Right now WonderCon is underway over in Los Angeles, and some little details from the panels at the pop culture convention are making their way online. Our first update out of the gate concerns Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows with a new addition to the cast.
In addition to the first big screen appearance of henchman mutants Rocksteady (Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly) and Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), the sequel would also be bringing the inter-dimensional villain Krang into the fray. We got our first look at the little pink creature and his exo-suit in the Super Bowl spot for the movie, which was a cool little surprise. Now we have word on who will be providing his voice in the movie, and it’s a former Saturday Night Live cast member. Find out who will provide the Krang voice in the sequel, and check out an extended TV spot and a couple new posters after the jump. Read More »

Even though the horror flick Ouija, inspired by the spirit board that has been said to allow users to speak to people in the afterlife, wasn’t a massive hit at the box office last year, it still pulled in $100 million worldwide on a budget of just $5 million. That made it profitable enough for Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions, Platinum Dunes and Hasbro to move forward with a sequel, which was announced back in January.
The first movie was absolutely terrible, and the paltry 7% on Rotten Tomatoes reinforces that. However, now there’s a chance that the sequel could be better with with Oculus helmer Mike Flanagan directing Ouija 2. Plus, one of his stars from the aforementioned superior psychological horror flick is coming with him. Read More »
For fans who may have disappointed in last year’s reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the studio is hoping you’ll give them a second chance, and they’re including some fan favorite characters to help get butts back in the seats.
Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly) will be appearing in the sequel, but the real draw in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is Arrow star Stephen Amell as vigilante Casey Jones, an ally of our heroes in a half-shell. But while fans may be excited to see the hockey-masked crime fighter in action again, Amell says that this version of Casey Jones is a little different than you might expect.

Few Friday the 13th fans will forget the 2013 rumor that producers were exploring a found footage angle for Jason’s next big screen massacre. The news immediately struck a nerve of the fan community with most being very vocal against the idea. “Please no,” “Ugh, F*** off” “Found footage idea sucks” and “This sounds like dogs***” are just four of the comments on our article about the rumor. Since then, we’ve only heard a few key updates on the film. Director David Bruckner and writer Nick Antosca are on board, with the film moving towards a Summer 2016 release date.
Now, producer Brad Fuller admitted the negative fan reaction to the found footage idea helped them discard that version of the film. He says their current take will be more of what fans want. Read the latest on the Friday the 13th sequel below. Read More »

Today is Friday the 13th and you’re probably seen images of Jason Voorhees, the killer at the center of the crazy successful Friday the 13th franchise, all over social media. The last film in the series was released in 2009 and a sequel has been in works since then. It was originally supposed to come out early this year, and is now set for May 13, 2016.
However, in that time we’ve heard very little concrete information on the film. We know Paramount will distribute. We know Platinum Dunes will produce and David Bruckner will direct. After that, the speculation has run rampant: will the next Friday the 13th sequel will once again reboot the franchise? Will it be found footage film? How will it use Jason?
Brad Fuller, one of the heads of Platinum Dunes, sat down with Esquire Magazine to offer some big updates on the franchise. The biggest being an interesting potential twist for the story, but also the assertion that it won’t be found-footage. (Which will hopefully put that one rumor to bed for good.)

I have a vague recollection of seeing Ouija in the theater. I remember walking in, I remember Olivia Cooke and that iconic board game. I also have a weird memory of a finale in a basement. But that’s basically it. Suffice to say, the movie didn’t stick with me. It wasn’t that scary or compelling and I haven’t really thought about it since.
But no matter. The film only cost $5 million, had a $20 million opening, grossed $50 million domestic and another $30 million and change internationally. $5 million to make almost $85 million? That’s something film producers remember. Because of that, a Ouija sequel is in the works. Read More »
