hard powder
Who says cinema is dead? As long as someone is ready to make a Liam Neeson snowplow action movie, the medium of film will live forever. Neeson is set to star in Hard Power, a remake of the 2014 Norwegian film In Order of Disappearance. Neeson plays a snowplow driver going up against a drug cartel. If that doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what else to say.

Anyway, we now know when this miracle will hit theaters.

Child's Play Remake

There’s still plenty of time for MGM to realize what a terrible mistake they’re making, but the studio is apparently hell-bent on this terrible Child’s Play remake idea.

Lady and the Tramp cast

Tessa Thompson is having a hell of a year. She played supporting roles in Boots Riley’s blistering satire Sorry to Bother You, Alex Garland’s mind-bending Annihilation, and the second season of HBO’s twisty prestige drama Westworld. She was recently cast as the female lead of Sony’s Men in Black reboot, and now she has another leading role to add to her ever-growing resume: she’ll provide a voice in Disney’s live-action/CGI hybrid remake of Lady and the Tramp.

Thompson isn’t the only one to join the Lady and the Tramp cast: Benedict Wong (Avengers: Infinity War) is also on board. Find out more about who they’re playing below.

Nightmare on Elm Street reboot

Freddy Krueger hasn’t haunted audience’s nightmares in a while. The last time the character graced the screen was in the abysmal 2010 remake.

It’s doubtful Englund will ever return to the role at this point, but the actor recently revealed a pretty great Nightmare on Elm Street reboot idea of his own.
