It’s been a little while since we got our first official look at the upcoming big screen adaptation of the video game franchise Uncharted. However, rather than tackling any of the stories from the video game series, the movie will be a prequel that gives us a younger version of adventurer and treasure hunter Nathan Drake, played by Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise star Tom Holland.
The story for the Uncharted movie from director Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Zombieland) is still under tight wraps, but the mystery at the center of the adventure has been teased in a batch of new images showing off some interesting artifacts that Nathan Drake will encounter. Get a look at the new Uncharted movie photos below and see if there’s anything to decipher. Read More »
There must be some level of irony around a video game movie about a deadly pandemic wrapping up production amid a real-life pandemic. But the context in which the new Resident Evil film has been filming is certainly not intentional, as the Johannes Roberts-helmed reboot is Sony and Constantin Film’s newest expansion of a film franchise that began with Paul W.S. Anderson’s 2002 film. Anderson would direct or co-write the next five films in the series, but he steps away from the franchise completely with the latest Resident Evil movie, which has no connections to the previous films and is on track to be released theatrically in 2021.

Warner Bros. made history – and a lot of people angry – when they announced they planned to release their upcoming 2021 theatrical slate directly to HBO Max. While the idea is appealing to those who want to view big new movies from the safety of their own home, cinephiles worry that this might signal the death of the theatrical experience. On top of that, creatives – filmmakers, actors, and beyond – are feeling betrayed and annoyed.
Having these titles available to stream could impact box office (the films are still getting theatrical releases the same day they hit HBO Max), which in turn could hurt people financially (lots of actors and filmmakers get an extra payday depending on how well their film does at the box office). To add insult to injury, many of the people involved with the upcoming 2021 Warner Bros. titles say they were never told WB was planning on doing this.
Because of all of this, it looks like the Warner Bros. decision might be benefiting rival studio Sony.

Whitney Houston was an incomparable, chart-topping singer with a powerful voice and a vivacious presence. So finding someone to play the singer/actress required a worldwide search to find the perfect actress to bring her to life in the upcoming biopic I Wanna Dance with Somebody.
