A little earlier today, we heard about plans for a possible Ghostbusters spinoff which would star Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: Retaliation). However, another leaked set of emails - this time between Sony boss Amy Pascal and Bridesmaids helmer Paul Feig - reveal a ton of new details about the planned reboot featuring a female team of Ghostbusters. According to Vulture, humans know nothing about ghosts in this world because they haven't made their presence felt as of yet. It's when the movie's villain (a convicted murderer the director envisions being played by Peter Dinklage) is turned into a ghost after his electric chair execution is hit by what they call "a supercharged electrical storm" that things change because he gains the ability to raise an army of ghosts, many of whom could be well-known historical "villains". As you might imagine, this leads to »

The ‘Merc with a Mouth’ is a disfigured and mentally unstable anti-hero who underwent military experiments in X-men Origins: Wolverine in an attempt to replicate Wolverine’s mutant healing factor. Known for being acerbically talkative with the fourth wall, Deadpool will hopefully showcase Reynold’s comedic timing.

It’s been a big few weeks of trailers with our first looks at Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jurassic World dropping at our feet last week, and now we have Terminator: Genisys from Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World).
Check out the trailer below:
Here’s the one-sheet for the movie:
There’s no official synopsis yet, but the movie is set in an alternate timeline in which the T-800 was sent back to raise Sarah Conner as a child, who then teams up with Kyle Reese who was sent back to protect her from a different Terminator sent back by Skynet. To say Terminator: Genisys needs to work hard to win back the naysayers is an understatement. Has this trailer done enough?

“I’ll be back.” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior will make good on that promise next summer when Paramount unleashes Terminator: Genisys to theaters. New takes on familiar characters like Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be featured in the film, with Arnold once again playing a durable T-800. Ahead of the movie’s trailer debut this Thursday, a new face-dissolving motion poster has been released.
Released on TerminatorMovie.com, the motion poster (see below) features a Terminator endoskeleton’s head dissolving into what could be the sands of time. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for the release of the first Terminator: Genisys trailer on Thursday. In the meantime, we have the official plot details of the new Terminator film from the cover story that appeared in an earlier issue of EW:

“We worked on the final sequence in the film which is the Hera Temple and Hera Temple Destruction Sequence,” states Method Studios Visual Effects Supervisor Doug Bloom when discussing the work contributed to Hercules (2014) which stars Dwayne Johnson (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as the Greek mythological figure who may be more human than god. “When we started John Bruno [Visual Effects Supervisor] asked if we could do a 14 second long shot of the destruction as realistically as it could be. We took that one long simulation, cut it, rendered it with the various approved camera angles, put it into the edit to get a sense of the timing, and once we had that we gave that back to the effects artists as »

2013’s Now You See Me was one of those quiet box office successes that kind of flew under the radar. The magician-centric heist picture didn’t garner great reviews, but it opened to a solid $29.3 million and went on to gross $351.7 million worldwide. With an international hit on its hands, Lionsgate/Summit unsurprisingly put the wheels in motion for a sequel. G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu takes over from previous helmer Louis Leterrier this time around with the entire main cast returning plus Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, and Jay Chou (The Green Hornet). And now that filming is set to get underway soon, star Mark Ruffalo has revealed the official Now You See Me 2 title: Now You See Me: The Second Act. More after the jump. With pre-production on the sequel now underway, Ruffalo opted to break the news of the Now You See Me 2 »

Now You See Me didn't get a lot of attention but certainly made enough at a box office to garner a sequel when it grossed over $350 million worldwide; there is an audience for this somewhere it seems. Director Jon Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) takes over duties this time and the entire cast with the exception of Isla Fisher is returning. We also get to welcome new magical faces Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, and Jay Chou. Mark Ruffalo took to Instagram today to reveal the upcoming »

Channing Tatum has expressed his desire to get behind the camera lately, and at one point toyed with the idea of directing "Magic Mike: Xxl." But making such a big leap was daunting and he expressed a desire to make a smaller film first. And while he's not helming the stripper dramedy sequel, he is making that smaller movie. Tatum and his pal Reid Carolin will co-direct an adaptation of Matthew Quick's "Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock." The book from the "Silver Linings Playbook" author follows "a troubled high schooler who plans to kill his best friend and then himself." James Ponsoldt ("Smashed") penned a previous draft of the script, but a new writer is being sought. Tatum might star in the movie too, but nothing is locked down yet. [THR] “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” made $375 million worldwide in 2013, so where’s that sequel on the release date docket? Well, there’s »

From Stephen Sommers to Jon M. Chu to...Martin Campbell? That may be the progression for the G.I. Joe franchise as a source claims the Casino Royale and Goldeneye director is the studio's top choice to helm the sequel to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Yes, Campbell is also responsible for Green Lantern, but that still makes him the most talented director associated with this franchise. G.I. Joe: Retaliation raised a lot of eyebrows when it suddenly moved it's release date almost a full year just »

Although both movies drew highly negative reviews, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation both pulled in over $300 million apiece for Paramount, making a third installment of the action-adventure franchise all but inevitable. We learned way back in July that Lethal Weapon 4 scribe Jonathan Lemkin had been tasked with scripting G.I. Joe 3, and that Jon M. Chu would not be returning to direct, but outside of that, it’s been radio silence on the threequel. Now, however, there are whispers around the interwebs that Paramount has singled out a replacement for Chu: Casino Royale director Martin Campbell.
According to Schmoes Know, which claims to have learned of the helmer’s possible involvement via the same shadowy but “reliable” source that (rightly) revealed that Michael B. Jordan would be in the Fantastic Four reboot, Campbell is the studio’s top choice and has just entered talks. »

According to Schmoes Know, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers: Age of Extinction) is looking at director Martin Campbell to take over the reins of G.I. Joe 3 following the departure of G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu.
Campbell hasn’t directed a film since 2011’s Green Lantern, while his previous credits include No Escape, GoldenEye, The Legend of Zorro, Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness. It’s unknown whether Cambell has any interest in the G.I. Joe gig, or if there’s even any truth to the report in the first place…

Jon M. Chu, the director of the Step Up films and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, is set to develop a new movie project called Can’t Touch This. As most of you know, that is the name of a popular song written by M.C. Hammer. The film is a high school dance comedy that will be set in the 1990s. Having grown up as a teenager in the '90s, the thought of a dance movie called Can’t Touch This made me laugh. I’m glad to hear that it’s going to be a comedy because hard to imagine a movie with a title like that could be taken seriously, unless they tackle it like films such as Dazed and Confused or American Graffiti. Those both had a good balance of drama and comedy.
Chu is definitely the best man for the job. This seems to fit in with »

“The Machinist” director Brad Anderson has signed up to helm Sony’s “Bourne-esque spy tale” (aren’t they all?) “Shadow Run,” according to Deadline. The script, written by “Cliffhanger” writer Joe Gazzam, was the subject a frenzied bidding war earlier this year and is being kept under tight wraps with no plot details revealed yet. Truth be told, an action thriller isn’t too much of a stretch for Anderson’s sensibilities, since his filmography has trended towards genre fare with films like “Session 9” and “Vanishing on 7th Street.” If anything, at least “Shadow Run” has a bigger potential to actually reach audiences, as opposed to his latest output, “Stonehearst Asylum,” which saw release last month unbeknownst to anyone. Here’s hoping the next one washes away the stink of Anderson’s Halle Berry-starring “The Call.” Jon M. Chu, who has made dance ("Step Up 2: The Streets »

Chu has had much success from the teen-dance movie genre having directed fan favourites Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D and Can’t Touch This (named after the classic Mc Hammer song) will seem him depart from action movies like G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Chu has also just wrapped on a big screen adaptation of Jem and the Hollograms and recently opened up Chu Studios, which saw him produce dance webseries The Lxd.
Storyline for Can’t Touch This is being kept under wraps at the moment, but the script is being penned by Annie Mebane and Steve Basilone (Community) who have also worked on retro comedy The Goldbergs for ABC. It is »

Plot specifics are under wraps, but it has been described as "'Safe House' on a plane". Joe Gazzam penned the script. [Source: Variety]
Filmmaker Patty Jenkins ("Monster," "The Killing") has closed a deal to direct a remake of the 2011 Norwegian action comedy "Jackpot" at Focus Features. David Callaham ("Godzilla") is penning the script based on a story by "Headhunters" novelist Jo Nesbo. »

Exclusive: Jem and the Holograms and G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer Jon M. Chu is going old school. He and producing partner Hieu Ho have sold to Focus Features new project Can’t Touch This, a high school dance comedy set in the golden era of the 1990s.
The teen dance milieu has been a fruitful one for Chu, who launched his career with fan favorite sequels Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D and has quickly become one of Hollywood’s in-demand studio directors. Storyline is being kept under wraps, although the title alone evokes a part of the decade that was too legit to quit. Chu and Ho originated the idea then tapped Happy Endings and Community writers Annie Mebane and Steve Basilone to script. Mebane and Basilone know their way around retro comedies; they’re producers on ABC’s ’80s-set The Goldbergs.

When Foxcatcher arrives in theaters this weekend — the dark, true-life drama about the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) — it may leave you with a looming question, “Wait, is that really Channing Tatum?” No, not just because Tatum — like his co-star Steve Carell (who plays eccentric millionaire and Schultz’s murderer, John du Pont) — is virtually unrecognizable due to the film’s stunning physical transformations. It’s because Tatum, as the tortured Olympic wrestler (and Dave’s brother) Mark Schultz, reaches staggering new heights as an actor.
The star of Step Up, White House Down, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike, among others, not only turns out one of this year’s most harrowing performances, but one of the very best. Even Tatum’s biggest naysayers (yes, they exist) will be blown away by the actor’s emotionally and physically daunting work in Foxcatcher. »
