Batman Forever Extended Cut

Batman Forever was already being discussed online more than usual this year thanks to the film celebrating its 25th anniversary. Then when director Joel Schumacher passed away recently, even more love was poured out for the goofy DC Comics sequel. Now the chatter has grown even more because there have been rumblings of a 170-minute “much darker, more serious” cut of the movie that’s just sitting somewhere waiting to be released to the masses.

The latest: Little Monsters, an all-ages approach to the monsters coming from Josh Cooley, director of Toy Story 4.

scarface remake update new

Hollywood has been trying to say hello to a Scarface remake for a few years now, and it recently found an interesting, if surprising, new director in the form of Luca Guadagnino. Working with a script by the Coen Brothers, the Call Me By Your Name filmmaker is tackling the remake of the 1983 Brian De Palma movie starring Al Pacino, itself a remake of a film from 1932. While the ’32 Scarface was set in the 1920s, and the ’83 Scarface took place in 1980, Guadagnino says his Scarface is going to be “very timely.”

Crawl and High Tension filmmaker Alexandre Aja is set to direct, while Chilling Adventures of Sabrina cast member Adeline Rudolph is set to star. In the series, a girl goes missing, her body later found dismembered. That’s creepy enough, but to make things extra unsettling, the dead girl later turns up at school alive and well, and acting as if nothing happened.

The Princess Bride remake scene

Last year, we heard rumblings that Hollywood was considering tackling a The Princess Bride remake. Frankly, that sounded like an awful idea because Rob Reiner’s 1987 movie managed to strike a perfect balance of tones and it seemed unlikely that any new version would be able to recapture its spirit – especially without original writer William Goldman on board (Goldman died in 2018.) Then, a few weeks ago, Jason Reitman (Juno, Ghostbusters: Afterlife) announced that he had recruited an A-list cast for a Princess Bride remake for Quibi that was shot in everyone’s backyards during the coronavirus quarantine, all to help raise money for the World Central Kitchen charity. How could anyone be mad about that?

Now Quibi has released a lengthy clip from the homemade version of the movie on YouTube, so keep scrolling to see an all-star cast recreate the movie’s memorable sword fight, the Man in Black’s confrontation with Fezzik, and the hilarious battle of wits. Read More »

Parasite Black and White Cut

Bong Joon-ho was frequently compared to Alfred Hitchcock after the release of his Oscar-winning masterwork Parasite. And soon, audiences will get to see Parasite as if it was shot in Hitchcock’s time (at least, early on in his career). A Bong-approved Black-and-White edition of Parasite is coming soon to U.K. theaters and to the Curzon Home Cinema streaming service, and to mark the occasion, a monochromatic poster has been released. But like the film itself, the Parasite black and white poster offers a whole new perspective.
