You really can't go home again
Late last month we got to hear Yellow Flicker Beat, the song that Lorde wrote for the soundtrack to the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and today we get to hear that song featured in a new preview trailer for the film. In the video embedded above, we see protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) paying a visit to her home District 12 to survey the damage done by the Capitol. The imagery is stark, the music is powerful and the scene is really exciting in that I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE! If you enjoyed the full trailer that was released in September, I think you’ll enjoy this new video trailer as well. Enjoy.
The Flash, Aquaman, Shazam and Green Lantern are all getting movies
Warner Bros. made a HUGE announcement today regarding the slew of superhero movies they will be releasing over the next 6 years. We already know that Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and a stand-alone Wonder Woman movie are on the way but today we learn that 8 more movies will be released up through 2020. Characters like The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Shazam are getting their first-ever stand-alone movies while Green Lantern is getting a reboot (thank the gods).

The 'Fantastic Beasts ...' Trilogy will begin in 2016
Back in September of last year, JK Rowling first announced that she was writing a new Harry Potter spin-off movie based on her Harry Potter spin-off book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. In May of this year, we learned that the movie is slated for release in 2016. Today we learn that Fantastic Beasts will be turned into a 3 movie trilogy that will jump start a new on-going franchise of Harry Potter-related movies that will rival the constant release of superhero films that other studios keep putting out. Brace yourselves, Potter fans, there are a slew of new movies coming our way. More »
Along with a SLEW of fun behind the scenes photos from the set
The upcoming sequel film Jurassic World (aka Jurassic Park 4) won’t hit theaters until next June but today we are getting our first look at the first official poster for World and we learn that the film’s official tagline is “The Park is Open” … which I love because it could be construed as a good thing (Yay! The Jurassic World park is open for family fun!) or a bad thing (Oh no! The Jurassic World park is open … and dinosaurs are eating people!). Clever. For the past few months, director Colin Trevorrow has been sharing fun, behind the scenes photos from the set of Jurassic World on his official Twitter profile and I’ve complied a few of them for inclusion in this gallery. We still have many months to go before Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015 but when the movie does OPEN, I know we are in for a treat.
Iron Man V. Captain America: Justice of Dawn
Over the past few months there has been some confusion as to whether or not there will be a 4th Iron Man film starring Robert Downey, Jr. because first RDJ said he was done making stand-alone Iron Man films then he suggested that he might return for another Iron Man film if the money was right. Today we learn that RDJ is in very serious final negotiations to return as Iron Man in another Marvel Comics superhero movie after he features in the forthcoming Avengers movie Age of Ultron … today we learn he has all but signed on to reprise his role as Iron Man/Tony Stark in the as-yet untitled third Captain America movie. But what does this mean?! More »
The 'Stay Puft' Edition
Last week we learned that the upcoming Ghostbusters 3 will be completely rebooted with a new female cast of funny ladies but let’s turn our attention back to the original 1984 film. As you may know, the movie was re-released in theaters this summer in honor of the film’s 30th anniversary but today we learn that the anniversary celebration ain’t over yet. The Ghostbusters theme song, performed by Ray Parker, Jr., is being released on 12″ vinyl this month in a special collectors edition that looks and smells like a marshmallow … because ISN’T THAT THE COOLEST IDEA EVER?! Click below to get your first look at this new 12″ single and find out how you can get your hands on Ghostbusters: Stay Puft Edition Super Deluxe vinyl. More »
The TV Guide
So, my Sunday turned out to be a pretty decent FunDay and I didn’t even have to leave the house to experience it. I had plans to do a couple of things yesterday but I didn’t really feel all that great when I woke and I decided to just stay home and rest. For the past few weeks, I’ve been running around pretty much every day and instead of running around again yesterday, I figured I should stay home and relax for a bit. I’ve been meaning to just lay on the couch and watch movies for some time now and yesterday was my day. On my agenda was a rewatching of the Star Wars films episodes 1 – 3. More »
'I never talked like this about a film, but...'
Come November 7, I may be heading to the IMAX theatre at some ridiculous hour of the night to see Christopher Nolan‘s latest, Interstellar. We saw Matthew McConaughey attempting to save the world in the last trailer, and now one of the film’s other big stars is speaking out. Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain says don’t be fooled by the outer space, sci-fi focus of Interstellar—it’s def a love story, at heart. Click inside for more!
Coming in 2017
After the huge success of The Lego Movie earlier this year, it was announced that a sequel would be coming out way in 2017. Today we learn that The Lego Movie 2 has been pushed back and, in its place, a stand-alone Lego Batman movie will be released in its place. Warner Bros. seems anxious to capitalize on the popularity of Lego Batman so they’ve decided to fast-track an animated movie that will star the tiny Dark Knight. More »
I'm into it.
If you’re a dork like me, you get a little thrill out of reading the rolling credits, after a film is finished. My eyebrows definitely went up after seeing Gone Girl last weekend, and Reese Witherspoon‘s name popped up among the producer credits. I don’t know why, but I sort of dig the idea of her being behind the camera more. I feel like she has a good eye, and it might make for some good productions. So I’m happy to hear that she’s getting into directing now. Click inside for more!
