  1. Just for a change, someone's making a Stephen King (and Peter Straub) adaptation. Josh Boone is writing, and maybe directing, for Amblin. He's also doing King's The Stand (though that's on hold right now) and Revival. It's about a boy going to a parallel world to find a talisman to save his mother. It was originally going to be a mini-series, but they're doing a movie instead. I've seen mention that it could be a bit much for a movie and it would have been better off as a mini-series?
  2. Based on a true story about British explorer Percy Fawcett on a trip to find the mythical City of Z in Brazil in 1925. It's Amazon on the Amazon. Stars Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, and Tom Holland and directed by James Gray. 21 April 2017 in US.
  3. http://deadline.com/2017/09/men-in-black-spinoff-may-17-2019-steven-spielberg-walter-parkes-laurie-macdonald-matt-holloway-art-marcum-1202179483/ MiB 23 was supposed to be next, but this new movie will be leapfrogging it. Already given a release date of 17 May, 2019. No Smith and Jones. From the writers of Iron Man and, er..., Transformers: The Last Knight. Supposed to be a more global scale.
  4. http://deadline.com/2017/08/super-troopers-2-trailer-broken-lizard-sequel-jay-chandrasekhar-1202157309/ Apparently someone discovered that markers for the US-Canada border are wrong and certain areas become contested territory. Naturally, the Troopers are patrolling the contested area, imposing US law on Canadians who aren't happy about it. The cast are back (Including Brian Cox and Lynda Carter), adding Rob Lowe and Tyler Labine.

    Trying to get the kids worried?
  6. The Farthest, a documentary on the Voyager space probes, it's been getting very good reviews, recommended whether you're into space or not. I've heard it's definitely worth seeing on a big screen too. I'm not sure how wide a release this is getting in the UK, but it's apparently opening in the UK on 1 September. It's already showing in the US. My local's having a screening this week too, with a directer Q&A, which I intend to go to.
  7. When Tim Miller dropped out of Deadpool 2, they said they'd make sure he got something major for him. Well, this is it. Good luck.
  8. This isn't what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be played straight in the Ninjago theme, totally separate to the other movies, but it seems to have similar humour to the Lego and Batman movies. Also, I learned Ninjago isn't pronounced how I thought is was.
  9. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/stranger-things-director-helm-sci-fi-thriller-malignant-at-fox-1027341 Fox are making a movie of the graphic novel Malignant Man, by James Wan and Michael Alan Nelson. It's to be directed by relative newcomer Rebecca Thomas. The story is about Alex Gates, a man with terminal cancer. But then it's discovered the tumor is actually an alien parasite and has given him powers. Naturally, he goes off to fight some bad dudes.
  10. Welcome to the John Wick Cinematic Universe. John Wick producers have acquired a script for Ballerina, which they intend to place in the John Wick universe. As you probably guessed from the name and setting, it's a female led action flick. Said to be in the vein of La Femme Nikita, but more pulpy and stylised, like Tarantino or Vaughn. It's been written by a young newbie, taken on by Tony Stark Robert Downey Jr.'s company as an intern but is quickly rising due to apparent talent. Big fan of Shane Black, apparently. The movie is about a young woman, raised as an assassin, hunting other assassins who killed her family. Not written as a Wick spin-off, but Lionsgate beat off (fnar) WB and Universal to buy it with a view to expanding the Wick franchise.
  11. Taraji P. Henson stars in an action thriller about a hitwoman working for an organised crime family in Boston. But things change when she meets a young boy. Also stars Neal McDonough, Danny Glover, Xander Berkeley and Billy Brown. Coming on 12 January.
  12. Not exactly a superhero movie, but the story of the creation of Wonder Woman. http://deadline.com/2017/07/professor-marston-the-wonder-women-trailer-luke-evans-rebecca-hall-movie-1202130726/ Stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote and Connie Britton. Coming on 27 October. Evans plays Dr. William Moulton Marston, Hall plays his wife Elizabeth and Heathcote plays their lover Olive Byrne. I had no idea there was that sort of arrangement inspiring the character. The censors have an interesting take on the character too.
  13. Based on non-fiction book, The Operators, following General Stanley McChrystal in Afghanistan. But it's been turned into more of a satirical film, with Pitt playing General Dan McMahon to avoid issues with McChrystal. It'll also star Tilda Swinton, Will Poulter, Sir Ben Kingsley, Scoot McNairy, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Meg Tilly and Alan Ruck. Directed by David Michôd, of Animal Kingdom, which got a very good reception, and The Rover, which also seems to have gone down well. Release on 26 May.
  14. http://deadline.com/2017/05/jackie-chan-sylvester-stallone-ex-baghdad-scott-waugh-chinese-coproduction-1202090429/ Action thriller set in a Chinese oil refinery in Mosul which comes under attack. Chan is a private security contractor who is brought in to extract the workers, but discovers the real plan to steal oil. He teams up with Stallone, a former US Marine, to stop them. $80m budget with lots of Chinese financing. Scott Waugh directing. He did Need for Speed...
  15. Song Dynasty Matt Damon and Andy Lau take on some sort of monster at the Great Wall of China. First English language feature from Zhang Yimou, director of Hero and House of Flying Daggers. Apparently Andy Lau's first Hollywood movie too. I'm not sure if Damon, Willem Dafoe and Pedro Pascal are supposed to be Chinese. Released in China in December and US February.
  16. It seems as if Warner are wanting to make between 6-8 tentpole pictures a year with two of those being DC franchises. Whilst this in itself is quite interesting as it will mean we get 4 key comic book movies a year as Marvel are also set to release at least two Marvel flick per annum the most interesting bit is that it seems Superman is getting an early reboot. http://online.wsj.co...=googlenews_wsj Now this comes only three days after it was announced that WB were unsure which direction to take Superman (ie whether to continue with Singer's vision or start afresh) but the group President seems to be far more open on this being a completely fresh take on the character. It is interesting to see a reboot in the offing for a film that is still only a couple of years old but I guess he is such a big name that they need to do something soon. I'm happy if they do a reboot as I thought Returns was a terrible film and I couldn't really see how they'd fix the issues with a sequel unless they ignored several key plot elements from the first. Although the talk of making it as dark as possible is concerning. A dark tone perfectly suits Batman but I don't think it can necessarily work so well within the Superman universe. I fear that with the success of TDK Warner may just make all DC franchises as dark as possible because they think it currently sells. So where does this leave the new Superman film? Singer could still be attached as director although is he the right man and would he stay on a project when the studio have pretty much said his last interpretation sucked? If Singer was to leave then it is likely to mean WB will go for a more leftfield choice of director like they did with Nolan and the Batman films rather than just a director-for-hire. Timur Bekmambetov could be an interesting choice and he comes off the back of a big box office hit (Wanted) and his portfolio shows that he can do action which was something lacking in Returns. Brad Bird is another possibility and he is moving into live action with 1906 (see here) but he may not be available for a while. JJ Abrams is a director that fits in well with what Warner are probably looking for in a Superman film. He has the popular touch, is very much a visual story teller and is likely to build in an arc that would span several films. So what do people want from a Superman film? I'll admit that I've never been much of a fan of the character but I'd like to see... - Some proper evidence of his powers. The technology is there to make this a big scale picture. - No kid. - No origin story. - No Lex or if he does appear he isn't the proper villain but a background character. - A villain of equal stature that doesn't have to resort to using kryptonite. - No emo crap. - A strong and slightly older Lois. - Less emphasis on nerdy Clark. - For it not to be dark like the Batman films.
  17. Netflix seem to be busy with announcements this week. Sand Castle is a film set in Iraq in 2003. It stars Nicholas Hoult, Henry Cavill and Logan Marshall-Green. Second feature from Brazilian director Fernando Coimbra (A Wolf at the Door), who also did some of Narcos. Script by Chris Roessner, who is a veteran of the war. Coming 21 April.

    http://collider.com/x-force-movie-joe-carnahan-script Apparently X-Force is a thing and Fox are making a movie of it. They're like X-Men's more aggressive offshoot or something. Joe Carnahan is currently writing the script. Cable and Domino are two of the more prominent figures, and both are to appear in Deadpool 2 first. It seems the tone will be more like Deadpool than the traditional X-Men movies.
  19. Someone has been digitally 'enhancing' Home Alone with gore effects.
  20. I know there are at least a few posters on here who have read Patrick Rothfuss's Kingkiller Chronicles "trilogy". It was announced quite a while back that his works would be adapted for TV and into movies, possibly other media (games, stage etc). Now it's been announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda will take up the mantle of creative producer on the movie and tv adaptations, with the option to create a stage adaptation as well some time in the future. I'm quite excited for this although I think I'll have to reread the books, I realized the other day that I've forgotten a lot of what happens.
  21. Prompted by the discussion in the 80's thread, it's brought a couple of childhood memories bubbling to the surface. I'm a child of the 80's, our local video shop was a cornucopia of brilliant looking yet forbidden fruit. Shelves full of films that looked awesome, but scary, I'd spend ages looking at films there was no way my mum would let me rent, terminator, robocop, evil dead, aliens all the 18 rated films looked amazing, all the more so because they were 8 years or so out of reach. Though every now and then you got to bypass the rules and actually see one of these rare and wonderful films. And promptly realise why they are 18 rated. A few stand out - the Aliens memory quoted above is one. I come from a normal sized Scouse Irish family, (normal meaning my mum is one of 6 siblings). Every Saturday the whole clan would convene at my Nana's to eat scouse and hang out, smoking and watching grandstand, when she died the Saturday meet up moved to my eldest auntie's instead, by this time most of my big cousins were old enough to be off doing their own thing, but that left me and my little brother and my cousin who was in between us in age. We'd get dumped in the front room with a bottle of pop, some space raiders and the telly. If we moaned enough my uncle would get sent to get a video for us. Now he did not give a shit what we watched, he didn't have kids so was a bit clueless. One glorious weekend we casually mentioned that there was this new film out about a policeman and could he get that. He went off to the video shop and came back with Robocop. Yes, plan had worked. One boy i went to school with had seen it and told everyone on the bus in reverent, hushed tones how great it was, we were all in awe that the had seen it and now I was going to see it too, I'd be elite. It was truly amazing, it was also absolutely horrific. The arm, oh man, the arm. ED-209 going wrong, but worst of all, that mardy surgeon from ER going into the toxic waste and coming out all manky and then his head coming off. OFF. I don't think my little brother slept for a week. Awesome The other was a sleep over at a friend of my little brother, it was summer and we were "camping" in the garden. It was already late and we were still up and watching tv, i don't quite remember how it came to pass but we ended up watching American Werewolf in London. This was doubly good because as well as having bucketloads of gore it also featured nudey ladies. Result. However the scene with the zombie nazis stuck with me all night and i don't think I actually went to sleep. Horror film and staying in a tent do not mix. Years and years later, one January during busy season i was getting the tube back from a client approaching midnight, think it was bond street, but the station was deserted, it was just me, in a tube station, alone in the corridors, I had a massive flashback to AWiL and basically ran through the station to get out before I was eated. I must have been 28. So - how did you guys scar your fragile little minds?
  22. Thought there was a thread before, but perhaps it was just mentioned in passing somewhere. Disney and Spielberg do Roald Dahl's story. Opens 1 July in the US and 22 July in the UK.
  23. Of course they are. Paramount and Chernin Entertainment acquired the rights and Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) is directing it. O'Connor has been wanting to make it for nearly 20 years and has been tracking the rights and grabbed them, with Chernin, when they became available. The kitsch will go and everything moved to a more contemporary context (military background "which is more CIA Special Activities Division than SEAL Team 6"). Yes, that means existential struggles and self discovery are in too. O'Connor does seem passionate about making it, but will fans want to follow? It looks like it may be in danger of grimdark.
