We’ve got some more details on Legendary and Universal’s new film Skull Island, and they’re awesome. Legendary made the surprise announcement at Comic Con, promising a film that delves into the location of King Kong’s origin. Now Tom Hiddleston is in talks to star in the picture, which will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer, You’re the Worst). More info is below.

We’re accustomed to thinking that any given sci-fi film is going to be mostly CG, perhaps thanks to the legacy left by the Star Wars prequels and many films that followed. But some still use a great deal of practical makeup and effects work. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy is one good example. The under-seen Edge of Tomorrow, from Doug Liman, is another. In the behind the scenes footage below you’ll see how Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt wore their bulky power suits during shooting, and how they threw themselves around the sets to create the film’s impressive battle sequences. Watching these Edge of Tomorrow practical effects is captivating enough that I’d love to see a cut of the film with all digital work removed. Read More »
We saw the two theatrical releases of Nymphomaniac Vol. 1 and 2 earlier this year from Lars von Trier, and you can watch them on Netflix now, too. But the “hardcore” and extended director’s cut of the full assembly is still to come, and now we’ve got an October date for the full five and a half hour version. The director’s cut will release day and date in theaters and on VOD in a number of different countries including the US. Read More »
In a detail-rich movie, one of the most crazy detailed bits of Guardians of the Galaxy was the Collector’s museum. Packed with relics from across the galaxy, I expect the Collector’s place is one of the first locations most fans will be excited to freeze-frame through one we have the film on blu. Before that disc release, we can see some alternate visions of the place thanks to a set of early Collector concept art. Read More »
Elisabeth Moss had two big films at Sundance this year: The One I Love, and Listen Up Philip. Here’s a new Listen Up Philip trailer, in which an angry and self-destructive author (Jason Schwartzman) strikes up a friendship with his literary idol (Jonathan Pryce) and falls even deeper into his own self-absorption. Which all sounds pretty dour, but word out of Sundance was that the film is very darkly funny, and terrifically acted. This trailer will probably give you that idea, too. Read More »
Very few people have seen footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there has, of course, been rampant speculation about what the film entails. Even a trailer won’t give away the full picture, so we’ll wait until May of next year for all the details. A new official Age of Ultron synopsis, however, now sums up the story nicely without giving too much away. There are, however, hints about the origin of Ultron, and what seems like a confirmation that Paul Bettany‘s character, Vision, is in fact an evolved version of his previous character Jarvis. (Which we’ve all known, but hasn’t been stated officially by Marvel or Bettany.) Read More »
Everyone loves a comedy reunion, it seems, and Vacation fans get a couple different versions. First there was that Old Navy ad campaign that brought Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, and Juliette Lewis back together to hawk trousers. Then there’s the new Vacation film that casts Ed Helms as the grown Griswold son, and will feature cameos from Chase and D’Angelo as the elder Griswolds. Now the two actors have a script commitment from ABC for the new comedy series that will cast them as a couple forced to raise their grandchildren. It’s not explicitly a Vacation TV reunion, but it’s close enough.
And while we’re at it, Leslie Mann is in talks to play Audrey Griswold in the new Vacation film. Read More »

If you need someone to play the wise old guy who teaches an up and coming hero how to kick ass, there’s good reason to turn to Scott Glenn. The producers of Marvel’s Daredevil have done so, and Glenn is now playing Stick, the mentor of Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) as he makes the transition to Daredevil. Because we don’t know much about the upcoming show at this point there’s little more to the report than that, but all the Scott Glenn Daredevil info we have is below. Read More »
