Check Out BossLogic’s ‘Spider-Man: Homies’ Poster Well known artist Kode aka BossLogic has done it again with another fabulous poster creation.  This time, it’s their take on Spider-Man. Spider-Man: Homies poster created by BossLogic Titled Spider-Man: Homies, the poster mockup features the signature red and blue boots and suit of Peter Parker, along with a pair of red and white Nikes belonging to a black-suited friend.  It’s more than likely Miles Morales, which would be SO FREAKING AWESOME. Again, this is an artist’ rendering, and not an official poster from Marvel, Disney, or Sony (video games). After @TomHolland1996 rev

The show will begin airing this fall in the timeslot held by the original show before its sudden cancellation. The main cast outside of Barr will be returning for the... Read More...

As ensemble studio comedies go, this is definitely one of them. People often sing Facebook’s praises as the ideal way to stay connected with old friends and maintain a bond that might otherwise fade away over time. That may work for some folks, but for five friends who’ve known each other since they were kids it’s just not cutting it. Instead, for the entire month of May every year, they play an epic game of tag.

Snyder Cut: Justice League’s Wonder Woman Was a Lot More Like Man of Steel’s Superman Though it’s been almost nine months since Justice League hit theaters and flopped at the box office, desire from Snyderbronies — the true fans of the DCEU — to see what the film would have looked like without the interference of alleged fake feminist Joss Whedon is stronger than ever. Those Snyderbronies want Warner Bros to release the Snyder Cut, a badass version of the film which preserves Zack Snyder’s Vision in all its pristine, Randian glory.

Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom Review – Well, at Least it Has Dinosaurs Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom 5 / 10 Reviewer {{ reviewsOverall }} / 10 Users (0 votes) BC Rating Jurassic World was one of those films that pretty much everyone saw then instantly forgot — then, when reminded that it was a thing, decided they didn’t like it at all. Meandering from cliché to cliché, all of the magic from the original Steven Spielberg classic evaporated somewhere around when Owen (Chris Pratt) rode a motorcycle next to raptors.

The Twitter war between President Donald Trump and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn continued Sunday when Gunn took to Twitter to respond to one of the president’s tweets. Trump sent out a tweet telling his political opponents not to resist (typical democracy stuff), promising that if Democrats agree to strengthen the border (presumably by giving Trump money to build his wall), it will end crime. Democrats, fix the laws. Don’t RESIST. We are doing a far better job than Bush and Obama, but we need strength and security at the Border!

Killmonger Is the Real King in Recut Black Panther Trailer New fan-cut Black Panther trailer shows the story through Killmonger's eyes and it's awesome.

Theo James in Trailer for Apocalyptic Film 'How It Ends' from Netflix "There's a lot to be afraid of out there…" Netflix has debuted an official trailer for an indie film titled How It Ends, the latest from filmmaker David M. Rosenthal (Failing Up, Janie Jones, A Single Shot, The Perfect Guy). How It Ends is a post-apocalyptic survival thriller, one of those where they don't really explain the apocalypse or what happened. The plot involves a desperate father trying to return home to his pregnant wife after a mysterious apocalyptic event turns everything to chaos.

Seth Rogen Humiliated Paul Ryan By Rejecting A Selfie Attempt In Front Of His Kids Seth Rogen stopped by The Late Show to chat with Stephen Colbert on Friday night, where — after briefly celebrating the legalization of marijuana in Canada — the two reminisced over the times the Sausage Party star trolled Donald Trump Jr.

"With all the deserters, you never know who's in the uniform." Music Box Films has debuted an official US trailer for The Captain, a German film from last year about a deserter who discovers new powers when he is mistaken for a captain. After years making big Hollywood blockbusters (Flightplan, The Time Traveler's Wife, RED, R.I.P.D., Insurgent), filmmaker Robert Schwentke returned to Germany to make this film. It's a play on the Stanford Prison Experiment, where someone with power suddenly takes this power further than thought possible.

When it comes to remakes of iconic horror movies, there's a reason why fans aren't always the biggest supporters; more often than not, those remakes merely serve as a collection of "remember this scene?" moments which can never hope to capture the same spark as the original. That said, every now and again there's a horror remake which knocks it out of the park and can... Read More...

Samuel L. Jackson Thinks Marvel Could Learn From ‘The Incredibles’ Pixar/Disney It’s hard to image a superheroic world without Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, but his time as Frozone in The Incredibles actually predates the eyepatch. The dude knows a thing or two about superheroes, and he’s down to share some of his wisdom while promoting The Incredibles 2.

We don’t have a trailer for Aquaman yet, but we did see some of these characters in Justice League. As we wait for Comic-Con International next month and the trailer finally dropping, Entertainment Weekly did an in depth interview with Amber Heard about her character of Mera. When asked about the Mera we saw in Justice League, as far as the costume goes, Heard said that was only one side of her — and we’ll see a complete picture in Aquaman. Justice League highlighted her militaristic side.

There are a number of TV shows in the works for Warner Bros.' planned DC Universe streaming service and it's now been revealed that Aquaman helmer James Wan will co-direct the planned pilot episode...

AMC Orders More Historic Horror With ‘The Terror’ Season 2 AMC has given the go-ahead to The Terror season 2. Season 1 was adapted from Dan Simmons‘ novel of the same name, but AMC will now turn the series into an anthology show. Each season will focus on a new terrifying (and apparently historic) scenario. The Terror season 2 will be set in America during World War II. If you missed AMC’s The Terror, you missed one of the best shows of 2018. It was a spooky, well-acted, wholly cinematic experience, loaded with drama and, well, terror. While reviewing the show, I had assumed it would be self-contained – a one and done, as it were.

'IT: Chapter Two' Casts Indie Fave Xavier Dolan in Pivotal Role Director Andy Muschietti has assembled an exceptional ensemble of stars to play the grown-up members of the Losers Club in IT: Chapter Two, but he’s not done just yet. The upcoming sequel to last year’s horror hit has just landed a pair of actors for two supporting, but crucial roles — including indie filmmaker and actor Xavier Dolan, who will play the most heartbreaking character of all in a brutal scene that we were sure wouldn’t make it into the sequel.

IFC Films and Sundance Selects have released the official trailer for BLAZE, an emotional, toe-tapping biographical drama co-written, produced, and directed by Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke (THE HOTTEST STATE, TRAINING DAY).

A word of warning to all of you coulrophobics out there: The following trailer contains a nasty-looking clown who carves through its victims like Jason Voorhees on a bender during a 4th of July weekend at Camp Crystal Lake. Granted, its a rather cartoonish display of violence, though I've been in this game long enough to know that triggers come in all shapes and sizes. The slash happy clown I speak of... Read More...

Mid-to-late June usually means the visage of the Gaslamp District in San Diego turns pop culture with the imminent arrival of San Diego Comic Con (SDCC).

Jordan Peele shocked the world in 2017 with Get Out, his feature directorial debut that became a cultural phenomenon and launched a million memes. Producer Jason Blum says Peele is still thinking about possibly making a sequel. But what could a potential Get Out 2 be about? Most movies follow the same cycle: there’s hype leading up to the release, a swath of reviews and features once it comes out, and then maybe a scattered article or two online in the months following. But not Get Out.

New Ant-Man 2 Preview Confirms Avengers 4 Connection Kevin Feige explains how Ant-Man and the Wasp sets up Avengers 4 in a new featurette.

Shia LaBeouf and David Ayer, who previously worked together on the World War II tank drama Fury, will re-team for a film called The Tax Collector. What’s it about? Who the hell knows! Taxes, probably. Break out your W-9s and 1040s – The Tax Collector is coming! Perhaps Batman’s most notorious villain, The Tax Collector is getting his own spin-off film! Oh, wait, my mistake. The Tax Collector is not a Batman villain at all. Instead, it’s the name of a new gritty L.A. crime thriller from Bright and Suicide Squad director David Ayer.

‘Preacher’ returns high on insanity but low on energy. I have a long, storied history with Preacher. A year ago, I wrote FSR’s weekly reviews of Season 2. I’ve read all the graphic novels. I’ve seen every episode multiple times. I’m a little bit of an expert. And my relationship with the show is a bit strange. This is because I love some parts of it. Last summer it was my comfort viewing. I’d put on an episode, especially from Season 1, and all my cares would melt away.

Drake Doremus’s (LIKE CRAZY) ZOE uses science-fiction elements to tell a low-key, dramatic love story about a world where people put their romantic relationships at the mercy of technology. Ewan McGregor and Lea Seydoux play two scientists who develop an algorithm that determines a couple’s compatibility, only to follow that up with artificial intelligence (Theo James) designed to...

Scoot McNairy Scoots On Over To The ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ Cast At this point, it’s safe to assume everyone is in Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Every other day, a new cast member is announced, making this one of the most star-studded films of Tarantino’s career. The latest Once Upon a Time in Hollywood cast addition: character actor Scoot McNairy, who has appeared in Gone Girl, Batman v Superman and the AMC series Halt and Catch Fire. Welcome back to our weekly feature: Someone Just Joined The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Cast. Today’s subject: Mr.

Last year Edgar Wright got us tapping our toes and gripping our seats in the fast-paced, music-infused heist thriller Baby Driver. We’re not sure exactly what the filmmaker’s next project will be, but we now have word on something the Shaun of the Dead director is working on right now, and it’s a kind of project we haven’t seen him tackle before. Edgar Wright has confirmed that he’s currently working on a documentary about the pop rock band Sparks, a cult favorite among music fans.

A Movie Based on Korean-American Superhero Silk is in Early Development at Sony When Spider-Man: Homecoming came out last year we pointed out that virtually everyone in the supporting cast was someone. The big one that caught the eyes of Marvel fans was Tiffany Espensen playing a supporting character named Cindy. Most fans assumed that this was Cindy Moon aka Silk a new character to the Spider-Man mythology. It was a fun Easter egg but no one was really sure if they were planting the seeds for Silk or if it was just there for the fans. According to Deadline it wasn’t just a fun Easter egg.

Your Name was the biggest anime crossover theatrical hit since Studio Ghibli became a household name. And with anime growing to be one of the most formidable markets in the world, it’s no wonder that Netflix wants to tap into Your Name‘s particular brand of cerebral wistfulness. The streaming giant has teamed up with the studio behind Your Name, CoMix Wave Films, to bring the visually stunning film Flavors of Youth to Netflix audiences.

Hail to the Chin! In the kingdom of cult icons, few figures are as passionately adored as Bruce Campbell. The King of the B’s has been gracing our screens for decades, remaining loyal to his roots in low-budget genre fare whilst occasionally rearing his head in network TV shows and mainstream movies for good measure. During his prime, he had all the tools to be an A-list leading man, but Hollywood failed to capitalize on his talents and, as a result, the Chin never received the break he deserved. Their loss… But who can complain about the career Campbell does have?
