Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See #Singstreet In Phoenix

Enter For A Chance To See SING STREET On April 25th at 7:00 PM In Phoenix.


SING STREET is written and directed by John Carney, and stars Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Aidan Gillen, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Jack Reynor, Lucy Boynton and Mark McKenna.


SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised - calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Inspired by writer/director John Carney’s (ONCE, BEGIN AGAIN) life and love for music, SING STREET shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater.

Movie Review: 'The Boss'

The Boss can't sustain the big laughs with a predictable plot.

Review by Matt Cummings

It wasn't too long ago that we were singing the praises of Actress Melissa McCarthy's parody Spy, a raunchy ride that actually gave her a story on which to scaffold her amazing comedic talents. Unfortunately, that moment now seems far away, as The Boss returns to McCarthy's tried (and failed) schtick of solid comedic moments filled with a ton of garbage that barely keeps our interests.

Michelle Darnell (McCarthy) is rude, rich, and doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. Announcing "I'm the 47th richest woman in America!", Darnell dons a professional coif and an insanely high turtleneck as she encourages an arena of hungry guests to become rich. But her success has come at a price, betraying her former mentor Ida (Kathy Bates) and business partner/ex-lover Renault (Peter Dinklage) along the way. There's a reason for Michelle's take-no-prisoners attitude: she was returned several times to an orphanage by a series of foster families. This has resulted in Darnell treating everyone around her like dryer lint, including assistant Claire (Kristen Bell). But when she's convicted of insider trading, she loses everything and must bunk at Claire's paltry apartment. But Darnell won't give up, and soon embarks on a new business to sell Claire's delicious brownies, Girl Scout style. As Renault seeks to take over the business, Michelle must decide if she can turn over a new leaf and treat Claire as a friend, or if a childhood filled with rejection is too tall of a hill to climb.

The Boss is directed by McCarthy's husband Ben Falcone, who also shot the awful Tammy; Darnell isn't that reprehensible, but she's not exactly what we expected either. Foul-mouthed (almost unnecessarily, and that says a lot coming from me) and sexually repressed, McCarthy isn't as appealing when her fish-out-of-water character is so unlikable. She does don the wig and high (really high) turtleneck sweater quite well, mixing tough arrogance with charm. There's some enjoyable displays of McCarthy's physical comedy, getting ejected off a sofa bed, and tumbling down a flight of stairs.

But a lot of this doesn't work. The climax which sees Darnell lock swords with Renault was probably a great idea at the writing table, but it's not edited very well and McCarthy doesn't look convincing battling someone 1/3 of her height. Bell - who I'd love to see in more projects - is good enough here as the straight-(wo)man, eventually getting into the fray by allowing Darnell to grope her breasts as she prepares for a date with her co-worker (the towering and too hairy Taylor Labine). The groping scene goes on way too long (watch This is 40 to see a far more effective version), essentially chewing up screen time. In fact, the 99-minute runtime includes several elongated sequences that left our smallish test audience fairly quiet.

Dinklage is ill-used, to the point that he disappears for a good 30 minutes. But when he's there, his strange accent, pony-tail hair, and silly mannerisms instantly work. I would have love to have seen more of him and less of Bell, who isn't awful but can only hold on so long against McCarthy's potty-mouthed wackiness. It's the same issue I had with Dinklage in Pixels and for exactly the same reasons.

But the worst part of The Boss is its decision not to better develop how the manner of Darnell's upbringing almost destroys her humanity. Why Falcone and McCarthy chose such low-hanging fruit is a problem we didn't see in Spy. That movie worked because they gave Susan Cooper a voice and reason for wanting to be a spy. Here, Darnell is just a crass businesswoman with no layers beyond that. When she eventually realizes that she wants close emotional relationships, it feels entirely forced. Such sentimentality is only used when Falcone thinks it's to his advantage, reminding me of Darnell's rather cutthroat character. Add emotion here, followed by hugs, and the eventual quip.

Hidden somewhere deep inside The Boss is a good dramedy of family and how the choices we make can sometimes pile up on themselves. Sadly, this raunch-fest ruins any chance for that story to emerge, opting for the low-hanging fruit of blowjobs, bad breath, fondling, and odd midget sexuality. Watch Spy again and treat this like one of Darnell's brownies: packaged, shipped, and ultimately forgotten.

The Boss is Rated R for sexual content, language and brief drug use and has a runtime of 99 minutes.

Is Ryan Reynolds Joining The Rosie Project?

First it was developing with Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, until they defected to Han Solo. Then Richard Linklater was attached with Jennifer Lawrence set to star, but both dropped out last October. So now it's all change again for The Rosie Project, and this time it's Ryan Reynolds taking an interest.

The Rosie Project is based on the novel by Graeme Simsion (although Simsion actually wrote it as a screenplay before he turned it into a book). It's the story of professor Don Tillman, an on-the-spectrum genetics expert who never seems to be able to land a second date. He starts The Wife Project, working up a questionnaire to find the perfect partner, but is instead entranced by the free-spirited Rosie, who matches none of his criteria but might just be his soul mate.

The book has been a bestseller both here and in Australia where it's set, and a sequel, The Rosie Effect, arrived last year. (500) Days Of Summer writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber wrote the most recent draft of the script, which attracted Lord and Miller before the lure of Star Wars took them in another direction.

Reynolds isn't officially attached at this point, but is reportedly "circling" the project, which is being set up at Sony. He's already ensconced in a big Sony project, heading to Mars with Jake Gyllenhaal in his Safe House director Daniel Espinosa's Life.

While Sony may be keen to keep him in house, however, Reynolds' priority before any Rosie Project-ing will be back at Fox for Deadpool 2. Deadpool is now officially the biggest R-rated movie of all time, so everyone is keen to keep striking while that iron's hot.

Charlize Theron Joins Fast 8

Though she had only been in talks up to this point, waiting to see a finished script, Charlize Theron has officially signed on to play the big bad going up against Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto in Fast 8.

Theron will actually be playing in the new Fast & Furious entry, and rumors had pinned her as a potential new member of the nasty Shaw family (previous siblings including Luke Evans' Owen and Jason Statham's Deckard). But it sounds like she's just going to be a powerful, dangerous woman who has great influence in the criminal underworld. It would be fun to see the new movie shot almost completely from her point of view, a la Mad Max: Fury Road, but that probably won't work in terms of the Fast films' usual focus.

Diesel is back of course alongside Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and the rest of the current cast, and some filming has already commenced, though largely limited to second unit stunt work so far. The film, directed by F. Gary Gray will be shooting in Iceland, New York and Atlanta with talk persisting that it'll also be among the first American films to shoot in Cuba since the US trade embargo on the country was lifted.

#THEJUNGLEBOOK Featurette “Voices of the Jungle"

Check out this brand new “Voices of the Jungle" featurette showcasing THE JUNGLE BOOK cast, including Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson, Giancarlo Esposito, Neel Sethi, Christopher Walken and director Jon Favreau.



THE JUNGLE BOOK is in theaters April 15, 2016!

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.

Movie Review: Everybody Wants Some!!


You’ll want some too.

Review by Brandon Wolfe

Starting with his 1991 debut film Slacker, Richard Linklater has made slice-of-life moviemaking his stock in trade. From the grad-night exploits of Dazed and Confused to the long-term relationship examination of the Before... trilogy to the meticulous analysis of an entire childhood in Boyhood (the true best film of 2014, Birdman be damned), Linklater is less interested in plot mechanics and narrative strictures than he is with simple human interaction and small yet defining life moments. His films often have a free-floating hangout vibe, content as he is to simply spend time with his characters and relish in their musings and connections. His movies feel like relaxed afternoons with friends rather than capital-C cinema.

Dubbed by the director himself as a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some!! is another low-key Linklater soiree. As with its spiritual prequel, the film is a nostalgia-hued period piece (here, the early ‘80s rather than late ‘70s) focused on a pivotal transitional moment of youth, this time the onset of college as opposed to the end of high school. Our focal point is Jake (Blake Jenner), an incoming college freshman on a baseball scholarship who, at the outset, is just arriving at the dilapidated house he will share with his fellow teammates, none of whom exactly roll out the red carpet for him. Among them are the hyper-competitive McReynolds (Tyler Hoechlin), motor-mouthed Finnegan (Glen Powell), blissed-out hippie Willoughby (Wyatt Russell), cool and collected Dale (J. Quinton Johnson) and aggressive oddball Niles (Juston Street, rocking a Weird Al ‘stache). The smart, good-natured Jake spends the three days prior to the first day of classes getting to know this motley crew and quickly immersing himself in the freeing pleasures of the college experience.


And that’s basically it. In true Linklater fashion, Everybody Wants Some!! doesn’t hinge upon any conventional storytelling beats. There’s no evil dean, no rival factions, no plot to save a fraternity from banishment, no real conflict at all. The film is out to chronicle a youthful rite of passage, one rooted in a very specific moment in time while also simultaneously universal. Even the initial resistance Jake is met with by some of his teammates quickly dissipates into genial chop-busting camaraderie. Linklater isn’t interested in manufactured conflict so much as he is in capturing an experience from his own youth that is easily relatable for anyone who ever pursued higher education. So loose is Everybody Wants Some!! that time seems to have no meaning as you watch it. After an hour in the disarming company of these guys, it feels as though we have spent a real-time couple of days with them, in the best way. It’s common to describe a film or television series as feeling “like hanging out with friends,” but never has this descriptor felt more apt than it does here.

As with Dazed and Confused, Linklater has assembled a murderer’s row of stars of tomorrow. Jenner makes endearing what could have been a bland protagonist, and Zoey Deutsch as his theater-arts-major love interest is equally winning. Perhaps the standout among the cast is Powell, whose Finnegan is a goofball capable of surprising wisdom and depth. There is also fine comedic work from Street, who grounds a character who could have easily been left to wallow in cartoonishness, as well as Austen Amelio (who sort of resembles an emaciated Matthew McConaughey, keeping the spectre of Wooderson present) as the hilariously foolish Nesbit. If there is any problem with the cast, it’s that there are so many team members (16 in total) that it occasionally becomes difficult to pin down who everyone is. Yet the jovial ambiance fostered among the group is incredibly infectious, overriding any issues of overpopulation.


While Everybody Wants Some!! dovetails most neatly with Dazed and Confused, it also feels in some respects like a continuation of Linklater’s other works. The meet-cute snowballing quickly into real connection suggests a revisitation of the youthful amorousness of Before Sunrise and Jake’s swift indoctrination into college life essentially picks up right where we left Mason in Boyhood. The film doesn’t replicate the marbles-bouncing-off-each-other rhythms of Dazed, which splintered its own sprawling cast off into a cross-section of varied high school factions rather than focusing on a single group exclusively, as is the case here. Yet I would argue that the warm bonhomie of Everybody Wants Some!! is more engaging in its presentation of a surrogate band of brothers who may yank your chain relentlessly, but also provide a welcoming sense of community. In its portrayal of a collection of jocks, the film could have easily devolved into an unappealing display of bro-ish douchebaggery, yet this bunch is never less than likable. The convivial atmosphere of Everybody Wants Some!! represents the college experience that everyone should want, and can count themselves as lucky to have had.

Movie Review: Demolition


Gyllenhaal prevents tale of grieving from demolishing itself.

Review by Brandon Wolfe

On a seemingly unremarkable morning commute, Davis Mitchell (Jake Gyllenhaal) is sitting in the passenger seat half-listening to his wife Julia (Heather Lind) as she implores him to fix the leaky refrigerator back at home. This mundane scene from a marriage is violently upended by a deadly car accident, in which Julia is killed but Davis emerges unscathed. We immediately cut to the hospital where a disoriented Davis is still piecing together what has happened. Hungry, he goes to purchase a pack of M&Ms from a vending machine and watches helplessly as it dangles from its hook, unattainable. He takes a picture of the vending machine’s posted contact information. He’s not done with this.

This action, which opens Demolition, represents the most agency Davis displays during this time of crisis. He is almost unnervingly emotionless about the loss of his wife. He tries to force tears in the bathroom during Julia’s funeral, but they do not materialize. He attempts to immediately resume his work as a financial bigwig for his father-in-law Phil (Chris Cooper) as though nothing has transpired. The only outpouring of anything comes in the form of a series of stream-of-consciousness letters Davis writes to the vending machine company, where he overshares exuberantly, if dispassionately, about his life and frame of mind. In the weeks following the accident, Davis begins to display some curious behavior. He no longer appears to possess any self-awareness nor filter toward what he says and he takes up a destructive habit of dismantling and demolishing anything he can get his hands on.


Demolition is a hard nut to crack for the longest time. At first it seems like a portrait of a sociopath, a man utterly bereft of any true feeling or emotion. We spend the entire film locked into Davis’ frame of mind, experiencing everything through his cracked mindset, which makes it difficult for us to glean exactly what is going on with the guy from moment to moment, since he himself never seems to know. For a time, there’s uncomfortable humor in watching this guy steamroll haphazardly through life, no longer even thinking to behave like a rational, tactful human being. At first, much of Davis’ strangeness is excused by others due to the horrific loss he has just endured, but as his demeanor grows progressively odder, that slack stops being cut. As a character study of a man losing his connection to reality, the film is compelling.

Yet Demolition grows increasingly disjointed, and that disjointedness ultimately begins to snowball exponentially as the film keeps rolling along. Davis’ letters end up profoundly touching the vending machine company’s customer service representative, Karen Moreno (Naomi Watts), who makes the unprofessional decision to reach out to their author. Davis becomes fixated on meeting this mystery woman, whose life is out of sorts, with a delinquent son Chris (Judah Lewis) she can’t begin to control, an ill-advised affair with her boss and a near-constant penchant for smoking weed.


It’s with this development that Demolition loses its grip the most. The film doesn’t seem to know how to integrate these characters into the mix in any organic way. Despite Watts’ best efforts, her character never really registers. Davis ends up bonding with Chris, emerging as the precise worst male role model an already troubled kid could have. Again, there are squirmy laughs to be had here, such as Davis instructing Chris to shoot him in his bulletproof-vest-covered chest or enlisting the boy to help him demolish his lush, expensive home, but the film simply doesn’t get across how these characters fit into his orbit. An 11th-hour tragedy feels especially tacked on.

Gyllenhaal, unsurprisingly, is Demolition’s MVP. Similar to his character in 2014’s grossly underrated Nightcrawler, the actor is at his best embodying a character whose bubble is well off-center. He has emerged as one of the best actors currently working and this is yet another magnetic performance for his resume. It’s just hard to accept how little Demolition amounts to after such an engaging first half. The film is ultimately about the grieving process, which is the most obvious road this story could have taken after seeming, for the longest time, to be building to something much stranger and more intriguing with its protagonist. The button on Davis’ journey is so saccharine that it’s difficult to square it with the more dangerous and uneasy places the character’s journey seemed to be headed earlier on. The film ultimately comes off as something of a riff on American Beauty, right down to the severe presence of Cooper, when it feels like the potential was present for something more than that. Demolition is a worthwhile effort overall, but the true grief to be found is for the real wild card of a film that it seemed so close to being.

Red Band Trailer For #Neighbors2 Sorority Rising

Returning stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are joined by Chloë Grace Moretz for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the follow-up to 2014’s most popular original comedy. Nicholas Stoller again directs in a film that follows what happens when the will of parenthood goes against the bonds of sisterhood.



Now that Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.

Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. When Shelby (Moretz) and her sisters, Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein), find the perfect place just off campus, they won’t let the fact that it’s located on a quiet street stand in their way of parties as epic as the guys throw.

Forced to turn to the one ex-neighbor with the skills to bring down the new Greeks next door, the Radners—alongside best friends Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz) and Paula (Carla Gallo)—bring in charismatic Teddy as their secret weapon. If he can infiltrate the sorority and charm his way through it, the thirtysomethings will shutter the Kappas’ home. But if they think that their neighbors are going down without a fight, they have severely underestimated the power of youthful ingenuity and straight-up crazy. www.neighbors-movie.com

Blu-ray Review: STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS

RAMA is back and this time he reviews Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The force is strong with this one. The best 'Star Wars' movie since 'The Empire Strikes Back'

I can’t thank Disney and Lucasfilm enough for sending me this advance copy of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Blu-Ray. I was geekin’ out like a fat kid on a buffet line when I received this copy in the mail, it was like Christmas in Spring, it was like having my birthday party all over again, there’s no better way than that to describe such joy. The box art cover alone looks so pretty, it’s hypnotic, I can’t keep my eyes off of it, this blending of the old original generation with the new is just as thrilling as the movie itself. Now, the Blu-Ray, contains so many bonus features, I’m going to talk about some of them here, but heads up, it may be spoilery.

Let’s talk quickly about the film first and if you recalled my review back in December, I made it clear that although I understand fans’ criticism about it being more or less a rehash of “Star Wars: A New Hope,” because of the countless similarities not to mention a bigger form of death star, and I totally understand it, but again, what a relief to have this all nostalgia stuff considering the bitter aftertaste that the prequels left in our mouths all these years. The prequels were such a drag, they were essentially political thrillers with no element of fun, and so for J.J. Abrams to bring that fun back from the old original films, just feels o so good. We badly needed it, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS reminds us of what we love about this franchise. And you see Han Solo, Leia, and Luke along with the new characters like Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren, this is the perfect way of handing the baton to the next generation; moving the story forward while keeping that excitement intact. And much of that is explained in the Blu-Ray’s bonus features, now once again, the following contains SPOILERS

The “Secrets Of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey” segment is more than an hour’s long featurette that comes in four chapters, and it chronicles the journey of this project from the very beginning which includes Lucasfilm’s decision to hire J.J. Abrams. Some of the fascinating points I notice is that they decided to hand the script from Michael Arndt to J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan solely because Michael Arndt, though he is a master storyteller, usually takes a couple of years, that’s just the way he works, but Lucasfilm had a timetable and they needed the script done a bit faster. Bringing in Kasdan was I think a wise move on their part, this is a man who’s had history with this franchise, if anybody knows how to move the saga forward, it’s Kasdan. And what can I say about J.J. Abrams that hasn’t been already said about him, the man knows how to revitalize a franchise, he did it with “Mission Impossible,” he did it with “Star Trek” and now he did it with “Star Wars,” he knows how to jumpstart a franchise for new audiences.

This featurette also gives you tons of behind-the-scenes including audition videos for John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. Ridley in particular, one of the big reasons why Abrams chose her was because she could basically cry on cue, and she could do it again and again if she had to. What a talent for such a young age to be able to easily tap into and unlock those emotions whenever she wants to. Another thing to admire about the casting choices is that I think it’s very diverse, with the inclusion of Oscar Isaac as well, but even more than that, they were willing to take the risk of putting a female, an unknown actress, as the lead hero, it goes to show you the faith the filmmakers had in Ridley and in the story.

The third and fourth chapter of that featurette is where things get really spoilery, so it’s best to not watch the bonus features before you watch the film, because those chapters deal with what happened to the original three (Han Solo, Leia, and Luke) leading up to Han Solo’s ultimate fate. At one point, Harrison Ford told an interviewer that it was necessary for the story, it seems that Ford was at peace with that decision. And then it cut to the final shooting day for Harrison Ford, J.J. Abrams and cast and crew applauded the legendary actor and gave him endless hugs.

“The Table Read” segment shows you the cast members reflect on when they first came together to read the movie’s script. What I would give to have been there, it must’ve been an incredible mind-blowing experience for Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, and John Boyega to be in the same room with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, I wouldn’t have been able to get over it for days. “Building BB-8” of course is about the new adorable droid, he’s more mobile, more agile than R2D2 and C3PO combined although we can never bring ourselves to forget about the two icons, but BB-8 was the film’s ultimate scene stealer. It made every kid on earth wishing they had their own BB-8 to play with. The “Crafting Creatures,” “ILM: The Visual Magic Of The Force,” and “Blueprint of a Battle” give you the technical and the choreography aspects. STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is not nostalgic only in terms of its casts and its story, but also the fact that J.J. Abrams and his crew chose to use as much practical effects as they could and the would fill in the gaps with CG and the performance capture and the digital magic. So these featurettes somewhat let you in on where the practical effects ended and where the CG began.

I was one of those who was confused when John Williams got Oscar-nominated for scoring STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Don’t get me wrong, Williams is a legend and I will forever admire him but I thought that spot would’ve gone to another composer whose film may not be a sequel or whose music was not built on already existing material, but the “John Williams: The Seventh Symphony” bonus feature segment proved me wrong. Clearly maestro Williams, even at his age, is still able to come up with new, refreshing themes for such characters as Rey and Kylo Ren, yes the overall music is familiar but Williams knew how to add something more, just kind of like what J.J. Abrams’ was trying to accomplish with Maz Kanata’s bar, it was their trying to have cantina without having cantina, if that makes sense at all. That sense of familiarity when it’s actually new at the same time, that is what I think John Williams did with his score for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. The other segments are the ‘Force For Change” which is for a good cause and a few deleted scenes that when you watch them, you'd understand why they got left in the cutting room floor, mainly because they were unnecessary, they didn’t add or take away anything from the story or the characters.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWKANS is available on NOW. If you’re a Star Wars fan, I don’t need to tell you how imperative it is to have this as part of your collection, unless you’d want to wait till EPISODE VIII and EPISODE IX Blu-Rays arrive so you can own whatever ultimate collector’s edition they’ll unleash then, but I’m not that patient.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger Coming To Freeform

Variety is reporting Freeform is venturing into the Marvel universe.

The younger-skewing Disney-owned network has greenlit “Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger” with a straight-to-series order.

Described as a superhero love story, “Cloak and Dagger” is based on the titular comic book duo (also known as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson) who have appeared in Marvel Comics classics, including “Spiderman” and “X-Men” stories.

The live-action interracial romance follows the duo, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love — Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.

No writer has been attached to the series, but the search is currently under way. Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios will co-produce.

The characters’ story is targeted toward young adults, making “Cloak and Dagger” a seamless fit for Freeform (previously ABC Family) whose target audience is “Becomers,” the 14-34 demo.

Marking the network’s first-ever Marvel series, Freeform is following in the footsteps of big sister net ABC, which has a slew of Marvel properties on its slate including “Agents of SHIELD” and “Agent Carter,” plus Mockingbird spinoff “Marvel’s Most Wanted” and a top-secret Marvel project from John Ridley in development. Getting Freeform into the Marvel game is a smart move for Disney-ABC, as the cable network is held to lower ratings standards than a big broadcast network. (ABC has struggled with ratings for “Agent Carter,” which remains on the bubble in the wake of critical praise.)

Superhero fare is a new genre for Freeform, which recently pushed into fantasy fare with “Shadowhunters.” That drama was just renewed for a second season, and “Cloak and Dagger” will pair nicely with the saga series, broadening the net’s programming.

Poster For #Kingsman Sequel The Golden Circle

This month's issue of Empire features some exclusive glimpses at concept art for Kingsman sequel The Golden Circle and a chat with director Matthew Vaughn. He addressed the idea that Colin Firth's deceased agent and mentor Harry Hart wouldn't return, but the first poster for the film, tweeted by star Taron Egerton, would beg to differ. Or at least tease the idea...

Yes, while Vaughn could still all be leading us a merry chase (or should be checking his pant status as "on fire"), it's intriguing to think what this means for the new movie.

The new movie will definitely see the return of Egerton's former wide boy Eggsy and stalwart quartermaster Merlin (Mark Strong), with the addition of some new international flavour in the shape of American counterparts known as the Statesmen.

They'll be represented by swaggering cowboy-style character Jack (yet to be cast) and Halle Berry's Ginger. And they'll all need to work together to battle Julianne Moore's villain, a woman named Poppy.
