The tagline for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” In all the discussions about the film post release, that idea has kind of been left in the dust (pun intended). The environmental issues in the film have been overshadowed by the science of the space sequences, and the sound in the theater. Hoping to focus attention back on that aspect of the film, Nolan and his team are doing a project to celebrate the planet we live on.
Nolan and his actors are asking fans, filmmakers and everyone in between to participate in a time capsule project. An Interstellar documentary, if you will, that will result in a film that showcases “memorable and inspiring moments of today to give future generations a way to remember where they came from.” David Brodie and Angus Wall are producing the film with Nolan curating the entries.

Wednesday, a very credible sounding rumor began to circulate that the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Well, we’ve heard from a very credible source that, with 100% certainty, the Star Wars 7 trailer won’t debut with Peter Jackson’s latest The Hobbit film. There’s a very strong likelihood it will play with that film but according to the source, Disney has “bigger plans” for the trailer debut than a simple attachment. What does that mean? When will it happen? We honestly don’t know. But we’ll offer up a few suggestions about the Star Wars 7 trailer release below. Read More »

In our line of work, there are days when we get discouraged. Like the ones where yet another studio announces it’s building a Marvel-style universe, or the ones where we spend three hours watching some $200 million movie only to realize it feels exactly like the last three $200 million movies we saw. It starts to feel like there’s nothing new under the sun, and we might as well stop caring.
But we wouldn’t be doing this if there weren’t even more days that made us rejoice in the movie business, and made us excited to see where things are headed next. Not all trends are bad, even if we’ve complained about some of our least favorite ones in the past. After the jump, check out 10 movie and TV trends we love. Read More »
Complete with the James Gunn seal of approval, the How It Should Have Ended crew has taken on Guardians of the Galaxy.
It’s a good thing Gunn liked it, too, because the video points out several instances in the film where things could have logically gone a very different way. The result is one of the longest How It Should Have Ended videos yet, but one with tons of jokes and references. Those are aimed not only at the film, but at the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and other comic book series. There are even some cameos from characters from Star Wars, Harry Potter and more.
It’s a hilarious, clever, and well made video that’s worth checking out. Below, watch how Guardians of the Galaxy should have ended. Read More »
My first memory as a human being is of The Last Starfighter. I was four years old, sitting in the back seat of my mom’s old station wagon at the Middletown Drive-In, and poof. My first memory is looking up at the screen and seeing Nick Castle‘s exciting and awesome sci-fi film.
If you haven’t seen The Last Starfighter, you’re missing a movie that was about 30 years ahead of its time. In it, a young human named Alex (Lance Guest) is recruited by an alien race to fight a war to save the universe. How is he recruited? Because he’s the best person in the world at a video game called Starfighter.
With video games more popular than ever, the idea of an alien race using them to recruit sounds like an incredibly modern idea. So why not reimagine The Last Starfighter in a modern context? YouTube user Tim Gonzales did just that. Below, watch the modernized Last Starfighter trailer. Read More »
The word “alien” is a big deal when talking about Prometheus and its potential sequel. Ridley Scott‘s film was, after all, a return to the universe he helped create in his defining 1979 film Alien. The signature alien — the xenomorph — from that film even made an appearance in altered but recognizable form at the end of Prometheus. But for the sequel, which will follow the character played by Noomi Rapace on a new journey, Scott says there are entirely new plans in mind. See what Scott has to say about new aliens in Prometheus 2 below. Read More »

“There can be only one (sexiest man alive)!” There is going to be a Highlander reboot, and the producers reportedly want Tom Cruise to be in the film. But he wouldn’t be the hero who learns that his own strange birthright automatically enrolled him in a violent game amongst immortals competing for the ultimate price. No, Cruise is being eyed for the revamped version of Sean Connery’s original role. So his part would be of the wise and experienced mentor/swordsman who helps the Highlander come to terms with his life and immortality. Get a few more very cautious details of the possible Tom Cruise Highlander deal below.
