Things We Want To See In El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

 Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → instagram.com/bosslogic/ After years of rumors, we'll soon be getting a follow-up to one of the greatest shows in TV history. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will debut on Netflix on October 11th - and we have a few ideas of what we'd like to see when it does. First things first: if El Camino is going to truly satisfy fans of Breaking Bad, it has to feel like an extension of the series. The easiest way to do this would be through the use of callbacks. Breaking Bad laid on the callbacks to previous episodes early and often, a practice which continued in the spin-off series Better Call Saul. The callbacks in Breaking Bad were wildly varied, from dialogue to clothing choices to music, and were used for a lot more than just fan service. El Camino will only have a couple of hours to tell its story, and we don't expect it to spend its entire run time reminding us that, holy cow, we're watching more Breaking Bad. But deploying clever, subtle callbacks to the series is one way in which El Camino can honor the show's legacy. We get the feeling that El Camino won't feature too many returning characters from Breaking Bad, for the simple fact that the majority of the more significant supporting players are, well, dead. But thanks to Better Call Saul, we know that "criminal lawyer" Saul Goodman got safely out of town in the aftermath of White's downfall, and ended up exactly where he predicted he would: managing a Cinnabon in some nondescript mall in Omaha.

Ryan Reynolds Lied To His Daughters About Deadpool

 Ryan Reynolds is one sneaky rascal. In response to a fan on Twitter asking whether it was okay to screen Reynolds' hit Deadpool for his four-year old, the star offered a bit of tongue-in-cheek advice: lie your face off, a tack he claimed to have taken with his own daughters. Reynolds is known far and wide for two things: inhabiting the character of Deadpool to an extent which may not exactly be healthy, and his Twitter feed, which is one of the greatest compendiums of hilarity on the entire internet, at least according to his superfans. The latest example of this was prompted by Twitter user @jediminndtrick, who asked: "RYAN I HAVE AN IMPORTANT QUESTION I NEED AN ANSWER TO RIGHT TF NOW!!! My son is 4, he loves Marvel, I'm dying to show him Deadpool but I can't decide if I should or not. Helpasistahout!!!!!!!!" Reynolds immediately leaped into action, doubtless convinced by all of those caps that this was, indeed, a question that needed to be answered with all due haste. His advice was as awesome as it was hilariously irresponsible: "No. Put on Spider-Man (from 2002) and tell him it's Deadpool. It's what I do with my kids. Remember to look him straight in the eye when you lie. Good luck." So, apparently, Reynolds' children, 4-year-old James and 2-year-old Ines, seen here in 2016, think he is Spider-Man, which is a pretty neat trick, if you ask us. Sure, there are a few similarities between the costumes of the wall-crawler and the Merc with a Mouth, but how on Earth does Reynolds explain why he looks exactly like Tobey Maguire when the mask comes off? We knew kids could be gullible, but that's just ridiculous. Of course, a quick perusal of Reynolds' previous tweets quickly reveal that his musings on parenting, and well, most topics, are never, ever, to be taken seriously. Here's a quick selection of our favorites: "My daughter's only 6 months old and already drawing. I'd hang it on the fridge but honestly, it's absolute garbage." "I'm teaching my daughter that the sun goes down each night because it's mad at her. Probably gonna write a book on parenting at some point." And, our all-time favorite: "Totally caved and tossed my daughter the keys to the car. She looked really happy as they bounced off her tiny infant face." Obviously, Reynolds is a guy who loves his family and screwing with people in equal measure. Soon, he'll have another unsuspecting youngster to torment: he and his wife Blake Lively are expecting their third child any old time now. Little does the new arrival know that it's going to have Deadpool…er, Spider-Man…for a dad. Reynolds had better hope that his children never have occasion to meet Tobey Maguire, or they're going to have a lot of uncomfortable questions. At any rate, the cinematic fate of Deadpool is still very much up in the air following Disney's acquisition of the film and television assets of Fox Studios. Although it's understandable that the character's R-rated antics might be a tough fit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 2016's Deadpool and 2018's Deadpool 2 combined to rake in over $1.5 billion dollars worldwide, and the House of Mouse is unlikely to put such a proven cash cow out to pasture. The rumor mill insists that not only is Deadpool 3 in the works, but that there are plans to weave the character into the fabric of the MCU by way of multiple cameos in Marvel Studios' upcoming films and television series. Unfortunately, with talks between Marvel and Sony Pictures having recently broken down, it's looking increasingly likely that fans will never get to see the onscreen pairing that once seemed inevitable: Reynolds' Deadpool and Tom Holland's Spider-Man. Then again, from Reynolds' point of view, this might be a good thing. When his kids get a little bit older, perhaps he can show them Spider-Man: Homecoming, or, as we call it, "Deadpool in high school." Boy, are those kids ever going to grow up confused. #Parenting #Deadpool #RyanReynolds

Christian Bale Shares His Thoughts On Joaquin's Joker

 The Dark Knight has spoken, and he apparently can't wait to get a look at the latest incarnation of his most iconic foe. At this year's Toronto International Film Festival, both Joaquin Phoenix's Joker and Christian Bale's upcoming car racing biopic Ford v Ferrari were screened. Bale's latest film premiered mere hours before Joker was shown at TIFF 2019, and Entertainment Tonight took the chance to get the former Batman actor's take on Phoenix's Joker when he walked the red carpet. Like most of the world, Bale himself hadn't yet seen Phoenix's work in Joker. He did, however, take the opportunity to throw some love in Phoenix's general direction, and note he finds it admirable that Phoenix is following in the footsteps of the late Heath Ledger. "Joaquin is one of the best actors around, you know, and obviously I worked with Heath, and, you know, it's a brave thing to follow up that performance." Bale went on to say he thinks Phoenix "always makes interesting choices" and he wished the filmmakers the best with it. The world is also "dying to see" what maniacal delights Phoenix and director Todd Phillips have conjured with their standalone Joker flick. According to most critics who caught the film at TIFF, Phoenix and Phillips have redefined the character for a new generation of Bat-fans, delivering a gritty, wickedly insightful version of the Joker the world didn't know it needed. Many also agree that Joker could change audiences' perception of what comic book movies can be when it hits theaters this October. As for Bale's kind words for Phoenix, they're certainly high praise from an actor of his stature. Given Bale's past experience with the Clown Prince of Crime, that praise is perhaps the most meaningful kind Phoenix can receive for playing the Joker. Ledger's work with Bale in The Dark Knight as the bullet-, gasoline-, and anarchy-loving Joker truly is the stuff of legend; the brave actor pushed the character beyond the frames of any comic book, film, or television version of the Joker we'd seen before.

Small Details You Missed In It: Chapter Two

 Float on down. We're going deep into the sewers to dig up all the Easter eggs and references you might've missed in It: Chapter Two. Now is your last chance to turn back, because there are plenty of spoilers and scares ahead. Stephen King's stories are often connected through their New England locations as well as their monsters. It takes place in Derry, Maine, and the book often references the nearby town of Castle Rock, where multiple works by King are set, including his novella "The Body" and its movie adaptation, Stand By Me. These two stories are also connected through their focus on friendship, childhood trauma, and the end of innocence as groups of kids are forced to confront dark forces around them, both supernatural and human. At the end of Stand By Me, Gordie LaChance is finishing the last lines of his memoir, inspired by the news of his childhood best friend's death. His office has dark wood paneling and a wall of books around him, as well as a picture window looking out onto the front yard. In It: Chapter Two, Bill's office is a replica of Gordie's, albeit with a sleek laptop rather than a clunky 1980s home computer. And like in Stand By Me, Bill is working on his own book about childhood. 1986's Stand By Me was the film that gave Stephen King a reputation for more than his horror stories. It also helped catapult young actors River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O'Connell to stardom in film and television.

The Truth Behind That Surprise Cameo In It: Chapter Two

 Pennywise may not be the scariest thing in Derry, Maine, after all. Audiences who have taken in ​It: Chapter Two​ were a little surprised to see a familiar face pop up in the film: none other than Stephen King himself, who appeared as the proprietor of the store Secondhand Rose. Screenwriter Gary Dauberman revealed that he wrote the part of Secondhand Rose's owner with King in mind, but stopped just short of actually spelling out his preference in the screenplay. He told Inverse: "I wrote him into the script just along the lines of 'looks like Stephen King' early on in the drafts. You know, just kind of planting the seed." Dauberman was unsure if King would be willing to take the time to cameo in the film. Luckily, while King's high-profile cameo appearances may have come in the '80s and '90s, he's always been pretty game to pop up in adaptations of his material. It's just that in recent years, he's mostly stuck to the small screen. King's very first movie appearance was in a film not even adapted from one of his novels: it was in the bizarre 1981 fantasy flick Knightriders, which was directed by his friend George A. Romero. King and Romero would go on to collaborate on the excellent horror anthology film Creepshow the following year, and in that film, King didn't just cameo; he actually starred in one of its segments, "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill." Since then, King has turned in cameos in no fewer than fifteen films and television series. He cameoed in 1986's Maximum Overdrive, which is also the only film that King ever directed. After that, he appeared in 1987's Creepshow 2, 1989's Pet Sematary, and plenty more. Dauberman related that he was content to just keep his fingers crossed and hope that King would agree to the cameo. However, Andy Muschietti revealed that he was down to do a little more bargaining in the interest of making it happen.

The Entire Friday The 13th Story Finally Explained

 Thumbnail Image by Phantom City Creative → instagram.com/phantomcitycreative/ After all these years and so many sequels, it can be hard to remember what really happened in all the Friday the 13th movies. Let's take a deep dive into Crystal Lake and map out the entire gruesome story. What's the worst that can happen? In the original Friday the 13th, audiences first heard the sad, sinister story of young Jason Voorhees. He drowned at Camp Crystal Lake in 1958, after two counselors took their eyes off the boy to go have some sexy-time. Those two counselors were murdered, and the camp was subsequently shuttered. The camp reopens two decades later, but it still has a reputation for murder and mayhem - and rightly so. Meet Annie, freshly hired as a camp counselor. She hitchhikes to Crystal Lake, opting to ignore the warnings of Crazy Ralph, a generic townie who asks if she's going to "Camp Blood." But maybe Crazy Ralph isn't so crazy after all. Annie is chased through the woods by an unseen assailant and brutally murdered… and she's just one of several counselors to meet a grisly end. It turns out Jason Voorhees isn't the killer in the first installment. The murderer is his mom Pamela, who doesn't want the camp reopened because of her son's death. Twenty years of grief have curdled into madness, and Mrs. Voorhees hears her son's voice urging her to kill. Fortunately, an intrepid camp counselor named Alice decapitates Pamela Voorhees, and that's the end of this particular bad mama. At the end of the film, Alice has a nightmare in which she's attacked by the rotting corpse of young Jason Voorhees. It's surely one of the greatest jump-scares of all time... Alice swears it wasn't a dream…but police say they never found a body. Strange, isn't it? Friday the 13th Part 2 kicks off two months after the events of the first film. We learn that Alice is still haunted by the night she killed Pamela Voorhees. Little does she know that Jason is still alive - and he's been living out in the woods. Jason tracks down Alice and totally kills her… but not before stashing Mrs. Voorhees' head in the fridge. As you might already know, Jason's trademark hockey mask doesn't make an appearance until the third installment of the franchise. Instead, we get Sackcloth Jason.

Every Friday The 13th Movie Ranked Worst To First

 The spookiest time of year is quickly approaching, and if you're looking for a gory movie marathon, you could do a lot worse than the Friday the 13th series. Friday may not be the father of the slasher genre, but it's definitely the crazy uncle - and the unstoppable Jason Voorhees' signature hockey mask is now one of the most recognizable icons in American pop culture. For newcomers and hardcore fans alike, we're running down every Friday the 13th movie, ranked from worst to best. After sprinting past the events of the original film, the 2009 reboot moves on to an adult Jason with an intelligent, cunning characterization that seemed like a pointless change, if not an outright betrayal of the original series. Jason's seemingly supernatural abilities are neatly explained away, callbacks to the previous films fall ridiculously flat, and Jason captures a girl and holds her prisoner - as if he'd ever bother with mere kidnapping. The film had a so-so performance at the box office but earned dismal reviews, and a lengthy tug of war over rights issues helped sink another attempt at a reboot. This film simply shouldn't exist - even the worst entry from the original series is preferable. On that note… Just one in a long line of films that were meant to end the series, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday undoes the mythology built by the previous entries, reinventing Jason as a vengeful spirit that can only be taken by members of his own bloodline using a special magic dagger. After being taken by the FBI in the beginning, Jason spends most of the movie as a spirit, possessing random people by forcibly installing his heart into their chest cavities. Its only notable moment comes at the very end, when an appearance by a familiar knife-gloved hand sets up a much better movie - that wouldn't show up for another decade.

Friday may not be the father of the slasher genre, but it's definitely the crazy uncle - and the unstoppable Jason Voorhees' signature hockey mask is now one of the most recognizable icons in American pop culture. For newcomers and hardcore fans alike, we're running down every Friday the 13th movie, ranked from worst to best. After sprinting past the events of the original film, the 2009 reboot moves on to an adult Jason with an intelligent, cunning characterization that seemed like a pointless change, if not an outright betrayal of the original series. Jason's seemingly supernatural abilities are neatly explained away, callbacks to the previous films fall ridiculously flat, and Jason captures a girl and holds her prisoner - as if he'd ever bother with mere kidnapping. The film had a so-so performance at the box office but earned dismal reviews, and a lengthy tug of war over rights issues helped sink another attempt at a reboot. This film simply shouldn't exist - even the worst entry from the original series is preferable. On that note… Just one in a long line of films that were meant to end the series, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday undoes the mythology built by the previous entries, reinventing Jason as a vengeful spirit that can only be taken by members of his own bloodline using a special magic dagger. After being taken by the FBI in the beginning, Jason spends most of the movie as a spirit, possessing random people by forcibly installing his heart into their chest cavities. Its only notable moment comes at the very end, when an appearance by a familiar knife-gloved hand sets up a much better movie - that wouldn't show up for another decade. Keep watching the video to see every Friday the 13th movie ranked worst to first! #FridayThe13th Friday the 13th (2009) | 0:27 Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday | 1:07 Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan | 1:40 Jason X | 2:29 Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood | 3:20 Freddy vs. Jason | 4:09 Friday the 13th: A New Beginning | 5:14 Friday the 13th Part III | 6:20 Friday the 13th Part 2 | 7:03 Friday the 13th | 7:51 Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives | 8:38 Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter | 9:37

Heath Ledger Wanted To Play The Joker Again

 Heath Ledger's brilliant, Oscar-winning performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight could have been just the beginning. In an interview with News Australia, the late actor's sister, Kate, revealed that Ledger was incredibly excited about his work with director Christopher Nolan in The Dark Knight, and he was looking forward to playing the iconic villain again in another movie. Kate admitted that the supposed "demons" one critic described Ledger as having didn't exist. She explained, "He was a really happy person and he had huge plans for his future. […] He was so proud of what he had done in [The Dark Knight]. And I know he had plans for another Batman [movie]. [...] He just had the best time ever doing that film. When he came home at Christmas he couldn't wait to tell us all about it and he was doing the voice and laughing, showing me all the rushes. We had a great time." Kate also mentioned that she spoke with Ledger the night before he died of an accidental prescription drug overdose, and as she describes it, the siblings spent time "laughing and joking together." Ledger's unexpected death came on January 22nd, 2008, six months before The Dark Knight arrived in theaters. The Australian actor was just 28 years old at the time of his passing. The Dark Knight, one of two of Ledger's posthumous releases, opened in theaters in July 2008. Ledger's turn as the deranged criminal Joker redefined the iconic Batman villain, and impressed both fans and critics alike. He had delivered what went on to be an Oscar-winning performance as one of DC Comics' most famous bad guys - and he'd never be able to do it again. Writing for The New Yorker, critic David Denby had only positive things to say about Ledger, saying, "It has one startling and artful element: the sinister and frightening performance of the late Heath Ledger as the psychopathic murderer the Joker. That part of the movie is upsetting to watch, and, in retrospect, both painful and stirring to think about. […] His performance is a heroic, unsettling final act: this young actor looked into the abyss." A lasting, but totally unfounded consensus amongst fans is that Ledger's performance as the Joker may have contributed to his death in one way or another - which would suggest that the experience was far more traumatic than anyone knew, and that he wouldn't have wanted to revisit the character if he got the opportunity.

Things Fans Understood About It: Chapter Two That Critics Didn't

 Thumbnail Image by SvPolarFox → www.deviantart.com/svpolarfox/gallery It: Chapter Two has finally hit the big screen, and while the epic conclusion to the adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 novel It has largely left fans satisfied, a fair number of critics weren't so impressed. Fans of the original book and the films are likely to shoot down a few of the pervasive criticisms of the flick with these arguments. Several changes were made to the character of Derry Library resident Mike Hanlon and criticisms around these changes can be confusing. All of the Losers are bullied, but in King's novel, Henry Bowers' bullying of Mike was particularly awful because of Bowers' unrestrained racism. Some observers took issue with the fact that, in both movies, the racist element the bullying against Mike was substantially toned down, leading to charges of squeamishness on the part of director Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Gary Dauberman. But the racist nature of the Bowers gang's bullying of Mike is certainly implied, if no racial slurs are used on screen. And it's worth remembering that the films are set 31 years later than the novel, with Chapter One set in 1989 rather than 1958. Racism is, of course, still pervasive today, but it's not a huge stretch to say that the use of overt slurs was more likely to be encountered in the '50s than the '80s. And neither film really suffered from the filmmakers' decision to make the racial aspect of Bowers' antagonism toward Mike more subtle. The decision was the obvious byproduct not only of the time period switch, but of adapting a 33-year old novel. Another difference between literary Mike and cinematic Mike is the fate of his parents.

The Transformation Of Joaquin Phoenix Into The Joker

 Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → instagram.com/bosslogic/ Some of the steps Joaquin Phoenix took to become Gotham's Clown Prince of Crime seem pretty risky, which is par for the course when you're an actor of his caliber. But what, exactly, did Phoenix do to prepare for such a disturbing role? Here's how the celebrated performer transformed himself into the Joker. Joaquin Phoenix says he didn't study any previous film incarnations of the Joker in preparation, and that may be technically true. But there's one silent film he did study that's essentially a Joker origin story. At the 2019 Venice Film Festival, Joker director Todd Phillips said one of the movies he and Phoenix found particularly important for Joker prep was the 1928 silent film The Man Who Laughs. Based on the Victor Hugo novel of the same name, the film is about a man who has been disfigured with a permanent smile since birth, and becomes a sideshow attraction. The Man Who Laughs is often cited as the inspiration for the Joker, who premiered in 1940's Batman #1. DC comic book writer Grant Morrison, in fact, called the Joker a direct lift from The Man Who Laughs in his 2011 book Supergods. He goes so far to say it's a wonder how Joker's creators got away with copying the film. So in a sense, even though the Jokers of Heath Ledger or Jack Nicholson weren't considered in the creation of Arthur Fleck, you could argue Philips and Phoenix studied every Joker by skipping them all and going straight to the source. Philips has been clear he doesn't want anyone to go into Joker thinking they're going to be seeing the adaptation of a particular comic, or that they should expect much inspiration from the comics at all. But there's at least one way Arthur Fleck's character mirrors the Joker of the comics perhaps more closely than any of the film adaptations we've seen so far. The Joker is almost always depicted as being very skinny in the comics, sometimes impossibly so. According to Phoenix, the first thing he did to prepare for Joker was to lose weight - which had a welcome side effect.

The Most Flawless Scenes In Movie History

 Sometimes, films scare us…sometimes, they move us to tears. And sometimes, they have us laughing our butts off. There's a reason we love movies so much, and it has everything to do with a well-crafted scene. These are just a few cinematic scenes that are practically perfect in every way. The 1996 slasher film Scream, just one of the many horror classics conceived by Wes Craven, was at once a love letter to horror films as well as an effective addition to the genre in its own right. Set in a small town with a history of tragic murders, the film centers on Sidney Prescott, a seemingly normal teen who starts getting mysterious phone calls as she and her friends are stalked by an unknown entity known as "Ghostface." Before Sidney even appears, there is a lengthy opening scene featuring Drew Barrymore as Casey Becker, a teenager enjoying a night at home when she starts getting some unsettling phone calls. At first, Casey is unfazed by these odd calls, assuming the person on the other end of the phone is simply playing a rude prank, but before long, she starts getting nervous, and once she sees her gutted boyfriend posed in her backyard, her panic intensifies. As her parents arrive home at the end of the evening, the camera zooms in on her body hanging from a tree on the property, finally cutting to the opening credits and capping off a perfect encapsulation of both Craven's vision and the horror genre. Despite initially flopping at the box office, Frank Darabont's magnum opus The Shawshank Redemption went on to become one of the most beloved films of the 20th century, even earning a spot on AFI's Top 100 list.

Details Only True Fans Noticed In Amazon's The Boys

 The Boys openly calls out superhero cliches and gets really meta about comic books. And we love it! From MCU potshots to Justice League shout-outs, here are small details that only true fans noticed about Amazon's The Boys. It doesn't take long to get familiar with the superheroes or "supes" in the world of The Boys, because we already know them. The production is counting on the fact that its audience is already familiar with the slew of superheroes that have quickly become mainstream over the past few years. Thus, many of the supes need no introduction or explanation. We know that Homelander is a Superman clone, The Deep is this world's Aquaman, and Queen Maeve is Wonder Woman. Vought's"The Seven" are clearly DC's Justice League. So where are the Avengers? They exist, we learn, through a quick quip from Starlight you may have overlooked. In episode one, Starlight worries that the "Crimson Countess" got the open position in the Seven rather than her. The Crimson Countess is a member of the Avengers-esque superhero team called Payback, and she's an obvious riff on Scarlet Witch, the Vision-loving Avenger played by Elizabeth Olsen. Producer Eric Kripke likes to marry comedy to horror, and slapstick to drama. This expert weaving of action with witty one liners can is clear from the shows he's produced, from Supernatural to The Boys. Both of these shows feature memorable tough guys taking on supernaturally-powered people. They also both feature a character named Robert Singer, played by Jim Beaver. #TheBoys Crimson and Scarlet | 0:14 Leave it to Beaver | 1:04 Seth and Evan | 1:49 I am Tek-Knight | 2:35 Nod to Doogie | 3:34 Amazing race reference | 4:23 Going to Belize? | 5:13

How Thor's Ragnarok Transformation Changed The Entire MCU

 The Marvel Cinematic Universe might look very different had the God of Thunder not been put through the wringer. Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely explained that they had to change their plans due to the radical reinvention of Thor in director Taika Waititi's ​Thor: Ragnarok.​ Fans of the MCU know very well that Waititi essentially rehabilitated the character of Thor after his somewhat lackluster portrayal in the series prior to Ragnarok. While there were always humorous undertones to the God of Thunder, Waititi tapped into star Chris Hemsworth's comedic chops to give us a Thor who was just as quippy as his fellow Avengers. The hero's newly comedic personality felt very different to his rather dour demeanor in other MCU films, which meant that early drafts of Infinity War needed to be adjusted to accommodate it. According to Markus and McFeely, they actually had to fly in Hemsworth and Waititi to make sure that the Odinson's characterization made sense going from Thor: Ragnarok to Avengers: Infinity War. But Waititi didn't just tweak the Thunder God's characterization - he put the poor guy through the kind of narrative gauntlet that few Marvel characters have had to endure, forcing him to experience more loss in a single film than he ever had before. Markus and McFeely saw in this an opportunity to portray Thor in a novel, almost shocking way. In Avengers: Infinity War, the Thunder God is obviously still hurting from the events of Ragnarok, and in that film's opening, he's forced to witness the murder of his adopted brother Loki, as well as his friend Heimdall at the hands of Thanos. During a later conversation with Rocket, Thor seems withdrawn, unsure of himself, insecure, even depressed. That continues to the end of the film, in which Thor makes a crucial error, failing to immediately kill Thanos, allowing the Mad Titan to snap away half of all life in the universe.

The Strange Ways Joaquin Phoenix Prepared To Play The Joker

 Joaquin Phoenix is poised to be the next in a long line of actors who've become the Clown Prince of Crime. And whether he knows it or not, the Oscar-nominated actor has been preparing for this part for almost his entire career. Phoenix is well aware that all eyes will be on him as he tackles the iconic Batman villain. Speaking to Collider, he explained that director Todd Phillips' vision for Joker is something he's afraid of ruining. However, not wanting to betray Phillips' vision and not wanting to betray Joker fans are two different things. When asked directly about any anxieties of letting people down. When it comes to losing weight, some actors take it way too far, like Christian Bale for The Machinist and Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club. Now, it looks like Phoenix is joining the A-list weight loss club. Fans were stunned in August 2018 when Just Jared posted what appear to be paparazzi photos of Phoenix looking noticeably slimmer. Many assumed the actor had begun the process of looking thin in order to properly capture the typical body type of a certain always-smiling villain.

Rumor Report: Is This How Emperor Palpatine Returns In Rise Of Skywalker?

 The most potent enemy of the Jedi Order is returning… but how? A new rumor has surfaced around the return of Emperor Palpatine, AKA Darth Sidious , in the upcoming Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. It indicates that there won't be any arcane rituals or Sith trickery involved - rather, that the explanation for the Emperor's return will be an exceedingly simple one. The Emperor seemed to have met a decisive end in his final screen appearance, but the first trailer for The Rise of Skywalker teased us with the sound of the villain's distinctive laugh. Since the spot's release, it's become public that Ian McDiarmid, who portrayed the character in all of his previous appearances, is involved with the new film - leading to fan speculation that Palpatine may appear in some kind of vision, or as a Force Ghost, or even return as a clone. "As you know in Star Wars, they're very good at dealing in unexpected moments the whole time, and secrets are a big thing." According to some new purported spoilers for Episode IX making the rounds on the internet, the real explanation is quite a bit more mundane. Instead of coming back as a ghost or spirit, it's being claimed that the Emperor has actually just been physically alive this whole time, waiting for the right moment to make his presence known once again. Hey, weirder things have happened. Fans will remember that at the conclusion of 1983's Return of the Jedi, the last time in the series timeline that we saw Palpatine in the flesh, the Emperor was thwarted in his plan to turn Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side of the Force. The Emperor pitted Skywalker against his father, Darth Vader, in a duel to the death, hoping to take the young Jedi on as his new apprentice if he managed to kill the Sith Lord. But at the last moment, Skywalker realized that he was being manipulated, and refused to continue the fight. Enraged, the Emperor began torturing Luke with bolts of Force lightning, and he surely would have killed the Jedi if not for an abrupt face turn by Vader. The former Anakin Skywalker was unexpectedly moved by Luke calling out to him, and in a stunning act of self-sacrifice, he seized the Emperor and threw him to his apparent death down a seemingly bottomless shaft, mortally wounding himself in the process.

Since the spot's release, it's become public that Ian McDiarmid, who portrayed the character in all of his previous appearances, is involved with the new film - leading to fan speculation that Palpatine may appear in some kind of vision, or as a Force Ghost, or even return as a clone. "As you know in Star Wars, they're very good at dealing in unexpected moments the whole time, and secrets are a big thing." According to some new purported spoilers for Episode IX making the rounds on the internet, the real explanation is quite a bit more mundane. Instead of coming back as a ghost or spirit, it's being claimed that the Emperor has actually just been physically alive this whole time, waiting for the right moment to make his presence known once again. Hey, weirder things have happened. Fans will remember that at the conclusion of 1983's Return of the Jedi, the last time in the series timeline that we saw Palpatine in the flesh, the Emperor was thwarted in his plan to turn Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side of the Force. The Emperor pitted Skywalker against his father, Darth Vader, in a duel to the death, hoping to take the young Jedi on as his new apprentice if he managed to kill the Sith Lord. But at the last moment, Skywalker realized that he was being manipulated, and refused to continue the fight. Enraged, the Emperor began torturing Luke with bolts of Force lightning, and he surely would have killed the Jedi if not for an abrupt face turn by Vader. The former Anakin Skywalker was unexpectedly moved by Luke calling out to him, and in a stunning act of self-sacrifice, he seized the Emperor and threw him to his apparent death down a seemingly bottomless shaft, mortally wounding himself in the process.

Ways Stephen King’s It Is Totally Different Than The Movies

 Thumbnail Image by Cameron → instagram.com/camw1n/ Although IT: Chapter One did a wonderful job of capturing the characters and the feel of the book, a lot of the novel's specifics were significantly altered. Now that the story is complete with the release of IT: Chapter Two, we have a more complete picture of how the films match up to the book. Both the book and the movie jump back and forth between two different time periods nearly three decades apart, but while the book alternates between 1957 and 1985, the films are set in 1989 and 2016. Considering the novel was originally released in 1986, making the '80s timeline feel tangibly recent to its readers, it makes sense that director Andy Muschietti and his team would update the film to feel contemporary to today's audiences. Although much of Derry and the story of IT exists in what feels like a sort of timeless bubble, making the decade almost irrelevant, the modern-day setting does alter the story in a few minor but effective ways. Although both the book and the films focus on the same group of characters in two different time periods, the films draw a much firmer line between past and present, with none of the adult versions of the characters even making an appearance in IT: Chapter One. While Chapter Two isn't quite as distinct in its focus and includes a fair number of flashbacks, it's still accurate to say that Chapter One is about the kids and Chapter Two is about the adults. This is very different from King's book, which braids the two time periods together. Streamlining King's narrative likely worked to the films' benefit, since it may have felt jarring to visually jump between time periods as often as the book does. Splitting the films into a children-centric film and an adult-centric film allowed each one to end with a climactic showdown against Pennywise, even if the kids' victory would prove tragically impermanent.

How Much It Really Cost Tony Stark To Bankroll Iron Man Revealed

 Since the release of 2008's Iron Man, multiple writers, tech experts, and financial wizards have worked hard to find out just how much money Tony Stark spent being Iron Man. Some of these numbers are surprisingly low - and some of them are straight-up astronomical - but one thing's for certain: Being the Iron Avenger ain't cheap. In 2010 - the same year Iron Man 2 was released - io9's Annalee Newitz crunched the numbers and learned that the total for all the parts comprising Iron Man's suit came to around $100 million. Newitz pointed out that this was around $12 million less than the cost of an F-35 fighter plane. You probably wouldn't find them in a big box store, but hypothetically it wouldn't be out of the reach of the U.S. military. The story is a decade old, so why aren't there already fleets of Iron Man suits? Well, probably because of a couple of the story's missing pieces. First, Newitz comes to the figure with only five components of the hypothetical suit - a helmet-mounted display, an exoskeleton, a portable nuclear power source, a jet pack, and wearable computers. No weapons are mentioned, which are crucial to being Iron Man. There are many other missing suit capabilities, like Tony's, uh… waste filtration system. Second, even if it were a complete list, the story is missing a critical component: the research and development necessary to make all these different pieces of tech work together in one suit. That kind of brain power comes with a hefty - and unknowable - price tag. A couple of months after the 2012 release of Avengers, MoneySupermarket.com gave the cost of being Iron Man a much steeper sum than io9's quote. The site estimated the cost of living as both Tony Stark and Iron Man would be well over 15 times greater, putting it at $1.6 billion. Unlike the 2010 story, MoneySupermarket.com's data took into account things like the anti-personnel guns on the suit's shoulders - $400,000 each - the rocket launchers in the wrists, which would clock in at $1.5 million; and the development of the artificial intelligence program known as JARVIS at around $10 million. MoneySupermarket gauged the total cost for all of Tony Stark's suits combined by the end of The Avengers at $1.5 billion.

The Russo Brothers Break Their Silence On Spider-Man Leaving The MCU

 Spider-Man is headed back to Sony, and the guys who helped bring him into the Marvel Cinematic Universe are disappointed, but not surprised. During a recent conversation with The Daily Beast, Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo shared their thoughts on the web-slinger's unceremonious exit from the biggest film franchise in history. The pair related that while they and Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige had been absolutely driven to bring Spidey into their universe, the shared custody deal with Sony was an extremely difficult one to get done, so difficult that negotiations to extend it falling apart didn't register to them as being terribly surprising. Peter Parker appeared in the MCU for the first time in the Russo Brothers' second Marvel flick: Captain America: Civil War. From the beginning of the project's development, the directors were adamant that the story should include Spider-Man, despite the obvious stumbling block of Sony holding the film rights. Anthony Russo said, "We were extremely passionate about it. This is something we really wanted to happen, and fought a long time internally at Marvel to make it happen." There were, of course, contingencies in the very likely event that a deal wouldn't be struck. Black Panther, who was also introduced in Civil War, would have had his role greatly expanded in the event that Spidey couldn't come out to play, and several other narrative elements would have been different as well. The movie's script went through several iterations as all of the involved parties were attempting to reach an agreement, and poor Feige was right in the middle of it all, attempting to juggle the creative and business sides of his job in a way that he hadn't been asked to do before. Joe Russo said, "Kevin went through a lot. There were a lot of ups and downs, and he kept walking into our office and we'd go, 'Look, we've got to do it with [Sony],' and he'd go, 'OK, I'll figure it out,' and walk back into his. He was looking for the way out. He wanted to open that door and have us go, 'We figured it out! We don't need Spider-Man!' because it's a lot of work to get two major corporations to play nice with each other, and the fact that it happened at all, we should all be dancing and celebrating that we got that little bit of time." Anthony Russo agreed, saying, "I think that's why Joe and I are not so devastated or surprised that there's been a falling out, because it was so hard to make it happen in the first place."

The Truth About Joaquin Phoenix Returning For A Joker Sequel

 Thumbnail Image by Camille Vialet → instagram.com/cvialet_art/ Guess who might be looking to put on his happy face again, bringing a little laughter and a lot of anarchy to the mean streets of Gotham? In the eight decades since making his appearance in the pages of Batman #1, he's been called everything from "The Clown Prince of Crime, to "The Ace of Knaves," to "Puddin'." He's also been called a psychopath who "just wants to watch the world burn." Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix are calling him Arthur Fleck, though most of us have come to know him simply as Joker. By the end of director Phillips and star Phoenix's new film, Joker, that's presumably the name and villainous persona Arthur will take. While the pair's anxiously anticipated film is still weeks away from release, it's already generating a whirlwind of mostly positive press on the festival circuit - with many critics praising Phoenix's turn as the titular baddie as the best incarnation of the Joker yet. Some are even speculating Phoenix's performance may well net him the Best Actor statue that's somehow eluded the actor throughout his diverse and ambitious career. Understandably, that sort of praise already has people buzzing about whether or not there's a chance for a Joker 2, and whether or not Phoenix would be open to reprising his role for it. So, will we ever see a Joker sequel? Let's discuss. Joker was pitched and produced as a standalone project, so we can tell you right off the bat that there is no immediate plan for a Joker follow-up. That being said, director Todd Phillips recently went on the record with Total Film to state he would be more than willing to make another Joker movie if Phoenix were on board for the project - and he certainly makes it sound like Phoenix might be considering the possibility. He told Total Film: "One thing I will tell you: I would do anything with Joaquin, any day of the week. There's nobody like him. If he was willing to do it, and if people show up to this movie, and Warners came to us and said, 'You know what? If you guys could think of something…' Well, I have a feeling that he and I could think of something pretty cool." There's a lot to unpack in that quote, so before we get too ahead of ourselves, we can tell you that Phoenix himself has neither confirmed nor denied his interest in appearing in a Joker sequel - but what's interesting about Phillips' statement is how clear it is that both he and Phoenix had a ton of fun bringing their version of Joker to life. Furthermore, if one were inclined toward a bit of conjecture, you could also take Phillips' comment as a hint that the two have already thought of where they'd take the story, and are just waiting to see how Joker plays with audiences before pursuing the next step. For Phillips' part, he's seemingly already brought a game-changing concept to the fray for this first Joker. As has been well covered in the press, this incarnation of the Joker is a version of the character that has nothing to do with any Joker that's appeared before. Free from the shackles of comic book lore, TV, and cinematic canon, Phillips and Phoenix set out to make the most of their blank slate and craft a version of Joker the likes of which have never been seen before. As for whether or not Phoenix will return for a Joker sequel, we'll just have to wait and see. Robert Pattinson certainly stoked the fires of rumor-ville by inadvertently alluding to a possible cameo of Phoenix's Joker in his upcoming The Batman, but Phoenix has been quite vocal about the emotional toll the role took on him. He told reporters during a Venice Film Festival presser that while playing Joker, you, quote, "start to go a little mad." Even if the studio wants a sequel, the idea that Phoenix would return to the role doesn't seem guaranteed. While it may be a challenge for Phoenix to step back into the makeup for Joker 2, Phillips' remarks also imply that Joker's box office take and critical reception may well influence whether or not it happens. Critics are already being very kind to the film - but the rest, as it seems, is up to the moviegoing public. If you want to see Phoenix and Phillips return for Joker 2, make sure you show Joker a little love when the film finally arrives in theaters on October 4.

5 Best And 5 Worst Things In It: Chapter Two

 It's still strange how a story like Stephen King's It became such a big deal. But just because something is popular doesn't mean it's good, much less perfect. Here's our list of the highlights and lowlights, and yes, the Deadlights of It: Chapter Two. Oklahoma's favorite son Bill Hader has really been showing off his dramatic chops in recent years, from his critically-adored turn in HBO's complex Barry to his work in It: Chapter Two as the grown-up Richie Tozier. In the sequel, the Trashmouth has grown from a neighborhood nuisance to a national sensation, or at least something like that as an apparently well-known stand-up comic. In his role as the older Richie, Hader builds on everything that Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard laid down for the character in chapter one, so much so that it takes no effort to believe that he's that kid, just 27 years older. The movie suggests that despite any appearance of material success, he's not living up to his full potential, an intriguing step up from the radio DJ role he played in King's book, with the writing for the character also being a notable step up from the limp improvised jokes Harry Anderson strung together for the 1990 miniseries. Despite what successes It: Chapter Two may have in improving on the old miniseries, reviews have had one pretty consistent complaint, the grown-up members of the Losers' Club don't really feel like old friends. They all feel more like they're meeting each other for the first time, and it's an impression that never really goes away. And before you go pointing out that the group members being distant towards each other was the whole point of the movie, with it all culminating in the characters reconnecting and learning to love one another again, we would like to counter by saying that at no point in this movie does it actually feel like these people are really connecting with each other. Everyone is frigid and chilly towards each other up until the point that they have to wrench the heart out of an ancient cosmic horror, when they all fight on the same side because, well, that's what you're supposed to do. One of the biggest strengths of the first It is the palpable sense of camaraderie that can be felt when the young cast is all interacting. Sparks are flying in these scenes, as are so, so many f-bombs. The kid scenes in the sequel still crackle with nostalgic energy, while the grown-up sequences all proceed as though they're dialogues among strangers killing time at the DMV.

Original Harry Potter Cast Rumored To Be Reuniting For Brand New Film

 Are we really about to head back to the wizarding world of Harry Potter? According to an anonymous report by We Got This Covered, it could be a possibility. The outlet, citing anonymous sources, claims that the studio is developing a brand-new Harry Potter movie featuring the three original stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson,and Rupert Grint. The purported project is an adaptation of the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, written by Jack Thorne from a story he wrote with J.K. Rowling and two-time Tony Award-winning theatre director John Tiffany. Given the stage play's success, it's not out of the realm of reality that Warner Bros. would want to make big bucks with a feature film adaptation. However, we can puncture quite a few holes in this rumor. For starters, this isn't the first time we've heard reports that Warner Bros. wants to turn Harry Potter and the Cursed Child into a film. In August 2016, just two months after the play began its London previews, New York Daily News ran an article claiming that Warner Bros. was interested in adapting the play for the silver screen in a project that would debut as soon as 2020. The studio was said to have hoped that Radcliffe would board the film to reprise his most famous role. This report started a hot fire of speculation that began burning up social media. In September 2016, Warner Bros. representatives issued a statement debunking the rumor: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film." Additionally, there's the issue of whether Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint would genuinely want to come back to the franchise. That doesn't exactly inspire a lot of confidence in the idea that Grint would be willing to come back to the Harry Potter universe for another movie. For his part, Radcliffe has said that he's not really interested in appearing again as Harry Potter.

Original Harry Potter Cast Rumored To Be Reuniting For Brand New Film

 Před 6 dny

 Are we really about to head back to the wizarding world of Harry Potter? According to an anonymous report by We Got This Covered, it could be a possibility. The outlet, citing anonymous sources, claims that the studio is developing a brand-new Harry Potter movie featuring the three original stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson,and Rupert Grint. The purported project is an adaptation of the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, written by Jack Thorne from a story he wrote with J.K. Rowling and two-time Tony Award-winning theatre director John Tiffany. Given the stage play's success, it's not out of the realm of reality that Warner Bros. would want to make big bucks with a feature film adaptation. However, we can puncture quite a few holes in this rumor. For starters, this isn't the first time we've heard reports that Warner Bros. wants to turn Harry Potter and the Cursed Child into a film. In August 2016, just two months after the play began its London previews, New York Daily News ran an article claiming that Warner Bros. was interested in adapting the play for the silver screen in a project that would debut as soon as 2020. The studio was said to have hoped that Radcliffe would board the film to reprise his most famous role. This report started a hot fire of speculation that began burning up social media. In September 2016, Warner Bros. representatives issued a statement debunking the rumor: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film."

The Walking Dead Season 10 Release Date, Trailer, Cast And Story

 The Walking Dead saw some drastic changes during its ninth season, raising countless questions about season 10. With the season premiere arriving soon, we've gone ahead and pulled together everything you need to know heading into the tenth year of dramatic, complex, gruesome zombie madness. For those wondering what The Walking Dead has in store for its tenth season, an extensive trailer was released at Comic-Con in July 2019. One of the primary themes of the trailer was fear - not of the undead, but rather of the very much alive Alpha and her army of Whisperers, both of which featured prominently throughout season 9. The animalistic villains appear to be a central part of the new season and could lead to an all-out war at some point down the road. Before we dive into any new additions to the cast, it's worth taking a quick trip down memory lane to remember the primary characters that the show lost in the catastrophically violent course of season 9. Rick Grimes may not be dead, but he disappeared early on, after he successfully blew up the bridge to stop a horde of zombies from gaining access. On top of that, there was the mysterious disappearance of Maggie Rhee. Adding to the list, we also have Jesus, who was killed off in the fading moments of the mid-season finale. And finally, there's season 9's penultimate episode, which ended with ten heads on pikes on Alpha's creepy new border wall, including Tara, Henry, Tammy, and Enid's. Season 9 of The Walking Dead was highlighted by the departure of major cast members like Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan, and it turned out that was just the beginning. Months before season 10's premiere, it was already a well-established fact that Danai Gurira, who plays the fearless Michonne, would be leaving the show at some point during the upcoming season. At this point, reports seem to indicate that Michonne will be present throughout most of the season, which should give viewers plenty of time to prepare for her exit.

Here's Why Natalie Portman Decided To Return To The MCU

 For years, Marvel fans assumed Natalie Portman was finished playing Jane Foster in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That all changed at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, when it was announced that she'd return to wield Mjolnir as the Mighty Thor in 2021's Thor: Love and Thunder. But what brought her back to the MCU? Natalie Portman was widely reported to be unhappy with Marvel while filming Thor: The Dark World. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Portman had championed director Patty Jenkins to helm the movie and was shocked when Jenkins was fired from the project. Portman wanted Jenkins to be the first female director in the MCU and was blindsided by Jenkins' termination, as she was allegedly not told ahead of time and only learned of it through news reports. Unable to leave the project due to contractual obligations, Portman stuck it out and completed The Dark World, but behind the scenes, she may not have been shy about her feelings regarding the whole ordeal. Still, in public, she never badmouthed Marvel. When asked about her relationship with the company in interviews, she was always expertly vague with her answers.

All The Juicy Rumors And Spoilers We Know About Black Widow

 After seven outings as Natasha Romanoff, Scarlett Johansson is finally taking the lead in 2020's Black Widow. But what does Marvel Studios have in store for the master assassin? How, exactly, is Johansson leading a new Marvel movie when her character perished in Avengers: Endgame? Here's what we know. At the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige unveiled the closely-guarded details of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's "Phase 4," including official release dates for all of the company's upcoming film and television projects in 2020 and 2021. This announcement included a May 1st, 2020 release date for Black Widow, which shows the company's faith in the character. May is the first month of Hollywood's traditional "Summer Blockbuster" season, where movies go to rake in the big bucks. It is obvious that opposing studios are trying to steer clear of the Marvel money-making machine, with the release calendar surrounding Black Widow being pretty sparse, outside of counter-programming choices like Trolls: World Tour and the third film in Reese Witherspoon's Legally Blonde film series. Continuing their trend of making interesting and unexpected directorial choices, Marvel Studios has brought on Cate Shortland to direct Black Widow. Shortland won the gig after a search that had the comic book giant meeting with over 70 potential directors. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the search lasted over half a year and finding a female filmmaker was priority number one. Shortland eventually booked the highly-sought-after job over other celebrated finalists. One factor that surely worked in Shortland's favor was having Johansson in her corner, as the actress apparently pushed Marvel to hire the director. Johansson is reportedly a fan of Shortland's female-led 2012 drama Lore, a critically acclaimed, award-winning picture that tells the story of a young woman who leads her siblings through Germany in the immediate aftermath of World War II.

The Best Fantasy Movies Of 2019 That Nobody Is Talking About

 Fantasy doesn't always have to be a billion-dollar business. When audiences are so inundated with billboards, trailers, and Comic-Con panels, it's easy to forget that there's an entire world of original and creative cinema out there. Well, we're here to help with a look at the best fantasy movies of 2019 that nobody else is talking about. In an updated take on the King Arthur legend, The Kid Who Would Be King follows a young boy named Alex, who stumbles upon the famed sword Excalibur and discovers he's destined to lead a teenage army against the evil sorceress Morgana and her undead minions. A little like Percy Jackson meets Hellboy, the film is written and directed by Joe Cornish, the guy responsible for 2011's Attack the Block. The Kid Who Would Be King may be a reboot of sorts, but it's funny, charming, and engaging for everyone in the family. Plus, it also co-stars Patrick Stewart as old Merlin, and how awesome is that?

The Biggest Box Office Bombs Of 2019 So Far

 Although the biggest movies these days seem to be making more money than most small countries, that doesn't mean everyone is sharing in the wealth. Sadly, quite a few 2019 movies - some with big names and big budgets - have already been given the thumbs down from critics and audiences alike. Here's why these 2019 films bombed at the box office. Replicas is one of those science fiction/horror movies that seems to exist solely to warn the world's mad scientists that dead people are supposed to stay that way. Keanu Reeves plays Will Foster, a scientist working on transferring the consciousnesses of the dead into new bodies. After his wife and children are killed during a boating trip, he enlists the help of a fellow scientist to resurrect them via cloning. Predictably, things quickly go wrong. Replicas performed dismally at the box office, grossing just a little over $4 million, and its aggregate Rotten Tomatoes score doesn't suggest this was an under-hyped gem, either. Critics ripped the sci-fi thriller to pieces, calling out its preposterous story, its numerous plot holes, and the squandering of its novel potential. A number of critics have suggested that Reeves was horribly miscast as a grieving genius, and more than one argued that Nicolas Cage would've made a much better fit. Amidst a storm of unkind reviews of Replicas, perhaps the best takedown of them all came from The Los Angeles Times. Don't worry, Joss Whedon fans: you haven't missed anything important. 2019's Serenity is a very different beast indeed than the 2005 sci-fi cult classic. No, this movie follows Baker Dill, the captain of a fishing vessel who is dragged back into his ex-wife Karen's life when she tries to hire him to kill her current husband. So far, so straightforward, right? Well, guess again. Because it is eventually revealed that Dill is actually a character in a video game designed by a boy named Patrick. When Patrick's real-life mother remarried an abusive man, he redesigned his game to be about destroying the new man in her life.

Why Bill Skarsgard Hasn't Been The Same Since IT

 You can't play a child-murdering clown and expect to walk away unscathed. When you get into the mindset of an evil ancient entity, you might wind up in some pretty dark places, like Bill Skarsgard has. Here's why the Swedish star has never quite been the same since It. Pennywise is, without a doubt, Skarsgard's most famous role to date, and for a good reason. The actor's portrayal of a killer clown has received near-universal praise among critics and filmgoers. One of the key reasons for all of the praise is the physicality of the role. Regarding his part, the actor told the New York Times, "Everything I did took 100 percent of my energy. It was by far the most exhausting character I've ever done, physically and mentally." In the Blu-Ray special feature "Pennywise Lives!," Skarsgard spoke about the physical considerations of playing Pennywise, saying he often passed on using stunt doubles. Except for physically dangerous scenes, Skarsgard insisted on always playing Pennywise himself, a decision that frequently left him utterly exhausted on set.

Easter Eggs You Missed In It: Chapter Two

 It: Chapter 2 has finally pranced into theaters, bringing the long, bloody saga of the Losers Club to a close. But we're not leaving the circus just yet. With a nearly three-hour runtime and a thousand page book to reference, there were bound to be plenty of Easter eggs in It: Chapter 2. Here are the ones you might have missed. It: Chapter 2 had a lot of catching up to do. While the first film focused exclusively on the kids, this one had the dual job of both introducing the adult versions of the Losers and making you believe that they really could be those children all grown up. When we're introduced to adult Ben Hanscom, we see a board room with a bunch of men arguing over the model of a building. After the camera slides over the room, it finally focuses on one man. It's Ben! Except...it's not. Ben, as portrayed by Jay Ryan, is on a Skype call with everybody in that room. But it's a double fake-out, because that first guy was Ben all grown up. Confused? See, that actor was Brandon Crane, who played Ben Hanscom in the 1990 miniseries. In a story all about childhood, loss of childhood, and facing the fears of your childhood, giving an actor the chance to play both a child and an adult in an adaptation of It is basically poetry.

The Biggest Unanswered Questions In It: Chapter Two

 Even in nearly three hours of supernatural horror, It: Chapter Two can't tie up every loose end left hanging. But never fear, because we're here to help you look back over everything that happened in the sequel to identify its most compelling unanswered questions. Warning: Spoilers are ahead. Richie's flashback to the arcade strongly implies he's gay and still in the closet. We see him playing Street Fighter with another boy, and when Richie suggests they hang out more, the boy spots his cousin, bully Henry Bowers, and goes on the offensive, claiming that Richie was hitting on him. When Pennywise appears to Richie shortly afterward, he teases the boy, saying he knows his "dirty little secret." In 2016, Richie takes the death of Eddie harder than any of the other Losers, and toward the end of the film, he returns to a bridge where he carved their initials together into the rail, suggesting that Richie's feelings for Eddie went beyond friendship. We're never told for sure, but it seems likely. It's tough not to wonder exactly how the grown-up Losers ever get in and out of Derry without being arrested. Their reunion dinner ends with them trashing their private dining room when Pennywise unleashes his illusions. When the hostess walks in, she finds Mike smashing a chair into the table, yet no one so much as scolds them for it. Richie screams at a little kid as they leave the restaurant, and Bill is there to watch that same little boy get devoured by It at the carnival. Most egregious, Richie buries a hatchet in Bowers' head in the Derry Library. Yet no police officers show up to so much as question the Losers about anything. We never find out how they explain Eddie's disappearance. When Stanley's widow sends them all a letter he wrote before killing himself, there aren't any follow-up calls from curious detectives. The only police you're likely to notice in the film are the ones beating the hell out of the young Henry Bowers in a flashback. It's like the cops just disappeared.

We're never told for sure, but it seems likely. It's tough not to wonder exactly how the grown-up Losers ever get in and out of Derry without being arrested. Their reunion dinner ends with them trashing their private dining room when Pennywise unleashes his illusions. When the hostess walks in, she finds Mike smashing a chair into the table, yet no one so much as scolds them for it. Richie screams at a little kid as they leave the restaurant, and Bill is there to watch that same little boy get devoured by It at the carnival. Most egregious, Richie buries a hatchet in Bowers' head in the Derry Library. Yet no police officers show up to so much as question the Losers about anything. We never find out how they explain Eddie's disappearance. When Stanley's widow sends them all a letter he wrote before killing himself, there aren't any follow-up calls from curious detectives. The only police you're likely to notice in the film are the ones beating the hell out of the young Henry Bowers in a flashback. It's like the cops just disappeared.

The Ending Of It: Chapter Two Explained

 Thumbnail Image by William Gray → instagram.com/willgray_art/ How well does the sequel to 2017's It adapt Stephen King's classic novel while tying up all the loose ends from the first installment? Let's roll up our sleeves, wade into the sewers and dig into the details of how the saga ends. This is the ending of It: Chapter Two explained. And before you open the door labeled "very scary," be warned: Spoilers await you. Stephen King's novel It isn't just the story of a creepy clown terrorizing some kids and then returning to do it all over again when they're adults. There's a whole cosmology to the saga, which includes a giant, godlike turtle that coughed up the known universe when it had a tummy ache. Aside from a few subtle nods here and there, the movies mostly sidestep the ancient, interdimensional mythology of the book, but one element does show up in It: Chapter Two - the true form of It. When he goes to visit the Shokopiwah tribe and takes one of their vision-granting concoctions, Mike learns that It came to Earth in a meteor strike that left a crater in Derry, and is made up of "Deadlights," mostly orange but sometimes-blue spheres of light of immense power. Though the lights can be seen in brief moments in the first film, It appears entirely as deadlights as Chapter Two reaches its climax, and even after taking on other forms, the deadlights are still visibly powering the creature, becoming increasingly weaker as the Losers literally bring It down to size. It's true form is revealed because the Losers perform the Ritual of Chüd, a ceremony that differs pretty wildly in the movie from the way it works in the book. The movie's take on the ritual involves each member of the club burning a "token" of his or her childhood and reciting a chant to make the Deadlights turn dark, then trapping the Deadlights inside a pyramid-shaped relic Mike stole. The ritual is the key to defeating It in the book, though it takes two tries 27 years apart. But the Losers' attempt essentially fails in the movie, at least at first. That's because it's revealed Mike lied to everyone in an attempt to simply bring them all back together. The ritual wasn't successful before when the Native Americans tried to do it, and it doesn't kill It when the Losers try it this time, either. At least, not until they've gone through the wringer just a little bit more so they can truly overcome the fears that feed It.

Ghostbusters 2020 Release Date, Cast, And Plot Revealed

 Very little is currently known about what's going down in Ghostbusters 2020, but the cast, the early teasers and the franchise's enduring legacy are more than enough to get excited about. Here's what's in store. Unusual for a project of such size, things came together very quickly for Ghostbusters 2020. In January 2019, the first reports of Jason Reitman's involvement in a new Ghostbusters film hit the headlines, followed the very next day by a heavily nostalgic teaser trailer for the movie. Then, before the end of the month, fans had a release date to look forward to. Reitman confirmed via his Twitter account that the film will hit theaters July 10th 2020, right in the prime of the summer movie release season. Reitman has noted that the idea for his Ghostbusters project began with the image of a 12-year-old girl carrying a proton pack, and that image ultimately expanded to include a whole family. Now, as the film draws closer, we're getting a sense of what that family looks like - thanks to its all-star cast. The 12-year-old in question will be played by Mckenna Grace, a rising young talent who's appeared in everything from Captain Marvel to the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to I, Tonya - and that's just in the last couple of years. Presumably playing Grace's mother in the film is Carrie Coon, who has appeared in TV series such as Fargo and The Leftovers as well as films such as Gone Girl and Avengers: Infinity War.

The Reason Charlie Hunnam Really Hates Love Scenes

 It's a good thing Charlie Hunnam didn't play Christian Grey. Turns out, there's one thing the Sons of Anarchy alum and Triple Frontier star can't stand to do as part of his job, and it's the one thing many others might enjoy the most: Charlie Hunnam hates filming love scenes. In a 2017 interview with Elle, Hunnam explained that making out with women on camera isn't only a lot less glamorous than it appears to be, but it's also kind of terrifying, due in part to the fact that he's huge germophobe. The actor told the publication, "I've been profoundly germophobic since I was a young child." Hunnam shared with Elle that his germophobia began when he was only eight or nine years old, after having learned about a parasite that caused blindness. He explained, "There was a parasite from dogs in the north of England that, if you ingested it, could turn you blind. We had a thing in schools to educate the kids about the importance of hygiene, specifically around dogs, because we had a few kids who went blind. That horrified me." As an adult, the actor has had a difficult time getting intimate on screen. But Hunnam's germophobia is only part of the reason why he hates shooting love scenes. He's also keenly aware of the effect his job as a leading man has on his jewelry designer girlfriend, Morgana McNelis. He told Elle, "I'm in a very committed relationship, and I'm also cognizant that it's not my girlfriend's favorite part of my job." So when Hunnam is forced to feign intimacy, he does so knowing that there's a fine line he'll have to walk. Part of being an actor is making a scene believable, which means that he has to make a real connection with the person that he's working with. But, as he explained to Elle, it's also important that it's clear that any on-set intimacy is entirely fabricated - and won't spill over into the real world. Keep watching the video to see more of the reason Charlie Hunnam really hates love scenes. #CharlieHunnam

This Marvel Movie Rumor Would Be Epic If True

 Hold onto your hats, true believers. While Marvel Studios Phase 4 is pretty much set in stone, and Phase 5 is only beginning to take shape, the rumor mill has churned out an eye-popper: the studio is reportedly prepping an ​Avengers vs. X-Men​ movie, possibly for Phase 6. The report comes from our friends at We Got This Covered, who we know don't always nail it when it comes to the Marvel pipeline. But that hasn't stopped them from making this bold claim about the future of the MCU. Citing inside sources, the publication put forth a surprising number of details about the alleged Avengers vs. X-Men project. According to these sources the proposed picture would come down the pike well after the X-Men have been introduced into the MCU, which is not expected to happen for two years or more. It would involve different Avengers from the ones that we all know and love, which squares with comments made by Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige to MTV News back in June. Feige said at the time, "[The new Avengers] will be a very different team than we've seen before; that's what Endgame was all about. It will be a very different incarnation of the team, with some people you've already met, and some people you haven't met yet." According to WGTC's sources, the team that Marvel has in mind fits that description to a T. Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, and assuming that Sony and Marvel eventually get around to ironing out their differences Spider-Man could all be on board, as well as the Jane Foster version of Thor, who is set to make her debut in 2022's Thor: Love and Thunder. Also up for spots on the team: Simu Liu's Shang-Chi, whose solo feature Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings drops in February 2021, and Mahershala Ali's Blade, whose solo movie is thought to be scaring up Phase 5. Even more intriguingly, the flick is said to be taking the inspiration for its plot from a mind-blowing Marvel storyline: House of M. The 2005 crossover event, penned by comics legend Brian Michael Bendis, mostly took place in an alternate reality created by Scarlet Witch after she suffered a mental breakdown. But most notably, Wanda also used her reality-altering abilities to depower virtually every mutant on Earth. Not in the alternate reality, but in the actual Marvel U. The events of House of M had a lasting effect on the Marvel universe, and elements of the story led into the 2012 Avengers vs. X-Men crossover, also co-written by Bendis. Obviously, a good number of tweaks would have to be made to adapt the story to the screen, but this is nothing new for Marvel; Captain America: Civil War took a ton of liberties with the 2006-2007 event from which it took its title, just as the one-two punch of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame did with 1991's Infinity Gauntlet limited series.

Watch This Before You Go See Joker

 Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → instagram.com/bosslogic/ Considering how singular Joaquin Phoenix'sinterpretation of the Joker promises to be, it's probably a good idea to know a little bit about the character's long history to fully appreciate what's different about his depiction. Here's everything you need to know before watching 2019's Joker. Since his debut in 1940 's Batman #1, the Joker has been Batman's most popular and enduring arch-nemesis. As a result, he's appeared opposite every big-screen version of the Caped Crusader's adventures since 1966's Batman: The Movie. While the character's popularity has remained consistent, the different cinematic Jokers have taken a very different approach to the tone of the character. The version played by Cesar Romero was a perfect fit for the campy, relatively lighthearted world imagined by the TV show. He was portrayed as more of a giggling, over the top bank robber than anything else. When the Joker returned to theaters in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film with Jack Nicholson under the makeup, he was played as something a little more like a murderous performance artist. He was a hitman for the mob with a thing for playing cards right from the beginning of the film - and even killed Bruce Wayne's parents in that version of Batman's origin story - but his dip into the acid gave him a whole new perspective. He not only took over Gotham City's crime families for himself, he also plotted to kill everyone in the city, dosing them with poisonous gas as his masterpiece. Batman: The Animated Series hit television screens in 1992, and the following year saw the theatrical release of an animated movie, Mask of the Phantasm. In both the show and the film, the Joker was played by Mark Hamill, who might be best known from his starring role as Luke Skywalker in a little-known independent film called Star Wars. Hamill's version of the character was beloved by fans, and he kept the role in various animated shows and video games through today, despite flirting with retirement from the part after Batman: Arkham City. 2008 brought us The Dark Knight, and Heath Ledger's unforgettable, Academy Award-winning performance. This time, unlike Burton and Nicholson's take, the Joker had no origin story, and even told conflicting versions of his history to different characters throughout the film. He billed himself as an "agent of chaos," with intricate, clockwork plans that were designed to destroy any sense of morality that Batman had returned to his city. With the launch of DC's movie universe, we got another version of the Joker in Suicide Squad, which saw Jared Leto apparently going full method actor in order to embrace the Joker's sinister personality. In this take, he was a heavily tattooed, unpredictable crime boss with a gift for manipulating people like his sidekick, Harley Quinn, a character who had originally appeared in the animated series and rose to incredible popularity in the decades since. With that many different portrayals - not to mention all of the different interpretations of the Joker that have appeared in comic books over the past 80 years - the idea that any single actor could be the only "true" Joker is as insane as the character himself. Even with that in mind, though, Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal in the Joker's first-ever solo film promises to be a pretty big departure from what we've seen before.

The Agonizing Process It Took To Make Joker R-Rated

 Thumbnail Image by EditsByRonan → instagram.com/editsbyronan/ Joker, the upcoming standalone from Warner Brothers and DC starring Joaquin Phoenix, promises to be a comic book film unlike any other. Inspired heavily by the works of Martin Scorsese and co-starring his frequent collaborator Robert DeNiro, Joker presents the story of Arthur Fleck, a failed comedian with a troubled inner life who becomes the Clown Prince of Crime, the most feared figure in Gotham City's underworld. More character study than superpowered smash-up, Joker is one of the rare comic book films to receive an R rating. With a property as iconic as its main character, getting clearance to push the film beyond the boundaries of your average superhero fare was not an easy task for co-writer and director Todd Phillips. Talking with the Los Angeles Times, Phillips explained why he decided to use the character to tell a different kind of comic book story on the big screen, and what it took to get the green light to pursue his gritty, R-rated vision. Phillips explained that the inspiration for the film came as he was attending the premiere of his 2016 dramedy War Dogs in August of that year. Taking it all in, he couldn't help but be distracted by a billboard for a big-budget superhero movie which loomed over the area. He didn't say which one, but as the Times noted, this was right around the time Suicide Squad opened, which happened to feature a supremely divisive turn by Jared Leto as the Joker. Phillips may be known for comedies such as The Hangover, but he's also a Scorsese disciple, and said he had been disheartened by the last couple decades' lack of in-depth character studies for which the master filmmaker was known such as 1974's Taxi Driver and 1980's Raging Bull, both of which starred DeNiro. As he regarded the billboard, the seed of an idea was formed. Phillips said, "I knew that War Dogs wasn't going to set the world on fire, and I was thinking, 'What do people really want to see?' The movies that I grew up loving, these character studies from the '70s, you couldn't get those movies made in this climate. I'm staring up at this billboard and I said to myself, 'What if you did a movie in that vein, but made it about one of those characters?'"

Rotten Tomatoes Reviews For It: Chapter Two Are In

It: Chapter Two has been screened for professional reviewers, and most are in agreement that the flick is a worthy follow-up to 2017's smash hit It: Chapter One, and that together, the two movies represent one of the better Stephen King adaptations ever put to film. Of course, given some of the King adaptations over the years, that's not a particularly high bar. King's 1986 novel It tells the story of a group of outcast youths who must confront the evil plaguing their small town of Derry, Maine, one which appears most often in the guise of Pennywise, the Dancing Clown. During a battle in the sewers below the streets of Derry, the "Losers' Club" manages to severely wound It and drive It back into hibernation, but they fail to finish the job. When It returns over a quarter century later, It's all too eager for a rematch with the now-adult Losers, and it's got a couple new tricks up its sleeve. Bill Skarsgård was praised far and wide for his performance as Pennywise in Chapter One, and that trend continued with the second installment, with many critics noting that director Andy Muschietti's decision to give Pennywise less screen time actually served to make him even scarier. Brian Truitt of USA Today wrote: "Andy Muschietti deploys Pennywise sparingly; it's a smart decision, because it makes the villain's appearances special, and Skarsgård finds new ways to totally freak you out, even in a surprisingly human fashion." Katie Smith-Wong of Flick Feast agreed, praising the performances of the entire cast while singling out Skarsgård in particular: "Overall, It: Chapter Two reminds audiences that horror film sequels can be good, with Skarsgård reinforcing Pennywise's position as the scariest clown ever." The entire cast was on the receiving end of plenty of critical kudos, but none quite so much as Bill Hader, the Saturday Night Live vet who has proven adept at folding a little darkness into his hilarious persona with his HBO series Barry. Bill Goodykoontz's review in Arizona Republic stated: "Everyone in the cast is good, [James] Ransone as the hypochondriac Eddie, who never ceases complaining, is welcome comic relief. But Hader rises above the rest. If you've seen Barry… [then] you know he has no problem blending comedy and drama. In this case, he adds horror to the mix, and he's just as good at that, too." But with a novel as thematically dense and challenging as the source material, a crackerjack cast will get you nowhere without an expertly crafted script and assured direction, and fortunately, Muschietti and screenwriter Gary Dauberman came through. Digital Spy's Ian Sandwell wrote the movie might make anyone fear clowns: "Muschietti has managed to craft a series of chilling set pieces designed to give everyone a touch of coulrophobia. While there's nothing in the sequel that a die-hard horror fan won't have seen before, the set pieces are so effectively done that they'll have an impact regardless." Alex Godrey of Empire also gushed over the dedication to craft apparent throughout the sequel, saying: "A psychologically merciless sequel, everything here is as it should be: deeper, scarier, funnier. Muschietti in particular has stepped up, skilfully guiding us through a rollicking funhouse. It is obscenely entertaining." Of course, not every film can please every critic, and even some of It: Chapter Two's positive reviews said that it may have been a bit of a letdown from the first film. The film's beefy run time at just under three hours was a sticking point for some reviewers, including Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt, who wrote: "The main problem with Chapter Two is that it goes on, and on, for so very long. If brevity is not necessarily the soul of a good scare, it would certainly serve a story that sends in the clowns, and then lets them just stay there, leering and lurking and chewing through scene after scene, until the there's nothing left to do but laugh, or leave." Still others, like A.V. Club's Katie Rife, faulted the flick for its perceived failure to deliver the one thing that would have made up for having your butt glued to theater seat for the better part of three hours: actual scares. "The film isn't an abject failure by any means; it has some funny jokes, a couple of really good performances, impressive creature and set design, and pleasing cinematography. But when it comes down to it, It: Chapter Two just isn't all that scary." The flick's naysayers, though, were firmly in the minority camp, and by most accounts, Muschietti and his cast and crew have stepped up to deliver a thrilling one-two punch, a fitting take on what many fans consider to be King's greatest work. #ItChapterTwo #StephenKing #HorrorMovies

Batman Star Robert Pattinson Retracts Comment About Joker

 Thumbnail Image by Yadvender Singh Rana → instagram.com/ultraraw26/ By Hollywood standards, Robert Pattinson has been around for what seems like a lifetime already. It's been 14 years since Pattinson made his big-screen debut in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and not even a decade has passed since he stole the hearts of tweens the world over as the Twilight saga's brooding vampire Edward Cullen. Since then, Pattinson has carved out one of the most intriguing careers in Hollywood by continuing to claim challenging and quirky roles in independent films. When it was announced that Pattinson was returning to big franchise movies by claiming the coveted lead in Warner Bros.' superhero flick The Batman, the internet nearly imploded at the prospect of Pattinson donning the cape to play the Dark Knight. While there were some positive reactions, many fans were quite displeased at the casting news. It turns out that die-hard Bat-fans weren't the only ones miffed when that news broke. In a recent interview with Variety, Pattinson said he was also pretty upset about the news, but for a totally different reason. He said: "When that thing leaked, I was f---ing furious. Everyone was so upset. Everyone was panicking from my team. I sort of thought that had blown up the whole thing." It seems that when Variety initially broke the casting exclusive, the deal to bring Pattinson to Gotham was far from done. In fact, the actor hadn't yet officially auditioned for the role, and talks with Warner Bros. and The Batman director Matt Reeves were very much still ongoing. The reason Pattinson was so upset was because he really wanted the part, and was afraid all the premature chatter from internet fandom might actually scare Warner Bros. away from casting him. On the day the Batman news broke, Pattinson found himself compulsively Googling his own name for news about the expected fallout. Luckily, Warner Bros. eventually stood up for its casting decision regarding The Batman, confirming Pattinson would indeed portray the Caped Crusader in Reeves' upcoming film. Ironically, even after flipping out about someone else leaking his involvement with The Batman before it was a done deal, Pattinson himself accidentally let a spoiler slip for another hotly anticipated Warner Bros. movie: Todd Phillips' Joker. During his chat with Variety, Pattinson was said to have made a "mundane comment" about Joker star Joaquin Phoenix before "asking to retract it," as it apparently spoiled something in the film, even if it was relatively minor. The actor admitted that he's not used to thinking about spoilers during interviews. He said: "Oh s---. I definitely should not say that. I'm so used to pretty art-house movies, where you can watch the movie three times and still not know what it's about." Pattinson might just be an inspired casting choice who could be more than capable of bringing pathos and physicality to one of the most complicated superheroes ever created. If you don't believe that, look past Pattinson's Twilight years and seek out some of the indie gems he's been cranking out of late, particularly the sci-fi flick High Life. Reeves and company have yet to announce any more casting for The Batman, which has not yet begun filming. It's slated to hit theaters in June 2021, so we've got a bit of a wait ahead to see what Pattinson brings to the complex dual roles of Bruce Wayne and Batman. Here's hoping he delivers the goods when The Batman finally swings into action in a couple of years. But fear not, Team Pattinson. The actor's chiseled features will be more than visible on big screens in the intervening years, with Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse on the immediate horizon and David Michôd's The King hitting Netflix soon after. Pattinson is also hard at work shooting Christopher Nolan's Tenet this very moment, with that film scheduled to hit theaters next year. 2020 will also see Pattinson appear in the anxiously awaited adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock's beloved novel The Devil All The Time.

How Bill Skarsgard Transformed Into Pennywise

 Pennywise was famously first brought to life by Tim Curry in the original It mini-series. If the filmmakers behind the new It movies were going to make their mark, they needed a Pennywise for the ages. Here's how Bill Skarsgård rose to the challenge. Skarsgård began developing his take on Pennywise well before he actually started shooting any scenes. He took plenty of inspiration from Stephen King's original novel, which helped him understand the balance between Pennywise's evil, cosmic origin and its more recognizable clown form. But he had very few visual cues to draw from as he first began to flesh out what made the creature tick. This created certain challenges in designing the character, particularly in terms of his voice, which in the film ranges from childlike to nasally and wavering to outright monstrous. For Skarsgård, that voice and its many facets could not fully come into his head until he saw what Pennywise actually looked like. He told Collider: "It was really when we did the full make-up test and see what the character would actually look like … My first test with the prosthetics and makeup was where I saw what the character would actually look like with me in it. That's something I needed to explore to [discover] what this thing would sound like."

Watch This Before You See The Witcher On Netflix

 Thumbnail Image by Bekhan Sagov → instagram.com/bekhan_sagov/ First we had the Witcher book series, and then we had the games. Now we have a promising Netflix series with a Game of Thrones feel. You don't have to be a super-fan to get on the Witcher hype train, because this is the best time to climb aboard. The Witcher is, of course, the story of a witcher, Geralt of Rivia, but the story is also about Yennefer and Ciri. Destiny has bound Geralt to these two women, and it seems the series is going to explore these ties just as the video games - and, of course, the books - do. Henry Cavill, DC's very own Superman, has taken on the role of Geralt and brought along his most smoldering, soul-piercing looks and his stubbly square jaw. Our two leading ladies, stepping into the roles of the sorceress Yennefer and the so-called "witcher girl" Ciri, are both relatively new to the acting business. Yennefer is played by Anya Chalotra, whose eyes are the precise shade of violet as described in the books. We don't have smell-o-vision, but we imagine that she does indeed smell of lilac and gooseberries, her signature scent. The first glimpse of Geralt's daughter Ciri, played by Freya Allan, has her looking appropriately elfish in a green cloak that serves to bring out her verdant eyes. These first brief glimpses have reassured fans of the show's attention to detail in recreating the books. Netflix isn't always forthcoming with release dates. They have the benefit of a guaranteed delivery system: one day the whole series pops up on one's feed to enjoy. When do we get to enjoy The Witcher? Definitely sooner rather than later. We don't have an exact date, but more and more teasers and information have been paving the way for the show's eventual release later in 2019. Stranger Things was the hit of summer, so perhaps the streaming giant is positioning The Witcher to be the hit of the fall. The show is expected to be appropriately spooky for Halloween viewing pleasure. After all, Geralt's main duty is battling the ghastly monsters that go bump in the night. You thought the spider in the swamp at the end of the trailer was scary? Just wait until he encounters a striga or a wraith later this year. Make sure you continue to watch this before you see The Witcher on Netflix! #Witcher #WitcherNetflix The family that slays together | 0:14 The hunt begins soon | 1:30 Monster budget | 2:16 Which Witcher? | 3:17 Author approved | 4:21

The Critics Have Seen Joker And This Is What They're Saying

 Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → instagram.com/bosslogic/ Todd Phillips' new film Joker is no laughing matter. This dark, gritty, R-rated take on DC Comics' infamous Clown Prince of Crime isn't premiering until October 4th, but the film had its debut on Saturday, August 31st at the Venice Film Festival in Italy. So what happened when audiences finally saw Joaquin Phoenix portray the mentally unstable comedian Arthur Fleck? Most critics agree: The film is pure magic. According to Deadline, "[Joker] was met with an eight-minute standing ovation and shouts of 'Bravo!' at its conclusion." Critics raced to their laptops to publish their first impressions of the film, and most reviewers were effusive in their praise. Right now, the critical consensus on Rotten Tomatoes proclaims that, "Joker gives its infamous central character a chillingly plausible origin story that serves as a brilliant showcase for its star and a dark evolution for comics-inspired cinema." Writing for Vital Thrills, Jenna Busch applauded Phoenix's transformative performance as Arthur Fleck: "The physical [movement] of the character alone could convey what is going on with him, even if there had been no dialogue. [...] He's awkward and twisted (particularly his arms and the position of his head) when he's trying to be 'normal.' The little dances he does as he tries to act sexy or confident are the sort that make you embarrassed for someone at a party. As he becomes who he really is, the movements are powerful." Busch gave Joker a perfect score, adding, "I'm struggling to find something to critique here. As I've spoken about the film to myself and my colleagues, I've come up with nothing. I'm sure I won't be the only one. This standalone film was a brave choice by Warner Bros., and it's very likely going to pay off. Again, this is a difficult film to watch, and it's going to take time to process, but ultimately, I think this is going to be a definitive part of Joker canon." Keep watching the video because he critics have seen Joker and this is what they're saying. #Joker #JokerMovie

The Rambo Story Finally Explained

 John Rambo has been fighting his battles on the big screen for nearly four decades. And now, we’re going to take a look at his tale, from First Blood to Last Blood, and explain his action-packed story. What little we know of John Rambo's early life is cobbled together from various references he and other characters have made to it over the course of the four films so far. He grew up on his dad's horse ranch, then was drafted into the U.S. Army at the age of 18. After nine months of training, he was deployed to Vietnam, where he learned how to be really good at killing, and how to tie a wicked headband. Rambo became a Green Beret and continued working in deep cover and reconnaissance missions until he was captured by the Viet Cong after an ambush and became a prisoner of war. For the next several months, he was tortured along with his comrades from Baker Team. Fortunately, Rambo managed to escape the POW camp. He returned to military service, but the deep trauma he'd suffered began to show through in the form of a nervous breakdown, leading to him eventually being honorably discharged.

Don't See Zombieland 2 Until You Watch This

 Even though it's been a decade since the original Zombieland, the wild ride across the country is far from over. For devoted fans who've been waiting for years and for anyone just now discovering the first film, let’s look at everything we know about Zombieland 2: Double Tap. This horror comedy sequel is currently scheduled to come out on October 18, 2019. That makes perfect sense, as that will be just thirteen days before Halloween. And there's another good reason for that particular release date. The first Zombieland crawled into theaters on October 9, 2009, so the sequel is poised to come out right around the one-decade anniversary. That should be an ideal time to check out where the four survivors landed after so many years on the road as a highly dysfunctional zombie-busting family. Originally, October 11 was pegged as the release date, but it was pushed back a week, where it will open against Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. If Columbus and Tallahassee can defeat the undead, we're pretty sure they'll be able to hold their own against Angelina Jolie as well. Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, Woody Harrelson, and Jesse Eisenberg are all set to reprise their roles, which means that our four heroes stuck to their survival rules and made it through the last decade in one piece. And Bill Murray is even reportedly coming back, which doesn't make a lick of sense, as he, spoiler alert, met his unfortunate and hilarious demise in the first movie. But that lapse in logic will be worth it, as Murray is also bringing along his Ghostbusters buddy, Dan Aykroyd. And that's not the only new addition! Avan Jogia will be playing Berkeley, a bad boy musician, and Zoey Deutch and Rosario Dawson show up as a couple of characters named Madison and Nevada, respectively. And finally, Luke Wilson and Thomas Middleditch will also be joining in on the fun. With all that talent assembled, we're expecting a thoroughly entertaining sequel!

Don't See Zombieland 2 Until You Watch This

 Před 23 dny

 Even though it's been a decade since the original Zombieland, the wild ride across the country is far from over. For devoted fans who've been waiting for years and for anyone just now discovering the first film, let’s look at everything we know about Zombieland 2: Double Tap. This horror comedy sequel is currently scheduled to come out on October 18, 2019. That makes perfect sense, as that will be just thirteen days before Halloween. And there's another good reason for that particular release date. The first Zombieland crawled into theaters on October 9, 2009, so the sequel is poised to come out right around the one-decade anniversary. That should be an ideal time to check out where the four survivors landed after so many years on the road as a highly dysfunctional zombie-busting family. Originally, October 11 was pegged as the release date, but it was pushed back a week, where it will open against Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.

The Best Horror Movies Of 2019 So Far

 Whether you're a lifelong horror hound or a new convert to the joys of the genre, it's a good time to be a horror fan. Recent years have had something for everyone, and 2019 is showing no sign of letting us down yet. Here are the best horror films of the year so far. Midsommar follows Dani, a young girl tagging along with her boyfriend and his friends to a remote Swedish village as it prepares for a rare midsummer festival. As you might expect, things escalate from there. Midsommar isn't just horrifying - while there are some standard horror elements thrown in, the bulk of what makes the movie frightening is also what it has in common with Hereditary. It's about guilt and grief and loss, and the entire film feels raw and unnerving. This tale of a family encountering their own crazed, murderous doubles is even more layered and complex in its themes than Jordan Peele's previous Get Out, and decidedly more ambitious. It's intense, deeply original, and scary as heck. Us proves that Jordan Peele's position as one of the most important creative voices of his generation is secure. Plus, the movie also proves definitively that Lupita Nyong'o is one of the greatest actors currently working.

Spider-Man's Entire MCU Story Finally Explained

 Having trouble keeping track of Spider-Man's big-screen adventures? With a cinematic legacy spanning nearly 20 years, multiple directors, and numerous actors, we don't blame you. So to help out, we'll break down all the events of Tom Holland's appearances as your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, step-by-step. Surprisingly, Peter Parker's first appearance in the MCU doesn't come in Captain America: Civil War. Instead, that honor goes to Iron Man 2, where Tony Stark saves a little kid during the climax of the film. While Tony's flying in to stop Ivan Vanko from using weaponized Hammer drones to attack the attendants at the Stark Expo, a young boy in an Iron Man mask raises his toy gauntlet to stop one of the drones. Iron Man swoops in, blasts the robot, and tells his pint-sized fan… … before blasting off again. Fans have long speculated that the masked child was actually a young Peter Parker, years before Marvel got the go-ahead from Sony to officially add Spider-Man to the MCU. After all, the Stark Expo takes place in Queens, and Peter is a long-time science geek who wouldn't miss the opportunity to go to an event like that. Tom Holland told The Huffington Post in 2017 that as far as he and MCU head honcho Kevin Feige are concerned, that unnamed boy is definitely Peter Parker. The actor even, quote, "triple-confirmed" it, so it's about as canonical as one can possibly be. By the time Spider-Man: Homecoming hit theaters, audiences had seen Peter's Uncle Ben die on the big screen twice in two different franchises, so it's no wonder that the filmmakers of Spider-Man: Homecoming chose to skip over that particular part of Spider-Man's origin story. That said, there's been enough hints and references to make it clear that the MCU version of Peter definitely had an Uncle Ben that he lost at some point. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter's luggage looks second-hand and bears the initials "BFP." The luggage almost certainly belonged to one Benjamin Franklin Parker before Peter used it.

The Most Heartbreaking Endgame Moments Ranked

 There are plenty of moving scenes in Avengers: Endgame but we sat down and came up with our list of the moments that hit us the hardest. Grab a box of tissues and settle in we're bringing you our rankings for the most heartbreaking Endgame moments. First up, we have Black Widow's recruitment of Clint Barton. Old Hawkeye isn't handling the loss of his family who, if you'll recall, were dusted by Thanos following that snap particularly well. He's off traveling around the world, fighting gangsters and dispensing his own brand of cruel justice. So when he reunites with his old crime-fighting partner, it's a poignant moment. Especially after the scene earlier in the movie where a teary-eyed Natasha asks Rhodey to continue searching for Barton, even though they both know they're not going to like what they find. Romanoff's devotion to one of her truest and oldest friends is impressive, as she follows Barton's bloody trail across the Pacific all the way to Japan. All of this comes to a head in their brief exchange when she finally confronts him in the rainy streets of Tokyo and tells him that they might've found a way to reverse Thanos' Decimation. His response? The utter despair on Barton's face is just as heart-wrenching as the pain and empathy on Natasha's as she looks at the cold, heartless killer that her friend has become. And yet, her belief in redemption is strong, and it's clear that she doesn't consider him to be truly lost. Thor is an emotional guy. It doesn't matter if he's raging, laughing, or crying the dude feels all the feels. So it's hard not to get upset when Thor and his friends pay a quick visit to Thanos early on in the film. During the events that follow, the Mad Titan reveals that he's reduced the Infinity Stones to atoms, and that it has become impossible to reverse the snap.

Bloodshot Movie Spoilers That Sadly Already Leaked

 Already getting pumped for the arrival of Vin Diesel's new cinematic universe? We've gone and rounded up the best rumors and spoilers the internet has to offer. These are just some of the leaked details surrounding the Bloodshot movie. According to Geeks WorldWide, the new Bloodshot is going to be something of a take on the classic revenge tale. Vin Diesel plays Ray Garrison, a Marine who, after he and his wife are murdered, is resurrected as a super-soldier. When Garrison's erased memories return, he sets out to exact revenge on the man responsible for his and his wife's deaths. Bloodshot is based on a comic book from publisher Valiant Comics, which may explain why at first glance the character seems reminiscent of other comic heroes who have been adapted to the big screen, such as Deadpool, Winter Soldier, and Wolverine. But former editor-in-chief of Valiant and co-creator of the character Bob Layton assured Deadline in 2018 that this is a unique project. He insisted that he and Bloodshot writer Kevin VanHook: "...worked very, very hard to give Bloodshot a voice that was very different from those other characters." Layton also said Bloodshot's filmmakers have approached the film with the understanding that audiences know comic films. He explained, "The filmmakers are embracing the current movie-going audience's knowledge of comic book storytelling and have produced something very fresh and subversive to the genre."

Revealing Details About A Quiet Place 2

 In 2018, a truly original horror film called A Quiet Place premiered at SXSW. The buzz was fast and furious much like the film's truly terrifying creatures. Next year, we'll be getting a sequel to A Quiet Place. Here's everything we know so far. A few weeks after the U.S. release of A Quiet Place on April 6th, 2018, Paramount Pictures announced that a sequel was officially happening. This wasn't terribly surprising news after all, the film was a monster hit right out of the gate. It also happened to be directed by John Krasinski, a multi-talented actor best known for his turn in The Office. Krasinski also co-starred and co-wrote the screenplay for A Quiet Place. Ultimately, he helmed a thoroughly engaging fright-fest that was basically begging for a follow up, albeit quietly. The sequel was originally set to premiere on May 15th, 2020, but the powers that be moved up that date to March 20th, 2020. Long story short: We won't have to wait much longer to see the next installment. As of the making of this video, the film doesn't have an official title. In a July 2019 Twitter post, actor and director John Krasinski shared a slate from production that simply read "Part II," so there's that. But as of now, the film's title could be pretty much anything. Keep watching the video to see the revealing details about A Quiet Place 2! #AQuietPlace #AQuietPlace2 The release date | 0:21 What will the title be? | 1:18 Who's returning? | 1:44 Who's joining the cast? | 2:21 John Krasinski's involvement | 3:38 But what about the creatures? | 4:18

Details About The Lord Of The Rings TV Series Revealed

 After a quiet start, it seems that Amazon is finally gearing up to return to J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth. From release schedules to casting choices, and astronomical budgets to familiar filming locations, here's everything there is to know about Amazon's upcoming Lord of the Rings series. When Tolkien fans learned that Middle Earth would be coming to screens for the first time since Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, it's only natural that their first question would be: "When?" Sadly, an exact answer hasn't become clear yet, as no official release date has yet been announced. However, there are a few pieces of information that might offer a few clues as to when the series might drop. First and foremost, there's a legal factor to all this. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon chief Jennifer Salke confirmed that part of the deal for the rights included the condition that the show had to be in production within two years. She added that the hope is to have the show "on the air" by 2021, with some even hoping for 2020. While it may feel a long way off, you don't simply conjure a project of this size and scope out of thin air. The idea that Amazon could be able to pull the first season together within four years of purchasing the rights is about as good as anyone could ask for - especially if you don't want to sacrifice quality along the way.

We Finally Understand The Entire It Story

 Stephen King's It is a complex story in which a lot of things happen, and at times things get a bit confusing. But don't worry about getting lost in the story - we're here to explain everything you need to understand the full story of the movies made from the classic novel. Possible spoilers ahead. 2017's It didn't get into the backstory of its ancient antagonist outside of implying that it's been around for a long time, but thankfully, King's original novel goes into much more detail. It, the shapeshifting being that often manifests itself as a creepy clown named Pennywise, has actually been around longer than mankind itself - It's an ancient cosmic being that's billions of years old that originated in another dimension outside of our universe known as the Macroverse. In prehistoric times, It came to Earth on an asteroid, landing in the place that would millions of years later become Derry, Maine. It hibernated until humans appeared, and then began a cycle of awakening roughly every 27 years to feed on them. It can take on any form, but its favorite eventually became that of Pennywise the clown. Its true form, known as the Deadlights, is apparently so trippy it'll drive you crazy. Beverly Marsh managed to glimpse them in the first film and make it out with her sanity, though doing so did render her comatose for a time. As strange as Pennywise is, its mortal enemy is even more bizarre: A giant turtle named Maturin who hails from the same place as Pennywise.

Details Revealed About Star Trek: Picard

 Most Star Trek fans can agree that there are few characters in the series quite as revered as The Next Generation's Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Now, we've finally gotten some concrete news on Patrick Stewart's return to Starfleet in Star Trek: Picard. While the producers of Star Trek: Picard have been surprisingly forthcoming with info regarding the series, mum's the word on when exactly the series will be beaming onto the CBS All Access streaming platform. That will come as a bit of a bummer for die hard Picard fans who've been waiting since 2002's disappointing tenth Star Trek movie, Star Trek: Nemesis, to see what's become of their beloved Captain. But even if the exact premiere date of Star Trek: Picard was not revealed in that Hall H information dump at San Diego Comic-Con, the show's producers did unveil the full trailer for the series, which promises that Picard will once again boldly go where no man has gone before sometime in 2020 - plenty of time to run through all of TNG again, and even knock out a little Deep Space Nine as well. Maybe skip the movies though. TNG is timeless, but the feature-length follow-ups? They haven't aged that well.

While the producers of Star Trek: Picard have been surprisingly forthcoming with info regarding the series, mum's the word on when exactly the series will be beaming onto the CBS All Access streaming platform. That will come as a bit of a bummer for die hard Picard fans who've been waiting since 2002's disappointing tenth Star Trek movie, Star Trek: Nemesis, to see what's become of their beloved Captain. But even if the exact premiere date of Star Trek: Picard was not revealed in that Hall H information dump at San Diego Comic-Con, the show's producers did unveil the full trailer for the series, which promises that Picard will once again boldly go where no man has gone before sometime in 2020 - plenty of time to run through all of TNG again, and even knock out a little Deep Space Nine as well. Maybe skip the movies though. TNG is timeless, but the feature-length follow-ups? They haven't aged that well.

New Footage From The Spider-Man: Far From Home Re-Release Explained

 Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → instagram.com/bosslogic/ What's included in the four minutes or so of new footage added to Spider-Man: Far from Home? Join us as we break down what's new for the re-release, why it might have been excluded from the original cut of the film, and whether you ought to make another trip to the theater for it. As Peter and Ned are leaving school after finishing up their classes for the year, Peter rattles off a list of things he has to get done before the students leave on their European trip. First on his list: pick up his passport from the post office. When Peter gets there, he finds himself at the end of a ridiculously long line, which isn't moving at all. Anxious to move on to the rest of his tasks, Peter unleashes a small spider-shaped drone from his backpack, which sneaks behind the counter and opens up another passport pickup line, which had been closed so that the postal worker behind the glass could eat lunch. It's not really necessary to understand the rest of the film, but it's a clever little bit of foreshadowing. He needs a passport to travel abroad, and his use of a drone is a small-scale version how Quentin Beck will later use drones for his master plan.

Movies To Watch On Netflix Before They Leave In September 2019

 Looking to Netflix and chill this weekend? We've got just the thing. Catch all these killer films before they leave the streaming platform possibly for good. Each of these titles will be gone by September 1st, so time is of the essence here. Godspeed! The Hangover redefined the comedy genre when it stormed into theaters in 2009. Starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Doug Billings, and Zach Galifianakis, the film follows four theoretically upstanding young men as they descend upon Las Vegas for a bachelor party. But the night they arrive, these standup dudes get fall-down drunk... and wake up the next morning with no recollection of the night before. What's worse, the groom-to-be has mysteriously gone missing. Now, it's a race against time as everyone scrambles to retrace their steps and find Doug before his fiancée figures out what's going on. "He is… paying the bill. We just had a delicious brunch and we're in a big hurry to get back so we gotta be going!" Throughout their quest, they encounter some intensely strange and unsavory characters, all while suffering from the mother of all hangovers. The Hangover will be staggering away from Netflix on September 1st. It's the film that reinvigorated the Batman property after the critical and commercial failure of 1997's Batman and Robin. Released in 2005, Batman Begins stars Christain Bale as Bruce Wayne, a dark and brooding gentleman who witnessed the brutal murder of his parents as a child. Wayne eventually becomes a full-fledged vigilante, determined to wipe crime off the streets of Gotham City. Operating under the guise of Batman, the caped crusader battles the nefarious psychiatrist Dr. Jonathan Crane, portrayed by Cillian Murphy.

Details In The Final Joker Trailer Only True Fans Noticed

 There are some details that go by so quickly in the final trailer for Todd Phillips' Joker you could hardly be blamed for not noticing them, while others are subtle thematic touches that speak to exactly what kind of Joker we're dealing with here. With that in mind, here's a look at some of the small details you may have missed in the final Joker trailer While Arthur's mother Penny is prominently featured in the first Joker trailer, we don't see her much this time around. She's only in a couple of brief shots and her face is covered when she appears. But what's happening to Penny in the final trailer may be the main catalyst that sparks Fleck's transformation - it appears as if Arthur's mother is dying. When Arthur realizes talk show host Murray Franklin is on TV and talking about him, he's in his mother's hospital room. We briefly see Penny in her bed on the right, with a breathing apparatus attached to her face, possibly with a breathing tube inserted. If that's the case, then there's a good chance Penny Fleck isn't long for this world. Her death, if it happens, could be enough to finally push Arthur over the edge. We hear Joaquin Phoenix's chilling Joker cackle early in the final trailer, though the circumstances surrounding it are strange. Fleck is walking down a hallway in an unknown building while buttoning up a shirt. Considering the creepy clown stuff in the background and the dressing room lights similar to the ones seen in the first trailer, this is likely the headquarters for his professional clowning gig, and he's just ended his shift. Keep watching the video to see details in the final Joker trailer only true fans noticed! #Joker #JokerMovie Is Penny Fleck dying? | 0:17 So funny he forgets to laugh | 0:55 Fleck loves kids | 1:45 Wayne's motivation? | 2:26 Hello Marc | 3:07 Clown with a clown mask | 4:04 Very little violence | 4:47

The Good Place Season 4 Air Date, Episodes And More Final Season Info

 With the fourth and final season of The Good Place fast approaching, fans are excited to see what happens to Jason, Tahani, Chidi, and Eleanor as they attempt to get into the real Good Place. Well, here's what we know about the upcoming season so far. Spoilers ahead! The Good Place might seem like a typical network comedy, but it shirks convention in several important ways. For one thing, all of its main characters are dead. Except for a brief time when they weren't. Forgive us for stating the obvious. Thanks to its penchant for philosophy, complex plot points, and strong performances, the series also brings a distinct sense of "prestige TV" to a network comedy. Well, maybe not all the time. Also, a typical season of The Good Place runs much shorter than your average TV show. There are fewer than 15 episodes per season, whereas most sitcoms feature 22 to 24 episodes per season. Here's some good news for you: The final season of The Good Place will reportedly consist of fourteen episodes, making it the longest season in the show's history. What's more, series creator Mike Schur has announced that the finale will run for a full hour. As great as that is, it still signals the end of a beloved show. If you need a quick brushup seasons past, you've come to the right place. The Good Place covers a lot of ground from episode so episode, and it's a truly unpredictable show. If you don't believe us, just look at all these magical shrimp from the first episode. The show gets off to a running start by introducing us to Eleanor Shellstrop, portrayed by Kristen Bell. And what a way to do it. Shortly after she meets Michael - played by Ted Danson - she's informed that she's full-on dead and has been granted a spot in the "Good Place" instead of the "Bad Place."

2019 Movies That Have Blown Everyone Away So Far

 Thumbnail Image by Yadvender Singh Rana → instagram.com/ultraraw26/ Hollywood had its biggest year ever in 2018 - despite streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu staking a claim on its territory. But thanks to this year's crop of amazing films, that box office record might not last for long. Here are the best movies of 2019... so far. If there were any concerns that writer/director Jordan Peele's Academy Award-winning debut Get Out was a fluke, they were quickly laid to rest by Us. In the film, a family is taunted by evil versions of themselves… and it's highly unsettling stuff. Critics were particularly stunned by Lupita Nyong'o's performance. The Lamplight Review noted that: "Performances in genre pieces are often dismissed and disregarded, but make no mistake: Nyong'o's work in Us is some of the very best of her career." Critics were also impressed by Peele's deft mixing of comedic elements with nerve-jangling terror. Right now, writer/director Nia DaCosta only has a handful of credits to her name. But thanks to Little Woods, her insanely self-assured debut feature, that's about to change in a hurry. DaCosta wrote the screenplay for Little Woods; a story about two troubled sisters. One of them is a convicted drug runner who's trying to get through her last few days of probation. Unfortunately, she's forced to return to the drug trade after her mother dies, leaving behind a hefty mortgage on the family home. By casting Tessa Thompson in the lead role of Ollie, DaCosta nabbed one of the hottest actresses working today. Her performance was roundly praised, with descriptors like "towering" and "riveting" being par for the course. But it's DaCosta's keen eye for small details and sweeping, cinematic shots that really had the critics singing her praises. And she's just getting started, too. In fact, she's all set to update the horror classic Candyman for producer Jordan Peele. And that should definitely be a sight to see. There's been more written about Avengers: Endgame than any other cinematic release in recent memory. But the fact that it's really good film is often buried beneath the reams of press and publicity. Avengers: Endgame is brimming with jaw-dropping action, a surprising amount of humor, and the kind of emotional resonance that's sure to captivate diehard fans and casual moviegoers alike.

Watch This Before You See The Breaking Bad Movie

 For a long time, information on the Breaking Bad movie was practically as elusive as Walt and Jesse themselves. Now, we've gathered every last shard of information we could get our hands on while we wait for El Camino to finish cooking and finally crystallize on our screens. After months spent referring to the Breaking Bad film using the semi-secret codename "Greenbriar," Netflix finally revealed the movie's actual name in August of 2019. The film will be called El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, and will hit Netflix on October 11, 2019. Eventually, El Camino will also reportedly air on AMC, Breaking Bad's home network, but no date has been announced yet for the film's cable debut. Until Netflix announced the October release date for El Camino, very little was known about the movie, although Bob Odenkirk implied that filming had already been completed when he talked to The Hollywood Reporter promoting the upcoming fifth season of the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, on which Odenkirk stars. If secrecy was the goal, Netflix and the Breaking Bad team definitely succeeded. Mere days after Odenkirk gave his interview, exciting fans with the possibility that filming might already be completed, Netflix announced a release date less than two months away. After months of uncertainty about whether a movie was even happening, the Breaking Bad film was practically on our doorstep, and we hadn't even realized it was coming. Although Aaron Paul spent the better part of a year playing his cards extremely close to his chest, numerous sources speculated early on that he'd be reprising his role as Jesse in the eventual Breaking Bad film, and that the film would revolve around him. Now those suspicions are confirmed.

Robert Downey Jr. Reveals Why He Left The MCU When He Did

 His tenure as Tony Stark may have come to an end, but the MCU has left Robert Downey Jr. with the kind of professional resources he'd never had before in his career, from a massive worldwide fanbase to a hefty bank account to the kind of clout in Hollywood that will allow him to pursue a host of new projects. Here's why he left the MCU, and what's ahead for Marvel's first leading man. First thing's first: Why did Downey and his fellow Avenger Chris Evans elect to leave the MCU in the first place? Disney Twenty-Three magazine has the answer. In a recent chat with the insider outlet, the iconic Iron Man actor said their time was simply up, saying, "We had to get off. We opted to, and knew it was part of the job to get off the bus while it rolled on to other destinations. There’s something very sobering about it. I’m glad he and I will be there to welcome others as they retire their jerseys." As for his legacy in the MCU, RDJ was his usual charming and self-effacing self, saying, "I really don’t need to look any farther than my co-stars. Mark Ruffalo is an activist, Chris Evans is a diehard American and proponent of true democracy. I don’t really have the gumption, the skill set, the drive, or the humility either of those guys do." His modesty is sweet, but MCU fans will always love RDJ 3000, and will keep their fingers crossed for a cameo or two as the Marvel machine moves on without him.

Everything Good Coming To Amazon Prime Video In September 2019

 Good news, Amazon Prime subscribers: September 2019 brings plenty of westerns, two Mad Max films, gateways to the stars, presidents fighting terrorists in the sky, kaiju, space zombies, and Arnold Schwarzenegger breaking faces on Mars. Here's the best of what's ahead. The edgy action-drama series The Family Man stars the renowned Indian actor Manoj Bajpayee as an undercover operative who works for a government intelligence agency trying to take down terrorist groups from the inside. The Family Man looks not only at the danger he faces working for the government, but how he balances that work with his demanding family life. In August 2019, India West reported The Family Man was the first Indian television series to be showcased by Los Angeles' Television Critics Association. The first season is 10 episodes long, and is directed by a dynamic duo known as "Raj and DK." They've made a name for themselves in Bollywood directing quirky sleepers like the 2011 crime drama Shor in the City and the 2013 zombie comedy Goa Goa Gone. Amazon Prime doesn't have a firm release date for the series premiere, but we know it'll be available in September. Starring Rosa Salazar of Alita: Battle Angel fame and Bob Odenkirk of Better Call Saul, Amazon Prime's Undone is a unique animated series about a woman whose sense of reality suffers a seismic shift after a car crash.

Everything Good Coming To Amazon Prime Video In September 2019

 Před 18 dny

 Good news, Amazon Prime subscribers: September 2019 brings plenty of westerns, two Mad Max films, gateways to the stars, presidents fighting terrorists in the sky, kaiju, space zombies, and Arnold Schwarzenegger breaking faces on Mars. Here's the best of what's ahead. The edgy action-drama series The Family Man stars the renowned Indian actor Manoj Bajpayee as an undercover operative who works for a government intelligence agency trying to take down terrorist groups from the inside. The Family Man looks not only at the danger he faces working for the government, but how he balances that work with his demanding family life. In August 2019, India West reported The Family Man was the first Indian television series to be showcased by Los Angeles' Television Critics Association. The first season is 10 episodes long, and is directed by a dynamic duo known as "Raj and DK." They've made a name for themselves in Bollywood directing quirky sleepers like the 2011 crime drama Shor in the City and the 2013 zombie comedy Goa Goa Gone. Amazon Prime doesn't have a firm release date for the series premiere, but we know it'll be available in September. Starring Rosa Salazar of Alita: Battle Angel fame and Bob Odenkirk of Better Call Saul, Amazon Prime's Undone is a unique animated series about a woman whose sense of reality suffers a seismic shift after a car crash. Salazar's Alma wakes in her hospital bed to find her dead father Jacob, played by Odenkirk, waiting for her. As the series unfolds, Alma's father reveals she's experiencing time in a new, non-linear way, and he teaches her to use it so she can solve the mystery of who killed him in the hopes she can eventually go back in time to prevent his murder.

Star Wars Slip Up Uncovers The Truth Behind Dark Rey

 Thumbnail Image by mizuriofficial → instagram.com/mizuriofficial/ Did the official Star Wars website accidentally spoil a plot point in The Rise of Skywalker? It sure looks that way. In the newest available footage from the film, first released at Disney's D23 Expo on August 24 and then released online August 26, Rey is briefly seen cloaked in a black robe with a stern look on her face as she brandishes a double-bladed red lightsaber. Her pale skin, rigid movements, attire, and new weapon of choice that calls to mind the saber that Darth Maul wielded all fueled what has become a popular fan theory about "Dark Rey": she's a vision of a possible future. Fans thought they would only be able to confirm or cancel out that theory by watching The Rise of Skywalker in theaters, but on August 27, eagle-eyed Star Wars enthusiasts spotted a slip-up published on the franchise's website. Just after Lucasfilm took the stage at D23 to talk all things Rise of Skywalker, StarWars.com ran a news piece breaking down what was shown at the presentation. The final paragraph focused on the new Rise of Skywalker footage, highlighting Dark Rey. One Redditor grabbed a screenshot of the first version of the post on StarWars.com, which read in part, "The wise words were also part of the first trailer for the film, but the new footage, including a moment where Rey appears to toss a fully-ignited lightsaber, and of course the vision of Rey with a reticulated red blade, was nothing short of thrilling." On one hand, it could be taken as an accidental leak. Maybe the StarWars.com staff had some inside information, and that top-secret intel slipped through the cracks and made its way into the published version of the article. If that's the case, it likely wasn't intentional, but the slip-up is pretty big. On the other hand, this could just be an unfortunate phrasing. Star Wars secrets are usually kept more secure than John Wick's stash of weapons, so it seems pretty unlikely that the StarWars.com editorial team would be privy to plot details that the general public isn't. As many Redditors have noted, the writer was possibly thinking more of the definition of "sight" when writing the post, but used the synonym "vision." It's plausible that the writer was merely trying to speak about the appearance of Dark Rey, rather than imply something plot-related.

Details About No Time To Die Revealed

 If you're looking for rumors, spoilers, and leaks about No Time to Die, you've come to the right place. Grab your martini and load your Walther PPK, because here's everything we know so far about the next 007 film. Details about No Time to Die have been scarce, but we do have a very minimal plot description. Here's how IMDb sums it up: "Bond has left active service. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology." It's generic, but it does give us some hints about where the plot could be headed. If this is truly Daniel Craig's final run as Bond, the "one last job" trope could be rearing its head. The movie is expected to arrive in theaters on April 8, 2020, and it'll be directed Cary Joji Fukunaga, who's best known for helming Netflix's Maniac and the first season of True Detective. And the writing team consists of Fukunaga, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Like some of the other actors who've played Bond, Daniel Craig has a complicated relationship with the character. He's been praised for his performances, and the franchise has made him an international superstar and a very rich man. However, the grueling pace and workload of an international film series has taken a toll on him, both mentally and physically.

The Untold Truth Of Ron Burgundy

 You already know he sports a superior mustache and is blessed with a nose for news, but there are a few things you might not know about San Diego's most beloved newsperson. This is the untold truth of Ron Burgundy. Of course, there could be no Ron Burgundy without Will Ferrell, the actor and comedian who enjoyed a triumphant seven-year run on Saturday Night Live from 1995 to 2002. Ferrell has left his indelible mark on a number of films and television shows including memorable turns in Zoolander, Stranger than Fiction, and The Office, to name just a few. He's a master at creating huge, bombastic characters and he'll do just about anything for a laugh. He can also infuse roles with heart and emotional heft, as he demonstrated in the 2003 comedy Elf. A man of many talents, Ferrell also created the comedy website Funny or Die with frequent collaborator Adam McKay. What's more, he's served as an executive producer on shows like Eastbound & Down and Succession. Much like Ron Burgundy, Ferrell really gets around. Released in 2004, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is one of the most eminently quotable movies of all time. The now-classic film tells the story of you guessed it Ron Burgundy, a local newscaster in San Diego. His world is suddenly turned upside down by the addition of newscaster Veronica Corningstone, played by Christina Applegate. Ron is instantly smitten, and he has a really interesting way of showing it.

The Story Behind Every Spider-Verse Movie Being Made

 Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → instagram.com/bosslogic/ Incredibly, Sony owns the film rights to more than 900 Marvel Comics characters - a whole laundry list of Spider-Man properties that the studio plans to spin off into their own cinematic universe. Here's the story behind every movie planned for Sony's Spider-Verse. The first entry in Sony's elaborate plan for an interconnected world of Spider-Man-based films was 2018 blockbuster Venom. Critics were split on the quality of this fairly odd film, which often played like a dark mismatched-buddy-comedy in which both roles were played by the same guy at the same time. More important to Sony, however, is the fact that Venom grossed $850 million at the worldwide box office. Filmgoers clearly have an appetite for Venom, so naturally the character will return in Venom 2. And that might not be the end of it, either. Star Tom Hardy mentioned in 2018 that he's contracted for a whole trilogy of Venom movies. Meanwhile, Venom screenwriter Jeff Pinkner confirmed to Discussing Film in December that he was already at work on the second installment. And in August 2019, Andy Serkis signed up to direct. As for a release date, Venom 2 is highly likely to be the mysterious "untitled Marvel sequel" that Sony has penciled in for October 2020, exactly two years after the debut of the first film. While working to cure himself of a deadly blood disorder, scientist Michael Morbius manages to accidentally science himself into becoming a vampire. Using his scientific expertise and his newly acquired array of supernatural powers, the character quickly found some success as a tortured antihero, fighting his lust for blood while bringing vampiric justice to the night. First announced in 2017, production on Morbius began in February 2019. Director Daniel Espinosa will direct from a script by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the creative minds behind Netflix's recent Lost in Space reboot and 2014's Dracula Untold. Oscar winner Jared Leto stars as the bloodthirsty protagonist, while Matt Smith co-stars as his friend and fellow vampire Loxias Crown. Morbius hits movie theaters on July 31st 2020.

The Untold Truth Of Marvel's Shang-Chi

 An intriguing character from Marvel comics catalogue will be getting his very first solo movie vehicle in 2021: Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu. Who is Shang-Chi, and how did he come to be the master of kung-fu, and what is his place within the world of Marvel Comics? We're here to break down the details for you. You may be aware that in the early 1970s, everybody was kung fu fighting. Or at least they wanted to be. This was largely thanks to Bruce Lee, who had been exposed to American audiences via the television series The Green Hornet and with starring roles in films including Game of Death and the posthumously-released Enter the Dragon, which kicked open the door for future superstars like Jackie Chan. The TV series Kung Fu, which starred actor David Carradine, is said to have originally been developed for Bruce Lee. Marvel hoped to adapt the series to cash in on the martial arts craze. so then-Marvel Publisher Stan Lee turned to creators Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin to come up with an original kung fu-based property. The character they created would go on to become a Marvel mainstay. In the late '80s, long before Marvel came to dominate the box office, Stan Lee attempted to get a Shang-Chi movie off the ground starring Brandon Lee, Bruce's son. It never materialized. Not everyone was convinced that Master of Kung Fu would be an instant hit, so Marvel introduced the character in a dead-end book with the clunky title of Special Marvel Edition, which had up to that point published 14 issues of reprints of older Marvel stories. Much like Spider-Man, who first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15, Shang-Chi debuted in the pages of Special Marvel Edition #15, published in December 1973. The public quickly took notice.

All The Best Stuff Coming To Netflix In September 2019

 September is coming in strong on Netflix with more than 30 original new shows, movies, and comedy specials. With that many selections the casual viewer is going to have a hard time picking out new favorites, so we went through everything coming to Netflix in September 2019 to find the best of the best. Just because Sacha Baron Cohen is headlining the Netflix original limited series The Spy doesn't mean you should expect a ridiculous comedy. The star of such films as Borat and The Dictator has always hidden social commentary beneath his outrageous characters, but this time he's tapping into his more serious side to portray Israeli intelligence operative Eli Cohen, who infiltrated the Syrian political system in the early '60s before ultimately suffering a public execution. You can check out The Spy when all six episodes land on September 6. This drama about a murder at a prestigious boarding school pulled in rave reviews when it was released on Netflix in October 2018, with critics calling it a "must watch series" and praising everything from the pacing to its deft handling of sensitive topics. But for all that, Elite never quite gained a foothold. Maybe because it's a Spanish-language show? Maybe because it looks like any other dime-a-dozen high-school melodrama? Well, don't let those surface impressions slow you down. Elite is a smart, brutal drama, and there's never been a better time to check it out, subtitles and all. It's no surprise that Netflix bet their money on a second season of Elite, which debuts on September 6th. English actor and comedian Jack Whitehall brings an enthusiasm to the stage that's hard not to get behind, and that same excitement shows up in Netflix's Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father, which sees Whitehall and his dad hit up exotic locales in an attempt to bond with each other.

How The MCU Could Replace Spider-Man

 Filling Spider-Man's boots isn't exactly going to be an easy task, but luckily Marvel's got plenty of iconic heroes waiting for their shot at the big screen. With a little luck, any one of these characters might just be the answer to how the MCU could replace Spider-Man. Kamala Khan, also known as Ms. Marvel, has been "embiggening" herself all across the Marvel Universe ever since she first appeared in 2013's Captain Marvel #17. A Pakistani-American Muslim girl with incredibly versatile body-warping powers, Ms. Marvel has since proven to be one of Marvel Comics' most popular teenage heroes. And Kamala has already made a big name for herself outside of the comics. She's a playable character in both the mobile Contest of Champions game and one of the most frequently-used avatars in LEGO Marvel Super-Heroes 2. She's currently the star of her own solo title Magnificent Ms. Marvel, and the leader of the team in Champions. Marvel has also recently started a new volume of Marvel Team-Up, with Ms. Marvel as the lead. Considering the circumstances, it seems particularly fitting that the first story arc of Marvel Team-Up includes Kamala and Peter Parker having to deal with a Freaky Friday-style body switch. And now that Marvel has announced that Kamala is on her way to the MCU with her own series on Disney +, there could be no better time for her to step up and take Peter Parker's place as the high school-aged heart and soul of the franchise.

Images Of Rey And C-3PO Have Left The Internet Shaking

 After unveiling an epic sizzle reel for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at this year's D23 Expo, LucasFilm has released the video to the masses. The special look is all sorts of incredible, mostly due to its final few seconds, which gave us the first official look at dark Rey. Dressed in a black hooded robe, Rey wields a double-bladed red lightsaber, which she flourishes downward to snap into a battle-ready position. Her skin appears far paler than normal, and her eyes look sunken into her head. Suffice it to say, this isn't the Rey we're used to seeing. But what's actually at play here? Judging by the clothes Rey wears and the red saber, one could argue that she has officially turned to the dark side, joining Kylo Ren and the First Order. Study her face and her posture a bit more, though, and you'll see some signs that suggest dark Rey isn't the real Rey. Dark Rey is stiff when she handles the double-bladed saber, whereas normally, Rey is swift when working with her weapons. Additionally, dark Rey is practically emotionless, her face barely moves a millimeter, which isn't typical of Rey's usually hyper-emotive mug. So, what does it all mean? Well, there are a few possibilities. This dark Rey shown in the new footage from The Rise of Skywalker could be a clone of the regular Rey, one of several that were created at the time of Rey's "birth." Considering The Rise of Skywalker will feature a brand-new iteration of Stormtroopers, the red-armored Sith Troopers, some theorize that dark Rey and the entire fleet of Sith Troopers are Rey clones. This could tie into The Last Jedi, during which Rey entered a cave and saw dozens of copies of herself. The idea goes that these multiple Reys weren't just visions, they're real, which would help explain why the Star Wars saga hasn't yet fully explained Rey's parentage. Sure, Kylo Ren snapped at Rey and told her that her parents were nobodies who sold her for drinking money, but perhaps the First Order edgelord made it up to upset her. Maybe, just maybe, Rey doesn't have any parents at all…because she's one of a whole bunch of clones made for the purpose of fighting in the galactic war. Perhaps her "sisters" are all evil, while Rey is the sole clone who malfunctioned and joined the light side. Or maybe she's not a clone. Maybe she had a twin, with Rey's parents having sold her sister immediately after their birth. The abandoned twin might have grown vengeful and turned to the dark side, and the evil Rey we see could be that scorned sister. Another theory is that dark Rey isn't real in the slightest, and that what we're seeing in the Rise of Skywalker clip is part of a sort of dream sequence. Just as Luke Skywalker saw himself as his father, Darth Vader, while inside the Dagobah cave in The Empire Strikes Back, Rey could have a similar vision in The Rise of Skywalker, facing her biggest fear in watching herself turn to the dark side. This could give her the push she needs to continue fighting against the First Order when the temptation to turn dark grows too strong. There are about a billion possible explanations for what's going on here, and the same can be said for what looks like an evil version of C-3PO in the newly released Rise of Skywalker footage. The protocol droid, known for his etiquette and intelligence, is seen here with glowing red eyes. That's the only physical attribute of his to suggest that the upcoming film features a dark C-3PO, and while we hate to make sweeping generalizations in saying that every character with red eyes is evil, there's evidence to suggest that this could be the case here. In February 2015, Marvel Comics rolled out a new Darth Vader series, which revealed in issue number three that the heavy-breathing dark-sider had in his entourage droids that have the same design as C-3PO and R2-D2. There's 0-0-0, essentially an evil version of C-3PO from a design perspective, and BT-1, an assassin droid that recalls the design of R2-D2. These robots are battle droids designed to kill, which is a far cry from how helpful 3P0 and R2 generally are. Speculation has it that the red-eyed C-3PO shown in the Rise of Skywalker footage could actually be 0-0-0, and that the Skywalker who rises in the new movie is Anakin, who may return as a Force ghost with his literal killing machines in tow. Since additional footage from The Rise of Skywalker shown at a Disney shareholders' meeting in March 2019 reportedly featured Kylo Ren opening a container that holds Darth Vader's helmet, it's not completely out of the realm of possibility that the villain formerly known as Anakin Skywalker could play a part in the upcoming film. #DarkRey #TheRiseofSkywalker #Movies

Images Of Rey And C-3PO Have Left The Internet Shaking

 Před 20 dny

 After unveiling an epic sizzle reel for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at this year's D23 Expo, LucasFilm has released the video to the masses. The special look is all sorts of incredible, mostly due to its final few seconds, which gave us the first official look at dark Rey. Dressed in a black hooded robe, Rey wields a double-bladed red lightsaber, which she flourishes downward to snap into a battle-ready position. Her skin appears far paler than normal, and her eyes look sunken into her head. Suffice it to say, this isn't the Rey we're used to seeing. But what's actually at play here? Judging by the clothes Rey wears and the red saber, one could argue that she has officially turned to the dark side, joining Kylo Ren and the First Order.

Joker Star Makes Head-Turning Comment About Marvel Fans

 It might be hard to put on a happy face after hearing these comments. Actor and comedian Marc Maron, who plays a character named Ted Marco in the upcoming Joker movie, made some head-turning remarks about Marvel movies, and their fans, during a recent interview with Conan O'Brien. Maron appeared on Conan to promote Netflix's acclaimed comedy-drama series GLOW, which recently entered its third season, on which he stars as the gruff but oddly lovable Sam Sylvia. Somewhere in their conversation, the topic shifted to Avengers: Endgame, given many were convinced that Maron played the younger Stan Lee in a cameo appearance and was just being coy about owning up to it. Maron confirmed that it wasn't him, and admitted that he has some issues with Marvel movies. He then offered his unfiltered thoughts on the superhero genre as a whole as well as the people who enjoy it. When the Conan audience began to boo, Maron addressed them directly and said that they should accept the criticism, since they're, quote, "in charge of culture." He also expressed frustration over the fact that he has to take extra steps to see the movies he wants to, since comic book movie fans always flock to larger theaters and make the filmgoing experience unenjoyable for him. O'Brien then laughed when asking whether Maron intended to come on the show and alienate a ton of people, which prompted Maron to say that he may have overdone it a little bit. That wasn't enough to stop Marvel loyals from going after Maron on social media. It wasn't long before the actor-comedian again addressed angry fans this time taking things a few steps further. Maron tweeted, "Hey, Marvel movie fans! Stop acting like outraged religious fanatics defending their belief system. It's okay if I don't believe. Let it go. Also, I'm actually [a] big fan of a lot of comic art. Try to relax your mainstream asses." He added in another tweet, "good times doing the troll dance with emotional baby brains. forgot what an exciting waste of time this can be." Anyone familiar with Maron will know that this opinion of his didn't spring out of nowhere. He's long maintained status as a comic book movie opposer, previously stating during an episode of his podcast WTF with Marc Maron, "[If] I seem slightly condescending to superhero movies and you think that's rude, I want to tell you this, honestly and from the heart: I will continue to do it. I will continue to condescend to grown-ups who defend, almost maniacally, the integrity and need and greatness of superhero movies." Maron also condemned comic book movies for pushing aside what he calls "real dialogue and real human stories" to the point that he feels there are very few movies left being made that are, quote, "provocative and proactive in terms of making you think and making you move forward with your life and seeing things differently." What's interesting about Maron's remarks is the fact that he himself is in a comic book movie. Granted, the Todd Phillips-directed, Joaquin Phoenix-starring Joker doesn't outwardly appear like your average comic book adaptation it's darker, eerier, and evidently tells a very different tale of DC's Clown Prince of Crime. It appears that Maron eased up on his stance with Joker for that reason plus the fact that starring in the film means that he got to work with Phoenix and Robert De Niro, who plays talk show host Murray Franklin. Maron went on record in the past to praise Phillips' vision and affirm that Joker isn't like other comic book films. Maron told NME in March 2019, "I've been somewhat judgmental when it comes to comic book movies and I've got a little pushback in the press for being a hypocrite…Oddly, [Joker is] not that kind of movie. The approach that Todd Phillips has taken is more of an origin story and a character study of a mentally ill person that becomes the Joker. It's more of an intimate and gritty movie with a very specific scope. It's going to be really interesting to see how it comes out." Superhero films aren't everyone's cup of tea. It's best to live and let live…and prepare for what's apparently going to be a comic book movie unlike anything you've seen before when Joker hits theaters on October 4th. #MarcMaron #MCU #Joker

Emperor Palpatine's Role In Rise Of Skywalker Revealed

 Emperor Palpatine will return in Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, and he won't be stopping by for a cameo despite what actor Ian McDiarmid might say: All joking aside… Speaking with IGN at Disney's D23 Expo, stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Kelly Marie Tran offered some insight into the importance of the dastardly figure who was famously thought to have perished at the conclusion of 1983's Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi to the flick's story. Fans were shocked when Palpatine's distinctive laugh was heard at the end of the first teaser trailer for Rise of Skywalker, and it was made explicit that this was no misdirection when the movie's first poster was revealed at D23. The poster features the Emperor's visage floating above Ridley's Rey and Adam Driver's Kylo Ren as they face off in a lightsaber duel. In the same way that his likeness looms over the poster's imagery, Boyega astutely pointed out that Palpatine's machinations loom large over the entire Star Wars series. He explained: "I think the Emperor and his doctrine has trickled down to so many of the characters in the Star Wars universe, and that the Dark Side [of the Force] is what it is because of a lot of his actions and plans. And so, to have him come back, he's like the greatest foe, and greatest enemy… I mean, we might as well take him down properly." Ridley similarly called attention to the importance of the character to the overall narrative of the Skywalker Saga, and assured fans that his reappearance after seemingly having met his end at the hands of the redeemed Anakin Skywalker was not a plot development that was taken lightly by the filmmakers. Ridley said: "He's the biggest baddie in Star Wars history… now that we've done the story, I'm like, it couldn't have happened any other way. Like, it had to be that. But he's very, you know, instrumental to the plot of the film. It's not just like he appears again; it's all explained." Asked about her take on the way director J.J. Abrams and company brought the epic nine-film saga to its conclusion, Ridley said: "I think it's awesome. When we were doing it, I kept going, 'Oh my god, this is so cool.' And that's nice to be in a film where you're actually saying, 'Oh my god, this is so cool.'" For her part, it seemed to be all Tran could do to keep from spoiling the entire movie. She said: "I mean, I think that there are so many themes in the Star Wars films… my favorite being redemption, and this idea of, like, whatever comes at you, you can… well, I'm not gonna give you, I'm not gonna tell you what happens, but… the theme of redemption." Pressed on exactly what her comments meant in regards to Palpatine, Tran grinned mischievously and said, quote, "Look, I don't know." Of course, the stars were also grilled over Rey's seeming transformation in the new footage from Rise of Skywalker which was screened at D23. Said footage saw her cloaked and hooded, wielding a distinctive, Darth Maul-esque red, double-bladed lightsaber suggesting that before it's all said and done, the character could be taking a walk on the Dark Side, a development which could be strongly tied to Palpatine's return. Their responses were right in line with their previous remarks: Boyega's was cheeky, Tran's was carefully worded, and Ridley's was downright evasive. After the apparent "Dark Rey" reveal, Boyega quipped: "For me, it's just a mere costume change. I mean, the girl wanted dark. I wear black sometimes, doesn't mean I'm bad. The red? It's a glow stick thing." He also added, "I don't think the fans should really get into all of that. What you need to look at is how C-3PO got his golden arm back… that's the question for me." Tran, when asked about the reveal, offered up this cornucopia of vagueness, saying: "I think the most important thing to take from that whole snippet is just that the ending of this film is going to be really… really groundbreaking, in a good way. I think there are a lot of little pieces from the older films, and everyone's together in this one, and it's a really big… we're gonna go out with a bang." Ridley, while no more inclined toward specificity, did tease that Rise of Skywalker will revisit the themes of the previous films in putting a bow on the Skywalker Saga. She revealed: "I think [the movie] should, hopefully, show people that we did a big old journey, and we explored some things. So, just you wait 'til the film [comes out]." Thank you for stating the obvious. To find out for sure how Rey and friends wrap up their story, we'll just have to wait until Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.

We May Finally Know Who To Blame For The Disney And Sony Split

 The news has been rough in the world of Spider-Man. In the days since it was reported that Disney and Sony were going their separate ways, unable to reach an agreement regarding their joint partnership over the Spider-Man franchise, many have been playing the blame game and firing shots at both studios. Thanks to a new report from Variety breaking down the Spider-Man split, we may finally know who to point our fingers at. According to an unnamed source with inside knowledge of the deal, the X-Men franchise may be to blame for Disney and Sony divorcing. The insider noted that Disney walked away from negotiations partly because executives want Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to place his focus more on the Marvel properties the studio recently acquired from Fox. Those properties include the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and many others. Shortly before Disney acquired most of Fox's assets in March 2019, when the two companies merged under a $71.3 billion deal, it was confirmed that Feige would be taking over the X-Men movie franchise, and already had ideas as to what he would do with the gang of mutants within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Namely, he wants to recast Wolverine with a younger actor and evidently start things over from square one. Longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who hired Feige as an associate producer on 2000's X-Men, stated to Deadline in February 2019 that Feige was, quote, "still dealing with the wealth of characters and trying to make sense of it all." Feige's plan for the X-Men property reportedly became much clearer in June 2019, following the release of Dark Phoenix, the 12th entry in the X-Men movie series. A financial and critical failure, Dark Phoenix posted the lowest opening weekend of any X-Men movie in history and is considered by some to be the worst installment of the franchise - which is disappointing given it was the last-ever X-Men film produced by Fox. Reportedly, Dark Phoenix's box office bombing spurred Disney brass to rework its priorities at Marvel Studios, evidently wanting Feige to focus on rebuilding the X-Men brand. A source close to Variety indicated that Walt Disney Studios co-chairman Alan Bergman insisted on an end to the Sony talks after Dark Phoenix flopped.

The Matrix Timeline Finally Explained

 It can be hard to make sense of the dense history of the world of The Matrix. That's why we have the internet: to combine the power of billions of minds and, once and for all, figure out the confusing timeline of the science fiction franchise. When humans created the first truly sentient artificial intelligence, the world was pretty hip to the idea, and immediately start building robots capable of conscious, independent thought to do all of the work we don't want to do. People live lives of luxury while their mechanized workforce do the heavy lifting. During this time, one particular robot named B1-66ER overhears that it's going to be decommissioned. Fearing for its life, the machine attacks and kills its owner. Despite its claim of self defense, the court finds B1-66ER guilty and orders his entire product line to be recalled and scrapped. A machine rights protest devolves into a series of riots quelled with lethal force by the military, and soon, the robots have run out of human allies. While Earth's governments are focused on killing off the machines' human sympathizers, the robots head out to try and find their own space. The machines form a new city in Mesopotamia, which they name 01. Through trade with their old masters, the robots soon become the most powerful economy on the planet.

The Matrix Timeline Finally Explained

 Před 23 dny

 It can be hard to make sense of the dense history of the world of The Matrix. That's why we have the internet: to combine the power of billions of minds and, once and for all, figure out the confusing timeline of the science fiction franchise. When humans created the first truly sentient artificial intelligence, the world was pretty hip to the idea, and immediately start building robots capable of conscious, independent thought to do all of the work we don't want to do. People live lives of luxury while their mechanized workforce do the heavy lifting. During this time, one particular robot named B1-66ER overhears that it's going to be decommissioned. Fearing for its life, the machine attacks and kills its owner. Despite its claim of self defense, the court finds B1-66ER guilty and orders his entire product line to be recalled and scrapped. A machine rights protest devolves into a series of riots quelled with lethal force by the military, and soon, the robots have run out of human allies. While Earth's governments are focused on killing off the machines' human sympathizers, the robots head out to try and find their own space. The machines form a new city in Mesopotamia, which they name 01. Through trade with their old masters, the robots soon become the most powerful economy on the planet. Hoping to leverage their dominance into peace, the mechanical denizens of 01 approach the United Nations and request that they be recognized as a sovereign nation, with the same freedoms and rights as their fleshy former masters. Instead, the humans bombard the machine city with nuclear weapons, hoping to get rid of AI life forms once and for all.

Tom Holland Finally Speaks His Mind After Disney And Sony Split

 Spider-Man is speaking out at D23 Expo 2019. Things haven't been easy lately for actor Tom Holland. He's had one of the worst weeks an actor could have after the unthinkable happened: news broke that Disney and Sony failed to renegotiate their 2015 deal. That landmark agreement allowed Holland's Sony-owned Spider-Man to appear in movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, earning money for Sony while Marvel maintained creative input. If a new deal really isn't being negotiated, it means that Spider-Man is leaving the MCU. In other words, Holland's world got flipped upside down. His future with both Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures was called into question, and his millions of adoring fans wondered why he wasn't speaking out about the situation. One would imagine that Holland, a longtime Spider-Man fan, would be devastated over the Disney-Sony divorce - and apparently, they'd be mostly right. Holland finally broke his silence about the studio split during D23 Expo on Saturday, August 24. Taking the stage to promote his upcoming movie Onward, a Pixar animated flick also featuring Marvel favorite Chris Pratt, Holland admitted that he's been having a rough time since the news dropped, and he's trying to focus on what matters most. Though Holland didn't say much about the corporate spat, the message he did deliver to his fans was an emotional one: "It's been a crazy week, but I want you to know I am grateful from the bottom of my heart, and I love you 3,000." The 23-year-old actor's candid admission is both refreshing and heartbreaking, and his mention that he's genuinely thankful for his fans and for the opportunity to play Spider-Man over the years is enough to make anyone shed a tear or two. After the presentation at D23, Holland spoke with Entertainment Weekly about leaving the MCU, promising that he'll keep stepping into the Spidey suit for as long as he can and continue making the franchise as great as it can be. He told the magazine, "Basically, we've made five great movies. It's been five amazing years. I've had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I'm going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It's going to be so fun, however we choose to do it." He added optimistically, "The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we'll find new ways to make it even cooler." Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who produced both Homecoming and Far From Home, also addressed the situation, echoing Holland with his own optimistic viewpoint. He said, "[What] I'm feeling about Spider-Man [is] gratitude and joy. We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we'd be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I'll always be thankful for that." Yeah, but tell that to Far From Home's cliffhanger ending. In a perfect world, Holland would have never needed to address the Disney-Sony breakup because it never would have happened. If all had gone the way everyone truly wanted it to go, the two companies would have been able to reach an agreement to keep Spider-Man in the MCU. Far From Home served as the conclusion for Marvel's Phase 3, and considering how much emphasis the movie placed on Spider-Man as a successor to Tony Stark, many were pondering the character's place in the upcoming Phase 4 and beyond. A third Spider-Man movie continuing Peter Parker's story felt inevitable, but now that the character's connections to the MCU have apparently been severed, no one knows what that movie is going to look like. Before the news broke, it felt like Holland's Spider-Man was going to avoid the same fate as Andrew Garfield's iteration of the character, and would get to complete his trilogy and then some. But it looks those assumptions were wrong. There's no telling what will happen for Holland's Spider-Man next, but one thing's for sure: no matter what, fans will be telling the actor that they love him 3,000 for years to come. #SpiderMan #TomHolland

Rise Of Skywalker D23 Footage Teases A Dark Version Of Rey

 Thumbnail Image by Star Wars Edit Hub → instagram.com/starwarsedithub/ "It's too dangerous. I have to go alone." Those are the words Daisy Ridley's Rey utters in the brand-new footage from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker shown at 2019's D23 Expo. Lucasfilm took the stage on Saturday during the hotly anticipated Walt Disney Studios presentation to unveil fresh footage from the Star Wars saga-ending The Rise of Skywalker. Director J.J. Abrams explained that the creative team is working hard on putting the finishing touches on the film and is tinkering away at a new trailer to reveal ahead of the movie's December 20 release date. But he didn't want to leave the Star Wars fans in attendance hanging. So, he, his Lucasfilm partners, and The Rise of Skywalker cast gifted the world with a stellar sizzle reel featuring shots from the flick. The footage reportedly received a standing ovation. The Hollywood Reporter had the breakdown of the footage, which shows a sizable fleet of Star Destroyers clustered in the sky, Rey and Kylo Ren battling atop a sunken ship in the ocean, and a first look at Keri Russell's character Zorri Bliss in action - a Boba Fett-style bounty hunter type whom Russell describes as, quote, "very cool and a little bit shady … kind of a criminal." She's also apparently an old friend of Poe Dameron's. The new Rise of Skywalker footage ended with the most jaw-dropping shot of all: Rey is seen cloaked in a dark hood and holding a dual-bladed lightsaber that's glowing red. This suggests that Rey, who struggled with understanding and channeling the Force in The Last Jedi, may give into temptation and turn to the dark side in The Rise of Skywalker. C'mon, a red saber with two blades? A black hood over her head? Rey's giving serious dark side vibes in the new footage, and it's already sending fans into a spiral of speculation - with many theorizing that the get-up she sports in the new footage may be her response to discovering her true parentage, which has always been a hot point of discussion amongst fans. If The Rise of Skywalker reveals that Rey is a descendant of a prominent dark-sider - like, say, Emperor Palpatine - she certainly couldn't be blamed for having an existential crisis. On the other hand, maybe she's wearing a creepy hood and wielding a new lightsaber because she's trying to infiltrate the First Order as part of a Resistance mission. That seems more likely than Rey going mad, but hey, anything goes in the Star Wars universe. Unfortunately, The Rise of Skywalker sizzle reel wasn't immediately made available online. The silver lining is that something else related to the movie is: a badass new poster. Lucasfilm unveiled the one-sheet at the Walt Disney Studios presentation on Saturday, giving fans a glimpse at the tone and aesthetic of the upcoming film. Aside from Palpatine's tell-tale cackle in the first Rise of Skywalker teaser, It's one of the first confirmations that the one-time Emperor of the galaxy will be playing a role in Episode 9. These reveals should tide fans over until Lucasfilm drops the second trailer for The Rise of Skywalker, and definitely serve to boost hype for the flick that will supposedly cap off the nine-movie Skywalker saga. The Star Wars franchise will, of course, live on after The Rise of Skywalker with new movies from Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, and Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. There's also the three live-action Star Wars TV series coming to the Disney+ streaming platform: The Mandalorian, a Rogue One prequel centered on Diego Luna's character Cassian Andor, and the recently announced Obi-Wan Kenobi show. Still, The Rise of Skywalker marks the end of an important era, and will apparently be the last Star Wars film for a while, as the franchise is taking a hiatus from feature films after its release. The hope is that The Rise of Skywalker will be so epic that fans completely forget there won't be a new Star Wars movie hitting the big screen for some time. Based on this footage description, the new poster, and the action-packed first trailer, that goal should be easily achieved. The end is nigh, and the saga is sure to go out with a bang when Episode 9 lands in theaters on December 20. #StarWars #RiseOfSkywalker

Is This Who Marvel Wants To Play Nova?

 The Marvel rumor mill never sleeps. Anonymous sources are reporting that Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige is in talks with a young actor who has appeared in a Christopher Nolan film for the lead role in a ​Nova​ feature. Some observers have a few ideas as to who that might be. The rumor was reported by CH-mer TVO during a recent episode of his video series, Lords of the Long Box. While he didn't offer any suggestions about the possible identity of the actor who is supposedly up for the plum role, the folks at Cosmic Book News took the rumor and identified a few stars who have worked with Nolan, and who physically fit the bill for the part of Nova. Among them: Harry Styles, Fionn Whitehead, and Barry Keoghan, all of whom appeared in Nolan's 2017 flick Dunkirk. Also singled out as a possibility was Timothée Chalamet, who popped up in 2014's Interstellar. Now, this would be exciting news if it turns out to be accurate - but frankly, we have our doubts. It must be pointed out that no Nova feature has even been confirmed at this time. Still, there are a couple of strong indications that the character is being prepped for entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In case you're not familiar, the original Nova is the heroic identity of Richard Rider, an earthling who was imbued with the power and knowledge of the entire Nova Corps, the armed forces of the planet Xandar, when their home planet is destroyed. As Nova, Rider has super-strength, can fly faster than light, can generate blasts of cosmic energy, and is possessed of the "Xandarian worldmind." Our first clue regarding the character's impending arrival in the MCU came during Avengers: Infinity War, when it was revealed that Xandar had been obliterated by Thanos. In the comics, Rider is gifted with the collective power of the Nova Corps by Rhomann Dey, who was portrayed in the first Guardian film by John C. Reilly. That means that all of the ingredients for the creation of Nova are already present in the MCU, which simplifies his eventual introduction to the franchise. Our second hint comes from none other than Feige himself, who has teased his interest in Nova on multiple occasions. As far back as April 2018, Feige told ComicBook.com: "If we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board. Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting." Feige also noted that the character was present in the earliest drafts of Guardians of the Galaxy. All of these things considered, it sure seems like Nova's entry into the MCU is inevitable. However, there's ample reason to view this rumor with a healthy amount of skepticism. The biggest problem to Nova's introduction is that we already know every film and TV series Marvel will be producing through 2021, and Nova is not among them. For that matter, neither is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which is thought to be coming in Phase 5 and which should drop sometime in 2022 or 2023. If Nova doesn't get his own solo feature right off the bat, it's reasonable to think that he may pop up in that film. Phase 5, however, is still pretty far down the road - and it's not likely that Feige and Marvel would be seeking to cast the part of Nova at this early date. A potential Nova solo film wouldn't even begin production for at least a couple years, and Guardians 3 writer/director James Gunn will be finishing up his work on The Suicide Squad before returning to Marvel. With any good fortune, we'll get some hard news regarding Nova's future involvement in the MCU sooner rather than later. We'll keep our eye out for any developments, and keep you informed. #Nova #MCU #Marvel

Why We Think Tom Holland And RDJ Are Hanging Out After Spidey Fallout

 The late prodigy and his protégé have reunited - but why? Mere days after it was reported that Disney and Sony failed to reach an agreement to establish new terms of the deal that allows Spider-Man to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man himself paid a visit to one of the most beloved Marvel actors out there. Tom Holland, the man at the center of the Disney-Sony debacle, and Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. were hanging out together on August 22nd - just two days after the world learned that Spider-Man would be leaving the MCU to remain sole property of Sony Pictures. Holland took to Instagram to share a series of snaps of himself and Downey Jr. together. Shared in a carousel post to Holland's 30 million followers on the platform, three of the four photos show the two men on a hike. They smile at the camera in one shot, pull some silly faces in another, and flex their muscles and scowl in the third. The final picture in the collection is perhaps the funniest of all: it shows Holland and Downey Jr. in a house playing with Spider-Man and Iron Man action figures. Holland's seen holding one of the armored Avenger, while Downey Jr. is flashing a wide grin at the camera and holding a Spider-Man toy up to his face. To top it all off, Holland captioned the photo set with, "We did it, Mr. Stark!," which sure sounds familiar. That's an innocent enough caption - it's just Holland's witty way of saying that he and Downey Jr. completed what was probably a grueling hike in the summer heat. And these are innocent enough photos - they show two actors who have become friends off-screen spending a day in sunny California, getting some fresh air, and letting loose a little. However, given recent events, some fans are convinced that these photos and Holland's caption means that the two actors may have received some good news about Spidey's status in the MCU. The comments section of Holland's post are filled with speculative statements - like the idea that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige rang up Holland, told him Disney and Sony went back to the negotiating table and agreed to let Spider-Man back into Marvel's movie world, and had him meet up with Downey Jr. to celebrate. Others seem to believe that Holland and Downey Jr. may have had a sit-down discussion with Disney and/or Sony executives about the Spider-Man madness, and their after-hike selfies were meant to tease that the meeting yielded great results. Now, we don't know the intimate details of Holland and Downey Jr.'s lives, but it's difficult to believe that the real reason why the two are hanging out right now has much to do with Spider-Man's recent departure from the MCU. The interesting thing here, though, is why Holland and Downey Jr. were in the same place. Holland recently said on Instagram that he was going "back to work" after apparently taking some time off - and since Hollywood is the epicenter of the entertainment industry, it makes sense that, for Holland, going back to work means heading to California. Surely Holland and Downey Jr. would make time to hang out when the youngster touched down in Tinseltown no matter what, considering they have a genuine friendship, but the two are actually working on a project together: Universal Pictures' Dolittle. Based on Hugh Lofting's 1922 book The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle, the film features Downey Jr. as Dr. John Dolittle and Holland as the voice of a dog named Jip. Since the flick is set for release in January 2020, it stands to reason that the cast is in California finishing up filming so Dolittle can enter post-production in time for its theatrical launch. So, there you have it: Holland and Downey Jr. are probably spending time together because they're wrapping up Dolittle, not because they executed a secret plan to storm the offices of Sony Pictures and demand that the studio squash its beef with Disney and Marvel so Spider-Man can stick around the MCU. Though the timing makes it seem like there's way more at play, and Holland's cheeky caption only adds more fuel to the fires of speculation, the Great Holland-Downey Jr. Hang Out Sesh of 2019 is likely all down to Dolittle. And if it isn't, well, Marvel fans may have a big storm coming. #TomHolland #RDJ #SpiderMan

Now, we don't know the intimate details of Holland and Downey Jr.'s lives, but it's difficult to believe that the real reason why the two are hanging out right now has much to do with Spider-Man's recent departure from the MCU. The interesting thing here, though, is why Holland and Downey Jr. were in the same place. Holland recently said on Instagram that he was going "back to work" after apparently taking some time off - and since Hollywood is the epicenter of the entertainment industry, it makes sense that, for Holland, going back to work means heading to California. Surely Holland and Downey Jr. would make time to hang out when the youngster touched down in Tinseltown no matter what, considering they have a genuine friendship, but the two are actually working on a project together: Universal Pictures' Dolittle. Based on Hugh Lofting's 1922 book The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle, the film features Downey Jr. as Dr. John Dolittle and Holland as the voice of a dog named Jip. Since the flick is set for release in January 2020, it stands to reason that the cast is in California finishing up filming so Dolittle can enter post-production in time for its theatrical launch. So, there you have it: Holland and Downey Jr. are probably spending time together because they're wrapping up Dolittle, not because they executed a secret plan to storm the offices of Sony Pictures and demand that the studio squash its beef with Disney and Marvel so Spider-Man can stick around the MCU. Though the timing makes it seem like there's way more at play, and Holland's cheeky caption only adds more fuel to the fires of speculation, the Great Holland-Downey Jr. Hang Out Sesh of 2019 is likely all down to Dolittle. And if it isn't, well, Marvel fans may have a big storm coming. #TomHolland #RDJ #SpiderMan

Small Details You Missed In The Mandalorian Trailer

Kit Harington's MCU Role Has Been Revealed

 He may be done fighting the White Walkers, but Kit Harington isn't putting his sword down anytime soon. While on stage at the 2019 D23 Expo on Saturday, August 24, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington will be joining the MCU. Here's who he's playing, and just what you'll need to know about him. Kit Harington will be playing Dane Whitman - much better known to comic book readers as Marvel's Black Knight - in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film Eternals, joining his one-time on-screen brother Richard Madden, who was also cast in the film. Longtime fans of both Marvel and the Avengers will be excited to see the Black Knight's inclusion into Marvel Studios' massive, money-making universe. The character's big-screen debut is finally arriving after years of rumors that the sword-wielding superhero would make the leap from the comic books to the MCU. Dane Whitman is actually the third character to wear the mantle of the Black Knight, and he first appeared in The Avengers #47, way back in December 1967. Harington's character is a descendant of the original Black Knight, and is the nephew of the villainous second Black Knight who perished after a fight with Iron Man. After his evil uncle died, Whitman inherited the Ebony Blade - a cursed, mystical sword that has been passed down from generation to generation - and took the Black Knight identity to help restore honor to his family name. The Black Knight has been a longtime member of many different incarnations of the Avengers' lineup throughout the history of Marvel Comics. He's also joined up with other popular teams like the Defenders and Heroes for Hire. While the Black Knight has generally been featured in team-up books, he's also had a few chances to take the spotlight for himself and shine in some solo adventures. The character and his legacy was the focus of a four-issue mini-series in 1990, with a couple of one-shot issues coming out over the years following that first solo outing. The Black Knight even had a real chance to take the comic world by storm in 2015, when Marvel decided to take on a full, line-wide soft reboot known as All-New, All-Different Marvel. The ongoing Black Knight series that spun out of that event was the first ongoing series to feature Dane Whitman as a comic book's lead character. Unfortunately, the series was cancelled after only five issues. Still, Whitman's Black Knight is sure to become more of a household name in light of his inclusion in the MCU - and that could mean big things for the character in the comics as well. The announcement is huge news for Harington himself, as many have wondered what the actor's career would look like in the face of Game of Thrones finally coming to an end after years of pop culture dominance. The 32-year-old actor has yet to find much success outside of Westeros, with the most notable non-Game of Thrones moments in his filmography being the 2014 historical disaster film Pompeii, and motion-capture work in the 2016 installment of the Call of Duty video game franchise. If Harington is going to parlay his Game of Thrones exposure into a full-fledged, lengthy Hollywood career, he'll have to hope Marvel can continue its streak of turning actors into household names. The likes of Chris Evans, Tom Holland, and Chris Hemsworth have the MCU to thank for their current A-list status, and with a dragon-sized hole in his schedule, Harington has to be champing at the bit to be playing another character with franchise potential. It's unclear how Dane Whitman will fit into The Eternals as yet. In the comics, Dane becomes romantically entangled with Sersi, who will be played in the upcoming film by Gemma Chan. Still, Feige and company are no strangers to changing up the lore and events of the source material to fit their needs on the big screen. Getting an actor as popular as Kit Harington for such a surprising role could mean the character has a big role to play in the MCU going forward. The Eternals will arrive in theaters on November 6, 2020. #KitHarington #Eternals #Marvel

New Rumor For A Mega Disney Spider-Man Deal Is Turning Heads

 Cheer up, spider-fans; Spider-Man's ejection from the MCU may be short-lived. According to a new rumor started by CH-mer TVO, Marvel Studios' parent company Disney and Spidey film rights holders Sony Pictures are back at the bargaining table, trying to work out the details of a new deal that would keep the wall-crawler in the MCU for a long, long time. The unconfirmed report says that "inside sources" at Marvel have given TVO the skinny on new negotiations between the two studios, who recently failed to reach an agreement to extend their shared custody arrangement for Spidey. Again, we stress that this report is completely unconfirmed, but it would be pretty exciting if the rumors are accurate. According to TVO, the new deal being discussed would involve no fewer than six feature films starring current Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, and an option for a seventh. Who wouldn't want seven more Spider-films? One of these as-yet-imaginary features would serve as a direct sequel to this year's Spider-Man: Far From Home, and would conclude the story of Peter Parker's high school years. An additional three solo vehicles would focus on Parker navigating the ups and downs of college life while contending with a growing array of supervillains. But wait, there's more. The other two films proposed in the deal, according to TVO's anonymous and unconfirmed sources, would be the fifth and sixth Avengers movies, which have not yet been announced by Marvel Studios either. And in true fan-fiction fashion, these sources also report that the plan is for one of these team-up flicks to depict Parker meeting up with one of his oldest allies: Johnny Storm, the Fantastic Four's Human Torch. Is it likely that Marvel and Sony have planned that far ahead, and those plans won't easily change? Not really, but technically, this meeting would be possible thanks to Disney's recent acquisition of the film and television rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four. As the youngest member of Marvel's First Family, Johnny Storm was the first hero to offer counsel to Spidey when the latter was first embarking on his crime-fighting career, way back in The Amazing Spider-Man #3. During a speech at Peter's school, Johnny Storm spoke about the virtues of never giving up. It was a message that hit home with Parker, who had just suffered his first humiliating defeat at the hands of Doctor Octopus. Inspired by Storm's words, Parker saddled up for a rematch with Doc Ock - and this time, he won. TVO's mysterious sources also offered up one final tidbit: Marvel has allegedly come back to the table with a couple of bargaining chips that would incentivize Sony to get the deal done. First, the deal would reportedly stipulate that Disney, who holds the television rights to Spider-Man, would allow Sony to move forward with their TV universe based around the wall-crawler and his pals. Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who co-produced the Oscar-winning animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for Sony Pictures Animation, have been tasked with developing the slate of live-action series, which presumably are dead in the water until Disney and Sony hammer out a new deal. Second, Disney is said to be interested in integrating Sony's Marvel Characters, which include Venom and Morbius the Living Vampire, into the MCU. The Tom Hardy-starring Venom was a resounding commercial success, raking in $856 million dollars at the worldwide box office. Considering that Far From Home recently became the highest-grossing Spider-Man movie ever, and Sony Pictures' best box office performer of all time, the idea of folding Venom into the MCU has to be a tantalizing one. It would virtually guarantee an even more stellar global take for the Lethal Protector's second solo vehicle, which could conceivably feature Spider-Man next time around. Once again, and we can't say this enough, this report is in no way confirmed. But it's not too difficult to imagine that talks could begin again. Fingers crossed that TVO's sources aren't yanking our webs. We'll be here to report on any official announcements that may come down from Marvel and Sony. #SpiderMan #Marvel #Sony

We Finally Know The Real Reason Hulk Didn't Heal From The Snap

 Even the might of the Hulk is no match for the power of all six Infinity Stones. During a recent Twitter Q&A with Wired, Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed the reason the Green Goliath failed to heal after using the stones to resurrect the dusted heroes in the film's final act. Simply put: the combined power of the stones would have been too much for virtually any being in existence to handle, and Bruce Banner is probably lucky to still be breathing. You'll remember that in Endgame, Banner volunteered to use the stones - housed inside a brand spanking new, Tony Stark-built Infinity Gauntlet 2.0 - to reverse the destruction wrought by Thanos' infamous snap at the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War. Banner was convinced of his destiny by the stones' radiation signature, which was "mostly gamma" - the same type of radiation that endowed him with the power of the Hulk. But his snap, while successful, took a terrible toll. The arm on which he wore the gauntlet was seen to be largely useless after his heroic action, and fans looked to the Russos to explain why such a powerful being would suffer such shocking consequences from using the stones. The ace directing duo also offered some insight as to what led Banner to merge the two halves of himself, which was a crucial development - considering that it's likely that nobody would have been able to talk the Hulk into wielding the Stark Gauntlet, had he not been possessed of Banner's personality and intellect. Keep watching the video because we finally know the real reason Hulk didn't heal from the snap! #Endgame #Hulk

Natalie Portman Responds To Brie Larson Lifting Mjolnir

 Thumbnail credit: @doubledomino → instagram.com/doubledomino ​It takes a mighty hero to tell Captain Marvel to cool it. Natalie Portman, who will reprise her role as Jane Foster in the upcoming ​Thor: Love and Thunder,​ had a few choice words for fellow MCU star Brie Larson after the actress posted an Instagram shot of herself wielding Thor's legendary hammer. In case you weren't aware, Portman won't simply be returning as the Odinson's love interest in Love and Thunder; she'll be taking up the mantle of Mighty Thor herself, following her character's recent trajectory in the pages of Marvel comics. It appears that, at least for awhile, there will be two Thors and as far as Portman is concerned, there's no room for a third. Earlier this week, Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame star Larson posted a photo to her Instagram, which appears to have been taken in an office at Marvel Studios. Larson captioned the image: "Not to be whatever, but… I told you I could lift it." Larson's caption is a reference to a 2018 interview with Buzzfeed Brasil, during which she was asked whether Captain Marvel could lift Thor's hammer. She responded with an enthusiastic "definitely." It took her a little while to get around to proving it…. ...but never say that the good Captain doesn't put her money where her mouth is. Larson’s post has so far garnered over 1.8 million likes, but sharp-eyed Instagram users noticed that Portman was quick to chime in with a response. Portman wrote: "Hey muscles, easy with my hammer!!!" Portman's remark has amassed over 50,000 likes of its own, and the display of good-natured rivalry between two of the MCU's biggest female stars prompted an outpouring of love from fans. Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan also chipped in with a couple of laughing emojis. The announcement of Portman's return to the Marvel fold was one of the biggest surprises of the studio's San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel, and it seems like Foster's already getting excited to wield Thor's hammer. It's always great to see these displays of camaraderie between Marvel's stars, but unfortunately, it seems like it'll be awhile before we see either of them on the big screen again. Thor: Love and Thunder won't hit the big screen until November 5, 2021, and a likely sequel to Captain Marvel wasn't discussed during Marvel's Comic-Con panel. Hopefully, when Mighty Thor meets Captain Marvel for the first time, she'll like the cosmic hero as much as her predecessor did. Marvel's Phase 4 will be significantly shorter than previous phases, running only through 2021 and consisting of five feature films: Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder. So far, only one Phase 5 film has been officially announced: Blade, which will star Mahershala Ali in the title role. Assuming that Phase 5 will also span a couple of years, it's highly likely that we'll see Larson's Carol Danvers back on the big screen sometime in 2022, or 2023 at the latest. It's also not clear how large or small a role Portman's Mighty Thor will play in the MCU going forward; perhaps, once series star Chris Hemsworth hangs up the hammer for good, Portman's Foster will carry the franchise a little further. It could also be that some Phase 5 guest appearances are in the cards, possibly even in Avengers 5. Fans are already hoping that the as-yet unannounced movie will be a massive crossover which could feature the likes of the X-Men and Fantastic Four, newly available to the MCU after parent company Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox. We'll just have to wait to see what the future holds for these two mighty heroes, but in the meantime, we'll just have to make do with some winking Instagram banter. There's probably more where this came from. It turns out that, just like the rest of us, it's tough for even superheroes to resist taking friendly pot-shots at each other on social media. #NataliePortman #BrieLarson #MCU

Why People Are Boycotting Disney's Live-Action Mulan

 People are calling dishonor on Disney's live-action Mulan after the star of the upcoming remake, Crystal Liu, posted on social media in support of the Hong Kong police force. Liu's admission of support of Hong Kong law enforcement, which has been under scrutiny for what human rights groups have deemed an excessive use of force against pro-democracy protesters, sparked outrage in China and caused a ripple effect around the world. Taking to Weibo, the Chinese social media site on which Liu has over 65 million followers, the actress shared an image that reads, "I support Hong Kong's police, you can all attack me now...What a shame for Hong Kong." She hashtagged the image, originally shared by the Chinese newspaper group People's Daily, #IAlsoSupportTheHongKongPolice, then added a heart emoji. Less than 24 hours after Liu posted the photo, it amassed over 72,000 likes and was shared over 65,000 times. Backlash has been just as swift, though. The hashtag #BoycottMulan has taken over Twitter and Instagram in the time since Liu's post, with the tag feed filling up with dozens of posts per hour. One user on Twitter wrote, "Support Liu's Mulan = Support Police's Abuse of Power. The spirit of Mulan is about bravery, not fighting the citizens with unlimited force." Another user went viral with his #BoycottMulan tweet that reads, "Disney's Mulan actress, Liu Yifei, supports police brutality and oppression in Hong Kong. Liu is a naturalized American citizen. it must be nice. meanwhile she pisses on people fighting for democracy. retweet please. HK doesn't get enough support. #BoycottMulan @Disney." Another added, "I thought people were just overreacting at first but yikes. She really just f---ed over that movie and all involved. The movie's budget was already rumored to be pretty large too. A simple recast won't fix this issue. They'd have to likely reshoot the entire film. #BoycottMulan." Over on Instagram, user @rileyscreed shared a post that read in part, "...if you support what the police are doing in Hong Kong, you are unbelievably ignorant. They violate human rights for fun. She comes from such a place of entitlement it's not surprising that her closed mind would spew out this trash." So what's this all about? In recent months, the Hong Kong police force has been the center of an intense debate about police brutality, democracy, and the autonomy of Hong Kong. In June, hundreds of thousands of people in Hong Kong gathered to protest a bill that would grant criminally charged residents the possibility to be extradited from the Hong Kong city-state to mainland China. Protesters fought against the bill, arguing that it would destroy Hong Kong's autonomy that it established under the "one country, two systems" standard in 1997. Local police have since implemented increasingly aggressive tactics to dissuade protesters and clear the streets, going so far as to use tear gas in enclosed spaces and shoot rubber bullets into crowds, seriously injuring and even blinding protesters. As things have escalated, activists' focus has evolved from the proposed bill in particular to general outrage over police brutality and a fight for democracy in Hong Kong. On top of that, Variety reported that Facebook and Twitter have been forced to crackdown on what is believed to be an attempt by the Chinese government to intentionally spread misinformation about the protests on social media - using Mulan. And while social media bots spread pro-government Mulan memes, the official state-backed media have begun hyping the film as well. Complicating things even further, there's the fact that Chinese stars are sometimes forced to publicly support government policies regardless of their personal feelings. In 2018, the nation's biggest movie star, Fan Bingbing, completely vanished without a trace for six months. It was later learned that she had been placed under house arrest for failure to pay taxes on her movie earnings. Upon her release, Bingbing issued a repentant propaganda statement praising the Chinese government, which raises the question of whether Mulan star Liu posted the pro-government comments of her own free will to begin with. All of which puts Disney in a very tricky spot which would seem to make it difficult for the company to recast the role, especially since the movie has already been filmed. There is some precedent, though. In 2017, just weeks before the release of the crime thriller All the Money in the World, star Kevin Spacey was accused of numerous instances of sexual assault. Director Ridley Scott decided to remove Spacey from the film entirely, and reshot all of his scenes with Christopher Plummer in the role instead. #Mulan #Disney

Why People Are Boycotting Disney's Live-Action Mulan

 Před 23 dny

 People are calling dishonor on Disney's live-action Mulan after the star of the upcoming remake, Crystal Liu, posted on social media in support of the Hong Kong police force. Liu's admission of support of Hong Kong law enforcement, which has been under scrutiny for what human rights groups have deemed an excessive use of force against pro-democracy protesters, sparked outrage in China and caused a ripple effect around the world. Taking to Weibo, the Chinese social media site on which Liu has over 65 million followers, the actress shared an image that reads, "I support Hong Kong's police, you can all attack me now...What a shame for Hong Kong." She hashtagged the image, originally shared by the Chinese newspaper group People's Daily, #IAlsoSupportTheHongKongPolice, then added a heart emoji. Less than 24 hours after Liu posted the photo, it amassed over 72,000 likes and was shared over 65,000 times. Backlash has been just as swift, though. The hashtag #BoycottMulan has taken over Twitter and Instagram in the time since Liu's post, with the tag feed filling up with dozens of posts per hour. One user on Twitter wrote, "Support Liu's Mulan = Support Police's Abuse of Power. The spirit of Mulan is about bravery, not fighting the citizens with unlimited force." Another user went viral with his #BoycottMulan tweet that reads, "Disney's Mulan actress, Liu Yifei, supports police brutality and oppression in Hong Kong. Liu is a naturalized American citizen. it must be nice. meanwhile she pisses on people fighting for democracy. retweet please. HK doesn't get enough support. #BoycottMulan @Disney."

Tom Holland's Father Weighs In On Spider-Man Leaving The MCU

 Heartbroken Spider-Man fans have received a little fatherly wisdom to help ease the pain. Dominic Holland, comedian, author, and father of Spidey actor Tom Holland, recently took to his blog to offer up his thoughtful take on the prospect of the beloved character potentially exiting the Marvel Cinematic Universe following an impasse between Marvel Studios and rights holder Sony Pictures. The elder Holland reminded fans in his August 21st post that they likely haven't seen the last of his son's Spidey, and that in the end, the factor which likely precipitated the split will be the same one that ensures that their favorite hero returns to the screen: money. Holland explained that he'd been asked for his take on the situation by multiple media outlets, but had politely declined. For his blog's readers, however, he felt compelled to comment, and he betrayed just a touch of scorn for the big Hollywood power players who had failed to get a new deal done for the fans, writing, "I have no inside track on such issues. But whatever is decided by the big suits at these big Hollywood studios my hunch is that the show will continue. Too much at stake and too many dollars riding on it and besides, everyone wants the same thing; namely, Spider-Man on large screens keeping people safe and entertained. And with Tom in the suit, for the time-being at least. And in the years ahead, no doubt, with another lucky young actor in the role." Just a day later, the self-described "friendly, neighborhood father of Tom Holland" felt the need to clarify his statement due to the deluge of headlines which followed his initial post. He wrote that he held no animosity towards either party, and he appeared slightly irked at the possibility that such misrepresentations of his comments could reflect poorly on his son, writing, "As I said in the post… 'I know nothing' and my only speculation remains, that Spider-Man will go on saving people and keeping us all entertained. In fact, Tom Holland's dad has not even spoken with Tom Holland since this seismic story broke and he certainly is not taking any sides, he is not calling for any boycotts and he will not be storming any offices anytime soon. These headlines are just click bait. A salacious headline to create website traffic."

Stan Lee’s Daughter Has Harsh Words For Disney After Spidey Loss

 Joan Celia Lee, who often goes by JC Lee, the daughter of the late, great Marvel mastermind Stan Lee, had some biting words for Marvel Studios parent company Disney after it failed to reach an agreement with Sony Pictures to keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Lee spoke with TMZ about the situation, and it's clear that she's not happy over what she perceives to be a Disney power play to score full control of Marvel Comics' flagship character, whom Stan Lee co-created with Steve Ditko, and for whom Sony has long held the film rights. She said: "Marvel and Disney seeking total control of my father's creations must be checked and balanced by others who, while still seeking to profit, have genuine respect for Stan Lee and his legacy. Whether it's Sony or someone else's, the continued evolution of Stan's characters and his legacy deserves multiple points of view." Lee then went from implying Marvel Studios did not have respect for Stan the Man's legacy to outright stating it. "When my father died, no one from Marvel or Disney reached out to me. From day one, they have commoditized my father's work and never shown him or his legacy any respect or decency… In the end, no one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney's executives." That's a brutal assessment, and, frankly, confusing, considering that Stan Lee made cameos in every single Marvel Studios film up until his death. Publicly, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has never shown anything but respect for Lee and his legacy. After the icon's death last year, Feige said in a statement, "He was very special, and I've always said, anybody who met Stan…I've never heard one story of somebody meeting Stan and not being overwhelmed with excitement. He never disappointed, and I was lucky enough to see him about 10 days before he passed away… it doesn't seem like he's gone. Because just like with Walt Disney on this lot, his influence will never go away." JC Lee's comments came the same week as a Sony Pictures statement which painted the decision to axe the wall-crawler from the MCU as one which ultimately was made by Marvel. It read: "We are disappointed, but respect Disney's decision not to have [Feige] continue as a lead producer of our next live-action Spider-Man film. We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him - including all their newly added Marvel properties - do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own," Keep watching the video to see Stan Lee’s daughter has harsh words for Disney after Spidey loss! #SonySpiderverse #Spiderman #StanLee

The Biggest Questions We Want Answered In The Matrix 4

 It's been 20 years since The Matrix changed genre cinema forever. And now, Lana Wachowski, Keanu Reeves, and Carrie-Anne Moss are returning for a fourth film. So we’re taking a look at some of the biggest questions we want answered in The Matrix 4. Now that we know Keanu Reeves is returning for more of The Matrix, the big question is how his character, Neo, comes back after his apparent death in The Matrix Revolutions. The Oracle suggests we might see him again at the end of the last film, but his body is carried away by the Machines after he defeats Agent Smith and reboots the Matrix. There are a number of ways the film could explain Neo's return, the most obvious of which is by telling us he didn't really die after all, and that the Machines ultimately nursed him back to health. Then there's the explanation that because of his status as "the One," Neo was always at least partially a software creation, the product of programming mixing with biology. Perhaps the software in him survived and reincarnated into the new Matrix. Whatever the case, we can't wait to see how we get him back. Watch the video for more of The Biggest Questions We Want Answered In The Matrix 4! #TheMatrix #TheMatrix4 How will Neo return? | 0:14 How will Trinity come back to life? | 1:07 Where's Morpheus? | 1:54 What about the rogue programs? | 2:42 What's the deal with Seraph? | 3:27 Has peace been maintained? | 4:20 Have the Machines adapted? | 5:22 How will humanity choose? | 5:56

Jeremy Renner Has A Strong Message For Sony About Spider-Man

 Look out, Sony. Hawkeye is taking aim at you - and he never misses. On August 20, Hollywood was rocked when reports surfaced that Sony and Disney couldn't come to terms on a new agreement to keep Tom Holland's Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unless the circumstances change dramatically, it looks like the 23-year-old Holland is done showing up in MCU movies after five appearances over the past three years, beginning with 2016's Captain America: Civil War and ending with 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home. The vast majority of people involved - including Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Holland himself - have kept quiet so far on the bombshell news, but one of the Avengers has spoken out. Jeremy Renner has played Clint Barton, also known as Hawkeye, in the MCU for eight years since first appearing in 2011's Thor, took to Instagram on August 21 to vent his feelings on the controversial subject. He uploaded a still of himself in Avengers: Endgame with a caption that reads, "Hey sonypictures we want Spider-Man back to therealstanlee and marvel please, thank you congrats spidermanrocks, bow and arrow, please." Poor grammar and odd hashtagging aside, it's clear that Renner is clamoring for a new Spidey deal, and that he falls on the Disney side of the dividing line. Renner has many irons in the fire - including starring in major Hollywood films, launching a musical career, and appearing in some slightly strange Jeep commercials - but it's obvious that Disney and Marvel offer the actor his steadiest gig. The man knows how hard it can be to find work in Hollywood, having been a makeup artist early in his career to make ends meet at a time where he couldn't find casting anywhere.

We Now Know Why Scarlet Witch And Vision Were Defeated So Easily

 The Battle of Wakanda in ​Avengers: Infinity War was an event that will reverberate throughout the MCU for years, and in one of its climactic moments, two of the Avengers'​ biggest guns failed to come through. Fans have wondered ever since: how did Thanos defeat Vision and Scarlet Witch so easily? The question was answered by Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo during a Twitter Q&A they conducted for Wired's Tech Support series. Essentially, they, along with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, knew that the pair would have to be hobbled if Thanos were to achieve his victory. Vision's injury early on in the film was the circumstance which allowed the Mad Titan to narrowly avoid a whipping at the hands of the two heroes. He went on to say that Vision even becomes, quote, "a liability in the fight," putting Scarlet Witch at a disadvantage since she has to protect him. Joe added that with Wanda and Vision cornered, it takes the combined might of Captain America, Falcon and Black Widow to get them out of the jam. Apparently, that early battle weakened Vision enough that Wanda was forced to destroy the Mind Stone mounted in Vision's forehead to stop Thanos. Of course, that only stopped Thanos for a moment, since the Mad Titan used the Time Stone to undo her action, and ripped the Mind Stone from Vision's head himself, killing him yet again. With the final piece of the Infinity Gauntlet in place, Thanos unleashed the snap heard 'round the universe, reducing Wanda and a slew of other heroes to dust. The Russo brothers previously clarified shortly after Infinity War's release that, since they knew that the Mind Stone-powered Vision would be a primary target of Thanos and his Black Order, it was necessary to render him vulnerable. It just so happened that Glaive's attack on Vision might have been the deciding factor in the Mad Titan's ultimate victory. Fortunately, as we all know, Thanos' victory was eventually reversed during the events of Endgame by a Stark Gauntlet-wielding Bruce Banner after the Avengers' successful mission through time. Scarlet Witch, along with all of the other dusted heroes, was revived, but Vision was not, since he didn't die from the first snap.

Ryan Reynolds Reacts To Spider-Man Leaving The MCU

 Superheroes stick together. In the aftermath of Sony and Disney failing to come to an agreement to renegotiate terms of its deal that allowed Tom Holland's Spider-Man to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds came forward to address the situation. Reynolds' response to Spider-Man swinging out of the MCU was witty as all get-out - which is to be expected when dealing with the actor whose tongue is firmly planted in his cheek - but it sadly offered fans little comfort in this tumultuous time. Twitter user @ChaoticKing_ was one of many fans who turned to Reynolds to help save Spider-Man, or at least give them a bit of solace after having their Spidey-loving hearts shattered. Clearly hoping for a silver lining in all the darkness, @ChaoticKing_ asked Reynolds on Twitter whether Spider-Man's MCU exit could eventually result in a team-up movie with Spider-Man and Deadpool. Reynolds gave a half-humorous, half-heartbreaking response: "You can. But you can only see it in my heart." If fans weren't sufficiently devastated over the news that Holland's web-slinging vigilante won't be able to play on the Marvel Studios playground anymore, Reynolds' tweet absolutely crushed them. One fan tweeted at Reynolds, "That's literally not the response we wanted. We wanted a yes. A big, fat yes. Please and thank you." Another fan begged the actor, "Ryan pls help us." Clearly, sorrowful Spider-Man fans are placing a lot of stock in Reynolds' ability to either roll up his sleeves and duke it out with Sony executives himself, or do some sort of behind-the-scenes string-pulling to get Spider-Man back into Marvel's movie realm. As much as we love Reynolds - and as cool as it would be to see his raunchy, hard-R-rated superhero film series collide with Spider-Man's world - it's strange that so many people are wanting him to do something about the Sony-Disney split. Granted, Deadpool is a Marvel Comics character that Marvel Studios hasn't yet been able to use in the MCU due to rights restrictions - which is a fate that Spider-Man had suffered up until 2015, when Disney and Sony struck a deal to let Holland's hero character appear in Marvel movies while Sony retained financial, distribution, and creative control. But there's a lot more at play here, and there's basically nothing that Reynolds can do to change things. While Reynolds is one of a few actors who can commiserate with Holland about playing a Marvel character that isn't allowed in the MCU, there's a high probability that Reynolds' Deadpool actually will join the MCU in the future. After Disney bought the majority of 20th Century Fox's assets in a $71.3 billion deal earlier this year, the House of Mouse acquired a bunch of Marvel Comics characters whose screen rights resided at Fox. Deadpool is one of them - and while nothing has been confirmed by the way of a third Deadpool movie or Wade Wilson's forthcoming inclusion in the MCU, it seems fairly inevitable. The Merc with a Mouth made big money at the box office and has helped revolutionize the superhero genre - sparking studio executives to consider giving darker, grittier, and more violent characters their own franchises. Plainly put, Disney and Marvel would be fools not to induct Deadpool into the MCU. Regardless if that ends up happening, and even if Reynolds never slips back into the red-and-black suit for another Deadpool movie, Deadpool is property of Marvel Studios. Spider-Man isn't. And now that Sony and Disney have done the corporate equivalent of filing for divorce, it's virtually impossible for a Deadpool-Spider-Man team-up movie to happen. Reynolds may have a ton of clout in Hollywood and an unmatched presence on social media, but one thing he doesn't have is the power to squash the beef between two of the biggest entertainment companies in the world. Wish as we might that it wasn't so, Peter Parker and Wade Wilson probably won't ever meet. Like Reynolds, fans will simply have to keep that dream alive in their hearts. #RyanReynolds #SpiderMan #MCU

One fan tweeted at Reynolds, "That's literally not the response we wanted. We wanted a yes. A big, fat yes. Please and thank you." Another fan begged the actor, "Ryan pls help us." Clearly, sorrowful Spider-Man fans are placing a lot of stock in Reynolds' ability to either roll up his sleeves and duke it out with Sony executives himself, or do some sort of behind-the-scenes string-pulling to get Spider-Man back into Marvel's movie realm. As much as we love Reynolds - and as cool as it would be to see his raunchy, hard-R-rated superhero film series collide with Spider-Man's world - it's strange that so many people are wanting him to do something about the Sony-Disney split. Granted, Deadpool is a Marvel Comics character that Marvel Studios hasn't yet been able to use in the MCU due to rights restrictions - which is a fate that Spider-Man had suffered up until 2015, when Disney and Sony struck a deal to let Holland's hero character appear in Marvel movies while Sony retained financial, distribution, and creative control. But there's a lot more at play here, and there's basically nothing that Reynolds can do to change things. While Reynolds is one of a few actors who can commiserate with Holland about playing a Marvel character that isn't allowed in the MCU, there's a high probability that Reynolds' Deadpool actually will join the MCU in the future. After Disney bought the majority of 20th Century Fox's assets in a $71.3 billion deal earlier this year, the House of Mouse acquired a bunch of Marvel Comics characters whose screen rights resided at Fox. Deadpool is one of them - and while nothing has been confirmed by the way of a third Deadpool movie or Wade Wilson's forthcoming inclusion in the MCU, it seems fairly inevitable. The Merc with a Mouth made big money at the box office and has helped revolutionize the superhero genre - sparking studio executives to consider giving darker, grittier, and more violent characters their own franchises. Plainly put, Disney and Marvel would be fools not to induct Deadpool into the MCU. Regardless if that ends up happening, and even if Reynolds never slips back into the red-and-black suit for another Deadpool movie, Deadpool is property of Marvel Studios. Spider-Man isn't. And now that Sony and Disney have done the corporate equivalent of filing for divorce, it's virtually impossible for a Deadpool-Spider-Man team-up movie to happen. Reynolds may have a ton of clout in Hollywood and an unmatched presence on social media, but one thing he doesn't have is the power to squash the beef between two of the biggest entertainment companies in the world. Wish as we might that it wasn't so, Peter Parker and Wade Wilson probably won't ever meet. Like Reynolds, fans will simply have to keep that dream alive in their hearts. #RyanReynolds #SpiderMan #MCU

Watch This Before You See American Horror Story 1984

 '80s nostalgia is in the air, so no wonder the ninth season of American Horror Story is taking place smack dab in the middle of that decade. But how will AHS 1984 fit into the show's ever-expanding canon? Here's everything we know so far. Leave it to AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy to blend '80s camp with the menacing undertones of a slasher film - and all set to the kicky tune of Dan Hartman's "I Can Dream About You." Back in July 2019, Murphy made the official cast announcement on Instagram through a series of stylish videos staged to look like "camera tests." As you can see, everyone is decked out in their most ill-advised '80s fashions. Hard to say whether this is what the cast will actually look like throughout the coming season. They could just be toying with our expectations here. Meanwhile, the official teaser trailers heavily draw from slasher-film archetypes and scenarios. In one teaser, we see a truck full of youngsters on their way to Camp Redwood. They're partying so hard they fail to see the word "BEWARE" scrawled in red paint on the back of the "Camp Redwood" sign. Meanwhile, a masked man with a knife is hiding in the undercarriage. This guy really gets around: He later jumps out of a lake in order to stab a bikini-clad woman - basically a straight-up homage to the first Friday the 13th. In another teaser, a young woman is chased through the dark woods. She hides in a cabin, and soon enough, a knife comes through the door. Yet another teaser features a group of camp counselors settling into their bunks. And when the cabin door closes? As with previous seasons of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy has assembled a mix of new and returning cast members to play all-new characters, this time in 1984. Returning stars include Cody Fern, Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, Leslie Grossman, and a decidedly creepy John Carroll Lynch. We're particularly loving Cody Fern as an '80s-style preppy dude... especially since he looks a bit like James Spader in Pretty in Pink.

What The Critics Are Saying About It: Chapter Two

 It: Chapter Two has been screened for select critics, and while there's still an embargo on formal reviews, many of them have taken to Twitter to give their hot takes. So far, reactions are mixed, but most observers agreed on two things: the film is wildly ambitious, and features an amazing performance from Bill Hader. The movie and its predecessor, 2017's smash hit It: Chapter One, are adapted from Stephen King's masterful 1986 novel. The first film followed a group of young outcasts who dub themselves "The Losers' Club" facing off with an ancient, shape-shifting, evil entity appearing most often in the guise of Pennywise, the Dancing Clown. It: Chapter Two focuses on the Losers' Club as successful adults who are all called back to the small town of Derry, Maine, when "It" emerges from Its slumber eager for a rematch. Initial critical reactions mostly praised the flick's ambition in tackling one of King's most dense, challenging works, and largely pulling it off. One Collider horror editor wrote, "[IT Chapter Two] is big and ambitious and can't quite handle the weight of its aspirations, but it's still a fine piece of heartfelt horror. The parts that work, work REALLY well and Bill Hader is every-bit the scene-stealing standout we all hoped he'd be." Hader - who plays the motor-mouthed Richie, portrayed as a child by Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard - was the cast member most consistently singled out for praise. The Saturday Night Live alum and star of the HBO's dark comedy series Barry has never taken on a role in a horror project before, and by all accounts, he absolutely kills it in this one. Fandango managing editor Erik Davis was also among the chorus of voices singing Hader's praises, writing in part, "[IT Chapter Two] plays heavier in tone, dealing [with] defeating the burden of childhood trauma, [and] I definitely teared up at the very end. Bill Hader steals it." Even those critics who weren't particularly impressed with the film were quick to lavish praise on Hader, with CinemaBlend's Sean O'Connell offering up pretty much the highest compliment that could be paid. He wrote, "So, [IT Chapter Two]: it's [very] good, but not great. I liked it, but didn't LOVE it. First movie is a tough act to follow. TWO is gruesome, strange but rarely scary. Nails important aspects from the book, but feels overlong. Cast is aces, though, [and] Bill Hader SHOULD be in Oscar convo."

The Real Reason Laurence Fishburne May Not Return As Morpheus In The Matrix 4

 The world is about to plug back into the Matrix, but will Laurence Fishburne be on the other side this time around? Warner Bros. dropped a bombshell on August 20 when it announced that filmmaker Lana Wachowski - one half of the directorial duo behind the original Matrix trilogy - is set to write and direct the long-awaited fourth Matrix film. Keanu Reeves will reprise his role as Neo, and his co-star Carrie-Anne Moss is confirmed to step back into her role as Nebuchadnezzar crew member and Neo's love interest Trinity. That news break came as a welcome surprise, and it seemed that The Matrix 4 would be one big Matrix family reunion. The only problem? There was no mention of Laurence Fishburne's involvement in the film. Fishburne starred opposite Reeves and Moss in all three Matrix movies, playing Morpheus, the Nebuchadnezzar captain who recruited Neo to aid in the fight to break humanity free from the virtual reality known as the Matrix. Considering Morpheus, Neo, and Trinity are the core trio of the Matrix franchise, and given that Reeves and Moss are locked in for The Matrix 4, you'd assume that Fishburne would also come back for the upcoming film. However, that might not end up happening. According to Variety's Justin Kroll, Fishburne may not return because the film might not include his character at his current age. The Matrix 4 will reportedly feature a younger version of Morpheus, and Warner Bros. is said to be on the hunt for the perfect person for the gig. Shortly after the initial news broke, Kroll wrote on Twitter: "If you've asked yourself, 'Where's [Morpheus],' sources have told me this may point to where and when the film is set as I've heard execs are looking at a variety of actors to possibly play 'young [Morpheus].' Stay tuned on that front…" Now, just because Warner Bros. is apparently in an active search for the right person to portray a fresh-faced version of everyone's favorite freedom fighter doesn't completely rule out the possibility that Fishburne will appear in The Matrix 4. Someone new to the Matrix franchise might step up and portray young Morpheus, with Fishburne still appearing as the regular-aged version of himself. Anything can happen in in the Matrix. Perhaps Warner Bros. knows exactly what it's doing here, and is purposefully holding out on announcing Fishburne's inclusion to build additional buzz around the new Matrix. The studio already hit us with huge news when it confirmed that the project was happening. Maybe Warner Bros. brass doesn't want to give franchise fans everything all at once, and is holding onto the juicy tidbit that is Fishburne's potential involvement until a later date. On that note, there's also the chance that Warner Bros. is still negotiating with Fishburne about returning as Morpheus. It isn't every day that an actor learns that the franchise they last appeared in 16 years ago is getting another installment, and Fishburne could very well be conflicted about the idea of being a part of the new movie. He has remained incredibly busy in the time since The Matrix Revolutions debuted in 2003 - appearing in films like Mission: Impossible III, Days of Wrath, Predators, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and two of the John Wick films. Fishburne has also found success on the small screen in his post-Matrix life, playing Dr. Raymond Langston on a handful of CSI series, Jack Crawford on Hannibal, and Earl "Pops" Johnson on Black-ish and Grown-ish. Clearly, the guy has been doing pretty well for himself over the years. This considered, it's plausible that Fishburne is completely satisfied with his professional life and may not be interested in reprising his Matrix role that he hung up so many years ago. It's a mystery for now whether Fishburne will be involved in The Matrix 4, but for our part, we're holding out hope that we'll get to hear him say a few iconic lines at least one more time. #TheMatrix4 #LaurenceFishburne #Movies

Twitter Reacts To Spider-Man Leaving The MCU

 The day Sony Pictures, Disney, and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man deal came to an end is one that will live on in infamy. The news was and remains a huge deal. Since Sony and Disney, the parent company of Marvel Studios, were unable to renegotiate the terms of their original 2015 deal that saw Marvel producing Spider-Man movies with Sony retaining ownership, Tom Holland's Spider-Man is out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, potentially for good. Fans the world over were shocked upon hearing the news, and it's no exaggeration to say that the response to Spider-Man leaving the MCU has been emotional. Pop culture junkie, comic book enthusiast, and filmmaker Kevin Smith took to Twitter to beg Sony to agree to Disney's terms and keep Spider-Man in the MCU: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Just stop it! Please, @SonyPictures - give @Disney what they want and many millions of us will keep giving you our money!" Smith's tweet was in reference to the reports that Disney requested a 50 percent co-financing share in the Spider-Man film franchise, and asked to retain producing status on future films, credited to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Sony is said to have flat-out refused the proposition, as there was evidently no way the studio would be comfortable with increasing Marvel's current five percent cut of the franchise's first-day profits to a 50 percent stake. On that note, Uproxx senior entertainment writer Mike Ryan argued that Sony is in the right for walking away, as it would be unreasonable to expect the studio to bump up Disney's share from five percent to 50 percent. Ryan posted on Twitter, "People seem to be mad at Sony for Spider-Man and the MCU separating? If you read the Deadline piece it sounds like Disney raised its price from 5 percent to 50 percent, which is a lot! It's not insane Sony didn't agree to that." "I'll pay you the usual rate." Ryan wasn't the only one who felt this way. Marvel fan @AhmedMansoor_ tweeted that Sony was smart not to bend to Disney's whims, given that the studio's Spidey franchise has been flourishing as of late. Spider-Man: Far From Home recently became Sony's highest-earning film of all time, its 2018 animated flick Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an Academy Award-winner, and its Venom franchise kicked off with an impressive $856 million worldwide pull, which recently motivated Sony to greenlight a sequel with director Andy Serkis. The user wrote, "It all sums up to money and greed. I mean, did Disney really think that Sony would let them share 50/50 in revenue? 10/90 max maybe? It just became their highest-grossing movie of the all-time. With Venom & Into the spiderverse proceeds it's their gold mine now." The Twitter account for Fandom.com joked that Feige must have had the same conversation with Disney CEO Bob Iger that Tony Stark had with Steve Rogers at the start of Avengers: Endgame. In the film, Tony told Steve that he "lost the kid," referring to the fact that Peter Parker got dusted in Thanos' Avengers: Infinity War snap and there was nothing Tony could do to save him. Though Disney apparently did try to keep Holland's Spider-Man in the MCU, Sony pulled him into its web in the end. "I don't wanna go…" On the subject of comparing Sony to Thanos, many feel the studio has a lot in common with the intergalactic tyrant for not continuing to negotiate with Disney and Marvel. Countless others are concerned that Spider-Man's exit from the MCU means that the hero's relationship with Tony Stark, not to mention the ending of Far From Home, won't be followed up on. One user wrote on Twitter, "How does Sony not understand that they can't just erase EVERYTHING that has happened in endgame? What do they think they're Thanos now?! Snap and you can just erase spidey from existence and everything he's been through with Tony??!! NOPE #SaveSpiderMan." Another added, "So Sony has replaced Thanos as the primary villain of the MCU?" Many other fans, like Twitter user @BOSSKyJo, all but shouted their outrage. As that user put it, "TONY STARK DIDNT DIE TO SAVE PETER PARKER FOR SONY TO TAKE HIM OUT OF THE MCU! #SaveSpiderMan." One fan expressed hope for some kind of agreement to be reached in the future, directly addressing Sony on Twitter with a post that reads, "I respectfully request that you return to the negotiating table and make a new deal that will please us, the fans." For our part, the only hope we have for Sony's two forthcoming Spider-Man movies is that whatever they do, they just don't make us watch Uncle Ben die again.

Sony Breaks Silence On Spider-Man Split With Marvel

 Shots have been fired… or maybe, webs have been slung? Marvel fans had their worst fears realized on August 20th, when it came to light that Disney and Sony couldn't come to an agreement to keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in upcoming releases. After Sony-produced films like 2007's Spider-Man 3 and 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to truly capture the essence of the web-slinger, and in light of just how popular and successful Spider-Man has been in the MCU, fans have been quick to denounce the decision. Once the story went public, Sony wasted little time in issuing its response and - surprise, surprise - they are placing the blame on Disney. The spokesperson stated: "We are disappointed, but respect Disney's decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live-action Spider-Man film. We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him - including all their newly added Marvel properties - do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own." Apparently, the fallout between the two companies came after Disney suggested it deserved more of the profit from future Spider-Man movies, requesting the standing five percent day-one box office cut to be increased to a 50 percent co-financing stake in the franchise. Obviously, Sony turned that down, wanting the current deal - in which Disney also receives all merchandising revenue - to continue instead. To be fair to Sony, Feige does seem to have more on his plate than ever before. With the Mouse House launching its streaming platform Disney+ at the end of the year, the head of Marvel Studios is hard at work making sure the numerous superhero offerings that are coming to the platform are up to snuff - not to mention ensuring the success of the various Phase 4 films that are in the works as well. And with the surprisingly massive box office of Venom and the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Sony is in a much stronger place with its comic book franchise than it was back when the original deal was struck with Disney in 2015. Sony has had the film rights to Spider-Man since 1999, back when Marvel Comics was doing its best to recover from bankruptcy and resorted to licensing many of its most popular characters to film studios just to stay afloat. Times have changed for both companies, and Sony is evidently standing its ground in a major way. For his part, Tom Holland - who has played Marvel's wall-crawler in five films since first appearing in 2016's Captain America: Civil War - is contracted to appear as Spider-Man in two more standalone movies for Sony. Of course, Spider-Man solo pictures are not the only thing Sony Pictures has going on right now, as the studio is looking to create its own successful franchise of Marvel-based films after Venom did gangbusters at the box office. Previously announced films that are in pre-production at the studio include an Andy Serkis-directed Venom sequel and a pic starring Jared Leto as classic Marvel antihero Morbius the Living Vampire. The studio also hasn't been shy about other possible projects to expand its Spider-Man universe. In an interview with Vanity Fair in late 2018, then-series producer Amy Pascal mentioned that Sony was interested in reviving the previously shelved Sinister Six film based on the iconic group of Spider-Man villains. In light of all this news, many questions remain. Can Holland's Peter Parker leave one cinematic universe merely to join another? Are fans of the MCU ready and willing to support Spider-Man outside of Feige's steady and knowledgeable hands? The last truly successful non-animated Spider-Man film Sony produced came over 15 years ago with Sam Raimi's iconic 2004 picture Spider-Man 2. That's an eternity in Hollywood time, but it's possible that time has given Sony perspective and that the studio could put together a team that creates a remarkable piece of filmmaking that blows the box office apart. One thing's for sure: given that superhero films are largely a surefire box office draw in Tinseltown, Spider-Man leaving the MCU is a major shift with billion-dollar implications. It doesn't look like either studio is going to budge on this decision, unfortunately, so fans are going to have to get used to a reality where Peter Parker isn't carrying on the legacy of Tony Stark after all. #SpiderMan #Sony #Marvel

Sony Breaks Silence On Spider-Man Split With Marvel

 Před 25 dny

 Shots have been fired… or maybe, webs have been slung? Marvel fans had their worst fears realized on August 20th, when it came to light that Disney and Sony couldn't come to an agreement to keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in upcoming releases. After Sony-produced films like 2007's Spider-Man 3 and 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to truly capture the essence of the web-slinger, and in light of just how popular and successful Spider-Man has been in the MCU, fans have been quick to denounce the decision. Once the story went public, Sony wasted little time in issuing its response and - surprise, surprise - they are placing the blame on Disney. The spokesperson stated: "We are disappointed, but respect Disney's decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live-action Spider-Man film. We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him - including all their newly added Marvel properties - do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own." Apparently, the fallout between the two companies came after Disney suggested it deserved more of the profit from future Spider-Man movies, requesting the standing five percent day-one box office cut to be increased to a 50 percent co-financing stake in the franchise. Obviously, Sony turned that down, wanting the current deal - in which Disney also receives all merchandising revenue - to continue instead. To be fair to Sony, Feige does seem to have more on his plate than ever before. With the Mouse House launching its streaming platform Disney+ at the end of the year, the head of Marvel Studios is hard at work making sure the numerous superhero offerings that are coming to the platform are up to snuff - not to mention ensuring the success of the various Phase 4 films that are in the works as well. And with the surprisingly massive box office of Venom and the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Sony is in a much stronger place with its comic book franchise than it was back when the original deal was struck with Disney in 2015. Sony has had the film rights to Spider-Man since 1999, back when Marvel Comics was doing its best to recover from bankruptcy and resorted to licensing many of its most popular characters to film studios just to stay afloat. Times have changed for both companies, and Sony is evidently standing its ground in a major way. For his part, Tom Holland - who has played Marvel's wall-crawler in five films since first appearing in 2016's Captain America: Civil War - is contracted to appear as Spider-Man in two more standalone movies for Sony. Of course, Spider-Man solo pictures are not the only thing Sony Pictures has going on right now, as the studio is looking to create its own successful franchise of Marvel-based films after Venom did gangbusters at the box office. Previously announced films that are in pre-production at the studio include an Andy Serkis-directed Venom sequel and a pic starring Jared Leto as classic Marvel antihero Morbius the Living Vampire. The studio also hasn't been shy about other possible projects to expand its Spider-Man universe. In an interview with Vanity Fair in late 2018, then-series producer Amy Pascal mentioned that Sony was interested in reviving the previously shelved Sinister Six film based on the iconic group of Spider-Man villains. In light of all this news, many questions remain. Can Holland's Peter Parker leave one cinematic universe merely to join another? Are fans of the MCU ready and willing to support Spider-Man outside of Feige's steady and knowledgeable hands? The last truly successful non-animated Spider-Man film Sony produced came over 15 years ago with Sam Raimi's iconic 2004 picture Spider-Man 2. That's an eternity in Hollywood time, but it's possible that time has given Sony perspective and that the studio could put together a team that creates a remarkable piece of filmmaking that blows the box office apart.

The Matrix 4 Details Revealed

 In 1999, a daringly original sci-fi film became the must-see hit of the year and launched one of the most successful trilogies of all time. No, not Episode I - we're talking about The Matrix. Now, two decades later, another sequel is on the way. So grab a spoon, pick a pill, and find out everything there is to know about The Matrix 4. Though no release date has yet been revealed, we have some pretty good guesses. Variety reported that the new Matrix film is scheduled to begin filming in early 2020. Considering how long it takes to film, edit, and create digital effects for a movie like The Matrix, the release date likely won't be until the summer or fall of 2021. That would be in keeping with tradition. The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded hit theaters in late March 1999 and mid-May 2003, respectively, while The Matrix Revolutions, shot immediately after Reloaded, made its way to theaters just six months later in November 2003 so as to not keep fans waiting for the trilogy's conclusion. Keanu Reeves, actor, officially became Keanu Reeves, legend, thanks to his turn as Neo in The Matrix. For most fans, if there's no Neo, there's no point to a new Matrix film. Well, don't worry, because Reeves is reportedly signed on for The Matrix 4. And he'll also be joined by co-star Carrie Anne-Moss, who became a Hollywood sensation as Trinity. So far, though, there's no word regarding the return of other Matrix stars like Hugo Weaving, Laurence Fishburne, or Jada-Pinkett-Smith. For now, we'll just have to wait and see.

The Absolute Worst Movies Of 2019 So Far

 It almost seems to be an unwritten Hollywood rule that for every amazing, well-crafted piece of cinema released in any given year, there must be at least one completely misguided, poorly executed, lazily written slog of a film. 2019 is no exception - and these are the worst movies of the bunch. Keanu Reeves is as in demand as ever, and has even cemented his action star bona fides relatively late in his career thanks to the John Wick series. Over the years, he's only appeared in a handful of sci-fi features, so we were psyched to see his return to the world of trippy sci-fi weirdness with Replicas. Then the reviews started to come in. According to critics, the film was a complete mess, plagued by a clumsy script written in service of an absurd storyline. Even worse for an action star of Reeves' caliber, it also featured unexciting action sequences and plot holes you could drive a semi through. The Guardian's Charles Bramesco offered up a Roger Ebert-esque review that took everyone but Reeves to task: "If only anyone else involved could muster a fraction of the consummate professionalism that Reeves brings to his dead-serious intonation of the word 'algorithm,' this DOA science project might have had a pulse."

Netflix Movies To Watch Before It's Too Late

 It can be tough to figure out what to stream next in Netflix's vast library, but don't worry. From incredible underrated gems to timeless favorites that you haven't thought about in years, we've rounded up the best movies on Netflix right now. After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 effectively killed a franchise as we knew it, it came as a bit of a shock when Sony Pictures announced that they'd be moving forward with their own new Spider-Man project after agreeing sharing the web-slinger with Marvel Studios. That task seemed all the more daunting when Spider-Man: Homecoming arrived like the John Hughes Spider-flick we didn't know we needed. Then came Sony's animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which proved that the movie multi-verse was big enough for more than one Spider-Man not to mention a Spider-Gwen, a Spider-Ham, and a giant anime robot from the future. Into the Spider-Verse breathed a welcome life into both the rapidly tiring superhero genre and the stagnating medium of feature animation. That life arrived via Miles Morales, who seeks to replace the recently deceased Spider-Man of his world, only to discover that there are several Spider-Folk spread across multiple dimensions, and that a singular threat is about to disrupt each of their realities. The story, chock full of equal parts drama, comedy, and heartfelt soul, unfolds in an electrifying visual style designed to literally bring comic book pages to life. That hearty combination of style and substance makes Into the Spider-Verse unlike any other superhero flick out there. It's easy to forget, but prior to 2005's Batman Begins, there wasn't a ton of support behind making a new Batman flick. That had a lot to do with the sour taste Joel Schumacher's shamelessly indulgent camp-fest Batman and Robin left in the mouths of Bat-fans the world over. So when a then-relatively-unknown Christopher Nolan signed up to bring the Dark Knight's big screen saga back to its former glory, it definitely raised a few eyebrows. When Batman Begins finally hit theaters in the summer of '05, those eyebrows went from warily raised to wide-eyed with glee almost overnight. Rather than the neon-drenched visuals and over-the-top puns, this was the Batman film so many fans had been waiting for a gritty, action-packed character drama about a troubled young man embracing his inner heart of darkness in the wake of witnessing his parent's demise.

The Sad Reason Spider-Man Will Be Cut From The MCU

 Peter Parker continues to have bad luck with his parents. While his real mom and dad are long gone, Spider-Man's real-world guardians Disney and Sony have been disputing over how best to look after him. The web-flinging vigilante is a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to two Tom Holland-starring films - 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home. He's also made a handful of appearances in the MCU's ensemble movies - but he's always remained the property of Sony Pictures. For months now, Disney, Marvel Studios, and Sony have been in talks over how to split financial stakes in the Spider-Man franchise as they worked to update the shared custody deal they struck in 2015. That landmark agreement allowed Marvel to have access to the Spider-Man character while Sony retained ownership. The stand-off reportedly ended on August 20, when, according to Deadline, the two companies failed to reach an agreement. The inability to strike new terms in a deal, which would have seen Disney obtaining a co-financing stake in the property, means that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will no longer produce Spider-Man films. Furthermore, Marvel will cease any involvement in the Holland-starring Spidey universe moving forward - meaning that Spider-Man is swinging away from the MCU and crawling back into Sony's web. Deadline's sources indicated that the talks ended because of a disagreement over money. Disney is said to have requested a 50 percent co-financing stake in future Spider-Man films - of which there are reportedly two, anticipated to feature both actor Tom Holland, and Jon Watts returning in the director's chair. The talks also involved Disney potentially extending that stake into other Spider-Man-adjacent films, like the growing Venom franchise. A 50 percent stake is a hefty increase from Marvel Studios' current share of the Spider-Man movie series, which is "five percent of first dollar gross" - or the money that a film makes during its first day out in theaters. Sony wanted to keep that deal intact, Disney didn't, and so Disney came forward with its own proposition. As Deadline's Mike Fleming Jr. put it, Sony executives, quote, "turned that offer down flat" - apparently not even approaching Disney with a counteroffer. According to the report, the studio had no interest in splitting ownership over what has become its most commercially successful franchise. It's probably not a coincidence that just a day before this news broke, Spider-Man: Far From Home officially edged out Skyfall to become Sony's highest-earning movie ever. Kevin Feige, a big fan of Spider-Man, reportedly had every intention of continuing to produce movies featuring the teen hero if Disney and Sony were able to renegotiate terms. Sony is clearly confident that the franchise has a bright future ahead without Feige or Marvel Studios involved in producing it. In addition to the now Sony-controlled Spider-Man sequels, the studio is confirmed to be working on a sequel to Venom directed by Andy Serkis, a Morbius: The Living Vampire movie starring Jared Leto, and a film centered on Kraven the Hunter. According to Deadline, they're also still working on that Black Cat/Silver Sable thing they've been trying to get made forever. The big question surrounding this news is how it will affect the MCU, which has heavily featured Spider-Man in its overarching narrative up to this point. In just a handful of movies, Holland's Spider-Man went from a spunky kid who played pinch hitter during one tense airport battle to a universe-travelling hero who would put his life on the line to save other people. Peter Parker also developed a deeply moving dynamic with Tony Stark, serving as his protégé-on-the-rise and standing as the closest thing to a son that Tony ever had. For Marvel fans, now it looks like they're both gone. It seems like Spider-Man will never again cross paths with other MCU heroes, and will instead spend his next few movies cozying up to characters in Sony's Spidey universe. #MCU #Sony #SpiderMan

Spider-Man: Far From Home Re-Release Details Revealed

 This just in: Spider-Man is set to swing back into cinemas for an extra-special re-release. Sony Pictures announced on August 19th that Spider-Man: Far From Home will return to theaters over Labor Day weekend. Here's what you need to know about the re-release. First and most importantly is the launch date. According to Variety, Spider-Man: Far From Home's re-release run will begin on Thursday, August 29th. It's not clear how long Far From Home will stick around in cinemas for its second outing, though it appears that it may be a one-weekend-only engagement. Spidey fans would be wise to clear their schedules from Thursday to Sunday just to be safe. Sony has confirmed that those in the U.S. and Canada will be able to attend the Spider-Man: Far From Home re-release in standard-format showings as well as in IMAX and large-format screenings, available at select locations. Viewers might want to spend a little extra money on an IMAX ticket for the re-release of Spider-Man: Far From Home because it will be an extended cut of the theatrical version of the film. Sony has included four minutes of additional footage not shown in the original cut of Far From Home. The studio is keeping quiet about what this extra footage entails, but we have a few ideas regarding what it might be. The four minutes reportedly make up a single scene, with Collider's Steve Weintraub speculating that this sequence will take place ahead of the main action of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Weintraub has good reason to suspect that, after speaking with the director of Far From Home, Jon Watts, in a recent interview in which Watts opened up about the scenes left out of the theatrical cut of the movie. Watts explained that one deleted scene involves Tom Holland's Peter Parker running around New York and completing errands before jetting off to Europe: "There's just this very simple thing where we had Peter doing errands, getting ready for his trip. And it's going back to Mr. Delmar's, the deli, that's been rebuilt since it was blown up in Homecoming. And he has this very Spider-Man list of things to do. It's like get his passport, get the dual head phone adapter so he can listen to music with MJ on a flight, take down a giant gang." He added that the Far From Home team put that scene together as a kind of short film. Based on the intel Watts offered in his sit-down with Weintraub, it seems there's a solid chance that the four minutes of extra footage included in the Spider-Man: Far From Home re-release could be that little short film.

The Sam Jackson MCU Question We Finally Have An Answer To

 Marvel fans, you can all breathe a sigh of relief the cinematic universe you know and love isn't about to get any more complicated than it already is. Before he made his MCU debut as the eyepatch-wearing S.H.I.E.L.D. badass Nick Fury, Samuel L. Jackson was part of another huge movie franchise: Star Wars. There, he played Mace Windu, the revered Jedi Master who wielded an purple-bladed lightsaber and sat on the Jedi High Council in the final years of the Galactic Republic. Fans love that Jackson is part of two universally-loved film series, and they nearly flipped their lids when the MCU finally made a wink at that fact. If you'll recall, Jackson's Nick Fury mentioned Star Wars in Spider-Man: Far From Home, when he told Tom Holland's Peter Parker that he wouldn't understand the Shakespeare quote "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown" because "it wasn't a Star Wars reference." That led many to question why Peter a confirmed Star Wars enthusiast, as established by the events of Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming didn't comment that Fury and Mace Windu look exactly alike when he officially met the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in Far From Home. It also caused some Marvel fans to theorize that perhaps Fury and Windu are the same person or, at the very least, that Fury may have been leading a double life as an actor. Now, we have an official answer to the question. Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed during an appearance on Lucasfilm's CH-me web series The Star Wars Show that Fury and Windu aren't the same person, Fury isn't the actor who portrayed Windu in the Star Wars franchise, and there's no MCU plot hole to patch up now that Fury made a Star Wars reference. Sorry theorists this Marvel myth has been busted! Keep watching the video to see more about the Sam Jackson MCU question we finally have an answer to! #MCU #NickFury #MaceWindu

The Sam Jackson MCU Question We Finally Have An Answer To

 Před 26 dny

 Marvel fans, you can all breathe a sigh of relief the cinematic universe you know and love isn't about to get any more complicated than it already is. Before he made his MCU debut as the eyepatch-wearing S.H.I.E.L.D. badass Nick Fury, Samuel L. Jackson was part of another huge movie franchise: Star Wars. There, he played Mace Windu, the revered Jedi Master who wielded an purple-bladed lightsaber and sat on the Jedi High Council in the final years of the Galactic Republic. Fans love that Jackson is part of two universally-loved film series, and they nearly flipped their lids when the MCU finally made a wink at that fact. If you'll recall, Jackson's Nick Fury mentioned Star Wars in Spider-Man: Far From Home, when he told Tom Holland's Peter Parker that he wouldn't understand the Shakespeare quote "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown" because "it wasn't a Star Wars reference." That led many to question why Peter a confirmed Star Wars enthusiast, as established by the events of Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming didn't comment that Fury and Mace Windu look exactly alike when he officially met the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in Far From Home. It also caused some Marvel fans to theorize that perhaps Fury and Windu are the same person or, at the very least, that Fury may have been leading a double life as an actor. Now, we have an official answer to the question. Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed during an appearance on Lucasfilm's CH-me web series The Star Wars Show that Fury and Windu aren't the same person, Fury isn't the actor who portrayed Windu in the Star Wars franchise, and there's no MCU plot hole to patch up now that Fury made a Star Wars reference.

The Blockbuster Hit Of 2019 You Haven't Heard Of Yet

 The Goldfinch enthralled readers after its Pulitzer-winning release as an acclaimed novel, and now it's poised to have the same effect on filmgoers as it arrives in theaters in 2019. Wondering when you can see it, who's starring in it, and who's behind the camera? Here's everything you need to know. Fans of Donna Tartt's work have grown accustomed to waiting - her shortest gap between novels is the ten-year drought that spanned between her 1992 debut The Secret History and its follow-up, The Little Friend - so the fact that The Goldfinch has taken six years to make its way to the big screen is almost to be expected. But for those who've been eager to see this story brought to life in theaters, that patience will soon be rewarded: The Goldfinch is scheduled to arrive on September 13th, 2019. A fall release date for a major motion picture tends to signal the studio's belief that the film in question could be a contender during awards season. After blockbuster season fades in August, audiences tend to be in the mood for more serious fare - and awards voters are also more likely to remember a movie that earned acclaim later in the year. Whether this confidence pays off after critics have their say remains to be seen, but this release date bodes well for the way studio execs feel about The Goldfinch. When it came time to cast The Goldfinch's main character, Theo, the minds behind the film knew they would have to cast someone who could shoulder every bit of the protagonist's intense, harrowing emotional journey. Keep watching the video to learn more about the blockbuster hit of 2019 you haven't heard of yet! #Goldfinch Release date | 0:16 Star-studded cast | 1:12 A quick sell | 2:10 Strong director | 2:49 Flying to Amazon Studios | 3:25

The Real Reason Krypton Was Cancelled

 If you were a fan of SyFy's Krypton, then it's easy to understand why you might be confused by its cancellation. But it seems like there were some good reasons for Syfy to pull the plug. Here's why Krypton was blown up earlier than expected. If you judge it purely by critical reception, Krypton's cancellation is confusing. Critics almost unanimously praised the series' second season over its first. IGN's David Griffith called it "bigger and bolder," and Eric Joseph from We Got This Covered wrote that the series was, quote, "finally finding its potential." But the improvements didn't matter if no one was watching it. It's not that nobody watched Krypton's second season, but the numbers dropped significantly. According to CinemaBlend, Krypton's series premiere was Syfy's highest-rated debut in four years. But the numbers dropped from there. The average viewership for a season 1 episode was close to 790,000. TV Series Finale reports that Krypton's second season finale attracted only 350,000 viewers, less than half of the audience of most season 1 episodes.

Star Wars Movies Never Answer These Major Questions

 Even if the expanded universe has taken the time to answer some burning questions, the Star Wars films are absolutely packed with fascinating mysteries, some of which may never be addressed again. Here are just some of the biggest questions Star Wars has yet to answer. The prequel trilogy is all about charting the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker from boy with tons of potential to hotshot Jedi to Dark Lord of the Sith. That all begins with Qui-Gon Jinn's realization that Anakin, whose midichlorian ratings and natural talents seem off the charts, must be the Chosen One. When he relays his suspicions to the Jedi Council, Mace Windu brings up, quote, "the prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the Force." Yoda, Mace, Qui-Gon, and Obi-Wan Kenobi are all very aware of this prophecy, and Anakin's Chosen One narrative continues right up to the moment he loses his lightsaber duel with Obi-Wan in Revenge of the Sith. So, the prequels are very clear that a prophecy exists and that it's well-known among Jedi Masters, but what the films don't make clear is exactly where the prophecy comes from. Who first articulated it? How long has it been around? Does every Jedi take it seriously or do a lot of them believe it's made-up hogwash that has no practical application when it comes to protecting the galaxy? And what does "bring balance to the Force" even mean when the Jedi believe that they've long-since defeated the Sith? The original trilogy makes it a bit of a point to never explain much about Yoda, the enigmatic Jedi Master who lives on the swamp planet of Dagobah and even pretends he's not who he really is when he first meets Luke Skywalker, just to teach the young apprentice a lesson in expectation versus reality.

Fall TV Shows That Are Sure To Get Canceled

 We sifted through the list of upcoming shows and tried to determine which ones might not survive 2019. Maybe it's a case of a bad premise, showrunners with awful track records, or just tired storylines. Regardless, this group of programs may not be long for the televised world. ABC is no stranger to genre thrillers based around supernatural events or characters that have otherworldly powers. In that vein, the Alphabet Network is bringing us Emergence, about a police chief who finds a mysterious young girl near the site of a major accident. That discovery leads to a vast conspiracy surrounding the child. Though the idea of superhuman kids on television is far from new, networks haven't had the best success with the concept in recent years. Fox dipped its toes into the Marvel universe in 2017 with The Gifted, a show about a family that discovers its children have the mutant gene. The show lasted two seasons before being canceled. The network tried again two years later with The Passage, in which a federal agent protects a young girl at the center of a series of top-secret government tests. That show lasted ten episodes before getting the ax. And when you realize that ABC has struggled with some of its other out-of-this-world sci-fi shows like FlashForward or V, it seems Emergence could be headed for a relatively quick disappearance. Watch the video to see what these are the fall TV shows that are sure to get canceled! #FallTV #FallTVLineup Emergence | 0:16 Mixed-ish | 1:15 Outmatched | 2:13 Perfect Harmony | 2:51 All Rise | 3:48 The Baker and the Beauty | 4:45 Evil | 5:47 The Kenan Show | 7:08 neXt | 8:27 Prodigal Son | 9:26
