CW Developing Female Gladiator Series ‘The Valiant’, Based on the Novel

11 hours ago

In the last few years, the CW has really made a strong effort to create women-led programming, not just in front of but also behind the camera. With series like Jane the Virgin, iZombie, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, as well as adding a series like Supergirl into its superhero line-up, the CW has proven that it's definitely committed to female-centric programming (that is, of course, accessible to everyone!) Now, Variety is reporting that coming up next for the network is an adaptation of The Valiant, a novel by Lesley Livingston that follows "a Celtic princess on … »

Amazon’s ‘Galaxy Quest’ TV Series Is Back in Development

12 hours ago

The idea of a Galaxy Quest TV series has been around for awhile, and nearly came to fruition a few years ago before Alan Rickman's unfortunate passing in 2016. At the time, the movie's screenwriter Robert Gordon was heading up the revival, but THR is reporting that Paul Scheer (The League) will be taking over those duties for this new iteration of the beloved film over. What exactly the Amazon series will cover is still in question, though. Since production was halted after Rickman's death, it seems like there was some idea to bring back the original … »

‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’ Review: Maximum Reynolds Meets Maximum Jackson

12 hours ago

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are movie stars for a reason. They may not always pick the most successful properties, but when they’re in their element, audiences connect with them and want to see them do more. While actors typically look for roles that will challenge them and broaden their range (a move that’s both creatively fulfilling and career savvy), there’s something to be said for playing the type that created a fanbase in the first place. In The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Reynolds is playing the wise-ass we all know and love and Jackson is … »

The Best Sci-Fi Movies on Netflix Right Now

13 hours ago

Last Updated: August 17th Science-fiction is arguably the best genre in the entire cinematic arena. It’s an incredibly flexible and encompassing field that allows writers, filmmakers, and actors to show off their creativity without being hampered by the confines of other genres. All sci-fi films can have elements of action, drama, romance, adventure, and mystery (with the best ones having a mixture of sub-genres) without blurring the lines; the same cannot always be said the other way around. In essence, science-fiction is a genre that offers something for everyone. With that in mind, we’ve … »

Star Wars: The Obi-Wan Kenobi Standalone Film Is Finally in the Works

13 hours ago

The inevitable Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff movie is officially in the works. Per THR, Lucasfilm is in early talks with  Billy Elliot and The Hours director Stephen Daldry to direct a standalone movie about the Jedi Master. The report makes it clear that "talks are at the earliest stages" and there is no script for the project yet. If the deal closes, Daldry would oversee the development and screenwriting process alongside the Lucasfilm team. To address the question on everybody's minds, it's not yet known if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role. McGregor took over the iconic role, … »

Scoot McNairy on ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Season 4 and Ending on Their Terms

13 hours ago

One of my favorite shows on any channel is AMC's Halt and Catch Fire. Over the course of its first three seasons, the fictional drama has followed a dynamic group of characters as they navigate the rise of the personal computer in the 1980s. Now about to enter its fourth and final season, the show has entered the 90s and with it the birth of the World Wide Web. While the ratings on Halt and Catch Fire have never been what it deserved, that hasn’t stopped creators and showrunners Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers from producing a … »

‘The Jetsons’ to Make the Jump from Animation to Live-Action in ABC Series

15 hours ago

Two of the most famous families in TV history happen to be animated characters from extreme ends of the timeline. Hanna-Barbera's Stone Age family The Flintstones debuted on ABC in 1960, followed by the Space Age family The Jetsons which debuted on the network in 1962, ABC's first program to be broadcast in color. The two hit shows appeared in a crossover animated TV movie The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones in 1987 but only The Flintstones found itself getting the live-action feature film treatment in 1994 and 2000. Now, The Jetsons are getting a similar opportunity … »

‘Thor: Ragnarok’: 18 New Images Prepare for the End of the Universe

16 hours ago

Marvel has released 18 new images from Thor: Ragnarok. The upcoming sequel sees Thor (Chris Hemsworth) imprisoned on the other side of the universe and forced to put together a team in order to stop the ruthless Goddess of Death, Hela (Cate Blanchett). From what we’ve seen so far, the movie looks like an absolute blast and a far cry from the first two Thor movies. While some fans have cited a look that’s similar to Guardians of the Galaxy, I would say that Ragnarok still looks like it has its own personality. Yes, there are big, bold, … »

‘It’ Opening Weekend to Scare off Box Office Competition with Possible September Record

16 hours ago

September is looking to be a very good month for Warner Bros. and New Line thanks to It, the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King's tome of terror. The horror film has been generating plenty of positive buzz weeks in advance of its September 8th debut and the marketing machine has been steadily revving up over the summer. That's all good news for fans of the book who have been anticipating the new adaptation, but the better news is that a strong box office opening is in the works for the Andrés Muschietti-directed picture. THR reports … »

‘Star Wars: Han Solo’: Ron Howard Teases an Imperial Connection

17 hours ago

Ron Howard isn’t shy about sharing minor teases from the upcoming Han Solo movie, and yesterday he shared another featuring a familiar-looking helmet: The Empire Looms Large pic.twitter.com/IN7GiiJtXY — Ron Howard (@RealRonHoward) August 16, 2017 For those who are still wondering, that looks a lot like a Death Star trooper’s helmet. However, Howard only tweeted “The Empire Looms Large,” so while an Imperial presence is likely, that doesn’t necessarily mean the Death Star is in play. Keep in mind, overall we’ve seen very little of the Empire when you think about it. We’… »

‘Death Note’: First Clip Reveals L and Light’s First Atmospheric Meeting

17 hours ago

Netflix has revealed the first clip from Adam Wingard's Death Note adaptation and ... it's certainly an interesting choice to start out with. For newcomers to the story, which began as Japanese manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, and has already been adapted into an anime series as well as a live-action TV show and movies, this is a tough introduction when told out of context. So I'll do what this clip does not and provide a little for you. Essentially the plot of Death Note follows Light Turner (né Yagami), as … »

‘What Happened to Monday’ Review: Noomi Rapace Has an Exhausting Week

17 hours ago

Tommy Wirkola’s What Happened to Monday starts out with a lot of promise, which makes its eventual fall is even more frustrating. The movie has a rich, interesting concept that could deal with identity and family, but rather than go for human interactions, the film always runs to the safety of gory violence and dystopian clichés to the point where a unique premise eventually becomes a painfully predictable action flick. Despite strong performances from Noomi Rapace, What Happened to Monday never lives up to its promising start, and by the end it becomes an utter chore. Set in … »

‘The Defenders’: New Trailer Has Sigourney Weaver Threatening Marvel’s Heroes

18 hours ago

Tomorrow, The Defenders will finally premiere, and Netflix has released a new trailer to get you excited for the show that will see Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) teaming up to stop an evil force led by Sigourney Weaver’s enigmatic character. It’s the culmination of four TV shows, and it will be interesting to see if it all comes together. In her review, Allison Keene points out that the show gets good once it gets going, but it doesn’t hit the ground running, which is unfortunate … »

Does ‘Superbad’ Hold Up After 10 Years?

18 hours ago

The use of cellphones, G-strings, sayings like “fo sho”, and one or two pop songs place Superbad in this day and age but much of the look of Greg Mottola’s second feature has a throwback quality. It’s apparent in the constant use of 1970s and 80s lovelorn soul-funk, the use of VHS surveillance, and a predilection for archaic fashion. No one uses a computer but Michael Cera’s Evan plays Playstation. The internet must exist and yet the best way to obtain alcohol is from the local liquor store with an unconvincing fake ID. The cops … »

‘Broadchurch’ Series Finale: How Things Ended, and Each Character’s Fate

18 hours ago

Spoilers for all of Broadchurch's three seasons follow. When it first premiered, Broadchurch was a juggernaut of a crime series. In it, a heinous act was committed in a beautiful locale where almost anyone could be a suspect. It was twisty, haunting, and engrossing. The emotional score combined with the lush cinematograph and affecting performances across the board elevated Broadchurch beyond a typical crime drama. It forged such a memorable legacy (and one forgettable U.S. TV remake) that it's still held up as a standard of measurement by which all subsequent crime dramas are weighed. And while … »

St. Vincent to Direct Gender-Bent ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ Movie

16 August 2017 4:32 PM, PDT

Some film projects just appeal to you on a personal, spiritual level. For me, this is one of those jams. Annie Clark, better known as her stage name as musician St. Vincent, is set to direct an adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray for Lionsgate. But that's just the start of the good news. Per Variety, he script will come from Elle screenwriter David Birke, who is also set to pen Screen Gems' upcoming Slender Man movie, and they'll be putting a twist on Oscar Wilde's classic Victorian novel by gender-swapping the titular lead character. … »

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ International Trailer Features a Marvel Cameo

16 August 2017 3:00 PM, PDT

A new international trailer for Thor: Ragnarok has landed online that reveals one of the film’s Marvel cameos—although if you’ve seen Doctor Strange, it’s not exactly a spoiler. Indeed, in one of the post-credits sequences for Doctor Strange we saw that Chris Hemsworth’s Thor comes to Earth seeking Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) help. This trailer features a new scene between the two in which Strange teases some major goings-on ahead for the God of Thunder. Aside from that, however, this trailer features most of the same footage from the most recent domestic … »
