Ice Cube A Christmas Carol

There have been countless adaptations of the Charles Dickens holiday classic A Christmas Carol, the story of how a bitter old man named Ebenezer Scrooge is taken on a magical journey through time by the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come turning him into a gentler, more kind man who sets out to change his miser ways.

And now one more has been added to the pile, but this one is bound to be rather different from any that have come before it. Humbug is a contemporary retelling of the classic tale set up at Universal Pictures that will have Ice Cube in the lead role as a wealthy real estate mogul shown a path to redemption by the aforementioned trio of ghosts.

Furious 7 Honest Trailer

It’s crazy to believe that we’re seven movies into what started as a throwaway action franchise back in 2001. We’ve gone from The Fast and the Furious to just Furious 7 over the span of 14 years, and a new Honest Trailer wastes no time making fun of the ever-changing title format that seems to be happening for no good reason.

Furious 7 is a big dumb action movie, but it’s also a hell of a lot of fun, and it brings with it a decent amount of heart this time since it’s the final ride for co-star Paul Walker. It does, however, seem to fit into the same mold as the others in that every single movie is the last mission for these guys, and yet they keep coming back for more. Watch the Furious 7 Honest Trailer below! Read More »

king kong vs godzilla

We’ve wondered what other details lay behind Legendary‘s move of Kong: Skull Island from Universal to Warner Bros., as the idea that WB was just a better fit for the movie seemed to be only part of the story. I wouldn’t say we know all the details yet, but a few revelations were dropped today about the state of the relationship between Universal and Legendary, and what is in store for Kong and Godzilla at Warner Bros.

The short version is that we’ll likely see a three-picture series at WB, with Skull Island being the first, Godzilla 2 being the second, and a third “King Kong vs Godzilla” film in which the two creatures will fight… or possibly even team up.  Read More »


Earlier today we reported the unhappy news that Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim 2 had been “halted indefinitely,” but that’s not the only Legendary project that’s making Universal nervous. The studio reportedly sees Warcraft, due out next summer, as a “problem movie.”

That’s a worrying description, especially since the studio has yet to publicly release any footage for fans to judge for themselves. But director Duncan Jones isn’t bothered, and he makes a pretty good case as to why you shouldn’t be, either. Read his reaction to the Warcraft problem movie comments after the jump. Read More »

Pacific Rim 2 shoot date

Pacific Rim 2 has just hit a kaiju-sized roadblock. The sci-fi action sequel has reportedly been “halted indefinitely,” after rumors of delays circulated last week.

Crimson Peak clip

Crimson Peak, the new film from Guillermo del Toro, is the writer/director’s take on a gothic haunted house movie, with Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain as sibling residents of an old mansion who welcome Hiddleston’s bride, played by Mia Wasikowska, into their midst.

Actually, “welcome” isn’t the word to use at all, as this new Crimson Peak clip shows. While the first couple trailers for the film have been all atmosphere and effects, this one is mostly drama, as Chastain thoroughly denies any warm welcome to her brother’s new bride. Read More »
