2016 Ghostbusters LEGO

The Ghostbusters reboot/remake, or whatever you want to call it, is coming this summer. We already know there’s plenty of merchandising coming for the new movie because director Paul Feig already showed off some Ghostbusters action figures of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. But I don’t think anyone was expecting this yet.

Ghostbusters fans were rather pleased to get a LEGO set commemorating the titular paranormal exterminators and their iconic car, the revamped classic ambulance known as the Ecto-1. The vehicle got a pretty sweet companion set in the form of the Ghostbsuters’ firehouse this year, and now they’ll both have some company in the form of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters.

The first photos of the set featuring the team’s new vehicle and some awesome minifigures have been revealed and you can see them below. But beware, because one piece of the set gives away a bit of a spoiler. Read More »

the brothers grimsby clips

The Brothers Grimsby, or Grimsby, depending on which side of the Atlantic you call home, certainly sounds amusing enough. Mark Strong is England’s top spy, an unstoppable James Bond type with all of the skills you’d find in a movie action hero. Sacha Baron Cohen is his loser brother, a disgusting soccer hooligan. Naturally, the two of them are thrust together to save the world from a villainous plot of some kind. But in terms of execution… Well, let’s just say that the marketing hasn’t been particularly inspiring.

Sony has released a batch of new clips from the film, as well as a few “red band TV spots” (how is that a thing?), to promote the film’s U.K. release. Hence the Grimsby instead of The Brothers Grimsby. You can check them out below, if that sounds like your kind of thing.

descender screenwriter

Over the past few years, I’ve watched my weekly comic book purchases change in some very telling ways. As my subscriptions to Marvel and DC books declined, I found myself reading more creator-owened series and the current king of that landscape is Image Comics. Which means I’ve been reading a ton of stuff with Image’s name on it and I’ve discovered countless engrossing and unique comic series that simply couldn’t exist under the “big two.”

One of those comics is Descender, a wonderful new-ish science fiction series from writer Jeff Lemire and artist Dustin Nguyen. Sony picked up the film rights one year ago and now they’ve finally tasked a writer with transforming the comic into a screenplay.

ghostbusters cast images

And like that, the Ghostbusters marketing engine starts to lurch into motion.

Director Paul Feig‘s instantly controversial (for the right and wrong reasons) remake hasn’t been completely shy – we’ve seen several images of the new Ghostbusters in their snazzy new uniforms as well as a handful of character posters. However, a new batch of cast pictures, including our first official look at Chris Hemsworth as the team’s secretary, have arrived and the film’s official website has launched and a rough release date for the first trailer has been revealed. We’re a little over five months away from this movie hitting theaters and Sony is about to make sure you and everyone else is aware of it.

Spectre Honest Trailer

Though James Bond fans were excited to see what director Sam Mendes did with Spectre after knocking Skyfall out of the park back in 2012, plenty were disappointed when the film finally hit theaters last fall. While this writer didn’t find the film to be downright terrible, mostly enjoying the throwback elements of the story and villain being utilized, the film certainly lacked the kind of punch you hope to get from a 007 adventure.

Now, the Spectre Honest Trailer really sticks it to the movie, calling it “Bond-by-the-numbers,” which is pretty hard to argue with. Plus there’s a great reference to the Nintendo 64 video game Goldeneye. Read More »

Angry Birds Movie Trailer

Even though the movie is called The Angry Birds Movie, based on the popular mobile game of the same name, it looks like there’s really only one angry bird here. Red, a bushy-eyebrowed bird with a temper problem, is voiced by Jason Sudeikis. While his anger seems to be giving him some grief in everyday life, his short fuse also seems to be the only thing that allows him to see that the recently arrived green pigs are out to steal their eggs. And if you’ve been waiting to see some birds in a slingshot in this movie, the new Angry Birds Movie trailer should do the trick. Read More »
