Josh Trank Leaves 'Star Wars' Spinoff

Fan speculation about his 'Celebration' absence proves correct.
Story Matt Cummings
Just one year after he was announced to direct an as-of-yet Star Wars spinoff movie (the first belonging to Gareth Edwards' Rogue One), Director Josh Trank (Chronicle and Fantastic Four reboot) has departed the project. The announcement was made on Friday by Trank, who had this to say:

"After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I’m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path. I’ve put a tremendous amount of thought into this, and I know deep down in my heart that I want to pursue some original creative opportunities. That said, the Star Wars universe has always been one of my biggest influences, and I couldn’t be more excited to witness its future alongside my millions of fellow Star Wars fans. I want to thank my friends Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, Simon Kinberg, and everyone at Lucasfilm and Disn…

Movie Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron is a terrific thrillride and a (somewhat) worthy adversary to the original.
Review by Matt Cummings

Director Joss Whedon exits the Marvel Cinematic Universe in high style with the satisfying follow-up to his 2012 blockbuster. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, his team of heroes have taken down the last vestiges of Hydra, leaving a big question for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to consider: does the Earth need The Avengers anymore? The answer comes quickly when Stark tries to develop Artificial Intelligence in the form of Ultron, a global peace-keeping robot. But an ancient weapon soon corrupts his creation, overtaking JARVIS (voiced by Paul Bettany) and spawning a machine of pure hatred (voiced by James Spader), whose plans to rule humanity start by destroying it. As Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the fragile Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of The Avengers face Ul…

Sam Mendes (Director)
“I love the idea of this fantastic car being in a one-on-one battle with another incredible car from Jaguar, which is similarly extraordinary actually. So it’s a cat-and-mouse game through the night time streets of Rome, at great speed, between two of the fastest cars in the world.”


Dave Bautista (Mr. Hinx)
“It’s amazing. It’s one of those scenes that’s going to be very iconic. Just with the two cars racing through the streets of Rome – I mean, how often do you see that? It’s one of those things you only see in a James Bond film.”

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For #PITCHPERFECT2 In Fresno

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For PITCH PERFECT 2 on May 12th at 7:00 PM in Fresno.


The Barden Bellas are back, back, back and this time they're taking on the world. The trouble is that the world doesn't like America, and Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick) and the gang are going to have to sing (and dance) like never before if they're going to make it. And, with any luck, not vomit as much as they did in the first one.


As well as the returning cast you were hoping for - Rebel Wilson as "Fat Amy", Adam DeVine as the leader of the Treblemakers, Bumper Allen, and many more - there are plenty of new names to look forward to, including Hailee Steinfeld as Bella newcomer Emily. You've also got mud wrestling, some magic involving dry leaves and the concept of "Loser" as a language.

#Robotech May Have Found It's Director

According to Deadline, Universal’s Furious 7, director James Wan is in early discussions with Sony Pictures to direct Robotech, the feature adaptation of the 1980s sci-fi anime series that is being eyed as a worldwide franchise.

Wan is one of the hottest directors in town after Furious 7‘s success — it has grossed $1.3 billion so far in worldwide box office — and has a lot of offers on the table. But I’m hearing he and Sony are going to try and make this work though the deal talks are in the beginning stages.

Word is Wan is all for the opportunity to originate a franchise like he did with Warner Bros/New Line’s The Conjuring, which now has a second pic that he plans to direct coming out in 2016.

Hollywood Gang’s Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton are producing a script from Michael Gordon, reuniting the trio who worked on 300. The original U.S. TV series Robotech was based on three different Japanese series and focused on the use of robotic technology found on a crashed alien starship tha…

Loot Crate Review: April 2015

What did we think of April 2015's Fantasy-themed box? Click below to find out!
Review by Matt Cummings After a good March 2015 box that saw Spies as its theme, April arrives with a box chock full of memorable Fantasy goodness. The monthly geek subscription box service is among dozens of entries vying for your hard-earned dollars, with Loot promising a nice return on your $20 monthly subscription. Its hand-picked, cool geeky collection wrapped around a theme faces a lot of competition, but let's see why April's unquestionably slayed its dragon. I love this nondescript sex toy of the month packaging. Upon cracking the case, we find a map and an awesome Dungeons and Dragons t-shirt. I loved this game as a kid, and seeing it return to a shirt near you was a great way to start off the experience. This one alone was probably "worth its value" but as you'll soon see, there's lots of interesting stuff in which to partake. Another favorite film …

Sony Producing Female Installment of 21 Jump Street

School will be in session for female cops.
By Brandon Wolfe
Sony Pictures is proving most predominate in providing female alternatives to its most popular male-driven franchises. First there was the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, which will open next summer, and now word has come down that the studio will also craft a girl-centric installment of its popular 21 Jump Street series. Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs, the writers of Comedy Central’s Broad City, have been hired to write a script, said to be in the same vein as the two existing Jump Street films.

This project will be produced in addition to another original-recipe Jump Streetsequel with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill returning. That film is still a question mark, as the end-credits sequence of 22 Jump Street seemed to take a flamethrower to the very idea of doing yet another sequel. It came out in last year’s Sony hacking scandal that the studio was considering merging the Jump Street universe with the Men In Black franchis…
