WARNING – MINOR SPOILERS. Here it is, ladies and gentlemen, my first official movie review for the site.  And I couldn’t have picked a better move to cut my teeth on than Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  Be warned, there are a few spoilers in here, but I promise not to ruin it for you. I have a confession to make.  I have not seen any of the five original Apes movies, nor have I read the book.  But the franchise was so popular that, like most people, I was familiar with the basic premise, especially after…

BEWARE – MINOR SPOILERS. I remember seeing the Tim Burton remake of Planet of the Apes about ten years ago, and after seriously considering writing an angry letter to the studio and demanding they refund the cost of my ticket, I decided to cut my losses and move on, hoping that studio execs would see the error of their ways and leave the franchise alone.  So earlier this year, when I saw the first (terribly underwhelming) trailer for Rise of the Planet of Apes, I shook my head in sorrow, wondering how badly Hollywood would screw it up. Then came…

Well, that didn’t take long.  Production on The Amazing Spider-Man hasn’t even wrapped, and Sony has revealed to Deadline that the sequel has been penciled in for May 2, 2014.  Says an unnamed Sony executive, “I think it speaks volumes about our confidence in what we are seeing on the new film and our desire to move quickly on the next installment.” Truth be told, I would pay ten bucks just to see the eight minute Comic-Con reel again, so I’m pretty okay with the idea of more Spidey.

Less than 24 hours ago I was sitting at my favorite bar with two other staff members, discussing our shared enthusiasm for the forthcoming PS3 version of Twisted Metal.  Now it looks like we’ll be waiting a few more months to wreak havoc on one another, as David Jaffe announced today via the PlayStation blog that the game would be missing its release date: Ok, so now…the bad news. Or at least the ‘news that seems bad at first but after you read the rest of my post I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s actually fantastic news’ news. So here…

I don’t think there was ever any question about whether or not Bethesda would release a Collector’s Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  I think the question was more along the lines of “what sort of must-have goodies will be packed in the box?” Well, thanks to an official statement from Bethesda, we have our answer.  Check out the photo and the press release below. August 5, 2011 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced that it will release a collector’s edition for the highly-anticipated The Elder Scrolls® V: Skyrim™. The limited collector’s edition will…

UPDATED: Thanks to some spy pics from Just Jared, we now have an idea what the full costume looks like.  Check out the pics below of Anne Hathaway’s stunt double, filming a sequence today in Pittsburgh. Original post from 8/5/2011 @ 6:45am After yesterday’s reveal of Henry Cavill in full costume for Man of Steel, Warner Bros. has followed up by giving us our first official look at another major character from The Dark Knight Rises: here’s Anne Hathaway in costume as Selina Kyle (click for full-size version). The photo was discovered at the official Dark Knight Rises website, and…

It’s hardly been three months since Thor made his big-screen debut, and plans for the sequel are already being put into motion.  Variety reports that Marvel Studios and Disney have approached Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk to take over the director’s chair after Kenneth Branagh declined an opportunity to return. According to Variety, the studio was impressed with Kirk’s ability to juggle large ensemble casts on shows such as Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and Dexter.  If he accepts, this would mark his feature-film debut. Thor 2 is currently scheduled for July 26, 2013.

There are no words that can even begin to express how excited I am for The Hunger Games.  It’s hard to imagine that a few months ago, I had never even heard of the series.  After seeing the casting news begin to trickle out and coming across a synopsis, I decided to give it a try in order to familiarize myself with the material.  Less than a week later, I had devoured the entire trilogy, and despite being more than six months away, my anticipation for the film has already kicked into overdrive. Now more fuel has been added to…

If there was ever a television show (or a series of books) that was worthy of the classic RPG treatment, it’s Game of Thrones.  With a huge cast of characters, a constantly-evolving plotline, and a fully-imagined world, it has all the necessary ingredients to create a successful RPG franchise. Now, thanks to College Humor, we have an idea what that franchise might have looked like during the Super NES era. (WARNING: If you haven’t seen the show, then you should be slapped, because there is obviously something wrong with you.  Also – SPOILERS)   I would seriously buy this game…

Adventures in Babysitting was one of my favorite movies as a kid.  The first time I watched Elisabeth Shue’s character jam a switchblade under that gang leader’s chin and growl “Don’t fuck with the babysitter,” I told my parents that I ddin’t want my cousin Angela to babysit me anymore – I wanted Chris Parker. Sorry, Chris – you’re no longer the coolest babysitter in town.  That role now clearly belongs to Jonah Hill, whose new comedy The Sitter looks like it falls somewhere between Role Models and the aforementioned Adventures.  Hill looks to be in familiar territory here, playing…
