Hellboy: Ron Perlman On What The Third Film Would Have Been About
1 hour ago
Late last year, Guillermo del Toro took to social media to gauge interest in a potential Hellboy III. For years, fans have been hungry to see actor Ron Perlman return to the fold as the red-skinned comic book hero. Sadly, however, although del Toro gathered enough interest to initiate talks, it seems as though the historically muted performance of the previous films were just too much to overcome. Del Toro said that, despite their efforts, a Hellboy III was simply not in the cards.
Cut to a couple weeks back, and it seems like it had less to do with the property of Hellboy, and more to do with the particular interpretation. Maybe audiences just weren’t as interested in seeing the same vision for a third time. In order to garner a bigger audience, perhaps they just needed to take things in a whole new (R-rated) direction. As we reported earlier this month, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Star Tom Holland To Play Young Nathan Drake In Long-Awaited Uncharted Film
1 hour ago
What a long and convoluted journey to film Uncharted has had. Like many video game movies in the mix, Uncharted seems to be in a constant state of start-and-go when it comes to their movies. One minute we hear cast, script, and directing news regarding a long-awaited film, only for it to disappear from radar of the course of the next few years. Uncharted has long since fallen victim to that trend. When last we heard, Real Steel and Stranger Things director Shawn Levy was on board to helm the video game adaptation, but as expected, things seem to have gone radio silent.
However, this latest news may be exactly what this film needs to get its production into high gear. According to Deadline, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland has signed on to play a young Nathan Drake in the Uncharted film. That’s right. Rather than go the more traditional, »

The Forever War #4 & Freeway Fighter #1 Review
2 hours ago
Finaly The Next Issue!!! I have been looking forward to this book for some time, again a story based on the book by Joe Haldeman. We find our two main characters Potter and William stuck on an Earth that they do not understand. After being gone so long with the war with the Taurans, they do not have much of a choice to decide how to live their lives out. They go back to the military life that they both hated so much, not knowing how to deal with changes on Earth and only understanding the military life. In this chapter both get injured and later get promoted in the story. They only have each other in more or less, in world that has moved on without them. If you have read the last few post about this story, time is a huge factor in this storyline. »

Cyborg: Ray Fisher Says Film Is Still On Track For 2020 Release
3 hours ago
Many would argue that the future of the DC Comics extended universe rests on the performances of Wonder Woman and Justice League. While that could very well be the case, DC doesn’t appear to be discouraged. It was confirmed today by Ray Fisher at a City of Heroes convention that there are still most assuredly plans for a Cyborg solo movie, with its release date still on course for its originally-planned 2020 release. Fans will get their first look at the character, played by Fisher, in just a few short months in Justice League.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He'll Be Back In Next Terminator Film
6 hours ago
Though the sequels that were intended to follow 2015's Terminator Genisys were canceled after that film's lackluster performance and tepid reception, the Terminator franchise is far from dead. It was already announced that James Cameron, creator of the property, was returning to produce and shepherd a new approach to the classic series of films, with Deadpool's Tim Miller set to direct. Whatever direction the new film takes, we now know of another important returning player.
Screen Daily sat down with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, where the actor confirmed that he will, indeed, be back... again:
“It is back. It is moving forward. [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise. I will be in the movie.”
So, how do we continue from here? The franchise has already had two "reboots" of sorts, 2009's Terminator Salvation and the aforementioned Genisys. The former was meant »

The Resident Evil Film Franchise Is Getting A Reboot
7 hours ago
The Resident Evil films just wrapped up this January with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the sixth film in the franchise. Based rather loosely on the Capcom videogame series of the same name, all six films starred Milla Jovovich as she took on zombies and the villainous Umbrella Corporation. The first Resident Evil film was released fifteen years ago in 2002, and until today, The Final Chapter was thought to be... well... the final chapter in the franchise.
Yet, like the zombies featured in the films, Resident Evil just won't die. Variety reports that the German company that owns the rights to Resident Evil, Constantin Film, has announced they will be producing a reboot. Nothing is really known about the reboot at this juncture. There's no word on writers, directors, actors, or how/if the film will fit into the narrative of the original six films.
