Every so often, some of the local comic creators, shop owners and geeky media types around the region where I live get together for breakfast at a neighborhood cafe. One of the topics of conversation at a recent meet-up was the late, great Jack Kirby, the cocreator of the Avengers, the X-Men and countless other iconic comic book characters. At the time, the local comics crew was in the midst of organizing a fundraiser in honor of Kirby's birthday, and at one point some of the people present – possibly due to the obscene amount of coffee that had been consumed – began running through a checklist of characters created by the legendary creator known as “The King.” It became a game of sorts, with everyone naming off a Kirby-created character, one after...

Blended - Warner Bros. - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Frank Coraci Cast: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Joel McHale, Kevin Nealon, Wendi McLendon-Covey. Full cast + crew Adam Sandler's been on autopilot for awhile now, with each lame new comedy drying up the well of good will he earned in the '90s and early '00s. So you'd expect Blended, his latest rom-com with costar Drew Barrymore, to be yet another Grown Ups or That's My Boy, but it's actually kind of a sweet movie about two single parents past their prime trying to move on with their lives. It's also got an absurd premise and is way too long at nearly two hours in length, but it's charming, Barrymore is delightful and it isn't riddled with a lot of...

Movies about Bigfoot are all the rage these days, and we’ve got a brand-new trailer for the latest Sasquatch-ploitation epic, Eduardo Sanchez’s Exists.   Sanchez, who codirected The Blair Witch Project, takes a group of young adults to an isolated cabin in the woods in his latest effort. The difference is that these kids don’t encounter evil spirits or a bunch of spooky sticks hanging in trees – instead, they run afoul of Bigfoot himself. Here’s the official plot breakdown: “For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway— a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of...

Did anyone miss Jean-Claude Van Damme in The Expendables 3? How could they when the Belgian action star has been making so many commercial appearances lately? The guy has risen as one the most notable pitchmen on television over the past year, showing up in hilarious spots for GoDaddy, Volvo and now Coors Light.  For the beer brand, JCVD is not just pulling an ice block on a sled with his mullet. He's not just carving a bull's head ice sculpture by kicking it. And he's not just destroying giant icicles with his powerful roundhouse to the sound of an awesome '80s-era action movie-style synth score. He's building an ice bar in the mountains, like one that you can win a trip to if you're a resident of the U.K.  Yeah, this is an ad for Coors...

There's still more than a month left before Gone Girl comes out, and I'm scared of being spoiled on the mystery. Did Ben Affleck's character kill his wife, played by Rosamund Pike? Did Neil Patrick Harris do it? Did Scoot McNairy do it? (Did I do it?) Yet the thing is, while the trailers and a new TV spot keeps us intrigued with wonder about who done it, that's not the sole reason to be excited about this movie. No way that director David Fincher would make a movie that's just about the endpoint. He made Zodiac, after all. And even The Game and Se7en are about more than their twist endings.  Gone Girl looks like a winner in part because of its cast, and in this new ad we see a little more of McNairy than we had in the past, making us curious not just...

Producer Roger Corman has had an epic career, but it often feels as though the maverick filmmaker might be best remembered for his biggest failure than his myriad successes. Back in the early ‘90s, long before comic book movies were raking in record amounts of cash, Corman attempted to make a movie based on The Fantastic Four. Then everything went wrong. Trying to make a superhero movie with roughly a $1 million budget seems insane, but Corman and his team gave it their best effort. The film never saw the light of a projector bulb, thanks to studio politics and shady Hollywood business. The Fantastic Four has since turned up online, and it’s really pretty terrible compared to today’s comic films. Of course, with that tiny budget, how could it not be...

We hope you love sequels, because we’ve got all kinds of news about the next installments in franchises you already love in today’s roundup. Director Ridley Scott is 76 years old, an age where many of his compatriots are well into retirement and spending their time in a tropical locale. However, the Alien director isn’t ready to hang up his camera just yet – and to prove he's still got it, he has multiple projects in various stages of development. Of all those films on his docket, people are most interested in his long-awaited sequel to Blade Runner and the follow-up to his quasi-Alien prequel Prometheus. EW recently caught up with Scott, who offered up a status report on both features. The current state of Blade Runner should leave fans pleased...

"He was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy." -- Billy Crystal on Robin Williams The Emmys took place last night -- the first time they aired on a Monday in decades -- and of course the show came packed with all sorts of memorable moments. Aside from Breaking Bad and Modern Family repeating as the year's best TV shows (in the drama and comedy categories, respectively), there was one specific highlight that really hit home as the night's most emotional moment. Following a beautiful In Memoriam segment, in which Sara Bareilles softly crooned a version of Nat King Cole's "Smile," Billy Crystal appeared onstage to say a little something about Robin Williams. And in typical Crystal fashion, it was very personal and honest, as if we were all...
