‘Percy Jackson’ Author Still Hates the Movies, Says Disney+ Series Will Fix Everything

The best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians book series was turned into a film franchise that 20th Century Fox hoped would become their own Harry Potter. But after just two movies, it seemed the interest just wasn’t there, so fans never got to see the rest of the books brought to the big screen. That doesn’t seem to bother author Rick Riordan though, because he has been very outspoken about his hate for the movies, and he says the upcoming Disney+ series will not follow that same path of d...

Could a ‘Wanted’ Sequel Happen in the Screenlife Format? Director Timur Bekmambetov Hopes So

For years, Hollywood was considering making a sequel to Wanted, the 2008 film starring James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie as assassins who can curve a bullet’s trajectory in mid-air. And even though the movie came out more than a decade ago, it seems like the idea for a Wanted 2 isn’t dead just yet – at least, not in the mind of the first film’s director. Timur Bekmambetov, the director of Wanted and the producer of films like Searching and Unfriended, now suggests that a Wanted sequel could be ma...

‘Harry Potter’ Star Daniel Radcliffe Shows Support for Transgender Community, Refutes J.K. Rowling’s Tweets About Gender Identity

“Transgender women are women.” That’s the (correct) personal stance of former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who has written a brief essay responding to a series of tweets written this past weekend by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling which argue the contrary. Radcliffe’s support of the trans community prove once again that he’s a good dude, and in addition to that, his words about grappling with the stance of an auteur behind a popular piece of fiction are applicable in multiple cases acro...

See ‘The Goonies 2’ Concept Art Created for Adam F. Goldberg’s Pitch for the Sequel

For years and years, fans have been asking for the beloved 1985 adventured movie The Goonies to get a sequel. The film from director Richard Donner and producer Steven Spielberg is one of the most beloved movies to come out of the 1980s, and it’s always felt ripe for a legacy-quel introducing a new cast of kids and bringing back all of the stars from the original movie, now all grown up.

‘The Hate U Give’ is Available to Rent for Free on Digital Platforms as Protests Supporting Black Lives Matter Continue

‘Doctor Who’ Minisode Brings Back Bill Potts to Inform Aliens That Black Lives Matter

One of the greatest tragedies of Doctor Who season 10 — aside from being our last season with Peter Capaldi and for the alarmingly sad endings for our core characters — is that we only got one season with the TARDIS dream team that was Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, and Matt Lucas. Together, that trio was one of the most underrated ensembles of modern Who, and it’s still a shame that we only got 12 episodes with them. But in the latest special Doctor Who minisode released as part of the series’ ongoing...
