The last time Tim Burton and Eva Green teamed up, we got the fairly awful Dark Shadows adaptation. To be sure, the film’s failures weren’t Green’s fault — indeed, she was one of the few bright spots in it. Still, here’s hoping their new collaboration will turn out better.
Based on the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children stars Asa Butterfield as a seemingly ordinary teenager who discovers a hidden refuge for “peculiars” — people with extraordinary powers. As he gets to know the ins and outs of this secret world, he realizes they’re all in danger, and that he’s the only one who can save them. Watch the new Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trailer below. Read More »

Warner Bros. will try to keep the Harry Potter franchise alive on the big screen later this year with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, directed by fantasy franchise helmer David Yates. But before that, the studio is taking a chance on the director’s adaptation of the classic Edgar Rice Burrough’s character Tarzan.
A new The Legend of Tarzan trailer has just arrived from IMAX, and this one lays out much more of the ape man’s origin story than we’ve seen in previous footage, including information about his parents, and some sneak peeks of how he was raised by apes. Will this be worthy of such a prime summer release date? Read More »

Captain America: Civil War may not technically have been an Avengers movie, but it did bring together nearly every hero in the Marvel universe to date, with few exceptions. Thor and Hulk being gone makes sense, considering the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron — and besides, we know the really reason they sat this one out was so they could go on a buddy road trip next year. But what about Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury, the man who originally brought all these superpowered beings together? Where was he in all of this?
In a recent interview, Captain America: Civil War screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus addressed Fury’s absence, and revealed whether the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. might return for the next big Marvel team-up, the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. Read More »
Everyone has been so focused on the currently filming adaptation of The Dark Tower, the upcoming adaptation of It, and the ever-in-development big screen version of The Stand that we completely forgot that another Stephen King adaptation was on the way. Show of hands: who remembered that they were actually making a film version of Cell until right this moment, when the first trailer arrived?

A few days ago, we learned that The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone was temporarily putting his adaptation of Stephen King‘s The Stand on the back burner so he could work on a completely different Stephen King adaptation that wouldn’t make a movie studio’s accounting department weep. His new project is a film version of Revival, King’s 2014 novel about a charismatic preacher who begins to experiment with the supernatural powers of electricity following the death of his family.
And now, it looks like we know who Boone is seeking out for the role of Charles Jacobs: the great Samuel L. Jackson, who is fresh off one of the best performances of his entire career in The Hateful Eight.
