‘Your Name’ U.S. Remake Will Be “Through the Lens of a Western Viewpoint”

It’s the word that we all dread when we hear about a Hollywood remake of a wildly successful foreign-language property: “Americanized.” Often it comes with the territory of making an English-language remake of a foreign movie — after all you have to cater to your audience. But for Bad Robot, which is currently developing the U.S. Your Name remake with Arrival writer Eric Heisserer attached, it’s a tricky line to walk in lieu of a history of bad anime remakes and recent controversies around whit...

‘Bird Box’ Deleted Scene Showed One of the Creatures, Described as a “Long Fat Baby”

The new Netflix horror movie Bird Box never shows us the terrifying creatures that are picking-off human beings, and that’s a smart move. By keeping these malevolent beings off-screen, we’re free to let our imaginations run wild. But at one point the movie could’ve been much different. According to star Sandra Bullock, there’s a Bird Box deleted scene that actually shows us one of the creatures, revealing it to be a “long fat baby.” With that in mind, it’s probably for the best that they left t...

Valiant’s Plus-Sized Superhero ‘Faith’ is Getting Her Own Movie

People come in all shapes and sizes, so superheroes should too. While there have been plenty of male superheroes who haven’t had the traditional buff physique that a superhero has had in comic books, female comic book characters have often been drawn with unrealistic body proportions. They have super small waists and sizeable bosoms and backsides, creating unrealistic expectations, especially for younger, impressionable readers. But one superhero from Valiant Comics has tried to change that, an...
