Robert Forster Dies at 78

Max Cherry is no more. The Hollywood Reporter has received word that Robert Forster, a fixture in movies and television for half a century, has died. According to his publicist, the veteran actor passed away “on Friday at his Los Angeles home from brain cancer.” Forster was 78 years old.

Born in 1941, Forster caught the acting bug in college, and after a few years on Broadway, moved out to Hollywood. His first notable role was for John Huston in Reflections in a Golden Eye. Always a dependable performer, Forster also appeared in movies like AlligatorThe Delta Force and Disney’s The Black Hole. Although mostly cast as a supporting actor, he did play the lead in Haskell Wexler’s influential New Hollywood feature Medium Cool.

In 2019, most fi...

Homages to Movies and Comics

 Homages to Movies and Comics

Homages to Movies and Comics

The following post contains SPOILERS and Easter Eggs for Joker. We’re not being funny about this.

The new Joker movie tells a completely original interpretation of the Batman villain’s origin. This Joker (Joaquin Phoenix) is named Arthur Fleck, and he’s a struggling clown and aspiring standup comic who begins to lose his mind when Gotham City cuts off his access to his medication just as he’s beset by a series of personal tragedies. But if you think Joker doesn’t include references to DC Comics, the joke’s on you. In fact, it does contain several very pointed callbacks to classic Batman comics — along with a ton of homages to previous movies, particularly the works of Martin Scorsese (who was supposed to be an executive producer of Joker, once...

Ryan Reynolds At Home In The MCU

Ryan Reynolds doesn’t even go to this school yet and he’s already running it. Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently launched the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football League for charity. A dozen Marvel superhero stars are competing, and they are all Marvel Cinematic Universe stars — except for Ryan Reynolds of Fox’s Deadpool and Miles Teller of Fox’s Fantastic Four. They are, if anything, future MCU stars, but it’s clear Reynolds is already right at home with the rest of the dysfunctional trash-talking family.

Ryan Reynolds broke the internet with his f-bomb-filled fantasy football post against the MCU’s Nebula star, Karen Gillan...

Daniel Radcliffe Is Game To Join

Daniel Radcliffe

When Guns Akimbo director Jason Lei Howden joked about shaving Daniel Radcliffe’s head so he’d look like Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, and thus fit into the Fast & Furious world, the actor asked:

Daniel Radcliffe elaborated to MTV News that he does have a driver’s license, but he only uses it to drive around on sets. Otherwise, he doesn’t like to be behind the wheel and admitted he’s “bad at it.” Instead, Radcliffe joked about the Fast & Furious crew surely need someone in the operation to do their taxes or handle the administrative work, and he’s the perfect guy to play that behind-the-scenes character.

The unlikelihood that we’ll get an inside look at how Dominic Toretto and the gang handle their bookkeeping notwithstanding, it would be interesting to see Da...

Let’s Guess Marvel Studio’s Last Two 2022 Movie Releases

 Avengers Endgame

Avengers Endgame

When Marvel Studios took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con and announced the next five Marvel Cinematic Universe films, fans expected that would be all they would hear for a while. By announcing all of the big screen projects set to come out in 2020 and 2021, the Phase 4 slate was revealed, and there was no reason to believe that any more news was coming.

Then D23 Expo 2019 happened, and Ryan Coogler’s untitled Black Panther 2 was officially announced to be released on May 6, 2022.

This was a huge surprise, and there are still many unanswered questions that extend from it… but one particular angle we continue seriously mulling over is what it means for the rest of Marvel Studios’ output for 2022...

DC Closes Vertigo Comics

DC Closes Vertigo Comics

DC Closes Vertigo Comics

Today marks the end of an era in comics, as DC announced that it was shuddering Vertigo, the home of its comics for adults since 1993. Instead, DC will stick its own name on all of its books, with different labels to indicate their intended audience. “DC Kids” will be for children between the ages of 8 and 12. The main DC Comics series will be intended for children and adults age 13 and older. And “DC Black Label” will be the new home for mature content intended for readers over the age of 17.

Here is DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio’s statement on the news:

We’re returning to a singular presentation of the DC brand that was present throughout most of our history until 1993 when we launched Vertigo to provide an outlet for edgier material...

More great movies that take place in one location

Comingsoon.net is locked away trying to determine the best movies that take place in a single location. See our choices in the gallery below!

While it might not be the first thing on one’s mind when analyzing what makes a movie work, a movie’s setting is almost always integral to how the story plays out. If it wasn’t, there wouldn’t be such thing as a set designer, a costume department, a location scout, and so on. Sometimes all it takes to appreciate the importance of setting is to watch a movie that locks itself into one single location.

It sounds strange, but it’s actually a more common gimmick than you might think...

Fatherhood is a very complex thing, especially in the 21st century. Family structures of the past are not always prevalent in the lives of many people not just in America, but around the world. For some, a dad isn’t always the man they share half of their chromosomes with. For most, the honor of being called “dad” lies on the shoulders of the one who filled the role of the father figure—whether that’s a dad, a granddad, a mentor, or whatever...
