10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

New Synopsis For "Creed" Spin-Off

26 February 2015 5:40 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. has unveiled the first official synopsis for the "Rocky" film series spinoff "Creed". Interestingly the plotline teases that Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Balboa might be facing a different kind of fight. Here's the synopsis:

"Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa (Stallone).

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo-the fierce rival who became his closest friend.

Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even »

Production is underway on Ryan Coogler’s Creed, a spin-off from the Rocky series that focuses on Adonis Creed, grandson of Apollo.

Plot Synopsis For Creed Hints At A New Adversary For Rocky

25 February 2015 3:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler is rebooting the Rocky franchise with this year’s Creed. Starring his Fruitvale lead Michael Jordan, Coogler’s film will pay homage to the original series while striking out on its own. This time around, Sylvester Stallone’s boxer appears in a supporting role with Jordan nabbing the spotlight as Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis.

In terms of story, we know that Adonis will seek out his father’s greatest opponent, Rocky, to help train him in the sport that runs through his veins. Aside from a few casting announcements, that’s been it so far. Now, thanks to a lengthy synopsis unearthed by Badass Digest (via /Film), it seems that Balboa himself could be in for another battle of his own:

The Rocky franchise is alive and well, with the next entry, Creed, coming our way in November, and now we have a good idea of what the story of Adonis Creed (Michael B.

‘Creed’ Synopsis Says Rocky Balboa Has His Own Battle in the New Film

25 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Creed sounds like a great way to structure a new chapter in the very long-running Rocky saga. For this film, Sylvester Stallone returns as Rocky, but he’s not the central figure. Rather, Rocky is working as trainer to Adonis Creed (Michael B Jordan, above), the son of his old rival Apollo Creed. In other words, […]

This Was the Best Oscars Show in Years (But It Was Still Terrible)

23 February 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How odd that 12 hours after it’s over, I’m thinking of Michael Keaton, looking as if he has been stripped down to the raw nerve, trying to make sense of this odyssey that brought him back and brought him to the peak — where he couldn’t bear to admit he wanted to be until his director pushed him towards the microphone. Always an unnerving moment. Almost four decades ago, Sylvester Stallone, the center of Rocky, had lost his Best Actor prize to a dead man and his screenwriting prize to an even bigger grandstander, Paddy Chayefsky, but was pulled onstage as his movie — his golden ticket — won Best Picture, and Stallone leaned into the microphone and said, “Wait until next year.” Keaton, a much more conflicted talent, could never be so open. Someone who worked for him (and liked him) once told me that when he was at the »

Rumours are circulating from The Tracking Board that the cast for Expendabelles, the all-female spin-off from Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables franchise, may be taking shape.

Word from the site is that Naomi Watts (21 Grams) is attached to star in the film, with Brit Kate Beckinsale (Underworld) also rumoured to be taking on the lead role of the female-spy group.

In addition, Marcia Gay Harden (Fifty Shades of Grey), Li Bingbing (Transformers: Age of Extinction) and Mila Kunis (Jupiter Ascending) have all also been made offers to appear in the film, but as of now no official confirmation on any of the leading ladies has been announced.

The spin-off will follow reportedly “follow group of female spies who are tasked with rescuing a weapons engineer, taken hostage by a decadent, womanizing Indonesian Sultan.”

If Watts sign on, she will reportedly play Nancy, a guns and munitions specialist who lives a cookie-cutter soccer-mom life in La, »

'Aquaman': 6 Things We Know About Jason Momoa's Costume

20 February 2015 10:21 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last night, fans got their first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman, courtesy of a new photo sent out by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder. It has long been rumored that Aquaman and other characters such as The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will show up at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to form the Justice League with Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Not only will this lead to the two-part Justice League movie, but also standalone adventures for Aquaman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Green Lantern (who hasn't been cast yet). While we wait to see Aquaman and the rest of these characters in action, this photo not only confirms a few previous rumors about the character, but poses even more questions.

18 February 2015 3:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few weeks after Warner Bros. gave a November 25 release date for their Rocky spinoff Creed, new photos have emerged from the Philadelphia set, featuring Sylvester Stallone reprising his role as Rocky Balboa, and Michael B. Jordan as the grandson of Apollo Creed. The story follows Creed as he tries to start a boxing career, with Balboa reluctantly coming aboard to serve as his new trainer. Tessa Thompson also stars as the female lead, although no specific details were given about her character.

The plot is also said to delve into the Rocky franchise mythology, although we don't know much more about the story.
