assassin's creed movie details

The Assassin’s Creed movie has only just started filming and it’s already in the running for the best video game movie of all time. Mainly because there hasn’t been a single genuinely good video game movie adaptation yet. When the high point of your genre is Paul W.S. Anderson’s Mortal Kombat, you have a problem. So by hiring an actor as interesting as Michael Fassbender and a director as promising as Justin Kurzel, Ubisoft has already given itself a huge leg up in this race. Even if the movie’s a stinker, it will undoubtedly be one of the best video game movies ever by default.

Now, Jean-Julien Baronnet, the CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, is comparing the film adaptation of their long-running franchise to Batman Begins and Blade Runner. Those are some big words right there.

Power Rangers plot details

Ever since Lionsgate picked up the rights to Power Rangers, the project has been described as a reboot. However, there have been rumblings that the story would somehow keep the mythology of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and all the versions that followed intact. When plot details surfaced over the summer, we learned how the original Power Rangers would be utilized in a big action sequence opening the movie. But it turns out some of those details may not have been very accurate.

A new batch of Power Rangers plot details from the opening of the movie, including the villains involved and a link to previous iterations of the team, have painted a different picture, and it sounds much more satisfying for longtime fans of the series. However, beware of spoilers from here on out! Read More »

Outatime trailer

The excitement for Back to the Future Day continues with a tease of another documentary about one of the most integral parts of the time traveling adventure. The DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future is one of the most iconic vehicles in cinema history, but for some reason, the primary car used during the production of the film trilogy was left to fall apart on the backlot of Universal Studios. It sat in the rain for years, fans would sneak onto the lot and steal parts from it, and the car seemed destined for the junkyard.

But Back to the Future writer Bob Gale wasn’t prepared to let the original DeLorean be erased from existence, and he had a restoration team assembled to bring the car back to its former glory. The work, which lasted over two years, is chronicled in the Outatime trailer, a documentary about the saving of this film legend. Read More »

time bandits tv series

Terry Gilliam is a cinematic genius, but he’s also a cinematic genius who wronged a sorcerer in a past life or something. His battles with movie studios are the stuff of legend. The movies that have literally fallen apart around him are too many to count. And then the internet went and falsely reported his death. If Gilliam’s own movies didn’t present a self-awareness about the absurdity of existence and cruel unfairness of life, it would be easy to fear for his sanity.

Could his salvation come via the small screen? We already knew he had a deal in place with Amazon, but now Gilliam has revealed that he’s working on a TV version of his 1981 comedic fantasy Time Bandits. Maybe things are finally looking up for the most cursed of filmmakers.

Check out Gilliam’s own comment on the Time Bandits TV series after the jump.
