MTV just announced that the TV series based on Wes Craven’s Scream will premiere on June 30, and along with that announcement comes the first Scream TV series trailer. Right off the bat the trailer delivers a few elements common to the films in the series: a young woman alone, a horrifying death, and meta-commentary on the nature of horror storytelling. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

The new Ant-Man trailer will be online tomorrow, Monday April 13, but you can see some new Ant-Man footage right now thanks to a thirty-second trailer tease.
As the length suggests, there’s not a lot here, once you account for logo screens and such, but most of what we do see is new, and with far more polished effects than were featured in the last footage. This trailer went over big when debuted at the end of the recent Age of Ultron press conference, and this new Ant-Man footage gives you a clue as to why. Read More »
When Saban and Lionsgate announced development of a Power Rangers movie it was a notable bit of development, as the property has plenty of active fans. But that was before Joseph Kahn’s short film Power/Rangers went online. That short blew the ’90s TV property (which has enjoyed continuous production through to the present) into the stratosphere.
But we know that Kahn isn’t in the running to make the Lionsgate feature, and isn’t interested in the gig regardless. But there’s a director almost set. Dean Israelite, whose film Project Almanac was released early this year after a couple delays, is in talks to be the Power Rangers director. Read More »
Combine a tendency to remake just about everything under the sun with an increased interest in musicals and “event” programming on TV, and we get this: a planned event version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Fox is setting up a two-hour special event Rocky Horror remake, potentially called The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event, with Kenny Ortega (High School Musical, This Is It) set to direct and choreograph.

Star Trek 3 is ramping up, with a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, with Justin Lin set to direct. We know very little about the film at this point, but we can presume that cast members such as Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana will return, and we know that Idris Elba plays a villain. Now the cast has a new member, as Algerian actress Sofia Boutella, last seen in Kingsman: The Secret Service, has signed on to play “a lead role.” Read More »

The Dark Tower, based on Stephen King‘s fantasy/western series of novels, has been in development for some time, with producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Akiva Goldsman and Erica Huggins conceiving an ambitious plan for interlocked series of films and TV episodes that would tell the sprawling story over a span of several years. Their plan bounced from Universal to Warner Bros. and has seemed dead. But now Sony and Media Rights Capital (MRC) have picked up the Dark Tower movie plan, and are planning to fast-track the first film. Read More »
An English actor will play a Texas preacher who gains incredible power in AMC’s series Preacher. After being floated as a likely lead for the series some weeks ago, Dominic Cooper is finally in the process of making a deal to play Jesse Custer, “a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is able to influence people after after he merges with a heavenly creature.”
That’s a nice way of saying that Custer sort of merges with Genesis, the offspring of an angel and a demon, which gives him power that may rival that of God. Or that’s how it is in the comics, anyway; sounds like there will be a few changes made here and there as Preacher becomes a TV show. Read More »
Marvel’s promotional efforts have almost entirely been oriented around the Avengers so far this year, but with Age of Ultron hitting screens soon, Marvel will be opening up the vault on Ant-Man. We’ve seen one trailer for the July release, and a handful of stills. Now we’ve got a shot of Corey Stoll‘s alter-ego, Yellowjacket, in full costume and action pose. Granted, you won’t recognize him as Stoll because of the helmeted costume. In fact, due to the way this scene was shot, it might be an entirely CG character seen here. Regardless, see Yellowjacket in Ant-Man, below. Read More »
