MoviePass, the movie ticket subscription service that was flying high in early 2018, has been barely clinging to life for the past few months. Their financial failure and series of bone-headed decisions have been well-documented, but if you thought things couldn’t get any worse for them, think again: parent company Helios and Matheson Analytics is under investigation in New York for potentially misleading investors. Yikes. Read More »
CBS All Access plans to boldly expand its roster of Star Trek TV shows…but not too quickly.
A new report says that the network doesn’t want to make the mistake of having fans become oversaturated with new Star Trek content. So instead of having a new season of a Star Trek show airing year round, the various series will be spread out a little to keep interest high. Plus, each of the new shows is intended to have its own “tonal vision”, which will draw distinct lines around the types of Trek series All Access will produce. Read more about the network’s plan below.

Is the upcoming Fast & Furious spin-off film quick enough to maneuver its way through a court of law and come out unscathed? We’re about to find out.

People dressed in cat suits dance across a trash heap, singing about which of them will be chosen by the Jellicle Leader. An armored figure steps from the shadows. It’s Idris Elba‘s Stacker Pentecost from Pacific Rim, and he’s here to cancel the catpocalypse. /daydream
Back in reality, Idris Elba is the latest actor to come on board Les Miserables director Tom Hooper‘s Cats movie musical, joining an eclectic cast of performers who range from Taylor Swift to Sir Ian McKellen. And as interesting as a multi-franchise crossover would be, Elba probably won’t be reprising his Pacific Rim role in this movie. (Probably.) Read more about the long-in-the-works Cats film below.

Mondo has done it again with their First Man vinyl. The company enlisted artist Marc Aspinall to create a beautiful piece of art that captures the essence of Damien Chazelle‘s new Neil Armstrong biopic, and the moon-themed design of the record itself and the eerie interior photo makes this presentation arguably even better than composer Justin Hurwitz‘s score. Take a closer look below. Read More »
In the Conjuring universe, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga play married paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Thus far, the pair haven’t figured prominently in any of the cinematic universe’s spin-off movies, appearing in The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 and skipping out on the Annabelle franchise and the recent The Nun.

Ant-Man and the Wasp isn’t a movie filled with important universe-altering events. There were plenty of those in Avengers: Infinity War, and director Peyton Reed made the smart decision of not trying to compete with that gargantuan effort; instead, he made a smaller scale film that’s easily one of the funniest films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But one of the ways the movie does tie in to the studio’s larger tapestry is in its mid-credits scene. In a new interview, star Evangeline Lilly has revealed that the Ant-Man and the Wasp original ending was slightly different than the one we saw in theaters, and she’s “grateful” the version they shot didn’t make it into the final cut.

Did Chris Evans accidentally spoil Avengers 4 when he recently tweeted about how he was saying goodbye to the character of Captain America? No! Well, at least that’s what he wants us to think. Evans recently appeared at a comic convention in Chicago to clarify his comment and reassure fans that he did not, in fact, ruin anything about the fate of the Star Spangled man with a plan. But maybe, just maybe, Marvel security got to him and are now orchestrating an elaborate cover-up campaign to throw fans off the scent.
Eh, probably not, though. Chances are pretty good that Evans is simply just telling the truth. Keep reading to learn about how he didn’t actually spoil Avengers 4.
