Warner Bros. Pushes The Conjuring 2 to 2016 and Schedules Untitled Horror Film for Halloween 2015

40 minutes ago

Warner Bros. started developing a sequel to The Conjuring before the first movie opened.  That bet paid off when The Conjuring grossed over $300 million worldwide.  After two weeks, The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle has already reached $166 million worldwide.  The studio, who must be thrilled with the new horror franchise, had scheduled The Conjuring 2 for October 23, 2015 with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga set to return as the paranormal investigators.  However, Warner Bros. pumped the brakes a bit, delaying The Conjuring 2 to 2016. In a corresponding move, Warner Bros. scheduled a untitled horror film from New Line in its place on October 23, 2015.  Deadline speculates the unspecified project could be 1) Crawlspace, starring Michael Vartan as a widower who moves into a house troubled by "a very disturbing secret from the past" or, 2) Superstition, set at "a house that was once the site of a witch’s execution."

Gotham Recap: “Viper”

47 minutes ago

Tonight's episode of Fox's Gotham was particularly difficult to watch for the lactose intolerant.  Yes, a bulk of the episode's plot centered on a drug that drained the victims of their body's calcium, leading them to binge on dairy projects before eventually collapsing under their own body weight as their bones crumbled from the inside.  Pure nuttiness.  That aside, there was a good bit of this hour dedicated to young Master Wayne and his ever-present desire to solve his parents' murder once and for all, now, thankfully, with more help from Alfred.  Robin Lord Taylor's Penguin continues to steal the show, followed closely by Donal Logue's roguish Harvey Bullock, but is it enough to keep viewers addicted? Hit the jump for our Gotham recap. Tonight's villain of the week: A strange, one-eared man who drops a green vial that reads "Breath Me" into an addict/musician's open guitar case. »

Tom Riley, Laura Haddock, Blake Ritson and Gregg Chillin Talk Da Vinci’S Demons Season 3, Working with a New Showrunner, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and Much More

2 hours ago

Last week at New York Comic-Con, I landed an awesome extended video interview with Da Vinci’s Demons stars Tom RileyLaura HaddockBlake Ritson and Gregg Chillin.  While I've found group interviews to be sometimes difficult, the interview you're about to watch is definitely one of my favorites.  As you'll see, the four of them look and act like close friends and they were able to have a lot of fun with my questions while also teasing what's to come on Da Vinci’s Demons season 3 (which they're almost done filming). During the interview they talked about working with a new showrunner, how the new season is more grounded and will be set in Florence more than previous seasons, collaborating with the writers, how the season starts and what it's about, the way they like to work, how many takes they get to do, how much they like to know about future storylines, »

Pixar Confirms Peter Sohn as The Good Dinosaur Director with Teaser Video

2 hours ago

The folks at Pixar are no stranger to significantly overhauling their films during production—Ratatouille and Toy Story 2 were both essentially started over from scratch when Brad Bird and John Lassetter replaced the previous directors, respectively—but The Good Dinosaur has been a curious case.  The film was initially planned as Up co-director Bob Peterson’s first Pixar film as principal director, but Peterson was removed from the project nine months before release.  Then, eight months before release, Pixar pushed The Good Dinosaur off its May 2014 release date all the way back to November 25, 2015.  When Peterson was taken off the project, Pixar neglected to name a replacement and simply stated that the Pixar Brain Trust was acting as interim director for the time being. The last official word we heard about the film was over a year ago, but now things appear to be back on track as Pixar »

Donal Logue Talks Gotham, the Rumors He Was Going to Play Jim Gordon, What Drew Him to the Role, the Possibility of a Terriers Reunion, and More

3 hours ago

Last week at New York Comic-Con, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with Donal Logue for Gotham.  At the center of the show is Ben McKenzie as a young Detective Jim Gordon, who comes onto the force to work with veteran Harvey Bullock, played by Donal Logue.  The main antagonists that emerge are Jada Pinkett Smith as an original character, Fish Mooney, and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepott, the man who becomes the Penguin.  Balancing out the cast are Erin Richards as Gordon’s mysterious fiancée Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth.  While all shows take a bit of time to find a rhythm that works, Gotham is loaded with a talented cast and has The Mentalist and Rome alum Bruno Heller as the executive producer/writer, so I’m rooting for it. During the interview, »

James Gunn Talks Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, Discusses Possible Additions to the Team

4 hours ago

With Guardians of the Galaxy crossing $700 Million at the global box office (and the Blu-ray hitting on December 9th) it's definitely a positive thing that writer/director James Gunn is already hard at work on the sequel, in fact he commenced work on the script on the Sunday after the film opened to larger-than-projected box office.  As a side note, back in January who would have thought this film would have been the biggest grosser of 2014 by a country mile? Anyway, Gunn recently spoke about the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and, while is comments were of course slight (they sort of have to be at this point) they're interesting enough to warrant a small mention.  Hit the jump for more on Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  The original film incidentally will have a ton of special features when it does get that Blu-ray release in December. Definitely picking that one up. »

Adam McKay Says Uptown Saturday Night Isn’t Happening; The Big Short Is Next But Step Brothers 2 Could Happen in a Few Years

5 hours ago

Adam McKay is certainly one of the most talented people working in the comedy genre today, with a career that goes back to his days as head writer on SNL and includes writing and directing evergreen comedies like Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and Step Brothers.  Recently, though, McKay has shown an ambitiousness that sees him branching out into different avenues.  He tackled his first sequel with the absurdly funny Anchorman 2, he worked with collaborator Paul Rudd to rewrite Marvel Studios’ upcoming superhero film Ant-Man, and his next film may seem him taking on dramatic material. Steve recently sat down with McKay in anticipation of the upcoming short film series We the Economy: 20 Short Films You Can’t Afford to Miss, and during the course of their conversation he provided updates on a number of upcoming projects.  He revealed that his Uptown Saturday Night remake is not going forward, but said »

PaleyFest NY: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet and Executive Producer Jeph Loeb Talk Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

5 hours ago

Now that the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier have rippled down to the ABC TV series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., things are moving forward at a breakneck pace.  Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) is trying to rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. while Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) keeps an eye on his sanity, and Skye (Chloe Bennet) is trying to come to terms with the fact that she opened her heart to Agent Ward (Brett Dalton) and he turned out to be Hydra, while Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) are trying to get back to being Fitz and Simmons.

Robert Downey Jr. Says Captain America 3 Is “Gonna Be Huge” Thus Putting Hugeness Doubts to Rest

5 hours ago

I enjoy Marvel’s constant change-ups with fan expectations.  Immediately following Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it was looking like Captain America 3 would be driven by the hunt for Bucky.  That could still be the case in terms of a baseline or prologue, but what Marvel is really going for is setting up a big plot arc with Civil War (a.k.a “Thanos Who?”), and they managed to nab Robert Downey Jr. as a co-lead.  There are plenty of reasons to be excited for the third Captain America movie because the future is wonderful, mysterious, and glorious place where anything is possible. And we will be able to let our imaginations run wild for almost a year as we wonder what Marvel is cooking, and everyone involved in Cap 3 has to be evasive until Entertainment Weekly gets a big, studio-timed cover story that reveals actual information.  But until then, »

Simon Kinberg Explains Why We Haven’t Seen Anything from The Fantastic Four

6 hours ago

As we laid out recently, there are a lot of superhero movies coming up; the year 2016 will bring us seven such films alone.  One of the biggest question marks in the near future, however, is The Fantastic Four reboot.  It’s not so much that there’s doubt about director Josh Trank (Chronicle) rebooting the material, or that fans are unsure about the casting—Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Tobey Kebbell is a really solid lineup.  It’s that we haven’t seen a single thing from this movie yet.  Granted, it isn’t set to hit theaters until next August, but by this point we’ve usually seen something from a property of this scale.  Marvel released the first Ant-Man image and poster the week that filming began.  Warner Bros. has been rolling out a number of promo images for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, »

Eli Roth to Executive Produce Cabin Fever Remake Using Original Film’s Script

6 hours ago

That Cabin Fever remake is actually happening, but not in the way one might expect.  It’s being reported that the film will go into production this week in Portland, Oregon, but there’s no mention of a screenwriter.  Why?  Because director Travis Zariwny will be working with the exact same script that Eli Roth and Randy Pearlstein co-penned for the 2002 edition. Hit the jump for more on how that will work and to check out the new crop of 20-somethings that will face off against the notorious flesh-eating virus. According to Deadline, this new rendition of Cabin Fever will star Gage Golightly of Teen Wolf, Paranormal Activity 3’s Dustin Ingram, Exists’ Samuel Davis, Matthew Daddario of When the Game Stands Tall and Nadine Crocker.  Just like the original, they’ll rent a cabin in the woods and come in contact with a wicked virus that eats away at their skin. »

There are a couple of details worth highlighting.   The house in the third image is the exterior of Elise’s house. »

Hasbro to Release My Little Pony Movie in 2017

8 hours ago

I used to love My Little Pony as a kid, but never realized it was still so popular until I started going to San Diego Comic Con.  If you want one of those My Little Pony Sdcc exclusives, you better get to that convention center at the crack of dawn, if not earlier, because people go nuts for them. Knowing that, it comes as no surprise that Hasbro Studios is making a push to bring My Little Pony’s popularity to the big screen in 2017 with Ice Age: Continental Drift’s Joe Ballarini penning the script.  Hit the jump for more on the upcoming My Little Pony movie. According to Variety, Hasbro is using its Allspark Pictures label for this one, just like with Jem and the Holograms.  Hasbro will produce and finance the film in house, and is already talking to studios regarding distribution options.

Producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have had a pretty successful partnership that goes back to Nip/Tuck, with the duo spearheading the hit FX horror anthology series American Horror Story and the upcoming true crime anthology series American Crime Story.  Murphy and Falchuk added one more person to their team in creating the Fox comedy Glee, producing the musical comedy series with Ian Brennan.  As Glee winds down its current final season, the trio is planning a new show to premiere in Fall 2015, Scream Queens.  Fox has given a straight-to-series order for the comedy-horror show, which will also be an anthology series that “resets” each season with a new setting and story.  Hit the jump for much more on the show.

Director David Ayer Says His Suicide Squad Movie Is “The Dirty Dozen with Supervillains”

9 hours ago

Warner Bros. dropped a number of news bombs last week when it unveiled its slate of DC Comics movies through the year 2020, announcing casting and director news in the process.  One of the more curious revelations was the fact that a Suicide Squad movie would be the first DC adaptation to hit theaters after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in March 2016.  Instead of following the sure-to-be-massive superhero pic up with something more recognizable like Wonder Woman or even Aquaman, Warner Bros. is going with a more obscure title that will certainly be an outlier in the superhero genre. Fury and End of Watch director David Ayer was confirmed as the director of Suicide Squad—the story of a group of supervillains on missions—during the news dump, and now Ayer has spoken a bit about his plans for the comic book adaptation.  Ayer likened the film »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron to Mark Marvel’s Highest VFX Shot Count

9 hours ago

According to Marvel’s VP of Visual Effects and Post-Production, Victoria Alonso, Captain America: The Winter Solider had 2,500 VFX shots and Guardians of the Galaxy came in with 2,750.  You know how many Avengers: Age of Ultron may have?  More than 3,000, making it Marvel’s largest VFX count to date.  In order to make that happen, the studio will likely have to team up with seven to 12 VFX vendors in five to seven different countries. Hit the jump for more on the Age of Ultron post-production process and Alonso’s thoughts on the new bill to increase tax incentives for filming in California. While at the Visual Effects Society Production Summit, Alonso discussed the “Marvel process.”  According to THR, she called it “ever flowing” with collaboration, beginning with “story and visual development.”  She further explained that the story begins with the comics and then the studio devises “ideas for how »

The Comeback Makes a Comeback in Full-Length Trailer for New Episodes

9 hours ago

HBO has released a full-length The Comeback trailer for the revival of the critically acclaimed but short-lived comedy series starring Lisa Kudrow.  The cult favorite premiered in 2005 to rave reviews, as its mockumentary style followed a washed-up sitcom actress whose “comeback” on a new sitcom was captured by a documentary crew.  In many ways the show was ahead of its time, and Kudrow was magnificent in the lead role.  HBO has resurrected the series for a new six-episode event, and this new trailer shows that everyone is back—yes, even Jane.  This new engagement picks up nine years after the events of the first season, as Kudrow’s Valerie Cherish has been tapped to star in an HBO series.  The trailer is really, really funny, and I can’t wait to devour these new episodes when they premiere on HBO next month. Hit the jump to watch the new The Comeback trailer. »

Exclusive Dredd Miniseries Images and Poster; Superfiend Arrives on October 27th

10 hours ago

It’s huge that 2012’s Dredd amassed such an enthusiastic cult following, but the film only took in $35.6 million at the worldwide box office so it’s no wonder that the fate of the sequel is still so uncertain.  However, producer Adi Shankar isn’t going to let that stop him from bringing us more Dredd. While we continue to keep our fingers crossed for Dredd 2, Shankar is going to hold us over with a web series called Superfiend.  When we first told you about it a couple of weeks ago, it seemed as though it’d follow in the footsteps of Shankar’s past “Bootleg Universe” installments, The Punisher: Dirty Laundry and Venom: Truth in Journalism, run with a live-action format and possibly feature stars from the film, but Superfiend is actually an animated series.  Hit the jump to get a sense of what’s coming in our exclusive poster and Dredd miniseries images. »
