With the final season of Game of Thrones nearly upon us, HBO is hard at work to keep the fantasy world alive in at least one prequel show. George R.R. Martin, the author who first crafted the elaborate fantasy worlds of Westeros and Essos on the page, is involved as a co-creator and executive producer of the upcoming series, and in a new interview, he shared some more details about the show – including a better idea of where it falls on the timeline compared to the original series.

A rumor about Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt taking over the mantle of Indiana Jones from star Harrison Ford first popped up in 2015. Since then, Pratt has both denied the rumor and later acknowledged it, basically leaving the door open to the possibility should anyone at Disney or Lucasfilm come calling with an actual offer for him to play the whip-cracking archeologist.
But there’s one person who seemingly doesn’t want Pratt involved: current Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford. Below, watch Ford react to a question about Pratt potentially joining the upcoming Indiana Jones 5. Read More »

We’re almost a decade removed from the record-breaking box office success of James Cameron‘s Avatar, and we’re still years away from seeing if the long-gestating Avatar 2 will reignite audiences’ interest in the fictional world of Pandora. It’ll be even longer than that before we see Avatar 4 and 5, but despite Cameron’s assertion that those planned sequels aren’t sure bets, production is apparently already underway. And the franchise has already made at least one huge improvement: Cameron and his team have ditched the Papyrus font they used in the first movie.
In a new interview, Avatar star Sigourney Weaver says she’s “busy” working on those sequels now. She also talks a little about the new character she’s playing, her experience filming Avatar 2 and 3, and whether or not we’ll ever see Alien 5 directed by Chappie filmmaker Neill Blomkamp. Read Weaver’s quotes and take a look at the new Papyrus-free Avatar logo below. Read More »
Director Peyton Reed is best known for directing Ant-Man and next month’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, but that wasn’t the first Marvel property he was attached to direct. In the early 2000s, Reed was hired to make a Fantastic Four movie at Fox, but it ended up falling apart. But in a new interview, he says he’s still keeping the dream alive and suggested there was a chance that his script could eventually make its way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It all hinges on the Disney/Fox acquisition. Read More »
Earlier this month, we wrote about how director Matthew Vaughn announced plans to get behind the camera for a reboot of Kick-Ass, his 2010 movie that was based on writer Mark Millar’s comic book. One of that film’s most memorable characters is Hit-Girl, a trained assassin played by the then-13-year-old Chloe Grace Moretz. Moretz reprised the role in 2013’s Kick-Ass 2, but now the actress says she won’t be coming back to play that part in an eventual Kick-Ass 3 – and it sounds like Kick-Ass 2 could be to blame for that.
