Sofia Coppola directing The Bling Ring

Nobody wants to see a Sofia Coppola movie influenced by a committee, including Sofia Coppola. The filmmaker behind Lost in Translation and this week’s The Beguiled was going to make her biggest movie yet with The Little Mermaid, but she exited the project once she realized her vision wasn’t going to go untouched by Universal. “We didn’t agree creatively about how to do it, so I didn’t want to continue,” she said back in 2015.

While promoting her new (and very good) film, Coppola shared a few new details about the experience and what she had in mind for the project. Below, learn more about Sofia Coppola’s The Little Mermaid vision.

Game of Thrones season 7 trailer

HBO has released a brand new trailer for their mega-hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, and the network has officially outdone themselves this time. The show no longer looks like a TV show: it’s clearly moved into the huge budget blockbuster territory. I’ve grown numb to people claiming that things are “epic” over the past few years, but there truly is no other word that does this trailer justice. Winter is definitely here.

the dark tower trailer

Longtime fans of Stephen King’s lengthy seven-book saga The Dark Tower weren’t exactly thrilled with the film adaptation’s first trailer. Instead of being a straightforward retelling of The Gunslinger, the first story in King’s saga, director Nikolaj Arcel’s movie picks and chooses aspects from multiple books in the series, leaving fans wondering what they’re in for when the movie finally hits theaters.

Now Arcel has confirmed something King himself hinted at over a year ago: The Dark Tower movie is actually a continuation of the story that began in King’s novels. Read on to find out more, but beware – spoilers lie ahead.

warcraft images

Despite being the most successful video game movie of all time, it doesn’t seem like Duncan Jones‘ film adaptation of the mega-popular game Warcraft is going to be getting a sequel – even though one was briefly teased by the movie’s official Chinese social media account last year. There’s still a tiny sliver of possibility, but in case Jones never gets the opportunity to tell his follow-up story, he told a group of fans last night about his plans for what his version of Warcraft 2 would have been about.

american-gods-easter-wednesday 2

(Each week, we’ll kick off our discussion of American Gods by answering one simple question: which character do we worship this week?)

“What do you believe?”

After an episode that took a break from the main storyline, “Come to Jesus” returned to Shadow and Mr. Wednesday…and Anansi and Bilquis and the New Gods. American Gods concluded it’s first season with a bang, with a show of strength from the Old Gods and an official declaration of war from the New Gods. Mr. Nancy told us in episode two, and again at the beginning of episode eight that “Angry gets shit done.” With that as the battle cry for the season, American Gods showed us how dangerous these colorful characters can be and left us with the questions of not only what this war will do to the gods, but what will it mean for the rest of America.

Game of Thrones - Kit Harington as Jon Snow

Season six of HBO’s mega-hit fantasy series Game of Thrones finally answered a question that fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels had been speculating about for years: the identity of Jon Snow’s true parents. But a popular publication may have just confirmed something else that’s been the subject of speculation for years: Jon Snow’s real name.

Big Trouble in Little China comic

Big Trouble in Little China celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, but it seems like 2017 is the year that will see the film thrust back into the spotlight. There’s a new board game based on the film coming along and now a new comic book sequel is on the way that continues the story of Kurt Russell’s Jack Burton. Here’s the best part, though: director John Carpenter is co-writing the Big Trouble in Little China comic. Read on to find out everything we know about it so far.

Game of Thrones may be premiering in the hot months of summer this year, but after years of solemn looks and ominous warnings, winter is finally here. Some new photos from the upcoming season have arrived and we get to see new looks at our favorite kings, queens, schemers, and sidekicks as they prepare for The Great War against the Night’s King and the White Walkers.

a midsummer night's dream trailer

In William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the pompous actor Bottom has his head transformed into that of a donkey by the mischievous sprite known as Puck (or Robin Goodfellow, depending on how specific you want to get). Much hilarity ensues as Titania, the Queen of the Fairies, falls in love with him after being drugged with a love potion. Shakespeare’s funniest play is also his weirdest.

However, it seem that the new film version of the immortal comedy has decided that Bottom’s transformation into an “ass” should be taken literally. Which is why actor Fran Kranz can be seen with a big ‘ol butt for a head in the trailer.
