We already know that there is a three-part story arc for The Hulk that will play out over the course of three films. Those films are Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers 4. I won't get into what the relationship is like between Hulk and Banner in Infinity War right now because I know many of you still haven't seen the movie yet.
One thing is for sure though, each of these characters have their own personalities and we do learn more about the relationship between them. During a recent interview with James Cordon, Ruffalo offered a little tease of what might happen with these characters. He says that they are headed for a showdown:
"I'm not allowed to say anything. They're having a real problem. Let me just say this to you; the only person or thing in the universe that Hulk is afraid of is Banner. And the only one who Banner probably dislikes more than anything else is Hulk. And they're headed for a showdown."
Ruffalo previously talked about where the story for Hulk is going and one of the main things it revolves around is the fact that Hulk is starting to speak:
"Hulk speaking is the start to separating of these two individuals, these identities in this split-identity person, and where that's going to end up going. So it was really interesting to me. He's like a baby! He's like a five year old or six year old. So he has the same syntax, he has the same world view, and so it was fun."
I'm curious to see how Avengers 4 will continue this arc and where The Hulk and Bruce Banner will ultimately end up. You'll get more of a hint of where things are headed after you watch Avengers: Infinity War, which is now in theaters!
What are you hoping to see happen in Hulk's story arc?
A fun little video clip has surfaced featuring Deadpool and Hugh Jackman hanging out in bed together. In the clip, Jackman is wishing someone a happy birthday and as he does this Deadpool is singing the classic song "Tomorrow" from the Broadway musical Annie. As you'd imagine, it's kind of annoying Jackman.
This was shot during a little promotional video that they shot for CinemaCon that screened during the Fox presentation. It was actually pretty damn hilarious as they used it as a way to crack jokes on the whole Disney buying Fox thing. You can actually see the Mickey Mouse ears in the background of this video. And what you don't see here is that there's a guy dressed up as Pluto the Dog who gets up from the other side of the bed after what looked to be one hell of a wild night.
Anyway, enjoy the video, which also features a few other promo spots that you may or may not have seen.
A theater in Australia had to give some free tickets out after a screening of Peter Rabbit was preceded by a trailer for A24's latest horror film Hereditary. For those not familiar with the latter film, this is the upcoming possession horror where a woman's deceased mother begins to possess her grandchildren and haunt their family. If you watch the trailer, you'll notice things kind of start off like a preview for another children's film, but then derail very quickly:
Theater goers reported parents were seen sprinting out of the theater with their children in tow and screaming at the projectionist to turn the trailer off. All patrons received a complimentary ticket for the potentially scarring event, which should smooth things over.
Honestly I'm jealous I wasn't there to witness something like that. The craziest thing I ever had happen was I went to a 3D film that wasn't switched to 3D until 15 minutes into the film. We didn't get a refund. Anyone else have an experience similar to this happen to them?
Deadline offered us some bummer news yesterday. HBO has canceled their series Here and Now after just it's first season. The show was a family drama, sprinkled with dark humor, about a couple, their three adopted adult children, and their biological teen-aged daughter. It dealt with mental illness, racial tension, diversity, religion, familial relations, and so much more.
It was a show that my husband, Billy, and I were super into! We got other people to watch it too, and every episode was a major topic of conversation. The viewer numbers just weren't high enough to sustain it. But I kind of blame marketing, as we had never heard anything about the show until I just happened to be browsing through HBO, setting up Barry to record, I believe (another great show on right now, that they better not cancel!), and I stumbled upon Here and Now and we gave it a shot.
The cast was solid, including Tim Robbins,Holly Hunter, and honestly a completely compelling set of lesser-known actors. The story was great. It's just such a bummer it had to end. And on a cliffhanger! Maybe if we write to HBO, we could make a difference? Or hope it gets picked up by another network? What do you guys think? Who else is bummed, and ready to make a fuss?
I’ve really been enjoying Darth Blender’s work with these comic book movies. He goes through and recreates the trailer using footage from old animated shows. Today’s patient is Venom with all of the clips coming from one of the great cartoons of the 1990's Spider-Man. Watching this redone trailer gave me a huge case of nostalgia for the cartoon I grew up on. I will admit that this is not my favorite of Darth Blender’s work, but it is still enjoyable. Do you enjoy these little trips down memory lane combined with new movie trailers?
Luke is loving the limelight and showing off his skills for Harlem in a new clip for Luke Cage Season 2. The clip is mostly filler with no important story to give away the show's plot, but it does show that Luke has gotten a bit of swagger since we last saw him. Seriously, he's flexing for Harlem after chucking that tire! Check out the clip below and get ready for the new season June 22:
Some new footage from Tim Burton and Nicolas Cage's Superman Lives has hit the web, and it's all thanks to our pals at Dread Central. The following is a 60-second clip of test footage for the Superman suit meant for the film, which is about as far from the traditional Superman suit as one can get. It looks even crazier than when it was described, and I'll be honest, I'm kind of digging it. Had this been a film for an original Tim Burton hero and not Superman, I would've totally been down for this costume! Check out the footage below and let us know if you agree:
Netflix has released a fun little video giving fans a glimpse at the start of production for Stranger Things Season 3. In the video, we see the whole original cast and crew get back together along with new additions to Season 3 such as Jake Busey as Bruce and Cary Elwes as Mayor Kline.
It's kinda cool getting a little peek behind the curtain as the production of the return of this highly anticipated series begins.
Stranger Things Season 3 stars Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Chief Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Joe Keery as Steve Harrington, Dacre Montgomery as Billy, and Sadie Sink as Max.
Executive producer Shawn Levy previously revealed that the third season would take place one year after the second season, so that would set it during the summer of 1985. He went on to talk about the relationships of the teen characters. When the story picks up Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) will be a couple as will Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink). He also said that Steve Harrington will have a bigger role in the story this time around and that Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg's film Back to the Future will be a reference in the upcoming season.
Have you got a bunch of games cluttering up your Steam library from humble bundles or gifts, that you are never going to play? For those who are not familiar, steamgifts.com is a wonderful website where you can potentially turn your extra Steam games into new Steam games!
How does it work? Well quite simply actually. You link your Steam account with their site. This allows for them to scan your library, to see what you have and what you haven’t installed. You and other users list games that you are going to give up (note you have installed the game at any time you can’t post it, it has to be a game you have never used/installed). You put how long you want it to run for, how many copies you have (it seems that a lot of developers may use this as a means to disseminate their games to the public), who can enter the drawing (more on this in a sec) & some stuff dealing with this, if there is any region restriction and how you will be giving the game (wither it's a key directly or gifting it through steam).
First is the drawing open to everyone on the site, only people you invite or only people in specific groups? Now how you can limit people is an interesting little mechanism that also creates motivation for other people to put new drawings up of their own games. See, Steamgifts has a “tier” system, called contributor level; you move up levels based on the current steam value of games you have created drawings for (with the value decreasing for each copy of a game you give away). Contributor level can be used as a limiting factor in drawings, where only users who have exceeded a specific contribution level can put there name into the drawing. Don’t worry there are a huge number of drawings that don’t require any contribution level.
Speaking of putting your name in for the drawing...how does that work? Well here, once again, they have created some interesting devices for this. Every user earns 6 points every 15 minutes, to a maximum of 400. You use points to purchase access to the drawing, at a 1 point to $1 of the current Steam value of the item (at time of the drawing’s creation). So a $30 game will require 30 points to enter the drawing. So it will take a little time to get the points needed to enter the drawings for the “best” games, but pop back in periodically and enter drawings to your heart’s content.
So, what are you waiting for?! Go out there and win you some games!
New photos have surfaced of Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which may be the best look anyone gets at it for awhile. Take a look at some of the pictures (via Dark Horizons) and get the deets below:
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was originally going to be the closing night film showed at Cannes, but that's up in the air now due to allegations that Gilliam does not own the rights to the film. Alfama Films Production explained the situation in a released statement (via Screen Daily):
“Alfama Films Production has been granted permission to obtain a writ against the Cannes Film Festival and will ask the president of the Paris District Court to impose a ban on the screening of the film by Terry Gilliam, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, due to the violation of its rights, rights which have been confirmed in three separate legal rulings,”
A hearing regarding whether or not Gilliam will be allowed to screen the film at Cannes will take place May 7. If the ruling goes against Gilliam, it'll be the latest development in his 18-year-struggle to get his telling of this story to theaters. Let's cross our fingers that everything that's supposed to happen will happen...but really that we get to see this film. In case you missed the trailer, you can watch it here.
The film stars Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) in the role of Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote. As a fan of Gillam's film work, I couldn't be more excited about this!
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale where Toby takes on the mantle of Don Quixote de la Mancha.
The movie also stars Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Good Will Hunting), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion), Joana Ribeiro (Portugal Não Está à Venda, A Uma Hora Incerta), Óscar Jaenada (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Jordi Mollà (Criminal, In the Heart of the Sea), Sergi Lopez (Pan’s Labyrinth) and Rossy de Palma (Julieta, The Flower of my Secret).
