Sean Parker, founder of Napster, is trying to bring Civil War and other high-profile films to your home on release day. What's crazier is he has the support of guys like Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, and J.J. Abrams saying that his new service, Screening Room, is a good idea.
Screening Room, according to Guardian, is a service that will allow you to get first-run films screened directly in your home. One movie costs $50, and $20 of that goes to the theaters who would lose your business. The set-top box itself will cost $150 and will come with anti-piracy measures, and is designed to draw in an audience who does not currently go to theaters at all.
Are the obscenely wealthy not attending the movies?! $50 for a single showing of a film?! I might do that once in my life if I were able to find a bunch of people to chip in! Furthermore, I would not buy a special box for the service that I would, once again, only use once. No wonder the film industry is loving this idea...they're making out like bandits!
Maybe families with multiple children would benefit from this? From a two person household, I'm not seeing the light! Am I missing something?
Warner Bros. teamed up with Doritos for the release of this new featurette for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The video shows off some new footage from the film as well as interviews with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, and a couple others. They briefly talk about the movie and the characters they play.
We only have 10 more days to wait before we finally get to see Batman and Superman unleash the fury on each other! The movie comes out on March 25th.
Mission “run away or kill the zombies” will start once again soon, as EW has unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming second season of Fear the Walking Dead. Just when we thought the zombie action was over as this season of The Walking Dead comes to a close, the new season of the spin-off is so close that we can actually taste the smell of dead (but walking) bodies. One week after TWD's Season 6 finale hits screens (April 3), the prequel series is going to remind zombie fans that the undead stories haven’t really died away.
This new trailer shows the main characters wandering around by land and sea. And judging from what we can hear and see, life on land doesn’t seem to offer many safe places. Zombies are pretty much everywhere!
Fear the Walking Dead is produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and David Alpert. It features Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam Carey as Alicia, Rubén Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Masöhn as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris, and Colman Domingo as Strand. The second season is going to air 15 new episodes, and the premiere is set for April 10.
Sony Pictures has released the first red-band trailer for Seth Rogen's R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party and it's absolutely hilarious! There were moments in this trailer that had me busting up with laughter. Rogen has described the film as an "R-rated Pixar-style movie" and after watching this trailer, I can't wait to see it.
“Sausage Party” is an ‘R’ rated theatrical animated movie about one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale.
The movie was directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens) from a script written by Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir. It also has a great voice cast which includes Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek.
The movie premiered at SXSW and I hear it's been getting a lot of positive buzz. So if you are looking for a laugh, it looks like this movie is going to deliver it. Sausage Party arrives in theaters on August 12th.

The Adventure Time LEGO playset concept that popped up on LEGO Ideas last month got 10,000 supporters and has officially been approved by the company. The playset idea was created by aBetterMonkey and LEGO officially announced that they’ll be bringing it to life. This will be an awesome Adventure Time collectible, and if you’re a fan of the series, you’ll want to get your hands on this. Here’s the description:
Characters of cult cartoon Adventure Time got the Lego treatment in the form of brick-built figures. Sturdy builds with basic poseability were the goal to make this a toy set rather than a display model. The small scale used helped make the parts count low at 640 bricks for fifteen characters with accessories.
The characters included in the set are Finn with his sword, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Lady Rainicorn, Marceline with her axe-bass, BMO with joysticks, the Ice King with ice lightings, Gunter, Lumpy Space Princess, Tree Trunks, Flame Princess, Ricardio, Earl of Lemongrab with his sword, the Lich with green flames, and the snail.
A mysterious teaser trailer has surfaced for a sci-fi film called Code 8. The trailer was posted on Stephen Amell's Facebook page, and he says this is a project that he has been working on. He also reveals that his cousin Robbie Amell and Fast and Furious actor Sung Kang are involved with the project as well. Both of them are briefly featured in the teaser. There’s no word on what Amell’s role in the project is, but I imagine he will be in it.
There’s not much more information about this film other than that and what you’re about to watch in the teaser below. This looks like an intriguing film, and it seems to take place in the near future in Los Angeles. It’s set in a world in which robot cops are hunting down mutants. The teaser trailer reveals the basic concept saying, “4% of people possess abnormal abilities” but “make up 60% of all arrests.”
We will have more information on March 22nd when I expect we’ll see a full trailer. We’ll keep you updated on this project as more information becomes available.
