Even though the television series Agents of SHIELD takes place in the Marvel cinematic universe, there has still be a significant disconnect between the Marvel Studios show on ABC and their feature films. The biggest piece of evidence pointing to a lack of cooperation between the two Marvel entities is the fact that Agents of SHIELD probably won’t cross over with the Inhumans movie (which has been pulled from Marvel’s schedule, but will still get made eventually), even though they share an entire species of superpowered characters from Marvel Comics. And it sounds like one of Marvel’s TV stars is a bit annoyed by that.

Shane Black‘s newest film, The Nice Guys, opens in theaters this weekend. Black’s third directorial effort is opening up against Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Angry Birds, a sequel and an animated feature based on a video game. The Nice Guys is one of the few original studio films coming out this summer, but that’s not the only reason to go out and support Black’s picture. It has everything you want from the writer and director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang: two charismatic leading men, genuine heart, some unexpected turns, and plenty of jokes that pay off wonderfully. The Nice Guys is simply top-notch R-rated entertainment. Make sure to see it this weekend, and then, if you’re a fan of the film, maybe you’ll still even have time to purchase The Nice Guys Mondo poster.
Check out prints for Shane Black’s buddy comedy, The Twilight Zone, and Pinocchio below.

The Nice Guys has a lot going for it. It’s got a A-list pairing in Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, and the verve and style of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3 mastermind Shane Black. Oh, and it’s really, really good — a lovable mix of cynicism and sincerity, dropped against a cool ’70s noir backdrop and liberally sprinkled with humor and charisma. What it doesn’t have going for it, however, is a recognizable brand name. It’s not a sequel to an already-beloved movie, like Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising or Captain America: Civil War. It’s not even based on a phenomenally popular property from another medium, like The Angry Birds Movie.
So what are these schmucks to do? In a field like that, how is a scrappy little action-comedy like The Nice Guys supposed to compete? That’s exactly what Nice Guys producer Joel Silver would like to know, as he loudly (and hilariously) rants to Gosling and Crowe in a meta bit of The Nice Guys marketing. They don’t really come up with any good answers, but it sure is fun to watch them try. Read More »
With all the reboots, remakes and sequels out there, it’s no secret that Hollywood is hurting for original ideas. Of course, as long as audiences keep turning up for the same recycled junk, that’s exactly what they’re going to get. In fact, Hollywood has become so methodical with their approach to movies that even all the movie trailers are the same.
A new video runs through 11 different ways that show how movie trailers are the same. As you’ll see, it’s not just superhero movies or even just blockbusters that make us feel like we’re suffering from deja vu. Even trailers for indies, dramas and specifically Woody Allen movies all have their own tropes. Find out how all movie trailers are the same after the jump. Read More »
