Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen appeared together as superpowered heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War.

'X-Men' Spinoff 'New Mutants' is a Horror Movie and Might Co-star Rosario Dawson

25 May 2017 9:00 PM, PDT

With Deadpool and Logan both bigger box office hits than the last team-based X-Men movie, another spinoff is also aiming to be something different. Here's everything we know about New Mutants through the latest updates: How will New Mutants be different from other X-Men movies?  Although an ensemble effort, The New Mutants isn't really an X-Men team movie or part of the primary series because it's about a young group of mutants learning to use their powers. But the latest on how different it'll be is that it'll be a horror movie. "We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe,” writer-director Josh Boone tells Entertainment Weekly...

Sony Hires 'Beyond The Lights' Director For Their Silver Sable and Black Cat Movie

25 May 2017 4:45 PM, PDT

Sony shook up the superhero scene when they signed a deal with Disney to let Spider-Man in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time ever. But as with all good things, there was a catch. Sony wasn't giving all of Spider-Man's world over to the McU. They still planned to keep much of it for themselves. Just last week they revealed that Tom Hardy had been cast in a Venom movie to be directed by Ruben Fleisher, and now this week we've got news about Sony's other cornerstone of their non-mcu, non-Spider-Man Marvel universe. Gina Prince-Bythewood (picured above) is set to direct the Silver Sable and Black Cat movie. We already knew Sony was planning a movie based on the two iconic characters, but hiring the director of the terrific Love &amp...

25 May 2017 12:00 PM, PDT

X-23: Logan introduced the dynamic Dafne Keen as Laura, aka X-23, a young mutant whose actions spoke louder than her words. Will she appear again in an X-Men movie? Producer Hutch Parker says the challenge is "to find a story that we think she could carry or certainly be kind of majorly significant within … the one that we've been kind of discussing loosely and kicking around is more likely to be its own film." [IGN]   John Wick: Chapter 3: Director Chad Stahelski says the next installment in the John Wick series is "in the middle" of the writing process right now and production may get underway by the end of this year or the beginning of 2018.

'Tron: Legacy' Director Wanted for 'Top Gun 2'

25 May 2017

Earlier today, we got an update on the status of Top Gun 2, and now we've got more news about the long-awaited sequel. Here's what we know so far: Is it really happening?  According to Tom Cruise, "definitely." He believes they'll begin shooting next year.  Who's going to direct? Sadly, original Top Gun helmer Tony Scott is no longer with us, so Paramount is reportedly eyeing Joseph Kosinski for the job, according to Variety. What makes him qualified? Kosinski's first two movies are good indicators that he's right for Top Gun 2. With Tron: Legacy, he showed he could deliver a follow-up to a decades-old classic (that was 28 years after Tron, the Top Gun sequel would be around 33-34 years after the...

Final 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' Trailer Is Colorful, Wild and Thrilling

24 May 2017 1:00 PM, PDT

When it was first announced two years ago, Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets immediately reminded us of Besson's own The Fifth Element. It's based on a French graphic novel that follows two time travel agents who go on fantastical adventures. Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne were cast as the time travel agents  Amazingly, the first trailer, released last November, lived up to our expectations, resembling The Fifth Element on steroids, a wildly imaginative sci-fi adventure full of colorful creatures, characters and worlds.

Superhero Buzz: 'Wonder Woman' Sequel Plans, Plus: How 'The Little Mermaid' Influenced the Film

23 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT

We are less than two weeks out from the next DC superhero movie, one that already has a lot of positive buzz, so here's a roundup of the latest word from the DC Extended Universe:    Wonder Woman sequel? And why no post-credits scene? While we wait to see if Warner Bros. greenlights a Wonder Woman sequel, producer Charles Roven says that as of now, no sequel has been planned. “I think that [director Patty Jenkins] is going to have a lot of options after this movie,” he told JoBlo. “I believe that she’s dedicated to the character. So I’m hopeful that she’ll be back for another one. But there is no other one yet in the works to commit to.”  As far as why there's no post-credits...

Mel Brooks Says 'Spaceballs 2' Is Still Possible

23 May 2017 2:30 PM, PDT

Once upon a time, Mel Brooks was a mighty force in comic cinema. Beginning with The Producers in 1967, he directed a string of very funny movies, reaching an early crescendo with Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, both released in 1974. The movies that followed -- Silent Movie, High Anxiety and History of the World: Part 1, may have been a step down in consistency and popularity, even though they were still hilarious. In 1987, he faced his toughest challenge yet, making fun of popular sci-fi movies (mostly the original Star Wars trilogy) in Spaceballs. The intentionally low-budget look and feel of the movie was, of course, part of the joke (watch the clip above), and Brooks was spot-on with much of the humor, which ridiculed the costumes, the portentous dialogue, silly...
