Jamie Lee Curtis is pretty psyched for the new Halloween film not just because she's in it, but because she thinks it's legitimately terrifying. The star of the film said that much will be evident from the trailer which she described as "full-tilt boogeyman," to Yahoo:
“I’ve seen a trailer and I’ve seen some footage, and it’s terrifying. They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.”
Of course, Curtis quickly followed it up by saying she probably won't see the film, as horror movies, surprisingly, aren't her thing:
“For people who like that sort of thing, I think it’s going to be really fun for them to experience. For me, that just doesn’t hold any interest to me. Because I’m frightened enough about all [today’s political climate]. So the idea of now paying money and sitting in a dark theater with a bunch of people and watching something really scary doesn’t really do much for me. But there are a lot of people who love it, and they’re gonna love this movie.”
Halloween opens on October 19. Do you believe the film will be as scary as Curtis alleges the trailer to be?
The final Deadpool 2 trailer has been released, and out of all the mutants who made an appearance, the team's newest member Peter is the fans new favorite of the team. It appears as though Ryan Reynolds and crew expected this, as they've already created an official account for the character, and it's comedy gold:
Peter's Twitter is rife with stuff that some lame middle-aged dude would post on the internet, which actually now that I'm thinking of it, might be low-key offensive to any lame middle-aged dude reading this post. There's also a sick burn delivered to star actor Ryan Reynolds, although Peter might be clueless as to how biting his tweet actually was:
Thank you, Ryan. During our honeymoon, Susan and I savored your work in The Notebook. Good luck on your incredible journey. https://t.co/6gx7p0Sj6o
Most celebrities have gift bags for other celebrities when they appear on their talk show, and typically, it's just a swag bag full of show merch. Allison Janney said this was not the case on The Soup and ratted out Joel McHale for giving her two giant hunting knives for her appearance on the series. As far as why McHale did this, he isn't much help in giving an actual reason, but its so funny to watch him explain it we 'll give him a pass anyway:
Sexual assault scandals in Hollywood continue to roll strong in 2018, and now Brendan Fraser is added to the list of actors who allege misconduct by a superior. The actor detailed what went down in the upcoming March issue of GQ (via Uproxx) and alleged he was sexually assaulted by the former president of the foreign press association Philip Berk. Here is what Fraser claims went down:
“His left hand reaches around, grabs my ass cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around.”
Berk admitted to pinching Brendan Fraser's butt in a memoir he wrote since the encounter, but Fraser's telling of the story varies significantly. Fraser said the experience devastated him and caused a lot of depression and conflict within him that he currently sees in the actresses coming forward with allegations. Berk denied Fraser's telling of the story, and while he did admit to writing an apology letter to Fraser following the encounter, he claims he admitted to no wrongdoing.
Fraser's full interview will be featured in this coming month's GQ.
The first trailer for Idris Elba's directorial debut Yardie has arrived, and it's loaded with action. The film was at both Sundance and Berlin Film Festival this year, and is scheduled for a theatrical release later this year. No word on whether or not it'll come to America though, as current distribution only talks about the UK. Check out the synopsis for the film and continue reading:
Set in '70s Kingston and '80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood, of his older brother Jerry Dread (Everaldo Creary). D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd). Fox dispatches him to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he's not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow "the righteous path", he encounters the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier, and embarks on a bloody, explosive quest for retribution - a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham).
Early reviews of this film that I've seen were not positive, which is disappointing because the trailer looks solid, but maybe a mass audience will have a different perspective. You can read our review for it here, Bryan actually loved it. He said:
"Sincerity, Passion, and Heartbreak are all very present in this amazing film. I absolutely love this film. Although Idris Elba, himself, doesn't appear in it, you can feel his presence throughout. Each of the actors have that calm, cool, stoic demeanor he is known for. It's remarkable. It had great cinematography and sublime acting. I especially thought the story was done in such a creative and interesting way."
Check out the trailer below, and the poster for the film and let us know what you think:
The world of Westworld can be confusing as there's really no telling who's human and who's a robot. So, what would happen if the show was actually real life? Door Monster has an idea, and it's actually one I could see playing out in real life. I did always question just how much those fake bullets hurt because it appeared to sting quite a bit near the end of Season 1! Check out the skit below, where four humans (or robots) try to figure out who is who.
Jon Favreau's live-action Lion King will only use four songs from the original film. Collider revealed that the new film, set for release in 2019, will only utilize the songs "Hakuna Matata," "I Just Can't Wait To Be King," "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," and "Circle of Life." Fair point, there isn't much else worth lifting from the soundtrack beyond that, but there is one glaring omission:
That's super disappointing as watching "Be Prepared," in live-action would've been absolutely insane to watch! Then again, if one song had to be dropped, I'm cool with that being the one. Would I much rather live in a world where all the songs are used? Absolutely. Are you disappointed "Be Prepared," was left out of the live-action version? Are you excited for the live-action version?
Black Panther is on track for a $235 million opening weekend, although we won't know for sure until the conclusion of President's Day. Variety said as of Sunday evening Disney had projections for the film at $217 million, but then revised that number early this morning by another $18 million due to children being out of school for President's Day.
That's an insane opening weekend for a film, and blows the previous record for a President's Day weekend film (Deadpool $120 million) out of the water.
Basically, a lot of people saw Black Panther this weekend, and this is looking like it could be one of Marvel's highest grossing films of all time. Is it deserving of that title?
Before we get too excited about the live stage show for Jurassic World, let's not forget this isn't the first stage show to attempt to blow our minds with something of this nature. I remember begging my parents to take me to this back before the Pokemon movie was released because my sister and I were Pokemon crazy and were always blowing cash on Pokemon stuff. Looking at this commercial now, I'm glad they spared me this experience. Let's just hope this Jurassic World show is going to be better than this:
In case you needed to know whether or not technology is there for flying cars, here you go. In an incredibly horrifying video, the Light sport Ni43RS skyrunner gets absolutely destroyed shortly after takeoff when it collided with a building not that far away. Take a look (via Jalopnik) and continue reading below:
Surprisingly, neither passenger was killed in the incident, but both suffered serious injuries. My question is even if this test went well...what viability does this product have in a consumer's market? You can't really use it anywhere but on flat land, and even then it looks incredibly sketchy! Also, why did absolutely no one react to that crash? No screaming, swearing, rushing to their aid...it's very bizarre.
Side note, what year do you think flying cars become a thing? Do you think they ever will?
