Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For THE GUEST In San Francisco

Win Tickets To An Advance For THE GUEST on September 29th at 7:30PM in San Francisco.


From the director of YOU’RE NEXT and featuring a standout, badass performance from Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”), comes THE GUEST: a tense, action-packed and unpredictable film like everything and nothing you've ever seen before. Empire Magazine called it "a demented action-horror hybrid of sci-fi conspiracy thriller and gore-fest", and Vanity Fair said, “THE GUEST is big, it’s bold, it’s badass, full of flavor Hollywood wishes it could pour over its vanilla blockbusters.”


A soldier (Dan Stevens) introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.

Nightwing TV Show Headed To TNT

There was some talk recently that Batman's ex-Robin Nightwing might be joining the ranks of The CW's successful Arrow series. That turns out to be unfounded, since Nightwing is getting his own show on TNT. Bruce Wayne's young ward Dick Grayson will front the young super friends of new series Titans.

This would be a version of the Teen Titans, although the "teen" part of that title is being ditched to indicate the show's more mature approach. The pilot episode will see Grayson "emerge from the shadow of Batman to become Nightwing, the leader of a fearless band of new superheroes including Starfire, Raven and many others".

The show is pitched as "a dramatic adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book titles ever".

Given the success of the Teen Titans animated series in the early '00s, the fact that Nightwing is famously the most handsome man in the DC stable (so they're going to have to cast someone prettier that Green Arrow's Stephen Amell; good luck with that) and the motley crew of the Titans, this could be a real winner. Oh, and let's just hope they go with the pre-New 52, non-sex-obsessed version of Starfire.

While DC have been late to challenge Marvel on the big screen, it's currently exploding on television, with Titans set to join the aforementioned Arrow and The Flash on The CW, Constantine on NBC, and the rather different Batman spin-off Gotham on Fox. Whether that leads to over-saturation and one or two of those falling by the wayside is currently only known to the omnipotent Spectre.

Akiva Goldsman (Batman Forever, Batman & Robin) is writing the Titans pilot and exec-producing, so it's in safe hands...

#TheoJames Is Returning To The Underworld Franchise

Theo James will be going back to Underworld.

The Divergent actor is attached as the lead in the fifth film in the vampire action franchise, which Lakeshore Entertainment is currently developing.

James, who played a vampire named David in 2013's Underworld: Awakening, will be the central character in the new film, which is not a reboot but rather an expansion of the existing universe. Sources say there was an option on James because of his work on the previous film, and he'll star opposite two new female characters. Casting is underway for those roles, with plans to start shooting in the spring.
Cory Goodman has been hired to write the script, as The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported.

James' star has risen significantly since he appeared in Underworld: Awakening because of his lead role in YA franchise Divergent. The film, starring James opposite Shailene Woodley, has earned $274.9 million worldwide. The sequel, Insurgent, recently wrapped shooting, and there are two more films — Allegiant Part 1 and Part 2 — in the franchise, which will all star James.

DOLPHIN TALE 2 Review. The Film Gives Us Hope

DOLPHIN TALE 2 delivers another heart-warming story that the whole family can enjoy. The story continues with everyone’s favorite prosthetic-wearing dolphin, Winter, as big changes come into her life. With the death of her beloved surrogate mother, Panama, Winter takes a turn for the worse as she goes into mourning. With the threat of being transferred to another aquarium, as dolphins cannot survive without another dolphin companion, her care takers at Clearwater Marine Hospital try to come to terms with the threat of her loss.


With the 30-day countdown until Winter leaves, a young female dolphin is found and taken to the marine hospital. Since she is so young, she will not be able to be released back into the wild and could, potentially, be the perfect match for Winter. With this possibility she is given the name of Hope. DOLPHIN TALE 2’s most suspenseful scenes are with the interaction of Winter and Hope to see if these two will be able to bond and become friends.



Along with Winter and Hope, we are reintroduced the always-interfering pelican, Rufus, and a sea turtle caught in fishing wires, Mavis. Watching Rufus interact with, care for and become the protector of Mavis gives some of the biggest laughs of the movie. The comedic relief of these two helps to lighten the mood and shows us another fun-filled friendship and they are destined to become fan favorites.


All of the original cast are back for this second tale. Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff, and Kris Kristofferson all return to reprise their roles. Bethany Hamilton is a delightful addition to the movie as well. In the first DOLPHIN TALE, Sawyer and Hazel were young kids whose friendship formed while Hazel (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) learned about sea life alongside her dad, Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick Jr.) while he worked at the Clearwater Marine Hospital. Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) was the boy who helped Winter after she was found with a crab trap found around her tail. After bonding with Winter, Sawyer was allowed to assist with her recovery at the marine hospital. Now, Sawyer and Hazel are teens and their friendship is becoming, awkwardly, more than friends. This budding romance is touched on lightly to the thrill of teenage girls and horror of pre-teen boys.


DOLPHIN TALE 2 is a must-see for anyone wanting to see a heartwarming movie that the whole family can enjoy. You will laugh, cry and cheer as you root for this menagerie of sea animals and humans alike.

The Drop Review: Gritty, Noir Taste of Brooklyn Crime

The Drop is old-school crime with a lovable puppy thrown in for color.
There's two different - and nearly diametrically opposed - Brooklyn, New Yorks: the new one, filled with hipsters and well-to-do's who attend Brooklyn Nets games at the arena. The other is the Brooklyn of my grandmother's time: working class, tough, and filled with characters you'd never pass on a dark walk home. This is the world surrounding The Drop, a classic gritty Noir thriller that brings Brooklyn back to its deservedly old-school status.

Bob (Tom Hardy) lives a solitary life in his dead parent's home, attends a soon-to-be shuttered church, and tends bar at Cousin Marv’s, a Brooklyn dive owned by his cousin Marv (the late James Gandolfini). Unfortunately, Marv has lost the bar to a Chechen gang who use it on occasion as a drop for all the dirty money they're making. After a robbery goes down in the bar, the Chechens demand their lost money, suspecting an inside job. But Bob has more important things to worry about: the discovery of a wounded Pit Bull puppy and the similarly battered Nadia (Noomi Rapace), along with the bruiser Deeds who not only expects Bob to pay for the dog but to stay away from his girlfriend. As the police begin to close in on the robbers, and the Chechens choose the bar for a Super Bowl drop, Bob must decide whether Deeds is a threat, while Marv must choose his destiny before the Chechens do it for him.

The Drop is directed by the Belgian Michaƫl R. Roskam, who's new to American cinema. His style - and appreciation for classic Noir - certainly shows in nearly every frame, and it's a welcome return to a genre that had gotten a bit...happy...in recent films. I love Noir because it's usually unrelenting and unapologetic, filled with villains who command the screen and anti-heroes that make us question why we love them so much. Our leads are well-drawn victims of their environment, forced either to one side (Bob) or the other (Deeds), while some (Nadia and Marv) are nudged just enough off-center to make them either victims or some thug's next meal.

Hardy's performance will seem dim-witted to the un-educated Summer movie fan, but his slow demeanor hides important reveals and a simmering rage that Hardy keeps tightly controlled until it's time to play. And when that moment happens, it reminded me of his performance in Lawless: more dangerous than any other person in the room, but never one to boast about it. Roskam lets Hardy and Gandolfini (in his final performance) chew on the meaty script by Penner Dennis Lehane, one moment playing deadpan humor and the next planning to how to get one over on the Chechens. We come to feel sorry for these characters, as if a breath of sunshine or a change of scenery would bring them back into the fold; but this isn't Fairytale Town, and I have zero problem with that.

And yet, it's not a perfect script: Marv's situation isn't nearly as deep as I'd hoped, and the film goes on a bit longer than needed. Lehane is trying to tell three stories - robbery, dog, exposition, whodunnit - some parts of which don't blend too well, leaving Marv out of the action for too long while emphasizing Bob's burgeoning relationship with Nadia. But Roskam's direction is solid, slowly building the tension between Bob, Marv, and Deeds while Lehane's rather sick sense of humor bubbles up throughout the film, adding much-needed levity to the terse environment. The appearance of the dog doesn't hurt either, its playful and loving glances at Nadia and Bob providing a contrast to the crime world Roskam paints so well.

In the end, The Drop achieves exactly what it sets out to do: tell a classic crime thriller that entertains just enough without trying too hard. It's a fitting end to a great career for Gandolfini, and one you shouldn't miss, whether you see it now or later. Add this one on your movie To-Do List, for it might even surprise us come Oscar season.

The Drop is rated R for some strong violence and pervasive language.and has a runtime of 106 minutes.

Are You Ready For A Married With Children Spinoff TV Show?

Nearly 20 years after Married … With Children ended its run, Bud Bundy could be returning to TV.

The series that rocketed leads Ed O'Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino to stardom could see some members of the dysfunctional Bundy clan back on the small screen with a TV spinoff in the works at Sony Pictures Television, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

As first reported by E!, the studio that produced the Fox series is taking out a pitch for a follow-up to Married … With Children based on Faustino's Bud Bundy. It's unclear which, if any, other castmembers would be involved in the potential spinoff. Fox re-aired the pilot in 2012 as part of the series' 25th anniversary.

Married … With Children was one of the first original series on Fox. The multicamera comedy ran for 11 seasons from 1987 to 1997 and was created by Michael G. Moye and Ron Leavitt. It was the longest-lasting live-action sitcom to air on Fox. It's also unclear who is writing and producing the follow-up.
The Married … With Children castmembers have all gone on to success. O'Neill currently stars on ABC's Emmy darling Modern Family. Applegate has a successful film career and starred on TV series Jesse, Samantha Who and Up All Night. She continues to be one of the most sought-after actresses every pilot season. Sagal currently is wrapping up the final season of FX's biker drama Sons of Anarchy and is a successful singer. Faustino recently reunited with his former TV dad on Modern Family. The cast also recently reunited during Sagal's Walk of Fame ceremony.

The Married … With Children spinoff comes as nostalgia continues to be a hot trend on both broadcast and cable. In addition to the sophomore season of ABC's 1980s-set comedy The Goldbergs, Warner Bros. Television also is shopping a Full House TV revival with its original stars said to be involved in some capacity, and Disney Channel successfully revived fellow TGIF comedy Boy Meets World with follow-up sequel Girl Meets World, which has already been renewed for a second season.

Trailer For MAPS TO THE STARS

Here is the trailer for David Cronenberg’s MAPS TO THE STARS.

With this tale of a secret-filled Hollywood family on the verge of implosion, award-winning director David Cronenberg forges both a wicked social satire and a very human ghost story from our celebrity-obsessed culture.



From a screenplay by acclaimed author, screenwriter and West Coast chronicler Bruce Wagner, and featuring an ensemble cast that includes Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon, MAPS TO THE STARS tours the seductive allure and the tender, darkly comic underbelly of contemporary success.

BATMOBILE Is Here. Official Image Of The Bad Ass Ride.

Thus far, Zack Snyder and his Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice team have done their best to get out ahead of spy snoopers and set snappers to put some of the more central imagery – Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman – online officially in decent lighting. But with the recent set leak of new Batmobile shots, Snyder is playing catch-up, releasing a fresh official pic of Bruce Wayne’s new wheels.

Apparently Batman's dislike of guns doesn't extend to the vehicular sort. And no Batman looking sad next to it, like he’s just discovered his tax disc ran out, either. Shot by unit photographer Clay Enos, it’s a proper glimpse of the car Affleck will be tooling around in come 2016.

The movie, of course, finds Henry Cavill’s Superman going up against Affleck’s vigilante, though it won’t be long before they team up (we imagine) to fight the likes of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor or meet some other potential Justice League team members.

With Diane Lane, Amy Adams, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, Callan Mulvey, Yao Okamoto, Jeremy Irons, Jason Momoa and Laurence Fishburne in the cast, Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice is set for release on March 25, 2016.

23 Jump Street Is In The Works

22 Jump Street is the tenth-highest-grossing movie of the year at the domestic box office–and the highest-grossing movie of the year to feature no superheroes, transformers, monsters, apes, LEGOs, or Maleficents. Unsurprisingly, Deadline reports that Sony is working on a Jump Street threequel (a possibility that 22 Jump Street teasingly joked about.)

The studio has hired writer Rodney Rothman, who was one of the four credited writers on 22 Jump Street. It’s unclear at this point whether directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will helm the threequel, but they are already onboard as producers.

Hayley Atwell & The Howling Commandos First Look

She fought the good fight in the Marvel comics and the Captain America films, now Agent Peggy Carter fights it again on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The badass heroine, played by Hayley Atwell, will be seen in a 1940s-era flashback kicking off the Sept. 23 season premiere of the ABC series — and TV Guide Magazine has the first look!

Back in the day, Carter was an integral member of the S.H.I.E.L.D. prototype group Strategic Scientific Reserve and her path was similar to that of Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), who must now rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up after the seismic events of last season.

"Coulson is a big student of history and wants to return to those old ideals of Agent Carter's time," says executive producer Jed Whedon. "He's, like, 'Let's be the S.H.I.E.L.D. we were meant to be!' He wants to do the job right this time."

Atwell, who will star in the 2015 spinoff series Marvel's Agent Carter, is joined in the flashback by Kenneth Choi and Neal McDonough, playing their Captain America characters Jim Morita and Dum Dum Dugan, respectively. No word yet if either actor has signed for the Agent Carter series.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9/8c on ABC.

Is This The New Batmobile?

Was this armored car designed for the Dark Knight? New images, which purportedly show the new Batmobile, were posted this morning by two Detroit-based Instagram users (one of whom has since removed his photo). The pictures above and below were reportedly taken near the River Rouge suburb of Detroit, where director Zack Snyder has been filming his Man of Steel follow-up Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.


The photos, which were posted by Instagram user amacro13, have not been verified by Warner Bros. — but the car does look like it belongs in Gotham City. Slashfilm points out that the design is very similar to the Batmobile from the videogame Arkham Knight, which is being released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in June 2015. Based on the angles of the new pictures, it’s difficult to compare this Batmobile to the first official photos tweeted by Snyder, which show only the hood and rear wheels of the car.

See all the images after the Jump...






If this is indeed the new Batmobile, it has a very different feel from the vehicles used in previous Batman films. The Batmobile introduced in the 1989 movie Batman resembled the sinuous art deco cars of the ’30s and ‘40s. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy reinvented the Batmobile as a compact, military-type vehicle, modeled as a cross between a Lamborghini and a tank. This new Batmobile resembles a race car more than a classic car, but seems less industrial than the Nolan Batmobile. Its most intriguing new feature is the doors, which appear to open by rising up like wings, then close to form the car’s cockpit.

Morgan Freeman Joins The Cast For TED 2

Morgan Freeman is set to join the cast of Universal and MRC’s “Ted 2.”

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but sources say Freeman would play an iconic civil rights lawyer who comes into the picture when Ted needs to resolve some legal issues.

Seth MacFarlane, who is back writing, directing and voicing the titular vulgar teddy bear, was said to be looking for high-profile actor to join the cast in a fun role and showed interest in Freeman from the start.

Currently filming in Boston, “Ted 2″ stars Mark Wahlberg and the the majority of the original supporting cast. Actress Amanda Seyfried has also joined the R-rated comedy, and several pop culture and A-list cameos expected in the sequel.

Co-written by Alex Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, “Ted 2″ is produced by Scott Stuber with MRC co-financing the pic.

It hits theaters June 26, 2015.

The original “Ted,” co-starring Mila Kunis, grossed a whopping $549 million worldwide including $218 million at the domestic box office.
