With Deadpool, Fox successfully (like, really successfully — record-breaking-successfully) rebooted a character who had previously been horrifically adapted in another, lesser film, and they did so without recasting the role. Miracles do exist. Now that Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth has been given a second cinematic life, could the same be done with another actor from X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Liev Schreiber, perhaps?
A few weeks back, Divergent series director Robert Schwentke abruptly dropped out of the final sequel, Ascendant, a little over a month before the latest installment hits theaters. With Allegiant on the horizon and one more Divergent sequel to go, Lionsgate has quickly found Schwentke’s replacement in Age of Adaline director Lee Toland Krieger.
Lucasfilm released an announcement video a couple of weeks ago to kick off production on Star Wars: Episode VIII, showing just a tiny glimpse of footage that made it look as if Rian Johnson was picking up where J.J. Abrams left off. If you had any doubts that Episode VIII would begin where The Force Awakens ends, Daisy Ridley has confirmed that this is definitely the case — and that Luke Skywalker will have much more to do this time around.
Shane Black’s Predator sequel was first announced a couple of years ago, though with Black completing The Nice Guys and working on a western pilot for Amazon, Fox had yet to make any promises about a release date — much less when Black and collaborator Fred Dekker would begin filming. But with the studio setting several new release dates over the weekend, it seems that the duo are finally gearing up to head into production on The Predator.
Ah, the Razzies. Looking at the list of nominees for the annual "worst film awards" increasingly makes it seem as though the people behind the Razzies don't actually watch the worst films of the year, and while Fifty Shades of Grey was hardly 2015’s worst cinematic byproduct, the film managed to sweep the Razzies with five "awards." Fantastic Four was right behind it with three awards, with both films tying for Worst Picture of 2015. At least they got it half-right.
Following in the footsteps of previous unlimited passes for films like Spectre and Interstellar, Regal is offering a fans a chance to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as many times as they want (or until their brains melt and there’s nothing left but the hollow shell of a person). There is a catch, of course: There’s a limited number of these special passes, which will allow you to see Zack Snyder’s superhero epic as frequently as you’d like during the film’s entire theatrical run.
Before it even had a chance to break records at the box office and become the highest-grossing X-Men film, Deadpool was already given the go-ahead for a sequel and fans began considering the possibilities for this new corner of the X-Men universe — will Deadpool appear in X-Force? Will he cross over with his mutant brethren in other films? Not so fast, according to the writers behind the Merc With a Mouth’s solo debut. They’ve got some big plans, but they’re not getting ahead of themselves.
Spring is in the air, and so are a few highly-anticipated new movie releases as we begin our climb to the eventful blockbuster days of summer. In addition to big-budget outings like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 10 Cloverfield Lane, next month also brings exciting indies like The Lobster, Krisha and Midnight Special. Read on for our guide to March’s new movie releases.
Surprise — Paramount has delayed the release date of their upcoming sequel to The Ring yet again, marking the third time that the studio has assigned a new release date to Rings, following a series of shifts for their long-developing Friday the 13th reboot / sequel / who-knows-what-it-is-anymore. Rings will now hit theaters this October…supposedly, maybe, possibly, we’ll see.
Not to be confused with Disney’s ever-growing slate of live-action remakes which includes a Pinocchio project, Warner Bros.’ has had a Pinocchio movie of their own in development for years, with Robert Downey Jr. attached to play the role of puppet creator Gepetto. After repeatedly failing to secure a director, WB’s Pinocchio may have finally found its maker in Ron Howard, who is reportedly coming aboard to direct the long-gestating live-action take on the classic fairy tale.
