There’s more to Atlantis than meets the eye. A new Aquaman image reveals that the glorious, underwater kingdom is not the shining city on top of a coral reef that mythology would have you believe. Instead, the Atlantis in Aquaman seems to be subject to the same rival rulers and political turmoil that have plagued human history — just with more great white sharks and sea dragons. Which, to be honest, is infinitely cooler than the lame horses that human warriors have been saddled with.

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren were action movie staples in the 1980s and 1990s, and the two have often shared the screen before – but they’ve always appeared as adversaries.

Read our original article from July 5 below for speculation about how this might play out in the sequel.
Ever since Creed hit theaters in the fall of 2015, surprising us all with just how outstanding a spin-off of Rocky could be, fans have been wondering when/if a sequel would come together. Though MGM CEO Gary Barber once mentioned that he would like to get a Creed sequel together for release in November of this year, that’s certainly not happening.

In fact, one of them seems to flat-out confirm what kind of territory the story could be heading, and it includes a face from the past who could really make things interesting. Read More »

Back in the Ye Olden Tymes, you could walk down the “New Releases” section of your friendly neighborhood video rental establishment and find low-rent sequels to some of your favorite hits from a decade earlier.
