kingsman 2 details

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the more pleasant surprises of 2014, a darkly comedic riff on spy movie archetypes that took a swing at every single possible target and still managed to become a surprise box office smash. We’ve known that a sequel was in the works for some time now, but now star Taron Egerton has spoken about the next film from the Sundance Film Festival, where his new movie, Eddie the Eagle, played as a secret screening. And if you thought the first Kingsman was gnarly and offensive and insane while being predominately set in a single country, he’s got news for you: part two is going international.

Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant (header)

The Revenant may have had a tough shoot – have you heard about that yet? – but all the tough work is paying off. Not only did the epic revenge tale score 12 Oscar nominations, it’s also playing well with critics and audiences. Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s picture is a success and, more than that, a technical marvel. We already shared about 45 minutes worth of behind-the-scenes footage from the film, but you can now also watch Iñárritu deconstruct an intense scene from The Revenant below.

The Martian Visual Effects

Out of all the Best Picture nominees, The Martian is probably the most easily accessible for general audiences. It’s fun, dramatic, has a simple story, a great cast and just works. Mad Max: Fury Road is a close second, but it’s definitely far too weird for your grandparents who would probably love The Martian.

Following the Oscar nominations, studios are starting to put out more featurettes to take people behind the scenes of the movie vying for the big prize this year. This time it’s The Martian visual effects taking the spotlight with a reel that shows off just what was real on the film that stranded Matt Damon on Mars, and what wasn’t You might be surprised to see what was practical and what wasn’t.

Making of The Revenant

Not too long ago, we featured a batch of nine featurettes from the Golden Globe-winning, Oscar-nominated frontier epic The Revenant, each diving in to nearly every facet of production. And now to keep those with questions about the making of The Revenant satisfied, 20th Century Fox has released a 45-minute documentary that shines some light (only natural though) on the shooting process. It’s a fantastic glimpse behind the scenes. Read More »

independence day resurgence moon base

One of the most interesting aspects of Independence Day: Resurgence is how this sequel is making it very clear that the original film wasn’t just made in 1996 – it took place in 1996. The new film takes place in 2016, twenty years after the release of Independence Day for real audiences and twenty years after that gigantic alien invasion that killed millions of people for the characters in the film. However, their 2016 is not our 2016. It’s different world altogether, an alternate science fiction timeline that saw world history go in a very different direction than our own. A lot of crazy stuff happened.

Like Jeff Goldblum‘s David Levinson helping found a moon base in 2009, which was revealed in a fun new image.

first deadpool clip

The first Deadpool clip has arrived and it’s probably not what you’d expect. The red-suited “merc with a mouth” is nowhere to be seen. There are no edged weapons or firearms. The wisecracks are few. There’s not even a single drop of blood! However, we do get Ryan Reynolds‘ Wade Wilson and Morena Baccarin‘s Vanessa Carlysle having a sweet little scene that seemingly exists just so it can climax with two out-of-nowhere dirty jokes, one of which involves (pixelated) Ryan Reynolds nudity.

Check out the clip, and Ryan Reynolds’ posterior, below.

Deadpool Review

It’s hard to believe, but we’re just a little under three weeks away from finally see the Deadpool movie that fans were hoping to get for years. Ryan Reynolds is playing the version of the Merc with the Mouth that he should have been in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and fans who attended a couple of advanced screenings a few days ago had a lot of good things to say. Now the comic character’s creator, Rob Liefeld, has chimed in with his two cents on chimichanga champ, and he couldn’t be happier.

Plus, there’s also a Deadpool promotional video that has Ryan Reynolds helping to celebrate Australia Day. Though he does seem to take issue with Australia giving us Wolverine, or rather Hugh Jackman. Read More »

die heard

What’s with all the origin stories these days? Are audiences asking for them? Do studios think movie fans want their favorite characters demystified and explained to death? Isn’t a character’s behavior enough to illustrate where they’ve been and what they’ve seen? Apparently not, which is why we hear so much news about origin stories and prequels. One of the most notable “untold stories” we’ll see soon is Die Hard Year One, a prequel/sequel fans have been weary of ever since it was announced.

Below, director Len Wiseman explains his approach to the Die Hard prequel.
