Netflix releases first six episodes of ‘The Get Down’ to mixed reviews

If you’ve finished binge watching Stranger Things and are on the hunt for a new show to get into, Netflix’s new show The Get Down may be worth checking out. Released earlier today, The Get Down is a Hip Hop musical drama set in 1970s New York. Featuring an all-star cast, including Giancarlo Esposito (aka Gus from Breaking Bad) and Jimmy Smits, it’s worth noting that the show was conceived by Baz Luhrmann and The Shield creator Shawn Ryan.

If the name Baz Luhrmann doesn’t sound familiar, chances are you’re already familiar with his work as he previously wrote and directed films like The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge!.

Darth Vader returns to Star Wars in brand new Rogue One trailer

I’ve been waiting for a long time to say this, but Darth Vader is back, baby! The great Star Wars villain we’ve grown to love has been rumored to appear in the first Star Wars spinoff, Rogue One, and all those reports were confirmed a few weeks ago. But we haven’t seen footage of him until now. A brand new trailer for Rogue One came out a few hours ago, revealing the main storyline, some of the characters including a great new droid and Darth Vader. More →

‘Stranger Things’ supercut highlights every reference to classic 80s movies

If you haven’t yet seen Netflix’s latest hit Stranger Things, set aside some time this weekend and dive into a show that some have already dubbed an “instant classic.” Set in the early 1980s, Stranger Things is an original, enthralling and — at times — heartwarming sci-fi show that pays subtle homage to iconic 80s films that have stood the test of time, from Poltergeist to Stand by Me. As one astute review of the show said, Stranger Things “doesn’t just reference ’80s movies. It captures how it feels to watch them.”

Watch the full-length trailer for ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’

Video game movies almost never work. Whether it’s Super Mario Bros., Doom or even Warcraft, filmmakers are rarely able to translate the interactive journeys that players experience into a linear, two-hour story. So what’s the key to making a successful film series based on a video game franchise?

For Sony Pictures Entertainment, the answer is simple: have a nearly invincible character murder everyone in her path while on the run from zombies.

Watch the first full-length trailer for ‘Luke Cage,’ coming to Netflix next month

After spending a year or so with Matt Murdock and Jessica Jones in Hell’s Kitchen, Marvel is taking us to Harlem with the premiere of Luke Cage in September. We first met Luke in Jessica Jones, where he appeared to be a mild-mannered bartender who lost his wife in a tragic accident.

At least, until we found out that he’s also bulletproof.

The Walking Dead Negan Kill Cliffhanger

‘The Walking Dead’ creator hints that season 7 won’t end with a…

The worst thing about the last season of The Walking Dead is that annoying cliffhanger at the end of the series. Who did Negan kill is a question that lingers, as AMC decided it’s best not to reveal it during the season’s finale. Following the massive backlash for this particular decision, the showrunners have decided to take a different approach for next season, hinting there won’t be annoying cliffhangers in the upcoming season. Caution, some spoilers are ahead. More →

Suicide Squad Bad Reviews Box Office

Suicide Squad opens to record August box office, but bad reviews might have the last laugh

Suicide Squad opens to record August box office, but bad reviews might have the last laugh

Remember when Batman v Superman was ridiculed in reviews, yet the movie’s opening weekend was a stellar hit for the studio? The same thing can be said for Warner’s second DC Comics movie, the highly anticipated Suicide Squad, a film that also fell victim to reviewers. Suicide Squad topped $135 million at the US box office over the weekend, with international earnings almost reaching $270 million. But the bad reviews might still cripple its potential bottom line.

Suicide Squad Bad Reviews

Inside story explains how Warner ruined ‘Suicide Squad’

Inside story explains how Warner ruined ‘Suicide Squad’

Suicide Squad was one of the top five highly anticipated movies of the year. A story from the DC Comic universe that focuses on the villains we love. Rather than seeing Batman, Superman, and all the other heroes deliver justice, we get a story about bad people, doing atrocious things, all in the name of good. The movie looked very promising from the start. It had a great cast, exciting trailers, and glorious soundtrack. But come early reviews day, it turns out people aren’t thrilled with the picture – not that reviewers can accurately predict box office success.

However, an inside story looking at the behind-the-scenes drama explains how Warner ruined Suicide Squad. More →

Suicide Squad Review Robert Liefeld

The creator of Deadpool wrote the only ‘Suicide Squad’ review you need

The creator of Deadpool wrote the only ‘Suicide Squad’ review you need

The superhero movie community has been subjected to three major surprises this year. The first was Deadpool—an over-the-top, under-budgeted, R-rated movie that smashed box office records and won over millions of adoring fans. The second was Batman v Superman, which failed to meet critical or financial expectations.

If you guessed that Suicide Squad would be surprise number 3, you were correct. Sadly, it’s not the good kind of surprise, but don’t take my word for it. Take it from someone who knows this industry as well as anyone.

Take it from Robert Liefeld.

Summer Olympic Games How To Watch

How to watch tonight’s opening ceremonies from the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio

How to watch tonight’s opening ceremonies from the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio

The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil has been subject to a seemingly endless number of controversies. Just off the top of my head, you’ve got the Zika virus, controversy surrounding Russian athletes doping, and well-founded concerns that the requisite infrastructure in Rio may not be ready to handle an influx of thousands of athletes flying in from across the world.

As a result, there’s been little to no coverage on the athletes and the games themselves. With the opening ceremonies set to get underway later tonight, hopefully we can start focusing on the competitive aspect of the games as opposed to any number of other distractions.

If you’re keen on checking out the 2016 Summer Olympic opening ceremonies tonight, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know.
