It’s hard to think go a more cinematic novel primed for a visual feast of a movie than Ready Player One. Ernest Cline‘s ode to gaming, nostalgia and possibly every pop culture reference from the 1980s has long been anticipated, and with none other than Steven Spielberg directing this is easily one of the biggest movies coming down the pipe in the next year. More than than, a legion of fans of Cline’s novel are eager to make sure that no one screws up the transfer, not even a master like Spielberg. So you tell us, has Spielberg screwed it up? (more…)
Warner Bros. Animation has revealed today at San Diego Comic Con their plans for three upcoming films to take place in the DC Animated Universe and one of them will be a two-parter! The first to come out of the studio will be a Batman film followed by a new rendition of the Death and Rebirth of Superman (split into two films). Fans may recall that DC Animated and Warner Bros. already tackled the Death of Superman in their 2007 adaptation, Superman: Doomsday, but left a lot out given the 75-minute limitation of the medium. Now, that story will be told in its entirety as two separate films.

They say these things come in threes. Last weekend, we lost zombie creator George A. Romero and celebrated actor Martin Landau, and now they’re joined in the afterlife by John Heard. Although most people will remember Heard as just the oblivious dad from Home Alone, and Home Alone 2, he was a very accomplished actor whose screen worked spanned five decades. (more…)
When it was announced that Ridley Scott was returning back to the film that made him a household name, and perfectly merged sci-fi and horror together into something original, fans were very excited. After all, Alien was a cult classic, it was terrifying, gave us a great female hero, and oh yeah, it was terrifying. Fast forward 33 years, we got the Alien prequel Prometheus, which gave us a semi-origin to how everything started (or so we thought), going in a different direction and concentrated on the supposed creators of the Xenomorph, the Engineers. Although it was divisive, Prometheus was successful, earning more than $400 million worldwide. So, it’s no surprise that Scott would make a sequel to the prequel: Alien: Covenant.
If you had any hopes of The Gifted crossing over with other X-Men related titles, you can stop. At least for now, any possibility of crossovers were shut down during Friday’s panel at San Diego Comic Con. However, it wasn’t all bad news as fans were treated to an extended trailer for the new series. In the trailer, fans will finally get names with the faces they’ve been seeing, as well as better demonstrations of the powers that will be featured on the show. For a look at the extended trailer, as well as more news from SDCC 2017, make the jump.
To recap, it was announced back in May that Justice League director Zack Snyder was stepping away from the film in order to take care of himself and his family after a personal tragedy. In his stead, Avengers filmmaker Joss Whedon was going to carry the ball down field to the end zone, but with the caveat that he was going to be handling some pre-planned reshoots that he was already preparing with Snyder before his departure. In other words, Whedon would be honouring Snyder’s style and choices in finishing the film. But what if that isn’t really the case? (more…)
