kingsman 3 script

Matthew Vaughn is rapidly expanding his Kingsman movie franchise, which began with the hit 2014 adaptation of the Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar comic, Kingsman: The Secret Service. But while we can soon expect the Ralph Fiennes-starring prequel film The King’s Man and potential TV series, we haven’t heard much news about Kingsman 3. However, Kingsman star Taron Egerton has confirmed that the third Kingsman film already has a script. And if there’s a Kingsman 3 script, then news of production is probably not too far away.

Jay and SIlent Bob Reboot Clips

Tuesday, October 15 brings Jay and Silent Bob Reboot to theaters across the country for one night only (unless you want to catch it in a double feature with Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back in theaters on Thursday, October 17). If you can’t make it out to theater on either of those day, and you missed out on tickets for the Reboot Roadshow, there are some Jay and Silent Bob Reboot clips that can hold you over until the movie eventually becomes available on home video.

Brodie’s Secret Stash

Jason Lee is one of the many returning cast members from previous Kevin Smith movies. In this new clip from Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, his character Brodie Bruce explains what a reboot is to Jay and Silent Bob, essentially recreating the scene where Holden McNeil (Ben Affleck, who will also be appearing in this movie) explained the concept of the internet to the clueless duo. There’s obviously some meta comedy at play here, and it wouldn’t be a Kevin Smith movie without a Star Wars reference. But were you anticipating a reference to Jason Lee’s work in the Alvin and the Chipmunks sequel?

This clip makes me miss seeing Jason Lee in movies and TV shows. But I’m sure he’s enjoying being mostly retired, with the exception of doing voiceover for IHOP commercials. Maybe he’ll make a return after appearing in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Or maybe he just cashed his motherfuckin’ movie check and went back home.

IN 5 DAYS, marvel at the invincible IRON BOB when @jayandsilentbob Reboot in a theater near you! (Go to the @fathomevents or the @cineplexmovies for details and theaters!) Making movies has always been a bit about wish fulfillment for me – so as far back as when Silent Bob pulled a Batman off the elevator in #mallrats, I’ve added bits into my flicks that allow me to be my heroes for a moment in a movie. Considering I Bluntsaber battled the one and only @hamillhimself in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback, it’s understandable that I’d wanna climb inside a Mark I knockoff suit (built by @rlkurtzman) and be Tony Stark in #JayAndSilentBobReboot! And in my role as Bluntman V Chronic movie director Kevin Smith, I also get to invoke @marvel while paraphrasing one of my favorite lines from Strike Back! Check us out next week Tuesday and Thursday in the U.S. and Tuesday and Friday in Canada! #KevinSmith #JasonMewes #sabanfilms #fathomevents #cineplexevents

Invincible Iron Bob

This second clip appears to take place at Chronic-Con, the convention dedicated to Bluntman and Chronic. We’re not sure what happens leading up to this moment, but Silent Bob busts through one of the convention doors in a knockoff of the Mark I Iron Man suit from the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in 2008. Making another reference to a line from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, none other than Kevin Smith appears as himself (the director of the Bluntman v Chronic movie) saying, “Ohhh, Marvel gonna sue somebody.”

The more I see of this movie, no matter how much Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes have aged, and no matter how dated the comedy seems to be in it, I’m still looking forwarding to giving it a whirl. As someone who became a big Kevin Smith fan in high school, I still like seeing him play with his old characters. And since pretty much all of them are coming back for this one, it should be a lot of fun. If you need any more convincing, here’s a new promo spot:

terminator dark fate clip

Sarah Connor sure knows how to make an entrance. In a new Terminator: Dark Fate clip, Linda Hamilton‘s iconic character comes charging in, guns blazing. It’s a truly badass moment, and also features a confirmation that there’s more than one villainous Terminator afoot in the film. Watch the Terminator: Dark Fate clip below.

daniel isn't real trailer

Imaginary friends rarely get a good rap in horror movies, and Daniel Isn’t Real is no exception. But the twist with Adam Egypt Mortimer‘s psychedelic doppelganger thriller is that the imaginary friend in question here is an edgy teen (Patrick Schwarzenegger) who starts to wreak havoc on the life of troubled student Luke (Miles Robbins), who has been given some very bad advice from his therapist. Watch the Daniel Isn’t Real trailer below.

Shang-Chi logo

At this past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton took the stage in Hall H to introduce Simu Liu, the star of his upcoming superhero movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the first Marvel Studios film with an Asian protagonist. The presence of the organization in the film’s title – the Ten Rings, the terrorist group that captured Iron Man in the very first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie – is essentially all we know about the movie up to this point. But in a new interview, Cretton has revealed that the film will be tonally similar to The Matrix, Lilly and Lana Wachowski’s game-changing 1999 sci-fi action masterpiece.

And to ensure that the film feels appropriately Matrix-y, Cretton and Marvel have hired The Matrix cinematographer Bill Pope to shoot Shang-Chi. Read Cretton’s recent comments below.

weekend box office joker addams family gemini man

The weekend box office returns are in, and once again, Joker reigns supreme. The Todd Phillips movie starring Joaquin Phoenix as a crazy killer clown who loves to dance ended up at the top of the box office for the second week in a row. As far as new releases go, The Addams Family had a strong opening at second place. But Gemini Man, starring Will Smith and Will Smith, had trouble drawing a crowd. The real winner of the weekend, though, was Bong Joon Ho‘s Parasite, which only opened in three theaters, but hauled in the largest per-theater average of the year.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Rocketeer TV series Billy Campbell

A strong case could be made that Disney’s 1991 film The Rocketeer is the best comic book movie Hollywood has ever produced. Director Joe Johnston delivered pitch-perfect execution of the film’s soaring adventure story, sparking the imaginations of a generation and wonderfully capturing the spirit of comic book writer/artist Dave Stevens‘ 1930s-era stories of derring-do. Sadly, the film tanked at the box office (it opened the same weekend as Terminator 2), and a sequel has yet to materialize.

But Disney recognizes the value in that piece of intellectual property – the company is keeping the franchise alive in the form of a new animated series on Disney Junior. And they’ve hired the movie’s leading man, actor Billy Campbell, to lend his voice to the new show. But he won’t be reprising the role of hotshot stunt pilot Cliff Secord in The Rocketeer TV series. Read on to find out who Campbell is playing instead. Read More »
