Rogue One A Star Wars Story Empire header

Even with some of the negative publicity regarding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reshoots, there is still a heavy interest in seeing how Star Wars‘ first theatrical spinoff film will play out for audiences. So far, trailers have proven to be very entertaining and have shown us that that they don’t have to rely on having Jedi or Sith, but instead can focus on the really gritty aspects of the rarely seen ground war. Previously released images have also teased what a ground war Star Wars would look like, and a new set of images gives us a better look at some of the characters and their new gear.

Check it out in the image gallery here below.

eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Thor Ragnarok

During this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the Marvel Studios’ panel had a Thor presentation full of concept art briefly showing the world outside of Earth and Asgard. We know that a large chunk of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok will take place outside of Earth and will also be a buddy film that sees Thor and Hulk traveling the cosmos to fight Hela (Cate Blanchett), the Asgardian god of death.

But before that presentation, the studio kindly showed us a hilarious mockumentary that followed what Thor did while Captain America and Iron Man were recruiting and fighting each other in Captain America: Civil War. Most of the time, any footage shown at these presentations is reserved for those who attended the event. But now just in time to celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War on Blu-ray and Digital HD, the studio has released that video. So for a few laughs, check out the video here below.

Sam Mendes to direct James And The Giant Peach

This past summer, Disney’s made a worthy attempt to bring the world of Roald Dahl’s The BFG to life with the help of Steven Spielberg. Though the adaptation didn’t meet box office expectations, that won’t stop the studio from exploring more of the author’s works. But this time, instead of looking for a new one, they will do some revisiting. According to a new report, Disney will be working on a live-action adaptation of James And The Giant Peach, with Sam Mendes, who directed the last two James Bond films, currently in early talks to develop and direct. More on the story below.

Best Movies Of 2016 … So Far – Three D’s Picks
Three-D   |  

Movies of 2016 Richard Linklater Everybody Wants Some!!

Granted I still need to see De Palma and Hell or High Water, but the lack of American films on my list of best movies of 2016 so far is glaring. Consumed with the remakes, reboots, and sequels, American cinema this year has been boring for me. I’m praying the next few months provide films with some oomph. So far in 2016 the only English-speaking film that is of any genius is Krisha (and to think it’s made by a first-time director). International cinema this year produced masterpieces. They are films that contemplate time, existence, dreams, and love. The majority of the best movies so far can be found via numerous streaming services. That should be cause of a celebration. Below are my picks for the best films so far this year listed alphabetically, along with a few runner-ups.

Honest Trailers Presents Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’ (2016)

Honest Trailers The Jungle Book 2016

A few months ago, in preparation for the arrival of the latest live-action version of Disney animated classic, The Jungle Book, the gang at Screen Junkies released an Honest Trailers for the 1967 original. Now, they’re back with an HT for Jon Favreau’s live-action (but mostly CGI) version that is absolutely, without question, way, way better!

Watch the video here below.

From the often great (Iro Mman, Elf) to sometimes awful (Cowboys and Aliens) director Jon Favreau comes the best talking animal movie this year… in a year where one comes out almost every week. So after you’ve watched Disney’s live-action Cinderella, but before their live-action Pete’s Dragon and Beauty & The Beast comes a film better than the original cartoon, because it features… a plot! Part Lion King, part nature documentary, part kid-version of The Revenant… (actual LOL) to that one.

The Difference Between Good and Bad “Jump Scares” In Movies (Video)
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Why Jump Scares Suck Video

Horror fans can usually tell whether they’ll dislike an upcoming movie just based on how many CGI ghosts, monsters, demons, and various other nasty things pull what’s known as a “jump scare” in the trailers. Jump scares often occur when those making the film aren’t so good at building tension and using sounds, settings, and the viewer’s own imagination to create terrifying moments and situations, and so they instead have things jump out and BOO! you accompanied by loud noises in hopes of jump starting your fear. Movies like this are usually like a really long version of that video with an unexpected screaming face you were tricked (or tricked someone else) into watching.

But this isn’t always the case. In fact, there are different ways to pull off the infamous jump scare, and sometimes it can actually work really well. YouTube channel Now You See It has released a new video, which can be viewed below, called “Why Jump Scares Suck.” The video takes a closer look at the jump scare with examples of both the right and wrong ways to use them.
