Fresh off the huge success of Kingsman: The Secret Service, the comic book writer behind Kick-Ass, Wanted and Nemesis has teamed with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to work on a movie version of Jupiter’s Legacy.

The last time I saw the 2003 Daredevil movie was 2003. I didn’t like it then and I’m pretty sure I don’t like it now. To be honest, I don’t remember much about it. Its memory faded faster than I could walk out of the theater. That’s what bad movies do. But Daredevil has since, somehow, never left the public consciousness. In the past decade, it’s become the punchline of every superhero movie joke there is. Plus, it continues to have all these odd connections to today’s popular culture. (Affleck playing another superhero, Affleck marries Garner, etc.)
One of the biggest modern connections is the fact Marvel finally got the character back and turned it into a Netflix series which will be released this weekend. That makes it the perfect time for Screen Junkies to remind us why the Daredevil movie is so bad with an Honest Trailer. Check it out below. Read More »
Unless you lived it, it’s hard to explain what was so special about a VHS tape. For most of a generation, the VHS tape was your window into another world. Not only did it contain the movies we loved, it was a fragile, clunky piece of equipment. They had to be handled with some kind of care, there were tricks to some of its mechanics and they all eventually broke. Plus, until the world of HD decades later, we didn’t know just bad the image and sound actually were. Nevertheless, we loved them – and still continue to love them – dearly.
VHS is just one nostalgia button this new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer mash-up presses. It’s also filtered through action films of the Nineties. A time when bigger was better, dialogue was cheesier, and explosions were realer. Now, mash those two things up and you have this short, sweet trailer for Age of Ultron, as seen if it was a Nineties action film on VHS. Read More »

Joss Whedon famously shot the post-credits “shawarma” scene for The Avengers was shot after the film premiered, and in general the post-credits scene has become a mainstay of the Marvel movie experience. We’ve heard that no post-credits scene had yet been shot for Age of Ultron, and assumed that it might come about as the shawarma scene did, very late in the game.
Now Whedon says there’s no Age of Ultron post-credits scene at all. There will still be something during the credits, but if you’re not the type to enjoy sitting around until after the union logos and copyright notice scroll by, you can go home early this time. Read More »
