It: Pennywise Serves Up A Terrifying Threat In Time For Thanksgiving

29 minutes ago

Last we saw Pennywise, he had been banished to the depths of Derry’s sewers, where he’s expected to remain for the next 27-odd years – yes, It: Chapter Two is officially in the pipeline, and it’ll haunt our dreams in September of 2019.

But it appears New Line has resurrected Stephen King’s shape-shifting abomination ahead of schedule. Embedded below is a holiday-themed message from It‘s official Twitter account and, well, let’s just say it may put you off your appetite.

Arriving just in time for Thanksgiving, this .gif sees Pennywise the Dancing Clown manifest on the reflection of a carving knife – yellow eyes glinting, mouth gaping – and just like that, poof, It disappears from view. Perhaps what’s more disturbing about New Line’s timely tweet is the caption it’s attached to: “You’ll bloat too.” A nod to the impending food coma pandemic that »

Has Battlefront II Solved The Mystery Of Rey’s Parents Ahead Of The Last Jedi?

1 hour ago

Who are Rey’s parents, exactly? Will Luke Skywalker wield a lightsaber come December? Should we class the porgs as friends, or food?

These are just some of the burning questions we have going into the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But if a new report from Screen Rant is to be believed, the single-player campaign of Battlefront II may be hiding a major story clue in plain sight.

This is by no means the first time that Dice’s licensed sequel has been thrust under the microscope – its storyline of Iden Versio fighting back against the Rebel Alliance is considered canon, after all – after players conjured up a theory that essentially traced Luke’s journey to Ahch-To.

Fast forward to now, and the pendulum has swung back in the direction of Rey’s parentage, arguably the most pressing question of the lot, with Screen Rant asserting that »

Chewie Backhands A Porg In Latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi Promo

1 hour ago

It’s not wise to upset a Wookiee, and one lively little porg learns that the hard way in the latest promo for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Nipping at the heels of today’s international stingers, in which Rey struggled to contain her newfound abilities – much to the horror of a curious Luke Skywalker – this all-new preview ends on a lighter note, as we see Chewbacca backhand a porg in order to regain control of the Millennium Falcon.

For those of you who have been keeping up with The Last Jedi‘s trailer campaign, this frankly hilarious shot is awfully similar to the one where a porg echoes Chewie’s cry, as the Falcon soars through a shimmering cave on the planet Crait. Said to be the home of an old outpost once used by the Rebel Alliance – not to mention those crystal foxes (Aka vulptexs), which wouldn’t »

Justice League’s Final Scene Leaks With Hans Zimmer Score

2 hours ago

Many elements of Justice League proved controversial, and towards the top of that list is Danny Elfman’s score. Some fans are pleased that the legendary superhero movie composer was invited back to provide the soundtrack for the DC team-up film, even peppering his work with the likes of John Williams’ 1978 Superman theme and his own 1989 Batman theme. However, others have reacted strongly to Elfman’s appointment, feeling that his style strays too far away from the sound of Hans Zimmer and Junkie Xl, who have scored previous Dceu entries.

For those who would have loved to have heard Zimmer’s score over Justice League‘s key moments, Twitter user CinematicEx has given us a taste of what that would be like. On top of a leaked copy of the movie’s final scene, Zimmer’s awesome Man of Steel theme is played.

I cucked Warner Bros so here it is again! »

Brooding Fan Poster For Deathstroke Makes Room For Jason Todd

2 hours ago

Jensen Ackles as Jason Todd?

We can see it. As a matter of fact, we’ve already heard it, as the Supernatural mainstay initially voiced the role for Batman: Under The Red Hood back in 2010. But even now, seven whole years later, DC fans are still calling on Warner Bros. to cast Jensen Ackles in a live-action interpretation of Red Hood.

And though it may never come to be, a DeviantArt user by the name of ‘Wandambatha’ has produced a dark and gloomy poster for Deathstroke, the recently-announced spinoff movie that has Gareth Evans (The Raid) and Joe Manganiello attached to direct and headline, respectively.

If the stars align, Manganiello’s Slade Wilson is primed for a big, big future in the DC Extended Universe, though Justice League‘s middling box office performance will surely have Warner Bros. thinking twice about future instalments in its shared franchise. Either way, this »

Star Wars: Mark Hamill Shares Thanksgiving Tribute To The Late, Great Carrie Fisher

2 hours ago

The Skywalker twins have been a cornerstone of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars franchise for more than 40 years, but come December, The Last Jedi will effectively close the book on Luke and Leia’s star-crossed story, as Carrie Fisher is, sadly, no longer with us.

And while the Powers That Be initially flirted with the idea of resurrecting the actress for Episode IX – think of how Grand Moff Tarkin was brought back from the grave in time for Rogue One – Lucasfilm’s bigwigs soon scrapped those tentative plans, meaning Star Wars: The Last Jedi will signal Leia’s final appearance in the Skywalker saga.

It’ll be a bittersweet finale, too, given writer-director Rian Johnson vowed to write her out of the story, rather than killing off the Resistance General a la Han Solo. Mind you, Johnson has so far been coy about a potential Skywalker reunion taking place in The Last Jedi, »

Doctor Who Fans In The UK Can See The Christmas Special Early

3 hours ago

We’re now just over a month away from December 25th, and you know what that means – Doctor Who is almost back on our screens!

This year’s yuletide episode is more special than most, though, and that’s due to a bunch of reasons. For one, it sees the return of the First Doctor (as played by Harry Potter‘s David Bradley) as the original Time Lord teams up with his Twelfth self. As well as supporting roles for outgoing companion Pearl Mackie and Who stalwart Mark Gatiss, the special – titled “Twice Upon A Time” – will also be Peter Capaldi’s final bow in the lead role. As you surely know, Jodie Whittaker is set to takeover as the Thirteenth Doctor, with her first scene dropping at the end of the episode.

If you can’t wait until December 25th for this special treat, you might just be in luck, »

Jeremy Piven Facing More Sexual Harassment Allegations

3 hours ago

Jeremy Piven has been reeling under a stream of accusations of sexual harassment and assault over the past few weeks. Earlier in the month, reality TV star Ariane Bellamar explained how the actor sexually assaulted her during the filming of Entourage, cornering her in his trailer where he, according to Bellamar, “forcibly fondled my breasts & bum.”

This was followed by Longmire actress Cassidy Freeman writing on Instagram: “I know what you did and attempted to do to me when I was far too young. That I know. And you know it too. Unless there were so many of us, that you can’t remember. I hope from now on, you keep it in your pants and you never get to do it again.”

Now, in the most shocking account yet, Anastasia Taneie, a woman who worked as an extra on Entourage, has come forth with allegations that the actor “forcibly »

Jason Momoa Details One Justice League Deleted Scene Featuring Aquaman And Diana

4 hours ago

When one looks back on Justice League‘s trailer campaign, it becomes clear that Warner Bros. cut a lot of scenes in the build-up to November 17th.

Hell, some fans have even taken it upon themselves to launch a petition calling for Zack Snyder’s edition, one that’s purportedly “much longer” and teeming with cameos, to be released on home video. It’s since collected more than 100,000 signatures, which goes to show that when it comes to Justice League, that fabled director’s cut is no laughing matter. Indeed, if you’re curious, a ton of alleged deleted scenes leaked onto the interwebs just this morning, including one in which Cyborg learns to fly.

Now, Jason Momoa has peeled back the curtain just a little bit more to describe a deleted scene featuring Diana Prince and his Arthur Curry.

While chatting to Rajeev Masand (via ComicBook.com), Momoa spoke about his history with Aquaman, »

Friday The 13th Helmer Reveals His Insane Pitch For A Jason Lives Follow-Up

4 hours ago

Almost 30 years ago, director Tom McLoughlin brought Jason Voorhees back from the brink for the appropriately titled sequel, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. But it turns out McLoughlin initially planned for a follow-up back in ’86, and let’s just say things got weird.

While appearing on the latest episode of Post Mortem (with a tip of the hat to Bloody Disgusting), Tom McLoughlin spoke to fellow horror director Mick Garris about his proposed Jason Lives sequel, and how it would’ve drafted comedy duo Cheech and Chong (!) into the equation.

As McLoughlin recalls down below, this idea came into being soon after producer Frank Mancuso Jr. discovered that New Line held the screen rights to Freddy Krueger, thereby nixing any potential crossover with A Nightmare on Elm Street at the time.

[Producer] Frank Mancuso Jr. came to me… he wanted me to do another film after we did [Jason Lives]. He said, »

Zack Snyder’s Deleted Justice League Scenes Leak Online

5 hours ago

These days, every big budget comic book movie is met with speculation about the amount of “studio interference” involved in production, but with Justice League, this speculation is augmented by the question of where director Zack Snyder’s work ends, and where the additional material and reshoots of Joss Whedon begins.

This is because Snyder had to depart the project after filming had ended, and Whedon – who had already been working on the script – was drafted in to handle post-production and reshoots. Producer Charles Roven subsequently conceded that the theatrical release consisted of about 15-20% Joss Whedon footage, but we suspect that might be underselling it a bit.

Now, six days on from release, and fans are already petitioning Warner Bros. for a Director’s Cut – that online petition has so far garnered more than 100,000 signatures – while Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, believes there is enough leftover footage to make a second movie. »

Here’s What X-23 May Look Like As All-New Wolverine

5 hours ago

Between them, 20th Century Fox, James Mangold (Logan) and comic book scribe Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok) are dreaming up a spinoff movie for X-23, the young mutant brought to life with real intensity by the up-and-coming Dafne Keen.

It’s still gestating in the formative stages of development, mind you, given Fox only made the project official late last month, but thanks to concept artist Masaolab (via ComicBook.com), we now have a sneak peek at what Dafne Keen may look like as “All-New Wolverine.”

Kitted out in full X-Men gear, this concept art is something special, as it imagines Laura/X-23 donning the adamantium claws as Wolverine’s one true successor. Loosely based on the aesthetic of Tom Taylor’s comic book series, below you’ll see Keen in action as X-23, who appears to be smashing her way through some sort of concrete wall. In addition, there’s »

John Boyega Says The Porgs Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Can Be “Really Freaky”

5 hours ago

What are porgs, exactly?

That’s a very good question. For one, they’re the flightless, bug-eyed avians that are native to Ahch-To, the oceanic planet on which Luke Skywalker first comes into contact with Rey. But are they food, or friends?

It’s a conundrum that has stirred up heated debate within the Star Wars community, and we fully expect that conversation to roll over until The Last Jedi‘s release on December 15th. But as part of its ongoing coverage, Entertainment Weekly has today unveiled the closest thing to a porg investigation as we’re likely to get, and it turns out John Boyega (Finn) isn’t all that fussed on Ahch-To’s furry critters.

I just remember doing some stuff and seeing a lot of porgs around. And they are interesting, but for me, I had a love/hate relationship with them. They’re very, very cute, »

Joss Whedon Directed This Key Batman Scene In Justice League

These days, every big budget comic book movie is met with speculation about the amount of “studio interference” involved in production, but with Justice League, this speculation is augmented by the question of where director Zack Snyder’s work ends, and where the additional material and reshoots of Joss Whedon begins.

Producer Charles Roven subsequently conceded that the theatrical release then consisted of about 15-20% Joss Whedon footage, but fans suspect that may be underselling it a bit.

Now, as the film defies expectation and actually gains momentum at the box office, after a somewhat muted start, actor Holt McCallany (star of the Netflix series Mindhunter), has shed some interesting light on his own involvement in the movie, and the »

New Justice League Art Reveals The Caped Crusader’s Batbike

6 hours ago

From the Flying Fox to the souped-up Batwing, it’s fair to say Bruce Wayne brought the big guns to Justice League.

But it seems the Caped Crusader’s arsenal was actually trimmed prior to release, as production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (via ComicBook.com) has posted some never-before-seen concept art of the Batbike. And whereas the Batpod was the hulking beast of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, what with its front-mounted cannons and plane-sized tires, this so-called Batbike is much more angular in its design, which is arguably inspired by the wings of a bat more than anything else. How very fitting.

Sadly, it never made the cut, and that’s really been the story of Justice League ever since Warner’s big-budget ensemble piece fell flat on November 17th. Six days on, and fans are now petitioning Warner Bros. for a director’s cut – that online petition has »

Stellar Fan Art Imagines Jude Law As Mar-Vell In The Captain Marvel Movie

6 hours ago

BossLogic is at it again.

With news that Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) is being courted for the Captain Marvel movie, BossLogic has produced a rather stellar piece that imagines The Young Pope actor as Doctor Walter Lawson (Aka Mar-Vell).

He is, in a nutshell, the mentor figure for Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who is imbued with superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight soon after her DNA is infused with that of an extra-terrestrial. Now that’s what I call a close encounter.

As for BossLogic’s beautiful rendering, the prolific concept artist has gone for a more classic-inspired look while creating Jude Law’s Mar-Vell. In the comics, that character is often portrayed in military garb, or as a high-ranking Kree soldier, though without any official details to consult, it’s impossible to gauge the direction Marvel will eventually take. Still, if nothing else, »

Four International TV Spots For The Last Jedi Highlight Rey And The Returning C-3Po

7 hours ago

The Lucasfilm marketing machine is really beginning to fire on all cylinders.

With little over three weeks until D-day, the Powers That Be have dropped four – count ’em, four – international spots for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and they each show Rey wrangling with her newfound abilities.

Having made contact with the wayward Luke Skywalker on Ahch-To, The Last Jedi is all about Rey gaining a better understanding of the Force – the light side, the dark side, and that all-important balance between the two – though Luke is wary that her unbridled power will lead her down a dark and dangerous road, from which there is no return.

And you can hardly blame him, given he watched Ben Solo (Aka Kylo Ren) reduce his Jedi Academy to ash and rubble all those years ago. Rey is adamant that she won’t succumb to the dark side (“Kylo failed you, I won »

Does This Justice League Easter Egg Set Up Gotham City Sirens?

18 hours ago

Justice League might not be the hit that Warner Bros. were no doubt hoping it would be, but there really is much for fans to love in the movie – no one can deny that. As it brings together six of the DC universe’s biggest names, there’s a lot of history to draw from and, while it doesn’t have much time to do that in its surprisingly lean 120 minute runtime, it tries its best to call back to a few classic comic book arcs and characters, as well as paying homage to previous DC pics that have come before.

Those who’ve seen it will know that a fair bit of Justice League takes place in Gotham and the filmmakers don’t miss the opportunity to squeeze in a few references to Batman’s friends and foes along the way. For example, we get Alfred’s lament about the dangerous threat of Steppenwolf. »

Nightwing Director Promises A Completely Different Take On The Character

19 hours ago

Knowing how broad the horizon is when it comes to DC films said to be arriving in theaters over the course of the next few years, we’ll be bold in saying that the movie we’re most looking forward to in a post-Justice League world may very well be Nightwing. Sure, we still love Batman himself, but we’ve grown quite accustomed to seeing him on the big screen and, let’s face it, a picture focused squarely on the Boy Wonder grown up is long, long overdue.

Luckily, it sounds like Warner Bros. have found the right guy to sit in the director’s chair, that being Chris McKay. Having already made the studio some serious dough with The Lego Batman Movie, the filmmaker looks to continue his stay in Gotham City. Truth be told, we were a bit concerned as to whether he was the man for the job at first, »

6 Major Things Justice League Changed From The Comics

20 hours ago

The world was introduced to the first iteration of the Justice League back in March 1960 in The Brave and the Bold #28, and since then, the superhero team has become one of the most beloved properties in comic book history. Although individual members of the League have been adapted to film and television since the group’s conception, Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s recent pic is the first time that DC Comics’ greatest heroes have come together on the big screen.

Surprisingly, with five decades worth of source material, the biggest influence on Justice League comes from the New 52 reboot of the title, which kicked off in 2011. Written by Geoff Johns, the storyline saw Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman and Green Lantern come together to face Darkseid and his army of Parademons – which no single hero could have tackled alone.

When it comes to Justice League the movie, »
