Ridley Scott on set of THE MARTIAN

Ridley Scott‘s adaptation of Andy Weir‘s The Martian was a smashing success by any measure, and 20th Century Fox is hoping to recreate that magic again. The studio has just picked up an untitled pitch from Weir, which Scott will produce along with The Martian‘s Simon Kinberg.

It’s the second The Martian reunion we’ve heard about this month. Last week we got word Scott was re-teaming with The Martian screenwriter Drew Goddard (who’s not involved in the new Weir movie) for Wraiths of the Broken Land. Read More »

Kingsman 2 poster

Kingsman: The Golden Circle promises to take the U.K. spy organization across the Atlantic, where they’ll hook up with their Stateside counterparts like Jack (Pedro Pascal) and Ginger (Halle Berry). But it’s still managed to find some room to loop in a major British icon. Elton John is reportedly in talks to join the action sequel, which will be directed once again by Matthew Vaughn.

UPDATE: Elton John has confirmed he’ll appear in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. See his Instagram announcement below.

x-force movie

The on-again, off-again development process for Fox’s X-Force movie seems to be back on again. X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has revealed that the X-Men spinoff is still in the works, with Simon Kinberg already hard at work on the script. And what’s more, that it may feature the fan-favorite comic book character X-23, essentially a female clone of Wolverine.  Read More »

Predator

Shane Black wants to make The Predator an event film. Initially, Black had reservations about the sequel, but 20th Century Fox’s idea of making a genuine piece of big-scale spectacle piqued his interest. Following the forgettable Alien vs. Predator movies and the underwhelming PredatorsThe Nice Guys director and the studio are intent on “doing it right this time.” By doing it “right,” that involves sticking to the original 1986 film’s R-rating.

Below, Black discusses how Deadpool‘s success might’ve helped the project and the new Predator costume.

Who Should Play Cable

Now that Deadpool fans have had the privilege of seeing the Merc with a Mouth brought to the big screen properly, they’re eagerly anticipating what director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick have in store for the sequel. It’s still early days on the follow-up to the R-rated surprise hit of the year, but thanks to the credits scene at the end of Deadpool, we already know one thing we can expect from Deadpool 2, and that’s the introduction of Cable.

Ever since Cable was confirmed to appear in the sequel, fans have been trying to figure out who the best man for the job would be. One of the more popular suggestions, with support from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, has been Jon Hamm while Avatar star Stephen Lang also threw his own name into the ring. Now one more possible candidate for who should play Cable has emerged in the form of Dolph Lundgren. Find out more below. Read More »

X-Men Sequel in Space

We’re still a couple weeks away from the debut of X-Men: Apocalypse hitting theaters, but reviews have already started to pour in following the premiere, and they’re not all that complimentary. Surely X-Men fans are still hoping for the best, but if the sequel doesn’t work out, the next X-Men sequel may help heal those wounds.

Director Bryan Singer is making the rounds to promote X-Men: Apocalypse and he’s already talking about what will be happening in the next X-Men movie. Just recently we learned it will be set in the 90s, continuing the trend of having each sequel since X-Men: First Class set in a different decade. Now Singer is teasing what’s next for the X-Men, and it may involve the unexplored cosmic side of the mutant universe. Find out more about the potential of an X-Men sequel in space after the jump.

Last year’s Fantastic Four was a failure by just about any measure. It’s one of the worst reviewed and one of the lowest-grossing Marvel Comics adaptations of all time, it derailed Josh Trank’s once-promising career, and it further tarnished the reputation of a property that had already been ill-served by 2005’s Fantastic Four. It came as no surprise, then, when 20th Century Fox quietly yanked the planned sequel from its summer 2017 slate. But producer Simon Kinberg says they aren’t giving up just yet.

“We want to make another Fantastic Four movie,” Kinberg said during the recent press tour for X-Men: Apocalypse. And they’re really going to try to get it right this time, he promises: “We’ll try to be truer to the essence of the tone of Fantastic Four,” he said.  Read More »

Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 11.34.08 PM

“We don’t want this to be a superhero film; we want it to be a film that embraces what it is to be human,” director Justin Kurzel said from the set of his adaptation of Assassin’s Creed. Now, for most video game adaptations or huge tentpole films in general, such a comment would sound too good to be true–but this is coming from the director Snowtown Murders and last year’s Macbeth. Video game adaptations often don’t attract filmmakers of Kurzel’s caliber (although there’s another rare exception this year). He went from making a visceral and visually intoxicating William Shakespeare adaptation, which also starred Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, to bringing Ubisoft’s dense world to theaters.

assassin's creed trailer breakdown

The first trailer for Assassin’s Creed arrived late last night, so you know what that means – it’s time for a trailer breakdown, where we go through this whole batch of footage frame-by-frame and talk about what we find. I’m approaching this as a casual fan of the video game franchise. I’ve played a few and I’ve enjoyed them. I’m also approaching this as someone who thinks Michael Fassbender and Justin Kurzel making a video game adaptation is just plain fascinating. These are not the kind of people who half-ass their movies. There is no way this is just another lousy video game movie…right?

Anyway, let’s climb a tall tower and dive into this trailer…
