The heated debate over Jon Snow’s fate on Game of Thrones has gotten so intense, even the President of the United States wants to know what’s going on. Unlike most fans, though, he has the clout to demand answers from a person who might actually know the answer.

Read Nutter’s Jon Snow Obama comments after the jump — plus an explanation of the truth behind the season’s other big question mark, Stannis Baratheon. Spoilers follow. Read More »

Duncan Jones is at Comic Con to promote Warcraft, and he’s got a few other things to say while talking about his upcoming third movie. Warcraft is very nearly done, with fewer than a dozen effects shots left to complete. And since the movie doesn’t release until June 2016, that leaves him with a lot of time until he has to hit the promo circuit. He’ll eventually get to work on a Warcraft sequel, and in fact he and Legendary have story ideas for two more movies.
What Jones seems most keen on doing, however, is filling the eleven months between now and the release of Warcraft by making another movie. Specifically, he hopes to finally shoot Mute, the future-set film he wrote several years ago and has called “a dark, dirty thriller.” Read More »

This December will mark the official 25th anniversary of Edward Scissorhands, easily one of the best films director Tim Burton has ever made. It represents a fond memory of a time when the filmmaker was still cooking up original stories for the big screen.
To honor this milestone anniversary, Fox Home Entertainment has a restored, special edition Blu-Ray hitting shelves in October. That’s a few months away, but it will be available for pre-order at Comic-Con this week, along with a limited edition lithograph created by Gallery 1988 artist Mark Englert. It’s a pretty wonderfil piece of work that you can see in full after the jump along with details on the Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary Blu-Ray. Read More »

Disney has been very busy refurbishing some of their older attractions. Last year Disney added new effects to Big Thunder Mountain, Alice in Wonderland and the Indiana Jones Adventure. This year already Disney has revamped a bunch of attractions, adding the Hatbox Ghost to the Haunted Mansion as well as adding new effects and an awesome new animatronic Yeti to Matterhorn (too bad the new vehicles kill your butt).
And the newest attraction to get refurbishment is Peter Pan’s Flight, one of my favorite rides in classic Fantasyland — I just love suspended dark ride vehicles, which is one of the reasons I love the Universal Studios’ ET Adventure ride. Walt Disney Imagineering has released a video showcasing the new additions to the attraction, giving us a behind the scenes peek into the thought and work that went into the new effects. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

Paul Thomas Anderson is writing a new movie, and it almost certainly isn’t anything you’re expecting. This isn’t a film of his own, but a for-hire gig working with the guy who nearly starred in Inherent Vice. Anderson will write a new draft of Pinocchio, the live-action film Robert Downey Jr. is pulling together based on the classic story of a wooden puppet who dreams of being a real boy. In addition, there’s a chance Anderson will end up directing as well. Get the details on the potential Paul Thomas Anderson Pinocchio project, below. Read More »
Even though the films of the Harry Potter franchise got considerably more mature and dangerous as they progressed, they never crossed into R-rated territory. That’s obviously because of the audience at which they were geared, but one can’t help but wonder what the wizarding film series would be like if it was pushed to be a little more adult.
No, we’re not talking about a porn parody, but instead, a more violent, even vulgar version of Harry Potter. Fine Brothers Entertainment have imagined what that would be like with an animated example of what Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone would have been liked if it had an R-rating. There’s cartoon blood and swearing, so it’s somewhat NSFW. Watch R-rated Harry Potter after the jump! Read More »
