    Real Steel

    Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) directs Hugh Jackman in a film about an ex-fighter who reinvents himself as a robot boxing mechanic/coach/promoter when human boxing is outlawed. It looks okay for what it is but I can't think of a single Levy directed film I've enjoyed so expectations will have to remain low.
  2. Yeah, they're going there. It's not clear what the nature of the project is in relation to the original. It's being written by Nicole Perlman, writer of Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as the upcoming Black Widow and Captain Marvel.
  3. http://collider.com/chronicles-of-narnia-silver-chair-reboot/ They're continuing the franchise via a reboot. New cast, production, etc.
  4. Yeah, it's not a dead series yet! Diesel called it Furia, but it's maybe supposed to be Furya, with him being a Furyan from Furya. Writing starting next month. The previous one didn't really set the box office alight ($98m), but it also had a small budget ($38m), so didn't do badly. It also went straight to No.1 on home release. So Universal are happy to do another. There's also a TV show being developed, Merc City. It's about mercenaries and bounty hunters in the Riddick universe. It's questionable if a Riddickless show will appeal though. Sounds a bit like SyFy fodder along the lines of Killjoys.
  5. Because the studio seem to be announcing so many films lately, some of which don't need a dedicated thread at this early stage, I thought a similar thread to the Pixar one would make sense. An overview of the films currently in production. Kung-Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom - May 2011 A sequel to the surprisingly enjoyable original with the original cast all set to return along with a bunch of new characters. Plot: Po (Jack Black), Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), Master Tigress (Angelina Jolie), and the rest of The Furious Five will join forces with The SoothSayer (Michelle Yeoh), Master Skunkman (James Woods), Master Croc (Jean-Claude Van Damme), and Master Thundering Rhino (Victor Garber) on their quest to defeat Shen (Gary Oldman), a powerful warrior and save Kung Fu from being destroyed. Charlie Kaufman has also rewritten the script. Puss in Boots - November 2011 This Shrek spin-off has been rumoured ever since the characters appearance in the second film. Finally, with the original franchise put to bed, he gets his own outing. Plot: The film follows Puss in Boots as he tells the tale of his early adventures. He teams with mastermind, Humpty Dumpty and the street-savvy Kitty to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs that could make Puss and his counterparts rich. The Croods - March 2012 Plot: Surviving in a volcanic world is tough enough, but caveman Grug (Cage) gets a rude awakening when an earthquake forces him to leave behind the only world he knows. With his family in tow, he ventures out into the volatile world in search of a new home. The situation becomes even more complicated when Grug's family - in particular his eldest daughter - become smitten with a nomad (Reynolds) they encounter on their dangerous journey. This quirky, imaginative stranger's search for 'tomorrow' is at odds with Grug's reliance on the traditions of yesterday. Directed by Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon), perhaps the studios biggest coup to date, this film will surely be one of the most anticipated due to the director's record and the involvement of Nic Cage and Ryan Reynolds on vocal duties. Madagascar 3 - Summer 2012 No real news other than it is being made. After the first two films does anybody really care? The Guardians of Childhood - November 2012 Based on the William Joyce books and starring Leonardo DiCaprio the film features a group of heroes from various childhood stories - Santa (Christopher Lee), the Easter Bunny (Seth Green), the Tooth Fairy (Miranda Cosgrove), Genie (Hank Azaria), the Sandman (Andy Samberg) and Jack Frost (Leonardo Dicaprio) - who join together in an adventure to stop Pitch the Boogeyman (George Lopez) from sending the world into "eternal darkness". How to Train Your Dragon 2 - 2013 A follow-up to the studios first truly exceptional film. This time DeBlois goes it alone as director but with the rest of the cast returning and plenty of stories from the books to tell, I have high hopes for this. The Pig Scrolls - 2013 After all the Olympian gods go missing, Sibyl has a premonition in which the sun god Apollo tells her to find "the talking pig". Sibyl then sets out looking for the talking pig, Gryllus. She finds him at Big Stavros's Kebab bar where he is forced to entertain customers. Together they set off for the temple at Delphi. Apollo informs Sibyl that she and Gryllus must find a goatherd boy living on top of a mountain. Once Sibyl and Gryllus find the goatherd, (who turns out to be the god Zeus) they set off once more for Apollo's temple at Delphi. It is there that Gryllus, the talking pig, must save the world from utter destruction. Additional: What the author had to say about his work: “I got the idea for The Pig Scrolls when I was rereading Homer's Odyssey and found myself more interested in some of the non-heroic characters in the background. Working on the book gave me a chance to revisit a world I have always loved—that of ancient mythology and history. And, of course, in order to research the character of Gryllus fully, I was forced to eat a huge number of pies.” The Pig Scrolls is set in Ancient Greece, and is about a pig named Gryllus. Gryllus, who was once a member of captain Odesseus’ famous crew, was transformed into a pig by the enchantress Circe. Gryllus, enjoying his quiet life in the woods is soon captured by local hunters when they realize he can talk, and is soon “rescued” by a junior prophetess in training (Sibyl). Sibyl informs Gryllus of a premonition showing her the end of the world. Gryllus believes her to have lost a couple of marbles and escapes, so Sibyl kidnaps him. On their journey to the temple in Delphi, they encounter monsters, gods, a strange goatherd and a scientist who has invented the awesome Atomos Device. Gryllus comes to realize that the entire universe is in the trotters of one talking pig, himself... Dinotrux - TBA Written by Chris Gall, the book takes place in a fictional prehistoric age, when the world was ruled by Dinotrux, creatures that were part trucks, part dinosaurs, with species like the Craneosauraus, Garbageadon and Tyrannosaurus Trux plowing and bulldozing their way across the terrain. Gil's All Fright Diner - TBA In the backwoods southern town of Rockwood, a vampire and a werewolf in a run-down old truck come across Gil's All Night Diner, a 24-hour restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Nearly run out of gas, they stop in at the diner only to discover it is the target of zombie attacks, hauntings, and occult activity. The manager of the diner, Loretta, offers them a job helping her out around the diner, and maybe help solve her zombie problem. In exchange, she'll give them money to help them on their way. They accept. Good Luck Trolls - TBA Yes, there will be an adaptation of the troll dolls that were popular in the '70s and '80s. Boo U - TBA Seth Rogen provides his vocal 'talents' in a film directed by the man responsible for the mediocre, Igor. Rogen will play a ghost who is forced to return to ghost school and improve his haunting skills. Truckers - TBA Yes, it is an adaptation of the Pratchett novels. Rllmuk Thread Imaginary Enemies - TBA The new project will be told from the point of view of the imaginary friends who had long been used as scapegoats by unscrupulous children looking for someone else to blame for their misdeeds. Eventually fed up, those imaginary people come looking for some payback when the kids are grown up. This could be the studios first CGI-live action hybrid. Trollhunters - TBA Produced by Guillermo del Toro. More info in the dedicated thread: here. Alma - TBA See next post.

    Freaks of Nature

  7. Well it has finally been confirmed even if it doesn't have a release date yet. Test footage was shown at Comic-Con and you can read /Film's breakdown below: The test footage sounds great and at least we know it is actually happening, finally.
  8. At least they aren't trying to make it live-action.

    Jack Reacher

    Yesterday at CinemaCon the first footage of "Reacher", previously titled "One Shot"*, was shown and, against all odds the buzz appears to be positive. "Reacher" is an adaptation of the ninth book in the popular Jack Reacher series, a series which sees our 6' 5", ex-military policeman turned drifter criss-cross the United States, discovering the country that his Army career kept him away from. Along the way he uncovers a lot of wrongdoings, headbutts a lot of bad guys and breaks a lot of arms. Reacher is described as a cross between Sherlock Holmes and The Hulk and it's apt. His violence is brutal, quick and methodical and he's yet to meet an opponent that he can't outthink. The reason why the film adaptation was attracting so much negativity right off the bat was in it's choice of lead: Tom Cruise. The 5'7" actor is the polar opposite of how the character is described in the books and even with the series creator, Lee Child, giving Cruise his endorsement the fans (myself included) were outraged. At CinemaCon a video presentation from Cruise was shown before the three scenes showcased, in which he acknowledged the physical differences but asked the fans to give him a chance as he has captured the "spirit" of Reacher; something that Lee Child felt was more important than mere resemblence. Happily, the scenes shown appear to back up Cruise's claim as Screenrant describe his Reacher as "much edgier than Cruise's usual persona - even beyond his turn in Collateral - and portrays Reacher as a hard-edged, anti-hero with a blunt manner and brutal fighting methods." The last scene shown certainly backs this up - I've spoilered it in case anyone objects. I'm a big fan of the Reacher series and this news has perked me right up. I still think Cruise will be a hard sell unless there's some Lord Of The Rings style perspective tricks going on to make him appear taller but it sounds like the filmakers get what appeals about Reacher and have successfully captured it. This has moved back onto my Watch-list. *The name change, which I believe is for the better, is yet to be confirmed as official but at no point did anyone call the film "One Shot" but always referred to it as "Reacher" so I'm guessing it's just not been officially announced yet.

    In The Heart Of The Sea

    ​ Turn out Ron Howard is making a film adaptation of Nathaniel Philbrick's remarkable book that inspired Moby-Dick. Be warned, Cillian Murphy is in it so will be bound to ruin it with his big wooden face. Get the book read, it's cracking. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1390411/
  11. http://deadline.com/2015/08/christian-bale-ferrari-michael-manns-enzo-ferrari-1201502529/ Not much detail yet, but Christian Bale will play Enzo Ferrari in a Michael Mann movie set in 1957. Mann's been working to get this going for 15 years and it's set to shoot next summer.

    Victor Frankenstein

    Because there just aren't enough versions, Fox brings another, starring James McAvoy (Victor) and Daniel Radcliffe (a prettier than usual Igor). Directed by Paul McGuigan and scripted by Max Landis. 25 November in the US and 4 December in the UK.
  13. http://deadline.com/2015/08/trumbo-trailer-bryan-cranston-hollywood-blacklist-screenwriters-1201498024/ Directed by Jay Roach. Based on a true story, Bryan Cranston plays Dalton Trumbo, a screenwriter blacklisted in the '40s when Hollywood was in fear of the Commies. Also stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., David James Elliott, Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Diane Lane, Alan Tudyk and Michael Stuhlbarg. Coming 6th November US, 22 January UK (Booooo)
  14. Winding Refn is an interesting director, I can't say I've enjoyed every film he has made but they've always been memorable at the very least. His latest film has just played at Cannes and early buzz seems to be pretty positive (with some comparing it to Michael Mann's Thief). Synopsis: A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong. The film has a great cast including the aforementioned leads, Gosling and Mulligan as well as Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks and Ron Perlman. There isn't a trailer yet but a couple of clips have been released (note: although the YT video says trailer it really isn't): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ-1PtveVGw The clips don't really give anything away but they are shot nicely and have great music which always bodes well. Cannes early buzz
  15. Funded by Kickstarter, the creature effects company Studio ADI (founders Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr) have funded and made Harbinger Down. With strong influences from the practical creature FX work by Rob Bottin and others on The Thing (1982) and partially driven by their experiences on The Thing (2011), they wanted to produce a full-length feature film using just practical models and animatronics. Trailer: About Harbinger Down: http://us.harbingerdown.com/index.html
  16. Arnie's new film is a pretty serious looking Zombie drama, where he has to cope with his daughter becoming infected. I think it looks brilliant.
  17. Well the rumour was true. Announced at Comic Con with a single piece of concept art (see below) It is set to be released on August 1st 2014 and for those unfamiliar about the comics, here is the Wiki page

    Sound of My Voice

    Last year there was two cult-based hits at Sundance; Martha Marcy May Marlene and Sound of My Voice. The latter has taken a while to get to the screens (probably because of the fact M4 got there earlier) but in April it will finally get a wider theatrical release. The film also stars Brit Marling who received rave reviews for her performance in Another Earth last year. Synopsis: Peter and Lorna, a young Silver Lake couple, delve into the underworld of a cult that meets in the San Fernando valley. At the center of the group is an enigmatic young woman named Maggie who never leaves her basement chamber. The members follow Maggie blindly—growing her food, obsessively sanitizing the house, giving her their own blood for transfusions. But why? We follow Peter and Lorna as they smuggle hidden cameras into Maggie’s basement bent on exposing her as a charlatan and freeing the members from her spell. First 12-minutes
  21. Although we have already had two films about Ip Man I am interested in what Wong Kar Wai brings to the table. The film stars Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi and fight choreography by Yuen Woo-ping but a release date is not forthcoming (as is the way with all of Kar Wai's films). The above teasers are both focused on the same fight but they do show different footage. In truth the teasers have a Matrix Revolutions vibe but I'm sure the rest of the film will be anything but.
  22. Guess who's back old chum! Not sure if any of the villains are actually still alive to lend their elderly vocal cords to the project. Still, there's a 97% chance it'll be better than whatever grimfest Zack Snyder sharts out.
