Rick and Morty is coming back in a big way this fall. Not only are we finally getting the highly anticipated fourth season of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon‘s Adult Swim series, but this is the first season that’s part of the massive deal that the duo struck with Adult Swim to produce 70 more episodes of Rick and Morty, giving them security and confidence to push through each season and move right on to the next without worrying if they are going to get renewed or not.
Leading up to their forthcoming Comic-Con panel this week, Roiland and Harmon sat down to tease the upcoming forth season. While they’re keeping details pretty close to the vest, they did mention a few guest stars who will be popping up, and they also teased the return of a fan favorite character, though they lamented that just by teasing it they may already be creating anticipating that ends up disappointing fans. Man, these guys are always worried about something. Read More »
There would’ve been no Jurassic Park without Jeff Goldblum‘s Dr. Ian Malcolm. Well, not really, but it’s certainly hard to imagine. As soon as the chaos mathematician stepped into frame with his tinted glasses, leather jacket, and addictively weird laugh, we all knew it was an icon in the making. And then when he bared his chest after getting attacked by a dinosaur, he cemented his place on thousands of teen girls’ bedroom walls.
But, according to Goldblum, the character almost didn’t make it into the movie. There’s no dinosaur more horrifying than that prospect.

Here’s a nice distraction from current events: a final trailer for The Commuter. Liam Neeson, action star, is back once again with lurid, style-overload director Jaume Collet-Serra for a whole new ridiculous thriller. This final trailer is loaded with some shaggy CGI, a quick shot of Sam Neill with a mustache, and explosions. But the real draw here is Neeson, who continues to age like a fine wine while also punching people in the face. Watch The Commuter trailer below.

If you’ve longed for the day when Domhnall Gleeson does battle with a horde of cartoon animals, you’re in luck! In Peter Rabbit, Beatrix Potter’s storybook classic comes to life, sort of, in a modern setting.

Just over the weekend, we got word from Sam Neill that he recently spent a couple days on the set of Thor: Ragnarok, shooting some kind of small role in the Marvel sequel. And with Jeff Goldblum already having a role in the film as The Grandmaster, that means Marvel is hosting a mini Jurassic Park reunion. Sadly that might be as close as we get to Neill and Goldblum getting back together.
While out promoting Hunt for the Wilderpeople (which was also directed by Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi), Neill was asked if he might ever return to the world of dinosaurs in something like Jurassic World 2. Rather than dodging the question or flat out saying now, he offered a narrative reason as to why Dr. Alan Grant may not be available to return. Read More »
The cast of Thor: Ragnarok is already off-the-charts outstanding. Not only are Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston returning as Thor and Loki respectively, but Sir Anthony Hopkins is back as Odin (as we’ve never seen him before), Mark Ruffalo has a sizeable role as Hulk, Tessa Thompson joins the franchise as Valkyrie, and Karl Urban has the role of Skurge. In addition, Cate Blanchett is playing Marvel’s first female villain Hela and Jeff Goldblum is playing the Marvel Comics character known as The Grandmaster. There might even be a cameo from Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. But there’s more.
Now we have word that Thor: Ragnarok will feature a little Jurassic Park reunion as Sam Neill has just revealed that he recently spent a couple days shooting on the Marvel sequel down in Australia. Find out more about Sam Neill in Thor Ragnarok after the jump. Read More »

Not only was What We Do In The Shadows one of my favorite films of 2015, it shocked us all by coming in at #2 on the list of the best movies of the year put together by all of us here at /Film. Right now the film’s director, Taika Waititi, is busy in Australia behind the camera for Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the Marvel Studios franchise. But before he went into superhero territory, Waititi went back to New Zealand for an indie adventure comedy that debuted at Sundance this year and is now readily available for you to watch.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next week, but you can actually buy it on Digital HD right now if you were so inclined. And honestly, it could be the best decision you make this month, or even next month. The film takes the character dynamic of Up and tosses it into the brush of New Zealand with adorable hilarity that only Taika Waititi can deliver. If you need any more convincing, you can watch the first 10 minutes of Hunt for the Wilderpeople after the jump. Read More »

Note: With Hunt for the Wilderpeople in limited release this weekend, we’re re-running our review from the Sundance Film Festival.
Taika Waititi had a minor breakthrough last year with What We Do in the Shadows, and is about to have a much bigger one with Thor: Ragnarok, but in between he’s managed to squeeze in the delightful Hunt for the Wilderpeople. A sort of live-action Up with dashes of Roald Dahl, Wes Anderson, and Thelma & Louise, all filtered through Waititi’s own warm, offbeat sense of humor, Wilderpeople looks destined to become a new childhood classic.
