After the release of Man of Steel, some fans griped about the massive amount of seemingly careless destruction in the finale when Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) zoom around Metropolis, smashing into skyscraper after skyscraper. And this is all after the world engine has already done plenty of damage to the city as well.
Last winter we found out that those complaints would be addressed in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the level of destruction would actually be a major element in how the rest of the world views Superman, and more specifically, how Bruce Wayne views the new godlike hero. And because of that, Zack Snyder has defended the ending to those complains, and Ben Affleck has added another detail that fuels the fire between Batman and Superman.

Turns out Tatum has been learning some real card tricks in order to make his turn as Gambit all the more convincing. Find out more about the Channing Tatum card tricks after the jump! Read More »
Earlier this year, we learned that Jon Stewart would be leaving Comedy Central’s long-running news satire program The Daily Show. Comedy Central ran the gamut of talented comedians to replace Stewart on the show, including names like Chris Rock and Amy Poehler, before they picked correspondent Trevor Noah to take the gig.
However, one name that we didn’t hear about officially as a candidate was Amy Schumer, the comedienne who has skyrocketed to fame over the past few years thanks to her stellar sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer. It turns out Schumer was offered the job, but she actually ended up turning it down. Find out why Amy Schumer turned down The Daily Show after the jump! Read More »
The new Ghostbusters is officially filming in Boston today on its way towards a July 22, 2016 release date. We’ve heard a bunch about the plot of the movie, the characters, and even some of the supporting cast. Now the series’ primary mouthpiece, Dan Aykroyd, has dropped a cryptic tease. We know that this movie, directed by Paul Feig, is a total reboot from the original series, but apparently there will be a link between films old and new.

Thirty-five million dollars. That’s all that separates the worldwide grosses of the first Kick-Ass, and its sequel, Kick-Ass 2. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when neither gross is over $100 million, and each cost about $30 million to make, it’s a big percentage. Because of that, plans to continue the franchise either with a Kick-Ass 3 or Hit Girl spin-off have pretty much stalled. Fans still talk about the ideas, though, and so do the filmmakers.
Case in point: Kick-Ass director and sequel producer Matthew Vaughn. In a new interview, he suggests he’d like to do a Kick-Ass prequel, centering on Hit Girl and Big Daddy, as a palate cleanser leading to Kick-Ass 3. Sounds awesome right? Well series co-creator Mark Millar is less optimistic about those movies actually happening. Check out the Vaughn and Miller Kick-Ass prequel and sequel quotes below. Read More »

This weekend, when you sit down to see Inside Out, you’ll probably be a little too blown away to get up once the credits start to roll. And if you stay for the credits, you’ll notice Lorne Michaels and Saturday Night Live are given special thanks. Speaking to director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera, I asked why that was. The Inside Out team spent a week on the set of the show learning how seemingly spontaneous entertainment works for a specific sequence in the film.

As it stands right now, Captain America: Civil War will include every single Earth-bound superhero in the MCU minus two: Thor and Hulk. They’re even adding in the new people like Ant-Man. So why are those two characters not in the movie? Thor, at least, has a solo movie that should cover his absence but Hulk does not. Last we saw the mean, green machine he was in a S.H.I.E.L.D plane hoping to get lost from the world.
According to Mark Ruffalo, the actor behind Hulk, he hasn’t heard anything about the movie except from one person: Robert Downey Jr. Tony Stark himself told Ruffalo he was in Civil War, but Ruffalo says he hasn’t heard from anyone else beyond that. Read the Mark Ruffalo Captain America Civil War quotes and more below. Read More »
As if there were any doubt, Jurassic World dominated the box office this past weekend. However, the film has actually over-performed beyond what experts predicted.
Initially, the Jurassic Park sequel was predicted to land $155 million for the weekend. But the latest update pegs Colin Trevorrow‘s nostalgic dinosaur romp as grabbing over $204 million by the end of the weekend, making it the 2nd highest domestic box office debut of all-time, just behind The Avengers at $207.4 million. Marvel Studios might be getting a little nervous though, because some box office pundits are saying that by the time all the numbers come in officially on Monday morning, there’s a chance Jurassic World could top The Avengers and take the #1 spot.
In addition, Jurassic World also raked in over $511 million worldwide, making it the #1 global opening of all-time. And that kind of success means there will be more dinosaur mayhem on the way, and Chris Pratt is already signed on for the inevitable Jurassic World sequels. More after the jump! Read More »
