Rocky spin-off Creed gets a sad synopsis

It took me years, YEARS, to get over Rocky Balboa. When the three decade long Rocky saga finally came to end, it was a good end but I still wanted much more. The Rocky films mean so much to me (so much that I wrote my undergr...

Rumor: Naked Schwarzenegger will be sans Penys in Terminator: Genisys

We try to stay away from rumors as much as possible, but as in the past, sometimes something so ridiculous pops up, I just have to tell you about it. Case in point, the craziest thing I've heard about Terminator: Genisys (bes...

There are too many cooks on this Avengers: Age of Ultron poster

You kind of forget how massive this movie's cast is until you get it all in one image. It's...overwhelming. Notably, the cast includes Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell, and Anthony Mackie as well. Let's hope there's a good balance of all those big names. Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1st. [via Twitter] [Header via Hubes]

E.L. James wants control over next Fifty Shades screenplay

Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film photo
Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film
by Nick Valdez

When you write your list of perfect directors for the Alien franchise, where does Neill Blomkamp (director of District 9, Elysium and the upcoming Chappie) fall in? Hope it's close to the top because after what seems like months, Fox and Blomkamp have finally closed the deal. 

After Blomkamp posted some concept art to Instagram a few weeks back, he posited that he'd like to make an Alien film after his work on Chappie as a sort of reboot to the series. But he was the problem. It was just a matter of wanting to do it rather than being told not to. But I guess it's all straightened out now! According to Variety, Blomkamp's Alien is separated from the Prometheus films (so we're still getting Prometheus 2 for some reason) and will apparently take place years after the first Prometheus. 

If this can be anywhere as near as cool as that artwork he drew for the series, I'm game. I'm dropping the best one in the gallery below.

5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea photo
5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea
by Nick Valdez

Yesterday I wrote up a list of five reasons why Spider-Man joining the MCU was a good idea, and while I stand by my points, I couldn't shake the feeling in the back of my head. Cold and cynical as I am, it felt weird just accepting this hype train head on. You see, for as many reasons thinking it'd be a good idea, there are a strangely equal amount of reasons why it'd be a bad one. 

As more of the Sony/Marvel deal has been clarified with Sony indeed retaining majority creative control, and the two companies deciding to recast the titular character, I figured I should also go through five reasons why Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea.

Newest Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is almost perfect

I'm still very much as excited for Pitch Perfect 2 as I was in our staff's Most Anticipated of 2015 list, but this newest trailer for it worries me a bit. Sure it's got the same lovable 80s movie cheese (lol European super g...

I don't know about you all, but I'm still shocked at the news that Sony and Marvel are finally getting along and Spider-Man will officially join the Marvel movies. The finer details of the deal are still shrouded in mystery with some sites reporting that Sony let Marvel have the character for free, some saying Andrew Garfield is out for good and Marvel will recast, and we still don't know exactly how much control Sony will have going forward. But in the end, this is pretty awesome. 

But exactly how awesome is this move? After thinking about it for a bit (taking time in between to remind myself that this is real), I've come up with five reasons why Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is an Amazing, Astonishing, Spectacular, Ultimate, and Superior idea.

Review: The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water photo
Review: The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
by Nick Valdez

This may come as a surprise to you, but Spongebob Squarepants is still the juggernaut of a cartoon it was when it first debuted back in 1999. Never ceasing to keep kids' attention thanks to its unique characters and ever evolving comedy. Most importantly, it just has a lot of fun. 

I've been excited for Sponge Out of Water for some time. A sequel to a ten year old film, Water looked ambitious, full of crazy art styles, and once again had all of the fun that the series is known for. Good thing the film mostly lives up to that even if the humor has changed from what I remember.

Second Furious 7 trailer is still furious

Furious 7 is definitely my most anticipated film of 2015. Over big science fantasy action, man dancing, and comic book shenanigans, Furious 7 is the biggest sequel of the year. But I'm trying to not let myself get too excite...

To tie us over until then are this chunk of images of stuff we've seen before but in greater resolution. Soooo enjoy! Avengers: Age of Ultron releases May 1st.  [via Marvel]

Super Bowl TV Spot for Minions

They're baaaaaaack! Or, rather, they're here, since Minions serves as a prequel. Arguably the best characters in the Despicable Me franchise finally have their own film, and I couldn't be more excited. In Minions, ...

Jurassic World's first trailer was underwhelming for a number of reasons. As cool as a raptor gang was, the CG wasn't quite there yet and the tone of the trailer couldn't decide if it was supposed to be intentionally goofy or not. Thanks to better editing and a bit of new footage, the Super Bowl spot is much more gripping. 

Cool new dinos, cool new scares, and some poor Mexican worker is eaten (I always focus on the weirdest things). All good, good stuff. Jurassic World opens June 12th.
