For people of a certain age, the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine were the introduction to reading, and to horror, and probably to many other things. Now there’s a Goosebumps movie, with Jack Black as the lead, playing a fictionalized version of Stine himself, and Jillian Bell, Amy Ryan, Ken Marino, and Kumail Nanjiani playing characters who end up touched by the not-so-fictional world and creatures created by the writer. Check out the Goosebumps trailer below. Read More »

Steven Spielberg big screen adaptation of Robopocalypse has been in the works for years now. The script was being developed by Spielberg and Drew Goddard based on the Daniel H. Wilson novel. Actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were all said to be in line for roles in the film about “a global war between man and machine.” In 2012 it was supposed to be the filmmaker’s next movie, but in early 2013 the film was pushed back to development status with no indication of what the future might hold.
We’ve gotten numerous updates on the big blockbuster film over the years, all of which insist that Spielberg will eventually get to the movie, someday. We’ve even gotten a glimpse at possible storyboards for robot chase sequence from the film. Today, we get another glimpse at the movie, in the form of concept art. Hit the jump to take a look.

UPDATE: Alas, the A Series of Unfortunate Events teaser trailer has been revealed as a fake. Original story follows.
Last year, we got the very fortunate news that Netflix was fast-tracking a series based on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. For fans, that meant a second chance to see the beloved books brought to life, following the little-loved 2004 movie starring Jim Carrey.
It’ll be a little while yet before we see if this attempt pans out any better than the last one did. But the first promo, at least, is very promising, with a deliciously creepy vibe that should feel familiar to book readers. Watch the A Series of Unfortunate Events teaser trailer after the jump.

No global brand is safe from Hollywood. The latest iconic character to get the big screen treatment comes from Japan as the lifestyle Sanrio has struck a movie deal for their popular creation Hello Kitty to hit cinemas around the world sometime in 2019.
The brand can be seen all over the world, turned into stuffed animals, backpacks, shirts, and there’s been several animated television series geared towards kids. So it was inevitable that the character would jump to the big screen. Find out more about the Hello Kitty movie after the jump. Read More »

Before Disney brought John Carter to movie theaters, resulting in one of the biggest box office bombs in recent memory, the film was in development at Paramount Pictures. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow director Kerry Conran was attached to direct the adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough‘s classic sci-fi novel John Carter of Mars, but it never came to fruition before the rights lapsed and ended up at the House of Mouse.
But for anyone who has ever wondered what this first iteration of John Carter of Mars might have looked like, a presentation reel has surfaced online with some very impressive designs that would have been awesome to see on the big screen. Watch the John Carter pitch reel after the jump! Read More »

It’s been a long road for the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s period romance/horror remix Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get made, but the film will arrive in theaters next February.
So far we’ve only seen a brief glimpse of the Regency era zombie flick, but now some new photos have debuted online showing off the deadly corset-wearing ladies of the film and just a hint of the zombie mayhem that will invade the fancy setting. And if you’re expecting a campy mix of zombie action and Jane Austen’s classic, apparently that’s not the case.

Video: Imagineers Take Us On A Tour Of The Updated Magical Effects In Disneyland’s Peter Pan’s Flight

Disney has been very busy refurbishing some of their older attractions. Last year Disney added new effects to Big Thunder Mountain, Alice in Wonderland and the Indiana Jones Adventure. This year already Disney has revamped a bunch of attractions, adding the Hatbox Ghost to the Haunted Mansion as well as adding new effects and an awesome new animatronic Yeti to Matterhorn (too bad the new vehicles kill your butt).
And the newest attraction to get refurbishment is Peter Pan’s Flight, one of my favorite rides in classic Fantasyland — I just love suspended dark ride vehicles, which is one of the reasons I love the Universal Studios’ ET Adventure ride. Walt Disney Imagineering has released a video showcasing the new additions to the attraction, giving us a behind the scenes peek into the thought and work that went into the new effects. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.
