Fury and Suicide Squad director David Ayer is working with Shia LaBeouf again in his latest film project The Tax Collector and he's released our first look at the actor in his role. As you can see, LaBeouf is looking as crazy as ever in this first image from the crime thriller.
There are no details on the story to share yet, but it will be set in Los Angeles and LaBeouf will be joined by Bobby Soto (For the People), Lana Parrilla (Once Upon a Time), George Lopez (Lopez) and Brendan Schaub (The Fighter & the Kid).
Ayer most recently worked on Netflix fantasy crime-thriller Bright and is also set to write and direct the sequel, based on an original script. I personally like a lot of Ayer's film work and LaBeouf may be a little nuts, but he's a talented actor, so The Tax Collector is a film that I'm very much looking forward to seeing.
It's been a few years since Neil Gaiman has played with the Doctor Who universe, but with Jodie Whittaker on board to play the Thirteenth Doctor, he is ready to jump back in and write a story for her! While talking to Digital Spy, he said:
"If you examine my DNA and you go in deep enough, with a good enough microscope, you're gonna see a TARDIS, with a little light blinking on the top! So the idea of writing for Jodie, or for her successor, whoever she / he / they happen to be, is... yeah, it's Doctor Who! You can't say no."
Gaiman has written two Doctor Who episodes so far. Both of them were during Matt Smith's run as the Eleventh Doctor while Steven Moffat was the showrunner. Those episodes were "The Doctor’s Wife" in 2011 and "Nightmare in Silver" in 2013. He also wrote the short story "Nothing O'Clock" for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
Gaiman went on to say that he did pitch a story of Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor to Moffat, but he wasn't able to do it due to his busy schedule. He explains that he was frustrated that he didn't get to do it.
"I was so frustrated over the last four years because I didn't get to write for Peter Capaldi. I even had a planned episode and did not get to do it, because I've been making Good Omens and that's been my life."
Hopefully Gaiman gets the opportunity to write an episode for Jodie Whitaker while she is The Doctor. Moffat isn't a part of this upcoming season of the series. He stepped down and was replaced by Chris Chibnall, the creator of Broadchurch and former writer on the Doctor Who spinoff series Torchwood.
I'm sure that he'd have no problem with bringing Gaiman on to write an episode! Doctor Who Season 11 premieres this fall.
If you're into World War II war movies, I've got a trailer here for you to check out for a Russian Tank action film called T-34. The film is based on a true story and set in 1944 and the story follows a courageous group of Russian soldiers who "managed to escape from German captivity in a half-destroyed legendary T-34 tank." The synopsis goes on to say that "those were the times of unforgettable bravery, fierce fighting, unbreakable love, and legendary miracles."
The movie looks pretty good and it was produced by billionaire film financier Len Blavatnik, who was also an executive producer on Hacksaw Ridge, Silence and I, Tonya. The film was made on a $10 million budget and was directed by Alexey Sidorov (22 Minutes).
There's no word on when the film will be released outside of Russia. But it'll be released in Russia on December 27, 2018.
If you're looking to see some more wildly inappropriate puppet behavior, you've come to the right place. A new red-band trailer has been released for director Brian Henson's The Happytime Murders and the more I see of the film, the more crazy and ridiculous it looks. It's definitely going to be unlike any other muppet-type movie that we've ever seen and you're not going to want to take your kids to see it! The movie is dark, vulgar, and I'm curious to see how well it does at the box office.
I've seen a lot of mixed reactions to the trailers for this film so far. Some people think it looks hilarious, while others don't like the whole vulgar muppet angle. I'm really personally curious to see how it turns out. It could be a lot of fun, but it could also be incredibly stupid. We'll just have to wait and see.
The human characters in the story are played by Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks, who you'll see as a stripper in the trailer. Here's the synopsis:
No Sesame. All Street. The Happytime Murders is a filthy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show.
The Happytime Murders hits theaters on August 17, 2018. Are you excited about this movie?
Artist Shane Sandulak has created four wicked cool posters that pay tribute to the classic series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Each poster masters one of the four elements of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air. The posters also feature several characters from both the original Avatar series and the followup series, The Legend of Korra. The artist had this to say about these posters:
Some fan art for one of my favourite shows/series of all time, Avatar the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Wanted to do a poster for each element with the characters commonly associated with each nation, rather than just benders (CABBAGE VENDOR!)
Check out the poster art below and tell us what you think! I wish I could own prints of these!
I recently watched Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One again and I still enjoy the hell out of it. This might just be one of those films that I never get tired of watching no matter how many time I see it. Every time I've watched the film I've discovered something new. The movie is just packed full of fun Easter eggs.
Thanks to CineFix, we have a new video to share with you that's worth checking out. It probably offers the most extensive break down of Easter eggs and references in the film yet. There's 138 of them listed in this video and it managed to point out several things that I didn't catch before.
Watch the video and let us know if there was anything pointed out that you didn't catch before!
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly's fall movie premiere, we have a lot of new photos to share with you from several high-profile upcoming films.
The new stills come from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Aquaman, Creed II, Homes and Watson, The Predator, Bumblebee, The Nun, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Halloween, First Man, The Girl in the Spider's Web, The Grinch, and Peppermint.
These are all films that I'm excited about seeing. We've certainly got a great line-up of movies coming in the fall!
Those are the most interesting images, but you can see a lot more of them on EW.
In case any of you were wondering if Thor's old roommate Darryl survived the destructive Snap of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, I've got some great news for you! He lived! Unfortunately, a lot of his co-workers weren't so fortunate so he's been working a lot on the weekends.
Darryl (Daley Pearson) posted a video on Twitter wishing Thor (Chris Hemsworth) a happy birthday and also gives a little update on his life and asks for a little help financially because he's found himself in a little debt.
The video is amusing, but it also offers a little insight into the depressing ways of how "The Snap" may have affected the regular average Joe in the world.
Ever since Batman: The Animated Series, a lot of fans have liked the idea of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy being in a relationship. They've been a popular pair up and it's already been established that they were together, but now it seems DC Comics just casually dropped the news that the two characters are married!
The big reveal came in Injustice 2 #70. While Orca and Killer Croc are getting ready to make their own vows to each other, Poison Ivy nonchalantly reveals that she and Harley Quinn were married in Las Vegas by an Elvis impersonator, which makes complete sense. You can check out how the scene plays out below:
I know that the marriage takes place in a parallel universe, but it's something that could eventually happen in the mainstream universe, where they have been involved with each other in a relationship since 2015.
What do you think about Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy tying the knot in Vegas? Would you like to see that aspect of their relationship explored more?
Neill Blomkamp is currently in the process of developing his next film project, RoboCop Returns, which is going to be a direct sequel to the original 1987 Paul Verhoeven-directed film.
This movie is based on a script that was written years ago by RoboCop's original screenwriters Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner. That movie never happened due to some issues. Justin Rhodes, who co-wrote the upcoming Terminator film for James Cameron and Tim Miller, will rewrite a script that Neumeier and Miner wrote years ago which was originally a planned sequel to Verhoeven’s hit.
Now Neill Blomkamp is teasing the return of Peter Weller, who played RoboCop in the original film! When a fan asked the question of who should play RoboCop in Blomkamp's sequel, the director himself responded with, "Peter Weller." Here's the Twitter exchange:
It would be amazing to see Peter Weller return to the role! That's something that I wasn't expecting, but Blomkamp seems to make it clear here that that is his plan and I couldn't be more excited! It'll be interesting to see if he is actually able to bring Weller back to the franchise.
What do you all think about the possibility of seeing Weller reprise his role in RoboCop Returns?
