Ryan Reynolds Talks Deadpool 2

Fans became a little concerned about the future of Deadpool 2 when director Tim Miller, an integral part of the success of the first movie, departed the sequel following creative differences with star and producer Ryan Reynolds. But now John Wick director David Leitch has been brought on board, and hopefully we’ll get a sequel that satisfies everyone who loved the first, raunchy, fourth-wall breaking, comic book romp.

With Ryan Reynolds recently being named Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainer of the Year, the actor sat down with the magazine to discuss the sequel, his excitement for the new director, and a resistance to making the follow-up bigger than the first.

2017 X-Men Movie

Following this past summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, many fans are hoping for a brighter future for the X-Men franchise. However, as we heard last month, 20th Century Fox was trying to figure out how to continue the X-Men franchise, and it seems like we might have an answer.

A new X-Men movie has been reported to begin production next spring in Montreal, returning to MELS Studios, the same location where X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse were shot. The question is, what is X-Men movie shooting in 2017? Read More »

Escape from New York Prequel

We’re coming up on 10 years of development on the Escape from New York remake that originated at New Line Cinema but now finds itself at 20th Century Fox. Over the years, we’ve seen various talents attached such as writers like Gary Whitta (Book of Eli) and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) involved, directors such as Brett Ratner and Breck Eisner once attached, and names like Gerard Butler and Tom Hardy thrown around to play the lead.

As of now, no new talent has come on board since Luther creator Neil Cross was hired last fall, but some new details have emerged on the project that could either be really interesting or extremely frustrating for fans of the original movie. First and foremost, it has been confirmed that the Escape from New York remake is in fact a prequel that will provide some origin details on both Snake Plissken (originally played by Kurt Russell) and the state of the world. However, keep in mind that some of these details might dive into spoiler territory, so continue to read at your own risk. Read More »

assassin's creed clip

The 2016 edition of The Game Awards were held last night (Blizzard’s Overwatch was the big winner, for the record) and 20th Century Fox used this celebration of the best in video games to advertise Assassin’s Creed, their upcoming video game movie adaptation starring Michael Fassbender. This extended clip from the film was preaching to the choir last night, but it’s now arrived online, ready to win the hearts and minds of non-gamers looking for a big movie that will allow them to escape their family for two hours this holiday season.

Assassin's Creed Featurette

This holiday season, Hollywood will get yet another attempt at proving they can turn a video game into a decent movie. Warcraft wasn’t the hit that Legendary Pictures hoped it would be, even if it was the most successful video game movie of all time, so now 20th Century Fox is hoping Assassin’s Creed can do the trick.

Michael Fassbender stars in the movie about a man who is hooked up to a machine called The Animus that allows a team of scientists to tap into the experiences of his ancestors. A new Assassin’s Creed featurette dives into the science of the machine’s genetic time travel and explains how the concept of the video game is being adapted into a movie. Read More »

alien covenant photo

In space, no one can hear Ridley Scott celebrate his birthday, appear in a new Alien: Covenant set photo, and presumably receive phone calls from friends and colleagues congratulating him on being chosen to receive the Directors Guild of America Lifetime Achievement Award. But this is the internet, so we can hear all of the relevant details in one brisk movie news post.

assassin's creed clip

We’re less than a month away from the release of Assassin’s Creed and I can’t help but wonder if anyone outside of the faithful are prepared to lay down money to watch Michael Fassbender kind-of sort-of time travel into the distant past so he can stab people in the face. While these video games have a strong following (and a few of them have been genuinely great), I’ve yet to encounter any non-gamers who have greeted the trailers with anything more than a shrug. In a month where it has to battle the likes of Rogue One, Passengers, and Sing, Assassin’s Creed is far from a sure thing, even if it’s a good movie.

The first clip from the film has arrived and it shows off Fassbender and Marion Cotillard looking very intense in order to sell a potentially silly situation. Is this the kind of clip that 20th Century Fox’s marketing team thinks will get butts in seats? I have no idea. I just sit stand at the sidelines and shout at movie news all day.
