John Carter pitch reel

Before Disney brought John Carter to movie theaters, resulting in one of the biggest box office bombs in recent memory, the film was in development at Paramount Pictures. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow director Kerry Conran was attached to direct the adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough‘s classic sci-fi novel John Carter of Mars, but it never came to fruition before the rights lapsed and ended up at the House of Mouse.

But for anyone who has ever wondered what this first iteration of John Carter of Mars might have looked like, a presentation reel has surfaced online with some very impressive designs that would have been awesome to see on the big screen. Watch the John Carter pitch reel after the jump! Read More »

Matt Smith Terminator

When Matt Smith was first cast in Terminator: Genisys, we had no idea who he was playing. Now that the film is in theaters, of course, we have the answer — but we’re left with a whole bunch of other questions about his mysterious character.

In a new interview, screenwriters Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier explain the Terminator Genisys Matt Smith character, including where he came from, what he wants, and what in the hell he’s doing here. (Warning: Spoilers ahead for Terminator: Genisys.) Read More »

mission impossible escape room

A big emerging trend in gaming is the concept of an Escape Room, a cooperative game that puts you with a group working together to solve puzzles to escape a carefully designed puzzle of a room before a certain time.Paramount Pictures and Skydance have announced they are teaming with AMX and IMC to launch escape rooms at four theaters in major cities around the United States to promote the upcoming release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Seems like a perfect match to me.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it… The Mission: Impossible Room Escape will only be at all of these theaters for a two day time period, and considering each team will get 20 minutes in the room, there will likely be limited availability — so reserve your tickets now! Read the full Mission Impossible Escape Room press release after the jump.

JK Simmons Terminator Genisys sequel?

Terminator Genisys is now in theaters, which means I can now share with you an interview I conducted with JK Simmons last week while covering the Genisys premiere in Berlin. I’m posting this after the release because Simmons’ character O’Brien is a second-half reveal, and so I don’t have to dance around that fact I talked to him about the film in full-on spoiler mode. (So you may not want to watch the video until you’ve seen the film.)

In addition to talking to Simmons about his role in this film, I also chatted with the Whiplash star about possible future Terminator sequels. Does his character survive Terminator Genisys? Could he appear in the planned sequels? Is he signed on for Terminator 6 and Terminator 7? If they were to make more sequels, how would his character fit into the future plans? Find out all this and more, after the jump.

history of the Terminator franchise

With the holiday weekend approaching, Paramount Pictures has already unleashed Terminator: Genisys in theaters. It’s a mind-numbing, time travel action adventure that doesn’t measure up to the greatness of James Cameron’s The Terminator or T2: Judgment Day, but runs circles around Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation.

But if you haven’t kept up with the Terminator franchise over the past few decades, you can catch up on Terminator history in 10 minutes with a new retrospective video that begins with The Terminator back in 1984 and moves up through Terminator: Salvation from 2009. It tells you everything you need to know, though it doesn’t explain the best way to deal with all the time travel that’s been happening.

Star Trek Cast

The USS Enterprise will boldly go… exactly where we all thought it would. At least when it comes to the title. Director Justin Lin has confirmed the longstanding rumor that Star Trek 3 will be titled Star Trek Beyond, and shared the first (not terribly revealing) official photo from the set to boot. See the Star Trek Beyond title announcement and image after the jump.  Read More »

Terminator Genisys

It’s a given that the time-hopping plot of Terminator Genisys will involve some twists and turns. But we were surprised and disappointed to see the marketing so eagerly reveal what should’ve been a massive spoiler for the story. Turns out, director Alan Taylor was none too pleased about that choice either.

In a new interview, Taylor admits he fought against the big reveal, even if he kind of understands why the studio did it. Read the Terminator Genisys spoiler comments after the jump.  Read More »
