avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

David Ayer Reflect on Suicide Squad

It’s no secret that Suicide Squad received some pretty harsh reviews. Even people who enjoyed the film had some problems with key parts in it, especially when it comes to the logic of the story and how some characters were mishandled. But hey, no film is perfect.

Thankfully, director David Ayer has come forth and admitted that Suicide Squad does indeed have flaws. Furthermore, he elaborates that he would have done plenty of things differently if he made the movie today, knowing what he knows now. That includes one drastic change for how Jared Leto as The Joker was used.

M Night Shyamalan trilogy

UPDATE: Shyamalan has confirmed his plans to make a trilogy and we’ve added the new details below.

Now that some of you’ve seen Split this past weekend, we can now talk more openly about its third act and, more specifically, its fantastic ending. Are those last few minutes more than a wink and a nod? Will we see a payoff to Split‘s ending? If writer-director M. Night Shyamalan has his druthers, possibly.

Below, learn more about a possible M. Night Shyamalan trilogy (Split SPOILERS follow).

logan different universe

UPDATE: The MPAA has officially given Logan an R-rating. We have added the details below.

Readers of the X-Men comics have gotten used to the concept of alternate timelines and diverging universes where familiar characters take on unfamiliar existences and events that would never happen in actual canon totally happen. The famous Old Man Logan storyline, one of the building blocks for director James Mangold‘s Logan, is one of those stories, taking place in a dystopian future where the villains have won and Wolverine attempts to survive in a world without heroes.

So it’s only appropriate that Hugh Jackman, set to play the adamantium-clawed hero for the ninth (and supposedly final) time on screen, says that Logan takes place in an alternate universe that is not beholden to the rules and continuity of the other X-Men movies.

Saturday Night Live La La Land Sketch

Every weekend that there’s a new episode of Saturday Night Live, we have a recap and review of every sketch from the show from yours truly. However, since I’m currently in Park City, Utah with our own Peter Sciretta and Angie Han covering the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, it just wasn’t possible to make it happen this weekend. But there was still one sketch that we couldn’t resist pointing out.

La La Land has plenty of buzz right now, especially after winning a record-setting number of Golden Globes earlier this month. However, the movie that started off by being endlessly praised is already getting some backlash from those who don’t like it as much as its most passionate supporters and fans. One of those people who didn’t fall for La La Land as hard as people like me was this past weekend’s SNL host Aziz Ansari, and gets a pretty intense police interrogation because of it.

Power Rangers Opening Credits Mash-Up

Last week, we finally got a proper look at the new Power Rangers movie coming to theaters in a couple months in the form of a full trailer. New footage included all of the teenagers with attitude in action, in their power suits, and in their Zords. It certainly has a new tone and style for the property that became popular back in the 1990s, feeling right in line with something like the Transformers franchise.

It remains to be seen whether adults who were once fans of the show will seek out this movie for the sake of nostalgia, or if they’ll only be going because their kids are dragging them to it. In the meantime, those who grew up loving the first iteration of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be pleased to see a nicely done mash-up that takes footage from both of the Power Rangers trailers, and brings it together in the style of the opening credits of the original show.

Han Solo and Jabba the hutt

A few weeks ago it was revealed that Woody Harrelson would be joining the cast of Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s Star Wars standalone movie focusing on the origin story of Han Solo. At the time we had a few guesses as to who the Oscar-nominated actor might be playing, and now Woody has seemingly confirmed that he will be playing Garris Shrike in the second Star Wars Story…. or did he? Let’s hear what he said after the jump.

split ending

It should come as no surprise that M. Night Shyamalan‘s Split features a big twist. It’s kind of his thing. Everyone, even his fans, has poked fun at his penchant for Big Shocking Reveals, some of which work as stunning reversals and some of which fall flat on their face. The twist in Split is a weird one – for every person who sees it and loses their goddamn mind, there will be someone who has no idea what the hell just happened.

In other words, it’s the kind of thing that demands to be discussed. Huge spoilers ahead. Seriously. If you haven’t seen Split yet, I’d suggest not reading on.
