‘Godzilla vs Kong’ Likely to Get a Streaming Release, Probably at HBO Max

Following the recent decision by Warner Bros. Pictures to release Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max simultaneously with a theatrical release on Christmas Day, the floodgates are open for more studio blockbusters to take the streaming route. At least that might be the case for some of the big movies that Warner Bros. has waiting in the wings. Word on the streets of Hollywood is that Godzilla vs Kong may be the next major movie to land a streaming deal with HBO Max being the likely recipient. The Ho...

‘Tenet’ Featurette: How “The Plan” Came Together for Travis Scott to End the Movie with Style

Christopher Nolan‘s complex time inversion blockbuster Tenet is finally leaving theaters and coming to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD just in time for Christmas. To hype the forthcoming home video release, Warner Bros. Pictures released a featurette that showcases hip-hop artist Travis Scott‘s original song “The Plan” and how it came to be in the movie. It turns out we have Grammy-winning Black Panther composer Ludwig Göransson (above right) to thank for that. Tenet Featurette – Travis Scot...

‘The Mandalorian’ Comes with Major Revelations and More Questions in “The Jedi”

Naturally, there are spoilers here. Dave Filoni, protege of George Lucas and a shepherd of the future of Star Wars, wrote and directed the thirteenth chapter of The Mandalorian. In this episode, Din Djarin finally makes his way to the forest planet of Corvus and the city of Calodan, and it’s there that we meet a familiar face.

Katee Sackhoff on the Thrill and Challenges of Returning to ‘Star Wars’ as Bo-Katan in ‘The Mandalorian’ [Interview]

Katee Sackhoff made her triumphant return to Star Wars by reprising her role as Bo-Katan Kryze in live-action for the first time in a recent episode of The Mandalorian. Though we got the jump on the character’s move from the animated side of Star Wars to live-action, seeing Bo-Katan fly into action wearing her full Mandalorian armor was quite a treat. /Film was pleased to chat with Katee Sackhoff about the thrill and challenges that came with bringing Bo-Katan to life in a more complete way aft...

The series, which “is set in the future where humanity has colonized the solar system,” originated on Syfy, where it ran for three seasons.

‘The Mandalorian’ Feeds the Child’s Hunger with Official, Infuriatingly Expensive Macarons

Last week’s episode of The Mandalorian gave us the latest adorable Baby Yoda scene. We watched the Child admire a pack of blue macarons that a kid was eating, and when they rudely wouldn’t acquiesce to The Child’s desire for one, he rightfully used his Force abilities to snatch them. He even brought them back to the Razor Crest for a space snack (though he ended up throwing them up all over himself). Now The Mandalorian macarons can be yours, but you’re not going to like how much they cost. ...

‘Boss Level’, a Joe Carnahan Time Loop Movie Starring Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson, Heads to Hulu

Boss Level, the latest from Narc and The Grey director Joe Carnahan, has been sitting around waiting for a distributor since 2019. The sci-fi action flick that stars Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson was originally scheduled to arrive in August 2019, but it missed its release date and has been without a home ever since Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures, who purchased the film in 2018, dropped it. Now, Boss Level will have a second chance, thanks to Hulu. The streaming service just signed an eight...

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Gets Some Love from the Sioux Falls, South Dakota City Council, of All Places

Rian Johnson has been a real trooper on Twitter for the past three years. Despite the exorbitant amount of hate that his 2017 film Star Wars: The Last Jedi has received from certain circles, Johnson has taken it like a champ, spreading humor and goodwill with his followers, and mostly ignoring the trolls that pile into his replies. But even Johnson needs some support every now and then, and a viral video of a Last Jedi fan getting the film’s greatness on the record with the Sioux Falls, South D...

New ‘Predator’ Movie Coming From ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Director Dan Trachtenberg

Time to polish off your trophy skulls: the Predator is back. A new Predator movie is in the works at 20th Century Studios, with 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg set to direct a script from Patrick Aison. The film’s plot is under wraps, but it apparently won’t have anything to do with The Predator, the 2018 sequel directed by Shane Black. Deadline is reporting that Dan Trachtenberg will direct a new Predator movie, and the thing is, much like the Predator himself, it might have b...

‘Cowboy Bebop’ Live-Action Series Officially Makes Gren Nonbinary

In the Cowboy Bebop anime, Grencia Mars Elijah Guo Eckener, nicknamed Gren, was always a character for whom gender was…let’s say, fluid. Basically — in a very anime twist on things — an experimental drug causes Gren to grow breasts. Despite the strangeness of Gren’s origins, the character would become informally recognized as an LGBTQ icon in anime. And the Netflix live-action series is taking it one step further: officially making the live-action Gren a nonbinary character. Netflix revealed...

‘Chaos Walking’ Trailer: Daisy Ridley is the First Woman Tom Holland Has Ever Seen

Back in the spring of 2019, it was said that Doug Liman‘s new sci-fi film Chaos Walking was “unreleasable,” and Lionsgate was going to spend millions of dollars on reshoots in an attempt to fix it. Well, we can finally get a taste of those results as the first Chaos Walking trailer has arrived, revealing that Tom Holland lives on a planet where all women have disappeared and the inner-monologues of men are unwillingly audible for anyone to hear. That’s made all the more complicated when Daisy R...

‘Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge’ Review: A Simple But Immersive VR Shooter with Lots of Potential

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is a new virtual reality video game experience from Lucasfilm, ILMxLAB, and Oculus that allows players to step into the world of Batuu, the planet where the Star Wars theme park expansions at Disneyland and Disney World exist in the franchise’s official canon. However, rather than creating an experience that just lets fans walk around a virtual version of Galaxy’s Edge, this is an action-packed video game shooter that allows you to explore areas surroundi...

"With her power there's no telling what he can do." Lionsgate has finally launched the first full trailer for Chaos Walking, the long-delayed, epic new sci-fi action movie from Doug Liman, that has also undergone reshoots after originally being set to open in 2019. Based on a book, the sci-fi film is set in a dystopian world where there are no women and all living creatures can hear each others' thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise. Which is visualized in a clever w...

‘Superintelligence’ Featurette Touts an Apocalyptic Love Story with Melissa McCarthy

Just last week, the underwhelming first trailer for Melissa McCarthy‘s new comedy Superintelligence arrived with a whimper. The movie from director Ben Falcone was intended to be released in theaters in December 2019, but it has now been relegated to a release on HBO Max during Thanksgiving weekend. Perhaps that’s because the movie looks like a strange mesh of sci-fi and romance that doesn’t make much sense, and not even a new Superintelligence featurette can sell it properly. Superintellige...

‘The Wilds’ Trailer: Amazon’s New Series Feels Like Teen Girls in a Young Adult ‘Lost’

Back when Lost was all the rage on ABC, every network was trying to craft their own mysterious series to follow in its footsteps. But with the series being over for 10 years, Amazon is hoping a new generation won’t know any better when they take a chance on The Wilds. The new young adult series finds a group of teen girls stranded on a deserted island after their plane crashes, and the “one twist” that they’re putting out there from the get-go is that these girls didn’t end up on the island by ...

George Lucas Says Fox Feared the Prequels Would Destroy ‘Star Wars’

The Star Wars prequels have gained a sort of infamy amongst fans of the franchise, and some fans even suggest they “destroyed” the series. Which is what 20th Century Fox executives feared would happen — though not for the reasons you may think. In Taschen’s upcoming book The Star Wars Archives: 1999-2005, it’s revealed that Fox thought George Lucas would “destroy” the franchise if he made 10-year-old Anakin Skywalker the star of the prequel films. There are a number of reasons that Star Wars...

Anthony Daniels Recalls the “Mistake” of the ‘Star Wars Holiday Special’ and C-3PO’s Finest Moment [Interview]

The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is out today on Disney+, exactly 42 years after the abysmal original Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS.

‘LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special’ Review: A Delightfully Goofy Time Travel Trip in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

The last time Star Wars attempted to have its own holiday special, it resulted in one of the biggest mistakes in the history of the sci-fi saga. So why is Disney+ even attempting to make another one? Well, thanks to the existence of the LEGO side of Star Wars entertainment, the franchise has the perfect path to have fun with the saga without sullying any of the mythology.

‘Space Force’ Season 2 Officially Ordered for Blast Off at Netflix

The first season of the Netflix’s comedy series Space Force starring Steve Carell feels like it premiered years ago, but it only hit the streaming service back at the end of May this year. Netflix doesn’t often take long to renew their hit shows, but in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, it seems like maybe some numbers needed to be crunched to figure out whether the show was worth bringing back for a second season. That’s probably why the series will be moving production to Vancouver instea...
