Stanley Kubrick Burning Secret

Acclaimed director Stanley Kubrick died in 1999, but if a bold enough filmmaker comes along, a new movie may be added to Kubrick’s cinematic legacy.

Kubrick co-wrote the script for a movie adaptation of a novella called Burning Secret back in 1956, but the film never got made – not only that, the screenplay was thought to be lost forever. But someone found it earlier this summer, and the Stanley Kubrick Burning Secret script is officially going up for auction later this month. Could his version of the story actually make it to the big screen after all?

creed 2 featurette

At 6’4″ and 245 pounds, Florian Munteanu’s Viktor Drago somehow makes the none-too-shabby Michael B. Jordan looks small. At least, that’s what the new Creed II featurette makes him out to be, introducing the Romanian boxer and actor, and all of his intimidating attributes, in all his glory. MGM released the clip ahead of the upcoming release of Creed II later this month, which sees Adonis Creed readying himself for a fight for not just his legacy, but for his life.

creed 2 drago

Ivan Drago is back in Creed II, but he’s not the Russian superman we saw in Rocky IV. In fact, according to actor Dolph Lundgren, the former boxer is emotionally damaged. This is a far-cry from the Drago audiences are used to, and it’ll be interesting to see Lundgren’s new take on the character. Read more of Lundgren’s thoughts about returning to the role of Drago below.

The Prodigy Trailer

Since Halloween hit theaters this weekend, studios knew they needed to pack the pre-show with a bunch of horror trailers to get those hungry for scares excited about the terrors to come. Unfortunately, since it’s October, that means we’re talking about horror movies that will get dumped in the early months of 2019, where bad movies go to die.

Judging by the first trailer, The Prodigy just might be one of those movies. The new supernatural horror thriller from director Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact, At the Devil’s Door) has a creepy kid (Jackson Robert Scott) seemingly inhabited by another being, and of course he scares the hell out of his mother (Taylor Schilling) with unnerving behavior and a cheap scare.

Creed II featurette

The Rocky movies have always been about legacy. Sylvester Stallone‘s underdog boxer didn’t think he was going to win in his first bout with Apollo Creed back in the original movie – he just wanted to “go the distance” to prove he could hang in there with the best of ’em. 2015’s Creed was about legacy too, but in a different way: legacy was a burden in that film, a shadow from which Michael B. Jordan‘s Adonis needed to step out to establish himself as a boxer in his own right.

Surprise, surprise: the theme of legacy returns again in Creed II, with Adonis not only facing off against the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), but doing so as a new parent. Plus, in a more meta sense, new director Steven Caple Jr. has the franchise’s legacy to contend with as he tries to fill the shoes of previous director Ryan Coogler. Watch a new Creed II featurette below.

Richard Madden as James Bond

While the James Bond franchise is preparing to have director Cary Fukunaga take over 007’s next mission that was previously in the hands of Danny Boyle, a new rumor indicates what might be happening once Daniel Craig hangs up the tuxedo.

Word on the streets of London is that James Bond franchise producers may be approaching Game of Thrones star Richard Madden to take over the role of 007, inspired by his recent turn on the BBC drama Bodyguard, which was picked up for distribution in the United States by Netflix not too long ago.

Of course, this story comes from the lawless world of British tabloid reporting, so bring your martini shaker of salt along for this one.

female james bond

British pop culture just had a watershed moment for one of its most iconic characters last night with Jodie Whittaker’s debut as the first female Doctor in Doctor Who. But one British institution will probably stay the way it’s always been. At least, for the foreseeable future.

James Bond, who has been portrayed by a similar revolving door of changing actors, will probably remain the same womanizing male spy who was first introduced in 1953. Despite some demands for a female James Bond, executive producer and one of the keepers of the Bond legacy, Barbara Broccoli, confirmed that there are no plans to cast a woman as 007.
