Transformers: The Last Knight sort of came and went at the box office earlier this summer, and has barely made $500 million at the worldwide box office, or about half as much as Transformers: Age of Extinction made during its run in 2014. That’s probably not a good place to be as you’re looking to expand your film franchise into spin-off movies, but time marches on, and so does the first of planned Transformers cinematic universe in the form of Bumblebee. Based on the yellow sports car that’s been a main character in all the Transformers movies so far, the stage is set for “Bee” to ride solo, and in a familiar form. (more…)

It took the folks responsible for The Simpsons 17 years to put out a film based on their hit property and it has been a decade since that film first came out. Talks of a sequel have been going on since that first film was released and it seems the yellow family of prime time just might be making a return to the silver screen and another seven years of waiting might not be in the cards.

Earlier this year, back when Ben Affleck was going to write, direct, produce and star in the next live-action Batman movie, not much was known about the details of the project, but it was revealed that Joe Manganiello was going to co-star as the main villain, Deathstroke the Terminator. All bets were off though once Affleck stepped away from the director’s chair, and Matt Reeves took over. Since then, it’s been announced that Reeves has thrown out Affleck’s script, and is going to be his own thing, which has made fans wonder if “his own thing” included Deathstroke? Well, there may now be some insight. (more…)

The 2017 Academy Awards ceremony is still about seven months away. Between now and then, a great many potential Oscar nominees will be released, and while many of them will have successful campaigns and be rewarded with several nominations, a few will make the honorific, though infamous, Oscar snub list. Long story short, there’s a lot of competition out there, which may be why Warner Bros. is starting early. The surprising part though is that the movie Warner Bros. is lifting up for Oscar glory is their summer blockbuster hit, Wonder Woman. For what use is breaking the superhero glass ceiling if you don’t get awarded for it.  (more…)

Fresh off the news that Michelle Pfeiffer will be playing Janet Van Dyne in Marvel/Disney’s upcoming Ant-Man sequel Ant-Man And The Wasp, we have learned that Judy Greer will return to reprise her role in the sequel. Greer played Scott Lang’s ex-wife, Maggie Lang, so her return indicates there will still be some family drama for our hero moving forward.

Now not all clowns are creepy, but unless you’re Bozo or Ronald McDonald the scale tends to lean towards creepy. This new trailer for Stephen King‘s IT certainly isn’t helping as it takes the creepy clown to the next level, the truly horrifying level of Pennywise. Director Andrés Muschietti has delivered a trailer that should delight horror fans. Check it out below. (more…)

Ghost in the Shell was supposed to be a promising beginning to a slew of glossy, high-profile remakes of great anime classics, but before it was even released, it was doomed to failure. The “white washing” controversy concerning the casting of Scarlett Johansson sabotaged the film amongst even those who had never heard of the original anime Ghost, and combined with the negative reviews, there was almost no way that Ghost in the Shell was going to be even a borderline success. So considering all it demerits, why not give up and just make an honest trailer out of it?  (more…)

It seems that things are movie quickly for the next James Bond movie, the 25th in the long running British spy series. It was announced the other day that the new Bond movie will be in theatres everywhere in November 2019, and that’s without a director, writer, cast, or even a star, since present Bond Daniel Craig is still a big ole question mark in regards to his participation. But today we take another step closer as a short list of potential directors has been leaked, and it’s a pretty compelling list.  (more…)
