new Shaft movie

New Line’s Shaft reboot is moving forward with help from, of all places, ABC’s Wednesday night sitcom block. Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and The Goldbergs writer/exec producer Alex Barnow have been tapped to write the latest take on blaxploitation classic.

Whereas the original Shaft was a gritty thriller, the new film is envisioned as an action-comedy. Not surprisingly, not everyone is happy about this change in tone. One vocal opponent is current Shaft comic book writer David F. Walker, who has a message for New Line Cinema: “Fuck you!” More about the Shaft reboot writers after the jump.  Read More »

Walking Dead season six

While we were at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this month, we learned quite a bit about the forthcoming sixth season of The Walking Dead premiering in October (check out our full panel recap right here). And the lengthy trailer for the new season also teased plenty of confrontation, zombie action, and even a few new characters in Alexandria.

Now some new photos from the sixth season of The Walking Dead have surfaced, giving us another look at a new character played by Ethan Embry (who can be seen in the aforementioned trailer), as well as previously unseen characters played by Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) and Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton). See the new Walking Dead season six photos, and find out more about the new characters after the jump! Read More »

Drunk Ron Weasley

Were Harry Potter a real person, he’d be turning 35 this Friday. To wish him a happy birthday, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon brought on a special guest in last night’s episode: Drunk Ron Weasley, played by Simon Pegg.

Unfortunately, Ron pretty quickly gets sidetracked, threatening to show off his “Fifty Shades of Ginger” and weeping over his recent marital woes with Hermione. Watch the Drunk Ron Weasley video after the jump.  Read More »

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION

As it stands, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has no shortage of crowdpleasing stunts, twists, and turns. But as happens with every movie, there were some bits that just couldn’t make it in the final cut.

The 33 trailer

Next week marks the fifth anniversary of the San José mine cave-in, which left 33 miners trapped 2,300 feet below ground near Copiapó, Chile. Once it become apparent they’d survived the initial shock, the government scrambled to rescue them as the whole world watched. After spending a record 69 days underground, all 33 men were eventually brought to safety.

Now the whole world will get the chance to watch the drama unfold all over again, albeit in a more accelerated fashion and with more movie stars. Directed by Patricia Riggan, The 33 dramatizes those real-life events — both the men’s struggle to survive underground and the efforts of their loved ones, government officials, and rescue workers aboveground. Watch The 33 trailer after the jump.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Yesterday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press tour, Netflix presented a panel on Longmire, the series they rescued from A&E for a new season on the streaming service. After the panel I approached actor Bailey Chase for a further interview, and he gave me an exclusive story about his work on Batman v Superman.

More interesting, his comments shed a bit of light on one shot from the film that we’ve wondered about: the image of people on horseback seen in the Comic Con trailer. Read More »
