Warcraft Sequel

Before Warcraft even hit theaters in the United States, box office analysts were already predicting that the video game adaptation from Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones wasn’t going to make much money domestically. However, Warcraft was already pulling in some serious bank overseas, and just a few weeks after hitting theaters around the world, it was already the most successful video game film of all time. And you know what that means.

In a post on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, the official social media account of the Warcraft movie came out and said that this first film is just the beginning, meaning that a Warcraft sequel is in the works. Read More »

Beauty and the Beast Teaser Trailer

Remakes sometimes elicit knee-jerk irritation from moviegoers tired of seeing the same dreck over and over. But when done right, they’re not so bad and can even be kind of great. And maybe no one is doing them better right now than Disney. The studio has been on a tear lately, dishing up new versions of CinderellaThe Jungle Book, and more for audiences and critics to gobble up. (They had a rare stumble with Alice Through the Looking Glass, but hey, it happens to the best of us.) The next film from their animated library to get the live-action treatment is Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the new Beauty and the new Beast.

The first Beauty and the Beast teaser hinted that the new film would be sticking with a traditional take on the fairy tale, and the first Beauty and the Beast poster suggests the same. Check out the first Beauty and the Beast poster below. Read More »

the dark tower movie

“The man in black fled across the city, and the iPhone cameras followed.” That should be the new opening line for The Dark TowerNikolaj Arcel‘s new movie based on Stephen King‘s bestselling fantasy series. Since production moved to New York, the internet has been flooded with photos of stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, taken by paparazzi and random passersby.

Today, producer Ron Howard got in on the fun as well, sharing a photo of himself with Arcel and Elba in full gunslinging gear. See the behind-the-scenes Dark Tower photo below.  Read More »

The Winds of Winter

For six seasons, the Starks have been warning us: “winter is coming.” In the Game of Thrones season 6 finale, winter finally, officially arrived. That’s bad news for the people of Westeros, because their winters last for years and also because there are a bunch of ice zombies eager to take over the continent. But it turns out the arrival of winter is not so great for us here in the real world, either.

Although HBO has yet to announce an official premiere date for Game of Thrones season 7, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have revealed that the production schedule is getting delayed so they can actually shoot in cold and gloomy weather. And since Game of Thrones season 7 is starting late, it’ll probably premiere late as well.  Read More »

brian cox game of thrones

If you are a slightly older actor from the United Kingdom capable of growing a fine beard and wearing a convincing scowl, there is a strong chance you have appeared on HBO’s Game of Thrones at some point. And if you haven’t appeared on Game of Thrones, it may be your fault for turning it down in the early days, before it was a gigantic hit that would put you in front of an audience of millions and millions of rabid fans who obsess over every episode.

Every so often, one of the actors who turned the show down speaks up, offering a glimpse at what could have been. Today, that slightly older actor from the United Kingdom capable of growing a fine beard and wearing a convincing scowl who turned down the show in its infancy is the great Brian Cox.

game of thrones fan theories

Game of Thrones season 6 concluded with a bang last week, killing off a significant portion of the cast and radically shifting the power structure of the entire show. With season seven set to begin filming soon and with George R.R. Martin’s sixth novel nowhere in sight, fans can only do one thing: wait. Oh, and talk. And speculate. And argue about fan theories. We’ve actually reached peak fan theory – my mother-in-law was grilling me about a few of the wackier ones this past week.

So let’s take a moment to look over the main fan theories currently buzzing around the internet following the conclusion of season 6. Some of these are plausible and others are infuriating, but we wouldn’t be Game of Thrones fans unless we were arguing about something.

Pete's Dragon TV Spot

Adding to the barrage of Disney’s remakes, late this summer comes a contemporary take on Pete’s Dragon, the film that blended animation with live-action all the way back in 1977. This looks like a magical update of the old movie from Ain’t Them Bodies Saints director with a performance from young star Oakes Fegley that feels like the kind of child actor that Steven Spielberg would have discovered. But will this movie have the same kind of heart and spirit of adventure of the director’s films? A new Pete’s Dragon TV spot is certainly reassuring, complete with a nice little song to guide us. Watch it below. Read More »

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2

We’re still a little under five months away from seeing how the Harry Potter cinematic universe expands with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The spin-off takes place about 80 years before the events of the Harry Potter film franchise, but this time over in the wizarding world of the United States. From the beginning, the film was said to be the beginning of a hopeful trilogy, and now we have further confirmation that’s still the plan. Read More »

Battle of the Bastards

During the fifth season of Game of ThronesRepo Men director Miguel Sapochnik left a huge impression with “Hardhome.” HBO and the key talent involved with the series were clearly impressed enough to invite Sapochnik back to direct two of season six’s biggest episodes, “Battle of the Bastards” and the season finale, “The Winds of Winter.”

As with “Hardhome,” both episodes left fans buzzing. The major set piece in “Battle of the Bastards” is a high mark for the series — a brutal, unrelenting battle that’s pure chaos. The finale doesn’t feature a set piece as large in scope, but its opening sequence and pivotal character moments are just as grand to watch unfold as the battle in “Battle of the Bastards,” which Sapochnik refers to as “BOB.”

We were lucky enough to ask the director a couple of questions via email about the two episodes he directed. It should go without saying, but just in case: SPOILERS are ahead. Below, read our Miguel Sapochnik interview.
