Ragnarok Odin

If you thought Anthony Hopkins‘ role as Odin in Thor: Ragnarok seemed a bit small, there’s a reason for that: his scenes were drastically changed after test audiences reacted poorly. In a new interview, Ragnarok director Taika Waititi confirms that the original plan for Odin bothered early test audiences, resulting in a drastic change. Learn more about the Thor Ragnarok deleted scenes involving Odin below.

Hannibal Lecter Statue

Since the classic thriller Silence of the Lambs isn’t exactly the kind of movie that’s friendly to creating merchandise to commemorate it, there have been very few attempts to bring Hannibal Lecter to the shelves of fans. While there have been attempts by NECA to create a few different detailed figures, most Hannibal Lecter collectibles have been unimpressive. But one company is about to give fans the cannibal collectible they deserve.

Blitzway, the same company behind the impressive sixth scale Ghostbusters figures and forthcoming Ecto-1 that fits the whole team, is coming out with a series of Hannibal Lecter statues that feature an incredible likeness of Sir Anthony Hopkins. Check them out below. Read More »

westworld season 2 premiere title

Westworld has been enveloped in mystery since it first hit the airwaves on HBO last fall, and although most of Reddit and the Internet have guessed its many twists and turns, the show is going to keep it that way for Season 2.

We know very little of the second season of HBO’s genre hit, other than the fact that it’s happening. Release dates? Episode titles? Cast? Nothing. But co-creator and writer Jonathan Nolan have decided to appease thirsty Westworld fans with a tantalizing hint for the second season premiere. Naturally, frenzied theorizing ensues.

Transformers The Last Knight Clip

Since no one really cares about the human characters in the Transformers franchise that much, you might have forgotten that Mark Wahlberg‘s character, named Cade Yaeger, is an inventor. Thankfully, a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight reminds us of that fact when he’s introduced to a character played by Laura Haddock, an Oxford Professor who just had her first personal experience with a Transformer. Wahlberg gives her a little attitude when he’s forced to explain what he’s invented, and then…we’ll just let you see what happens after that.

Transformers The Last Knight Poster

Not too long ago, the marketing campaign for Spider-Man: Homecoming made a bold entry into the running for worst movie poster of the year. But then Transformers: The Last Knight came along and said, “Hold my beer.”

A new poster for Transformers: The Last Knight emerged over the weekend, and it’s quite the Photoshop disaster. It looks like Paramount Pictures hired someone who just learned how to use photo editing software last week, maybe an executive’s niece or nephew who took a break from his YouTube channel for a couple hours. It could very well end up being the worst movie poster of the year.

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 »

The Silence of the Lambs romantic comedy trailer

The Silence of the Lambs is an unsettling thriller for a number of reasons. Not only is Buffalo Bill a horrifying psychopath, but perhaps more unnerving is the relationship that builds between FBI agent Clarice Starling and Dr. Hannibal Lecter, one that feels like it’s on the verge of being uncomfortably erotic. But what if there was a way to make that element of the movie a little less creepy, perhaps even charming?

The folks at CineFix put together a trailer remix of The Silence of the Lambs that paints it as a harmless, mature romantic comedy. Surprisingly, it works rather well, even if Anthony Hopkins is still a bit of a creep when he talks to Jodie Foster.

Anthony Hopkins Calls Michael Bay Genius

Director Michael Bay has been making feature films for 22 years now. He made his directorial debut with Bad Boys in 1995, and since then he’s given us spectacle after spectacle featuring explosions, super models, sweeping cameras and more. For the past decade, he’s been predominantly busy with the Transformers franchise, but this summer appears to be his last time behind the camera of the franchise (at least until an appealing spin-off for him to direct comes long).

For some fans, Michael Bay departing the Transformers franchise will be a welcome change. But those fans apparently didn’t know that we’ve had a genius behind these movies the whole time. That’s what Anthony Hopkins recently called Michael Bay in a recent interview, favorably comparing the Armageddon and Pain & Gain director to filmmakers like Martin Scorsese. Find out more below.

'Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer

Last weekend brought a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight, not to mention an extended TV spot giving us a peek at baby Dinobots and showing us just how tough the franchise’s young new star, Isabela Moner, is going to be.
