Justice League Dark started out as a DC comic book, taking the universe's magical and supernatural A-listers and putting them in their own group book. For a brief while Guillermo del Toro was championing his idea of a live-action movie, but that appears to be on hold in favour of Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman and Justice League flicks in the next few years.Add a comment (0)
This past weekend the 2016 San Diego Comic Con took place. On the biggest attendance day of the con, one of the events was a panel celebrating the 30th anniversary of Aliens, released on July 20, 1986. Seven thousand fans sat inside Hall H cheering on star Sigourney Weaver, director James Cameron and another half-dozen of the cast and producing talent behind Aliens.
On one hand, it's incredible to think that, 30 years after the release of Aliens, it would still prove to be an incredibly popular and often quoted movie. The impact of Aliens on Hollywood's sequel factory and action/adventure landscape cannot be dismissed.Add a comment (0)

Creed II is happening. This is fact: Sylvester Stallone said so today. And it's a no-brainer because of the success of the first movie, with $103 million domestic on a $30 mil budget.
The question now is: what will Creed II be about? Will Adonis Creed do what Rocky did in his first sequel and win the championship? And will it be a rematch or against a new opponent?Add a comment (0)

Eight grumpy folk from the 19th century are snowed in. Most of them have guns and attitudes, and ain't afraid to use either of the two to disrupt each other's company.
Welcome to the eighth movie by director Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight.
The second trailer for the December 25th release dropped online today. Ironically enough, the marketing embraces the Yueltide season by making fun of it: go see The Hateful Eight with someone you hate. That sounds about right for spending time with the family during the holidays.Add a comment (0)

Well, the deal has been struck and it'll be on Netflix where we'll see the next wave of Marvel TV shows.

One of my absolute favorite Pixar films is Monsters Inc. When I first watched it back in 2001, the movie's charm and charisma swept me away. I loved how Team Pixar was able to assemble a story that explained (in a childlike fantasy way) how the world of monsters intersected with the world of human children and also include a strong emotional connection between the film's two main characters, Mike and Sully, and their little ward Boo. After Finding Nemo it's my favorite Pixar movie of all-time.Add a comment (0)
