Macaulay Culkin as Joker in The Batman? Some Fans Really Want It

Macaulay Culkin as Joker in The Batman? Some Fans Really Want It
Rumors are beginning to circulate about Macaulay Culkin portraying the Joker in The Batman, and many fans are actually responding positively to the idea. There have not been any official reports to suggest Culkin has been cast or is even in contention for the part, but the rumor definitely has people talking. To be honest, Culkin's name probably isn't the first to come to mind for most people when fan casting the Clown Prince of Crime, but it's not all that difficult to imagine. To see what it might be like, artist Bryan Zap took to Instagram to post an image of Culkin in that distinct Joker makeup, and it shows it's really not as crazy as it may at first sound.

Of course, we all know Macaulay Culkin best for his run as a child star in the '90s. He famously appeared as Kevin McCallister in Home Alone

No, Macaulay Culkin Won’t Do the ‘Home Alone’ Face for You (Video)

No, Macaulay Culkin Won’t Do the ‘Home Alone’ Face for You (Video)
It’s been 28 years since “Home Alone” was released, and Macaulay Culkin still won’t do “the face” for you when you ask him to.

“No,” he told Ellen DeGeneres when asked what he says when he’s asked to do the face. “I’ve already been there, done that. I’m 37 now, okay mom?”

“Everybody wants me to do it,” he added.

During his interview with DeGeneres, Culkin also says it’s been a “curse and a blessing” to have been so famous at such a young age. He says he can get any reservation he wants but will be stared at during the entire duration of his meal. And around Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the “Home Alone” films get played over and over again on TV, he tends to go out less and less.

“It’s Macaulay season,” he jokes.

Culkin starred in the films “My Girl,” the “Home Alone” movies, “Richie Rich,” “The Good Son,” “The Pagemaster” and in 2003, “Party Monster.” He stopped working at 14 and didn’t see his money until the age of 18 when he realized that he had made enough money working as a kid that he could do the rest of the things he does these days as just “a hobby.”

“I do nothing for my dinner nowadays,” the actor revealed.

He also told DeGeneres about his time on “Saturday Night Live” alongside Mike Myers in 1991. While everyone, still to this day, uses cue cards on the show, Culkin’s dad didn’t allow it.

“I had to do a whole episode without cue cards,” Culkin said. “My father was quite insistent.”

When DeGeneres pointed out that everyone uses cue cards, he responded, “Not the 9-year-old, I guess!”

DeGeneres also showed the audience various photos of Culkin’s career, including a photo of him with Michael Jackson for the “Black or White” music video, and a picture of him with Will Smith and Steve Urkel.

“That is the most ’90s photo I’ve ever seen!” Culkin said.

Cult of Chucky Is the Goriest Child's Play Yet Promises Director
Back in January, Cult of Chucky, Universal 1440's highly-anticipated horror sequel, started production, with director Don Mancini and star Jennifer Tilly sharing the first set photos. Now that the film is in post-production, the wait for the first trailer begins. But before the first footage drops, writer-director Don Mancini descended upon the Monsterpalooza convention in Pasadena, California this weekend, where he shed some new light on this sequel. During his convention appearance, the director made quite the bold statement, revealing that this will be the goriest Chucky movie ever.

"The gore effects in this movie, this is definitly the goriest of all of the movies. [This] wasn't something [we] set out to do, it just sort of turned out that way."

Don Mancini was joined by Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif and animatronic effects supervisor Tony Gardner at the convention, with the director revealing that the story picks up directly after 2013's Curse of Chucky.

Watch the announcement trailer for new Child’s Play film ‘Cult Of Chucky’

The announcement trailer for the upcoming Child’s Play movie Cult Of Chucky has landed. The film is coming to the home entertainment markets later in the year, courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Here’s the official plot.

Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride,

On this day in history: ‘Doctor Who’ premiered on BBC

On this day in history: ‘Doctor Who’ premiered on BBC
52 years ago today, viewers first watched a show that would become a British and sci-fi icon. “Doctor Who” premiered on this date on BBC in 1963. In that episode, William Hartnell played the first iteration of the Time Lord who would take audiences on all sorts of fun, odd, and even sorrowful adventures through spacetime. He played the character for four seasons (series, to you British folks), and since then — thanks to the Doctor’s two hearts and ability to regenerate — 11 more (11ish more) men have played the character. Though “Doctor Who” started off airing just in the U.K., the show has since managed to capture millions upon millions of hearts all around the world — even though we humans only have one each. For evidence of the show’s popularity and impact, just turn to the Oxford English Dictionary — which has a few entries from “Doctor Who,” including Tardis — or

PopWatch Confessional: What's the scariest thing you saw as a kid (that wasn't supposed to scare you)?
Ghosts, ghouls, vampires, demons—they've been frightening kids for centuries, and with good reason. But children's brains are strange, malleable places that can perceive even the most unassuming figures—a cute, helpful Jedi Grand Master, a cuddly elephantine creature, a precocious baby dinosaur—as sinister agents of terror. Which brings us to today's Halloween-inspired PopWatch Confessional: What's the unintentionally scary thing that frightened you most when you were a kid?

TNT Enlists Joe Johnston To Helm Pilot For Fantasy Series Lumen

Back before he was responsible for Captain America: The First Avenger, director Joe Johnston was behind another tale of fantasy and unlikely potential: The Pagemaster. The film featured Macauley Culkin as a cowardly boy who becomes an illustration and must overcome obstacles from classic books if he’s ever to return to reality. The family film was a bit of a dud and Johnston moved on, but it seems not everyone has forgotten his interest in family-friendly tales of being sucked into bookish magical worlds. TNT has tapped Johnston to direct the pilot of their new series Lumen, which bears some resemblance to The Pagemaster in both plot and subject matter.

Lumen takes a premise about a fantasy author who suddenly vanishes, followed by the disappearance of a family who are transported to the magical realm that inspired her work. There they come up against dark and light magical forces engaged in a heated battle,

Ten Best: Live-action/Animation Movies

  • Nerdly
Ari Folman, visionary director of Waltz With Bashir, brings us a journey beyond imagination in his upcoming movie The Congress. Robin Wright (pictured above) plays a version of herself in this thought-provoking film, which merges live-action and colourful animation. To celebrate the release of The Congress today (our review is here), we take a look at some other movies which have embraced a live-action/animation mash-up.

1) Mary Poppins

Family favourite Mary Poppins delighted audiences when it first burst onto screens in 1964, and now 50 years later the magical tale continues to enchant a brand new generation of film fans. The hit adventure’s wonderful mix of live-action and fantasy animation was surely one of the elements which won it five Oscars at the 1965 Academy Awards, including Best Visual Effects.

2) Ted

I Want That: Real-Life Jumanji Board Game

It was almost 20 years ago that director Joe Johnston (Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, The Pagemaster) brought us the family adventure movie Jumanji starring Robin Williams. In the movie, a supernatural board game makes wild animals materialize with each player's move. It was great fun and even left an opening for a sequel which hasn't been conjured up surprisingly. I haven't given the movie much thought over the years; that is until today, when I saw that I could own my...

Joe Johnston Will Direct Alien Invasion Thriller Extinction

After helming Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger to widespread acclaim, director Joe Johnston is returning to his sci-fi roots for an upcoming alien invasion thriller. Johnston, who got his start as an effects artist and arts director on the original Star Wars trilogy, has signed on to helm Extinction, a sci-fi thriller about a man trying to save his family in the face of an alien invasion.

Described as a “contained sci-fi thriller,” Extinction boasts a script by Spenser Cohen, an up-and-coming screenwriter who previously sold three spec scripts to major studios between 2011 and 2012. Good Universe, which preemptively picked up Extinction last September, compared the project to The Sixth Sense and Cloverfield, though the studio is keeping details on the story tightly under wraps. All I can imagine “contained” to mean is low-budget, so Extinction will likely have a quick shoot and get out to a studio within the next 12 to 18 months.

Whoopi Goldberg admits to being high when she won her Oscar

Whoopi Goldberg admits to being high when she won her Oscar
With all this talk about James Franco and how he seemed under-the-influence at the Oscars (he wasn’t, however), it would seem that someone felt the need to bring Whoopi Goldberg into the mix. According to AOL PopEater, the actress/comedian has been seen in a video dating from 1992. The video, which was shot during a recording session for the animated film “The Pagemaster”, has Goldberg saying that she was high when she accepted her Oscar for “Ghost”. “When [Oscar presenter Denzel Washington] said my name and I popped up, I thought, ‘Oh f—…okay, up the stairs…around the podium…pick up the statue, get the statue.” Earlier in the video Goldberg mentions that [...]
