I've included a few reactions from a few critics below and they just praise the hell out of the movie. After reading through these, my excitement for the movie is at a boiling point. I just want to watch it already!

Bryan Cranston is Reportedly Wanted For a Major Role in The UNCHARTED Movie with Tom Holland

bryan-cranston-is-reportedly-wanted-for-the-uncharted-movie-with-tom-holland-social.jpg

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is apparently wanted for a big supporting role in the upcoming feature film adaptation of the hit adventurous video game Uncharted

The film project is being developed by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) is set to star in the film as a young Nathan Drake. I think it's a pretty risky move to make an Uncharted prequel film, but I hope that it turns out good!

Cranston's possible involvement comes from Hashtag Show, but they don't have any solid information on who exactly the actor will be playing in the film, other than the fact it will be a major supporting role. 

However, it seems very likely that if cast he would take on the role of Sulivan a.k.a. Sully. The upcoming film was inspired by a sequence from the third Uncharted game which focuses on the young thief Drake, and his first encounter with the professional rogue, Sully. Sully ends up becoming Drake's mentor and father figure.

I think Cranston would be perfect for the role of Sully, so if he ends up getting cast, that would be awesome. Now that I envision him in the role, it's kinda hard to imagine anyone else in it. He's got the look, the attitude, the humor, and the badassery.

There might be some concern about his age as the film should feature a younger version of the character. Holland previously mentioned names such as Chris Pratt and Jake Gyllenhaal as potential actors to take on the role of Sully. However, if they want to cast Cranston, you won't get any complaints from me. 

When previously talking about the film adaptation, Levy described it as an “Indiana Jones-type franchise” for a new generation of moviegoers. You can read what he had to say about the project here.

What do you think about Cranston possibly taking on the role of Sully in Uncharted

There’s a Animated TEEN TITANS GO! Movie Coming to Theaters in 2018

theres-a-animated-teen-titans-go-movie-coming-to-theaters-in-2018-social.jpg

Warner Bros. previously announced that they were developing an untitled animated film that would be released on June 1st, 2018. Well, Deadline is now reporting that the release date of that film has been moved to July 27th, and revealed that the film is a feature-length Teen Titans Go! movie! 

I've gotta be honest, I wasn't expecting to see a Teen Titans Go! movie. There aren't a lot of details on the project, but it’s most likely an extension of the popular animated series that airs on Cartoon Network. The Teen Titans Go! series, which focuses on the core team of characters such as Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy and Starfire, has been on the air since 2013. It's coming up on its 200th episode. 

I don't watch the series regularly, but from what I have seen, it looks like a fun show that the kids enjoy. I'm sure any fan of the series will be happy to hear that it will be getting its own movie and that they'll get to see it in theaters. 

With all of the dark PG-13 DCEU films that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have been releasing, I guess they felt they needed to bring the lighter part of their DC brand to the theaters for the kids. 

Will you be headed to the theater to watch Teen Titans Go!?

First Look at Taylor Kitsch as David Koresh in WACO

first-look-at-taylor-kitsch-as-david-koresh-in-waco1

The first three photos have been released for the upcoming six-part series Waco, and it gives us our first look at Taylor Kitsch (Lone Survivor, John Carter) as cult leader David Koresh. He certainly looks like a great project for him to be a part of and it certainly looks like a solid fit for the role. 

The series will center around the standoff between the FBI, ATF, and Texas state law enforcement and the Branch Davidians cult. The siege lasted 51 days and by the time it was over, 76 people were killed including the cult's leader David Koresh. The whole thing started when the group was suspected of weapons violations. When the ATF attempted to raid the ranch, all hell broke loose. Here's some additional information from the press release:

In February, 1993, the eyes of the world converged on Mount Carmel, a small religious community located just outside Waco, TX. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) had just conducted a massive raid on David Koresh and his followers, known as the Branch Davidians. After what became the longest gun battle in U.S. law enforcement history, four ATF agents and six civilians were dead and dozens more were wounded. A 51-day standoff ensued, and the conflict ended after an FBI assault led to a fire that engulfed Mount Carmel, killing 76 men, women, and children.
What precipitated the ATF raid, and what transpired over the ensuing standoff, remains one of the most misunderstood stories in American history. Waco is based on two biographies, “A Place Called Waco,” by Branch Davidian David Thibodeau, one of the nine survivors of the final fire on April 19, 1993, and “Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator,” written by the FBI’s Head of Crisis Negotiation Unit Gary Noesner.

The series also has an impressive ensemble cast that includes Michael Shannon, John Leguizamo, Andrea Riseborough, Rory Culkin, Melissa Benoist, Paul Sparks, Shea Whigham, Camryn Manheim, and Julia Garner

The series will premiere sometime in 2018. What do you think about Kitsch in the role of Koresh?

Paul Rudd’s Stunt Double in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is an Amputee, Which is Inspiring

I know a good amount of people with various disabilities. Many of them use their disabilities as an excuse not do certain things or blame their lack of success their ailments. It's hard to break down the wall of feeling limited in their abilities and grounded.

Brett Smrz is an inspiration to anyone who might feel this way. You see, at 16-years-old, Smrz lost one of his legs in a trampoline accident, but that didn't stop him from becoming a professional stuntman!

He is one of two stunt doubles for Paul Rudd on Marvel Ant-Man and the Wasp and he is a stunt driver. In the photo below you can see him walking around on the set of the film in Ant-Man's new costume. You can read all about his background here.

This definitely will make people rethink the way we look at stunt doubles and the kind of people who end up becoming a stunt double. Seriously, how many of us never thought of a stunt doubt have only one leg? He doesn't like his handicap keep him from doing what he loves to do. 

I don't know, I just thought this was awesome and I had to share it.  

A Big Unexpected A-List Star is Rumored to Have a Surprise Cameo in THOR: RAGNAROK

a-big-unexpected-a-list-star-is-rumored-to-have-a-surprise-cameo-in-thor-ragnarok-social.jpg

There a pretty big A-list star that is rumored to appear in a cameo role in director Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok. This is just a big rumor for now, but in case it is true, I'm throwing up a spoiler warning!

According to the Weekly Planet podcast, Matt Damon is going to appear in the movie. When I first read that it's was a complete surprise. They even claim to have details on what he'll be doing in the film. 

According to the report, there will be a part in the film set on Asgard where we will see the first Thor film recounted in the form of a stage play and Matt Damon will be playing the role of Loki in that play. 

It's certainly a unique way to use the actor, and it totally seems like kind of fun tongue in cheek cameo that Waititi would throw in a film. But again, this is just a rumor, and nothing has been confirmed. 

The information is said to have come from a source that's seen an early cut of the movie which is set to be released in the UK next month and in the US next month. 

What do you think about the possibility of seeing Damon playing Loki in a play in Thor: Ragnarok?

Wild Trailer For HALLOWEEN PUSSY TRAP KILL! KILL! is Like Russ Meyer Meets SAW

wild-trailer-for-halloween-pussy-trap-kill-kill-is-like-russ-meyer-meets-saw2

I've got a crazy trailer for a new horror thriller called Halloween Pussy Trap Kill! Kill!. I don't know if you're familiar with the filmmaker Russ Meyer, from the 60s and 70s, but it totally seems like this is the kind of movie he would have made in the style of Saw. Meyer is behind such films as Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, Common Law Cabin, Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers!, Vixen, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, and more. They are all very grindhouse-style type movies.

Anyway, if you're familiar with his stuff, then Halloween Pussy Trap Kill! Kill! is a film you'll probably enjoy. Here's the synopsis: 

On Halloween an all girl rock-n-roll band called “Kill Pussy Kill” ventures out to play their biggest show to date. However, before hitting the road they manage to unwittingly upset a man. Unfortunately, this man turns out to be an evil genius dead set on revenge.
The evil genius manages to lure the girls into his Hell House, and when they wake up from being gassed, they find themselves trapped inside an unescapable room filled with a vicious variety of devices that can kill them as well as a variety of weapons that can be used on each other.
The rules are simple: advance through all three rooms and you are allowed to go free. The catch is, in order to make it to the next room, someone must die!
With a ticking clock, and the mastermind watching, the question becomes… are you willing to kill to stay alive?

The movie was directed by Jared Cohn and stars Sara Malakul Lane, Richard Grieco, Demetrius Stear, Margaret O’Brien and Dave Mustaine, who is the frontman of Megadeth. Cleopatra Entertainment will release the film on October 27th in theaters.

There’s a FREAKS AND GEEKS Documentary Coming to A&E in 2018

The 1999 series Freaks and Geeks was a perfect storm of greatness. It was an amazing coming of age series from Judd Apatow and Paul Feig that helped launch the careers of several high-profile creative talent in Hollywood. Unfortunately, it was canceled way too soon.

If you're a fan of the series, you'll be happy to learn that there is a documentary coming to TV next year that focuses on the short-lived series. In a way, this will give fans the reunion of these actors that they've been waiting for.

The doc was confirmed by Feig when he was asked on Twitter if the documentary was really happening. This was his reply:

Then actor Samm Levine tweeted the following, double confirming the Doc!

It's pretty exciting that this is happening. It will be fun to learn about all the behind-the-scenes stories during the development of this incredible series.

Here is a list of the people involved with the show, many of which will most likely be involved with the doc: James Franco, Samm Levine (Inglourious Basterds), Linda Cardellini (Mad Men), Seth RogenMartin Starr (Silicon Valley) , John Francis Daley (co-writer of Spider-Man: Homecoming), and Jason Segel.

Other actors that were a part of the series include: Ben Foster, Shia LaBeouf, Lizzy Caplan, Tom Wilson (Back to the Future), Ann Dowd, Rashida Jones, Jason Schwartzman, and Ben Stiller.

If you've never watched Freaks and Geeks, you really need to. It's such a wonderful, funny, and honest show. I can't wait to see how this doc turns out.

Trailer For The SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS Stop-Motion Halloween Special THE LEGEND OF BOO-KINI BOTTOM

Nickelodeon has made a SpongeBob SquarePants Halloween special called The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom and they've even released a trailer for it that you can watch below. The best thing about this is that it's all done in stop-motion animation!

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom tells the tale of the Flying Dutchman (Brian Doyle-Murray), who shows up in Bikini Bottom and he is looking to scare everyone. Since SpongeBob thinks that scary things funny, the Flying Dutchman has met his challenge.

Bikini Bottom is decked out for Halloween and features Sandy’s treedome as a mad scientist’s lab, including a giant remotely operated Acorn Monster; Mr. Krabs’ restaurant as “The Horrors of the Chum Bucket,” displaying scenes of Plankton torturing food; and Plankton’s restaurant as “The Horrors of the Krusty Krab,” telling the story of Mr. Krabs turning customers into Krabby Patties and more.

The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom is being produced at Screen Novelties, a Los Angeles-based stop-motion animation production company, where miniature puppets and sets bring Bikini Bottom to life in three dimensions. The production features 27 unique sets, across five stages, where 15 boxes of breakfast cereal were used to create texture on Bikini Bottom's coral reefs; eight pounds of glitter were used to decorate SpongeBob’s Halloween pineapple house; hundreds of popsicle sticks created the planks of the rollercoaster track that Patrick and SpongeBob ride; and “black lights” were used to create a fluorescent glow across the puppets and sets.
Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are the supervising producers on SpongeBob SquarePants. The special was written by Mr. Lawrence, with Brian Morante serving as the storyboard director. The special is being directed by Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh, and produced by Chris Finnegan of Screen Novelties.
