Even though Transformers: The Last Knight has been in production for a while now, we’re still very much in the dark when it comes to the story of the latest franchise sequel directed by Michael Bay. We’ll be able to fill in some gaps when the embargo from our set visit a little while ago is up (it keeps getting pushed back for the time being), but in the meantime, a major story rumor about the film appears to be confirmed with production moving to the United Kingdom. But since it ventures into spoiler territory, we’ll discuss the Transformers The Last Knight story below. Read More »

USA presented a panel called “Decoding Season_2.0 With the Women of Mr. Robot” for the Television Critics Association, featuring stars Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubleday, Grace Gummer, and Stephanie Corneliussen. Creator and showrunner Sam Esmail was busy editing the show, so representing the behind the scenes of the show was Dawn Olmstead, Executive Vice President, Development, Universal Cable Productions and Wilshire Studios.

Last week, fans were thrown into a tizzy by a new rumor about the casting of Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Some were thrilled, while others took more of a “wait and see” stance. And predictably, a handful of people were upset to hear that Spider-Man: Homecoming would stray from original vision of Mary Jane as a redheaded white girl.
But one person who seems just fine with the change is the man who helped created her. Stan Lee has spoken up to endorse the new Mary Jane in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Read the Stan Lee Mary Jane comments below. Read More »
Sadly, Laika’s Kubo and the Two Strings came in fourth place at the box office this past weekend. It’s the Portland-based company’s lowest-grossing opening weekend to date, which is a shame. The beautiful, elegant and often moving stop-motion / CG hybrid may not have immediately caught on with moviegoers, but the film already has its fans, and some of those fans may want to get their hands on the Kubo and the Two Strings soundtrack on Vinyl. Thanks to Mondotees, they’ll soon be able to do so.
Below, learn more about the Kubo and the Two Strings vinyl release.

Presumably, there’s a whole galaxy that is chock full of eclectic music in the Star Wars universe. However, fans have only heard a very limited amount of it in the Star Wars movies. There’s Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes (aka the Cantina Band) from Star Wars: A New Hope, Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band from Return of the Jedi, and the unnamed Star Wars: The Force Awakens band in Maz Kanata’s cantina which is composed of Taybin Ralorsa, Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins, Ubert “Sticks” Quaril, and Sudswater Dillifay Glon.
But what if the rest of the characters we know in the Star Wars universe all had albums of their own inspired by a variety of popular albums from Earth? One artist has recreated some familiar album covers from the likes of Eminem, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Band, Queen, Rage Against the Machine, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, but using characters from the Star Wars universe in place of the artists and their album artwork.

Playing in 100 locations around the country right now is the sophomore writing/directing effort of comedian turned filmmaker Mike Birbiglia. He made a splash at Sundance a few years ago with the charming, semi-autobiographical Sleepwalk with Me, and now he’s back with a movie called Don’t Think Twice, focusing on a group of tight-knit friends in an improv troupe. The film is in the same vein as Broadcast News and other films from James L. Brooks, just set in the world of improv comedy, and it’s truly a must-see.
Now in an efforts to help promote the movie, producers forced Mike Birbiglia to create a viral video to make more people aware of the movie. Sadly, this resulted in cast members Gillian Jacobs (Community), Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates), Chris Gethard (Broad City), and Tami Sagher (Inside Amy Schumer) all getting the viral video virus. Watch the Don’t Think Twice viral video after the jump. Read More »
