Comic-Con 2013 may be in full swing, but that doesn't mean those of us stuck at home are completely left out. Although 'Kick-Ass 2' will be showing off all kinds of new footage for the folks in Hall H this week, we get to check out a new TV spot for Jeff Wadlow's upcoming sequel. Sure, it's not the same, but it'll do for now.
The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.
Although the 'Jackass' brand seems to have officially run its course after a TV series and three (very successful) movies, the name will live on in a new spinoff movie titled 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.' Awkward title aside, it sounds like it'll feature everything about the series that has entranced and disgusted so many people. Namely, grown adults doing terrible things to themselves and others in public places.
After years of pumping out amazingly awful, bargain bin TV movies, SyFy finally hit the big time with 'Sharknado.' For the first time, one of the network's movies was so silly, so dumb and so instantly meme-able that the world-at-large took notice and made it a thing. People were actually talking about 'Sharknado'! Real people! So it's no surprise that SyFy has announced a sequel. After all, they probably have a spare $137 lying around to fund it.
What's more powerful than a bunch of giant robots and giant monsters? What's more powerful than Adam Sandler and all his buddies? This weekend gave us a definitive answer: a lovable supervillain voiced by Steve Carell. 'Despicable Me 2' triumphed at the box office for the second week in a row, beating out newcomers like 'Grown Ups 2' and 'Pacific Rim' and making it look easy.
Which would you expect to win the Fourth of July weekend: the Disney-produced, Johnny Depp-starring revival of an iconic American hero or the sequel to a French-made, Steve Carell-starring animated movie about a lovable supervillain? Well, it looks like American audiences simply aren't interested in westerns, even the uber-expensive ones starring Captain Jack Sparrow with a bird on his head. 'Despicable Me 2' destroyed 'The Lone Ranger' over the holiday weekend. Like, totally wrecked it. Mercilessly.
First, we heard Steven Spielberg and George Lucas warn of a coming change in the way we go to the movies. Then, 'World War Z' had that $50 "Mega Ticket," which gave viewers access to all kinds of additional goodies. Now, Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' is getting in on the action, offering a $20 "SuperTicket" that will include special bonuses. The only catch is that it's for Canadian audiences only.
A full-length 'Delivery Man' trailer has debuted, and only time will tell if it's better than the Google advertisement that was Vince Vaughn's last movie, 'The Internship.' But if we're going by first impressions, the new flick looks like it'll be the far superior effort.
Although San Diego Comic-Con is traditionally known for its massive panels celebrating the most-anticipated films and most-popular TV shows in the geek world, it also plays host to countless other projects, many of which often seem to get lost. Hopefully, that won't happen to 'The Sidekick,' a new superhero-themed short film that will premiere at Comic-Con 2013 and has some pretty big ambitions.
What happens when two new releases that look like sure-things smash into the unstoppable wall that is a Pixar movie? Well, you get one second place hit and one severe disappointment. 'The Heat' still looks good next to the continued success of 'Monsters University,' but it made 'White House Down' stumbling at the starting line look all the more horrible.
Now that 'Iron Man 3' has officially passed the $400 million mark at the box office, Tony Stark's third solo adventure is just about to leave theaters and head straight to your home media collection. In a few months, you'll be able to purchase Shane Black's delightful superhero adventure for yourself on DVD and Blu-ray, but will it be worth it? Marvel has released the details of the package to help you decide if the special features will push this one into the "must buy" column for you.
