murder on the orient express featurette

Kenneth Branagh‘s glorious mustache is not the only thing that the actor-director is doing old-school in his feature film adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express.

The director and star of the 2017 adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic novel is taking painstaking means to give audiences as authentic and immersive experience as possible. That means a return to the days of yore, when filmmakers used film cameras and not digital. A new Murder on the Orient Express featurette dives into Branagh’s process, and the joy it gives actors to perform without a green screen.

new mutants trilogy

The New Mutants director Josh Boone is nothing if not efficient, beginning production for his X-Men spin-off film earlier this summer, releasing a trailer last week, and now revealing that the horror-inspired superhero movie is the first in a planned trilogy.

But Boone’s pitch for a New Mutants trilogy revolves less around plot ideas than it does genre ideas — with each New Mutants movie taking around a different horror subgenre. So if you’re not on board with the Nightmare on Elm Street meets Stranger Things supernatural horror of the trailer, don’t worry: you’ll have plenty to look forward to.

Top Gun 2 drone

Before his death in 2012, director Tony Scott promised Top Gun 2 would be “a very different movie” from the 1986 original and hinted at the idea of involving drones in the high-flying sequel. In the subsequent years, the project has undergone numerous rewrites – so much so that it seems the drone idea has been scrapped altogether.

And speaking of a director with the last name of Scott, Ridley Scott  – Tony’s brother – recently spoke about his plans for the still-untitled follow-up to Alien: Covenant and how it’s going to center more on artificial intelligence characters than the actual aliens themselves. Read more about both of these projects below.
