Back in 2012, Steven Spielberg was set to direct an adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s Robopocalypse. But a year later, Spielberg delayed the project and put it back in development, with no dedicated timeframe for getting the film made. If you were wondering what it might have (or might still) look like, new concept art shows us some of the character and tech designs intended for the film.

The latest batch of character posters from Crimson Peak echo the first motion poster for Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror story, which featured Mia Wasikowska bathed in neon blue and red. That vivid coloring contrasted with empty blackness made quite the impression, and the latest characters posters are similarly striking.

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters already has an insanely great cast: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Chris Hemsworth. But a Ghostbusters needs more than Ghostbusters. There must be ghosts, along with assorted kinds of bureaucracy to bust along the way. To that end, Feig is filling out the rest of his Ghostrebooters with some more talented actors.

The new Star Wars movies have been going out of their way to assemble a new cast of diverse actors. The days of the token Lando are a thing of the past – Star Wars: The Force Awakens will feature a lead in John Boyega and Star Wars: Rogue One has locked down the very talented Riz Ahmed. The latest actor to supposedly enter the fold is the actor and martial artist Donnie Yen, one of the great badasses of international cinema ... and the kind of name that will add all kinds of zeroes to any American film’s Chinese release.
