Six years ago, news of a Tomb Raider movie reboot first hit the web. It was being developed by GK Films as an origin story drawing inspiration from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. MGM then came on board and there a script was even commissioned. But we haven’t heard anything since 2013.
Now there’s the first significant update in two years. Warner Bros. has come on board to distribute the film, which will be written by Evan Daugherty, the writer of Snow White and the Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divergent and the upcoming G.I. Joe 3. Read more about the Tomb Raider movie reboot below. Read More »

The Lego Movie will be followed by several big screen sequels and spin-offs. The direct sequel just landed a director and will be out in 2018. A Ninjago spin-off will come out in 2016 and the Lego Batman spin-off will be out in 2017. But we now know that’s not all. We’re going to get a sort-of sequel later this year. Just not on the big screen.
LEGO has announced later this year, their LEGOLAND theme parks and Discover Centers will debut a brand new 4D short film based on The Lego Movie, featuring Emmet and Wyldstyle. Read more about the new LEGOLAND Lego Movie ride below. Read More »
Phil Lord and Chris Miller wrote and directed The Lego Movie to massive hit status, and created a legitimately good movie at the same time. We knew a sequel was in the works, but the Lego Batman spin-off movie (to be directed by The Lego Movie‘s director of animation Chris McKay) recently took over the release date once meant for the sequel. McKay was also set to direct the proper Lego sequel, and him moving to the Batman movie created an empty director’s chair on the sequel.
Now The Lego Movie Sequel — that’s the legit title, based on a new press release — has a new director. Rob Schrab, a directing veteran of Community, The Mindy Project, Childrens Hospital, and writer on The Sarah Silverman Show, will direct the sequel. Read More »
Shazam is set for 2019, with DC and Warner Bros. having scheduled the big-screen debut of DC’s own version of Captain Marvel last year when it set a film slate through 2020. We don’t know who’ll play the title character in Shazam, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will play Black Adam, the anti-hero who begins as a villain, but seems set to experience some redemptive story arc in the film. The Rock has been the person talking most about Shazam in the past year, and now he says the character (or the film?) may arrive sooner than expected. Read More »
The fan community has finally come down from the high of seeing what Aquaman looks like in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It was an exciting moment, both because of the character himself and because we hadn’t heard many updates on the film in a while.
Jumping off that, a few minor Batman v Superman updates are now out there. First up, the film’s costume designer, Michael Wilkinson, talked a bit about the responsibility of designing a look for Aquaman. Second, composer Hans Zimmer offered up a few thoughts on the score, which he will soon begin working on. He says that, ideally, all of the heroes in this film will have their own themes and reiterates that Junkie XL will be doing the Batman half of the music.

Here’s a new trailer for Ryan Gosling‘s directorial debut Lost River, which features Eva Mendes, Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Ben Mendelsohn, and Matt Smith.
The film has been the subject of plenty of talk since it debuted at Cannes almost a year ago. The Cannes reviews weren’t particularly kind, but Cannes reviews can be polarized at times, and this clearly isn’t intended to be a movie for everyone. Influences seem to play heavily on this story of a single mother trying to make a living for her family in an all-but-abandoned town; the works of Nicolas Winding Refn and Terrence Malick appears to echo in footage we’ve seen.
This Lost River international trailer might show you a new angle or two from the upcoming film, and we’re still very curious to see how the movie itself plays. Read More »
