concerned as to whether he was the man for the job at first, »

Early Reviews Deem Blade Runner 2049 A Worthy, “Mind-Blowing” Sequel

4 hours ago

Blade Runner 2049 has been a long time coming – too long, perhaps – but it looks like Denis Villeneuve and Co. have pulled off the impossible: to deliver a worthy sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi masterclass.

In anticipation of 2049‘s theatrical release on October 6th, the first reviews are beginning to slip onto the interwebs, and they’re nothing short of spectacular. Embedded below, you’ll find such superlatives as “breathtaking,” “phenomenal” and “visually mind-blowing” littered across this collection of Tweets, which only has us all the more excited to delve into the final reviews once they’re published online.

Granted, as one critic points out, Blade Runner 2049 is teeming with potential spoilers, so perhaps it’s best going into Villeneuve’s sequel blind – not unlike Jared Leto’s peculiar Replicant creator, Niander Wallace. Indeed, the Suicide Squad actor is said to play a fairly instrumental role in 2049, as »

Doctor Who Christmas Special Will Recreate Classic Scenes

4 hours ago

At the end of the Doctor Who season 10 finale, the Twelfth Doctor bumped into himself, as David Bradley’s First Doctor appeared out of the snow to interrupt his future self’s regeneration. The scene promised a very fan-pleasing Christmas special to come, which we know will feature the two Doctors teaming up, before Peter Capaldi bows out of the show for good.

It appears that the special will be even more of a love letter to the past than we realized, though, as some new comments from director Rachel Talalay suggest that whole scenes from a classic story will be recreated in the new episode. We know that the First Doctor we meet in this instalment will be at the end of his life, which means there will definitely be some crossover with 1966’s “The Tenth Planet,” which saw Doctor No. 1 regenerate into Doctor No. 2.

HBO Unveils Roster Of Directors For Game Of Thrones Season 8

4 hours ago

It’s the beginning of the end, folks.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, HBO has today announced the directors assigned to Game of Thrones season 8 ahead of production getting underway late next month. Among the familiar faces are series showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, while sources close to THR suggest that the duo will helm the series finale – one that won’t tee up those much-touted successor series, despite claims to the contrary.

Also included in that roster of talent are Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter, who have amassed a number of notable directing credits on Thrones thanks to their work across seasons 5 and 6. Sapochnik, for instance, is the creative mind responsible for the chilling “Hardhome” and “Battle of the Bastards,” an episode that many believe to be one of the very best in the show’s decorated history. On the other hand, David Nutter has helmed a total of six Game of Thrones instalments, »

Teen Titans Go! Slated For Summer 2018 Theatrical Release

4 hours ago

Well, you can file this one under “things we never saw coming.” To everyone’s surprise, Warner Bros. have decided which film they’ll fill the June 1, 2018 slot with. Not only have they chosen it to be Teen Titans Go!, but the studio has also pushed it back ever so slightly to July 27, 2018.

Right now, plot details remain under wraps, but it’s expected that the feature film be a larger scale continuation of the adventures seen on the Cartoon Network animated series of the same name. As a successor of the original Teen Titans show, the newer incarnation is much more light-hearted, as its 11-minute episodes focus more on whimsy, song and other things that have proven to be highly divisive amongst DC fans. Still, it’s found a rather devoted viewing audience, especially with the younger crowd. Thus, we fully anticipate that Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg and »

It’s Canary Vs. Canary In This New Arrow Featurette

5 hours ago

In its five year history, Arrow has managed to produce a lineage of Canaries that’s starting to rival the number of Robins that Batman has accrued. First, Sara Lance broke the ice as the Canary (keep in mind that she never used “Black” as a prefix), with her sister, Laurel, following in her footsteps as the first proper Black Canary. And although neither women were metahumans and instead relied on hypersonic technology to produce their “Canary Cry,” both boasted loyal fanbases.

But after Laurel was killed off in season 4, the viewing audience was damn near ready to riot because the character is such a key component in the Green Arrow mythos. Luckily, we were introduced to Dinah Drake (played by Juliana Harkavy), whom some of you may know as the Golden Age Black Canary from the comics, in season 5.

First Pic For Alex Garland’s Annihilation Surfaces From Area X; Director Teases “Strange, Dream-Like” World

5 hours ago

Area X is not your average patch of American land.

Over the years, no less than 11 expeditions have crossed the border into Jeff VanderMeer’s preternatural territory, only to return with strange illnesses or crippling cancer. Assuming they returned at all. Undeterred by this horrible track record, the Powers That Be mount an all-female 12th expedition to Area X, featuring a team comprised of an anthropologist, surveyor, biologist, and psychologist.

That is, in a nutshell, the elevator pitch of Annihilation, VanderMeer’s literary trilogy-starter that’s headed for the big screen under the watchful eye of Alex Garland (Dredd, Ex Machina). Pegged for a release in February of 2017, Garland’s adaptation has tapped an all-star cast headed up by Natalie Portman, who can be seen getting up close and personal with the bizarre wildlife in EW’s first-look still.

On board to play the curious biologist, Portman will be flanked by Jennifer Jason Leigh, »

Supergirl Casts Amy Jackson As Saturn Girl

5 hours ago

Now that the season premiere of Supergirl is just under two weeks away, more hot news pertaining to the Maiden of Might is finding its way online. Just last week, we learned that she’ll be appearing in this fall’s four-show DC TV crossover, “Crisis on Earth-x,” and, yesterday, we were treated to a healthy supply of photos taken from season 3’s opening episode.

As you may have guessed, the hits just keep on coming. According to Entertainment Weekly, Bollywood actress Amy Jackson has landed the recurring role of Imra Ardeen Aka Saturn Girl, “a kind, smart, and strong-willed hero who uses her telekinetic ability to help those in need. She was born on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, and arrives on Earth to help Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) battle one of her biggest threats.”

New Promo Introduces Us To The Justice League And Their Team Dynamic

6 hours ago

Warner Bros. seems to be taking an interesting approach to the international marketing build up for Justice League, as this latest promotional spot demonstrates. The video is essentially new packaging for the trailer, aimed at Japan, but has the core cast introducing their characters and providing a little insight to where we’ll find them in their lives when the movie begins.

Ben Affleck describes Batman as having been inspired to lead, as a result of witnessing Superman’s sacrifice. Gal Gadot frames her description of Wonder Woman within her relationship to Batman – stating that they are perfect “partners.” Jason Momoa refers to Aquaman’s reluctance to embrace his status as heir to the throne of Atlantis, and his desire to avoid accepting the responsibility that goes along with it. Ray Fisher describes Cyborg as “unique,” and being like a “tank” that can interface with any technology. Ezra Miller, by contrast, »

Mark Hamill Admits To Being Intimidated By His Star Wars Return

6 hours ago

By this stage in the game, Mark Hamill is practically synonymous with the Star Wars franchise.

Despite a lengthy absence from Lucasfilm’s prized series, during which time George Lucas and Co. launched the widely derided prequel saga, Hamill appeared briefly in The Force Awakens two years ago, when it was revealed that his Jedi Master had been hiding on the remote backwater planet of Ahch-To.

Fast forward to 2017, and with The Last Jedi looming on the horizon, the series mainstay spoke at length with StarWars.com about slipping back into the Skywalker robes, the wonderfully extravagant Canto Bight, and the sheer scope and scale of Rian Johnson’s long-anticipated sequel. And though one might assume that Mark Hamill was beside himself with excitement leading up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the veteran actor admitted to feeling intimidated and indeed terrified by his Star Wars return.

Alternative Design For Jurassic World’s Indominus Rex Reveals A Very Different Breed Of Man-Made Dino

6 hours ago

We have an asset out of containment!

The Indominus Rex, InGen’s crowning achievement and, simultaneously, its worst nightmare, was an incredibly intelligent dinosaur hybrid that fused together DNA from the regular ol’ Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, cuttlefish, tree frogs, and a pit viper to create a rampaging killing machine of epic proportions. Otherwise known as I. Rex – or, the “fierce and untameable king” – the Indominus was arguably the one true antagonist of Jurassic World, and it turns out the creative minds at Universal once considered some radically alternate designs for the man-made beast.

First spotted by ScreenGeek, concept artist Ian Joyner has shared a scrapped render that painted Indominus in a completely new light. Bolstered by that cuttlefish DNA, the I. Rex is able to use camouflage to blend in with its surrounding environment – hence the ash-grey skin color of the final design – but down below, you’ll be able »

NBA 2K18 Review

6 hours ago

Last weekend, I got a group of friends together to play a few sports games. We hung out, ate some pizza, and played a number of matches throughout the day. As you might have guessed (since you’re reading this review), one of the games we spent a good chunk of time with was NBA 2K18. For hours, we had fun doing nothing but going back and forth, taking turns by passing the controller around. There were blowouts, there were close games (one even went to overtime), and in the end, I walked away feeling like NBA 2K18 was one of the best party games I played this year.

Then the next day, I sat down to fool around in the rest of the modes, and get a full taste of what developer Visual Concepts had to offer. I was completely ready to give NBA 2K18 a great review based »

Wgtc Recaps MeggaXP 3

7 hours ago

Being someone who has covered their share of conventions, I have a general idea of what to expect from events of varying sizes. Basically, you have your big shows that are chock full of celebrity guests, vendors and activities, and then you have your smaller ones that are made up mostly by vendors but can be great places to score some cool collectibles.

As it turns out, there’s something that blurs the lines.

Technically, MeggaXP is considered a smaller con, but what James Seagraves and company do exceedingly well each time is making sure that you have an experience. Sure, they were unfortunately unable to secure some celebrity guests this time around, but what they did boast were a heck of a lot of vendors, local artists and crafters, and more than enough to keep you occupied if you felt like kicking up your heels.

In a nutshell, there were a host of panels, »

Sterile New Posters For Jigsaw Raise Awareness For A Good Cause

7 hours ago

For a horror series renown for its grotesque, toe-curling deaths, Lionsgate’s Saw series actually helps save a lot of lives.

Since the franchise first flickered into life in 2004, the Saw Blood Drive has been a time-honored tradition that encourages film fans to donate blood at various locations across the United States, and it’ll be returning next month to commemorate the release of Jigsaw.

Coming by way of Daybreakers duo Michael and Peter Spierig, Jigsaw is a horror sequel that raises some reasonable question marks over Saw: The Final Chapter‘s evocative, and seemingly conclusive title. Nevertheless, John Kramer is back – or, at least, his disciples are back – for a horror spiel involving sick, twisted traps and mutilated corpses. Wanna’ play a game?

As for the Jigsaw Blood Drive, those brave participants who donate blood for what is undoubtedly a great cause will receive a free ticket to bear »

Black Panther’s “Kinetic” Action Scenes Dubbed A Potent Blend Of Creed And Kingsman

7 hours ago

Aside from the fact that Marvel’s Black Panther spinoff is the final McU flick to precede the all-encompassing Avengers: Infinity War, the Ryan Coogler-directed origin movie is about to become the studio’s first big-budget blockbuster to be anchored by a black superhero.

That responsibility has been thrust on the burly shoulders of Chadwick Boseman, who made his Marvel debut via Captain America: Civil War back in 2016. Indeed, Joe and Anthony Russo’s super-sized ensemble movie helped lay the groundwork for Black Panther in that King T’Chaka of Wakanda, father to the young T’Challa (Boseman), was killed off during the opening portion of Civil War.

His death sent shockwaves all the way to the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Considered the rightful heir by the late T’Chaka, Chadwick Boseman’s title lead assumes the throne, but there are those who believe the young, wet-behind-the-ears T’Challa is unfit to rule. »
