Very weird elf-like creature captured on video
Posted on Monday, 10 June, 2019 |



What the heck is this thing ? Image Credit: Facebook / Vivian Gomez
A woman on Facebook recently posted CCTV footage of an utterly bizarre creature walking down her driveway.
Vivian Gomez, who lives in the US, captured the footage in the early hours of the morning.

"So I woke up Sunday morning and saw this on my camera and am trying to figure out... what the heck??" she wrote. "First I saw the shadow walking from my front door then I saw this thing....has anyone else seen this on their cameras??"

"The other two cameras didn't pick it up for some reason."

Sure enough, the mysterious figure can be clearly seen in the footage as it walks - often awkwardly - past the parked vehicle and down the driveway towards the road.

Some social media users have likened the creature to Dobby the Elf from the Harry Potter series.

"Why does 'Dobby' look like he just stumbled out of the bar at 3am," one Twitter user joked.

As things stand, the peculiar footage remains a total mystery.

Director Explains Kong’s Absence From Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Director Explains Kong’s Absence From Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Godzilla: King of Monsters hit the theaters a couple of weeks ago, and many fans have noticed Kong’s absence from the final clash despite the many references to him throughout the movie. Now, King of Monsters director Mike Dougherty has taken to Twitter to cast some light on why Kong didn’t join the rest of the iconic kaiju in the final battle.

Dougherty shared an excerpt from the official novelization by Greg Keyes, which explains that Kong (and the Skullcrawlers) did hear a call from “others somewhat more like him” even before, but he has always chosen to ignore it. The reason why is the fact that he only cared about his Skull Island. The events of King of Monsters, though, have brought some change, so now Kong is looking for those responsible.

Speaking of Kong, we might have a problem with the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong. The movie is supposed to stomp into theaters in March of the next year, but over at Deadline, Warner Bros. boss Toby Emmerich has revealed that they are thinking about postponing the release of next year’s clash of titans. “[Godzilla vs. Kong] will deliver for fans in the way they were looking for [in Godzilla: King of the Monsters],” Emmerich said. “It might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie.”

Emmerich’s intention to deliver an A+ movie may also hide a concern about the movie underperforming at the box office, more or less like King of the Monsters.

Godzilla vs. Kong is scheduled to be released on March 13, 2020. What do you think about the fact that the movie might come out later in 2020? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Dark Phoenix Reviews – What Did You Think?!
After nearly two decades, the 20th Century Fox X-Men movies are finished. Because Disney has purchased Fox’s entertainment assets, Dark Phoenix will be the last X-Men film featuring the team before Marvel Studios takes over the franchise. Unfortunately, Dark Phoenix was greeted by poor reviews and a disappointing $33 million opening weekend. But did it really deserve such a negative response? We want to know what the Superhero Hype community thinks about it! This post is a place for all of you to leave your own reviews, thoughts, or anything else you want to say about Dark Phoenix.

Dark Phoenix marks the directorial debut of long-time X-Men screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg. Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s The Dark Phoenix Saga was a seminal story that helped make Uncanny X-Men a sensation in 1980 and beyond. X-Men: The Last Stand also attempted to adapt elements of The Dark Phoenix Saga. In theory, Dark Phoenix was supposed to be a chance to get it done right this time.

Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) reprises her role as Jean Grey. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender co-star as Professor X and Magneto, respectively. Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Evan Peters also return from the previous X-Men movies. Jessica Chastain also stars in the movie as the primary villain.

Dark Phoenix is out in theaters now. Make sure to leave your Dark Phoenix reviews in the comment section below!

Dark Phoenix May Lose Over $100 Million

Dark Phoenix May Lose Over $100 Million
Over the weekend, Dark Phoenix came in well under its $50 million projected opening. Instead, 20th Century Fox’s final X-Men movie managed only $33 million and second place behind The Secret Life of Pets 2. That gave Dark Phoenix the lowest opening of any X-Men film. It may also be one of the biggest superhero bombs in recent memory.

ADVERTISEMENTSCROLL TO CONTINUE READING
According to Deadline, Dark Phoenix is estimated to lose $100 to $120 million after its final box office is tallied. The report also states that the film cost Fox around $350 million; which includes production costs, the reshoots, and the global publicity campaign. Dark Phoenix’s worldwide take is currently projected to land somewhere between $300 and $325 million. But one thing to keep in mind is that the studio splits those box office proceeds with the theaters. And China takes a much larger percentage out of American movie grosses than the other countries do.

RELATED: Dark Phoenix Review – Sending the X-Men Out With a Whimper
The report places the blame for this debacle squarely on Fox, as Dark Phoenix originally wrapped two summers ago. That was months before Fox and Disney began making a deal to merge the companies. Additionally, Deadline states that the climax wasn’t changed because of its similarities to Captain Marvel. Instead, it suggests that test audiences weren’t happy with the third act.

“The feeling from the audience in testing was that they wanted to see all the X-Men heroes fighting in the end,” noted the report. It also added that “the movie was never intended to be a summer film….It was always seen as an off-season release, and the original plan was to get out ahead of Captain Marvel and be the first female-led Marvel movie.”

While this is an embarrassing moment for Fox’s X-Men franchise, it shouldn’t hamper Marvel Studios’ eventual plans for these characters. However, perhaps an extended break between X-Men movies will be the best way forward. Marvel’s Kevin Feige has already suggested that the X-Men won’t appear in the MCU “for a very long time.” That may be for the best.

Stars reveal Dark Phoenix was being constantly rewritten on set
We are just hours away from the official release of the last installment in the Fox’s X-Men franchise. As soon as Dark Phoenix hits the theaters, the mutants lead by Professor Xavier will come back to Marvel Studios. Speaking with Screen Rant, Dark Phoenix star Sophie Turner has revealed that director and writer Simon Kinberg was constantly rewriting movie’s screenplay on the set.

“Simon and I would sit down for two hours every day and just comb through each page of the script,” Turner said. “There was rewriting being done all the time.”

In the same interview, fellow Dark Phoenix star Jessica Chastain said that Kinberg used to decide the movie’s direction overnight.

“You could have a conversation and something comes from that and then the next morning, Simon would show up to work and say, ‘hey, I wrote some pages that I think could be interesting for this direction we’re going,'” Chastain stated.

Now all that rests to see is how Simon Kinberg’s movie will perform at the box office. The early reviews, though, have been mainly bad.

The last installment to Fox’s X-Men film franchise opens in theaters June 7. What do you think about Turner’s and Chastain’s revelations? Let us know in the comments section below.

Dark Phoenix Director Compares Original Ending To Civil War
Warning: There are spoilers ahead for X-Men: Dark Phoenix!

ADVERTISEMENTSCROLL TO CONTINUE READING
X-Men: Dark Phoenix had its fair share of rewrites, even in the middle of shooting. Director and screenwriter Simon Kinberg recently spoke to Gizmodo about how he had to make changes to the ending of Dark Phoenix. Apparently, it was a little too close to another Marvel film –  Captain America: Civil War.

“My original ending didn’t have the entire X-Family together the way they are in the film now,” said Kinberg. “More than Captain Marvel, you could see a lot of Civil War in that ending. Usually, these big, huge action movies have the climactic moment in the third act. I loved the way that Civil War had its big action set piece where everyone’s facing off more towards the end of the second act rather than in the third, so that after that huge battle, you’re left with Winter Soldier, Captain America, and Iron Man.”

“It’s this telescoped down view of their raw emotions, and I loved how intimate that was,” continued Kinberg. “That’s what I was going for with Dark Phoenix’s ending even though it then might have looked like Captain Marvel for about two minutes.”

Related: Famke Janssen On Dark Phoenix and Her Possible Future With the X-Men
Dark Phoenix does have a few elements similar to Civil War. Midway through, Charles Xavier and Magneto are on opposite sides, divided over the fate of Jean Grey. But they eventually unite when the real threat emerges.

Thus far, Dark Phoenix has generated $5 million from Thursday night screenings, indicating it’s on its way to a potential $50 million opening weekend. That’s lower than the most recent X-Men movies, including Days of Future Past’s $90 million and Apocalypse’s $65 million from 2016.

Dark Phoenix is now in theaters. What do you think about the film’s current ending? Let us know in the comment section below.

Endgame Creative Team Talks Alternate Fates for the Avengers

Endgame Creative Team Talks Alternate Fates for the Avengers
Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame!

ADVERTISEMENTSCROLL TO CONTINUE READING
Avengers: Endgame lived up to its name and gave a few of its heroes a definitive ending. However, things could have played out differently. While speaking with Empire, the Endgame creative team shared a few alternate fates for the characters.

According to co-screenwriter Christopher Markus, “Marvel as a whole said, ‘We think it might be a time [for Tony to die], but if you have a good reason not to do it, feel free – we’ll do whatever.’ But it really did seem like, particularly with what Tony experiences after the five year break – that he has gotten married, had a kid, and is living a very healthy, peaceful life for once, and he’s had five full years of no surprises – that there wasn’t anywhere left that he needed to go.”

This was a guy who had made his full journey, all the way to the end, had experienced a full rehabilitation of his character from being the ****…at the beginning of the first Iron Man. To have him make the sacrifice that Steve Rogers would have made had he had the opportunity at that moment, just felt really right.”

But with all this focus on Iron Man biting the dust, some fans were wondering…why not Captain America? There’s a simple reason for Cap’s survival, according to co-director Joe Russo.

“Once you kill a beloved character like [Tony], you’ve got to have hope at the end of the movie in some regard, and the only person to give you that hope is the other co-lead,” noted Russo. “Had we killed both the leads, I feel like people would have been walking out into traffic after the film. The intention is not to destroy people, it’s to hopefully tell a complex and dimensionalized story in a way, that makes them feel a varied range of emotion.”

You can read up on all of the additional details here.

Swamp Thing Reportedly Cancelled By DC Universe
A bolt from the blue has just struck Abby Arcane’s fans, as DC Universe has apparently cancelled Swamp Thing just a week into the first season. According to a report by Bloody Disgusting, “the show lost support from executives before it even aired.” Additionally, the decision shouldn’t be attributable to budget or performance on DC Universe, but to the WarnerMedia/AT&T executives not liking the direction of the show, says a report from GWW. The cast and crew supposedly received the notification of the cancellation of the series late last night.

RELATED – Swamp Thing Season 1 Episode 1 Recap
The series premiered May 31, 2019 on the video-on-demand service operated by DC Entertainment, and it received generally favorable reviews. It seems that Swamp Thing has an unlucky aura surrounding it when it comes to television adaptations. The news of DC Universe cancellation of Swamp Thing reminds us of the animated series which debuted on Fox Kids in April 1991. In that case, it only aired five episodes. On the other hand, in the early ’90s, the USA Network ran a Swamp Thing series for three seasons.

It will now be interesting to see how the choice to cancel the series prior to the filming of the season finale will affect the subscriptions to DC Entertainment’s video-on-demand service. Additionally, this could be just the first of many scapegoats to explain the problems the service has.

The next episode of Swamp Thing airs June 7 on DC Universe. What do you think about Swamp Thing‘s cancellation? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
