Head for High Ground: 'Tremors' Is Being Rebooted
If you grew up in the ‘90s and loved cult monster movies, then you undoubtedly have a warm spot in your heart for Tremors – and Universal is hoping to cash in on that nostalgia by rebooting the franchise with Don Michael Paul taking a seat behind the camera. The original 1990 film featured Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward as a couple of guys in a small desert town who find themselves under attack by giant earthworms. It’s a film with the perfect mix of action and comedy – and it also featured some really cool monsters. Unfortunately, the subsequent three sequels got less and less interesting. So, if ever there was a property that was ripe for a reboot, Tremors is it. An updated script and cast could breathe new life into this beloved franchise. Our only concern is...

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Is Back On For a 2017 Release
How long can we stretch a Pirates of Caribbean title? This long, apparently: Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (in theaters July 7, 2017). Walt Disney Pictures just announced that the beloved (verbose) franchise, starring Johnny Depp as the kohl-rimmed, eccentric pirate-clown, will only be delayed (as previously announced) a few years due to script rewrites. The fifth installment in the series will (if rumors are true) find Jack and company in search of The Trident, battling the villainous Captain Brand (a ghost) for control of the valuable spear. Brand blames Jack for his death, as Sparrow turned Brand’s brother Eric into a pirate, eventually leading to the specter's demise. And it wouldn’t be a Pirates movie without a love subplot. Jack becomes...

Watch: That Time Ryan Gosling Played Hercules
Before he was making men wear leather jackets they have no business wearing, and women wish their men could just be him instead, and men wishing they could also just be him instead, Ryan Gosling was a fresh-faced kid who had graduated from the Mickey Mouse Club to appear in random episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Goosebumps and Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. But when he was 18 all his dreams came true and he finally landed his very own show. It was called Young Hercules, and it was a goofy prequel to the popular adult series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. In it, Gosling played the man who would eventually grow up to become Kevin Sorbo. Yep, this kid obviously grew up to look exactly like this guy: The show only lasted one season, but since this was the '90s...

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay Will Run Wild with a Reboot of 'Manimal'
If you needed more proof that Hollywood is out of ideas and will reboot absolutely anything at this point, allow us to present exhibit number 463,321: Manimal. If you had a life during an eight-week period in 1983, you may well have missed out on NBC’s Manimal, a show widely regarded as one of the worst in history. Simon MacCorkindale starred as a rich playboy who solved crimes with his ability to morph into any animal he wanted – a skill bestowed upon him by some African tribe. It was every bit as (wonderfully) terrible as it sounds – which means Hollywood is totally up for rebooting it. News broke last night that Sony Pictures Animation has teamed up with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions and Jimmy Miller’s Mosaic to create a...

Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood Join J.J. Abrams' 'Westworld'
Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood will star in the pilot episode of Westworld, based on the 1973 movie starring Yul Brynner, Richard Benjamin and James Brolin. J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan are serving as executive producers for the proposed HBO series. Nolan, who has cowritten The Prestige, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar with his brother, director Christopher Nolan, also created the successful TV show Person of Interest. He has written the script for the Westworld pilot with his wife, Lisa Joy, herself a TV veteran (Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice) and will direct the episode. Novelist Michael Crichton made his feature film debut as a writer and director with the original movie, which was set in an elaborate theme park for adults that featured three...

The Geek Beat: Five Great, Geeky Moments from Modern Comic-Con History
While pondering potential subjects for this week, I couldn't help noticing that this is the 52nd edition of the column that I've authored. That's a full year of weekly nerdery by my count, and it all began on July 23, 2013, with a roundup of the biggest hits, misses and lingering questions from the that year's San Diego Comic-Con. With this year's convention kicking off in just a few days, it seems appropriate to bring the column back around to where it all began, and devote this week's installment to the massive, multi-headed, all-devouring beast known as Comic-Con International. After all, with more than 130,000 people expected to attend this year's event, and every major movie studio, television network, game developer and publisher scrambling...

Your Top Three: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Movies
Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. This could be a very big week for Dwayne Johnson, aka the Rock. He's starring in the latest (since January) version of Hercules, which opens Friday, and he's expected to be (officially) announced at Comic-Con as star of a DC superhero movie, probably playing Shazam, aka Captain Marvel. After 15 years of acting -- outside of the performances involved in being a professional wrestler, that is -- he's not always taken that seriously as a movie star. A good-luck charm for movie franchises, maybe, but ever since his weird-looking CGI feature film debut in The Mummy Returns, he's had his ups and downs as far as respectability. Part of this is because for...

'Noah' Behind-the-Scenes Clip Throws Russell Crowe to the Ground
Noah is a stunning piece of filmmaking. Of course, that's to be expected when it comes to a movie about the construction of a giant ark intended to survive an apocalyptic flood, but Darren Aronofsky pushes his movie far beyond your standard biblical epic and turns it into a transcendent, engrossing spectacle. Seriously, there are just some downright gobsmacking visuals in this movie, with many of them coming before the big flood even happens. Noah is currently available on Digital HD and will hit Blu-ray, DVD and VOD on July 29. And on that Blu-ray you'll find a number of special features that dive into the making of the movie, including this snippet below that shows off some of the stunt work that yanked Russell Crowe and Ray Winstone around a very real, very large set...

See What Big Upcoming Movies Are Premiering at the Toronto Film Festival
    The Toronto International Film Festival unveiled the first wave of its lineup this morning. Noah Baumbach, Mike Leigh, David Gordon Green, Jason Reitman, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg, Antoine Fuqua, Edward Zwick, Mikael Roskam and David Dobkin are just a few of the directors we’re anticipating work from. An opening film hasn’t been announced yet, so we still have something to look forward to, but Alan Rickman’s second directorial effort, A Little Chaos, starring Kate Winslet as a female architect in the court of King Louis XIV, will close the festival.  The tragic story of Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz, Foxcatcher, which saw tons of buzz at Cannes, is part of the Gala repertoire, but we’re still wondering if...
