The Tick Canceled

Sorry, The Tick fans, but it seems the superhero’s big blue destiny is officially cancellation.

Last month, Amazon canceled The Tick after two seasons, and fans were rightfully disappointed. But at the time, series creator Ben Edlund offered a spark of hope that the series might be picked up somewhere else. However, that spark was officially washed out with news that the series could not find a new home. So news of The Tick canceled is final. Read More »

Escape Plan 3 Trailer

Sylvester Stallone has found a certain amount of success reviving the Rocky franchise with Michael B. Jordan as the new leading man, Adonis Creed. But he still can’t help but make some crummy action movies on the side. Case in point: there’s an Escape Plan 3 on the way this summer, and just like Escape Plan 2: Hades, this one isn’t even bothering to play in theaters.

Following a path similar to the second film, Escape Plane: The Extractors finds Ray Breslin (Stallone) breaking into a prison to rescue to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a Hong Kong tech mogul from a formidable Latvian prison. Oh, and it just so happens that his girlfriend (Jaime King) has been kidnapped too. And there’s some good old-fashioned revenge behind the plot this time. Watch the Escape Plan 3 trailer below.

R-Rated Joker Movie

When the prospect of a movie exploring the rise of Batman’s arch nemesis The Joker was first revealed, fans were reasonably skeptical. It’s rarely a good thing to know too much about a villain, and that’s especially true when you’re dealing with a character who is made infinitely more interesting by having an uncertain past.

But after the teaser trailer for Joker arrived, fans have been more intrigued than ever to see what director Todd Phillips and actor Joaquin Phoenix are bringing to Gotham City with the villain’s origin story. And now we know for sure that this won’t be one for the younger Batman fans out there. The filmmaker has confirmed that we’ll be seeing an R-rated Joker movie this fall. Read More »

crazy eddie movie

Jon Turteltaub could give us all what we really want: a third National Treasure movie. Instead, he’s going to direct Insane, a movie about Crazy Eddie Antar, the owner of an electronics chain who ended up in jail after committing one of the greatest securities frauds in history. It will no doubt make for a crazy true story – but will it be as exciting as watching Nicolas Cage running around finding clues hidden by the Founding Fathers? I doubt it.

Russia is not done being mad at HBO’s Chernobyl.

x-men timeline explained

Remember Dark Phoenix? It came out a week ago, but the latest X-Men movie already feels like a thing of a past, primarily because audiences didn’t flock to the film like previous entries in the franchise. Why did Dark Phoenix underperform? Perhaps fans were sick and tired of the franchise’s incredibly confusing continuity. Simply put, the X-Men timeline makes absolutely no sense. But that didn’t stop Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg from trying to explain it.

stuber clip

Customer service can be such a hassle in the new Stuber clip released by 20th Century Fox. While meeting your Uber driver can always be awkward, it doesn’t get more awkward than the first encounter between Kumail Nanjiani’s Stu and Dave Bautista‘s Vic, who probably won’t be giving Stu a five-star rating, despite his offers of chocolates and water. Watch the Stuber clip below.
