As filming for Daredevil Season 3 gets underway in NYC, some photos are hitting the web that are teasing light details about the upcoming plot. Specifically, it appears that Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. Kingpin, is out of prison and not all that popular with the public. Check out the photo below which shows a crowd of folks protesting against the villain's release:
We know in Season 2 he was incarcerated, so it would appear these protesters could be sitting outside of a parole hearing or something of that nature. Whatever the case, I like the fact that the story could reintroduce Fisk, although I'd like to see more of other villains as well. What are your thoughts on more Fisk?
For the first time since 1992, Americans and Canadians are going to the movies less than they ever have before. While that's not great news for films tailored to those two nations, films with an international appeal should be fine as worldwide movie going is at a record high. While The Verge reports there was a 5.8% drop in moviegoing in the U.S. and Canada, worldwide sales experienced a 3% increase. On an international scale that means films grossed about $40 billion this year total.
As for why Americans and Canadians watched less movies in theaters in 2017, streaming and the Summer selection share the blame. With films like The Mummy and Baywatch polishing out this summer's moviegoing choices, filmgoers were giving a hard pass during the summer months. Another factor was the rise of ticket prices, even though services like Moviepass popped up to try and balance that.
I can certainly say I saw less films this year than I have in years past, can you say the same?
When he was framed for the murder of Clifford DeVoe in the midseason finale of The Flash, Barry Allen was in a rough spot. It looks like that situation doesn't get any better when things return as Barry is faced with the problem of how to convince the world he's not a murderer.
As you'll see in the trailer below, that's easier said than done. Really there are only two ways to beat the rap on this. Either he reveals he's The Flash, or he has his friend's plant evidence in an attempt to prove he's innocent. Neither are ideal scenarios, but he's in a less than ideal situation so what else can he do?
The Flash returns to The CW Tuesday, January 16 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
It was leaked back when the film was in development, and now it's official, Bright is getting a sequel. Because Netflix rarely does any announcement in a normal way, the streaming service made the announcement via fake Orc auditions for the film, which are actually pretty funny.
Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel. The film got a ton of viewers when it was released. The streaming service recently said that it was viewed by 11 million people over three days. Netflix also said that it was the highest viewed original film ever on the service in its first week of release and one of the biggest originals it has ever launched.
Bright was met with mixed reviews. Some people loved it, while others didn't, but there's obviously an audience for it that will watch a sequel.
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. Bright is genre-bending action movie that follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward (Smith) and Jakoby (Edgerton), embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.
The first movie was directed by David Ayes and written by Max Landis and it also starred Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz, and Brad William Henke.
Check it out the video announcement below and let us know what you'd like to see in the sequel.
Insidious is one of the best horror franchises of the modern era, but it isn't always the easiest franchise to follow. While I grasp the general concepts of the film franchise, there's some stuff that may get lost in translation due to the film jumping back and forth between the past. If you're looking for a rather lengthy explanation that breaks down the first three films and the relevance of all its dead and undead characters...this video is the perfect resource.
It's also great if you saw the first film but then peaced out after it and want to see whats happened since, so check it out.
Batman Returns ended up being way darker than Batman films of the past, and while that ultimately became the vision, it was not the original plan. The second film in Tim Burton's franchise was originally supposed to have a marriage proposal, Batman riding a horse, and Penguin hiring Catwoman to steal some antique ravens from Wayne Manor. In short, it sounded like trash. This video breaks down how that vision slowly faded away (largely thanks to Tim Burton) and the director got to make the Batman film he wanted to do from the beginning.
After watching his franchise go on a steady decline over the years, Ridley Scott sounds beside himself. The good news is it doesn't appear as though he's ready to give up on the Alien franchise so we might see him working on another film in the near future. The bad news? He may have some delusions of grandeur in regards to the property:
"There's no reason why Alien should now not be on the same level for fans as Star Trek and Star Wars. I think the next [question] as to where we go is, do we sustain the Alien [franchise] with the evolution of the beast or do we reinvent something else? I think you need to have an evolution on this famous beast, because he's the best monster ever, really."
That quote (via Gamespot) is a bold proclamation by any stretch, and I'm not sure how you put Alien in the same discussion as Star Trek or Star Wars unless you're talking about number of films that have been released. I would LOVE for Alien to reach that type of success, but I'm gonna sit here and flat out say there are plenty of reasons why Alien has not reached that level of success.
Regardless, I like that Scott still has that fire in him to continue and try to make the franchise better because he does have a really good monster...he just needs better stories surrounding it. I honestly thought Prometheus was a step in the right direction, but it appears they've all but abandoned that strategy, so where do you go now? What do you think would drastically improve this franchise?
After four years of silence, Mike Habjan has finally revealed Part IV of his epic battle between The Hulk and Superman and it's amazing. In a project that's spanned around 6 years since its conception, Habjan has painstakingly recreated Christopher Reeves Superman and Lou Ferrigno's Hulk for the throwdown of the century, and it plays out much better than the actual canon fight the two had when both companies teamed up for a crossover event. As you can see from the above picture, the animation is very convincing! Check it out below and let us know who you think would actually win between the two.
The #KyloRenChallenge is here, and we have John Mayer of all people to thank for it. The folk musician took to Instagram yesterday with the goal to make Kylo Ren a meme and succeeded when he tweeted out the hashtag along with a picture of himself shirtless in black pants above his belly button:
If you've been curious as to what Verne Troyer has been up to since Austin Powers and celebrity reality shows, here's your answer. Troyer has been an avid vlogger and doing a great job in showing how most little people get around in their day to day lives. He's also showing us dope stuff that he gets, like this miniature Model S Tesla which is every bit as amazing as it might sound.
Watch Verne roll around in his sweet ride and see just how much work Tesla put into building a miniature model below!
