The legacy of the almighty Godzilla is such that most hardcore fans keep our minds occupied by the lovable picture of a giant, rubber monster with a man lurking inside. Such was the Japanese way of creating their iconic bane of Tokyo. Now, however, things are a little bit different. The 2014 reboot of the classic lizard is stepping things up a bit and turning Godzilla into something a little more realistic. Will it work out? Listen to what director Gareth Edwards has to say on the matter in the video below. (more…)

To some, the very thought of sitting down and watching a Disney cartoon is enough to make the stomach turn. I mean, all that cuteness and black-and-white perspective on right and wrong – what’s not to hate? Okay, so maybe it’s just me. Still, there are plenty of us out there that wouldn’t mind seeing something a little more realistic, even in a fantasy tale such as Snow White. Enter Disney’s new take on the tale. Maleficent brings us a new story, one that puts the villainess in the spotlight. And now there’s a featurette to introduce you a bit to what we can expect from this flick. (more…)

‘The Hobbit: There And Back Again’ Might Be Getting A Title Change

- 04-17-14Film Posted by Brandon Marcus

Hobbit

The Hobbit: There And Back Again is a fine title for the third and final installment of Peter Jackson’s trilogy. It’s taken from the book, it’s catchy and suggests the film is the last chapter in the tale.

Good as it may be, it might not be the title Warner Bros. sticks with.

Zack Snyder Talks About the Creative Process & Screen Testing the Trinity

I know. Marvel’s kicking DC’s @$$, Warners is grapsing desperately to catch up, Zack Snyder is a hollow, talentless hack; all the talking points for why Man of Steel 2 (AKA: Batman Vs Superman) will be handing its lunch money to Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016. But let’s put all that aside for the moment and talk about expectations. Not yours or mine, but the director’s. Snyder is talking about his own ideas, how he struck upon the notion that led to the movie known to all Batman Vs Superman, and he’s also talking about those initial screen tests for the costumes on the holy trinity: Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. (Sadly, the above image is as close as you’ll get to seeing it for yourself… For nooooooowwwwwwww…) (more…)

Robin Williams to Return for ‘Mrs. Doubtfire 2′, Hopefully With New Children to Care For

I’m not really sure how this is going to work (yet I really can’t wait to see them try), but there’s now a Mrs. Doubtfire 2 in the works, despite the fact that it has been twenty years since Chris Columbus’ initial film hit theaters. Robin Williams (who co-produced the first) is returning to star in the film, more than likely hoping to replicate the original’s $440 million worldwide box office take. Since the children are now all grown, I can only hope that this somehow becomes Williams and Columbus’ White Madea series, if only for the potential of a Tyler Perry crossover.

A race war led by two weird dudes in old lady drag? The possibilities seem endless.

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ News – ‘X-Men: DOFP’ After Credits Scene and More Info on Movie #3

Today we have some Amazing Spider-Man 2 news that actually has NOTHING to do  with marketing spam (well, not directly)! I know, I can’t believe it either. But with the  movie coming up in just a few weeks, I guess they feel comfortable enough with what  they’ve put out there thus far? Anyways, the new information is regarding a couple of  interesting things. The first is that, oddly enough, Amazing Spider-Man 2 will feature no TASM after-credits scene, but it will feature a clip from the upcoming X-Men: Days  of Future Past. The other, more sane-sounding bit of news is that some folks are finally talking about what we might see in Amazing Spider-Man 3. Scroll down for all the juicy  info. (more…)

XMen3-51R

You might have missed it when, late last night, the last X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer hit the Internet. I have to admit I missed it, but then again, I never stay on a trailer once the credits start to roll. That’s where one eagle eyed fan saw Anna Paquin‘s name. Wait… didn’t director Bryan Singer say she was cut out of the movie? (more…)
