Rumor: Christoph Waltz Is Blofeld in ‘Bond 24′

Christoph Waltz Blofeld

When Christoph Waltz was said to be set for a role in Bond 24, one character name likely leapt to mind for long-time James Bond fans: Ernst Stavro Blofeld. The character was vaguely introduced in From Russia With Love (1963) but we didn’t see his face until Donald Pleasence played him in You Only Live Twice in 1967. Blofeld has not appeared in an official Bond film since 1981 due to a rights dispute. But that conflict, with the estate of the late producer Kevin McClory, was resolved months ago, putting Blofeld and his organization SPECTRE back into the realm of possibility for a Bond film.  Read More »

new Terminator Genisys Photo

The most recent batch of Terminator: Genisys pics (really, the first official shots representing the movie) were not well received. Neither was the plot description that went with them. There’s a sense that all parties involved have some real damage control to do. Which is why it is odd that a pretty good image of Arnold Schwarzenegger in makeup as the aged T-800 has been half-hidden on the lot at Paramount. Studio lots often have such hidden early images and promotional gems, but most aren’t as useful to their productions as this one could be. Read More »

R-Rated Expendables 4

The Expendables series has shown diminishing returns both for fans and execs. The third movie diverted its focus away from the aging action heroes that were the driving force behind the series to begin with, and also fell vicim to pre-release piracy. (The industry is still debating the effect that leak had on the box office.) The Expendables 3 was also PG-13, and the downgraded level of intense action that followed that ratings change wasn’t viewed well by fans. Sylvester Stallone seems to get it, however, and says that the attempt to broaden the series’ appeal was “a horrible miscalculation” that will be rectified in the future. Will an R-Rated Expendables 4 be the course correct the series needs? Read More »

 Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer debut

UPDATE: Regal Cinemas has revealed the first theaters that are showing the trailer. Check below to see if yours is on the list. The original story from 11/22 continues below.

UPDATE 2: AMC Theaters and Cinemark have also revealed they are on board.

There has been more speculation about the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer alone than there is for most movies at a whole. First we learned that it had been edited, and that John Williams had recorded new music for the trailer. Then there was a series of rumored descriptions. This week a report claimed that the teaser would premiere attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, but we were able to exclusively debunk that rumor and tell you that Disney has “bigger plans”.

So when will the Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer debut? This week. When and how? Thats a bit more complicated.

Jurassic World trailer

After last week’s odd tease about “Something Big Is Coming” in the Jurassic Park world, it’s come true. The official Jurassic World Twitter posted a short, awesome, tease of the first Jurassic World trailer, which will premiere Thursday at 9 p.m. EST during the Seahawks/49ers game on NBC, and online everywhere.

In the footage, you’ll see Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, the new park gates and lots of dinosaurs running around. It’s pretty exciting.

Hunger Games MockingJay part 1 review

Note: This review was original published on November 10. We’ve bumped it up now that the film is in theaters. 

It’s a shame The Hunger Games series gets filed into the “young adult” category. Sure, there’s some dystopian young romance in there, but with each subsequent film, the series proves it is about much more than unattainable love with sporadic action. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 takes the series to its furthest point from YA stereotypes yet.

However, what’s most interesting about this latest installment — the first part of a two-part finale — is just how different it is from the rest of the franchise. Is that a good thing? Below, read why The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 feels like a different franchise. Read More »
