Well, is it coming or what? Yes, Mallrats 2 is coming according to filmmaker Kevin Smith. The writer/director first teased the sequel on his Twitter before clarifying on his podcast. Now, he’s gone a step further and teased two key ingredients in the first film that could be back for the follow-up. They are Stan Lee, who played himself in the original, and Michael Rooker, who played the evil Mr. Svenning, father to Brandy, who married TS when Jaws popped out of the water.

Watching this weekend’s Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary show was like the TV version of Where’s Waldo. In every single crowd shot, you’d see the likes of Steven Spielberg and Michael Douglas; even in the skits, you never knew who could pop up, with people like Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper showing up.
Four women who were hard to miss were Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Each comedienne appeared on the show at least once, and some multiple times, making us laugh with their old characters, tributes to their favorite characters and even some current SNL goodness.
Of course, we mention them because those four women also comprise the core cast of Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters, which will hit theaters July 22, 2016. And for the first time since the film was announced, the four main actresses posed for a quick photo on social media. See the new Ghostbusters photo below. Read More »
Since 1977, fans have dreamt of visiting the world of Star Wars, of setting foot on the sands of Tatooine, the snow of Hoth or swamps of Dagobah. 99.9% of fans never get that chance, as production on the movies is so secretive. But a select few get to visit the set during filming. And for the shoot of The Empire Strikes Back, The Muppets made the trip. We know this because photos were taken. Photos that recently were posted on the Internet, finally becoming accessible to the entire world.
You get a hint above, but see the rest of the Muppets Empire Strikes Back photos below. Read More »
Director Scott Derrickson gave Marvel fans an early Christmas present late Sunday night when he posted an image that appears to be Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. It was accompanied by the quote “Strange but not a stranger,” from the Talking Heads song ‘Burning Down the House.’ Is it fan art? Is it official? Probably somewhere in the middle. But either way, it’s an endorsement from the director of the Phase Three film set for release November 4, 2016. Check out the mysterious Benedict Cumberbatch Doctor Strange image below. Read More »

One of the biggest mysteries at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy is the identity of Peter Quill’s father. He is obviously special, as it was his genes that helped Quill survive while holding an Infinity Gem. Going into the sequel, his identity will certainly be mentioned and one of the few people who knows the answer is James Gunn. The writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will soon write the script to the movie, set for release May 2017 and, in a new photo, he reveals a list of people who may or may not be Peter Quill’s father. It’s really funny. Check out the Peter Quill Father worksheet below. Read More »

The picture above isn’t a Halloween party shot; it’s a behind the scenes pic from James’ Franco‘s film adaptation of the novel Zeroville. And Seth Rogen isn’t really playing screenwriter and director John Milius. In fact, he’s playing a character called Viking Man… who is a very thinly-disguised representation of Milius. Zeroville features quite a few such figures. Some of the book’s characters are famous (Martin Scorsese is represented, for instance) while others are fairly obscure.
See the full Zeroville shot, complete with an appearance from Will Ferrell, below. Read More »
