By Michael Hein - November 18, 2019 11:37 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 The new SpongeBob Movie features a bizarre cameo by Keanu Reeves, and fans cannot get enough. As the trailer got around on social media this week, many focused in on Reeves unique appearance. The cameo has clearly hooked adults for the new animated feature. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run features SpongeBob SquarePants and his world in an all new style of animation, with 3D models replacing the usual cartoon. However, there is a mix of live-action footage in there too, as Keanu Reeves' real-life head appears inside of a tumbleweed on the bottom of the ocean. In one of the strangest clips of the trailer, SpongeBob and Patrick speak with a luminescent tumbleweed, with Reeves head inside. The actor appears perfectly dry, and you can even see a necklace and a shirt collar where his face fades out into the animation. Keanu Reeves is in the newest SpongeBob movie as a Tumbleweed, I'm not joking … [Read more...] about ‘Spongebob Movie’ Finds Keanu Reeves as a Sage Tumbleweed, and Social Media Loves It

BossLogic has created an epic poster for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. The meta movie will feature Nicolas Cage starring as himself. Cage has not starred in a project from a major studio since 2011's Ghost Rider, so this is a pretty big deal for himself and Lionsgate, who won the bidding war to produce the movie. The story is pretty crazy, but ultimately, it's a tribute to Cage, says co-writer and director Tom Gormican. Cage is said to be pretty excited to tackle the role. Nicolas Cage has been cast as Nicolas Cage in a true story about the mind of Nicolas Cage called 'The Cage'pic.twitter.com/3qBI32JEHB— BossLogic (@Bosslogic) November 17, 2019 The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a meta movie and features Nicolas Cage as a struggling actor who desperately wants a part in a Quentin Tarantino project.

Freddy Krueger is one of Halloween's most celebrated horror movie killers. A Nightmare on Elm Street, from the brilliant mind of the late fright master Wes Craven, is a stone cold classic. While the many sequels are a mixed bag, there's no disputing the greatness of A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, or the bold adventurousness of Wes Craven's New Nightmare, which reimagined the entire franchise in a fascinating new way, years before "meta" became a trendy buzz word.Jack Sholder put Freddy Krueger inside another dude, Renny Harlin put him in sunglasses, and Rachel Talalay nearly finished him off in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare. Though he once hosted his own TV show and finally faced off with the killer of the Friday the 13th franchise in Freddy vs. Jason, there are still multiple Freddy Krueger projects that were in some stage of development that simply never got made. Today, we're looking at some of those project.A Nightmare on Elm Street: First KillsWe got a taste of … [Read more...] about 10 Freddy Krueger Movies They Never Made
In news that has shocked and surprised some horror fans, the first Hellraiser movie in five years is about to start shooting this month. And it will star an iconic genre actress. But perhaps most disappointing is that Doug Bradley will not be reprising his legendary role as infamous Cenobite Pinhead. This new Hellraiser is not the long rumored remake, and Clive Barker is not involved on any level. The script comes from make-up artist Gary J. Tunnicliffe, who will also be directing. This latest sequel follows 2011's Hellraiser: Revelations, which Doug Bradley also refused to participate in. It was A Nightmare on Elm Street actress Heather Langenkamp that broke the initial news to horror website ScareTissue.com. From out of nowhere, she dropped the bombshell that she will have a cameo. "I actually have an opportunity to play a small part in Hellraiser, the new Hellraiser. I'm so excited about it. I go next week to do the shooting. The script is amazing and that I got the part is … [Read more...] about New Hellraiser Movie Starts Shooting; Original Elm Street Actress Lands Role
In the current Star Wars canon, Thrown is alive at the time of A New Hope, as it has been confirmed that he survived the events seen in Rogue One. Star Wars Rebels is currently airing its final season and is ramping up to what should be a very exciting conclusion, which ties into the first Star Wars story. The show has done a lot of good over its run, but bringing Grand Admiral Thrawn into the new Star Wars canon may be the single best thing the series has accomplished. But is the fan-favorite villain ever going to make it to the big screen? We can't say for sure, but we do know that Thrawn is going to survive the events of Star Wars Rebels season 4. Back in August, when Star Wars Rebels season 3 arrived on Blu-ray, Dave Filoni was interviewed and talked in-depth about the third season of the animated series. Buried in that interview was a very telling bit of information. According to Filoni, who is usually pretty hush, hush about this kind of stuff, Thrawn is indeed going to make it … [Read more...] about Thrawn Survived Rogue One, Will He Get His Own Star Wars Movie?
