It is directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi and no connection whatsoever to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film or the giant monster universe Warner Bros. is currently building. But that doesn’t really answer the question, because Shin Godzilla isn’t what many viewers think it will be. So, what is Shin Godzilla?

Production Begins On A.A. Milne Biopic Sometimes, the story of how a classic tale was conceived can be highly interesting, and Hollywood has no shortage of examples that highlight this point. Well-received films such as Finding Neverland and Saving Mr. Banks have explored the origins of Peter Pan and Mary Poppins, providing a fresh spin on something audiences are already familiar with.

The 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back' IMAX Trailer Is Crazy And I Love It In the first Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer, Tom Cruise beat up 11 guys. In this new IMAX trailer, which is only 90 seconds long, he beats up eight. That includes a guy on an airplane, a guy he kicks in the face, a guy he jumps on from a great height, a guy he punches through the window of his car, and a guy he strangles with his own telephone cord while talking to him on the phone. He also threatens this man with the line “Maybe I rip your arm off and beat you to death with it.” Oh please oh please oh please Tom Cruise, rip his arm off and beat him to death with it.

Alfred Hitchcock Anthology TV Series In The Works If you’re like me, your enjoyment of Alfred Hithcock extends well beyond his classic films. Some of my favorite memories are watching the TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, which, not unlike Twilight Zone, was an anthology series. The difference between the two lay in the genre itself. While Twilight Zone was largely science fiction-based, Alfred Hitchcock Presents was standard mystery — oftentimes with elements of other genres interspersed. In true M. Night Shyamalan fashion, however, each episode would end with an ironic little twist.

Wolf of Wall Street writer to tackle script for Antoine Fuqua's Scarface Terence Winter is no stranger to tackling the criminal element after his work on The Sopranos, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and Boardwalk Empire (which he created), so it should come as no surprise that the writer is now set to board Antoine Fuqua's remake of SCARFACE which will follow a Mexican immigrant fighting for his version of the American Dream in Los Angeles. Per Variety, Winter... Read More...

Lady Gaga had sex with Cuba Gooding Jr. on 'American Horror Story: Roanoke,' and the internet was not prepared.

While its popularity has ebbed and flowed over the 100-plus years that movies have been a thing, one genre that never seems to go out of style for too long is the historical drama. This makes perfect sense really, as instead of just dryly reading or being told about the straight facts surrounding a important event or period in history, audiences can be entertained by a dramatic re-telling of what happened.

From Jaws to The Exorcist to Jurassic Park, many of the greatest films in history have been based on books.

From 1928’s The Passing of Mr. Quinn onward, nearly 40 feature films have been adapted from Christie’s works.

Duncan Jones‘ Mute was one of those projects I have been writing and thinking about for years, which I cynically never expected to come to fruition. Kind of like Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds or Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. I’m so excited that Mute is finally filming and we’ll be able to see the science fiction noir soon. But where will we be able to see it, and who is fronting the movie? Netflix.

Unfortunately, Blair Witch was not quite the hit sequel that Lionsgate was hoping it would be. The film has only pulled in $16.5 million domestically and another $11.5 million internationally. That’s a bummer, because it’s actually quite the scary sequel that expands the mythology of The Blair Witch Project without ruining anything or revealing too much. Now those of you have seen it may be thinking to yourself that the movie does reveal too much about the legend at the core of the horror franchise, mostly because it appears to reveal the titular spirit/monster/whatever.

Tony Jaa's dance card is steadily filling up. Having been recently attached to the Chinese version of The Expendables called Makeshift Squad yesterday we found out he is joining another project.  News from our friends over at Film Combat Syndicate is that Jaa will star in a new thriller called Fate. It gets better. The film will be directed by Wilson Yip (SPL, Flash Point, Ip Man), a director whom I feel guided China/HK through the dark times of post golden era HK cinema.

Marvel Studios origin films typically begin with a hero rising to take down a villain possessing the same abilities they do.  Iron Man took on Iron Monger, Captain America battled Red Skull, Ant-Man tangled with Yellowjacket and the list goes on.  But that wasn't a symptom of happenstance, it was strategy, as explained by studio President Kevin Feige.  "Clearly we will get to that [non-doppelganger match ups]… You want to have characters that inhabit the same world when introducing a new world, a new mythology for lack of a better term.

I think the Golden Age of Television is a term that will soon not be applied to the current state of TV. What seemed like a bastion for original, unique content is quickly going down a route many say movies have gone down, one plagued by reboots, remakes, and “reimaginings”. Don’t believe me? Well then take this one example: THE EXORCIST, LETHAL WEAPON, S.W.A.T., and BEHIND... Read More...
