Ben Affleck Says We’ll See A Different Kind Of Batman In ‘Justice League’

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 02:20:27 +0000

(image)

When we first saw Ben Affleck as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he was anything but happy. The Dark Knight was a pessimistic curmudgeon who believed that Superman presented a danger to the world. However, Supes' sacrifice made him change his ways. And we've seen a little bit of that change in some of the trailers for Justice League. He certainly had a fun time recruiting Barry Allen (Ezra Miller). But I can't say the same for Aquaman (Jason Momoa). But these changes in tone signify that the DCEU is walking away from the dark tones the franchise has started off with. Wonder Woman was a nice way to start off, and bringing in Joss Whedon to direct Justice League will help tone down the darkness.

Now Affleck says audiences will see a different kind of Batman in Justice League. According to him, it will be a "more traditional Batman." More on the story below [...]

‘Gremlins 3’: Chris Columbus Talks “Twisted and Dark” Script, CGI

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:00:20 +0000

(image)

Technically, Gremlins 3 isn't happening for sure just yet. But it is something that's been in development for a while now. At least some form of it, anyway, whether that be a new sequel or a remake.

The script is written by original screenwriter Chris Columbus, who also penned The Goonies and would go on to direct Adventures in Babysitting, Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. He recently talked about the sequel, its "twisted and dark" tone, and whether it will use CGI or practical effects.

While Eon Productions was in no hurry to announce James Bond 25, they didn't exactly lock star Daniel Craig down for the project. Various reports said that the actor was signed on, but there was no actual confirmation that he would be returning.

However, while stopping by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert for an interview, the actor took the time to say that he would be returning as James Bond for a fifth and final time. More on the story and a video of Craig on The Late Show below [...]

Samuel L. Jackson Talks Nick Fury Not Being In ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ ‘Black Panther’

Nick Fury has been a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the very beginning. While Samuel L. Jackson's roles have been supporting ones, there is no doubt he plays a key part in the MCU. But he has been noticeably absent during the events of Phase 3.

Who knows what he would have done during Captain America: Civil War. And now it appears he won't have a role in other films like Avengers: Infinity War, the untitled Avengers 4, and Black Panther. See what Jackson had to say below [...]

Book Review: The Dark Net By Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net
Hardcover | Kindle
By Benjamin Percy
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Release date: August 1, 2017

Dark magic has infiltrated the Dark Net. Which makes sense... since technology has brought forth progress, so has the power to bring forth destruction and chaos. The Dark Net is where criminals can flourish, conduct business, and satisfy their depravity. But now it is also a place where demons can possess you. A 12-year-old blind girl is the only person who can save Portland and the world from a virus that can cause one to kill and maim in a rage, just by looking at their screen, an action done by most 20-30 times a day. The girl, with her Luddite aunt, a man on the supernatural "spectrum" who can come back to life, a couple of hackers, and a dog are the only ones standing between the demons and the apocalypse.

It's not hard to believe that we've reached the point of a superhero ensemble in Netflix's Marvel superhero series. Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) have all had a chance to tell their respective stories, some more than others, and now they are finally coming together to fight a common enemy.

Bruce Campbell’s ‘Hail To The Chin: Further Confessions Of A B-Movie Actor’ Book Signing

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 19:00:59 +0000

Last week, I got a chance to interview Bruce Campbell over the phone. Amongst our topics of conversation were his new memoir, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B-Movie Actor, a sequel to his 2002 book, If Chins Could Kill, and his upcoming 35-city book tour. Well, yesterday in New Jersey the tour commenced, and I was there with my son to meet the man, the chin, the legend, Bruce Campbell and get my copy of his book. The book signing took place at Bookends, located at 211 E. Ridgewood Ave, Ridgewood, New Jersey.

In my world, as I'm sure it is in yours, when someone drops an LOL into a text or tweet, it is often because they have nothing else to say and want to let you know they saw it. In Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets Of Donald J. Trump, however, I absolutely laughed out loud. Maybe it was the tweets or maybe it was the hilarious illustrations from author Shannon Wheeler. But whatever it was, it had me in stitches [...]

TV Review: Preacher 2.9 “Puzzle Piece”

Preacher
Episode 2.9 "Puzzle Piece"
Directed by Michael Dowse
Written by Craig Rosenberg
Created by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
Starring Dominic Cooper, Joe Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Graham McTavish, Tom Brooke, Ian Colletti, Julie Ann Emery
AMC
Air date: Monday, August 14th, 2017, 9pm

Last week on AMC’s Preacher, our three heroes continued to grow apart from one another and fall deeper into individual downward spirals. Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) is short 1% of his soul after using it to dispatch The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), and that has him ignorant to the obvious needs of those closest to him, his focus on finding God turning into obsession. Tulip (Ruth Negga) is dealing with PTSD after her near death experience at the hands of the Saint, and her guard is lowered so much that when face to face with Lara Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery) of The Grail, she makes friends. Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) is tortured the harshest, perhaps. A vampire, who knows all too well the horrors of eternal life, is suffering through the choice of whether to save his dying son Denis (Ronald Guttman) with a bite, or let him die naturally. Tonight, with the three of them divided, The Grail moves into position to take out Jesse and Genesis.

Interview With Bruce Campbell of ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 20:00:27 +0000

(image)

Who is Bruce Campbell? Seriously, this was a question I had to answer for my mother! Bruce Campbell is the King of the B-Actors, a true modern renaissance man. His IMDb page lists over a hundred credits. He’s a producer and director, as well as the author of a New York Times bestseller. But to fans around the world, the answer to the above question is simple: he’s Ash Williams, the chainsaw-handed lothario from the Evil Dead franchise. He’s also my favorite actor, someone I proudly waited 4 hours to meet at a horror convention, and whom I got to interview last year while on vacation with my family inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando. That interview occurred over the phone in the quietest place I could find in a theme park known for loud attractions. A year later, lightning struck a second time. I was privileged to get to interview Mr. Bruce Campbell this month, and had time to discuss his upcoming book, as well as upcoming Season 3 of the Starz hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Rumor: ‘Justice League’ First Cut “Unwatchable”; Reshoots Fixing Tone

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 16:00:10 +0000

Movie reshoots are becoming less of a normal thing and more of something to be deeply concerned about. Oftentimes, studios would have reshoots set in place to work out some of the issues of the film. But now it looks like it's casting more doubt than an assurance that the film will be good. Case in point, Justice League. The highly anticipated film made a huge splash recently when WB debuted the newest trailer at SDCC. However, it was then met with criticism for looking more like a video game than an actual film. Even worse, details about WB working on Zack and Deborah Snyder's exit from the DCEU were revealed. Then there were the reshoots that called for star Henry Cavill's mustache to be digitally erased [...]

Starring Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Alfie Allen
HBO
Air date: August 13, 2017

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO's Game Of Thrones....

On last week's Game Of Thrones, oh man, oh man, there be DRAGONS and Dragon Fire!! But first, at Winterfell, Littlefinger gave Bran the Valyrian steel dagger that kicked off the War of the Five Kings, but why did he do this? Bran then gave the weapon to his sister, Arya, who has finally returned home, but she's not the little girl everyone remembers -- she's a deadly warrior now. How does her sister Lady Sansa feel about that? Not too thrilled, it seems. Arya wants to train with Brienne of Tarth, who was impressed by the girl's fighting style. On Dragonstone, Jon Snow showed Daenerys cave drawings beneath keep that prove that the First Men and Children of the Forest aligned to fight the White Walkers. After seeing this, Daenerys told Jon she will help him fight the undead threat... if he bends the knee to her. Later, cowardly Theon and some Greyjoy crewmen arrived to see the Queen, but she was gone! Where did she go? Cue Daenerys riding the dragon Drogon into battle with her Dothraki horde against the Lannister army, led by Jaime. Drogon suffered a minor injury in the fray that downed him, but he still had his fire power. As Jaime foolishly charged at Daenerys, Drogon let out a blast of fire, but Jaime was saved from the flames when someone knocked him from his horse at the last second. But the knight was knocked into the bay and was last seen sinking down in the water wearing his heavy armor and sporting his golden prosthetic hand. Will Jaime survive this? And if he does, will he be captured by Daenerys or will he make it back to King's Landing to his love Cersei? [...]

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 01:07:04 +0000

Every fan of the Friday the 13th slasher series has their favorite Jason Voorhees. For many, myself included, it's always been Kane Hodder.

A documentary about the man himself is on the way titled To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story. The doc tells Kane's story, beginning with his difficult earlier years and leading to his landing the iconic role of Jason and other Hollywood roles. It also features interviews with Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), who faced off with Voorhees as Freddy Krueger in 2003's Freddy vs. Jason (though not with Hodder, sadly); Bruce Campbell, who many fans wanted to see join the Freddy and Jason fight in a sequel as Ash from the Evil Dead movies (a battle that did happen in comic book form); Adam Green, who directed Hodder as Victor Crowley in the Hatchet movies after he moved on from the Friday the 13th movies; and more.

Movie Review: Annabelle: Creation

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 17:30:29 +0000

(image)

Annabelle Creation
Director: David F. Sandberg
Screenwriter: Gary Dauberman
Cast: Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Anthony LaPaglia, Miranda Otto, Samara Lee
Distributor: Warner Bros.

Rated R | 109 Minutes
Release Date: August 11, 2017

All the possessed portraits, toys, and haunted spirits we've seen in James Wan's Conjuring films leaves plenty of room for world building. As such spinoffs are released to expand upon that world, though it has been met with mixed results. For one thing, Annabelle: while a commercial success, the spinoff was a critical disappointment. But studios are more concerned with the former, so of course, we're going to get a continuation of that poorly received spinoff.

But here is the surprising thing about Annabelle: Creation, it's actually pretty good. Lights Out director David F. Sandberg's latest effort uses all the traditional horror tropes that deliver plenty of chills and thrills. But because it uses all those familiar elements, it all suffers from the same pitfalls. Still, it is a prequel spinoff that gets the job done, and really, that's all you could ask for. Check out my full review below [...]
