At the midseason mark, Hannibal has a moment of readjustment, switching gears almost effortlessly to transition into the future — three years down the line, and Will Graham is experiencing his Godfather moment. Just when he thought he was out, Jack Crawford pulls him back in to investigate the Tooth Fairy, a name our new killer despises, as “The Great Red Dragon” is more to his demented liking.

‘Everest’ Featurette Reveals Intense Conditions Behind the Scenes

by Britt Hayes July 25, 2015 @ 1:55 PM
With more and more big budget films relying heavily on CG, studios have been taking care to release behind-the-scenes featurettes and interviews promoting real locations and sets. A recent promo for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation focused on Tom Cruise performing his own dangerous stunts, while details on Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s The Revenant reveal a film that was shot as naturally and realistically (and excruciating for some) as possible. In a similar vein, a new promo for Everest highlights the intense conditions endured by the cast and crew on set.

One of the things that makes watching superhero films so fun is the incredible fiction involved. These films take scientific concepts beyond what’s possible, but both comic books and their big screen counterparts tend to find inspiration in real science. A new set of Fantastic Four featurettes compares the fantastical science fiction of the film with science fact, with the help of renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.

Michael B. Jordan is undeniably one of our most engaging rising stars, proving the sheer force of his talent with his role in Fruitvale Station (and lest we forget, his earlier role on Friday Night Lights).

‘Gambit’ to Film This Fall, Casting Descriptions Reveal Character Details

by Britt Hayes July 25, 2015 @ 12:16 PM
Deadpool wasn’t the only character who wasn’t properly represented in X-Men Origins: Wolverine — Gambit was also fairly disappointing in that film, leading many fans to wonder if we’d ever see a decent version of the character on the big screen. We’re finally getting our wish with Channing Tatum in the role of the Cajun mutant, and new info on the film not only reveals that it will begin shooting this fall, but gives us some idea of the players involved.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ Star Charlie Hunnam Thinks Guillermo del Toro Should Use Less Robots, More Humans

by Britt Hayes July 24, 2015 @ 6:58 PM
While his honesty is quite admirable, perhaps Charlie Hunnam shouldn’t be biting the hand that feeds him — but that’s what he did in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. While discussing his upcoming role in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie (where he apparently plays a Knight who sells Levi’s jeans in catalogs), the conversation turned to effects, which then turned to Pacific Rim, which then led to Hunnam sticking his foot in his mouth and then trying unsuccessfully to remove it.
