Aardman Animations brought us the story of a group of chickens escaping the coop and a cheese-loving inventor and his dog. Now the British animation studio behind Chicken Run and Wallace and Gromit is going back to prehistoric times for the story of a caveman and his sidekick pig, Hognob.
Rumors have swirled around the gestating production of New Mutants like so many Terrigen Mists since it was first announced around a year ago. We‘ve pinned down The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone as the hand on the steering wheel, he’s confirmed that The Witch starlet Anya Taylor-Joy will take one of the leading roles as Magik, and she’s confirmed that James McAvoy will reprise his role of the young Professor Charles Xavier. But even as the production’s projected spring start date rapidly approaches, little else is known for sure about this lower-profile superhero picture.
Teen love is simply too pure for this compromised world. (In the movies, anyhow. In real life, the love between teens is like a knockoff version of love you’d buy in Chinatown for eight dollars.) Cancer drove Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort apart in The Fault in Our Stars, and in the new film The Space Between Us, the vague atmospheric chemistry of Earth separates Asa Butterfield from his one true love Britt Robertson. Butterfield’s coming back for seconds at the teen-weepie-romance buffet, too, as a new report from Deadline indicates today.
Game of Thrones isn’t necessarily known for its seasonal cliffhangers (Season 5 was more “did that really happen?” than “what happens next?”), but might the penultimate year leave us on a mammoth twist? That’s the suggestion from series star Maisie Williams, claiming “We’ve come to the climax and it’s rolling down to the end.”
Even the deadest of dead Game of Thrones characters are hardly off-limits by Season 7, though it had appeared Season 6 made short work of lingering figures to tighten up its final years. Surprisingly, we may not have seen the last of a Game of Thrones villain who made a brief return in Season 6, despite a pretty large hole in his neck. Allow us to explain.
The broad-strokes version of Netflix’s unfortunately titled new film iBoy — “mild-mannered nerd acquires unlikely superpowers, which he then uses to fight crime” — may sound like a take on a story we’ve already heard a dozen times. But could Spider-Man intercept text messages? Could Batman hack into secret computer servers using only his brain? Does Superman have a charming British accent? The answer to these questions is no, no, and no. All will be rectified, however, when the new action picture comes to Netflix on January 27.
Game of Thrones may be debuting later in 2017 than usual, but our first look at Season 7 is right on schedule. Check out the newest official footage, as HBO’s 2017 preview reveals Arya becoming a Northern girl once more!
Game of Thrones advanced far enough by Season 6 to stage its own meta-play of the major events, allowing creators to blow off a little steam in the process. We didn’t see the half of it, apparently, as a new Season 6 deleted scene reveals a greatly extended look at the play, allowing Arya a few potshots at would-be critics of the production.
Game of Thrones Season 6 still managed to keep a number of secrets under wraps, even as fans eagerly picked apart every set photo, and Season 7 may be no different. Certain members of a certain family have now been photographed in close proximity, which may or may not suggest a major reunion in Season 7.
Game of Thrones dominated the Iron Throne of the Emmys for the second year in a row. And honestly, who was surprised?
