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...

'Evil Dead' Director Explains Why He Made 'Don't Breathe'

Mon, 08/22/2016 - 09:00

Hollywood careers tend to follow a pretty simple equation. Success begets success. If someone has a hit, their value in the industry goes up and they use it to get a bigger project, with the presumed end game being to land those blockbusters that you see on billboards and during Super Bowl commercial breaks.  Director Fede Alvarez doesn't necessarily believe in that. His debut feature, 2013's Evil Dead, was a huge hit, so naturally you'd think his next...

Mon, 08/22/2016 - 07:09

Ben Affleck has another new directing gig, and it's not for a Batman movie. This one will actually take him back into the courtroom, which might remind him of another superhero he's played. It's a new version of Witness for the Prosecution, based on the Agatha Christie story and previously made into a movie by Billy Wilder in 1957.  Deadline reports that Affleck will also star in the drama and produce alongside Matt Damon and their partner Jennifer Todd.

Can Your Kids Handle 'Kubo'? A Mom and Her 7 Year Old Review the Movie

Sun, 08/21/2016 - 19:45

Our children are accustomed to stories beginning with the words “once upon a time.” Those words immediately alert our kids that something magical is about to be told, something maybe unreal or mystical. Something special. Kubo and the Two Strings begins with its version of “once upon a time” when Kubo, a boy voiced by Art Parkinson, boldly says, “If you must blink, do it now. Pay careful attention to everything you see no matter how unusual it may seem. If you...

Adam West and Burt Ward Are Back for a New Batman Animated Movie

Fri, 08/19/2016 - 05:16

If you're getting sick of the darker side of Batman movies and TV shows, which has even overtaken the cartoon versions of the character with the recent R-rated The Killing Joke, you're in for a treat next month. The campy Dynamic Duo from the 1960s TV series are back to save the day with an all-new animated feature. Titled Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, the movie will feature the voices of Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, and Julie Newmar reprising her...

Jared Leto Joins the Already-Stacked Cast of 'Blade Runner 2'

Fri, 08/19/2016 - 05:10

There aren't very many major characters in the first Blade Runner. You've got Harrison Ford as the Replicant hunter, Deckard, and then a small handful of people, most of whom don't survive the movie very long. As massive as Ridley Scott's movie is in its scope, it's actually a rather small story. If the cast list for Blade Runner 2 is any indication, however, things are definitely going to be bigger this time around.  Jared Leto is the latest to join, which brings us...

Fri, 08/19/2016 - 04:55

When Disney Channel star Zendaya (above) was confirmed for the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast back in March, we wondered which character she might be portraying. Rumors at the time suggested that she might be playing a new character named Michelle, rather than previously established characters such as Mary Jane Watson or Gwen Stacy. More recently, director Jon Watts (Cop Car, Clown) identified the roles five young actors would be playing in the movie. According to Watts, Zendadya had been cast...
