10 Times Doctor Who Jumped The Shark (And Nuked The Fridge)

22 January 2015 7:28 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

There are many, many types of Doctor Who fans. These types run the gamut from those who praise everything in the programme, happy so long as there are new episodes to watch, to others who use every creative decision as an excuse for predicting the end has come and the chop cannot surely be far away. This last group of fans claims that Doctor Who has “jumped the shark” each time something happens that they can’t personally stomach. The Master is a woman? Moffat has jumped the shark!

Yet this use of “jumped the shark” isn’t technically correct (sorry, fellow fans). The term refers to a moment in Happy Days when the leather-wearing Fonz ski-jumps over a literal shark (it’s a truly dire episode). This moment is accepted by many as marking the beginning of a distinct fall in quality and the long, lingering end for the series. »

David Koepp interview: Mortdecai, Jurassic Park, Indy 4

22 January 2015 7:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mortdecai director David Koepp chats to us about the film, along with Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Mission: Impossible & more.

This piece contains spoilers for Snake Eyes and Mission: Impossible (the first one)

David Koepp has a rather solid CV as a director, including Secret Window with Johnny Depp, the underrated ghost story Stir Of Echoes, and the really fun Joseph Gordon-Levitt bike messenger action film Premium Rush. But as a screenwriter, he’s worked on some of the biggest films of the last 25 years – Jurassic Park and its sequel, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Angels and Demons, Mission: Impossible, and Spider-Man.

He’s also had a hand in other notable Hollywood hits (and flops) including Carlito’s Way, The Shadow, Snake Eyes, Zathura, Panic Room, Death Becomes Her, and many, many more. He’s had a fascinating career.

His latest directorial effort is Mortdecai, a »

'Mortdecai' Review: Johnny Depp Is Very Silly Indeed

22 January 2015 4:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The ad campaign for "Mortdecai," the new Johnny Depp comic caper film, is so befuddling, both opaque and overbearing, that a recent Vulture article spent several hundred words trying to decode what, exactly, the movie was and why the powers that be behind said movie were content with selling the project based on large photos of the very handsome cast (also included: Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Munn, Ewan McGregor) sporting cartoonish mustaches. This is a shame, because the movie is an undeniably charming, frothy affair, a zippy, inventive, frequently funny international romp that recalls both the "Pink Panther" and "Austin Powers" franchises, while somehow being considerably stranger than either.

Depp plays the title character, a kind of bone-headed aristocratic art dealer who trades in stolen antiquities. At the beginning of the movie, he's trying to screw over some Chinese gangsters, since he's in deep debt with the British government and his »

The Blunt Reason Beverly Hills Cop 4 Hasn't Happened, According To Eddie Murphy

15 January 2015 10:00 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Beverly Hills Cop 4 is one of those mythical sequels that existed in the same rarefied air once inhabited by the likes of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull and Live Free Or Die Hard, waiting around for decades for rumor to become reality. That all changed when its prospects for production ramped up last year, with both a release date and a director attached to the project. At least, that what we were lead to believe before Eddie Murphy gave an update on the status of the long-awaited sequel. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Eddie Murphy was asked point blank about whether Beverly Hills Cop 4 was currently filming. After all, the film is technically scheduled to be released on March 25th, 2016; and it'd have to be in production within the near future to make that date. Long story short, it looks like that release »

Seth Grahame-Smith Says Beetlejuice 2 Script Is Designed To Let Michael Keaton Return

12 January 2015 9:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that 27 years have lapsed between its predecessor, Beetlejuice 2 will no doubt go down as one of cinema’s long-gestating sequels, joining the likes of Tron: Legacy, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But recently, we’ve seen mounting evidence that director Tim Burton is ready to begin filming the supernatural follow-up in earnest.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, that sequel will be penned by Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘ writer Seth Grahame-Smith, who spoke recently to the publication and revealed that the script has been designed to allow star Michael Keaton to return as the ghost with the most. In the interview, Grahame-Smith touched upon the potential of a full reboot, but opted against the casting of new characters in fear that it would dilute the magic of the character.

As a matter of fact, this perspective coincides with »

14 movie sequels stuck in development hell

12 January 2015 3:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Twins sequel Triplets gets delayed, here are other big name sequels struggling to get going - from Top Gun 2 to Die Hard 6...

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.

With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)

Triplets

What is it?

The long-belated sequel to Arnold Schwarzenegger-Danny DeVito comedy Twins, with the wheeze this time being Eddie Murphy reportedly joining the cast as »

'Batkid Begins' Gets Rare Poster from Drew Struzan

9 January 2015 3:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Legendary movie poster artist Drew Struzan has come out of retirement to create an original one-sheet for the upcoming documentary Batkid Begins. He is best known for creating memorable posters for such movies as Star Wars, Back to The Future and Raiders of the Lost Ark. This latest painting depicts cancer survivor Miles Scott, who has become somewhat of a legend himself.

In 2013, Miles Scott captured the world's attention and heart when he became a mini-Batman to save San Francisco from some of DC Comics baddest villains. Director Dana Nachman captured the whole thing on camera, creating the documentary Batkid Begins. The film chronicles the boy's fight against Leukemia, and how the Make-a-Wish foundation transformed his life forever.

Drew Struzan officially announced his retirement in 2008 after creating the poster for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. He has come out of retirement one other time since then, »
