17 January 2017 12:49 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Now, fear not! 2017 is here to save the day and it is absolutely packed full of all your favourite costumed crime-fighters. From Wall crawlers, to demigods, to eccentric spies, this year has it all. So, sit back, relax and let your friendly neighbourhood Thn talk you through what 2017 has in store. Check out our Comic Book Movie Preview!

1. The Lego Batman Movie

First up is the highly anticipated Lego Movie spin-off, focusing on Will Arnett’s hilariously parodied version of Batman. While the idea was initially met with skepticism, trailers have so far indicated that this could be one of the caped crusaders greatest cinematic outings yet.

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘La La Land’ Ride Oscar Wave on Soft Holiday Weekend

15 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As far as the box office is concerned, the Martin Luther King holiday weekend might better be dubbed Memorial Day, as six new wide releases are weak or dying. Despite a wide array of product which should have boosted totals, this weekend looks to be down 19 per cent from last year.

On the other hand, Oscar contenders “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox) and “La La Land”(Lionsgate) continued to surf cresting audience enthusiasm to place first and second for the three day weekend.

School vacation Monday results may boost Universal’s “Sing” and possibly Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” to higher positions. Animated musical “Sing” is holding well, with a 33 per cent drop. “Rogue One,” though now the top-grossing 2016 domestic release, is falling far faster than juggernaut “Force Awakens” a year ago.

The Top Ten

Sherlock series 4 episode 3 review: The Final Problem

13 January 2017 9:22 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jan 15, 2017

Sherlock series 4 bows out on an ultra-tense, heightened episode that unearths Holmes family secrets. Spoilers ahead…

4.3 The Final Problem

This review contains spoilers.

In Thomas HarrisThe Silence Of The Lambs, Hannibal Lecter tells Clarice Starling “Nothing happened to me […] I happened. You can’t reduce me to a set of influences.” It’s an elegant, invincible line, one that waves away the tricks of their trades as psychiatrist and FBI agent, and paints Lecter as pure evil.

Twenty-five years later, Harris scrapped all that to explain in Hannibal Rising that Lecter is what he is because Nazis ate his sister. »

The Crystal Maze: back for a full series with Richard Ayoade presenting

Louisa Mellor Jan 13, 2017

Actor-director Richard Ayoade will present a 20-episode new series of The Crystal Maze for Channel 4, airing later this year...

It's official. The Crystal Maze will be returning to Channel 4 for a full, twenty-episode series including a handful of charity celebrity specials later this year.

The series was commissioned following the overwhelmingly positive response to last year's Stand Up To Cancer celebrity edition (and no doubt, the ongoing success of the ace Crystal Maze Experience in London and soon, Manchester).

Presenting this time around will be new Maze Master Richard Ayoade, confirmed to be taking over from Stephen Merchant. »

Nintendo Switch: what we’ve learned from its big unveiling

Ryan Lambie Jan 13, 2017

The successor to the Wii U is mere weeks away. Here’s what we’ve learned from Nintendo Switch’s official unveiling...

Late last year, Nintendo ended month after month of speculation with a single video. Through the medium of happy, smiling models pressing buttons and staring at a TV screen, the Japanese giant announced the Nintendo Switch - formerly known under its codename Nx, and the successor to the likeable yet sadly obscure Wii U.

Sherlock actor Sian Brooke on the imperative of keeping her series four identity a secret…

Warning: contains spoilers for Sherlock The Lying Detective

If you’ve seen The Lying Detective—and you’d better have if you’re reading this and don’t want anything spoiled for you—then you know who Sian Brooke plays in Sherlock series 4: Sherlock and Mycroft’s secret sister Eurus (official spelling tbc).

To keep that under wraps, even Brooke didn’t know what she was auditioning for at first. As she told the audience at a BFI preview screening of the series four finale, »

Taboo episode 2 review

Taboo looks the part, but it needs to do more with its lead to prove itself any more than a colonial Gothic pastiche...

Taboo episode 2 review

See related  The rise and fall of Carolco 9 potentially great movie sequels teased but never made Exclusive: why Disney never made Tangled 2 James Cameron and his unmade films Andrew Stanton teases unmade John Carter sequels The unmade films of Quentin Tarantino The Justice League movie that never was

This review contains spoilers.

Do you know something? Stabbed in the gut as he is, I think James Keziah Delaney might just make it. We are, after all, only on episode two of eight. If Tom Hardy’s character bled to death on a cobbled street at this stage in proceedings, everybody else on Taboo would have to pack up and go home. Jonathan Pryce’s agent would need to score him another »

Never mind the Skywalkers - to stand on its own two feet, Star Wars: Episode VIII needs to make a break with the past, Ryan argues...

Jj Abrams laid solid foundations, now it’s up to Rian Johnson to start building the house. In many respects, Johnson, the director of such films as Brick and Looper, has an even tougher job than Abrams did with 2015‘s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the »

Newswire: J.J. Abrams is done with reboots

9 January 2017 3:59 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In a disappointing bit of news for all of the once-beloved sci-fi franchises out there that haven’t felt the loving embrace of a big-budget revival, J.J. Abrams recently told People that he’s getting out of the reboot game. He’ll still be making movies, but he no longer has “any desire” to resurrect the things he once loved as a kid the way he did for Star Trek and Star Wars. That means we’ll never get to see Abrams put his fresh-yet-reverent spin on stuff like Flight Of The Navigator, The Last Starfighter, Zardoz, John Carter, Star Trek again, that Exosquad cartoon, Enemy Mine, and maybe Star Trek a third time.

Regarding his history of reboots, Abrams says he’s “done enough of that,” and that he’s now “more excited about working on things that are original ideas that perhaps one day someone else will ...

Lucasfilm issues statement on 'digital' Carrie Fisher

5 January 2017 2:02 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 14, 2017

Lucasfilm rules out digitally recreating Carrie Fisher's work in future Star Wars movies.

This should clear a few things up. Lucasfilm has posted an official statement on StarWars.com regarding the future of Leia in the Star Wars movies, and specifically rumours that it was planning to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher in future movies. The statement rules that out very clearly. It reads:

Netflix's Lemony Snicket adapation, A Series Of Unfortunate Events, is faithful, funny, imaginative and out now...

Question; when is an adaptation of a wildly popular and iconic children’s book series a risk? Answer; when the subject of the adaptation is A Series Of Unfortunate Events.
