The Toxic Avenger remake coming

The co-director of Sausage Party has signed on to reboot The Toxic Avenger. No, I’m not talking about Seth Rogen or Evan Goldberg, but Conrad Vernon, who co-directed the R-rated animated film alongside Greg Tiernan (its a common misconception that Goldberg and Rogen directed the film, as they co-wrote the screenplay and produced).

alien-nation-remake

We’re big fans of director Jeff Nichols around these parts. I loved his science fiction drama Midnight Special when I saw it at SXSW earlier this year and it’s still my favorite movie of 2016 so far. His other 2016 release, the drama Loving, was ranked number two on our list of most anticipated Fall movies and our own Angie Han has written a rave review from TIFF. And then there’s the fact that his filmography also includes gems like Take Shelter, Mud, and Shotgun Stories. Nichols is one our most humane filmmakers and he’s brought his gentle touch with him even as his budgets have steadily grown bigger.

And that makes the prospect of him signing on to remake the science fiction buddy cop movie Alien Nation one of the most intriguing and promising pieces of movie news to arrive this year.

The Crow reboot shooting in 2017

Relativity’s The Crow reboot has had so many stops and starts over the years, it’s gotten hard to keep track. It’s gone through several potential directors and as many potential stars, it’s weathered legal troubles and financial woes, and all along it’s suffered the deep skepticism of fans. So I totally understand if you don’t quite believe this next sentence. According to a new report, The Crow will begin shooting in January with director Corin Hardy and star Jason MomoaRead More »

2016 fall movie preview

This 2016 fall movie preview was written by Jacob Hall and Jack Giroux.

The summer is over and the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting milder and (fingers crossed) the movies are going to start getting better. The next four months offer an embarrassment of cinematic riches, with new films from Martin Scorsese, Damien Chazelle, Tim Burton, Gareth Edwards, Paul Verhoeven, Mel Gibson, Robert Zemeckis, Park Chan-Wook, Terrence Malick, J.A. Bayona, Jeff Nichols, Ang Lee, Denis Villeneuve, Kenneth Lonergan, and other filmmakers of note waiting in the wings.

We’ve narrowed down the list of must-see movies to 32 titles and have ranked them from “We really want to see this!” to “We will push you out of the way at a sprint to see this!”

The Magnificent Seven Character Vignettes

Assembling a cast that doesn’t pale in comparison to the original The Magnificent Seven‘s ensemble must not have been easy. We’re still waiting to see how Antoine Fuqua‘s remake of John Sturges‘ western compares to the original, but The Equalizer director certainly put together a cast that inspires promise. Whether they match the charm of the original cast doesn’t really matter, because even if they come halfway to capturing the magic the original cast had, then we’re in for a treat.

Below, watch The Magnificent Seven character vignettes.

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

Even though we’ve heard that a Ghostbusters sequel is unlikely after the box office numbers were analyzed a little more closely, there’s a chance the home video release could help convince Sony Pictures otherwise. Plus, when the reboot hits home video, we’ll be getting a different cut of the movie as an extended cut has been confirmed to be on the home video release, as teased by director Paul Feig a little while back.

The film has officially been given the title of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, which appeared at the end of some of the trailers and the movie once it hit theaters, as you can see in the cover art. You can check that out after the jump along with the list of special features and the release date for the Ghostbusters extended cut on Digital HD as well as Blu-ray and DVD. Read More »
