Harrison Ford Says Indiana Jones Dies With Him (Sorry, Chris Pratt)

Harrison Ford is about to make what will probably be his final Indiana Jones film. But don’t think for a second that means that someone else will take over the role – not as far as Ford is concerned, at least. According to the hilariously curmudgeonly actor, the role of Indiana Jones dies with him, and that’s final. Ford also spoke a bit about his late Star Wars co-star Peter Mayhew, who died in April. Man, I love Harrison Ford. — Tanooki Joe™? (@TanookiKuribo) Ma...

Taika Waititi’s ‘Akira’ Film Rides Into Theaters in 2021

Warner Bros. has been trying to make a live-action Akira movie for years, and so many talented filmmakers have cycled through its development that I honestly never thought we’d see it happen. But it looks like director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople) is going to be the one to finally crack it, because the film now has an official release date. Akira Release Date Announcement The studio says Waititi’s version of Akira will hit theaters on May 21, 2021. “I always...

Naomi Scott Belts Out a New Song for ‘Aladdin’ in “Speechless” Music Video

The original Aladdin was made all the way back in 1992. So it only makes sense that the music video for a new original song in the live-action remake of Disney’s animated classic is a throwback to that decade too. Disney has just released the full version of “Speechless,” a new song that Naomi Scott sings in the movie as Princess Jasmine. It’s a powerful ballad that gives Jasmine a new dimension as she sings that she won’t be silenced or shut down. The oppression of women is something that wasn...

‘Child’s Play’ Remake Makes Chucky More Sympathetic, If That’s Something You’re Interested In

Sympathetic villains can often be intriguing, but sometimes you just can’t beat a straight-up-evil antagonist. While watching the films in the original Child’s Play franchise, I never once stopped and thought, “I sure wish Chucky were more sympathetic!” But that’s apparently exactly what we’re getting in the upcoming Child’s Play remake, at least according to Lars Klevberg. Klevberg says the big change in the new Chucky’s backstory ultimately turns him into something of a tragic figure. Well, t...

‘Aladdin’ Review: A Well-Meaning But Hollow Remake of a Classic

At a crucial juncture in the new live-action Aladdin , our eponymous hero is in the puffed-up guise of a fancy prince, supposedly encountering the comely Princess Jasmine for the first time. In reality, though, they’ve met before even as Aladdin is trying to pretend otherwise. In this moment, Aladdin is hopelessly tongue-tied, desperate to please but failing at just about every moment, valiant effort aside. Such is the experience of Aladdin in a microcosm. This film is desperate to please...

‘Aladdin’: Watch Composer Alan Menken Perform a Medley of Disney Songs, and Learn How Will Smith Crafted His Version of Genie

Despite going into Guy Ritchie‘s Aladdin with almost no hope whatsoever, I ended up being won over by the movie. Fans of the original Aladdin won’t be disappointed, and while I’ve grown to be somewhat cynical about Disney remaking its animated classics, this one justifies its existence by making some interesting updates while staying true to its characters. This past weekend, I attended the Aladdin press conference in Beverly Hills, and amid all of the expected answers about singing and dancing...

‘Witchfinder General’ Remake Coming From John Hillcoat and Nicolas Winding Refn

John Hillcoat, director of dark, disturbing movies like The Proposition and The Road, is teaming with master of neon-sleaze Nicolas Winding Refn for a Witchfinder General remake. Based on the 1968 Vincent Price movie of the same name, Witchfinder General is a historical horror film about real-life figure Matthew Hopkins, and the terrible, torturous deeds he performed in the name of “witch hunting” in the 1600s.

‘The Wild Bunch’ Remake Hoping to Recruit Michael Fassbender, Jamie Foxx, Peter Dinklage for Director Mel Gibson

Proving that there are indeed second, third, and even forth acts in Hollywood, Mel Gibson is being given the keys to a major motion picture yet again. The controversial actor and filmmaker is set to helm a remake of The Wild Bunch, and some heavy-hitting talent is already lining-up to work with him. Michael Fassbender, Jamie Foxx, and Peter Dinklage are all in talks to join the Wild Bunch remake cast, indicating that Warner Bros. wants to put together an impressive cast for this contemporary re...

‘Aladdin’ Special Look Takes You To ‘The World of Aladdin’

The reaction to Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin has been a bit…muted. The footage revealed is a bit lacking, and fans of the original don’t quite know what to make of Will Smith‘s take on the Genie. We won’t know how the film actually is until it’s release, but let’s just say the enthusiasm for this live-action Disney remake is a lot lower than previous releases. But maybe this Aladdin special look will do the trick. The video below goes behind-the-scenes of the Guy Ritchie-directed adapt...

Thai Heist Thriller ‘Bad Genius’ is the Latest Criminally Underseen Movie to Get a Hollywood Remake

Another day, another English-language remake of an Asian movie that deserved to get more eyeballs on it. Bad Genius is a Thai high school heist movie that broke box office records across Southeast Asian and became Thailand’s highest grossing movie of 2017, and even became a minor hit at film festivals in the U.S. Now an English-language Bad Genius is in the works, with You’re the Worst writer Eva Anderson set to pen the adaptation. Deadline reported from Cannes that Erik Feig’s Picturestart ...

‘Jacob’s Ladder’ Remake Release Date Set for This Summer, Unless We’re Dreaming

The unnecessary Jacob’s Ladder remake was supposed to open earlier this year, but was pulled from its release window at the last minute. Now it looks like we’ll finally have a chance to see it this summer. Vertical Entertainment just picked up the rights to the film, and plan to release it this summer. This Jacob’s Ladder is being described as a “reimagining” of the 1990 horror movie of the same name. This new take, directed by David M. Rosenthal, will tell a completely different story, and cha...

‘Child’s Play’ Behind-the-Scenes Video Shows How they Brought the New Chucky to Life

I’m trying to remain cautiously optimistic about the new Child’s Play. As a fan of the original franchise, I was initially against this remake. But the casting, and the footage from the two trailers, have turned me around a bit. I’m still not 100% sold, but I’m hoping to be surprised. One thing the film definitely has going for it is the use of practical effects. When this project was first announced, I figured a terrible CGI Chucky would be used. But as this new Child’s Play behind-the-scenes ...

‘Saw’ Reboot Coming From Chris Rock (Yes, That Chris Rock)

The Saw movies always ended with a big twist, but here’s a real-life twist I don’t think anyone saw coming. Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock – is set to star in and produce a new Saw reboot, with franchise filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman returning to direct. Rock came up with the idea for the film himself, and despite his presence, this isn’t going to be a comedy. Instead, the actor has cooked up something “really intense and twisted.” Ready for more Saw? Actually, let me amend that. Ready fo...

‘Cruella’ Adds Emma Thompson to the ‘101 Dalmatians’ Villain Origin Story Starring Emma Stone

Walt Disney Pictures is still going full steam ahead with their slate of live-action remakes of their animated classics. However, in the case of one of their most famous movies, they’re taking a different live-action approach. Since 101 Dalmatians was already remade into a live-action movie back in 1996 (and even spawned a sequel), Disney is giving the fashionista villain Cruella de Vil her own movie starring Emma Stone as a younger version of the deranged woman who wants to make a coat out of ...
