This Is The End is one of those comedies you can watch again and again. Each scene is filled with so much madness you’re bound to find new nuance each time you revisit it. But a few of the film’s surprises will play best the first time. One in particular is so out of left field, it’s almost unbelievable when you see it.
So, when I talked to Jay Baruchel about the film (read the full interview here) I simply had to ask him his thoughts about this spoiler. He explained that, even though it’s ridiculous, “our tongues are nowhere near our cheeks at all.” Everybody, read what he had to say below. Major spoilers follow. Read More »

As superhero nation flocks to theaters this weekend to see Man of Steel, everyone is going to be talking about what’s next. How is Warner Bros. going to continue expanding the DC Universe? What bits of this film foreshadow that expansion? And what steps will be taken to eventually get to the Justice League?
None of those questions can be fully answered yet, but screenwriter David Goyer has provided some clues.

When two of the most successful and revered filmmakers of all time have trouble getting their movies made, you know the system is broken. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were among the speakers at a University of Southern California event this week and both addressed the sad state of business in Hollywood, with Spielberg predicting an inevitable “implosion.”
There’s eventually going to be an implosion — or a big meltdown. There’s going to be an implosion where three or four or maybe even a half-dozen megabudget movies are going to go crashing into the ground, and that’s going to change the paradigm.
Spielberg and Lucas cited the fact they both struggled mightily to get Lincoln and Red Tails into theater because the ideas weren’t traditional or easily marketable. Lincoln, apparently, was “this close” to becoming an HBO project according to Spielberg, and Lucas thinks TV is “more adventurous.” Read more and check out a video below. Read More »

A monkey wrench has been thrown into our collective understanding of what Marvel has in store for Phase Two. We’ve seen what Tony Stark is up to in Iron Man 3; we have an idea what Thor will tackle in Thor: The Dark World; and Captain America is currently working his butt off filming Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Next up is 2014′s James Gunn film Guardians of the Galaxy, which starts shooting in England this Summer, followed by Joss Whedon‘s sequel The Avengers 2 in 2015. Many assumed whatever happens with Gunn’s team of galactic superheroes would dovetail into what happens with Whedon’s team on Earth. Well, that might not be the case, according to Whedon. A new quote suggests the Guardians will not appear in The Avengers 2. Read More »
So we’re at this haunted hospital and James Wan says Insidious Chapter 2 will include time travel. It’s a mind-bending piece of information that potentially changes the whole nature of the upcoming sequel.
But taking a cue from that nugget, let’s jump ahead in time to today as a new teaser poster has been revealed for the horror sequel, which opens on Friday the 13th of September. The poster features a small child ominously in the middle of a room with the tagline “It Will Take What You Love Most.” Chilling.
Patrick Wilson, Barbara Hershey, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins and the rest of the cast return for Insidious Chapter 2, which picks up immediately where the 2010 hit left off. A trailer was released last week and, as part of that reveal, I was ushered to the haunted Linda Vista Community Hospital in Los Angeles to check it out. That’s where Wan talked about time travel and a few other pieces of information regarding the sequel. So check out the poster and read what he had to say below. Read More »

In addition, he talked about his number one goal with the film, which is to “honor” the franchise but not “revere” it. Read his quotes below. Read More »

When an actor says they’re excited about a movie, it’s difficult to trust them completely. Maybe they’re being honest. Or, maybe, they’re just saying what needs to be said to get asses in the seats. On occasion though, you talk to an actor and they speak with such genine enthusiasm and passion, it’s impossible not to believe them. That’s what happened when I asked Jay Baruchel about How to Train Your Dragon 2.
Baruchel, who stars in the hilarious June 12 comedy This Is The End, lit up and gushed when asked for an update on the animated sequel, which is scheduled for release just over a year from now. He said while he thinks the first one is “one of the greatest flicks ever” he believes “we smoke the first one with number two.” Read his full quote below. Read More »
