Sunday Selfie Siesta

Welcome to the Fiesta! Late again, yes I know.

And it's actually out of my control this time, as we had some nasty thunderstorms come through the area on Friday and Saturday, and when the power wasn't knocked out, the Internet was. So thank Mother Nature or AT&T for the delays.

Here are some Sunday Selfies as my apology to you.





Last week I asked if you liked the new look of The Thing in the new Fantastic Four movie, and you answered MEHntastic Four.



  • Box Office News: I mean, given the choices of what's in theaters now, why would you NOT be seeing Furious 7 at this point?
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more!
  • In Theaters This Week: Child 44, Monkey Kingdom, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, and Unfriended
  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Cake and Taken 3

  • Wonder Woman loses its director because of reasons. So they went out and got a new one
  • The production crew for John Wick had to spend $5000 to create CGI dog poop
  • Josh Hartnett has some big regrets
  • If Stella can get her groove back, so can Vin Diesel
  • More communication problems for Sony?
  • Steven Spielberg will soon be directing his first Disney film
  • Matthew Vaughn could be directing the Flash Gordon reboot
  • Blame Alan Rickman if you hate when changes are made to terrible scripts
  • In casting news, Olivia Munn is an X-Man, and The Gos could be coming to the world of Blade Runner

    And that brings us to this week's poll.


    WHich new trailer this week was better?
    Star Wars
    Batman vs Superman
    Terminator

    Welcome to the Fiesta!

    Yes, I COULD have written a column last week, but I was mentally tapped out after the difficulty of writing this year's WELPie Awards. Those three segments were challenging to write! April Fools? Here's what your face should have looked like last week when there was no Fiesta.


    Two weeks ago I asked you if you would ever attend South by Southwest, and you answered only to visit Jeditab. Daawwwwwwwwww.



  • Box Office News: Furious 7 speeds its way to the record books
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Scream Queens, Aloft, and more!
  • In Theaters This Week: The Longest Ride
  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: The Woman In Black 2: Angel of Death

  • RIP Geoffrey Lewis and James Best
  • Furious 7 is dominating the box office, but its sequel is nowhere near ready
  • Speaking of Furious 7, 75 percent of its audience has been non-white
  • Brad Bird reveals that he is writing a script for The Incredibles 2

  • "James Bond should not be black"
  • Here are nine movies that could have happened, but didn't
  • Attending Star Wars: Celebration? You'll get to see the new trailer for Episode VII before the rest of us


  • And that brings us to this week's poll.

    FXFF

    Welcome to the Fiesta!

    It's South by Southwest week here in Austin, meaning the streets are flooded with bros in XXXL tanktops, and chicks in muscle shirts and sports bras trying to get free beer and waiting in line for hours to try to get a whiff of a chair that Beyonce might have farted in in 2003.

    But enough about my personal life, here's Bizarro DX from some wrestling video that was released this week.


    Last week I asked you why a Cinderella movie was being released in 2015, and you answered who cares?



  • Box Office News: A remake takes the top spot in the era of remakes.
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Good Kill, Pixels, and more!
  • In Theaters This Week: The Divergent Series: Insurgent and The Gunman
  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and Into the Woods

  • Why are we getting Mallrats 2? To please Kevin Smith
  • It's the end of an era
  • It's also the end of another era
  • Coming soon to theaters: Fraggle Rock
  • Coming to Netflix in April: Leprechaun! Leaving Netflix in April: some really good stuff

    And that brings us to this week's poll.


    Will you ever attend South by Southwest?
    Yes
    No
    Only to visit Jeditab
    What is SXSW?

    And Today Is His Birthday

    Welcome to another edition of the Friday Film Fiesta, this time taking place on Friday the 13th! Again!


    I've been lazy the last few weeks and haven't asked you anything.

  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Hotel Transylvania 2, Adult Beginners, and more!
  • In Theaters This Week: Cinderella and Run All Night
  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Annie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, Penguins of Madagascar, and Vice

  • Our big news of the week is that the first Star Wars spinoff will be about Rogue Squadron, while Episode VIII will resume the franchise's traditional May release date
  • The above news is sending shockwaves through Hollywood, as a sequel for a film that has yet to be released has already been pushed back
  • One thing you will not be seeing in the new Star Wars movies: smoking
  • SEQUELMANIA: Frozen 2, Clerks III, Mallrats 2, Sharknado 3
  • Genndy Tartakovsky's Popeye will not be seeing the light of day
  • Liam Neeson is quitting action movies
  • The cast of Monty Python and the Holy Grail is reuniting for the movie's 40th anniversary
  • In boycotting Netflix movies, theaters are making themselves irrelevant
  • Also becoming irrelevant: Sony, for trying to turn Ghostbusters into a franchise
  • Christopher Nolan is stepping up his efforts to preserve film

    And that brings us to this week's poll.


    Why is there a live action Cinderella movie coming out in 2015?
    Because
    $$$$
    Who cares?

    Another Delayed Fiesta

    Welcome to the RETURN of the Fiesta!

    Unfortunately there was no column last week, as yours truly was asked to fly out to Hollywood to be a seat filler for the Oscars. As you can imagine, it ended with hilarious results!


    Two weeks ago, I asked... yeah let's never speak of that failed gimmick ever again.

  • Box Office News: Two weeks ago, movie seats were flooded with... nah, not gonna go there. Last weekend, an inspirational movie beats out a movie about "fat and ugly" teenagers and a movie about hot tubs!
  • In Theaters This Week: Focus and The Lazarus Effect
  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Foxcatcher and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

  • RIP Leonard Nimoy
  • For those who missed the show like me, here are the results of the Oscars. We also have results of this year's Razzies.
  • Sequelmania is running wild this week, as news has come out that Harrison Ford will be returning for a sequel to Blade Runner. Another franchise getting a sequel will be Alien, and rumor is that this sequel will cancel out some of the crappier sequels from the franchise. We are also apparently getting (or might have already gotten) a sequel to MacGruber
  • Coming soon to theaters: Adventure Time
  • Also coming soon: A movie where Leo plays every character
  • Neill Blomkamp wants to "re-do" Elysium
  • One movie avoiding Sequelmania is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
  • Here is a list of what is both coming to and leaving Netflix in March
  • Not to be outdone by Disney and Star Wars, a theme park based on Lord of the Rings will soon be a reality
  • Movie theaters are still screwing up

    No poll this week as I have been turned on to House of Cards, and my TV has decided it would rather distort sound, so I'm off to fix that. See you next Friday! Or Saturday. Or Sunday. Or...

    Super Fiesta Sunday

    Welcome to the Fiesta... posted on a Friday for the first time in weeks? To be honest though, I was getting pretty used to Saturday Siestas, even if they did seem a bit second rate.

    Speaking of second rate, a hilarious meme came about from a picture of Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson raising Roman Reigns' arm at the Royal Rumble. You probably missed it, so I've decided to post some of the better movie related ones.




    I haven't asked you anything in two weeks.



  • Box Office News: Sniper continues to set record, and we have our second bomb of the year
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Ted 2, Fantastic Four, and more!

  • Rebootamania is in the headlines again this week, with the cast of the all-female Ghostbusters being announced. There are also rumors that Disney wants to reboot the Indiana Jones franchise with Chris Pratt
  • The Sony hack might get female actresses a pay raise
  • Suge Knight reportedly killed a man on set yesterday
  • Release Date News! We have planned release dates for Star Wars episodes 8 and 9, and MI:5 has been bumped up to July 31, 2015
  • Is the UK a bad place for minority actors?
  • Emily Blunt passed on multiple Marvel roles
  • M. Night Shyamalan wants a sequel to Unbreakable
  • Netflix's big secret is much more shocking (and disappointing) than you think
  • A movie once thought lost forever will soon have its debut
  • Why does every movie look orange and blue?
  • You can expect to see trailers for these movies if you watch the Super Bowl

    And that brings us to this week's poll.


    Are you happy with the female Ghostbusters cast?
    Yes
    No
    Meh
