Watch: 'The Rings of Power' Title Reveal for Amazon's 'LOTR' Series

The Rings of Power

A new age begins… Gather ’round, Lord of the Rings fans! Amazon has revealed the official titled and logo for their new LOTR series: The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powers. The series begins streaming on Prime Video this September, and is the moxt expensive TV series ever made, with a budget at around $1 billion in total for the production. "Amazon Studios' forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth's history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien's pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness." We still haven't seen any other footage yet, just a first look photo, but that's it. This opening cinematic and logo reveal is not CGI - it was created and filmed practically. The sequence was made by FX master Douglas Trumbull last year in secret in LA (via IGN). Take a look.

Calling all action fans - this is the 2022 preview you didn't know you needed!!

There Is a New Viral Marketing Website for 'The Batman' to Follow

The Batman Viral Website

"Have you ever been to the Iceberg Lounge?" There's a new viral website for Matt Reeves' upcoming The Batman movie, discovered by fans a week ago. And while there is one file hidden on the site, not much is there yet. But this is exciting news. Most will remember the viral marketing campaign for The Dark Knight (called "Why So Serious?"), as it's highly regarded as the best Hollywood viral campaign ever. Might this be an early hint that they're preparing something like this again for the next Batman? Who knows. The site was discovered by deciphering code hidden on a new cardboard standee for the movie that appeared in a movie theater recently. Surprise, surprise. If you look closely, there's coded text written on the bottom left corner (photo below). Once deciphered, fans discovered that it points to a new website - which looks like a basic terminal for a server and includes a text prompt with green text. Answer a few questions, or rather, answer a few riddles (ha ha ha) and you'll be given a "reward" - a jpg image with three GCPD sketches of The Batman.

'The Infinity Saga' - A 50 Hour Chronological Supercut of MCU Movies

The Infinity Saga

"It was never just a heist!" Time for something truly epic. You've heard of Marvel marathons, you've heard of supercuts, but what if you took every MCU movie to date and put them together into one extraordinarily epic supercut? Yes. Someone did this. A Reddit user called "pizzabryon" has put together and illegally fan-released this supercut which he has dubbed simply The Infinity Saga. Another fan already tried to edit everything together in what is known as "The Sacred Timeline Cut" (a reference to "Loki" and the timeline with all the MCU events), but this one is slightly different. The Infinity Saga takes "every MCU movie from Iron Man to Endgame" (23 in total) and has re-edited everything into chronological scene order. Meaning, whatever year that scene took place, has been put into order that way, including flashbacks and time travel stuff (he says "anything that didn’t involve or show the 'Endgame Avengers' was moved to the year it took place"). It's not just about cutting it all together, it's playing it out linearly which might be fascinating to see.

Watch: Warwick Davis Drops By the Set of Disney+'s 'Willow' Series

Willow Series

"A huge part of this story is… how good Willow looks for his age." The best way to wrap all of the exciting #DisneyPlusDay coverage is with this amazing video they debuted to promote the new Willow series now in development. I LOVE Willow! The original Willow adventure was a staple for me growing up, I watched it all the time with my brother we always enjoyed it. There's also this superb article by John DeVore recently about how Willow was the great adventure movie he grew up with instead of the Lord of the Rings movies. Of course, Disney is now working on a new reboot of Willow - instead of a remake or a new movie, they're making a series for Disney+. Of course, the title is just Willow all over again. Maybe it will be good? During the presentation, they released a video of the original Willow - actor Warwick Davis - visiting the set and chatting with some of the actors. It's the best thing you will see all week - this will make you smile & laugh.

Is the Moon Not the Moon? 'Moonfall' Conspiracy Viral Site Launches


Calling all megastructurists! Lionsgate has launched a brand new viral website for the upcoming epic sci-fi disaster movie Moonfall, about the Moon crashing right into Earth. Yes, of course it's directed by Roland Emmerich, and so far it looks awesome. The movie's viral website is a conspiracy theory blog run by the (fictional) Dr. K.C. Houseman, a character in the movie played by actor John Bradley. The site deals with the (very real) conspiracy theory question: is the Moon actually a "megastructure"? Is it hollow? Is it an alien spacecraft? Or is it something else? The original plot synopsis for Moonfall ends with a hint that "our Moon is not what we think it is." But what is it, then? The website is called MoonTruth.net and includes links and info, discussing various theories and scientific details about the Moon and what's really going on up there. Do you believe any of it? More viral websites for sci-fi movies, please! Let's bring them back again.

Watch: 2019 Blockbuster 'AMONtage' Hypes Up the Summer Season

Amontage Summer 2019

"13 films. 3 minutes. Watch the Summer 2019 Blockbuster AMONtage now!" We're just a few weeks away from officially kicking off the 2019 summer movie season, which is launching with Marvel's Avengers: Endgame opening in theaters worldwide. To celebrate the occasion, movie lover Amon Warmann has put together his annual preview video called the "Summer 2019 Blockbuster Montage", or "AMONtage". Featuring footage from 13 big summer blockbusters, this plays the perfect sizzle reel that will hopefully get you excited about what's going to be playing on the big screen over these next few months. As usual, this is an awesome preview with some very slick, impressive editing that makes this stand out over other mashups. After Avengers, I'm most looking forward to Godzilla, John Wick: Chapter 3, and honestly Hobbs & Shaw because the new trailer is totally bonkers. But the rest of these movies do look quite promising (as do many other movies he didn't include in this edit). Pull out all your summer clothes and enjoy the 2019 AMONtage!

One Final Bloody Red Band Trailer for Neil Marshall's 'Hellboy' Movie

Hellboy Red Band Trailer

"My job is: protect the world from boogie monsters!" With the movie opening in theaters later this week, Lionsgate has launched one final red band trailer for the new Hellboy movie, directed by Neil Marshall (of Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday, Centurion). This fresh reboot of the live-action Hellboy series re-casts the main role, with David Harbour playing the big red guy with horns and a stone arm. This final trailer really plays up the hard-R rating, with excessive violence and gore and language throughout. But is the movie any good? You'll have to see it this weekend and find out. The full cast includes Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim, Sasha Lane, Thomas Haden Church, Penelope Mitchell, Sophie Okonedo, Brian Gleeson, and Kristina Klebe. Who's planning to go? Anyone? Likely Hellboy fans only.

Another Beautiful Extended TV Spot for 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters'

Godzilla: King of the Monsters TV Spot

"This is Godzilla's world - we just live in it." One of our most anticipated movies of the summer! Warner Bros has debuted a new extended (60 sec) TV spot for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, to compliment the first two trailers released so far. This sequel to Gareth Edwards's Godzilla reboot from 2014 is directed by Mike Dougherty (Trick 'r Treat, Krampus), and it's looking even more epic as Godzilla will battle other recently unearthed massive monsters, including Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three headed King Ghidorah. Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Millie Bobby Brown (from "Stranger Things") plus Bradley Whitford, Vera Farmiga, Sally Hawkins, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Kyle Chandler, Thomas Middleditch, Zhang Ziyi, Charles Dance, with Ken Watanabe. This is going to be such an AWESOME movie, all the footage looks so beautiful and so thrilling. Really cannot wait to see it - only a few months left.

Watch: Alex Honnold from 'Free Solo' Analyzes Climbing in the Movies

Alex Honnold Climbing Movies

"It seems like a bit of a stretch…" Well, now. This is a rare example of an Oscar campaign actually resulting in something remarkably interesting that will last beyond just the awards season. GQ profiled rock climber Alex Honnold, the subject of the Oscar-nominated (and incredibly tense) documentary Free Solo (watch the trailer). As part of their coverage, they asked Honnold to analyze and break down various iconic rock climbing scenes from Hollywood movies. You know where this is going - it's all so fake and exaggerated. Of course! But nothing everything. Honnold critiques scenes in movies like Point Break, Star Trek V, Failure to Launch, The Dark Knight Rises, Vertical Limit, and Cliffhanger. That last one is known as the epitome of Hollywood fakeness ever since it debuted in 1993, but it's still a fun movie. All these movies are fun anyway.
