Complete with the James Gunn seal of approval, the How It Should Have Ended crew has taken on Guardians of the Galaxy.
It’s a good thing Gunn liked it, too, because the video points out several instances in the film where things could have logically gone a very different way. The result is one of the longest How It Should Have Ended videos yet, but one with tons of jokes and references. Those are aimed not only at the film, but at the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and other comic book series. There are even some cameos from characters from Star Wars, Harry Potter and more.
It’s a hilarious, clever, and well made video that’s worth checking out. Below, watch how Guardians of the Galaxy should have ended. Read More »

My first memory as a human being is of The Last Starfighter. I was four years old, sitting in the back seat of my mom’s old station wagon at the Middletown Drive-In, and poof. My first memory is looking up at the screen and seeing Nick Castle‘s exciting and awesome sci-fi film.
If you haven’t seen The Last Starfighter, you’re missing a movie that was about 30 years ahead of its time. In it, a young human named Alex (Lance Guest) is recruited by an alien race to fight a war to save the universe. How is he recruited? Because he’s the best person in the world at a video game called Starfighter.
With video games more popular than ever, the idea of an alien race using them to recruit sounds like an incredibly modern idea. So why not reimagine The Last Starfighter in a modern context? YouTube user Tim Gonzales did just that. Below, watch the modernized Last Starfighter trailer. Read More »

The number one question fans have been asking over the past few weeks is when we’ll see a trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That mystery may have now have an answer. One site has heard multiple reports, including one from the film’s assistant director, that it’ll be released with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which opens December 17. That would give Star Wars three straight December events on the same weekend from 2014-2016. Read More »
Joke all you want about Hayden Christensen‘s performances in the Star Wars prequels, but the guy has some chops. Sure, those two films weren’t great, but around the same time he crushed Life as a House and Shattered Glass, two highly underrated films. Since then he hasn’t exactly stayed in the spotlight, choosing to only do movies every few years. In part because of good will generated by those two indie roles, it’s always great to see him.
His latest role is in American Heist, where Christensen plays the brother of Oscar-winner Adrien Brody. Brody plays a hardened criminal who coaxes his rehabilitated brother (Christensen) to do one more big job. It’s a familiar set up to be sure, but with co-stars Jordana Brewster and Akon, there’s a distinct Fast and Furious vibe to this one. Check out the American Heist trailer below. Read More »
Look, there are some great sequels coming out in 2015: Star Wars, The Avengers, Jurassic Park, The Terminator… the list goes on and on. But none of those will have synchronized dancing, a capella covers of pop songs, or Anna Kendrick. Those elements put the sequel to Pitch Perfect right up there on my must-see list.
Pitch Perfect 2, directed by Elizabeth Banks, opens May 15. The first trailer will be out Thursday, after it debuts at nationwide Pitch Perfect Sing-a-Long screenings Wednesday. In anticipation, a great teaser poster has been revealed. Check out the Pitch Perfect 2 poster below. Read More »
Awesome Mix Volume 1 did quite well for the Guardians of the Galaxy. Not only did it inspire the team on screen, it inspired tons of sales off screen, becoming the first soundtrack filled only with catalog songs to hit #1 on the Billboard charts. Volume 2 popped on quickly at the end of the film, too. But what is the Awesome Mix Volume 0? Director James Gunn revealed the playlist on his Facebook. It’s an eclectic mix of high-energy songs that were used in the Boot of Jemiah bar scenes on Nowhere to keep the extras hyped up.
Below, listen to all the songs from the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Volume 0.

What a long, strange trip it’s been for Batman on the big screen. There was the 1966 movie based on the TV show. Tim Burton’s 1989 hit, which lead us to the wild Joel Schumacher films. Christopher Nolan then took over and turned it into Oscar-bait and in a few years, not only will Batman fight Superman and join the Justice League, he’ll be the star of his own Lego movie.
That’s a whole lot of material to work with for writer Seth Grahame-Smith and director Chris McKay, who are making the Lego Batman Movie spinoff set for release in 2017. According to producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord, they will acknowledge it all. Read the quote below. Read More »
