There are big things afoot in the world of The Walking Dead. The series is about to undergo one of the most monumental changes the group has ever gone through, and it is one that will have a lasting impact. To tease the next episode, “Remember,” AMC has unveiled a new promo and a fresh clip from next week’s installment. Just a warning, there will be spoilers for those of you not current on The Walking Dead, so proceed with caution.
That poster for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron that dropped yesterday is a bit of a mess. Sure, it’s big and epic, but with the entire team assembled, plus the swirling swarm of dozens of faceless villains, it’s a crazy photoshopped jumble of oddly sized characters (Hulk is like a million feet tall while Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch are damn near toddler size) and is definitely not the best promo the studio has ever produced. Today brings another poster, one that is way better than the last, and a message from Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., teasing some big news on the horizon.
You know your movie has problems when even the star comes out publicly and says it was terrible. That’s the case with After Earth, the 2013 M. Night Shyamalan-directed, Will and Jaden Smith-starring sci-fi flick that missed the mark in many, many ways. It was so generally trashed that it’s actually a surprise it’s taken this long, but After Earth is now the subject of one of Cinema Sins’ “Everything Wrong With…” videos.
If you’ve ever seen one of these videos, you should be well aware of what you’re in for. As usual, some of the complaints are legitimate, like problems with the awkward structure that flashes back and forth willy nilly, some questions about the scientific side of things, and how everything on an abandoned Earth has evolved to kill humans, despite the fact that humans haven’t been on Earth in thousands of years. Others are nitpicky.
Before he was Star-Lord, before he battled genetically enhanced dinosaurs, and before he plays (maybe) Indiana Jones, Chris Pratt was best known for his portrayal of schlubby, loveable goof Andy Dwyer on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. That seven-year journey came to an end last night on the series finale, which was funny, touching, and almost everything you could ask for. But it also brought two of Pratt’s worlds together as eagle-eyed viewers may have noticed an awesome Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Egg.
Divergent, the adaptation of the first book in Veronica Roth’s best selling dystopian young adult series, didn’t exactly set the world on fire with critical praise, but it made more than enough money to ensure that we’ll be seeing the remainder of the trilogy on the big screen. Sure, it wasn’t Hunger Games money, but not many movies without the words Marvel or Transformers in front of them do that. Part two, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, is less than a month away—you can officially buy your tickets starting today—and Summit Entertainment has released the final trailer.
If you’ve been paying attention, or even just know what the whole story is all about, there isn’t much here that will come as any great surprise. There’s lots of running through the woods, lots of fighting, and, of course, tons of angsty teen romance, which is mostly made up of deep stares and heavy breathing. There’s also a healthy dose of those crazy, fever-dream-looking visuals that you have to imagine occur when heroine Beatrice “Tris” Prios (Shailene Woodley) goes on one of her internal journeys.
It feels like it’s been coming forever, but this weekend most of us will get our first opportunity to watch Fox’s new comedy, The Last Man on Earth. What we’ve seen so far looks pretty damn entertaining, with Will Forte playing the title character, roaming the remnants of the planet alone, trying to fill his days. In anticipation of the debut, Fox has released a new promo, some clips from the show, and a quick behind the scenes look at the series.
You get the sense in this promo that the title may be somewhat misleading and that Phil (Forte) may not actually be the dictionary-definition last living person on Earth. You see a hand holding a gun, hear an off screen voice, and, if you’ve checked in on IMDb, you’ll notice that at least a handful of other actors who show up in multiple episodes. So if you’re a stickler for truth in show titles, there may be an issue.
