Anyone who has ever read Sandman, the genre-bending comic written by Neil Gaiman, has probably thought about the idea of Tom Hiddleston as Morpheus, the title character and personification of Dream. While there was a point where Neil Gaiman was pushing forward the idea of Benedict Cumberbatch as Morpheus, now that the actor is locked into Doctor Strange he’s probably out of the running for any other comic book role. But “Hiddleston is still out there,” as Gaiman said when giving a semi-annual update on the project. Read More »

Columbia Pictures has released five new teaser posters for the upcoming Chris Columbus video game sci-fi comedy Pixels. The plot of the movie is about a group of video game experts who are recruited by the military to fight 1980s-era video game characters attacking our planet. Its been pitched as Ghostbusters, but with classic 80′s video game creatures instead of ghosts. And yes, I’ve actually been hearing good buzz from some people in the know. Until now we’ve only seen photos of the main cast: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage (who looks to be playing a send-up of King of Kong’s Billy Mitchell). But these Pixels posters give us our first look at the video game baddies that will be attacking our planet in this film. Hit the jump to get a close up look at Pac-man, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong and Centipede in the first Pixels posters — which are very cool looking.

It seems kind of appropriate that Cinderella should be getting a makeover, since the story itself hinges on a makeover. Disney is the fairy godmother in this case, wielding magic instead of CG and turning Cinderella from a 60-year-old animated feature into a brand-new live-action fantasy.
Of course, in Cinderella’s case the transformation undeniably changes her life for the better. It’s less clear why Cinderella really needed to be retold (aside from the obviou$), but at least this new version looks pretty. Hit the jump to watch the new Cinderella international trailer starring Cate Blanchett, Lily James, and Richard Madden. Read More »
In all the excitement over the past few weeks, be it Star Wars trailers, Jurassic World trailers, the holidays or major studio leaks, it’s almost hard to believe 2015 is nearly upon us. It should be an excellent year filled with blockbusters the likes of which we have never seen. As time moves on though we’re going to be seeing lots and lots more of those blockbusters and, now, you can finally analyze Tony Stark’s new armor in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
This Age of Ultron Iron Man suit comes courtesy of everyone’s favorite high end collectible company, Hot Toys. They’ve released a ton of images of the Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man Mark XLIII suit which even comes with an Ultron accessory.
Check out the Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man suit below. Read More »

Phil Lord and Chris Miller have built up so much goodwill at this point, they could probably get audiences to watch anything. But even they may be testing their limits with MoonQuake Lake, a third-rate Twilight knockoff starring Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Rihanna.
Or rather, they might be pushing it if MoonQuake Lake were a real film instead of a pitch-perfect sendup of the fantasy YA subgenre. It’s the best joke from Annie, the new musical by Will Gluck. Watch Lord and Miller’s MoonQuake Lake trailer — and their tongue-in-cheek reaction to the film’s Golden Globes snub — after the jump. Read More »
The Sony hack has taught us many things. On the movie side, it has taught us that Sony really does care about Spider-Man. They might not know what to do with him but there’s no doubt everyone is looking at every possible option for the character. You’ve probably already read a bit about the Sony talks with Marvel to get the character to appear in Captain America: Civil War, or of a possible animated movie by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, or of Marvel’s desire to recast Andrew Garfield. Now a few more details have leaked.
Turns out, the discussions with Marvel went a little deeper than we initially thought, with many different angles examined about how that marriage could work. Plus, there was a major internal discussion about how they could possibly reboot the franchise for a third time, avoiding the origin story and maybe even adapting one of the most popular Marvel Comics Spider-Man stories of all time.
Below, read the latest on plans to possibly reboot Spider-Man again. Read More »
