Last week, a limited collector’s edition release of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies was revealed on Amazon. The set features the extended editions of all six films from director Peter Jackson in an impressive display of faux leather-bound books with all the bonus features you’d ever want. At the time, we only had one image of the set, but now you can get a closer look at it.
Dominic Monaghan played Meriadoc Brandybuck (aka Merry) in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and it appears he was the cast member with an open enough schedule to be able to record an unboxing video that shows us just how cool a set this is. However, it still may not be worth the price tag, especially because this may not exactly be the set that Peter Jackson truly wants fans to have. Find out more below. Read More »
It’s no secret that James Bond is a a super misogynistic character. He’s a womanizing spy in every single one of his big screen adventures, and even Daniel Craig has pointed this very fact out before. When asked what we can learn from James Bond, Craig quite bluntly said, “Nothing. Let’s not forget that he’s actually a misogynist. A lot of women are drawn to him chiefly because he embodies a certain kind of danger and never sticks around for too long.”
That’s something that’s never been subtle in the James Bond franchise as everyone expects him to make a double entendre about sex while speaking to any of the Bond girls hired for a particular movie. Even the opening credits sequences are full of visuals that serve as not-so-subtle metaphors for sex, as one video hilariously lays out in the most obvious way after the jump. Read More »
Both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies have seen multiple releases on home video. In fact, I’ve lost count of just how many different home video releases there have been of Lord of the Rings. But now the definitive collection of all six extended cuts of Peter Jackson‘s Middle Earth films is coming this fall, and it’s undoubtedly the one box set to rule them all.

It’s hard for anyone except the producers and accountants of a blockbuster movie to know what the million-dollar budgets are spent on. Recently we learned roughly how much the crew of a hypothetical $200 million movie makes, but there are plenty more costs than the salaries of those working on the movie. In fact, the James Bond flick Skyfall is rumored to have had a surprising cost in post-production thanks to some leather gloves purchased by Daniel Craig.

The future of James Bond is up in the air. Rumors have been swirling that Daniel Craig really doesn’t want to come back for another mission as 007, and after his blunt comments indicating distaste for playing the iconic spy from the press tour for Spectre, that wouldn’t be a surprise. In the wake of those rumors, there have been reports of actors like Jamie Bell and Tom Hiddleston being in talks with producers to take the role. But one of those seems a little less likely now.
Tom Hiddleston already has a key role in the Marvel cinematic universe as Thor’s villainous brother Loki, and there are plenty of fans clamoring to see him throw on a tuxedo to play James Bond. However, while appearing at Wizard World Philadelphia recently, Hiddleston didn’t seem optimistic of his chances to play the secret agent. Read More »
During the press rounds for the last James Bond installment, Spectre, Daniel Craig didn’t sound enthusiastic about the prospect of playing the iconic spy again. Physically, it’s an exhausting role, and considering how long these films take to make, it’s understandable the actor has been cautious about returning to the role, despite being under contract for one more sequel.
Recently we’ve heard more rumors insisting the actor is finished with the character. Now, another rumor has cropped up, claiming that Jamie Bell (Turn: Washington’s Spies) has had discussions about playing the new James Bond.

Before composer James Horner tragically passed away last summer, he was working on a gift for filmmaker Antoine Fuqua. Last year, Fuqua and Horner collaborated on the boxing drama, Southpaw, and the two had discussed reuniting for the upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven. Without seeing any footage — or really discussing the potential score with Fuqua, either — Horner went ahead and starting composing music for the film, much to Fuqua’s surprise. The composer’s generosity didn’t stop there, either, as he paid to put the score together himself and, according to Fuqua, he was the one that convinced him he had to make The Magnificent Seven.
Below, learn more about James Horner’s The Magnificent Seven score and how he encouraged The Equalizer director to move forward with the remake.
