Harry Dean Stanton Dead

The beginning of the weekend brings sad news as veteran character actor Harry Dean Stanton died at age 91.

Harry Dean Stanton wasn’t a name that many audience members would know unless they were huge cinephiles, but he was a welcome presence in any film, often playing bit parts in various movies and TV shows over the years, effortlessly bringing them to life with his signature succinct charm. If you need a better idea of how great Stanton was at his job, film critic Roger Ebert once said, “No movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad.”

We remember the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton below. Read More »

Minions. Henchmen. Sidekicks. Soldiers. Call them whatever you want, but every worthy villain has a bunch of them, ready to do their evil bidding.

By the time Avengers: Infinity War rolls into theaters, Thanos, the Big Bad of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will have been sitting around on his space throne and getting nothing accomplished for six whole years. And from the sound of things, he may not have too much to do in the next movie. Mainly because he has a group of henchmen who will be doing the dirty work for him.

We’ve been hearing for some time that Thanos will be backed up by a group known as the Black Order in Infinity War. However, a new rumor suggests that this team has been given a cinematic makeover that will differentiate them from their comic book counterparts. They may be Thanos’ children.
