Here’s the first clip from Guardians of the Galaxy. You’ll see an extended version of the scene in which Peter tQuill, aka Star-Lord, is busted by some sort of interstellar peace officer/bounty hunter (Djimon Hounsou) as he attempts a little Indiana Jones-like maneuver. You’ve seen bits of this in the trailer, but here’s a longer look at the scene, with a nice little action beat at the end. Read More »

Jack Paglen has only one produced screenplay credit to his name, but it’s a big one: Transcendence, the directorial debut of cinematographer Wally Pfister. Now he might have a second big credit: the new Battlestar Galactica movie, which Universal has been developing off and on for the past few years. But don’t expect any continuation of the story told in Ronald D. Moore’s revival that began a decade ago. This will be an all-new Battlestar. Read More »

Update: Jeff Sneider at The Wrap reports that Lord and Miller have turned down the Ghostbusters 3 directing job. No potential next choice has been reported, but expect that news to come out shortly. There’s always the chance that they could yet be lured into the franchise, but at this point it seems like the job is open.

Leaked licensing materials suggest Paramount and Hasbro are already planning a fifth Transformers movie.
While nothing is official, it makes perfect sense. Three years have passed between 2011′s Transformers: Dark of the Moon and this year’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. Reviews on the former were pretty brutal, as they have been for most of the films in the franchise, but that hasn’t stopped audiences from showing up. Each film in the series has grossed more than the previous one with the “least” successful of the series, the 2007 original, grossing over $700 million worldwide (Dark of the Moon crossed $1 billion). Which is to say, there’s little chance the June 27 release of the fourth film won’t be a massive hit and a sequel won’t follow.
Now, it seems Transformers 5 is tentatively scheduled for 2017. Read More »

The 2012 remake of Dredd wasn’t a big hit financially but critically, and among fans, it was revered. Since its release, fans have clamored for a sequel, starting Facebooks and even an online petition. Star Karl Urban, writer Alex Garland, director Pete Travis and others have all expressed interest in continuing the franchise but, unfortunately, they aren’t the ones who sign the checks. The powers that be have not deemed a Dredd sequel to be financially viable so, despite all efforts, it’s still just a dream.

Godzilla (the monster, and possibly the film) is gigantic, but at this point Legendary and Warner Bros. are all about revealing new glimpses of the film in the smallest ways. A pair of trailers, teaser and full-length, have been very shy about showing off the monster and how he stomps around the world, preferring instead to illustrate the aftereffects of said stomping. A growing collection of TV spots is following suit, showing new footage in bite-size chunks. Today we have three new Godzilla spots,
A long “extended look” is promised for Saturday April 5, at 4pm EST / 1pm PST, so we’ll have that for you soon. Read More »
