first-person call of duty ad

Peter Berg and Taylor Kitsch have stuck by one another for years, beginning with Friday Night Lights and carrying through Battleship and last year’s Lone Survivor. Now they’ve teamed up for an entirely different sort of combat engagement. Kitsch stars in Berg’s first-person Call of Duty ad — a live-action affair that, like the game series, puts the viewer in the primary role. Then it throws a set of sad cliches at us. Catch ‘em all below.  Read More »

Starry Eyes trailer

Starry Eyes answers an old question — what would you do for fame? — with brutal and visceral intensity. The film, written and directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, features Alex Essoe in a figurative and literal star-making turn. She plays Sarah, a young woman whose own self-destructive tendencies play right into the odd desires of one casting director, leading to what could be her big break as the lead actor in a horror feature. But things get really really weird as Sarah is asked to do more than she ever expected to keep her new gig. The film also stars Noah Segan, Pat Healy, Amanda Fuller, Shane Coffer, Fabianne Therese; check out a great Starry Eyes trailer below.

Glass Ceiling Spider-Man

What’s going on with Spider-Man over at Sony? Great question! The guy seems all… tangled up in…string, er, webs. That is, plans. Anyway, you get it. Seems like a bit of a mess over there.

A third Amazing Spider-Man film is planned, with a scheduled release in 2018, and before that we’ll (maybe) get the bad guy team-up movie Sinister Six. That film has been described as a Dirty Dozen sort of story with Spidey basically in the Lee Marvin role, working with the villains. That’s one conception of it, at least. There’s talk of a “soft reboot” of the series, culling out a lot of the more poorly-received aspects of the last two films while retaining the basic aspects. We don’t know what’s up with the mooted Venom movie, and there are rumored plans for a solo film highlighting one of the women in the Spider-Man character roster.

Now there’s a new rumor of a project going by the code name Glass Ceiling. This one concerns a bunch of the female hero and anti-hero characters from Spider-Man’s history, and could team them up into a single film. Assuming it gets that far, at least. Get the Glass Ceiling details, such as they are, below. Read More »

Wonder Woman header

A schedule is one thing, a cohesive plan is another. That’s the main difference between what we know about DC’s upcoming superhero movies and Marvel’s. Marvel has Civil War and new characters, all building to Avengers: Infinity War. DC has Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, a solo movie, then Justice League followed by more solo movies. It feels a little scattered.

Then again, maybe it’s not. A new rumor has come up in regards to that first DC solo movie, Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot. Since she’s a character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we all just assumed her 2017 solo film would take place in that time period. And while it still might, the new rumor is the Wonder Woman solo movie is set in the 1920s, making it a prequel. Read More »
