The next film from Mad Max director George Miller probably won’t be a huge spectacle, and he’s almost certainly not making a Man of Steel sequel.
It’s been a strange journey for George Miller in the past decade. Work on Mad Max: Fury Road began about fifteen years ago, and when that film was delayed he turned to Justice League, casting and designing the film (see the concept art above) and getting it to a point where production could begin. Then the economic situation changed in Australia and the writers’ strike happened. Justice League died and Miller went back to Happy Feet Two, and to Mad Max, which was finally released to great acclaim this year.
There were rumors that Miller, who grew up on DC Comics, might go back to a DC movie, with reports pegging him as a possible Man of Steel 2 director. But now Miller says his next film will be a small one even as he pushes aside those Man of Steel reports. Read More »

Pretty much every mainstream superhero movie that comes out these days is rated PG-13, so it should come as no surprise that Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been rated PG-13 as well. The only part of that announcement that should raise an eyebrow is the MPAA’s reasoning. Find out more about the Batman v Superman PG-13 rating after the jump. Read More »

It’s time for another updating on the long-gestating development of The Goonies 2 from one of the child cast members who is now all grown up, and surprisingly, they’re not sick of talking about the possibility yet.
Sean Astin has been acting for decades, and while fans likely always want to ask him about Rudy and Lord of the Rings, perhaps the more persistent question is with regards to a sequel to the Steven Spielberg produced, Richard Donner directed adventure The Goonies.
To promote an upcoming appearance at a pop culture convention in October, Astin provided a Goonies 2 update, including uncertainty about whether or not the original cast will even be back for the sequel. Read More »

There’s a lot we still don’t know about Kong: Skull Island, but the one thing that’s becoming increasingly obvious is that it’ll have a really, really great cast. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ latest get is John Goodman, who joins Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, Toby Kebbell, and Straight Outta Compton breakouts Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell. (Told you it was a fantastic lineup.)
Get details on the John Goodman Kong Skull Island casting, as well as new info about the plot, after the jump. Read More »

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows kicked off a whole wave of two-part YA series finales, and now that trend has come all the way back around to the franchise that started it. J.K. Rowling has announced that her upcoming play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be split into two parts, because the story is just too “epic” to fit into one. Read the Cursed Child two parts announcement after the jump. Read More »
This winter brings the promising spin-off Creed, which is also a spiritual sequel of sorts to the iconic Rocky franchise that Sylvester Stallone has kept going for decades. Michael B. Jordan plays the son of the late Apollo Creed, one of Rocky’s most formidable opponents, and he’s anxious to get in the ring and follow in his footsteps (though hopefully without dying).
A new TV spot has just popped up online showing Rocky training the young new boxer Adonis Creed, but then there’s a little tease of one particular point of drama in the movie. In this Creed TV spot, it appears Rocky isn’t exactly in the best shape and may spend a little time in the hospital. Would this spin-off be so bold as to kill him off and truly pass the torch to Michael B. Jordan? Read More »
