Details on the Terminator Genesis plot are scarce. We know all the actors who’ve been cast in the 2015 reboot, the director, and the writers, yet how it all ties together remains a mystery. That mystery could slowly be unraveling, though, if we’re to believe a new report.
Possible plot points from Terminator Genesis have leaked online and they describe the film as kind of a Back to the Future Part II of the series. According to the rumors, this new film will jump between, and interact with timelines of the first Terminator film, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and bounce even earlier than that, with Sarah Connor appearing as a child. Read some possible Terminator Genesis plot details below. Read More »

A remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds has been in development for a long time. Martin Campbell was attached at one point, but for about five years, the idea has sat on a shelf picking up dust. Until today. Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes and Mandalay Bay just hired Dutch director Diederik Van Rooijen to helm The Birds remake, the most recent draft of which was written by Jonathan Herman. Naomi Watts was once attached, but no longer. Read More »
The second Godzilla trailer hit on Tuesday and fan anticipation for the film went through the roof. Almost every shot crafted by director Gareth Edwards looked like a painting, and then there was that huge-ass monster popping out of the sea. We’ve had a few days to digest the trailer, and now Empire got Edwards to break down the trailer scene by scene. He offers up some cool teases and interesting info in the ten-minute plus video.
Watch that below, and see a bunch of new images, an infographic showing the creature’s size, a Godzilla Snickers commercial and a reaction to 20 minutes of footage that screened overseas. Read More »
As someone who grew up in the Nineties, it’s kind of hard to get my mind around Nineties nostalgia. It honestly feels like it was yesterday, even though we’re 15 plus years removed. That said, I still enjoy it and Cinefix has just created a prime example to stab me straight in the heart – a homemade Hook remake.
They got Dante Basco to reprise his role as Rufio in a short, “homemade” (basically sweded) scene from Steven Spielberg‘s Hook. It’s surreal and funny to see this exciting, emotional scene played out in a Los Angeles driveway. With Basco there to utter his classic lines, however, it’s very worth your time. Plus there’s a behind the scenes video and a side by side with Spielberg’s version. Check them out below. Read More »
Steven Soderbergh’s site Extension 765 hosts a handful of items for sale, from photos to shirts and other ephemera. Occasionally Soderbergh will also deliver some other unusual items, and today’s post is a video called Psychos, which cuts together footage from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho and Gus Van Sant’s much-maligned remake.

We’ve seen a new poster and heard the monster’s roar, now here’s the second full trailer from Legendary’s big reboot of Godzilla. What more is there to say?
We see the monster’s nuclear origins, and hints of his immense size and power, but this is still much more of a tease than anything else; if you hate the fact that trailers seem to give absolutely everything away you’ll be happy here. While we do see Godzilla, there’s no one huge money shot. There is, however, a hint of one of the film’s other monsters. This is a great trailer; watch below. Read More »
Briefly: Yes, that Point Break remake is actually moving forward. Ericson Core (Invincible) is directing the film, which currently has Gerard Butler attached as bank robbing surfer Bodhi, a role originally played by Patrick Swayze.
Bodhi’s nemesis/partner Johnny Utah, a role originated by Keanu Reeves, will now be played by relative newcomer Luke Bracey. Bracey played the masked role of Cobra Commander in last year’s G.I. Joe Retaliation. The film will retain the same basic premise as the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow original, but except just surfing, it’s set in the world of extreme sports. [Variety]

Briefly: Updating on a story from a month ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is now firmly confirmed to star for Robert Zemeckis when the director makes his dramatic retelling of the doc Man on Wire. With plans to shoot in May, To Reach the Clouds will be the first project from Tom Rothman’s revamped TriStar Pictures.
The film follows Philippe Petit, who in 1974 fulfilled a six-year plan of stringing a wire between the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York, and spent hours walking back and forth across the steel cable, 1,350 feet above the air.
Deadline call the project a “3D experiential film” and highlights one of the more interesting aspects, the heist-movie angle in which Petit and his crew spend much of their effort sneaking materials up into the towers to stretch and support the cable.
