Warner Bros. Wants DC Comics Movies To Cut Out The Funny and Be More Serious
eelyajekiM   |  

Batman vs Superman

If there is one thing that separates the movies of Marvel Studios and DC Comics, it’s the tone. While Marvel has been able to juggle the dramatic and humor and give it some bubblegum pop, DC Comics’ films have been defined by their serious and gritty tone and monotone colors, this thanks in part to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. Green Lantern tried to take a shot at showing DC Comic’s comedic side, but to no avail since the film tanked at the box office.

While not being funny isn’t a detriment to a film, it sure is nice to see a film try to lighten things up with some sort of humor. The Dark Knight trilogy had jokes, but let’s face it, they really didn’t do much for the film. And that’s okay, Nolan wasn’t exactly striving to have comedy in those films. And it looks like Warner Bros. wants to continue that mantra by not having any jokes in future DC Comics film adaptations.

The Pyramid Movie

If a found footage movie about Bigfoot wasn’t your cup of tea, perhaps a found footage movie set inside one of Egypt’s pyramids will tickle your fancy.

The first trailer has been released for The Pyramid, which comes from High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes [2006], Mirrors, and Piranha 3D director Alexandre Aja, and first-time director Grégory Levasseur, who worked on the screenplays for the aforementioned Aja titles.

‘Exists’ Trailer: A Bigfoot Flick From ‘Blair Witch Project’ Director
The Movie God   |  

Exists Movie Banner Image

A new trailer has been released for a movie titled Exists, a found footage bigfoot movie from one of the directors of The Blair Witch Project, Eduardo Sanchez. That’s right, folks, found footage still lives! For some, this may be worthy of a good long head shake. For others, it’s an always welcome bit of potential fun.

The premise is simple enough: a group of friends out on a camping trip, some video equipment brought along to document the memories, and the unexpected Sasquatch that shows up and causes a bit of chaos. Good times!

You can read a synopsis and check out the trailer for Exists below.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Honest Trailer American Austin Powers

Bored? Nothing on TV? Are you a sarcastic movie fan who loves picking apart even your favorite movies for their idiosyncrasies? The Screen Junkies YouTube page has some of the best stuff going on right now on the internet with their series of Honest Trailers. While they can be viewed as being overly critical, the Honest Trailers are mostly filled with hilarious narration by Jon Bailey (the first narrator was Gannon Nickell). Whether it’s plot holes, continuity errors, or hammed up overacting, the guys at HT will bring it to you “in their awesome voices.”

And what better way to get acclimated to Honest Trailers than a double shot of Marvel superhero goodness: Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Watch both “honest trailers” here below!

Jeremy Renner Says Hawkeye May Appear In ‘Captain America 3′
eelyajekiM   |  

hawkeye avengers

It’s never a dull moment during the production of any Marvel film. And as we have seen, characters can be killed but resurrected, or they can fake their deaths, or they can just disappear into the winds, but if there is one Marvel character that hasn’t gotten a fair shake it would probably be Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye. Renner was a last minute addition to Thor, he was basically a villain for almost three-quarters of The Avengers, and he didn’t get to appear alongside his fellow assassin, Black Widow, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But the actor may have dropped a huge spoiler about Hawkeye, and the future of his character in the MCU.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron director Joss Whedon said that Hawkeye won’t be moping around as a hypnotized baddie in the second film, which is a good thing. Whedon then said he would like to kill someone in the film, and all eyes went on Hawkeye, which would make sense, had it not been for this latest rumor: Hawkeye could be in Captain America 3. Hit the jump to learn more.

The Digital Wire Blu-ray/DVD Release News: Murder, Morbidity, Maturation, Mischief
BAADASSSSS!   |  

boyhood still ifc films sxsw

Another week, another edition of The Digital Wire here at Geeks of Doom. Try not to look so enthusiastic. Major Blu-ray/DVD release announcements were scant this week, but news of some interesting titles soon to make their way to multiple home viewing platforms wasn’t, so I’ve compiled the best of the odds ‘n’ ends. We’ve got undead girlfriends, some Southern-fried slaughter, mismatched cops tearing up the Windy City, salacious studio hilarity, and one of the best-reviewed motion pictures of 2014. So I guess that last one is a pretty major announcement. My bad.

Below you’ll find info on several future home video releases complete with technical specs, release dates, and links to pre-order at Amazon. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power.

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Fan-Made Posters Show The Aftermath Of War
Empress Eve   |  

Star Wars Episode VII

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been wondering “what happened” after the events of 1983′s Return Of The Jedi for all these years. Yes, we had all of the Star Wars Expanded Universe goodness, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but there was always that sense that since it was not canon, it couldn’t be considered the real deal.

Now that we’re getting an official Star Wars sequel film trilogy, with the first film — Star Wars: Episode VII — coming in 2015, we’ll finally find out what happened to Han, Leia, Luke, and all their friends and foes. It will likely be a while before we get an official posters, so in the meantime, we can enjoy these fan-made Star Wars: Episode VII posters.

Check out the posters here below, which were created by deviantart user andrewss7.

Josh Brolin red bandana The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon

Josh Brolin made an appearance last week on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new movie, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and host Jimmy Fallon brought up the first film the actor was ever in — The Goonies, which celebrates its 30th anniversary next June. Brolin said he would participate in a sequel if it actually happens (there’s been many rumors about it over the years) and then he donned a red bandana like his character, Brand, wore in the 1985 Richard Donner film.
