Plenty of Stephen King fans are still waiting to see an epic big screen adaptation of the book series The Dark Tower. That’s because the meager attempt to bring the books to life back in 2017 was a total disaster. Clocking in at only 95 minutes, the adaptation didn’t deliver the kind of epic fantasy they’d been hoping to see, and the movie was totally forgettable. If you’re one of the many disappointed fans out there who wished The Dark Tower turned out to be even better, you’re not alone. Producer Ron Howard also ended up being unhappy with the final product.

In Hollywood, that’s grounds for a sequel, and the studio is making moves to release Escape Room 2 in the spring of 2020. And if the end of the first movie is any indicator, we may already have an idea of where it’s going. Read More »
Back in 2014, when one of the biggest stories of the year was a huge hack of sensitive information from Sony Pictures, details on a potential crossover between the 21 Jump Street and Men in Black franchises came to light. In the years since, updates have been sparse with the exception of a title reveal calling the movie MiB 23. Unfortunately, the odds weren’t looking too good for the wild idea when Jonah Hill called the possibility of the sequel “kind of impossible,” and it turns out he was probably right.
Men in Black franchise producer Walter Parkes was recently asked about the chances of seeing Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum throwing on the suits and shades for the potentially incredible crossover, and his response confirms that the 21 Jump Street Men in Black crossover is dead in the water.

Next month, you can see John C. Reilly alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the western thriller The Sisters Brothers. But there’s a different pair of brothers that fans would like to see back on the big screen.
Step Brothers, starring John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell as forty-something step brothers still living at home with their recently married parents, became a comedy hit back in 2008 with just over $100 million at the box office, but it’s found even greater life in the years since. You can’t go anywhere without hearing quotes from the movie, whether it’s “Did we just become best friends?” or “It’s the fuckin’ Catalina Wine Mixer.” And because of that, fans have wanted a sequel.
