rampage

Dwayne Johnson has his hands in so many pies these days he might as well be a Strawberry Shortcake villain. Seriously, how can anyone keep track of them all? One could hardly be blamed if it slipped their memory that one of Johnson’s many upcoming projects is Rampage, an adaptation of classic arcade game about monsters destroying cities. Johnson will be teaming up with his San Andreas director Brad Peyton to bring the mayhem to life, and what tremendous mayhem it will be. It’s not yet certain when we’ll see the movie, but Peyton wants you to know that this will be a Rampage of love. (more…)

backtothefuture

Last year was 2015, the furthest point in the future that our time travel friends from Back to the Future journeyed to in the epic trilogy. It’s enough to make you think about the possibility of a reboot. Think about it! What a great homage would it be to remake Back to the Future? Set it today with a new Marty McFly going back to the 80s and meeting his parents then, in the era the original movie is set in. It’s an idea, admittedly, that’s not likely to fly, especially with the producer of the original movie series. In fact, the phrase, “Over my dead body” comes to mind. (more…)

It’s only been running since 2015, but this year it has received over 450 entries worldwide. It has tempted swarms of amateur, student and professional filmmakers from all over the globe to crawl out of the woodwork in a bid to terrify us, and is curated by some of the scariest minds in horror cinema. The 15 Second Horror Film Challenge is a wonderfully fascinating example of what the darkest, most twisted and creative storytellers can achieve in only, well, 15 seconds. (more…)

dark-crystal

The sequel to the 1982 Puppet-fueled fantasy classic The Dark Crystal is finally here! Not as a film as many had hoped for, but rather in the form of a 12-issue comic book series entitled The Power of The Dark Crystal, stemming from the un-produced screenplay by David Odell, Annette Odell, and Craig Pierce. The comic itself will be brought to us by Boom! Studios and Henson Company

If you were a child of the 80’s then Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal was a quintessential part of your filmic fantasy movie going life! If you were not a child of the 80’s then stop making the rest of us feel old and immediately go ask your parents to show you this classic piece of puppet history. Now that we’re all on board, let’s talk about the upcoming sequel.  (more…)

deathstar

Suppose you’re not the usual Star Wars fan. Suppose that it’s not just your intention to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it’s not just your intention to see it opening weekend, or even opening night. Suppose that you might consider seeing it not just once or twice, but 10, maybe even 20 times. If this sounds like you, then Regal Cinemas may have a deal that’s worth your interest. For $100 you can get an all access pass to Rogue One for 12 weeks at a Regal Cinema near you. Any format, any time! All you need is a Regal Ultimate Ticket.  (more…)

Amongst the army of swirling rumours about the future shape of Disney’s Star Wars Universe, few have been more intriguing than the prospect of a spin-off trilogy focussing on the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series, it was said, would take place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. It would chronicle the journey of the young Jedi Knight as he picks through the wreckage of a collapsing Republic, eventually choosing his hermetic existence Tatooine. Disney never commented on the truth of these claims, although our slim hopes were encouraged by Ewan Macgregor’s apparent willingness to reprise his role. Today we got another hint about when we might next see Obi Wan, and it could be sooner than we thought.

wong_jurassicworld

In the whole of the first three Jurassic Park movies, there was one man that the production of Jurassic World depended on to be their through line from the earlier films to the new entry in the franchise. When in doubt, you call Wong. B.D. Wong! The talented character actor appeared as Dr. Henry Wu in the original Jurassic Park, and reprised the part of Jurassic World, and since Wu escaped unscathed, fans have been asking the question: Will Wong, and Wu, be appearing in the forthcoming sequel directed by J.A. Bayona? Jurassic World 2‘s producer seems to think so! (more…)

It looks like Kevin Smith is once again making headlines, and this time it’s not because of his involvement in The Flash and Supergirl. Smith is making noise again because of expressed interest in making his once Superman Lives script into an animated movie to join the ranks of Justice League: Flashpoint and All-Star Superman. In addition to that, the Clerks director also said that a movie like Bedknobs And Broomsticks could be remade and that he would be interested in directing such a film.
