Remember The Predator? Shane Black‘s sequel/reboot hit theaters this year, but it seems like everyone already forgot about it already. Maybe we’d all still be talking about The Predator right now if it had kept one of the script’s early ideas intact: Predator-monkey hybrids. That’s right – at one point, The Predator was going to feature Predator DNA mixed with monkeys and other animals. But it never came to pass. Instead we got Thomas Jane telling terrible jokes! See The Predator concept art below.

Not to open up a can of worms, but one of the major complaints regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the way the film handled Luke Skywalker’s story arc. Several fans were outraged that Luke would be hiding out on an island, ignoring his friends. The blame fell squarely on Rian Johnson, with many accusing him of not understanding Luke as a character. But here’s a twist: newly surfaced concept art created before both The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens proves that this was the direction Luke’s story was heading all along. In fact, it might have even had a darker twist. Read More »
Luke Skywalker remained out of sight, but never out of mind, through much of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Then he appeared as a bearded Mark Hamill in the final few seconds of the film. But we almost saw a glimpse of Luke earlier in the film, through the tumultuous vision that Rey receives when she picks up Luke’s long lost lightsaber. The twist: he wouldn’t have been played by Hamill but by actor Robert Boulter, in a re-enactment of the famous The Empire Strikes Back duel.
And now, we know what he would’ve looked like.

In early October, Fox Searchlight announced the start of shooting for the horror-thriller Antlers, a mysterious project produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by Scott Cooper (Hostiles). The film stars Keri Russell in her first major horror feature role, as well as Jesse Plemons and young actor Jeremy T. Thomas.

And the latest Antlers set photo is the creepiest one yet.

Although the Quantum Realm played a pivotal part in the plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp, we still don’t know much about this realm. Only reachable when Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) shrinks so impossibly small that he enters a whole other dimension, the Quantum Realm was meant to be impossible to escape — which is why the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) has spent the past 31 years stuck there.
But how did Janet van Dyne survive this abstract, nightmarish realm? By turning into a road warrior-cum-desert nomad it seems — all worn threads and cool steampunk-y masks. But the original Ant-Man and the Wasp concept art for Janet van Dyne was completely different, and suggests an intriguing expanded story for the Quantum Realm.
