Blade Runner 2049 was recently screened for some lucky members of the press and the first reactions have hit social media. If you have been hoping this movie would be as amazing as it looks, then prepare yourselves for an incredible film that is being called a "masterpiece" and "mind-blowing".
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!
The Denis Villeneuve directed film is set to be released on October 7th, so we're almost there! Read the reactions below and let us know what you think!
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
The film stars Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Sylvia Hoeks, Ana de Armas, Carla Juri, David Dastmalchian, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, and Jared Leto.
John Cena and Kumail Nanjiani are set to co-star in an untitled buddy cop comedy that will be helmed by Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer. Deadline Hollywood reports that Universal has acquired the project that is written by Murray Miller (Tour De Pharmacy and 7 Days in Hell).
David Bernad and Fleischer most recently produced Brie Larson’s directorial debut Unicorn Store, and Bernad produced Mike White’s critically acclaimed Brad’s Status, both of which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
There aren't many detials on the project, but I don't know about you, but seeing Cena and Kumail together could be magical. Both are very funny actors and are physically opposite.
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?
You know what the world has been missing? A store that is completely focused on Godzilla and Godzilla merchandise! Well, the first official Godzilla retail shop is now a reality and it will open next month on October 30th in Tokyo, Japan.
It’s called Godzilla Store Tokyo and it will be located in Shinjuku on the first floor of the Shinjuku Toho Building, which is the perfect location as the building has a giant Godzilla head on top of it!
According to Moviche, the store will feature around 500 Godzilla items for sale, some of them will be exclusive to the store.
One day I need to go to Japan. There's just so much cool stuff there that I want to see and I've never been.
Lawbreakers, the game that has made headlines as of late for astronomically low in-game population numbers and their creator saying he needs to be less of a dick to sell more copies, is going to be free to play this weekend on Steam. From September 28th until October 2nd, anyone curious can jump in the game and give it a whirl. If you happen to like what you see, the game is running for 25% off its normal price for a total of $22.49.
Here's a new trailer to celebrate the event:
For what it's worth, I thought Lawbreakers was a fun game. That said, I remember many people complaining about it at launch as the specs were too high for most computers, and the game launched without a Team Deathmatch...which is just ridiculous. That's since been added, so perhaps more people will jump in this weekend and decide their fans of this game.

Kyle MacLachlan has picked up his next gig now that Showtime’s Twin Peaks has come to an end. Deadline Hollywood reports that MacLachlan has joined Jack Black and Cate Blanchett in the cast of Amblin's new filmThe House With a Clock in Its Walls, which is based on the 1973 John Bellairs horror book of the same neame illustrated by Edward Gorey. Expert Horror director Eli Roth is helming.
Eric Kripke (Supernatural) wrote the script based on the novel. The movie is about a recently orphaned 10-year-old boy who discovers a world of hidden passageways, magic and danger in his uncle’s old house. MacLachlan will play Isaac Izard, the sinister original owner of the house.
MacLachlan, recently reprised his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper in David Lynch’s recent Twin Peaks revival. The role in this film seems like a good fit for him. What do you think? Have you read the book that this film is based on? Do you think Eli Roth will do it justice?
People are pretty pumped about the new Punisher series to come out. Maybe even more so than The Defenders. For one, as far as anyone can tell, Iron Fist won't be in it. But the other thing that is so exciting is seeing how Frank Castle evolves as a character. From first seeing him in Daredevil Season 2, our expectations were set pretty high up. But we may be in for something completely new with The Punisher because according to Bernthal, who plays Castle, we haven't seen the real Punisher in the series yet.
In a Q&A with fans at Salt Lake Comic Con, Jon Bernthal revealed that according to him, Frank Castle hasn't become the Punisher yet in Daredevil Season 2.
"The way I look at it is that his time in the military is sort of separate. The character that was in Daredevil season two, that wasn't the Punisher to me. That was a man that this traumatic event - he's still reeling from that. Everything in his life has been a reaction to that. he's not a guy looking to rid the criminal element of Hell's Kitchen. He could care less about that. He's not about that."
The second season of Daredevil was all about Frank Castle's one-man mission against the people who wronged him and had anything to do with his family's murder. But the solo series will deal with his change. How he goes from a man fueled by revenge to a man set on punishment. This is also seen in a new promo video posted on the Punisher Twitter Page. It shows Punisher ready to collect as a skull is spray painted over his face. Check it out below.
I can't wait to see how they flesh out this character in the upcoming series. Fingers crossed they don't mess it up.
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!?
