Creed 2 Casting - Florian Munteanu

Back in November last year, we heard that Creed 2 might be looking for someone to play the son of Ivan Drago, the legendary boxer responsible for killing Apollo Creed in the ring at the beginning of Rocky IV in 1985. At the time, an MMA fighter named  Sage Northcutt said that he sent in a tape as an audition for the role, but there had been no real confirmation that the spin-off sequel starring Michael B. Jordan would bring in the offspring of another legacy character. Now not only do we have confirmation of the character’s involvement in the sequel, but we know who’s playing him as well, and it’s not the aforementioned MMA fighter.

Get the details on the Creed 2 casting of Ivan Drago’s son below. Read More »

‘Hitman’ TV Series Teased by DC’s Geoff Johns

hitman tv series

The CW has found a great deal of success by giving slightly less iconic superheroes the spotlight. Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow have created a DC universe that is more coherent and fun than anything in theaters. So why not bring one of the best and lesser known (at least to non-comics fans) characters of the ’90s to the small screen?

If a few words from DC’s Geoff Johns are any indication, Tommy Monaghan, better known as Hitman, could be coming to the small screen.

Show Dogs Trailer

While movies like Moana, How to Train Your Dragon and Inside Out may try to entertain kids with stories that are funny, touching and family friendly, there are other movies that try to appeal to the lowest common denominator of children’s entertainment. Thankfully, Show Dogs is not one of those movies.

Instead, Show Dogs is so much worse. It’s the kind of trainwreck that you can’t help but stare at in awe with your mouth wide open. But what else would you expect from a movie about a detective (Will Arnett) being paired with a dog partner (voiced by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) in order to thwart some kind of animal smuggling ring unfolding at a fancy dog show?

Watch the Show Dogs trailer and see this beautiful disaster for yourself. Read More »
