The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Movie Review: #Arrival

The brainy and beautiful Arrival is also a powerful cinematic experience.
Review by Matt Cummings
WARNING: This review contains mild spoilers.
If the cinema year of 2016 has proven one thing, it's that Hollywood still isn't afraid to let loose with an intelligent film while impaling us with big, dumb (and only sometimes enjoyable) action fare. Arrival is a triumph of modern film-making, a bold, intelligent tale that's far deeper than the trailers might suggest, and immediately establishes itself as one of a handful of must-see films this Fall.

Linguistic Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is summoned to one of 12 landing sites throughout the world to decode messages by an alien species she lovingly refers to as Abbott and Costello. These gigantic multipeds utter a seemingly incomprehensible language, punctuated by a beautiful inky broken circular writing. These 12 massive crescent-shaped vessels stand elegantly on their sides, suspended by anti-gravity that allows Louise t…

#MarvelCollectorCorps Review: October 2016

Our (once again) late arrival of Marvel Collector Corps' DOCTOR STRANGE box shows the sub's best and worst faces.
Review by Matt Cummings
Funko's Marvel Collector Corps was once the top of the heap of sub boxes. But with the disastrous Marvel Stupor Box and August's less-than-awesome Spider-man, we're beginning to look elsewhere. This month's Doctor Strange box is no different, at once displaying Funko's best and worst faces as we consider our future investment.

The Promise
Before we begin, let's look at the original deal and MCC's current offering: promising a value of $50, regular boxes would keep the "fluff" (their words) to a minimum with Funko partnering each time to deliver an exclusive figure. Regardless if you joined at the Founders level or took on a per-box delivery, the Year One box was offered for an additional cost of $135 after tax. That's approximately the price of 4 regular boxes. Founders (like myself) were offer…

The Edge of Seventeen Premiere Images & Footage #EdgeOf17

The Edge of Seventeen is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club - an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it's like to grow up as a young woman in today's modern world.


See all the images and footage after the Jump...













Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson)

All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.

The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine's well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine's History teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.

The Edge of Seventeen marks the feature film directorial debut of writer-direct…

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets Trailer

Rooted in the classic graphic novel series, Valerian and Laureline- visionary writer/director Luc Besson advances this iconic source material into a contemporary, unique and epic science fiction saga.

Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe. Valerian has more in mind than a professional relationship with his partner- blatantly chasing after her with propositions of romance. But his extensive history with women, and her traditional values, drive Laureline to continuously rebuff him.



Under directive from their Commander (Clive Owen), Valerian and Laureline embark on a mission to the breathtaking intergalactic city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis comprised of thousands of different species from all four corners of the universe. Alpha's seventeen million inhabitants have converged over time- uniting their talents, technology and resources for …

Dumbledore Will Return In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Sequel

Given that Albus Dumbledore – future headmaster of Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry – is alive and kicking during New Scamander's (Eddie Redmayne) time and is mentioned in one of the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them trailers, it won't surprise you to learn that director David Yates has confirmed we'll meet the younger Dumbledore in the sequel to the new movie.

"In the second movie Dumbledore comes back. He’s got a couple of good scenes with Newt…" Yates said at a roundtable for the film attended by Screen Rant. "We’re discussing who would play Dumbledore, any suggestions would be good!" Though the late Richard Harris and then Michael Gambon played the character in the Harry Potter movies, the Fantastic Beasts will be looking for someone to take on the mantle of the younger Dumbledore. Tough gig...

And with rumors continuing to swirl that Johnny Depp - who has reportedly been cast in the sequel – could be playing the nefarious Gellert Gr…

The Big Bang Theory "Sheldon" Spinoff In The Works

Variety is reporting Warner Bros. TV and CBS are in the early stages of developing a spinoff of “The Big Bang Theory” that would revolve around the Sheldon Cooper character as a youth.

Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon on the flagship series, is attached to executive produce the spinoff along with Chuck Lorre and “Big Bang” showrunner Steve Molaro. “Big Bang” co-creator/exec producer Bill Prady is likely to be on board as an exec producer as well.

Molaro will write the script focusing on Sheldon, the idiosyncratic and neurotic genius, as a youth growing up in Texas. The character’s colorful family and formative years in the Lone Star state have often been referenced on “Big Bang Theory.” Laurie Metcalf earned an Emmy nomination this year for her recurring guest star role as Sheldon’s mother, Mary Cooper.

CBS and Warner Bros. TV declined to comment.

“Big Bang Theory” is television’s top comedy, a major feat for a show in its 10th season. Warner Bros. and CBS are expected to begin discussio…
