Cher Joins Mamma Mia Sequel

Kiefer Sutherland To Star In Flatliners Remake

Well, at least he knows something about the crazy science: though the reboot of 1990's thriller Flatliners has to this point been lining up a new cast that includes Ellen Page and Diego Luna, Deadline reports that one of the original actors will be popping by in some capacity. Kiefer Sutherland is that actor.

The 1990 film saw the likes of Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon and William Baldwin as medical students causing themselves all kinds of surreal mental anguish with their ill-advised near-death experiments. Purposely stopping their hearts to discover what might be on the Other Side seems like a good idea, but they end up with some paranormal consequences and have to face their own dark pasts.

Quite how the new version – which Niels Arden Oplev is scheduled to start directing in the next couple of days – will tweak that story has yet to be revealed, but the cast including Page, Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemens (and, assuming he finds time in his schedul…

Alicia Vikander's Tomb Raider Has A Release Date

Action adventure will follow a young Lara Croft.

According to The Wrap the upcoming “Tomb Raider” movie is set to be released on March 16, 2018, MGM and Warner Bros.

Alicia Vikander was cast as Lara Croft in late April, shortly after she took home an Oscar for her performance in “The Danish Girl.” The film is something of an origin story, which will follow a young and untested Lara Croft as she fights to survive her first adventure.

“Tomb Raider” is being produced by MGM and Warner Bros., which acquired the rights from GK Films.

March 16, 2018, has long been the rumored release date for “The Flash,” so it’s now clear that Warner Bros. has other plans for that film.

The studio also announced on Thursday that the thriller “Unforgettable,” starring Katherine Heigl, will open in theaters on April 21, 2017.

Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”) is directing “Tomb Raider,” which is based on the popular Eidos video games that have sold over 35 million units worldwide.

Movie Review: #TheSecretLifeOfPets

The Secret Life of Pets is strangely familiar, but entirely adorable.
Review by Matt Cummings
As a pet owner and failed foster parent to three kittens (my wife and I actually kept all three), it goes without saying that my curiosity in The Secret Life of Pets went far above the cinematography, the animation, or really anything else. I just wanted to see what pets do - and think about - while their overlord oppressor goes to work. And while strangely familiar to the original Toy Story, this one more than makes up for it in cuteness and spectacular animation.

Among the hustle and bustle of New York City, the pets who reside with their owners are supposed to live docile, predictable lives: eat and sleep, repeat as necessary. But for Max (voiced by Louis C.K.), he's the king of his domain and apartment complex. He meets with a menagerie of other pets, including fat cat Katie (voiced by Ellie Kemper), and the Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate), who enjoys Spanish tele-novellas and h…

@FunkoDCLegion Review: July 2016

The first volley fired by DC looks strangely familiar.

Review by Matt Cummings
DC's Legion of Collectors box has established itself as a very good competitor to the flooded sub box market. Filled with an eerily similar Funko every-other-monthly, it's also grown to include awesome shirts. There have been some missed opportunities, but nothing so severe that caused me long-term worry. July's box all but removes any doubt, gifting us an impressive amount of Squad gear, while getting us ready for August's movie release.

The Promise Before we begin, let's look at the deal again: promising a value of $50, the sub continues the tradition of Funko partnering each time to deliver an exclusive figure and t-shirt without the fluff or filter (their words). Joining at the VIGILANTE MEMBERSHIP, members receive 6 boxes every year, with the promise of an exclusive themed collectible gift on the one-year anniversary of your annual membership pf $150 p sh/h.

Blu-ray Review: #Jarhead3

The Direct-to-Video release doesn't make a strong case for consideration.
Review by Matt Cummings

The Direct-to-Video release of Jarhead 3: The Siege is one example of why VOD and the secondary release market has a long way to go before anyone will pay attention. First, it's highly likely that few people ever watched the sequel to the quite good 2005 flick with Jake Gyllenhall - who ran as far away from this franchise as he could - which tells you right there what we're talking about. Jarhead 3 is little more than a series hoping desperately to become a franchise, but utterly lacks the tools on which to built such dreams. And while it sounds good and looks OK, the story focusing on new marine Evan Albright (Charlie Weber) who struggles to maintain his identity in the Marine Corps while a long-thought-dead terrorist assaults an under-protected embassy - just isn't the Jarhead I remember. That was a thought-provoking film about what the military can do to its soldier…

Blu-ray Review: 'Green Room'

The brawling Green Room looks and sounds good in its home release.
Review by Brandon Wolfe and Matt Cummings
The independent bloodbath Green Room didn't make a lot of waves when it was released in theaters earlier this year. In fact, its paltry $3.2m haul might suggest that the film was barely worth the effort. However, those who take a chance here might be rewarded with one of the best films of 2016. The Blu-ray release makes a good case for your attention, with good video/audio but an incomplete set of supplements.

The Movie - 4/5
The Ain’t Rights, a punk band from D.C., are doing an unceremonious tour of the Pacific Northwest in their ramshackle van. The hard-luck quartet – Pat (Anton Yelchin), Sam (Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat), Reece (Joe Cole) and Tiger (Callum Turner) – find themselves playing sparsely populated gigs that net them a paltry $6 a man and are reduced to syphoning off gas to remain on the road. After a mohawked college DJ (David W. Thompson) takes pity…
