Another week, another installment in the Ghostbusters reboot hot mess. Fans of the original outing have been up in arms regarding the reboot almost since it’s first mention. Things only got worse for the movie when a trailer appeared a few months ago – and has now become the most disliked trailer on YouTube – and appeared to muddy the waters on the “reboot” stance, or Stanz if you will. Director Paul Feig has maintained that his movie is a separate entity from the original, a true reboot; however the ill fated trailer opens with a mention of 30 years after historic events in New York City. So rumors have been building is it or isn’t it a reboot? Melissa McCarthy recently clarified this in her own straight shooting way. (more…)
Remember those halcyon days where the Sega Genesis and Mega Drive were the pinnacle of video gaming? Side scrollers like Golden Axe and Streets Of Rage were all people could talk about and Shinobi very quickly became a household name. The ninja whose arsenal consisted of shuriken and magical ninjitsu powers took the world by storm. Since it’s first release in 1987 Shinobi has had many reboots, without any true successes. That could all change very soon though, not as a video game but as a feature length film. Under the watchful eye of SEGA, Stories International Inc. is teaming up with Marc Platt Productions to create an all new Shinobi film. (more…)

TFA left plenty of questions and mysteries to chew on and if a recent Reddit poster happens to have the goods that he/she claims, well, fans may have plenty more once the final scene of Episode VIII has played out.

Whether you liked it or not (chances are NOT), Batman v. Superman was a thing that happened and for better or worse, the film did serve its purpose: it served as a launching point for the DCEU. Fans are eager to see exactly what that universe will have to offer and their next glimpse of that world comes in the form of David Ayers’ Suicide Squad. Since the first trailer hit for the bad-guy led film back at San Diego Comic-Con, fans cannot get enough and they are positively ready to see just what the movie will offer. Well, according to the folks over at BirthMoviesDeath, it seems that one thing that the movie did not offer was a bit of levity. If their sources are correct, the film’s bleakness may have even just necessitated reshoots, a few months before the release. (more…)

But now we finally have name for the project, as well as some killer concept art, courtesy of Empire Magazine. While the original was surprisingly good and surpassed the expectations of many, the sequel has a lot to live up to. If the concept art is anything to judge by, though, the movie might just stand up to the test. (more…)
