Following the smashing success of 2014’s The Lego Movie, Warner Bros. has been building up its Lego movie franchise brick by brick. Next up will be The Lego Batman Movie, out in February, but after that comes Ninjago. That one will be based on Lego’s Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu line of toys, which already has its own video game and TV series. Development has been pretty quiet so far, but expect to hear more and more as its 2017 release date inches closer.
Today, for example, we have the Ninjago voice cast list to share with you. And it’s good news if you like to laugh. Jackie Chan will lead as Master Wu, and the others include two Silicon Valley stars, one-half of the Broad City duo, a Saturday Night Live alum, and more. Read More »

In a few weeks we’ll see Alexander Skarsgård as king of the jungle in The Legend of Tarzan, but later this year he’ll get in touch with his wild side in an entirely different way. Directed by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard, Calvary), War on Everyone stars Skarsgård and Michael Peña as two very corrupt cops who get in over their heads in New Mexico. If Shane Black’s The Nice Guys left you wanting more in the “pitch-black buddy action-comedy” subgenre, War on Everyone should have you covered.
War on Everyone hit Berlin and SXSW earlier this year to strong reviews, and now it’s gearing up for a theatrical release in the U.K. (No U.S. release date has been announced yet, alas.) As smuch, the first War on Everyone red-band trailer has just arrived, and you can watch it after the jump. Read More »
It’s always interesting to see what the Honest Trailer for a good movie chooses to poke fun at, and in the case of Marvel Studios isolated superhero heist movie Ant-Man, that’s exactly what we get to see. As the Ant-Man Honest Trailer points out, against all odds, this movie actually kinda works. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s basically the exact same plot of Iron Man, but just with a different kind of suit. Read More »
Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post:
- How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?
- How was Spider-Man inserted into the plan they already had leading towards The Avengers: Infinity War?
- Does Marvel have plans for Fantastic Four and X-Men in the chance they get the rights back?
- Will The Marvel television characters or storylines ever appear in the Marvel movies? Would characters be recast?
- Why didn’t Captain Marvel and other Marvel character have a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?
- When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?
- When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?
- How does Howard The Duck make it back to Earth?
- When will Marvel One Shots short films return?

Even as our current James Bond suits up for his next adventure, fans have started talking about about who could, or should, replace Daniel Craig. In particular, there’s been much speculation about whether the next Bond could be played by a non-white actor for the first time in franchise history.
For his part, former Bond Pierce Brosnan says he sees “no reason” why we couldn’t have a black Bond. Meanwhile, Chiwetel Ejiofor (himself a popular fan pick for the role) suggests Michael Peña should be the next one to pick up 007’s signature Walther PPK. Read the Pierce Brosnan black James Bond comments after the jump. Read More »

This time, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examines the upcoming mission in the style of the recent Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series.

In a world of kid-friendly CG animations, Hell and Back stands out as an R-rated, stop-motion endeavor. T.J. Miller and Nick Swardson lead the irreverent voice cast as Augie and Remy, who must journey into the underworld to rescue their buddy Curt (Rob Riggle).
Once there, they encounter all manner of colorful characters including a devious demon voiced by Mila Kunis, a sexy angel voiced by Susan Sarandon, and the Devil himself, voiced by Bob Odenkirk.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Before the first trailer for Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi drama The Martian debuted, 20th Century Fox teased the film with a viral video from the video archives of the Ares 3, the latest mission to Mars. And now a second viral video has debuted with Matt Damon and the rest of his crew being interviewed by a NASA psychologist after experiencing 10 days in isolation.
From the video it’s made pretty clear that Damon has no problem being stuck by himself for 10 days, with the most pressing question he has upon emerging being about Aquaman’s abilities. And honestly, it’s a perfectly valid question. Watch The Martian viral video after the jump! Read More »
