wish upon trailer

If you cross Joey King, get ready to pay the consequences. That’s basically the premise of Wish Upon, in which the The ConjuringWhite House Down, and Wish I Was Here star gets seven wishes to do as she pleases, like making a bully rot. A pretty sweet deal for a teenager quickly goes terribly wrong in director John R. Leonetti‘s (Annabelle) summer horror movie.

Below, watch the new Wish Upon trailer.

Guardians of the Galaxy Ride

There are only a few more days until Disneyland opens the doors to its first Marvel attraction. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is in the same location as the theme park’s beloved Tower of Terror ride, and it’s been completely revamped from the inside out to look like a fortress that belongs to The Collector, the eccentric character played by Benicio Del Toro in the Marvel Studios films. You can learn all about the attraction right here, but a new video interview with Del Toro has surfaced that gives us our first look inside the attraction…and this thing is practically overflowing with cool props and easter eggs.

Take a peek at the Guardians of the Galaxy ride video below.

Game of Thrones mobile

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, and opinionated about something that makes us very happy…or fills us with indescribable rage. In this edition: AT&T’s suggestion to recut Game of Thrones episodes.)

This morning, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson spoke at J.P. Morgan’s Global Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference and offered his thoughts about the future of mobile entertainment in the wake of AT&T’s pending acquisition of Time Warner. Most notably, he had some ideas about re-editing content to better optimize it for a mobile-using audience. “Think about things like Game of Thrones,” he said. “In a mobile environment, a 60-minute episode might not be the best experience. Maybe you want a 20-minute episode.”

For the AT&T CEO, allow me to provide an acronym of my own: GTFO.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Golden Tickets

Earlier this year, fans of Kevin Smith‘s series of films known as the View Askewniverse were delivered some sad news when they learned that both Clerks 3 and Mallrats 2 (which was meant to be turned into a TV series), were both dead. However, the bad news did come with some good as the writer/director also announced that Miramax was going to let him reach back into his filmography to reboot one of his silliest comedies.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will give the titular stoners played by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith himself a chance to come back to the big screen to stop a reboot of Bluntman & Chronic, the superhero comic inspired by the characters, from being made. And 10 lucky fans will be closer to the production than any of us, thanks to Kevin Smith’s Willy Wonka inspired golden ticket promotion that he announced yesterday.

game of thrones season 7 daenerys

At its core, HBO’s wildly popular fantasy series Game of Thrones is a chess game. The early seasons involved a handful of characters slowly and methodically plotting their political maneuvers and adapting to situations around them in the hopes of securing the coveted Iron Throne for themselves, while others waited in the wings, quietly accruing power and preparing to strike.

But now that the board has been culled down to its most essential pieces, things are going to start happening a hell of a lot more quickly on the show. No more waiting. No more quiet contemplating. It’s time for action, and according to new interviews with the showrunners and cast, that’s exactly what we’re going to get in Game of Thrones season 7.

hellboy reboot

It’s been nine years since fans last saw Mike Mignola’s comic book character Hellboy on the big screen, and though there was a metric ton of discussion about another Guillermo del Toro-directed sequel, we know that his version of Hellboy 3 is never going to happen. But all is not lost: we learned earlier this month that Mignola is taking the character in a new direction with an R-rated movie reboot that features Stranger Things actor David Harbour taking over the title role from Ron Perlman. Now Perlman has weighed in on the new casting, given Harbour his blessing, and described the scope and intentions of the abandoned capper of his would-be trilogy.

Roger Moore Was My James Bond

Roger Moore Was My James Bond

Everyone has their James Bond. For my uncle, it was Sean Connery.

When I was around 10 years old, he visited from up north and sent me on a mission. I was to scour the local Blockbuster (remember when that was a thing?) and return with a James Bond movie on VHS (remember when that was also a thing?). There was only one parameter: it had to star Connery. In my uncle’s eyes, he was the only Bond. No one else mattered. Those other guys? Not worth the time of day. He specifically requested Goldfinger, a movie that he claimed featured everything you needed to know about being a man. Goldfinger was unavailable. I returned with Diamonds Are Forever, which proceeded to punish my entire family for two hours as we endured it.

I share this story because every James Bond fan has their quirks. You won’t find anyone who loves all of the movies. You won’t find a consensus on which actor best portrayed 007. And in my experience, the exact nature of these quirks are defined by very specific and very personal moments. Bond has always been malleable, a pop culture force that bends with the times and absorbs popular trends to create the artifice of youth. It’s always different. Always adapting. Always shapeshifting. Because of this, your Bond isn’t always my Bond. Agent James Bond of MI6 is a different thing for just about everyone.

And Roger Moore was my James Bond.
