Doctor Strange 2 Director - Scott Derrickson

Doctor Strange is officially out of theaters, and it racked up an impressive $675.8 million at the worldwide box office. It’s going to make even more now that it’s available to download on Digital HD, and next week it will be available on Blu-ray and DVD too. Despite the film’s success though, Marvel Studios has been quiet about any plans they might have for a sequel. That’s not stopping Benedict Cumberbatch from letting us know who he’d like to direct a follow-up.

Deliver Us from Evil and Sinister director Scott Derrickson made quite the leap in his career by taking on his first blockbuster tentpole with Doctor Strange. Apparently Derrickson’s work on the film was impressive enough to convince Benedict Cumberbatch that the director should be brought back behind the camera for Doctor Strange 2. Read More »

Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Long Haul Trailer

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid film franchise was one that families enjoyed for three years – there was Diary of a Wimpy Kid in 2010, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules in 2011 and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days in 2012. But it’s been five years since the last movie, so the young cast members who played lead characters Greg (Zachary Gordon) and his best friend Rowley (Robert Capron) are too old to keep the series going. That means we’re basically getting a franchise reboot with a whole new cast.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul continues to follow the adventures of Greg Heffley (now played by Jason Drucker) and his whole family, including his brother Rodrick (Charlie Wright), mother Susan (Alicia Silverstone), father Frank (Tom Everett Scott), and baby brother Manny (played by twins Wyatt & Dylan Walters). Oh, and Rowley is still around, this time played by Owen Asztalos.

Logan - Patrick Stewart Retiring from X-Men Movies

The early buzz on Logan is not only is it the best solo outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine (by leaps and bounds), but it’s one of the best X-Men movies ever made. Hugh Jackman was so dedicated to make this the Wolverine movie fans have wanted for years, he knew this had to be his last outing as the iconic mutant. As he’s been making the publicity rounds for the movie, he’s not even leaving the window open for a possible team up with Deadpool.

On the other end of the spectrum, Sir Patrick Stewart has been saying that he’s not yet ready to retire from playing Professor X in the X-Men franchise. But as the publicity tour for the movie has gone on, it appears the actor has had a change of heart. Sir Patrick Stewart announced himself that he’s retiring from the X-Men franchise, making Logan his last turn as Charles Xavier.

Shadow of Truth Trailer

Netflix subscribers love to binge watch new shows, and one of the more addicting additions to the streaming service’s library was the true crime docuseries Making a Murderer. It sparked endless debates, constant speculation, and the case has had several updates since the documentary sparked further examination into the story at the center of the series. While waiting for the second season of Making a Murderer, which could arrive later this year, there might be a new obsession Netflix subscribers can check out.

Shadow of Truth is a true crime docuseries that has already been well-received in Israel as one of the most popular and critically acclaimed shows in the country’s history. Now, it’s coming to the United States. The series focuses on the homicide of a teenage girl and the man who confessed to the murder. It sounds pretty cut and dry, but many believe the convicted killer is innocent, and the series follows the evidence and theories about what really happened.

nicholas hoult x-men supernova

There are days when the nonsensical continuity of the X-Men movies makes me want to throw my hands up in the air and move into the desert and stop writing about comic book movies and there are days where I just shrug it all off because I’ll always take interesting experiments like Logan, Legion, and Deadpool over a coherent universe. Today, I feel like the latter, so it’s just amusing that Nicholas Hoult, who has starred in three X-Men movies, is only pretty sure that he’s in the next film that’s supposed to begin production this year. It’s good to know that the actors, like audience members, also aren’t quite sure what’s going on.

uncharted movie

UPDATED: It seems that Joe Carnahan consulted with Amy Hennig (the head writer and creative director on the first three Uncharted games who is no longer with Naughty Dog) and Nolan North (the actor who plays Nathan Drake in the games) on the screenplay. Take from that what you will.

The original article follows below.

After years of wandering through the deserts of development hell, it’s starting to look like Sony’s Uncharted movie may become a reality. Shawn Levy is planning to direct, and Joe Carnahan has finished the screenplay, which he says will be R-rated and full of big, crazy action. However, there’s one group apparently not involved in the film at all: developer Naughty Dog, who oversaw the creation of the entire Uncharted video game series, has no idea what’s going on with the movie.

Is This The Origin of The Knights of Ren?

Knights of Ren Origins

Here at /Film, most of us are more than casual fans of Star Wars. In addition to watching the movies, we try to absorb anything and everything regarding the Star Wars universe, and that includes the trilogy of books that began just before The Force Awakens was released in 2015. Chuck Wendig began the book series with Aftermath, continued with Aftermath: Life Debt and concluded with Aftermath: Empire’s End, which just hit shelves a few days ago.

Even though Aftermath: Empire’s End has only been on shelves for a few days, many fans have already devoured it, and they’ve found some interesting tidbits in addition to the main plot, which fills in the gaps between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens (including details on what characters like Lando Calrissian and Jar Jar Binks have been up to). Throughout the books, many believe there are hints as to the origins of the Knights of Ren, the dark side organization mentioned by Supreme Leader Snoke in The Force Awakens. Find out what new details Aftermath: Empire’s End offers on that front after the jump. Read More »

‘Fargo’ Season 3 Teaser Declares War on Christmas

fargo season 3 teaser

Every article about FX’s Fargo series has to begin with the observation that this series had no right to work as well as it does, so here we go: FX’s Fargo series has no right to work as well as it does and creator/showrunner Noah Hawley can probably be filed away for future reference under “miracle worker.” And because two acclaimed seasons of pitch black comedy, criminal idiocy, and startling violence (not to mention 36 Emmy nominations) are not enough, the show is set to return in just a few months. And the first teaser has arrived.
