Official Fast and Furious theme park ride coming to Universal Orlando

26 August 2015 5:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A ride based on Vin Diesel's blockbuster driving-fighting-stealing franchise is coming to Universal Orlando, Florida.

Based on the attraction of the same name in sister theme park Universal Studios Hollywood, Fast & Furious: Supercharged will arrive on the east coast in 2017.

Also featuring the likes of Vin Diesel (Dom Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) and Tyrese Gibson (Roman), it promises to make you feel part of the "Fast family".

It also boasts an original storyline, and for what it lacks in Fast and Furious 7's big bad Jason Statham, it more than makes up for in big bad's brother Luke Evans.

The sad news is that to make space for Vin Diesel and company, resort stalwarts Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue and Disaster: A Major Motion Picture Starring You! will close later this year.

"Three Seconds" Shuts Down Filming

26 August 2015 1:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The upcoming Luke Evans and Josh Brolin-led action thriller "Three Seconds" appears to have shut down production indefinitely right as it was about to begin filming.

Heery Casting, the extras casting director for the film says that the project shut down production and will not be continuing. The production was ready to go in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with the actors like Evans, Brolin, David Oyelowo, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Olivia Munn in town and ready to go.

However, with the state budget not yet passed the state could not guarantee them tax credits they needed as part of Pa's tax credit program. They waited on it, but in the process lost one of the main actors and so have shut down.

There was a rumor that the project could move to the Pittsburgh area, but Greater Philadelphia Film Office Executive Director Sharon Pinkenson tells Philly Mag that the project has been »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Extended Edition Coming in November

25 August 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Fans of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit films have been anxiously awaiting the release of the inevitable extended version of The Battle of Five Armies, and today Warner Bros. have officially revealed when fans can pick it up, along with which new special features are included.  Come inside to take a look!

I think I've made it clear over the last few years, that I haven't exactly been a fan of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy (for a variety of reasons).  However, I have felt that the extended edition versions of the movies have been more enjoyable for me as I watched them.  Perhaps that will be the case with Battle of the Five Armies, which hits blu-ray on November 17th, with 20 extra minutes of footage.  

And yes, as rumored/revealed a little while ago, this new version is in fact rated R.  Take from that what you will, »

Emma Watson has two reasons to celebrate today. The actress just completed filming Disney's upcoming live-adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" -- and the date has some major significance to the 25 year old. "The 21st of August must be an auspicious day for me 15 yrs ago I began my journey as Hermione15 yrs later I wrap on my 1st musical as Belle," Watson tweeted out on Friday. That's right -- on August 21, 2000, Warner Bros. announced the cast of the first "Harry Potter" film, introducing the world to Watson for the first time as Hermione Granger. "Director Chris Columbus and producer David Heyman have discovered their Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the thousands of children who cast their names into the hat to play the roles," a press release from that day reads.

93 movie remakes and reboots currently in the works

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...


One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

The Crow Creator Insists The Reboot Will Happen

18 August 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the collapse of distributor Relativity Media came the news that one of its slated projects, the long-awaited reboot of The Crow, had suffered a similar fate. When two weeks ago the company announced its bankruptcy, the film’s status was described as “suspended.” Despite Relativity’s upbeat resolve to push on, it seemed as though the flick had finally gone the way of its lead character: to the grave.

That no longer seems to be the case as the movie is still very much in development, according to comic creator James O’Barr. During a panel this last weekend at the Twin Tiers Comic Con in New York, O’Barr allayed fears that Relativity’s financial crisis would prevent The Crow from moving forward:

“It’s still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. »

First 'Beauty and the Beast' Footage Stuns at D23 (But Fans Will Have to Wait to See It)

18 August 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first footage from Disney's upcoming live-action reboot of "Beauty and the Beast" debuted at the D23 expo this weekend, and it apparently stunned attendees. Unfortunately for average fans, if you didn't snag a ticket to the event, you won't be able to see it for yourself.

Despite Disney declining to put the footage up online (so far, anyway), some savvy internet commenters have helped fill in the blanks for those who couldn't witness "Beauty" (and the first look at its titular star, Emma Watson) in person. And it seems like the flick will almost certainly live up to the hype.

According to a member of the Broadway World message board, who was there for the presentation, "everything I've seen from Batb looks stunning, including Emma in the dress." ("The dress" being the famous gold frock that Belle wears during her romantic dance with the Beast in the latter half of the film. »

The Crow Reboot ‘Definitely Will Happen’ Says Comic Creator

18 August 2015 4:04 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

To say the planned reboot of The Crow has had a troubled history is a bit of an understatement. Since it was announced in 2008, it’s road to the big screen has been beset with every problem you could think of, losing directora and actors, including Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, and Jack Huston, with alarming regularity. The final nail in the coffin seemed to come just a few weeks ago, when the studio that held the rights, Relativity, filed for bankruptcy. That seemed to be it. No more The Crow. But that doesn’t appear to be the case, with The Crow comic book creator, James O’Barr, stating at Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, New York (via, “It’s still very much a live property”. O’Barr went onto elaborate on where the rights to the property actually lie right now, saying,  “The company, Pressman Films, »

The Crow Reboot Is Still Happening

18 August 2015 3:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Miramax Films

The phrase “development hell” is tossed around a lot these days, but few films know the meaning of it better than the long-mooted reboot of The Crow. The project, which has been percolating under various creative gazes for almost a decade now, and has seen several high-profile actors come and go (Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper and Luke Evans were all at one time attached), hit a new stumbling block with the disintegration of its financier Relativity.

This still hasn’t dissuaded the character’s original creator James O’Barr though, who feels the reboot is still healthy.

Talking as part of a panel at the Twin Tiers Comic-Con in New York, O’Barr had this to say:

“It’s still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like »

"The Crow" Reboot Is Still Alive?

One of the titles that was apparently killed the other week during the collapse of Relativity Media was that of the long in the works and long troubled reboot of "The Crow" franchise.

Despite its apparent death though, the franchise's creator James O'Barr says the project is still very much alive. Speaking at the Twin Tiers Comic Con in New York State last weekend, O'Barr told

"It's still very much a live property. The company, Pressman Films, that owns The Crow film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad movies and lost money so now they're in financial trouble. So the producers are just going to take it to another studio if Relativity can't get backing again. It's going to happen."

O'Barr has reportedly been in touch with Pressman Films who've advised that the property should be able »

Fans of The Crow desperately awaiting the reboot haven't had the best of luck over the past few years. Earlier this month, the project's studio home, Relativity Media, filed for bankruptcy, stalling it yet again, despite reports that the studio still planned on starting production this fall. James O'Barr, who created the comic book the original movie and the reboot is based on, revealed at the Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, NY last weekend that the movie will still happen, once they find a new studio.
