For some reason, there are still some people in the United States who think they don’t need to be cautious about how often they leave their homes when the coronavirus pandemic is spreading across the country. That’s why every week (maybe even every other day), there’s a new PSA from various famous faces providing some sound, valuable advice to Americans about how to behave during this delicate and dangerous time for the world. And the latest additions are absolutely perfect.
Larry David calls out some of “the idiots out there” who aren’t staying home, and by association, putting old old, grumpy guys like the Curb Your Enthusiasm star at risk. Meanwhile, Samuel L. Jackson takes a more commanding approach by reading a book called Stay the F— Home, a variation on Adam Mansbach‘s best-selling book Go the F— to Sleep, which the Pulp Fiction star previously read online too.

I always love it when actors test their limits and push themselves to try things they’ve never done before. That’s why I’m thrilled that Samuel L. Jackson will be playing – get this – a retired hitman in a new untitled movie from the directors of Focus. Jackson as a hitman? What a concept! Read More »

Since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is wrapping up the Skywalker saga, it’s pretty much the last time for some key characters to make a significant appearance in the long-running sci-fi saga. And since it’s the end of an era in a galaxy far, far away, there are plenty of people who wanted to get in on the last chapter of the story that began all the way back in 1977.
That’s why there are plenty of cameos to behold in The Rise of Skywalker, some in the form of new characters, others being characters from previous installments of Star Wars. We’ve got a list of all the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker cameos that we know of so far, but beware of major spoilers as we name them. Read More »
Apple has delayed the release of its upcoming movie The Banker because of sexual assault claims against Bernard Garrett, Jr., the son of one of the film’s main subjects, Bernard Garrett, Sr. This Wednesday, just one day before the film was set to premiere at this year’s AFI Festival in Hollywood, the movie was pulled from the festival’s schedule and replaced with Marriage Story instead because of the allegations. The Banker was originally going to hit theaters on December 6, but today Apple announced that they have delayed the release indefinitely as the company investigates the claims against Garrett Jr.

Apple TV+ has already launched, and with it has come a handful of new shows for subscribers to users to take a chance on. But Apple isn’t just making new TV shows. They’ve got original movies on the way too, and the first major theatrical release from the tech company will be arriving next month.
The Banker is a true story following Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson as two black businessmen who concoct a plan to subvert the racist system that keeps black families from moving into white neighborhoods. The first trailer has arrived, and with one of their first of many hopeful theatrical releases, it would seem as if Apple is hoping to make a run at awards season right out of the gate. Watch The Banker trailer below. Read More »
If you’d like to replace the soothing current voice of Amazon’s Alexa with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson, you’re in luck. Amazon is planning on releasing celebrity voices for their Alexa devices, and Jackson’s will be the first. You’ll be able to use two different versions of the Samuel L. Jackson Alexa: explicit and non-explicit. And let’s be honest, you’re going to use the explicit one. No one wants to hear a censored Samuel L. Jackson.

Last night, Kevin Feige was given the Stan Lee World Builder Award at the 2019 Saturn Awards, honoring the best in sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Feige wasn’t on-hand to accept the award in-person, but he did send along a heartfelt thank you, and he included a special surprise for everyone in attendance and tuning in online.
During his acceptance speech, Kevin Feige announced that there will be a box set released later this year that contains all 23 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that make up what is now called The Infinity Saga. That might not sound like a big deal since all of those movies are available on home video, but this box set will sweeten the collection with deleted scenes and other footage that has been locked up in Marvel’s vault. To tease the kind of footage he’s talking about, Feige introduced an alternate, never-before-seen alternate credits scene for Iron Man, which references Spider-Man, Hulk and X-Men. Watch it below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Chris Rock‘s Saw reboot just got a heck of a lot cooler. Samuel L. Jackson has officially joined the cast of the new film, taking on the role of Rock’s father. The new Saw comes courtesy of an original idea by Rock, and while plot details are slim, there’s a good bet killer booby traps will be involved in some capacity. And if we get really lucky, Samuel L. Jackson will say the f-word. Read More »
In 2019’s Shaft, the latest film to take on the name of the 1971 Blaxploitation classic, Samuel L. Jackson‘s John Shaft II bemoans the softening-up of the younger generation, and their fixation with tight pants, coconut water, and lemon towers. “Men need to be men,” he declares to his straight-laced son John Shaft Jr. (Jessie Usher), mourning the good old days when real men shot first and asked questions later. But there’s something to mourn about the new Shaft‘s shift from a cop thriller to sitcom, and how it spends more time making digs at the very millennial audience that it’s supposedly appealing to than reminding the us of why we dug Shaft in the first place.
Shaft trades the franchise’s Blaxploitation action for a buddy-cop routine that only works by the sheer force of Samuel L. Jackson’s charisma. But even Jackson can’t will this movie into being more than a creaky action-comedy that zaps out everything that made the original Shaft such a vibrant and time-honored classic.
