Production has officially begun on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in Atlanta, and James Gunn has shared a new set photo to kick things off. That photo features a new logo for the upcoming sequel, which doesn’t hit theaters until next year. And while we’ve been very patiently waiting for casting announcements, Gunn assures fans that we’ll get the full scoop next week.
Hardcore Henry premiered at TIFF last fall under the title Hardcore, and swiftly inspired a bidding war over distribution rights for the innovative first-person POV action flick. Directed by Ilya Naishuller and executive-produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Hardcore takes the concept of first-person shooter video games and transforms it into one relentless, action-packed and gnarly film that’s sure to draw comparisons to RoboCop.
Does Bruce Wayne know any other emotions besides brooding, or any other facial expressions besides “righteous scowl”? This is perhaps one of the greatest unanswered questions of the modern, grittier era of Batman. And judging by this new photo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the answer appears to be: nope.
An Alien prequel starring Danny McBride? This could seriously be the movie we never knew we always wanted. In a bit of news that is equal parts surprising and kind of awesome, the former Eastbound and Down star and master of obnoxious humor is in talks to join Alien: Covenant, which seems to indicate that Ridley Scott may very well indeed be a genius. An evil genius, but a genius.
Rumors have persisted for years that Lionsgate wasn’t quite done with the Saw franchise — even though the last sequel was titled Saw 3D: The Final Chapter. But titles are meaningless as long as there’s money to be made, and with that pesky Paranormal Activity franchise out of the way (for now), it looks like Lionsgate is reviving the franchise that introduced us to James Wan, Jigsaw and a multi-film timeline so convoluted it would give Quentin Tarantino the spins.
Universal is kicking off their rebooted monster universe in 2017 with The Mummy, with plans to redo classics like The Wolf Man, Bride of Frankenstein and The Creature From the Black Lagoon. While the studio’s mysterious strategy is still taking shape, they’ve lined up a major star to join Tom Cruise in their new shared monsters universe, casting Johnny Depp in their reboot of The Invisible Man.
Fact: Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the best films of 2015, if not of all time. Fact: Charlize Theron is an amazing actress who’s pretty great at playing not-so-nice characters and stone cold badasses. Fact: Fury Road proved that she could be even more badass when you put her behind the wheel, leading us to daydream about seeing Theron in a Fast and Furious movie. So here’s an even better fact: Fast 8 might be making those dreams come true.
In news that should shock pretty much no one given the current state of superhero studio films, a Deadpool sequel is already in the works, with Fox reportedly giving the Merc With a Mouth’s follow-up the green light before his first solo outing even hits theaters. Box office tracking for the R-rated superhero film indicates that it’s going to perform pretty well, and early word-of-mouth from promotional screenings has been fairly positive (though the film is far more divisive among critics).
A few weeks ago, Disney and Lucasfilm changed the release date of Star Wars: Episode VIII to December 2017, partially to capitalize on the holiday season box office and partially to (reportedly) allow for some rewrites. Almost immediately after the announcement, James Cameron’s long-gestated and even longer-promised Avatar sequel moved away from that release date, citing yet another production delay and leaving Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One adaptation to fend for itself against Star Wars. And now it seems that Star Wars will mostly have December 2017 all to itself as Ready Player One has been pushed back to 2018.
Like many funny people before her, Amy Schumer has decided to branch out into more serious acting territory. In addition to starring in an upcoming film with Jennifer Lawrence (which the pair co-wrote) and in an untitled mother / daughter action-comedy project, the comedian and actress has signed on to appear opposite Miles Teller in Thank You for Your Service.
