Darth Vader's Castle - Rogue One Concept Art

Not long after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters, many fans had questions about a certain location we see in the movie that isn’t identified with any on-screen text. There’s a certain scene that takes place in a castle inhabited by Darth Vader. We’ve already learned some details about the location, including confirmation that it can be found on the volcanic planet Mustafar and the fact that it’s built on top of a Sith cave. Now even more information has come to light.

Rogue One co-production designer Doug Chiang recently sat down for an interview to discuss the work he did on the Star Wars spin-off, and part of the extensive discussion included Darth Vader’s castle details that are rather intriguing. Read More »

Stranger Things Monster Effects

Now that it’s 2017, new episodes of Stranger Things feel much closer. The first season debuted last summer, and fans are expecting the second season to arrive on Netflix around the same time this year, though no official release date has been set just yet. In the meantime, how about we take a closer look at how the signature monster known as the Demogorgon was brought to life for the show?

Mark Steger helped brig the Demogorgon to life by being the man standing on stilts inside of a creature suit, and now some new behind the scenes photos and a video reveals the body suit and mechanical head that will haunt your nightmares, even when it’s not creeping in the dark.

See how the Stranger Things monster effects came together after the jump. Read More »

ghost in the shell trailer

Marvel may be reluctant to give Scarlett Johansson her own superhero movie, but everyone else in town seems determined to make her the next big action star. Next year sees her kicking high-tech ass in Ghost in the ShellRupert Sanders‘ adaptation of the iconic Japanese manga. Today, a new Ghost in the Shell image offers a new look at her character, the Major, while Sanders promises his movie won’t be “shit.” Good to know, I guess?

Check out the new Ghost in the Shell image below.  Read More »

As we’re all aware by now, Logan is Hugh Jackman‘s very last film as Wolverine — a role he’s been playing for a decade and a half now, starting with 2000’s X-Men. That fact adds an extra layer of poignancy to what already looks like a very bittersweet film, which in turn should make this movie even more of a must-see for fans. So the 20th Century Fox marketing team is leaning into it, hard, with a new Logan poster and a new Logan poster that literally show the sun setting on Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine. Check ’em out below.  Read More »

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS

If you’re an adult, your most highly anticipated superhero movies of 2017 probably include the hard-R Logan, the grim and gritty Justice League, maybe the playful Spider-Man: Homecoming if you’re feeling young at heart. But if you’re a small child, that list might be topped by Captain Underpants, an animated feature based on the long-running book series by Dav Pilkey.

Normally, it’d seem a bad sign for the film’s own director to describe his leading man as “sheer stupidity,” but in this case it’s a positive — we are, after all, talking about a superhero famous for running around in his underpants. A Captain Underpants first look photo has just been revealed, and you can click on through to check it out.  Read More »

John Wick Chapter 2

There are many, many reasons to look forward to John Wick: Chapter 2, but one is the fact that it’ll be a The Matrix reunion in miniature. As we reported last year, Laurence Fishburne has joined Keanu Reeves in the action sequel — which is being directed by Chad Stahelski, a stuntman and stunt coordinator on the Matrix trilogy. The earlier trailers have already given us a peek at Fishburne’s character, the Bowery King. Now today, a new image shows the former Neo and the former Morpheus together again.  Read More »

‘Alien: Covenant’ Photos: Everyone Looks Terrified

Alien Covenant - Jussie Smollett and Ridley Scott (BTS)

20th Century Fox’s Christmas present to the world this year was the Alien: Covenant trailer, and judging by the reactions, it’s exactly what fans were hoping would be waiting under their trees: a creepy, disgusting, flat-out terrifying return to form for the Alien franchise after the polarizing Prometheus. Even better, that trailer was just the start of it, as the Alien: Covenant marketing campaign is the gift that keeps on giving. Today, Fox has come back with more Alien-themed treats in the form of three new official photos from Covenant. Click through to see them all.  Read More »

Pixar's Coco Photo

This year we’ll be getting two films from Pixar Animation. One is the surprisingly grim and provocative Cars 3, which got everyone’s attention with that dark teaser trailer. But the other is thankfully an original idea, one that allows Pixar to dive into cultural territory they’ve yet to explore.

Coco follows a 12-year old Mexican boy named Miguel Rivera (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez). He is part of a family who makes shoes to get by, but has one unbreakable rule: no music allowed in the house. However, a new first look photo from Coco has surfaced showing that Miguel is directly defying that rule, giving into a passion for music that cannot be bottled up.

Another movie from Bong Joon-ho? Where do we get in line? Technically, we won’t have to line up anywhere when Joon-ho’s new film debuts next summer on Netflix, but you get the idea. The prospect of another monster movie from the director of The Host is impossible to pass up, but the acclaimed filmmaker doesn’t label his latest work a “monster movie.” According to the co-writer/director, Okja is a much friendlier and probably a whole lot less bloodthirsty than the monster from The Host.

Below, check out some new Okja images and read Joon-ho’s comments on the film.

The new, long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King‘s It is currently (and finally) in post-production. Last year, the R-rated adaptation appeared in trouble after director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) parted ways with New Line Cinema over some creative differences, which was a definite blow to the project. Director Andrés Muschietti‘s (Mama) ultimately stepped in, reworked the script, and shot the horror film over the summer, and he shared plenty of images during the shoot, teasing locations and parts from the book. Now a couple more images of Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) has been released.

Below, see the Stephen King’s It remake images.
