Sony and Escape Artists are reviving He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, after the toy and cartoon property spent years in development hell. At one point recently, Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe Retaliation) was going to direct a script by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lone Ranger). Now Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow has been hired to re-write the film, and there is supposition that he could direct as well. Read More »

The big character reveal that some people probably wanted to avoid in the last full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 is front and center in this new one. So that’s a warning, but at this point, it seems like the studio is determined to give that particular point away. The trade-off is that this trailer for the film is absolutely gigantic, with a lot more information about precisely who and what Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and the dragon Toothless will be facing this time. The image above is a hint, and it also involves a sheep. That’s all you need to know — check out the new How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer below. Read More »

When I walked out of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first thing I said to someone was “After they release the other two movies, some fan will edit a cut of the three films into a great three hour movie.” Its funny how things change — with the Lord of the Rings films we were clamoring for extended editions, but now we think less is more (it may have something to do with the fact this is one and a half books stretched to three movies vs. three books adapted into three films).
We still haven’t gotten the third chapter of Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit adaptation, but some fan has edited the first two movies into a trailer for a mash-up movie titled The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey. Lets hope that once The Hobbit: There and Back Again is released, a good editor will combine the three adaptations into one three-hour-long movie cut. For now, you can watch the epic mash-up The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey embedded after the jump.

Briefly: Disney, known as the creator of the Magic Kingdom, is looking to the Magic Castle for a new film. The studio is developing an as-yet untitled movie featuring a strong magical component. In fact, a noted practitioner of card tricks and sleight of hand, Derek DelGaudio, is on board as a producer. DelGaudio is also recently spending the first half of 2014 as an artist in residence at Walt Disney Imagineering.
Keith Bunin, who wrote Ezekial Moss, the movie Phillip Seymour Hoffman planned to direct prior to his death, will script. There is little info available about the pitch that put the development in motion, but THR reports that the story will “tackle the history of magic’s last 100 years as seen through the eyes of one magician.”
Bunin is on a streak; in addition to Ezekial Moss, he adapted Joe Hill’s Horns into a film starring Daniel Radcliffe, and wrote the Dr. Seuss biopic that Johnny Depp may topline. He’s also got the script Standard Loneliness Package set at Fox Searchlight with John Krokidas to direct, and Skyjack at CBS films, with Will Gluck directing.
