However, if you want to download the movie earlier, the Digital HD release date is August 25. Go for both?

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
Coming to the expanded Marvel Universe is the new title "Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur," from co-writers Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare, and artist Natacha Bustos, which pairs Jack Kirby's original creation, the red Tyrannosaurus Rex (Devil Dinosaur) with teenager Lunella Lafayette, a character described by Reeder as a "female Inspector Gadget - only this time, she also knows what she’s doing." Hoping to attract readers of all ages, the comics creators tell Entertainment Weekly: "[Editor] Mark [Paniccia] and I were talking about how whenever people come in with young kids, or even just for Mark’s own kids, we don’t have that many publications »

There comes a time to turn away from the horrors of the world and retreat underneath the soft, comforting duvet of nostalgia. That time is Friday. That metaphorical duvet is below.
Here are fifty of the best kids’ TV theme songs (spread over two pages and in arbitrary order) of the 1980s. Some, like Alan Hawkshaw’s distinctive Grange Hill intro, are unarguable classics of the era, while others, like Mike Harding's Count Duckula, only started in the late-eighties and spent the rest of their run in the next decade.
Obviously, there being only 50 on this list, we may have missed out your favourite (deliberately or otherwise). Let us know if so, but remember that links may take a while to appear in the comments thread because »

"The fate of the entire galaxy rests in the hands of our greatest, most beloved, heroes..."
Fresh on the tail of the latest casting news for Cbbc's new Danger Mouse series (Lena Headey and John Oliver are the latest to join up) comes this first-look teaser trailer of the revamped show.
The action starts following a Star Wars episode VII parody ("Penfold, we're home!"), and it's looking good. From what little we see of them, Alexander Armstrong and Kevin Eldon are great choices for the roles of Dm and Penfold, the original theme song is intact, and so, by the looks of this brief teaser, is the sense of humour.
See what you think below:
Danger Mouse comes to Cbbc in the UK and Netflix (where the original series »
While I never could have predicted this news story, I'm very glad to be passing it on - Lena Headey (Game Of Thrones' Cersei Lannister) and John Oliver (The Daily Show's hilarious co-host, formerly seen on Community) have both signed up for roles in the upcoming Danger Mouse reboot.
Lena Headey will play Us Secret Agent Jeopardy Mouse, “a super-proficient American, female version of Danger Mouse” who has been described as “the unseen star of the Us Secret Service" who completes her missions “with the minimum of fuss.”
Said Headey of the role: “I wanted to do [Danger Mouse] because it was pure nostalgia for me. I have children now and it’s just a treat to be involved in something that you loved as a kid and be able to share it. »

When Gerry Anderson saw the live-action film of Thunderbirds a decade ago, he described it as the “biggest load of crap I have ever seen in my life”. Alas, the Thunderbirds co-creator didn’t live to see ITV’s update, but I like to think he would have been kinder to its small-screen reboot.

Inspector Gadget's finest hours really lie in the cartoon series of the 1980s. The subsequent late 1990s live action movie cast Matthew Broderick and Rupert Everett, and whilst the film was a decent box office hit, the movie wasn't much cop. At all. A direct to DVD sequel then followed a few years later, which cast French Stewart in the lead role, before Disney seemed to (thankfully) lose interest.
Until now, at least. Dan Lin, one of the producers of The Lego Movie, is bringing Inspector Gadget back to the big screen, and Disney is backing the project. It'll be a live action film again, although at this stage we don't know who is writing it, who is directing it, or who is set to play Inspector Gadget. Er, so we've »
Netflix was responsible for reviving Arrested Development and The Killing, and it gave us new versions of Richie Rich and Inspector Gadget. Now it could resurrect yet another old show: Full House. The streaming service is reportedly nearing a deal for Fuller House, a continuation of the ABC comedy which ran for 8 seasons from […]

Believe it or not, Inspector Gadget is over 30 years old at this point — he first came into being as an animated show from the mid-’80s. But older doesn’t always mean wiser, and that goes double in the case of this bionic detective. In the first trailer for Netflix’s new Inspector Gadget series, he proves […]

The first trailer has arrived for the new "Inspector Gadget" CG animated series that will hit Netflix on Friday this week. All twenty-six episodes will be available on the streaming service from Friday and the clip indicates the show is going much more kiddie than the original 1980s animated series. In the new show, Dr. Claw has reactivated his global crime syndicate Mad and Inspector Gadget must stop him with the help of his niece Penny and her dog Brain.

With Community down three cast members, the theme song’s closing words (“one by one they all just fade away”) have never been more appropriate. Nonetheless, the start of Season 6 – its first on the Yahoo Screen streaming service – is a promising one.
The remainder of the Greendale 7 quickly fill their current vacancies with two distinct personalities — one of whom looks a lot like the school’s former head of It, and the other looking a heck of a lot like that guy from The Cape.

Netflix has announced some big news about its slate of upcoming shows, as well as taking another big step in their outward expansion, having struck a deal to purchase True Detective director Cary Fukanaga’s new film.
In terms of its new show line-up, four big new series will get their debut through the summer: sci-fi show Between will air in May of this year, followed swiftly by the double-whammy of Sense8, the new show from The Matrix creators Lana and Andy Wachowski and Babylon 5’s J. Michael Straczynski, and the hugely-anticipated third season of Orange Is the New Black in June.
Then, on July 17th, the streaming service will unveil Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the prequel mini-series to the cult 2001 film of the same name, whose stellar cast includes Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Chris Pine, Jason Schwartzman, »

Netflix is adding another 80s classic as a new reboot, Inspector Gadget. Yes, the fun cyborg is coming with a whole new lease on life. Dhx is bring back him, his niece Penny who is now older and her smart dog Brain in CGI. March is their currently planned released date where Mr. Claw and others will become quickly targeted again by Inspector. You can check out their official trailer down below.
I am so glad to see how this show will go. I hope that it will be as delightful and fun for kids to watch. If they do it as well as Garfield was for Cartoon Network. If they can keep it as true as that, then I think they will find their 22 episodes season to be successful. The real challenge will be how their viewers will feel about the more modern take of classic show.

New Projects is a weekly round up of movies and TV shows recently announced and currently in development for the near future.
To be honest, I was a little skeptical of the news last week that Neill Blomkamp would be helming an Alien remake. Elysium was a bust, the jury is still out on Chappie, I personally think District 9 is a little overrated, and just how many Alien remakes, sequels, prequels, and video game spin-offs do we even need? But after speaking with EW, Blomkamp confirmed that Ripley is supposed to appear in his new movie, and that Sigourney Weaver, after working with him on Chappie, is on board to reprise her iconic role.
Over the years, I came up with a story for a film in that universe that I wanted to make. And then when I talked to her about her experience making those films and what »
