Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes was one of 2009’s more pleasant surprises, a slick, silly, and surprisingly faithful cinematic re-imagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary “consulting detective.” It’s 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, wasn’t nearly as good, replacing much of the original’s charming bombast with very loud bombast. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the rapport between Robert Downey Jr.‘s insufferable genius investigator and Jude Law‘s put-upon Dr. Watson. I’d be lying again if I said I wouldn’t plunk down the cost of a movie ticket to watch those two bicker and banter one more time.
And while we haven’t heard any solid news about Sherlock Holmes 3 for a few years, Downey Jr. himself says the film is still in development, even hinting that it may shoot later this year.

For some time now, Andy Serkis has been working on his directorial debut The Jungle Book, a “dark” take on Rudyard Kipling‘s source material. The film was originally supposed to open in 2016, but was pushed to 2017 and then to 2018. Clearly, Serkis is willing to take the time to get it right. And to that end, he’s just brought in a bit of outside help. Alfonso Cuarón has reportedly been brought on board to give notes on the production. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them didn’t feature many specific plot details and it didn’t properly introduce the majority of the cast. What it did do was start to build the connections between J.K. Rowling‘s latest foray into her beloved Wizarding World and the Harry Potter movies, using familiar imagery, music, and names to let the more casual folks in the audience know that this movie exists in the same universe as Severus Snape and Hermione Granger. It just happens to take place a few decades earlier. The trailer even went as far as to mention a certain Albus Dumbledore.
Naturally, name-dropping the future headmaster of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry got fans wondering – will any familiar faces actually show up in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? After all, it takes place an ocean and 80 or so years away from the Harry Potter movies.

Now they’ve made room for one more Spider-Man alum: Willem Dafoe, who played the villainous Green Goblin in that universe but will get to be a good guy here. Read More »

In news that manages to be surprising and entirely unsurprising all at once, Warner Bros. has revealed that their animated adaptation of the infamous comic Batman: The Killing Joke will be rated R. It’s surprising because Warner Bros.’ library of direct-to-DVD movies set in the DC superhero universe have traditionally been produced with younger audiences in mind. Yet, it’s unsurprising because writer Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland‘s 1988 one-shot is one of the grimmest Batman stories ever created and the last comic you’d want to hand off to the young superhero fan in your life.
