‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: James Gunn’s Shortlist For Peter Quill’s Dad
eelyajekiM   |  

J'son of Spartax

The header photo should no way indicate or confirm that J’Son of Spartax is Peter Quill’s father in Guardians Of The Galaxy. In the film, Peter’s mother says that his father was an angel of light. Yondu didn’t provide many other clues either as all he said was that he was hired by Peter’s father to retrieve him after Peter’s mother died.

Many suspected that J’Son would be the father, but Gunn confirmed that it wouldn’t be the character in the comics, and that only a few people knew who it is. Now, the director, who is working on a sequel, has revealed a shortlist, and has already crossed off a name, narrowing it down a bit.

Empress Eve   |  

Team America: World Police

This week, Sony canceled the release of The Interview, the highly controversial political satire starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, after North Korean hackers threatened 9/11-style attacks on any theaters that screened the film this Christmas.

Once The Interview was pulled, the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas announced its plans to show instead Team America: World Police, the 2004 satirical comedy from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s that featured a world police team on a mission to combat a terrorist plot led by Kim Jong-il, the father of current North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. (Marionettes are used in the film instead of actors.) Now, Paramount Pictures has reportedly pulled the planned Team America screenings.

Alamo Drafthouse To Run ‘Team America’ In Place Of ‘The Interview’
The Movie God   |  

Team America: World Police

Now that Sony has apparently thrown in the white towel with their not-upcoming-anymore brutally honest and eye-opening documentary on North Korea, The Interview…wait, it’s not a brutally honest and eye-opening documentary about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea supreme leader Kim Jong-un? It’s actually a silly satirical comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco? Well, that’s weird. Someone should let them know.

While many theaters are running from all of this madness, the Dallas/Fort Worth Alamo Drafthouse has decided to turn up a defiant middle finger. The theater will replace The Interview with a special screening of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s satirical marionette puppet comedy Team America: World Police. Read more about the event below.

Sony Has No Plans To Release ‘The Interview’ On VOD; U.S. Links North Korea To Hacks
eelyajekiM   |  

The Interview

It appears that this is the end for the James Franco and Seth Rogen political satire The Interview. After hackers threatened a 9/11-style attack on any theater that shows the film on December 25, major theater chains pulled the film from their showings and Sony cancelled the release date.

While many had hoped the studio would opt for a VOD release or just patiently wait for things to cool down, Sony may have already pulled the plug on those ideas as well, meaning The Interview will probably never see the light of day. Sources say that “Sony Pictures has no further release plans for the film.”

Steve Carell and Gore Verbinski’s North Korea Thriller ‘Pyongyang’ Cancelled
eelyajekiM   |  

Steve Carell

Sony cancelling the release of The Interview has sparked an outrage on social media. While safety is a priority, many feel that the move let the hackers know they have won. It will also set a bad precedent for the future. While the studio laments on whether or not to release the film via VOD or elsewhere, other studios are now forced to reconsider or terminate their North Korea-set films completely.

One such film is an upcoming thriller Pyongyang from Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski and starring Steve Carell. According to Deadline, the current circumstances make it difficult for a film like this to move forward, therefore New Regency has decided that it doesn’t make any sense to put the film into production.

Sony Cancels ‘The Interview’ Christmas Release; May Turn To VOD
eelyajekiM   |  

The Interview starring Seth Rogen and James Franco

[UPDATE: Sony Has No Plans To Release ‘The Interview’ On VOD]

Yesterday, the hackers who infiltrated Sony Pictures’ computer network escalated from attacks of the informational kind to actual terrorist threats. They had announced that any theater showing the James Franco and Seth Rogen comedy The Interview would experience a 9/11-type attack. Far from what many had thought the Christmas surprise would be. Last night both the Arclight Cinemas and Carmike Cinemas announced that they would not be having any showing of the upcoming film because of the threat, and now five more theaters are following suit.

The Wrap says that Regal Cinemas, Cinemark, Cineplex, and AMC Theatres are now pulling The Interview after the threat was made. This also comes after Homeland Security stated that there is no credible information that an attack(s) will occur to said theaters that show the film on Christmas Day.

Even with Homeland Security saying the that threats are not credible, the decision of these major theaters chains to not screen the movie has forced Sony to cancel its Christmas release entirely and explore new options. Read a quote from Sony and more below.
