Walmart Rogue One Commercial

This past Friday brought the first merchandise from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to store shelves. While the excitement doesn’t seem to be as high for Rogue Friday as it was for Force Friday last year, that’s to be expected since The Force Awakens had more excitement surrounding it as the first live-action Star Wars movie in 10 years.

Still, there were plenty of cool items to pick up at stores this weekend, including retailer exclusives that were only just recently revealed. Another one was shown on Rogue Friday with Walmart debuting an exclusive 6-inch Black Series figure for the Scarif Stormtrooper or Shoretrooper as they’ve also been called. To show off the exclusive action figure, they’ve released a quick, action-packed cinematic advertisement showing a squad of these Imperial troops in action. Read More »

‘The Purge’ May Be Getting A TV Series

The Purge TV show

The Purge movies have been reliable moneymakers for Universal, Blumhouse Productions, and Platinum Dunes. Their budgets are kept low, so when they make over $100 million worldwide, they crack a nice profit. Now that this franchise is three movies in, what’s in the future for this successful series? According to director James DeMonaco, it’s television.

Below, learn more about a possible The Purge TV show in development.

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 head to Romania for some Blood Simple, try and understand a madman, fondly remember a powerhouse of cinema critique that’s making a comeback, check in and then check out of Dolph Lundgren’s latest, revisit the Boston bombing ahead of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch’s version of events, and let Iggy Pop regale us with memories from the road.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Review

On paper, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children sounds like a perfect combination of talent, material, and timing. It’s essentially an X-Men movie, in keeping with the current craze for superhero films, but one with a fanciful gothic vibe. It is directed by the master of fanciful gothic vibes, Tim Burton — who knows a thing or two about superheroes and big-budget blockbusters already. It’s led by the living Tim Burton drawings Eva Green and Asa Butterfield. Oh, and it’s based on a bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs.

In short, it has all the makings of a big hit that brings some much-needed quirkiness back to the multiplex. So why, then, does it all feel so… uninspired? So familiar? So not-very-peculiar?  Read More »

FX’s ‘Archer’ Ending After Season 10

Archer end date

Over the summer, FX renewed its spy spoof Archer for not one, not two, but three seasons, bringing the total season count up to ten and keeping the show on air through about 2019. Once that season ends, though, it’ll be lights out for Sterling and Lana and Malory and the rest of the gang. “The plan is to end Archer after season 10,” series creator Adam Reed said in a recent interview.

star Trek fan film lawsuit

Last year, over $1 million was raised on Kickstarter and Indigogo for Axanar, a Star Trek fan film. The ambition was to make both a short film and a polished, feature-length fan film, but then CBS and Paramount stepped in and filed a lawsuit to prevent Axanar from going into production, claiming the film violates the rights of intellectual property. After a bit of an uproar surrounding the lawsuit, Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams said the lawsuit would soon go away. But it hasn’t.

Update from Editor Peter Sciretta: This week, paperwork was filed in court by the movie studio to dismiss this claim as an irrelevant third party statement. According to TF, Axanar has requested to obtain any communications the studios had with Justin Lin and J.J. Abrams over the issue but according to their lawyers, CBS and Paramount refused to hand anything over, claiming the information is irrelevant to the case. After the jump, see the e-mail.

game of thrones spinoff

We’ve got just two seasons left of Game of Thrones, with the eighth and final season set to air in 2018.

It’s just about finding the “right take.”  Read More »
