Since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is now home for you to watch maybe a few times before you forget about it entirely, it’s time to think about how the movie really should have ended. In this case, that’s much more important than usual since the ending to the sequel to the reboot of Jurassic Park is totally bonkers and takes the franchise in a totally new and weird direction.
Find out How Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Should Have Ended below. Read More »
Legendary film star Charles Bronson starred in five Death Wish movies over the course of his career, but the actor passed away in 2003. There have been dozens of knock-off films since then (and even a remake starring Bruce Willis earlier this year), but none like Death Kiss, a new low-budget affair that appears to resurrect Bronson from the grave for another round of revenge against the scum of the streets.
But appearances can be deceiving: that’s not a resurrected Bronson or even a digital recreation – it’s an actor named Robert Kovacs who happens to look exactly like Charles Bronson circa 1974. Check him out in action below.

Eli Roth, splatter-horror filmmaker extraordinaire, directing a kid’s movie headlined by Cate Blanchett and Jack Black? With a team like that, how could The House with a Clock in its Walls possibly turn out? Apparently, exactly how you’d expect it to turn out, according to critics.
Early buzz of the fantasy film adapting John Bellairs’ 1973 children’s novel of the same name says that The House with a Clock in its Walls has all the hallmarks of its family-fantasy genre and none of the hallmarks of director Roth’s gory repertoire. But that’s fine, because with an enthusiastic Blanchett and Black leading the fantasy film, The House with a Clock in its Walls is perfectly attuned to its target demographic — and not much else.
Find out what critics have to say in our round-up of The House with a Clock in its Walls early buzz.

Eight years after M. Night Shyamalan desecrated Avatar: The Last Airbender with his feature film that won’t be named, Netflix has announced a second attempt to adapt the matchless Nickelodeon animated series as a live-action show. But wait — before you freak out and go into the Avatar State, there’s a silver lining to this seemingly ill-advised project.
Original creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are on board to oversee the Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series, which will “reimagine” the beloved Nickelodeon series. But even with DiMartino and Konietzko on board, can they fulfill the fans’ biblical expectations for a series that will likely require a biblical scale and budget? After Netflix has teamed up with several other Avatar: The Last Airbender alums to great success, maybe this might actually be a match made in heaven.

Nearly 14 years after the premiere of ABC’s mega-hit drama LOST, showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse reunited at the John Ansin Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles this past weekend for We Have to Go Back: The LOST Concert 2018. They were on hand to introduce composer Michael Giacchino, arguably the most valuable player of the entire series. Giacchino conducted many of the show’s most memorable songs over the course of the evening and even debuted a brand new track from the upcoming film Bad Times at the El Royale.
We’ve compiled some of the highlights from the event into a video below. Watch as surprise guest cast members read sections from the show’s script, Lindelof and Cuse talk about their unorthodox practice of writing Giacchino’s name into the episode scripts, and much more. Read More »

Chewbacca has always been a supporting player in the Star Wars universe, but in this year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, he was promoted to one of the primary protagonists. As a much more involved character, he needed a larger range of vocal noises here than in any previous film, so the team at Skywalker Sound set out to capture some animal noises that would provide the basis for the Wookiee’s voice in the new movie.
In a new behind-the-scenes video, you can watch the sound team recording growls from a bear and a seal to pump up Chewie’s vocabulary. Plus, we have a few more bonus features, including a look at Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s L3 droid costume and screenwriters Lawrence and Jon Kasdan talking about working with each other on the movie.

What do you get when you mix an invisible hunter-alien with thermal vision, two future U.S. governors, the man who played Apollo Creed in Rocky, and a band of other hypermasculine types in the jungle? To paraphrase Carl Weathers (as himself) in Arrested Development: “Baby, you got a stew going.”
It’s a stew of meatheads and monster menace. The word “testosterone” is one you’ll hear tossed around a lot in reference to Predator, the original 1987 movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. With the way the camera luxuriates in Schwarzenegger’s bulging bicep as he clasps hands with Weathers and flexes, it’s easy to see why. His character, Dutch, is the last we see disembark the chopper at the beginning of the movie. One by one, Dutch’s men have come filing out of the chopper until the hero is revealed kicking back in his seat, sporting aviator sunglasses and chomping on a cigar. Predator exudes machismo right from the get-go. There’s more to this movie, however, than off-color jokes and muscle-bound men on a mission.
One of the men in Dutch’s elite unit is, of course, played by a young Shane Black, whose screenwriting career had gotten off to a big start that year with Lethal Weapon. Now Black is back as the director of The Predator, the sixth overall movie in the franchise (counting crossovers with Aliens). As this newest installment hits theaters, let’s take a look back at what made the first Predator so great.
