Escape Plan 2: Habes hasn't even been released yet, but that didn't stop Sylvester Stallone and director Steven C. Miller from starting work on Escape Plan 3: Devil's Station. The third film in the franchise is currently in production and Stallone has shared a couple fun videos from the set showing off the shooting location. You even get to see co-star Dave Bautista in costume.
The film is currently shooting at Mansfield prison, which is where all the exterior shots for The Shawshank Redemption were filmed. I thought that was pretty cool! When talking about it, Stallone says:
“On location doing ESCAPE PLAN 3 at Mansfield prison, where they filmed The exterior shots for the film. Shawshank redemption but they never filmed the inside of this place. Trust me , doing hard time in here must have been HARD core Hell !! Hanging With my good buddy and costar @davebautista. The second one hasn’t come out yet… This is just to clarify things… Escape plan 2 has not come out yet, but we are working on the next installment.”
I liked the first Escape Plan film, but I certainly didn't expect to see two sequels! It will be interesting to see how these sequels turn out. I'm sure they'll at least be as entertaining as the first film. Check out the set videos below!
A fantastically captivating new trailer has been released for an upcoming new film called Wonderstruck, which has been met with a lot of positive buzz from critics. I loved what I saw in this first trailer as it has a mysterious magical element as two kids from completely different ears embark on a journey to find answers to what they are looking for.
Based on Brian Selznick’s critically acclaimed novel Ben and Rose are children from two different eras who secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his home and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out on quests to find what they are missing that unfold with mesmerizing symmetry.
This is very much a family film and it stars Oakes Fegley (Pete’s Dragon), Julianne Moore (Far From Heaven), Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine) and introduces Millicent Simmonds.
Wonderstruck comes from the same author who wrote Hugo and he also wrote the screenplay. The movie was directed by Todd Haynes (Carol, Mildred Pierce) and it will be released by Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions on October 20th, 2017.
I'll be the first to admit I was very skeptical on whether or not Star Trek: Discovery would be worth the price of admission to those who will have to subscribe to CBS All Access to watch it, but these past few weeks I've been leaning more towards "yes." Today, I'm upgrading that to a "hell yes," after witnessing some of the awesome visuals that this show will bring in this new behind the scenes look at the series.
We see Klingon ships, space battles, and even a Tribble! It all looks stunning, and really has me hoping that this serialized series lives up to the hype! Share your thoughts below and get ready for Star Trek: Discovery this Sunday!
I don't know about anyone else, but the only scene in IT that truly scared me was that crazy projector scene! Even seeing it now in Lego form has me a bit shaken up, although I'll probably get over it much quicker than when I saw it in the film. Check out the work of Huxley Berg Studios below and let us know how you think they did!
As we reported a couple days ago, Epic Games was accidentally allowing PS4 and Xbox One owners to play online together in their game Fortnite and didn't even realize what they had done until it was pointed out. Once it was discovered, Epic Games quickly moved to fix the problem, and now Microsoft's Phil Spencer has spoken out to say he wishes the company would've just let it be:
For those who have been following the crossplay discussions for the past year, this should come as no surprise. Spencer has been pushing for Sony and Microsoft to unify their online servers for 3rd party games for quite a while, and has even allowed some Microsoft games to crossplay with the Nintendo Switch. Of course, his motive in doing so is to help the Xbox One better compete against the PS4 in terms of sales, but when you're a gamer do you really care about the motive so long as it helps you?
In either case, with Sony opposed to any form of crossplay, it doesn't appear likely the company will take too kindly to Fortnite flipping the switch back on. Do you think we'll ever see a game that's truly cross-platform?
I know a lot of Marvel movie fans could care less about seeing a new Fantastic Four film outside of the hands of Marvel Studios at this point. Fox has just royally screwed it up with their attempts, especially the last one that was directed by Josh Trank. That film was a disaster.
But, what would you think about Kingsman: The Golden Circle director Matthew Vaughn taking on a new big screen adaptation of Fantastic Four? During a recent interview with Cinema Blend, the director says that he feels an "obligation" to make up for that last attempt to bring these characters to the big screen.
“The other one I’ve felt an obligation to do is, I wouldn’t mind maybe making a Fantastic Four film to apologize to everyone out there that maybe it didn’t go very well for them. It’s brilliant. One of my favorites is the Fantastic Four, so maybe one day I’ll try and rectify the mistake.”
You know what? I would actually trust Vuaghn with the franchise. I loved what he did with Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class, so I think he would actually give us a badass Fantastic Four film adaptation.
Right now, the studio is currently developing a kids version of Fantastic Four, which seems absolutley ridiculous. But that's the direction they are currently looking take the franchise at this point for some reason. It's like they are just going out of their way to piss off fans!
Since they won't give the Fantstic Four film rights back to Marvel, at least give Vaughn a chance to show us what he could do with it! What do you think about Vuaghn wanting to direct a Fantastic Four movie? Do you think he would be a good choice?
I've got some good news and some bad news for all of you fans of The Venture Bros. The good news is the series will return to Adult Swim for a seventh season! The bad news is we won't see it until November 11th, 2018! Yikes!
The return of the series was announced on Adult Swim with a bump that was uploaded onto YouTube by a fan, which you can watch below. The bump aired on Friday and discouragingly points out that it's been 543 days since The Venture Bros. Season 6 ended and that we have to wait 422 days for Season 7 to premiere.
That means by the time Season 7 airs, two years, seven months, and 22 days will have passed without any new episodes of The Venture Bros. That's a long ass time to wait! Hopefully, the world hasn't ended in a nuclear holocaust by the time it's supposed to air!
The time gap between Season 4 and Season 5 is about the same as this gap between seasons 6 and 7. I'm not sure why it takes them so damn long to develop these seasons for the series, but at least we know it's coming.
There will be ten episodes in Season 7 and we will also be getting a Season 8 with ten more additional episodes. I know we've got a long time to wait, but if you've never watched the series, you have plenty of time to catch up!
Netflix has just released the full trailer for Marvel's The Punisher, and holy Freakin' shit! This series looks insanely great! This first trailer is powerful, brutal, and awesome. I can't wait to see this series! It looks like it could be the best of the Netflix Marvel series so far. Just wait until you watch this trailer! There's no way Marvel and Disney would have given us a film that is as hardcore as this series looks. This is going to be the proper adaptation that The Punisher deserves.
After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
The cast also features Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Girls, The Lake House), Deborah Ann Woll (Marvel’s Daredevil, True Blood), Ben Barnes (Westworld, The Chronicles of Narnia), Amber Rose Revah (Emerald City, Indian Summers), Michael Nathanson (The Knick, The Wolf of Wall Street), Jaime Ray Newman (Bates Motel), Jason R Moore (A Lonely Place for Dying), Daniel Webber (11.22.63) and Paul Schulze (Nurse Jackie).
Sony Pictures has released new domestic and international trailers for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and they offer lots of fun and adventurous new footage that I think some of you will enjoy. We even get a glimpse at what happens to the board game version of Jumanji from the original film. It looks like maybe the person who finds the board game on the beach ended up being the one to adapt it into a video game.
When I first heard about this movie getting made I was a little leery, but I've really enjoyed what I've seen in the trailers that have been released, especially in these new ones. I'm actually excited to take the fam to go see the movie! Watch the trailer and tell us what you think!
In a brand new Jumanji adventure, the tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji’s world – pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. To survive, they’ll play as characters from the game: meek Spencer becomes a braveexplorer (Dwayne Johnson); hulky jock Fridge becomes a tiny genius (Kevin Hart); It-girl Bethany becomes a bookworm professor (Jack Black); and unathletic Martha becomes an amazonian warrior (Karen Gillan). To beat the game and return to the real world with their lives, they’ll have to start seeing things in an entirely different way.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was directed by Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard, Bad Teacher, and Sex Tape) and it will be released in theaters on December 22nd.
Yesterday we told you about how Firewatch's review score dropped suddenly due to a racist slur in one of PewDiePie's videos. Well, Valve have decided that Steam will not play host to review bombings anymore. Ok sure, these bombings can't be stopped, but the overall picture can be revealed.
In their new updates as listed on Steam today, there will be a new feature whereby all reviews over time by all users will be shown. This means that sudden bad reviews during a short period might not put potential buyers or review aggregators off. Like the recent Firewatch review bombing that sent the game's score plummeting.
I feel this is a move in the right direction. Why should a sudden outrage or attack deaden years of good reviews? Valve have also indicated that more than just Steam reviews will count towards the tally.
One frequent piece of feedback we’ve heard regarding the recent changes is that it has become more difficult to find and read the helpful, articulate reviews written by customers that obtained the game outside of Steam. We want to make sure that helpful reviews can be surfaced regardless of purchase source, so we're making a change to the defaults. Starting today, the review section on each product page will show reviews written by all users, regardless of purchase type. By default you'll now see reviews written by all players of the game, including Steam customers, Kickstarter backers, bundle customers, streamers, and other users that acquired the game outside of Steam.
Do you think this will prevent what happened with Firewatch? Is there anything else you feel they could do? Let us know.
