The Destroyer 08-09-2014 06:47 PM

And it's all been downhill from there.

XL 08-10-2014 06:53 PM

Would Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind be the film to feature the most actors/actresses to appear in comic book movies that wasn't a comic book movie itself?

Jim Carrey (The Riddler, Batman Forever)
Tom Wilkinson (Carmine Falcone, Batman Begins)
Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson, Spider-Man trilogy)
Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk, Avengers)
Elijah Wood (Kevin, Sin City)

Corporate CockSnogger 08-10-2014 09:01 PM

It'd probably be a film with a huge ensemble cast. After a few minutes of thought I came up with

American Hustle (5)
Christian Bale (Batman)
Bradley Cooper (Guardians of the Galaxy)
Amy Adams (Man of steel)
Jennifer Lawrence (X-men)
Jeremy Renner (Avengers)

Lotr (6)
Ian McKellan (X-men)
Elijah Wood (Sin City)
Liv Tyler (The Incredible Hulk)
Dominic Monaghan (X-men origins)
Karl Urban (Dredd)
Hugo Weaving (Captain America)

Pulp Fiction (6)
John Travolta (The Punisher)
Sam Jackson (Avengers etc)
Bruce Willis (Sin City)
Uma Thurman (Batman and Robin)
Tim Roth (The Incredible Hulk)
Christopher Walken (Batman Returns)

Good trivia question though

Corporate CockSnogger 08-10-2014 09:06 PM

Oh and I guess Inception has like the whole Batman cast

The Destroyer 08-11-2014 04:02 AM

Inception gets nudged to 7 thanks to Ellen Page.

XL 08-11-2014 01:32 PM

Nice work, gents.

ESotSM has like a cast of 10 people though. That's a pretty high percentage.

Next film in the Resident Evil series called Resident Evil: The Final Chapter got pushed back from a possible 2015 release to now a 2016 release date.


Resident Evil film star Milla Jovovich was all set to fly to Cape Town, South Africa to film the newest iteration in the franchise, but something unexpectedly came up. She and her director husband found out that they are expecting their second child, and "after a lot of discussion" the decision was made to put the movie on hold -- you know, since she'd have to do stunts and a lot of physical work.

12 days of Simpsons.

Dark-Slicer Diago 08-21-2014 09:09 AM

I wish I could see them all, but I can't since I haven't had FXX in little over a year now.

Juan 08-23-2014 02:58 AM

I cleared a bunch of space on my DVR for the Simpsons marathon only to find that I no longer get the FXX channel :-\

ClockShot 08-29-2014 05:04 PM

A&E cancelled Longmire after 3 seasons. Channel is now dead to me.

Hopefully Netflix picks it up.

The forthcoming movie based on Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series has been delayed a year into 2016, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Originally set for an August 7, 2015 release, the movie has suffered multiple script rewrites and “scheduling issues” says the report.

Set to star Michael Fassbender and possibly Robert Downey Jr, it was originally confirmed way back in 2012.

So apparently a sci-fi live action Tetris film is currently being made.


Mega entertainment company Threshold Entertainment has the green light from The Tetris Company to create a live-action Tetris movie. That alone is crazy. But Larry Kasanoff and Jimmy Ienner are planning on turning the puzzle game into a "sci-fi epic." Yeah.

"Everyone knows that Tetris is one of the best known, most beloved brands in the world," said Kasanoff. "What everyone doesn't know yet is this epic sci-fi story that we’re going to tell. That's what's really exciting."

So, I'm thinking some sort of Maze Runner clone. A bunch of people trapped in the bottom of a wall with falling pieces. If they don't make lines they are crushed to death.

Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley) not returning to Yahoo's Community season six. To take care of her sick father.

Jonathan Banks also not returning due to Better Call Saul.

7 Surprising Things You Never Knew About The 'Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers'


Here are seven surprising things you never knew about (what should have been) your favorite show.

Warning: Some of these are huge bummers.

Amy Jo Johnson Is A Record Setter

Starting off with a positive fact, everyone's favorite Pink Ranger Amy Jo Johnson has the distinction of being the longest-serving female Power Ranger, appearing in 137 episodes before she left the series.

People Really, Really Loved The Green Ranger

Jason David Frank was everyone's favorite, the Green Ranger (and later, the White Ranger). However, he wasn't supposed to stay on the show for very long. Frank's arc on the series was only supposed to last a handful of episodes, but fans demanded he be kept on. Frank ended up staying with the Power Rangers franchise for years, and ended up appearing in 217 episodes during different iterations of the show.

The Secret Of The Yellow Ranger

Did you ever notice how there were two female Power Rangers, but only one of them had a skirt? That's because the American show used Japanese Power Rangers footage for the fight scenes, and in the original show, the Yellow Ranger was a man. That's why the Pink Ranger's outfit has a skirt, and the Yellow Ranger's doesn't.

A Star Was Born

Bryan Cranston, best known for his award-winning turn as Walter White on Breaking Bad, actually worked for Saban Entertainment, and provided voices for a number of the monsters on the show. The Blue Ranger, Billy Cranston, is named after the star.

The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Might Not Have Been LGBT Friendly

Actor David Yost played the Blue Ranger for hundreds of episodes, until one day he just walked off the set, never to return. The reason? According to Yost, who came out as gay a few years later, it was because the producers and director of MMPR allegedly hurled homophobic slurs at him all the time, until he just got so fed up with being harassed he quit. The producers have since responded to Yost's claims, saying the real reason was because the show didn't pay Yost what he asked for, and that it was Yost who refused to get along with the rest of the crew.

A Shocking Number Of Cast Members Have Died

MMPR might be cursed. Not only are a number of the show's performers dead, a lot of them died young - starting with Thuy Trang who played Trini Kwan, The Yellow Ranger. Trang tragically died in 2001 at the age of 27 when the car she was riding in with two of her friends lost control and drove into a cliff face before flipping multiple times. Trang's friends both survived, but she died from her injuries.

Bob Manahan, better known as the voice of Zordon in season 2, died in 2000 at the age of 48 when he suffered an heart aneurysm.

Also deceased: Erik Frank (Jason David Frank's brother who also played his character's brother on the show) died at 29 from "an unspecified illness."

Also: Eight others, including Machiko Soga, who played Rita Repulsa. Wow, this entry was sad.

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Is Censored In Malaysia

Why on earth would a fun kids show about bloodless monster fighting get banned anywhere? If you guessed, "Because it promotes violence," or, "It encouraged children to build giant robots," both of those are wrong.

It's because the Malaysian government thought it encouraged the use of hardcore drugs. Does that not make sense? Well, think about the title. Mighty MORPHIN' Power Rangers. Morphin' sounds like Morphine, which will get kids addicted to morphine, according to the Malaysian government.

The show's title was edited down to just Mighty Power Rangers, and the word was bleeped out when the Rangers said, "It's morphin' time!"

According to trade outlet Variety, Constantin Film—the German production house that’s been responsible for twelve years (so far) of Resident Evil cinematic plague being unleashed upon the world—is looking to expand their live-action take on Capcom’s series to serialized television once its film run comes to an end.
Would be based on the film's version of the RE universe and not the gaming series for main inspiration. Won't arrive until after the final film so late 2016 or 2017 as its earliest date possible.

Viz Media is currently making a manga comic series based on Resident Evil with the comic to act more as a prequel to Resident Evil 6 for those interested. Has a release date of November 18.

The upcoming Hitman film got delayed till August 2015 although no official reason was given by Fox International studio. Was originally planned to have an early 2015 release.

The supposed Minecraft film is rumored to be getting Shawn Levy as its director.

Minecraft may have found its director for the upcoming film -- yeah, that's a thing. Warner Bros. has apparently tapped Shawn Levy, the director of Night at the Museum -- he's currently in talks to join the project. Oh, and Night at the Museum 2, and the upcoming Night at the Museum 3. And he directed The Internship, which I watched on a plane once and somehow made the flight worse.

In addition to the previously announced Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory, Virginia Madsen, and Dennis Haysbert, Aleks Paunovic, Harley Morenstein, and Keegan Connor Tracey will join the Dead Rising film project.

Oh, and Rob Riggle was cast as Frank West. Love him or hate him, I can definitely see a little Frank West in Riggle -- especially considering the fact that he was on The Daily Show and is a retired marine. Perfect "I covered wars" and action movie potential.

The movie is called Dead Rising: Watchtower, and will be released straight to video, so don't expect a masterpiece however.

SlickyTrickyDamon 10-22-2014 02:47 AM

Rob Fucking Riggle!

New live-action Mortal Kombat series is currently in the works and meant to tie into next year's Mortal Kombat X game.


A live-action digital series is being created "in association" with Mortal Kombat X, Warner Bros. announced today.

Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros.' new division focusing on live-action and animated series for digital platforms, will produce the series. Few details are available about the project, which will "feature some of the franchise's most iconic characters as well as a new generation of fighters."

The new series will join the likes of live-action projects such as Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Legacy, which debuted in 2011, explores the characters of the original game.

Like Garfield, [Jim] Davis (Garfield creator) is a fan of lasagne. "Yeah, I love lasagne. I thought it would be funny to have a cat who likes lasagne but as it turns out, I hear from people all the time that their cats love lasagne." And he confessed that even though Jon loves Odie, too, Garfield is his favorite "because of the depth of their relationship. He confides in Garfield so much. and I think Jon may have a little masochistic problem. He enjoys the abuse that Garfield heaps up."

I have always wondered why Garfield hates Mondays when every day is pretty much the same for him, but Davis had the answer. "Garfield does not have a job, Garfield does not go to school and every day is the same. Nevertheless every Monday is just a reminder that his life is the same old, same old cycling again and for some reason even though his life is pretty much the same every day on Mondays specifically, awful things tend to happen to him physically."
And there ya go.
