Now it looks as though he’s making the move to directing with his new project Gods and Secrets. Continue reading Adi Shankar to Direct Superhero Indie “Gods and Secrets”
At first, the headline “Michael Bay is doing a film about Benghazi” was difficult to get our heads around. In a way it makes perfect sense: Bay loves a sunny set location (the sun gets most of its acting work in Bay’s films) and his ability to craft addicitve action cannot be denied. Still, Benghazi?

If you were anywhere near an Ant-Man screening over the last week or two (check out our review here), then you’ll most likely have gotten a little giggly at the reference to Spiderman in the final few minutes – a two second hint that got arguably as much attention as the post-credits sequence. And who could blame you. The latest MCU newcomer is the talk of the town, and with actor Tom Holland and director Jon Watts nailed down for the project, the Ant-Man nod was a nice reminder of what we’ve got to look forward to in 2017 with Spiderman‘s release. What more could we really ask for this early in the game? Well confirmation that of who’s writing the screenplay would be nice. Oh wait we totally have that! Continue reading “Vacation” Writers Confirm “Spiderman” Gig

Having small but memorable runs in shows like Arrested Development and leapfrogging from sitcom to sitcom in various cameos, the actress has certainly honed her comedy chops. She’s already had quite a 2015, popping up in Tomorrowland, Jurassic World and Ant-Man, and now she’s getting some serious camera time in Addicted to Fresno, for which we have a delightfully red-banded trailer. Continue reading Judy Greere Kills and Steals Sex Toys in New “Addicted to Fresno” Red Band Trailer
