John Goodman Walk of Fame Ceremony - The Big Lebowski

This past weekend, audiences were treated to a performance by John Goodman in Kong: Skull Island, and the movie went on to take the top spot at the box office. That’s good news, but the Roseanne star’s weekend got off to a great start before the numbers were in when he was given a place in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Joining a long list of Hollywood’s finest, John Goodman now has a star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the ceremony was made even more sweet because the man who was on hand to give him this glorious honor was none other than his The Big Lebowski co-star Jeff Bridges. But even better than just Jeff Bridges paying tribute to John Goodman is the fact that he did it in character as Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski.

Kong Skull Island Review

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.

Kong Skull Island Connects to Godzilla

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 »

Kong Skull Island Trailer

A new adventure featuring the classic movie monster King Kong is just a couple months away. Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is bringing the massive ape to the big screen in his largest form yet in Kong: Skull Island, but he’s not the only monster that a group of explorers have to contend with.

Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and more all encounter an endless array of giant creatures, from creepy spiders to gargantuan lizards and much more. Now a new Kong Skull Island trailer makes it hard to tell whether King Kong or these other monsters will be a larger threat to our human protagonists.

There are over 2,000 different alien species in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Two years before filming, director Luc Besson was gathering drawings and designs for all the film’s aliens and space crafts. He even wrote to schools to see if any young artists were interested in contributing to the movie. They received over 2,000 applicants, and 15 were selected. Besson wanted to use different sources to create this wild-looking universe, which uses both CG and practical effects to bring all the aliens to life, including Ambassador Dan Makta, who’s shown in a new photo from the sci-fi adventure.
