Death Note has been getting less than favorable reviews, but the buzz is that Willem Dafoe plays a good Ryuk. I still have yet to strap in and watch it, but I've loved the casting since it was announced, so it doesn't surprise me that Dafoe's performance as the Shinigami is anything less than perfect.
Hear Dafoe and the rest of the cast and crew talk about the character in the featurette below:
There's a collection of extremely fun art inspired by the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King's It. We only have one week to go before the movie is released in theaters where it will terrify audiences! King loved the movie! In fact, he recently said that he wasn't prepared for how good it would be:
"I had hopes, but I was not prepared for how good it really was. It's something that's different, and at the same time, it's something that audiences are gonna relate to. They're gonna like the characters. To me, it's all about character. If you like the characters... if you care... the scares generally work. I'm sure my fans will enjoy the movie. I think they're gonna really enjoy the movie. And I think some of them will go back two or three times and actually savor the thing. I went back and saw it a second time, and I felt I was seeing things the second time through that I missed the first time."
Force Friday II is set to launch tomorrow, but today we are starting to see a few new Star Wars toys and collectibles that will be made available to the fans! Most of them will feature characters from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Funko has revealed a few new POP! figures for some new BB Droids characters set to make their debut in The Last Jedi!
First off there's BB-8, who we all know and love, but he also will have an evil counterpart in The Last Jedi. The First Order has a BB Droid of their own that they call BB-9E. The resistance will also get another new BB Unit. You can check out imagines of all three of the droids below.
I wonder if we will end up seeing the rolling droids BB-8 and BB-9E fight each other because that would be pretty damn great! It would be a shame if we don't see them locked in battle.
The official runtime for Blade Runner 2049 has been revealed, and it clocks in at 2 hours and 32 minutes. As Variety points out, that's over 30 minutes longer than the original film which was just under two hours. That runtime doesn't include credits by the way, which add an additional 11 minutes to the overall runtime when included.
Ultimately, I'm fine with the film running a little long considering we'll probably not get another film after this. Let's just hope we get all the answers we could ever want from the universe in that two and a half hours! Blade Runner 2049 releases October 6th.
Let me paint you a story. I'm a writer for Geektyrant.com. It's late, but I know I want to get some articles written and help contribute. I find a trailer for a new movie called Ghost House. Cool! I like scary movies! How bad can it be? Well, Since watching the trailer, I have turned on all my lights and have moved to a place where I can run out of my house quickly if needs be, and no, I don't plan on going to sleep anytime soon. Like Ever.
The movie looks terrifying. Maybe because it's late, maybe because the monster in this has a thing for jump scares, maybe it's this new anti-stress medicine I'm on. Maybe it's you. But this thing has given me the hebejebes.
It starts kinda scary with girl running through a street. Fine. Creepy lady comes for her and it's creepy, but not like "I think it's after me" creepy. Then you see girl and guy on a wonderful vacation to Thailand and the guy proposes tot he girl. How sweet. So we won't be getting the usual teenagers do the darndest things in this scary movie. Then some strangers show them to a graveyard, and that's when the hebejebes start creeping in. Anyway. The graveyard is weird, the guys are weird, the way the guy says, "a souvenir" is weird. Then she touches it and I just feel unsettled. Ghost shit starts going down. Dudes run away. Why? Did they know it's evil? Why did they bring them there then? Are these guys just douches who are like, "Hey bro, want to curse some tourists, and maybe get ourselves killed as well?" There are so many questions! The lady honestly reminds me of the picture that looks scarier the longer you look at it. It feels like a foreign film but has English speaking actors. Like The Ring, but better.
I don't know. I'm scared. I don't want to see it, but I kinda do. If only to see it hopefully overplayed to the point that it will get the fear that exists out of my head. Like when I saw the Devil Face Guy in Insidious at first I was like, NOPE, but then I got a better look at him and was chill with it. It's all about perspective. Check out the trailer below. Am I going crazy?
Director James Gunn recently shared a blooper outtake from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and it features Michael Rooker falling asleep and snoring during a very important scene in the movie. I can't really talk about it without revealing a major spoiler, so stop reading now if you haven't seen this movie yet!
In the scene, Chris Pratt is trying to deliver a heart felt eulogy to Yondu who died in the process of saving him. There's no doubt the scene had some of you in tears. Well, right in the middle of shooting the eulogy scene Michael Rooker, who is laying down on a table, starts snoring.
What's interesting is everyone is keeping their cool. No one is busting up laughing at the situation. They are all in just such a mourning and sad mode that they don't want to break the heavy mood in the scene that they are trying to shoot.
When talking about the scene, James Gun says:
"This was going on constantly while we were trying to shoot this scene, and it is completely real."
"Everyone was crying. It was more uncomfortable than funny in the moment (now it's funny)."
"If he was snoring (he did this many times) I would wake him up. Normally I'd do it loudly making fun of him but Chris was in a very personal and sad and serious space."
Watching the video, it's hard not to laugh. I guess it's a scene that Rooker didn't really need to be awake for anyway. Check it out!
After years of waiting, the first trailer for the sequel of Super Meat Boy is here! From what we can tell, it looks like Super Meat Boy Forever is adding a bit more platforming to the game but keeping the rigid difficulty the original game prided itself on so much. It also looks like they've added a few more fighting mechanics? It's been so long since I've played Super Meat Boy I can't remember if you could attack people or not. Check out the trailer below and let us know if you're gonna buy this game when it launches on LITERALLY EVERY PLATFORM (including mobile) in 2018.
One of the main reasons that I'm so excited about Star Wars: The Last Jedi is that Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker plays a major role in it and we are going to see him fully back in action for the first time since Return of the Jedi.
During a recent interview with The Vancouver Sun, the actor talked about his hesitation about stepping back into the role of Luke and he also talks about the characters place in the continuing saga of the story.
When talking about his reluctance to be a part of the project, he said:
“It was scary. I thought, ‘Gee, it was hard to catch lightning in a bottle the first time. I don't know if this is such a wise idea.’”
I can see where he's coming from and how strange it would be to step into a character like this again after 30 years. I'm happy that he did decide to come back, though! He's looking pretty badass in the role!
Hamill went on to talk about coming up with a backstory for himself, which is something he's talked about before. He also explains that the story isn't about Luke anymore.
"[I]t's not about us anymore. In this new one, I was saying to Rian Johnson: I need to know my backstory. It was kind of unclear. You read where he is now and what he's doing now and sort of have to fill in the blanks for yourself. So I did do a backstory myself. It's not about Luke anymore, so it's not really important. But I had to make sense of it for myself."
When talking about Luke and his changes, he went on to say:
"Luke changed, I think, more than the other characters in the original trilogy, from callow farm boy to a Jedi in training to finally a Jedi master. What you're talking about is what really fascinated me. Between Return of the Jedi and Force Awakens, there's just decades of history that's unknown."
We have definitely seen a change in Luke. There were choices he made that affected him and some of these choices drove him to go into hiding. One of those choices was taking Ben Solo under his wing, thinking that he was the chosen one. It was previously explained:
"[Luke] made a huge mistake in thinking that his nephew was the chosen one, so he invested everything he had in Kylo, much like Obi-Wan did with my character. And he is betrayed, with tragic consequences. Luke feels responsible for that. That’s the primary obstacle he has to rejoining the world and his place in the Jedi hierarchy, you know? It’s that guilt, that feeling that it’s his fault, that he didn’t detect the darkness in him until it was too late."
I'm just super excited about seeing how Luke Skywalker's story arc plays out throughout the course of the saga. I hope to hell that he doesn't die like Han Solo did in The Force Awakens! Luke needs to live through this madness!
Some more new details have surfaced for George Miller's canceled DC film project Justice League Mortal. The movie was supposed to be made back in 2009 and it would have been a very different take on the DC superhero team than what we are seeing now.
During a recent interview with Jay Baruchel on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. He was cast in the role of the villain, Maxwell Lord. During the podcast, he talked about his time on Justice League Mortaland shared a couple cool sounding scenes involving Wonder Woman (Megan Gale). One of those scenes involves her big intro in the film and the other featured a brutal battle between her and Superman!
When talking about her introduction, he explained:
"The first time you see Wonder Woman - the opening scene on Themyscira. It’s just her on top of a steed and she about half a kilometer away from a minotaur. The minotaur’s got a battle-axe, and she just rushes him. All the Amazons are there cheering her on, and she beheads him. She gets off her steed and holds up the minotaur thing and doesn’t say a god-damn thing. It’s like, that’s the Wonder Woman I want to see. It would have been special."
That sounds like it would have a lot of fun to see! But, so would this fight scene between Wonder Woman and Superman (D.J. Cotrona)! He talks about how that sequence plays out, saying:
"There’s a scene where Maxwell Lord brainwashes Clark and all of a sudden this guy’s got Superman as a weapon.
"But in order for me to do this - to get in to a Kryptonian brain - I start bleeding out of every fucking orifice because it takes that much to get into the head of a Kryptonian. And then I turn him into Red-Eye Superman, and there’s this big ass fight between him and Wonder Woman where he breaks her wrists.
He went on to reveal the fate of his character in the movie saying:
"I die halfway through the movie and my consciousness is uploaded into this mainframe, an evil computer."
Every time I learn something new about this movie, I get a little bummed out that it never happened. It sounds like it would have been a lot of fun! Hopefully one day we see George Miller end up directing some kind of film DC film. At one point, he was rumored to be up for the directing gig of Man of Steel 2. I don't think that's in the cards anymore, though.
The movie would have also starred Armie Hammer as Batman, Adam Brody as Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, and Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter.
