The Lion King Remake

One of the things that has always impressed me about James Cameron as a filmmaker is how he confronts obstacles to achieving his vision – if current technology can’t help him achieve his vision, then he will help develop brand new technology to actually make it happen, damn it! The line between technician and artist has continued to blend in this way over the past 15 years or so, with filmmakers like Peter Jackson and Robert Zemeckis building entire movies around fresh tech, sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing, but always adding more to the conversation.

The last filmmaker I expected to push the technological envelope was Jon Favreau, whose low-key beginnings eventually propelled him into the blockbuster arena, but here we are. After creating photorealistic animal characters and environments in The Jungle Book earlier this year, he’s now talking about how virtual reality tech will influence his upcoming remake of The Lion King.

Miranda Otto in 24: Legacy / Howard Gordon interview

When the final clock ticked away on 24: Live Another Day, I don’t think anybody believed that was the end of the 24 saga. Now the producers have created a new 24 series to begin a new day of real-time action with new characters in the world of CTU. Corey Hawkins plays Eric Carter, an Army Ranger on the run who turns to an old, retired CTU head (Miranda Otto), dragging her back into the fray too.

At an early screening of the first hour of 24: Legacy, we spoke with Howard Gordon, one of the original executive producers of 24. Some spoilers from the pilot follow, so if you don’t want to know about classic 24 characters who are referenced or what hour begins the day, here is your spoiler warning.  Read More »

mondo nickelodeon show

Mondo has always had a good eye for making pop culture posters that appeal to something primal in a specific fandom – their artists tap into imagery that remind us why we love something in the first place. And now, they’re coming for the ’90s kids.

The Austin-based art and collectibles company has officially announced their next gallery show, which will be based around Nickelodeon shows, touching on both the classic and recent entries in the network’s line-up.

Westworld Timeline

Nine episodes into Westworld season one and it should be clear to even the least attentive viewer that we are seeing more than one time period cut together. And those of you who have fallen down the rabbit hole of Westworld theories have a much clearer understanding of the chronology of everything we’ve seen thus far, but being a Nolan-produced series, its all a bit complicated. Thankfully someone has put together an extensive chronological timeline to help us understand the when and where of it all. Hit the jump to jump into the Westworld timeline.

rogue one clip

We’re two weeks from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the marketing machine has entered the “Screw it, let’s some ’em everything!” phase. At this point, to take in every new TV spot and every new promotional video is to risk seeing a little too much…unless that is entirely your goal. So you probably know whether or not you want to watch the first clip from director Gareth Edwards‘ spin-off film, which is set in the time right before the events of the original 1977 Star Wars and follows a brand new crew of characters who set out to steal the Empire’s Death Star plans and ensure that the events of the original trilogy happen in the first place.
