UPDATE 2: These Avengers: Age of Ultron character posters have less cooks

UPDATE 2: Here's good ole' Captain America. In better news, we'll be getting a new (most likely final) trailer for Age of Ultron this Thursday. We'll be letting you know as soon as it hits, of course. I'm sure we'll get more ...

Newest Jem and the Holograms movie image is truly, truly, truly outrageous

Coming out of absolutely nowhere comes my most anticipated project in some time. After Universal announced that Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe Retaliation/Step Up) is adapting the popular children's cartoon about a kickass girl band an...

Warner Bros is working on an Adventure Time movie

This next bit of news is algebraic, slamacow, mathmathical, and all of the other phrases Adventure Time used in the early seasons and threw away later. When we usually get news of a successful kids property getting a full fil...

New Fantastic Four images are...pretty ordinary

I don't have a lot to say about the new Fantastic Four pictures from Empire. They exist, they're boring, whatever. I'd like to take this time, instead, to make a formal apology to Josh Trank and the rest of the cast and crew ...

Flix for Short: Power/Rangers, a super gritty MMPR fan film

Last year, around the time Saban and Lionsgate announced they were working on a new Power Rangers movie, I wrote up a few ways to do it properly. One of those suggestions is to keep the grimdark stuff as far away as possible...

Settlers of Catan rights for film and TV acquired

If there's one thing The LEGO Movie has proven to audiences and, most importantly, producers, is that there's a good movie hidden inside every property, including toys.  Which is why I'm not really sure how to react when...

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

Fifty Shades Of Grey was a movie without a country. Sam Taylor-Johnson attempted to craft a feminist subversion out of the novel's infamous tale of abuse, whereas E.L. James wanted her work to be faithfully adapted, and clash...

Newest Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends trailer is on fire

I'm not a huge anime or manga fan (I'll stick to One Piece thank you very much), but I really dug Rurouni Kenshin and the films adapted from the series. The story of a former assassin who's turned a new leaf and refuses to k...

Joel Kinnaman replacing Tom Hardy in Suicide Squad

One of the weirdest films coming out of Warner Bros and DC's upcoming film slate is definitely the supervillain team up film, Suicide Squad. Normally I'd make some joke about a bland white guy replacing a bland white guy...

4 Spider-Man villains we PROBABLY won't see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Sony and Marvel deciding to share Spider-Man is beyond awesome. It's something I've always dreamed of, ever since Marvel Studios started making movies. Now, one can presume that most if not all of Spidey's supporting cast and...

First The Man from U.N.C.L.E. trailer is F.U.N.

Now here's a trailer our Matthew Razak, Bond aficionado and baby daddy, will definitely get a kick out of. When Guy Ritchie's attached to a project, such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E. adaptation of a 1960s spy TV show, you know...

Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

I should start this review by being as frank as possible. I'm not really sure who this review is for. With Fifty Shades of Grey, you'll fall into either one of two camps. You're either planning to see it (or have already...

5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea

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 acc...

5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a good idea

Sony's Spider-Man officially joining Marvel cinematic universe

Wow, so, uh, yeah. I'm at a loss for words. Because both Sony and Marvel like money, and Sony has been wondering what to do with the The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, the two companies are now working together. According to t...

While we've got a bunch of questions as to the plot of Avengers: Age of Ultron, there's only a few months to go before we actually see it. 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 Fifty Shades of Grey

In preparation for the Fifty Shades film, which I have no idea which one of us is going to review yet, I started reading the book. Boy, is it far more fan fiction-y than I had realized. It's got some of the worst written sex...

Super Bowl TV spot for Kingsman: The Secret Service

I'm not sure what to think of Kingsman: The Secret Service. It looks interesting, but it's yet another adaptation based off another of Mark Millar's comic books. The guy doesn't have the best track record, and the films base...

Super Bowl TV spot for Tomorrowland photo
Super Bowl TV spot for Tomorrowland
by Nick Valdez

Through its trailers and how little story we've been given so far, Tomorrowland is shaping up to be one of the more interesting movies this year. Like Pirates of the Caribbean, it's a film adapted from Disney parks, but unlike Pirates, it's being handled by a good team. This Super Bowl spot shows a bit of new footage (though it's missing the cool robots from the Comic-Con stuff) and more Clooney monologue, so it's all good in my book. 

Directed by Brad Bird, starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, Tomorrowland opens May 22nd.
