If You Wanted a Cyberpunk ’47 Ronin’ Sequel Set 300 Years in the Future, We Have Good News

Typically, when a movie performs so poorly that it earns a reputation as one of the biggest box office bombs of a given year, it’s a good sign that the film in question won’t be getting a sequel. But inexplicably, that maxim does not seem to apply to the 2013 Keanu Reeves film 47 Ronin, because that movie is getting a cyberpunk sequel set 300 years in the future. Deadline says that Netflix will distribute this 47 Ronin sequel, which will be produced by Universal 1440, the production arm of Un...

‘The Babysitter’ Sequel Coming Next Month to Give You More of That McG Horror You Crave

The Babysitter is back, baby! Well…sort of. Samara Weaving played the titular babysitter in the 2017 horror-comedy from director McG, but since she’s kind of a big deal now – winning raves for her work in Ready or Not and appearing in the upcoming Bill and Ted Face the Music – she’s not returning for the questionable sequel. But some of the other cast members are back, even though they died in the first film. The magic of movies! The sequel, The Babysitter: Killer Queen, will arrive on Netflix ...

‘My Spy 2’ Being Considered by Amazon and STX

My Spy, a film that was finished shooting in 2018, sat around for a few years, got delayed multiple times, and then finally got dumped onto Amazon, might be getting a sequel. The PG-13 family comedy from STX starring Dave Bautista as a CIA agent who teams up with a child (Chloe Coleman) debuted on Amazon Prime Video in June, and now STX and Amazon are thinking about a follow-up film with the original cast returning. The movie reportedly did well on Amazon, and that seems to be enough of a reaso...

Get an Up Close Look at Leia’s Lightsaber from ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’

For many, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker wasn’t exactly the thrilling conclusion to the Skywalker saga that fans had been waiting for. But if there’s one element of the finale that was satisfying even to those who disliked the movie overall, it was the flashback to Leia’s Jedi training with Luke Skywalker, where it was revealed that the Princess turned General had built her own lightsaber, making her a full-fledged Jedi. We only briefly see Leia’s lightsaber in the movie, but thankfully, a ne...

‘Tron’ Sequel Moving Forward With Garth Davis Directing Jared Leto

Ten years after Tron: Legacy and 38 years after the first Tron, Disney appears ready to make yet another Tron movie. Garth Davis (Lion) is set to helm the new Tron sequel and Jared Leto will star, and while this will no doubt excite fans who have been clamoring for another Tron flick, I have to ask: are these two choices really the best Disney could do here?

New ‘Dirty Dancing’ Movie in the Works at Lionsgate with Jennifer Grey Returning to Star

Dirty Dancing is one of those staple romances of the 1980s that is still so popular today that it stands among the likes of Back to the Future, Jaws, and Ghostbusters as movies that are currently playing in drive-ins around the country and always seem to be on television every single weekend.

During a Lionsgate earnings call today, company CEO John Feltheimer revealed that not only is a fifth Wick movie in the works, but that the studio plans to film that sequel back to back with the upcoming fourth film. Yeah, I’m thinking he’s back (to back).

No, ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Will Not Be Blowing Up a Historical Bridge and Christopher McQuarrie Has a Very Long Explanation for It

The Mission: Impossible franchise has done it all: it has crashed motorcycles, blown up trucks, and dangled its star Tom Cruise out of planes, helicopters, off cliffs, and out of the tallest skyscraper in the world. So it was almost unsurprising when reports came out that the Mission: Impossible 7 crew were planning to blow up a bridge in Poland. But the film production was met with immediate backlash when it was reported that said bridge was an 111-year-old historical landmark, a piece of the ...

‘Bill and Ted Face the Music’ Shifts Back to August 28 as a New Featurette Shines a Light on Bill & Ted’s Daughters

But here we are, nearly 30 years after Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, and the Wyld Stallyns are still trying to save the world with their music.

‘Pineapple Express 2’ Didn’t Get Made Due to a Budget Disagreement with Sony

Pineapple Express was one of Seth Rogen‘s biggest hits, raking in over $101 million worldwide on a budget of just $27 million. So you would think that Sony Pictures would have been chomping at the bit to get a sequel off the ground. Well, at one point the studio was very interested in making Pineapple Express 2, but in one of those reminders that the movie business is more about the business and less about the movie, Sony balked at the budget proposed by producer Judd Apatow. Seth Rogen recen...

‘Wonder Woman 3′ May Mark the End of Patty Jenkins’ Time with the DC Comics Franchise

Director Patty Jenkins brought life back into the DC Extended Universe with Wonder Woman. Armed with the fierce Gal Gadot in the lead role, the movie was a shining beacon of hope that not every DC Comics movie needed to be gritty and gloomy. If the trailers are any indicator, Wonder Woman 1984 will continue to brighten up the DC universe, but unfortunately, whenever Wonder Woman 3 rolls around, it may mark the end of Patty Jenkins’ involvement in the franchise. In a recent interview with the ...

No ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Sequel Being Planned Right Now, Director Ron Howard Confirms

There have been recent rumblings about some kind of follow-up to Solo: A Star Wars Story. Though disappointing box office returns had pretty much already solidified the fact that the Star Wars origin story of Han Solo wouldn’t be getting its own new franchise, rumors have been sparking in recent weeks about some kind of continuation of the plot threads established in the movie. But when it comes to rumors of an official sequel getting traction, director Ron Howard has officially debunked them. ...

Though Chia Pets feel like a relic of the 1980s and 1990s, they’ve consistently sold hundreds of thousands of different decorative planters each and every year. More recently, Chia Pets have really started to lean into pop culture themed planters, including Groot, Predator, Dustin from Stranger Things, and even all four of the Golden Girls. Now Back to the Future is following in their footsteps with a Chia Pet modeled after Doc Brown, but it doesn’t feature the likeness of Christopher Lloyd. ...

Jamie Lee Curtis‘s horror heroine Laurie Strode was front and center in David Gordon Green‘s 2018 version of Halloween, but in Halloween Kills, Curtis’s character will be taking a bit of a back seat and letting another character slide into the spotlight instead.
