Looks like Warner Bros. is hoping they can replicate the success Columbia had with '21 Jump Street' with a small-to-big screen reboot of their own: the studio has hired Dax Shepard to write, direct, and star in a film version of the classic cop series 'CHiPS,' and he's bringing Michael Pena along for the ride.
Although 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' was a pretty big success for DreamWorks Animation and just soared past the $600 million mark worldwide over the Labor Day weekend, it looks like it'll be a little while longer before we see the further adventures of Hiccup and his pals: the studio has just announced that the third installment in the series has been pushed back to 2017.

So put on those old flared jeans and join us as we take a look back at the best teen comedies of not-so-long-ago.
One of the biggest issues in the news this week has been the ongoing rampant misogyny and outright terrorism in gamer culture, specifically the attacks on Depression Quest developer Zoe Quinn and feminist media commentator Anita Sarkeesian -- both of whom have suffered exceedingly personal attacks and threats on their lives (including the horrible one in the graphic above, which was sent to Sarkeesian via Twitter). The former for merely talking sexual agency as an independent, adult woman, and the latter for criticizing the industry's treatment of women in its games. What do these issues have to do with the rest of geek culture? Well .... everything. Misogyny in gamer culture is a symptom of a larger, systemic issue. And something needs to be done about it. Now.
This week marks the 75th anniversary of 'The Wizard of Oz,' the classic 1939 film that stands out in the minds of many as one of the greatest films in cinema history. But what you may have forgotten is Disney's often overlooked 1985 sequel, 'Return to Oz' -- the arguably more faithful but much darker and totally terrifying follow-up that eschewed the musical elements and the vibrant colors to embrace metaphors about childhood trauma and escapist fantasies ... you know, for kids.
Reboots have become an inevitable part of movies, and while we can pretty much understand rebooting franchises like 'The Mummy' or even giving Anne Rice's 'The Vampire Chronicles' another go, do we really need to reboot the 'Underworld' franchise so soon? Apparently we have our answer.
