It’s ‘Time’ To Talk About A Scene Cut From ‘Captain Marvel’ And Other Movie Secrets

Whether it’s Thanos demanding our silence or characters being edited out of movie trailers, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is full of secrets. Now the Flerken’s out of the bag. In a recent interview with HuffPost, “Captain Marvel” visual effects supervisor Chris Townsend took us behind the scenes to shed some light on the mysteries of how Marvel brought the ’90s era, Brie Larson-led superhero film to life. From the daunting task of de-aging Samuel L. Jackson to how Goose the alien cat/Flerken became so purrfect, Townsend told us the stories behind the stories of one of the MCU’s latest blockbusters. A “time lens” scene was cut. After Jackson made some comments earlier this year that Captain Marvel could time travel, it was theorized that this latest Marvel offering would reveal how the hero...

Samuel L. Jackson Issues Blistering Warning To People Staying Silent About Donald Trump

Samuel L. Jackson has sent a scathing message to people who aren’t speaking out against President Donald Trump. In a new interview with Esquire magazine, the “Captain Marvel” star said it was “not fucking okay” that “this motherfucker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy shit.” “And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit,” he added. Jackson has been a vocal critic of the president ― most recently firing back at his claim to be a champion of the black community, backing Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-Mich.) rallying cry to “impeach the motherfucker” and dumping on Trump’s idea to arm some school teachers. And Jackson, 70, told Esquire he’d still “tweet that shit out” even if he were a garbageman and not a movie legend with 4.5 million followers on Instagram and 7.8...

Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson Lie To Each Other In ‘Carpool Karaoke’

In James Corden’s preview Tuesday of “Carpool Karaoke: The Series,” the “Captain Marvel” co-stars sing some Ariana Grande before a polygraph expert joins them to liven up the commute. They asked each other questions about singing talent, fashion and Jackson’s farting. Honesty was not always their best policy.

Samuel L. Jackson Hits Back At Donald Trump With ‘Plantation’ Diss

The “Glass” actor, hounded by autograph seekers at Los Angeles International Airport, let the burn fly when someone brought up Trump’s controversial post-Oscars tweet. The president bragged that he “has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts, etc.) than almost any other Pres!” “Yeah, he’s got a bigger plantation,” Jackson snarked in the clip below, from TMZ. Trump’s boast was in response to Spike Lee’s Oscar acceptance speech, in which he urged people to get “on the right side of history” and “do the right thing” in the 2020 election. Trump accused Lee of a “racist hit on your president” and listed his claimed achievements for the black community. Lee and Jackson, a presenter for the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar, shared a...

Spike Lee And Samuel L. Jackson Had The Cutest Oscars 2019 Moment

No one was happier about Spike Lee’s Oscar win Sunday night than presenter and friend Samuel L. Jackson.  Lee, who took home the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on “BlacKkKlansman,” was greeted by Jackson onstage after the actor announced that Lee had won. As Jackson opened the envelope to announce the winner, he let out an excited howl before announcing that his dear friend Lee had finally won an Oscar.  He also yelled “the house!” referring to Morehouse College, a historically black college, which both Lee and Jackson attended.  One of the best moments tonight was the genuine happiness Samuel L. Jackson had for Spike Lee when he opened that envelope. #Oscars pic.twitter.com/hx9XjvYpKP — mercedes. (@KissMyLocs) February 25, 2019 The moment only got more adorable when Lee ma...

New ‘Shaft’ Trailer Boasts 3 Generations Of Shaft And Is Right On!

Three generations of movie hero Shaft are risking their necks for their brother man in a trailer for the new “Shaft.” The preview, unveiled on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday, is armed with laughs and action. It also boldly declares where the Harlem private eye fits among badass crime fighters. In a swipe at James Bond, Samuel L. Jackson’s John Shaft II cracks, “If that dude was real, he’d think he was me.” The update features the not-so-badass John Shaft Jr. (Jessie T. Usher), an MIT-graduated FBI analyst who gets his absent pop (Jackson) to help him investigate the death of a friend, Deadline reported. So they dive into the heroin underworld along with Shaft II’s uncle, the original screen Shaft (Richard Roundtree) of the 1971 blaxploitation classic. Jackson made a starring turn in the Joh...

‘Glass’ Tries To Do What No Other Superhero Movie Would Dare, But It Comes Up Short

Warning: Major “Glass” spoilers ahead. M. Night Shyamalan’s “Unbreakable” is one of only two superhero films listed among 2000′s biggest moneymakers. It was a different era then, a time when intimate survival dramas (“Cast Away”) and low-concept character comedies (“Meet the Parents”) could outperform something as mighty as “X-Men.” Without knowing it, “Unbreakable” anticipated the genre’s current ubiquity, deconstructing comic-book tropes for an audience that hadn’t yet come to await the moment Spider-Man would finally meet Doctor Strange.  “Glass,” a joint sequel connecting “Unbreakable” to Shyamalan’s 2016 psycho-horror exploitation “Split,” arrives with more baggage. Now, even moviegoers who have never so much as touched a comic book know the formula in and out; it’s harder to deconstr...

Poetry Slam: Samuel L. Jackson And Jimmy Fallon Go Rhyme Time On The Wall, The Weather And More

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon and actor Samuel L. Jackson teamed up on Monday to update the audience about current events with a poetry slam.

Samuel L. Jackson May Have Spoiled Huge Plot Point For ‘Captain Marvel’ And ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Little by little, we’re getting new details about the upcoming Marvel blockbusters “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame,” which come out later this year. Marvel is notoriously tight-lipped, but actor Samuel L. Jackson is talking, and he may have revealed a big plot point about the superpowers of Brie Larson’s character Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. Jackson let some information slip about Captain Marvel during a set visit with reporters last year, according to an ET report this week (emphasis ours): “She’s pretty much the strongest character … in the Marvel universe. So, for Carol Danvers to be that person and for Brie to become that person, it’s gonna be a dynamite thing. I mean, [the Avengers] are up against some really, really tough odds right now ― we saw throughout Infini...

Samuel L. Jackson Has Rashida Tlaib’s Back Over ‘Motherf**ker’ Donald Trump Rally Cry

Tlaib, just hours after her swearing-in ceremony on Thursday, promised supporters at an event hosted by progressive group MoveOn that “we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherfucker.” The tone of Tlaib’s rally cry didn’t sit well with many conservatives. Trump ― who once used the same term in a campaign rally to describe the Chinese ― called her comments “disgraceful.” But it clearly struck a chord with “Pulp Fiction” star Jackson, who tweeted over the weekend: Can someone that’s been in a Gunfight tell that Muthafukka that’s Never been in a Gunfight, the flaws of his Arm The Teachers plan??!! — Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) February 23, 2018
