Elrond himself Hugo Weaving joins the Peter Jackson-produced Mortal Engines

Man, I'm super excited for the upcoming fantasy epic MORTAL ENGINES. I love me some Peter Jackson (even if I didn't completely enjoy THE HOBBIT films as a whole, I still found things to love within them), so I can't wait to see what he's cooking up with his newest film. And while Jackson is only producing, and not directing, I still think that's cause for...

Peter Jackson produced Mortal Engines casts its leads

I love Peter Jackson - from DEAD ALIVE to LORD OF THE RINGS - the man is talented as f*ck. Even his misses (like LOVELY BONES and THE HOBBIT) have awesome stuff in them. That is all to say that I'm excited-as-balls about his upcoming film, MORTAL ENGINES, described by  Variety  as " set thousands of years in the future, Earth’s cities...

Hugh Jackman joins YA adaptation Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

With the unfortunate business of the Dakota Pipeline in the news (which will probably get its own harrowing movie soon), it seems it's more relevant than ever to see the discrepancy in the quality of life between Native people and the rest of the country at large. And as someone with family in reservations, that issue hits closer to home for me than most. Fortunately it seems the...

Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda to produce epic fantasy Kingkiller Chronicle

While I know it's internet suicide to dislike HAMILTON, I'll still give creator Lin-Manuel Miranda this: the music may not be my cup of tea, but I can't deny it's catchy as hell (also he seems like a super chill dude). So with his involvement in the delightful MOANA, the upcoming LITTLE MERMAID remake, and the MARY POPPINS sequel, it seems the sky is the...

Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time casts Storm Reid in lead role

The more I hear about  Ava DuVernay ’s A WRINKLE IN TIME, the more I like it. I've loved the casting of Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit , and Mrs. Which ( Mindy Kaling , Reese Witherspoon , and Oprah Winfrey , respectively), and the casting continues to kill it. The main character of the novel, Meg Murry, is now going to be played my multi-racial actress Storm...

Shailene Woodley refuses to join Divergent: Ascendant TV movie

The DIVERGENT series is a run-of-the-mill young adult dystopian future thing that's so innocuous, it almost plays like parody. It has its fans, and if you're one of them, that's cool. The one thing that can't be disputed though, is that while it fared better than most would-be franchises (*cough* MORTAL INSTRUMENTS *cough*), it still wasn't as...

Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time eyes Mindy Kaling & Reese Witherspoon

I loved A WRINKLE IN TIME as a kid. I haven't read it since junior high school, but I still remember being swept up in its magical world of different dimensions and flying creatures with rainbow wings. It opened up my imagination, and I still vividly remember many scenes as if I'd read them yesterday. Which is why I'm excited for the new big-budget Disney...

While talks are still in the early stages, Cody's latest untitled script looks to be settling into the hands of Reitman to direct with Theron starring. Plot details remain under wraps, but the one...

Chloe Moretz drowns us in more bad voiceover for new 5th Wave trailer

It can't be that hard to cut a trailer for young adult sci-fi that doesn't look as generic and by-the-book as what we've seen from THE 5TH WAVE thus far. THE HUNGER GAMES has done it. THE MAZE RUNNER has done it. DIVERGENT, to an extent, has done it. But Sony adaptation of Rick Yancey's book is failing pretty miserably at it. It takes a certain kind of talent to...

Chloe Moretz joins the YA craze in The 5th Wave trailer

You're going to earn your money in trying to make it through the new international trailer for THE 5TH WAVE, Sony's latest attempt to capitalize on the YA craze that's produced such hits as THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT and such misses as BEAUTIFUL CREATURES and THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS. Oh, it's not because the film looks bad. It looks... okay, average, about what you'd expect from a...
