uglies movie

It’s been a while since a dystopian YA novel got itself a film adaptation, so here comes Uglies! McG is set to direct the film based on the Scott Westerfeld book set in a future where everyone is forced to have extreme cosmetic surgery when they reach the age of 16. Joey King is set to star in the movie, which is headed to Netflix. Uglies spawned three sequels: Pretties, Specials, and Extras, so there’s a good chance Netflix wants to launch a franchise here.

the babysitter sequel

The Babysitter is back, baby! Well…sort of. Samara Weaving played the titular babysitter in the 2017 horror-comedy from director McG, but since she’s kind of a big deal now – winning raves for her work in Ready or Not and appearing in the upcoming Bill and Ted Face the Music – she’s not returning for the questionable sequel. But some of the other cast members are back, even though they died in the first film. The magic of movies! The sequel, The Babysitter: Killer Queen, will arrive on Netflix next month.

‘True Lies’ Is Getting a TV Series Reboot at FOX

True Lies TV Series

Though Terminator 2: Judgment Day is obviously the more acclaimed and beloved collaboration between director James Cameron and star Arnold Schwarzenegger, there is still plenty of love for the action comedy True Lies out there. The film has inexplicably yet to be released in high-definition, and you can’t even find it to download or stream anywhere. Thankfully, James Cameron says that will change sometime in the near future, but we don’t know when.

In the meantime, it looks like we may get a new version of True Lies on television before the original movie ends up available in an HD format. James Cameron is executive producing a TV series reboot of True Lies in the works at 20th Century Fox Television, but unfortunately, there’s one name involved that makes us a little less excited about this prospective TV show.

The road to get a Masters of the Universe movie in theaters again has been paved with endless pit stops and speed bumps.

Now we have some good news, some potentially decent news, and some great news regarding the development of the fantasy adaptation.

The good news is, Sony Pictures has officially given a 2019 release date to the film. The potentially decent news is there’s a new writer on board. And the great news is that McG is no longer involved as director. Find about the Masters of the Universe release date and development after the jump. Read More »

Lethal Weapon TV Series Trailer

There was a slight sense of dread when Fox announced their Lethal Weapon television series. When it comes to film to TV adaptations, shows like Fargo are the exception, not the rule. These adaptations rarely transcend their predecessor or take the story in a new direction, and Lethal Weapon does stumble in that regard. The pilot is, however, far from the misfire some people predicted after we saw the off-putting trailer for the show. Its quality is inconsistent, especially when it comes to the jokes, but Lethal Weapon, for what it is, is just fine.

Below, read our Lethal Weapon Comic-Con reaction.
