The Lego Movie was a film that rubbed me the wrong way. This was mainly because the style of Chris Miller and Phil Lord involves a lot of winking at the camera and commenting about how they are in a movie. That jokes gets old very quickly. The same can be said for this year's 22 Jump Street. One thing I did not pick up on during the film was the lack of female characters and perspective. Well, for those people that were bothered, the forthcoming The Lego Movie 2 will feature a larger female presence. Chris Miller tells The BBC: I don't want to give spoilers but there will be more female characters and more female stuff. I am all for gender equality in films and, well, life in general. Based on that quote, I do not know if this what people like me are looking for. Granted, I do »

Mark Wahlberg is teaming up once more with his Lone Survivor director Peter Berg for a big screen remake of a classic 70s TV show. A modern update on The Six Million Dollar Man, the series which starred Lee Majors as former astronaut Steve Austin, this time around the stakes are being raised. And by stakes, we mean it’s now landed a flashier, Tony Stark-esque new title – The Six Billion Dollar Man.
The original, for those unfamiliar with it, depicted the life of Austin after he suffers a near-fatal plane crash, and subsequently is fitted with a full order of bionic limbs and told to go and do secret agent-y stuff for the government.
The Weinstein Company subsidiary Dimension Films are handling the adaptation, and are aiming to commence shooting next year in time for a 2016 release. This will liven up Wahlberg’s already-packed slate. He’s re-teaming with »
