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 »

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.
