  1. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/stranger-things-director-helm-sci-fi-thriller-malignant-at-fox-1027341 Fox are making a movie of the graphic novel Malignant Man, by James Wan and Michael Alan Nelson. It's to be directed by relative newcomer Rebecca Thomas. The story is about Alex Gates, a man with terminal cancer. But then it's discovered the tumor is actually an alien parasite and has given him powers. Naturally, he goes off to fight some bad dudes.
  2. Taraji P. Henson stars in an action thriller about a hitwoman working for an organised crime family in Boston. But things change when she meets a young boy. Also stars Neal McDonough, Danny Glover, Xander Berkeley and Billy Brown. Coming on 12 January.
  3. Not exactly a superhero movie, but the story of the creation of Wonder Woman. http://deadline.com/2017/07/professor-marston-the-wonder-women-trailer-luke-evans-rebecca-hall-movie-1202130726/ Stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote and Connie Britton. Coming on 27 October. Evans plays Dr. William Moulton Marston, Hall plays his wife Elizabeth and Heathcote plays their lover Olive Byrne. I had no idea there was that sort of arrangement inspiring the character. The censors have an interesting take on the character too.
  4. Based on non-fiction book, The Operators, following General Stanley McChrystal in Afghanistan. But it's been turned into more of a satirical film, with Pitt playing General Dan McMahon to avoid issues with McChrystal. It'll also star Tilda Swinton, Will Poulter, Sir Ben Kingsley, Scoot McNairy, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Meg Tilly and Alan Ruck. Directed by David Michôd, of Animal Kingdom, which got a very good reception, and The Rover, which also seems to have gone down well. Release on 26 May.
  5. http://deadline.com/2017/05/jackie-chan-sylvester-stallone-ex-baghdad-scott-waugh-chinese-coproduction-1202090429/ Action thriller set in a Chinese oil refinery in Mosul which comes under attack. Chan is a private security contractor who is brought in to extract the workers, but discovers the real plan to steal oil. He teams up with Stallone, a former US Marine, to stop them. $80m budget with lots of Chinese financing. Scott Waugh directing. He did Need for Speed...
  6. Song Dynasty Matt Damon and Andy Lau take on some sort of monster at the Great Wall of China. First English language feature from Zhang Yimou, director of Hero and House of Flying Daggers. Apparently Andy Lau's first Hollywood movie too. I'm not sure if Damon, Willem Dafoe and Pedro Pascal are supposed to be Chinese. Released in China in December and US February.
  7. It seems as if Warner are wanting to make between 6-8 tentpole pictures a year with two of those being DC franchises. Whilst this in itself is quite interesting as it will mean we get 4 key comic book movies a year as Marvel are also set to release at least two Marvel flick per annum the most interesting bit is that it seems Superman is getting an early reboot. http://online.wsj.co...=googlenews_wsj Now this comes only three days after it was announced that WB were unsure which direction to take Superman (ie whether to continue with Singer's vision or start afresh) but the group President seems to be far more open on this being a completely fresh take on the character. It is interesting to see a reboot in the offing for a film that is still only a couple of years old but I guess he is such a big name that they need to do something soon. I'm happy if they do a reboot as I thought Returns was a terrible film and I couldn't really see how they'd fix the issues with a sequel unless they ignored several key plot elements from the first. Although the talk of making it as dark as possible is concerning. A dark tone perfectly suits Batman but I don't think it can necessarily work so well within the Superman universe. I fear that with the success of TDK Warner may just make all DC franchises as dark as possible because they think it currently sells. So where does this leave the new Superman film? Singer could still be attached as director although is he the right man and would he stay on a project when the studio have pretty much said his last interpretation sucked? If Singer was to leave then it is likely to mean WB will go for a more leftfield choice of director like they did with Nolan and the Batman films rather than just a director-for-hire. Timur Bekmambetov could be an interesting choice and he comes off the back of a big box office hit (Wanted) and his portfolio shows that he can do action which was something lacking in Returns. Brad Bird is another possibility and he is moving into live action with 1906 (see here) but he may not be available for a while. JJ Abrams is a director that fits in well with what Warner are probably looking for in a Superman film. He has the popular touch, is very much a visual story teller and is likely to build in an arc that would span several films. So what do people want from a Superman film? I'll admit that I've never been much of a fan of the character but I'd like to see... - Some proper evidence of his powers. The technology is there to make this a big scale picture. - No kid. - No origin story. - No Lex or if he does appear he isn't the proper villain but a background character. - A villain of equal stature that doesn't have to resort to using kryptonite. - No emo crap. - A strong and slightly older Lois. - Less emphasis on nerdy Clark. - For it not to be dark like the Batman films.
  8. Netflix seem to be busy with announcements this week. Sand Castle is a film set in Iraq in 2003. It stars Nicholas Hoult, Henry Cavill and Logan Marshall-Green. Second feature from Brazilian director Fernando Coimbra (A Wolf at the Door), who also did some of Narcos. Script by Chris Roessner, who is a veteran of the war. Coming 21 April.

    X-Force

    http://collider.com/x-force-movie-joe-carnahan-script Apparently X-Force is a thing and Fox are making a movie of it. They're like X-Men's more aggressive offshoot or something. Joe Carnahan is currently writing the script. Cable and Domino are two of the more prominent figures, and both are to appear in Deadpool 2 first. It seems the tone will be more like Deadpool than the traditional X-Men movies.
  10. Someone has been digitally 'enhancing' Home Alone with gore effects.
  11. Prompted by the discussion in the 80's thread, it's brought a couple of childhood memories bubbling to the surface. I'm a child of the 80's, our local video shop was a cornucopia of brilliant looking yet forbidden fruit. Shelves full of films that looked awesome, but scary, I'd spend ages looking at films there was no way my mum would let me rent, terminator, robocop, evil dead, aliens all the 18 rated films looked amazing, all the more so because they were 8 years or so out of reach. Though every now and then you got to bypass the rules and actually see one of these rare and wonderful films. And promptly realise why they are 18 rated. A few stand out - the Aliens memory quoted above is one. I come from a normal sized Scouse Irish family, (normal meaning my mum is one of 6 siblings). Every Saturday the whole clan would convene at my Nana's to eat scouse and hang out, smoking and watching grandstand, when she died the Saturday meet up moved to my eldest auntie's instead, by this time most of my big cousins were old enough to be off doing their own thing, but that left me and my little brother and my cousin who was in between us in age. We'd get dumped in the front room with a bottle of pop, some space raiders and the telly. If we moaned enough my uncle would get sent to get a video for us. Now he did not give a shit what we watched, he didn't have kids so was a bit clueless. One glorious weekend we casually mentioned that there was this new film out about a policeman and could he get that. He went off to the video shop and came back with Robocop. Yes, plan had worked. One boy i went to school with had seen it and told everyone on the bus in reverent, hushed tones how great it was, we were all in awe that the had seen it and now I was going to see it too, I'd be elite. It was truly amazing, it was also absolutely horrific. The arm, oh man, the arm. ED-209 going wrong, but worst of all, that mardy surgeon from ER going into the toxic waste and coming out all manky and then his head coming off. OFF. I don't think my little brother slept for a week. Awesome The other was a sleep over at a friend of my little brother, it was summer and we were "camping" in the garden. It was already late and we were still up and watching tv, i don't quite remember how it came to pass but we ended up watching American Werewolf in London. This was doubly good because as well as having bucketloads of gore it also featured nudey ladies. Result. However the scene with the zombie nazis stuck with me all night and i don't think I actually went to sleep. Horror film and staying in a tent do not mix. Years and years later, one January during busy season i was getting the tube back from a client approaching midnight, think it was bond street, but the station was deserted, it was just me, in a tube station, alone in the corridors, I had a massive flashback to AWiL and basically ran through the station to get out before I was eated. I must have been 28. So - how did you guys scar your fragile little minds?
  12. Thought there was a thread before, but perhaps it was just mentioned in passing somewhere. Disney and Spielberg do Roald Dahl's story. Opens 1 July in the US and 22 July in the UK.
  13. Of course they are. Paramount and Chernin Entertainment acquired the rights and Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) is directing it. O'Connor has been wanting to make it for nearly 20 years and has been tracking the rights and grabbed them, with Chernin, when they became available. The kitsch will go and everything moved to a more contemporary context (military background "which is more CIA Special Activities Division than SEAL Team 6"). Yes, that means existential struggles and self discovery are in too. O'Connor does seem passionate about making it, but will fans want to follow? It looks like it may be in danger of grimdark.
  14. Just keep swimming... https://www.facebook.com/FindingNemoDory
  15. Sega and Sony Pictures are going to do a live/CG hybrid Sonic movie. Yeah, I dunno. Just posting it for NEG really.
  16. I'd like to think I have a pretty broad knowledge of animated films but I'd never even heard of this one until tonight. It has a 1.3 rating on IMDb and the whole thing appears to be up on YouTube for those brave enough. Anyway, after watching the clip below I am making it my duty to check out the film in its entirety. Anybody actually sat through the movie? IT'S PARTY TIME!
  17. http://herocomplex.latimes.com/movies/exclusive-disney-animation-announces-first-marvel-movie-big-hero-6/ Can't say I've heard of the source comic, so I'll leave it to comic fans to say if it's any good. Notice Wreck-It Ralph on the big screen in the background The original is set in Tokyo but this is a mashup of Tokyo and San Francisco. I like this concept picture of what's presumably this worlds version of the Golden Gate Bridge.
  18. Based on the book The Mayor of MacDougal Street (which is where the below synopsis is from) it stars Isaac, Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Garret Hedlund. Synopsis: Dave Van Ronk (1936-2002) was one of the founding figures of the 1960s folk revival, but he was far more than that. A pioneer of modern acoustic blues, a fine songwriter and arranger, a powerful singer, and one of the most influential guitarists of the ’60s, he was also a marvelous storyteller, a peerless musical historian, and one of the most quotable figures on the Village scene. The Mayor of MacDougal Street is a first-hand account by a major player in the social and musical history of the ’50s and ’60s. It features encounters with young stars-to-be like Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, and Joni Mitchell, as well as older luminaries like Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, and Odetta. Colorful, hilarious, and engaging, The Mayor of MacDougal Street is a feast for anyone interested in the music, politics, and spirit of a revolutionary period in American culture.
  19. Synopsis: TRANCE, directed by Oscar®-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and co-written by Oscar®-nominated long term collaborator John Hodge (Shallow Grave, Trainspotting) is a seductive and enigmatic thriller starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson. Fine art auctioneer Simon (McAvoy), in league with a gang led by underworld boss Franck (Cassel), plots the audacious theft of a masterpiece by Goya from a major public auction. When Simon double-crosses the gang during the robbery, Franck retaliates violently and knocks him unconscious. In the aftermath of the heist, Simon sticks stubbornly – and perhaps shrewdly – to his claim that the violent trauma has left him with no memory of where he stashed the artwork. Unable to coerce the painting’s location from Simon, Franck and his associates reluctantly join forces with a charismatic hypnotherapist (Dawson) in a bid to get him to talk. But as they journey deeper into Simon’s jumbled psyche the boundaries between reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur and the stakes rise faster and far more dangerously than any of the players could have anticipated. Hopefully it is just a weak trailer but I'm not really sold on it so far.
  20. I wouldn't normally make a topic when so little is known about a film but a new Jonze-Kaufman film is a worthy exception. Synopsis: A man falls in love with the voice of a computer. The synopsis is pretty vague but ripe with possibility considering the writer involved. The other interesting aspect is the cast with stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Sam Morton and, most recently, Olivia Wilde. Fingers crossed it is as good as their previous collaborations.
  21. There's a Booster Gold movie coming. DC TV guy Greg Berlanti is involved and may direct. It's also written by someone who did some TV Flash. There is no mention of it being linked into the Snyder movies, though I suppose that doesn't mean it won't be. I had to Google who Booster Gold is. Apparently I have seen him in Smallville, but I've forgotten.
  22. Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) directs Hugh Jackman in a film about an ex-fighter who reinvents himself as a robot boxing mechanic/coach/promoter when human boxing is outlawed. It looks okay for what it is but I can't think of a single Levy directed film I've enjoyed so expectations will have to remain low.
  23. http://collider.com/chronicles-of-narnia-silver-chair-reboot/ They're continuing the franchise via a reboot. New cast, production, etc.
