Popeye test footage

Genndy Tartakovsky has been working on bringing the world’s most famous spinach enthusiast to the big screen for a few years now, and today he finally revealed a little peek in the form of some Popeye animation test footage.

As he stresses, “it’s not a clip, it’s not a trailer, it’s nothing from the actual movie, the voices are all temp.” But he describes it as “just something that kind of represents what we want to do,” so it still offers a pretty great idea of what he has in store for us. Watch the Popeye test footage after the jump.

Ghostbusters

Every few weeks there’s a new reason Ghostbusters 3 hasn’t happened yet. Some are valid, others are not, but for the past 25 years there’s always something. First it was Bill Murray’s reluctance, then it was Chris Miller and Phil Lord passing on the project, of course the tragic death of Harold Ramis, Ivan Reitman’s departure, script problems, the list goes on and on. At the center of it all is the spokeman for the franchise: co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd.

In a new interview Aykroyd offers up a totally new reason for the delay and it’s one that makes a good amount of sense, considering the climate in Hollywood. Aykroyd said everyone involved in the project isn’t just looking at Ghostbusters 3. They’re looking at a whole Ghostbusters universe: prequels, sequels, TV shows and more in hopes of building a connected, multimedia Ghostbusters franchise like Disney has with Marvel. Read More »

Hoyte Van Hoytema Bond 24

Normally we’d have a large measure of sympathy for anyone who had to take over a job following Roger Deakins. And since Deakins isn’t shooting the new Bond film, someone has to step into his shoes. But the person to take over the job shooting Bond 24 is Hoyte van Hoytema, who did such a tremendous job with Her, and then shot Interstellar for Christopher Nolan. So things are probably going to work out just fine. There’s another good detail in the Hoyte Van Hoytema Bond 24 news, which you can find below. Read More »

Venom

As great a character as Spider-Man is, his villains are often just as interesting. That’s one of the many reasons Sony is moving ahead with a Sinister Six film before they get back to The Amazing Spider-Man 3. They’re also moving forward with a solo film for one of Spidey’s most popular villains, Venom. That one will be directed by Alex Kurtzman, but we don’t know much about it other than that it is happening.

In a new interview, the director gave an updating saying Ed Solomon will start writing the script soon, and that choosing which character would be under the suit in the film hasn’t been an easy decision. Read the Alex Kurtzman Venom quotes below. Read More »

 know what you did last summer remake

Well, it’s official. Hollywood has apparently exhausted all of the classic horror remakes of the Seventies and Eighties because they’ve moved to the Nineties. Sony Pictures has begun to develop a remake of I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 hit originally written by Scream writer Kevin Williamson. The remake will be written and produced by Oculus filmmaker Mike Flanagan, based on the 1974 novel by Lois Duncan that inspired Williamson’s script. Sony wants the film on the fast track for release in 2016. Read More »

‘Bond 24′ Will Shoot in December

bond 24 starts filming in december

Sony could’ve followed up the massive success of Skyfall with a quickie sequel. Instead, they’ve taken their time getting the right cast, crew, and story together. (Including Skyfall director Sam Mendes.) Now, two years after Skyfall first landed in theaters, they’ve finally set a date to start shooting Bond 24.

According to a new report making the rounds, the new adventure will enter production in December for release next fall. Hit the jump to get the latest details and catch up on what we know about Bond 24 so far.

David Fincher 20000 leagues

This fall brings the release of Gone Girl, David Fincher‘s first theatrical release since 2011′s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. In between the two films, he was circling several others including the Dragon Tattoo follow-up The Girl Who Played with Fire and Disney’s Jules Verne adaptation 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The latter is definitely dead at this point, with Fincher even offering up an explanation as to where things went wrong. The director sounded a bit more optimistic about The Girl Who Played With Fire, however, predicting that Sony would do “something” with the project. Hit the jump to read his comments on 20000 Leagues and the Dragon Tattoo sequel.
