In one of the more unlikely moves for the upcoming AMC Preacher TV series, Watchmen alum Jackie Earle Haley has been cast as Odin Quincannon in what The Hollywood Reporter calls a “six-episode arc.” Quincannon is the principle antagonist on the “Salvation” storyline late in the comic series run.

These big-budget franchise movies are exhausting, especially when you consider the turnaround time the studios are looking for from one film to the next in order to maximize the value of a series at its peak and rake in the dollars. That's why you'll often see different filmmakers being brought in to helm subsequent sequels and chapters. It's a process that is rife with burnout, given the time and energy... Read More...

Not too long ago, we heard about First Wives Club stars Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn reuniting for a comedy at Netflix called Divanation about three former members of a popular singing group who are forced to reunite after being apart for 30 years. And it sounds like Hawn is lining up another role that will take her back to the big screen as well.

It’s so exciting to see things releasing regarding Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory. Four posters have been released that feature the tagline “Have you seen her?” and show the character Dory hiding in different underwater environments. I know there’s always hesitation when it comes to sequels, because that often fall flat of the original movie. However, Pixar has done a good job in the past with multiple Toy Story sequels. Sure, one can claim that the success of Toy Story came from the colorful cast, but Finding Nemo is filled with amusing characters.

Clearing yet more room for Episode VIII of the Star Wars saga is Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s Ready Player One. Variety reports the film, originally schedule to debut alongside the currently untitled Star Wars sequel, will now debut on March 30th, 2018. Star Wars‘s December 15th, 2017 date was itself a shift away from a planned May release. Citing the need for extra time to complete the picture — and in the hope of repeating Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ holiday box office — Disney moved its original release date by half a year.

One of the downsides to most of the X-Men movies so far has been the has been the focus on Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Sure, Jackman’s take on the adamantium-clawed mutant superhero is one of those vital foundational blocks upon which the entire comic book movie genre has been built, but it’s been a little suffocating. With the exception of X-Men: First Class, most of the films in the series have been Wolverine movies that also happen to feature some other X-Men. His solo films have been a little redundant.

The process of adapting popular video game titles to big screen movies has a lengthy, yet problematic history. Titles such as Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and Doom are practically royalty when it comes to their legacies as video games, but as movies they didn’t quite deliver in the same way. Even early efforts at making the leap from consoles to cinemas weren’t especially promising. Actor Bob Hoskins once famously described his time spent as Mario in Nintendo’s 1993 Super Mario Bros.

Two decades after GoldenEye, star Pierce Brosnan and director Martin Campbell are looking to team up again, albeit for a very different kind of movie. They’re joining forces for Across the River and Into the Trees, based on Ernest Hemingway‘s 1950 novel about an older man who travels to an exotic location and strikes up a romance with a much younger woman. So on second thought, maybe Across the River and Into the Trees has something in common with James Bond after all. THR reported on the Pierce Brosnan Martin Campbell project.

Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger, the minds behind the 2009 horror flick SORORITY ROW, have been tapped by James Wan and Lionsgate to write SAW: LEGACY. This will be the eighth entry in the venerable SAW franchise, which had seemingly concluded with SAW 3D in 2010. "The Final Chapter"? Nope! While the original seven films came out annually beginning in 2004 and "culminating" in 2010, this new SAW will be coming out after a seven year absence from theaters.

Even though Will Smith isn’t returning for Independence Day: Resurgence, his on-screen wife Vivica A. Fox is back for the sequel, and her character Jasmine is doing everything she can to make sure their son Dylan (played by Jessie Usher) is just as strong of a man as his father. In addition, Brent Spiner is one of the more surprising returning characters from the original movie, mostly because everyone had assumed the Area 51 scientist Dr. Okun was dead.

Starz Digital Media Movies that hope to explore the idea and effects of grief aren’t uncommon, but many of them, even the great ones, often exist by design as emotionally devastating experiences. Less common are the films that manage to examine these sad and sorrowful life experiences while still recognizing the rest that life has to offer. Kenneth Lonergan’s masterful Manchester By the Sea is one of the finest such rarities, and hopefully those of you who missed its debut at Sundance will share in its brilliance and heart later this year.
