May is Marvel’s month. It has been for a while and it’ll continue to be for even longer. This year there’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Next year, it’s Captain America: Civil War. Then, in 2017, the Guardians will be back in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. With two years to go before release, writer/director James Gunn isn’t exactly rushing just yet, but he’s working hard and steady on the movie. Last we heard, he had the entire story laid out and Marvel told him the ideas were “risky.”
Now, he’s revealed a treatment of the story has been done and approved by Marvel and actual work on the screenplay will start soon. Read more of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 update below. Read More »

Spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy follow.
The ending of Guardians of the Galaxy is perfect. The day is won, Star Lord gets his ship back, he opens up that new Awesome Mix and we get to see a montage of a bunch of the main characters. However, at a press event for the upcoming Blu-ray release of the film, writer/director James Gunn revealed that final montage originally contained three extra characters: The Collector (Benicio Del Toro), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Grandpa Quill (Gregg Henry). Each character shot an ending to their story that was going to be used in that scene, but was eventually cut out.
We spoke to Gunn after that revelation and asked for a few more details. He gave them up, and his explanation of what happened to Nebula, The Collector and Grandpa Quill describes an alternate ending to Guardians of the Galaxy.

We’ve already seen the scruffy outlaw heroes and the rigid law enforcement types of Guardians of the Galaxy. But no outer-space superhero adventure would be complete without some baddies, so today it’s time to meet the guys and gal who’ll be giving the Guardians hell.

These days it feels like every horror movie can be easily categorized. Either it’s a possession movie, a found footage movie, a slasher movie or some inane combination. Finding something different is rare. Mike Flanagan‘s Oculus, at the very least, strives to be different. Combining elements from several subgenre columns into something that feels new and fresh, Oculus is the story of a brother and sister who try to destroy a haunted mirror that drives people to wild hallucinations, blurring lines between what’s real and what’s not.
Flanagan’s script is a psychological jumping bean as it hops wildly between multiple timelines, putting the audiences in the shoes of the characters, everyone totally unaware of precisely what’s going on. The whole thing has a fluid feeling that’s not exactly innovative, but exciting enough to potentially kick off a new franchise. Read more of our Oculus movie review below. Read More »

You’d think a character convinced that a mirror had somehow killed her parents would spend the rest of her life avoiding all mirrors at all costs. But in the new Oculus trailer, Kaylie (Karen Gillan) does just the opposite, going out of her way to track the item down.
She claims it’s all in an effort to clear the name of her brother Tim (Brenton Thwaites), but the way she strokes and coos at it suggests she has a sick fascination that goes beyond any responsibility to her sibling. And as Oculus is a horror movie, it’s not long before her attempt to right some wrongs starts to go horrifyingly awry. Watch the video after the jump.
