One year ago, 20th Century Fox began their marketing campaign for the adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by delivering a Loop Day teaser. That was back when the movie was intended to be released this past spring. However, now that the film is situated for release at the end of the month, we can celebrate the unique holiday from the fantasy story again today, as if we’ve just had our own little loop.
For those who don’t know what Loop Day is, a new Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children clip has just arrived online to explain what this holiday is all about. Honestly, the holiday is actually simultaneously fascinating and a bit depressing. Find out what this special day is all about by watching the Miss Peregrine Loop Day clip below. Read More »

The fact that a film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has finished filming and it currently being edited for an early 2017 release date still amazes me. Just two years ago, this project looked completely and totally dead, the victim of an overly ambitious cross-media plan and budgetary constraints. And now, I can write an article that can include a picture of Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger at the top. This blows my mind.
From 2010 through 2015, Ron Howard was steering The Dark Tower alongside his producing partner Brian Grazer, eventually handing the project over to director Nikolaj Arcel. However, Howard and Grazer remained on board as producers and they’ve spilled their guts in a fantastic new interview where they explain the long journey to getting this movie off the ground.

Update: Warner Bros has released the following statement in response to these reports: “’Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film.”
Back in July, Warner Bros. Pictures filed a trademark for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. This might not seem surprising since the film studio was the distributor of every single film in the Harry Potter franchise, as well as the upcoming spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. However, Warner Bros. has absolutely nothing to do with the stage production of the play in the United Kingdom, which was also just published as a book at the end of last month. So having them file a trademark for motion pictures, merchandise and more seemed rather unnecessary, unless of course they were actually planning to make a movie.
Now a new rumor seems to indicate that Warner Bros. Pictures would like to turn Harry Potter and the Cursed Child into a film trilogy that they hope to begin as early as 2020. In addition, they want to bring franchise star Daniel Radcliffe back in the lead role. Find out more about the proposed Harry Potter and the Cursed Child movie trilogy after the jump. Read More »

King Arthur is having a moment. Next year sees him getting the Guy Ritchie treatment in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and cozying up to alien robots in Transformers: The Last Knight. Now we may also see him hit the small screen, albeit in a slightly different form than we’re used to. Fox is developing Camelot, which reimagines the legendary medieval ruler as a graffiti artist(!) who teams with his cop ex-girlfriend Gwen(!!) to battle modern crime and ancient magic(!!!).

It looks like Game of Thrones landing Ian McShane for a guest spot in season six was just the beginning of a welcome new trend. The extraordinary Jim Broadbent has joined the cast of HBO’s still popular, still excellent fantasy series and will play a “significant” role in the seventh season.

We are excited to exclusively premiere The Bottleneck Gallery’s first officially licensed Lord of the Rings print by artist Karl Fitzgerald. Bottleneck has apparently signed a deal with Warner Bros, and will also be working on future prints based on their DC film properties as well (exciting). We haven’t featured any of Fitzgerald’s word in the past, but judging from this beautiful print he is an artist to watch out for. Hit the jump now to see the regular and variant art for this Lord of the Rings print by Karl Fitzgerald.

Duncan Jones‘ first cut of Warcraft was two hours and forty minutes long. Around the time of the film’s release, the director made it sound like most of what was cut was removed for good reason, but there were some trims made that possibly weakened the film. We’ll see some of these extended/deleted scenes on the Blu-ray next month, but any World of Warcraft fans hoping to one day purchase an extended version of the fantasy film are sadly out of luck.
Below, learn why you’ll never see a Warcraft director’s cut. Read More »
