Vertigo movie slate

When Warner Bros. announced a ten-film slate of DC Comics films last week, taking the studio all the way to 2020, you might have noticed one big omission. There was no Sandman, which we know Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been developing over much of 2014. But worry not (or continue to worry, if you’re afraid of the film), as Sandman creator Neil Gaiman says things are still moving along, and that we can expect another announcement. In short, Sandman isn’t part of the DC movie slate, because it is part of the Vertigo movie slate.  Read More »

Conjuring 2 delayed

New Line had planned a Conjuring sequel for October 2015, but that plan has changed. Just weeks after the Conjuring spin-off Annabelle opened in the US, New Line has pulled The Conjuring 2 off the schedule. The studio will still use that date for horror, and will release a different, as-yet untitled horror movie on the old Conjuring 2 date. Could this have anything to do with the good reception for Annabelle, which technically exists in the same series, but was a lot cheaper to make?  Read More »

Cabin Fever remake

We’re far enough away from some of the big horror moments of the last decade that reboot time is coming around for some. Cabin Fever never really caught on as a franchise — Eli Roth‘s debut film made his career as a filmmaker, but the Cabin Fever films that followed have, er, struggled. (Ti West lobbied to have his name removed from the direct sequel after producers took control of the edit, and the prequel Patient Zero has had a low-key release.)

Now there’s a Cabin Fever remake brewing, which we heard about earlier this year. The new info is that Eli Roth is on board as exec producer. Even more weird than that is this fact: the remake will use the original script for the film, written by Roth and Randy Pearlstein. Read More »

‘Drive’ Gets a New Soundtrack for UK Broadcast

new Drive soundtrack

Part of the reason Nicolas Winding Refn‘s film Drive took on an unusual life was the film’s skillful use of music. Beyond the original electronic compositions from Cliff Martinez (The Knick, Only God Forgives), the heartbeat of the very quiet film was provided by pop and electronic songs from Kavinsky and Chromatics. Music was a more important aspect of Drive than is the case in many other films, and the movie probably wouldn’t have enjoyed the same cultural impact without those sounds.

So naturally, there’s a plan to re-score Drive with entirely different pop songs. This will be (for now) a one-time only broadcast in the UK. Get the info on the new Drive soundtrack below and see a trailer for the broadcast. Read More »

Good Dinosaur changes

There’s no new Pixar movie in 2014, but we’ll get two from the studio in 2015. June brings Pete Docter’s Inside Out (which you can read lots about here) and then, November 25, 2015, they’ll release The Good Dinosaur.

The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled to hit theaters in Summer 2014, but a change of directors and lack of confidence in the story pushed it back over a year. New director Peter Sohn doesn’t want people to forget the film is coming, though, and released a cute, short little teaser on Twitter. Check it out below. Read More »
