Over the weekend, James Bond returned to theaters for the 24th time with the release of Spectre. Starring Daniel Craig, who reprises the role of Bond for the fourth time, Spectre hasn’t exactly received favorable reviews from critics or movie-goers. Some reviews have called it an absolute mess, with a few publications going so far as to call it the worst James Bond movie in years. Meanwhile, on Rotten Tomatoes, the film only has a 62% rating, far below the 93% rating Skyfall earned two years ago.
The latest chapter in the James Bond saga unfolds on Friday as the hotly anticipated movie Spectre makes its long-awaited debut in the United States. Of course, there was significantly more hype before a disinterested Daniel Craig seemingly gave up on a productive media tour, but the movie promises to be entertaining and action-packed nevertheless.
With each new Bond film, there are certain things we can always expect. Plenty of action, car chases, explosions, gorgeous cars, beautiful women… and of course, a bunch of great gadgets that help Bond escape even the trickiest of situations. Just how many Q Branch gadgets has James Bond used over the years? A new video lines them all up in chronological order. More →
A terminally ill Star Wars fan who may not live long enough to view Star Wars: The Force Awakens when it hits theaters next month was given the opportunity to watch the film weeks before its release.
Daniel Fleetwood, just 31-years old, tragically suffers from a rare and aggressive form of cancer. Currently, more than 90% of Fleetwood’s lungs are affected by tumors. With doctors giving him just one to two more months to live, one of the last things he wanted to do was to watch the upcoming Star Wars movie, a wish that his all-star of a wife Ashley Fleetwood made happen.
So you thought that you wouldn’t see any additional footage of Star Wars: The Force Awakens until the movie’s actual release? Think again. Walt Disney Studios Japan has just posted an alternate version of the trailer for The Force Awakens that contains a bunch of never-before-seen footage.
There are one or two huge movie releases left in the next month or so (one of which no one can stop talking about), but the impatient among us are already looking forward to 2016. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long for the first blockbuster of the year, as The Hateful Eight is scheduled to hit theaters on January 8th.
Belgium voice actor Nic De Houwer recently showed off his impersonation skills with an impressive 5-minute video where he quickly and seamlessly cycles through a varied selection of celebrity actors. While some of his impressions are more on-point than others, his range is truly astounding.
While his Nicholas Cage impression is particularly subpar, there are a few real winners here, including his Jason Statham and Louise Armstrong impressions.
NASA’s announcement in late September that it found evidence of flowing water on Mars was only the beginning of the revelations that will be the result of its current Mars mission. The organization’s exploratory mission carried out by the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft began with the intention of examining Mars’ atmosphere to an extent that had never before been possible, and now NASA is about to reveal what it is calling key science findings on the “fate Mars’ atmosphere.” More →
Whether you’ve come to terms with it or not, we probably won’t see any more Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage until the movie hits theaters next month. It’s going to be a difficult wait, but the studio has been kind enough to drip feed us until the release date, as it did on Wednesday with a new series of character posters. More →
I am really excited for the new Star Wars movie but I also have a persistent fear that it will be terrible. A new “honest trailer” from Screen Junkies plays on those fears and reminds me of just how incredibly bad the Star Wars prequels really were thanks to George Lucas’s epic blunders such as the casting of Jake Lloyd, Jar Jar Binks, midi-chlorians and those awful, awful love scenes between Anakin and Padmé.

Over the years, I’ve become increasingly aware of edits in films and TV shows. It’s one of the (many) reasons that I love Edgar Wright’s films so much — the edits and the cuts and the pans are just as important as the characters and the plot itself. But not everyone is quite so meticulous when it comes to hiding the seams.
So you’ve played all the Warcraft games you’re interested what the minds behind the epic fantasy series can come up with next. Can they make a movie based on the massive Warcraft universe and some of its iconic characters? Yes, they can. And the movie will hit theaters on June 10, 2016. That means we’re ready for an official trailer for the Warcraft movie and the first teaser for it is out. More →
When you pay upwards of $15 to see a movie in theaters, you’d like to think that you’re in for an entirely new experience — something you’ve never seen before.
Although that’s typically what you’re going to get, there are times when filmmakers find clever ways to insert old footage into new movies in order to cut down on the budget.
When Marvel initially announced a partnership with Netflix that would result in multiple miniseries following some of the lesser known heroes of the comic book universe, we were all cautiously optimistic.
We quickly discovered that our caution was unfounded when Daredevil blew us away earlier this year, but even though the first series was a major success, that doesn’t mean everything is going smoothly behind closed doors. More →
