The Great Wall Trailer

Legendary Pictures seems to be in the business of bringing monsters back to theaters in a big way. They revived Godzilla back in 2014 (with a sequel in the works as well), they had kaiju fight Jaegers in Pacific Rim, they’re bringing back King Kong next year in Kong: Skull Island (watch the new trailer), and then they’re going to have Godzilla and King Kong fight in 2020. Now they’re bringing monsters into the deep past of China.

The Great Wall takes place 1,000 years ago, revealing the real reason the the iconic structure known as The Great Wall of China was built. Believe it or not, it appears the reason that the wall was built was to keep China safe from some extremely dangerous monsters, and Matt Damon is one of the noble warriors fighting against them.

Eight Days a Week Trailer

In the decades since they became a sensational imported rock band from the United Kingdom, there have been countless documentaries, TV specials, books and more recounting the rise to fame of The Beatles. But believe it or not, there’s still plenty of footage, stories and photos that you haven’t seen which will be unveiled in a new documentary coming this fall.

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years is a new feature film from director Ron Howard that takes a look at the band’s time spent on tour from 1962 until 1966, as well as their origins, inner-workings and controversies. For even the most hardcore fans of the Fab Four, this looks like it will have something new to learn.

The Muppets live show

Around the time that it was rumored that Guardians of the Galaxy would be taking over Disney California Adventure’s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (which has now been officially announced), it was also rumored that Disney World’s the Magic Kingdom’s Hall of Presidents would be getting a makeover incorporating The Muppets. The Muppets rumor turned out to be partially true, but thankfully the puppeted characters won’t be added to the classic Walt Disney attraction. Instead, they will be featured in a live show outside the famous hall. Hit the jump to learn about The Muppets live show.

the rocketeer sequel

When The Rocketeer was originally released in 1991, it was a box office flop. Now, over twenty years later, it’s clear that it was simply a few decades ahead of its time. Joe Johnston‘s film, an adaptation of Dave Stevens‘ comic book series of the same name, is earnest, adventurous, silly, and impossibly nerdy. It’s a throwback to old school serial adventure movies, but it still feels fresh and modern today. Like Johnston’s later comic book movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, it’s a superhero movie that takes full advantage of its period setting to create a world that is fresh and fun and feels unlike most modern action movies. The Rocketeer has rightfully developed a massive following over the years.

Now, Disney seems to have taken notice of the love swirling around the film and have begun developing a sequel titled The Rocketeers. This is the very definition of cool movie news.

Mr Robot Init1 recap

This Mr. Robot review was written by Corey Atad.

There’s no question Mr. Robot’s second season has started off slow. It has engendered complaints. Impatience. The truth is, this is common for TV series in a new season. Mad Men, for example, frequently got complaints during the first few episodes of each season, with people claiming it had finally lost its luster, or that nothing interesting was happening. Of course, once each season was over, the long game had become clear. More than just setup, those early episodes set the tone, established the overriding mission of the season, and helped give shape to the movement that would become apparent episodes later.

It’s immediately clear to me that Mr. Robot is doing something similar in its second season. The first season put pedal to the metal, catching up with Elliot and company mid-plot. Season 2 thus far has done something of a reset. Where the show has always been an interior exploration, the first three episodes of Season 2 have prized interiority above all. It’s hard to tell exactly what that’s all for, but it would be a mistake to assume it’s about plot. Plot can be handled easily and quickly, but defining a perspective, both of character and style, takes more work, especially when it represents a sharp change from what came before.

The season’s fourth episode, “Init1,” appears to begin the “payoff,” such as there will be one. Its style has begun to coalesce into something more coherent and emotionally compelling. Its plotting finally appears to signal some forward momentum after a period of forced stasis. And, just as we’d hope from this show, it creates more and more mysteries, more questions to be answered.

Let’s take a look at some of those questions, shall we? And remember, spoilers are to come, so you best have watched the episode in question.  Read More »

Suicide Squad Featurette

We’re about a week from seeing whether or not Suicide Squad is as fun as the trailers have made it out to be, hopefully making it the perfect remedy for those who didn’t enjoy Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There’s not much buzz on the supervillain spin-off of the DC Comics cinematic universe just yet (the embargo on those who have seen it so far breaks in the morning on August 2), but we’re definitely hoping for the best.

Continuing to tease the arrival of Suicide Squad, a new featurette has just surfaced online, and this one has tons of new footage from the film as well as some great glimpses behind the scenes of the set (which we visited last year while they were in production). The cast talks about the experience of working with David Ayer, and there’s plenty of talking heads with the filmmaker himself and some of the other integral members of the crew. Watch the new Suicide Squad featurette below. Read More »

Doctor Strange Trailer breakdown

The first Doctor Strange trailer was all about table setting, introducing a lesser known (to non-geek crowds) Marvel superhero to the unwashed masses. The new trailer, which premiered at the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con 2016, goes all in with the big action and crazy images. This movie looks nuts…but nuts enough to break the usual Marvel mold? Let’s take a closer look.

Hacksaw Ridge trailer

War movies are a common sight, and World War II is an especially popular choice of subject matter. But Hacksaw Ridge is one of the few you’ll ever see where a soldier emerges as the hero without firing a single bullet. Mel Gibson‘s first directorial effort in ten years stars Andrew Garfield as Desmond Doss, a real-life American soldier who refused to kill or even carry a gun due to his religious beliefs. Instead, he aided the war effort as a medic and saves the lives of dozens of his comrades. In 1945, Doss became the first-ever conscientious objector to win the Medal of Honor.

Vince VaughnSam WorthingtonLuke BraceyHugo Weaving, and Teresa Palmer also star. Watch the Hacksaw Ridge trailer below.  Read More »

Guillermo del Toro Bleak House tour

If you’re even a casual Guillermo del Toro fan, you’ve probably heard of Bleak House, the director’s second home. It looks like any other San Fernando Valley suburban home from the outside, but inside is a treasure trove of weird and wonderful memorabilia including original art, movie props, medical oddities, books and comics, hyper-realistic live-sized mannequins of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, and more. Much more — there are reportedly over 10,000 different items inside.

In other words, it’d be any geek’s dream to drop in and explore. Most of us won’t ever get to, sadly, but recently Conan‘s Andy Richter had the opportunity to not only visit, but get a personal tour from del Toro himself. Watch the full Guillermo del Toro Bleak House tour below.  Read More »
