For decades, scientists have used references to popular culture to help people understand breakthroughs in technology. Although the go-to series for the smart folks behind every innovation in your life has been 'Star Trek,' the latest crazy advancement is also applicable to something a little more, well, magical. Yes, someone has gone and built themselves an rudimentary invisibility cloak, like the one seen in the Harry Potter series.
Despite being one of the bigger hits of 2007, a sequel to 'I Am Legend' failed to materialize. Blame star Will Smith's unwillingness to do sequels or blame the film's rather definitive ending, which made a follow-up difficult. Seven years later, the franchise that wasn't is being rebooted and, no, Smith will not be involved.
During Universal's horror golden age of the '30s and '40s, the studio's beloved monsters all existed in aesthetically similar movies. When they starting going into decline, they even started showing up in each other's films to team up and/or battle to the death. So it makes perfect sense for the Universal of 2014 to see potential in a shared cinematic universe of their iconic monsters and it looks like the upcoming 'Dracula Untold' will kick it all off.
Like every other entertainment site on the internet, we've done our fair share of reporting about the various rumored plot details and characters of 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' Naturally, all of these have been behind big spoiler warnings and we've always been careful to let readers make the decision to be spoiled or not. And that brings us to the most recent story detail to hit the internet ... and it's a big one. So big, that we're not even going to write about it. Instead, we're going to issue a warning.
The 'John Wick' trailer showcases what the cool kids have known and will always know: Keanu Reeves is just the best. Even when you place him in the middle of an action thriller that, on paper, sounds tired and played out, he's all you need to get our interest piqued. There is no one quite like Reeves, who has transformed his laid-back, deliberately wooden acting style into an acting style that is entirely his own.
The reveal of Legendary Pictures' 'Skull Island' was one of the few genuine surprises of this year's Comic-Con. The studio already had a teaser for the film set on the infamous island inhabited by King Kong, dinosaurs and other terrifying monsters, but it was lacking just about everything else. Now, those gaps are starting to get filled: Jordan Vogt-Roberts has signed on to direct, Tom Hiddleston will star, and the film itself will hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
If you thought studios securing release dates years in advance for movies that don't even have titles yet was crazy, you haven't seen anything yet. Now, television networks are now buying the rights to air those untitled movies years before they're even released in theaters. Specifically, TNT has signed on the dotted line with Marvel Studios to air the next five Marvel movies, which includes 'Avengers 2,' 'Captain America 3,' 'Ant-Man' and, um, two others.
A pretty wacky rumor sprung up over the weekend. It seems that, according to certain sources, the Batmobile from 'Batman vs Superman' had been stolen from the set, which meant that some car thief was driving around Detroit in their brand new tank. The rumor was quickly put to rest, but not before director Zack Snyder was able to joke about it.
The new trailer for 'The Equalizer' essentially doubles down on what the other trailers have only hinted at: this movie is all about taking weird pleasure in watching a remarkably calm Denzel Washington kill off the Russian mob. It looks nothing like the TV show it's supposedly based on, but it does look like it'll fall right in line with the bulk of Washington's modern filmography. Once again, he plays the coolest guy in the room and once again, he's a good enough actor to make it all look oh-so-easy.
As the unofficial mascot of the Marvel cinematic universe (he's pretty much Mickey Mouse to this corner of the Disney empire), Downey Jr.'s words and opinions feel like they carry a lot of weight. So when he chimes in with a comment that's essentially "Yeah, there really should be a female-led superhero movie, huh?", we can't help but feel slightly vindicated for wondering where the heck a 'Black Widow' or even a 'Captain Marvel' movie is.
Our first look at Jon Stewart's directorial debut has arrived in the 'Rosewater' trailer, showcasing a side of this funnyman we've never seen before. After years of making us laugh and sigh as the host of 'The Daily Show,' the beloved comedian has stepped behind the camera with a film that doesn't look like it has a single laugh in its entire running time, but it looks harrowing and fascinating all the same.
A few weeks ago, this column was skeptical that Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could reach $300 million. Now, it seems impossible that it won't. Thanks to ecstatic word of mouth, killer marketing and only one genuinely successful box office challenger (that would be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'), Marvel's oddball space opera has managed to spend three of the past four weekends at the number one spot at the box office, giving it enough momentum to officially become the highest grossing film of 2014.
