Legends of the Hidden Temple Trailer

Next month brings another one of Nickelodeon’s attempts to cash in on the nostalgia that children of the ’90s have as they’re now taking care of children of their own. The Legends of the Hidden Temple movie takes all the elements of the kids’ game show and incorporates them into an adventure movie where three kids end up stuck in an ancient temple and must overcome various obstacles in order to escape alive.

A new Legends of the Hidden Temple trailer really pushes the adventure side of the movie, opting not to have any of the kids speak and letting the only dialogue come from the giant talking stone head known as Olmec (played by the original voice actor Dee Bradley Baker), delivering one of his signature lines from the show. You can watch it below if you wish. The choice is yours and yours alone. Read More »

Enchanted 2 director

Before there were live-action remakes of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast and every other fairy tale in the Disney stable, there was Enchanted. The 2007 film was an affectionate sendup of Disney’s animated catalogue, plucking a stereotypical Disney cartoon princess played by Amy Adams and dropping her in the real world. The film was a huge hit, so naturally it wasn’t long before speculation began swirling about a possible sequel.

But it’s been a while since we’ve had any real updates on that front, which is why we’re intrigued to see that today, the sequel has finally taken a big step forward. Adam Shankman, the director behind Hairspray and Rock of Ages, is now in talks to direct the Enchanted sequel, which is now going by the title Disenchanted. Adams is expected to return as Giselle.  Read More »

ape meets girl harry potter print

We;ve gotten a bunch of Harry Potter posters and art over the last couple decades, including official poster art from Drew Struzan and book art from Olly Moss. So it comes as no easy accomplishment when I declare that this is the best piece of Harry Potter art that I’ve ever seen. The Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone print was created by a UK artist Kevin M Wilson, who goes by the pseudonym Ape Meets Girl. We’ve featured his work many times in the past on /Film; you might remember his JawsBack to the FutureWALL-EPeter PanIncredibles prints of the official IMAX poster for 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Max Steel

Open Road Films is set to release Max Steel on October 14th, 2016, based on the popular Mattel kids action figure line of toys. While the film was developed for the family friendly PG rating release, the MPAA ended up giving the movie a more restrictive PG-13 rating — this could be a financial nail of death for a film trying to attract audiences of younger children. The studio appealed the rating, but the Classification and Ratings Administration upheld their ruling.

Mary Poppins Returns details

When it was announced that Chicago director Rob Marshall would be helming a reboot of Mary Poppins, I wasn’t interested. Don’t get me wrong; I like the original Walt Disney adaptation quite a bit, but for me what makes the film is the music by the Sherman Brothers. And I was very skeptical that they would be able to recapture that magic, even with the pitch perfect casting of Emily Blunt as the titular hero.

But when it was revealed that Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda would be co-starring in a role similar to the one Dick Van Dyke played in the original, I finally got invested. If Lin-Manuel Miranda would be providing his songwriting skills for this Mary Poppins sequel, it could end up being something special.

And now Miranda is finally talking about the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel Mary Poppins Returns, giving us a little tease as to what we might expect. Hit the just to learn some new Mary Poppins Returns details.

The Simpsons season 28 Burns

The Simpsons is entering its 28th year, yet I still have new questions every time I see showrunner Al Jean at the Fox Television Critics Association party. Jean has been the show runner for 26 of the 28 years. He took two years to do the short-lived animated series The Critic, and may be the only other person besides myself who has watched every single episode of The Simpsons.

This year, Fox made some announcements during their TCA executive session. Amy Schumer is doing a voice role on all of their Sunday night animated shows, and The Simpsons will do their first ever one-hour episode. Read our interview with Al Jean below. Read More »
