​I've figured out all the problems with Agents of SHIELD

Let me be upfront and say anyone expecting "The Hub" to be as epic as all its "Level 8 Clearance" promos implied it was going to be was surely disappointed. But despite my early misgivings, I ended up liking the episode a lot, although probably not for the reasons the showrunners hoped. But what most strikes me most… » 11/13/13 8:45am 11/13/13 8:45am

Kevin Smith has seen Ben Affleck's Batman suit and says it's fantastic

Good news for everyone who is tired of watching Batman put on varying styles of matte black armor in all of his movies — director and pal of Ben Affleck Kevin Smith says Zack Snyder has shown him the new costume, and that it will be totally different from anything that's come before in the Bat-movies. » 11/11/13 11:40am 11/11/13 11:40am

New Transformers 4 promo art reveals Optimus Prime riding Grimlock

This (admittedly fuzzy) picture comes from an unknown trade show, where toy companies like Hasbro ignore movie spoilers in hopes of inspiring buyers to carry their merchandise. And what could be a more inspiring site than a sword-wielding Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, riding Grimlock in his dinosaur mode into… » 11/08/13 1:30pm 11/08/13 1:30pm

Massive trailer for Studio Ghibli's hauntingly beautiful new movie

Do you have three minutes? Do you like beauty? Then I highly recommend to take some time to watch this new, lengthy trailer for Studio Ghibli's new film The Tale of Princess Kaguya.

Half of last night’s Agents of SHIELD was its best episode yet

If you turned off Agents of SHIELD halfway through “F.Z.Z.T.”, I don’t blame you. The first half was spent watching this supposedly super-important team investigate the deaths of three volunteer firefighters (a good thing to do, but not exactly the highest stakes). But if you did turn it off, you missed the good part… » 11/06/13 8:40am 11/06/13 8:40am

Attack the Block's Joe Cornish may be the director of Star Trek 3

He's been rumored to be in the running for a while now, but apparently Joe Cornish — director of the British scifi hit Attack the Block and co-writer of the CG Tintin movie and Edgar Wright's upcoming Ant-Man film — is Paramount's #1 choice to take over directing duties for the Star Trek movie franchise. » 11/04/13 11:40am 11/04/13 11:40am

Check out Magneto's new duds in X-Men: Days of Future Past

To clarify, it's the new outfit of the young Magneto, as revealed in Entertainment Weekly. While the chest armor looks a bit Batman-ish, it's still a nice mix of Magneto's comics outfit combined with the costume Ian McKellen wore in the original X-Men movies. Plus I think the dark purple is very nice. What do you… » 11/01/13 11:40am 11/01/13 11:40am

Star Wars: Episode VII is coming in 2015 whether it's ready or not

Uh-oh. Seeing as it's almost the end of 2013, it's going to take a mountain of post-production work, and it just got new scriptwriters, it seems almost impossible that Star Wars: Episode VII would make its summer 2015 release date. But don't tell Disney, because they're premiering it then no matter what. » 10/31/13 11:50am 10/31/13 11:50am
