Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV Spot

We’re less than a month from the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and the onslaught of marketing for the next chapter of the Skywalker saga is increasing everyday. Now that all the theatrical trailers have been released, we’re starting to get tidbits of new footage by way of TV spots, and a new one has just popped up.

Most of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV spots feature recycled footage from the trailers, but in a new glimpse at the sequel from director Rian Johnson, we see some new footage of Finn (John Boyega) as he plays catch-up with what’s going on between the Resistance and the First Order. Read More »

Chance the Rapper Hosted Saturday Night Live

That’s right. Out of the six episodes of Saturday Night Live we’ve had so far, the best episode of the season wasn’t hosted by a huge movie star or a popular comedian. Instead it was hosted by chart-topping hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper, who makes the case for his own career in comedy effortlessly.

Chance the Rapper has taken to the stage in Studio 8H before a a musical guest on SNL, but this was his first time hosting the show. While he seemed a little nervous at the top of the show, he gradually got more and more comfortable as the night went on and proved that he has some impressive comedy chops. So let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Chance the Rapper hosted Saturday Night Live below.

New Terminator Sequel

Against all odds, the Terminator franchise is being kept alive thanks to producer James Cameron. The crippled sci-fi film series now has a home at 20th Century Fox, and Cameron is hoping to spark the beginning of a new Terminator trilogy, complete with original stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton reprising their roles as the T-800 killing machine and Sarah Connor respectively.

The new Terminator sequel already had a team of writers on board that included David Goyer (Man of Steel), Justin Rhodes (Green Lantern Corps.), Charles Eglee (Dark Angel) and Josh Friedman (Avatar 2), but now they’ve added another writer to the process. The Hunger Games and Captain Phillips writer Billy Ray has been brought on board to give the script one final polish. While we don’t know the story of this new Terminator sequel yet, some details on a couple new characters have emerged. Read More »

Freddy Got Fingered conspiracy theory

I haven’t thought about actor/comedian Tom Green or his 2001 absurdist comedy Freddy Got Fingered since we wrote this article in March of 2016 about how a man was arrested after not returning his VHS rental of it after 14 years. If you told me that Green had a conspiracy theory about why Freddy Got Fingered didn’t perform well at the box office, I’d have shrugged it off – but he really does have one, and it actually sounds pretty reasonable.

Toho Studios is currently developing two Planet of the Monsters sequels, with the intent to create a Godzilla anime trilogy. In other words, Godzilla will continue his never-ending reign of destruction for the foreseeable future.

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week we try to go home again, take ourselves out to the ballgame with Bill Murray and his brother Brian, shake it like a Polaroid picture, oontz oontz oontz inside Cuba, and take a Czech skinhead bowling.  Read More »

‘Justice League’ Post-Credits Scene Explained

Justice League post-credits scene explained

The DC cinematic universe has avoided post-credits scenes thus far. The closest they’ve come is a mid-credits scene in last year’s Suicide Squad. But Justice League, WB’s biggest superhero movie yet, is taking a page out of the Marvel playbook: it features a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. Since the movie is in theaters now, let’s talk about what those scenes entail and how they set up things to come.

Warning: spoilers for Justice League and both of its credits scenes lie ahead.
