the shape of water story details

What’s one movie to look forward this year? Director Guillermo del Toro‘s (Pan’s Labyrinth) cold war fantasy film, The Shape of Water. Fox Searchlight is behind the project, which del Toro started shooting late last summer in Toronto, Canada. We know a decent amount about the love story, but actor Doug Jones (Hellboy II: The Golden Army) recently revealed more information about the film and the creature he’s playing.

Han Solo Fan Film

We already know that the next installment under the Star Wars Story banner following Rogue One is a movie that will follow a young Han Solo. Disney and Lucasfilm have already brought on Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) to direct, and Alden Ehrenreich has been to play the smuggler originated by Harrison Ford in 1977 with Donald Glover as his old buddy Lando Calrissian. But that movie won’t arrive until 2018.

In the meantime, some dedicated Star Wars fans got together to create a rather impressive short film following Han Solo on one of his early adventures. The project is called Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade, and while it’s obviously not up to the quality of any of the big screen chapters, but for a production made by fans, it’s one of the better attempts we’ve seen.

The Bye Bye Man trailer

STX Entertainment has unveiled the latest trailer for The Bye Bye Man, a supernatural horror-thriller that has Doug Jones (Hellboy) playing a sinister force who’s been responsible for unthinkable evil. The problem is that avoiding his grasp is easier said than done. As the attractive young heroes/victims keep advising each other, “Don’t say it, don’t think it.” But of course, trying really hard to avoid thinking about something is a surefire way of making sure you keep thinking about it.

the bye bye man trailer

I’m usually all-in for any horror movie that feels confident enough in its chief monster to make its name the title of the film, so color me intrigued by the upcoming The Bye Bye Man. Seemingly inspired by everything from Freddy Krueger to the Slender Man, this guy is played by the imposing Doug Jones and he makes a decent enough impression in the trailer for the film. But what about everything else around him?

The Bye Bye Man Trailer

It may be hard to imagine now, what with spring just barely starting to creep in across much of the country, but there will come a time in the not-too-distant future when you’re sweltering in the summer heat. When that day comes, you might welcome some spine-tingling chills to turn the blood in your veins to ice. And when you’re looking for something to do just that, The Bye Bye Man hopes you’ll give it a spin.

Directed by Stacy Title, the horror-thriller centers on a group of college kids who come across the “Bye Bye Man,” a mysterious and malevolent force. It turns out this monster has a nasty habit of possessing people and committing unspeakable atrocities. Oh, and he’s played by the wonderful Doug Jones, which makes him seem more interesting already. Watch the Bye Bye Man trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Donal Logue in Gotham - character actor psa
Entertainment Weekly has released a faux public service announcement with character actors explaining why you should care about “that guy from that thing” more than “that guy on the billboard.” Character actors are supporting  actors who are usually skilled at playing interesting or unusual characters, but not usually the lead roles in a film. They are the unsung heroes of Hollywood. Watch the character actor PSA video embedded now after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Eggs

Guardians of the Galaxy might be Marvel’s most elaborate film to date when it comes to easter eggs. I’ve watched the film twice now and have noticed a ton of inside jokes, references to characters from the comic books, 1980’s callbacks and more.I attempted to compile the most complete listing of Guardians of the Galaxy easter eggs, including (possible spoilers teased in the following):

  • Who is Peter Quill’s father? Does Peter Quill’s mother have a relationship with Captain America?
  • The geography of the four revealed Infinity Gems (which stones have been revealed and where are they?)
  • Many Marvel comic book characters you didn’t see appear in Guardians (including a prominent female Krylorian techno-artist)
  • A look at many of the treasures which can be seen inside The Collector’s museum (who or what is in the cocoon?)
  • 8 cameo appearances from filmmakers, actors and even pets revealed (Nathan Fillion and Seth Green, where?)
  • The stars behind the CG characters (who played Rocket on set?)
  • A look at the 1980’s pop culture references in the film (did you know Star-Lord’s ship is named after a 1980’s television star?)
  • How the comic book canon differs from what appeared on screen
  • Funny credits and more

Take a look at /Film’s Guardians of the Galaxy easter egg list after the jump.
