Marvel Reportedly In Talks With Joaquin Phoenix For 'Doctor Strange'
Marvel's big presentation at Comic-Con isn't until Saturday (July 26 at 5:30 PST, to be specific), and people have been wondering for quite some time what exactly they'll be showing off at the event. The most pervasive rumor is that they'd be announcing who will play Doctor Strange for director Scott Derrickson, but Marvel Studios honcho Kevin Fiege has insisted in press all week long that their presentation is going to be dictated by what kind of paperwork is signed by then.
Well, according to The Wrap, who broke the news, the person Marvel is trying to lock down as the sorcerer supreme is none other than Joaquin Phoenix. They stress that no deal has been signed, but that he is most definitely the front runner and has leaped passed rumored contenders like... Read More
See Elsa From 'Frozen' Cross Into The World Of 'Once Upon A Time'
If you’re a channel surfer (or have kids), you may have stumbled upon ABC’s Once Upon A Time, the network’s small-screen adaptation of fairy tale canon. Various characters from famous fables are brought to life in the series, transported to a real-world scenario that’s set in a seaside town called Storybrooke (aw, precious). The fairy tale icons are robbed of their memories by a powerful curse.
Given the popularity of Disney’s Frozen, it was only a matter of time before the film’s heroine showed up as a regular on Once Upon A Time. During the season three finale, Elsa was introduced in the final moments of the episode (watch the scene, below). Georgina Haig (Fringe) will play the Snow Queen, who winds up in Storybrooke after being released... Read More
Wil Wheaton Skewers Hollywood With 'Literally Everything Else From Your Childhood: The Movie' Trailer
It’s a common refrain heard almost daily around the Internet: “Hollywood is destroying my childhood!”
With each new remake or reboot or brand new movie based on a toy or cartoon or concept from the ‘70s and ‘80s, my fellow Gen X’ers get upset – and with good reason. Hollywood has regularly demonstrated that they’re all too happy to try to cash in on nostalgia while often ruining what made the original toys/games/cartoons worthy of remembering in the first place.
Well, Wil Wheaton has had enough of this tomfoolery. To demonstrate how absolutely ludicrous it is that Hollywood can’t be bothered to actually make new things worthy of being nostalgic about in a decade or two instead of just milking the past, he’s released a... Read More
See Mythbuster Adam Savage's Ridiculously Elaborate 'Hellboy' Obsession
Mythbusters host Adam Savage is a notorious movie fan. Not only do they regularly pick apart the reality of great movie moments on the show, but Savage - a former effects designer who did work on movies like Galaxy Quest and the Star Wars prequels - also spends his downtime building replicas of some of his favorite movie props (like Deckard's gun from Blade Runner).
Savage is also a regular Comic-Con attendee, and for this year's event he has seemingly outdone himself with an absurdly detailed replica of the Mecha-Glove from Hellboy.
First, you're probably saying, "I don't even know what the Mecha-Glove from Hellboy is," and that's a totally fair point because the device isn't as iconic as, say, the red demon baby it summons. It's the... Read More
Get Back to the Future in This Red-Band Trailer for 'The Hot Tub Time Machine 2'
Fire up the hot tub, because we’ve got the official red-band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2!
The sequel to one of the surprise comedy hits of 2010 finds three (Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke) of the four (sorry, no John Cusack this time out) original cast members returning for another trip through time and space. Laughs, nudity and outlandish situations are sure to follow.
The lengthy new red-band trailer (which is not safe for work) reveals what’s happened to our leads since their first adventure. When Lou (who has apparently become the “father of the Internet”) is shot by an unknown assailant, the boys have to fire up the time machine again to save their friend. Lots of hilarious mishaps follow.
