Marvel has released a snippet of the Doctor Strange sneak peek that will be included on the upcoming Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray. In the special feature, we get a few more details and even more footage from the movie including better looks at Chiwetel Ejifor’s Karl Mordo, Tilda Swinton’s The Ancient One and Mads Mikkelsen’s villain. The movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch and opens in theatres on November 4th.

According to a report from Variety, Richard Linklater is set to direct the long-in-the-works adaptation of the novel Last Flag Flying, with Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, and Laurence Fishburne in talks to star. The movie is a sequel of sorts to the 1973 film The Last Detail starring Jack Nicholson. Last Flag Flying tells the story of former Navy petty officers (played by Nicholson and Otis Young in the original film) coming to the aid of ex-con (then portrayed by Randy Quaid) who is trying to bring home the body of his son, who was killed in Iraq. A release date has not been set.

Focus Features has shifted the release date for its upcoming film A Monster Calls, and it could signal a shift in its awards strategy for the movie as well. Instead of going wide in late October, A Monster Calls will now be released in a limited 10-city run on December 23rd before going wide in 1,500 theaters on January 6th. This release strategy proves it has the potential to be a major holiday hit while allowing buzz to build, just as Oscar nominations ballots are due.

The Warcraft movie suffered from some harsh reviews and took in only $47 million in the U.S.; but fared much better overseas, ending its run with a gross of $433.5 million worldwide. And because of its global haul, the prospect of a sequel is not entirely out of the realm of possibility. During an interview with Thrillist, Duncan Jones addressed the prospect of making a sequel, saying he’s definitely game given how much time he’s already invested in the franchise.


The debut trailer for James Franco’s adaptationin-dubious-battle-james-franco of the John Steinbeck novel In Dubious Battle has finally been released. Scripted by Matt Rager, the film revolves around an apple picker strike in 1930s California. Paper Towns star Nat Wolff leads the pic, with Franco assembling an impressive ensemble that includes Robert Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio, Selena Gomez, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston, Sam Shepard, Danny McBride, Zach Braff, and Franco himself. The movie has yet to receive a release date.

Saban Films has released the latest trailer for Rob Zombie’s upcoming freak show horror movie, 31. The movie stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm McDowell, Jeff Daniel Phillips and Meg Foster. The movie tells the story of five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large compound and forced to play a twisted game of life or death called 31. Zombie wrote and directed the film, which will have an October 21 release.

Hey, Collider Crew

I was talking to my friends about Inception, because they loved it so much, and I remember really not liking it. I loved the plot and Leo’s storyline, but I remember not liking the execution of the action, and I remember being really, really bored during most action sequences.

Seeing as it has been 6 years (and after discussing the film with them I realized there’s a lot I don’t remember about it that well) I decided I’m gonna rewatch it, because I fear I might have the “wrong” opinion about it. So, my question is, what movie do you feel/felt the need to re-watch, because your opinion was so opposite of everyone else’s that you think you missed something?

Greetings from Portugal!
