Asa Butterfield in X plus Y

It was probably just a matter of time before Asa Butterfield caught Tim Burton‘s eye. The kid just looks like a Tim Burton character, with his pale skin, dark hair, skinny limbs, and big eyes. And now he may get to be one for real, as Burton is looking to cast him in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Should Butterfield close his deal, he’ll join Eva Green, who previously starred in Burton’s Dark Shadows. Hit the jump for more on Burton’s desire to get Asa Butterfield for Miss Peregrine.

Floors movie

Disney is pretty stacked when it comes to established franchises. The studio has Star Wars, Marvel Studios, Pirates of the Caribbean, Frozen, Cars, and a bunch of others. That’s their bread and butter. But they’re always looking for the next one and may have just found it.

Disney has acquired the rights to Patrick Carman‘s children’s series, Floors. It’s basically Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory set a hotel, and follows a young boy is forced to save a madcap business, with new surprises on every floor, when the owner goes missing. Jason Filardi (17 Again, Bringing Down the House) pitched the series to the studio and will write the script. Read more about the Floors movie and even watch some videos below. Read More »

Peaky Blinders on Netflix

Here we have news on two very different series coming from Netflix. First: the streaming service has picked up rights to the BBC series Peaky Blinders, which adds Tom Hardy to its second season roster this fall. We hadn’t known when we’d see the new season in the States, so it’s great to know that we can soon see Peaky Blinders on Netflix.

And then the company has also picked up rights to the ’80s kids property Popples, which will be developed as an animated series. More info on both is below. Read More »

Tokyo Tribe

I want you to go get a piece or paper or open the Notes program on your phone and write down two words: Tokyo Tribe. You’re going to want tangible proof you knew about one of the craziest, most surprising, surreal fun films of the year well before anyone else.

Tokyo Tribe is directed by Shion Sono, a director whose films (Love Exposure, Cold Fish) are usually pretty brutal. For the most part, this one isn’t. In fact, it’s the opposite. Tokyo Tribe is a hip hop musical about gang wars in Tokyo filled with sex, action, rapping and more rapping. Think Les Miserables if it were populated by The Warriors, who acted like they were in a kung-fu version of Beat Street, with the visual aesthetic of Spring Breakers. Set in an Eighties. That almost describes Tokyo Tribe, a film I loved to no end. Read More »
