Minecraft Movie Release Date

It’s been a long road to the big screen for the popular world-building video game Minecraft. Warner Bros. Pictures landed the rights back in 2014, and since then directors like Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) and Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) have come and gone from the project. More recently, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist director Peter Sollett signed on to helm the Minecraft movie, and now the studio has given it an official release date. Read More »

Detective Pikachu Early Reaction

The first reaction to Detective Pikachu is here, and it’s very positive. Said reaction comes from filmmaker Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and since he’s the only person posting his thoughts on the film, we’re going to share them. That’s how this works, folks. According to the Kong: Skull Island filmmaker, the live-action/animation hybrid featuring Ryan Reynolds as the voice of a crime-solving Pokémon breaks the video game curse. That’s a bold claim, and I really hope he’s correct.

tomb raider sequel

While the Tomb Raider reboot with Alicia Vikander didn’t generate much buzz, it did well-enough at the box office worldwide for MGM and Warner Bros. to go ahead with a sequel. And they’ve hired a new writer to get the job done. Amy Jump, who co-wrote Kill ListA Field in EnglandHigh-Rise, and more, will handle the script. Plot details are still buried deep beneath the earth, but the first film was more of a prequel, so hopefully this follow-up will cut with the world-building and make with the tomb raiding.

detective pikachu teaser

As if the marketing for Detective Pikachu couldn’t get any more charming, Warner Bros. has released a tongue-in-cheek “audition” video spotlighting a slew of beloved Pokemon and bringing back what many old-school Pokémon loved best about the franchise: statistics! You know what I’m talking about, Pokemon players — the trading cards and video games are what made this franchise such a global phenomenon, and the new Detective Pikachu teaser does a great job of tapping into that. Watch the Detective Pikachu “audition” teaser below.

Sonic the Hedgehog Footage Reaction

You want a Sonic the Hedgehog footage reaction? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re all on board with the Detective Pikachu movie at this point, right? But what about the other CGI-enhanced video game film hitting theaters this year? You know – Sonic the Hedgehog? Unlike Pikachu, no Sonic footage has been released to the public yet. We don’t even really know what Sonic himself looks like in the film, save for an image of his silhouette on one poster, and another posting highlighting his upsettingly muscular calves. But now, some Sonic the Hedgehog footage has made its debut at CinemaCon, and we have the details.

Detective Pikachu Footage Reaction

Pokémon is a worldwide video game phenomenon, so there was always going to be excitement when a live-action film adaptation came to theaters. But we’re a little flabberghasted that the first attempt at bringing the Nintendo video game franchise to life in this fashion is in the form of Detective Pikachu. Even more shocking is the fact that the trailers we’ve seen so far have been absolutely fantastic, making even the biggest naysayers curious about how this movie will turn out.

Thankfully, /Film’s own Peter Sciretta and Ben Pearson are attending CinemaCon in Las Vegas, and a bunch of new Detective Pikachu footage was shown to the crowd. So does the movie really have the goods to entertain general audiences? Does Ryan Reynolds make for the best Pokémon ever? Find out what our team thought of the sneak peek below. Read More »

detective pikachu tv spots

Can you flawlessly rap the iconic “PokeRap” that listed off all of the 150 original Pokemon? No? Me neither, though I used to because I was the coolest 1st grader in the world. But if Warner Bros. were to create a new PokeRap to include every single Pokemon that appears in the Detective Pikachu TV spots, it would probably take a full hour. The latest batch of Detective Pikachu TV spots are jam-packed with glimpses of beloved Pokemon, including Gyarados, Mewtwo, Eevee, and more that I don’t recognize because there have been five (!) generations of Pokemon since I last watched. Maybe we do need a new PokeRap after all.

detective pikachu box office

Video game-related movies don’t tend to do so well at the box office. But Detective Pikachu might change all that. Early box office tracking for the comedy is strong, indicating audiences really want to see Ryan Reynolds as a crime-solving Pokémon. It probably helps that the movie actually looks surprisingly good, which I don’t think many of us were expecting. More on the Detective Pikachu box office below.

If you’re lucky, then you’ve forgotten most of the superhero bomb that was Green Lantern.

Now the two are reuniting for the upcoming video game based action comedy Free Guy. Read More »
