We’ve all been there: a favored book is snapped up for adaptation, with a whole lot of potential behind it: solid cast, crew, production values, etc. When it hits theaters, you walk out wishing that they’d done everything differently.
Andròn, the first feature from Italian filmmaker Francesco Cinquemani, stars a cast of unknowns alongside two Hollywood stars (Alec Baldwin, Danny Glover) Its concept appears to meld The Hunger Games’ fight-to-the-death competition, The Truman Show’s all-seeing overlord, and the greenish-black palette of a thousand…
One of the key members of the Justice League just lost his boss. Seth Grahame-Smith, who wrote and was planning on directing The Flash solo movie slated for 2018, has left the project due to “creative differences.”
Several weeks ago production on the third Maze Runner film, The Death Cure, was shut down when star Dylan O’Brien was injured on set. Now, a new report says his injuries were worse than originally thought and the film has been postponed indefinitely.
If you’re going to do an X-Men movie set in the ’80s, which record album are you going to show Cyclops and Jean Grey picking up? There’s really only one option.
Hey, who remembers Aqua? And now, who remembers anything about Aqua that isn’t about how they got sued by Mattel for the song “Barbie Girl?” Because they also did a song that mentioned Indiana Jones. It is very bad and also very amazing.
Rosalind Franklin, the British scientist whose research enabled the discovery of DNA’s double helix, will be getting a biopic if spec script Exposure is made. Fingers crossed, because not only would a feature film bring Franklin some much-deserved recognition—her life would make for quite a dramatic movie.
The next trailer for Star Trek Beyond is still a few weeks away, but several new photos from the July release have just hit the web and it looks like everyone is really, really scared. (Well, everyone except director Justin Lin.)
Even with Civil War’s marketing bombardment, we’ve not really seen all that much of T’Challa in action—a kick here, a scratch of the ol’ vibranium shield there. But this new clip gives us a short, but oh so sweet scene of the Black Panther kicking ass that’s too good not to see.
We all know the drill. There are three kinds of movies for kids: 1) Ones that are for adults, just as much as kids (Pixar, etc.) 2) Ones that adults can get some enjoyment out of. 3) Ones that kids like, but adults will claw their faces off. Ratchet & Clank belongs to the second group, and it’s perfectly fine.
Board games are just one of the many places movie studios are looking for their next big franchise these days. Now, the latest to get them all hot and bothered is Monsterpocalypse, which allows players to battle giant monsters in giant robot suits.
It’s probably too late to book an affordable ticket to Dallas for this weekend’s Texas Frightmare convention, but it may be worth it. Mondo has revealed some crazy cool new posters for Scream, Jaws, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and more that’ll exclusively debut at the event.
Artist Prasad Bhat made this fantastic art series, The Evolution, that tracks the career of famous actors and the iconic roles they’ve played in different movies. It’s great because the expression of each actor never changes (and the expressions are so, so on point), even through all the characters’ costumes and wigs…
The reboot of the Tomb Raider movie series, based on the iconic gaming franchise, has found its new Lara Croft: Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, perhaps best know for her roles in The Danish Girl and as the android Ava in Ex Machina.
Current A&E drama Damien picks up where The Omen ended, fast-forwarding to cast the Antichrist as a 30-year-old New Yorker who’s rediscovering his demonic destiny. It’s an uneven show. But Satan’s pop-culture moment surges forth with the announcement that an Omen prequel movie is now in the works.
Donnie Darko is one of those movies I watched and rewatched endlessly during college. The small, but bold, tale of a troubled young man saving his family and friends spoke to me in ways I don’t quite recall 15 years later. I just know I loved it. However, rewatching the director’s cut of the film (released on DVD in…
This summer some huge, epic action films will be coming to a theater near you, but none of them look like they can hold a candle to Kubo and the Two Strings. The third trailer is here and it shows an adventure on an epic scale we rarely see in movies—and definitely not movies made with stop-motion animation.
We got a glimpse of the new generation of X-Men’s comic-inspired costumes thanks to Empire Magazine recently, but a new image of the mutant team reveals their uniforms from top to bottom, and they look wonderfully colorful and silly in just the right way.
One of the Deadpool movie’s best elements was how the movie brought his mask to life. This might shock you to learn, but there was an astounding amount of work involved in making a mask that could be as expressive as it is in the comics, but that Ryan Reynolds’ could still see and talk out of.
It’s been two weeks since Disney’s Jungle Book was released—and we still can’t quite believe the whole thing was filmed in a downtown L.A. warehouse. Now Disney is peeling back the curtain and showing us just how this incredible spectacle was created.
