Summer movie season starts a little earlier every year, and in 2017, it has consumed May, April, and even our beloved March. Logan will kick off the big-budget bonanza in the first weekend of March, and then cede the floor to the gargantuan Kong: Skull Island the weekend after. Even so, these two releases in particular inspire hope rather than dread when reflecting upon the studio-fronted franchise releases encroaching beyond their summer stomping grounds. All the previews have suggested that these two films will have something original to bring to the table, and the latest clip for Kong: Skull Island confirms that if nothing else, we’ll have some delectable character acting to enjoy.
We already know Avengers: Infinity War is going to be huge, with the current MCU arcs building toward a crossover event that promises to be the studio’s biggest yet — even bigger than Captain America: Civil War. According to previous comments made by directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Infinity War will feature dozens of characters from the Marvel universe, including Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. As for the rest of the lineup, we can only make educated guesses, but a new casting call may have spilled the beans.
Game of Thrones can be hard enough for fans to keep keep straight, but if ever six seasons of un-pronouncable names and changing alliances should stick, it’d be Samuel L. Jackson recapping the realm. Yes, it seems Jackson hates the Lannisters about as much as he hates Foggy Nelson, recapping the entirety of Game of Thrones in a new video.
So far, audiences haven’t flocked to Quentin Taratino’s latest film, The Hateful Eight, as they have with his last two films. Both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained grossed over $120 million, but The Hateful Eight looks like it will be lucky to get to $50 million. This despite the 70mm roadshow version that encouraged audiences to see the film in theaters. A large part of the disappointing box-office take so far, is due in no small part to opening up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens, aka the Biggest Movie of All-Time, but Tarantino is not backing off his latest movie, instead doubling down and moving forward with plans to mount a stage production of his latest movie in London and New York.
IMDB.com lists 159 acting credits for Samuel L. Jackson over a career that’s spanned more than 40 years. Jackson’s as versatile as he is prolific; though he’s likely best known for his action films and his flair for language (and especially profanity, his skills as a chameleon might be underrated. He’s made 160 films and television shows and looked like 160 wildly different people. Few actors seem to delight in the specifics of costuming, hair, and makeup as much as he does, and few have exhibited a wider array of hairstyles, facial hair, and wardrobes. From the earliest days of his career all the way up to next week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ nobody’s worn silver hair, a kilt, or exaggerated octopus-style eye makeup quite like Samuel L. Jackson. In honor of his great achievements in outlandish onscreen fashion, please enjoy this gallery spotlighting just a few of his many sartorial highlights.
We know that Tony Stark's Iron Man suit is powerful—when fully charged, it can lift over 100 tons—but, we probably didn't realize just how heavy it is. The original suit in the first ‘Iron Man’ movie weighed over 90 lbs. That's big, hot costume to have to act in all day. And, to think, it was almost not even Robert Downey, Jr. underneath all that armor. Find out which other actors made the cut, and a lot more, in the latest invincible installment of You Think You Know Movies!
After stops and starts and leaks and reversals, Quentin Tarantino’s 70mm Western ‘The Hateful Eight’ is now, finally, officially, definitively, happening. The Weinstein Company announced today that production has begun in Telluride, Colorado.
The ‘Big Game’ trailer sells a concept that rides a fine line between totally preposterous and incredible. What if Air Force One was shot down and the President’s escape pod landed in the isolated woods of Finland? What is the President, now pursued by terrorists, only had one ally? What if that one ally was a pre-teen boy armed with a bow? What if the President was played by Samuel L. Jackson? Yeah, ‘Big Game’ is a real movie and we still can’t decide if it’s too ludicrous or just ludicrous enough.
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
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
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 supe
