Donald Glover Will Be Lando Calrissian in the 'Han Solo' Movie

Fri, 10/21/2016 - 13:36

Donald Glover (Community, Magic Mike XXL) is one of those young actors that fans keep wanting to cast in everything. He's funny, charismatic, handsome, quick witted and has that kind of boy-next-door air to him that Hollywood loves. Most notably there was a huge campaign for him to play Spider-Man, though obviously that ended up not happening (in live action, at least). As soon as Disney officially announced its Star Wars prequel film about a young Han Solo, Glover's name once...

'Rogue One' Made Joss Whedon Want to Direct a 'Star Wars' Movie

Fri, 10/21/2016 - 06:05

When a filmmaker reaches a certain level of the Hollywood stratosphere it's easy to imagine that they're plugged into everything, that they've got hookups and insights the rest of us normal people can only dream of. And while that's no doubt true for many, some try to stay as relatively normal as they can. Take Avengers director Joss Whedon for example. He's made some of the most popular films and TV shows of all time, but he still sits at home with his daughter watching...

'Aquaman' to Be Like 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' Meets 'Romancing the Stone,' Says Director

Fri, 10/21/2016 - 06:02

What sort of movie will Aquaman prove to be? The individual elements sound intriguing. Jason Momoa proved his action credentials on TV's Game of Thrones as well as the new version of Conan the Barbarian, so he sounds like a splendid selection to be Aquaman. Amber Heard has appeared in a variety of comic and dramatic roles over her career and is a great choice as Mera, Queen of Atlantis, while the wonderfully versatile Willem Dafoe will undoubtedly bring some of his trademark edge to...

Check Out the Teaser Trailer and Poster for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 09:05

The best way to describe the first teaser trailer and poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is, well, chillaxed.  In the poster, the main cast is front and center, chilling up against some wall like they own the joint. It looks like the cover of an album some rock band would put out in the '70s -- all cool, calm and black and white; it's almost as if this crew is a little bored of being badasses. Case in point: the amusing use of the word "obviously" below the...

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 09:00

Nothing comes between a man and his dog -- until it does, and then all hell breaks loose in In a Valley of Violence, a Western reminiscent of Quentin Tarantino and old spaghetti Westerns with a mean sense of humor and twisted performances from Ethan Hawke, John Travolta and Taissa Farmiga. In the movie, Hawke plays a stranger who comes to a rundown town ruled by a crooked sheriff (Travolta), whose son (James Ransone) has a problem with the new arrivals. This sets off a chain of events you...

If you're a hard-core Star Wars fan who already owns a copy of The Force Awakens and needs a major incentive to also pick up the upcoming 3D Collector's Edition Blu-ray, we've got some.

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 06:29

Gore Verbinski is best known for making massive blockbuster films with increasingly elaborate action set pieces. That's just what happens when you make something like the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy that goes on to earn over a billion dollars and become a legit pop-culture phenomenon. But Verbinski is more than capable of keeping things small and intimate. In fact, he thrives when making the smaller stuff. One of Verbinski's finest films is the 2002's The Ring, a...

If October has you in the mood to watch a new horror movie on the big screen, unfortunately this year your options are pretty limited.

Directed by Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus), Ouija: Origin of Evil is, as the name implies, a prequel to the 2014 movie about teens who make...

It's those very familiar themes that will apparently be explored in The Boss Baby, a new animated film from DreamWorks Animation due out March 31, 2017. It features the voice of Alec Baldwin as a baby who wreaks havoc on a seven year...
