Disney had released its third Star Wars Rebels short in anticipation for its hour long premiere on October 3rd. Previous shorts have focused on the various members of the rebel force, one centering on an R2 unit, the other on Sabine, the Mandalorian Human. The third one now focuses on Zeb (voiced by Steven Blum), the team’s muscle. Like Sabine, Zeb is intersted in making Stormtroopers look bad, only not as flashy and more straight to the point.

China To Test Seat Sensors In Movie Theaters That Will Give Audiences An Excuse To Text During A Movie

movietalker

Okay, we’ve all heard stories about how people get mad at other members of the audience who text or call during a movie. It’s pretty inappropriate. They don’t like seeing a phone light casting a signal or listening to another person’s conversation. In fact the Alamo Drafthouse makes it a priority to let members of the audience know that cell phone use during a film is frowned upon by screening the infamous voicemail prior to every showing. Local theaters may use a toned down version of it simply by asking nicely, but at least theaters in the US are doing what they can to curb cell phone use during a movie.

Apparently China plays by a very different set of rules though. In fact, what they are testing will probably make anyone mad. Theaters in China are know testing a technology that will allow them to text their reactions during a movie, which will then be posted on screen. Because that is already a good idea.

The tagline for Luc Besson‘s Lucy is “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what she could do with 100%.” Now we’ve seen plenty of films explore the use of a character’s full potential. All of them had pretty interesting viral marketing campaigns, but what if a film took a completely different look at how a character used their brain or lack thereof.

Dumb and Dumber To is the long awaited sequel to the Farley Brothers’ 1994 film. Now we’ve seen plenty of parody posters, but this one is pretty funny considering it is mocking a film that prides itself on using 100% of their brain, hit the jump to check it out. [Read more...]

Godzilla 2 was inevitable. Once it became that box office hit on it’s first weekend, Legendary went to work on getting a sequel done. But then Gareth Edwards said he would be directing a Star Wars spinoff. Most thought that meant Edwards wouldn’t return to direct a sequel. However, Legendary Pics President Thomas Tull dropped by Comic-Con and presented a video of Edwards telling Hallh H he will be back to direct the sequel after he works on “small little sci-fi movie.”

But Tull ended that portion of a panel with a huge stinger, Godzilla wasn’t the only kaiju.

Now Warner Bros and Legendary have dated Godzilla 2 for a June 8, 2018 release. Hit the jump to see who Godzilla will be going up against in the movie, and Godzilla 2 will go up against at the box office. [Read more...]

Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” Trailer Will Debut With “Sin City 2″; Will Not Be Available Online

Trailers are an excellent way to market a film, and we have seen in the past, almost everyone will do anything to see a trailer for a film – even stand in a SDCC line to try out the new Galaxy S Tablet just to see Hunger Games Mockingjay Part I teaser.  While many studios have tried out many different strategies when it comes to trailer releases, few have made them “not available” online.  Though filming had just begun, WB recently decided that the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser shown at SDCC would never been shown again.

So imagine what it would be like for Quentin Tarantino to show a teaser for The Hateful Eight in front of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.  The filmmaker hasn’t even shot anything yet, and there is already a teaser. We do have a poster though.  But that’s not the only thing.  It has been confirmed that not only will there be a teaser for The Hateful Eight, but it won’t shown online.  Meaning you have to buy a ticket for Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, just to see a teaser.

Like I said, there will be people who are willing enough to buy a ticket at the price they are at now just to see a teaser. For more, hit the jump. [Read more...]

There is no shortage of action or nostalgia when watching an Expendables film.  The Expendables 3 takes everything we know and love about the franchise and has fun blowing it all up by adding even more crazy characters and making things much more absurd.  But that is part of the fun of the film.  Sylvester Stallone, Terry Crewes, Jason Statham, and company all return to reprise their respective roles in this action-packed film, which sees the team going up against Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), to co-founder of The Expendables team.  The older crew is forced to recruit some new blood in hopes of defeating this new threat, which then turns into a rescue mission.

We recently attended the press day for the film, where Kellen Lutz, Glen Powell, Ronda Rousey, and Victor Ortiz talked about what it was like to be a part of the Expendables franchise.  Stallone talked about the film’s legacy, showing a film like in a time of heightened gun sensitivity, and Bruce Willis’ departure.  Mel Gibson talked about his involvment, and possibly returning to directing.  There’s a whole lot more to be said, so hit the jump for the full interview.
