the predator to use practical effects

The temptation to rely on CGI is huge these days, but director Shane Black is trying to buck that trend.

For his take on The Predator, the fourth installment in the Predator franchise following Predator (1987), Predator 2 (1990), and Predators (2010), he will be revisiting the practical effects that made the first film so iconic. That means getting a 7-plus-foot actor to don a heavy rubber suit in the jungle heat.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

Earlier today, we reported how the full title of Avengers 4 is being kept under guard because it would spoil aspects of Avengers: Infinity War. Now, thanks to some loose lips during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press tour, that title may have just been revealed and it’s going to raise the eyebrow of many comic book fans…while meaning pretty much nothing to most civilians.

Update from editor Peter Sciretta: Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has debunked the title rumor, hit the jumo to find out what he said.

captain marvel origin

Brie Larson broke out with a raw performance in Short Term 12 and has been firmly on the rise ever since. She won an Oscar for her devastating work in Room, appeared as the female lead in Kong: Skull Island and last weekend’s Free Fire, and is making her directorial debut with Unicorn Store. Not bad for a 27-year-old.

Oh yeah – and she’s also been cast as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, Marvel Studios’ latest superhero and the first female character to lead her own solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No big deal.

In a new interview, Larson explains why she accepted the role and what it means to her. Plus, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige sounds off about why she was the right choice for the role. Read the Brie Larson Captain Marvel comments below.

guardians of the galaxy vol. 2

Marvel Studios changed the game when they signed Samuel L. Jackson to an unprecedented nine movie deal back in 2009. Since then, keeping track of how many Marvel movies different actors have left on their contracts has become a minor hobby for some fans.

Last week, I sat down with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Chris Pratt, and while our full conversation is still forthcoming, I wanted to share a couple of his comments about whether or not he’ll appear in Captain Marvel, whether he’ll renew his contract with the studio, and Star-Lord’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read the Chris Pratt Marvel contract details below.

star wars episode 9 release date

One side effect of announcing a schedule of movies years in advance is that, sometimes, you have to completely shift that schedule to accommodate reality. Today, Disney announced new and changed release dates for a number of its movies, including Star Wars: Episode 9, Indiana Jones 5, Frozen 2, Gigantic, The Lion King, and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

Alien - Tyler Stout - Mondo Vinyl

Tomorrow brings a new Alien Day for fans of the sci-fi franchise that 20th Century Fox started with Alien all the way back in 1979. Inspired by the mysterious planet labeled LV-426, last year became the first official, annual Alien Day in honor of the 30th anniversary of the sequel, Aliens. This year’s celebration is also a big one because there’s an all-new film in the franchise to promote, Alien: Covenant.

Though there will be plenty of Alien: Covenant reveals, product tie-ins and more, Alien Day is just as much about celebrating the franchise as a whole. That’s why Mondo has a handful of limited edition items they’ll be selling in honor of both the original Alien and the sequel Aliens. Check out the Mondo Alien Day 2017 items below! Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Cast

Hollywood is sorta-kinda starting to introduce gay characters into family films (even though the results can sometimes be pretty half-assed). Last month, Power Rangers introduced a gay team member and Beauty and the Beast introduced Walt Disney Studio’s first gay character. Now it seems that Marvel might be joining in with an LGBT character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Here’s what we know about a possible gay Guardians of the Galaxy team member.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 junket

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the press junket for Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in West Hollywood. Peter Sciretta and I will be publishing individual interviews with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, writer/director James Gunn, and actors Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell here on the site in the days leading up to the film’s release next week.
