It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.

As much as I don’t care for post-conversion 3D or IMAX in general, I will definitely be seeing The Wizard of Oz when it’s re-released September 20th. Of course I’d go and see it just as quickly if it were being showed in it’s original format but after watching this video showing the process of how it’s all done, I’m looking forward to seeing the results.

In some ways, it seems unnecessary to explain The Gamers movies beyond the way they were introduced to me: if you roleplay, you will like them. I mean, I could tell you that they’re a series made by gamers, for gamers. I could tell you that they’re some of the few movies about nerds that laugh with us, not at us. I could tell you that they’re about as indie as it gets, and that what they lack in budget, they make up for in heart. But really, the ideal way to get into them is to have a friend sit you down on their couch and say, “trust me, I think you’ll like this,” and let the movie speak for itself.
However, the filmmakers invited us to critique the newly-released The Gamers: Hands of Fate, which has two key differences from its predecessors. Firstly, Hands of Fate leaves character sheets behind, and ventures into the realm of collectible card games. It also hopes to spark continued conversation about sexism in gamer culture.
Quest accepted. Minor spoilers ahead.READ MORE

This summer was a weird one. It felt, in a way, like were were still coming down from the high of The Avengers, the movie that ruled our hearts, minds, and wallets a single summer ago. On hand to catch us as we fell were some good movies, some bad movies, some movies that we weren’t angry at, just disappointed, and one shining example of Oh please God, no, why did this movie happen?!
We’re taking a fond (or, in some cases, not-so-fond) look back at the summer of 2013′s giant monsters, giant robots, giant stuffed rabbits, and the giant pile of wrongness that was a whole lot o’ whitewashing. Whew. With the summer over, let’s get ready for the end-of-year releases. More Hunger Games, Thor, and The Hobbit are right around the corner.READ MORE

“That’s the ultimate superhero for a woman. No matter what, no matter who ends up being Wonder Woman someday, I just hope it’s something that is done correctly. I know it’s there and that it could definitely be done correctly. It’s just a matter of getting the right people and having the right vision come together. A director and producer and writer have to see the beauty in it and make it real.” Actress and mixed martial artist Gina Carano on the need for a Wonder Woman film.
Carano, who herself would fit the role quite well in many fans minds, weighed in on the discussion as to whether Diana should take to the big screen in an interview with ComingSoon.net. Carano has previously appeared in Fast & Furious 6 and Steven Soderbergh‘s Haywire. She can soon be seen in In the Blood, a thriller where she plays a woman who must rescue her husband after he disappears during their honeymoon.READ MORE

Hayao Miyazaki‘s The Wind Rises has been described as a more grown up Studio Ghibli tale, focusing on Jiro Horikoshi, an airplane designer in the first half of the 20th century. Those of us unfortunate enough to not understand Japanese, however, have had to wait to see the full impact of the predictably gorgeous footage from the new film, until now. The Wind Rises will be shown at the Venice Film Festival, and soon after at the Toronto International Film Festival, prompting the release of this english-subtitled version of the trailer to give us a good idea of what we’re looking forward to.READ MORE

Ok, I stole that title from Nostalgia Chick (Lindsay Ellis) but only because it worked so well. I recently put together a quick list on my tumblr of male-led vs. female-led superhero film adaptations but Ellis takes a deeper look at the actual quality of those superheroine (or antiheroine as the case may be) films. I will defend 1984′s Supergirl to my dying day but give a watch and see what she has to say about the some of the few female comic book films in existence.READ MORE

You remember Sophia Grace, right? She became a viral star after singing Nicki Minaj‘s “Superbass” with Rosie, her likewise pink-tutu’d compadre.
Now she’s breaking out of the viral star scene and signing on to do some serious film work: she’s going to be in the new Into the Woods movie.
So who is she playing? Why is Johnny Depp in this banner? What will become of the little British girl in this famously dark musical? Head under the cut to find out.READ MORE

We’re not quite sure why Geena Davis is holding a bow and arrow (Edit: You learn something every day!), but regardless of the context she looks pretty awesome from this picture–that uniform she’s wearing is her old costume from the 1992 classic A League Of Their Own! She looks just as good as she did when she was on the Rockford Peaches. If only we could swap out that archery equipment for some baseball gear…
