Before Disney brought John Carter to movie theaters, resulting in one of the biggest box office bombs in recent memory, the film was in development at Paramount Pictures. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow director Kerry Conran was attached to direct the adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough‘s classic sci-fi novel John Carter of Mars, but it never came to fruition before the rights lapsed and ended up at the House of Mouse.
But for anyone who has ever wondered what this first iteration of John Carter of Mars might have looked like, a presentation reel has surfaced online with some very impressive designs that would have been awesome to see on the big screen. Watch the John Carter pitch reel after the jump! Read More »
After the release of Man of Steel, some fans griped about the massive amount of seemingly careless destruction in the finale when Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) zoom around Metropolis, smashing into skyscraper after skyscraper. And this is all after the world engine has already done plenty of damage to the city as well.
Last winter we found out that those complaints would be addressed in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the level of destruction would actually be a major element in how the rest of the world views Superman, and more specifically, how Bruce Wayne views the new godlike hero. And because of that, Zack Snyder has defended the ending to those complains, and Ben Affleck has added another detail that fuels the fire between Batman and Superman.

This weekend Terminator: Genisys is hitting theaters, but veteran action star Arnold Schwarzenegger has a lot more to worry about than a new advanced cyborg. No, Schwarznegger’s biggest threat is a group of shirtless, thrusting men from Magic Mike XXL.
The film has plenty of men and women alike getting the vapors, and Conan O’Brien wanted to see what all the fuss was about. On a recent episode of his late night talk show on TBS, Conan joined his female staff members for a girls night out as they headed to a midnight screening of the Channing Tatum-led sequel that isn’t about a heavyweight magician. As you probably guessed, the results are pretty damn funny.

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 go to our 20 year high school reunion with a documentary crew in tow, play “gotcha!” with the world, pick a fight with the wrong people in Texas, try and figure out what steampunk is really about before heading off to Comic-Con, and grow a tail while caring for an old lady.

If you’ve seen Pixar‘s latest film Inside Out, then you likely felt a swell of all the feels a few times throughout the movie. And while it’s easy for some of us to get caught up in the emotions of the film (both as feelings and as characters scrambling on the big screen), there are those who may not be as moved by the struggles 11-year old Riley has in the movie.
A clever new video has surfaced online called Pixar Depression, presented as if it were a prescription commercial for some kind of anti-depressant. In reality, what it does is poke fun at the hardships presented in the movie by pointing out that Riley just has a case of first world problems. Watch Pixar Depression after the jump! Read More »
