The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Sony never intended to stop with just The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The hope was that the film would kick off a whole franchise, with subsequent films based on the other books in Stieg Larsson‘s Millennium series. But the 2011 release didn’t do quite as well as anticipated, and then there was some question of whether Daniel Craig and David Fincher would return, and, well, fast forward to 2015 and even Rooney Mara has given up hope.

Until, that is, today. The studio is finally getting the ball rolling on a Dragon Tattoo sequel, four years after the original hit theaters. However, it won’t quite be the film we were expecting. Sony is looking to adapt The Girl in the Spider’s Web, not The Girl Who Played With Fire. What’s more, Fincher and his original cast aren’t returning — as of now, word is Alicia Vikander is the top choice to replace Rooney Mara.  Read More »

Jennifer Aniston in What Alice Forgot

The last two really good movies Jennifer Aniston was in are The Break-Up and Friends With Money. Both films are almost ten years old. Since then, she’s appeared in quite a few broad comedy hits, but few movies that show what she’s fully capable of. Fortunately, we may see Jennifer Aniston in What Alice Forgot, a literary adaptation for which she is in talks to star.

alias character poster

There are many reasons you should have Marvel‘s upcoming Netflix series Jessica Jones on your radar, but one of them is the inclusion of David Tennant as Zebediah Kilgrave, a.k.a. the Purple Man. Although not as famous as other comic book villains, he’s one the creepiest foes to ever haunt the pages of the Marvel Universe, using his ability to make anyone obey his commands to frequently unsettling effect. He won’t be the first villain the former Doctor Who star has played, but he could be the nastiest one yet.

A new character poster and a new image featuring Tennant as the character have arrived and they tease a version of the character who has been slightly tweaked from his comic book counterpart. Check out the new Jessica Jones character poster (and more!) after the jump.

assassin's creed set photo

Assassin’s Creed is filming right now and we have our fingers crossed that it’ll be the movie that finally breaks the dreaded video game adaptation curse. Seriously. We’re due for a decent movie based on a video game. If a science-fiction historical epic starring Michael Fassbender and directed by Justin Kurzel isn’t something worth watching, then everyone had better just give up trying to adapt games into films in the first place.

The first photo from the set has arrived and it’s not going to sway anyone’s opinions in any way. However, it may be of interest to already initiated fans, as there are just enough interesting elements present here to get a discussion rolling.

Check out the Assassin’s Creed set photo below.

Into the Badlands clip

The jury’s still out on whether AMC’s Into the Badlands looks cool or cheesy (actually, it kind of seems like it’s both), but the one thing we can be sure of is that it won’t skimp on the action. Last night, the network released a nearly four-minute clip showing off the martial arts prowess of its lead character Sunny, a mysterious warrior played by Daniel Wu. Be warned that there’s some pretty noisy violence on display here. Watch the Into the Badlands clip after the jump.  Read More »
