'Van Helsing' screenwriter: Mad Max was our inspiration for the character's new iteration

18 July 2016 3:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Not much is yet known about Universal’s Marvel Cinematic Universe-style Monster reboots, which have been racking up quite the cadre of A-list stars over the last several months. While shooting on The Mummy starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella is already complete and two of the other installments -- The Wolf Man and another untitled monster project -- have been given release dates, there are a total of six other films in the series that remain in some phase of development.  One of those developing projects is Van Helsing, which is being scripted by Eric Heisserer and Jon Spaihts and will serve as a big-screen vehicle for the eponymous monster-hunter who has been portrayed in various incarnations by Peter Cushing (Hammer’s Dracula series), Laurence Olivier (1979’s Dracula), Anthony Hopkins (Bram Stoker’s Dracula), Christopher Plummer (Dracula 2000) and Hugh Jackman, who embodied the character in Stephen Sommers' »

The Mummy Reboot Set Photos Have Tom Cruise Running for His Life

17 July 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, fans got their first look at The Mummy star Sofia Boutella with set photos as production continues. Filming has been under way since late April, when we got our first look at Tom Cruise and his co-star Annabelle Wallis. As production continues, we have even more photos of Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis who are seen springing into action.

The photos surfaced on various Twitter pages, featuring Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis going on the run from unseen enemies. There is very little we know about the scene itself, except both actors are seen running from someone, or something. It's certainly possible that both stars were running from Sofia Boutella's title character, but we don't know for certain.

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella}) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, »

Mummy Reboot Set Photos Reveal Sofia Boutella's Queen

10 July 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has been under way on Universal's The Mummy since April, but there is still much we don't know about this upcoming adventure. Tom Cruise is set to star, although little is known about his character, with Kingsman: The Secret Service breakout star Sofia Boutella playing the title character, marking the first time in franchise history a female has played The Mummy. Today we have the first photos from the set with Sofia Boutella in action.

The photos surfaced on various Twitter pages, giving us our first look at Sofia Boutella's costume as the title character, which come just a few months after our first look at Tom Cruise on the set. Unfortunately, we don't get a glimpse at any of the actress' co-stars, and it isn't exactly clear what is happening in this scene. One thing is for certain, though, her costume is certainly unique.

Batman Takes on Kaiju in First Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs Mutants Trailer

7 July 2016 7:13 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

If you've ever wanted to see Batman suit up in a giant robot (along with Green Arrow) to fight a city sized monster Voltron style, then it looks like the new Batman Unlimited direct-to-dvd movie, Mechs vs. Mutants, is exactly what you need.  Come inside to check out the first details and trailer on the upcoming animated adventure!

When Warner Bros. announced that Batman Unlimited would be bringing a new series of animated 'movies' for fans, they promised it would be a way to play around in the Batman universe and offer new ideas for young kids to enjoy that would be a little different.  Our first details and look at Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants (which comes to DVD on September 13th) is definitely something different.  

It's kind of a neat idea, though it feels like any other giant mecha/monster cartoon idea out there.  The biggest different here, »

Why the 'Mummy' reboot won't be as terrifying as Russell Crowe claims

9 May 2016 6:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

During a recent roundtable interview to promote his new buddy drama The Nice Guys co-starring Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe confirmed that he would be playing Dr. Jekyll in director Alex Kurtzman's upcoming reboot of The Mummy, and furthermore claimed that the big-budget film is -- contrary to perceptions in the industry -- "designed to scare the shit out of you." Sounds great! So why don't I believe it? Anyone who has been paying attention over the last couple of years knows that Universal is planning a Marvel Cinematic Universe-style crossover film series centering on the studio's classic monsters (Dracula, The Mummy, The Invisible Man and the Bride of Frankenstein, et al.), with The Mummy set to be first out of the gate next summer. As Drew and I agreed on last week's episode of my weekly horror chat series Nightmare Fuel (embedded above and below), this approach is troubling, »

Russell Crowe Confirms He Is Dr. Jekyll in Mummy Reboot

9 May 2016 1:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe was in early talks to play a "Jekyll-like role in Universal Pictures' The Mummy reboot. No details were given for this character, but we know that the story is set in modern day, and it will be the first full adventure in the studio's massive monster reboot franchise, set to hit theaters on July 9, 2017. While doing press for his new movie The Nice Guys, Russell Crowe confirmed that he is actually playing Dr. Jekyll.

Production started last month on Universal Pictures' Mummy reboot, with Tom Cruise is reportedly playing a special forces soldier who teams with an archaeologist (Annabelle Wallis), although those character details have yet to be confirmed. Sofia Boutella, who had a breakthrough role in last year's Kingsman: The Secret Service, is playing the Mummy, marking the first time in franchise history that a female has played the title character. »

Crowe: "Mummy" Reboot Is "Seriously Scary"

7 May 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This week came word that Russell Crowe is in talks to join the reboot of the currently shooting "The Mummy" franchise at Universal Pictures.

The Alex Kurtzman-directed film has been in production in the UK for a few weeks now with Tom Cruise in the lead role, and is the first in a proposed series of films sharing the same cinematic universe and featuring various classic monsters. Crowe is slated to play one such legendary monster - Dr. Henry Jekyll.

Speaking about the film whilst out promoting "The Nice Guys," Crowe says the new film is not the action-adventure style tone of the Brendan Fraser films, but rather a full on horror tale:

"This one is kind of more designed to seriously scare the s--- out of you. It's very interesting, what they're gonna do with that stuff. I've had a couple of chats about it with the director. »

Russell Crowe: ‘The Mummy’ Is ‘Designed to Seriously Scare the S— Out of You’

7 May 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Unlike Brendan Fraser’s trilogy, Universal’s “The Mummy” reboot is better categorized as a horror pic than an action-adventure, according to Russell Crowe.

Crowe confirmed that he’s joined Tom Cruise in the upcoming remake.

“I’m gonna do it,” Crowe said about the film at a press junket at the Beverly Hilton promoting his action comedy “The Nice Guys,” according to Collider.

Crowe portrays Dr. Henry Jekyll, a Royal Society fellow, opposite Cruise, who plays a Navy Seal hunting terrorists. “New Girl” star Jake Johnson and “The People v. O.J. Simpson’sCourtney B. Vance also recently boarded the movie.

When asked how the remake differs from Fraser’s films, Crowe said, “This one is kind of more designed to seriously scare the s— out of you.”

Tom Cruise's The Mummy Gets an Official Synopsis

6 May 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Dracula Untold is the official first movie in Universal's Monsters Universe, The Mummy is fully opening up this world that will include a number of iconic crossovers with some of the studio's most infamous ghouls. The remake is set to hit theaters in 2017. It stars Tom Cruise in the lead role, with Sofia Boutella playing the title monster, the first time in series history that this mummified zombie has ever been played by a woman. Universal Pictures has released the official synopsis, which gives us an idea of what we can expect.

Universal Monsters: The Next Big Cinematic Franchise?

5 May 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on whether the Universal Monsters will deliver the next big cinematic franchise…

You all remember The Mummy, right? Brendan Fraser doing his best Harrison Ford impression while Arnold Vosloo pranced around in a gold nappy trying to hide his broad South African brogue. Rather good, wasn’t it? You may be surprised to learn it came out in 1999. Some readers of this may not have been born then! The Mummy Returns followed in 2001 and then The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008 (but we don’t talk about that), with a Dwayne Johnson-starring The Scorpion King spin-off wedged in between. Had these films all came out a decade later, chances are they would have been much more of a cinematic universe, which of course are hot stuff these days thanks to Marvel’s successes in the superhero genre. Universal Pictures got into the act last year »
