itemprop=”headline name”>G.I. Joe Might Be Rebooted Again For Transformers Crossover
Jul 26, 2021 10:49 am2021-07-26T10:49:12-05:00
Snake Eyes may have only opened domestically on Friday, and has barely even started rolling out internationally yet, but talk is already starting to churn in regards to another reboot. Even by the standards of the pandemic era, Paramount would have beento bring in over the weekend.
, and the general consensus from critics is that Henry Golding is destined for movie stardom and Andrew Koji almost steals the show, but they just needs to pick their projects a little better. We could end up living in a world where keeps getting rebooted in perpetuity over and over again, especially if Snake Eyes ends up being the third one-and-done effort in a row for the brand.
There’s still, but you’d have to imagine it could end up getting stripped of any potential connective tissue it may have had with Snake Eyes just in case. Should the worst happen and we get stuck with a never-ending churn of G.I. Joe despite audiences making it clear they don’t care, then that Transformers crossover would definitely be one way to generate some real interest.

Talk of Hasbro blowing a load on combining two of its most recognizable properties has been circulating for years, but it’s never felt particularly close to actually happening. That being said,, but then again, he’s produced every single installment in both franchises so he gets paid either way.
We can’t write Snake Eyes or G.I. Joe off until the international totals start rolling in, but if it does mark another failed roll of the dice, Transformers is about the only gamble left.
itemprop=”headline name”>The Walking Dead Season 10 Is Now Streaming On Netflix
Jul 26, 2021 10:31 am2021-07-26T10:31:58-05:00
Good news, TWD fans! Almost two years after it premiered,season 10 is finally available to stream on Netflix. Ordinarily, we would’ve have it go up on the platform a lot time ago, but due to the pandemic shuffling around AMC’s plans for the post-apocalyptic drama, season 10 only finished airing on network TV back in April. But now, fans can relive all 22 episodes of the most recent season of the show on Netflix in the US.
Those 22 episodes comprise the original 16 episodes that made up season 10, which aired across 2019 and 2020, and the six additional episodes that arrived in early 2021. Seasons 10A and B covered the second half of the Whisperer War, following on from season 9, encompassing the rise and fall of Alpha, Negan’s apparent betrayal and eventual return to the fold and the revenge of Beta. Not to mention Lauren Cohan’s big comeback as Maggie. Season 10C, meanwhile, acted as a bridge between seasons 10 and 11, consisting of smaller-scale stories that could be safely produced during the COVID outbreak.

Now is the perfect time for season 10 to land on Netflix as subscribers have about a month to binge these 22 episodes before season 11 kicks off in August. TWD‘s final run is set to be structured in a similar way to season 10. It’ll consist of 24 episodes, released in three batches of eight over the next year and a half. So we should prepare for that to take its sweet time in arriving on Netflix as well.
If you don’t have Netflix, season 10 can still be found on(login required), though it’s no longer available to stream on AMC Plus. AMC subscribers will get to catch The Walking Dead season 11 premiere a week early from August 15th, however. Otherwise, check the opening episode out when it hits network TV on August 22nd.
itemprop=”headline name”>Watch: Mark Hamill Reveals The Surprising Inspiration Behind His Skeletor
Jul 26, 2021 10:23 am2021-07-26T10:23:50-05:00
Having played Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ Star Wars trilogy, Mark Hamill’s enshrinement in the pantheons of popular culture was secured 40 years ago. However, the actor has been experiencing a new wave of popularity recently, thanks to a combination of his return for the conclusion to the Skywalker Saga, a winning social media personality and the fact he’s one of the all-time great voice actors.
Hamill had dabbled in voice work before, but it was his legendary turn as the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series that signaled that he was a force to be reckoned with in the recording booth. In the decades since he’s lent his vocal talents to a string of big name properties, cult favorites and legendary characters including Biker Mice From Mars, Spider-Man’s Hobgoblin, The Tick, Johnny Bravo, Family Guy, SpongeBob Squarepants, various Transformers shows and The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to name just a very small few, while he even played Wolverine in 2003 video game X2: Wolverine’s Revenge.
The 69 year-old can currently be heard having a ball as Skeletor in, the He-Man reboot from Kevin Smith that’s . As you can see in the clip below, Hamill reveals his surprising reference point for bringing out the softer side in the villain.
Mark Hamill () is a legend on the big screen, and even more legendary for his voice acting. Here's how he created Skeletor’s voice in MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATION.

It’s not often you see Tallulah Bankhead and Skeletor in the same sentence, with Golden Age legend famed for her eloquence, quick wit, flamboyant personality and a private life that always covered plenty of column inches.

itemprop=”headline name”>Halloween Kills Wanted Paul Rudd Back As Tommy Doyle
Jul 26, 2021 10:10 am2021-07-26T10:10:29-05:00
David Gordon Green’s reinvigoratedtrilogy may only be one movie old until the sequel finally arrives a year behind schedule in October, but it already looks to have set a new template for how major horror properties will be rebooted in the future.
It isn’t quite a clean slate for the long-running series, but it picks up from where John Carpenter’s classic 1978 original left off, ignoring everything else that came in between, even though. Such an approach allows the new set of films to tip their hat towards the mythology without getting bogged down in nostalgia, and it almost resulted in Paul Rudd making a surprising return to the fold as Tommy Doyle.
Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers was just Rudd’s second-ever big screen role after Clueless, and he played a grown up version of. Several familiar actors or characters have been integrated into Green’s Halloween so far, but Halloween Kills will see Anthony Michael Hall step in as Tommy.

To give you an idea of how immortal Paul Rudd really is, he’s less than a year younger than Hall, even though the latter was a 1980s teen idol thanks to his roles in National Lampoon’s Vacation, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Weird Science, so it’s not as strange a substitution as you might think.
Rudd was actually approached about making a comeback in Halloween Kills, but he had to politely decline. As great as it would have been to see the Ant-Man star running away from Michael Myers in 2021, we’re sure Hall will do a solid job as his replacement.
itemprop=”headline name”>Robert Kirkman Says The Walking Dead Rick Grimes Movies Are Still A Long Way Off
Jul 26, 2021 10:04 am2021-07-26T10:04:45-05:00
is about to go through some big changes. The upcoming Season 11 will be the finale of the core show, though the story will carry on in a number of spinoffs. One will , another will be an anthology series called , and and will continue. But one project fans are particularly hyped for is the feature film trilogy starring Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes.
Other than the fact that they appear to take place in and around Philadelphia, we don’t know much about these movies. World Beyond is confirmed to be setting up the story, which will center on the Civic Republic Military (also set to play a big role in Season 11) that captured Rick and begin to shed light on, and fans have theorized that the pics could see a vaccine being developed for the walker pathogen.
The trilogy sounds like a key part of the over-arching story, so fans have begun to grumble about the news blackout. Now, franchise creator Robert Kirkman has apologized to fans during his Q&A at the virtual Comic-Con:
“I wish that there were more updates. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes. It’s entirely possible that there are some details that are coming out around Comic-Con that I just don’t know we’re allowed to talk about yet, so I’m being a good boy and I’m not gonna spoil anything. But I will say there’s exciting stuff happening behind the scenes and I am as frustrated as you guys are that we have not been able to reveal everything to you and talk about it nonstop.”
When pressed for a release date, his response indicated that they’re not happening anytime soon:
“I could throw out a funny date. I don’t know. It’s definitely going to be before 2032. I wish there were more updates.”

That’s going to be disappointing for fans wanting to catch up with Rick as it seems the earliest we could see these is 2023. By that point Andrew Lincoln might not have appeared in The Walking Dead for five years, so we may be approaching a time when AMC either cancel or reformat this as a limited three-episode TV series.
In a further disquieting development, The Walking Dead‘s resident gore expert Greg Nicotero discussed the trilogy during Comic-Con and hinted that they don’t even have the story finalized:
“I’ve read a variety of drafts of the scripts over the last few months. They’re really making sure that they get it right.”
Let’s hope they do.
Season 11 of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC on August 22.
itemprop=”headline name”>Watch: Money Heist Part 5 Teaser Brings The Suspense
Jul 26, 2021 9:59 am2021-07-26T10:22:00-05:00
A newteaser showing The Professor chained up by Inspector Alicia Sierra is giving fans their first look at part-five of the internationally acclaimed show.
Money Heist has taken the world by storm since Netflix acquired the Spanish show’s streaming rights in 2017. Season four ended on a massive cliffhanger after The Professor was captured at gunpoint by Inspector Alicia, leaving his fate unknown.
The latest teaser trailer confirms The Professor is alive, but not exactly well. He is briefly seen chained and held captive by the Inspector, showing she is currently in control. Alicia previously blamed Colonel Tamayo and the Spanish government for torturing Río in a secret facility, resulting in her being fired and on the run. It’s not clear what she plans to do with The Professor, or how he will help her escape.
Part four was gut-wrenching for fans, as the crew came back together to pull off another heist to save Río. Nairobi, a fan favorite, who was brutally murdered by the escaped hostage Gandía. Fans worldwide are waiting for the rest of the thieves to get their revenge, and, hopefully, part five will provide the much-needed closure. Part five will also show how the remainder of the heist plays out. Will the entire band of thieves make it out alive?
Besides this short trailer, not much else is known about season five. The teaser confirmed a trailer is coming on August 2, meaning the show’s next installment is finally on the horizon.
itemprop=”headline name”>Paramount Reportedly Thinking Twice About Snake Eyes Sequel After Weak Opening
Jul 26, 2021 9:58 am2021-07-26T09:58:51-05:00
G.I. Joe fans were praying that Snake Eyes would be the first properly successful movie based on the classic franchise, but with the film’s release this weekend, it’s become clear that’s definitely not the case. On the back of weak reviews – it currently stands at just 42% on Rotten Tomatoes –also failed to , opening second to M. Night Shyamalan’s Old.
Paramount were confident about this one, having– also starring Henry Golding – last year. As its G.I. Joe Origins subtitle makes clear, the studio was also intending to create various spinoffs featuring other iconic characters going solo. But with Snake Eyes looking likely to cost them millions instead of earning them a sweet profit, we’re now hearing that Paramount is having second thoughts about continuing along this road.
Geekosity is reporting that Snake Eyes‘ weak opening has made the studio “think twice” about pressing ahead with this version of the G.I. Joe franchise. Obviously, with the film having literally just come out, they haven’t made a decision yet but any sequels are now said to be “up in the air”. They may decide to just go for it, then, and produce a follow-up, in the hopes that its financial performance will improve as the industry heals, or else they’ll decide to scrap plans and start again.
And if they do elect to go down this second route, Geekosity claims that the idea would be to do a G.I. Joe/Transformers crossover movie which would reboot the Joe characters again, without any connection to Snake Eyes. This project has been, with producer Lorenzo di Boneventura revealing he’s been trying to make it happen for years. However, Geekosity says it was Michael Bay who previously stopped it from getting greenlit.
If you’ve yet to check it out, Snake Eyes can be caught in theaters now and on Paramount Plus 45 days after its opening.
itemprop=”headline name”>Capcom Releases Official Resident Evil Perfumes For 25th Anniversary
Jul 26, 2021 9:54 am2021-07-26T09:54:37-05:00
No, you haven’t unknowingly traveled back in time to April 1st, Capcom’s latest attempt at celebrating the Resident Evil franchise’s 25th anniversary has resulted in the creation of a limited-edition line of perfumes. The publisher’s latest addition to its online store reveals three options in the range, all of which are scents based on characters from the games. In no particular order, Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy and Jill Valentine have received the honor (or dishonor, depending on your stance concerning video game merchandise) of having their musk bottled and distilled into a real-world odor, which we can only imagine smells like rotting corpses of the undead.
Truth be told, we’ve no way of learning how pleasant each is when it hits the nostrils, as currently, all three appear to be available only in Japan and join other, similar products based on other Capcom IP, including Phoenix Wright and Devil May Cry. On the off-chance you still don’t believe what you’re reading, check out the collection for yourselves in the gallery below.

This, let’s call it unique, venture follows a number of releases so far this year aimed at marking the survival horror’s quarter-century birthday bash, including the core video game series’ latest installment, Resident Evil Village. Having alreadysince its launch back in May, Netflix attempted to capitalize on Village‘s success earlier this month with the release of Infinite Darkness, an animated mini-series featuring the aforementioned Leon as well as Claire Redfield.
This will be followed at a later date with both a live-action adaptation starring Lance Reddick as the villainous Albert Wesker as well as a feature-length film reboot. The latter, directed by Johannes Roberts, is said to retell the events of the first three Resident Evil games and is scheduled to open in theaters on November 24th. Seefor all the latest details.
itemprop=”headline name”>When Does Baki: Son Of Ogre Come Out?
Jul 26, 2021 9:51 am2021-07-26T09:51:35-05:00
Right now,is one of the most popular anime series on Netflix. The series follows Baki Hanma, a teenage fighting expert as he grapples with the most dangerous fighters in the world. Baki offers some of the most impressive technical fight mechanics and graphic imagery in anime today, thanks in no small part to the creators’ love for underground fighting.
In 2018, Netflix breathed new life into the early 2000s anime franchise, which is based on the manga Baki the Grappler. While the streaming giant’s first entry into the franchise picks up following season two from 2001’s Baki the Grappler, the Netflix series’ events are only loosely connected to the original anime. So if you’re new, it isn’t integral to watch the earlier seasons.
Since being picked up by Netflix, there have been three seasons released to the platform, with 39 new episodes for fans to sink their teeth into. And more are coming soon, too: Netflix recently announced that 2021 will be bringing Baki fans a brand new season of the show, Baki: Son of Ogre.
So, when can fans expect it to launch?
When will Baki: Son of Ogre release?
Fans of the show will be happy to hear that season four, Baki: Son of Ogre, will be dropping in fall 2021. A specific date hasn’t been confirmed yet, meaning the anime could launch any time from late September to the tail end of December.
The fourth season’s trailer also teased some of the story for later this year, which will see Baki face off against his father: The Ogre himself.
Fans have been waiting for this event for the longest time. Netflix’s third season, “The Great Raitai Tournament Saga,” aired in 2020. With no firm date for a release and plenty of time before fall, you can still catch up on anything you may have missed within the series, or start watching entirely to be ready for Son of Ogre to launch.

Whether you’re new or just looking to refresh your memory on past events within the series, here is the order to take in everything Baki has to offer.

- Baki the Grappler: Maximum Tournament Saga (2001)

itemprop=”headline name”>Dead Space Remake Won’t Bring Back A Controversial Feature From The Third Game
Jul 26, 2021 9:47 am2021-07-26T09:47:49-05:00
Whilethat is getting a fully-fledged remake have been almost universally positive, many have nonetheless voiced concern over the potential return of a heavily criticized feature found in the series’ third (and currently most recent) entry. Released during a time when both co-op and microtransactions were experiencing massive surges in popularity and prevalence respectively, Dead Space 3‘s shoehorning in of both when neither previous installment contained them didn’t sit well with, well, anyone.
Those missteps, likely mandated by EA, would ultimately result in hastening the franchise’s fall from grace and the subsequent closure of the original developer, Visceral Games. It goes without saying, then, that a repeat of those mistakes is something the publisher, as well as Isaac Clarke’s adoptive caretaker, Motive Studio, are keen to avoid with any future installments.
There’s no guarantee, of course, that Dead Space 4 will ever come to fruition, but if it has any chance of materializing, making a good impression with the upcoming remake is critical to getting the green light for such a project. That being the case, Clarke’s next-gen revisit of the derelict USG Ishimura will be devoid of any and all microtransactions. Confirming the reassuring news to IGN in a recent interview, senior producer Phil Ducharme stated that the team has no intention of ever adding the option.
What’s more, Ducharme also teases that several adjustments to the first game’s story could be par for the course, though such amendments would only be made for the sake of continuity which Visceral may have left out due to not knowing if a sequel would ever get made.
The Dead Space remake is in development for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC. A release date has yet to be announced.

itemprop=”headline name”>Creepshow Panel Teases Gruesome New Monsters For Season 3
Jul 25, 2021 10:39 am2021-07-25T10:39:16-05:00
Shudder’s [email protected] yesterday with a panel about what fans can expect from Creepshow going forward.has been a consistently enjoyable show for the past few years, even managing to add some during its COVID-19-hit 2020 season. The second run of the horror series arrived in April this year, and the third will be out on September 23rd, 2021. Anticipation for the return of the cult hit was stoked at Amazon’s
Showrunner Greg Nicotero, writer Mattie Do, guest cast members Michael Rooker and James Remar, as well as director Rusty Cundieff, were on hand to discuss what they’ve been working on. Nicotero revealed that Cundieff is adapting Joe Hill’s short story “Mums”, which will star Ethan Embry. In addition, Do talked about their Rooker-centric segment “Drug Traffic”, and how it draws on Southeast Asian traditions for its monster:
“We have this monster, typically female, that becomes extremely hungry, so its head detaches from the body and its entrails and heart hang from its neck. It eats you.”

The [email protected] event also confirmed that there’ll be six episodes to stream on Shudder in September, and that Reid Scott, Johnathon Schaech, and Hannah Fierman are guesting. Since launching in 2019, Creepshow has stayed true to its origins in George A. Romero and Stephen King’s 1982 movie, as well as bringing in a host of horror filmmakers and stars for gruesome, practical special effects-led tales that make excellent use of the anthology format.
Particular highlights include King adaptation “Gray Matter”, David Bruckner’s memorable “The Man in the Suitcase”, andhomage “Public Television of the Dead”. We’ve also received an animated take on King’s grisly “Survivor Type”, and plenty of classic genre references. Given the success of Creepshow for Shudder, who committed to the new season , we can see the production continuing to be renewed for the immediate future.
All episodes of Creepshow released so far is available view on Shudder, while AMC will premiere the most recent run of stories on September 6th, ahead of the launch of the latest instalments by the horror platform on the 23rd.
itemprop=”headline name”>Why Does Kakashi Wear a Mask?
Jul 25, 2021 9:43 am2021-07-25T09:43:10-05:00
Naruto is one of the most popular manga and anime franchises of all time, with a sprawling story and a massive cast of characters spanning almost 20 years. One of the most consistently popular characters in fan polls was always Kakashi Hatake, the leader of shinobi Team Seven and sensei to the series’ main trio of young ninja, Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno.
Does Kakashi ever reveal his face?
One of the prevailing mysteries surrounding Kakashi is his appearance beneath his mask, and why he’s always concealing his face. As it turned out, Kakashi’s face wasn’t revealed until episode 469 of Naruto Shippuden (“A Special Mission”) which didn’t air in Japan until July of 2016.
In the episode, Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke decide to try and find out what Kakashi looks like under his mask as they’re left yearning for a challenge after finishing a mission early in the day. They team up with a photographer named Sukea to obtain Kakashi’s ninja registration photo from a secret document storage unit, but are caught in the act before they get a chance to see it.
Sukea next tries to capture a photo of Kakashi eating with his mask off, but in each photo he takes, there’s a different object or animal in the way of Kakashi’s face. The team next tries to collaborate with ninja from teams eight and ten to trick Kakashi into performing mouth to mouth on a drowning woman (secretly Naruto in disguise,) but Kakashi opts to take the woman to a hospital instead. On their way to the hospital the other ninja intercept them and try to use their justu to force Kakashi to remove his mask, failing in spectacular fashion.
Once Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura give up on their endeavor to see Kakashi’s face, Sukea returns home and reveals himself to have been a shadow clone of Kakashi all along. While Kakashi’s pupils may never get to see his face, the audience fortunately does, both after “Sukea” removes his disguise and as Kakashi muses to himself about the teamwork skills his squad is developing.
Why does Kakashi conceal his face?
Even though fans did eventually get a satisfactory answer about Kakashi’s appearance, the rationale behind his decision to conceal his face remains somewhat of an enigma to this day.
Some of the theories fans have circulated over the years include that Kakashi is hiding the shame he feels after the death of his father, while others have suggested it may just be that Masashi Kishimoto struggles to draw distinct faces with such a large cast of characters, and the main distinguishing feature for Kakashi is his mask. One particularly amusing theory is that Kakashi wears a mask to hide his nosebleeds, which are a common symbol of sexual arousal in anime, and would make some sense given that one of Kakashi’s main character traits is his love of racy literature.
itemprop=”headline name”>The Internet Praises Dior For Standing By Johnny Depp With New Ad
Jul 25, 2021 9:35 am2021-07-25T09:35:51-05:00
After the UK court ruled against Johnny Depp in his libel action against former wife Amber Heard and The Sun, the publication that had called him a “wife-beater,” the actor found himself in a difficult spot with Hollywood moguls.
As of now,the Fantastic Beasts movie series as a direct consequence of the verdict, not to mention that even the Mouse House is also keeping its distance at the moment, and considering where things stand, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll ask him back for future installments of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Still, in this messy legal feud that has caused much controversy on the internet, the talented thespian ; legions of innumerable fans that have continually supported him over the past year.
Currently, those fans are busy praising Dior for their bravery in standing by the actor because of the new Sauvage fragrance ad. The, titled “Sauvage – Game of Notes,” is basically a chat between Depp and perfumer François Demachy in a dimly lit room. The two creatives talk about their inspirations and at one point in the video, the actor strums his guitar. So, in essence, it’s pretty much everything you’d want to see from an advertisement featuring Johnny Depp.
A lot of fans are now celebrating the incident after many a tough month for their favorite actor, and here are some of the reactions they’ve been sharing on Twitter:
Just seen the newclip with and I just wanted to say a huge for standing by Johnny and not believing what the media is trying to push down our throats, but believing the evidence. You have chosen the right path. Thank you ♥️

itemprop=”headline name”>A Major Will Smith Sequel Is Reportedly Set To Begin Filming This Fall
Jul 25, 2021 9:33 am2021-07-25T09:33:57-05:00
The more Netflix’s roster of big budget properties continues to expand, the less likely the prospect ofbecomes. The history books will always remember David Ayer’s fantasy blockbuster as the streaming service’s first foray into big budget spectacle with an A-list star in the lead, but we’re fast approaching four years since the movie was released, and the second installment has failed to gather any serious momentum.
In fact, we haven’t had an official update on the project for well over twelve months since it was announced in May 2020 that The Incredible Hulk and Now You See Me‘s Louis Leterrier was in talks to step behind the camera, with The Maze Runner and Pacific Rim: Uprising‘s T.S. Nowlin brought on to polish the script written by Ayer and genre veteran Evan Spiliotopoulos.
Even then, the filmmaker hasn’t once spoken publicly about Bright 2, even though he’s become a Netflix regular having been involved in smash hit series Lupin and The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, while he alsoand shot French action comedy Tower of Strength earlier this year for the platform.
Insider Daniel Richtman claims that Bright 2 will be shooting later this year, though, but there isn’t any additional information provided that we haven’t heard before in terms of the talent involved. Will Smith is currently in the midst of production on Antoine Fuqua’s slavery drama Emancipation, which is scheduled to conclude in the fall, so it’s best to wait and see if any announcements are forthcoming from either Netflix, Leterrier or the former Fresh Prince before hedging your bets on cameras rolling before 2021 is out.
itemprop=”headline name”>Michael B. Jordan Rumored To Be Taking Over An Iconic Denzel Washington Role
Jul 25, 2021 9:31 am2021-07-25T09:31:08-05:00
Antoine Fuqua’shardly came burdened with a ton of franchise potential, as the filmmaker delivered a grim and gritty crime thriller that put writer David Ayer on the map and landed leading man Denzel Washington his second Academy Award win, and first for Best Actor.
It may have been 20 years since the movie was released,after being added to the content library a couple of months back, it’s still got the power to draw in a crowd. We already got a sequel via the Training Day TV series that took place fifteen years after the events of Fuqua’s film, but it was largely panned by critics and canceled after a single season.
In October 2019,, one which would focus on a younger Alonzo Harris in 1992, just days before the Rodney King riots. We’ve heard absolutely nothing official about the project since, though, but insider Daniel Richtman is now offering that not only is Fuqua returning behind the camera, but Michael B. Jordan is being eyed to inherit the lead role.
Jordan and Washington only just collaborated on the latter’s next directorial effort A Journal for Jordan, so maybe they struck up a Training Day conversation, but none of Richtman’s information has been verified or corroborated as of yet, so it’s best not to take it at face value for now.
Fuqua currently has Will Smith slavery drama Emancipation andin production, while as either star or producer Jordan is attached to Creed III, The Thomas Crown Affair, a potential Without Remorse sequel, Season 2 of Raising Dion, Static Shock and HBO Max’s Val-Zod Superman, so free time is at a premium for both.
itemprop=”headline name”>Sweet Tooth Reportedly Getting 2 More Seasons At Netflix
Jul 25, 2021 9:28 am2021-07-25T09:29:00-05:00
Fans have been waiting for almost two months to discover if Netflix fantasy serieswill be getting a second season, and while it hasn’t been announced quite yet, it’s looking to be a foregone conclusion after the platform announced the latest set of viewership numbers for several high profile projects.
The company only tends to disclose the data when the movie or series in question has been a massive success, and Sweet Tooth certainly falls into that category. The DC Comics adaptation drew in a reported 60 million streams in the first four weeks it was available, which was good enough to see it become, and it still takes eighth place on the all-time list once France’s Lupin and Spain’s Money Heist are factored in.

We’ve already heard, but insider Daniel Richtman is offering that Sweet Tooth is going to be getting two more runs. Whether the tipster means it’s being handed a rare two-season renewal out of the gate or is planned to wrap up with a third run of episodes remains unclear, but it would be madness were the streamer not to pick up one of its biggest hits for at least one more whimsical adventure.
Sweet Tooth also drew rave reviews from critics, went down a storm with audiences and, so all signs are pointing firmly in the direction of Gus and Jep continuing their odd couple dynamic for at least a little while, so let’s hope Netflix makes it official sooner rather than later so the hype can start building all over again.
itemprop=”headline name”>Army Of Thieves Poster Puts Fan Favorite Dieter Front And Center
Jul 25, 2021 9:23 am2021-07-25T09:23:56-05:00
Netflix’s Army of the Dead universe is off to a phenomenal start, repaying the streamer’s faith in Zack Snyder to create a hit in-house property from the ground up. Not only did the undead actioner draw in 75 million streams to become, but the announcement of Snyder’s exclusive development deal came burdened with the news that a sequel has officially entered active development.
Not only that, but prequelwas recently confirmed for a fall 2021 debut, while animated companion series Lost Vegas has been set for a spring 2022 bow. It’s all systems go for the rapidly-expanding universe, then, and there’s going to be much more to come with the romantic heist caper holding a Comic-Con panel later today.
In anticipation of the event, Snyder took to social media and revealed the first character poster from Army of Thieves, focusing on everyone’s favorite eccentric safecracker Dieter, which you can check out below.

Matthias Schweighöfer became an instant favorite thanks to his scene-stealing supporting role in Army of the Dead, and as both the leading man and director of the prequel, he’s got a much bigger presence on either side of the camera when it comes to Army of Thieves.
Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah have described the project as an Ocean’s Eleven-inspired blend of heist thriller and romantic comedy, presumably with Nathalie Emmanuel’s Gwendoline as the other half of the equation opposite Dieter., but he hasn’t ruled out the undead appearing altogether, and it’ll be interesting to see how Army of Thieves contributes to the overall mythology as both a prequel and a shift into an entirely different genre.
itemprop=”headline name”>Netflix’s New Horror Movie Has Users On The Edge Of Their Seats
Jul 25, 2021 9:21 am2021-07-25T09:22:00-05:00
We’ve seen Samuel L. Jackson battle limbless reptiles in Snakes on a Plane, watched Harrison Ford kick ass as the president in Air Force One, enjoyed Wesley Snipes foiling a sky high terrorist plot in Passenger 57, followed Kurt Russell trying to resolve an airborne hostage situation in Executive Decision and scratched our heads as Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk till Dawn morphed from a crime thriller into a gonzo vampire movie halfway through.
If you put all of those titles into a blender, add a generous lashing of blood and dump it on top of a surprisingly emotional mother/son story, then you’ve got, Netflix’s latest smash hit original film. The streamer is gaining a well-deserved reputation as the place to be for high concept genre mashups, and Peter Thorwarth’s bloodsucking adventure at 30,000 is the latest in a long line of wild ideas to have become instant audience favorites.
It didn’t take a genius to figure out thatjust 24 hours after premiering on Friday, and as you can see from the reactions below, subscribers everywhere have been enjoying the slick, stylish and occasionally ultra-violent hybrid of horror and thriller.
This is such a hard concept to sell. Vampires on a plane, but dang the execution was awesome. Entertaining and refreshing concept.
— Nat_Scribbles (@Nat_Scribbles)
Vampires on a plane? Look no further thanwhich is a high-concept romp that goes the extra (sky)mile in terms of exploiting the concept. It’s about 15 minutes too long, but a bloody wild time nonetheless and a solid addition to the bloodsucker genre. On Netflix now.
— Arctic Ninja Paul (@arcticninjapaul)
A mix of Horror, drama and family affection all in one script. Never envisioned a vampire movie to be like this.at Netflix is quite something.
— Bob Ayoti (@ayoti_bob)
This might make some people mad but Netflix has been absolutely KILLING it this year in terms of horror content. You have the Fear Street trilogy, Army of the Dead, Oxygen, The Block Island Sound, and now Blood Red Sky? No other studio has had this consistent of quality in 2021.

— Stan Woo!Ah! or I will find you (@stanwooahrn)
It’s a bold move to take a concept that’s been done to death in action cinema like the ‘plane is hijacked in midair by terrorists’ setup and then use it as the basis for a vampire story,. It’s not a perfect movie by any means, but it’s a damn fun one nonetheless, and it’s even better that the ending is as definitive as can be in an age where anything with a unique premise tends to close on a blatant sequel-baiting note.
itemprop=”headline name”>Zack Snyder’s Netflix Deal Might Not Be The End Of The SnyderVerse
Jul 25, 2021 9:20 am2021-07-25T09:20:38-05:00
If you thought Zack Snyder‘s Stone Quarry Productions signing an exclusive two-year development deal with Netflix would mark the end of the SnyderVerse chatter, you’d be dead wrong. Fans will never give up on the filmmaker returning to Warner Bros. to pick up where HBO Max’s Justice League left off, and they won’t extinguish that flame until the Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director rules it out from happening himself.
There’s been no shortage of chatter that the impending finalization of the Discovery merger could, and even if that does come to pass, it won’t be until mid-2023 at the very earliest. Tipster Mikey Sutton, , is once again reiterating his belief that it could still happen somewhere down the line.

While that’s entirely true, the chances are that Snyder will be remaining at Netflix for the foreseeable future. The only new project announced since the deal was made official is an Army of the Dead sequel, and prior to that prequel Army of Thieves, companion series Lost Vegas,, former Star Wars spinoff Rebel Moon and an original action film to be directed by Damon Caro were already all on the table.
The two years covers the development of properties through Stone Quarry, meaning Zack Snyder would likely have to sign a separate contract to direct any of those projects for the streamer. The Army of the Dead universe is just getting started,, while just got a lot closer to happening, so there’s a huge volume of Netflix content set to arrive between now and the SnyderVerse being hypothetically restored.
itemprop=”headline name”>Jason Blum Addresses Possible Halloween: Season Of The Witch Remake
Jul 25, 2021 9:19 am2021-07-25T09:19:30-05:00
As one of the most consistently successful production companies of the modern era that built their entire reputation on low budget thrillers and horrors that can almost always be relied on to turn sizeable profits at the box office, Blumhouse are now in a position to get away with pretty much whatever they want.
Having delivered a string of hits and franchises including Paranormal Activity, The Purge, M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and Glass, The Invisible Man, Happy Death Day and Insidious, as well as awards season favorites and Best Picture nominees Get Out and BlackKklansman, Jason Blum’s outfit have a huge amount of creative carte blanche.
David Gordon Green’sbrought the stagnant series roaring back to life, with sequels Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends coming in October of this year and next, bringing the reboot/sequel hybrid trilogy to a close, in what looks like as well.
1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch took the mythology in an entirely different direction, but in a new interview, Blum appeared to rule out the notion of remaking the cult classic and self-aware sequel.
“Not to me. But like I said, my shepherding of Halloween, hopefully not, but currently, it’s done after the three movies. So you’ll have to ask my partner-in-crime Malek Akkad who will do Halloween from now until the end of time. He may do that, but not for me. Too hard, well, I won’t go into it, but I wouldn’t do that with Halloween. That’s why you gotta be tough, some fans are happy, some are sad. You just gotta hold your ground.”

Notable for being the only Halloween movie that doesn’t feature Michael Myers, Season of the Witch treats the first two chapters as fictional films in-universe, and introduced both witchcraft and elements of sci-fi into the mix. It was panned at the time,, with many longtime aficionados holding it up as one of the best entries in the entire franchise, but a new version isn’t something Jason Blum is interested in making happen.
itemprop=”headline name”>A Will Smith Bomb Is Finding New Life On Netflix
Jul 24, 2021 11:01 am2021-07-24T11:02:02-05:00
As the industry has shifted towards brands, franchises and IP being the major selling point behind the biggest movies to hit theaters, the concept of the ‘movie star’ has shifted somewhat. Back in the day, whoever sat above the title on the poster was enough to build an entire marketing campaign around, but those sort of A-listers capable of using only their name to draw in a crowd are dwindling in number.
When you think of actors that possess the rare ability to convince people to watch their movies for the sole reason they’re in it and nothing else, there aren’t many who jump out besides the usual candidates of Tom Cruise, Dwayne Johnson, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington and Will Smith. Even then, they’re not immune to the odd bomb or two, as evidenced when the latter’sspent a quarter of a century in development hell, and arrived in the form of a $138 million clusterf*ck directed by Academy Award winner Ang Lee.
The concept remains sound, following a veteran assassin who discovers a clone of his younger self has been tasked to kill him, but the execution is way off. The CGI simply isn’t up to scratch, rendering Junior as akin to a weightless video game character any time he’s forced to do anything that isn’t remain completely still, and the action is painfully bland.
Gemini Man was one of the most notorious flops of 2019,, but it’s continually troubled the Netflix most-watched list, probably due to the Will Smith factor. After gaining newfound momentum in and , it’s back again and can currently be found sitting in tenth place on the viewership rankings.
itemprop=”headline name”>A Terrible Bruce Willis Movie Has Been Dominating Netflix All Week
Jul 24, 2021 10:51 am2021-07-24T10:51:14-05:00
Between 1988 and 2000, Bruce Willis headlined the Die Hard trilogy, lent support in Pulp Fiction and The Siege, as well as taking top billing in The Last Boy Scout, The Jackal, Armageddon, The Fifth Element, 12 Monkeys and Unbreakable, all of which were either critical or commercial smash hits, and in many cases both.
That’s why he reigned as one of the biggest, most popular and bankable stars in the industry for so long, but it would be fair to say his fall from grace has been rapid. These days, you’re a whole lot more likely to find Willis in your local bargain bin than on your nearest big screen, but you can’t say he hasn’t been prolific.
It feels as though barely a week goes by without a new VOD effort starring the fallen A-lister appears, which is probably because it’s almost the truth., just seven days after Out of Death, and we’re getting at least one or two more before the year is out.

It’s still holding on firm in eighth place, and Cosmic Sin is one of six Bruce Willis movies that can currently be found on the platform if you’re in the mood,.
itemprop=”headline name”>John Carpenter Thinks There Are 2 More Escape From New York Stories To Tell
Jul 24, 2021 9:49 am2021-07-24T09:51:27-05:00
Legacy sequels are all the rage these days, with countless long-dormant properties being revived and resurrected, telling a new story designed to rebuild a franchise from the ground up, while recruiting a couple of familiar stars to provide some connective tissue.
As much as fans would love it to become a reality, it’s very unlikely that Kurt Russell will be donning the eye patch of Snake Plissken again. John Carpenter almost certainly won’t be stepping behind the camera having been out of the directorial business for over a decade, but theremake continues to try and escape from development hell.
It’s been in the works since 2007, with Gerard Butler and Josh Brolin both being linked with the iconic lead role, while Luther creator Neil Cross, Robert Rodriguez and Leigh Whannell have all signed on at various points. The latter remains attached,, besides Kurt’s son Wyatt Russell admitting that were he to step into his old man’s shoes as Snake.
In a new interview, Carpenter wouldn’t exactly confirm or deny what he does or doesn’t know about any new spin on Escape from New York, but he did admit his belief that there are potentially two more stories to tell with Russell Sr.’s Snake.
“He’s a character that Kurt is passionately fond of. He convinced me to do the sequel. There’s probably a third or maybe even fourth story about Snake. I don’t know if we’ll ever make it, but I think that he deserves it.”
, even at 70 years old Kurt Russell is more than capable of bringing his signature twinkly-eyed charm and gravitas to any role he plays, not to mention he’s still sporting an utterly fantastic head of hair for a man his age. If Whannell’s Escape from New York eventually gains real traction, there are worse ideas out there than a quick legacy cameo.
itemprop=”headline name”>Gal Gadot Goes Viral After The Olympics Opens With Imagine Cover
Jul 24, 2021 9:48 am2021-07-24T09:48:19-05:00
All in all, it’s been a tough year for Wonder Woman 1984 star. After receiving backlash for her tone-deaf message regarding the coronavirus pandemic, the actress also came under fire for how she addressed the recent spike in violence in Israel/Palestine.
To top it all off, cinemagoers and DC enthusiasts had mixed feelings about Patty Jenkins’ sequel, some of which bordered on controversy for some viewers because a lot of the more political themes were seen to be ill-conceived. Now, the Hollywood actress has managed to go viral yet again, this time through no fault of her own.
The 2020 Tokyo Olympics kickstarted yesterday with an opening ceremony that featured many iconic soundtracks from across the pop culture landscape, including scores from Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Sonic, etc. John Legend and Keith Urban also performed a version of “Imagine” by John Lennon, but as memorable as that song is, people now jokingly associate it with Gal Gadot.
By that, of course, we’re broaching the aforementioned tone-deaf message that the Fast & Furious star and a group of her celebrity friends shared on social media. Back in March 2020, Gadot gathered a bunch of stars to do a rendition of “Imagine,” to spread the word that “we’re all in this together.” Unsurprisingly, many people, including frontliners and people whose jobs were affected by the pandemic, reacted negatively to the idea.
Now, Twitter users are using this opportunity to take a jab at the actress again, and here are some of the things they’ve been sharing online:

itemprop=”headline name”>An Awesome Leonardo DiCaprio Movie Just Hit Netflix
Jul 24, 2021 9:45 am2021-07-24T09:46:02-05:00
It’s been a long time since Hollywood viewed the Western as a hot commodity, so it was only fitting that someone with such a love of cinema history, the genre itself and its spaghetti variant would come along to deliver the best oater the business had seen in a long time.
Not only isthe highest-grossing Western ever made, it’s also the biggest box office hit of Quentin Tarantino’s career. It additionally won him his second Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, saw Christoph Waltz go two-for-two when it came to scooping Best Supporting Actor for his work with the filmmaker, and landed a Best Picture nod as well.
Waltz may have stolen the majority of awards season glory, but Leonardo DiCaprio was every bit his onscreen equal as Calvin Candie, subverting several expectations of his own by delivering a chilling and extravagantly villainous performance, something that he’s not exactly been famed for doing during his long and illustrious career.
Several films from the Tarantino back catalogue have troubled Netflix’s Top 10 most-watched list after being added to the library recently, so it stands to reason that Django Unchained will do exactly the same now it’s available to stream. It might be 165 minutes long, but the story flies by in a sea of blood and bullets, all anchored by the desire for Jamie Foxx’s title hero to reunite with his wife, no matter who or what gets in his way.
By the end of the weekend, Django Unchained will have more than likely established itself as one of the most popular titles on the platform, which is the least it deserves when it’s arguably the most purely entertaining and action-packed effort in Tarantino’s filmography.
itemprop=”headline name”>Sean Penn Refusing To Return To Work Until Crew Of His New Series Is Vaccinated
Jul 24, 2021 9:45 am2021-07-24T09:45:08-05:00
Sean Penn has always tended to be a fairly polarizing figure, but it can’t be denied that he’s one of the best actors of his generation. The 60 year-old’s trophy cabinet is bursting with two Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild and widespread acclaim for a number of performances dating back decades, so it’s a big deal that he’s making a rare foray into episodic television by starring in Starz Watergate drama Gaslit, which sees him heading the cast opposite Julia Roberts.
Penn’s political and social activism has generated just as many headlines as his onscreen work, and there’s been more than a few controversies along the way, but he’s now putting his foot down and refusing to return to work on Gaslit until the crew has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, dishing out the ultimatum that he’ll be sitting at home until his demands have been met.
While it might sound like slightly diva-ish behavior on the surface, even if we are talking about a deadly pandemic that’s still a very real danger, Penn has offered to make it happen through his nonprofit Community Organized Relief Effort organization completely free of charge, so it’s hardly something that could throw Gaslit into total chaos.
Production began at the end of April, so it’s unclear what suddenly forced him to play hardball with the cast and crew, but it should be noted that cases are starting to rise all over the world as the last form of restrictions are lifted in many places. Gaslit stars Sean Penn as General John Mitchell, President Nixon’s close advisor and even closer friend, with Roberts playing his wife Martha, one of the first to publicly link Nixon to the Watergate scandal, but there’s no word on when shooting will pick up again.
itemprop=”headline name”>Shazam! Fury Of The Gods Set Photo Reveals Returning DCEU Character
Jul 24, 2021 9:43 am2021-07-24T09:43:10-05:00
Shooting continues on blockbuster DCEU sequel, and with the movie filming a lot of footage outdoors, a deluge of set photos have invariably been making their way online. Director David F. Sandberg acknowledged as much, when he revealed that so the reveal wasn’t spoiled for the fans by some grainy snaps taken from a distance.
Behind the scenes pictures did give us our first look at Helen Mirren in costume as villain Hespera, though, and now another returning character from the first film has been confirmed. Most folks probably weren’t expecting Djimon Honsou to appear as the ancient wizard who first bestowed our young hero with his powers after deeming him pure of heart, but as you can see below, he’s back in action.

Having already fulfilled his narrative obligations by delivering the lengthy exposition dump that filled the uninitiated in on who Shazam! is, where his powers come from and why Billy is deserving of them, fans will no doubt begin speculating furiously as to how and why Honsou fits into Fury of the Gods.
From an entirely speculative point of view, it could be tied to Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, even though Shazam! Fury of the Gods isn’t releasing until June 2023, eleven months after The Rock’s superhero debut hits theaters. In the comic books, Teth-Adam gets his powers from the wizard just like Billy did, andabout potentially getting to face off against the world’s biggest movie star in a future DCEU project, so maybe Honsou is back to issue an ominous warning.
itemprop=”headline name”>Eric Bana Reveals His Frustrations At Playing The Hulk
Jul 24, 2021 9:42 am2021-07-24T09:42:38-05:00
Technology has long since advanced to a point where Mark Ruffalo suits up in a motion capture leotard to get into thick of the action as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s, with the effects team doing the majority of the heavy lifting in post-production, but that wasn’t the case when Eric Bana played the role in Ang Lee’s 2003 blockbuster.
Despite being the leading man and star of the movie, Bana wasn’t involved at all whenever his giant green alter ego was onscreen, with the rest of the ensemble having to react to a massive rage monster when there wasn’t much more than a crude model being paraded around on set, with the film’s Bruce Banner left sitting on the sidelines.
It was the director who performed the majority of the mo-cap work for Hulk, with Lee even going so far as to tell Bana that he was part of a piece inspired by Greek tragedy, and the filmmaker was making a whole other movie packed with action sequences starring the title hero without him. Unsurprisingly,on his time in the superhero genre, revealing at how frustrated he was by the approach.
“You go from Black Hawk Down where you’re shooting mainly daytime, exteriors, natural light. Boom: out in the world. To suddenly, I’m playing a scientist and I’m in a lab or a house, indoors. There’s this other movie going on with green screen that I have nothing to do with, because that’s the Hulk. It’s the other actors that are playing in that space. So in some ways it felt like a tiny movie because the reality for me was every day was interior, studio, one room, very few big scenes. Lots of dialogue. I don’t like working indoors.”
Coming off a boots on the ground war story like Black Hawk Down and heading straight into Hulk must have been a jarring experience, especially when Bana wasn’t required for any of the latter’s marquee set pieces and was effectively hired to deliver a dramatic performance and little else. That’s probably a huge reason why he signed on to Wolfgang Petersen’s Troy immediately afterwards, which gave him the chance to shoot outdoors and sink his teeth into some combat training and practical stunts.
itemprop=”headline name”>Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Star Confirms Their Return For The Sequel
Jul 24, 2021 9:41 am2021-07-24T09:41:12-05:00
The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man: No Way Home is expected to revolve around the multiverse, but even if it lives up to Tom Holland’s billing as, it’s still got a long way to go if it wants to match the levels of critical and audience acclaim that greeted Sony’s .
Arguably the greatest animated comic book adaptation ever made, and without a doubt one of the finest superhero stories of the modern era, Into the Spider-Verse scored rave reviews across the board and landed the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature., but plot details are being kept under heavy guard for the time being.
However, Jake Johnson has confirmed that he will back as Peter B. Parker, the washed-up and disheveled version of the web-slinger. While his return may have been a foregone conclusion looking at how heavily he factored into the original, it’s still encouraging to hear it come straight from the man himself.
“I’ve been working on a contract. I believe Peter B. Parker is making a return. All I know is that I heard nothing for the longest time and I was very sad. I really loved playing Peter B. Parker. I would like to know what happens with Peter B. Parker. I think the way his journey ended in the first movie was very open-ended. So, when I got word that they were working on a deal or figuring it all out, I thought I truly can’t wait to see what the writers came up with.”
