Wayne Exclusive Clip Gets Bloody

Wayne Exclusive Clip Gets Bloody

Series creator Shawn Simmons (School of Rock), along with Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are bringing a gritty new dark comedy to YouTube Premium on January 16, titled Wayne. According to YouTube, “When the titular teenage renegade’s 1978 Pontiac Trans Am is stolen from his father on his deathbed, ‘Wayne’ sets out with nothing but a dirt bike and his new crush Del to take back his rightful inheritance.” For a closer look at Del wrecking havoc at a high school blood drive, check out our exclusive clip below: Mark McKenna, who is best known for his performance in the Golden Globe-nominated Irish film, Sing Street, will star alongside Ciara Bravo, who plays Del. The streaming provider calls Wayne a “16-year-old Dirty Harry with a heart of gold,” but the series also resembles Netflix’s End of the F***ing World, which IGN calls a Bonnie and Clyde for a new generation in our review.

Top 10 Box Office Hits of 2018

Top 10 Box Office Hits of 2018

It was a feast or famine year at the box office in 2018, with several records being broken at the same time as several high-profile movies managed to severely under-perform. While 2018 was the first year in history to have three movies gross more than $600 million at the domestic box office, the bottom half of the domestic top 10 is currently separated by just $11.5 million. There is still a chance, sure, that some of this year’s late-December hits could sneak into the top 10 by the end of their run, like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Aquaman and Mary Poppins Returns, but even while the bottom half could fluctuate, the top half is likely set in stone. For this piece, we’ll be focusing on the domestic top 10 in 2018, not the worldwide charts, which almost seems moot anyway since most of the domestic top 10 is represented on the worldwide top 10 anyway, with the exception of two movies which I’ll point out later.

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Trolls Critics of Character’s Look

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Trolls Critics of Character’s Look

After the first official poster of the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie circulated last week, fans have been voicing their opinions about his legs in the image, saying they look too human-like in comparison to the original games. The official Twitter account for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has now tweeted a photoshopped image in response to the fan jokes, with Sonic having overly-muscular legs, holding up a sign that says, “Can’t a guy workout? Be back next year.” This shouldn’t get any attention on the internet, right? #RespectTheLegs#SonicMoviepic.twitter.com/Gqz9wSvYhD Continue reading…
