‘MacGruber 2’ Is Finally On Its Way With Director Jorma Taccone
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

MacGruber

Though a critical flop, the interest in seeing MacGruber 2 has never died. It’s been nearly 6 years since the original film based on the Saturday Night Live skit was released, and any hopes of seeing a follow-up have been kept alive thanks to its cult following. In fact, the last substantial thing we’ve heard about a MacGruber 2 was way back in 2013, when the thought of producing a sequel using crowdfunding was being explored. While plans for that fell through, it seems as though MacGruber director Jorma Taccone will be giving us that sequel we’ve all be waiting for. Check out the full story below.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange Recruited For ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Doctor Strange

It is going to be hard to believe that any hero that has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would not have a role in Avengers: Infinity War. Though the team is currently fractured, they would most likely have to put their differences aside to fight Thanos. As far as we know, the founding members, maybe the Guardians of the Galaxy, members of Team Iron Man and Team Captain America, Spider-Man, and Black Panther will all participate in the fight to defend Earth. Now it looks like they won’t be alone as Benedict Cumberbatch says Doctor Strange will be joining the fray.

Last week on Gotham, we caught up with all of our old friends. Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) became queen of the monsters, as the whole city hunted for her. Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) made the pot sweeter by offering 1 million dollars for her capture, and then acted sweeter by proclaiming his friendship for Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) Jim Gordon’s new bounty hunter job put him right in line to capture monsters for cash. Ace reporter Valerie Vale (Jamie Chung) showed up as Jim’s next love interest, er… informant? Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) returned home to a pissed off Selina (Camren Bicondova), and to piss off the board at Wayne Enterprises. Bruce told them that he has the goods on them. They promptly kidnapped him. One of Mooney’s goons killed Mrs. Peabody by speedy aging, and seemed to kill Ivy (Clare Foley) the same way, as she fell a long long way.

Massive Metal Monday: Metallica’s Cliff Burton “Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth)”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Cliff Burton of Metallica

Thirty years ago tomorrow, September 27, 1986, the metal world lost one of its brightest stars. While on tour in support of their magnum opus Master of Puppets, Metallica were involved in a tragic bus accident that claimed the life of their 24-year-old bass prodigy Cliff Burton.

Burton was asleep in a top bunk near the open escape hatch when the drive of the tour bus lost control on an icy road, causing the bus to flip over. The bassist was ejected through the hatch and crushed by the rolling vehicle. It was a tragic end to a brief but stellar career for a man that many consider to be the greatest metal bassist of all time and the unquestionable heart and soul of one of metal’s most beloved bands.

So, to commemorate this somber anniversary, this week’s Massive Metal Monday is dedicated to the memory and legacy of the immortal Cliff Burton. Here is the master performing his signature song live in 1983. This is “Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth).”

James Corden and Daisy Ridley Join ‘Peter Rabbit’
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit is easily one of the most memorable pieces of children literature to ever be released. Since its publication back in 1902, five subsequent books were then released between 1904 and 1912. The rest is, as they say, history. Merchandise and adaptations would soon follow, thus continuing the success of the franchise. Now, the title character is about to get the big-screen treatment from Sony Animation Pictures. A new report says The Late Late Show host James Corden, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 star Elizabeth Debecki will star in the live-action animation hybrid of Peter Rabbit. Rose Bryne will also have a role in the film. More on the story below.

‘Luke Cage’ Trailer: Marvel’s Title Hero Ain’t The Hero Type
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Marvel's Luke Cage

Netflix is making one final push to promote the upcoming Luke Cage, which debuts this weekend. The series is the third in Marvel and Netflix’s collaboration that sees Marvel heroes that fight crime in the streets of New York, rather than go on grand adventures like Iron Man or Agent Coulson. And perhaps that is one of the reasons why they have been a huge draw, it is that willingness to take these heroes and ground them and make them just a little bit more relatable. Daredevil and Jessica Jones have been bonafide hits, and based on early reactions, it is safe to say that Luke Cage could be a hit as well.

Check out the final full trailer here below for Luke Cage.

“Warning! The truly unusual motion picture you are about to see contains many scenes of graphic violence. It is not intended for the faint of heart nor the young and impressionable.

If you feel you will be offended by such material, please leave the theater at once. Note: All of the mutilations, bodily dismemberments, and cannibal rituals were performed by seasoned professionals. Please do not attempt any of these stunts at home. Thank you.”

Directed by female exploitation filmmaker Jackie Kong (Night Patrol) and written by Michael Sonye (Mengele from Troma’s Surf Nazis Must Die), Blood Diner is one of the craziest damn movies you’ll ever see – and now it’s available on Blu-ray, transferred from the original film elements, thanks to Lionsgate’s Vestron Video Collector’s Series.

TV Review: Once Upon A Time 6.1 “The Savior”
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  

Once Upon a Time 601-10

Once Upon a Time
Season 6 Episode 1: “The Savior”
Directed by Eagle Egilsson
Written by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz
Created by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz
Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Jared Gilmore, Robert Carlyle, Rebecca Mader
ABC
Air Date: Sunday, September 25th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last season on Once Upon A Time, our Storybrooke residents traveled to Camelot, and met King Arthur who was evil and Merlin who was good. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) started there as a dark one, and her loved ones tried to save her. She, in turn (not the best in the decision department), saves Hook’s life by turning him into a dark one. He acts accordingly until the end, when he decides to die heroically instead. My Hero! Zelena (Rebecca Mader) finally found her true love, but he was so bad, he was king of the Underworld, Hades (Greg Germann). Her true love killed Regina’s, and we were so sad to see Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) leave her. They met Brave and Lancelot, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Hercules and Dorothy, and were swept to many lands as this fairy tale often takes us.

Fear the Walking Dead, Season 2, Episode 13 review

Fear the Walking Dead

Directed by Christoph Schrewe

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

Last week on Fear The Walking Dead, Madison foolishly turned on the huge, red sign atop the hotel tower hoping to signal to her son, Nick, who had decided not to travel on with his family. But as expected, the lit sign instead was a beacon for every survivor in the area that a refuge was available. So, that’s why it’s not surprising that this week’s episode, 2.13 “Date of Death,” began by showing a large group of survivors banging at the chained-up hotel gates, desperate to get in. But the hotel group is too scared to let anyone else in, even though the people are pleading with them. Madison does feel remorse for having to turn everyone away after inadvertently luring them there. In the crowd, though, is Madison’s fiance Travis, who was separated from her at the end of the mid-Season 2 finale when he left to be with his disturbed son, Chris. Travis makes his way up to the front, and they manage to squeeze him in without anyone else getting in, and he is reunited with Madison! But, where’s Chris?, Madison and her daughter Alicia ask.
