Apple Considering Producing Original Content To Compete With Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu
eelyajekiM   |  

Apple Logo

Streaming sites like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu have been producing their own content for years, some of them even snatching up series from being cancelled. Even Sony has started to produce its own content for their PS4. But Apple hasn’t been in the game for some very odd reason, though its founder has been the subject of films like the one Michael Fassbender stars in, which is due for a fall release. Even with Apple TV and the many other Apple devices, we have yet to see original content produced by the technology giant.

Now according to a brand new report, Apple is in talks with companies to start producing their own original shows and films. If they follow through, and are successful in bringing us something new, this would put Apple in direct competition with the aforementioned streaming sites. More on the story below.

Tatiana Maslany

It seems that Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) is just itching to get into the Star Wars universe. She was one of the frontrunners for the lead role in A Star Wars Story: Rogue One, a role that ultimately went to Felicity Jones. But now she is back on another Star Wars list, this time for Star Wars: Episode VIII.

She won’t be alone though, and she will be up against some pretty stiff competition. According to a new report, Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin) and Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel) are also in consideration for the female lead role in director Rian Johnson‘s untitled Episode VIII. More on the story below.

Kevin Feige’s Power Grows As Marvel Assimilates With Disney
eelyajekiM   |  

Kevin Feige

While most would think that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is the top man who reports to Disney CEO Bob Iger, that really isn’t the case. He actually reports to Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter, a reclusive executive who is known for micromanaging the superhero entertainment giant. However, Feige has expressed frustration at the working relationship. So after venting said frustration to Iger and Disney live-action head Alan Horn, the company did some corporate restructuring, which gives Perlmutter less control over Marvel Studios and more to Feige.

MST3K: Volume I
DVD
Starring Joel Hodgson, Michael J. Nelson
Not Rated | 480 Minutes
Shout! Factory
Release Date: September 01, 2015

In the not-too-distant future…

In this re-release of the first collection of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, Joel Hodgson, Michael J. Nelson, Tom Servo (Josh Weinstein, Kevin Murphy), and Crow T. Robot (Trace Beaulieu) endure unspeakable cinematic horrors.

MST3K: Volume I features four episodes from the Comedy Central era, one with Joel Hodgson as host and three with Mike Nelson. It’s a solid, eclectic mix of episodes spanning seasons two and six.

Superman Man Of Steel - Zod - Michael Shannon for sequel Batman v Superman

As far as many of the press junkets go, if you are a talent attached to a superhero film that is a part of the shared universe, chances are you are going to be asked about said superhero film. Some may answer, some play dodge, and some may not answer at all because of an NDA agreement they signed. Recently, we saw just how powerful the internet voice can be when Michael Shannon talked about having flippers for hands in Batman v Superman. So was he becoming Black Manta or something else entirely?

Well, during the press tour for 99 Homes, the actor is “setting the record straight” by admitting that he wasn’t even a part of the filming process for BvS. More on this below.

Bill Murray Explains His ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Cameo
eelyajekiM   |  

Ghostbusters

Whenever a reboot or remake happens, sometimes the original stars appear in some sort of cameo as a nod to its fans. In Paul Feig‘s new vision of Ghostbusters starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, a few of the surviving members of the original film are coming back in a cameo capacity. Dan Aykroyd was the first to be announced, followed by a surprising confirmation of Bill Murray’s participation. Murray was the last person anyone would have thought to have joined this film, mostly because he didn’t want to concede to do a Ghostbusters 3.

Now he is revealing why he decided to be in the new Ghostbusters. Check out his explanation here below.
