Urban will play the leader of the superhero monitoring team. Read on for more info on The Boys cast.

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.)
No one would ever accuse the Marvel Cinematic Universe of being dark and serious, but with Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel goes into full-comedy mode, crafting their funniest film to date. Perhaps finally realizing how inconsequential and dry the Thor films have been, Marvel hired What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi and let him go wild. The results are laugh-out-loud funny, albeit with a caveat: Thor: Ragnarok cares more about landing a great punchline or sight-gag than it does about plot.

If Dredd was the only time we got to see Karl Urban as the titular character, that’d be a shame. From the very start of the action movie, he was Judge Dredd. While some actors might’ve looked ridiculous in that suit and helmet, not for a second did Urban. He had a huge presence that helped make the contained action movie a little grander. A sequel to the film isn’t going to happen, but Judge Dredd: Mega-City One is in the works. According to Urban, he’s having talks with the people behind the show about reprising the role.
Below, Urban discusses the Judge Dredd TV show.

As excited as we are to meet the new leads of Pacific Rim: Uprising, including the lead character played by John Boyega, we’ve also been curious about which stars from the original might resurface. Although producer Guillermo del Toro has promised that “a lot” of familiar faces would return, more concrete details have been hard to come by. But now that shooting on Pacific Rim: Uprising is officially underway, a new set photo might have revealed some big news.
It looks like Rinko Kikuchi will be back as Mako Mori, along with Charlie Day and Burn Gorman as previously rumored. Not only that, it seems Karl Urban may be part of the cast as well.
UPDATE: Karl Urban has responded to rumors of his being in Pacific Rim: Uprising. See what he had to say below. Read More »
Star Trek Beyond shows a new side of the enterprise crew. While J.J. Abrams‘ Trek films are very dedicated to Kirk and Spock’s relationship, Justin Lin‘s sequel breathes more life into the supporting characters. Thanks to screenwriters Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, they have more time to shine, especially “Bones” McCoy. The good doctor is played by Karl Urban, who almost passed on his third outing as the character.
Below, learn why we almost didn’t see Karl Urban in Star Trek Beyond.

It’s been a great year for Walt Disney Pictures with success in both live-action and animation. Zootopia is one of the most successful movies of the year, Finding Dory was a huge box office hit, and the live-action remake of The Jungle Book may be the best revision of their classic animated movies yet. But the studio isn’t done bringing magic to movie theaters just yet.
Pete’s Dragon is yet another remake of a classic Disney movie. However, as we’ve seen in the trailers so far, this new take on the 1977 live-action and animated hybrid could not be more different from the original. Basically, the only thing they share is a camaraderie between a young boy and a dragon in the woods. And the more we see from Pete’s Dragon, the more excited I am to see it, and you just might feel the same way after watching a new trailer from across the pond.

After recycling a little too much of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan for the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, the rebooted franchise based on Gene Roddenberry’s classic sci-fi series needed a new direction to bring some freshness back to the final frontier. Thankfully, with Star Trek Beyond, director Justin Lin has managed to craft a extremely entertaining journey back into space for the USS Enterprise. It’s a sequel that blends some of the signature style of the classic Star Trek series with the action sensibilities of a modern blockbuster.

Adding to the barrage of Disney’s remakes, late this summer comes a contemporary take on Pete’s Dragon, the film that blended animation with live-action all the way back in 1977. This looks like a magical update of the old movie from Ain’t Them Bodies Saints director with a performance from young star Oakes Fegley that feels like the kind of child actor that Steven Spielberg would have discovered. But will this movie have the same kind of heart and spirit of adventure of the director’s films? A new Pete’s Dragon TV spot is certainly reassuring, complete with a nice little song to guide us. Watch it below. Read More »
