Today in “shut up and take my money” news, MGM is set to make Yasuke, a film based on the true story of the only African samurai in history. Yasuke was perhaps the first black man to set foot in Japan, and his arrival caused an uproar and piqued the interest of a warlord named Oda Nobunaga. There’s no director or actor attached to the Yasuka movie yet, but this is the kind of original project that is bound to get a lot of attention.

It’s a completely new sculpt from the one they previously created for the 1/2 scale bust a little while back, and it’ll make creeps think twice before they come busting down your door. Read More »
What if…the Child’s Play remake ends up being good? Fans of the franchise (like me!) were initially grumpy about this entire endeavor, but slowly and surely, the new film has worn has down. The cast is mighty impressive, and having Mark Hamill as the new voice of Chucky is a masterstroke. And then there’s the footage, which looks promising. Including the footage you’ll see in the new trailer below. While nothing can ever replace the original Child’s Play series, this new take on the material might end up surprising us all. Watch the new Child’s Play trailer below.

Orion Pictures and MGM are done playing around. The studios released a Child’s Play image offering the first proper look at the new Chucky in all his creepy glory. The new image is the first full image we have of the new Chucky, who has received quite the sleek makeover, in the form of a smooth, porcelain-looking face and a slicked-back hairstyle. But he’s still got those familiar blue overalls and a knife in hand.

While the Tomb Raider reboot with Alicia Vikander didn’t generate much buzz, it did well-enough at the box office worldwide for MGM and Warner Bros. to go ahead with a sequel. And they’ve hired a new writer to get the job done. Amy Jump, who co-wrote Kill List, A Field in England, High-Rise, and more, will handle the script. Plot details are still buried deep beneath the earth, but the first film was more of a prequel, so hopefully this follow-up will cut with the world-building and make with the tomb raiding.

With the new Child’s Play this summer (watch the teaser trailer), we get an all new Chucky. This time the doll is said to turn towards the sinister side thanks to advanced artificial intelligence inside a new doll for a contemporary audience.

Today Orion Pictures and MGM announced Star Wars saga legend and beloved voice actor Mark Hamill will bring the evil doll to life. Read More »
When Danny Boyle was announced as the director of James Bond 25, the movie world was abuzz with what his version of a Bond movie would look like. But alas, that buzz was cut short when Boyle suddenly left the project in August last year, citing that dreaded term: “creative differences.” Boyle hasn’t spoken since on the reason he clashed over the vision of the film with star Daniel Craig and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, but in a new interview, he illuminates why he left the project and why he feels no ill will toward current director Cary Fukunaga. Read More »
