Filed under: TV NewsComic BooksNetflixKrysten Ritter

Jessica Jones, meet Matthew Murdoch. Luke Cage, meet Danny Rand's Iron First.

The first full trailer for Marvel's The Defenders has arrived — and it packs quite a few literal punches, sassy one-liners, and gritty meet-cutes between our favorite Netflix heroes!

The action-packed clip blends all of New York's hidden heroes together for the first time. When Luke Cage's Misty Knight (Simone Missick) calls Jones (Krysten Ritter) in for questioning, she's surprised with a Daredevil of an attorney (Charlie Cox).

On the other side of town, Cage (Mike Colter) runs into Danny Rand (Finn Jones) as they both chase down a bad guy — and a hero-on-hero beat down ensues before they realize they're on the same team.

The trailer also confirms the resurrection of Elektra (you can see her in the back of the hallway fight scene!) and features the debut of Sigourney Weaver as the all-knowing villain Alexandra, who shows up to share vague, sinister words threatening the newfound assemblage.

Sigourney Weaver Wasn't Supposed To Survive The First Alien! (And Other Alternate Endings That Will Rip Your Head Off!)

Filed under: Film FlickersNostalgiaGirl Power

no title

The ending of the first Alien is one of the most iconic in cinema. Ripley, already undressed for cryosleep, is forced to face off against the xenomorph one last time, using only her wits to knock the apex predator out of her escape shuttle.

It gave us one of the most badass women ever seen on film and turned Sigourney Weaver into a bona fide movie star.

But in a new EW interview promoting the May 19 release of Alien: Covenant, director Ridley Scott confirms a rumor that he wanted to kill off Ripley! He explains:

"I thought that the alien should come in, and Ripley harpoons it and it makes no difference, so it slams through her mask and rips her head off."

That would have been a travesty; but what he wanted to happen next would have just been RIDICULOUS.

He wanted to end the movie with the ALIEN pressing buttons and then saying, mimicking the captain from earlier, "I'm signing off." WTF??

Luckily, this was a case where studio execs SAVED the film, threatening to fire Scott if he didn't come to his senses.

If you thought THAT ending would have changed everything, just check out some of these other amazingly different alternatives…

Filed under: Film FlickersOscars

no title

Pandora wasn't built in a day.

Which is likely why renovation on James Cameron's fictional planet will be taking MUCH longer than originally planned.

The Oscar-winning director revealed that the sequel to his sci-fi epic has been delayed a THIRD time, and will no longer be released Christmas 2018.

The second installment in the five-film franchise was originally scheduled to hit theaters in December 2014, with the next three films slated for Christmas releases in 2020, 2022, and 2023.

While he didn't divulge any details about the final three films, Cameron confirmed a 2018 release for Avatar 2 was "not happening."

When asked by The Toronto Star about what he could dish on the film's development, the filmmaker said:

9 Actresses Who Landed Big Movie Roles Originally Written For Men!

no title

They ain't here to play no love interest!

It's no secret that men get the lion's share of meaty roles in Hollywood, but the good old gender swap was a studio solution long before the Ghostbusters reboot came along!

Sigourney Weaver's unforgettable portrayal of Ellen Ripley in Alien is widely considered one of the best film heroes of all time, but the badass heroine was originally written as the standard male action hero before director Ridley Scott decided to switch the gender to enhance the story!

Of course, Ripley isn't the only character to get the gender flip in the development stage.

Believe it or not, Angelina Jolie's super-spy role in Salt was originally supposed to be played by Tom Cruise, and Sandra Bullock's political strategist in Our Brand is Crisis was taken from George Clooney's hands!

Find out what other famous actresses landed starring roles originally written for men (below)!

Michelle Rodriguez Is A Woman For The First Time On The Set Of Her Sex Change Thriller Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale — See The Gruesome Pic!

no title

Michelle Rodriguez's upcoming film is definitely NOT for the squeamish!

At least that's what we got from the first look at the Furious 7 star on set of her new gender reassignment thriller Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale.

This weekend, the 37-year-old was spotted in Vancouver filming a scene where she stumbled out of a motel onto the streets, wearing nothing but a blood soaked robe.

In the harrowing scene, Rodriguez's hitman character steps out for the first time as a female after being double crossed by gangsters and a rogue surgeon played by Sigourney Weaver.

The assassin then begins a cold-blooded revenge mission with the help of a nurse called Johnnie — who has secrets of her own!

Yeah… For now, we're going to have to say hard pass.

The forced gender reassignment plot is giving us a transphobic vibe, and even GLAAD is 'disappointed' with what they've heard.

What do YOU think??

Michelle Rodriguez Is Playing A Hitman Who Gets Gender-Reassignment Surgery In A Controversial New Thriller!

no title

This sounds like quite an interesting premise for a thriller.

Michelle Rodriguez may be known for her action movies like The Fast and The Furious franchise, but her newest flick may just require the best acting of her career.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Lost actress had been cast as the male lead in the upcoming thriller Tomboy.

Wait, wha??

Video: Michelle & Demi Lovato Kick Ass In Her Confident Video

We don't know many of the details yet, but apparently, Michelle will play a hitman who gets forced to undergo gender reassignment surgery from a corrupt doctor (Sigourney Weaver), and has to subsequently navigate life in her new body as a hitwoman — and obviously take bloody revenge on the people who wronged her.

There's some clear potential for controversy with the topic, but Michelle doesn't seem like the kind of person to attach herself to a transphobic piece, so we're hoping the movie works as a step forward for the transgender community.

Does this sound like your kind of movie??
