The Death of Superman trailer

It’s been just over 10 years since DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation tackled the iconic “Death of Superman” comics storyline in an animated film called Superman: Doomsday. It’s only been two years since Doomsday killed Superman in live-action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and less than a year since the Man of Steel was resurrected in Justice League. But for some reason, they’re going back to that same well again with The Death of Superman, a new animated take on that same story. Check out the latest trailer below.

Overboard Trailer

As is perhaps only fitting for a romantic comedy, there’s a lot to love in the new Overboard. Lest we forget, the main reason the original Overboard (released in 1987) works is through sheer force of charm — Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are unstoppable. But even so, it’s not a film that plays particularly well to a modern audience. A man kidnapping an amnesiac woman to turn her into a housewife is creepy at best. The kiss that Russell plants on Hawn when he comes to pick her up at the hospital is just the tip of the iceberg. As such, it’s difficult (in a vacuum, at least), to imagine a remake going well. But Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez, under the direction of Rob Greenberg, have made something great.

ghostbusters reboot sequel

Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot was a lot of fun, even though some people got very Mad Online™ about the whole endeavor. Sony was hoping the reboot would launch a whole new franchise, but not-so-great box office seems to have killed that. Still, Feig says he’s definitely open to directing a Ghostbusters reboot sequel should Sony give the idea the go-ahead.

the killer remake

The Killer was not John Woo’s first movie, but it was the movie that put the director and his instantly recognizable flavor of Hong Kong action on the international map. American action films have spent the past 30 years shamelessly cribbing from Woo’s filmography, so a Hollywood remake of this bonafide classic was inevitable. The news that this is finally happening is not surprising.

What is surprising is that Woo himself is returning to direct and that Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o will star, gender-swapping the role originally played by Chow Yun-Fat. And like that, I’m suddenly interested in a The Killer remake.
