Netflix will be the only home of Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar movies soon

Netflix recently announced the upcoming shows and movies we can expect to see on the service soon, and casually amongst it all, almost as if were a minor note, was a simple statement: ”From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar.” And just like that, Netflix has become the most important streaming service for many.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer reveals villain Krang

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer reveals villain Krang

The last Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie wasn't exactly a big hit, but as we've seen in the past, that kind of thing doesn't stop Hollywood from green-lighting a sequel. Especially when Michael Bay is serving as the producer. Anyway, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is less a month away from hitting theaters, and a new trailer has been released. This time around, however, they've finally unveiled the series' iconic villain Krang.

Now Fruit Ninja is getting a movie adaptation too

Now Fruit Ninja is getting a movie adaptation too

As the latest sign that Hollywood has truly, completely run out of even half-decent ideas, here comes the news that the hit mobile game Fruit Ninja is getting a movie adaptation. That's right, that one game where you swipe your finger across your phone's display to cut up watermelon, pineapple, and other fruit is coming to the big screen. This comes after recent reports about classic, non-story based games Missile Command, Centipede, and even Tetris getting picked up for films, as well as, of course, the just released Angry Birds movie.

This is the ‘Ghostbusters’ baddie you haven’t seen yet

This is the ‘Ghostbusters’ baddie you haven’t seen yet

Trailers, trailers everywhere. While we've seen the two official trailers Sony released in the U.S., those in other countries have been given a better look at the movie. A new international trailer for the soon-to-premiere flick has made its way online, and it's pretty great. Yes, it has scenes we've already seen...as well as a considerable number we haven't, and they shed some light on the story. Oh, and there's a massive angry ghost.

Marvel Studios has cast its first big female supervillian: Cate Blanchett

Marvel Studios has cast its first big female supervillian: Cate Blanchett

Marvel Studios has announced that actress Cate Blanchett is on board to play ‘Hela,’ the studios’ first major female supervillian (as far as movies go, that is). She’ll be playing the character in Thor: Ragnarok, and will be joined by Jeff Goldblum who is playing “Grandmaster.” The announcement is a big deal for Marvel, as Blanchett will usher in the first instance of a Marvel movie featuring a woman as its primary villain.

Brace yourself: there’s a new ‘Ghostbusters’ trailer

Brace yourself: there’s a new ‘Ghostbusters’ trailer

The new Ghostbusters movie will be in theaters soon, and ahead of that premiere comes a new trailer. Don't worry -- it's not terrible, though it's getting a bunch of hate anyway. The dark and brooding music is gone, replaced with the nostalgic tune we all love (it seems Sony learned from that fan edit). A bunch of clips from the first trailer are present, but there's a lot of new material, too.

How we hunted Angry Birds in Hawaii: A SlashGear 360 Adventure

How we hunted Angry Birds in Hawaii: A SlashGear 360 Adventure

Several weeks ago I was invited by the folks behind the Angry Birds movie to fly to Hawaii to speak with the stars. Generally we try to steer towards science and science-fiction films when we do any sort of coverage for movies - we are SlashGear, after all - but this film is something special. Rovio - creators of the Angry Birds franchise - carved out a unique chapter in the history of the smartphone. Could they convince us that a movie needed to be made? Could Jason Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph, and Josh Gad convince us?

Angry Birds Movie actors realize Sean Penn is in the film

Angry Birds Movie actors realize Sean Penn is in the film

Speaking with three of the main actors in The Angry Birds Movie this past week, we happened upon a realization of sorts. This movie is packed with well-known actors of all sorts - most of whom have done both live-action acting and animation (voice) work as well. This is a film where an actor would be forgiven for forgetting the entire cast list of fellow actors - especially if they had no scenes with them in the same studio. In fact with so few lines in the film, it's not out of the question to assume that Sean Penn didn't spend nearly as much time in the recording booth as the rest of the cast. As such, it's easy to forget he was there at all.

Atari classics Missile Command and Centipede are going to be movies

Atari classics Missile Command and Centipede are going to be movies

Movie adaptations based on big-name, current generation video games, like Assassin's Creed, World of Warcraft, and Uncharted for example, are nice and all, but what the world really needs is to see the all-important classics brought to the big screen. I'm talking Atari's Missile Command and Centipede. Never mind the fact that neither of those titles have anything close to a story, if Hollywood can produce a quality film based on the board game Battleship, I have no doubt they can do the same here.

New Star Wars: TFA movie footage explores Maz’s Castle in brief

New Star Wars: TFA movie footage explores Maz’s Castle in brief

With a bit of support from the new "The Star Wars Show" and to give a boost to the "Jabba Flow" music track, Lucasfilm has released additional The Force Awakens footage. This is a clip that's basically pickups - or B-roll. Extra footage. Stuff they might have used to show more diversity in aliens in Maz Kanata's castle if the need would have arisen. As it is now, it's just a bit of extra video that's not available on the DVD. More, I tell you, more!

Assassin’s Creed debut movie trailer features secrecy and fighting

Assassin’s Creed debut movie trailer features secrecy and fighting

Movies adapted from video games have yet to earn a decent reputation, but the latest franchise to try is Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. The movie of the same name will be hitting theaters this fall on December 21st, at least giving Assassin's fans something as the game series takes a year off to focus on development. The first real trailer for the movie has just been released, revealing that star Michael Fassbender will be taking on the role of an assassin in a story that will be familiar to those who've played any of the games.
