The Maze Runner 3 Release Date

The end of last month brought news that production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure had been postponed indefinitely to allow franchise star Dylan O’Brien more time to recover. The actor was injured when a stunt went wrong back in March. Details on how the accident occurred haven’t been confirmed, but O’Brien was said to have several broken bones, either fracturing his cheek bone or orbital socket.

At this time, it’s unclear just how much longer O’Brien needs to recover before production can resume on the third film in the franchise based on author James Dashner‘s book series. But the good news is 20th Century Fox has plans to get the movie back on track, and that begins by setting a new release date for early in 2018. Plus, the studio has also shifted some release dates for a couple upcoming Marvel movies and the reboot of Predator. Find out more below Read More »

X-Men Apocalypse Review

As the third film in the most recent trilogy in the X-Men franchise, it’s pretty bold to have a joke in X-Men: Apocalypse that mentions the third film in a trilogy is usually the worst. The line is meant to take a shot at the almost universally hated X-Men: The Last Stand, and while X-Men: Apocalypse is nowhere near as bad as Brett Ratner’s film from 2006, it’s not without some shortcomings of its own.

X-Men: Apocalypse has a simple, hollow story, spinning a wheel that also treads water. However, it also does a great job of bringing the young versions of familiar X-Men into this modified timeline and delivers some thoroughly entertaining action. In short, X-Men: Apocalypse feels like an extended episode of X-Men: The Animated Series, for better and worse.

battle angel alita rosa salazar

Movie fans with long memories may recall that Alita: Battle Angel was once known as Battle Angel Alita and that it was supposed to be James Cameron‘s next film after Avatar. Then Cameron decided to make Avatar movies until the day he dies and the Hollywood adaptation of the popular manga was handed over to director Robert Rodriguez last year. Now, after years of existing primarily as the second-to-last question in James Cameron interviews, this project is finally starting to take shape. If the latest report is to be believed, we’ll see Rosa Salazar in Alita Battle Angel. Read More »

Alien Covenant Photo

On Alien Day last month, director Ridley Scott offered our first look at the production of Alien: Covenant by way of the mission patch with the name of the title ship we’ll be following. This is just the first of what is meant to be two sequels (even though Scott once said this was the first in a new trilogy) that lead us up to the events of Alien in 1979. Production is still underway, and a new photo has just been shared from the set that provides us with our first look at Katherine Waterston as the new female lead character, Daniels. Will she be as cool as Ellen Ripley?

Original X-Men Cast

Bryan Singer will next make 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which begins filming this fall, but the director isn’t done with the X-Men franchise yet. His newest addition to the series, X-Men: Apocalypse, opens in theaters this Friday, but he’s already expressed interest in continuing with the franchise, although whether he’ll direct another sequel is unconfirmed. Screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg revealed the next installment will take place in the ’90s, presumably following the latest recruits, and possibly the X-Men: First Class castmates if they decide to return.

But what about the original cast, the one Bryan Singer helped put together for the first X-Men film? Most of them appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but did that conclude their involvement with the franchise? Below, Singer says he’s interested in bringing back the original X-Men cast members, but only under the right circumstances.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Big Trouble Remake

A year ago we learned that The Rock would be starring in a big screen remake of Big Trouble In Little China, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. Sometimes when you don’t hear about a film project for a long time you just assume that it could have fallen into development heck. I thought this might be the case with The Rock’s Big Trouble remake, especially since the action star keeps getting attached to so many new projects, like the Jumanji remake and the Robert Ludlum cinematic universe. I mean, how much time does this man have?

But according to Dwayne Johnson, the film is still in the works. Find out what The Rock said, after the jump.

wolverine 3 villains

It’s starting to look like the goal of the currently filming Wolverine 3 is to send Hugh Jackman‘s adamantium-clawed superhero out with a bloody bang by throwing as many villains at him as possible. We already know that Narcos star Boyd Holbrook will play the lead villain, an original character reportedly created specifically for this film and that Richard E. Grant will play a “mad scientist” of some kind. Even the post-credits scene in X-Men: Apocalypse appears to be setting up a future villain whose identity will lurk behind this link for those who wish to know.

Now, a new report claims to know about another group of villains that will menace Wolverine in his cinematic swan song and fans will be pleased to note that they have been ripped straight from the comics. Some of you may find this to be a minor spoiler, so feel free to stop reading now if you don’t want to know about the Wolverine 3 villains.

Morgan Trailer

Last year Ridley Scott delivered the crowd-pleasing sci-fi survival drama The Martian, and now he’s busy shooting Alien: Covenant, the first film in what is supposed to be a new trilogy that will lead up to the events of the original Alien from 1979. But before that, Scott had time to produce a promising new sci-fi thriller directed by his son Luke Scott.

The film is called Morgan, and the first teaser trailer just debuted with some flares of Alien, Ex Machina and Firestarter. Plus, it’s a pure teaser that doesn’t give much away, which makes it all the move intriguing. Watch the Morgan trailer after the jump. Read More »
