Sherlock Special (2)

To those who may be mourning the absence of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss‘ modern adaptation of Sherlock, here’s some good news. No, it’s not that more Sherlock episodes are on the way (although further installments still remain a distant possibility in the future), it’s that the pair of writers will reunite for a new TV show centered on a different character from classical literature: Bram Stoker’s iconic vampire Dracula. Read on to discover everything we know about the new show so far.

Beauty and the Beast Home Video

Back before Disney’s live-action remake of their 1992 animated adaptation Beauty and the Beast hit theaters, Honest Trailers delivered a mockery of the contemporary classic musical from the House of Mouse. But now that the updated version of Beauty and the Beast is available on home video, Honest Trailers has returned to give Emma Watson and Dan Stevens a hard time.

Cannonball Run Remake

A remake of the 1981 action comedy Cannonball Run has been in the works for years. The last update we heard on the project had Get Hard director and Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen writing and directing. But it appears that deal never came to fruition, as a new director and pair of writers have been brought on board the project.

Flatliners Remake Trailer

If Netflix’s The Discovery wasn’t quite what you were hoping for in a movie that explores what happens after we die, maybe the remake of the 1990 thriller Flatliners will make up for it.

Ellen Page (Juno), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nina Dobrev (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), James Norton (Happy Valley) and Kiersey Clemons (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) star in the remake of Joel Schumacher’s film, taking on the roles originated by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. They are five medical students who learn about what lies beyond mortality when they stop each others’ heart for a few minutes at a time before immediately resuscitate them. What starts as an almost indescribable thrill that seems to have a positive impact on their brain slowly turns into a nightmare as they are each haunted by something tragic from their past.

James Mangold directing The Wolverine

James Mangold (Logan) will direct a remake of a French-Belgian movie not enough people saw in 2015, Disorder. It’s a very good and very atmospheric and sparse thriller from director Alice Winocour. Last year, screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) was tapped to write the American remake for Sony. After the script crossed Mangold’s desk, he signed up immediately to direct the film, which sounds like it’ll take some significant departures from the original.

Below, learn more about the Disorder remake.

Bride of Frankenstein

While the reviews for The Mummy haven’t been kind so far, Universal has gone all-in on their Dark Universe plans, which will unite all of their classic monsters in a Marvel-style cinematic universe. It remains to be seen if Tom Cruise fighting the Egyptian undead will pack theaters this weekend, but director Alex Kurtzman, one of the franchise’s stewards, is already doing his part to make sure everyone knows that there is more on the way – he’s talking up the upcoming Bride of Frankenstein.

Specifically, he’s calling the screenplay for the remake of the 1935 classic “brilliant” and promising a “relatable” relationship between Frankenstein’s monster and his bride.

The Mummy Trailer

Last night brought the first round of press screenings for The Mummy, the first film in Universal’s ambitious Dark Universe franchise that will see remakes of classic monster movies from the studio’s history, including The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, as well as recently announced additions The Phantom of the Opera and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

With a lot riding on its shoulders, how does The Mummy fare not just as the start of a major franchise, but as a new vehicle for Tom Cruise? Well, the reviews don’t have many kind things to say, which doesn’t bode well for the Dark Universe, despite Universal’s confidence in the franchise.

The Mummy Clips

The blockbuster summer season just keeps marching forward. Now that Wonder Woman has hit theaters and exceeded even the higher opening weekend box office predictions, it’s time to look forward to what’s coming next weekend.

The big release for the weekend of June 9 will be The Mummy, the horror action adventure combo that is meant to kick off Universal’s ambitious plan to create the Dark Universe that they made such a big deal about officially announcing recently. Tom Cruise stars in the remake of the classic monster movie that still looks like more action than horror, and leading up the film’s release in just a few days, Universal has released a batch of clips to entice audiences. The only problem is they don’t instill much confidence in the flick.

Ghostbusters Reshoots

It’s been almost a year since the Ghostbusters reboot hit theaters, and even though it garnered solid reviews (landing a 73% at Rotten Tomatoes and a little less impressive score of 60 at Metacritic), it only pulled in $229 million on a budget of $144  million, making it far from a big enough hit to warrant a sequel.

Since the movie’s release, there has been plenty of discussion about where the movie went wrong, but now Ghostbusters franchise creator, writer, producer and star Dan Ayrkoyd has spoken out about where he thinks the reboot (which he also produced) had problems. While speaking on the British morning show Sunday Brunch, Dan Aykroyd reiterated that he was happy with how the movie turned out, but placed blame for troubles behind the scenes, especially costly reshoots, on the shoulders of director Paul Feig.

Beauty and the Beast Deleted Scene

Even for people who love Beauty and the Beast, one of the most disturbing parts of the movie is the fact that everyone in the Beast’s castle is subject to the curse placed upon the residence by the enchantress who was so rudely refused shelter by the arrogant prince. Aside from that, the curse itself raised the question as to whether every household item in the castle was indeed inhabited by a person. One scene in particular would have provided just a little more information to that question, but it ended up getting deleted.

The Beauty and the Beast deleted scene in question finds LeFou (Josh Gad) attempting to run from the fight between the angry villagers led by Gaston and the castle’s living furniture by hiding in the bathroom. But that room turns out not to be so safe as it’s inhabited by one of the castle’s inhabitants, one who is stuck in that room due to what he’s been unfortunately transformed into: a toilet.
