This Is The Alien 5 Role That Louis C.K. Wants

fb share tweet share

Louis CKNow that Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie is officially happening, we can start the rampant speculation about casting and plot and all the fun little details that go along with a project like this. As this is going to be a pretty big deal, you have to imagine that all kinds of people in Hollywood are going to be interested in joining the party, and one star has already thrown his hat into the ring. Comedian Louis C.K. says he wants to be cast and then killed off in the next Xenomorph adventure. We can totally get behind that.

It wouldn’t be a true Alien movie without franchise stalwart Sigourney Weaver (we don’t really count the Alien Vs. Predator movies), and we certainly hope that she’ll return. She worked with Blomkamp on his latest, Chappie, and reportedly was part of the inspiration for his idea for the film. We don’t know yet if she’ll be back (on potential report says this could be a prequel, so it’s hard to imagine how she fits in), but she talked about the possibility on The Tonight Show and dropped the bit about Louis C.K.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Begins Like This

fb share tweet share

star wars the force awakensFor many of us, that moment on December 18, when we sit down in that movie theater and the lights go down for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is going to be something we’ve been waiting a long, long time for. It’s hard not to get a little bit giddy about the prospect of seeing new Star Wars on the big screen, and now, thanks to a new report making the rounds, we’ve got an idea of what we’re going to see right off the bat.

As usual, there are potential SPOILERS beyond this point. Also, this is an unconfirmed rumor from an unnamed source, so take it with a grain of salt and make of it what you will. PSA over.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy Animated Series Lands A Cast

fb share tweet share

guardians of the galaxyGuardians of the Galaxy has an entirely new cast. Sort of. We’re not talking about the blockbuster movie. No, Marvel has those actors locked up for years and multiple movies. So don’t worry, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper aren’t going anywhere on the big screen, but the animated Guardians series the studio has been working on has put together all the key pieces of its voice cast.

Will Friedle will lend his vocal chords to Star-Lord, Vanessa Marshall will voice Gamora, David Sobolov has signed on as Drax the Destroyer, Kevin Michael Richardson will say “I am Groot” quite a bit as Groot, and Trevor Devall brings his talents to everyone’s favorite smart-ass, gun-toting raccoon, Rocket. There you have it, the main core of the cast of the animated Guardians of the Galaxy.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Violates The Laws Of Space And Time And Taste

fb share tweet share

hottubtimemachineposterlarge-2-578x391Lets be honest, you probably already know if you want to see Hot Tub Time Machine 2 or not based on the first one, the crude, crass style of humor, and the cast. This is generally the kind of foul-mouthed comedy you either like or you don’t, and it delivers exactly what you expect on that front.

I legitimately enjoy the first movie. It’s hard to claim that it’s great art, but it’s self-aware in a fun way, witty between dick jokes (and I’m certainly not at all opposed to a well-timed dick joke), the story moves along at a good clip, and there’s even a kernel of heart and friendship underneath it all. The second one, however, has none of these redeeming qualities.

The hot news of the past day or so has to be that Neill Blomkamp is going to direct a new Alien movie, which is, admittedly, pretty damn awesome. But well before that, we still have his robot drama Chappie coming down the pipe shortly. It looks like an action packed combination of RoboCop and Short Circuit, and now we’ve got two new clips to check out.

Doctor Who Has An Epic Comic Crossover Planned, Details Here

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoWhile Doctor Who may be on the Twelfth incarnation of the venerable Time Lord on the TV, numbers Ten and Eleven (and soon to be Nine) are still very much alive and kicking in the pages of Titan Comics various continuing series. Thus far the three versions of the character have been kept separate on the page, but there’s something big in the works, as there is a three-way crossover planned.

Scheduled to drop this summer, David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi’s Doctors will come together for one big adventure in the TARDIS. Written by Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Batman & Robin, as well as tons of TV work a few Doctor Who novels), this is going to be a five-part affair.
