First Look At The Chrome Trooper From Episode VII

indierevolver sources have provided them with a second concept image of the new Chrome Trooper . For months, there have been reports of chromed stormtroopers in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII , but those closest to the production have been extremely tight-lipped in regards to this new variant. We’re finally seeing our first glimpses of this new armor’s look: It’s refreshing to see that he’s not simply a shiny black metal version of the standard-issue Episode VII Stormtrooper. While the overall contours are again in line with the classic design, this helmet has clearly evolved on a different path. Rather than squared tubes along the cheeks, the bottom of this helmet flares out into a fairly sharp-edged arc. Where those contours end at the front of the helmet, there does not appear to be an aerator or vent on either side. Once again, we see the appearance of a connected band across the eyes. This is a complex shape, flaring downward at the cheeks and back up toward

Fantastic Four Reboot Details On Johnny Storm & Sue Storm

One of the most interesting films set to come out next year is the new Fantastic Four reboot with Josh Trank directing and a main cast filled with some of the better up and coming actors working today. There isn’t really a lot known about the film yet, with only rumors and some set photos leaking online the past few months and Trank making a few statements about the tone the film will have. I’m really excited for it honestly, and with the talent involved, I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being one of the best and most interesting superhero films we end up getting. Schmoes Know got our hands on some new interesting plot details for the film from a very reliable source! First, remember all of the controversy that happened when Michael B. Jordan was announced to be cast as Johnny Storm in the film? For those of you that don’t know, in the comic books Johnny Storm and Sue Storm are brother and sister, and since Sue Storm is being played by Kate Mara in the film, people w

Guardians Of The Galaxy On Blu-ray December 9th

Marvel's runaway smash hit, Guardians of the Galaxy , grossed over $314M domestic and $633M worldwide making it the highest grossing domestic film of the year and the 7th highest grossing film worldwide. The film, which was perceived as a risk initially, also managed to win over both critics and fans putting another tick in the win column for Marvel. Even though Marvel has yet to make an official announcement, Amazon has made the film available for pre-order in three editions: a standard one-disc 2D Blu-ray, a two-disc 3D Blu-ray combo, and a one-disc DVD. The film is also expected to arrive on a Best Buy Exclusive Steelbook, similiar to Captain America: The Winter Soldier & Thor: The Dark World. Release date December 9th. Please Leave A Comment-

“Rogue Cut” Of “Days Of Future Past” Coming In 2015

Anna Paquin’s scenes as Rogue that were cut from “ X-Men: Days of Future Past ” will be added back to the film and re-released as the “ Rogue Cut ” next summer on homevideo platforms. The extended version of “ Days of Future Past ” will become available in the first half of 2015, most likely during the summer, according to the film’s writer and producer Simon Kinberg, who made the announcement Thursday from Stage 21, where scenes for the previous “X-Men” installment, “First Class” were filmed on the Twentieth Century Fox studio lot. Kinberg, who also worked on that film, was back on the lot to promote the theatrical version of “Days of Future Past,” available now on digital and on Oct. 14 on DVD and Blu-ray. More than 10 minutes of extra footage will be added to the “Rogue Cut” of “Days of Future Past,” which in addition to Paquin’s cut scenes, will also include other sequences involving other characters, as well. “It’s a big chunk, a substantial part of the movie,” Kinberg


We take a look at the first episode for the ABC series. TV Recap: FOREVER "LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP" By: Suepafly After a quick recap of Henry's never ending condition the episode opens with a frantic woman in a cab. She pleads with the person on the phone to wait, begging him not to do anything rash. She spots something on the bridge and forces the cab driver to stop as she opens the door in traffic. She runs from the cab and climbs over the guard rail, leaping off to her screaming death. Her body washes up on shore. Henry's first patient has an axe stuck in his head. The detectives think it to be a homicide,but Henry has another story. The drunk soccer fan tried to cut a branch interfering with his connection, fell from the ladder, and the axe fell from the roof killing him. The woman jumper however, Henry concludes is a suicide. He's never seen a jumper with fractures as hers, she was facing the wrong way and there was a good deal of lead paint benea

Predestination Has Arrived

The first promo for the Spieirg Brothers' time-travelling sci-fi Predestination arrived a couple of months ago, and now here's a second to pique your paradoxical interest. Appropriately the marketing campaign seems to be running backwards, since this new clip is a far more teaser-ish affair than the longer first glimpse. Not much there that wasn't revealed first time around, but interestingly there's far less footage of Australian actress Sarah Snook , who takes much of the acting weight as Ethan Hawke 's new partner. There's a bigger emphasis on a surgical procedure too. If you've read Robert Heinlein's short story All You Zombies , on which Predestination is based, you might glean some of what might be going on, and why some things are better kept secret before a full viewing. Nothing to do with lumbering undead (the title is lifted from a quote towards the end of the story), it's a mind-boggling catalogue of time travel paradoxes. We can

New Trailer For #JupiterAscending

There were worries aplenty when the announcement came that the Wachowskis’ latest sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending would be moving back to next February. And while we’ll have to wait until then to see if those fears were warranted, the latest trailer has arrived. Jupiter Ascending focuses on Mila Kunis ’ Jupiter Jones, a young woman who was born with signs predicting great things. But as an adult, a series of bad breaks have led to her gig cleaning other people’s houses. Then Caine ( Channing Tatum ) comes a-calling, rescuing her when some very nasty medical types discover who she really is and attempt to terminate her. Swept up into a huge struggle for the future of the solar system and our world in particular, Jupiter learns that she’s in line to be the owner of the Earth as part of a complicated hierarchy that stretches between the stars. Sadly for our heroine, some very powerful and dangerous people are also laying claim to her birthright. The new trailer has some extra shots o

X-Men Viral Websites Are Online Now

With X-Men: Days Of Future Past due on Blu-ray next month and the details for X-Men: Apocalypse beginning to crystallise, what better time for 20th Century Fox to sneak a couple of new viral websites for the mutant franchise online? Take a look at, and prepare to try to unravel the mysteries of, the Tandem Initiative and M-Underground . Tandem is advertising itself as a scientific think tank, which, according to its spiel, was “founded to help explore a new and growing generation: the genetically gifted.” The site offers mutants a chance to submit their stories and win free genotyping analysis, which makes us think they’re almost certainly up to no good. It’s a view shared by M-Underground , whose stated ambitions include “to expose those who wish to create a rift between humans and the genetically gifted. We will not let our world be torn apart with misinformation. The only ‘mutant threat’ is that which threatens mutants.” So… yeah, the two sides in this particular conflict

Open Forum Friday: September 26, 2014

We celebrate the release of The Equalizer with a great Open Forum question. To celebrate the release of The Equalizer (you can read our review here) this week, we want to know what television show from your youth you'd like to see turned into a movie. And, would you be OK if that film borrowed only the bare minimum from the original - perhaps the title and a couple of characters? While you're welcome to comment on this question or on any movie or television thoughts you might have, a friendly reminder to keep it nice, no ads, and no flaming. Happy posting!

Interview With David Cooley. He Talks About His Upcoming Film The Wolves Of Savin Hill

Childhood friends from the streets of Boston drift apart following a shocking discovery deep in the woods of Savin Hill . Years later a tragic murder brings them together again. But for one man, it’s no mistake. A trap has been set… We had a chance to talk to actor  David Cooley  and he takes us on a tour of  The Wolves of Savin Hill . Clearly, the film is an ensemble piece, but you’re front row centre for most of the movie. Do you feel the pressure, knowing you’re such a huge part of the film and a lot of it is riding on your performance and the audience’s acceptance of it? Not while making it no. John and Sean & I talked a lot about who my character was and what his motivations were. I really felt like I knew him. I knew his secrets and his potential violence and his rage. Once we were finished however, well that’s a horse of a different color. NOW, yes I fell it. I am not a big fan of watching my own performance, I tend to be a pretty harsh critic. But also I so

TV Review: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Shadows”

TV Review: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Shadows” By: Brandon Wolfe ‘ Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ’ was one of the biggest disappointments of the previous year. Heading into the fall TV season last year, it seemed like the show to beat. Bringing Marvel’s cinematic hot streak to the small screen, under the (partial) guidance of brilliant TV impresario Joss Whedon and employing fan-favorite Clark Gregg to anchor the series as the beloved, revived Agent Coulson, ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ appeared to have everything going for it. Then it aired and the balloon of hope immediately burst. In place of the intelligence and personality we had grown accustomed to with Marvel’s cinematic universe, ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ was a dull slog, less an expansion of the Marvel experience into broadcast television than some cheap junk-TV adventure show that seemed more at home airing on a Saturday afternoon in 1994. The chintzy production values, the blandly attractive leads, the plodding dialogu

The Equalizer Review: Old Meets New in a Viciously Delicious Throwdown

The Equalizer is the most visceral, stylish, and rewarding experience in quite awhile. Summer movies, take note. As we've been talking about this week , the 80's drama/action television program The Equalizer is getting the full-on movie treatment, courtesy of a duo of heavy hitters: Director Antoine Fuqua and his Training Day leading man Denzel Washington. For those of us who thrilled to the weekly exploits of former Company spy Robert McCall saving New Yorkers in trouble, the thought of a movie version has obviously piqued our interests. And while there's very little comparison here to the original, moviegoers are in for a violent and ultimately rewarding experience. Robert McCall (Washington) is a thoughtful, well-read middle-aged gentlemen working at a local hardware supply store, his life falling into neat patterns of cleanliness and a spartan-like behavior. But deep inside, McCall is holding back a violent past that saw him fake his own death in order t

The support of her weekly writers group, Authors Anonymous, turns to resentment. Colette Mooney receives rejection letters galore from agents and publishers.

Henry Obert has writer's block, as well as a huge crush on Hannah, while a Tom Clancy wanna-be, John K.

#Blackhat Trailer Starring #ChrisHemsworth Is Here

Here is the first trailer for Blackhat . Hemsworth stars as Nicholas Hathaway, a furloughed hacker convict recruited by a mixture of American and Chinese law enforcement officials as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta. And though the network initially seems to be intent on damaging financial institutions, Hemsworth and co quickly discover that the stakes are much, much higher than that. It’s all shot in Mann’s trademark style and promises lots of Mr. Thor running around being an action hero. Plus the likes of Viola Davis, John Ortiz, Holt McCallany, Spencer Garret, Archie Kao and Wei Tang in the cast.

The Equalizer Movie - What We Know (Conclusion)

Our Equalizer introduction wraps up with the episodes you must watch before seeing the movie. Our discussion of all things The Equalizer concludes with a look at some of the best episodes of the series. As audiences prepare to see Director Antoine Fuqua's vision for the 1980's iconic television series The Equalizer , all this week we're looking back at the characters, episodes, and other aspects of the show that helped to define it. In our final article, we'll discuss several memorable episodes, and explain how some of their themes could fit into the film's storyline. The Equalizer originally aired on CBS from 1985-1989 and was part of a series of new dramatic offerings that looked inside the world of spycraft and beyond the stylized Roger Moore James Bond movies. While shows like Scarecrow and Mrs. King used spies as a means to drive the romantic storyline, The Equalizer took a darker path, emphasizing the personal cost our heroes pay for defending o
