Men have got it tough. Seriously. There are so many movies making us look terrible. We look like bad guys. Like we’re stupid. Every single movie you can think of has a man in it who is evil or dumb. This is a problem that has to stop! There’s not a single movie out there with a man who is smart. Or a hero. Or depicting someone with morals. We’re always Darth Vader and Kevin James rolled into one and it’s not fair.
The biggest problem is this new Frozen movie. You know Frozen, that movie that came out in 2013 which Fox News says is new. Forget that part of the reason it was such a hit was the depiction of women as strong and independent. The real problem is the men of Frozen are stupid! What kind of message is that? This has to stop! Watch a hilariously off-base Fox News Frozen video below, in which the hosts seem to actually believe stuff like the sarcasm above. Read More »

That sound you heard last year was Jurassic Park fans screaming about the oddities in the Jurassic World trailer. Specifically, the fact Chris Pratt‘s character apparently has control of a pack of Velociraptors, those unstoppable, evil dinosaur from the first three movies. The Super Bowl trailer for the Colin Trevorrow film showed even more of this relationship, with Pratt’s character dinosaur whispering the dominant creatures (seen above).
Well, a Reddit user has pointed out the idea behind this relationship isn’t exactly new at all. In fact, it was in Michael Crichton‘s original Jurassic Park book, conveyed by a character we know for a fact is returning for Jurassic World. Read the quotes that tease the Jurassic World raptor squad below. Read More »

From the beginning, Fifty Shades of Grey provided Hollywood with a tricky conundrum: It’s a story that’s all about sex, being adapted by an industry that’s notoriously skittish about sex. Focus Features and director Sam Taylor-Johnson eventually split the difference by going with an R rating rather than the once-promised NC-17. But there’s still a lot of room for interpretation in that R rating. So just how much screwing is that, really?
The talk about Fifty Shades of Grey‘s sex scenes has been all over the map as Taylor-Johnson, author E.L. James, and their stars promote the movie. But now an unconfirmed report indicates that sex will comprise about 20 minutes of the film, or one-fifth of its 100-minute running time. More on the Fifty Shades of Grey sex scenes after the jump.

In Project Almanac, the “Primer meets Chronicle” found-footage teen time travel movie, the kids traveling back in time make some mistakes. Their real life counterparts have now made some mistakes too. In the film, there’s a plane crash caused by the time travel plot (that crash is in the trailer) and it seems director Dean Israelite may have used actual plane crash footage in the movie. Footage from a 1994 B-52 crash at Fairchild Air Force Base in Washington. The families of two of the victims, Col. Robert Wolff and Lt. Col. Mark McGeehan, noticed the footage, were obviously upset by it and complained. Now producer Michael Bay and his team have apologized and will cut the scene before the film’s January 30th release.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Long before American Sniper was nominated for six Oscars or grossed $100 million on its opening weekend, it was almost a very different movie. In the summer of 2013, Steven Spielberg was attached to direct the film based on the memoir of U.S. sniper Chris Kyle. Bradley Cooper was still attached to star and produce. However, after a few months of development, Spielberg dropped off the project. Director Clint Eastwood quickly jumped on and history was made.
So what was different about Steven Spielberg’s version of American Sniper? In a behind the scenes story about the movie, screenwriter Jason Dean Hall revealed some of the suggestions Spielberg made about the script and how they forced Warner Bros. to move in another direction. Read the Steven Spielberg American Sniper quotes below. Read More »
UPDATE: As expected, Sony denied this rumor. Disney wouldn’t comment. Read more below.
Today’s juicy rumor comes from the land of Marvel. We all know about the talks Sony and Marvel Studios had over the last year about what to do with Spider-Man. Marvel wanted him back. Sony was open to sharing after The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Both sides discussed it, but as far as we know an agreement could not be reached. The original plan was for the web-slinger to appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. For now, as far as we know, Spider-Man remains at Sony, maybe appearing in The Sinister Six or The Amazing Spider-Man 3, if those movies even happen.
Well, the latest rumor doesn’t know what’s happening with Spider-Man at Sony but believes the company was able to work out a deal with Marvel. But since Captain America: Civil War will be in production very soon, the next opportunity for the character to appear is Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018. Which, supposedly, is what’s going to happen. Read more about the Spider Man Avengers 3 rumor below. Read More »
Of the innumerable questions raised by the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber was right at the top. Fans were wowed by the visual power of the saber, which has a cross guard made of the same plasma as the primary blade, but immediately began questioning its functionality. Wouldn’t it cut off the user’s hands? Well, everyone up to and including Stephen Colbert came out to discuss the issue and most realized that it would be fine in the hands of a skilled swordsman.
Now, a new video has come to our attention that takes that proof a step further. A YouTube user named ThegnThrand created a mock version of the lightsaber, dipped the cross guard in paint, and did a full demonstration to prove not only is Kylo Ren safe with the lightsaber in hand, he has several advantages because of the additions. Check out the Episode 7 lightsaber video below. Read More »
Say the world “Tomorrowland” in the United States and most people immediately think of Disney. Walt Disney World and Disneyland are well-known for having areas called Tomorrowland; later this year, Disney will release a movie of the same title. The film is directed by Brad Bird, co-written by Damon Lindelof, and stars George Clooney. Watch the trailer here.
In other parts of the world, though, “Tomorrowland” has a different pop culture meaning, as the name is used for an electronic music festival that takes place in a few different countries. In the US, that festival is called “TomorrowWorld” because of Disney’s lock on the US trademark to “Tomorrowland.” But Disney doesn’t own that trademark everywhere, and it might force them to change the title in different countries.
