Conan Trains with Wonder Woman

In one week, we’ll see Gal Gadot return to the big screen for her first solo outing as Wonder Woman. While the actress certainly makes being a superhero look easy, she had to take on six months of various martial arts, weapon and plain old physical training to get in the right shape for the role in the DC Comics movie. Some of the action she did in reshoots even happened while she was pregnant.

Looking to get the same kind of training in a much shorter amount of time, Conan O’Brien got together with Gal Gadot and her trainer for a little workout session so the comedian could comes as close as possible to being as skilled as Wonder Woman. Watch as Conan trains with Wonder Woman after the jump. Read More »

Star Wars Stormtrooper Blooper

There are mistakes in every single major motion picture every made. Sometimes it’s something as small as a continuity error, like the position of a pen on a desk. Other times it’s something glaring, like a Stormtrooper banging their head on a blast door inside the Death Star for everyone to notice.

That’s right, in case you haven’t ever seen it, there’s a blooper in the original Star Wars (which celebrated its 40th anniversary yesterday) where one Stormtrooper hits their head on a blast door as they enter a room in the Death Star while looking for the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO. It’s a pretty big mistake to end up in a movie, and now we finally have an explanation as to why it happened from the clumsy Stormtrooper himself.

The Boss Baby teaser trailer

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named The Boss Baby, and a sequel was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Man, the Bible really saw this afternoon’s movie news coming, huh? Maybe I should have paid closer attention in church. Anyway, The Boss Baby 2 is in the works, just as the Book of Revelation foretold.

John Boyega Hugs Adam Driver - Kylo Ren

In the world of acting, there are those stars who are only in character when the camera is rolling, and there are those who prefer to dig a little deeper and stay in character during the production, if not a bit longer. It sounds like Adam Driver belongs in the latter category, at least when it comes to playing the physically and emotionally scarred Star Wars villain Kylo Ren.

At the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren had to make the grim decision to kill his father Han Solo in order to stop the struggle in his mind that kept him from submitting to the dark side completely. Adam Driver has said that because of that, there may be more scars he’s dealing with than the one that now crosses his eye, and when he’s on set, he brings that emotional intensity to his performance.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by fellow cast members John Boyega and Mark Hamill, and they each tried to get through that exterior in their own way during production on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Find out more below. Read More »

hannibal miniseries

It’s easy to be sad that Hannibal is no more, but it’s hard to be angry. The late, great horror series had a passionate fan base, but also a tiny fan base – very few people actually watched this mesmerizing and completely bonkers series and the three seasons NBC gave it were generous. And yet, there has been buzz about a potential fourth season ever since the show’s cancelation…buzz that has been continuously stoked by creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller, who has made it perfectly clear that he’d love to return.

In fact, it’s hard to grieve the end of this show (which had a pitch-perfect finale) when Fuller keeps on spitballing Hannibal season 4 ideas in public.

Wonder Woman Trailer

After her scene-stealing turn in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s hard to think of anyone else but Gal Gadot donning the golden bracelets, wielding the Lasso of Truth, and kicking ass as the Princess of Themyscira. But before she auditioned for the role that would change her life, the Wonder Woman star nearly quit acting altogether. Here is Gadot’s account of how she stuck it out and ultimately got the part.

Ozark trailer

I love watching great television shows. But at this point, the rate at which Netflix is dropping new content on its subscribers is almost aggressive. They’re starting to seem like the Joker in The Dark Knight, setting fire to massive piles of cash in a darkened warehouse for no reason other than that they enjoy the chaos of it all. They just want to watch the world burn. And yes, I’m fully aware that I’ve reached peak #firstworldproblems status: I’m actually angry about how many good new shows exist that I want to watch.

And now the streaming service has released a teaser trailer for a dark new drama starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney called Ozark, and damn it, this one also looks terrific. Watch the first Ozark trailer below.

Mark Hamill Rian Johnson disagreement

Yesterday’s Vanity Fair’s cover story gave us all kinds of insight into Lucasfilm’s upcoming sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but they aren’t done dropping new snippets of information about the movie, and we just read something that’s worth discussing in a little more detail.

Mark Hamill, who plays one of the most iconic characters in film history, says he “fundamentally disagreed” with the way The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson envisioned Luke Skywalker in the new film. Whoa.
