You should look upon any remake of Dario Argento’s horror masterpiece Suspiria with a certain amount of caution and distrust. Like the sinister, hiding-in-plain-sight villains of the original film, this remake is saying all of the right things and doing its best to pull you into a hellish trap from which you cannot escape. Don’t believe its lies. Get out while you still can!
Or maybe sit down and stay awhile. Maybe it’s okay to listen to director I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino describe his vision for the remake, which has been in development for years under a series of different directors. And who knows? Maybe the promise of a cast that includes Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson will be enough to convince you to get comfortable and relax. Maybe.

Last year, Mel Brooks got everyone excited at the mere mention of just the possibility of making Spaceballs 2 a reality. Talk of a sequel was used as a joke in the original spoof of Star Wars from 1987, and Brooks imagined what it might be like if he did follow-up with a sequel to go along with Star Wars: The Force Awakens:
“If I did a movie that came out right after Star Wars comes out — maybe a couple of months later — I’d have a big weekend, you know? No matter what, even if it fell on its ass and didn’t get its money back…but that first weekend, the anticipation of seeing Spaceballs 2, would…I still have Daphne Zuniga and I still have Rick Moranis if he’d do it, and I’ve still got me.”
Now we have something else to tease our desire for Spaceballs 2 as some teaser posters have appeared in a New York City subway, donning the title that was teased in the first film. However, since this is an isolated appearance of the posters, we’re not going to hold our breath that they’re real. Still, you can see them below! Read More »
UPDATE: After many months of rumors, Variety has finally confirmed that Emily Blunt is in talks for Mary Poppins. Original story from September 17, 2015 follows.
Disney has already invested in Emily Blunt with a small role as Miss Piggy’s assistant in The Muppets and one of the lead roles in the Broadway musical adaptation of Into the Woods. Recently there have been rumblings that Blunt is under consideration for Captain Marvel along with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation star Rebecca Ferguson, but the actress had an interesting theory as to why those rumors keep circling.
And now Disney has another role for which they think the star of Edge of Tomorrow and this weekend’s Sicario would be perfect: Mary Poppins. That’s right, according to a new rumor, the House of Mouse wants Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in the recently announced musical sequel set in Depression-era London, about 20 years after the original.

Universal Studios Hollywood’s West Coast version of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to have its grand opening in just a couple months (though if you’ve visited the park last week you might have caught one of their early soft openings). It’s no secret that Universal would like their theme parks around the world to mirror each other, thus providing the same “universal,” pun intended, experience.
And one of the worst kept secrets in the theme park world is that Universal Studios Hollywood is supposedly planning to expand their Wizarding World to include the Diagon Alley expansion that opened in summer 2014 in Universal Studios Orlando. But where will Diagon Alley Hollywood be located and what attractions will it include? Will guests be able to ride the Hogwarts Express in Hollywood?

Just who is Scoot McNairy playing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?
It’s a question that has been asked in our headlines on more than a few occasions, but every query has been met with silence by Warner Bros. Because of the secrecy, and because McNairy was spotted on set wearing bright green stockings that would allow visual effects work to be done to his legs, fan speculation took a dive into the deep end. He’s playing the Flash! He’s playing Metallo! He’s playing Jimmy Olsen, albeit a new, grim ‘n gritty version of Jimmy Olsen who was horrifically maimed during the final battle in Man of Steel!
Now, a new report claims to know the truth and it’s most definitely not what you’d expect.

Almost everything we know about Thor: Ragnarok is built on rumor, conjecture, and offhand comments from Mark Ruffalo. We know that Cate Blanchett is probably joining the cast. We know the plot will involve Thor and the Hulk teaming up to go on some kind of cosmic road trip. We know that Taika Waititi of What We Do in the Shadows fame is on board to direct. But beyond that? Be skeptical.
So be skeptical with this new rumor that claims to know exactly how the Incredible Hulk ends up the third Thor adventure. If you want to know more, grab your pinch of salt and follow me.

Last month, we learned that Cate Blanchett was in talks to join the cast of Thor: Ragnarok and there was much rejoicing. Any movie would be lucky to lure the phenomenally talented Blanchett into its cast, so the thought of her joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some capacity is mind-boggling. This is “Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Tilda Swinton in Doctor Strange” level casting. We live in an age where our finest thespians have no problem taking a shift or two in comic book movies.
But who would Cate Blanchett be playing in the third Thor adventure, which is a buddy film starring the Odinson and the Hulk that will be directed by What We Do in the Shadows’ Taika Waititi? A new report has hit the internet claiming to know the answer to that question and it sounds about right. Still, consider this a rumor until we hear something official.

As it slowly limps out of theaters, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight feels destined to go down as the director’s most divisive film. Critics and audiences were split. It made /Film’s top 10 of 2015 but won’t earn half of what Django Unchained grossed at the box office. The incredible roadshow presentation was marred by theaters unprepared to project 70mm film prints. Tarantino’s legacy may be secure, but the destiny of The Hateful Eight itself is a big question mark.
And this is the point where we have to wonder what Tarantino will take on next. With the notable exception of the long break he took between Jackie Brown and Kill Bill Vol. 1, the always-controversial filmmaker typically has had another movie ready to go two or three years after his previous release. Could his next movie be a gangster movie set in 1930s Australia? Because he’s talking about that now.
