If you don’t like 3D movies (oh hi), then you are, apparently in good company — that is, if this rant of his is to be believed. Stan would like for 3D movies to go away, and get off his lawn!!!
This seems a bit tongue in cheek but I enjoyed it.
Oh, hey there. While we’re anxiously waiting for JJ Abrams to decend upon us with the goodness that we presume he will bestow upon us through the next entry into the Star Wars franchise, the official Star Wars YouTube account has given us a little bit of a goody by way of the original trailer for The Empire Strikes Back — by far my favorite Star Wars film to date. But I’ll tell you, man were the trailers bad back in those days. I mean the trailer is just awful. If I were to see anything remotely like this trailer now, I would stay very far away from this film. My how times change.

OK so this is kinda rich and you may have heard this story already, but in case you haven’t, well, the irony is just too delicious to pass up. Last week during the New York Film Festival, Madonna was caught texting during Steve McQueen’s “12 Years A Slave.” A painful, brutal, unflinching film about the horrors of slavery starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt and many more. When one audience member called out the Material Girl and asked politely to please stop texting, she had the gall to yell at the person and call them a particular type of 19thcentury tyrant. “It’s for…
So, speaking of Star Wars, recently, Harrison Ford and Benedict Cumberbatch were both asked about Star Wars, and of course they both played it coy. There’s litterally no new information here, but I thought it was fantastic and funny and well worth watching. Harrison Ford is playing all this up for all it’s worth and it’s hillarious to watch. Ford won’t even confirm that he’s in the film, but we all know that he is.
I will say that this point I think we will see Benedict Cumberbatch in the film in some capacity.
Sorry for the terrible joke in the headline. I have a weakness for lame jokes and it seems to be getting stronger as the years go by…
Anyway, as you all may know if you read my box office report, or follow me on Twitter. I enjoyed Gravity very much. And I’m not the only one. At this point it sort of seems like I’m jumping on the band wagon as I didn’t get to see the film until last night and everyone has already sung its praises. And even the critics have nothing but good things to say about this film.
Stepping up to sing the praises was also Buzz Aldrin. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter,…Read The Rest
Based on Live + 3 Day data for the 2nd episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the new ABC drama saw significantly bigger TV playback gains than for its premiere telecast. The show surged 51% to 4.92 Adult 18-49 rating (vs. a 3.26 rating in L+SD), up from a 38% increase for its debut telecast. Additionally, the second episode of the show built 39% in L+3 to deliver 12.07 million Total Viewers (vs. 8.66 million viewers in L+SD), up from a 31% increase for its premiere.
I remain completely unsurprised. This is the future of TV. In fact I couldn’t be happier with this. I think (hope)…Read The Rest
We’re just under eight months away from the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past and it’s shaping up to be the most ambitious X-Men film ever released. This kind of hyperbole isn’t lost on the cast as James McAvoy himself thinks it’s got a lot of potential.
“There’s an army of brilliant actors in that film,” he said in an interview with IGN. “Bryan Singer is back at the helm. Potentially it’s going to be the biggest, most epic X-Men they’ve ever had. I think it’s the second biggest production Fox have ever embarked upon, behind Avatar. So they’re definitely going for it.”
Come on, guys!…Read The Rest
I posted about this on Tuesday, but now I’ve got a video to go along with it. I love how sheepish JJ gets talking about it. He knows how stupid it can get and he’s embarrassed about it.
The other reason to watch this video is to be disappointed about the possibilities of Star Trek coming back to TV in some shape or form. JJ says that they have talked about it and thrown some ideas out, and CBS is just not interested right now. That’s a shame.
Check out the video.
Last year, I traveled to London to visit the set of the Marvel sequel Thor 2: The Dark World. The photo above is me holding Mjölnir, Thor’s iconic hammer – it’s actually heavier than it looks — in the massive weapon room of the film’s production offices. After the jump you can read about the many things that I learned while on set, and watch a video blog reaction I recorded after the visit. Later this week we’ll be publishing some of the interviews we conducted on set with the talent and crew, so be on the look out for them as well.
I had a lot of fun reading this and I highly recommend it…Read The Rest
As we begin to see light at the end of the deep, dark tunnel of the end of summer, one of the films I’m looking forward to most in the immediate future is Captain Phillips. It sure looks like a breathtakingly good true story drama. And, you know, TOM HANKS LOOKS FANTASTIC. It looks like the type of film that has just the right mixture of drama, action, and suspense to make a great thriller. Count me in.
The film comes to theaters in just 9 days, on October 11th.
