the matrix reboot

Update: A representative for Chad Stahelski has reached out and let us know that the initial report was inaccurate. His comments were in response to a hypothetical scenario were the Wachowskis would be involved and he did not confirm them being attached to the new film. Our original article follows below.

When Warner Bros. announced that a reboot of The Matrix was in early stages of development, fans of the game-changing sci-fi action movie awoke from their stupor — only for excitement to abate when it was reported that the Wachowskis would not be involved. But The Matrix reboot may have gotten the filmmakers on board after all, according to John Wick 3 director and former Matrix stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski.

the hustle review

Riding in on the wave of gender-swapped remakes, The Hustle is a comedy whose timing is late in every sense of the word. Based on the 1988 film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which is itself a remake of 1964 Bedtime Story, The Hustle attempts to reboot the story of two wildly different con artists for the modern age with a female-led cast, but instead ends up feeling painfully out of date. Fat jokes and gay digs run amok in a film that is barely saved by the sparkling chemistry of its duo, Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, who do their best with a film that scams you out of your time.

The Mummy Honest Trailer

It’s summer blockbuster season, and Screen Junkies is taking advantage of it by bringing forth a series of Honest Trailers looking back at some of the biggest movies from years ago. First up on the docket is The Mummy. No, not the easy target starring Tom Cruise (they’ve already done that one). Instead, it’s The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser where he plays a smoldering hero who is uncannily like Indiana Jones, except he shoots at every problem a lot more. Seriously, every problem. Watch The Mummy Honest Trailer below. Read More »

aladdin clips

Disney is far from done unleashing their live-action remakes. Next up: Aladdin, which has Will Smith stepping into the iconic shoes, er…I mean, lamp of the Genie. However this film turns out (reaction to the trailers has been mixed, to say the least), it’s clear Smith is giving it his all. In two Aladdin clips below, you get to see the actor bring his Big Willie Style to the Disney universe. In one clip from the film, the Genie shows off his powers. In another clip, Smith is a guest on the Tonight Show, and performs his version of “Friend Like Me.”

Aladdin Clip

Even though most Disney fans are probably much more excited about the prospect of The Lion King remake coming to theaters later this summer, one of the other studio’s remakes of an animated classic is arriving first.

Aladdin takes the beloved 1992 animated fantasy romance and brings it into the live-action word with newcomer Mena Massoud playing the titular street urchin who wants nothing more than to marry the beautiful princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott of Power Rangers). But he’ll need the help of the cool, blue genie (Will Smith) and maybe some luck to make it happen. Thankfully, things seem to be going his way in a new Aladdin clip that kicks off one of the most famous scenes from the original movie. Read More »

lady and the tramp remake song

When you hear the title Lady and the Tramp, two things likely come to mind. One is the famous scene where the two dogs share some back-alley spaghetti. The other is “The Siamese Cat Song.” While dogs eating pasta is still perfectly acceptable (in small doses – don’t let your dogs get overweight!), the “Siamese Cat Song” has not aged so well. In fact, it’s quite problematic, to say the least.

Disney is about to unleash a new live-action Lady and the Tramp remake for Disney+, and if you were wondering if the “Siamese Cat Song” would make it into the new film, we now have the answer. Janelle Monae is “reinventing” the song, which means it’ll probably be completely different, and far less offensive.

hellraiser remake david goyer

David S. Goyer has such sights to show you. Like a Hellraiser remake. The Batman Begins screenwriter will write and produce a remake of Clive Barker‘s horror classic, marking the end of a very long journey to reboot the gore-drenched franchise. Barker’s original, released in 1987, centered on a puzzle box with the power to unleash demonic deviants from another dimension. It would go on to spawn many sequels, most of which were downright terrible.
