Elijah Wood is truly going out of the box and trying to shake the kid actor image with his next film, a remake of the 1980 cult classic Maniac. Maniac worked completely due to its truly terrifying and moody atmosphere and this remake, at least based on the current trailer seems to be recapturing that mood and creepy-ness. Wood has tried going this way before to reinvent himself but this film, for better or worse, may be the one that actually succeeds! We’ve got an exclusively downloadable version of the newest red band trailer for you right here! You can stream it or download it, whichever you choose you should definitely watch this!
There’s a substantial amount of TV news to cover this week lead by the new trailer for the series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. FOX also has a new scifi show from JJ Abrams and there’s a Sleepy Hollow thing happening and a Dracula series too. We check out the shows and trailers and break them down for you. We hit on the new issue of Ultimate Comics Spider-man, talk about Gatsby and we have an early review of Fast and Furious 6!!
The Spring game is technically over but there are still numbers to report because Oblivion and Pain and Gain still brought in money over the weekend! The biggest news is that Niko has officially taken over the #1 spot of both the contributor and listener brackets! He broke $400 million leaving Bill’s $393+ million total.
Here are the numbers so far:
This week we talk videogame announcements, fantasy film ball, and dildos but that’s all a distant second to the in depth Iron Man 3 analysis!
This week we cover the major Star Wars news of the week, discuss Spider-man, Star Trek TV, consider how hard it is to understand Vin Diesel, proclaim an Spring film ball winner, and oh Niko shares a story with us about the longest penis in the world. Nuff said….
What we have here is something new and very different for this here website. We’ve added a reality TV blog to the site and now finally we launch the official podcast! Stephen, Nathan, and Catherine rip into reality TV with reckless abandon and hit on food shows, drag competition, singing show, ducks, and even divers! Oh there’s porn with a focus on backdoor discussion, like we said definitely different and a ton of fun!
We have been working on some ways to get more folks playing fantasy film ball with us each block! Now if you’d like to join us there is a way! The lists posted to the right of this page, which we highly encourage you to like and follow as part of List.ly are now posted on our Facebook page. You can go to the page and do two things: first Like the list that you think will win the block, second make a comment on said list. After the game is over we will do a random drawing of the people that liked and commented on the winning list. The winner of the drawing will get prizes from CineGeek and be offered the opportunity to play in the special listener’s bracket of the game alongside a group of podcast listeners. If you win that bracket then you’re playing with the contributors to the site! So come join in what do you have to lose!
Likes much be in by mid May to be considered! No waiting until the game is almost over to pick the winning team!
Here’s the Facebook site:
Box Office Mojo has released their predictions for the summer box office. They of course didn’t make predictions for every film but what they have posted are their top 20 films. So, we thought it would be fun if we sorted the top 20 films by which of the contributors here at CineGeek won the movies in the Fantasy Film Ball bidding last week to see if we can make a guess at who might win the summer. Now this is truly “What if?” sort of writing because there are several films that we won in bidding that weren’t in the top 20 and those could easily add up to put a particular player in the winner’s circle. So really what we have here is a demonstration of how the top 20 earners are distributed among the players. Also, the dollar estimates are based on a given film’s entire run and our game only focuses on the first four weeks. The amounts below are in millions. So this is just for fun. Lets take a look:
Monsters University $280
The Hangover III $150
Two Guns $95
Star Trek Into Darkness $250
The Great Gatsby $105
Iron Man 3 $400
DespicableMe 2 $300
Fast and Furious 6 $215
The Heat $155
The Wolverine $125
The Smurfs 2 $115
Grown Ups 2 $110
Man of Steel $290
Pacific Rim $145
White House Down $140
The Lone Ranger $135
World War Z $135
After Earth $105
It’s that time again! We’re bidding for summer blockbusters and there are a tone of them! The whole show starts with fights for Iron Man 3, Star Trek 2, and Great Gatsby! There’s Wolverine, Pacific Rim, Smurfs 2, Despicable Me 2, and Monsters University and that’s just a few of the 40 films we all had to play for. Soon we’ll have each of our winning bids posted and you can pick which list you think will take summer game. This season the losing contributor goes to the listener bracket so the competition is even stronger this go around.
It’s time for the summer block of film ball bidding! With 40 films this promises to be an “epic” fight to get to the good stuff! We have two games going, a listener bracket (listeners/viewers of the weekly podcast) and of course the site’s contributors. Bill won the last listener game so he will be joining the contributors game this block with Jonathan returning to try and dominate the listeners once again. This season we will be posting everyone’s movie lists after the bidding is complete so that you can pick a player to follow and join their team! Which list will have that winning mix of movies to take the game? It all starts Wednesday night when the bidding begins live on the webcast on Ustream at 6:30 central time. To view the show live just go here (6pm central Wednesday preshow, 6:30 main show begins and bidding!)
