Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
Universal Pictures’ Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is headlined by musical digital-shorts superstars Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, collectively known as The Lonely Island. The comedy goes behind the scenes as singer/rapper Conner4Real (Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all.
Laika has released a new full trailer for their upcoming fantasy-inspired martial arts film Kubo and the Two Strings. This movie looks like a delightful adventure and as a fan of Laika’s previous films, I’m really stoked about this one. Laika is the stop-motion animated studio that previously brought us films such as Coraline, The Boxtrolls, and Paranorman. I think there’s a good chance that Kubo and the Two Strings could end up being their best to date. I just absolutely love what I’ve seen in the trailer. It’s so damn beautiful!
The movie has an incredibly impressive voice cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, and George Takei. Here’s the official synopsis:
Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of Game of Thrones) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Akihiro (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) and Kameyo (Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Rooney Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.
The movie was directed by Travis Knight, and it opens in theaters on August 19th, 2016.
I’m laughing so hard right now. Stinkhead deserves all the credit in the world for actually taking the time to create a Playmobil playset for The Witch, and then film children playing with it for a commercial! Truthfully, if he were selling the playset I would buy it in a heart beat. Check it out below!
I got a huge That ’70s Show vibe watching the trailer for Netflix new show The Ranch. It could have something to do with the fact that both Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson are teaming up again for a television comedy, but it also seems like Sam Elliott is playing an R-rated Red Foreman? Here’s a description of the show…
Set in the present day on a Colorado ranch, THE RANCH stars Ashton Kutcher as Colt, a failed semi-pro football player who returns home to run the family ranching business with his older brother Jameson “Rooster” (Danny Masterson) and father Beau (Sam Elliott), whom he hasn’t seen in 15 years. Debra Winger stars as Colt’s and Rooster’s mother, Maggie, who runs the local town bar.
Masterson and Kutcher are both executive producers for the series, along with two of the guys behind Two And A Half Men. I’m pretty excited for this, are you? No release date yet, so stay tuned!
Remember the days when early Spring was an extremely slow time for games? Yeah, I too remember that but those times are quickly ending and instead, we’ve been bombarded with not only AAA titles but an avalanche of indie and smaller titles, a majority of them, like THE FLAME… View Full Post on GameTyrant
I knew you were suffering from Mythbusters withdrawals, so I managed to dig this up for a quick fix. Adam Savage is a big Hellboy fan apparently! He doesn’t just like the films either, as the video might suggest. In this longish (about 30 minutes) video Savage recreates his favorite weapon of Hellboy’s, a sword. Not as fancy as the gun, but he already has one of those! The final result is pretty damn impressive! Check it out below.
Now this is a crazy version of a Nightmare on Elm Street reboot that I could get behind! Before the disappointing 2010 reboot happened with Jackie Earle Haley and Rooney Mara, French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo were developing a version of the film that sounds like it would have been awesome. Unfortunately, New Line Cinema and Platinum Dunes went with director Samuel Bayer for some reason, and we all know how that turned out.
Bloody-Disgusting recently interviewed Maury and Bustillo and talked to them about their vision for Freddy Krueger that never happened. Their pitch is explained as a Goonies-inspired take on the franchise involving kids being terrorized by Freddy instead of teenagers.
“Our idea of a good remake is to have a new vision on the same thematics. Here it was to really use the fact that Krueger is a child molester. So the idea was to have a twisted version of the Goonies with a bunch of kids being stalked. We thought it would have been great for a remake to switch the teenagers of the original with real kids. Beside childhood is the moment in life when you are truly and deeply frightened by nightmares, when you’re not able to see the difference between reality and dreams…”
That would have been an incredibly demented movie. Can you imagine the terrifying monster of Freddy Krueger haunting and killing a group of little kids? It’s such an insane idea! But it’s a really great idea as well. That’s a film that would push the boundaries and make people uncomfortable. Killing adults playing teenagers is fine, but innocent children? That’s jacked up, and that’s why I think it would have worked so well as a horror film. It would have had a shocking impact! But having that Goonies-style adventure vibe would have made it incredibly fun!
Too bad the studio and the production companies wouldn’t go for it. I imagine it was just too dark for them. Maury and Bustillo have directed a Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel called Leatherface that will be released later this year. According to the report, it’s “absolutely insane!”
Super cute alert, these kids are adorable! This big brother is teaching his little sister about the world of Star Wars by reading a children’s book to her. It’s actually kind of surprising how he gives his description of each character! He goes beyond the book in some cases and starts giving some analysis in a way only a little geek can! I especially like how he breaks down Yoda’s speech pattern. Congrats, Will Macky! You must be a proud dad.
These new photos from an upcoming episode of The Flash give us a look at the first female speedster on the series. The name of the character is Trajectory, and she is being played by Allison Paige. Trajectory has a solid character design and a pretty cool, badass style. It’ll be fun to actually see her in action!
The episode is called “Trajectory,” and it’s officially described as follows:
“Deciding to blow off some steam, Barry and the team head out for a night on the town only to encounter an unexpected speedster who is up to no good. Iris is challenged by an assignment from her new boss (guest star Tone Bell), and is surprised when friction turns to flirtation.”
“Trajectory” is scheduled to air Tuesday, March 22nd on The CW. You can check out several other photos from the episode below.
