The time has come for the RiffTrax crew (Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett, of MST3K fame) to return to U.S. movie theaters, with RiffTrax Live: Samurai Cop, their 24th RiffTrax title since 2009 for Fathom Events. This special presentation will find the trio breaking out fresh comedic commentary on the titular Samurai Cop and his partner as they journey from a faraway land called “San Diego” to bust up a gang whose stated goal is putting someone’s head on their piano. Check out the trailer below...

Oh, do I know that look... the one around 22-seconds into the "Official Origin Trailer" for Warner Bros.' forthcoming Wonder Woman. It's the look of a little girl with a certain streak... a little bit mischievous, and certainly adventurous. Wonder Woman is en route to theaters on June 2, and it's already secured a spot on our most-anticipated list here at Rock Father HQ - an entry in what's shaping up to be a massive year at the movies. Check this out...

Preview - Star Wars Rebels "Double Agent Droid"

Written by

This Saturday, the crew of the Ghost have a new issue at hand when Chopper and AP-5 team up to infiltrate an Imperial station to steal needed codes. Thing is, an Imperial specialist turns the droids against the crew to cause chaos, and that's not good. Check out this preview of "Double Agent Droid," the next all-new episode of Star Wars Rebels, airing this SATURDAY, MARCH 11 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.

Nothing at all against Emily Blunt (she's lovely and married to Jim Halpert John Krasinski), but I thought I had Mary Poppins cast perfectly back in December of 2015. My choice: Star Wars' Daisy Ridley.  Alas, my choice was overruled by the powers that be, and Mary Poppins Returns has come to life under the direction of Rob Marshall with Blunt in the title role, alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Colin Firth and Meryl Streep. Today we've got the first photo of Ms. Blunt as Ms. Poppins. Take a look!

Star Wars Rebels is truly some fantastic storytelling, and a series that our whole family enjoys watching together each week. That said, I was excited when the news hit my inbox that production is underway on the fourth season of the acclaimed animated series from Lucasfilm. The fourth season is scheduled to premiere on Disney XD later this year continuing the thrilling and inspiring galactic adventures of the Ghost crew.

With the madness of the Oscars now fading, Jimmy Kimmel is back behind the desk, and tonight he played host to the debut of a brand-new trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. You wanted more Baby Groot, and Marvel just delivered. Plus, this one gives us our first live-action look at a character revealed here on The Rock Father™ Magazine in action-figure form earlier this month... Kurt Russell as Star-Lord's dad, Ego!

Netflix #StreamTeamOver the past year or so, something has changed in our household dynamic here at Rock Father HQ... video games have become a part of daily life. Now, there have always been games present in our house, but aside from LEGO Dimensions and the late Disney Infinity, they weren't really noticed by our girls, The Rock Daughters™.  Oddly enough, despite having some of the newer consoles, it was the classics that really planted the bug. A brief session with the Atari 2600 at a birthday party last year... an infatuation with Super Mario Bros... a curiosity for the dark world of Castlevania. Mirroring my own childhood, Nintendo has become a big deal, with the 3DS XL the platform of choice.  Then, after I took our oldest daughter on a surprise trip to Nintendo's North American Headquarters in Redmond, Washington last November on the launch day for the NES Classic, the world of classic gaming just exploded here, looking toward the past with an eye on the present and future. An interest not only in the games, but also their history and legacy in other facets of pop culture manifested itself, and there's no better place to feed that quest for knowledge and entertainment than Netflix. With the much-anticipated release of the Nintendo Switch upon us, along with the announcement of Castlevania as a Netflix Original Series, here's a look at some video game-based titles to stream right now!

Trailer: It's the LAPD + Magic and Orcs in BRIGHT

Written by

Netflix #StreamTeamThe film just wrapped production earlier this month, but we've already got the first-look at Bright, a new Netflix Original Film. The teaser trailer just arrived during tonight's Oscars telecast, surprising viewers with Will Smith as a member of the LAPD who all of a sudden is rockin' a sword and pictured with an Orc. Indeed, Joel Edgerton co-stars as the LAPD's first "orc cop" in a film that's touted as a story of where "fantasy has become a reality." From director David Ayer (Suicide Squad), Bright will be streaming on Netflix this December. Take a look...

Here's a Star Wars Rumor that You've Heard Before...

Written by

Star Wars 40thHere's a rumor that you've no doubt heard before: The original, un-altered, non-Special Edition Star Wars Trilogy will soon see a re-release. If you haven't heard said rumor, go ahead and jump on Google - it surfaces a couple times a month, and it's been going on for years. This is the "hope" that eventually, we will see a restored version of the original films from 1977, 1980 and 1983 as they appeared in theaters. That means all mistakes and limitations of technology at the time are left intact - whether for the sake of history and film preservation, or simply to allow old folks (like myself) to enjoy the films as they originally saw them (no modern updates). In the past, these rumors have been just that - pure vapor. Thing is, in recent months, there have been some rumblings, and there just might be some legitimacy to them this time around. The folks over at Making Star Wars (who have a really good track record when it comes to accuracy in rumors) have heard some things... but the thing is, I've heard things, too.

We've long-expected that Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would be coming home in April, but this week that's been made official. Announced yesterday on The Star Wars Show and StarWars.com, Rogue One will be coming home on Digital HD on March 24th and Blu-ray on April 4th. This news comes on the heels of the start of production announcement of the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story.  Check out the new trailer and specs below!

A bunch of people (myself included) might've jumped the gun when reporting that the currently-untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story began filming last month. In reality, it was probably some second unit stuff, as word came down today that principal photography on the film officially began yesterday at Pinewood Studios, London. Set for release on May 25, 2018 (exactly 41 years after the 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope), the new film will explore the early adventures of Han Solo and Chewbacca, including "encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian."

We really need to find a way to get Josh Gad into a Star Wars film. While Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (probably not the real title) is lensing now, the follow-up to Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi should soon be ramping up with Colin Trevorrow at the helm. Gad is quite obviously Star Wars-obsessed (as most of us are), and that has certainly carried over into his work on Murder on the Orient Express, in which he stars alongside Daisy Ridley (whom I interviewed here), Rey herself. Over the past few months, he's pressed Ridley for answers - a quest that has been fruitless, and perhaps annoying.  Today, however, he didn't have any questions for Daisy. In fact, it was a familiar troupe of faces who had a few questions for one of The Last Jedi...
