Production on the first big screen iteration of Aquaman is scheduled to being in just a few months. The film is currently in pre-production, and part of the preparation includes getting the principal cast together with director James Wan for a table read.
In fact, that key part of the filmmaking process just happened this week as James Wan posted a photo with the underwater superhero (Jason Momoa) as well as Mera (Amber Heard) and the villainous Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson). Check out the gang getting together after the jump. Read More »
Fans of Pixar Animation’s family superhero movie The Incredibles have been waiting over a decade for a sequel to get off the ground. Many have been clamoring for The Incredibles 2 ever since the end of the first movie teased another outing for the super-powered family, albeit in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, and now the movie is finally in production.
After development of The Incredibles 2 was finally confirmed back in 2014, Samuel L. Jackson has revealed by way of a post on Instagram that he’s back in the recording booth to record lines as the cool superhero Frozone. Check out The Incredibles 2 photo tease after the jump. Read More »
Fans of Stranger Things who also happen to be fans of the comedy series Parks and Recreation have noticed that Joe Keery (who plays Steve on Netflix’s sci-fi show) looks an awful lot like Ben Schwartz, who played Jean-Ralphio Saperstein on the NBC comedy series. Fans hypothesized that since Stranger Things is set in the fictional Indiana town of Hawkins in the 1980s, it only made sense that he would turn out to be the father of Jean-Ralphio in Parks and Recreation‘s fictional Indiana town of Pawnee.
Thankfully, Ben Schwartz took the time to confirm this theory on The Late Late Show with James Corden back in August, and now we get to see father and son reunited in a series of photos posted to social media by the two actors.

Since director Ridley Scott is busy working on Alien: Covenant right now, director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) has to wait to get his own chapter in the Alien franchise off the ground. The project first came about when he shared some concept art online, and that turned into a real project being developed at 20th Century Fox with Sigourney Weaver back as Ripley and perhaps even Michael Biehn back from the dead as Hicks.
However, when Scott decided to get his follow-up to the Alien prequel Prometheus off the ground quickly, the project that has become known as Alien 5 was put on the backburner. The good news is that leaves Blomkamp with some spare time to work on something completely different, and he just teased a new project with a photo on Instagram teasing some kind of grotesque, deformed human or monsters.

Presumably, there’s a whole galaxy that is chock full of eclectic music in the Star Wars universe. However, fans have only heard a very limited amount of it in the Star Wars movies. There’s Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes (aka the Cantina Band) from Star Wars: A New Hope, Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band from Return of the Jedi, and the unnamed Star Wars: The Force Awakens band in Maz Kanata’s cantina which is composed of Taybin Ralorsa, Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins, Ubert “Sticks” Quaril, and Sudswater Dillifay Glon.
But what if the rest of the characters we know in the Star Wars universe all had albums of their own inspired by a variety of popular albums from Earth? One artist has recreated some familiar album covers from the likes of Eminem, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Band, Queen, Rage Against the Machine, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, but using characters from the Star Wars universe in place of the artists and their album artwork.

Even though VHS tapes have long been dead, there are plenty of people who miss the unique cover art that used to come with them. There was something special about the VHS covers that we would see lined up on the shelves of our local video stores, and it’s just not the same with all the glossy, Photoshopped covers we see on most Blu-ray and DVD releases today.
Thankfully, another artist named Steelberg has decided to make even more modern VHS covers for movies released in the past couple years, and they’ll make you wish you could stumble upon these movies, take them home, forget to rewind them and pay a late fee. After the jump, you’ll find modern movie VHS covers for Stranger Things, Ready Player One, Creed, It Follows, The Final Girls, Pacific Rim and more. Read More »
The entire Marvel Studios panel from Comic-Con was a real treat for fans who waited in line overnight to get a taste of what the future holds for their favorite comic book heroes. But one of the highlights was undoubtedly the panel for Thor: Ragnarok. Since there wasn’t much footage to be glimpsed as the production had only been up and running for a week or two, director Taika Waititi put together a little mockumentary with Thor living in an average apartment with some random dude. It was hilarious, and you can get our whole recap of what was show in our coverage from the Marvel Comic-Con panel right here.
Thankfully, after that hilarious short, fans were treated to a bunch of behind the scenes footage, concept art and animatics teasing what’s to come in the third installment of Thor’s franchise. One of the more intriguing parts was a shot of Thor on a blue screen soundstage with warpaint on his face and an extremely short haircut. Now we get a look at Chris Hemsworth with his short new do in a couple Thor Ragnarok set photos posted to Instagram by co-star Mark Ruffalo. Check them out below. Read More »
Yesterday marked exactly one year until we see Spider-Man return to the big screen in his own movie with Spider-Man: Homecoming. To tease what Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have in store, the film’s star Tom Holland took to Instagram to post an awesome selfie from the set. Not only does it show Holland in the Spider-Man suit, but it also shows him hanging high above the film’s crew, just like a spider can. Check out the Spider-Man Homecoming set photo after the jump.
