Turns out, things are going quite well and McFarlane sounds confident as ever. Here's what he had to say about it.

"Two days ago, I sent off the last of Blumhouse's notes, so we're going to move forward with budgeting, so we'll know how much money we need. We'll likely put that money together in short order, because a hundred people want to give me money, and I've got lots in my pocket. Once we put the money together, we'll go to Hollywood and start selling it as a pre-distribution deal that would »

5 hours ago

Florida has a United Stated senator who has flown on the Space Shuttle, and now congressional candidate from Miami, Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, claims that she has been to outer space as well, but she wasn't brought there by Nasa. Rodriguez Aguilera claims that a crew of aliens abducted her when she was a child and that the extraterrestrials taught her a lot about Earth, which might just make her the best republican woman for the job. 59-year-old Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera is an entrepreneur running to replace retiring Miami Republican Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Lion King Easter Egg Discovered in New Black Panther Trailer

5 hours ago

With all of the excitement surrounding Avengers: Infinity War coming out next year, it's been a little easy to forget that Marvel has some other irons in the fire for 2018. Most notably, Black Panther is set to arrive in February and Marvel Studios has just released a brand new, full-length trailer for the movie, which is completely awesome. And, in a bit of an unexpected turn, the new Black Panther trailer seems to contain a very cool Easter egg for Disney's The Lion King.

Shortly after the second Black Punter trailer debuted online, the UrbanNoize2 Twitter account posted some side-by-side shots of the new Black Panther trailer next to some shots from the animated classic The Lion King. The resemblance is a bit uncanny and is either a very cool, deliberate homage from director Ryan Coogler, or a happy accident. It seems a little more like the former but, either way, »

6 hours ago

The superhero genre is evolving. In recent years, there have been tons of comic book movies hitting the big screen and, while audiences are still turning up, the genre will need to start doing some new things in order to keep it feeling fresh. That is exactly what Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) is going to do with The New Mutants, which is going to be a straight-up horror movie set within the X-Men universe. Now, he's revealed that New Mutants will be a trilogy of horror movies, all with their own unique feel.

The director spoke with IGN recently in honor of the first teaser trailer for The New Mutants arriving online. The trailer leans heavily into the horror angle. Truthfully, if the movie didn't have "mutants" in the title, people likely wouldn't even know it was an X-Men movie. Here's what Josh Boone had to say »

It's been four years since Thor: The Dark World hit theaters. And the Thor trilogy ends with next month's Thor: Ragnarok. A mystery surrounding one of the characters has finally been solved. Kind of.

7 hours ago

Carrie Fisher has been a beacon of hope for many who couldn't speak up for themselves out of shame or fear and she continues to do so even after her death. One of Fisher's close friends, screenwriter Heather Ross, recently told a radio station about her own experiences with sexual misconduct in Hollywood while stating that Carrie Fisher took it upon herself to exact revenge on the Academy Award winning Hollywood producer in Ross' honor. The way in which Fisher threatened the producer falls in line with her strength as well as her sense of humor.

Heather Ross called into a Tucson, Arizona radio station to talk about the Sony executive that sexually harassed her back in 2000. The terrible story begins like many of the stories surrounding Harvey Weinstein. Ross explained the encounter in vivid detail, stating that the high powered producer molested her while she was in his parked car. »

9 hours ago

Remember The Pussycat Dolls? Former Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones claims that the group was a front for a prostitution ring and the singers were all passed around and abused by high level music executives.

Annabelle 2 Crosses Huge Horror Milestone at the Box Office

10 hours ago

It (no pun intended) has been an absolutely outstanding year for horror movies. Not only has there been an unusual amount of quality thrillers getting a wide release, but the majority of them have been crushing it at the box office. One such movie is Annabelle 2, which has officially crossed the $300 million mark at the global box office. That makes it one of the biggest hits of the year for any studio, at least where profitability is concerned.

According to Box Office Mojo, Annabelle: Creation, with a few additional box office dollars from around the world over the weekend, now has a grand total of $301.4 million worldwide. The movie is really slowing down, as it's been out since early August, but that is a pretty significant milestone for this particular movie. Since New Line and director David F. Sandberg managed to make the movie for a reported $15 million production budget, »

Anne Frank Halloween Costume Ignites Outrage Amongst Jewish Community

11 hours ago

Is Anne Frank an appropriate Halloween costume for your young child, be it a boy or girl? The Jewish community doesn't believe so, and they've made their voice heard. We're only a few weeks from Halloween and the clock is ticking to find the perfect costume to wear for that Halloween party. We've seen a slew of costumes that people found to be offensive this year, including a "sexy" version of Eleven from the hit Netflix series Stranger Things. Many took offense that the costume was sexualizing a minor while some compared it to the sexualizing of Hermione from Harry Potter and claimed that it really wasn't that big of a deal. But a new costume has come out and polarized social media again, but for an entirely different reason. The new Anne Frank costume for girls has been pulled due to the controversy surrounding the idea to even produce »

Kylo Ren's Reaction Video for The Last Jedi Trailer Is the Best Yet

12 hours ago

Kylo Ren is back with some pretty interesting thoughts on the latest "raw" trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Back in 2016, Ben sat down to watch the Rogue One trailers, and his reactions were pretty spot on. But this movie actually has him in it, so there's a lot more at stake this time around. A few of the big takeaways that Kylo Ren has include just how many times the word raw is used, along with some of the obvious deceptions going on within the footage.

The video begins with Kylo Ren loading up the trailer to watch it and then announcing that he's just as excited for The Last Jedi because it's the future and he doesn't know what the outcome is going to be yet. Snoke begins his monologue and naturally, Ren believes that he's talking about him, agreeing with Snoke's description of "raw, untamed power. »

Gambit Movie Getting Candra as Main Villain?

15 October 2017 5:40 PM, PDT

20th Century Fox's Gambit is finally moving forward after the studio set the Gambit release date for February 14, 2019, roughly the same release frame that the record-breaking Deadpool was released in last year. With production starting at some point next year, a new rumor has surfaced, claiming that the X-Men villain Candra The Benefactress a.k.a. Red Death, will be featured in the Gambit movie, although that has not been confirmed by anyone at the studio. It's possible that the inclusion of Candra can lead to the introduction of a group known as The Externals in the studio's X-Men universe.

In the X-Men comics, Candra the Benefactress was a telepathic villain who control two different superhero guilds based in New Orleans, Thieves Guild, which Remy LeBeau/Gambit (Channing Tatum) belongs to, and the Assassin's Guild, which Bella Donna belongs to. Candra grants members of both guilds their powers via her own telepathic powers. »
