Its not a new phenomenon, a lot of movie trailers feature shots from movies that don’t end up on the big screen. This usually takes the form of scenes or moments that hit the cutting room floor in the time between the early marketing and release date. And with big budget visual effects films, its not uncommon to see many different iterations of a computer rendering that evolves into a much better looking effect by the time it hits multiplexes.
And we’ve already talked a bunch about the deleted scenes that were glimpsed in the marketing for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but didn’t make it to the theatrical release. But now that the movie is on Blu-ray and VOD fans are noticing some of the smaller details that didn’t make the theatrical cut of the film, the most recent of which is a reference to George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels and specifically Anakin Skywalker. Hit the jump to see the deleted Anakin Skywalker Force Awakens reference.

In retrospect, in was inevitable. Someone, someday, was going to reboot the Puppet Master series. All long-running horror movie franchises follow the same pattern: unlikely early success leads to annualized sequels, annualized sequels lead to diminishing returns, diminishing returns lead to nostalgia-soaked sequels a decade or more after the series seeming died. And then: the Hollywood reboot. In this case, the new Puppet Master movie will be produced by Di Bonaventura Pictures, who are best known these days for the Transformers and G.I. Joe movies, and written by S. Craig Zahler, the legit madman who wrote and directed last year’s Bone Tomahawk.

When the first teaser trailer arrived for X-Men: Apocalypse, some fans weren’t happy with the way the title villain, played by Oscar Isaac, actually sounded. Apocalypse is essentially a god, and his voice is not supposed to sound like any other person. It’s meant to be booming, inhuman and threatening.
Thankfully, Apocalypse’s voice has been modified in the most recent trailer, and it’s something that director Bryan Singer has been perfecting in post-production. In fact, Singer specifically addressed the evolution of Apocalypse’s voice in a recent edit bay visit that some members of the press attended, and he explained why the villain sounded so normal in early marketing materials and what fans can expect in the final cut of the movie.
Find out what Bryan Singer had to say about the X-Men: Apocalypse voice evolution after the jump. Read More »

Dredd was an out-and-out flop when it hit theaters in 2012, but thanks to strong reviews and a solid home video performance it’s only gotten more popular as time has gone by. For years now fans have been calling for a sequel, and star Karl Urban has been more than happy to encourage that chatter. Still, when he mentioned recently that he wanted to make a Dredd 2, we chalked it up to wishful thinking. After all, he’s been saying as much for years and so far hasn’t had much to show for it.
But it looks like there might be a tiny bit more to his recent comments than we previously assumed. During an appearance at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, Urban teased that “conversations are happening” about bringing Dredd back, possibly as a streaming series. Read More »

If the subtitle to your movie is the name of the villain, that villain needs to be something of a big deal. Take X-Men: Apocalypse. As Apocalypse’s name implies, he is a big deal. The world’s first mutant is thousands of years old and is a walking, talking greatest hits collection of superpowers that he’s picked up over the years. Plus, he’s played by the consistently wonderful Oscar Isaac, who appears to be having a grand ol’ time playing a supervillain in the trailers.
20th Century Fox has released a new promotional featurette that examines the history and motivation of the latest X-Men bad guy and it’s not going to tell the faithful anything they don’t already know. However, it’s an effective enough primer for the casual crowd, and let’s just be honest with ourselves here – those are the people who make these movies hits.

There are some very talented master builders out there who create the most impressive custom LEGO creations. We love featuring impressive LEGO creations, especially ones that have a chance at getting turned into real LEGO sets like that recent Short Circuit set that puts Johnny Five together or the Voltron set that you can actually assemble five separate pieces to form the robot.
Now we have a truly stunning LEGO Star Destroyer that puts the official LEGO version of the Imperial vehicle (seen in the foreground above) to shame. We don’t know how many pieces were made to create this one, but it has three interior levels, houses some TIE Interceptors and an Imperial shuttle, and is an absolute marvel of LEGO engineering. See the custom LEGO Star Destroyer after the jump. Read More »
