HE'S REALISTIC!

Look, it's Jamie Foxx as Electro on the cover of EW. He doesn't look silly and awesome with that silly and awesome yellow mask. He looks realistic and "Ultimatey." I like silly and awesome.

IT LOOKS JUST LIKE THE OTHER ONE...BUT IN ENGLISH!

Here's the trailer for Spike Lee's version "Oldboy." Looks like he pays tribute to the classic hammer scene by totally redoing it! Eh...all snark aside, it looks okay. Also NSFW!

MUST READ!

Pacific Standard goes behind the scenes of the gloriously insane movie company The Asylum.

The question is: For the love of God, why?

“The short answer is: We don’t know,” says David Michael Latt, the Asylum’s co-founder and head of physical production, who pushes as many as 25 films into production each year. “It’s not like we said, ‘There aren’t enough crappy B-level movies out there, so we must corner that market!’ We don’t really know the consumer. The consumer is too big and too fractionalized. All we know is we’re making a film for Netflix, and they tell us what they want.”

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

Watch the trailer for "Seventh Son." Looks like Jeff Bridges has officially entered that "just having fun and making money" phase of his career.

'Til tomorrow, gang!
