Jason Momoa The Red Road

I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve been one of the “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” haters out there. Everything I’ve heard so far has just turned me off more and more to the film. Well, almost everything–the idea of seeing Wonder Woman and Cyborg in the same film is quite intriguing and I need to see how this comes out. I guess I’m also admitting that I’m a hater that will still go to the movie theater to see this film. At least I can admit it. However, I will say that there is one thing that is making me legitimately want to see it, not  [ Read More ]

Reg-E-Cathey-The-Wire-Screenshot

Stop the presses! A black actor is playing Dr. Storm! As a black person myself, I thought I’d use that introduction to get people’s attention and to show how a lot of the “Fantastic Four” fanatics probably feel about this news.

Say it isn’t so! One of the most popular duos is splitting up! This time, it’s not a Hollywood marriage, it’s a writing team.

Orci is still in the world of the “Star Trek” franchise and is also in loose talks to direct the third film–no negotiations have happened, but Orci has director J.J. Abrams’ blessing. Abrams, of course, is directing the  [ Read More ]

Some probably won’t want a sequel or spin-off –you don’t want to ruin a good thing–but if you are hoping and praying for a new “Lebowski” film, your prayers just might have been answered. TMZ recently asked John Tuturro if rumors of a “Lebowski” spin-off starring Tuturro’s character, Jesus “The Jesus” Quintana, could actually be in the works.  [ Read More ]
