It took 20 years for Roland Emmerich to deliver a sequel to Independence Day, a film that’s largely responsible for the modern summer blockbuster season. Unfortunately, it looks like most audiences didn’t think it was worth the wait. As predicted in recent weeks, Resurgence crash-landed in theaters with an underwhelming opening weekend that was no match for Pixar’s Finding Dory.
It’s become impossible to talk about Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters without acknowledging the unsavory reactions from fans of the original who have declared the reboot cinema non grata (to say the least). It’s also been suggested that perhaps some words of support from the original cast members might help soothe the aggressive fanbase, that if their so-called childhood heroes give Feig’s film the stamp of approval (as if their willingness to cameo in the film wasn’t endorsement enough), maybe the anti-reboot fan contingent would settle down and come to accept a crew of female Ghostbusters. That’s not the case, as OG Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd shared his positive thoughts on Feig’s reboot, inspiring a slew of predictably angry reactions.
The CGI in Jon Favreau’s adaptation of The Jungle Book looks incredible — though it is a little strange to see the animals actually speak, as you can in the first clip from Disney’s epic new adventure. The sneak peek introduces us to the fearsome and ferocious tiger Shere Khan, voiced by Idris Elba, and while it’ll take some adjusting to hear these famous voices coming out of the mouths of gorgeous animals, Elba is inarguably the perfect voice for Khan.
It’s kind of incredible that Danny McBride is capable of essentially playing variations on the same obnoxious, narcissistic and myopic character without audiences ever growing tired of his schtick. Unlike similarly repetitive character actors, McBride continues to both amaze and amuse with his crassly inappropriate and delightfully dumb humor, and Vice Principals is no exception. HBO’s latest miniseries is a more than worthy successor to Eastbound and Down, reuniting McBride with directors Jody Hill and David Gordon Green for another devious comedy — this time set in the world of high school administration.
Matthew Vaughn’s sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service is shaping up to be one of our most anticipated films of 2017: The director has begun assembling a pretty cool cast, with Julianne Moore as Kingsman 2's main villain opposite returning star Taron Egerton. While we wait to find out if (and how) Colin Firth will return, the film is looking to secure another great addition, with Halle Berry in talks to play a key role.
Studios have been trying to replicate the success of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s The LEGO Movie, with films based on Play-Doh, Minecraft, Playmobil and more in the works. And while we’ve yet to see exactly how these attempts will pan out, we can add another one to the pile as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have signed on to produce a movie based on the Where’s Waldo? series of books.
A few years ago, former Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul tweeted that playing Eddie Dean in an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower was a “huge” dream of his. It looks like he might get his wish, as the actor is rumored for the role of Eddie in Nikolaj Arcel’s film based on the epic fantasy book series. Although the casting remains a rumor (for now) Paul’s tweets are really getting our hopes up.
In what will probably result in a much more amusing film than the last time the two appeared on screen together, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman are reuniting for a new comedy titled Significant Other. Bateman will direct, produce and co-star in the upcoming film with Aniston, who will also serve as executive producer. Based on the strength of Bateman’s directorial debut, Bad Words, we can at least take comfort knowing that this has to be better than The Switch, right?
Ever since Warner Bros. revealed that first promo image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman at Comic-Con a couple of years ago, we’ve been anxiously waiting for our chance to see her on the big screen. The trailers have only gotten us more excited, as Gadot’s superhero looks to be one of the most interesting things about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And although she’s making her debut in a movie about two other iconic superheroes, Gadot wants fans to know that Wonder Woman isn’t there to support those guys or service their story.
We’ve yet to witness a genuinely good film adaptation of a video game, though your mileage may vary when it comes to Silent Hill, the only arguably decent attempt thus far. And while we wait to see what Justin Kurzel and Michael Fassbender deliver with the promising adaptation of Assassin’s Creed, another popular game is set to make the leap to the big screen.
Is this the first cast photo from the upcoming Power Rangers movie, or is this promoting the new juniors line in the latest Macy’s catalogue? The only proof we have of the former (aside from its debut in Entertainment Weekly) is the absence of a caption telling us how to get Trini’s cool grunge look.
A few weeks back, Divergent series director Robert Schwentke abruptly dropped out of the final sequel, Ascendant, a little over a month before the latest installment hits theaters. With Allegiant on the horizon and one more Divergent sequel to go, Lionsgate has quickly found Schwentke’s replacement in Age of Adaline director Lee Toland Krieger.
