We’ve officially got to the frightening stage of remakes. This is the stage where Hollywood has remade almost every single movie reasonable worth remaking, and even some that weren’t. Now they’re onto the classics. How long will it really be before films like Psycho or Halloween get remade? Oh, wait.
On that list of films that should never be remade, but may one day is The Neverending Story. The 1984 film directed by Wolfgang Petersen follows a young boy who reads a fantasy book and ends up getting involved in the story. It spawned a few sequels, and holds a special place in the heart of many filmgoers because – for some – it was one of their earliest exposures to the world of fantasy, especially seen through the eyes of a young protagonist.
Will The Neverending Story ever get remade? Who knows. But one artist has created some concept art in case it does and it’s pretty impressive. Read More »

It’s a sign of the impact of the new Planet of the Apes films that the two recent movies continue to be topics of conversation in a film landscape that is often all too quick to move on to the next big thing. We’re still talking about Rise of the Planet of the Apes a couple years layer, in part because director Rupert Wyatt is doing the press rounds for his new film, The Gambler, and people still have many questions about his previous film. This concept art just happens to crop up at the same time as those interviews, but it offers something that fans of the original Planet of the Apes will appreciate: a view of a nixed Rise of the Planet of the Apes alternate ending that calls back to the original film.

The release of last weekend’s Big Hero 6 was the first time many people had even heard of the Big Hero 6. In fact, however, the characters have been around in the Marvel comic book universe for over 16 years. Not that you’d necessarily recognize them. As some early sketches of Hiro and Baymax show, they looked way different back in the day.

Disney may be riding high on their animation, Star Wars and Marvel, but that’s not everything going on in their kingdom. Later this year, they’re releasing the highly anticipated musical adaptation of Into the Woods, which stars Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine. Musical fans have along been singing the songs from the show, which blends a bunch of familiar fairy tales into a larger story, and now the hope is director Rob Marshall has brought some of that Chicago charm to the Tony award winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.
Disney’s own magazine, Disney Twenty-Three, has Into the Woods on the cover this month and, below, you can get your first look at that as well as read an exclusive excerpt from the feature inside, which tells some behind the scenes stories including one regarding Meryl Streep’s finger nails.

We haven’t seen much at all from the new Duncan Jones movie Warcraft, but at Blizzcon today the gates are opening on some of the film’s story. We’ve known most of the cast of the film, which includes Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown. Until today we weren’t certain about most of their characters beyond the fact that Foster would play Medivh. Now we know roles for all the major players, and we’ve even got early renders of a couple of them in character. Meet the Warcraft movie characters below.

2014 marked the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters and we’ve been celebrating like Gozer in New York City. The original 1984 film was rereleased, and there were traveling art shows, tons of new merchandise and events. For a while, almost every single week it seemed like something Ghostbusters was going on. That culminated last month as director Paul Feig revealed he was going to make a new Ghostbusters movie, something fans have been waiting on for 25 years.
Or maybe that wasn’t the culmination. Maybe the culmination is actually the cover of this week’s Enteratinment Weekly, which reunites four living stars of the film: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. Harold Ramis passed away earlier this year, and there’s no appearance from Rick Moranis. But Annie Potts and director Ivan Reitman do take part. Below, check out the Ghostbusters reunion photo.
UPDATE: We’ve added some video too. Read More »
