[WARNING: This interview contains SPOILERS for John Wick.]
Keanu Reeves has had a strange and eclectic career. From screwball comedy star in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure to indie darling in My Own Private Idaho to action star in Point Break, Speed, The Matrix, and Constantine, he’s made more career transitions than most actors could even dream of.
And yet his most recent films have lacked the success of some of his earlier work. 47 Ronin in particular was a major financial disappointment, making $150 million at the worldwide box office against a $175 million production budget.
Perhaps that’s why John Wick came as a bit of a surprise. When the trailer was released a while back, it was a huge hit across the Internet. From the premise to the visuals ...

The Walking Dead is arguably at the top of its game. The AMC series’ recent season 5 premiere debuted to its highest ratings ever, and it’s already been renewed for a sixth season, to no one’s surprise.
However, the show’s continued success with audiences doesn’t appear to be keeping its showrunners from taking a few risks. In fact, by the sound of it, The Walking Dead could be headed for a game-changing twist this season.
In an extensive interview with Details, star Andrew Lincoln discusses what fans can expect from season 5. Here’s what he had to say:
“I think the first three episodes are pretty much a body blow—three is an ...

Looking back, it seems that DC Comics fans are in for even more than they might’ve thought possible following the release of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. The new Superman story didn’t work for all fans, but its function as a launchpad for a potential Justice League movie universe was clear; and DC and Warner Bros. wasted little time in capitalizing on it. But there’s no mistaking what made it all possible: Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, which proved there was a real demand for serious superheroes.
The connective tissue between that trilogy and Man of Steel was evident: the story was concocted by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer, both of whom had ...

The first trailer for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" was originally set to debut during next week's episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.". Those plans went out the window though on Wednesday when a low-resolution copy of the trailer leaked.
Within a few hours of the leak, the marketing department at Marvel responded the right way by getting ahead of the train - they immediately released a high-definition version through their official channels, and even joked about the leak on Twitter.
It worked gangbusters, the trailer was reportedly viewed over 34.3 million times in the first 24 hours according to a just issued press release. That easily breaks the record of 20 million views in 24 hours held by another Marvel film - "Iron Man 3".
In the wake of events, will next week's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" episode still carry the same trailer? Turns out there will be more. In an official statement, Marvel says:
"Because we believe that the best way to say thanks is to give you more, we're delivering new Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron action to your TV sets, two weeks in a row.
Tune in to 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' this Tuesday, October 28 at 9pm ET on ABC to see an exclusive piece from 'Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron'. Then, on Tuesday, November 4th at 9pm ET on ABC, tune into 'Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop!' for another taste of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron - and much more."
Although comic fans may have been waiting for years to see a ‘faithful’ adaptation of Vertigo Comics icon John Constantine (after the 2005 Keanu Reeves film) in Justice League Dark, TV has once again proven to be a more appealing medium. With NBC’s Constantine bringing the supernatural side of the DC Comics/Vertigo universe to live-action, fans of the decades-long “Hellblazer” series star have their most faithful adaptation yet.
Some may already be dreaming of Constantine linking movie and TV, but the showrunners have wasted no time planting seeds for a larger universe of their own. The long term plan is unclear – especially given how much it’s changed already – but the pilot episode ...
