There’s a new Toretto in town in Fast & Furious: Spy Racers, the new Netflix animated series from DreamWorks and Universal. Tyler Posey from Teen Wolf is providing the voice for Tony Toretto, the younger cousin of Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto from the live-action Fast movies. And based on this newly-released trailer, this show essentially feels like a slightly tweaked version of James Bond Jr., the 1990s animated series that followed the kid-friendly exploits of 007’s nephew. (Please don’t ask me why that character was named “Junior” if he’s Bond’s nephew, we don’t have time for that right now.) Read More »
It was only a matter of time until Disney ran out of classic animated movies to remake into live-action films, and we’ve been wondering how the studio would shift gears when they inevitably decide that a remake of The Fox and the Hound probably isn’t going to cut it. Now it seems like we may have our answer about what they might do instead: spin-offs of its live-action remakes.
A new report says a live-action Aladdin spin-off is in the works, but it’s not based on Mena Massoud’s Aladdin, Naomi Scott’s Jasmine, or even Will Smith’s Genie. Nope, it’ll center on Prince Anders, the goofy-ass character played by Billy Magnussen who was in the film for all of two minutes.

The sequel has been long coming since Mad Max: Fury Road transcended expectations to earn a Best Picture nomination at the 2016 Oscars. But in the time since Miller has directed Fury Road, genre movies — and debates about whether they can be called “cinema” — are all the rage. So naturally, Miller is the latest auteur to weigh in on that discussion.

“Danger, Will Robinson,” is certainly a phrase that Lost in Space season 2 seems to be taking seriously. But this time, there’s no robot to warn the space-faring Robinson family about it. More than a year after Netflix debuted its glossy, big-budget reboot of classic 1960s sci-fi series Lost in Space, the Robinson clan is back to being lost and facing perilous waters. The latter quite literally, as they turn their spaceship into an actual ship in the Lost in Space season 2 trailer.

Back in the spring, /Film exclusively reported that Walt Disney Pictures was working on a reboot of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. The movie would continue in the same universe as the original film series, with Josh Gad playing the son of Rick Moranis’ character, Wayne Szalinski. Now a grown-up scientist himself, the Szalinksi son ends up accidentally shrinking his own kids. It’s the same story over again, and Disney felt like that warranted bringing back the original film’s director, Joe Johnston, who is now in talks to take the helm. Read More »

A proper glimpse at 007’s next mission arrived this week with the first trailer for No Time to Die. It certainly looks like a better outing for Daniel Craig than Spectre, and considering this is his send-off as James Bond, that’s good news for fans. But the movie is still roughly five months away, so we’ll have to sink our teeth into some slick official images from the movie in the meantime
The new No Time to Die photos feature shots of Daniel Craig looking both rugged and dapper, as well as the return of Christoph Waltz as Blofeld and another facially disfigured villain in the form of Rami Malek. Plus, it wouldn’t be a James Bond movie without some ladies on the scene, including Ana de Armas, Lea Seydoux, and Lashana Lynch. Read More »
