Just last week, a report detailing some trouble behind the scenes of Furious 8 revealed that Universal Pictures was having trouble locking down a director, and there was even some chatter about producer and franchise star Vin Diesel being difficult to work with on set in the recent sequels, being heavily involved in the writing process, almost to a frustrating level.

In addition, he’s confirmed that Universal is planning Furious 9 and Furious 10 for one final Fast and Furious trilogy that will begin with Furious 8. Read More »
When Force Friday arrived earlier this month, along with the barrage of toys, shirts and other junk for collectors to throw on shelves, there were also new books. There’s a whole batch of stories that have been written as part of a publishing initiative called Journey to The Force Awakens, filling in the gaps between Return of the Jedi and the new sequel arriving this winter.
Now two of those books have been given animated comic book adaptations. Sadly, it’s not the longer novels being given this treatment, but rather the kids’ books titles Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo Adventure and The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure. Watch the animated adaptations of the Journey to the Force Awakens books below! Read More »

To promote an upcoming appearance at a pop culture convention in October, Astin provided a Goonies 2 update, including uncertainty about whether or not the original cast will even be back for the sequel. Read More »
So far the X-Men spin-off movies that focus on Wolverine have been nowhere near as good as the regular X-Men franchise. Without much dissension, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is regarded abysmal. And while The Wolverine was a huge step up, it still felt like it was missing something.
But since Wolverine 3 is going to be the last time Hugh Jackman puts on the claws, he wants to make sure it’s the movie fans have been waiting for. In a recent interview, Jackman talked about Wolverine 3 development, opening up a bit about how Professor X (Patrick Stewart) factors in, and also reaffirming his dedication to a quality story, so much that he’s not yet guaranteeing that the movie will happen just yet.
