  1. Somewhat based on an event in 1985 where a drug runner's plane crashed and a bear ate a load of cocaine. Directed by Elizabeth Banks. Stars Keri Russell, Margo Martindale, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kristofer Hivju, Kahyun Kim, Christian Convery, Brooklynn Prince and newcomer Scott Seiss. Released on 24 February. The trailer shows perhaps too many of the characters who get offed.
  2. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a552739/lovefilm-instant-to-become-amazon-prime-instant-video.html I used to be with Lovefilm, but left when they stopped renting games. At the time their streaming video service was nice as an added bonus on the subscription, but not something I'd have paid for on its own due to a poor library and apps only available on a very limted number of devices with rubbish update support. Not sure if this will tempt me away from Netflix, their original programming (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development) blow away Amazon's rather uninspiring efforts in that area and without the introductory offer it's actually more expensive than Netflix (only by about £7 but still). The main argument for that price is the Amazon Prime delivery which i wouldn't particularly want. Still, more competition is good for us customers, not sure I'd want to be subscribed to two streaming services, but if they significantly improve their library I might take a look eventually.

    They're making a movie out of a videogame. Derek Kolstad is adapting the script.
  4. Because the studio seem to be announcing so many films lately, some of which don't need a dedicated thread at this early stage, I thought a similar thread to the Pixar one would make sense. An overview of the films currently in production. Kung-Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom - May 2011 A sequel to the surprisingly enjoyable original with the original cast all set to return along with a bunch of new characters. Plot: Po (Jack Black), Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), Master Tigress (Angelina Jolie), and the rest of The Furious Five will join forces with The SoothSayer (Michelle Yeoh), Master Skunkman (James Woods), Master Croc (Jean-Claude Van Damme), and Master Thundering Rhino (Victor Garber) on their quest to defeat Shen (Gary Oldman), a powerful warrior and save Kung Fu from being destroyed. Charlie Kaufman has also rewritten the script. Puss in Boots - November 2011 This Shrek spin-off has been rumoured ever since the characters appearance in the second film. Finally, with the original franchise put to bed, he gets his own outing. Plot: The film follows Puss in Boots as he tells the tale of his early adventures. He teams with mastermind, Humpty Dumpty and the street-savvy Kitty to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs that could make Puss and his counterparts rich. The Croods - March 2012 Plot: Surviving in a volcanic world is tough enough, but caveman Grug (Cage) gets a rude awakening when an earthquake forces him to leave behind the only world he knows. With his family in tow, he ventures out into the volatile world in search of a new home. The situation becomes even more complicated when Grug's family - in particular his eldest daughter - become smitten with a nomad (Reynolds) they encounter on their dangerous journey. This quirky, imaginative stranger's search for 'tomorrow' is at odds with Grug's reliance on the traditions of yesterday. Directed by Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon), perhaps the studios biggest coup to date, this film will surely be one of the most anticipated due to the director's record and the involvement of Nic Cage and Ryan Reynolds on vocal duties. Madagascar 3 - Summer 2012 No real news other than it is being made. After the first two films does anybody really care? The Guardians of Childhood - November 2012 Based on the William Joyce books and starring Leonardo DiCaprio the film features a group of heroes from various childhood stories - Santa (Christopher Lee), the Easter Bunny (Seth Green), the Tooth Fairy (Miranda Cosgrove), Genie (Hank Azaria), the Sandman (Andy Samberg) and Jack Frost (Leonardo Dicaprio) - who join together in an adventure to stop Pitch the Boogeyman (George Lopez) from sending the world into "eternal darkness". How to Train Your Dragon 2 - 2013 A follow-up to the studios first truly exceptional film. This time DeBlois goes it alone as director but with the rest of the cast returning and plenty of stories from the books to tell, I have high hopes for this. The Pig Scrolls - 2013 After all the Olympian gods go missing, Sibyl has a premonition in which the sun god Apollo tells her to find "the talking pig". Sibyl then sets out looking for the talking pig, Gryllus. She finds him at Big Stavros's Kebab bar where he is forced to entertain customers. Together they set off for the temple at Delphi. Apollo informs Sibyl that she and Gryllus must find a goatherd boy living on top of a mountain. Once Sibyl and Gryllus find the goatherd, (who turns out to be the god Zeus) they set off once more for Apollo's temple at Delphi. It is there that Gryllus, the talking pig, must save the world from utter destruction. Additional: What the author had to say about his work: “I got the idea for The Pig Scrolls when I was rereading Homer's Odyssey and found myself more interested in some of the non-heroic characters in the background. Working on the book gave me a chance to revisit a world I have always loved—that of ancient mythology and history. And, of course, in order to research the character of Gryllus fully, I was forced to eat a huge number of pies.” The Pig Scrolls is set in Ancient Greece, and is about a pig named Gryllus. Gryllus, who was once a member of captain Odesseus’ famous crew, was transformed into a pig by the enchantress Circe. Gryllus, enjoying his quiet life in the woods is soon captured by local hunters when they realize he can talk, and is soon “rescued” by a junior prophetess in training (Sibyl). Sibyl informs Gryllus of a premonition showing her the end of the world. Gryllus believes her to have lost a couple of marbles and escapes, so Sibyl kidnaps him. On their journey to the temple in Delphi, they encounter monsters, gods, a strange goatherd and a scientist who has invented the awesome Atomos Device. Gryllus comes to realize that the entire universe is in the trotters of one talking pig, himself... Dinotrux - TBA Written by Chris Gall, the book takes place in a fictional prehistoric age, when the world was ruled by Dinotrux, creatures that were part trucks, part dinosaurs, with species like the Craneosauraus, Garbageadon and Tyrannosaurus Trux plowing and bulldozing their way across the terrain. Gil's All Fright Diner - TBA In the backwoods southern town of Rockwood, a vampire and a werewolf in a run-down old truck come across Gil's All Night Diner, a 24-hour restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Nearly run out of gas, they stop in at the diner only to discover it is the target of zombie attacks, hauntings, and occult activity. The manager of the diner, Loretta, offers them a job helping her out around the diner, and maybe help solve her zombie problem. In exchange, she'll give them money to help them on their way. They accept. Good Luck Trolls - TBA Yes, there will be an adaptation of the troll dolls that were popular in the '70s and '80s. Boo U - TBA Seth Rogen provides his vocal 'talents' in a film directed by the man responsible for the mediocre, Igor. Rogen will play a ghost who is forced to return to ghost school and improve his haunting skills. Truckers - TBA Yes, it is an adaptation of the Pratchett novels. Rllmuk Thread Imaginary Enemies - TBA The new project will be told from the point of view of the imaginary friends who had long been used as scapegoats by unscrupulous children looking for someone else to blame for their misdeeds. Eventually fed up, those imaginary people come looking for some payback when the kids are grown up. This could be the studios first CGI-live action hybrid. Trollhunters - TBA Produced by Guillermo del Toro. More info in the dedicated thread: here. Alma - TBA See next post.
  5. There were early indications of a sequel already, but now a third too, with Netflix reportedly paying $400m+ for them. Craig and Johnson both returning. https://deadline.com/2021/03/knives-out-two-sequels-netflix-400-million-plus-deal-daniel-craig-rian-johnson-ram-bergman-1234724575/
  6. It's got a release date of 22 July 2022, but not yet any information about the story Cast include Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Barbie Ferreira and Brandon Perea.
  7. How many other 'mukkers are fans of this film? For my money it is one of the greatest comedies of all time and easily the greatest film of John Hughes' career, In fact it is my joint favourite comedy of all time (the other being Blazing Saddles since I realise you were all dying to know). It's mainly remembered for the 'Those aren't pillows!' scene, but the entire film is filled to the brim with incredible moments and career-best performances from both Steve Martin and the much-missed John Candy. Fun Fact: It would have gotten a PG-13 in the USA, but the car rental scene pushed it up to an R rating. Good on Hughes and company for sticking to their guns and keeping it in as it's one of the funniest scenes in the film and the lack of swearing throughout the rest of the running time only makes it funnier. Candy manages to walk the fine-line of being lovable to the audience while allowing you to still empathise with Neal's frustrations and Martin might be playing an uptight and self-absorbed suit but you still sympathise with his quest to get home. If you want to see how easy such a concept could so easily go terribly wrong then just watch the terrible Due Date where they've taken the same concept except this time the Del substitute is an unlikable creepy weirdo and straight man is a self-satisfied abrasive arsehole. I can watch all manner of supposed tear-jerking films and remain stony-faced, but the end of this film always gets me pretending there's something in my eye (even with Neal's demonic looking children). http://www.myspace.com/video/todd/planes-trains-and-automobiles/26065689
  8. It's moving ahead, being written right now, and with Maverick back in full force, rather than the initial plan for him having a small role. It's going to explore how navy aviation is changing, with dogfighting all but gone and the rise of drones. Hopefully not a remake of Stealth. It's being written by Justin Marks, whose theatrical movie credits include Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and...that's it. He's got other stuff in pre-production, but what's released isn't a great record to judge him by. Given the videogame heavy nature of the forum, I'll just mention he's also going to potentially ruin Shadow of the Colossus and Dead Space.
  9. Jake Gyllenhaal, Dennis Quaid, Jabouki Young-White and Lucy Liu play a family of explorers whose differences threaten their latest adventure. I'm guessing they learn their differences actually help each other in the end. https://deadline.com/2022/09/strange-world-jake-gyllenhaal-disney-animated-film-1235113701/
  10. Martin McDonagh's next movie will be The Banshees Of Inisheer. He's teaming up with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson again. Inisheer is a real island off the west coast of Ireland (the shipwreck in the Father Ted opening credits is there).
  11. Apple's new take on A Christmas Carol, set in the present. A musical starring Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds and Octavia Spencer. This time from the perspective of the Ghost of Christmas Present (Ferrell). Each Christmas Eve the spirits visit a different "Scrooge" and this time it's Clint Briggs (Reynolds). Briggs turns the tables on Present, who ends up examining his own past, present and future. Just a teaser so far. Coming to Apple TV+ on 18th November.
  12. https://deadline.com/2022/04/streets-of-rage-film-adaptation-john-wick-creator-derek-kolstad-1235004975/ After the success of Sonic, Sega are doing Streets of Rage next, with Derek Kolstad writing.
  13. Next movie, after Lightyear, has been announced. Due 16 June 2023. Directed by Peter Sohn of The Good Dinosaur and the Partly Cloudy short. Set in a city where fire, air, land and water people live together. The man characters are Ember and Wade. Fire and water people, if it was too subtle for you. The water and fire pair are about to discover how much they have in common. No teaser or anything yet, just a title and concept picture.
  14. Is there a topic for this? Comes from the producers of Drive and Nightcrawler. Love the look of J.K. Simmons, he's criminally underused talent.
  15. To coincide with Criterions new site launch (you can now download their films for $5 and if you decide to buy the DVD as well you get the rental fee back) they have launched a new social networking site for film fans that also has free films to watch. The list is pretty small at the moment but it does have my all time favourite Japanese film - After Life. http://www.theauteurs.com/
  16. Chad Stahelski, Keanu and Lance Reddick are back, at least. Joining them will be Donnie Yen, Scott Adkins and Hiroyuki Sanada. Japanese-British singer Rina Sawayama will also debut. It's set to start filming in summer in France, Germany and Japan, with a release date of 27 May 2022.
  17. Welcome to the John Wick Cinematic Universe. John Wick producers have acquired a script for Ballerina, which they intend to place in the John Wick universe. As you probably guessed from the name and setting, it's a female led action flick. Said to be in the vein of La Femme Nikita, but more pulpy and stylised, like Tarantino or Vaughn. It's been written by a young newbie, taken on by Tony Stark Robert Downey Jr.'s company as an intern but is quickly rising due to apparent talent. Big fan of Shane Black, apparently. The movie is about a young woman, raised as an assassin, hunting other assassins who killed her family. Not written as a Wick spin-off, but Lionsgate beat off (fnar) WB and Universal to buy it with a view to expanding the Wick franchise.
  18. A new version of Hellraiser is coming to Hulu on 7 October. Directed by David Bruckner, of The Night House. A female Pinhead now, played by Jamie Clayton. Or maybe sexless, as I heard the novel Pinhead is modified to the extent that they are basically sexless. A very short teaser
  19. "In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theatre underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril." This trailer popped up before the film I was watching tonight and it's the first I'd seen of it. To me the trailer feels like Knives Out directed by Wes Anderson, and I really enjoyed it. Release date is 9th Sept in the UK, so not too far away either.
  20. Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey are back for the sequel to Enchanted. Maya Rudolph's a bad 'un. Coming to Disney+ on 18 November.
  21. I wasn't aware there was a sequel novel to The Shining, but this is a movie version of it. It follows Danny Torrance, now in his 40s, and suffering anger and alcohol issues. And psychic powers. Akiva Goldsman originally wrote a script, but it's being rewritten and directed by Mike Flanagan, director of Oculus and the recent Netflix Gerald's Game.
  22. Someone decided that the flop R.I.P.D. needed a prequel. It's being made by Universal 1440, which suggests it's a straight home release, not cinemas. Stars Jeffrey Donovan.
  23. Jake Schreier (Robot & Frank, Kidding) is set to direct Thunderbolts. I wasn't familiar, but it seems to be Marvel's version of Suicide Squad, with a team of villains tasked with government missions. No word on who may be in the team, but I'm sure everyone will have ideas. Zemo and US Agent have got to be there though, right? https://deadline.com/2022/06/marvels-thunderbolts-jake-schreier-1235041619/
  24. Talks are underway for another Naked Gun. The Ed Helms one never happened. This would star Liam Neeson, likely as the son of Frank Drebin rather than stepping into Drebin's shoes. It's got the writers and director of the recent Chip 'n Dale movie attached. https://deadline.com/2022/10/naked-gun-paramount-liam-neeson-lonely-islands-akiva-schaffer-1235144065/
  25. Upcoming Cronenberg move, but not a remake of his 1970 movie of the same name. Stars Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart.
