He didn’t say where, he didn’t say for how long, but he did say they have “a lot of” the main actors in place. However, they’re “not completely done yet” with casting.

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.
In a new video, though, Karl Urban gives fans yet another glimmer of hope saying “we’re working very very hard to bring you Dredd 2.” Read More »
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 »
We’ve seen more than a few films that have been heavily inspired by John Carpenter’s The Thing — one was even also called The Thing! On the surface, the awesomely-titled Blood Glacier is very much in that vein, as it follows a scientific team in the snowy Alps as the small group contends with a bunch of violently mutated animals. The effects are often practical, and between the snowy setting and the latex monsters, this is starting to look like a potentially entertaining inheritor of The Thing‘s mantle. Check out a Blood Glacier trailer below. Read More »

The actors who play the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Jonathan Liebesman‘s new film won’t, necessarily, lend the voices to those famous turtles. Case in point, Johnny Knoxville (Jackass) has been added to voice group leader Leonardo and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will voice master Splinter. During filming, Pete Ploszek and Danny Woodburn played the respective roles in performance capture but, apparently, their deals never guaranteed they’d provide the voices.
