‘Detective Pikachu’ Movie Rumored To Feature Either Of These Actors

Tyler Lee October 18, 2017

If you’re a fan of Pokemon, then you might have heard that Legendary Pictures managed to land a deal to make a live-action Pokemon movie, which last we heard would be based on Detective Pikachu. Last year we learnt that the movie has found its director in the form of Rob Letterman, but what about those who might star in it?

That particular information has yet to be revealed, but recently during The Hashtag Show (via IGN), it was rumored that Legendary is considering four different actors to potentially voice the character. What’s particularly interesting is that this list contains actors that are probably more known for their roles in action films.

According to the report, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Mark Wahlberg, and Dwayne Johnson are apparently in consideration and are the studio’s top choices to take on the role, although it should be noted that none of the actors have yet to take any meetings regarding the role, so while they might be a top pick, whether or not they’ll actually take up the role remains to be seen.

Production of Detective Pikachu is expected to begin in London in January next year, which means that a release will probably be in 2019 at the earliest.

Tyler Lee October 16, 2017

Marvel has been pretty successful with their movie releases in recent times, so you can imagine that many are also excited to see how Marvel will be able to pull it off with the upcoming Black Panther movie where the movie’s protagonist first made his appearance in Captain America: Civil War.

For those curious about how the show might look like, wonder no more because Marvel has since released the official trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie. The release of a trailer came as a bit of a surprise, although in this case it was a nice surprise and gives us a taste of what we might be able to expect.

The movie will star Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa who is the king of Wakanda, and the film’s antagonist will be played by Michael B. Jordan (of Creed fame) who will be playing the role of Eric Killmonger. We are also seeing other big names like Forest Whitaker, and will also see the return of other characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the form of Martin Freeman (first appeared in Captain America: Civil War) and Andy Serkis (first appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron).

The Black Panther movie is currently set for a release on the 16th of February, 2018.

HBO Has New Measures To Prevent Game Of Thrones Season 8 Leaks

Adnan Farooqui October 15, 2017


HBO wasn’t able to keep all of season 7 a secret as it had to deal with cyberattacks that led to some leaks. The cable giant now has now measures in place to prevent Game of Thrones season 8 leaks. It’s the show’s final season and one that’s being anxiously awaited by tens of millions of fans across the globe. A new report details the measures that HBO has taken to ensure there are no leaks.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the actor who plays Jamie Lannister on the show, recently revealed that HBO is going to extreme lengths to prevent Game of Thrones season 8 leaks.

He mentioned that during the first few seasons, actors were sent hard copies of the script in advance. HBO later introduced new security measures and only distributed the scripts on digital files, it eventually came to the point where actors would only get their parts through verified email.

Coster-Waldau says that the security for the final season is greater than ever before. That’s understandable, given that HBO had to deal with stolen season 7 files. HBO isn’t even giving scripts to the actors.

Actors are actually equipped with earpieces in each scene and they’re given their dialogues line by line. They only find out about their fate in the final season when they show up on set for filming and not a moment before.

Talk about being paranoid, but HBO is operating on the idea that it’s better to be safe than sorry, and I’m sure that fans who hate spoilers will be happy that it’s taking extreme measures to prevent Game of Thrones season 8 leaks.

Movie Studios Reportedly Join Forces For Digital Locker Service

Tyler Lee October 11, 2017

When it comes to consuming video content online, there are many ways one could go about it. You could purchase a movie/TV show via platforms like iTunes, you could also rent movies to watch temporarily, or you could purchase a subscription to a streaming service like Netflix or Hulu where you can watch as much as you want.

However it seems that the movie studios are banding together for a download service. In a report from Bloomberg, this new service is said to be led by Disney and will basically allow customers to purchase movies online and store them in digital lockers that will give users access to the movie across their various devices.

Prior to this such services did exist with Disney’s Movie Anywhere and UltraViolet, both of which were competing services. However according to the report, this new service will basically see movie studios like Fox, Warner, and Universal joining forces with Disney to create a singular service, which we reckon would be a lot more convenient.

Nothing has been officially confirmed yet but Bloomberg claims that this new service could be announced as soon as this week. If true it will be interesting to see how this might differ from Disney’s upcoming streaming service and how the company plans on differentiating the services from one another.

Apple Working With Steven Spielberg For Amazing Stories Reboot

Adnan Farooqui October 10, 2017


Apple’s intention of making more original video content is no secret. The company has sent aside a lot of money to pour into these efforts and it seems to have found the right project to spend some of that money on. Apple is reportedly rebooting the popular anthology series Amazing Stories which was produced by Steven Spielberg, a legendary director, producer, and screenwriter who needs no introduction.

The original Amazing Stories series ran from 1985 to 1987. Every episode would tell a different story on topics that would range from scary to magical. NBC canceled it after its second season but it did win five Emmys over the two years that it was on the air.

The Wall Street Journal reports today that Apple has signed a deal with Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment production company to reboot Amazing Stories. They will be producing 10 episodes in the new series in collaboration with NBCUniversal’s television production division.

There’s reportedly a budget of $5 million per episode. The report doesn’t mention if Spielberg will be involved with the project as a director but he’s likely to serve as an executive producer on the new series as well. Bryan Fuller of Hannibal fame is said to be the showrunner.

It’s not known for sure right now when filming will begin so it’s likely going to be a while before we get to see what the Amazing Stories reboot looks like.

Hulu’s Cheapest Streaming Plan Is Even Cheaper Now

Adnan Farooqui October 9, 2017


Hulu has decided to cut the price of its cheapest streaming plan for a limited time. This particular plan includes commercials so you will have to put up with ads. According to a new report, Hulu is taking this step because it wants to further increase its subscriber base as it gears up to launch new original content this fall. Hulu did offer a similar deal for new subscribers in the fall last year.

Hulu previously charged $7.99 for its cheapest streaming plan which includes commercials. The same plan is now available for $5.99 per month. Bear in mind that this price cut is only for new and “eligible returning subscribers.”

Not only do the new subscribers get the first month free but they also lock in this limited time price for their first year. They will have to pay $7.99 per month thereafter. This special offer is available through January 9th, 2018 so you have until then to subscribe to Hulu at a reduced price if you haven’t already.

Those who want a commercial-free option will have to pay $12 per month for Hulu’s service. This also includes a live TV streaming service that Hulu launched a few months back.

This, coupled with a new marketing push by the company, should enable it to bring in more subscribers before its new original content hits.

New Pacific Rim Uprising Trailer Has Giant Robots Battling Each Other

Tyler Lee October 8, 2017

If seeing gigantic robots battling it out against each other and monsters, then you might be interested to learn that the latest trailer for the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising has since been released, giving us a look at the various robots and new monsters that we can expect from the movie.

For those unfamiliar, Pacific Rim Uprising is the sequel to Pacific Rim that was released in 2013 which is 4 years ago. The original was very well-received which explains why many are looking forward to its sequel. However from what we can tell in the trailer, the sequel is taking things in a slightly different direction.

We can see robots fighting against each other, whereas in the previous movie it was pretty much the robots versus the monsters, or Kaiju as the film calls them. We’re not 100% sure how the movie will play out but it definitely looks action-packed. It will star John Boyega in the lead role and will see the return of the some of the show’s previous characters like Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman.

The movie is currently set for a release on the 23rd of March, 2018, but in the meantime you guys can check out the trailer above.

New Justice League Trailer Released

Adnan Farooqui October 8, 2017

A new Justice League trailer has been released today. It gives us a glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming superhero movie. The trailer makes it seem like it’s all doom and gloom in the world following the events of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The movie is going to pick up from there and promises to provide a lot of action-packed entertainment.

The world tries to cope up with rising tensions, war, and violence after the death of Superman. That’s not all, though. There’s a new kind of danger that threatens the world, it prompts Batman a.k.a Bruce Wayne to begin his search for the other superheroes that will eventually form the Justice League.

“The world needs Superman, and I made him a promise, which is why I’ve brought you together,” Wayne is seen saying to the other superheroes, telling them that “Divided, we are not enough.”

We get a glimpse of the battle scenes that we’ve seen in the trailers that have previously been released. Obviously, a lot of it has been kept under the wraps because the ultimate goal is to get you to spend your money to go see this movie.

DC’s Justice League is going to hit the big screen later this year on November 17th.

T-Mobile’s Netflix On Us Customers Won’t Be Affected By Price Increased

Tyler Lee October 5, 2017

Just last month T-Mobile launched a new promotion in which subscribers to its network would be entitled to free Netflix subscription. This is of course the standard subscription, but basically it’s still free so why not, right? That being said with Netflix planning to increase its prices in the US, how does this affect T-Mobile customers?

The good news is that it doesn’t. In tweets by T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere and the official T-Mobile Help Twitter account, they have confirmed that nothing needs to be done on the customers end because T-Mobile will continue to cover your Netflix subscription. Once again this is only for the standard subscription and anything more, like if you wanted the subscription with more screens and 4K (which costs more), you’re on your own.

However if you plan to keep sticking to the standard plan, then know that nothing has changed. Netflix’s price increase will see the company charge $1 more for the standard tier, and $2 more for the 4K four screens subscription tier, but the basic plan’s rate is still staying the same at $8 a month.

Netflix’s subscription rates have been on the increase over the years, but we guess with the company planning to invest as much as $7 billion in content in the near future, it looks like maybe they are hoping to cover their costs.

Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Returning For Season 2 In 2018

Tyler Lee October 3, 2017

If you’ve enjoyed Marvel’s TV series on Netflix such as Jessica Jones, then you will be pleased to learn that in a tweet by the show’s lead actress Krysten Ritter, it looks like the second season of Jessica Jones has been confirmed for a release in 2018. Prior to this we knew that a second season was confirmed, but a release date was unknown.

Ritter’s tweet does not mention any specific dates either, but we guess we can expect it in 2018.  Given that this year we are expected to see the release of The Punisher TV series also on Netflix, we guess it makes sense that Jessica Jones will only be released next year. Other Marvel TV series whose second seasons have been confirmed include Luke Cage and Iron Fist, which will hopefully redeem itself in the second season as the first season wasn’t as well-received compared to the rest.

The last time we saw Jessica Jones on the screen was in The Defenders miniseries which was released earlier this year, which saw Jones paired up with the rest of the Marvel characters such as Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. It will be interesting to see how the universe is expected to move forward, especially when Disney recently announced their own video streaming service and where they also confirmed that Marvel shows will be an exclusive to their service.

We know that Netflix is hoping to work something out with Disney, but if they don’t we’re not sure what the fate of these TV series will be.
