Jump Street Men In Black

UPDATE: Sony announced at CinemaCon that the title of the Jump StreetMen in Black crossover will be MIB 23.

Our original story from March 4, 2016 follows.

One of the biggest surprises to come out of the 2014 Sony hack (at least for our purposes) was the news that the studio was considering merging two of its franchises, 21 Jump Street and Men in Black. It seemed like a wild idea at the time, but now it’s actually happening. James Bobin (The MuppetsAlice Through the Looking Glass) is in early talks to helm the movie, which will bring back 21 Jump Street‘s Channing Tatum and Jonah HillRead More »

new spider-man costume

UPDATE: At CinemaCon, Tom Holland confirmed that the title of the upcoming Spider-Man solo movie would be Spider-Man: Homecoming, adding that “it really is a homecoming” for the character. Sony’s Tom Rothman said the title was “obviously” a high school reference, so it seems to fit with the John Hughes vibe we’ve heard about before. Holland says that throughout the story Peter Parker is really trying to find where he belongs. Check out the logo below:

A big portion of the Warner Bros presentation at this year’s movie exhibitor gathering CinemaCon was dedicated to the company’s commitment to the future of the DC movie universe. Warner Bros. head Kevin Tsujihara affirmed they are still on board to release at least 10 DC Comics movie adaptations over the next five years. Additionally, he seemed to confirm rumors that Ben Affleck will be directing a solo Batman movie.

Comic Con 2018

Comic-Con International is launching their own SVOD platform May 7 called Comic-Con HQ. They used the recent WonderCon convention to launch their alpha, and that’s where we spoke to Executive Vice President and General Manager of Comic-Con HQ, Seth Laderman. The big question is: Could Comic-Con HQ stream Hall H panels for people who don’t get in, or aren’t even in San Diego, to see?

“That is the big question,” Laderman said. “The short answer is yes. We’re going to be working with every single studio, every single panel host to be able to take the content and put it on our platform. We’re not going to be live streaming anything because we really don’t want to take away that experience of people who are the first to see and be there for it, but we can put things up shortly after.”  Read More »

CinemaCon

We’re back in Las Vegas at CinemaCon, the annual gathering of movie theater exhibitors. As you probably know by now, theater owners from around the nation gather to, among other things, watch presentations from all of the major movie studios previewing their film slates for the upcoming year and beyond. The opening night presentation was Paramount Pictures, which came to Vegas to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Ben-Hur, the first teaser trailer for the Ring franchise film Rings, the first footage from Tom Cruise’s sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Robert Zemeckis’ spy thriller Allied, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and a very early look at Baywatch starring The Rock and Zac Efron.

But the two biggest surprises involved Prisoners/Sicario/Blade Runner 2 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve adaptation of Story Of Your Life and the shocking lack of any Star Trek Beyond preview despite having Simon Pegg and JJ Abrams in town and on stage for an award celebration. The new Villeneuve film seems like a smart science fiction film, think Contact meets Close Encounters of a Third Kind. Hit the jump to watch a video blog reaction talking about all the clips shown at the presentation.

Adam Savage Hellboy

There’s plenty of impressive cosplay out there, but the reason people pay attention to former Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is because he makes a fun game out of it. Every year for San Diego Comic-Con, Mr. Savage dresses up in some kind of detailed, professionally made costume and challenges fans to find him. Usually he reserves these costumes only for San Diego, the biggest convention in the country, but since he was personally invited to the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic-Con recently, he decided to have some fun.

Adam Savage dressed up as Hellboy, which was pretty cool since the first time he went incognito for Comic-Con was back in 2009, and he also dressed like Hellboy then. However, it would be cheating if he reused the same costume, so you’ll have to see how he changed things up after the jump. See how the impressive Adam Savage Hellboy costume came together after the jump. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Damien

Damien, the A&E series based on the film The Omen, premiered March 7. So with three episodes on the air, the cast and series creator Glen Mazzara, formerly of The Walking Dead, gave a panel at Wodercon. In a press room roundtable, Mazzara told reporters we’ve only seen the beginning of how dark Damien will get.

“The show’s going to get darker,” Mazzara said. “It gets really dark. We have some episodes coming up that really, I think, are going to push the limit. It’ll be interesting to see how people respond to it. I don’t think it ever gets gratuitous or anything but we go into some pretty dark territory. It’ll be interesting to see how the middle of the season plays because that stuff is really taking risks. The end of the season I think is just a freight train. It just races and I’m really, really proud of the finale. I think people will be pleased when they see how it all comes together and all the questions people have about Damien I think are going to be answered. I’m excited for people to see it.”  Read More »

The 100 Stealing Fire

The cast and creator of The CW’s The 100 were at WonderCon last weekend for a panel. After their panel, we caught up with creator Jason Rothenberg and stars Eliza Taylor and Lindsey Morgan in roundtables. The show has been on hiatus for a few weeks after a devastating episode in which (spoiler alert!) Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey) dies moments after consummating her love with Clarke (Taylor). The Flame, an A.I., is removed from Lexa’s neck and saved for the future commander. Rothenberg said The 100 will address that story for the rest of the season, but takes a bit of a break this week.

“Episode 9 is a different story,” Rothenberg said. “It’s a very emotional episode and it has a lot of things in it that will be hard for people to watch, but it’s a very special episode in many ways. The story of The Flame from the Arcadia side of it, from A.L.I.E.’s side of it is taking a week off. In 10 is when that really begins to ramp up in a huge, huge way.”  Read More »

Legends of Tomorrow

Marc Guggenheim produces both Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow as part of Greg Berlanti’s team of Arrowverse producers. He was at WonderCon for a Legends of Tomorrow panel with his cast, and gave roundtable interviews with the press after. Coming up on Legends, Jonah Hex gets another chance as Jonathan Schaech plays him on television.

“He’s in episode 11, I can tease that,” Guggenheim said. “He’s terrific. Jonathan is an amazing Jonah Hex. I would say very, very faithful to the comics incarnation with a touch more sass, a little bit more attitude. That might have had something to do with the fact that I wrote episode 11 and I can’t seem to write characters without sass. But he’s great and watching his interactions with Rip are gold. They’re just so much fun. Jonathan and Arthur [Darvill] make a great team.”  Read More »
