It might sound hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years since Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim brought Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! to Adult Swim. To celebrate the milestone anniversary, the duo are heading out on the road for a North American tour this summer with 18 live shows spread out across the country over the span of a month.

There have been plenty of iterations of King Kong over the years, from his debut in the classic RKO picture in 1933 that would influence generations of filmmakers to Peter Jackson’s romantic epic in 2005. But I can guarantee that you’ve never seen a King Kong as badass, stylish and just plain cool as director Jordan Vogt-Roberts delivers in Kong: Skull Island.
It’s been a long time since there’s been a monster movie as bold, daring and gruesome as Kong: Skull Island, and that’s what makes it a refreshing action adventure that is chock full of mesmerizing visuals, startling action and some of the most amazingly repulsive monsters the big screen has seen in awhile.
Read on for our full Kong Skull Island review. Read More »
The king has returned. Kong: Skull Island is officially in theaters, bringing the giant ape back to the big screen as you’ve never seen him before. Director Jordan-Vogt Roberts has created a monstrous action adventure that is packed with plenty of creatures for Kong to do battle with. It’s nothing like Peter Jackson’s King Kong from 2005, and it’s the kind of monster movie that we don’t get to see often from Hollywood anymore.
Sneak preview screenings started last night and Kong: Skull Island is playing everywhere right now (with the Dunkirk prologue playing before IMAX screenings), so we want to find out what you thought about this movie, which stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and a scene-stealing John C. Reilly.
Below, we’ve assembled our thoughts on Kong: Skull Island and we’d like you to you sound off with your own! Read More »
This weekend brings Kong: Skull Island to theaters, and while some weren’t necessarily thrilled at the prospect of another King Kong movie, the early reviews indicate that this is an absolute blast of a monster movie, the likes of which we haven’t seen in awhile.
We’ve already posted our own review of Kong: Skull Island, singing the praises of this truly gnarly action adventure, which is just chock-full of gruesome monsters. But if you’re still on the fence, we thought now would be a good time to round up reviews from around the web to give you a broader idea of what director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has brought to the table with his impressive ensemble cast of actors and creatures.

It seems crazy to think that Kong: Skull Island will be in theaters in just a little over a month. There doesn’t seem to be enough buzz about the movie just yet, but that will likely change as the release date gets closer. There’s a chance there could even be a Super Bowl spot to help spread the word.
In the meantime, a new Kong: Skull Island IMAX poster has been released that takes an obvious cue from Apocalypse Now, just like the first trailer for the King Kong reboot did. Plus, we finally have confirmation on how Kong Skull Island connects to Godzilla, the reboot of the King of Monsters from 2014. Read More »
In less than two months, a new King Kong movie with Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Brie Larson, Shea Whigham, Tom Hiddleston, and Jason Mitchell comes out. Let’s hope the movie is as good as that sounds, and that it’s as good as it looks because Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ follow-up to The Kings of Summer looks like one big, intense popcorn movie. Did I mention Vogt-Robers film also stars John Ortiz (Togetherness)? He hasn’t been featured prominently in the marketing materials, like the Kong: Skull Island TV spots below, but he’s in it, which is another valid reason to want to see Samuel L. Jackson and a band of soldiers take on some giant monsters.
Below, watch the new Kong: Skull Island TV spot.

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

We first heard about Holmes and Watson back in 2008. At the time, it was going to star Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, but the comedy fell to the wayside, and we instead got two Sherlock Holmes movies from Guy Ritchie. The musical was revived last summer with Ferrell still onboard but with Cohen out. Etan Cohen‘s (Get Hard) film now has John C. Reilly playing Watson, making this an exciting reunion for the Step-Brothers and Talladega Nights stars. They’re in good company, too, as Hugh Laurie (Chance) and Ralph Fiennes (A Bigger Splash) have signed on to star in the film.
Below, learn more about Holmes and Watson.

Following a revival of Godzilla back in 2014, another one of most menacing monsters of the movies is returning to theaters. Kong: Skull Island brings back the King of the Apes known as King Kong. And while we know that this new take on Kong will have ties to the same world that the new Godzilla exists in, eventually leading to a head-to-head battle between the two monsters in 2020, first we must have a proper introduction to the giant ape.

Last weekend at Comic-Con, the hype centered around the likes of the first trailer for Power Rangers, the teaser trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, the first trailer for Marvel’s Iron Fist series, and news of Sigourney Weaver being the villain for The Defenders. But one cool little tidbit flew under the radar until after the dust had settled.
Kong: Skull Island gave attendees of San Diego Comic-Con their first look at the classic monster reboot from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer) with a teaser trailer, and now a poster handed out to some lucky folks at New York Comic-Con teases the release of the giant ape a little more. Upon first inspection, it’s just an innocent teaser poster with a grid map of the mysterious Skull Island. But when you take a black light to it, some interesting secrets are revealed. Read More »
