Nation Reacts To Horrifying Real Life Lickitung in New “Detective Pikachu” Trailer

But I digress. Let us move on to the next freakish design that is in our rolodex, as the newest Poke'mon: Detective Pikachu teaser gave us a new disgusting animal to gawk at: Lickitung. For those not in the now, Lickitung is a disgusting freak who is known for his extremely long tongue that paralyzes people when he uses it on his foes. He's a repulsive animal - half blob fish, half the embodiment of bad boundaries. Also, he's a normal type, so he's not even good in battle, so screw that. But double screw to the new terrifying design of Lickitung in the CGI nightmare that I will pay money to see on opening night, Detective Pikachu. Look at this thing! My goodness!

Everyone Horrified By New Will Smith Genie

Folks. Look. The Aladdin trailer for the live action remake looks bad. It looks really, really bad. The costumes seem somehow overwrought, the Jafar the game is presenting is much, much too hunky and, compared to the scenery chewing villain in the original animated movie, kind of seems like he's going to be dull as dirt. Yet, we knew the worst was yet to come, and here it is. Folks, they revealed the new blue genie in the remake, as played by Will Smith. And folks. Absolutely no one is warming up to this abhorrent freak of all nature. Check out some of the reactions below.

VIDEO: Here’s The Teaser For Tommy Wiseau’s New Movie, “Big Shark”

Look. I don't know when underground movies turned into a celebration of weird ass sensibilities, to gently chuckling at weird ass sensibilities, but the weird ass sensibilities are here, and no underground movie has dominated the last fifteen years more than Tommy Wiseau's "The Room". "The Room" had it all, trash dialogue, the director's trash instincts on display, and best of all, the audience got to laugh and feel smarter than somebody, as was all the rage back then. Well, now Tommy Wiseau is back. We'll see if an iota of self awareness has changed him, or we'll find out wether or not audiences actually want a follow up to a movie they loved because it was bad. In any case, I'm just going to say "Oh hi Mark", as is customary when writing about Tommy Wiseau and go into the explanation of "Big Shark", which Wiseau introduced during a screening of "The Room" during a Q&A at the Charles Theater in London.

X-Men OFFICIALLY Headed To Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, Wolverine to Be Recast

I guess this is how you hide a massive merger with insane layoffs, you go "Hey! What if Cyclops met Rocket Raccoon! You kids would love that, right!?" And indeed, you would, because the X-Men are headed to the Cinematic Marvel Universe, under the vision of current MCU super producer Kevin Feige. Kevin Feige, as many know, got his Marvel producer start with the original X-Men franchise at the turn of the millennium before transitioning to the Disney owned MCU. Now, due to a deal with Fox that is no doubt a result of the merger, and similar to the one with Sony that brought Spider-Man to the cinematic universe, where Sony shares the rights and gets to do some of its own thing, the X-Men will indeed be transitioning to the MCU, with a new Wolverine in tow.

VIDEO: Toy Story 4 Trailer Drops After Super Bowl, Features Bo Peep, Key, Peele

Sure, it was a historically low rated and dull Super Bowl, and sure, most of the ads seemed like dumb fluff from advertisers who grow more and more bored with the world around them in a risk averse culture, or robots being tortured, or depression done ironically or both. But one thing all Americans can agree is good wholesome fun: the new Toy Story 4 ad, folks! It was thirty seconds long but gave us a lot of good clues about where this new franchise will go, from Bo Peep's new kickass return, to Key and Peele's return as a stuffed duck and rabbit on the carnival grounds.

The First Trailer For “Fast and the Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw” Is Extremely Insane

It's shocking to think that Hobbes and Shaw, the Fast and the Furious spin-off starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham, is more than just an impetus for Vin Diesel to continue to be mad at The Rock for petty as hell reasons. No, it's also a movie, and the movie, judging from the trailer is INSANE. In a franchise known mainly for neon car chases through crazed alleys, we now get Idris Elba as a dangerous mutant who looks dressed like an 80's Marvel character? Yes, absolutely sign me up and then some, let's go, I don't have all day!

Well folks, the Oscar nominations are in, and you can't say that the Academy doesn't have taste -- then again, Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody are on there, the latter directed by someone who really shouldn't get rewarded in light of the #MeToo movement, but we've written about that before here.

Outrage After Accused Offender Bryan Singer’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” Wins Best Drama At Golden Globes

Who knows what the Golden Globes were thinking. In my opinion Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk, Blackkklansman and A Star is Born were all much better movies than the tepid "Bohemian Rhapsody". But even quality of cinema aside, it feels questionable that one year after a very memorable, a very honest ceremony celebrating "Time's Up" in the wake of the #MeToo movement, the award for one of the Best Movies went to a man who has been accused multiple times of raping underage teens.

Heck yeah, Idris Elba talks like a stereotypical teen! Heck yeah! Check out the selfie below!

Man, how can the president have more time to watch movies than I do?

In any case, the president still does his job of elevating culture a little bit with a fantastic and comprehensive Top Ten list. Sure, Bo Burnham may have been shut out of a director's Golden Globe for his phenomenal movie "Eighth Grade", but he can hold his head above water knowing that when the president saw the dad in that movie nervously being unsure about how to talk to his daughter, but trying damn it, he probably said, and I quote "I...uh... relate!"

VIDEO: David K. Harbour as Hellboy is Here in New Trailer

Imagine having to do a reboot of a movie franchise that one of the greatest directors alive has already done so well. I mean, what could horror guy Neil Marshall do what Academy Award winner Guillermo Del Toro didn't? Those first two Hellboys are brilliant. Still, the trailer certainly promises something that won't be a disaster potentially, in a new adaptation of the beloved Mike Mignola comic book series. David K. Harbour replaces Ron Perlman, a robust Ian McShane replaces John Hurt as Hellboy's father figured turned employer Bruttenholm, and apparently Thomas Haden Church is in this as Lobster Johnson if IMDB is to be believed.

Still, the trailer certainly promises something that won't be a disaster potentially, in a new adaptation of the beloved Mike Mignola comic book series. David K. Harbour replaces Ron Perlman, a robust Ian McShane replaces John Hurt as Hellboy's father figured turned employer Bruttenholm, and apparently Thomas Haden Church is in this as Lobster Johnson if IMDB is to be believed.

Will Smith’s Genie Costume Not Looking Great

Uh oh! The live action Disney remakes have finally went too far. I say 'finally', as if a CGI Seth Rogen voiced Pumbaa wasn't too far, but at least was part of a cast people could get excited about. This on the other hand... this looks like a community theater play, right? Replacing the Robin Williams Genie seems absolutely impossible. Robin Williams was a comedian with a nigh infinite energy and inventiveness, and in Aladdin he was playing a creature who is the id of comedy personified. He was always going to be irreplaceable. But the first photo of Will Smith as the genie shows that Guy Ritchie is barely trying. Or his heart is in the wrong place. Or whatever. The entire thing looks shoddy and cheap and bad. Check out the photos, as released by Entertainment Weekly, below.

“Get Out” Auteur Jordan Peele Reveals Chilling Poster For Upcoming Nightmare: “Us”

No one knows exactly what "Us" is about. What we do know however is inviting and honestly enough: this is Jordan Peele's second directorial feature after he made the culture shock that is "Get Out". "Get Out" gave the wider populace a language to discuss issues of racial isolation that wasn't in the wide lexicon before. When Kanye was dismissing that he was changing into something much worse than himself during his long, drawn out and dedicated flirtation with the alt-right, he said he was not in the "sunken place", i.e., that place where Bradley Whitford's victims were sent to when they inhabited the bodies of their caucasian buyers. So whatever Jordan Peele brings about is loaded with a lot of promise, and without further ado, here is the poster of his next highly anticipated motion picture: "Us".

New Sonic the Hedgehog Poster Reimagines Sonic as Upsetting Freak

Sonic has went through a lot of iterations. There's been the child like Sonic the Hedgehog of the original Sega Genesis games. There's the more anime inspired hedgehog that we've seen in Dreamcast's Sonic Adventure. And now, the upcoming Ben Schwartz voiced Sonic the Hedgehog movie imagines Sonic as he was always apparently meant to look like: a bizarre muscular child. A muscular child with furry spikes whose muscle definition is much too more toned than the once noodle limbed video game hero could ever dream of.

Disney Unveils LIVE ACTION KIM POSSIBLE Trailer

Disney is remaking many of its animated properties into live action films. That's really not any news, that's honestly at this point a punchline. However, Dumbo, The Lion King, Aladdin-- they're all already good as is, aren't they? They're perfect movies, and making them into live action films kind of defeats the elements that made them these absolute spirals of magic to begin with, right? All except for one movie that's been kind of hiding under the surface-- the Disney Channel adaptation of that 2000's animated teenage spy hit -- Kim Possible!

Kevin Hart Steps Down From Oscars Following Homophobic Tweets, Insane Non Apology

Man oh man. I don't understand where so much of this toxic pride comes from, as this story includes a lot of disgusting, repulsive homophobia, the strangest non apology I've ever read and just a smattering of gross pride. But first some background. As we announced earlier, Kevin Hart was on Wednesday announced as the new host of the Academy Awards following a seemingly overlong and protracted search. For now everyone seemed-- well, okay with it. Kevin Hart doesn't seem like anyone's top choice, but there he was. But then, people discovered something -- Kevin Hart's Tweets from 2011 are monstrously homophobic! Repulsively homophobic, including joking about how disgusted he is with gay people, and how he would violently beat his son if his son if he came out of the closet.

Kevin Hart Set To Host The Oscars

Just as the Oscars hosting job was dubbed the “least wanted job in Hollywood,” the academy has announced that actor and comedian Kevin Hart will be taking on the role for the first time in 2019. The 91st ceremony is just three months away and the Hollywood Reporter released an article today describing in detail why no one wants the gig. The article stated that since 2004, “the Academy has struggled to find the right anchor, and nobody has been willing to run the gantlet more than twice.” The last two years were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and before him, Ellen DeGeneres, Hugh Jackman, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart all hosted the ceremony twice.

Marvel nerds! Your next delicious morsel of Marvel fandom is here! Gaze upon it with your all seeing eyes as the latest bit of goodness of that Kree Warrior Carol Danvers, more popularly known as Captain Marvel, is here!

Live Action Lion King Trailer Gets SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISON With Animated Version

Last night, as we were all digesting our incredible Thanksgiving meals, Disney surprised us with the trailer to its latest animated to live action (or in this case, CGI pretending to be live action) adaptation of The Lion King, only a few weeks after the revelation of the similar adaptation of Tim Burton's Dumbo. This Lion King trailer has been getting a lot of hype due to both Childish Gambino/Donald Glover and Beyoncé Carter-Knowles being in the movie as Simba and Nala, respectively, but now that the entire trailer is here, what do people think? Well, for one, they think the adaptation is shockingly loyal.

Lego Movie 2 Trailer is Shockingly Excellent, YouTube to Stream Lego Movie For Free

The Lego people have really eked themselves out a weird little franchise with the Lego Movie franchise. Not content with simply having a movie doing well leading to a sequel, in a post Marvel Hollywood where "the thing you like" has to have 10,000 sequels and spin offs and whatnot. It's weird to watch the "Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" trailer pop up in your feed and you quietly go, "didn't we see this already?", then you remember, no, that was Lego Batman and Ninjago or that fun airline video they did for Turkey. So if you specifically want to find out what happens to Emmet, the Chris Pratt voiced Lego man from the original Lego Movie, then folks, this movie is for you. But surprise -- the trailer is actually really great.

New Dumbo Trailer Will Pummel Your Feelings

The story of Dumbo, the very sad elephant who everyone was a massive piece of garbage to, but then he learned how to fly, is getting the live action treatment from Tim Burton. Now, I used to be so so on live action reboots, but ever since seeing the bananas Poke'mon Detective Pikachu trailer, with its hair adorned Jigglypuff, consider me all in.
