Nine Things We Learned At The ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Press Conference

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 00:55:18 +0000

(image)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi immediately follows the events of The Force Awakens, with Rey looking to Luke Skywalker to train her in the ways of the Force, while the Resistance is in shambles as the First Order begins to make major power moves. However, there is still a lot we don't know about the film. Luckily director Rian Johnson, along with stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis were at a recent press conference to talk as much about the film as they could without spoiling anything.

Geeks of Doom sat down with fellow journalists to talk to the cast and crew of the film, and discovered a few interesting things about the relationship between Kylo Ren and General Hux, moving on without Han Solo, and how the theme of "never meeting your hero" plays a role in the film. Check it out below [...]

Don’t Worry, ‘Deadpool’ Will Still Be Rated R

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 20:25:24 +0000

(image)

Yes, Disney has bought 21st Century Fox. So most of their entertainment assets will belong to the mouse. That means that X-Men and Fantastic Four can now play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's sandbox. Whether or not they will remains to be seen.

But for those who were worried that Disney would tone down some of the more adult comic movies such as Deadpool, you can relax. Disney CEO Bob Iger says he intends to keep Deadpool as an R-rated movie. More on what he had to say about that and the future of rated-R Marvel movies below [...]

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 17:00:35 +0000

(image)

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has released a trailer for Woody Woodpecker, a live-action movie based on the cartoon character of the same name.

Most old favorite cartoon characters have been given or are getting some type of movie adaptation, and a Woody Woodpecker movie has been in the works for quite a while now. Back in 2011 Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio behind the Despicable Me movies, Minions, The Secret Life of Pets, Sing, the upcoming Grinch Who Stole Christmas movie, and more, was set to make a Woody movie. That ultimately didn't work out, and it eventually became this live-action movie.

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 15:00:12 +0000

The SAG Awards honor and recognize the best the performances of the year, and are often seen as an early indicator of who will win the Academy Awards for Best Actor and Actress, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress. Basically, each guild has their own awards ceremony to honor those within the industry and guild. And now that awards season is in full swing we are about to get to see more and more names being nominated for their work.

Following yesterday's Golden Globe nominees, comes the SAG nominations. And what you will see is a strange disparity between the two as The Shape of Water got shut out of the Best Ensemble, while The Big Sick got recognized for Best Supporting Actress and Best Ensemble. Check out the nominations below [...]

It’s Official: Disney Buys Fox For Over $52 Billion

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 13:45:08 +0000

(image)

We've been hearing whispers that the mega-deal between The Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox could happen as soon as Thursday, and this morning it became official: Disney has purchased Fox for around $52.4 billion. Disney is also inheriting around $13.7 billion of debt, making the total cost of the deal about $66 billion. In the deal Disney is acquiring all entertainment properties and more, while the Fox Broadcasting news and sports assets will be spun off to shareholders under a new company.

On the entertainment side of things, this now means Disney owns and controls all of Fox's brands and titles including the X-Men and Deadpool franchises, the Avatar movies, the original Star Wars trilogy, The Simpsons and other Fox shows as well as all of the FX Network series, and even Fox's stake in Hulu, which now gives Disney controlling interest in the streaming service (making their own planned streaming service even more interesting).

‘Annihilation’ Trailer: Natalie Portman Explores The Strange and Mysterious Unknown

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 03:00:20 +0000

(image)

Based on the earlier looks at Annihilation, Ex Machina director Alex Garland's upcoming film promises to be very thought-provoking if not perplexing. For one thing, Paramount and producers are worried that the film may be too smart for the average audience. In fact, this has led to some conflicts that have occurred on set.

It's not clear what the end result will be, at least not until the film is released, but a new trailer should provide some clarity about the film. Or at least it should try to. Check it out below [...]

‘The 15:17 To Paris’ Trailer: Clint Eastwood Retells Story Of Heroism With Those Who Lived It

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 01:21:50 +0000

(image)

Heroes often say that they were just doing their job or what they've been trained to do. But that should not take away from the fact that what they did is truly extraordinary. Because no matter what they did or how many lives they saved, they were at the right place at the right time. That has been true many times, and it has also served as an inspiration for films. Like when three U.S. soldiers aboard a train to Paris risked their lives to stop a terrorist from killing passengers.

Now their selfless act will be retold by Clint Eastwood in The 15:17 to Paris. Check out the first trailer for the film below [...]

Comic Review: Klaus and The Crisis In Xmasville #1

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 00:00:34 +0000

Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville #1
Written by Grant Morrison
Art by Dan Mora
Letters by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Dan Mora, John Cassady and Laura Martin, Frank Quitely
Boom! Studios
Release Date: December 6, 2017
Cover Price: $7.99

Now here is a comic that breathes all new life into the lyrical line "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." In Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville #1, our hero is determined to right wrongs by kicking the most ass possible. If you have read the previous comic then you know he is a stubborn immortal with a penchant for getting what he wants.

Klaus has no vested interest in the mortal world, for the most part. But when one of his favors is called in, he is forced to see that a century old enmity has been revived and that which he thought was finished, is in actuality not. But this is a can of worms that he is not quite initially prepared for, though that changes quickly [...]

Indie Co-Op Title ‘A Way Out’ Will Only Require One Person To Buy Game

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 22:00:02 +0000

(image)

During the EA Play showcase during E3 2017 week this past summer, we were introduced to A Way Out, a new co-op game from the makers of the incredible indie title Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons---a game I was actually pretty shocked to discover didn't have a co-op option, but is still great. Personally, the best case scenario for me would be if both of these games had the option to play alone or with a friend. But that's just me.

During the recent Game Awards 2017, a new video for the game was released introducing the two main characters. But much more importantly than that, it has been revealed that in order for people to play this two-player co-op game, only one of the two people playing will actually have to purchase it. A very cool thing for those behind the game to do.

Continue below for additional info on A Way Out, the recently released video, and more [...]

Trailer For ‘Payday’ Developer Overkill’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Video Game Released

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 20:00:12 +0000

(image)

Way back in the year 2014, we found out that another video game set in Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead universe was being made by Payday developer Overkill Software. At the time, we had a lengthy wait ahead of us to the game's planned 2016 release. As you may have guessed by now, that wait ended up being just a teeny bit longer. The game is now set for a 2018 release.

But while we still have some waiting to do, a new trailer has been released. The game is, like Payday, a four-player co-op game. In it, you and your friends will be able to team up to see how you deal with both the living and the dead during the zombie apocalypse.

This new trailer introduces us to the first playable character, Aidan. You can check it out and read more about the game below [...]

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ and The Strength Of Women

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 18:00:27 +0000

(image)

Star Wars films have made more than an impact in film and pop culture, they have also paved the way for major revolutions. These films have opened the doors for young girls to accept their roles as heroes, or in this case Jedi. They don't have to play the role of the damsel in distress, now they can be fearless warriors fighting the good fight. And we will see more of that now that there are a lot more powerful female characters in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Whether it is Rey (Daisy Ridley) training to become a Jedi, General Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) overseeing military strategies for the Resistance, or Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) infiltrating the First Order, young girls have a lot more characters to look up to.

Geeks of Doom was invited to sit down with their fellow journalists to talk about the incredible changes that have been happening in the past few years and how having more female characters have given their young female fans someone to cheer for and quite possibly be inspired by. Check out what they had to say below [...]

‘The Nutcracker and The Four Realms’ Images Are Pure Christmas Magic

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 03:00:17 +0000

(image)

It's the time of the season, and what better way to celebrate that time than to have images promoting a Christmas movie. Of course, there are many remakes and reboots of classic Christmas movies. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Disney has released the first images for a new vision of The Nutcracker. Disney's take will be called The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Directed by Lasse Hallström, the film will be based on an adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 German fairy tale, which was turned into a ballet by Tchaikovsky.

Now we are getting a first look at the film, which is due to hit theaters late next year. Check out the first two images here [...]

Woody Harrelson In Talks To Join The Cast Of ‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff ‘Venom’

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 01:37:18 +0000

(image)

Sony's first attempt to launch a Spider-Man universe was mocked and ridiculed for trying to keep up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe by squeezing in every single possible Easter Egg you can think of into one itty bitty film. So after that was a huge disaster, the studio decided to share the character with Marvel, effectively killing the Amazing Spider-Man universe. But in doing so, they were able to re-evaluate that same universe. However, there's plenty of red tape that will not allow the Spider-Man characters Sony currently owns to play in the Marvel Studio sandbox.

So, with so many characters at their disposal, they are creating a Spider-Man less universe where all Spider-Man supporting characters can come play. As absurd as that sounds, it looks like they are drawing some major attention. Venom in particular, as it touts a cast that consists of Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate. And if that weren't impressive enough, the Ruben Fleischer-directed film will be adding Woody Harrelson to the cast. Find out more on the story below [...]

Disney and Fox Deal Could Be Finalized As Soon As Thursday

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 21:35:23 +0000

(image)

This month, The Walt Disney Company has expressed interest in acquiring 20th Century Fox, the film and television studio owned by 21st Century Fox, which would leave Fox with its sports and news divisions. Of course, when the word of this first got out, the studios called it off. But talks would resume, indicating that this deal could be a real possibility. And last week, the two studios stepped closer to making it happen.

Following up on last week's report that a deal could be finalized this week, comes word that everything could be signed on the dotted line as soon as Thursday. The cost of this deal could be up to $60 billion dollars. More on the story below [...]

Blu-ray Review: Brigsby Bear

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 19:35:10 +0000

(image)

Brigsby Bear
Blu-ray
Director: Dave McCary
Screenwriters: Kevin Costello, Kyle Mooney
Cast: Kyle Mooney, Mark Hamill, Claire Danes, Jane Adams, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Ryan Simpkins, Alexa Demie, Jorge Lendeborg Jr.
Distributor: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
Rated PG-13 | 97 Minutes
Release Date: November 14th, 2017

Combining elements of Blast From the Past, Room, and Perks of Being a Wallflower, Brigsby Bear is a wholly unique animal, and one to be greatly admired. This is a refreshingly original work of art that feels like a bizarro-world SNL sketch stretched into a 90+ minute film. Considering nearly everyone involved is connected to Saturday Night Live, it all kind of makes sense. Written by Kevin Costello and Kyle Mooney, and directed by their childhood friend Dave McCary, Brigsby Bear is full of wonder and creativity, a movie both heart-wrenching and heartwarming simultaneously. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at parts, and I spent most of the film doing some weird combination of the two.

Movie Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 17:02:25 +0000

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Director: Rian Johnson
Screenwriter: Rian Johnson
Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13| 152 Minutes
Release Date: December 15, 2017

There truly is a Star Wars for every generation. Each and every one of them is unique in there own way and a fantastical commentary on the changing times. So as we enter a future where diversity, inclusivity, and feminism are becoming widely accepted, we are going to see a new Star Wars that speaks to that. So as J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens is that spark in feminism for Rey and Leia, and diversity in Finn and Poe, Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the fire that burns ever so brightly and shines a light on those themes ignited by its predecessor.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a Star Wars film through and through, and it is something else entirely at the same time. To say that this sequel will change the way you look at Star Wars really is just selling the film short. What it does is push its boundaries and test its limits by doing things no other Star Wars film has done in the past, both on a story front and on a visual level. The result is a near-flawless film that moves with fluidity and strikes with visual excitement [...]

It's still very surprising that it has taken us this long to get The Incredibles 2. With Pixar already releasing sequels and prequels to many of their titles, a sequel to The Incredibles is long overdue. But now we are getting one. And the recent teases that have appeared at D23 and the official teaser that dropped during Coco, hints at the Parr family adjusting to their new lives while also trying to figure out how to raise Jack-Jack, whose powers aren't fully formed.

Now we are getting a better sense of what that family life is like for the Parrs in a brand new image that shows them in full costume -- all of them, including Jack-Jack. Check out the new image here [...]
