Titanic board game v2

Rob Reiner’s film adaptation of The Princess Bride came out in 1987. James Cameron’s Titanic was released a decade later in 1997. But since time is a meaningless morass of nothingness in the throes of a global pandemic, now is as good a time as ever for those movies to receive new tabletop game adaptations. Get the details on both of them below.

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 »

the princess bride fan film

Quibi is making one last-ditch effort to bring on subscribers: by making a celebrity fan film of The Princess Bride just as you wish. A handful of celebrities got together (virtually) to recreate the 1987 Rob Reiner comedy-fantasy classic, The Princess Bride, and inconceivably, they got the director on board as well. The idea was proposed by filmmaker Jason Reitman, who recruited celebrities like Jennifer Garner, Jack Black, Diego Luna, Josh Gad, Tiffany Haddish, and more to create a The Princess Bride fan film and raise funds for the World Central Kitchen charity. And you can watch it all right on your phone…on the Quibi app you definitely haven’t deleted by now.

the princess bride remake

In this era where IP is king, even the most sacrosanct of movies might be considered for a remake. I’m talking, of course, about The Princess Bride. Rob Reiner and William Goldman’s beloved 1987 fantasy-adventure film is a stone-cold classic, one that nearly every generation has seen and loved (and if they haven’t, they really should). And yet even this classic is being considered for a remake. The CEO of Sony Pictures has suggested that a The Princess Bride remake is in discussions with several “very famous people” interested in redoing the film based on the satirical novel by Goldman.

Deadpool 2 PG-13 Cut

Before the weekend kicked off, the surprise news came from 20th Century Fox that an Untitled Deadpool Movie would suddenly be dropping into the December 21, 2018 release date that was once occupied by Alita: Battle Angel. Word on the street is that instead of being an entirely new Deadpool movie, this will be a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, and a photo posted online by Ryan Reynolds would seem to indicate how that’s going to work, and it involves Fred Savage reprising his role from The Princess Bride.
