Warcraft image

Director Duncan Jones‘ adaptation of Blizzard’s World of Warcraft opens in theaters two weeks from today. Unfortunately, the initial reviews for Warcraft are mostly negative. In spite of the early critical reaction, so far the fantasy film is exceeding expectations at the foreign box-office. Warcraft is expected to make over $30M overseas this weekend, making more money than Alice Through the Looking Glass in some territories.

We’ll soon see how the film fares domestically, but in the meantime, Legendary Pictures has released two Warcraft prints made by Kevin Tong, who’s collaborated with the production company in the past.

tom hiddleston james bond

No movie series in history inspires tabloid-y reports and rumors and mass pop culture hysteria quite like the James Bond films and that hysteria always reaches peak levels of crazy when it’s time to recruit a new actor to slip on that tuxedo. Right now, the future of 007 is awash in rumor and mystery – it’s almost impossible to tell what is true, what is false, and what resides in that gray line separating them.

But the rumor mill has been busy. First, it claimed that Tom Hiddleston was being eyed by the Bond producers to take over the role. Then, it claimed Daniel Craig turned down $100 million to return for his fifth (and presumably final) Bond movie. Now, we’ve come full circle with an intriguing report that says Hiddleston isn’t just on a wish list – he’s in “advanced negotiations” to play the most famous action hero of all time.

skyscraper movie

On the surface, a report about Dwayne Johnson signing on to star in another big action movie is about as unsurprising as movie news can get. Of course The Rock has joined another new movie because that’s what The Rock does – he fills every square inch of his available schedule with another movie he wants to shoot. However, it’s the little details that make Skyscraper sound like an interesting project to keep your eye on. Not because of plot (details are scarce), but because this is one of those films that sounds like it will be carefully constricted to appeal to an international audience. This is what the future of mainstream moviemaking looks like.

During the press rounds for the last James Bond installment, Spectre, Daniel Craig didn’t sound enthusiastic about the prospect of playing the iconic spy again. Physically, it’s an exhausting role, and considering how long these films take to make, it’s understandable the actor has been cautious about returning to the role, despite being under contract for one more sequel.

Recently we’ve heard more rumors insisting the actor is finished with the character. Now, another rumor has cropped up, claiming that Jamie Bell (Turn: Washington’s Spies) has had discussions about playing the new James Bond.

Big Trouble Remake

A year ago we learned that The Rock would be starring in a big screen remake of Big Trouble In Little China, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. Sometimes when you don’t hear about a film project for a long time you just assume that it could have fallen into development heck. I thought this might be the case with The Rock’s Big Trouble remake, especially since the action star keeps getting attached to so many new projects, like the Jumanji remake and the Robert Ludlum cinematic universe. I mean, how much time does this man have?

But according to Dwayne Johnson, the film is still in the works. Find out what The Rock said, after the jump.
