0

The latest promo for War for the Planet of the Apes highlights Caesar’s role as not only the ape leader but also as a father. We’re less than one month away from the third installment in 20th Century Fox’s rebooted Planet of the Apes trilogy hitting theaters, and the studio has kicked its marketing campaign into high gear, with the final trailer having released only a few weeks ago and promos beginning to flood the airwaves as well as television screens.

Rupert Wyatt launched the rebooted series six years ago with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, though he opted not to return for the sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which ended up being helmed by Cloverfield director Matt Reeves. Although Reeves’ upcoming sequel to his critically acclaimed ...

Team Thor - Chris Hemsworth Flex

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a plethora of stars who make regular appearances in non-Marvel films, but according to Chris Hemsworth, it’s “illegal” for them to take DC roles. As long as Disney/Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC Films are making movies, there will continue to be some sense of rivalry with the fans, even if it’s debunked by the franchise figureheads. While studio heads may take the approach that iron sharpens iron, fans have oftentimes make it seem as though people have to choose between which universe to pledge their loyalty to. That is definitely not reality for fans as they can see as ...

Thor: Ragnarok Will Not Feature an Appearance By Thor’s Roommate

Team Thor favorite Darryl (Daley Pearson) will not make an appearance in Thor: Ragnarok. The absence of Thor from Captain America: Civil War was sorely lamented by Thor fans, so Marvel decided to make it up to them by creating a pair of short films that showed what Thor was up to while most of the rest of the Avengers were busy fighting each other at an airport. These Team Thor shorts showed everyone’s favorite hammer-wielding Asgardian chilling, having lunch with Bruce Banner, moving in with a regular-guy roommate named Darryl, and dealing with everyday problems like paying rent (something that is apparently very complicated to someone from ...

Rick Moranis Michael Jai White Chucky

These days, there are a lot of high-quality, well-regarded films that skip a theatrical release and go straight to on-demand and/or a streaming service. We don’t tend to automatically write off films that make their debut “at home” rather than in a theater anymore. However, there was a time when it was assumed that a movie that didn’t make a stop in the theaters first before coming to a home format simply wasn’t good enough.

The ’90s saw the first major introduction of “direct-to-video” movies, often abbreviated as DTV. The results were all over the map, with the average DTV title definitely lacking in budget and overall quality. Still, there were a ...

Marvel is Finally Revealing Who the Other Miles Morales Is

Spider-Men Marvel Comics

Marvel plans to reveal the identity of the other Miles Morales, a plot point from the 2012 series Spider-Men. At the end of the first Spider-Men miniseries, Peter returned from an adventure in the Ultimate universe, he looked up the younger hero to see who he was in his own universe — and was shocked to see who it was. Unfortunately, that’s where the first Spider-Men story left off. Spider-Men II is written by Brian Michael Bendis, and illustrated by Sara Pichelli and Justin Ponsor.

Given that this new limited series once again teams Peter and Miles together, Marvel is obviously dangling the identity reveal to grab fans’ attention. And it seems to be working. ...
