Yeah it is a little strange that a newly minted Oscar winner like Matthew McConaughey would be caught dead making television commercials for Lincoln cars. However, it did lead to a series of fake 'SNL' commercials featuring guest host Jim Carrey playing the 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'True Detective' star, so who are we to complain?
Perhaps you didn't hear the news that 'Gone Girl' contains nudity. Male nudity. Double male nudity, really, with various, ahem, appearances coming care of both Ben Affleck and Neil Patrick Harris. Affleck's appendages have already been the subject of some exhaustive essays, and far less attention has been paid to NPH's contributions. He's here to right that wrong.
If you even remotely follow the world of technology and video games, you've surely heard of the Oculus Rift, the virtual reality device that's poised to change the way people experience interactive media. Now, in a move that could be historical (or foolhardy), the indie science-fiction horror film 'Banshee Chapter' will be the first film available to watch on the Oculus.
Only those in attendance at New York Comic-Con 2014 got to see 'Agent Carter' kicking ass in the first footage from the 'Captain America' spinoff, but the latest addition to Marvel's new series has a 'Kick-Ass' history all her own. Fresh off the ends of 'Nikita' and 'How I Met Your Mother,' Lyndsy Fonseca has joined 'Agent Carter' in one of the last remaining regular roles.
'Sons of Anarchy' isn't the only FX heavy-hitter coming to an end in the next few months, as 'Justified''s Raylan Givens loads up one final round in the chamber for the sixth and final season. The first trailer of the final showdown between Boyd Crowder and Raylan has arrived, along with a drafty new teaser for 'The Americans' season 3 in early 2015!
Today we present a guest blog from Chris Nash, director of "Z is for Zygote," arguably the most twisted and gruesome short in the anthology film 'ABCs of Death 2', as well as a supercut of the greatest movie deaths from all 26 of the directors. We recently interviewed Nash and today he's stopped by to talk about his favorite movie death scene in movie history.
Only four episodes in, and 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' is already bringing in the big guns for its first crossover, and by big guns, we of course mean the badass Ms. Felicity Smoak. The Arrow's best gal will take a trip to Central City next week for "Going Rogue," encountering the chilly Captain Cold in the process, and we've got the first photos!
Although it doesn't hit theaters until next month, we can tell you that 'The Babadook' is one of the best horror movies of 2014 and that director Jennifer Kent is someone you will want to keep your eyes on for the foreseeable future. However, before her film freaked everyone out at Sundance and Fantastic Fest, Kent made a short film titled 'Monster,' which acted as a warm-up to her first feature gig. If you want to get a taste of 'The Babdook' and have already seen the trailer, this is the next logical place to go.
The younger stars of the 'Harry Potter' franchise spent over a decade of their kid lives filming the wildly popular film series, which means, yeah, they probably got to know each other pretty well. It's just like regular school! Things probably got wild! There were wands and stuff! Rest assured, you had zero idea how wild things really got for the students of Hogwarts. Brace yourselves.
While it's pretty unlikely that we'll be getting an official sequel to 'Dredd,' the world of Mega-City One lives on in animated form thanks in part to 'Dredd' producer Adi Shankar, who backed the new online animated series 'Judge Dredd: Superfiend' as a thank you to fans. This new web series might not be quite what you're expecting, but that's not a bad thing. Fans of the character and his origins should be plenty delighted about the twisted and weird look and tone of this series.
