Tenacious D Movie Sequel

You might not remember it very well, but the rock duo Tenacious D, comprised of comedians Jack Black and Kyle Gass, released a movie back in 2006. Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny came at the tail end of the band’s popularity that peaked shortly after they got their own short-lived series on HBO. Perhaps that’s why the film bombed at the box office, making just under $14 million worldwide on a reported budget of $20 million. It seemed to prove that Tenacious D was more of a cult favorite than a bankable name.

Despite the film’s apparent lack of success, it would seem fans of both the movie and the band have inspired Jack Black and Kyle Gass to take a crack at a Tenacious D movie sequel, and it’s coming much sooner than you might have thought. Read More »

Who’d have thought it would be Death Wish director and horror maestro Eli Roth who would be reviving that good ‘ol Steven Spielberg magic?

But he seems to be doing just that in the new fantasy-horror film The House with a Clock in Its Walls, an adaptation of a beloved, spine-tingling gothic children’s novel. And based on the first The House with a Clock in Its Walls trailer, the movie is rife with fantastical elements, awe-inspiring effects, and delightfully witchy performances from Jack Black and Cate Blanchett.

Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle Sequel

UPDATE: Since this story was published, The Wrap revealed that director Jake Kasdan is also in talks to get behind the camera for the sequel again. Our original story follows.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle became the surprise box office giant of 2017…and 2018. The sequel to the 1995 adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s book has earned over $857.6 million at the global box office, making it Sony’s biggest non-Spider-Man movie, and it just took the #1 spot again this past weekend after being in theaters for a month and a half. So of course Sony Pictures is putting a sequel together.

Just last month, we heard that Sony Pictures head honcho Tom Rothman was looking at having a Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle sequel square off with Star Wars: Episode 9 in 2019, just as they did at the end of last year. Now, the studio has officially hired two writers to tackle the sequel: the same duo who wrote Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and followed it up with Sony’s comic book spin-off Venom. Read More »

the polka king trailer

Life truly can be stranger than fiction. In The Polka King, based on a true story, Jack Black plays Jan Lewan, a real-life polka dancer who fell from grace after he conned an entire town with a Ponzi scheme.

The Polka King, a black comedy that Netflix bought after it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, has released a first trailer, and it lives up to its wacky premise.

Goosebumps

Goosebumps was one of 2015’s more pleasant surprises, a goofy and spooky horror romp that was just scary enough for kids and just clever enough for their parents. It also managed to evoke R.L. Stine’s original books while lovingly poking fun at them. It’s a good kids’ movie, a kind of gateway horror movie that functions much like the original books in that it offers youngsters a successful entry point into an intimidating genre.

Now, the sequel has a new director. Unless it doesn’t get made. Because even as the sequel moves forward, some behind-the-scenes issues have been plaguing the follow-up as it struggles to get off the ground.
