new X-Files series

Details on Chris Carter‘s new X-Files series are as well-protected as the truth about some of the series’ obsessions. We do know a few things, however. The six-episode “event season” premieres in January 2016, and will feature Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reprising the central roles of Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

Additionally, Mitch Pileggi is on hand to play FBI Assistant Director Skinner. And William B. Davis, who played Skinner’s one-time ally and one of the show’s primary antagonists, will reprise his role as the Cigarette Smoking Man.

So with more people coming back, fans might think it’s a shame to see only six new episodes. Duchovny may agree. He has long been a cheerleader for the continuation of the series on film, and he’s already saying he’d be game to do a second season. Read More »

LEGO Mad Max Fury Road Vehicles

Here at /Film, we’re big fans of anything having to do with LEGO. That includes real LEGO sets like the recent Kwik-E-Mart release from The Simpsons, custom LEGO sets such as this massive 10,000 piece Millennium Falcon, and even video games like the forthcoming LEGO Jurassic World. So you can imagine how excited we were to find out that one LEGO fan built some custom sets paying tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road.

A Flickr user going by the name “LEGO Will” has built some incredible custom LEGO Mad Max: Fury Road vehicles, including the rogue War Rig commandeered by Imperator Furiosa. In addition, there’s also a rather interesting variation on Immortan Joe’s modified 1959 Cadillac that fans of another popular film franchise will appreciate. Check out the custom LEGO Mad Max Fury Road vehicles after the jump! Read More »

the legend of conan news

One of the big promises in Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s revived career as an actor has been the idea that he would reprise the role of Conan the Barbarian. It’s one of the gigs that cemented him as an action star, and the 1982 film co-written (with Oliver Stone) and directed by John Milius is hailed as among the best adaptations of pulp novels ever committed to film.

The new film, which is being dubbed The Legend of Conan, has Fast and Furious scribe Chris Morgan as a writer and producer, and Morgan now proclaims that the new film is intended to be an intense adventure film that carries forward the tone and even some of the other characters from the 1982 movie.

Jurassic World video Raptor Pratt

The park reopens on June 12 when Jurassic World hits theaters. Universal Pictures knows it has got a potential blockbuster, so the marketing is wisely using the audience’s nostalgia for the original Jurassic Park in the new film’s favor. The John Williams score, Steven Spielberg‘s enthusiasm, Chris Pratt‘s fandom, it’s all been used of the marketing strategy for the film. Speaking on a personal level, it’s definitely working.

The latest Jurassic World featurette continues this trend with a John Hammond voiceover, Pratt’s reverence for the franchise and Spielberg himself talking up the film. But it also goes one step further but showing a ton of brand new footage from the movie. In fact, the video might be half all new footage. Check out the new Jurassic World video below. Read More »

Jurassic World score

With Avengers and Tomorrowland now in theaters, most fans look to Colin Trevorrow for the summer’s next big blockbuster. That would be Jurassic World, opening June 12, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, among others.

One of the many, many things that made the Steven Spielberg original such a unmitigated classic was the iconic, amazing score by John Williams. Williams was unavailable this time around (working on a small little space movie) and the task of bringing music back to the park fell to the capable baton of Michael Giacchino. The Oscar-winning composer said he’d be using some of Williams’ themes along with his own new work and you can now hear a bit of what that sounds like. Two tracks from Giacchino’s Jurassic World score are online. Listen to them below. Read More »

Mission: Impossible 6

Audiences won’t be feasting their eyes on Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation until July 31st, but that’s much earlier than the initial Christmas release that Paramount Pictures had planned. And in addition to being unable to wait to release the sequel in theaters, the studio is also jumping the gun on development of yet another sequel.

A new report has surfaced saying Paramount Pictures is already developing Mission: Impossible 6. At this time, no cast members are officially set to return for the sequel, but Tom Cruise will again be producing along with David Ellison and Dana Goldberg at Skydance Productions and J.J. Abrams at Bad Robot. Get more details below. Read More »
