His last movie “Interstellar” was subjected to especially high scrutiny when audiences searched for not just plot holes but also scientific inaccuracies and environmental soundness. So just how accurate is “Dunkirk,” Nolan’s first movie based on actual events in World War II? The characters Nolan follows are all fictional, but the bleak reality it paints isn’t. How many people were actually evacuated from Dunkirk? The first thing to know is that Dunkirk is. »

6 hours ago

Tom Hardy, star of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and Logan Marshall-Green actor “Spider-Man: Homecoming” can be really, really hard to tell apart. They were both born in the mid-’70s — Tom Hardy in London and Logan Marshall-Green in South Carolina (with a twin brother!).

Round 1: Scraggly bearded villain Logan Marshall-Green in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (2017) / Tom Hardy in “The Revenant (2015). Round 2: Blockbuster sci-fi hero.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer: Loki and Thor Team Up (Video)

16 hours ago

With the film hitting theaters in three months, it was inevitable that Marvel would have a new trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok” to drop during its big Hall H panel at Comic-Con 2017. And so they did, with clips that featured Thor teaming up with Hulk, Valkyrie and, yes, his trickster brother Loki, to save Asgard. In past films, Thor and Loki have both been bitter enemies (see “The Avengers”) and reluctant allies (see “Thor: The Dark World”). This time around, they’re back to working together. But with Loki missing his staff and Thor missing his hammer, the two brothers take. »

Patton Oswalt Tapped to Replace Bobby Moynihan as Lead Voice on SyFy’s ‘Happy!’

19 hours ago

Patton Oswalt is set to replace “Saturday Night Live” veteran Bobby Moynihan as the lead voice in SyFy’s new series “Happy!,” coming out later this year. Oswalt will lend his pipes to the title character, a blue flying horse that is a positive influence on Nick Sax, played by Christopher Meloni. Sax is a grizzled ex-cop (sound familiar?) that’s now a boozing hitman in need of direction. They’ll work together in a classic odd-couple match-up to save an abducted young girl named Hailey. Moynihan had originally been cast as Happy and had voiced the character in the show’s pilot. »

Pokemon Go Fest Derailed by Abysmal Cell Service and Server Issues in Chicago

19 hours ago

“Pokemon Go” was the gaming sensation of Summer 2016 but it’s still popular enough to host an entire festival around it, aptly titled Pokemon Go Fest. Unfortunately, it’s not going quite as planned. The gathering was the first live event sponsored by the game’s developer, Niantic, but instead of finding special rewards and new levels, the thousands of Pokemon Go Fest attendees have been throttled by poor cell service and server issues in Chicago’s Grant Park. And they were not happy about it, mercilessly booing Niantic CEO John Hanke when he came to the stage on Saturday. »

Appropriately for the Netflix series’ upcoming Halloween return, the trailer for “Stranger Things” season 2 is rooted on one fundamental principle: Michael Jackson’s music is awesome, and “Thriller” is the perfect song for anything Halloween-related, period.

‘Flashpoint’ Offers Perfect Way to Replace Ben Affleck as Batman, If It’s Ever Needed (Commentary)

21 hours ago

Ben Affleck really, truly loves playing Batman — a point the star took great pains to make on Saturday during Warner Bros.’ Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con. His repeated, enthusiastic gushing about the role was surely intended to refute published reports from earlier this week that he and Warner Bros. are looking for a way to let him exit the role “gracefully.” It’s still unknown how much truth there was to those reports; suffice to say it would present a huge problem if Affleck does end up leaving the live-action DC universe. But with the reveal during the same panel. »
