Lucasfilm Lost Children Of Blood And Bone When It Let The Rights Lapse

For most moviegoers, Lucasfilm is synonymous with "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones," but over the years, the studio has also branched out and produced other projects not related to those two giant IPs. One such project that it had in development was an adaptation of Tomi Adeyemi's YA fantasy novel, "Children of Blood and Bone," but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucasfilm let the movie rights lapse and that is what enabled Paramount to pick them up.What makes this news interesting is that "C...

Billy Eichner's LGBTQ+ Rom-Com Bros Has Moved Release Dates

When Paramount announced that its 600lb gorilla (which we call "Mission: Impossible 7") moved to 2023 earlier this week, it seemed to cause a bit of a reshuffle. That tends to happen when a franchise film moves off its date, because so much of the thought process that goes into a movie studio's release schedule involves avoiding getting dwarfed by one of the giants. So, if a "Star Wars" or Marvel or DC or "Avatar" film shifts its release date, you'll always see the rest of the studios scrambling...

Paramount Reportedly Shifts Release Dates For A Quiet Place, Transformers, And More

Sigh. It's fine. Everything is fine. As I stop myself from using the dog in the fire drinking coffee meme, let me explain what I'm talking about. IndieWire is reporting that Paramount has moved some theatrical releases. One of those is "A Quiet Place 3," and that's not the only big name making a move. "Mission: Impossible 7" is moving for the fifth time as well as a slew of others. It's also going to shift "Mission: Impossible 8" to a later date. The franchise's move has been confirmed by the si...

Skydance Media Ditches Paramount, Sets New Deal With Apple

Skydance Media, the studio behind the "Mission: Impossible" and "Terminator" franchises, has signed a new deal with Apple, and that means big things for the future of streaming on the movie side. It also means that Paramount Pictures, who had been Skydance's biggest partner for roughly a decade, are going to be left out in the cold to some degree. Basically, it is shifting a producer of giant, crowd-pleasing blockbusters out of the hands a traditional movie studio (woefully short on its own big ...

Mission: Impossible 7 And 8 Release Dates Have Been Delayed Again

I hope you hadn't started your "Mission: Impossible" marathons in anticipation of watching the next two movies in the long-running, death-defying, and wildly entertaining franchise. This isn't likely to come as a surprise to anyone who's been following along with the many production pauses and release date shuffles that have plagued the next two entries of the Tom Cruise-starring action vehicles, but today we've received word that -- once again -- "Mission: Impossible 7" and "Mission: Impossible...

Everything We Know About The A Quiet Place Spin-Off So Far

The John Krasinski-directed "A Quiet Place" was one of the rare original mid-budget films to hit it big at the box office in the past five years. It was also a captivating director-driven genre movie in which Krasinski used its setting — a world where the planet has been overrun by blind alien creatures that are extremely sensitive to sound — as a springboard for telling a personal story about parents and their relationship with their children. "A Quiet Place Part II," which Krasinski also helme...

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Production Delayed Again Due To Positive Covid Tests

Working during the pandemic has obviously been hard for everyone, and the movie and TV industry is no exception. After shutting down for several months, the top Hollywood studios and guilds agreed on a set of safety protocols for production in September 2020, not long after "Jurassic World Dominion" became one of the first major films to resume shooting (and helping to provide a model for others to follow). Those protocols have been tweaked and extended many times since then, with the latest ite...

The Man Who Fell To Earth Teaser: Chiwetel Ejiofor Is Here To Change The Future

After moving from Hulu to CBS All Access (before that service was rebranded as Paramount+) and then to Showtime, the TV series version of "The Man Who Fell to Earth" is finally ready to invade homes this year. The show is loosely based on the 1963 sci-fi novel of the same name by "The Queen's Gambit" author Walter Tevis, which itself was famously turned into a film starring David Bowie in 1976. But where Bowie played Thomas Jerome Newton, a human-like alien who crash-landed on Earth in search of...

Why Bam Margera Barely Appears In Jackass Forever

"Jackass" is a franchise that has tested the limits the human mind and body with a litany of crazy, gross, weird, and all-out insane stunts that the whole crew took part in. But sometimes, the lifestyle of cast members would go a little overboard and into some darker territory. Such was the case for Bam Margera, who was long a fixture on the show and movie series, and is curiously absent from "Jackass Forever."The fourth main installment in the "Jackass" movie franchise restarted filming in the ...

An Early Twilight Script Had Bella Escaping The FBI On A Jet Ski

When we hear the title "Twilight," our minds immediately drift into the happy-place world of blue hues, pacific northwest landscapes, slurpy cups full of blood, shirtless sparkly torsos, and... Ahem. Okay, maybe that's just me. But that's neither here nor there. The important takeaway is that in the many years of its cinematic existence, the "Twilight" saga has seared a certain impression into our brains. The supernatural love story is all about existential yearning, Romeo and Juliet allusions, ...
