While Ben Affleck will be doing appearances and press for Warner Bros. Justice League this weekend, word is making the Internet rounds that the powers that be at WB are planning on gracefully recasting Affleck from the role for future movies. Now this isn’t to say that Affleck might still don the cowl for one more movie after Justice League, but going forward Warner Bros. is most likely already looking for another actor. (more…)

Ivan Reitman Teases New Ghostbusters Film in 2019 During San Diego Comic-Con Panel

Ghostbusters fans always seem to be on a bit of an emotional roller coaster when it comes to news about the franchise preparing to mount another comeback, I know this because I am one. For every The Real Ghostbusters we get, an Extreme Ghostbusters comes along.  I would mention the 2016 Paul Feig directed film but I fear for many it is still a touchy subject. Projects  suddenly appear and then fade out like an ethereal phantom in the wind… ectoplasm in rain… *dramatic pause*

Well fans, please remember to keep your hands inside the cart at all times ’cause this roller coaster is about to get going all over agian. Director of the original two films (and producer of the 2016 reboot,) Ivan Reitman,  teased a few Ghostbusters related tidbits at San Diego Comic-Con this year, (more…)

It’s not on the official schedule, but there may be some major comic book movie news breaking at San Diego Comic Con later today. In fact, Todd McFarlane promised it. After talking around it for oh so many years, it seems there’s finally some forward momentum on the new Spawn movie. Based on the comic book that McFarlane launched in 1992, getting a new Spawn flick out into the world is something that the fan favourite comic creator has been trying to do for over 10 years, and with an announcement pending, it seems that he may actually get it done yet.

There are many things that are not good about the three Fantastic Four movies that have been released so far, but one of the most consistent has been the portrayal of the team’s classic nemesis Doctor Doom. Portrayed by Julian McMahon in the two Tim Story films, and by Toby Kebbell in Josh Trank’s disastrous remake, the cinematic version of Doom has not been befitting of the man who’s basically the Lex Luthor of the Marvel Universe! (As in everyone has a beef with him.) If you love Comic Con surprises, good news, a high-profile writer is going to finally give Doom some much needed love in his own solo film.  (more…)

Christopher Nolan‘s new movie Dunkirk opens tonight in a theatre near you, which is exactly how the director likes it, thank you very much. Nolan has crushed it with large format exhibitions of his films from The Dark Knight to Inception to Interstellar, and with the help of a few others in Hollywood, Nolan is trying to keep actual film, as a medium, alive and kicking. So when you sit down and ask Nolan about the possibility of working with a streaming site like Netflix in the future, like David Ayer and Martin Scorsese already have, you can probably imagine what he had to say.  (more…)

Director David Ayer and screenwriter Max Landis have combined their talents to set up an interesting concept: What if modern day Los Angeles was a Dungeons & Dragons world where elves, goblins, orcs, fairies, and other magical creatures lived side-by-side with humans, what would that look like? The answer is Bright, a high-concept, big budget action fantasy coming out in time for Christmas, like these things usually do. The difference this time is that Bright is launching on Netflix, but despite that, the new trailer reveals that no expense was spared for this streaming video effort.  (more…)

Warner Bros. has confirmed today that their next film to be shot for the DC Extended Universe will be none other than Shazam! Let’s not forget that Justice League is currently wrapping up its post-production while Aquaman is still filming so we won’t be seeing an adaptation of Shazam! on the screen just yet. The film is currently scheduled for a release in 2019.

Oh, how we have suffered in the last seven years without a new Saw movie in our local multiplexes at Halloween. Of course, when we say “suffer” we don’t mean it in the same way that Jigsaw’s victims have suffered, and it could be argued that we haven’t suffered because watching people suffer isn’t really meant to be enjoyable. In other words, if you’ve been looking forward to more Saw, you’re sick. So here’s your trailer for the next chapter, Jigsaw, coming this Halloween.  (more…)

Some ideas are just too good to let happen once, like Hamlet or Spider-Man. In 1954, Jack Finney published a science fiction novel called The Body Snatchers, which was about a small town in California that is inundated by “space seeds” that take sleeping humans and replace them with a near exact duplicate. These duplicates are physically near perfect, but on the inside everything is wrong. The metaphor works on so many different levels, which is why Hollywood can never leave well enough alone, and again, The Body Snatchers is about to become a major motion picture again.  (more…)
