It can’t be easy to lose a dream role like playing a young Han Solo in his own pre-Star Wars adventure to be directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, but so far as consolation prizes go, getting to lead a new Dungeons and Dragons movie isn’t terrible. The movie maybe terrible, that is to say, but the idea is not. Ansel Elgort, star of The Fault in Our Stars and the Divergent series, was on the short list for a solo Solo, but now he’ll just have to settle on leading the cast of an all new movie based on the beloved role-playing game.

Transformers has had some serious criticism thrown its way since the first film was released back in 2007. This hasn’t stopped director Michael Bay developing more movies involving the ongoing battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons. When the title was announced for Transformer 5 (The Last Knight) audiences were also reintroduced to the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime in a very short teaser video, with Prime’s face followed by the title.

Hey, remember when Alice in Wonderland made a billion dollars at the box office? The year 2010 were simpler days as Alice, riding on the 3-D coattails of Avatar just needed to be in that third dimension to make money, and that’s all the movie seemed to have going for it. It’s interesting considering the recent discussion of Avatar’s culture relevance, or lack thereof, that the movie that followed in its footsteps so closely seems all but forgotten in the conversation. A billion dollars doesn’t mean what you used to, but it’s siren song is hard shake. Thus we now have Alice Through the Looking Glass, a logical follow-up to Wonderland if anything that happened here could be called logical. (more…)
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…)
