Bradley Cooper Vince McMahon

Crazy Stupid Love and Focus directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are currently developing Pandemonium, a biopic of WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, and a new rumor says that The Hangover and American Sniper star Bradley Cooper has been offered the role of the boisterous and media-savvy personality. Sounds like pretty great casting to us, but if Cooper’s not interested, let’s fan-cast this baby ourselves and come up with some alternate choices for who might make a good cinematic version of the wrestling impresario.

Adam Scott Replacing Bradley Cooper on Wet Hot American Summer

Today brings the highly anticipated sequel series Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later to Netflix. It fulfills the promise from the end of the original movie that debuted in 2001 that the counselors of Camp Firewood would reunite in 10 years to see what their lives had become. The whole star-studded gang is coming back, except for one person, but that absence comes with a hilarious explanation that is perfect for Wet Hot American Summer.

Bradley Cooper was unfortunately unavailable to reprise his role as Ben, the secretly gay theater nerd who had been dating Susie, played by Amy Poehler, while really being in love with fellow camp counselor McKinley (Michael Ian Black). But since Michael Showalter and David Wain had already come up with a storyline for his character that they just couldn’t abandon, they did the next best thing: replaced Bradley Cooper with Adam Scott. How will this be addressed on the show? Since this is Wet Hot American Summer, the answer is ridiculously and hilariously.

Find out why Adam Scott replaced Bradley Cooper on Wet Hot American Summer and how it’s explained below. Read More »

Suicide Squad Trailer Mash-Up

Even though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just hit theaters over a month ago, James Gunn is already hard at work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Just recently, the director’s brother Sean Gunn said that development isn’t moving as quickly as it otherwise would since part of what happens in the sequel depends on what the Guardians deal with in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.

But there is one thing that James Gunn is already considering and it would require him to break part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon he established in the first movie. Get the lowdown on this Guardians of the Galaxy 3 development below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 review

At times, the plot almost feels nonexistent in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Whether during an extended gag, a moment of backstory, or a sincere heart-to-heart, writer-director James Gunn is clearly more invested in character than the sequel’s simple doomsday plot. There’s a looseness, almost a shagginess, to the Marvel sequel that allows the characters to shine brightest in some eye-popping environments.

Guardians of the Galaxy Double Feature

Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel) make for a great team in Guardians of the Galaxy. They work so well together it’s hard to imagine one without the other. We may see them disband at some point, though, and maybe after Guardians of the Galaxy 3, which Gunn called the other day “the end of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Below, learn more about a possible change-up for the Guardians of the Galaxy team that’s likely very far off into the future.

Why Sean Gunn Plays Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy

Bradley Cooper provides the voice for the brash and reckless Rocket Raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. However, unlike actors such as Andy Serkis, he doesn’t actually work on set to do any motion capture work to bring the anthropomorphic raccoon to life. Instead, it’s James Gunn‘s brother Sean Gunn (who also plays the Ravager named Kraglin) who provides a point of reference for Rocket Raccoon on screen, appearing in a green screen colored unitard. But why?

James Gunn recently held another one of his informative Facebook Live streaming sessions where he answered fan questions. When one asked if the director would ever use Bradley Cooper on set during production, he explained why he doesn’t do that by default.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

This past weekend, Nickelodeon had their annual Kids’ Choice Awards, which meant it was a prime time for studios to advertise their latest blockbusters to the coveted younger demographic. The new footage unfurled included the newest trailer for Wonder Woman (which you can watch right here), as well as the first clip from Transformers: The Last Knight. But Marvel Studios also brought a treat for all of the kids who tuned in.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuted another clip featuring everyone’s favorite ragtag team of space criminals, and this time there’s a bit of a disagreement between Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon regarding who is the best pilot in the universe. The argument escalates to the point of one particularly gross threat that brings Drax the Destroyer into the fray.
