Jai Courtney Shuts Down Alita: Battle Angel 2 Rumors After Sharing Cryptic Photo
Despite failing to garner the kinds of box office numbers that had been hoped for, the cry for a sequel to Alita: Battle Angel has become one of the most passionate fan campaigns since The Snyder Cut. Excitement grew palpable following a social media post from one of the first movie's stars, Jai Courtney, who recently shared an image of himself in a motion capture suit, leading to rampant speculation that he was filming the eagerly anticipated Alita: Battle Angel 2. Sadly, Courtney has now cleared things up, debunking the rumors and revealing that the use of mo-cap was not for an Alita follow-up.

"I can tell you this, it wasn't for Alita: Battle Angel"

No doubt this will lead to the deafening sound of millions of disappointed groans as Jai Courtney crushes the hopes and dreams of the fanbase, now dubbed the Alita Army. the Alita: Battle Angel star did

Alita: Battle Angel Returns to Movie Theaters for Halloween Weekend

Alita: Battle Angel Returns to Movie Theaters for Halloween Weekend
The theater chain industry is in the deepest doldrums, and the situation shows no signs of improving in the near future, with most upcoming blockbusters postponing their release by several months to a full year. A small ray of hope was recently shone for distributors by producer James Cameron when he announced on Twitter that his film Alita: Battle Angel will be returning to theaters by the end of the month.

When it comes to a disconnect between the general audiences and hardcore fans, Alita: Battle Angel rivals the history of Zack Snyder's Justice League. Much like the latter, Alita: Battle Angel debuted in theaters to a lot of fanfare,

How Does Morena Baccarin Really Feel About Her Reduced Screen Time in Deadpool 2?

How Does Morena Baccarin Really Feel About Her Reduced Screen Time in Deadpool 2?
An unexpected highlight of the first Deadpool movie was the sparkling chemistry between Wade Wilson aka Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds, and his love interest Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin. So fans were disappointed when Deadpool 2 began with the death of Baccarin's character. Despite her lack of screentime in the sequel, the actress told ComicBook.com that the entire plot of Deadpool 2 hinged on Vanessa.

"I can understand that people felt that way and I certainly was disappointed that I didn't have more to do, because I just loved the part so much. But in watching the film and reading the script, it felt like such an emotionally pivotal role in the film and the entire arc of his character in the film is set into motion because of what happens to my character, that it felt that I was very involved in the movie even though I didn't have a lot of scenes.

Republican Convention Night 2 Review: Donald Trump Tries Reality TV Tactics To Show His Softer Side, But Shatters Norms Along The Way

Republican Convention Night 2 Review: Donald Trump Tries Reality TV Tactics To Show His Softer Side, But Shatters Norms Along The Way
Donald Trump tried to inject a bit of televised, reality TV moments into the second night of the Republican National Convention — but he did so by shattering political norms. A presidential pardon. A naturalization ceremony. A Secretary of State speaking from Israel. Even the spectacle of holding so many convention events from the White House, capped by a Rose Garden speech from First Lady Melania Trump, is something that no other president has done. In many ways, the night was less like The Apprentice and more like MTV’s Cribs, with the White House serving as a taxpayer provided backdrop. It’s likely to trigger a string of ethics complaints and watchdog lawsuits, but did it make for good television? For curiosity’s sake, maybe. Jon Ponder, pardoned by Trump, certainly had a compelling story. But less effective was an East Room naturalization ceremony that went on way too long,

‘Isn’t It Romantic’ DVD Review

‘Isn’t It Romantic’ DVD Review
Stars: Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, Adam Devine, Priyanka Chopra, Betty Gilpin, Brandon Scott Jones, Jennifer Saunders | Written by Erin Cardillo, Dana Fox, Katie Silberman | Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson

Isn’t it Romantic, directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (The Final Girls), is produced by and also stars Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson; with Liam Hemsworth, Adam Devine and Priyanka Chopra in a gloriously subverted romantic comedy. One that revels in the absurdly ridiculous conventions of the genre it derives from, with a razor-sharp screenplay that is full of life and energising wit.

The screenplay by Erin Cardillo, Dana Fox and Katie Silberman is the strongest and standout aspect of this fabulously meta-production. Think along the same lines of what Tim Miller’s Deadpool achieves (or Strauss-Schulson’s The Final Girls for that matter) in its satirical approach but replace the generic convention commentary from superhero genre to the romantic comedy sub-genre and

Ryan Reynolds Says He’s Still Trying To Solve The Leaked Deadpool Footage Mystery

Ryan Reynolds Says He’s Still Trying To Solve The Leaked Deadpool Footage Mystery
The release of Deadpool in 2016 was a huge success and sparked a trend towards more adult-oriented superhero fare that until then had been typically marketed with a more general audience in mind. It might never have come to pass though had some test footage not been leaked to universal acclaim, and Ryan Reynolds has now tweeted a video questioning who did it.

Made as a parody of Unsolved Mysteries, the video riffs on the show’s opening sequence, using the same music and subjecting shots from the Deadpool movies to similar visual effects of lens flares, gentle fading and images just out of focus. It commemorates the four-year anniversary of the footage arriving online and going viral faster than an obvious analogy it would be really insensitive to make right now.

It’s why the next #Deadpool film is taking so long. Still trying to solve this. Happy #Leakaversary pic.

Rob Liefeld Says He’ll Be Fine If Marvel Never Makes Deadpool 3

Rob Liefeld Says He’ll Be Fine If Marvel Never Makes Deadpool 3
Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has a lot of opinions about the future of the character. Like, a lot. First, he said Kevin Feige and company had zero plans for Deadpool 3. He eventually clarified those comments though by saying he wasn’t privy to any updates on the third film in the Ryan Reynolds-led franchise, therefore he wasn’t confident we would see it anytime soon.

Now, Liefeld is going from doubt to appreciation for the two Deadpool movies he was a part of. In fact, he’s said he’ll be fine if the threequel never happens at all. During a conversation with Collider, he spoke about some great memories from making the first two as well as accepting the fact that we might not see the character again, saying:

Will Cable Get His Own Movie, or Is Disney Done with Josh Brolin's Deadpool Character?

Will Cable Get His Own Movie, or Is Disney Done with Josh Brolin's Deadpool Character?
Rob Liefeld is the brains behind the creation of the comic book character Deadpool and has been keeping a close eye on the movie adaptations of the character immortalized by Ryan Reynolds. Liefeld is also one of the co-creators of Cable, played by Josh Brolin in Deadpool 2. In an interview with Collider, Liefeld revealed his hope for a solo movie series for Cable, a hope which is shared by Brolin as well.

"Cable should have his own movie series. He can exist independent of Deadpool in a heartbeat. He has for years. If Deadpool's been in like 330 comics, Cable's been in about 520. Yes, I've counted.... In between Deadpool 2 wrapping and opening, I got really close with Josh. And he was very excited about exploring Cable in the subsequent sequels. The X-Force standalone movie that was, in his own words, Cable-centric."

Rob Liefeld Says There May Not Be Another Deadpool Movie

Rob Liefeld Says There May Not Be Another Deadpool Movie
Disney’s buyout of Fox couldn’t have come at a better time for the X-Men and Fantastic Four, as both of those properties had lost their way under the latter studio and desperately needed a reboot within the McU. It’s a different story for Deadpool, though, as the Merc with the Mouth had hit his groove, coming off the back of Dp 2 and was set to head into both an X-Force team-up movie and Deadpool 3.

Obviously, fans are looking forward to seeing Ryan Reynolds appear alongside the Avengers in the McU, but Marvel taking over his reins has caused all the previous plans to be thrown out. While we’ve been told that another Deadpool movie is on the way, creator Rob Liefeld has now cast doubt on one actually happening.

In a chat with Collider, the comic book writer/artist revealed his outlook on whether it

Terminator: Dark Fate Star Says It’s Insane To Think Fans Want A Sequel

Terminator: Dark Fate Star Says It’s Insane To Think Fans Want A Sequel
Mackenzie Davis is not confident another Terminator movie will get made after the disappointing box office performance of Terminator: Dark Fate. While promoting her new film, Irresistible, she was asked about the prospects of returning to the blockbuster franchise and said:

“I really loved the movie and I’m so proud of what we did, but there wasn’t a demand for it [at the box office] and to think that there’d be a demand for a seventh film is quite insane. You should just pay attention to what audiences want – and they want new things and I want new things,” she explained. “There are many interesting people that don’t fit the mould of those who make these big franchises who have not had the chance to make movies. We should be investing in them right now.”

She’s right about paying attention to what an audience wants. Terminator: Dark Fate earned

What's Really Up with Deadpool 3? Morena Baccarin Has No Idea

What's Really Up with Deadpool 3? Morena Baccarin Has No Idea
For all their comedy and gory action, the two Deadpool movies with Ryan Reynolds are at their heart love stories. In the movies, Morena Baccarin plays the role of Vanessa, Wade Wilson's girlfriend who is the main motivator for his becoming Deadpool in the first movie, and trying to end his life in the second one after losing her. But although Deadpool 2 ends with Wade and Vanessa reunited, Baccarin revealed that she does not know if she has a bigger role in Deadpool 3.

"I have no idea. Apparently, they're still writing it. I genuinely don't know. I have not been asked, or approached. There's been no conversations yet, so I'm waiting with bated breath."

Many fans criticized Deadpool 2 for killing off Vanessa early on just to provide fuel for Wade's personal journey in the film, and then undoing even that negligible amount of character development for

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Moving Forward at Paramount

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Moving Forward at Paramount
This time last year, things did not look good for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. The first trailer for Paramount’s adaptation of Sega’s video game franchise had just been released, and the backlash was severe.

It was late April of 2019 – which feels like an aeon ago now – that we got our first proper look at the ‘live-action’ version of the beloved blue hedgehog, and it revealed that certain design decisions had led to him sporting human teeth, for reasons that are still fairly mystifying. To put it bluntly: it did not go down well, and a hasty redesign was soon on the cards.

“Thank you for the support. And the criticism,” said Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler , which must have taken some seriously swallowed pride at the time. “The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Is Officially Happening

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Is Officially Happening
It's official. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is speeding into development. Paramount Pictures and Sega have confirmed the news this afternoon. The sequel will have Jeff Fowler back behind the camera, along with Pat Casey and Josh Miller writing the script. The cast has yet to be announced, but Jim Carrey has already revealed that he was just getting started with the Doctor Robotnik character and was looking forward to a sequel to fully realize the villain. Now, it looks like he'll get a chance to do so.

According to sources close to the deal, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is in the development stage with no production start date on the horizon. This makes sense since most of the entertainment business is still on hold at the moment. Paramount is well aware of that after the first installment's theatrical run was cut short. However, in the brief amount of time the movie was in theaters,

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World Is Returning to Theaters for 10th Anniversary
Edgar Wright has revealed that Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World is returning to theaters. The director made the announcement after tweeting along to the beloved cult movie live on social media. Wright also revealed a ton of information about the movie during the live event, including the fact that the video game Michael Cera and Ellen Wong play was animated by Tim Miller, who would later go on to direct Deadpool.
