Google Thanos for a Traumatic ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Easter Egg

It’s clear which side Google is taking in the endgame. A Thanos Easter egg has been hidden in the Google search results for the Avengers: Endgame villain that does something a little drastic to your desktop. If you search for the word “Thanos,” you may see a little Infinity Gauntlet in the corner of the screen under the images. Go ahead, click on it. We dare you. Now you must live with what you wrought. As you may have seen, clicking on the Infinity Gauntlet icon makes it snap its fingers an...

‘Charlie’s Angels’ First Look Sends Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska On a Mission

The Charlie’s Angels first look is here, giving us our first glimpse of Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska in Elizabeth Banks‘ reboot. Although you probably shouldn’t call it a reboot. According to Banks, the new Charlie’s Angels is a “continuation” that actually references the events of both the original Charlie’s Angels TV series, and the two movies from the 2000s featuring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. EW has a big piece digging into the new Charlie’s Angels rebo...

Video Blog: Let’s Explore CinemaCon 2019’s Labyrinth of Movie Posters and Standees

Yesterday, Ben Pearson and I landed in Las Vegas to cover CinemaCon 2019, the annual gathering of movie theatre exhibitors. Over the course of the next few days, you’ll be seeing coverage from the convention – primarily reactions and recaps of the presentations held by the big movie studios showcasing their film slates for the next year (and maybe more). Before the presentations began, we recorded a video blog of us exploring the almost never-ending labyrinth of movie posters and film standees ...

Russo Brothers Confirm They’re Misleading Audiences Again With ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailers

When it comes to Marvel movie trailers, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that we shouldn’t believe what we see. Spider-Man was hidden from an airport fight shot in the Captain America: Civil War trailer, the Thor: Ragnarok trailers faked out audiences by including a key shot of Thor with both of his eyes, and an Avengers: Infinity War trailer threw us off by including a shot of Hulk running with Team Wakanda that never even appeared in the film. Now directors Anthony and Joe Russo have confir...

‘Shazam!’ Clip: Figuring Out Your Powers is Harder Than It Looks

Warner Bros. and DC are taking the DCEU in a lighter direction with Shazam!, the upcoming comedy about a kid who can transform into a full-grown superhero. Early buzz has been very positive, with critics praising its heart and humor, and now we can see more of that for ourselves in a brand new Shazam clip. In it, young Billy Batson (Asher Angel) has changed into the costumed alter ego (Zachary Levi) and seeks out his superhero-obsessed friend Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) to help him discover his ...

‘Rocketman’ Video Features Taron Egerton Actually Singing, Unlike a Certain Oscar Winner

If Rami Malek won an Oscar largely for lip synching as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, that should mean Hollywood is going to award Taron Egerton with an Oscar in the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman for actually singing…right? Egerton took the stage with the legendary musician to sing “Tiny Dancer,” and the timing of this performance strikes me as interesting: as Malek picked up his trophy on the Oscar stage, Egerton was belting out a tune and potentially kicking off a possible Best Actor ...

‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ Image Gives Us a New Look at Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers

Can Tom Hanks, the most wholesome of actors, taking on the role of Mr. Rogers, the most wholesome of humans, save the world? No, don’t be ridiculous – life doesn’t work that way. But it might help make things a little more tolerable, if only briefly. Hanks plays the unbelievably kind children’s television host in the upcoming film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and a new pic has arrived featuring the actor rocking one of Rogers’ famous cardigans. See the A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhoo...

‘Shazam’ Filmmakers on How the Movie Connects to the DCEU, Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, and More [Interview]

Last week, I joined a small group of journalists at a post production facility on the Warner Bros. studio lot to see a sneak peek of footage from the upcoming superhero film Shazam! After getting an early look at a few minutes of the movie, we spoke with director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran about the film’s connections to the DCEU, how the project evolved from the days when Dwayne Johnson‘s Black Adam was said to be involved, the film’s post-credit sequence, and much more.  Du...

‘The Boy 2’ First Look: Brahms is Back, And He Needs a Bath

Hulu is Now Planning to Run Ads When Users Pause Videos

Hulu is planning to roll out a new advertising format. The streaming service will soon start testing ads that play when users pause the video, an attempt to target binge-watchers who have begun to cut the cord for linear TV in favor of digital streaming. But it probably won’t gain them any fans among users who turn to streaming services explicitly to get away from commercial breaks. Hulu is beginning testing for a new form of advertising. The streaming service will begin showing ads whenever...
