Sherlock special

New episodes of Sherlock probably won’t hit the air, at least in America, until 2016. If we’re lucky, maybe late 2015, but nothing is set in stone. Well, that’s not entirely true. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who’ll both be seen in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will soon shoot a special episode of the show that will air during 2015.

We don’t know exactly what will happen in the episode as the finale of the third season offered quite the cliffhanger, but we have the first image that hints at the story. Maybe this episode won’t actually be in sequential order with the rest of the show. Check out the Sherlock special image and see for yourself. Read More »

Well, J.J. Abrams has released one of his patented notes recognizing this plan and even revealed the trailer’s total length: 88 seconds. See the Star Wars trailer release date note below. Read More »

last starfighter remake

The Last Starfighter has seen a nice little bump in nostalgic recognition over the past few days. The reason? This awesome “Modern Trailer,” which /Film was among the first to post. Many fans have been watch the trailer and wondering the same thing I wondered in the text of the piece. Why hasn’t this fantastic, yet underrated movie, with a premise so perfectly engrained in modern pop culture, been remade yet?

Several filmmakers and writers, among them Star Wars stand alone writer Gary Whitta and actor/writer/director Seth Rogen, have been discussing this topic on Twitter. Each has looked into getting the rights. As it turns out, they are near impossible to acquire. How impossible? Steven Spielberg himself couldn’t get the Last Starfighter remake rights. Read More »

Jurassic World trailer

After last week’s odd tease about “Something Big Is Coming” in the Jurassic Park world, it’s come true. The official Jurassic World Twitter posted a short, awesome, tease of the first Jurassic World trailer, which will premiere Thursday at 9 p.m. EST during the Seahawks/49ers game on NBC, and online everywhere.

In the footage, you’ll see Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, the new park gates and lots of dinosaurs running around. It’s pretty exciting.

Check out the first footage from Jurassic World below. Read More »

Toy Story 4 plot

Toy Story 4 will be in theaters June 16, 2017 and fans are incredibly excited. Or mad. You see, Toy Story 3 had such a perfect, beautiful ending that many fans though the franchise was over and should never be touched again. A perfect trilogy. Series co-creator, and director of Toy Story 4 John Lasseter, agrees with you.

Toy Story 3 ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie,” he said in a press release. “But when Andrew [Stanton], Pete [Docter], Lee [Unkrich, director of TS3], and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.”

So what was this amazing, groundbreaking, wow idea that made Pixar try  to top one of the highest grossing and most critically acclaimed animated films of all time? We don’t know (though Lasseter did tease it’s a love story in another interview) but we’re going to try and figure out.

We took to Twitter to ask you, the /Film readers, for your ideas. Oddly enough lots of them fell into similar categories. For example, many of you felt the film would have something to do with new technology. The Toy Story films have usually ignored that. Or maybe something to do with Disney synergy, bringing in Marvel or Star Wars characters.

Nevertheless, the ideas were plentiful and, below, we grabbed a whole bunch of Toy Story 4 plot pitches for you to check out. Read More »

Interstellar McConaughey Nolan

Two weeks from Tuesday, theaters with film projectors start screening Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. That means a few things. One, you better get your tickets. And two, it’s time to begin managing expectations and avoiding spoilers. Over the past few days, the film has begun screening for general audiences, celebrity audiences and press alike. Attendees are usually embargoed from going on social media about early screenings but that very rarely stops people. And if the reactions are positive, studios usually don’t care.

As expected some of those early Interstellar reaction tweets are positive. Very positive. Plus, they suggest while Nolan continues to compare his film to 2001: A Space Odyssey, he’s made something that has wider appeal than Kubrick’s polarizing masterpiece. Below, read about some early Twitter buzz about Interstellar.

UPDATE: We’ve added the reactions of some of Hollywood’s most well respected filmmakers and fans such as Rian Johnson, Patton Oswalt and more. Read More »

Good Dinosaur changes

There’s no new Pixar movie in 2014, but we’ll get two from the studio in 2015. June brings Pete Docter’s Inside Out (which you can read lots about here) and then, November 25, 2015, they’ll release The Good Dinosaur.

The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled to hit theaters in Summer 2014, but a change of directors and lack of confidence in the story pushed it back over a year. New director Peter Sohn doesn’t want people to forget the film is coming, though, and released a cute, short little teaser on Twitter. Check it out below. Read More »

Star Wars Episode VII Contest JJ Abrams

A new photo from the set of Star Wars Episode VII has been released. Well, more accurately, a pic has emerged from inside the production offices at Pinewood Studios outside London. It’s the same image Kevin Smith described when he talked about his trip to the set; this time the actual image was posted by Frank Marshall, the film producer and husband of Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm. It’s a Star Wars themed poster warning people who visit the set about what they can and can’t say. See the Star Wars 7 poster here. Read More »
