There was a crack in the code for Tron: Legacy, and it was that Tron super fan Jared Leto didn’t get to appear in the sequel to the Disney cult classic. That is, according to Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinksi.

But that will all be remedied soon when Tron 3 finally moves along, which has had Leto attached to star for several years now. And Kosinski has an update for the tentatively titled Tron: Ascension: It could happen. Eventually.

Oh, what could’ve been. With Blade Runner 2049 about to arrive in theaters next week, director Denis Villeneuve is making the interview rounds and dropping various details about his highly anticipated sci-fi sequel.

blade runner 2049 tv spot

The plot of Blade Runner 2049 has thus far been shrouded in mystery, and the marketing and trailers for the Denis Villeneuve film seem intent on keeping it that way. However, it’s inevitable that we’ll learn a smidgen more of the secrets of this film.

Jared Leto Joker Movies

It’s been just over two weeks since word came out that Warner Bros. and DC Films were developing an origin movie for Batman’s most iconic villain, The Joker. But it feels like a lifetime ago because of how many updates and other announcements have followed (including an entirely separate movie featuring that character). The whole situation can be a little…much, and it turns out that even Jared Leto – the most recent person to play the Clown Prince of Crime in a live-action film – is “a little confused” about the whole thing.

Let’s take a look at his comments and break down everything we know so far.

Blade Runner 2049 Short Film

Blade Runner 2049 doesn’t hit theaters until October, but Warner Bros. Pictures has a long marketing lead-up to the sci-fi sequel to Ridley Scott’s original sci-fi noir from 1982.

The original Blade Runner took place in 2019, which was then the distant future. Now that we’re just two years away from hitting that year ourselves, it only makes sense for the sequel to jump ahead 30 years. That leaves a big gap of time where we don’t know what happened in this sci-fi universe. Thankfully, a series of short films leading up to the release of Blade Runner 2049 will help fill in some of the gaps, and the first one, starring Jared Leto and Benedict Wong, has just been released. You can watch it below. Read More »

The Joker and Harley Quinn Movie

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s surprising news that Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment were developing an origin movie for The Joker that would be directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and produced by Martin Scorsese, yet another project featuring The Clown Prince of Crime has been revealed, and this time he’s bringing his Clown Princess with him.

A new report says Warner Bros. has tapped Crazy Stupid Love filmmaking duo Glenn Ficarra & John Requa to direct and write a film focusing on the criminally insane romance between The Joker and Harley Quinn. Unlike yesterday’s Joker origin movie, this one will take place within the DC Extended Universe, as it will star Jared Leto and Margot Robbie reprising their Suicide Squad roles as The Joker and Harley Quinn respectively.

Blade Runner 2049 TV Spot

We’re returning to futuristic Los Angeles this Fall with the long-awaited sequel, Blade Runner 2049. Picking up where Ridley Scott left off in 1982, director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Prisoners) follows a new blade runner played by Ryan Gosling as he uncovers a secret from the past that will greatly impact the future, especially when it comes to replicants.

A new Blade Runner 2049 TV spot from our friends in the United Kingdom has arrived online, and it’s long enough that you could even consider it a trailer. There is plenty of new footage, including Officer K (Gosling) officially asking Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) to help him with some kind of case. Of course, Officer K is digging where he shouldn’t be and there are some dangerous people in pursuit who cut their meeting short.  Read More »

Denis Villeneuve interview

Making a satisfying sequel to a beloved, inspiring science-fiction classic is a tall order. But if there’s a filmmaker up to the hefty task, it’s Denis Villeneuve.
