Shane Black To Resurrect Remo Williams 'The Destroyer'
Unless you were reading pulp novels in the '70s or watching cheesy Fred Ward movies in the '80s, you may not know the name Remo Williams. Star of The Destroyer series, he was a hard boiled cop framed for murder whose botched execution nets him a job with a secret government agency that fights America's more obscure threats, including everything from cyborgs to ninjas to Rasputin. So who better to resurrect a hard boiled cop who fights terrorists and robots than Lethal Weapon writer and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director Shane Black?
Black has been attached to a few high profile projects since Iron Man 3, so The Destroyer joins Predator and Doc Savage in the list of movies we hope are made as quickly as possible. And while we don't know where this one fits in the... Read More
'Deathly Hallows' Director Heading Back To 'Harry Potter' For 'Fantastic Beasts'
David Yates has spent pretty much his entire feature film directing career in the world of Harry Potter. He joined the franchise in 2007 with Order of the Phoenix and directed the next four movies, wrapping up everything with Deathly Hallows: Part 2. So it's safe to say the man loves the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter.
And now he's going back to it.
THR has just revealed that Yates is in negotiations to direct the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. This will be the first Potter-related screenplay that's actually written by creator J.K. Rowling, and the whole thing takes place some 70 years prior to Voldemort failing to murder a young boy, leaving him with a lightning bolt scar on his forehead. It follows the adventures of...

Full MondoCon Details Promise a Ridiculous, One-Of-A-Kind Event For Movie Art Fans
Mondo has completely changed the game for boutique movie art over the last few years. It started as just a little shop inside the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX. Then they started creating posters for special screenings at the theater. Those gave way to online sales. Those started selling out faster and faster. Meanwhile, Mondo was bringing tons of exclusive goods directly to the fans at Comic-Con, they opened their own art gallery in Austin, and they branched out from art to music, giving old (and new) movie scores a renewed life on vinyl.
And now all of that hard work has culminated in their very own convention. It's called MondoCon and will be held in Austin, TX during the first weekend of Fantastic Fest (September 20-21). But this isn't just a big market for fans... Read More
Watch: Early 'Looper' Concept Video Features Brad Pitt and 'Blade Runner'
It’s not unusual for filmmakers to make proof-of-concept videos to help sell Hollywood executives on their projects. Since film is a visual medium, it’s beneficial to be able to present a vision of what a multimillion-dollar project will look like long before anyone actually spends those huge amounts of money to make it. It also really helps if you’re pitching a high-concept idea that can’t be adequately summed up in a logline.
Filmmaker Rian Johnson understood this, and he shot this awesome proof-of-concept video for his time-travel film Looper. What’s really amazing about this is how closely the tone of the concept video matches the one found in the finished film, even though it's using footage from other sources. Johnson uses animation and... Read More
Watch: Aliens and Predators Battle in the Comic Book Trailer for 'Prometheus: Fire and Stone'
It seems highly unlikely that a lot of movie fans are clamoring for another Alien vs. Predator film, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t more stories to tell in what should be one of the coolest crossover universes in the entire world. The newest battle won’t take place on the silver screen, though – it will be waged in the pages of an original comic series from Dark Horse Comics.
The company has revealed an official teaser trailer for the September 10 debut of Prometheus: Fire and Stone – an original story that will find Predators and Xenomorphs clashing in the world forged by Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.
Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra’s follows a new crew seeking answers to what happened to the Prometheus team. Naturally, they’re... Read More
Movie News: Bryan Singer Shares 'X-Men' Tattoo; Watch Antonio Banderas in Superb Trailer for Sci-fi Thriller 'Automata'
X-Men: Days of Future Past: Back on June 20, director Bryan Singer noted via social media that he and writer Simon Kinberg had agreed that if X-Men: Days of Future Past made more than $700 million at the box office worldwide, they'd each get their first tattooes. The film has now passed that mark, and so Singer kept his word, bringing along Patrick Stewart as a witness. [Instagram]
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter: Milla Jovovich is pregnant! Now, that's not usually news that we cover here, but in this case, the actress says that she received confirmation just as she and her husband, director Paul W.S. Anderson, were preparing to travel to South Africa to work on their latest collaboration, the zombie sequel Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. As she wrote... Read More
The Geek Beat: 'Star Wars' Rumors, 'Spider-Man' Buzz and About That 'Ninja Turtles' Movie
It seems like the last few weeks have had more news than usual from the geekier side of Hollywood. Not only have there been multiple comic book movies arriving in theaters in short order, but we've had studios announce some far-reaching plans for their cinematic universes, a few high-profile project and casting announcements, and even a few peeks behind the curtain – both official and unofficial – at one of the most anticipated movies on the horizon.
In short, if you're the sort who enjoys – or is professionally obligated to be – keeping up with all of this stuff, it's been a pretty crazy time to be a geek.
With that in mind, it seemed like a good opportunity to run through some of the recent news and offer up some of my own thoughts about... Read More
New on DVD/Blu-ray: It's a Great Week to Like Genre Movies
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Sony - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD
Director: Marc Webb
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper. Full cast + crew
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is certainly the biggest punching bag of this year's superhero movies. It's silly, it's simple and it's glossy. And while I'd never argue that it's better than Captain America 2 or even X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's an acceptable, occasionally exceptional, overall enjoyable comic book movie that isn't afraid to be absurd.
There's a reason younger crowds will embrace this more than adults, because it is indeed that much closer to a Saturday-morning-cartoon vibe, but for the grown-ups out there, there... Read More
Comics on Film: Walking Back Through 'Sin City' Before This Weekend's Sequel
The original Sin City, released in 2005 with an all-star cast featuring the likes of Bruce Willis, Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Mickey Rourke and Benicio Del Toro, was largely positively received and a box office success. On a relatively small $40 million budget, the film managed to take in nearly $160 million when its theatrical run was all said and done. With talk of a sequel having loomed for years, it's finally coming this weekend in the form of Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and looks to be just as unique, if not more ambitious than the original.
The Original's Unique Formula
When the original Sin City was released, director Robert Rodriguez would attempt to distance himself from characterizing... Read More
