Secret X-Men Movie 143 Gets Deadpool Director Tim Miller

20th Century Fox is expanding its X-Men franchise even further, with a secret project called 143. While no plot details have been given, there is already quite a bit of talent lined up behind the camera, with Deadpool director Tim Miller set to take the helm, working from a script that is currently being developed by comic book legend Brian Michael Bendis. The studio hasn't set a production schedule or a release date at this time, but this report did confirm that the project is set within the X-Men universe.

With no clues given as to the 143 title, its possible this title could refer to a specific X-Men comic book issue. The original X-Men comics from the 1960s ended its run of original issues at #66, although Marvel later reprinted older comic book stories as issues #67-93. The Uncanny X-Men comics by iconic writer Chris Claremont helped breathe new life into the

Time travel and romantic comedies: a perfect love match?

Mark Harrison Feb 14, 2018

Christopher Reeve, Back To The Future, About Time, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time: join us as we examine time travel in romcoms...

Love is complicated enough without time travel. When time becomes a factor in a relationship, that relationship may be in trouble. In science fiction especially, time travel is a wrinkle that both brings lovers together and keeps them separate in some temporally devastating way.

Marty McFly almost breaks up his parents before they even get together, Kyle Reese falls in love with Sarah Connor when tasked with saving her life, Captain America misses out on a dance with Peggy Carter by getting frozen for 70 years (still technically time travel, if a bit low-tech), and on TV, River Song and the Doctor experience their marriage in almost opposite directions.

But just as romance factors into timey-wimey movies like Back To The Future, The Terminator and Groundhog Day,

10 Terminator 2 Facts You Never Knew

10 Terminator 2 Facts You Never Knew
"Have you seen this boy?" In the wake of success for The Terminator, it was hard to imagine how a sequel could up the ante. Yet Terminator 2: Judgment Day did exactly that, with a battle hardened super-ripped Sarah Connor, a rebellious adolescent John, a brand new liquid metal Terminator and an Arnold model programmed to do good. Here we take a look at 10 things you never knew about Terminator 2.

To kill or not to kill.

Arnold originally met with the team behind The Terminator about the role of Kyle Reese. Arnold was looking for heroic leading man roles, not villainous killing machines, but James Cameron coaxed him into playing the T-800 by assuring him that The Terminator would be such a cool character, audiences would root for him. In a fun twist of fate, by the time the sequel rolled around, Arnold had the opposite concern: he was

Will Arnold Schwarzenegger Make A Cameo In The Predator?

When any of us recall our favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, we tend to bring up his more iconic offerings from the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Although Raw Deal will likely continue to be criminally overlooked, the likes of The Terminator, Commando and Total Recall are often among the most fondly remembered. But, if you repeatedly find yourself in a situation that requires you get to the chopper with haste, then Predator is probably the action flick for you.

That being said, we’re all aware that whenever a beloved franchise is revived on the big screen these days, it’s not uncommon for the filmmakers to try to lure familiar actors from the originals back, be it in a large role or a mere cameo. As such, Schwarzenegger has been brought up in conversation many times already in regards to the next Predator film. Unfortunately, however, everything we’ve heard

New RoboCop movie in development, direct sequel to original

Mike Cecchini Jan 23, 2018

There's some kind of new RoboCop movie in the works, and it isn't a reboot.

Is there anything more frustrating than the RoboCop franchise? The first movie is an undisputed classic, and it would be enough for it to be merely one of the greatest action/sci-fi movies ever made. The fact that it has a thread of sharp (and more and more prescient) satire woven through it only makes it better. As a standalone genre film, it can stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Alien, The Terminator, and yes, even Star Wars.

But unlike those other films, whose respective franchises have some highs beyond their first installments, RoboCop...does not. We can charitably call RoboCop 2 a divisive movie, and even its defenders are unlikely to argue that it bests the original. RoboCop 3...happened. There were some attempts to make RoboCop work on TV in live action,

10 Things About The Terminator You Never Knew

10 Things About The Terminator You Never Knew
The Terminator. It's one of the greatest sci-fi thrillers ever made. It launched several sequels, a television series, and several spinoffs in all types of media, gave us one of Arnold's most famous catchphrases and made James Cameron one of Hollywood's most bankable directors, years before Titanic or Avatar. But he road to production wasn't exactly a smooth one, and there's quite a lot of history behind the project. Today we look at 10 things you don't know about The Terminator.

At first, The Terminator was all a dream.

James Cameron had exactly one feature film credit to his name when he came up with the idea for The Terminator: Piranha II: The Spawning. While sick with fever, Cameron had a dream about a skeletal metal death machine emerging from a fire, as though it had been covered in human flesh. A cybernetic organism, one might say...

Hollywood counted out James Cameron.

James Cameron on Eliza Dushku’s ‘True Lies’ Assault: ‘Had I Known About It, There Would Have Been No Mercy’
James Cameron, legendary director of “The Terminator” and “Avatar,” praised the bravery of Eliza Dushku in coming forward to speak out regarding the molestation she experienced on the set of his 1994 film “True Lies.”

“Eliza is very brave for speaking up,” he said at the Television Critics Association press tour Saturday, also noting that she is one of many women speaking out about past abuse. “I think this has been endemic throughout human systems — it’s just heartbreaking that it happened to her.”

A Kitty Pryde Spinoff Movie Is In The Works With Deadpool’s Tim Miller

Renown X-Men character Kitty Pryde (Aka Shadowcat) has been earmarked for her own spinoff at Fox.

Collider has the scoop, revealing that Tim Miller (Deadpool) is developing a potential solo movie for the all-powerful mutant. Exciting though that may be, the outlet goes on to stress that, due to the historic Disney-Fox merger, Miller’s project may never take that definitive step into production.

Couple this with the director’s stacked schedule (read: The Terminator and…Sonic the Hedgehog) and it’s important to keep our expectations in check at this early, early stage. A Kitty Pryde movie is in development, but if history has taught us anything, it’s that just because a project sparks into life at a major Hollywood studio – 20th Century Fox, in this instance – doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll see the light of day. And let’s face it; the impending Disney buyout will surely complicate matters further.

Gal Gadot Says James Cameron Was Trying To Get Publicity When He Criticized ‘Wonder Woman’

Not everyone fell in love with the universally adored “Wonder Woman,” and one prominent filmmaker who had a few bones to pick with the movie was James Cameron. Over the summer, the director said the movie presented “an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing!” adding that “I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards.” Later, Cameron stuck by his position, saying that the current iteration of Wonder Woman is too sexualized, unlike his own female hero Sarah Connor from “The Terminator” movies.

Crypt of Curiosities: Enzo G. Castellari’s Bronx Movies

  • DailyDead
Escape From New York is one of the greatest genre films ever made. It’s lean, it’s mean, and it has an absurd premise and setting that’s just begging for exploration. It’s a bona-fide John Carpenter classic. And much like Halloween before it, it inspired quite a few knockoffs. From Sergio Martino’s 2019: After the Fall of New York (1983) to Lockout (2012), Escape From New York has become a regular genre knockoff touchstone. But today, I want to focus on just two: Enzo. G Castarelli’s Bronx series.

The saga began in 1982 with 1990: The Bronx Warriors, Castellari’s attempt to blend Escape From New York, The Road Warrior, and The Warriors into one sci-fi actioner. The film is set in, well, the Bronx circa 1990, now a “no man’s land” where absurdly themed gangs run free and squabble over land without police interference. The skyline is intact,
