Rumors have been abound for the past week that a sequel to the Power Rangers film is going to happen, and that Hasbro currently has Allspark Pictures developing a sequel to the film. Now, the toy company has broken its silence regarding the rumors, and shared the following cryptic message for all to read:
We see tremendous potential for the Power Rangers franchise around our entire brand blueprint, including feature films. We have nothing specific to announce at this time, but please stay tuned for future news and updates around the Power Rangers brand.
I would take that as, "Yeah we might be working on something, but we have no idea of whether or not it's going to pan out." Clearly the end of the first film teased the Green Ranger reveal, so we already know Hasbro is interested. At this point I think it's more or less the company deciding on an idea to move forward on, and then they'll make a more concrete announcement.
Personally, I was not a huge fan of the new Power Rangers film, but I'm not necessarily mad a sequel is in development. What are your thoughts on the new franchise?
If you're still wondering whether or not the scene at the end of Inception was reality or a dream, Michael Caine might have an answer for you. The actor revealed even he was confused when he first received the script for the film, and didn't know which parts of the film took place in reality and which ones took place in a dream. Caine recently revealed at a London screening for the film (via Syfy Wire) that Christopher Nolan helped him understand things more easily, and told him the scenes he was in were real:
"When I got the script of Inception, I was a bit puzzled by it, and I said to him, 'I don't understand where the dream is. I said, 'When is it the dream and when is it reality?' He said, 'Well, when you're in the scene it's reality.' So, get that -- if I'm in it, it's reality. If I'm not in it, it's a dream."
Well, there's the answer, Inception has a happy ending. That said, Nolan has gone on record to say the ending of the film is meant to be intentionally ambiguous, so if you're someone who really doesn't want this film to have a happy ending, be sure to point that out when someone mentions this quote.
That said, I've always been curious: were you a fan of Inception's ambiguous ending, or did you feel like you needed an answer for what happened?
The first trailer for Tajiri P. Henson's What Men Want has arrived, and all I can say is I hope this gender-bent reboot is better than the original which starred Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt.
Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world… until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest (Aldis Hodge) to the test.
What Men Want also stars Tracy Morgan, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Josh Brener, Tamala Jones, Phoebe Robinson, Max Greenfield, Jason Jones, Brian Bosworth, Chris Witaske and Erykah Badu.
Adam Shankman (Hairspray, Rock of Ages) directed the film and it opens in theaters on January 11, 2019.

A new ad for The Nun has some folks pissed off, and others laughing as it utilizes a classic jump scare technique to fool those on the platform. As you can see from the thumbnail below, the ad starts with a black screen, and the volume indicator on the computer going wild. Keep in mind, this isn't your actual volume being manipulated, but by the time you figure that out you'll be startled by an incredibly loud noise and The Nun's face!
It was jarring for me and I even knew it was coming, although I'm not sure we can fault a horror film for scaring people with its marketing. That said, I know some people who want no part of this film, and would be furious to see an advertisement for it so unexpectedly. Take a look at the video below (via Slashfilm) and let us know if you think it's funny or a bit shady that The Nun marketing team is doing this:
The struggles of MoviePass to stay alive has been crazy to watch, although it would appear the company is just getting started with the crazy. Uproxx is reporting some members have cancelled their accounts, only to receive word from MoviePass that the company decided to resubscribe them in light of recent changes! That's right, people are getting pissed online because MoviePass is re-signing them up for the service and sending the following message:
Please note: if you had previously requested cancellation prior to opting-in, your opt-in to the new plan will take priority and your account will not be canceled.
So basically, MoviePass is telling those that cancelled and then accepted a new opt-in promotion towards the end of their billing cycle that they've been signed up yet again and their cancellation has been cancelled. Truly, this is some shady shit:
What's even crazier is that folks who tried to cancel again were reporting errors on their side that wouldn't let them cancel:
I finally canceled my @Moviepass subscription yesterday and today I got this email. Then I tried to quit AGAIN, and it wouldn’t let me. What kind of Twilight Zone shit is this pic.twitter.com/1lv1OG2we3
I finally cancelled MoviePass around a month or so ago, although I did get an email from them a couple days ago that prompted me to unsubscribe from their mailing list. Here's hoping that wasn't a notification that they signed me up yet again. If so, I'll be sure to add my name to the list of people getting screwed by the service!
Puzzle makers, never before has a puzzle been released with this much sex appeal. Your long steamy nights of puzzle solving will only get more intense with these sensual and super cheap Jeff Goldblum themed puzzles. Each puzzles costs about 9 pounds, or $11.49 in U.S. currency, which in my opinion is quite a bargain. Check out the offerings below, and if you're thinking of making a purchase, click here for more information.
James Wan is a super busy guy these days with all the projects he's attached to, but apparently not so busy he can't find a little time to help out The Conjuring universe in its latest endeavor. The Nun director Corin Hardy told EW Wan was more than willing to help out and shoot some additional scenes for the film, which means some of the footage for the upcoming film was actually shot by Wan:
Very excitingly, James Wan was my second unit director in a little bit of additional photography. It is funny, but we did some additional photography, and you're always pushing for double what you really can afford, time- or budget-wise. I said, 'I want to do all of this, but if we're going to do it, we really need to run two units.' James is a full-on, hands-on guy and he was like, 'Anything I can do of service!' It was like, 'I really want to take you up on that.' So, there were nights when he was shooting a section in the forest and I was shooting interiors.
That's super impressive considering Wan was working on Aquaman and is currently developing the Swamp Thing series! I guess these guys wouldn't be great directors if they weren't masters of time management right? The Nun opens in theaters September 7th.
If you've been looking for a way to play your favorite games from the Floppy Disk area, a solution might be simpler than you think! I personally am not that technically inclined, nor do I really care for Floppy Disk games that much, but even I think I'm capable of putting in the grunt work to make this hack work, which is actually really impressive. Check it out below if you're wanting to try it out for yourself:
Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool 2 crew took a lot of shots at Hugh Jackman and Logan during filming, but Reynolds assured THR it was all in good fun. The actor even confessed he stole the music box from the film, which featured the scene where Wolverine was impaled on a branch and said he'd like to give it to Jackman as a gift:
Hugh is one of my closest friends, and I would never want to do anything to put him in an awkward position or something that he wouldn't be proud of. The only thing that was a surprise to him was the Logan music box in the beginning of the movie. That is something I felt like I could take some creative license with. I still feel like I need to give him that music box, because it is rightfully his, not mine.
I love it, and I love Ryan Reynolds. I can't wait to pick up Deadpool 2 on Blu-Ray August 21st, how about you?
Ray Romano had a blast working with Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro on The Irishman, and apparently he got a little healthier as a result as well. Romano said Pacino accidentally ribbed on Romano during filming, and mentioned something about Romano working in a "fat suit." Romano, who wasn't wearing a fat suit during filming, then realized maybe it was time for him to lose some weight. Check out the story below, which is much better the way Ray tells it:
