Even though the early buzz on the Warcraft movie hasn’t been that great, that didn’t stop Halloween and Freaky Friday star Jamie Lee Curtis and her son from showing their excitement at the premiere. The mother-son duo showed up in full orc wardrobe, with Curtis dressed up as an orc shaman and her son Tom as an orc warrior. As you can see, we’re not just talking about throwing on some armor, but full face paint too.

Just over a week ago, a video from the production of Fast 8 featured nearly the entire cast of the action sequel on set, though not with all of them together. Now a new photo from Vin Diesel rounds up all the principal performers from the film directed by F. Gary Gray, including all the returning cast members and the new ones as well. It also gives us our first look at Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju in the film with that wild red beard of his intact. Check out the Fast 8 cast photo below. Read More »
Pacific Rim opened to mixed reviews and even more mixed box office back in 2013, barely scraping past $100 million at the domestic box office while finding far more success abroad. Those who love it really love it and those who hate it really hate it. I’m personally quite fond of the big, silly world director Guillermo del Toro crafted – even when the movie doesn’t quite work, this is a universe so full of concepts that deserve to be expanded upon and infinite possibilities for future stories. Even though del Toro is stepping away from the sequel and letting Steven S. DeKnight take the directorial reins, Pacific Rim 2 remains an intriguing prospect.
And it just got even more intriguing, because John Boyega has joined the cast as the son of Idris Elba‘s Stacker Pentecost. You know, the best character from the original film. The man with the instantly quotable speech about “canceling the apocalypse.”

Earlier this week we heard Universal Pictures had delayed Pitch Perfect 3 by five months, moving it from summer 2017 to Christmas. Now it appears some of that extra time will go toward finding a new director. Elizabeth Banks is no longer set to helm Pitch Perfect 3, although she will continue to serve as a producer as she did on the first two films. Read More »
It may only be June, but it’s going to take some damn good comedy to top the fits of laughter brought upon by Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. After The Lonely Island trio (Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer and Jorma Taccone) made a splash with their digital shorts on Saturday Night Live, it’s amazing it took them this long to put together a mockumentary following the rise and fall of a faux musician in the real world music industry. But for as long as it took, the hilarity delivered by Popstar makes it well worth the wait.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Lonely Island joined forces 15 years ago. Instead of waiting around and struggling to find work, the trio — Jorma Taccone, Andy Samberg, and Akiva Schaffer — began generating their own, which led to them working on Saturday Night Live. “Lazy Sunday,” “Dick in a Box,” “Laser Cats,” and their other digital shorts are some of SNL’s most memorable sketches from the past decade or so. The Lonely Island has always had a talent for music as well, a skill that’s on full display in their latest project, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
Samberg stars as Conner4Real, a pop star struggling with ego and failure, and Schaffer and Taccone co-star as his former bandmates. The trio co-wrote the film, and Schaffer and Taccone also co-directed. Taccone, whose last feature was MacGruber (he’ll make the sequel “before he dies,” he promised), was kind enough to discuss Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping with us.
Below, read our Jorma Taccone interview (minor spoilers are ahead).

A cappella fans are going to be left waiting a little bit longer for the Barden Bellas’ encore. Universal Pictures has delayed Pitch Perfect 3 by five months, moving it from summer 2017 to holiday 2017. That turns out to be good news for Regina Hall‘s new comedy Girl Trip, which will now take over Pitch Perfect 3‘s old spot.
Meanwhile over at Focus Features, Colin Trevorrow‘s follow-up to Jurassic World, Book of Henry, is now set to open this fall. Get details on the new Pitch Perfect 3 release date and more below. Read More »
Co-writer/director Duncan Jones‘ adaptation of Warcraft, Blizzard’s online role-playing game, is a huge movie that juggles multiple characters and storylines. But the two-hour fantasy film is arguably too brisk, and could use more breathing room to tell its ensemble story. An early cut of the movie was two hours and 40 minutes in length, and perhaps that extended version fleshed out certain side characters and conflicts — where the film is sometimes lacking, according to some of the early reviews.
Below, learn more about the Warcraft deleted scenes.

Even though Saturday Night Live is done until the new television season starts in the fall, this week we’re getting a big dose of comedy from some of the sketch show’s veteran performers and writers. The Lonely Island is bringing their music industry mockumentary Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping to theaters on June 3, and Universal Pictures is putting out everything they can to spread awareness.
Following the music video for “The Finest Girl” that was released during the season finale of Saturday Night Live, a new video featuring Andy Samberg as faux rapper Conner4Real has the artist doing a little freestyle song about just how weird he is. The weird things he does include using a banana as a phone and taking the middle seat on a plane. Watch the new Popstar music video after the jump. Read More »
