As many of you know the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Captain America: Civil War which hits theatres next year. Now, according to Lady Sif actress Jaimie Alexander, we learn that Civil War will also serve to somewhat set up and allude to the next Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok hitting theatres on July 28th 2017. Alexander also revealed that Lady Sif will play a pivotal role in the new Thor film saying the following: “Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things, because they know I’ll be like, ‘So here’s what’s gonna happen.’ But I do know I will be in ‘Thor 3′ and that Sif will have a very pivotal part in that movie. I just can’t tell you what because I’ll get shot.”

The brand new trailer for the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre, has hit the web. A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. The new film opens in theatres on November 6th.


Sony Pictures has just won a bidding war for the rights to a story pitch for an Emoji movie. Yes… an Emoji movie. According to the report several studios were interested in acquiring the detailed pitch co-written by Eric Siegel (TBS’s “Men At Work”) and Anthony Leondis who will also direct the film. Leondis also directed the upcoming animated film B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations. Mark, do you buy or sell the idea of an animated Emoji movie?

Another new trailer has hit the web and this one if for the upcoming Pixar film The Good the-good-dinosaur-posterDinosaur. Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. The Good Dinosaur opens in theaters on November 25th.

In late 2014 we learned that director Shawn Levy had left the upcoming Warner Bros project Minecraft. Things have been quiet on the Minecraft front ever since then until now. According to an announcement by the studio the film has a new director. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator, writer and star Rob McElhenney will direct. There is currently no release date set for the film.

Charles Kim writes: I’m just as much excited as everyone else about the upcoming Deadpool movie especially after watching (oops) the leaked SDCC teaser but it got me thinking…even though I really enjoyed Ryan Reynolds version of Green Lantern (by the power of Greyskull) his quirky quips and overall demeanor doesn’t seem like quite the right fit for the more “grounded” DC cinematic universe. So I guess my question is.  Would you rather of had a great Green Lantern movie thus securing Ryan Reynolds in the future DCCU or are you glad it failed so we can get a potentially awesome redemption of the merc with a mouth?

BarinderPal Nanuan writes: Hey guys. I’m just wondering, why would studios open 4 big films on the same weekend (June 10, 2016)

The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist

Now You See Me: The Second Act
