Hollywood has been sleeping on a Rip Van Winkle movie, but it looks like they’re about to get a wake up call.

Cynthia Erivo, who broke out last year in a big way with roles in Steve McQueen’s heist film Widows and Drew Goddard’s period thriller Bad Times at the El Royale, is attached to star in a musical film adaptation of the classic Washington Irving short story. Josh Gad (Frozen, Beauty and the Beast) hatched the idea, and the writer of the upcoming Plastic Man movie is on board to write the screenplay. What a combo!

New Muppets Series on Disney+

After being off the air for 17 years, The Muppets attempted a television comeback on ABC in 2015. The series, titled The Muppets, was a documentary-style workplace comedy along the lines of The Office about the Muppets working on a late night program starring Miss Piggy. But audiences weren’t too keen on the series, and it was canceled after a single season. But don’t count The Muppets out yet.

Nearly a full year ago, we learned that Disney was interested in reviving The Muppets for a new series on the upcoming streaming service Disney+. Now some details on who’s developing the show have come to light, and it’s a crew who already has a comfortable relationship with The House of Mouse. Could this be the big 2019 surprise that Kermit was teasing recently? Read More »

Little Monsters Review

There’s an endless number of zombie movies out there. So if you’re going to tackle this particular horror subgenre, you better have something unique to bring to the table. Thankfully, Australian filmmaker Abe Forsythe has exactly that. This the heartwarming story of an irresponsible, immature, and profane uncle and his adorable, gluten-intolerant, tractor and Darth Vader-obsessed nephew. But it’s blended it with a 1980s-inspired zombie invasion, and the result is a bloody laugh riot called Little Monsters. Read More »

Artemis Fowl trailer

A boy genius is on his way to fill the hole that a certain boy wizard left seven years ago. Though Artemis Fowlbased on the popular series of the same name by Eoin Colfer, has long deserved a big-screen adaptation in its own right.

The newest live-action film from Disney and Murder on the Orient Express director Kenneth Branagh, Artemis Fowl is a magical urban fantasy that follows a 12-year-old Irish boy genius who hatches an impossible scheme: to kidnap a fairy and ransom it for gold. But this is more than just a childish flight of fancy, the titular Artemis has discovered a sprawling world of fairies, leprechauns (or rather, LEPrecons), and tech-savvy centaurs that could aid him in his grand scheme for wealth and family.

The Penguin

Todd Phillips is making a Joker movie. Henry Cavill may or may not be finished playing Superman. The DC Universe is in an odd place right now, so even though there are a few movies coming out soon that could help provide a steadier foundation, one of the biggest of them is Matt Reeves’ The Batman. It’s impossible to overstate how important that character is to Warner Bros., and while the actual plot of the movie is still hidden in the shadows of a Gotham City alley, one thing has become exceptionally clear: Josh Gad (Beauty and the Beast) and Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya) really want to play The Penguin.

That film, Russ & Roger Go Beyond, later attracted Will Ferrell and Josh Gad in the lead roles, with Sing Street filmmaker John Carney hired to direct. The film was very close to beginning production, and then the plug was pulled. And now we know why.

artemis fowl casting

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally getting an Artemis Fowl movie.

Nearly a decade after the Harry Potter-inspired children’s fantasy phenomenon breathed its last fiery breath, and on the tail end of the fading YA dystopian craze, Artemis Fowl is coming. And it has a pretty impressive cast and crew. Kenneth Branagh will be taking the helm of the Disney adaptation of Eoin Colfer’s children’s book series, which follows the manipulative child genius Artemis Fowl as he kidnaps an elf to ransom her for a fortune. It’s a pretty unforgiving role for any child actor, but after months of searching, Branagh and his team have finally landed on a newcomer to play the role of the cunning, slightly cruel, and compelling protagonist.

When We're Together video

When Frozen was released in 2013, it became a smash hit on a scale that caught Walt Disney Animation by surprise. Part of the reason for its success was the movie’s soundtrack, which was full of catchy and memorable songs – chief among them being “Let It Go,” the movie’s most show-stopping musical number. It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Frozen 2 will produce a song that’s on that same level, but Olaf’s Frozen Adventure – Disney’s new holiday featurette that continues the Frozen story – certainly tries with “When We’re Together,” a new song that’s gunning for the top spot on your holiday playlists this season. Check out the official lyric video below.
