13 hours 15 min ago

Even though we've had countless movies remind us that the more advanced robots become, the more likely they are to free themselves of our command and destroy everything and everyone, we as a collective civilization still continue to forge ahead and push technology to its inevitable Terminator-like conclusion. With that said, there's a new film coming out soon called Morgan. It's in the realm of films like Ex Machina in that it tracks a risk-management consultant (Kate Mara) who...

Captain America Is No Longer Captain America, Apparently

13 hours 23 min ago

Soaring above other blockbusters this year, Captain America: Civil War brought serious conflict into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ever since Marvel's superheroes began teaming up on the big screen, there has been a degree of friendly jostling between them, perhaps best exemplified in an early scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron, when various Avengers try to lift Thor's hammer A far darker rift developed, however. After what happened toward the conclusion of Avengers: Age of...

'Gambit' Director Leaves for DC's 'Justice League Dark'

Thu, 08/25/2016 - 10:24

Good news for Warner Bros., bad news for Fox?  Director Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) has abandoned Fox's Gambit, still starring Channing Tatum, for the DC project Justice League Dark, Variety reported yesterday. Perhaps anticipating Marvel's Dr. Strange, the film explores fringe supernatural characters in the DC universe like John Constantine (played by Keanu Reeves in 2005's Constantine), Deadman, Zatanna, Etrigan the Demon, Madame Xanadu and...

'Sully' Exclusive Clip: "We're Gonna End Up in the Hudson"

Thu, 08/25/2016 - 09:00

We all remember that unbelievable day back in 2009 when a pilot managed to safely land a US Airways passenger jet into the Hudson River, saving all 155 people aboard. We would come to label that pilot, Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, a hero for bravely navigating the plane after a flock of geese took out its jets, choosing to glide into the water below rather than chancing a U-turn back to the airport.  Even as we were reading stories about his courage and skill, there is,...

A Trio of Directors Emerge as Early Contenders for 'Captain Marvel'

Thu, 08/25/2016 - 06:18

There was a time when it might have seemed odd to cast the lead of a movie that was years away before you even hired a director, but it's become an increasingly common practice in a Hollywood system where studios stake out release dates before anyone has even read a script. The (very successful) way Marvel makes its movies has turned this process into a necessity. Characters can pop up in different movies before they get their own, which is precisely what's expected to happen with...

Thu, 08/25/2016 - 06:03

In a nationwide poll conducted by Fandango, moviegoers revealed their most anticipated movies of the upcoming season. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them topped the list, which is really no surprise, in view of the continuing popularity of the Harry Potter universe created by J.K. Rowling. The new movie may be a prequel, taking place some 70 years before Harry Potter heads to Hogwarts, but the adventures of writer Eddie Redmayne in and around a secret community of wizards and witches in...

Idris Elba Wants to Become a Real Kickboxer

Wed, 08/24/2016 - 06:13

Before he was one of the most sought-after A-list directors around, Jon Favreau was an actor. His most notable TV role was an arc on Friends where he played Pete, a billionaire in love with Monica. His storyline ends rather abruptly, though, when he declares his life goal is to become the Ultimate Fighting Champion. So he puts everything aside, trains day and night, and then fails miserably and is never really heard from again. Before he was one of the most sought-after A-list actors...

News Briefs: What 'Rogue One' Means, According to the Director

Tue, 08/23/2016 - 19:20

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: We know that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will revolve around a group of rebels as they attempt to steal the plans for the evil Death Star, but what does the title itself actually mean? Director Gareth Edwards says it's "a military call sign to some extent" and notes the movie "is not part of the saga -- or the Anakin story -- so it’s the 'rogue' one, you know?" Edward also says it refers to the roguish personality of Jyn Erso...

Watch: Halle Berry Is Like the Anti-Liam Neeson in First 'Kidnap' Trailer

Tue, 08/23/2016 - 06:51

Person gets kidnapped; someone who cares about said kidnapped person comes looking for them. It's a hard movie formula to mess up, plus when it's done right it can be hugely successful--like Taken. Not only did that spawn a franchise (and soon a TV series), but it also gave us one of the best phone conversations ever captured on film: "I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have is a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long...

Laika Animation Has No Plans to Ever Make Sequels

Tue, 08/23/2016 - 06:48

There was a time when Pixar was viewed as the greatest animation brand in the land -- at least as far as American studios go. Then the company started making too many sequels, some of them not so brilliant, and diluted its reputation. While that was going on, Laika Entertainment has stepped into the circle of praise. In seven years, the Laika team only exclusively produced four features, including the new release Kubo and the Two Strings, but as they aim to amp up their output they...

Marvel Bits: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Face a Crazy New Creature

Tue, 08/23/2016 - 06:42

If you're going to call a group of heroes the Guardians of the Galaxy, you'd do well to give them something pretty serious to guard against. Enter this giant, tentacled monster that looks like the Sarlacc pit from Star Wars hooked up with the Kraken from the Clash of the Titans remake.  James Gunn shared the concept art on his Twitter account, where he later clarified that this big bad is called an Abilisk. A quick search for Abilisk in reference to Marvel comics doesn't...
