Pete's Dragon

Pete’s Dragon is very, very loosely based on the 1977 Disney film of the same name, a movie that, as charming as it often is, isn’t exactly sacrilegious to remake. Handling the newest Disney modernization is director David Lowery, whose last feature film was Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Going from a sparse, tone poem to a big Disney remake is quite a jump for a filmmaker to make, but the trailer for Pete‘s Dragon suggests it’s a transition Lowery had little trouble making.

Below, watch the latest Pete’s Dragon trailer.

“The weird thing, for me, is that the reason I felt this was the right movie to make was because the tone didn’t feel that different [compared to my past work]. Sometimes I would joke that we’re just remaking Ain’t Them Bodies Saints with a dragon instead of Casey Affleck,” director David Lowery says, comparing his upcoming fairy tale, Pete’s Dragon, to his meditative and somber 2013 drama. “All the movies I make I can’t help but to make them incredibly personal, try to make them mine. That’s just the way I do it.” The co-writer/director didn’t expect to follow up his acclaimed tone poem with a Disney remake, but once he and Toby Halbrooks finished the first draft of the script, he thought, “Of course this is the next movie I’m going to make.”

Thor and Hulk

Even though the cast has been officially announced, we don’t know a hell of a lot about Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok. We know that the new cast is amazing (Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, c’mon). Cate Blanchett playing the film’s mysterious and powerful new villain Hela gives us some clues. And we also know that Mark Ruffalo will be reprising his role as Bruce Banner and The Hulk for this third installment of the Thor franchise. But we didn’t expect Thor: Ragnarok to be an action-comedy about the god of thunder and a gama-rey exposed scientist traveling across space, fighting evil baddies. According to Mark Ruffalo, thats exactly what the film is.

Judge Dredd Still Image

Dredd was an out-and-out flop when it hit theaters in 2012, but thanks to strong reviews and a solid home video performance it’s only gotten more popular as time has gone by. For years now fans have been calling for a sequel, and star Karl Urban has been more than happy to encourage that chatter. Still, when he mentioned recently that he wanted to make a Dredd 2, we chalked it up to wishful thinking. After all, he’s been saying as much for years and so far hasn’t had much to show for it.

But it looks like there might be a tiny bit more to his recent comments than we previously assumed. During an appearance at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, Urban teased that “conversations are happening” about bringing Dredd back, possibly as a streaming series.  Read More »

Star Trek Beyond Set Video

In case you haven’t heard, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. The original TV series premiered back in 1966, and that’s why Paramount Pictures wanted to make sure they got Star Trek Beyond in theaters this year as a way of paying tribute to Gene Roddenberry’s iconic sci-fi creation. So far we don’t know much about the third film in the rebooted franchise, but some new details have come to light.

A set visit to the Enterprise and brief interviews with some of the cast provide a little insight into where we find the crew of the ship, not to mention the state of the ship itself. Plus, get a look at some of the new weapons and an important addition to one character’s family. Read More »
