As someone who grew up in the Nineties, it’s kind of hard to get my mind around Nineties nostalgia. It honestly feels like it was yesterday, even though we’re 15 plus years removed. That said, I still enjoy it and Cinefix has just created a prime example to stab me straight in the heart – a homemade Hook remake.
They got Dante Basco to reprise his role as Rufio in a short, “homemade” (basically sweded) scene from Steven Spielberg‘s Hook. It’s surreal and funny to see this exciting, emotional scene played out in a Los Angeles driveway. With Basco there to utter his classic lines, however, it’s very worth your time. Plus there’s a behind the scenes video and a side by side with Spielberg’s version. Check them out below. Read More »

Warning, if you are easily creeped out, this video will not be easy to watch. The team at ScreenJunkies went against rules of Shia LaBeouf‘s elaborate Los Angeles art installation #IAMSORRY and snuck in a camera. They took off his bag and, well, it’s just weird. Check out the video below. Read More »

Among them are an alternate ending to Gravity, how he felt about scientific criticism directed toward the film, his outlook on the future of cinema, his feelings on digital formats, if he’d do a superhero movie, why he only did one Harry Potter, Guillermo del Toro’s contributions to Gravity and much more.

Shia LaBeouf would be proud of Jerry O’Connell. LaBeouf got national press Tuesday for the opening of his contemporary art installation #IAMSORRY. The “show” features LaBeouf in the paper bag he wore to the world premiere of Nymphomaniac in Berlin, sitting quietly while fans talk to him. Wednesday, in the space right next door to LaBeouf’s in West Hollywood, actor Jerry O’Connell set up #IAMSORRYTOO, which featured the Stand By Me, Jerry Maguire and Sliders star in a bag that said “Super Famous,” and willing to talk about damn near anything.

The next Disney/Pixar short film, Party Central, debuted at this summer‘s D23 Expo. Set in the Monsters University universe, it follows the Oozma Kappa clan as they throw a frat party. But no one shows up, and they remedy the situation by using some crazy tactics to steal a rival party.
Originally, the short was going to debut with The Good Dinosaur, but as that film has now been pushed back until 2015, Party Central (above) will now premiere with March’s Muppets Most Wanted.
Speaking of that film, you can watch a new viral video from it, jokingly showing how excited the Internet is for the next Muppet movie. Read More »

We haven’t heard much from Doug Liman‘s Edge of Tomorrow since we got our first glimpse of footage at Comic-Con, but that’s changing in a big way this week. In advance of the sci-fi thriller’s first trailer release on Wednesday, Warner Bros. has launched a nifty viral campaign, and several images to go along with it.
Based on a graphic novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the film centers Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise), who despite his lack of combat training is thrust into the middle of a war against an alien race. He dies quickly, but gets caught in a time loop that forces him to relive that same battle over and over. Emily Blunt stars as another soldier. See the new pics after the jump.

Jamie Foxx‘s turn as Electro is undoubtedly at the center of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. At every turn early in the marketing, he, Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield have hinted Max Dillon’s turn from meek Spider-Man fan to electric super-villain is what the movie is all about. And while we know something involving electricity occurs to Dillon to make him Electro (Comic-Con footage suggested eels?) we don’t know exactly what that is yet.
A new post on The Daily Bugle viral site might now shine some light on Electro’s origins. It hints at some kind of new “hydroelectric power plant” being built in New York by Oscorp. Also, the latest rumor of a subtitle for the film is The Amazing Spider-Man: Rise of Electro. Read More »
