Cult of Chucky Director Taunts Pirates Who Leaked Sequel Early

55 minutes ago

Piracy is nothing new in Hollywood, but it continues to be a big issue. One of the most recent movies to fall victim to piracy is Cult of Chucky, the forthcoming seventh installment of the Child's Play franchise. The movie recently leaked online in its entirety and director Don Mancini, as one might expect, is none too happy about it. Unfortunately for those who leaked Cult of Chucky online, Universal's lawyers aren't thrilled either.

Don Mancini took to his Twitter account to address the leak of Cult of Chucky. Even though the movie isn't going to be a major release for the studio, there is a lot of excitement surrounding it from horror fans. But leaks like this can really hurt a small movie that isn't going to get any help at the box office. Those who leaked the movie didn't handle the situation with a lot of stealth, as »

1 hour ago

Mohammed al-Hathri, a secretary and educational chief in Saudi Arabia was fired after Star Wars character Yoda was spotted in a text book next to a Saudi King. In most places, Yoda showing up in a textbook wouldn't be such a bad thing, but it ended up costing al-Hathri his job after students noticed the clearly Photoshopped image. Education minister Ahmed al-Eissa has described the incident as an unintended mistake while also announcing that new versions of the textbook were already being produced to fix the Jedi Master error.

But, he stated that all of his fears went away once the script came in. Here's what the actor had to say below.

"I was fortunate enough to have gotten to meet with Ridley and talk to him about it first while he was writing it (Blade Runner 2049 script). So I knew that it was something he not only approved of but was actively involved in. And Hampton Fancher, the original writer, was also working on it with him so that was a good sign and then they sent it to Harrison when they were finished. He loved the script, »

Rey Reunites with Han Solo and Chewbacca in New Star Wars Animated Short

4 hours ago

One reason fans are angry that J.J. Abrams is returning to director Star Wars 9? Because the rest of the Star Wars team has had to do some huge recon to fix various plot holes the filmmaker left in the wake of The Force Awakens. One way Lucasfilm is doing this is with a series of animated shorts called Star Wars Forces of Destiny. And an upcoming installment plans to explain how and why Rey was so proficient at flying and fixing the Millennium Falcon.

This animated short will also reunite Rey with Han Solo and Chewbacca. As the mighty trio were only ever together in The Force Awakens timeline before Han Solo's untimely death at the hands of his own son, Kylo Ren, this latest short could very well be considered a 'deleted scene' that fixes some of the plot holes fans have questions ever since Star Wars 7 was released »

5 hours ago

It may have gotten bumped to number two at the box office in its third weekend of release, but people are still flocking to see Pennywise the Dancing Clown do his stuff. The movie is a certified phenomenon. And people just can't get enough of the Losers' Club. We've been seeing a lot of mashups lately. But the latest really 'eats the kid' as it were. Someone has decided to give Pennywise an anime makeover. And It is almost a little too perfect.

It is now officially the highest grossing R-rated horror movie of all time (as long as you don't count inflation into the mix). Pennywise has surpassed Pazuzu as the biggest money earner on the big screen. And though Tim Curry played the character first in the 90s, Bill Skarsgard has gained full ownership of the clown. Some were skeptical at first, but this incarnation of the child »

Daniel Craig Wants Blade Runner 2049 Director for James Bond 25

5 hours ago

Perhaps we won't know who is going to direct James Bond 25 until it finds a proper home with a distributor, as Sony and Warner Bros. continue to fight for the rights, alongside Amazon and Apple, with plenty of other studios vying for the option to own a piece of 007. But now we know who Daniel Craig wants. And it's none other than Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve.

Denis Villeneuve is at the top of Daniel Craig's personal wish list, according to Daily Mail. The sequel is in the very early days of pre-production, and as far as everyone knows, the screenplay isn't even locked in at this stage. The movie will be the fifth and final time that Craig returns as 007. So whoever takes the helm, you can expected it to be someone special.

The trailer comes to us via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_9OSktlm6s|20th Century Fox YouTube, and it looks just as dark as you can imagine. Thankfully, the first look at the movie doesn't spoil anything about the plot, but »
