It’s been almost a week since I saw Shin Godzilla at Fantastic Fest 2016 and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. As I explained in my review, Toho’s 29th Godzilla film is fascinating and frustrating in equal measure, deliberately sidestepping what everyone expects from a kaiju movie so it can deliver something truly unique. Those hoping for a traditional monster movie may be disappointed by Shin Godzilla, but anyone looking for a Godzilla movie that that is weird and dense enough to inspire actual conversations will be delighted.
And that brings me to today’s piece of news: I’m proud to debut a new still from the film, offering an up close and personal look at the king of the monsters himself.

A few weeks ago, Ben Affleck posted a brief video revealing that Deathstroke would be making his way to the DC Extended Universe. Shortly afterward, Geoff Johns confirmed that Joe Manganiello had been cast in the role for Affleck’s Batman solo movie, which is expected out around 2018 or 2019. But it looks like we might get to meet the villain a little bit earlier than that.
Director Zack Snyder has posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of next year’s Justice League, which doesn’t look like much of anything at first glance but upon closer examination seems to suggest Deathstroke will appear in that movie. Read More »

Aside from the fact that John Wick was one of the best action thrillers we’ve seen in awhile, one of the reasons everyone fell in love with the movie was the adorable puppy that the titular assassin had. But audiences were heartbroken to learn that the dog actually ends up being one of the catalysts to John Wick coming back to action because some assholes kill that cute little puppy.
Thankfully, John Wick got a new dog at the end of the first movie, and as a new John Wick 2 photo shows us, no one has killed that dog yet. The first official photo from John Wick 2 has just surfaced, and it features the hitman and his trusty canine taking a walk. I swear on everything that is holy, if someone kills that dog, there will be hell to pay. Read More »

The film release in November of 1976 went on to win Best Picture, and it’s easily Sylvester Stallone‘s greatest contribution to cinema.

In the meantime, we have a cool little stroll down memory lane from one of the older installments of the Rocky franchise.
It appears Sylvester Stallone has been taking a stroll down memory lane recently, and he decided to share some photos from behind the scenes of Rocky IV that even he hadn’t previously seen. Check out the rarely seen Rocky IV set photos after the jump. Read More »

At the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, I sat in the library theater for the premiere of an ultra low budget film titled Tangerine. Filmmaker Sean Baker‘s Duplass Brothers-produced dramedy told the story of a transgender working girl searching Hollywood on Christmas Eve for the pimp who broke her heart. The film surprised the crowd with its heart and comedy, but the big shock came after the screening when the director revealed that the whole film was shot on an iPhone 5s.
The film has been namedropped by big filmmakers like JJ Abrams, and a lot of people have been interested to find out what Baker would be doing next. In April it was revealed that Baker had found his next movie, a film called The Florida Project. The title actually refers to Orlando Florida’s Disney World. Disney fanatics probably know that when Walt Disney first started buying up land and planning Disney World, the theme park plans was referred to it as “The Florida Project.”

At the beginning of the month, Dwayne Johnson offered us a hint as to what we can expect him to be doing in Sony Pictures new take on Jumanji, by way of some concept art. The movie isn’t a reboot, but rather a continuation of the events that happened in the first film from 1995, complete with some kind of tribute to Robin Williams planned. Now the first photo from the set has been released, and it’s clear this will be much different from the original Jumanji adaptation.
Check out the first Jumanji photo after the jump. Read More »
