That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Okay, I feel a little bad for all of the WTFs I’m about to throw out there because two young actors are somewhere, feeling really excited. They just got cast alongside Alexandra Shipp (who replaced Zendaya Coleman) in Lifetime‘s made-for-TV Aaliyah biopic and I know they feel great. I don’t want to rain on that parade and I am, actually, happy for those actors. I wish them the best in their careers, truly. Now. All that being said… it’s very strange to see that Chattrisse Dolabaille and Izaak Smith are going to be playing Missy Elliot and Timbaland, respectively. I sort of… cannot with this. And I need some help working through this. Click inside for more!
The hosts got a surprise call from the director
This is such a great story. You never know who’s listening to your radio show (or reading your blog), so you should always be prepared to defend your opinions! The hosts (and listeners) of Detroit’s 97.1 The Ticket‘s Stoney and Bill radio show got quite the surprise when Batman V Superman director Zack Snyder called in to defend the honor of Aquaman. Rumor has it, the superhero will be in the film—of course, my favorite part of that rumor is that Jason Momoa will be playing him. The hosts of the show were apparently talking smack about Aquaman, and Snyder wasn’t having it, lol! Click inside for more!
She's Private Amy Cole, a guard at Guantanamo Bay
We’d heard about this project a little while back and now the first trailer for Kristen Stewart‘s Camp X-Ray is here. The film debuted to positive reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, and I think it looks to tell a compelling story. Stewart plays Private Amy Cole, an American soldier at Guantanamo Bay. She meets a prisoner… er detainee who starts to change the way she sees her position and the side she’s on. It’s not an unfamiliar story, but I don’t think we’ve had a lot of big movies about what’s going on at Guantanamo Bay. I’m definitely no expert, so if nothing else, I hope director Pete Sattler gets people talking.
Camp X-Ray hits theaters on October 17.
The TV Guide
Last night Sarah, Mark and I made our way to their local movie theater so that we could see Guardians of the Galaxy together. Altho I’ve already seen the movie, they hadn’t so I was happy to see it again with them. The plan for the night was to keep things nice and easy so we opted for the movie date. Considering Sarah and I are headed up to Toronto, Ontario later today, an easy movie night was the perfect choice. More »
That's a wrap!
Filming production of the upcoming superhero sequel film The Avengers: Age of Ultron has wrapped and we know this because director (and geek god) Joss Whedon told us so. Joss posted a couple photos on his official Twitter profile announcing the end of filming production on Avengers 2 and publicly thanking key members of his crew. Click below to see the photos that Joss posted on Twitter and see what he has to say about wrapping up Age of Ultron. More »
Meet the Heroes of District 13
The promo push for the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 continues today with the release of a new batch of character posters from the film. A few weeks ago, we got to see the special limited edition Mockingjay poster that was released exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con but the posters we get today are much more interesting. Each of the characters featured above — President Coin, Haymitch, Effie, Plutarch, Finnick and Beetee — all represent the heroes from District 13 who are fighting against President Snow and the rest of Panem. These stark, colorless posters of the heroes of District 13 stand in opposition to the colorful, vibrant propaganda posters that were released previously of the “heroes” of the other Districts of Panem. Of this new batch, I think the Effie Trinkett poster is my fave. Check out the batch, see what you think. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will open in theaters on November 20.
But is she sharing too much?
The last time we heard from Megan Fox she was telling us to go f— ourselves if we didn’t like the new Ninja Turtles movie, LOL. Oh, but she was also demanding a new female-centered superhero movie. And now she’s kind of putting her husband on blast. When I read these excerpts from her interview I couldn’t help but think of that Sexual Dissatisfaction Spreadsheet story that went viral a few weeks back. Hopefully Brian Austin Green has a sense of humor because his wife just told the world exactly what they’ve been doing in bed — not a damn thing! Click inside for more!
Along with 20 minutes of deleted scenes
An alternate ending was shot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that was shelved in lieu of the ending that we got when the movie was released back in May. Today we get to see the alternate ending to the film that was scrapped, along with 20ish or so minutes of deleted scenes from Amazing 2. Personally, I love the wait the movie ended so I am not a fan of this alt ending … but some of the deleted scenes are pretty cool. It’s fun to see stuff like this from movies that we enjoy. I’m not sure if this video will be allowed to remain online for long so watch while you still can.
In the beginiing
Next Summer a new Terminator movie will be hitting movie theaters and because it is such a “much-anticipated” movie sequel, it has to have a bitchin’ name. Thus far the Terminator movies have been titled The Terminator, T2: Judgement Day, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation (not to mention The Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles which aired on TV). For the 5th installment, it sounds like the story is going to take us back to the beginning … like the beginning beginning. Click below to find out the title of the forthcoming Terminator movie and learn a bit about the film that just wrapped production. More »
