Robin Hood (Disney)

It’s been five whole years since we had a big feature film about Robin Hood, so at present there are multiple parties trying to bring us the next one. The latest to join the fray is Joby Harold, the guy behind Guy Ritchie’s upcoming King Arthur franchise.

Titled Robin Hood: Origins, Harold’s script will be (say it with me now) a gritty reinvention of the classic character. Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way is producing.  Read More »

Meagan Good in Deception

Fox’s Minority Report TV pilot has been busy over the past week, picking up three Precogs and a non-Precog lead. Laura Regan and Stark Sands (the latter in a dual role) will play the three clairvoyants, while Meagan Good plays a regular old human who gets involved with them.

The trio join Li Jun Li, who plays a CSI technician, and Daniel London, who reprises the role of Wally the Caretaker from the 2002 movie. More on the Minority Report casting after the jump.  Read More »

Lego Star Wars series

One of the original conceits behind Star Wars was that the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 were the characters that tied everything together, and through whose “eyes” the stories were told. That’s not quite how it worked out, because the human characters turned out to be a lot more interesting. But the droids were always around, and now they’ll really take center stage in a Disney XD series called Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales. Yeah, that’s a Lego Star Wars series, conceived as a limited animated show with five 22-minute episodes that will air later in 2015.

The idea here is interesting: Droid Tales will re-tell the stories of the first six Star Wars films, this time directly through the voices of C-3PO and R2-D2. That’s all part of a new story, which will be the first official post-Return of the Jedi tale in the newly defined canon continuity before The Force Awakens opens in December. Read More »

Black Widow Age of Ultron header

The first official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was a big mess of characters and details, but the character posters are a lot more clean. It helps that the posters only have to focus on one character each — in this latest case, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow.

(These originally looked like they could be something along the lines of the concept art drop from Comic Con last summer, which assembled into one large image. But they clearly don’t fit together as currently released, despite having a common background theme.)

We’ll continue to post the Age of Ultron character posters as they arrive. For now, see all of the released Avengers: Age of Ultron character posters below.

Today is the last installment of our extensive interview with screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli, After Earth). Promoting the pre-order of his first novel, Abomination, Whitta talked to us not only about his career thus far, but the future and unproduced projects that haven’t happened.

Powers

What happens to a superhero when you take away his powers? It’s a question that’s been asked countless times in comic books, and it’ll be asked again in Powers, the first original scripted series from PlayStation.

Sharlto Copley plays former superhero Christian Walker. After losing his abilities, he becomes a cop specializing in cases involving superpowers. He feels kind of conflicted about this, as you might imagine, but in the new trailer he seems to have made some kind of peace with it. Watch the new Powers trailer after the jump. Read More »

Sam Nielson Toy Story Space Game

For every Disney project we see released, there are tons that never see the light of day. A new example for that list is an abandoned Toy Story video game that was going to be set in space.

So what did this mystery Toy Story in space game look like? Artist and animator Sam Nielson has put up some concept art for the game on online. Check out the Toy Story video game concept art below. Read More »

Jack Huston Now in Talks to Lead ‘The Crow’

Jack Huston the Crow

The remake of The Crow has turned into a revolving door for talent, with a parade of writers, directors, and actors being attached to the film in various capacities before falling off again. Most recently, F. Javier Gutiérrez was going to direct, with Luke Evans starring. But Gutiérrez fell away, and Corin Hardy signed on to direct. Not long afterwards Luke Evans also moved on, due in part to the change in scheduling and story approach that came with the director change.

Now Jack Huston, perhaps best known for his role as a scarred assassin on Boardwalk Empire, is in early talks to star. Read More »

Lord of the Rings theme park

Many groups of fantasy fans have places they can visit in order to play in their preferred world. Harry Potter fans have theme parks and museums. DC fans can go to Six Flags. Marvel and Star Wars are owned by Disney, so those will eventually be covered. But what about Lord of the Rings fans? Sure, they can go to New Zealand where Peter Jackson’s movies were filmed, but that’s more of a sightseeing trip. Where’s the action?

They action may be coming to Spain. The town of Rincon de la Victoria recently announced it will be building a theme part called “La Comarca,” which is a rough translation of The Shire. Read more about the Lord of the Rings theme park below. Read More »
