Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.
From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes—a second generation with no loss of quality.
Olivia Wilde, Anna Kendrick, and a brewery. I'll be attending this press screening.
I know who the dudes are as well, they just don't market as easily as Wilde and Kendrick, for obvious reasons. Livingston has had quite a diverse acting career but he'll always be meeting with the "Two Bobs" in my mixed up mind. Jake Johnson is a riot on New Girl, he looks to be hitting his stride, now in his mid 30s.

Kate (Wilde) and Luke (Johnson) are coworkers at a brewery who have one of those will-they-won’t-they friendships. Unfortunately, beyond uncertain chemistry, they are also each in a relationship. Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). Jill wants to take their relationship to the next level, but Luke isn’t ready to commit … especially when he and Kate find themselves spending a weekend alone.
Pacific Rim requires a change of course if it is to be the mega-blockbuster Warner Brothers/Legendary Pictures hopes and what many online pundits think it will be.
Skyscraper-sized robots trading punches with likewise-towering monsters in a futuristic environment sounds awesome, if we lived in Japan and this was 1970. We live in this era of Transformers (Stating a fact; not a preference). So anyone to come along the scene with the same promise of robot destruction had better distinguish themselves.
And in that sense, this new trailer succeeds, though it isn't a game-changer wiping off the "For Geeks Only!" stigma.
In the near future, giant monsters identified as "Kaiju" have risen from a crevice in the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war which takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity's resources. To combat this new threat, a special type of weapon is designed: massive robots, known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. As time passes, even the powerful Jaegers prove almost defenseless in the face of a relentless enemy. On its last stand and on the verge of defeat, the remaining defending forces of mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to pilot a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the early trials of the mechanical titans. Together, they must stand as the human race’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
In an interview with Total Film in August, Jeremy Renner said that he wasn't necessarily happy with how Joss Whedon and Co treated Oliver Queen Clint Barton AKA: Green Arrow Hawkeye...
For 90% of the movie, I'm not the character I signed on to play," says Renner, before homing in on the decision to have Hawkeye brainwashed by Loki from the get-go. "It's kind of a vacancy. [He's] not even a bad guy, because there's not really a consciousness to him."
"To take away who that character is and just have him be this robot, essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses... I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. Fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No."
Well, Comic Book Movie apparently has caught whiff of a RUMOR going around that Green Arrow Hawkeye might undergo the "War Machine", "Bruce Banner" treatment of a brand-new actor, because Marvel isn't too happy with Renner.
The source hints that there's the tiniest chance Renner will reprise his role in The Avengers Sequel but the source also said there is a greater chance Hawkeye will be recast (like War Machine and the Hulk have been recast before). Finally, the source said if Hawkeye is to be recast there is a solid chance he could be incorporated into the new television show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a primary character.
Well, what do you think?
Personally, I think Renner is absolutely right about Green Arrow Hawkeye not really being Hawkeye. We got more from Maria Hill than we did from Hawkeye, who's an AVENGER not a dumpy SHIELD side-kick.
Guess we'll see; but given Marvel's bad rep with their stars lately, who knows?
The Riddick series has its fans, besides Vin Diesel and David Twohy.
Surely they see the regression in scope with the trailer for Riddick. What started as a cool, little sci-fi/horror actioner morphed into, what was supposed to be, a bigger story of a criminal-turned-hero with oft-comparisons to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and original Star Wars trilogy.
That didn't come to pass as The Chronicles of Riddick, intended to be the start of a trilogy with Pitch Black serving as its Hobbit, wasn't the bona fide hit they hoped. So now while fans got their wish, still surprised this came to pass, this looks, acts and feels like a retread of the afore-mentioned 2000 creature-feature. Not sure this is what they had in mind.

After winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) returns home to District 12 along with fellow winner Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). After shortly returning home, they must embark on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts, leaving behind their close friends and family.

This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
A loose adaptation of Stanislaw Lem’s “The Futurological Congress,” a 1971 black humour science fiction detailing the exploits of the hero of a number of his books, Ijon Tichy, as he visits the Eighth World Futurological Congress at the Costa Rica Hilton. The book is Lem’s take on the common sci-fi trope of an apparently Utopian future that turns out to be an illusion.
