Luc Besson interview

When filmmaker Luc Besson was 10 years old, he was reading the comic book he’d adapt into a massive feature film 48 years later. Based on Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières‘ “Ambassador of Shadows,” published in 1975, Besson has brought their colorful, wacky world to to the big screen with his personal touch on every frame. From the complex, clever set pieces to the jokes to the colorful environments, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is pure Besson.

In a race against the clock, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) will have to save the city of Alpha, where alien species from all over the galaxy come together to share knowledge. The world feels endless, full of all sorts of aliens, characters, and environments. It took many years it took to build this world piece-by-piece, and the French director behind La Femme Nikita and The Fifth Element recently told us about the process.

Below, check out our Luc Besson interview.

Only the Brave trailer

Joseph Kosinski’s first two films, Tron: Legacy and Oblivion, lived in fantasy land. Both science-fiction movies showed what a precise eye he has, with smooth camerawork and stunning compositions. He’s crafted two lavish, visually appealing films, which, dramatically, sometimes leave more to be desired. The director is taking on more dramatic material with his next feature, Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

Below, watch the Only the Brave trailer.

There’s still no end in sight for the show, which is based on Robert Kirkman‘s comic book series. The brass at AMC don’t even know how the series will conclude, but in the meantime, we attended the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel and learned what they have in store.

Star Trek Discovery Comic-Con Exhibit

Star Trek is coming back to television in a big way this fall with an all new series coming to CBS All Access. Since San Diego Comic-Con is full of the kind of nerds who are looking forward to exploring the final frontier, it should come as no surprise that Star Trek: Discovery has a big presence at Comic-Con.

Not only is there a panel here at the convention, but CBS All Access also put together a little Star Trek: Discovery exhibition full of props, costumes and artwork of the new ships that fans will see when the new series begins this fall. Lucky for you, we got a closer look at everything on display, which includes tons of new information about the show’s characters and much more.

Check out all of our images from the Star Trek Discovery Comic-Con exhibit below. Read More »

fear the walking dead comic-con panel

Appropriately, Fear the Walking Dead served as a warm-up act to its parent show at Comic-Con in San Diego, premiering a new trailer for a packed house of fans. While AMC’s zombie spin-off has never achieved the overwhelming popularity of the original The Walking Dead, it definitely offers a different flavor of zombie apocalypse via the Mexican locations and a timeframe that places the action much earlier in the franchise timeline.

With the second half of the show’s third season returning this September, the series looks to bring its various story threads to a boiling point. As you’d expect, the details we learned and the footage we saw promised a grim future for the various survivors.

We’ve all probably had the experience of scrolling through hundreds of cable channels and not finding anything good to watch. But Hulu is hoping to destroy that experience by adding thousands of episodes of classic and more recent television shows to its lineup that will (hopefully) help you narrow down your choices quicker and easier. Read on for a list of these Hulu TV shows, including M*A*S*H, NYPD Blue, and many more.

Star Wars novels

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, an edict came down from on high: every Star Wars-related product that the company produced moving forward would be canonical, from coloring books to video games to comics and beyond. We already saw how some of the books influenced the script for The Force Awakens, but now we know how a whole new set of Star Wars novels will connect to the events of Rian Johnson‘s upcoming movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Channing Tatum Van Helsing

Universal’s Dark Universe is off to an inauspicious start. This summer’s The Mummy, directed by Alex Kurtzman and headlined by Tom Cruise, has made nearly $390 million worldwide, but only $79 million in the United States. That’s a bit of a disappointment, considering it features one of the world’s biggest remaining movie stars. But the studio is doubling down on reaching out to big names in an attempt to keep the ball rolling, and the latest report indicates that they have their eye on Channing Tatum to play the latest incarnation of Van Helsing in the Dark Universe.

shazam will be the next dc film

Update: DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns says Dwayne Johnson will not appear in the Shazam! movie. “We haven’t announced any casting yet,” Johns told Yahoo Movies. “But Dwayne isn’t going to be in this movie. He’s still doing Black Adam, but he won’t be in Shazam!” Our original article follows.

The future of the DC Extended Universe remained uncertain after Aquaman, the last DC Comics film with an official release date. But spurred on by the success of Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. had scheduled two more DC Films for 2020, mysteriously leaving all of 2019 blank. That is, until now.

The next DCEU film to hit theaters after Justice League this November and Aquaman in 2018 will be Shazam!, aiming for a 2019 release date. And while it doesn’t yet have a star to play the boy who magically transforms into a powerful and wise superhero, it does now have a director.
