Jim Mickle On Cold In July And Remaining Faithful To Joe R. Lansdale

This week I sat down for a chat with Jim Mickle, the director of Mulberry Street, Stake Land, We Are What We Are and now, an adaptation of Joe R. Lansdale‘s Cold in July. Here’s the trailer, to set you up. [youtube][/youtube] Looks good, huh? Well, Lansdale himself woud agree. Here’s what Mickle had to […]

Full Trailer For Into The Storm

Certain high concept movie premises feel stripped down enough that they’re almost definitive. With Into the Storm the appeal seems to be that the storm is the subject, not the context. This is a film that “does” a storm for us, and does it with all the modern cinematic tricks that can be mustered. If […]

Watch Guillermo Del Toro Officially Announce Pacific Rim 2 For 2017 Plus A Spin-Off Cartoon Series

April 7th, 2017. [youtube][/youtube] Regular readers know that I loved Pacific Rim. Regular readers are probably imagining that I’m doing a funny little dance right now. Regular readers are completely correct. Thanks to Buzzfeed for the video, and this statement from Guillermo Del Toro: The characters I love will return. Raleigh, Mako, Newt, Gottlieb and […]

Some Fresh Footage In New Guardians Of The Galaxy Video Report

Had I been the producer, editor and director of this video things would have gone down rather differently. Nonetheless, there’s fresh footage from Guardians of the Galaxy here, and that was way more than enough to get my clicking finger busy. Rocket really does seem more appealing every time I see another shot. I found […]

Shane Black Says His Predator Film Is A Sequel Not A Remake Or Reboot

Just some clarification on the new Predator movie, courtesy of the man set to direct and co-write it. Shane Black answered a few questions from Collider, giving his reasons for not hitting the big red reset button. Why start over, when you’ve all this rich mythology yet to mine? Or, one might argue, why not […]

Full Trailer For The Live Action Lupin III Movie

This looks like a riot. [youtube][/youtube] Translating this kind of elastic, super-stylish manga or anime into live action takes a certain sensibility, but I think Ryuhei Kitamura has the right taste. I hope he also brings the craftsmanship too. There are no obvious English-language release plans as yet but we’ll at least be able to […]

CW Really Won’t Let You Miss The (Official Screening Of) Flash This Fall

When The Flash premieres on the CW this October it’s going to take a Tuesday slot. Some might be surprised to see that the network isn’t pairing the show with Wednesday night’s Arrow and trying to get a boost that way. Well, CW do see the value here because, for the first two weeks at […]

New Image Of Tom Hardy And Charlize Theron As Their Mad Max Characters

From the cover of this week’s EW, and complete with a slightly disturbing joke about Charlize Theron‘s character only having one arm, here’s the hero and villainess of Mad Max: Fury Road. Hardy is playing “Mad” Max Rockatansky, Theron is playing Imperator Furiosa. Brilliant. George Miller explained to EW that he’s centred his film on action, and […]

Lego Recreate The Star Wars Read-Through With Some Nice Jokes And References

One of the most seen photographs of 2014 is undoubtedly the official shot of the Star Wars: Episode VII cast and crew read through. In nerd terms, it won’t get bigger than that. But it did just get a lot smaller. Lego have recreated the image with minifigs. There’s a lot of sweetness here. Look […]

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the […]

Shane Black Co-Writing And Directing Predator Reboot

If at first you don’t succeed, reboot. 20th Century Fox were very keen to get Shane Black to rewrite their Predator script back in the 80s. He resisted, so the studio tried a trick. They cast him in the film, and then on set, asked him again if he’d take a look at the draft. […]
