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…

Hear that?  It’s hundreds of thousands of J.J. Abrams and Star Trek fans breathing a collective sigh of relief.  There have been conflicting stories about the status of Star Trek 2 and whether or not it would go into production in time for a Q4 2012 release.  It had begun to feel more and more like the sequel was being forced, as so many sequels are, but J.J. Abrams won’t allow that to happen. In an interview with Collider, Abrams had this to say regarding the status of Star Trek 2: “There have been a lot of things that we’ve…

Things have been rolling along at a thunderous pace for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. It felt like the internets were abuzz with the latest bit of casting info on a bi-weekly basis, with beloved young stars like Amy Adams cast as Lois Lane or established screen legends like Kevin Costner being cast as Jonathan Kent.  And let’s not forget just yesterday the wacky, but brilliant news of Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. On top of that, over the past few weeks pictures have been surfacing all over the online community of the construction of Smallville and the Kent farm…

We reported it last night, and we were right!  Warner Bros. has unveiled the first official image of Henry Cavill in costume as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.

Deadline is reporting that Paradise Lost director Alex Proyas wants to cast Benjamin Walker in the role of the archangel Michael.  Walker has entered into negotiations with Legendary Pictures, and would star opposite Bradley Cooper as Lucifer. Based on the classic poem by John Milton, the story follows the epic conflict between good and evil as Lucifer, having been cast out of Heaven, forms an army of his own and launches “the war that began all wars.”  The film is expected to feature battles on par with 300 and Lord of the Rings.  Says Proyas: “I’ve sometimes thought that only…

With two major studios already working on their own Snow White tales, it seems Disney will be making some major changes to their own development project.  Originally titled Snow White and the Seven, the film was expected to be family-oriented, imagining the seven dwarves as Shaolin monks.  But now it looks like that idea is being scrapped in favor of a new script by Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt. Now being called Order of the Seven, the film seems intent on distancing itself from the Snow White elements, making her seven companions the focus of the story.  According to…

Henry Cavill, who was recently snapped walking down the street with a very distinctive hairstyle, recently spoke to Total Film about his upcoming role in Man of Steel, the Christopher Nolan-produced Superman reboot directed by Zack Snyder. When asked about his costume (which we exclusively reported could be unveiled as soon as tomorrow), Cavill gushed: “It’s extremely cool. There’s no other feeling like it.They just put it on, I turned around and look in the mirror and you can’t really play it cool – you sort of guffaw and laugh. I thought ‘OK, holy hell, this is real, it’s not…

While promoting his upcoming comedy The Change-Up with Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds spoke to MTV and gave a few brief updates on his upcoming projects. “RIPD I’m doing next and then hopefully Deadpool,” Reynolds said. “It’s in development still.” Reynolds had previously stated that he would most likely wind up doing one film or the other, but that starring in both was unlikely.  When asked if the situation was still an “either or” scenario, Reynolds replied, “No, not at all, far from it.” The Deadpool film has been languishing for some time, despite Reynolds’ enthusiasm for the project.  The most…

Most of today’s posts have been very trailer-centric, and this one is no different.  Columbia Pictures gives us another look at Moneyball, due out on September 23rd, 2012. Based on Michael Lewis’ nonfiction bestseller Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, the book’s subject is Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), who assembled a contending baseball club on a shoestring budget by employing a sophisticated computer-based analysis to draft players. With the exception of Major League and Field of Dreams, I’ve never been interested in movies about baseball.  But judging by this trailer, it seems like…
