Cheech & Chong vs Jason in a Friday the 13th sequel? It could have happened

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 20:03:09 EST

(image) When JASON LIVES: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI was released in 1986, it had been just six years since the birth of the franchise, and with just as many films under their belts, you could sense that the producers were scrambling for gimmicks to keep Jason Voorhees hacking up campers for years to come. While speaking with Mick Garris on Post Mortem, JASON LIVES director Tom McLoughlin revealed that Friday the... Read More...



James Franco recreated nearly 25 minutes of The Room for The Disaster Artist

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 19:08:08 EST

(image) Nearly fifteen years ago, Tommy Wiseau brought us THE ROOM, a bizarre film which quickly became a cult classic and has even been referred to as the CITIZEN KANE of bad movies. Even if you've never seen it for yourself, chances are good that you're familiar with a few choice lines or confusing scenes, but audiences who have somehow remained ignorant of THE ROOM are about to be...

Denis Villeneuve is still digesting Blade Runner 2049's box-office struggles

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 18:20:07 EST

(image) Although it's probably safe to say that most of us were anxiously awaiting the release of BLADE RUNNER 2049, that anticipation didn't exactly turn into a sizeable box-office success for the long-awaited sequel. At the moment, the film is sitting at a $252 million worldwide box-office gross, but the majority of that has come international markets, with the domestic box-office... Read More...



The animated Yeti movie Smallfoot starring Channing Tatum releases trailer

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:04:06 EST

(image) SMALLFOOT is a Warner Bros. animated film (remember when they made Looney Tunes and IRON GIANT?) about a Yeti (played by Channing Tatum) who wants to prove the existence of the elusive "human". Presumably shenanigans and the obligatory "CG animated character dances for some reason" ensues. Now, look, I'm not going to lie, that opening fake out worked for me, and the idea is kind of cute...

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:57:02 EST

(image) If you listen closely, you'll likely still be able to hear the echoes of a celebratory roar let out by Star Wars fans, when it was announced that STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI writer/director Rian Johnson would be helming a brand-new trilogy for the timeless sci-fi space opera.

David Lynch says a fourth season of Twin Peaks a possibility!

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:16:00 EST

(image) So, David Lynch and Mark Frost's TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN has been out for months now, with the series having garnered mixed-to-favorable reviews. I personally had mixed feelings myself. I loved a lot of things (like the nuclear imagery), and hated other aspects (like everything with Dougie), but overall felt pretty positively about it. Oh, except the ending, though, which while philosophically and... Read More...



Fork yeah! NBC renews The Good Place for a third season!

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:15:57 EST

(image) Holy shirt-balls! It seemed inevitable with how good the first two seasons are, but NBC renewing their whimsical comedy THE GOOD PLACE for a third season. For those who aren't aware, THE GOOD PLACE is about a woman named Eleanor (Kristen Bell) who dies and goes to "The Good Place"...only we discover that she's not supposed to be in the Good Place. Shenanigans ensue. The premise does sound a bit hokey, and... Read More...

On Wednesday, Netflix announced that they will be severing their partnership with The Weinstein Company, and will instead host the event themselves. The decision to part ways comes as yet another domino to come tumbling down for TWC, in the wake... Read More...

(image) PARKS AND RECREATION alum Rashida Jones has recently come forward to clarify the reason for her exit from Pixar's TOY STORY 4 in the wake of John Lasseter, the animation studio’s chief creative officer, taking a formal leave of absence due to unspecified “missteps.” The update from Jones comes after her writing partner, Will McCormack,...

First Jurassic World 2 teaser finds Chris Pratt playing with a baby dino

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:10:54 EST

The JURASSIC PARK franchise was brought to life in a big way back in 2015, and though it may not have been the best movie audiences were hoping for, they still flocked in mass to help make it the third biggest movie ever (pushed down to fourth later that year by STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS). Naturally, the dino train needs to keep on chugging, and now we have the first footage of the upcoming sequel, JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, in preparation for the first trailer, which will...

Andy Serkis sheds light on the dark Supreme Leader Snoke

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:01:52 EST

(image) The most mysterious figure in this new STAR WARS trilogy is easily Supreme Leader Snoke, the deformed, mangled, shadowy-puppeteer who appeared only in hologram form in FORCE AWAKENS. Now we’ll get to see him in the flesh in STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, and actor Andy Serkis opened up about Snoke’s emotional state and history and how that affects his dealings with General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson)...

Early tracking says Last Jedi headed for galactic $200M-plus weekend

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 11:08:51 EST

(image) There is no doubt in anyone’s minds that STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI will end up being the biggest movie of the year. There are already fans out there clutching the 15 tickets they’ve pre-bought for dear life while dressed like Luke Skywalker. It’ll be huge overall, but its opening weekend will be so massive that experts are already confident it will cross a rarely... Read More...



New 12 Strong trailer finds Hemsworth charging into battle

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 09:56:50 EST

(image) Seeing soldiers gallantly riding into battle is normally reserved for stuff like LORD OF THE RINGS, GAME OF THRONES and BRAVEHEART, but you don’t often see scenes like that paired with machine guns and ballistic missiles. You’d think the horses would get spooked by all the noises. But that’s exactly how the brave men depicted in 12 STRONG had to battle against the Taliban when... Read More...



Review: Roman J. Israel Esq

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 07:50:50 EST

(image) This was previously reviewed as part of our TIFF 2017 coverage. PLOT: A legal savant (Denzel Washington), who’s dead broke after years of fighting for civil rights, is lured to work in a big law firm. REVIEW: ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ., was a last minute addition to this year’s TIFF lineup, with only one still image and a very vague plot description to give us any clues as to what kind of... Read More...



Dan Harmon and Justin Lin are trying to make a Community movie happen

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 20:50:48 EST

(image) Community was never exactly a ratings hit, so it's somewhat miraculous that the Dan Harmon TV series revolving around a group of misfits at Greendale Community College actually made it to its sixth season, bringing Community fans' dream of "six seasons and a movie" even closer. The sixth and final season of the series came to an end over two years ago, and the... Read More...



Aquaman won't use the same trick for underwater dialogue as Justice League

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 20:03:47 EST

(image) Be mindful of MINOR SPOILERS for JUSTICE LEAGUE below. Although the main three heroes, Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), had already received their proper introductions in prior films, the recently released JUSTICE LEAGUE served as our first opportunity to spend any quality time with Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), but in...

Latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV spot finds Rey tempted

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 18:53:46 EST

Throughout the history of the STAR WARS franchise, we've seen characters struggle with which path to follow - the Light Side or the Dark Side, and it seems that Rey (Daisy Ridley) will be no different, although the latest TV spot for the upcoming STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI seems to indicate that Rey may have another option. While training with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on Ahch-To, the young Jedi reaches out and finds herself seeing light, darkness, "and something... Read More...



James Cameron on shooting underwater mo-cap for Avatar sequels

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 17:58:45 EST

(image) James Cameron just doesn't seem happy unless he's constantly pushing film-making technology to its limits, and the upcoming AVATAR sequels will be taking motion-capture to the next level - by shooting the majority of it underwater. That's right. Collider recently had the opportunity to speak with James Cameron and asked about the challenges of developing an entirely new technology... Read More...



Justice League cinematographer is hoping for a Director's Cut as well

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 16:37:44 EST

(image) Fabian Wagner is a master of his craft. In the past, Wagner has lent his slick and stylish cinematography savvy to projects like VICTOR FRANKSTEIN, GAME OF THRONES, and most recently, DC Entertainment's JUSTICE LEAGUE. For JUSTICE LEAGUE, Wagner worked closely by director Zack Snyder's side in an effort to bring DC's most iconic superhero team to the big screen. Since... Read More...
