Noah Hawley Says We Shouldn’t Expect His ‘Star Trek’ Movie or ‘Alien’ TV Series Anytime Soon (Or Maybe Ever)

At one point, it seemed very likely that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley would be involved with both an Alien TV series and Star Trek 4. But these days, both projects are looking less and less likely. In a new interview, Hawley confirms that there’s next to no movement on either property. As Hawley tells it, he hasn’t really been involved with anything regarding Alien for a few years, and while Star Trek 4 came “very close to production,” things ultimately fizzled out. Alien TV Series...

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...

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...

Kate Mara Reflects on Her Fantastic Four Regrets

Kate Mara Reflects on Her Fantastic Four Regrets Many fans would rather pretend that Josh Trank’s critically-maligned Fantastic Four reboot never happened. Regardless, the movie’s well-documented shortcomings essentially guarantee that we’ll be talking about it for years to come. This is mainly because every so often, someone close to the film has something new to say about it. This week, that honor falls to Kate Mara, who starred in the reboot as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman. In a new sit-down ...

Ubisoft’s ‘Avatar’ Video Game Delayed So It Can Be Released Closer to James Cameron’s Sequels

Audiences won’t be saying “I see you” to Ubisoft’s new Avatar video game until sometime in 2022. Back in 2017, the video game giant announced that a brand new Avatar game was in the works courtesy of Massive Entertainment, the same company that made games like The Division, Far Cry 3, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Things have been quiet for years when it comes to status updates about the new project, but on a recent earnings call, Ubisoft revealed that the new Avatar game won’t be co...

‘Bob’s Burgers’ Creator Talks the Challenges of Making the Show and the Movie at the Same Time

Not only was there supposed to be a Bob’s Burgers movie on the big screen earlier this year, but there was a musical short film that would have also been released in theaters too. But unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic ruined all those plans. Thankfully, the Bob’s Burgers movie is still slated to arrive in theaters, and the silver lining is that the pandemic has given them ample to to really polish the final cut. However, as creator Loren Bouchard and supervising animator Janelle Momary re...

‘Avatar 2’ Underwater Scenes Had Sigourney Weaver and the Cast Holding Their Breath Over Six Minutes at a Time

Director James Cameron recently revealed that production on Avatar 2 is 100% complete in both live-action and motion capture filming, and Avatar 3 wasn’t too far behind. If you’re wondering what’s taking so damn long, it might be more than just the extensive post-production process and development of state-of-the-art technology. Because according to Sigourney Weaver, preparation for the shoot required cast members to train with “elite military divers” in order to allow them to hold their breath...

New ‘Avatar 2’ Image Reveals Edie Falco’s New Character, Who Certainly Sounds Like a Villain

The /Film staff has a bit of a running joke when it comes to Avatar 2 news: is the publicity team going out their way to release only the most boring images imaginable? But that’s the problem you face when the world of a film is largely digital and won’t be ready for primetime until long after the cameras have finished rolling. The other problem is that director James Cameron will hunt us down and hurt us if we joke too much. Naturally, this means just about every glimpse of the upcoming sequel...

‘Avatar: The Next Shadow’ Comic Book Will Fill the Gap Between ‘Avatar 2’ and the Original Movie

Now that the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in yet another delay for the first in a series of Avatar sequels, fans will need something to hold them over until Avatar 2 arrives in theaters in December of 2022. Thankfully, Dark Horse Comics has them covered with Avatar: The Next Shadow, a new limited Avatar sequel comic book series, which will be set between the events of the original movie and the first forthcoming sequel. It’s the first time an Avatar comic has taken place after the 2009 fil...

Bruce Willis Returns as John McClane for a ‘Die Hard’ Car Battery Commercial

The last time Bruce Willis reprised his role as John McClane in the Die Hard franchise, the results were disappointing to say the least. But over the weekend, fans were intrigued when the actor’s daughter, Rumer Willis, posted a teaser for the return of the increasingly invincible detective. For some reason, many thought this was a tease for a new Die Hard movie that no one had heard about. However, it turns out it was just a tease for an expensive new advertisement with John McClane shilling D...

‘The Empty Man’ Trailer: Here’s the Supernatural Horror Movie That Disney is Quietly Dumping in Theaters This Month

Poor The Empty Man. A supernatural horror movie based on the Boom! Studios graphic novels, The Empty Man has been pushed back and buried in the Disney release schedule so many times that it’s been virtually forgotten. And even now, the 20th Century Studios release is getting dropped in theaters with little fanfare except for this (first!) trailer, which has been released just one week before release.

Ridley Scott to Direct a Napoleon Film Starring Joaquin Phoenix

Sir Ridley Scott seems poised to do what Stanley Kubrick famously could not: make a movie about Napoleon. A new report says Scott is set to direct an epic Napoleon film called Kitbag which will reunite him with his Gladiator cast member Joaquin Phoenix, who recently won a Best Actor trophy at the Oscars for his work on last year’s Joker. Cue the “Napoleon dancing down the steps” memes, and learn more about the project below. Deadline reports that screenwriter David Scarpa, who previously wro...

In honor of this special day, 20th Century Studios released the first trailer for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, an adaptation of the stage musical of the same name about a 16-year old boy who dreams of being a drag queen, and it looks wonderful and fabulous.

Untitled David O. Russell Film Adds John David Washington Alongside Christian Bale and Margot Robbie

David O. Russell, a filmmaker who continues to land high-profile work despite several accusations of abusive behavior, has a new project lined-up, and it has quite the cast. Christian Bale and Margot Robbie are already on board, and now John David Washington has joined the ensemble as well. Legendary cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki will shoot the movie. And just what is the movie about? No one knows! Well, I’m sure people involved with the movie know, but they’re not talking. Director David...

‘The New Mutants’ Heads to Blu-ray and Digital in November

Remember The New Mutants? It’s the X-Men spin-off that originated at Fox, got its release date pushed around a bunch of times, became a Disney movie after the Fox-Disney merger, and then finally found its way to theaters in the midst of a deadly pandemic. And now…it’s coming home. The New Mutants Blu-ray and VOD release is set for November, coming packaged with deleted scenes and other special features for your viewing pleasure.

‘Free Guy’ Trailer: Ryan Reynolds Is Living in a Video Game Somehow More Chaotic Than 2020

If you thought 2020 was full of insanity, imagine what life would be like if we were living in a video game like Grand Theft Auto. That’s the premise of a new movie called Free Guy, following Ryan Reynolds as a non-playable background character in an open world video game who suddenly wants a little more out of his life, setting him up to be the game’s new hero. A new Free Guy trailer has arrived, optimistically hoping the movie will be able to keep the December release date. Free Guy Trail...

James Cameron Says Live-Action ‘Avatar 2’ Production Is Complete, ‘Avatar 3’ Almost Finished Too

Towards the end of 2019, director James Cameron said the performance capture side of both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 had been completed. At the time, he said they were mostly done with the live-action side of production too, but they had a couple more months of work to do that would be completed in the spring. However, he wasn’t expecting the coronavirus pandemic to put a wrench in those plans, and production in New Zealand was forced to shut down a bit, resulting all the Avatar sequels being delaye...

New ‘Avatar’ Sequel Set Photos Send Soldiers and Stuntmen into Battle

Even though Avatar 2 wasn’t slated to hit theaters until December of 2021, the delays in production brought about by the coronavirus pandemic have forced James Cameron to push the movie back to December 2022 instead. But the cast and crew are still hard at work in New Zealand, where the country has no locally acquired cases of coronavirus. Producer Jon Landau has posted two more Avatar sequel set photos to keep fans as excited as they can be with less than a year and a half until release. The...

‘Black Widow’ and ‘West Side Story’ Delayed Until 2021 as Disney Shuffles Release Dates Once Again

Disney has pushed back its entire fall theatrical release schedule by several months, moving films like Marvel’s Black Widow and Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story to 2021. Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile, originally set to premiere in theaters in October 2020, has been pushed back to December, while 2021 films like Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Eternals have been moved deeper into 2021.

CS Reviews The Making of Aliens by J.W. Rinzler

CS Reviews The Making of Aliens by J.W. Rinzler What more can be said of James Cameron’s sci-fi blockbuster Aliens — one of the greatest action flicks of all time, featuring, perhaps, cinema’s most famous action heroine; and boasting any number of long-lasting pop cultural staples including the Alien Queen, the military aesthetic, and the various set pieces that have since been replicated in any number of films? As it turns out, quite a bit. To that end, J.W. Rinzler, author of “The Making o...

‘Avatar’ Sequels: Sigourney Weaver Goes Underwater (as a New Character)

You may have forgotten that sci-fi movie queen Sigourney Weaver is playing a new character in James Cameron‘s long-delayed Avatar sequels. That’s what happens when casting news is released in 2014 and the movie hasn’t come out yet. Instead, Cameron said “she’s playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films,” and now there are some new set photos of Weaver donning an underwater stunt.

Ridley Scott Says It’s “Doubtful” the New ‘Alien’ Movie Will Continue the Story of ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Alien: Covenant’

In the wake of Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, the future of the Alien film franchise is very much up in the air. But Ridley Scott, the director who kicked off the entire thing with his 1979 classic and later returned to direct both Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, confirms the rumors that a new film is in the works. But according to Scott, it’s “doubtful” that this new Alien movie (should it ever materialize) will continue the story of Prometheus and Covenant. Sounds like we go ahead ...

The New Mutants Is a Fitting Final Act for Fox's X-Men Franchise

The New Mutants is a curious quagmire of a film that’s been defined by “what ifs” from the moment it was announced five years ago. What if it followed Apocalypse’s example and dragged the X-Men cinematic franchise further into the gutter? What if it somehow managed to be good? What if The New Mutants actually lived up…Read more...

(Note: This critic is working outside the United States and was able to see this movie in an environment that’s safer than a typical American theater. Considering the way the U.S. has handled the coronavirus pandemic and the dangers it still presents, /Film cannot endorse Americans returning to movie theaters at this time.)

‘The New Mutants’: Fox Reportedly Hated the First Cut So Much That They Nearly Started Over From Scratch

It’s time for one of my favorite things in this business we call show: the troubled movie post-mortem! Often, whenever there’s a high-profile film that has a messy production history, the release of said film comes accompanied by a break-down of “what went wrong.” It happened with Suicide Squad. It happened with The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. And now it’s happening with The New Mutants. The Josh Boone-directed X-Men spin-off has had its release date shuffled around more times than we can count,...

Cool Stuff: Diamond Select’s ‘The Iron Giant’ Action Figure and Sculpture Are Both Superman

It’s been over 20 years since The Iron Giant blasted onto the big screen, delivering one of the last great 2D animated movies. The film from director Brad Bird has a classic sci-fi feel with touches of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, and it’s been much more appreciated in the years since it was released than when it was in theaters. That means there have been some outstanding collectibles released paying tribute to the robot from space who made the choice to be Superman instead of a mindless weapon...
