Crude summaries of Star Wars are always great but here’s an especially silly one from Movie Blast. Instead of just simplifying the story (which it does), it also pokes fun of the movie and in turn, skewers all of us at the same time. Rey becomes Ray Romano, JJ Abrams is Jar Jar Abrams, Uber is mentioned, and so is…
We got a brand new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer out of nowhere this morning. Shock of shocks, it’s actually made up almost entirely new footage! It’s got Batman throwing down! Superman in the tub! Wonder Woman finally speaking a line! But there’s much, much more—so we’ve examined every single shot to see…
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Space Jam, unquestionably the greatest cartoon/live-action hybrid movie about basketball ever made. To celebrate, we’ve decided to share this fan theory with you, which makes Space Jam an even cooler movie.
If you think it’s tough being the scarred, wise-cracking Deadpool in the world of superheroes and villains, you haven’t heard what writers Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and the film’s other creators had to go through to make his movie a reality.
If you think you know Quentin Tarantino movies, you probably do. You know all about the shots he loves and the connected universe of his movies and the Red Apple cigarettes and the relationships each character has throughout his movies and his obsession with feet. And yet, QT still has some director trademarks that…
Ross Putman is a film producer with a few credits under his belt, and now he’s started a Twitter feed where he just tweets the initial descriptions of female main characters in the movie scripts he’s reading. It’s endlessly fascinating, and kind of garbage.
Romance abounds in fiction—and science fiction and fantasy are full of epic romances, too. But sometimes a romance feels less like something that’s true to the characters and more like a plot device the writers threw in at the last moment. Here are eight kinds of romance that we don’t ever need to see again.
When The Purge came out in 2013, I dismissed it as a ham-fisted parable of income inequality. The story of a future America where crime is legal for one night, and the rich use this fact to kill the poor for sport, it seemed almost too bludgeony. But The Purge: Anarchy was totally brilliant, and the third movie looks…
These days, creators struggle to keep the details of their upcoming movies and TV shows from leaking on the internet, so they can preserve their big surprises. And this leads to some pretty feeble attempts at misdirection, with cast and crew vehemently denying what everybody already knows. Sometimes, it works.…
This is the best possible choice. Bryan Fuller—who worked on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager back in the day, before going on to create Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and Hannibal—will be the showrunner of the new Star Trek TV show.
Deadpool wasn’t always a comics (and movie, and video game) superstar. The Merc with a Mouth started out much smaller, as a supporting character in one of the many X-Men comic books. We talked to the people who created and shaped him, to find out how Deadpool conquered the universe.
Yesterday brought us a slew of TV ads for movies. And most of them had at least some thrilling new footage, that gave us our first look at some major scenes. Here’s what we learned about Civil War, Deadpool, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and X-Men: Apocalypse!
Unlike almost every other movie commercial released yesterday, Independence Day: Resurgence actually packed its with some new footage. And an explanation of the way the aliens are going to get back at us. It is, of course, completely absurd.
Yesterday Londoners got a fright when they saw a double-decker bus explode on a bridge over the Thames River. Some people immediately thought it was a terrorist attack. Thankfully it was just a scene for a new movie starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.
Just like its predecessor, 10 Cloverfield Lane arrived out of nowhere and made us put together tiny clues. But with the footage that aired during the Super Bowl, we think we’ve finally got a handle on it.
The X-Men: Apocalypse Super Bowl spot really focuses on the “apocalypse” part of the title. Both the character and the general levels of destruction the X-Men are totally failing to prevent.
The latest Civil War trailer has very little new footage in, but we what do have? A great Iron Man and Winter Soldier run in and the first look of Ant-Man’s new look in the movie.
Chris Huebs came up with the brilliant idea to re-edit popular movies to end right after a character says the title of the movie. So when the audience is welcomed to Jurassic Park, boom the credits roll. When you meet the fellowship of the ring, bam it ends. It’s a hilarious gag because the title dropping in the…
I don’t know if any of you guys have heard about it, but there’s a Deadpool movie coming to theaters. Just so you know. They’ve been pretty restrained in promoting it.
For the second time in a single week, there’s news of a MacGyver project. Different MacGyver projects. One a TV show and now a movie. And we’re kind of dumbfounded.
