The Sony Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 could more appropriately have been titled “Goosebumps.” After a super-short mention of the upcoming Chris Columbus film Pixels, author R.L. Stine popped on screen to tell fans about Goosebumps, which opens in Summer 2015. Director Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) showed up for the panel, along with star Jack Black, a mere two days after they wrapped production. The pair debuted some new footage and news regarding the meta storyline of the film, in which the characters from all of Stine’s Goosebumps books escape the original manuscripts.
Below, read more about the Goosebumps movie trailer and panel from San Diego Comic-Con.

Ever since the release of the popular ’90s cartoon, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were characterized as party guys. They were a wild bunch of teenagers who loved pizza and music, who just happened to be both ninjas and turtles. In 1991, the group was forever linked to pop rap thanks to Vanilla Ice. At the climax of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, then super-popular rapper was featured with a song called “Ninja Rap.” Almost 25 years later, the song endures as a guilty pleasure and a window into a very specific moment in pop culture.
So it makes perfect sense (maybe? sort of?) that the filmmakers want their very own rap anthem for the new, rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That song is now out. It’s called “Shell Shocked” and its by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign featuring Kill The Noise & Madsonik. Does it reach the status of “Ninja Rap?” Listen to the new Ninja Turtles rap below.

James Franco directed an adaption of the Cormac McCarthy novel Child of God, which opens in some theaters on August 1. But Franco also wanted to adapt McCarthy’s novel Blood Meridian, and even Franco admits the book seems like an “un-filmable” novel. That didn’t stop him from trying, and a few years ago Franco shot a test reel for the project. This 25-minute reel features characters from the novel that fans will very much recognize. Notably, the Judge appears, played by Mark Pellegrino. The Kid is played by Dave Franco, and Scott Glen and Luke Perry show up, too, as Tobin and Glanton.
This is very much a test reel — a rough edit, and lacking any polished sound mix — but it’s interesting to see Franco explore this particular sequence at length. If this was ever made as a traditional feature, this whole sequence would likely be condensed in a significant fashion. Additionally, the cast here may not have ended up in the feature. Note to anyone unfamiliar with Blood Meridian: this is not safe for work. Read More »
