Ridley Scott, the British filmmaker responsible for the original Blade Runner film was out on a promotional tour for his latest film, The Martian, when he spoke with Jordan Zarakin of Yahoo! Movies recently. They spoke about bits of everything from promoting The Martian to sequels for Prometheus and Blade Runner as well as his work on Exodus.
On March 22, 2016, Robbie Amell (The Tomorrow People and Flash) and Stephen Amell (Arrow) launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for their upcoming movie, Code8. They set the goal for $200,000, and, when the funding closed on April 22nd, the cousins had raised over 1.7 million dollars. Not bad for a project fans knew little about until the day of launch. Variety reported that
I read an article (read it here) posted by a moviepilot friend, she knows who she is, and it really got me thinking about the topics brought up in it. I wrote a few weeks ago about the #GhostbustersGATE and was met with hostility even though my purpose for writing was to question the initial backlash against the film as it seemed that so many thought the movie was obviously a feminist plot for political correctness and gender equality. *start rant* Seriously, a feminist plot... grow up and realize that it's not a male world anymore *end rant* Regardless of your opinion on feminine influence in movie, comic and general geek-dom: it's happening, and I think it's great.
The conversion of comics to film has exploded over the last decade, and we've had so many heroes and villains introduced that sometimes it's hard to keep it all straight. We've seen actors portray a comic book character, then a few years later have the franchise rebooted and a new actor as that same character. Yet there are some actors that have decided that one comic book character isn't enough and they've taken on multiple characters over the years, here are a few of them.
We've all seen how much potential Paul Blackthorne (Captain Lance) has in Arrow. He nails every scene he has. Even during the time of the series when I didn't like his character, I liked that he made me not like him. Only a really good actor can make you feel that way.
Every critic must have a good time reviewing this one.
May is the month of superhero movies this year, Captain America: Civil War (2016) premieres later this week, and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) has a premiere date later this month on the 27th. As for Captain America: Civil War, spoilers and information on the film are being released at a constant rate. The same can be said of X-Men: Apocalypse with it's imminent release, but there's a far more substantial amount of mystery behind the X-Men: Apocalypse. We're privy to a known cast of mutants, but an entire legacy of mutants has been added to the original team introduced in X-Men: First Class. Some of which we have no idea who they are yet, and just may have pivotal futures in the 'X-Men' franchise.
Nicholas Sparks is the man that most people think of when they think of romantic movies these days. He's the powerhouse behind such movies as Dear John, Safe Haven, and, of course The Notebook. However, when he shared his favorite romantic movies with Rotten Tomatoes, none of his were on the list.
Ok, so filtering through all of the Ghostbusters rumors, was more work than I expected, especially with the Tatum/Pratt news leak, but nevertheless my search continued. As my searching progressed, I became more and more aggravated. Not with the ALL FEMALE CAST REBOOT but with the #ghostbustersgate nonsense.
