‘The Mosquito Coast’ Trailer: Justin Theroux and His Family Are On the Run

The Mosquito Coast is a novel by Paul Theroux that was previously adapted into a film starring Harrison Ford. Now it’s getting another adaptation for Apple TV+, with Justin Theroux set to star. As you might notice, Theroux shares a last name with the book’s author – and that’s because he’s Paul Theroux’s nephew, which is some fun trivia you can store away in your brain right now and bring it up at your next cocktail party. In The Mosquito Coast, an inventor uproots his family and takes them on ...

The New ‘Planet of the Apes’ Movie Won’t Be a Reboot, So Please Don’t Go Bananas

There’s a new Planet of the Apes movie in the works, but if you’ve read reports stating it’s another remake/reboot, you’ve been misinformed. Maze Runner director Wes Ball has been tasked with tackling the franchise next, and he was also nice enough to jump on Twitter and confirm that whatever he’s making, it’s not a reboot. Ball was tight-lipped as to what the movie might be about, but he swears that the legacy of the previous trilogy will remain intact. Late last year, word broke that a new...

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.

‘Captain Marvel’ Tops Box Office Again in a Weekend That (Mostly) Exceeded Expectations

Captain Marvel had no problem winning a second weekend at the box office for Marvel Studios. Following the film’s massive opening weekend haul of $153 million, the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe raked in another $69.3 million at the box office. That’s only a drop of 54.8% in its second weekend, which is slightly better than the average 56% that usually happens with Marvel Studios movies. But Captain Marvel wasn’t the only movie that enjoyed success at the box office last we...

Director Rupert Wyatt Explains Why He Left the Long-Developing ‘Halo’ TV Series

  A TV series adaptation of the hit video game series Halo has been stuck in development for years. Just recently, the series set up at Showtime made some progress by hiring Robin Hood director Otto Bathurst to be at the helm of what will be quite the expensive sci-fi series. But before that, Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt was supposed to executive produce the series and direct a few episodes. Unfortunately, he left the project late last year, and now the filmmaker has prov...

‘Captive State’ Co-Writer Erica Beeney Discusses the Influence of History [Interview]

Captive State is a sci-fi thriller that moves like clockwork. Director Rupert Wyatt‘s film always maintains its propulsion without any redundancies or large chunks of tedious exposition. Like the characters trying to start an uprising in a world dominated by aliens, Wyatt and co-writer Erica Beeney always keep their story moving. Compared to other bloated or gigantic alien invasion movies, Captive State is a refreshingly minimalist and stripped down sci-fi movie. Similar to Wyatt’s Rise of the ...

Rupert Wyatt Compares His Abandoned ‘Gambit’ Movie to ‘The Godfather’

So often with superhero movies, it becomes a series of “what if’s?” What if this actor had signed on the play Superman? What if this movie had never bombed? But in the case of Gambit, the long-gestating comic book movie is one big case of “what if?” The film has had a veritable revolving door of directors, including Rise of the Planet of the Apes filmmaker Rupert Wyatt, who first signed on to helm Gambit in 2015. But Wyatt’s ambitious vision for the film was abandoned when the director left the...

Film Review: ‘Captive State’

Given the allusions to literal and thematic Trojan Horses that pepper its third act, one probably shouldn’t be surprised that “Captive State” — which opened cold on March 14 after Focus mysteriously canceled screenings for critics — actually is something of a purposefully camouflaged interloper. Although the TV ads and other promotional material appear to […]

‘Captive State’ Trailer: Rupert Wyatt’s New Film is About Alien Occupation

Matt Reeves got all the glory for the rebooted Planet of the Apes movies, which pushed the boundaries for what a genre film about talking apes could accomplish. But nestled alongside Reeves’ masterful Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes was Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a morally complex blockbuster directed by Rupert Wyatt. Now, after a brief sojourn to television and the 2014 crime drama The Gambler, Wyatt is returning to the sci-fi feature world with a new amb...
