They say any publicity is good publicity and, apparently, that’s even the case if your movie starts an International incident. Thanks to Sony’s delay of The Interview, interest in not only that film, but other similar ones, has risen exponentially. For example, Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s 2004 comedy Team America: World Police (which Paramount won’t let screen in the middle of this controversy) sold out on Amazon.com. Plus, though the large majority of people haven’t seen The Interview, tens of thousands of them have voted the film up on IMDB. At one point, it was an staggering 10 out of 10.

Director Scott Derrickson gave Marvel fans an early Christmas present late Sunday night when he posted an image that appears to be Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. It was accompanied by the quote “Strange but not a stranger,” from the Talking Heads song ‘Burning Down the House.’ Is it fan art? Is it official? Probably somewhere in the middle. But either way, it’s an endorsement from the director of the Phase Three film set for release November 4, 2016. Check out the mysterious Benedict Cumberbatch Doctor Strange image below. Read More »
Toys are a necessary part of blockbuster filmmaking, but they’re also the bane of its existence. On seemingly every single major Hollywood film, it’s the toys that reveal our first look at something major. For Jurassic World it was the D-Rex; for Transformers 4 it was Grimlock; the list goes on and on. It took longer than usual but the same thing has begun to happen for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. An image has appeared online that shows Finn, Rey, BB-8, Chewbacca and a mystery character that may or may not be Kylo Ren. However, an additional piece of concept art was released that almost certainly is Ren. Find out more about The Force Awakens toy leak below. Read More »
Audiences probably didn’t realize at the time, but Sergio Leone‘s 1966 western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was a landmark. It would become one of, if not the, iconic films in the careers of Leone, its stars Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef, composer Ennio Morricone as well as one of the most recognizable and imitated films in the Western genre.
All that makes it the perfect piece for a beautiful, limited edition poster, and Skuzzles is happy to oblige. The Canadian company has hired meticulous and lyrical artist JC Richard to do a beautiful screenprint of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which goes on sale December 23. We’re proud to exclusively debut The Good The Bad and The Ugly poster below. Read More »
2002 was the last time Mike Myers graced audiences with a new Austin Powers movie. Which means not only haven’t we seen the shagadellic super spy in over a decade, we haven’t seen his sworn enemy Dr. Evil, either.
Most would agree that it was Evil who really became the break out character of the series. His hairless cat, rebellious son and ludicrous demands were just some of the hilarious running jokes the character provided. Even so, no one who turned on their TV Saturday night would have expected to see him in anything but an Austin Powers rerun. But they caught him on NBC.
During the cold open of the Amy Adams-hosted Saturday Night Live, alum Myers, as the evil dictator, hijacked the skit. And what did the would-be power monger want? To talk about the Sony Hack, North Korea and The Interview, of course. Check out the Dr. Evil SNL video below. Read More »

Star Wars is one of those franchises where almost nothing you discover about it is new. Whether it be a cool inside fact, image, or whatever, odds are it’s been out there years, possibly decades. Maybe it’s new to you but the franchise has been so closely followed for so many years, it would be very rare to find something genuinely new in relation to the original or prequel trilogies.
That’s a preamble to say the following video is not necessarily a new discovery. It was recently uploaded, and I’ve never seen it before. But Star Wars fans are so crazy, maybe some of you have. The video is about six minutes of B-roll footage from the set of the original 1977 Star Wars. That means the footage is almost 40 years old. And it’s incredible. It’s George Lucas, Mark Hamill and Garrick Hagon (who played Luke’s best friend Biggs) shooting a scene that’s not in the movie. It’s just raw footage of people walking around the set. Check out the Star Wars behind the scenes footage below. Read More »
