Warcraft – The Coolest Kids On The Block Duncan Jones thinks there is an arms race in Hollywood for the best visual effects and right now he and the crew of Warcraft are the coolest kids on the block. It’s hard to say for story and acting from the trailers, but the visuals we’ve seen so far in the trailers and featurettes are pretty stunning.

The original grossed $2.56 million during Thursday previews in 2014, and then went on to earn $49 million its opening weekend. Its budget was $18 million — the sequel cost $35 million.

Ridley Scott to Produce New Film From 'The Martian' Author Andy Weir The Martian was easily one of Ridley Scott’s better films in recent years, thanks in part to Andy Weir’s solid source material. It seems as though Scott has grown quite fond of the author, as the pair are reuniting for another film project based on a new, original pitch from Weir. Although Scott is a little too busy to direct it himself, he is teaming up with Simon Kinberg to produce the project for 20th Century Fox. Continue reading…

An adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk‘s Lullaby has been in the works for years, and today it’s finally taking a big step forward. Palahniuk, director Andy Mingo, and producer Josh Leake have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project, which will mark Palahniuk’s first-ever screenwriting credit. Lullaby, published in 2002, concerns a “culling song” that deals a painless death to anyone it’s recited or even thought at.
