New Warriors TV Series / Squirrel Girl

Despite the passionate interest of fans, filmmakers, and movie star alike, Marvel Studios has yet to announce a Squirrel Girl movie and probably never will. But Doreen Green’s never been one to give up easily, and now she may have found a different way to slip into the MCU. Marvel and ABC Studios are reportedly developing New Warriors, a half-hour comedy series that puts the spotlight on some of Marvel’s younger, lesser-known heroes, including — you guessed it — the unbeatable Squirrel Girl.  Read More »

The Last Detail sequel

Here’s a sequel you probably didn’t expect to read about anytime soon, even though we first heard about this sequel a decade ago. In 2006, Richard Linklater revealed he wrote an adaption of Darryl Ponicsan‘s Last Flag Flying — a sequel to The Last Detail, which director Hal Ashby and screenwriter Robert Towne adapted into an incredible film in 1973. Linklater’s goal was to bring the original cast back, but Randy Quaid would only return if Jack Nicholson did, and unfortunately Otis Young passed away in 2001.

So Linklater is now instead now making a “sort of” sequel, possibly starring Bryan CranstonSteve Carell, and Laurence Fishburne. Below, learn more about The Last Detail sequel.

sci-fi spartacus

Whether you’ve seen the Stanley Kubrick classic or Starz’s (shockingly good) television series, or have just cracked a history book or two in your day, you’re probably familiar with the basics of the Spartacus story: gladiator defies Roman empire, leads a massive rebellion, etc. The details always get fudged around, but the basic beats tend to remain consistent.

And it’s easy to imagine the basic shape of this story remaining intact as it makes a transition to science fiction, because Taken 2 and Taken 3 director Olivier Megaton is making that movie. In space, no one can hear you scream “I am Spartacus!”

Doctor Strange - Chiwetel Ejiofor

Never one to pass up an opportunity for cross-promotion, Marvel Studios is using the home video release of Captain America: Civil War to plug some of its other upcoming titles. We already got to check in with the cast and crew of Thor: Ragnarok via a hilarious video revealing what the God of Thunder was up to during Steve and Tony’s falling out, and today Doctor Strange gets its turn in the spotlight.

A new Doctor Strange sneak peak has arrived as a bonus feature on the Civil War Blu-ray. The featurette offers new insight into two of the film’s key characters, the complicated Baron Mordo (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor) and the mysterious Kaecilius (played by Mads Mikkelsen). And as if that weren’t intriguing enough, the video also includes some dazzling concept art.  Read More »
