New War for the Planet of the Apes trailer focuses on Nova

To say I'm excited for the new WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES is an understatement. The first two films were amazing (however, it's funny to think back how everyone was sure RISES was going to be a shitty flop before release), and the third film in the franchise seems to be upping the ante in action, scale, and pathos. This includes the introduction to the character Nova. If you...

Christopher Nolan rumored to be working on live-action Akira trilogy for WB

It seemed like a live-action film version of AKIRA was once again dead in the water earlier this year before Warner Bros. hired Daredevil Season 2 showrunner Marco J. Ramirez to write a new script, and now a source tells Den of Geek that the studio is planning on doing a trilogy based on the dystopian story, possibly with Christopher Nolan . It's unknown to what capacity...

Lionsgate developing Emperor, the first of a potential Julius Caesar trilogy

Films dealing with ancient Rome/Greece typically aren't franchise fodder, but they sure seem to be heading that way. Lionsgate already has a potential franchise based around "The Odyssey," and now they're turning their sights on Julius Caesar.

C'mon Hollywood: Get back to the gore, Peter Jackson!

Sticking closely to shoe-string budgeted films and appropriately titled "splatstick" horror comedies, Peter Jackson wasn't exactly the biggest name being passed around the film community back in the day. It wasn't until he received recognition for his work on HEAVENLY CREATURES that he was able to break away from the cult director status he associated himself with and before long,...

It seems like action movies from the U.S. these days just arenít all that great, you know? Aside from comic book adaptations, giant robots and Jason Statham vehicles, itís pretty slim pickings for an action junkie looking to get his rocks off cinematically speaking. The last great action movie I can think of at the top of my head is easily THE RAID: REDEMPTION and you can imagine...

C'mon Hollywood: Quality over quantity is key for the future of Star Wars!

We’re all excited for more STAR WARS. The very prospect of seeing anything from a galaxy far, far away grace the screen post RETURN OF THE JEDI is a near-unimaginable prospect that put most of us in a fanboy “high.” George Lucas set aside his spite for the angry fans and, in a monumental business decision, handed over the keys to his universe to the Mouse House. The...

C'mon Hollywood: Enough with trilogies!

With the recent announcement of Peter Jackson extending his recently wrapped two-part THE HOBBIT into a trilogy, I was left scratching my head as to why it was necessary.   They tackled the production from the start with two films in mind and executed it as such.   Jackson knew he’d want to pack as many details in it as he could, so he gave himself an extra film...
