THE WALKING DEAD: Negan's Victim Says Goodbye To Fans In An Emotional "Farewell To The Fallen" Video Yes, we know Negan dispatched more than one character during The Walking Dead's season 7 premiere, but just in case there's anyone that hasn't managed to see the episode yet we're still operating on SPOILER ALERT mode. AMC has released a couple of "Farewell to The Fallen" featurettes, in which both Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee) and Michael Cudlitz (Abraham Ford) thank their fans for all of their support over the years. It's sad to see these guys go, but the vids also contain a couple of heart-warming and funny moments as some of the other cast members jump in at the

Scott Derrickson Would Like A More Visceral Experience In A DOCTOR STRANGE Sequel While it's likely we'll see Doctor Strange's next full appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, the possibilities are endless when it comes to the future of Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme after his first film releases on November 4th. Director Scott Derrickson confirmed to Den of Geek that he's been thinking about ideas for a sequel, given his love for the character and the source material. "I love the character, I love the visual possibilities, and I know the comics so well - [the first movie is] the tip of an iceberg.

Who Adam West Want’s To Play In The Batman (But Most Certainly Won’t Be Able To) Adam West is a very important figure in the Batman pantheon, and his contribution to making the character endure can not be understated. It’s why cameos have always been to be a fun idea in film adaptations. Ben Affleck‘s Batman is upcoming too, so recently asked West, if he had a choice, what would he do with a cameo in the film. West got pretty specific with an answer. He said: You know what I’d love to do?

'Shaun the Sheep 2' Promises Another Woolly Stop-Motion Adventure Nick Park rose to fame as the creator of accident-prone pooch Gromit and his faithful human companion Wallace, but that shouldn’t detract from the all-around wonderfulness of his other plaything, Shaun the Sheep. A curious barnyard mute with a taste for hijinks and impromptu adventure, Shaun got his own feature film in 2015, wherein he and his buddies ventured into the city to rescue their beloved farmer after a fit of amnesia convinces him that he’s actually a celebrity hairdresser.

Moana Clip: Dwayne Johnson’s Maui Can Carry a Tune Moana is the next feature-length film by Walt Disney Animation Studios, following the release of the blockbuster hit Zootopia from earlier this year. There are plenty of reasons to get excited about the new musical comedy co-directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin) – one of which being that the movie’s songs were co-written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Peter Jackson to adapt Philip Reeve's sci-fi fantasy series Mortal Engines After spending yet another lengthy amount of time in the world of Middle-Earth with THE HOBBIT trilogy, Peter Jackson is still looking to remain in the realm of fantasy for his next project. Not too long after development began on THE HOBBIT, when it was still to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, Jackson and Fran Walsh began work on adapting Philips Reeve's "Mortal Engines"...

Andrew Garfield Is ‘So Excited Spider-Man Is Back In The Hands Of Marvel’ Andrew Garfield was a pretty decent Spider-Man by most accounts. His Peter Parker was a little Abercrombie and Fitch, but all in all, I think he did a great job and it’s a shame his tenure was cut so short. It seems he has no hard feelings over it though, as he is really looking forward to Tom Holland taking on the character. In fact, he said that he is really excited that Marvel have the property again. Speaking to Fandango, he said: If I am being totally honest, I am so excited Spider-Man is back in the hands of Marvel. I think that’s a really awesome move.

New John Wick 2 Photo Shows Off Sequel’s Enter The Dragon Influence John Wick is clearly a culmination of a ton of action influences, that much is clear. It stands on the shoulders of the best there have been, and is all the better for it. There is going to be one very specific influence in the sequel though. Speaking to Empire, Keeanu Reeves talked about a sequence at the end of the film, and released a photo to go with it. It features villains Riccardo Scamarcio and Ruby Rose Check it out: It looks like one of the big scenes in the film will feature a maze of mirrors which is a purposeful homage to Bruce Lee‘s Enter the Dragon.

Deadpool 2: Fan Petition Calls for Quentin Tarantino to Direct It is no exaggeration to say that few comic book movies have achieved the special kind of success that Fox found with Deadpool. This isn’t just because the film grossed record-breaking totals or that it employed a unique and often hilarious promotional campaign in the months and weeks leading up to the movie’s release. Rather, Deadpool brought with it an R-rating and a disposition that refused to take itself too seriously. The end result was a movie that stayed true to the comic book anti-hero that fans know and love.

Star Wars: Rogue One Director Discusses Darth Vader & Orson Krennic Rogue One: A Star Wars Story  could prove to be the first in a long line of Star Wars “Anthology” films that are not part of the franchise’s central storyline (which continues in 2017 with Star Wars: Episode VIII). A second Star Wars spinoff is already moving forward in the form of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Han Solo movie, featuring Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) and Donald Glover (Atlanta) as a young Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, respectively.

George Lucas no longer involved with developing story for Indiana Jones 5 You know what? I feel that George Lucas is paradoxically not given enough credit for his contributions to pop-culture, while at the same time given way too much credit. Thing is, projects like STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES were definitely his babies, and he was a driving force in what makes them so great - from the stories, to the characters, to the tone, to the...

Aquaman: James Wan Talks Aquaman & Mera’s Relationship Justice League costar Jason Momoa proved to be a source of entertainment throughout production on the next Zack Snyder-helmed DC Extended Universe installment; in-between his antics on the movie’s and set during its wrap-up festivities. Everyone will get to properly meet Momoa’s version of Arthur Curry/Aquaman when Justice League arrives next year – though he’s not the only aquatic Meta-Human featured in the film.

Machinima has partnered with YOMYOMF, Justin Lin (Star Trek Beyond) and NBC Universal to produce a digital reboot of the 80’s television series Knight Rider. YOMYOMF and Lin will produce the new digital series that is in active development for a potential 2017 launch date. The announcement was made by Machinima CEO Chad Gutstein: Knight Rider is an iconic franchise whose concepts of AI and autonomous vehicles were science fiction in the 1980s and are now science fact.

‘Alien: Covenant’s’ New Xenomorphs Have a New Name Prometheus concludes with the Trilobite and the Engineer giving birth to The Deacon. The baby blue-skinned alien hardly ended Sir Ridley Scott‘s film with a bang. Will we ever see that Xenomorph-like creature ever again or was it simply a moment of underwhelming fan service?

Margot Robbie in talks to join the cast of Sony's Peter Rabbit If you're not on-board with transforming all those beloved animated characters of yesteryear into live-action features, you'd best avoid the theater for the next decade. One of the many, and boy do I mean many, upcoming properties getting the live-action spin is Beatrix Potter's "Peter Rabbit". The character appeared in many of Potter's stories and Sony...

20th Century Fox has been developing a remake of ALIEN NATION for over a year now, but according to Jeff Nichols, who signed on to write and direct the project last month, it won't be a remake at all. Nichols chatted with ScreenCrush recently and said that the upcoming film "doesn’t really have anything to do with the original." Apparently the only connection... Read More...

During the course of a romantic relationship, plenty of little, adorable gifts are given between lovers. The most typical gifts are usually flowers, candy or in some cases a teddy bear. Most of these little gifts end up being disposable, especially if the relationship goes sour. But what if when the relationship went bad, so did these little gifts? A new short film called Teddy Bears Are For Lovers, crafted in the same vein as Gremlins or Child’s Play, imagines what might happen if the teddy bears given to ex-lovers were just as heartbroken as those who were broken up with.

X-Men 2 Trailer Gets a Logan Fan Edit and It's Amazing X2: X-Men United is reedited with the Johnny Cash classic Hurt and retold as Wolverine 3 to possibly become the greatest X-Men trailer ever created.

It’s a classic premise, and for good reason: guy’s wife/girlfriend/daughter vanishes into thin air, guy drives himself halfway to madness in dogged attempts to get her back, guy grows unkempt beard of mourning. It has drama and intrigue wired right into the plot beats, allows for some salacious secrets, and who doesn’t love a good mystery? George Sluizer’s 1988 film The Vanishing may have done it best, but just a couple of years ago, David Fincher gave him a run for his money with Gone Girl.

Even though Back to the Future Part II predicted 2015 as the year the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series, the team didn’t make it to the Major League Baseball championship game until this year.

Donald Glover (Community, Magic Mike XXL) is one of those young actors that fans keep wanting to cast in everything. He's funny, charismatic, handsome, quick witted and has that kind of boy-next-door air to him that Hollywood loves. Most notably there was a huge campaign for him to play Spider-Man, though obviously that ended up not happening (in live action, at least). As soon as Disney officially announced its Star Wars prequel film about a young Han Solo, Glover's name once...Read MoreRead Comments

We are pleased to present a first look at Quentin Lee's new short film On Halloween, starring Candy Cheung, Jerry Hernandez and Junyi Casper Lee, the latter making his screen debut as ... the baby. Here's a quick description: "An homage to the 1979 classic When a Stranger Calls, On Halloween explores babysitting and child endangerment with modern technology." Lee raised money for the movie via Kickstarter this summer and it's finished just in time for the scariest holiday of the year.

Unless you’re fluent in Russian (and we’re not), you’ll have a hard time figuring out what the story is in this new trailer for an upcoming horror film called The Bride. The subtitles aren’t in English, so we’re definitely missing out on what appears to be some sort of narrative setup, but one thing is for sure: Whatever the hell is going on in this trailer, it’s terrifying.

While we're not quite out of the October woods yet, things are winding down for the month and that means that we have a slew of new films and shows coming to Netflix! One of the more notable releases is that of Jon Favreau's THE JUNGLE BOOK, which is joined by a lot of Netflix originals like The Crown.

The release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is just a few short weeks away, and anticipation and intrigue are both high; it’s a welcoming return to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World for sure, but will Fantastic Beasts live up to its hype? Let’s hope so, because there’s another four movies within the Fantastic Beasts franchise to come.

Although I mostly like Daredevil and I was quite fond of Luke Cage, Jessica Jones remains the crown jewel of the Marvel Netflix shows. The series is a real “Best of Both Worlds” situation, combining Daredevil‘s knack for stylish action with Luke Cage‘s keen attention to location and character. And it does while also being very much its own thing with its own unique perspective that also fits snugly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Oh, those sweeping shots of Florence and Istanbul. Ah, the Renaissance palazzos. And the inevitable anagram hidden in a classic painting, and the frantic quest that elevates perusals of museum stacks into thrilling set pieces. Yes, Dan Brown’s best-selling hero and the world’s most beleaguered...B

The CW has released a batch of promotional images for the upcoming forth installment of Legends of Tomorrow season 2, and they give is a look at some of the characters dressed in Civil War-era garb.

Michael Douglas reveals that he would love to work on an Avengers movie with Hawkeye himself, Jeremy Renner, at some point in the future.

Earlier pics from the set of Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil spinoff, The Punisher, have mainly featured Jon Bernthal (Frank Castle), but this time we get a first glimpse of a couple of the show's supporting characters. It was previously announced that Amber Rose Revah (House of Saddam, From Paris with Love) would be playing a "highly-trained sophisticated Homeland Security agent" named Dinah Madani, and here we see her alongside The Knick actor Michael Nathanson, who has not yet been officially named as a cast member.

The Get Down is a lavish production and looks like one, but even fans of Baz Luhrmann‘s opulent style may be surprised to learn just how expensive it is. A new report claims the 1970s hip-hop drama costs something like $16 million per episode, meaning the entire 12-episode first season will come out to a total of around $190 million. Making matters worse, viewership estimates indicate The Get Down may be a rare flop for the streaming service.  It goes without saying that The Get Down was always meant to be a costly affair.

Universal is all-in with their massive shared universe reboot of classic monster films.
