What News Do You Hope Is Announced at Comic-Con?
Another Comic-Con is nearly upon us, and with it we're sure to hear a lot of news about the most highly anticipated movies and TV series of the next few years. Maybe some that we don't even know are in the works yet. These aren't just superhero blockbusters and shows based on comic books, either. Maybe this won't be the setting for more Star Wars announcements, but there are plenty of other projects that the studios are ready to parade for the fans -- in Hall H and elsewhere around the San Diego Convention Center floor. First of all there are those things we thing we already know that we hope are confirmed. Is the Rock really going to play Shazam in a 2016 release, and will he also be part of the Justice League movie megafranchise? What exactly are the unrevealed...

Comics on Film: Will Comic Book Movies Burn Out Soon? Have They Already?
As we sit on the cusp of the most anticipated weekend of the year for many comics and movie fans, there are a lot of details that we actually already know about the future of the comic book movie for the next several years. Recently, Marvel Studios announced release dates for several untitled films on up through 2019, and rumors continue to persist about Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment readying a slew of DC Comics-related films to match their already impressive lineup of forthcoming TV programs. While many fans see these things as new projects to look forward to, some fans are becoming vocal about worries of dreaded oversaturation. The idea isn't without merit. When one kind of product floods a marketplace, it tends to devalue all of the other...

Jeremy Saulnier on the Most Challenging Scene to Shoot for 'Blue Ruin'
In this monthly column we spotlight new Blu-ray/DVD releases by interviewing directors about the scenes that stood out most for them while making their movies. This month, we talk to Jeremy Saulnier about his breakout thriller Blue Ruin. One of the standout indie films of 2014, Jeremy Saulnier’s slow-burn thriller Blue Ruin has transformed him and his friend and lead actor Macon Blair from unknowns to hot commodities. The film is a stone-cold revenge tale with Blair playing Dwight, a drifter whom we meet at the start of the film living a simple existence out of his car. Haunted by the murder of his parents, he launches a bloody act of vengeance following the release of the man who killed them. In one of the movie’s most tense moments, Dwight goes to his...

New on DVD/Blu-ray: 'Transcendence,' 'Dom Hemingway,' 'Sabotage' and More
Blue Ruin - Radius-TWC - Blu-ray and DVD Director: Jeremy Saulnier Cast: Macon Blair, Amy Hargreaves, Bonnie Johnson, Sidné Anderson, Devin Ratray. Full cast + crew This week one of our favorite movies of 2014 hits home video. It's called Blue Ruin, and it's about a lonely man (the superb Macon Blair) who is given the opportunity to punish the man who wronged him years ago, only to realize that there is no such thing as a simple murder. That may sound like the premise for your typical revenge thriller, but trust us when we say Blue Ruin is far from your typical indie revenge thriller. Read our interview with Macon Blair and Jeremy Saulnier here.   Other Notable New Releases BD, DVD...

Edgar Wright's Got a Plan for What He'll Direct Instead of 'Ant-Man'
Earlier this year, Edgar Wright left Marvel’s Ant-Man after creative differences — and a collective groan was heard from nerds the world over. But the fan-favorite director has already chosen his next project, which should please the geek elite at Comic-Con this week. According to Deadline, Wright will be filming Baby Driver. The website reports: “The project, which Wright wrote, is described to me as a collision of crime, action, music and sound. That sounds like a close cousin to the Cornetto Trilogy of films that Wright did at Working Title, but at this point at least, it doesn’t appear that Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are part of this." Where Wright goes, Pegg and Frost aren’t generally far behind (World’s End, Hot Fuzz and Shaun of...

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 were 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...

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Is Back on for a 2017 Release
How long can we stretch a Pirates of the Caribbean title? This long, apparently: Pirates of the 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...

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...
