Max Landis discusses his rejected Pokemon pitch because he is Max Landis

Last week we reported that Legendary will bring Detective Pikachu to the big screen some time in the future, a project propelled in part by the popularity of Pokemon Go. Detective Pikachu seems like an unexpected way to do a ...   0

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival will be on Netflix

Watch the trailer for The Lost Arcade, a documentary on NYC's Chinatown Fair

Watch the Wonder Woman trailer from the San Diego Comic-Con

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was one of the highlights of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. She was a real hero in a movie filled with mopey people. Her appearance whetted everyone's appetite for Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman mov...   0

Get a taste of Jared Leto's Joker performance in this Suicide Squad promo

I'd like to think that Jared Leto is currently at The Gathering of the Juggalos dressed as The Joker from Suicide Squad. In-character, too. He would fit right in, as least outwardly. We know he's got facial tattoos and is ful...   0

Jon Stewart returns, does a Daily Show takedown of Donald Trump on Stephen Colbert's Late Show

Here's an underwhelming first look at Amazon's The Tick reboot

When we reported about Amazon's reboot of The Tick a few months ago, we learned that the reboot would be "darker and more grounded," which is exactly what people wanted from a parody of superheroes. Now we have our first look at this darker and more grounded version of The Tick and it's thoroughly underwhelming. Just take a look at the new costume:   0

Netflix launches Flixtape, which is part-playlist and part-mixtape

The trailer for Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville's Skiptrace would be better with Adele

It's been a long while since Jackie Chan's put out a genuinely good movie. In my opinion, his last great film was 2004's New Police Story, though he's still capable of some flashes of brilliance as seen in 2013's Chinese Zodi...   0

The new Magnificent Seven remake trailer feels like a rompy riff on the source material

John Sturges' The Magnificent Seven was an excellent riff on Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, full of distinct characters, solid performances, and that memorable theme song. I was a bit skeptical about Antoine Fuqua helming a ...   0

The new Godzilla Resurgence trailer is full of gravitas, pathos, and splosions

I wasn't that much of a fan of Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla. While well-shot, the story was so-so and focused too much on Aaron Taylor-Johnson's bland lead character. It didn't help that Blandy McBlanderson was surrounded by...   0

Nerd rage over all-female Ghostbusters reinforces negative stereotypes about male geek culture

Review: Equals

Any society that appears outwardly utopian is really just a nicely packaged dystopia. The orgiastic bacchanal of Logan's Run was really just an ugly form of institutionalized ignorance and population control. Gattaca was a st...   0
