Jessica Jones images header - Krysten Ritter

The first Jessica Jones teaser released last week was fantastic — gorgeous, moody, mysterious, and even helpful, thanks to its release date reveal. But it didn’t actually show us much of the series itself. For that, we turn to the new batch of official images released today.

Krysten Ritter leads Netflix’s latest Marvel series as the titular character, whose short-lived stint as a superheroine has come to a tragic end. She tries to rebuild her life as a P.I. who specializes in cases involving superpowered people. The Jessica Jones images also reveal David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, and Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper. See them all after the jump.  Read More »

Star Wars AMC Theatres

With the arrival of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just a few months away, there will be plenty more Star Wars hype coming down the road. One thing that fans have been hoping for more than anything is the return of the original Star Wars trilogy to theaters to lead up to the release of The Force Awakens, and it looks like their wish may come true.

The movie theater chain AMC Theatres recently posted a Twitter update saying that fans would have the opportunity to see all six Star Wars movies in theaters again before The Force Awakens arrives, complete with a link that presumably went to a page where you could learn more about the marathon.

Update: Netflix and AMC have both responded to refute this rumor. More info below.

monty python and the holy grail blu-ray

Monty Python and the Holy Grail has been making us laugh, and prompting us to quote its absurd dialogue, for forty years. The 1975 release will enjoy a new anniversary blu-ray edition in October. One bit of packaging for the disc is meant to evoke one of the most ridiculous concepts in the movie — and that’s saying a lot when discussing this film.

The new Monty Python and the Holy Grail blu-ray will feature a working catapult — a tiny one, these people aren’t monsters, and the shipping for an actual war machine would be outrageous — that will fling appropriately-sized animal toys about your room.

Even better, there’s a video featuring the Monty Python crew (Terry Jones, Michael Palin, John Cleese, and Terry Gilliam, who is thankfully very much alive) playing with the modestly-sized weapon. The glee with which Michael Palin puts the catapult to work might be the best thing I’ve seen today.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Furious 7 deleted scene

For anyone who would like to argue against the idea that the Fast & Furious films are successful because they graft action movie setpieces to soap opera story concepts, I point to the Michelle Rodriguez character Letty Ortiz as Exhibit A.

So many classic soap opera plot ideas have been applied to Letty over the past four films that she’s basically a Cliffs Notes for any daytime TV series with the gumption to be on the air in 2015. Why watch Days of Our Lives now? Just check out Letty’s character arc, which has a bunch of car chases and punching as a bonus.

In the seventh film, Letty tries to deal with her amnesia (amnesia!) by running off to find her memories. She disappears from the movie for a while, but at least one scene was shot to show where Letty went. You can watch that Furious 7 deleted scene below, complete with a bonus appearance from Gal Gadot! Spoilers ahead for half of the films series, by the way. Read More »

Avengers Age of Ultron

While Avengers: Age of Ultron isn’t completely devoid of humor, there’s not a whole lot of time for jokes when everyone’s too busy trying to save the world. The making of Avengers: Age of Ultron, on the other hand, looks like a much more lighthearted affair, full of jokes, screw-ups, and general silliness. Watch the Avengers: Age of Ultron gag reel after the jump.
