Let's be honest: the last two 'Die Hard' movies were almost unwatchable. There's little Fox could do to get us excited for a 'Die Hard 6' at this point, but what little there is to do, they're at least trying to do. Early reports suggest that Fox is working on a 'Die Hard 6' story that would reunite John McClane (Bruce Willis) and Zeus Carver (Samuel L. Jackson), the co-stars of the last good 'Die Hard' movie.

Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will have plenty of pieces to pick up after the fallout of this past weekend's 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' apart from its own ongoing storyline, but at least one major star will be popping up sooner than we think. Having guested in the second episode, Samuel L. Jackson will return as Nick Fury in the May 13 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' finale, but what does it mean for the Marvel Universe going forward?
Whereas Tom Hanks' Captain Phillips talked, finessed, sweated and went into shock to rescue his crew, Chris Evans' Captain America jumps onto a hijacked boat from a helicopter without a parachute. His liberation of a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel captured by international terrorists involves flinging himself across the deck; a human pinball with terrorists as his easily neutralized bumpers. Make that a super-human pinball, because as much as Steve Rogers maintains his golly shucks good nature, he is, after all, a Marvel superhero and he's here to save the day in the most preposterous and camera-ready fashion that's possible. Welcome to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.
Last night's latest 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' episode "End of the Begining" officially kicked the series into high gear with the proper emergence of Deathlok, as well as a few fast-paced reveals, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get even busier with the release of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Last night planted quite a few seeds for the epic Cap sequel, and you can check out the first pieces of its 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' crossover right now!
We're much closer to seeing 'Captain America 2' (dubbed 'The Winter Soldier') than the anticipation might lead you to believe, and you'll finally get to see what many critics are already suggesting is Marvel's best movie to date come its April 4 premiere. To keep you somewhat satiated and to go along with your vast library of trailers, TV spots and behind-the-scenes footage, Marvel released a massive gallery with more than 60 new photos from 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
As Marvel ramps up its marketing for 'Captain America 2,' a new TV spot has hit the airwaves. While it does do well in teasing fans with never-before-seen footage of Chris Evans' upcoming turn as the Cap, it seemingly spoils a major moment from the movie. (Continue reading at your own risk.)
Released in 1996, 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' tells the story of Samantha, a mother and schoolteacher with amnesia, who recovers her memories and discovers she was once an assassin for the CIA. Directed by Renny Harlin, the film was written by Shane Black, who was at the time becoming one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood, thanks to his work on 'Lethal Weapon.' Black more recently wrote the screenplay for and directed 'Iron Man 3,' but 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' remains a cult classic. Eighteen years later, we revisit Geena Davis, Samuel L. Jackson and the rest of the cast, and see what they're up to now.
A few weeks back I was watching TV with friends who don't follow movies that closely. On came the ad for 'RoboCop.' They were baffled. “Who needs this?” they asked.
Forget that we were all old enough to remember the first one. This wasn't just defending our childhoods. If you want to step on a classic – and 'RoboCop' is something of a classic – you better come correct. What's this new one going to offer? The original's action and sly satire aren't dated. Who needs this?
I am afraid I must report that nobody needs this.
There are good days, there are bad days, and then there are days when you confuse Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne and find yourself at the mercy of an actor whose voice can make even the strongest man whimper in terror. This sounds like a joke, but it actually happened on live television, and since this is the internet, it will never go away and the news anchor who made the tragic error will never live it down.
When 'Thor: The Dark World' hits Blu-ray, DVD and 3D Combo Pack on February 25, Marvelites will be treated to an exclusive 'Captain America 2' preview, which goes behind the scenes of Cap's new venture to Washington, D.C. and will feature brand-new footage. Before you watch the featurette in the comfort of your own home, this highly anticipated look has made its way online.
