Between Shredder and Baxter Stockman and Bebop and Rocksteady, you’d think our heroes in a half shell would have more than enough to contend with already. But apparently the filmmakers behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows didn’t think so, because they’re also throwing Krang into the mix. Earlier reports indicated that Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen would voice the squishy pink alien, but now Armisen’s out and Brad Garrett will be stepping up instead. Read More »
Justin Lin (Star Trek: Beyond) helped to reinvigorate the Fast & Furious brand in a big way. Lin, who has directed four sequels in the franchise, took the series to the next level with Fast Five, the most enjoyable sequel in the series up until that point. The Fast & Furious movies became more popular, more successful, and more enjoyable, in large part thanks to Lin, who established a new tone and broadened the franchise’s scope. He opted out of directing Furious 7, but the Better Luck Tomorrow director might return to, as Vin Diesel says, “finish what you started.”
Learn more about the potential Furious 10 director below.

In 2010, Kirby Ferguson created a video essay called Everything is a Remix, about how it’s not just Quentin Tarantino, but every single artist (authors, musicians or filmmakers) who borrows something old to make something new. The video essay spawned a series of essays, which was later combined into an almost 40 minute long documentary (which you can watch here).
Ferguson has returned once again with a new Everything is a Remix video essay, this time focusing not just on Star Wars: The Force Awakens but also the overall storytelling career of JJ Abrams. The video isn’t just a visualization of all the complaints we’ve heard about Force Awakens being a rehash of A New Hope (we’ve already seen that before), but a serious look into the screenwriter, director and producer’s filmography, as well as an examination of how Abrams copies, transforms and combines his stories to create his art. But it also asks: is the remix method growing stale and have we hit the limits of remixing?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The film version of The Dark Tower has been filming for a few weeks now and everywhere you look, fans are filled with a strange combination of enthusiasm and dread. Enthusiasm because after years and years of being trapped in development hell, Stephen King‘s messy-but-magnificent fantasy/horror/science fiction series is being made into a movie. Dread because the movie director Nikolaj Arcel is shooting looks like a very loose adaptation of the books.
But what if there’s a reason for this being a loose adaptation? What if the film happens to be more than just a basic adaptation and may very well add to the Dark Tower mythos in an intriguing way? Stephen King himself has now seemingly implied this, but the details will be spoilers for anyone who hasn’t read the books.
Seriously. Huge book spoilers lurk below. C’mon, don’t be that person who ignores the spoiler warning and gets mad about it.

Here’s the thing about rumors that begin with The Daily Mail – you probably shouldn’t believe them. This is an outlet that tends to get things wrong, to exaggerate, to paint inaccurate pictures, etc. They have a long history of this, especially when it comes to the James Bond movies. For every accurate morsel, there are a few stories that feel completely fabricated by sources who actually know nothing.
With that said, it’s time to address the latest James Bond rumor sweeping the internet like a wildfire started with a Q Branch gadget: certain people are now saying that Daniel Craig is done playing the character and has turned down a gigantic payday to return as 007.

Stop right here if you think this post has any leaked information or rumors from sources, because it does not. The following post is just my humble speculation about what the title of Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars Episode VIII could possibly be and when we might expect an announcement. Its all obsessive nerdery, so leave now if that doesn’t sound worth reading.

Back in September of 2014, news surfaced that Dwayne Johnson would star in The Janson Directive, based on the novel of the same name from The Bourne Identity author Robert Ludlum. The project just so happened to be set up at Universal Pictures, the home of the Jason Bourne film franchise, which made the opportunity for a crossover easily possible. Thankfully, Universal isn’t trying to expand the world of Jason Bourne again, but they are looking to create a new cinematic universe.
The Janson Directive will be the first in a series of films based on Robert Ludlum novels that all take place in the same universe, and Universal has already assembled a team to shepherd the new endeavor. Find out more about the Robert Ludlum cinematic universe after the jump. Read More »
