Force Friday First Look

Well, it might not be until September but the Star Wars Twitter account released a teaser image of the packaging for Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise. While it doesn’t give a lot away, it does give our first look at Rey, Finn and Poe in the film – including a new hairstyle for Daisy Ridley as well as putting her front and centre with a lightsaber. There’s still no update on the trailer, but that should be with us by Star Wars Celebration in April. Read more about that story here.

Thank You, Sub-mariner

With Avengers: Infinity War currently in production, Marvel Studios appear to be looking towards their next set of projects. According to a tweet from Reel New Hawaii, Namor the Sub-Mariner is the next character in line for adaptation, but it doesn’t specify if its a film or TV show. »

Danny McBride says new Halloween is a sequel to the first two movies, promises “straight-up horror”

16 February 2017 9:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week came the rather exciting news that John Carpenter is returning to the Halloween franchise to executive produce a new movie, which will be directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) from a script by Green and Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down).

Initially, the project was described as a reboot, but speaking to CinemaBlend, McBride has revealed that the new movie will not be a remake, and will in fact serve as a sequel to the first two movies.

“You know, it’s not a remake,” said McBride. “It’s actually, it’s gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we’re focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there.”

Given the creative talent involved, there’s also been some speculation as to whether the new Halloween will »

Scooperhero News – Following Ben Affleck’s departure from the director’s chair, Warner Bros. might’ve already found a replacement for The Batman – which although they’re “very happy” with the script, still probably won’t be as good as The Lego Batman Movie released last week. Maybe that’ll change if Arnold Schwarzenegger joins the Dceu. Because that went so well last time.

X-Men: Supernova still seems to be about the Dark Phoenix Saga, and Josh Brolin needs to get used to talking about comic book movies again. He’s already potentially leaked one name for Avengers: Infinity War.

‘Halloween’/’It Follows’ Mash Up Video Shows the Rebirth of John Carpenter’s Style

13 February 2017 3:27 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Horror fans have had a lot to be happy about the past few years, with popular indie films like “The Babadook” and “The Witch” breathing new life into the genre. One recent movie in particular, “It Follows,” has been praised for its unique spin on the “stalker” film, but also for how well it channels the spirit of classic ’70s and ’80s horror films. This distinction has never been more apparent than in YouTuber Alessio Marinacci’s video highlighting the similarities of the 2014 film and horror master John Carpenter’s “Halloween.” You can check out the video here.

Newswire: Danny McBride says his Halloween movie won’t be funny or a remake

13 February 2017 10:41 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Horror fans were given a bit of pause last week, when it was announced that Danny McBride would be co-writing the new Halloween movie. After all, McBride is far better known for his comedy vehicles like Vice Principals and Eastbound & Down, and frankly, so is his writing partner David Gordon Green, who’s been tapped to direct the film. But when John Carpenter himself makes it clear that he trusts his legacy in their hands, you have to keep an open mind.

McBride is also doing his best to sell Halloween fans on his upcoming contribution to the film series. In a new interview with CinemaBlend, the erstwhile Kenny Powers says he and Green are going for “straight-up horror” with their movie by going back to the roots of the franchise.

The New ‘Halloween’: Where Danny McBride and David Gordon Green Will Take the Franchise

13 February 2017 10:20 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If there’s one thing missing from the glut of horror movies these days, it’s a modern take on the classic man-with-a-knife-on-the-loose slasher movie.

Few directors have exploited this premise as brilliantly as John Carpenter’s “Halloween” in 1978, which is why fans of the franchise were thrilled last week when Carpenter announced via his Facebook page that writer-director David Gordon Green and actor-producer Danny McBride were collaborating on a new installment of the franchise. McBride recently shared some details on the project with CinemaBlend:

“You know, it’s not a remake…It’s gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we’re focusing mainly on the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there.”

Danny McBride Explains How David Gordon Green’s ‘Halloween’ Won’t Be A Remake

Last week came the surprising news that David Gordon Green had been tapped to helm the long brewing “Halloween” remake, that this time around, has franchise creator John Carpenter involved as an executive producer and quality control measure. But *record scratch* — the movie won’t be a remake. That’s right, according to Green’s bud Danny McBride, who will be co-writing the horror picture, the duo won’t be yet again rebooting the narrative of Michael Myers, but instead, they’ll essentially be picking up where “Halloween II” left off.

New ‘Halloween’ Movie From Danny McBride Will Traumatize Audiences In 2018

12 February 2017 2:53 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

John Carpenter’s Halloween is one of the most iconic horror movies of all-time. On top of that, it launched a successful multimedia franchise. However, the last film, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, was poorly received. It released in 2009, and Michael Myers hasn’t victimized anyone since. However, Carpenter made an announcement on Facebook: he wants to “bring back Halloween […]

Scarlett Johansson defends Ghost in the Shell whitewashing, Warcraft 2 update, Halloween reboot and more – Daily News Roundup

11 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Scarjo Defends Ghost In The Shell

One of the big talking points coming out of the casting of Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell was the reported “whitewashing” of the role. Many have come out to defend the casting, and now Johansson herself has spoken out about it. “I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person,” she said in an interview. “Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.” Read more about that here.

On Thursday, John Carpenter dropped the Haddonfield bombshell horror fans have been waiting for when he announced that David Gordon Green and Danny McBride will be writing a new Halloween movie, with Green directing the anticipated new entry to the franchise. While details surrounding the story of the film are still under wraps, there has been some speculation that the latest Halloween film would be a remake, but McBride recently revealed that a remake isn't the direction he and Green are taking Michael Myers' story.

Speaking with CinemaBlend to promote the Blu-ray and DVD release of Vice Principals Season 1, McBride discussed which parts of the pre-existing Halloween mythology will influence the new movie:

Danny McBride Says New Halloween Movie Is “Not A Remake”

10 February 2017 3:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yesterday gifted us with some unexpected news. Danny McBride and David Gordon Green will write the next Halloween film, with Green directing what’s said to be a fresh take on the iconic franchise. The duo have worked together several times in the past, yet horror never entered the equation. As such, this is going to be a first for them in many ways.

With only a few precious details released so far, most assumed that they’d be remaking John Carpenter’s classic trendsetter, much like Rob Zombie did ten years go. According to McBride, however, that’s not the case. They’re not doing a remake at all, but rather a story continuation.

During a recent interview with Cinema Blend, the actor discussed the project and clarified a couple of things:

New Halloween Isn't a Remake, Will Follow First Two Movies

10 February 2017 2:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Horror fans haven't seen the iconic killer Michael Myers on screen since Rob Zombie's Halloween II, which is not what most would call a beloved entry in the franchise. In the years since, there have been talks of a remake or reboot of some sort and yesterday, we got confirmation from John Carpenter himself that a new Halloween movie is happening and will hit theaters next year. Shockingly, it will be Danny McBride and David Gordon Green behind the new movie, Halloween Returns, who are responsible for movies like Pineapple Express and Your Highness. Now, Danny McBride has confirmed that it is not going to be a remake.

Cinema Blend recently talked to Danny McBride about the new Halloween movie, which he is co-writing with David Gordon Green. According to him, it is not a remake and will actually follow in the footsteps of the first two John Carpenter directed Halloween movies. »

The New 'Halloween' Movie Is a Sequel, Not a Remake

10 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Nearly one year ago, we heard that John Carpenter was coming on board to serve as an executive producer for a new version of Halloween with the intention to make "a new version, one that fixes what Carpenter disliked about Rob Zombie's remake." Carpenter was said to be "dedicated to working closely with the director" and was also in negotiations to compose the musical score, as he did with the 1978 original that he directed. Now comes word directly from Carpenter that Danny McBride (Your Highness, above left) and David Gordon Green (above right) will write the screenplay and Green will direct the new version. Carpenter says: "David and Danny both came to my office recently with [producer] Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie...
