Logan Lucky plot details

When Steven Soderbergh first read Rebecca Blunt’s script, Logan Lucky, it was to make a suggestion for who should direct. This was in the fall of 2014 after the Traffic and Magic Mike director announced his retirement from moviemaking. After reading Blunt’s script, though, Soderbergh was inspired enough to return to features.

His first theatrical release since 2013’s Side Effects comes out this August. Logan Lucky is another heist movie from Soderbergh, but he describes it as an “inversion of an Ocean’s movie,” without the gloss and cool factor. Below, the director shares some Logan Lucky plot details and discusses his return to directing movies.

Hot Rod in Transformers The Last Knight

The most recent trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight showed off plenty from the sequel that is supposed to be the last installment of the franchise directed by Michael Bay. However, one character that we still haven’t seen much of is Hot Rod.

The Autobot has origins going all the way back to the 1986 animated movie when he was granted the Matrix of Leadership and became Rodimus Prime in the wake of the death of Optimus Prime. We’re not likely to see that same story unfold on the big screen, if only because it was a storyline that fans hated, but Hot Rod will still play a key role in the sequel.

A new image of Hot Rod in Transformers The Last Knight has emerged online along with a slew of details explaining what role the Autobot plays in the story. It turns out that he has played quite a pivotal role in the life of one of our new human characters. Find out more below. Read More »

alien covenant neomorph

When I visited the set of Alien: Covenant last year, we toured the film’s creature shop and one thing was very clear: this movie would feature a more traditional Xenomorph and a bunch of creepy, slimy, and hungry new friends. Now, a newly released image from the film reveals one of the new aliens who will menace director Ridley Scott‘s ensemble in the new movie: the pale, spindly “Neomorph.”

During the Star Wars Celebration panel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, writer/director Rian Johnson revealed that he kept a camera on his person at all times throughout the shoot, snapping photos whenever he saw a striking image.

kingsman the golden circle first look

Kingsman: The Secret Service wasn’t just a surprise box office smash – it was one of the most pleasantly surprising wide releases of 2015. Matthew Vaughn‘s gory spy riff, which pushed the language of James Bond movies into giddy, R-rated heights, was a ton of audacious, gnarly fun. However, this also means that the sequel won’t benefit from the element of surprise. Expectations have been raised!

But it seems to have come prepared, with new cast members in Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, and Jeff Bridges, each of whom has been revealed in the Kingsman: The Golden Circle first look.

Losers Club, It

I’m about 50 pages away from finishing Stephen King’s 1986 novel It, and holy crap, this book is tremendous. Without hyperbole, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. Rarely have I read a novel in which I’ve felt so firmly in the grip of a master storyteller – and I wasn’t crazy about the first Dark Tower book, so that praise isn’t coming from a fawning King devotee, either.

We’ve already seen a handful of photos from the upcoming film adaptation directed by Andres Muschietti, but a new batch of photos show off glimpses of the terrifying clown Pennywise (the “It” of the title) and our first look at the Losers Club, the group of outcast kids in Derry, Maine who come face to face with their worst nightmare.
