Star Trek Discovery releases "in production" featurette

Man, I can't wait for STAR TREK DISCOVERY! And "wait" is what it looks I'm going to be doing, as it doesn't seem like there is a set release date for the series yet (after some unfortunate setbacks, including former showrunner Bryan Fuller stepping down). There haven't even been any set pics or anything, save for some concept designs and some teaser...

Darth Vader scene where he [SPOILERS] was apparently added in reshoots

I'm aware that most people and their grandmothers (and in some cases their grandmothers) all saw ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY already. But for the few of you who haven't, we're going to be going into SPOILER TERRITORY , so if you don't want the ending spoiled for you, don't continue after this point. Or do, this is a free country (for now, at least):...

Woody Harrelson eyed for mentor role in Young Han Solo movie

The YOUNG HAN SOLO MOVIE is one that is perplexing to me. I just don't see the appeal. If it's about Han Solo turning into the scoundrel we know-and-love, then for most of the movie he's -  by definition -  not going to be the Han Solo we know-and-love. And if he's a dirty rotten scoundrel at the beginning, and it's about him learning a lesson and...

Concept art shows Rogue One's cast could've looked much different

I know I've mentioned my apathy and general "meh-ness" towards ROGUE ONE before. But that doesn't mean I didn't think it had good ideas or cool stuff in it, just that (in my opinion) a lot of it seemed either half-baked or inconsequential. Now, it's no surprise that movies usually look much different when they're first pitched then they do when they...

Han Solo film to be like a Western, says producer Kathleen Kennedy

So STAR WARS films will be coming out, at least once a year, until the end of time. One of these films, which sounds like the kind of STAR WARS film you'd make after you've exhausted all the good ideas, is a young Han Solo film. Talking to Variety , super-producer Kathleen Kennedy had this to say about the upcoming Phil Lord / Christopher Miller joint: [The film...

HBO and George R.R. Martin in talks for a Game of Thrones prequel series

I've thought about it, and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't last long in George R.R. Martin's GAME OF THRONES universe. I'm not brave or strong enough to make it as a warrior, nor am I clever or cunning enough to make as a schemer, and I'm certainly too fat and lazy to make it as a common peasant. But, honestly, that ability to be able to transport yourself into a...

Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover talk about getting cast as Han and Lando

Being cast as younger versions of nerd icons must be nerve-wracking. I know I couldn't do it (then again, I look like Comic-Book Guy from THE SIMPSONS, so they wouldn't cast me anyway). But that's the task being laid in front of Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover , playing a young Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, respectively.  In an interview in the aptly-titled...

New Willy Wonka film in the works, not an origin story or sequel

So apparently there's going to be another Willy Wonka movie in the works from Warner Bros. studios. It speaks volumes of how jaded I am to Hollywood's strip-mining of IPs that I'm just glad it reportedly won't be a remake of the CHOCOLATE FACTORY story, nor will it be another f*cking origin story (great, we can find out the backstory to why he wears top hats! Yay!...

Overlook Hotel producer says The Shining prequel is completely its own film

Last year Warner Bros. hired NEVER LET ME GO and ONE HOUR PHOTO director Mark Romanek to helm its THE SHINING prequel THE OVERLOOK HOTEL, which has given me hope for the project, but I'm still not completely sold on the film. During a conversation with Collider , producer James Vanderbilt (who also wrote and directed the upcoming political drama TRUTH ) said Romanek's...
