The Force Awakens was a pretty epic return to the world of Star Wars, and it’ll be interesting to see how Rian Johnson follows it up with Episode VIII. We’ve seen a few set photos (though nothing particularly revealing), but with the sequel not hitting theaters until December 2017, it’s going to be quite a while before we see anything substantial. While John Boyega isn’t at liberty to say too much about Episode VIII, he does offer a couple of pieces of info that should help you manage your expectations.
We’ve long been promised / threatened a sequel to Space Jam, and Warner Bros. is determined to follow through on that plan, recently tapping Furious 6 director Justin Lin to helm the project. But the director of the original film doesn’t think any of this is a good idea; in fact, he thinks WB should go ahead and pump the brakes on Space Jam 2 before it even takes off.
Despite an attempt to turn things around with a new showrunner in the middle of the first season, The Muppets hasn’t really caught on with audiences the way ABC had hoped. What once seemed like a surefire hit (it’s the Muppets!) turned into a bizarre experiment (it’s a meta-fake-documentary series!) before ultimately becoming an interesting failure (shrug emoji), at best. The short version: ABC has cancelled The Muppets after just one season.
It might be getting a little more difficult for Jumanji loyalists to remain skeptical of the reboot. As if the casting of Dwayne Johnson weren’t enough for you, today brings word that Jack Black is in talks to join the cast, while it appears that Johnson’s Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart has officially signed on. If you aren’t even remotely enticed by the prospect of watching those three get into shenanigans with an assortment of various jungle animals, then I don’t know what could possibly make you feel joy.
Judging by a trailer that seemingly reveals just about everything (including the bodies of its leads), Nerve takes the premise of indie thrillers like Cheap Thrills and the lesser-seen 13 Sins and re-frames it with the treacherous world of a little place called The Internet. With that particular distinction in mind, it shouldn’t surprise you that Nerve was helmed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the directing duo behind Catfish (the movie, not the TV show).
You really have no idea how loved a movie is until a studio announces plans to reboot it — such is the case with Jumanji, the 1995 film starring Robin Williams, which performed pretty well at the box office but didn’t leave a big impression on critics and (adult) audiences. But reactions to Dwayne Johnson’s new Jumanji movie offer a valuable lesson in the power of nostalgia, as fans have been quick to cry foul on the reboot. Johnson has heard you, and not only is he committed to making the best reboot possible, but he’s also found a “cool” way to honor the memory of Robin Williams.
After two phases of superhero films, Marvel’s filmmaking engine has become rather efficient, which is why you shouldn’t expect to see much in the way of deleted scenes when Captain America: Civil War eventually hits DVD and Blu-ray. Still, cuts are inevitable, and according to the directors and screenwriters, there are at least a couple of notable — if somewhat minor — moments that didn’t make the theatrical version.
It may be Mother’s Day, but Sony doesn’t want your dad to feel left out. The studio has released a teaser for the first Inferno trailer, along with a couple of posters offering a sneak peek at the finale to The Da Vinci Code trilogy. And it looks like the series is prepared to go out with a bang, as Tom Hanks is literally holding the fate of the world in his hands.
Following recent rumors that he had emerged as the front runner to play young Han Solo in the untitled Star Wars Story spinoff, Alden Ehrenreich has reportedly secured the role in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s upcoming film. The news comes one day after Star Wars Day, May 4, when Miller shared a photo featuring Han Solo’s famous blaster gun, which seemed to indicate that a casting announcement might be imminent.
Director Paul Feig has maintained that his new Ghostbusters movie isn’t a sequel or a remake, but a reboot. Basically, it ignores the fictional events and characters depicted in Ivan Reitman’s classic 1984 film — which makes the first trailer for Feig’s movie a bit confusing. If you count yourself among those who were baffled by the trailer, then you can rest easy with the knowledge that someone who is actually in the movie is also confused. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have any answers for you.
It’s not uncommon for trailers to feature scenes that never make it to theaters, or for specific scenes to look slightly different than they did in early teasers, owing to changes in visual FX during production. Such is the case with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while some of the scenes featured in the trailers weren’t included in the theatrical version, those deleted scenes are included on the new Blu-ray release. But there was one thing from the initial trailers that wasn’t restored: a reference to George Lucas’ prequels.
Just a couple of days ago, director Rian Johnson shared two new photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode 8, one of which featured a Resistance X-Wing and a mysterious pilot. Today brings another sneak peek from the set, this time offering an unofficial look at a much bigger, much more notable spacecraft — you know, just in case you were concerned, for whatever reason, that the Millennium Falcon might be sitting this one out.
