Elmo fixes feud between Cersei and Tyrion in Game of Thrones

By: Jak Connor | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 6 days, 16 hours ago

There is fewer characters in Game of Thrones who hate eachother more than Cersei and Tyrion Lannister, but is all hope lost for the brother and sister relationship? Elmo to the rescue!



In a new and very clever video that has been released onto the official Sesame Street YouTube Channel, Elmo is pitted against two of Westeros' masterminds. The video begins with Cersei and Tyrion negotiating over a cup of wine, when the talk hits its peak both Tryion and Cersei hear some rumblings below the table they are sitting at. To there amazement they see a fury red fellow in armor begin to sit at the table with them, shortly after Elmo begins to speak about having respect for each other.


Sesame Street has done a fantastic job of reminding people that they need to have respect for each other even if there is a feud that needs to be worked out. Elmo even provides strategies for people to take into account if they do have a disagreement with someone. He reminds people to always respect each other and also to make sure to listen what each other have to say. I must say this is quite a clever thing that Sesame Street has done and overall the message of the video is a very positive one. Perhaps Elmo should be the one to sit on the iron throne at the end of this season?

Disney+ will include ENTIRE movie library and more for $7

By: Jak Connor | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 1 week, 5 days ago

Disney has showcased their upcoming streaming service planned for launch this November. The service will include everything Disney, and when I say everything Disney - I mean everything.




So what will be coming to Disney+ when it launches? Firstly, Disney will be throwing together most of their IP (excluding R rated content) movie and TV show wise. By the end of the year, Disney plans on having 5000 episodes of Disney Channel Shows, over 100 Disney Channel Original Movies as well as all of The Simposon's episodes.


Periodically over the course of the year Disney plans on rolling out 40 more movies that include National Geographic series' and documentaries. At the moment Netflix will retain the Marvel Cinematic Movies, but no doubt after their contracts are up Disney will be pulling them from Netflix's service and placing them on their own platform.

Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan tease Rush Hour 4 on Instagram

By: Jak Connor | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: Apr 8, 2019 10:00 am

One of the most staple comedies out there has to be the Rush Hour franchise, gaining quite a lot of support over the years many fans have requested for a fourth movie to made. Nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet, but we do have a teaser from quite a reliable source.



The tease has comes from Rush Hour actor, Chris Tuckers official Instagram page. The image shows Tucker with other Rush Hour star Jackie Chan holding up both of their hands with four out-stretched fingers. Back in 2017, Chan revealed that for seven years he had been declining scripts for Rush Hour 4 but was then finally presented one that met the franchises standards.


While this isn't a confirmation of any sort, this certainly is a big hint that Rush Hour 4 could be on its way to becoming a reality. The first question that came to mind would be while else would these certain actors be posing like this if Rush Hour 4 wasn't a possibility?Hopefully sometime this year we get an official confirmation for a new movie, as I'm sure many fans - including myself - would be very excited to see what it would be have in-store.

Game of Thrones changes the 'medium of television' forever

By: Jak Connor | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: Apr 8, 2019 9:00 am

As we are moving closer to the release of the final season Game of Thrones the actors of the show have begun doing the interviews about the coming season.



Collider did an interview with John Bradley, who plays Samwell Tarly in the show has explained how he believes Game of Thrones has changed the landscape of television forever. He says that Game of Thrones stands as an example of how televison can rival cinema in terms of ambition, visuals and more. Here is what he had to say; "A lot of the TV that comes after [Game of Thrones] is taking lessons from it and using it as a springboard in terms of what can be achieved through the medium of television and how, given the right set of people and the right circumstances, it can rival cinema, and it's got a right to be ambitious."


Bradley continued and said; "It's created a whole new sense of ambition in TV that wasn't really there before. There has never been anything on this visual scale before. And I think TV is no longer seen as a kind of poor cousin of cinema. I hope that TV going forward feels that we've empowered it to be as ambitious as we've been." If you have been keeping up with Game of Thrones and are amongst the communities that have been created around the show, I think you'd agree with Bradley's statements. Game of Thrones seems like the biggest TV show yet universe size wise, it stands as a staple example that fantasy can be a massive success on TV when done correctly.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: Apr 2, 2019 9:47 am

Shazam hits theaters in just a couple of days time but the newest entry into the DCEU has already been making a huge splash in early reviews which are glowingly positive, with a tease that Superman might make an appearance at the end.



As an avid reader of /r/DC_Cinematic I'm used to leaks on DCEU movies and have been lurking there for ages and ages now, and have been flicking through virtually everytrhing on Shazam. Well, scrolling through just now I see a new post that is a behind the scenes reel from MTV News that is titled "Making of 'Shazam!' w/ Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong & More".


This video contains a few seconds with Shazam himself, Zachary Levi, says he's "pretty proud to play the only character in all of comic book, uh, lore, anything in the DCEU who, um, could legitimately beat Superman... and I'm looking forward to maybe one day getting to fight Henry Cavill. I think that would be friggin' awesome". Skip to 1:26 to see Levi's comments on Henry Cavill as Superman.




As it stands, it is not confirmed if we'll get a sequel to Man of Steel or if Henry Cavill is still even playing Superman. Cavill has teased quite a few times on his personal Instagram that he loves Superman, kind of like code of 'hey WB, I'm still here and waiting for that call'.

Superman with a mustache from Justice League reshoots leaks

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: Apr 2, 2019 2:57 am

We all know the horrors of the utterly near universe-destroying bad decisions Warner Bros. executives made with the Justice League reshoots, taking control of the movie away from Zack Snyder during his time of need, and butchering Justice League in the end with Avengers' director Joss Whedon's changes.




If you forgot, Henry Cavill grew a mustache for his role in the kick ass Mission Impossible Fallout, but then WB fired Snyder, slapped a 2-hour time limit on the movie and had Whedon reshoot a bunch of it. The reshoots completely ruined Snyder's five-part story arc he started with Man of Steel and continued with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice but had his world shattered and destroyed, even worse than Superman's mo.




Superman looked like a joke in most of his Whedon-shot scenes, with already questionable CGI the scenes that Whedon re-shot of Superman are bad. We have, until now, only seen Superman without the mustache and his badly-done CGI. The bottom half of Cavill's face is a total disgrace, but they had a lot to work with since Henry has some good facial-hair-growing DNA, I guess.

Apple is attempting to hit convenience right on the head with their new video streaming app Apple TV+. Apple TV+ is a premium version of the already released Apple TV but instead includes all of Apple's exclusive content and third-party content in one simple app. The announcement of the premium version was accompanied by a reboot announcement of Amazing Stories from Steven Spielberg's production company. Oprah Winfrey is also joining in on Apple's new service, while Steve Carrell, Jenifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon are working on a new comedy called The Morning Show.


Apple have said that they plan to release this new premium service "this fall" in over "100" countries around the planet. It should also be noted that the new service will be ad-free and everything can be downloaded to enjoy when offline. What TV channels will Apple also be including? Yesterday I reported that HBO, Showtime and Starz would be arriving on the streaming service, and each of these channels would cost $9.99 each, more on that story here. Apple is touched on Apple News+ which is the news version of their streaming service. Instead of video content, Apple will make "over 300" publications available in one convenient newsworthy place, for just $10 a month. For more information, visit this link here.

A new report has come out from the Wall Street Journal that shines a light on the coming new streaming service from Apple. The potential Apple TV replacement is set to feature HBO, Showtime and Starz shows.




According to The Wall Street journal, Apple is about to unveil a brand new TV streaming service with a new app. It is unclear whether or not this new app will replace Apple TV, or will be standalone. The contents of the app would be similar to that of Amazon Prime Video Channels, except it would have channels such as HBO, Showtime and Starz. It is said that each of these channels would cost a $9.99 fee.


The report also says that Apple is aiming to have all of their content featured in a uniform app. They ultimately believe that having a single app that allows for each individual user tick and untick what content they would like to see (News, new TV shows, popular apps etc) will ensure the most convenient user experience. Apple is set to unveil the new video streaming service and Apple News subscription this Monday.

Pixar has just released the first official trailer to Toy Story 4, which sees the iconic characters of the beloved franchise returning for another adventure. Check it out:



We know that Woody meets up with Bo Peep again in Toy Story 4, which is going to have fans of the franchise happy, as well as lots of tears shed during the movie I'm sure. We do get to see in the new Toy Story 4 trailer a new character called "Forky", which Bonnie adds to her collection of friends and I think plenty of hilarious antics will happen from this character alone.


Disney Pixar explains Toy Story 4's synopsis: "Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called "Forky" to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy".
