Marvel’s Inhumans Banner Reveals Attilan

Marvel’s Inhumans series premieres in just over two months and audiences may finally have their first look at Royal Family’s ancestral home, Attilan. ABC’s latest foray into the comic book genre centers on the race of Inhumans first introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe during the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the network’s flagship Marvel TV series. Although there are currently no concrete plans to connect the two shows, they do exist within the same shared universe, as is the case with every Marvel series.

Transformers: The Last Knight Scores $265 Million Worldwide Debut

Transformers: the Last Knight brought in a franchise low in its North American debut this weekend, but the fifth entry in the franchise impressed internationally, earning $265 million in its first five days.

International box office gross has become more and more crucial to the success of major blockbusters over the past half-decade or so, in particular the rapidly growing film market in China. The Transformers franchise has been at the forefront of this new internationally focused trend, as 2014’s Age of Extinction earned more than billion dollars worldwide despite posting a then-franchise-low $245 million in the United States. Out of that $1.1 billion dollar gross, 78 percent came from international markets, with a massive $320 million coming from China alone.

Daredevil’s Vincent D’Onofrio Says He’d Take a DCEU Role

Vincent D’Onofrio may be looking to join the DC Extended Universe, saying that he would accept a role in the shared universe if one was offered to him. Warner Bros. has numerous DC Comics projects in the works, and rumors (however outlandish) have suggested that they plan on releasing three to four of those movies per year in the near future. If that happens, then audiences could become inundated with dozens of new characters, and those characters need people to portray them on the big screen.

Madchen Amick Says Riverdale Season 2 Will Have a ‘New Looming Threat’

Riverdale season 2 will have a “new looming threat” showing up in town. Against all odds too, the CW series – based on the long-running Archie comics – went from what was originally an unexpected comic book adaptation to being one of this year’s most critically-acclaimed new TV shows. By taking the characters, settings, and iconic relationships at the heart of the Archie comics, Riverdale added different tonal and aesthetic influences into its story, that kept it from being just another CW teen drama. Instead, it was equal parts pulpy mystery, romance, thriller, noir, and horror show, with key inspirations taken from David Lynch’s beloved Twin Peaks.

Mark Hamill Says Jar Jar Binks Tongue Candy Goofiest Star Wars Item

Legendary Star Wars actor Mark Hamill says the Jar Jar Binks tongue candy dispenser is the goofiest piece of all Star Wars merchandise. Hamill, of course, is the driving force (for lack of a better word) of the Star Wars franchise after introducing moviegoers worldwide to Luke Skywalker 40 years ago. But as much as Hamill has enjoyed being a part of the Star Wars saga in the classic trilogy – as well The Force Awakens and the upcoming The Last Jedi – he’s been a fan of the Star Wars experience, too, both as a collector and show host of the Comic Con HQ web series Pop Culture Quest.

Forces of Destiny Writer on the ‘Everyday Heroism’ Of Star Wars Women

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny writer Jennifer Muro has shared some details about her vision for the series and the powerful female characters in the Star Wars universe. The animated canon miniseries, which will air on YouTube and Disney Channel starting on July 10, 2017, will feature sixteen three-minute episodes taking place around all eras of the Star Wars universe, and focusing on the “everyday heroism” of female characters like Leia, Jyn, Rey, Sabine and Ahsoka.

While the late Carrie Fisher broke ground in her role as Princess Leia in the original trilogy, the Star Wars franchise has only grown stronger in its portrayal of female characters with Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso in the first anthology film Rogue One and Ahsoka Tano in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels.

Wow! Bill Pullman Didn’t Even See Star Wars Before Spaceballs

A young Bill Pullman gave a hilarious performance as the Han Solo-like space pilot Lone Starr in Mel Brooks’ parody film Spaceballs, and he did it without ever seeing Star Wars. In addition to this shocking admission, Pullman has also revealed other secrets behind the production of Spaceballs, including Mel Brooks’ concerns about the possibility of blue screen work causing actors to suffer loss of vision.

Pullman was an unknown performer with just a couple roles under his belt when he landed the role of Lone Starr, a cocky pilot who flies around in a space Winnebago with his half-man/half-dog companion Barf (John Candy), and comes to the aid of Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) after she’s kidnapped by President Skroob (Mel Brooks), Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) and the evil Spaceballs. Despite his lack of experience, or maybe because of it, Pullman didn’t think he needed to prep for his big break comedic role by actually studying the source material upon which the parody was based.
