It’s been a few years since we’ve gotten Tim Burton‘s traditional weirdness on the big screen. The last time the director was at the helm of a film, it was the biographical drama Big Eyes. Before that, Burton delivered a double dose of his signature goofy gothic style with the lackluster Dark Shadows, and the solid stop-motion animated Frankenweenie. Now he’s back to bringing a new band of misfits to theaters with his latest project.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is based on the novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs with a story following a boy named Jake (Asa Butterfield) who discovers a mysterious orphanage populated by kids who have strange powers and abilities. However, as soon as he becomes comfortable in this odd place, he learns it may be in danger from hidden enemies who are hunting these kids for their powers.

I’d say “I can’t believe they made another xXx movie,” but in a year where we’ve gotten sequels for everything from Independence Day: Resurgence to Snow White and the Huntsman, of freaking course they made another xXx movie. After all, Vin Diesel is bigger now than he’s ever been, but even he can’t make another Fast and the Furious movie every year. Why not squeeze him into a different action-adventure in the meantime?
Directed by D.J. Caruso, xXx: Return of Xander Cage brings the extreme-sports-enthusiast-turned-spy out of retirement for a dangerous new assignment. Samuel L. Jackson is back as his handler, Augustus Gibbons, and the supporting cast includes Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, and Kris Wu. Watch the first xXx: Return of Xander Cage trailer below.

So you’ve finally decided to cave and see what this Game of Thrones show is about. Unfortunately, if you’re just joining us now, that means you’re behind by a full 60 hours of dragons, ice zombies, and super-intense politicking. Fortunately, Samuel L. Jackson is here to get you up to speed in no time.
The Oscar-nominated actor has a hilarious profanity-laden recap of the fantasy drama which will get you up to speed in under eight minutes. The video focuses mostly on the first five seasons, so you’re more or less on your own with regard to season six. But that’s still a savings of just under 50 hours. Oh, and if you’ve already seen all six seasons of Game of Thrones, that’s okay — you’ll still want to watch this because, well, it’s a Samuel L. Jackson Game of Thrones recap. Read More »
One of the better characters created in the Star Wars prequels was Mace Windu, the Jedi master played by Samuel L. Jackson. If you forgive him for that awful “This party’s over” line from Attack of the Clones, he’s actually a pretty bad ass Jedi. But unfortunately, Mace Windu died at the hands of the Dark Side.
In a battle with Darth Sidious after Anakin Skywalker had turned to the dark side, not only did Skywalker cut off Windu’s arm, but Sidious struck him with Force lightning and then Force pushed him out the window. So we all know that Mace Windu died in Revenge of the Sith. But what Samuel L. Jackson presupposes is, maybe he didn’t? And it sounds like George Lucas was just fine with that. However, at this point, it probably doesn’t matter. Get the details on the possibilities of Mace Windu alive after the jump. Read More »

With The Legend of Tarzan set to swing into theaters July 1, Warner Bros. is making one final push to get you into theaters. An extremely buff Alexander Skarsgård stars as iconic hero, who’s since left his jungle roots behind to settle down as John Clayton III, Lord Greystroke, in 19th century England. He’s happily married to Jane (Margot Robbie), and life is comfortable if a bit dull. Then he’s called back to the Congo thanks to a convoluted plot masterminded by the evil Captain Léon Rom (Christoph Waltz). The only way to survive is to embrace his animal side once more.

The last time Tim Burton and Eva Green teamed up, we got the fairly awful Dark Shadows adaptation. To be sure, the film’s failures weren’t Green’s fault — indeed, she was one of the few bright spots in it. Still, here’s hoping their new collaboration will turn out better.
Based on the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children stars Asa Butterfield as a seemingly ordinary teenager who discovers a hidden refuge for “peculiars” — people with extraordinary powers. As he gets to know the ins and outs of this secret world, he realizes they’re all in danger, and that he’s the only one who can save them.

Warner Bros. will try to keep the Harry Potter franchise alive on the big screen later this year with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, directed by fantasy franchise helmer David Yates. But before that, the studio is taking a chance on the director’s adaptation of the classic Edgar Rice Burrough’s character Tarzan.
A new The Legend of Tarzan trailer has just arrived from IMAX, and this one lays out much more of the ape man’s origin story than we’ve seen in previous footage, including information about his parents, and some sneak peeks of how he was raised by apes. Will this be worthy of such a prime summer release date? Read More »
