Marvel Tried to Keep the Russo Brothers from Killing [Spoiler] in Avengers: Infinity War There was a lot of blood on the ground by the time the credits rolled in Avengers: Infinity War. It seems that Anthony and Joe Russo didn’t have a lot of push back from the studio when it came to wanting to kill characters but there was one exception. Producer Nate Moore talked about it to The Huffington Post but we’ll have to throw up a spoiler warning just in case. If you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War you should probably go do that before someone spoils you.

Liam Neeson to Bark Orders at Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in ‘Men In Black’ Neeson continues to pay his bills with franchise dollars. The time has come for Liam Neeson to retire his particular set of skills. The actor who found new life as an action star in the Taken franchise is looking for a breather from his arduous Hollywood workouts. The Commuter, Run All Night, Taken 3, Non-Stop, Battleship, Taken 2, Wrath of the Titans, The Grey, The A-Team, Clash of the Titans… a few of those are actually good, one is even downright brilliant. What about Non-Stop, though? Seeing Neeson pop up recently in Martin Scorsese’s Silence was a jolt to the system.

Ron Howard's work on Solo accounts for 70% of finished film When Ron Howard came on to replace Phil Lord and Christopher Miller on SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, no one really knew how much he would be changing from what the duo had done.

We now have a more exact figure as to how much of the movie is... Read More...

Comcast Is Officially Bidding For Fox, Setting Up A Fight With Disney UPROXX/iStockphoto After a month of rumors and reports, Comcast has made it official. It’s going to attempt to buy Fox, or at least its production assets. And then Comcast may dump Disney at the altar and drive off with those assets, possibly in a solid gold Lambo. Both Fox and Disney are having shareholder meetings this summer to approve the deal, so Comcast is hoping to lure Fox’s shareholders in with the promise of cold hard cash.

2 New TV Spots for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom The promotional train for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom continues. We have two more TV spots that continue to show off footage for the upcoming movie. The amount of promotional material for this movie is starting to look a little worrying. Usually a studio only puts out this many TV spots when they know they have a terrible movie or they think they’re going to get buried alive at the box office. Incredibles 2 comes out the week before and Pixar movies tend to have legs at the box office. We’ll have to see how this one ends up doing in a month.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan are two of the finest actors of their generation, so naturally, you should put them in a movie where they bring out the best in each other.

You can watch the first trailer now for Paul Dano’s directorial debut (co-writing the script with Zoe Kazan) which looks to act like a stirring showcase for all... Read More...

This week’s episode of Westworld, “Akane no Mai,” finally walked us into Shogun World, a sister park set in Japan’s Edo period. As different as the costumes, culture, and scenery are, viewers looking forward to the introduction of a brave new world, unlike anything we had seen on the show before, may have been slightly underwhelmed by some of the deliberately samey aspects of Shogun World. As our own Chris Evangelista put it in his review: “Shogun World may not be all it’s cracked up to be.” The park has noticeable similarities to Westworld and there are two very good reasons for that.

Michael Bay is Making a Movie for Netflix, Ryan Reynolds to Star Michael Bay, the director of great trash (The Rock, Armageddon) and bad trash (most of the Transformers movies) alike, has always been the kind of filmmaker who shoots his films for the biggest, loudest screens possible. Good or bad or something in-between, his films have been blockbusters in the truest sense of the word – you want them to fill your vision and overwhelm your pitiful, human senses. So here’s some left-turn news for you: Michael Bay is making a movie for Netflix called Six Underground.

MoviePass Parent Company Stock Has Reached An All-Time Low Shutterstock In early May, the unsurprising news arrived that MoviePass was swiftly running out of cash, which led many to believe that the party was almost over. That is to say, the service has been offering an unsustainable (by rational standards) “unlimited” plan (which it recently resurrected) that offers subscribers a movie-a-day in theaters for only $10 per month.

Now the story of a once-hilarious show that was cancelled by Fox, only to be saved by Netflix and become incredibly disappointing in the process. It’s Arrested Development. And it’s back for season 5. Arrested Development Is Back! Is The New Season Any Good? Arrested Development returns for season 5 on Netflix, and it’s becoming increasingly clear that everyone involved with bringing the show back from the dead has made a huge mistake. Netflix’s season 4 was a strange experiment – the busy schedules of the ensemble cast made a traditional season of the show impossible.

This past March, director Steven Spielberg took us into the world of The OASIS and made overwhelming amounts of nostalgia and video game nerdity palatable on the big screen with the adaptation of Ernest Cline’s best-selling book Ready Player One. Now you’ll be able to bring The OASIS home. Ready Player One will be hitting digital services, Blu-ray and DVD just in time for movie nights this summer in July. Coming with it will be a slew of special features showing how Steven Spielberg and his crew created the digital world of The OASIS and more.

20th Century Fox debuted the flashy Bohemian Rhapsody trailer to much fanfare, but there were a few people that it didn’t rock. Primarily, former American Gods showrunner and Twitter extraordinaire Bryan Fuller. Fuller took to his preferred social media platform to express his disappointment that the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer completely glossed over Freddie Mercury’s sexuality. The Queen frontman and the subject of the highly anticipated biopic (played by Rami Malek) was a closeted bisexual man who died from complications with AIDS.

LEGO has really hit their stride over the past decade when it comes to making incredible building block sets that are cleverly designed. That’s especially true when it comes to bringing characters, vehicles and settings from our favorite movies to life. They’ve gotten some help from LEGO Ideas with the likes of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future.

Getty Image It’s 2018, right? At this point, if you’re hanging around Snoop Dogg, you gotta know that chances he’s going to probably offer you a toke from what I can only assume is the finest and most powerful strain of marijuana in the known universe are pretty good. At least that’s what he did to his co-star on the upcoming film The Beach Bum, superstar actor Matthew McConaughey. Last night, McConaughey appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and told the story of how Snoop smoked him out while the pair were on set together.

"You have no idea how hard he hit American culture." Oscilloscope Labs has released the official US trailer for a documentary titled The King, formerly known as Promised Land when it first premiered at last year's Cannes Film Festival. This doc is the latest made by Eugene Jarecki (The Trials of Henry Kissinger, Why We Fight, Reagan, The House I Live In) who delivers a deeply engaging, uber-intelligent, thoughtful documentary comparing Elvis Presley's rise & fall over his life to the rise & fall of America.

Lunch time at Disney World can be particularly busy. I’ve always planned to eat either an early or late lunch, avoiding the 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. crowds. Most lunch places don’t open till 11 a.m. in the parks anyhow, so I have a nice 30-minute window of mostly empty restaurants. Generally I try to eat at one new place every time I visit the park, and while this is getting increasingly hard, there are still some places I haven’t tried yet.

We now know that the wall-crawler will be squaring off with Mysterio in 2019's Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel but what comes next for Peter Parker both in that movie and further into both Phase 4 and 5?

From its very first moments, Vazante makes its intentions apparent.
