This Failed Attempt To Sneak Into BLACK PANTHER Is Straight Out Of A Cartoon

It comes as no surprise that everyone is going out of their way to see Marvel's Black Panther. Right now the movie is destroying it at the box office and is breaking records along the way.

But two fans put in a little extra effort to see Black Panther at a discounted rate. Twitter user @stevelikescups posted this video online showing a suspiciously tall theater patron standing in line to buy tickets. See the video below:

It's pretty obvious that this is just one person sitting on the shoulders of another while wearing the longest trench coat known to man.  As you might imagine, their attempt at getting two in to the movie for the price of one didn't go over too well. But if nothing at all, it made for a good laugh as others standing in line gathered to take pictures and videos of the unusually tall mystery man.

Deleted Scenes From THOR: RAGNAROK Features The Grandmaster Explaining Universal Gestures and Alien Bats

maxresdefault.jpg

A couple of new deleted scenes from Thor: Ragnarok have popped up online for your viewing enjoyment. Both of them feature the lovable Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster.

The first video shows Grandmaster instructing Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to find Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Grandmaster waves his hand to signify that Loki and Valkyrie need to leave, but neither of them seems to initially understand that. The rest of the scene plays out like a game of charades. Goldblum mimes different "universal symbols" to Topaz (Rachel House).

The second clip features the ruler of Sakaar getting annoyed by some type of alien bats that are swarming around as he makes The God of Thunder's acquaintance.

Writers of the film say the Grandmaster role was almost completely different when it was unclear if Goldblum would take the part.

"There are so many different ways you can go with that character. He could be a power-hungry monster. Or he's cool and vindictive. And they're like, 'We're going to Jeff Goldblum.' And I'm like, 'Got it.' And then at one point they came back and said it's not going to work out. I’m like, 'No! Who's going to do all this now?'"

Golblum eventually signed on for the role, and brought so much color and insanity to Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok will be released on Digital HD on February 20, while the Blu-ray arriving in stores on March 6.

Tessa Thompson Is “Hopeful” Marvel Will Make an All-Female Movie

Thor: Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson says she's "hopeful" that Marvel might spotlight women with an all-female movie in Marvel Studios' Phase 4. While speaking on the red carpet of her latest movie Annihilation, she told IGN that there's definitely "an interest" in an all-female movie.

"I'm not Marvel so I can't make it happen, but I can tell you that Marvel is hugely collaborative, I think our even our Thor [Ragnarok] movie was basically the product of conversations they'd had with Chris [Hemsworth] and with Mark [Ruffalo] about what they wanted to do next. I think [Marvel boss] Kevin Feige is really excited by the idea, and if you look at what's happened already in Phase 4 with me and [Thompson's character] Valkyrie and our story, and then in Black Panther the women rule supreme.
"There's an interest - they're doing Captain Marvel, they're doing a Black Widow - there's an interest in having women at the forefront of this phase. I feel like it's hopeful, who knows."

Thompson played the kick-ass new character Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok and is currently starring in Annihilation, the sci-fi thriller from director Alex Garland (Ex Machina). She the one that initially brought the idea to Kevin Feige, and he said that it could happen. Karen Gillan also said that now is the right time for it. If it does happen, it would make sense for it to be a Lady Liberator film. 

Would you like to see Marvel move forward with this all-female movie?

The Whole Team Is Together In The New Poster For SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Capture.JPG

Last week we got to see the much anticipated trailer for the Han Solo spin-off movie Solo: A Star Wars Story and even 4 character posters depicting each of the film's key personalities. Now thanks to Reddit we're getting a look at another poster of the similar design, only this one features several of the characters together. Some of the characters are the same from their individual posters, but this new poster gives us a look at additional new shots of Lando, L3-37 and Tobias Beckett.

Trailer For The Psychological Mystery Thriller SPINNING MAN with Pierce Brosnan and Guy Pearce

Screen Shot 2018-02-07 at 7.32.11 PM.png

We're getting a look at an upcoming psychological mystery film starring Guy Pearce, Pierce Brosnan and Minnie Driver called Spinning Man. You can see the new trailer and poster for the twisty thriller below.

The movie is based on the novel of the same name by George Harrar, and follows professor Evan Birch (Pearce) who works at a distinguished college where he teaches philosophy. When a female student named Hannah goes missing, Evan’s previous off-campus errands make his wife (Driver) question his alibi. Even a detective (Brosnan) grows very suspicious when crucial evidence makes the professor the prime suspect in the girl's disappearance. 

The film is directed by Swedish director Simon Kaijser and written by Matthew Aldrich (Coco). Spinning Man is set to hit select theaters and On Demand on April 6, 2018.

Some Shots in the SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Trailer Reference Other Harrison Ford Movies

Screen+Shot+2018-02-05+at+3.07.08+PM.png

We've all completely dissected the Solo: A Star Wars Story trailers by now, but thanks to very observant internet users we're learning about several connections the movie has to previous films starring Harrison Ford. We've also shown you more than 80 screen shots from the movie, but two of them seem to stand out as very familiar.

The first reference comes from redditor A_Navigator. This one isn't framed up exactly the same way, but there is no denying it feels very familiar.  In the sequence when Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) is facing off against a strange masked bounty hunter-looking character armed with some kind of "space spear," you see him unsnap his holster in preparation for battle.  This is very reminiscent of another face-off involving one Dr. Indiana Jones and a swordsman in Raiders of the Lost Ark. We don't know how exactly Solo's showdown will play out yet, but it wouldn't be too surprising if it is similar to Indiana Jones' outcome. Someone even made a gif depicting just how similar the shot is (no pun intended).

via GIPHY

The second shot is much more precise and also happens to connect Star Wars creator George Lucas and Harrison Ford to the Solo film.  During a speeder chase sequence in the Solo trailer, a shot is taken from the front looking in at Solo behind the wheel with Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) sitting by his side. It seems pretty straight forward, but this shot is a near carbon copy of a shot of pre-Star Wars Harrison Ford behind the wheel in a scene from a little movie written and directed by George Lucas, American Graffiti. Fun fact, Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard also starred in American Graffiti.

Screen Shot 2018-02-06 at 11.43.06 PM.png

These are some pretty fun easter eggs and I'm sure there are a lot more that were not included in the trailer. I'm not sure if Howard is adding these shots to make this Solo movie feel more familiar or are they mere homages to other Harrison Ford movies? Who knows, maybe we'll find out in May when Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25.

It Was Brilliantly Marketed But THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX Is Not A Brilliant Film – One Minute Movie Review

cloverfield-3-trailer-is-here-full-movie-on-netflix-after-super-bowl.jpg

Each movie in the Cloverfield franchise has not only proven to be very surprising, they have each blown audiences away. And we were all surprised during the Super Bowl when Netflix not only showed us their first trailer for The Cloverfield Paradox but also revealed that the movie would be available to stream immediately following the game. So, does this third installment in the Scifi franchise live up to the standards of the previous 2 films?
