Taika Waititi to Voice Classic ‘Star Wars’ Character in ‘The Mandalorian’

The Mandalorian has an impressive roster of directors helming episodes of the Disney+ streaming show, including Thor: Ragnarok‘s Taika Waititi. But Waititi may be doing more than getting behind the camera. A new behind-the-scenes photo from The Mandalorian executive producer Jon Favreau shows Waititi behind the mic to voice a classic Star Wars character.

‘Dora the Explorer’ Movie Casts Danny Trejo as Loyal Companion Boots the Monkey

Believe it or not, that Dora the Explorer movie is arriving in theaters late this summer, and we’re about to get a glimpse of what we can expect when the first trailer drops this weekend during the Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon. But before the trailer even arrives for Dora and the Lost City of Gold, we’ve already got a perplexing piece of information about the adaptation of the animated series for kids. Yesterday, along with the first theatrical posters for the Dora the Explorer movie, Mach...

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Actor Michael Rooker Will Have ‘Monster Problems’ With ‘The Maze Runner’ Star Dylan O’Brien

Back in 2012, Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Night at the Museum) was gearing up to direct a film called Monster Problems, a post-apocalyptic coming-of-age story based on a script by Brian Duffield (Insurgent, Jane Got a Gun). Time passed, and that version of the movie fell away into the gaping maw of Hollywood’s endless “what if” scenarios. But Monster Problems is back, crawling out of its early grave. Guardians of the Galaxy actor Michael Rooker has joined the project alongside The Maze Runner ...

New ‘The Three Musketeers’ Movie in the Works at Netflix, Described in the Same Vein as ‘Mission: Impossible’

Every few years, there’s always a new Three Musketeers movie, and it’s not because of the enduring popularity of the silver-wrapped candy bar. It’s because Alexandre Dumas‘ classic adventure is in the public domain, so it doesn’t cost anything to acquire established intellectual property. Now it’s Netflix’s turn to tackle the story set in the 17th century, but this time it will be a modern take on the tale and is said to have a tone similar to Mission: Impossible. The Hollywood Reporter has n...

Danny Boyle Calls His James Bond 25 Exit “A Great Shame”

When Danny Boyle was announced as the director of James Bond 25, the movie world was abuzz with what his version of a Bond movie would look like. But alas, that buzz was cut short when Boyle suddenly left the project in August last year, citing that dreaded term: “creative differences.” Boyle hasn’t spoken since on the reason he clashed over the vision of the film with star Daniel Craig and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, but in a new interview, he illuminates why he left the ...

‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Director Compares Rodan to a “Massive A-Bomb”

Godzilla may be King of the Monsters, but he’s got a hell of an impressive kingdom. Once the superior monster wreaking havoc on the Earth in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film Godzilla, the radioactive giant lizard is about to be joined by the Pandora’s box of creatures, including some of Toho’s most famous kaiju, Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah. But where before Godzilla seemed like the kaiju to beat, Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty teases that he has some stiff competition. ...

‘Masters of the Universe’ Reboot Wants Noah Centineo to Play He-Man

Noah Centineo, the internet’s boyfriend who may or may not be a young clone of Mark Ruffalo, might be headed to Eternia. The To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before actor is being sought after to play He-Man in the Masters of the Universe reboot. This would certainly be a far cry from the last live-action version of He-Man, played by Dolph Lundgren in 1987. The Wrap broke the news about Noah Centineo joining the Masters of the Universe reboot cast as He-Man. Centineo is in talks to join the film,...

‘Jiu Jitsu’ Will See Nicolas Cage Fighting an Alien that Returns to Earth Every Six Years

Nicolas Cage refuses to make a boring movie. His eternal quest to have audiences say “What the hell is this?” continues with Jiu Jitsu, a sci-fi action film in which Cage will team-up with a martial artist to fight an alien – an alien that comes to earth every six years, looking for a fight. Does this sound like the best movie ever made? Yes. Yes it does. THR reports that the Jiu Jitsu movie will hail from writer-director Dimitri Logothetis, a filmmaker responsible for work on several Kickbo...

Disney/Fox Deal is Done, But Don’t Expect to See X-Men in the MCU Anytime Soon

Well, it happened. Disney’s acquisition of key 21st Century Fox entertainment assets has officially gone through, and we are now living in a post-Fox world. One of Hollywood’s long-standing studios has just been swallowed whole. Thousands of jobs are at risk. It’s a dark day. Some will claim that this is a necessary step in these tumultuous times, and a certain section of fandom will take a bizarre solace in the fact that at least this acquisition means that they’ll get to see the Fantastic Fou...

‘Game of Thrones’ Writers Defend Last Season’s Controversial Pacing Choices

For the first several seasons of Game of Thrones, the show made a point to take things slowly in terms of travel, establishing huge distances between its major cities and building the reality of its fantasy world by having characters traverse those distances across long stretches of episodes. But in season 7, it was as if the show mounted an ACME rocket, lit the fuse, and hung on for dear life as it rocketed forward at a breakneck pace. Now some of the folks involved with creating the show have...

Russo Brothers Confirm They’re Misleading Audiences Again With ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailers

When it comes to Marvel movie trailers, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that we shouldn’t believe what we see. Spider-Man was hidden from an airport fight shot in the Captain America: Civil War trailer, the Thor: Ragnarok trailers faked out audiences by including a key shot of Thor with both of his eyes, and an Avengers: Infinity War trailer threw us off by including a shot of Hulk running with Team Wakanda that never even appeared in the film. Now directors Anthony and Joe Russo have confir...

How ‘Rogue One’ Changed From Its Original Script, According to Screenwriter Chris Weitz

Plenty of movies get changed on the way from the page to the big screen, but few perhaps as drastically (or infamously) as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The standalone Star Wars film went through dramatic changes in the summer of 2016, which saw significant plot points dropped and whole scenes that appeared in the trailer not show up in the finished film. We don’t know the full extent of the Rogue One changes, but Rogue One co-writer Chris Weitz is here to enlighten us on what the original film...

‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ Might Take Place in the Old West

It’s been almost a decade since we’ve seen Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law’s John Watson share the big screen in 2011’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, but Warner Bros. is still interested in bringing them back to complete the trilogy. They’ve set a new release date for Sherlock Holmes 3 in 2021, and now a new report says that the pair could be leaving London for the sequel and heading to the American Old West.

Showtime’s ‘Halo’ TV Show Brings On a Second Showrunner

The history of a Halo adaptation is rife with stops and starts, but it seems as if Showtime is finally going to bring the popular video game to the small screen – and they’ve hired a second showrunner to do it. Steven Kane (TNT’s The Last Ship) is joining original showrunner Kyle Killen to tackle the premium channel’s “most ambitious series ever,” and you can read on to learn why this show requires two people to lead the charge. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Steven Kane (The Last Ship...

‘Detective Pikachu’ Crew Tested Danny DeVito’s Voice to Play the Pokémon Investigator

When it was announced that the first live-action Pokémon movie coming from Hollywood would be Detective Pikachu, fans were perplexed. They were even more surprised when they learned that Ryan Reynolds would be voicing the titular electrified pocket monster turned world class detective. That might be because many fans felt like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Danny DeVito would have been the perfect choice to take the role instead. Funnily enough, the Batman Returns villain was considered...

Exclusive: The Original ‘RoboCop’ Poster Was Actually a Painting, and Now You Can Buy It As a Metallic Print

Part man, part machine, all cop. That’s the tagline you’ll find on the original teaser poster for the 1980s favorite RoboCop. The poster is a classic, and any fan can immediately picture RoboCop stepping out of the Detroit Police car, the lights flashing bright red as your imagination runs wild with the prospect of having a robot police officer taking care of justice on the streets. You might not have realized this, but that theatrical poster  for the Paul Verhoeven movie wasn’t simply a touche...

How Laika Found the ‘Missing Link’ Between CG and Stop-Motion Animation [Set Visit Report]

Stepping into Laika’s Missing Link set is like stepping into a giant dollhouse or wandering into a miniaturized movie studio. Either way, it’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. The hybrid animation studio revolutionized the stop-motion game when it debuted its 3D-printed film Coraline in 2009. Since then, the independent stop-motion studio has been steadily innovating with each of its films, earning critical and awards success, and the respect from their peers in the technology fields, alo...

‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ TV Spot: Godzilla Puts on an Intimidating Light Show

It doesn’t take much for Godzilla to intimidate people: roaring at the top of his lungs or breathing a huge plume of fire will usually do the trick. But in lieu of those options, there’s another method of intimidation he can utilize, and you can see it in action in this new TV spot for this summer’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Godzilla King of the Monsters TV Spot Audiences probably best know Charles Dance as the pragmatic, cold-hearted patriarch Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones,...

‘Bumblebee 2’ and Future ‘Transformers’ Movies Will Feature “A Little More Bayhem”, According to Their Producer

Last year’s Transformers prequel Bumblebee took a stripped-down approach to its story about an alien robot by eschewing excessive action in favor of an Amblin-style relationship between the eponymous Autobot and Hailee Steinfeld’s human character. But according to the film’s producer, they still haven’t quite landed on the right balance between character moments and action beats. In a new interview, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (who’s produced every Transformers movie thus far) says he plans to switc...

Hans Zimmer is Scoring ‘Dune’, Which Has an Official Synopsis and A Possible New Cast Member

Aside from John Williams, Hans Zimmer is in a rarified group of modern film composers who have celebrity status and widespread recognition based on their names alone. Zimmer is an Oscar winner who’s crafted scores for films like The Lion King, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Inception, and dozens more, and now he’s adding another sci-fi notch to his belt: Zimmer will provide the Dune score for Denis Villeneuve‘s upcoming movie adaptation of the classic Frank Herbert novel.

Rowling’s beloved universe is…unsteady.) Earlier this year, J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world went to shit. Literally.

‘The Brigands of Rattlecreek’: Park Chan-wook Directing Violent Western for Amazon, Matthew McConaughey Eyed to Star

Years before writer S. Craig Zahler made his directorial debut with his ultra-violent western Bone Tomahawk, he sold a screenplay for a different ultra-violent western called The Brigands of Rattleborge, which had Oldboy director Park Chan-wook lined up to direct way back in 2012. Despite the script being on The Black List in 2006, the project was stuck in development hell for years, but now Amazon has picked it up with a slightly-altered name: The Brigands of Rattlecreek.
