The one film you'd least expect to be so much fun while at the same time smashing the Bechdel test into pieces is xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But the Vin Diesel-starring vehicle does it with ease. Not only that, but it also celebrates some of the biggest global stars without painting them as a villain. It would be way too easy to look past this film, given that it is not part of a very successful franchise. However, the sequel doesn't care about any of that. Instead, it raises the bar on absurd stunts and pushes the envelope on logic and physics. So much so that the film actually gets meta and pokes fun at itself. But really, if you look past all of that, you'll see that it is actually a celebration of global stars and fierce women.
We got a chance recently to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Diesel and some of the cast of the film from Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, and Nina Dobrev to its director, D.J. Caruso. Each of one of them sharing the Diesel's sentiment and all of them agreeing that it was so much fun to be a part of. Check out what they had to say here [...]

McDonald's is about as American as apple pie, and they serve apple pie, so it goes full circle. But like any good organization, there is a history behind it. So in John Lee Hancock's The Founder, this is the history of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) turned himself from a small town milkshake salesman into the multi-million dollar owner of McDonald's. But this is no ordinary story of a nobody turning himself into something than just a somebody, it is a story of how Kroc did it, which consisted of backdoor deals and underhanded tactics that ripped a beloved restaurant from two humble brothers [...]

It never ceases to amaze me how much passion Vin Diesel has in seemingly dead in the water projects. Fast and Furious and Riddick were two Diesel franchise vehicles that never really got off the ground when they launched, but because of his dedication to the fans, they got sequels. The former much more popular than the latter, but the actor took it upon himself to breathe new life into the xXx films with xXx: Return of Xander Cage.
Never let it be said that Diesel doesn't know how to have fun, because in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, there is plenty of it. There's no political message, no over-sexualization of either gender, and no xenophobic thoughts. Instead, the film treats us to something everyone can enjoy [...]

As Warner Bros. unite the various DC heroes for the DCEU, one hero's spot on the superhero ensemble remained uncertain. It has only been a few years since we've heard anything about WB's Shazam, but early reports say that he might not even be on the team. Since Dwayne Johnson accepted the role of Black Adam in 2014, the actor as called the character an anti-hero, which is contrary to how he's normally depicted in the comics, which is to serve as a villain to the heroic Shazam.
Now there are reports that Black Adam and Shazam will be two separate films entirely. Not only that, but Black Adam will also appear in Shazam as well. More on the story below. [...]

I am always down for a giant monster movie. Even when it's an incredibly strange giant monster movie.
We first heard about Colossal starring Anne Hathaway back in 2015, when it was described as Godzilla and Transformers meets one of Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze's collaborations, Adaptation and Being John Malkovich.
Now the first teaser trailer for Colossal has been released, and it looks to live up to those comparisons. In it a monster is wreaking havoc on Seoul, South Korea, but as it turns out, that monster is somehow being controlled by Hathaway's character. You can see how that wacky description looks in the trailer below! [...]

One of the many things Pixar is known for, is including Easter Eggs in their movies that connect said movies to other movies they've made. They do it so often, in fact, that a popular fan theory is that every movie they make is set in the same world.
A new video has been released which supports this theory in a lot of ways, showcasing a bunch of these Easter Egg connections. From humans to toys, bugs to cars, monsters to machines, the connections find their way to them all.

Spoilers below for the FX series Taboo:
Last week we were introduced to the latest bizarre series from FX, a series years in the making for star and co creator Tom Hardy called Taboo. Hardy plays James Keziah Delaney, who was thought dead, drowned en route to Africa. Unfortunately for those who look to profit from his father’s death, Delaney is very much alive and the sole inheritor of his father’s trading empire and possession of a crucial piece of land, Nootka Sound, located between British-controlled Canada and the United States. Being that this is 1814 and the War of 1812 is entering its final stretch, this land is important, especially to the British East India Company and its head, Sir Stuart Strange (Jonathan Pryce), who tries unsuccessfully to buy the land from Delaney. Delaney has other ideas, some of which include finding out who poisoned his father, and also a possible rekindling of things with his half-sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin) [...]

When it comes to kitchen gadgets, usually we buy them because they make something annoying much easier. Or claim to, anyway. But sometimes one comes along that might not be essential in your kitchen, but is a must-own anyway.
That's where the Ravanello comes into the picture. This little tool isn't necessarily a life-changer, but what it does do geeks everywhere will without question throw their hard earned coin at to own. The Ravanello takes your basic everyday radish, and transforms it into a mushroom. No, not an actual mushroom. That would be incredible, and cost a hell of a lot more. But it does make it look like a mushroom---more specifically, one of those oh so familiar mushrooms from the Super Mario video game series and its spinoffs.
