Not that Kong: Skull Island necessarily needed more monsters, as it was loaded with awesome ones, but director Jordan Vogt-Roberts just shared a concept sketch for a creature that *almost* made it into the film… and goddamn, we kinda wish it did! “Here’s an unused creature design for Kong,” Vogt-Roberts tweeted. “There was a whole […] »

Kong: Skull Island was almost even crazier. In my review of Kong: Skull Island here on Bd, I gave the film 5 out of 5 skulls because I felt it was everything anyone could have possibly wanted it to be. Doing away with the traditional King Kong movie, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts set his reboot during […] »

Liam Hoofe takes a look at potential actors for the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid movie…
Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of Kong: Skull Island, confirmed this month that he is committed to making the “truest, most balls to the wall, Metal Gear version” of Metal Gear Solid, the popular game franchise which looks finally set to get a big movie adaptation.
An adaptation of the successful video game series has been on Hollywood’s to-do list for years, and it makes a lot of sense. The game is one of the most cinematic of all time, with a complex narrative spanning decades and strong, detailed characters that really jump off the screen.
One thing that is essential to making the movie work, as with most video game adaptations, is making sure the main character is cast correctly. Solid Snake is one of the most iconic video game heroes of all time, »

Star Wars Director
After the news last week that Colin Trevorrow had left Star Wars: Episode IX over “creative differences”, Disney and Lucasfilm officially announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams will be stepping in to helm the galaxy far, far away again. I guess Patty Jenkins was busy? “With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy,” said Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

Episode IX Pushed Back
And with that, it should come as no surprise that Star Wars: Episode IX has now been pushed back so new screenwriters Abrams and Chris Terrio can flesh out a new script. Episode IX will now open on December 20th 2019, putting it in competition with Universal’s Wicked and Sony’s Masters of the Universe. Read more here. »

Jordan Vogt-Roberts has been attached to direct a feature adaptation of the critically acclaimed video series Metal Gear Solid since 2014, and given the success of his last movie Kong: Skull Island, it seems we may be edging ever closer to seeing Solid Snake on the big screen.
During an interview with Gamespot, Vogt-Roberts has revealed that he’s been working with Sony to ensure that “we’re making the truest, most balls-to-the-wall Metal Gear version” of the movie.
“I really give credit to the people I’m working with at Sony, the executives and the producers. I was able to go to them and say, ‘Let’s stop where we are, because I think we’re heading down a direction that doesn’t fully capture why people love this game, what Kojima’s voice is, why people who have played this game for decades love it, why people who have »

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?
That’s a question that will be posed by Godzilla Vs. Kong in three years’ time, and make no mistake; Adam Wingard’s epic crossover will crown a definitive winner when the great ape and Gojira go head-to-head. And what a spectacle it’ll be.
Dubbed a “massive monster movie brawl” of epic proportions by Wingard himself, who is fresh off Netflix original Death Note, it’s since been revealed that Godzilla Vs. Kong will feature multiple sky-scraping monsters alongside the two titular deities – perhaps we’ll see a return of those MUTOs come 2020? Time will tell.
When asked about the movie’s overall sensibility, though, Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts outlined how his Vietnam-era blockbuster compares to Wingard’s vision for Godzilla Vs. Kong during a recent interview with Collider.
And so, after recounting his involvement in Destiny 2‘s stunning live-action trailer, »

Harley Quinn 2018
With three films to chose from – Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2 and the proposed Joker/Harley movie – Margot Robbie feels that she will return as Harley Quinn by next year. I think next year I’ll be back in the fishnets wielding a baseball bat. I hope,” said Robbie, before being asked which film it would be for: “Your guess is as good as mine at this point. I don’t know.” Read more here.
Thanks to Topps’ series of trading cards, we’ve got a brand new look at a selection of the heroes and villains of December’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Check them out here.
It Certainly Floated

Back in June comic book writer Mark Millar claimed on social media that he’d heard whispers that Warner Bros. was inviting pitches for a Superman: Red Son adaptation, with Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts subsequently revealing that he’d spoken to the studio about that very possibility.
At the time, the idea of an adaptation of Red Son – an alternate reality story which sees the infant Kal-El crashlanding in the Soviet Union, as opposed to Smallville, Kansas – seemed odd, given that the story wouldn’t fit with the continuity of the DC Extended Universe. However, since then, we’ve heard that Warner is looking to launch a new DC label outside of the shared universe, meaning that a Red Son movie could well be back on the table.
During an interview with Collider, director Vogt-Roberts was asked about his thoughts on this new venture, and whether he’s »

This is either going to be the best, or worst news you hear all day depending on where you stand with Kong: Skull Island. There seems to be two trains of thought here: 1) Kong: Skull Island is a refreshing change of course from the darker Godzilla reboot, or 2) the latest Kong sacrificed the emotional heft, and tone generated from 2014’s Godzilla to create a mindless Monster-Brawler.
Well, here’s hoping you fall into the former category as director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of Kong: Skull Island, promises a similar vibe for Godzilla vs. Kong. In an interview with Collider, Vogt-Roberts revealed that he has had conversations with Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard (You’re Next, Death Note) regarding the tone of the upcoming film, and it appears that they are on the same page:
“Talking to Adam made me so happy because he, in particular, really understands the kind of anime, »

"It's time to bring out the big guns." Time for something a bit different than the movie trailers we normally see, but still totally fun. Filmmaker Jordan Vogt-Roberts (director of Kong: Skull Island and The Kings of Summer) has made a live-action trailer for the new video game Destiny 2 from Bungie. Sometimes we'll post one of these game trailers because it's live-action and because it's directed by a talented filmmaker who usually makes movies. That's certainly the case with this, and it's a very amusing trailer set to Beastie Boys "Sabotage". Vogt-Roberts has also been posting some behind-the-scenes footage and photos on his Twitter recently, to give us an inside look at the process of making this trailer. If you want to pick up a copy of the video game, it's already available now. Fire it up. And then back to our regularly scheduled movie coverage. Check out Jordan Vogt-Roberts »

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is keeping busy. Coming off the success of Kong: Skull Island, he's got adaptations of Metal Gear Solid and The Stars My Destination in development, but rather than rushing into production on a new feature film or even returning to the excellent TV series You're the Worst (for which he helmed the pilot), he decided to go back to commercials and direct the fun Destiny 2 trailer. Last week, I spoke with Vogt-Roberts about the Destiny 2 trailer and was also went into a variety of other topics including the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong, … »
