Current Superman and Man of Steel star Henry Cavill was officially cast in the role in January of 2011. But, seven years earlier Cavill was also cast as Kal-El in a different Superman project. That film, which was written by J.J. Abrams and would've been directed by McG, was eventually canceled and Cavill never shot a frame of Superman. Until many years later when he was called back for a new Superman reboot and given the job. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which follows the last son of Krypton in Man of Steel!
Warner Bros. has planned one of the most ambitious trailer launches in history for their upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On Monday, April 20, fans can attend a special event at IMAX theaters around the country where the new Batman v Superman trailer will debut after a special introduction from director Zack Snyder. They spent this week teasing that big unveiling with previews of the preview on Snyder’s Twitter feed. This was a carefully orchestrated media event.
Chris Evans has the distinction of playing two very different characters in the Marvel universe. He was both The Human Torch in Fantastic Four and its sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer, and now plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But he's not the only actor to double up Marvel roles. Ray Stevenson starred as The Punisher in Punisher: War Zone and later would play Volstagg in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes dark with The Punisher!
If The Avengers feel like one big, slightly dysfunctional family, it's because they are. And that applies to off-screen as well as on. Playing off that chemistry, the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron — Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner — appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and played a rousing game of Family Feud.
There’s a running joke in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that Indy took his nickname from the family dog. That joke has some truth to it though because as George Lucas was developing Raiders of the Lost Ark, he actually named the character after his dog, Jones (the “Indiana” was a riff on Steve McQueen character Nevada Smith). Coincidentally, the same dog was the inspiration for Chewbacca in Star Wars. Need more Raiders of the Lost Ark facts? Throw us the idol and we’ll throw you the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
If you're a big Fight Club fan (and, if so, who can blame you), you might have seen a lot of the subliminal messages cut throughout the film like the many split-second Tyler Durden appearances or the occasional flashes of, ahem, the male anatomy. But, here's something you may have missed: director David Fincher says there is a Starbucks coffee cup hidden in every scene of the movie.
Alien is now widely considered to be one of the best sci-fi/horror films ever made, but originally Fox didn't want to make it. In fact, it was only the success of another one of the biggest sci-fi films of all-time — Star Wars — that convinced the studio to give director Ridley Scott the greenlight. So, without Chewbacca, there would be no xenomorphs. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Alien!
Insidious director James Wan has moved on to the Fast and Furious franchise, but that doesn't mean the Insidious films are dead. Instead, Wan's creative partner and Saw co-creator Leigh Whannell has stepped up to continue the series with Insidious Chapter 3, which serves as a prequel to the original two films. But is it still scary?
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 just hit DVD last week, but we've already got a new trailer and poster for Mockingjay — Part 2, which opens in theaters this November. But, if you're expecting to see a lot of Jennifer Lawrence, you're going to be disappointed.
If you thought the movie version of Poltergeist was creepy, that's nothing compared to how it was on set. During the film's finale, the production used actual human skeletons instead of props because it was cheaper to buy the real ones. And they wonder why this movie is cursed? This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Poltergeist! All are welcome to watch!
