With 'X-Men: First Class' and 'Days of Future Past' essentially rebooting the franchise for the better, there's still hope for the recently announced 'Deadpool' movie. If you've been wondering how (or if) these films and mutants will cross paths or even share a timeline with all the time-hopping, we've got an answer, courtesy of 'X-Men' producer Simon Kinberg.
Yesterday, Warner Bros. released its official upcoming release schedule, including -- surprise! -- a 'Wonder Woman' movie scheduled for 2017, putting them ahead of Marvel, who still haven't announced their own solo female superhero film. And while we know the origin of Wonder Woman in 'Batman v Superman' will be the less compelling New 52 version from the comics, there's still hope that WB can make a really interesting and fantastic 'Wonder Woman' film by doing the right thing: hiring women to make this movie.
Chris Rock: Comedian, actor, and now he can add director to his resume with 'Top Five,' a film that had plenty of people talking when it premiered at this year's film festival in Toronto. Paramount wasted no time picking the film up, and it seems like the studio is wasting very little time in getting Rock's very promising directorial debut out there as quickly as possible. Judging by the first trailer, featuring a cast of incredibly funny and talented folks, this is going to be delightful.
Here's what we know so far: 'Pacific Rim 2' is scheduled to hit theaters in 2017, and director Guillermo del Toro has previously mentioned digging deeper into concepts like the Drift and the portal which allowed the Kaiju to enter our world. That's it! That's all we know. But now there's more: the director has spoken again, this time teasing plans for a trilogy.
Following the success of 'The LEGO Movie,' Warner Bros. picked up the rights to similarly adapt the wildly popular Minecraft video game for the big screen, and now it looks like they've found their master builder: director Shawn Levy, known for helming the 'Night at the Museum' franchise.
If you're excited about 'Big Hero 6,' double-down on that excitement because Disney will be debuting a new animated short when that film hits theaters, and we've got the latest sneak peek. Meet the cute star of their latest short, 'Feast' -- a little puppy with a big appetite. This preview will make you go "aww" and probably send you running for the fridge.
Condensed down to its regular hour-long runtime, this week's second episode of 'Freak Show' still manages to offer wacky wonders and oddball delights, but the introduction of Michael Chiklis as strongman Dell Toledo presents a new conflict for our cast of characters -- and with that conflict comes a familiar problem for 'American Horror Story,' giving this particular bit of plotting a rushed feeling. And while the overbearing Dell may strong-arm his way into having everyone thinking he's top dog, his three-breasted wife Desiree seems way more interesting.
We're only about a month away from the next chapter in 'The Hunger Games' saga, and in case you needed a reminder, we've got a brand new trailer for you. In it, Katniss Everdeen also gets a reminder, but it's one of the more harrowing variety, as she's sent to District 12 to see the devastation that was wrought upon her home district in the wake of the events of 'Catching Fire.'
Ryan Gosling is taking lots of meetings this week, and in the war between Marvel and DC, a new battle has emerged: the battle over Ryan Gosling's soul. Gosling is being considered for not only the role of 'Doctor Strange,' but also for a part in DC's 'Suicide Squad' film, which, as it was announced earlier today, is being directed by David Ayer. And buried somewhere else in all this news: Gosling might also play Houdini.
We've heard some rumblings over the last few years of a possible 'Saw 8,' but after the definitive events at the end of 'Saw 7,' it seemed like the franchise definitely needed to take a breather. Now, for the first time, the producers have spoken out about their plans for a new sequel as we approach the original film's 10th anniversary. And it looks like 'Saw' director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell might just be ready to return to the series they started.
