So the best
With the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron on DVD/Blu-Ray comes a bunch of bonus material including a hilarious gag reel, which has been shared online for our viewing pleasure. Because the video embedded here appears to be unauthorized, it’s very likely that it will not remain online for long … so enjoy it while you can. The full clip of Avengers f*ck-ups can be enjoyed over and over to one’s heart’s content on the official video release of this movie and if the embed above is any indication, this video release is a must-own for Avengers fans. I think my fave parts of this gag reel are the kissing scenes … and Dr. Selvig‘s scenes. The whole thing is funny as hell, so enjoy.
UPDATE: The Avengers: Age of Ultron gag reel has been officially released and is embedded below, should the embed above stop working. More »
They better call it, 'Straight Outta Compton 2-pac'
The N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton has proved to be such a box office hit (on track to enjoy a second week in the #1 position at the box office this weekend) that we learn today that plans are in the early stages for a sequel film to come somewhere down the line. Compton briefly features cameo appearances by actors who play Snoop Dogg and Tupac and it is being reported today that the proposed sequel film will focus on those two men and their relation to Death Row Records (which was founded by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight). Normally, I would bristle at news of a hastily conceived sequel film that stems from an already excellent biopic film but considering how well Straight Outta Compton turned out, I am actually looking forward to the same treatment being given to the true life stories of Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

Mrs. Theroux is Funny That Way
After she got secretly married to Justin Theroux earlier this month, actress Jennifer Aniston jetted off to Bora Bora for a quick honeymoon before she returned home to LA to get back to work. Last night, Jen made her first public appearance since her wedding a couple of weeks ago at the LA premiere of her new film She’s Funny That Way. Jennifer attended the event without her new hubby but proudly wearing her new wedding ring. As you can see below, Jen opted for a simple wedding band circled with diamonds. Have a look below at Mrs. Theroux‘s new wedding bling and see how married life is treating her these days. More »
Evil Takes Many Forms
An indie horror movie titled The Witch made waves at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, causing quite a bit of conversation about how scary it was. Today we get our first look at The Witch in the just-released movie trailer embedded above. Set in colonial New England, The Witch seemingly tells a tale that we are already familiar with … but, as the first trailer above shows, in a very disturbing way. I’ve heard really great things about the movie, yes, but must admit that this first trailer is creepily unsettling but not nearly as terrifying as I’ve heard. My guess is that the filmmakers don’t want to give anything away before people can see the film. Check out the trailer above to get your first look at The Witch then click below to see the film’s poster artwork … More »

"I'm still alive"
Back in June we got our first look at the first movie trailer for Ridley Scott‘s new film, The Martian, which stars Matt Damon as a NASA astronaut stranded on Mars after a space mission goes awry. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film which hits theaters in November. Based on the novel by Andy Weir, The Martian promises high drama in the most extreme circumstances. As you may recall, the film’s first trailer had a very tense, dramatic feel to it. This second trailer feels a bit more light-hearted, thanks to the inclusion of music. I am very much looking forward to the release of this movie. The Martian opens in theaters on November 25.

Straight outta non-misogynistic terms for women
Hey guys. Soooo remember a while back I got sorta, kinda, hugely pissed off over the casting call for women hoping for a part in the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton? Remember how the women were ranked according to skin tone, with the light-skinned Beyoncé prototypes at the top of the list, and the “Poor, not in good shape. Medium to dark skin tone” women at the bottom. I wasn’t sure then if I was going to be heading into theatres to see this movie, and I’m still not sure, especially with this awesomely misogynistic new quote from Ice Cube. Click inside for more.
The Fall Movie Preview
Entertainment Weekly magazine releases its Fall Movie Preview issue this week and as you can see in the gallery presented here, they have chosen the forthcoming Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens as the cover star of the issue. Bad guy (?) Kylo Ren is featured on the cover and in the pages of this week’s issue of EW magazine among a neat collection of new images from the film.
