Just a few days before Christmas, the sci-fi adventure romance Passengers will hit screens, putting Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence at the center of a story that feels like Titanic in space. While we’ll have to wait a little longer to see this one, some members of the press have already seen the movie ahead of time, and the first Passengers reviews have started to hit the web.
While both Pratt and Lawrence get acclaim for their performances, the consensus seems to be that their talents are wasted on a movie that never quite reaches its full potential, seemingly because director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) doesn’t really know how to keep Jon Spaihts‘ script (which made the Black List years ago) as interesting as it should be on screen.

This past weekend brought Comic-Con Experience 2016 to Brazil, and with it came the debut of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer (which arrived online shortly thereafter for our viewing pleasure). But another Marvel Studios trailer was shown that we haven’t seen yet, and likely won’t see until next week when it debuts with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Spider-Man: Homecoming had the first trailer debut at CCXP 2016, and some details have been hitting the web since then. We don’t want to spoil anything for those who just want to wait to see it for themselves, but there is one detail worth mentioning regarding a Spidey suit upgrade that longtime webslinger fans will be happy to see Tom Holland wearing on the big screen.
Find out about the Spider-Man Homecoming suit upgrade after the jump, but beware that this detail is from the closing moments of the trailer, so don’t read if you don’t want to ruin the surprise. Read More »
When the reboot of Ghostbusters arrived this year, Sony Pictures was banking on the movie being successful enough to warrant a whole new franchise. They were confident that a sequel would happen, but the box office numbers indicated that might not be in the cards anymore. We know director Paul Feig is still hoping he gets to take a crack at a sequel, but there’s been no word on whether or not a sequel will actually happen. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t be getting more Ghostbusters movies in some form or another in the future.

At one time, there was a concept for a third Ghostbusters movie that would have taken the paranormal exterminators to an alternate version of Manhattan called Mahelltan, a dark twisted version of the New York borough. However, the Ghostbusters almost had another hellish encounter in the original movie from 1984.
There was once an idea for the ending of Ghostbusters to take Venkman, Ray, Egon and Winston to the gates of hell. Now fans can check out some of the concept art for this sequence that didn’t make the final cut of the movie, and was never actually even filmed. Read More »
Shortly after Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters hit theaters, one executive at Sony Pictures had no doubt that a sequel to the movie would come together. However, the tune behind the scenes appeared to change drastically about a month later as the theatrical release was winding down, and the box office numbers were not as high as the studio had hoped. A sequel was not looking likely.
At the time, one estimate indicated that Ghostbusters would need to make $300 million to break even, while another source said that estimation was way off and didn’t take into consideration all the money earned from “consumer products, gaming, location-based entertainment, continued international rollout, and huge third-party promotional partnerships.” Well, the movie ended up raking in just over $229 million at the box office, and while the call for a Ghostbusters reboot sequel hasn’t been made, Paul Feig is still hopeful that it will happen.

Ghostbusters just arrived on home video last week, and it came with the extended cut of the film that wasn’t seen in theaters. Word on the street is that the extra 15 minutes put back into the movie actually fixes many of the plot holes that remained in the theatrical cut, and it just might be worth watching. It probably won’t change the minds of those who flat out hated the theatrical cut already, but there you have it.
Now that the film is on home video, some of the outtakes are making their way online. There are actually two gag reels and six alternate take reels available in the special features, showing that Paul Feig shot a lot of footage for this movie. They’re all worth watching for some laughs, but easily the best one out of all of them are Kate McKinnon‘s Ghostbusters outtakes. They’re wacky, wonderful and just pure improvisational magic. Watch them below! Read More »
Anyone who keeps up with James Bond has probably heard the remark that Daniel Craig made during the publicity tour for Spectre last year regarding a preference for slitting his wrists instead of doing another movie as 007. However, this reaction came at a time of pure exhaustion after making the movie and being on a worldwide publicity tour for it. But that hasn’t stopped discussions of a potential replacement for the actor, though we’ve recently heard that Daniel Craig is still the first choice for playing the secret agent, even though the report of a $150 million offer was revealed to be bogus.
Now we finally have some recent thoughts on the matter from Daniel Craig, who was interviewed at The New Yorker Fest for the first time since his Spectre press tour. The discussion tackled a variety of topics from his acting career, but of course chatter inevitably turned to the likelihood of him returning for Bond 25. While he didn’t offer any solid answer one way or the other about putting the tuxedo on again, it’s clear that while everyone thought Daniel Craig hates James Bond, he still has a love for the franchise and character.
