There's a wonderful hidden 'Indiana Jones' reference in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

raiders of the lost ark

Sound editors for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" managed to slide an "Indiana Jones" Easter egg into the film.

In an interview with NerdistMatthew Wood, supervising sound editor, and David Acord, supervising sound editor and sound designer, revealed how they created some of what you hear in the film.

"When the Rathtar is rolling down the hallway after Han and Chewie, I put in the sound of Ben Burtt’s boulder-roll sound from 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' when the boulder is chasing Indy," Acord said. 

han solo star wars the force awakensTo refresh your memory, the Rathtar is the vicious-looking beast that goes after Han Solo and Chewbacca when they're also being pursued by two criminal organizations.

Burtt is an Oscar-winning sound editor and designer who also worked on the original "Star Wars" films. 

Another Rathar sound was actually Acord choking himself. 

"When the rathtar has his mouth on the cockpit of the Falcon, when it’s trying to eat the cockpit, that is me literally choking myself," he said. "Finger down my throat in front of the mic to accomplish that and then it’s pitched down."

He also revealed that the sound used to create Kylo Ren's (Adam Driver) Force rumble is "a heavily pitched and slowed version" of his cat purring.  

Both Wood and Acord are nominated for an Oscar this year for sound editing on "Force Awakens."

14 of the most convincing 'Harry Potter' fan theories we can't stop thinking about

ron weasley

Though it's been nearly a decade since J.K. Rowling finished the "Harry Potter" series, people are still obsessed with the books. So much so that fan theories still pop up every now and again about characters, the history of Muggles and wizards, and the magic itself.

Keep reading to see 14 of the best theories we can't stop thinking about:

Ron Weasley is a time-traveling Dumbledore.

Though it's unclear where this theory originated, it was quoted on a "Harry Potter" discussion board.

At any rate, at least one reader noticed many similarities between Dumbledore and Ron, including that they both have red hair, blue eyes, a love for sweets, and at one point in time injured their left leg — Ron when he's attacked by Sirius Black in his dog form in "Prisoner of Azkaban" and Dumbledore with a scar on his left knee that looks like the London Underground.

Of course, in "The Deathly Hallows" we learned Dumbledore's true tragic backstory, but this is still a fun theory to have thrown around. You can read it in it's entirety here.



Professor Trelawney senses Voldemort within Harry from the beginning the series.

On Quora, one observant "Harry Potter" fan noticed that when Professor Trelawney first tries to guess Harry's birth month, she guesses that he was born in "midwinter."

Harry, of course, was born in July, but when was Voldemort born? December 31, or midwinter.

Given that Harry was one of Voldemort's Horcruxes, it's possible Sybill Trelawney focused on the part of Voldemort's soul living within Harry when she made her prediction.



Lord Voldemort became a cannibal to make his Horcruxes.

The process of making a Horcrux is something J.K. Rowling still keeps secret from fans. All we know is that it involves a spell, murder, and a separate, unspeakable act.

One Reddit user has a theory that the awful act that the wizard has to commit in order to make the Horcrux is to cannibalize the victim.

The Reddit user sirlionel13 explains:

My theory is that in order to make a Horcrux, you must consume the flesh and blood of your victim. We know that it is considered one of the darkest arts known to the 20th century magical community, we know that the process involves a murder, a spell, and some atrocious act. We know that this act is something that seems to make Slughorn, Hermione, and J.K.'s editor sick to think about.

Read the whole theory here.

Kurt Russell destroyed a priceless 145-year-old guitar on the set of 'The Hateful Eight' — and the manufacturer is furious

0

hateful eight

It turns out Kurt Russell went a little too far in portraying a cagey bounty hunter in Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie "The Hateful Eight."

The actor is responsible for destroying a 145-year-old guitar during shooting.

The guitar, which Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character plays in one scene until it’s snatched by Russell, who then smashes it against a pillar, was a one-of-a-kind Martin from the 1870s that was on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum.

In all fairness, Russell didn't know he was handling an antique in the scene. And according to Dick Boak, the director of the museum, archives, and special projects for C.F. Martin & Co., the production didn't fess up to exactly how the guitar was destroyed.

“We assumed that a scaffolding or something fell on it,” Boak told Reverb. “We understand that things happen, but at the same time we can’t take this lightly. All this about the guitar being smashed being written into the script and that somebody just didn’t tell the actor, this is all new information to us. We didn’t know anything about the script or Kurt Russell not being told that it was a priceless, irreplaceable artifact from the Martin Museum.”

So what went wrong?

The film’s sound mixer, Mark Ulano, filled in SSN Insider

"What was supposed to happen was we were supposed to go up to that point, cut, and trade guitars and smash the double,” according to Ulano, who said six doubles were made of the Martin guitar. “Well, somehow that didn’t get communicated to Kurt, so when you see that happen on the frame, Jennifer’s reaction is genuine.”

Here’s the destruction of the Martin in the movie (check out Leigh’s reaction at the end):

Boak told Reverb that the museum has been remunerated for the insurance value of the guitar.

But that wasn't enough to heal the matter.

"As a result of the incident, the company will no longer loan guitars to movies under any circumstances,” Boak told SSN.

Business Insider contacted Boak to try to get an idea of the value of the destroyed guitar. He said he wouldn't provide more comments about the matter, only stating, “It’s not replaceable.”

Los Angeles is tearing down a landmark bridge from 1930's

bridge

The end has begun for a downtown bridge that played a supporting role in many Hollywood chase scenes down the concrete-lined Los Angeles River.

Giant jackhammers reduced 220 feet of the 6th Street Bridge roadway to rubble by Saturday morning and were working on bringing down three massive support columns, said Mary Nemick of the city Public Works Department.

"We had taken down the entire top of the bridge. That's completely gone as of eight this morning," she said.

Crews worked through the night under floodlights to dismantle the deck, which spans theS 101 freeway and the concrete-lined Los Angeles River.

The bridge's concrete bottom and sides are a Hollywood favorite; the bridge has been in countless films.

Think rival gang members Danny and Leo racing in "Grease" or big chases in "Terminator 2" and "Gone in 60 Seconds."

A 2.5-mile section of the freeway was closed Friday and a segment under the bridge covered with 2 feet of dirt to protect it from the tons of concrete that crashed down on it.

Detouring drivers on other freeways didn't find too much of a problem, with delays ranging from about 15 minutes to 25 minutes, said Laurie Wonder of the California Department of Transportation.

"It's actually been better than we expected. People are heeding the detour rules and heeding our warnings" to stay away from the area, she said.

LA bridgeIf all goes well, the freeway will reopen Sunday afternoon, just before the Super Bowl kicks off.

Considered state-of-the-art when it was built in 1932, the bridge has been suffering from a chemical reaction that for decades has weakened its concrete.

Eventually, the entire 3,500-foot bridge will be replaced by a new roadway that has the potential to become another Hollywood backdrop. A 2019 opening has been set after $449 million in work.

Arches above the roadway of the new span are designed to resemble the intermittent arcs of a stone skipping across water.

Here's a clip from the movie "Grease" that shows the bridge:

'Deadpool' is the most unique superhero movie in years — here's why you need to see it

deadpool hanging out

As many prepare for the battle between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man in “Captain America: Civil War,” out in May, for now we're taking a detour in the Marvel universe as we’re introduced to one of its most complex characters, Deadpool.

Led by Ryan Reynolds as the character, the new movie adaptation of the comic book, in theaters February 12, is the first look at a Marvel character from an R-rated perspective. Filled with graphic violence and a lot of bad language, 20th Century Fox's effort brings a harder-edged feel to the superhero genre than what we're familiar with from the Disney releases (“The Avengers,” “Iron Man,” etc.).

But there’s more to why “Deadpool” is one of the most unique superhero movies ever made.

We’ve come up with 5 big reasons you should see it:

(Warning: spoilers ahead.)

SEE ALSO: 20 modern classic movies everyone needs to watch in their lifetime

1. Ryan Reynolds making fun of himself

The Deadpool character is a former Special Forces operative who, after an experiment, possesses accelerated healing powers. True, that doesn’t sound much different from any other superhero origin story, but it’s the psychotic persona of Wade Wilson (aka Deadpool) that sets him apart. To harness that on the big screen, Hollywood has called on Mr. Sarcasm himself, Ryan Reynolds.

But “Deadpool” goes a step further than having Reynolds throw a fun line or two. To really portray the character correctly, it had to be brutal. And Reynolds obliged. He plays on his box-office bomb as Green Lantern in 2011, once being People’s Sexiest Man Alive, even taking jabs at his own acting talents.

It’s fun to see Reynolds can take a joke (or five). 



2. Lots of pop-culture references

Don’t fret if you’re not up on your “Deadpool” comics knowledge. The movie is made for both the super-fan and the novice. One of the pleasures is taking in the references to pop culture that are filled throughout. From a Salt-N-Pepa song to Deadpool throwing out lines about Negasonic Teenage Warhead looking like Sinéad O’Connor (and then there’s the scene after the end credits; don’t worry, we won’t give it away), it’s a fun ride for the '80s-and-'90s-nostalgic audience.

One of the biggest threads through the movie is Deadpool’s love for the band Wham!, specifically the group's hit “Careless Whisper.”



3. Breaking the fourth wall

Most superhero movies are focused entirely on the action, but Deadpool is fully aware there’s an audience looking at him, and he can’t help but chat it up. This leads to some enormously entertaining moments, like explaining how he met his roommate, Blind Al, or giving us his backstory while being pummeled by Colossus. And as anyone familiar with Ryan Reynolds' style of comedy knows, he is very comfortable doing that.

'Kung Fu Panda 3' cruises to top the box office for a second-straight weekend

kung fu panda 3 20th Century Fox

With little competition from the new releases this weekend, the animated comedy "Kung Fu Panda 3" easily came in first at the box office with an estimated $21 million, according to pro.boxoffice.com.

And in second place for the weekend was the Coen brothers' latest, "Hail, Caesar!," but with an estimated $11.44 million, it was the lowest wide release opening ever for a Coens movie. However, with the style of the Coens — which is far from general-audience friendly — opening over Super Bowl weekend, Universal must be pleased with this opening.

Both the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation, "The Choice," and genre flick, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," had disappointing openings with $6.09 million and $5 million, respectively.

As the Super Bowl lands on Sunday, don't expect much of a surge by any of these titles going into Monday. But the good times at the top for "Kung Fu Panda 3" are probably over.

Two anticipated titles of the early year, "Deadpool" and "Zoolander 2," will open in theaters on Friday.

Cloverfield1 final

Here's the latest teaser for "10 Cloverfield Lane" that premiered during the Super Bowl.

Every since the release of 2008's found-footage monster horror movie "Cloverfield," directed by Matt Reeves ("Dawn of the Planet of the Apes") and produced by J.J. Abrams, there's always been talk of a sequel, and now it's finally happened. 

The first trailer for "10 Cloverfield Lane" is below, and looks more like a movie set within the same world of "Cloverfield" than a sequel.

Both clips don't give away much, other than that it stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("Scott Pilgrim vs. The World"), and John Gallagher Jr. ("The Newsroom"), who are living underground for some reason. And when Winstead's character tries to get to the surface, Goodman's character chases after her, telling her if she goes outside, "you're going to get all of us killed."

We're certainly intrigued. 

Collider got this quote from Abrams about the movie:

“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of 'Cloverfield.' The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”

It will be interesting to see how closely it touches on the original movie (both Reeves and "Cloverfield" screenwriter Drew Goddard are not listed on the film's IMDb page). 

Here's the trailer (and below that, the poster). "10 Cloverfield Lane" opens March 11.

It looks like Zac Efron and Aubrey Plaza aren't done with hard-partying comedies. 

Having just done "Dirty Grandpa," they're now teaming with Anna Kendrick and Adam Devine ("Workaholics") to star in "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates," which looks like a mix of "Wedding Crashers" and "Step Brothers."

Efron and Devine play siblings whose antics at family parties have gotten so out of hand that their parents have demanded that they find respectable dates to their sister's Hawaiian wedding. They decide to put out an online ad looking for their dates, which is spotted by two friends (Kendrick and Plaza) who are willing to look the part of respectable gals to get a free trip to Hawaii. And from there hilarity ensues (or let's hope so).

Check out the trailer here. The movie comes out July 8.

'Deadpool' has a secret post-credits scene, here's what we know

0

Deadpool_pounce

When it comes to modern comic book movies, it has become standard to include post-credits scenes that tease big events to come in the future of the franchise. Marvel Studios has clearly been big on it, and 20th Century Fox has gotten in on the fun as well – attaching special scenes to "The Wolverine" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Following in this tradition, director Tim Miller’s "Deadpool" has gotten in on the tag action as well… but while one of the post-credits sequences is being shown to critics, the other one is being kept for the film’s theatrical release.

I had the opportunity to chat with "Deadpool" writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick recently, and while discussing the film’s post-credits scene (which I won’t be spoiling here), they revealed that critics are only seeing one of two sequences that were put together for the movie. Said Reese:

“They held back one particular, basically a second coda. They wanted to hold it back until February 11th, until the actual official movie is in the movies - so you can tease audiences that there’s two codas and you haven’t seen one of them.”

Having seen and loved "Deadpool," I can tell you that the sequence that’s being shown to critics shows up at the very, very end, which means that the "second coda" is probably what’s been described as a "mid-credits" scene. Obviously at this point we have no idea what will be included, but one can hope that it’s a) a very cool cameo, b) an interesting tease for "Deadpool 2," or c) both.

It’s commonplace these days that post-credits scenes in superhero movies are shown to critics during press screenings, but it hasn’t always been the case. For example, back in 2011, early showings of Joe Johnston’s "Captain America: The First Avenger" didn’t include the special teaser for Joss Whedon’s "The Avengers." And speaking of the 2012 team-up blockbuster, the premiere and other showings did not include the final scene where all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are noshing on shawarma (though that was mostly because the sequence wasn’t put together until after the press junket).

The AvengersSo, if you’re going to be going to see "Deadpool" this weekend - and I hope all of you are - do yourself a favor and stick around until all of the names of those involved with the movie have rolled on the big screen.

Sylvester Stallone offered to boycott this year's Oscars in solidarity with 'Creed' director

Sylvester Stallone Ian Gavan Getty

Sylvester Stallone was ready to boycott this year's Oscars in solidarity with his "Creed" colleagues.

“I remember I spoke with ['Creed' director] Ryan Coogler when this happened and I said, ‘How do you want to handle this? Because I feel like you are responsible for me being here,'” Stallone told TheWrap at the luncheon honoring this year’s Oscars nominees on Monday.

Coogler, who is African-American, and "Creed" star Michael B. Jordan were both passed over for Oscar nominations this year. Stallone, though, was nominated for reprising the role of Rocky Balboa in the film — and he's currently favored to win.

Stallone, who also served as a producer and writer on "Creed" remembered, “I said, ‘If you don’t want me to go, I won’t.’ He said, ‘I want you to go.’ That’s the kind of guy he is. He wanted me to stand up for the film.”

Many members of the entertainment community have spoken up against the Oscars' absence of major nominations for black people — including the second shutout for black actors in two consecutive years.

Spike Lee, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, and George Clooney are among the many celebrities who expressed their anger over the lack of diversity in the Oscar awards nominations.

In response, the Academy reiterated its intention to make diversity a priority, and is changing some rules to do so.

A new "X-Men: Apocalypse" teaser aired during Super Bowl 50, showing off brand new footage from the upcoming film. 

In only 30 seconds, we saw returning favorites Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), and Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) along with the long-awaited debut of Psylocke (Olivia Munn), who will appear on-screen in "Apocalypse" for the first time ever.

The teaser gave us a better look at the story as well, as the X-Men face off against Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), the original mutant. 

We'll have to wait until May 27 for the full film, but we have our first hints at how to stop the Apocalypse right now: 

 

The trailer opens with missiles launching, setting off the end-of-the-world tone. In "Apocalypse," the X-Men face off against the original mutant, who wants to destroy and remake the world.



Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) is shown here in the woods with a small group of people, possibly mutants.

hitler look whos back

Netflix has plans to release two dozen movies and documentaries in 2016.

Here's one more you can add to the list: a comedy about Hitler that was a big hit in Germany.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Look Who's Back," which is based on a best-selling 2012 novel, "Er ist wieder da," will come to the streaming service in April.  

The film follows Adolf Hitler as he wakes up in 2011 with no memory of anything since 1945. Hitler (played by German actor Oliver Masucci), poor and alone in the world, ends up landing a show on TV after others mistake him for a comedian. Little do they know he's the real deal. 

Imagine seeing how Hitler would interact with typical Germans and you have an idea of what to expect from "Look Who's Back." 

Netflix has global rights to the series. THR reports the film will be available starting April 9 on Netflix.

Ryan Reynolds explains what it was like to shoot a nude fight scene in 'Deadpool'

0

Ryan Reynolds

The R-rated “Deadpool” goes out of its way to be a different moviegoing experience for superhero fans, with its adult language and ultra-violence.

But to drive home just how adult the material is, the film also includes a nude fight scene between Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and his nemesis Ajax (Ed Skrein).

In a recent interview with Buzzfeed, Reynolds went into some detail about the experience of shooting the sequence. 

“There’s a lot of me there,” Reynolds said. “There’s nothing else you can do except to sorta grin, bear it, and go, ‘All right guys, we’re all going to get to really know each other today…’ It was ugly by necessity.”

I guess necessary in the sense that the scene follows the experiment that makes Deadpool into a mutant, so showing him nude in the fight yet apparently unharmed from it gives you a good indication that he can no longer feel pain and he can easily heal. (And for the record: There is no gratuitous full-frontal shot — the scene is tastefully done.)

Reynolds also dropped some movie knowledge, saying that for inspiration he went back and watched Viggo Mortensen in "Eastern Promises," in which the "Lord of the Rings" actor has a nude fight scene in a sauna. (Check it out, but just a head’s up, it's NSFW.)

“I always thought there’s nothing more frightening than trying to fight a nude man in a Russian sauna,” Reynolds said.

"Deadpool" opens in theaters on Friday.
