Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Sonic the Hedgehog‘s release date of February 28 in China is officially delayed by Paramount, due to the mounting concerns over the coronavirus. The 2020 film is based on the extremely popular video game franchise produced by Sega. Sony Pictures tried to develop a film adaptation back in 2014 but was unsuccessful, and Paramount acquired the rights in 2017. The film stars Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as the voice of Sonic, along with James Marsden (Westworld) and Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty) as the villainous Dr. Ivo Robotnik/Dr. Eggman, Sonic’s arch nemesis.

The film got off to a rocky start after the first trailer received supremely negative reactions to Sonic’s design, and the film was delayed three months in order to fully redesign the character...

Birds Of Prey

We’ve been waiting and waiting, and we finally got some reviews of Birds of Prey, featuring Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad spun off into a totally new DC Comics movie. And, surprise surprise, the reviews are very positive.

Although some of the reviews were a bit mixed, most of the early tweets out of the first press screening call it an “absolute blast” with a great soundtrack, a memorable Margot Robbie performance, and some surprisingly intense violence. Several people compared it to the Deadpool movies, both in terms of the tone and the fact that it’s rated R (!) and breaks the fourth wall.

Birds of Prey opens in theaters on February 7. We’ll have our own film critic’s full review of the movie in the middle of next week...

Between Keanu Reeves and Tom Cruise, the middle-aged action star has definitely been on the rise in the last few years. Heck even “over-the-hill” talents like Liam Neeson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone are still going strong in Hollywood. But, the most impressive has to be Tom Cruise. Come on, the man hung off the side of a plane and scaled the Burj Khalifa for Mission: Impossible. Even Will Smith took inspiration from the actor. In the words of the Bad Boys For Life star:

But, seriously: How does Tom Cruise do it? The actor is 57-years-old and always pulling off the most mind-blowing stunts! Of course, he’s had time to work up to it throughout the six Mission: Impossible movies and other stunt-heavy flicks, such as learni...

The Fantastic Four are coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We don’t know when and we don’t know how, but the Fantastic Four are coming. Marvel Studios President and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige has said as much. And when the rebooted Fantastic Four arrives in the MCU, it will need a new group of actors to portray Marvel’s first family and fans have plenty of ideas about who could rock the “4” on their chest. See how Zac Efron could look as the Fantastic Four’s Human Torch below:

First things first: The speculation and random Ecto Cooler ads were correct. The next Ghostbusters movie is titled Ghostbusters: Afterlife. That’s been officially confirmed by a new article in Vanity Fair, which includes the first concrete plot details for the movie, along with a bunch of new images of the movie — including the one above of the Ghostbusters’ signature vehicle, the Ecto-1, tearing through a cornfield.

While a cornfield seems like a strange setting for a distinctly New York franchise, the new film apparently takes place in “a small town in Oklahoma,” on a farm that the main characters — Callie, played by Carrie Coon, and her two kids Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) and Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) —...

Dracula From the Sherlock Creators?

Dracula From the Sherlock Creators?

Bram Stoker’s Dracula was not an instant hit in 1897 when it was first published, despite positive reviews. But the figure of the vampire himself has since become a cultural figure with a status few others have achieved. Consequently, there have been an enormous amount of stage and screen adaptations of the Dracula novel, or featuring the character throughout the 20th century and into the 21st.

And now, Sherlock creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have made their own adaptation of Stoker’s novel, starring Claes Bang as the eponymous bloodsucker. It got us wondering what kind of Dracula we might be in for this time...

Infinity War Reunites Hulk and Black Widow

A new deleted scene from Avengers: Infinity War finds Hulk and Black Widow reuniting. Bruce Banner and Hulk had some problems during the course of the movie. The Infinity Saga was recently released and is proving to be difficult for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans to track down. It is available from third-party sellers for an astronomical amount, so hopefully Marvel Studios will either make more, or at the very least, release a version that is not limited edition so that all fans can check out the deleted scenes from the MCU.

The new deleted scene from Infinity War does not have any sound, but one can see that Hulk was originally going to be in the movie...

The Mandalorian, which contains a dramatic Star Wars-universe spoiler in the first episode and will be available the moment Disney Plus starts, has been as heavily promoted as a traditional feature film, with billboards, 30-second television commercials, radio spots, and digital ads.
