[Fantastic Fest Review] Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child

26 September 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Seemingly from outer space (Australia, really) comes Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child. This lost ’80s era space opera is a fresh of breath air that comes at a time when ones doesn’t see this kind of film too often. Furthermore, it’s not of the post-apocalyptic variety, which also adds a refreshing angle. What starts as a slow build, Shane Abbess‘ ambitious sci-fi gem quickly picks up speed and never looks back.

Abbess’ feature has many strengths, and right out of the gates the visuals simply sing with a slick and refined production design. Abbess and co-writer Brian Cachia succeed at impressive world building, and, like the music (also from Cachia), it’s big. This story about a government conglomerate, EXOr, colonizing planets is kicked off when one of their secret facilities is in danger of wiping out an entire planet in 24 hours (which include colonists, and »

8 things we learned about the live-action 'Masters of the Universe' reboot

15 August 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

McG, the director of Charlie's Angels and Terminator: Salvation who is currently slated to helm the long-gestating Masters of the Universe live-action movie at Sony, just gave an interview to IGN that features quite a bit of back and forth on the upcoming "reboot" of the iconic '80s animated franchise. MotU earlier spawned a poorly-received live-action film starring Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella. Stating that he is "laser-focused" on making MotU his next movie, McG revealed quite a bit about the project's development, from casting to setting to how the film will be informed by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Below are a few highlights from the conversation, which you can read in full over at IGN. 1. Kellan Lutz has not been cast as He-Man. Though Lutz previously revealed via Twitter that he had met with McG on the project, the Legend of Hercules star is so far not attached to play the musclebound protagonist. »

Newswire: McG argues Masters Of The Universe will be good by naming other good things

15 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Director and hater of vowels McG was handed the keys to Castle Greyskull earlier this year, having been entrusted with filming a new version of Masters Of The Universe for the big screen. And while we recently learned Kellan Lutz was in talks about possibly wearing the loincloth (likely because someone saw him in that other Hercules movie and thought, “Well, I can end my search for someone to play a one-dimensional cartoon character”), as we near the end of summer, an update would be appreciated. After all, it’s only natural fans of the series might wake in the morning, step outside, take a deep breath, get real high, and say, ”Hey—what’s goin’ on, McG?”

Happily, McG has heard your cries, and is more than happy to tell you what’s up with his effort to turn a cartoon invented to sell toys (and hasn’t had »

McG says Masters of the Universe will be his next movie and compares it to Guardians of the Galaxy

15 August 2016 1:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After spending an eternity in Development Hell (or should that be, Eternia in Development Hell?), director McG has announced the his Masters of the Universe reboot is finally making some movement.

“It’s a very exciting moment for Masters Of The Universe,” he told IGN. “We have a big meeting with Sony regarding prep of the movie on Wednesday. And we’re in the middle of a bit of a script polish, and it’s my absolute passion. I’m laser-focused on that being my next film. But I mean, you know how it works in contemporary filmmaking. You really, really have to earn the good will of the parent studio, and Tom Rothman runs a tight ship at Sony, and we’re going to get there. I’m so happy to report that to the fans.”

“I think we want to honor the fan base, first and foremost,” he adds. »

McG Talks He-Man and Rebooting Masters of the Universe

13 August 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It sounds like we're getting a lot closer to seeing He-Man return on the big screen in the long-awaited Masters of the Universe reboot. We still have a few years to wait, according to director McG. The man behind such notable hits as Charlie's Angels and Terminator Salvation claims he's ready to make this live-action fantasy adaption of the popular toy and animated series his next movie. But there is still some work to be done.

Masters of the Universe has been sitting in development purgatory for quite some time. There seemed to be some light at the end of the tunnel when it was announced earlier this year that director McG had taken on the task of resuscitating this dormant franchise, which has only ever seen one live-action movie to date, which arrived way back in 1987 and starred Dolph Lundgren and Courtney Cox.

He-man And The Masters Of The Universe: Director McG Gives Updates On Long-Gestating Project

12 August 2016 3:50 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There is no shortage of remakes, reboots, and re-imaginings in Hollywood. I'd hold it against them, but the simple fact is that it's a heck of a lot easier to advertise an existing property than it is to build a fanbase for one from the ground up. One of the many long-gestating projects out there in Tinseltown is He-man And The Masters Of The Universe, a film that not a lot of people have been asking for, but the studios seem to insist people want.

Editorializations aside, we finally have some news on the film, which seems to have been largely dormant ever since McG first signed on as director earlier this month (with the exception of a random tweet from actor Kellan Lutz expressing his interest in the film). Following the TV Critics Association, IGN caught up with the director and received a good number of updates regarding the picture. »

'Masters of the Universe' casting update: Umm, okay

27 June 2016 6:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I recently re-watched the original Masters of the Universe on a big-screen, and let me just say, there’s a reason that movie wasn’t a hit. The narrative is clunky, Dolph Lundgren’s acting as He-Man is abysmal and the production’s budgetary limitations are painfully apparent in every frame. While there are things to love about it -- not least Frank Langella’s scenery-chewing performance as Skeletor -- it sadly hasn’t gotten any better with time. You may have heard that a new adaptation of the 1980s animated series is in the works and has been for nearly a decade, but the project was injected with new life back in January when it was revealed that Charlie’s Angels and Terminator: Salvation helmer McG had signed on to direct. Look, I get it! McG is no Christopher Nolan. But he’s made some fun films in the »

‘Tunnel,’ ‘Boy Missing,’ ‘Chosen’ Screen at Madrid de Cine

27 June 2016 12:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Three much-anticipated Spanish titles — “At The End of the Tunnel,” “Boy Missing” and “The Chosen” — will play at the 10th Spanish Screenings-Madrid de Cine, Spanish cinema’s annual international market. “Boy Missing” and “At the End of the Tunnel” are Hollywood studio releases in Spain.

Unspooling June 27-29, the Spanish Screenings are Spain’s equivalent of UniFrance’s mid-January Rendez-Vous with French Cinema and the U.K.’s London Screenings. They also serve to debate the state of the industry and underscore its key trends.

One seems obvious at this year’s meet: an appetite for thrillers. From the turn of the century, Spain carved out a reputation for horror movies, such as [“Rec”] or “The Orphanage,” which broke out to substantial box office in Spain and abroad. This year, it is thrillers, not chillers or gore, which predominate on the slates of Spain’s top international sales houses.

The move into thrillers is due, »

It Sounds Like Kellan Lutz Is Up For A Role In McG's Masters Of The Universe Movie

25 June 2016 8:55 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A new Masters of the Universe movie has been in the works for years now, but it's finally beginning to gain some traction with McG likely to take the helm for Sony Pictures. In fact, it appears as if the filmmaker has already started meeting with actors, as Twilight star Kellan Lutz has revealed today that he may be in early discussions for it. However, he doesn't specify who exactly he's being eyed for.  Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans, Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking Motu! Its In Great Hands! »

Kellan Lutz Wanted as He-Man in Masters of the Universe?

25 June 2016 2:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we've long heard that Producer McG and his Wonderland Productions are working with Mattel to reboot Masters of the Universe, they haven't really seemed in too much of a hurry to make that happen. Aside from a few little teases over the course of 2015, the movie remained fairly radio silent. That changes today with the news that Kellan Lutz has taken a meeting, presumable to play the lead character of He-Man. Nothing has been confirmed, but we do get some nice fan art out of it. Here's what he had to say in a Tweet.

"Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans, Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking Motu! It's in great hands."

Masters of the Universe hasn't been seen on the big screen since 1987, and Kellan Lutz certainly sounds like a worthy replacement for Dolph Lundgren. The pair even shared the screen in the 2014 sequel The Expendables 3. »

Kellan Lutz In Talks For Masters Of The Universe

25 June 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems to be a day of good news for long-gestating adaptations in Hollywood. Earlier this morning we reported that Justin Lin was being eyed by Warner Bros. to take the helm of Akira, and now it appears as if Sony is looking to get one of their projects out of development hell as well, with news that Kellan Lutz is in talks with the studio to take the lead role in Masters of the Universe.

The news comes via the actor’s Twitter account, where he revealed that he’s had a meeting with director McG and Mary Viola, the president of McG’s production company.

Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans,

It’s been stuck in development hell for a few years now, but back in January it was announced that Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation helmer McG had signed on to direct Sony’s Masters of the Universe movie, and now it looks like we may be close to some casting.

Kellan Lutz Up For "He-Man" Reboot?

25 June 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though talk of the "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" cinematic reboot has been going around for some time, there hasn't been much movement on the project in recent years beyond the attachment of McG ("Charlie's Angels," "Terminator Salvation") as director.

Now it seems one actor has used social media to indicate he's at least met over the film and could be in the running - "Twilight" series actor Kellan Lutz. Lutz just tweeted:

"Hey @HeManTheMovie and all Motu fans, Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking Motu. Its In Great Hands!"

For those wondering Mary Viola is the president of McG's production company Wonderland Sound & Vision. A meeting is a long way from even negotiations though, and how many actors McG has met for the film is unclear.

So far there's been few rumors regarding who'll play the protector of Castle Grayskull or when the »
