Margot Robbie goes full-on crazy in this new entertaining red-band trailer for her Tanya Harding biopic I, Tanya. This character almost seems more insane and unstable than Robbie's version of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad! The film was inspired by the true story of Tanya Harding's ungraceful rise to the Olympics and fall. As you'll see, it's told in the style of a dark comedy and it looks like a really great movie!
Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan.
Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory.
The movie was directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm, Fright Night, The Finest Hours) and it also stars Allison Janney, Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson, Caitlin Carver, Bojana Novakovic, and Bobby Cannavale. Here's the synopsis:
I, Tonya opens on December 8th and I can't wait to see it!
Bill Skarsgard, the actor who played Pennywise the Clown in IT, is also set to co-star in the Stephen King and J.J. Abrams' Hulu series Castle Rock.
The series is built around the universe that Stephen King has built in his books and will feature all kinds of elements and characters from his stories that fans are familiar with. Thanks to Flickering Myth, we now know who Skarsgard is playing in the film. He's going to play a prisoner in the Shawshank correctional facility.
"Instead of playing a killer clown as he did in IT, this time around Skarsgard portrays a prisoner at Shawshank, who is directly connected with André Holland’s Henry Deaver, a death-row attorney."
I know some fans thought that because the actor played Pennywise in IT that he might have something to do with that in the series, but that's not the case. I actually like the fact that he's going to be a prison in Shawshank! In a separate interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Skarsgard talked a little bit about the kind of character he plays, saying:
“The only thing I want to stress is that [Castle Rock is] a completely separate thing than Pennywise and IT. The world is brand new. It’s Stephen King’s universe…these are places we’ve been familiarized with through his work. But the show is an original story in that world. The character is a lot of fun. He’s — it’s a really weird one. [He’s] so different from Pennywise. I’m using a completely different tool set here for this one.”
Castle Rock is a 10-episode psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse. It "combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. As a series, Castle Rock aims to explore various themes and worlds, uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories."
The series is being written by Manhattan creator Sam Shaw and Dusty Thomason. It also includes a cast of actors that includes Scott Glenn (Daredevil), Andre Holland (Moonlight), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy (Evil Dead), and Terry O-Quinn (Lost).
It's going to be a blast to watching all of these MCU characters team up and come together to fight Thanos and the Black Order. It's going to be fun to see certain characters pair off with each other during the story. We've already heard that Thor and Star-Lord would be two characters that would come together to bring a comedic element to the film. We also heard that Groot would have a mentor, but we aren't sure who that is.
Now, in an interview with USA Today, Mark Ruffalo teased that Hulk and Rocket Raccoon would have a very funny relationship. He explained:
“It’s a very funny relationship that the two of them have: First of all, it’s the biggest superhero and the smallest. Just keeping them in a frame together is a feat and hilarious in itself."
It's certainly going to be a wonderful visual treat to see Hulk and Rocket kicking some ass together! Ruffalo goes on to point out that that seeing all of these universes and characters collide with each other "is just a sight gag within itself.”
Avengers: Infinity War is going to be quite the spectacle and I can't wait to see how all of these characters end up interacting with each other.
What characters from the MCU are you hoping to see together in the movie.

Attack on Titan is getting a film prior to the release of Season 3, although fans of the series shouldn't be too excited at this announcement. According to Anime New Network, the film (titled The Roar Of Awakening) is going to be a condensed recap of Season 2, so if you've already seen that season there's really no reason for you to tune in.
That said, if you haven't and want a nice recap before jumping into Season 3, here's your answer. Season 3 of the series is arriving so quickly I almost wonder if the reason we had to wait so long before Season 2 is due to the fact they were simultaneously working on both! What do you think?
You can check out some key art that was released for Season 3 below:
I know that right now everyone is excited about seeing Batman teaming up with Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg in Justice League. But, you know what might be even more exciting!? Watching Batman team up with Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo of Mystery Inc.
There's a new animated movie being released from Warner Bros. Animation called Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold and it wouldn't be the first time that Batman has crossed paths with Scooby-Doo. But in this latest adventure, there will be several other DC characters involved such as Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, Aquaman, Plastic Man, the Joker, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, Scarecrow, and Poison Ivy.
As far as the main villain is concerned it looks like there's a flying red ghost creature involved. Of course, in classic Scooby-Doo fashion, the red ghost will end up being someone that the team encounters while trying to solve the mystery that they never suspected. Like old man Withers!
Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold will be released sometime in January of 2018. It looks like it could be a fun flick to watch with the kids. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think!
If you haven't finished watching Stranger Things Season 2 yet, you will want to avoid this articel until you're done.
Sean Astin's Bod was one of my favorite characters of Season 2, mostly because he reminded me a lot of myself. It was incredibly sad to see him die, but he heroically sacrificed himself to save the people he loved.
It was previously revealed by the Duffer Bros. that as they fell in love with the character throughout the series, they kept putting off his death to keep the character around a little bit longer. They said:
"He wasn't supposed to be that big of a character, and he was supposed to die a lot earlier. Then we found Sean Astin and met him and fell in love with this guy as a person and as an actor. We really started to fall in love with his character.
"Bob wasn't designed to be the likable character who perishes; he was designed to be kind of just an out-of-it dork. Sean Astin really transformed that role, to the point where we kept kicking his death down the road. We kept pushing it and pushing it until we could push it no further — when we got to episode eight and we realized narratively we still had to do it. It was the hardest scene to write all year, just because it was hard to lose that character and lose Sean. We had such a great time working with him."
We now know how Bob was originally supposed to bite the dust, and I'm really happy they changed it up. He had a much darker fate because he was originally going to be killed off by Will! Yeah! Little possessed Will was going to end his life! While talking to Collider, Producer Shawn Levy said:
“We had talked about the death of some major characters, that may or may not happen in the future near or far. But that was never part of the discussion for Season 2. The death of Bob was initially much earlier. In fact, in an early outline, Evil Will kills him in like Episode 3.”
This means Will would have killed him in the episode titled “The Pollywog,” which is the same episode where Bob gave Will the advice to stand up to his fears. I loved that little scene between these characters. I'm happy it did lead to Will murdering Bob after that talk!
All of the stuff that we love about Bob came to exist after Sean Astin was cast to play him. Had they not cast him, Bob would have been more of a throw away character that no one cared about.
Some photos from the set of Ant-Man and The Wasp have surfaced giving us our first look at Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. The photos also include Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. It looks like the scene that is being shot is a flashback because the actors look like they will be playing younger versions of themselves.
In the first Ant-Man film, Pym is mourning the loss of his wife, who has been lost in the sub-atomic realm. It looks like maybe the story of how this happened will be told. It will be interesting see how they end up bringing her back from that sub-atomic realm.
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and The Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
The movie also stars Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp, Michael Pena as Luis, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, T.I. as Dave, Randall Park as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jimmy Woo, Hannah John-Kamen as the Ghost, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne, the wife of Hank Pym, and Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, who was an assistant to both Tony Stark and Hank Pym in the comics. He eventually takes on Pym’s Giant Man abilities and becomes a superhero known as Goliath.
Peyton Reed is directingAnt-Man and the Wasp, and it will be released in theaters on July 6th, 2018.
I have been a huge supporter of MoviePass! I have loved the service ever since I signed up and I use it all the time. It's saved me so much money at the movies!
When I initially signed up, the service permitted me to watch one movie a day for $10 a month. Pretty awesome, right!? And it freakin' works! But now, MoviePass has changed the terms of their service, and it's kind of ridiculous because it's not what people like myself initially signed up for.
MoviePass reserves the right to change the rules of movie-going attendance and ticket availability to members in connection with the Service at anytime. MoviePass reserves the right to change from time to time the number of eligible movies a member can see per month. MoviePass reserves the right to offer members a new price option if they exceed watching a certain amount of movies per month.
Wait, what? That's not what I signed up for! This new term basically tells us that if we take full advantage of the service we signed up for, they have the right to limit the number of movies we see even more or make us pay extra. This is the complete opposite of the term "Use it or lose it." This is basically "Use it too much and you will lose it."
Of course, I'm still going to use the service as long as I keep saving money with it, but the fact that they are giving themselves an out if people actually start to take advantage of the system that they signed up, is kind of discouraging. What do you think?
