When Warner Bros. announced a ten-film slate of DC Comics films last week, taking the studio all the way to 2020, you might have noticed one big omission. There was no Sandman, which we know Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been developing over much of 2014. But worry not (or continue to worry, if you’re afraid of the film), as Sandman creator Neil Gaiman says things are still moving along, and that we can expect another announcement. In short, Sandman isn’t part of the DC movie slate, because it is part of the Vertigo movie slate. Read More »

New Line had planned a Conjuring sequel for October 2015, but that plan has changed. Just weeks after the Conjuring spin-off Annabelle opened in the US, New Line has pulled The Conjuring 2 off the 3015 schedule, pushing it into 2016. The studio will still use that date for horror, and will release a different, as-yet untitled horror movie on the old Conjuring 2 date. Could this have anything to do with the good reception for Annabelle, which technically exists in the same series, but was a lot cheaper to make? Read More »
There’s no new Pixar movie in 2014, but we’ll get two from the studio in 2015. June brings Pete Docter’s Inside Out (which you can read lots about here) and then, November 25, 2015, they’ll release The Good Dinosaur.
The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled to hit theaters in Summer 2014, but a change of directors and lack of confidence in the story pushed it back over a year. New director Peter Sohn doesn’t want people to forget the film is coming, though, and released a cute, short little teaser on Twitter. Check it out below. Read More »
We’re back here again. It’s been a week full of rumors, as talk swirls about who will be in WB’s next DC movie, Suicide Squad, and whether or not Jena Malone is in Batman v Superman. (As it turns out, she is.) On the Marvel side the talk has all been about Doctor Strange. While we once thought Joaquin Phoenix might sign to star in the picture, he moved on. Other names have been floated, with Keanu Reeves coming up more and more often. Another new one is in the mix: Colin Farrell. How could Farrell be Strange if he also has a full season of True Detective to shoot? Timing is everything.
Update: Like John Wick going after his enemies, Keanu Reeves has started to kill rumor talk about Doctor Strange, saying he hasn’t been approached. We have his quotes after the original story below.

The second rumors began circulating of an all-female Ghostbusters, the first person people though of was Melissa McCarthy. The Bridesmaids star is the most popular female comedic actress out there right now and her inclusion seemed like a forgone conclusion. That got even more likely when her frequent collaborator, Paul Feig, signed on to direct.
However, while McCarthy will probably, eventually, end up in the new Ghostbusters film, she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she not yet been cast. Watch McCarthy talk about the film, along with Lena Dunham and Ellen DeGeneres, below. Read More »
On paper, James Cameron has nothing to do with 2015′s Terminator Genisys. It’s a film based on characters he created, starring an actor he cast, but that’s about it. A few months ago, he did reveal he was “loosely attached” in an advisory role, but wouldn’t be credited. He said his biggest contribution was in regards to the role of the Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator 5 character. But what exactly did that mean?
Apparently, a lot. In a new interview Cameron revealed his contribution to Terminator Genisys was the seed that made it possible for a 67-year-old Schwarzenegger to return to his iconic role as the T-800. Read the specifics below as well as what Cameron thought of the script and his feelings on returning to the franchise. Read More »
2015 is so packed with big movies, getting any one to stand out is important. Films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World and Terminator Genisys have all released information and a photo or two to whet the fan appetites. Even Star Wars Episode VII put out very cryptic videos teasing returning vehicles and characters. The one film that has yet to release any images, and has so far avoided all conventions and other public appearances, is Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four. It’s currently the most mysterious blockbuster of 2015.
The lack of early promotion has been quite a point of contention online. Some love being in the dark about a movie. It’s a breath of fresh air in today’s mainstream film culture. For others, the lack of awareness is worrisome. More than almost any of the other films mentioned, Fantastic Four has been under a microscope and some kind of information for fans would help to drive the conversation and alleviate worries.
As fans continue to debate the timing of Fantastic Four images or footage, it will eventually happen. We’ll get a reveal of the suits, a poster, some images, then eventually a trailer and more leading up to the film’s release on August 7, 2015.
The film’s producer and writer, Simon Kinberg, is aware of this debate and in a new interview explained why there’s been a hesitance to reveal anything from the film too early. Read his Fantastic Four reboot quotes below. Read More »
